Bold Face: Diva!


Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

The word ‘diva’ has all sorts of connotations, some good… some bad, but in this edition of Bold Face it’s all good with three ladies who have proved they have the chops to be called Diva!

The sensationally talented Lea Michele stars as the fame hungry Rachel Berry on the hit FOX show Glee. Before TV, Michele earned her stripes on Broadway in shows like Les Misérables and Spring Awakening. In a somewhat Meta sort of full circle the character that has brought her international fame aspires to exactly that - becoming a star on the Great White Way. Even in her off time Michele enjoys surrounding herself with music, she was recently snapped at the Coachella music festival in California at the Lacoste L!VE pool party in the Lacoste L627S sunglasses from Marchon

Adele is 23 years old and she has already earned eight Grammy Awards. In fact she is so successful she has actually earned numerous mentions in the Guinness Book Of World Records for the number of album sales records she has broken. In addition to making Bold Face feel like a total under achiever, by all accounts Adele is actually a super cool chick. She certainly has enviable taste in eyewear; here she wears the Linda Farrow Luxe Snake Skin sunglasses. Next up for the British siren is the Billboard Music Awards where she is a finalist in a whopping 18 award categories! The Billboard Music Awards take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 20 and will be broadcast live on ABC…

Speaking of Billboard Award nominations, our last diva hasn’t done too shabby this year either. Rihanna is also finalists in a number of categories, 13 total. Not surprising when you know she is the highest-selling digital artist in U.S. history, having sold 47,571,000 singles as of 2012. In fact, Time magazine named her one of the most influential people in the world. No doubt she will only become more influential thanks to the debut of her first feature film, Battleship, which will premiere in the U.S. on May 18 (2 days before the Billboard Awards!) RiRi is already a serious fashion influencer, just look at the awesome Thierry Lasry Orgasmy sunglasses she was snapped wearing recently. Dies.
