This week has just begun and there’s already so much in the works. Fashion Week is on top of the list and is by far the most looked-after event of February, and goes further into the beginning of March when it’s all over (for a while). The shows began in New York, which is the place to be this week, literally, with both Men and Women following one after another. Fall/Winter 2019 is the phrase to talk about, and it will be for a while.
Yesterday’s Shows: Todd Snyder, Joseph Abboud, and Palomo Spain, the latter being the epitome of colorfulness and vibrancy in Men’s fashion, so far.

Front Row faces: Zachary Quinto, Johannes Huebl, Drake Bell, Cody Simpson, Neil Patrick Harris and more.

Next on our list is 69th edition of Sanremo Music Festival, officially starting today and ending on the 9th of February. Yesterday the Festival had a celebrity-infused red carpet event, with artists such as singer Arisa, Paola Turci, Enrico Nigiotti, rapper Ghemon, Einar and so many more. The contest is taking place at Teatro Ariston of Sanremo and is being broadcast by RAI.

Last, Deutsche drama ‘Club Der Roten Baender – Wie Alles Begann’ had its premiere in Cologne at the beginning of this week. The movie is set for its official release on Valentine’s day, definitely not in tune with hearts with chocolate, but the cast is young and talented and besides, who’s not into German dramas! As a plot, ‘The club of red ribbons – How it all began’ (translated) tells the story of six youngsters, each living their own story, till events bring everyone under the same roof of Albertus Hospital. Expect a lot of current societal issues such as family drama, body-image issues and so on. The end promises to be a good one.

Cast: Tim Oliver Schultz, Damian Hardung, Luise Befort, Timur Bartels, Ivo Kortlang, Nick Julius Schuck.

Swiss Band Pegasus is Back With a New Album and A New Music Video

Swiss pop-rock band Pegasus is back with a new single from their latest album, ‘Beautiful Life’. To celebrate the release, the guys have made a music video to go along with the poetic lyrics of their song, Metropolitans. “While somebody is dreaming, dreaming of someone like you…” and a whole bunch of tantalizing words and sentences make the song quite a motivating material for anybody who might need a lil push in a blurry day. As for the music video, I can’t get over the train ride (or is it a metro?) which seems to take place above the city drawn in lights in the darkness of the evening. Can’t wait to hear more from this new album, which so far got me hooked thanks to a good vibe selection with mellow tunes and powerful words.

Ellen Pompeo’s pink Co Resort 2018 dress is such a lovely sight on her petite figure. The shape is tasteful, while those ruffles make for the perfect details to a wonderful yet simple dress.

Congratulations to Cate Blanchett on her InStyle magazine Style Icon award to which she added an amazing speech – “Just because women dress sexy doesn’t mean we want to **** you!”. She’s one of a kind fashionista and a fierce woman. Love her. Her dress is Givenchy SS 2018.

Elle Fanning took my breath away with her sort of naughty hair, which comes as a big change to what we are used seeing from her, fashion-wise. And yes, her dress is Versace, from the iconic show Donatella held for her brother just last month, at Milan Fashion Week.

Volksbühne Theater aka Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz in the city of Berlin had been recently involved in protests, the building having been occupied since September 22 by activists represented by musicians, actors, and anti-gentrification supporters. The protests aim against the unfamiliar direction Chris Dercon, director of the Theatre since 2015, is planning on taking the Volksbühne Theater. Since yesterday, the building is out from the occupation, negotiations between the activists and Dercon being the next practical move to follow.
