Bold Face: Footloose et al…

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 remake of the 1984 classic is happening and it is closer than you might think. The movie hits theatres in October so allow Bold Face to introduce you to its two new leads and the women with ties to them both…









The modern remake of the 1984 classic Footloose will premiere in October. The new movie stars professional dancer Kenneth Wormald as Ren, the role Kevin Bacon made famous. This Footloose remains a story about a teenage boy rebelling against a town that has banned dancing and rock and roll and Wormald channels that inner bad boy in these Calvin Klein Jeans CKJ710S sunglasses from Marchon. Prior to landing his big screen break, Wormald toured as a back up dancer with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Madonna, so it sounds like the foundation of the movie remains the same but the producers have clearly upped the dancing wattage…




Speaking of dancing wattage, the role of Ariel Moore in the Footloose remake, made famous by Lori Singer in the original, is being tackled by dancer/singer/actress Julianne Hough. Hough first stole the hearts of the American public in 2007 as the youngest professional dancer to win the mirror ball trophy in the popular reality show, Dancing with the Stars, as Apolo Ohno's partner. Since then, she has released a successful country music album and filmed a few movies, not to mention her very high profile romance with a certain entertainment mover-and-shaker. Clearly the young beauty has a lot to smile about, as she is here in her Chanel 5185 sunglasses from Luxottica




It seems both our Footloose actors have ties to one woman - Christina Aguilera. As we mentioned, Wormald toured with her and Hough starred with her in the movie Burlesque. Most recently we’ve seen Aguilera as a coach on the singing competition The Voice on NBC but her voice is all over the air waves thanks to the popularity of the song "Moves Like Jagger" with fellow The Voice judge Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5. But rumor has it the Ms. Aguilera is back in the studio recording a new album, so hopefully we will soon her amazing voice again soon. Therefore, how fitting that we have her here wearing the Swarovski Amazing sunglasses from Marcolin.
