Actress Shailene Woodley has made a name for herself in Hollywood, starring in critically acclaimed films, such as The Descendants, opposite George Clooney, as Tris in Veronica Roth’s The Divergent Series film adaptation, & the romantic The Fault in Our Stars, as well as HBO’s Big Little Lies with Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon. Her diverse filmography remains true to her style in that she takes risks while offering a fresh, playful, & maturity to every red carpet appearance & role. Likewise, her recent portrayal of an unhappy wife in 1965 in The Last Letter from Your Lover, on Netflix, marked a fashionable high for the actress whose cat eye makeup & bouffant hair immersed audiences into the period drama! However. today marks her 31st birthday & I’ve gathered her most memorable gowns!
It won’t be long before actress (& Emmy-nominated producer), Grammy-nominated singer, & Rare Beauty entrepreneurSelena Gomez will be dominating 2 streaming services with Only Murders in the Building continuing its second season on Hulu, as well as the return of Selena + Chef on HBO Max for a 4th season, boasting lots of fun & food love already, at least based on the trailer below. The celebrity chef-in-progress takes her gaggle of gal pals to an already screen-seasoned Malibu beach house, where both Hannah Montana & Big Little Lies were filmed. Famous chefs / mentors set to appear with Selena on the show include familiar faces to the kitchen, such as Adrienne Cheatham, Devonn Francis, Gordon Ramsay, Kristen Kish, Ludo Lefebvre, Matty Matheson, Nick DiGiovanni, Paola Velez, Priya Krishna, & Rachael Ray!
There are 2 very remarkable accomplishments for Selena + Chef:
1. The show launched in August 2020 for 10 seasons that were meant to connect audiences during a time of disconnection; streaming, food, & entertainment served as society’s escape from the pandemic. As a result, newcomers to the kitchen identified with Selena’s unfamiliarity with certain foods, skills, & utensils. Whether you were watching from the comfort of your couch or taking notes to recreate the dish yourself, everyone bonded as Selena learned to cook virtually with a variety of celebrity chefs.
2. As these celebrity chefs share their love of food & culture, a range of charities found a platform for awareness & “the series has raised $400,000” in donations to “26 nonprofit organizations,” according to People. As Selena cooks up some laughs & indulges in the spices & sweets, she’s shining a much-deserved spotlight on underprivileged communities, mental health issues, liked-minded foodies, & more!
Lastly, I’m most excited about 2 things this season: 1. Watching more of Selena’s kitchenware line Our Place x Selena, which includes 2 innovative, all-purpose items: a pan for always & a pot for always in 11 different colors! Now, that’s style! 2. What Selena wears in the kitchen!
