Saoirse & Lupita Nyong’o talk to Carmen Hamilton

Saoirse & Lupita Nyong’o talk to Carmen Hamilton

ELLE Australia has posted a new interview with Saoirse and Lupita Nyong’o on their website! The article is part of the promotion for Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance Women. You can read the article below, and visit our photo gallery to see the new image released with it.

When it comes to inspiring women, Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o fit the brief.

Actresses and activists, both have achieved incredible success, their roles in films such as Lady Bird (Ronan) and 12 Years A Slave (Nyong’o) garnering them serious accolades and respect within the industry—not to mention an Oscar nom. It seems fitting then, that when Raf Simons set out to find a face for his debut Calvin Klein fragrance—and the brand’s first perfume launch in 13 years—the designer tapped the pair to bring his scent to life.

Calvin Klein Women is an exploration of femininity. Described as a woody floral scent with notes of eucalyptus, orange, and cedarwood, the fragrance is inspired by the transmission of strength and inspiration from one woman to the next. Within the campaign video, Ronan and Nyong’o (who met for the first time while collaborating with Calvin Klein) each nominate the women they have been most inspired by. It’s a refreshingly empowering fragrance campaign for Calvin Klein and powerful debut for Simons.

Chronicles of Her founder and fellow CK girl Carmen Hamilton sat down with Ronan and Nyong’o to chat female role models and feminism in Hollywood.

Saoirse’s first vote will be for marriage equality

Saoirse talked to the Independent.ie at the Yes Equality ‘Your Yes Matters’ campaign launch today about the importance of voting in the Marriage Equality referendum.

Academy Award-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan says she is excited and honoured that her first vote will be for marriage equality.

The 21-year-old Carlow native is eager to encourage her fellow young people to get out and vote this Friday in the Marriage Equality referendum.

Speaking at the Yes Equality ‘Your Yes Matters get out the vote’ campaign launch, Ms Ronan said this is an opportunity for her generation to create a fair and equal society.

“I’m really excited about it and I’m really honoured that my first vote is going to be a yes vote for marriage equality,” she said. “If it’s a yes vote it means we’re standing with the best of them. We’re forward-thinking, we’re fair, we’re just and we’re equal. If we don’t, then we’re none of those things and I would be extremely disappointed.”

Join Saoirse’s Birthday Project!

As I’m sure a lot of you are aware, Saoirse turns 20 years old on April 12th (this upcoming saturday), and, of course, we want to celebrate this special date! Along with our partners Saoirse Ronan Brasil and I Heart Saoirse, we are launching a worldwide birthday project dedicated to her. Fans from all over the world will be able to take part in it and interact with each other! If you’re interested in joining us, this is what you have to do:

1. We all know Saoirse rarely uses her twitter account, but that doesn’t mean we won’t try to trend something in her honor. What if she logs in that day and sees it? We’ll be tweeting “Happy Birthday Saoirse Ronan”. Along with the hashtag, we’ll write quotes, random facts about her, edited photos and much more.

2. Another way of taking part in our project is by taking a photo of yourself with a note dedicated to Saoirse – you can write any message you want, just make sure it is legible so that we can all read it. We’ll be retweeting those images so that her other fans can see how much you admire Saoirse. You can also send us edited images of her with your messages included, and we’ll retweet those too.

Let us know if you have any questions! You can leave a comment on this post or contact us via Twitter.
