Saoirse attended the Cinemagic Film Festival, and she joined actresses Eileen O’Higgins, her close friend, and Saoirse-Monica Jackson, from the fantastic Irish show “Derry Girls”, in the panel “Conversations in Comedy”. We’re hoping to get a video of it soon! In the meantime, you can view some pictures in our photo gallery.
Hello everyone! Our gallery has been updated with two scans from the October issue of Empire magazine, which features an article about the movie Little Women, starred by Saoirse, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen. I’ve also added a still that Dani had posted on @saoirseronancom a while ago, so you might have seen it before.
It has been released the first theatrical trailer for Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women, which stars Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet and Emma Watson. In case you might have missed it, Saoirse plays Jo March – the second-eldest of the March sisters. Director Greta Gerwig’s spoke briefly with Entertainment Weekly in honor of the trailer release, about casting Saoirse for the role of Jo. The trailer and the piece of article can be found below. Little Women is set to be released in theaters on December 25, 2019.
For her tomboyish heroine Jo and romantic hero Laurie, Gerwig reteamed with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet (both of whom appear, by the looks of the trailer, to have been born for these iconic roles). “I just adore them. They are just spectacular as live actors, and there is some true pairing between them that feels like [it’s] in the tradition of great cinematic pairing,” the filmmaker tells EW and PEOPLE. “I don’t know what they do — I mean, it’s magic. I direct them, but it’s all there.”
We have added photos of the new Calvin Klein ad featuring Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o for the third fragrance of the Calvin Klein Women Fragrance line (initially released last year.) We’ll update when we have higher quality versions.
Under the slogan I AM WOMEN, the first version of Calvin Klein Women hit the shelves in August 2018, created as a tribute to femininity. Collaborating with perfumers Honorine Blanc and Annick Menardo, the first release became a real hit, offering a blend of eucalyptus, sparkling grapefruit, orange blossom, and cedar as the key and most intense notes of the composition. The second creation, Clavin Klein Women Eau de Toilette, was presented at the beginning of 2019 as a fresher and more sparkling version of the original; a bold creation for modern and confident women. The floral nuances of orange blossom and peony shine here, together with an intense lemony chord, gently settled on layers of creamy, woody ambroxan and musk.
The third creation, the newest chapter of the line, “carries the fragility and freshness of the original scent, while adding unique ingredients that intensify the texture and tension of the inherent structure. Bright, invigorating notes of lemon and cardamom reveal a bold heart that brings mystery and intensity, while woody accords add a deep sensuality and richness. Perfumer Honorine Blanc has created a structure that is both vivid and dynamic – a fresh take on bravery and femininity.”
The first promotional stills from Little Women have been released by Vanity Fair! Our gallery has been updated with the images, and you can read the article below.
Greta Gerwig doesn’t remember reading Little Women for the first time. “It must have been read to me,” she says when I ask for her earliest memories of author Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale of four girls imagining a world beyond their humble surroundings outside Civil War–era Boston.“I always knew who Jo March was,” Gerwig continues. “She was the person I wanted to be.”
In that, Gerwig has had plenty of company. Little Women is one of the most popular books in the history of American letters; after the first volume sold out its initial run of 2,000 copies in 1868, the novel has never been out of print. Simone de Beauvoir, born in 1908, pretended as a child that she was Jo—Alcott’s protagonist and stand-in, a determined, stubborn tomboy with a flair for writing. Ursula Le Guin says that Alcott’s Jo made writing as a girl feel possible. In film, Katharine Hepburn played Jo in 1933; Winona Ryder, in 1994. Now, Gerwig has created her own Jo for the screen in Saoirse Ronan, who also starred in Gerwig’s debut as a solo director, 2017’s Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.
Gerwig based that film on her own life, and Ronan’s character on herself. Still, Little Women might be even more personal to the director. (Her agent pointed this out to her, Gerwig tells me.) “This feels like autobiography,” Gerwig says. “When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life. … It becomes part of you, in a profound way.”
Saoirse was at the Cinemagic Film & Television Festival for Young People yesterday in Dublin, Ireland! She posed for pictures with tiny actress Molly McCann, and we’ve added them to our photo gallery.
Saoirse attended the Gucci Cruise event yesterday! Our gallery has been updated with a few images from it – two of which look *almost* exactly the same… but well. As customary, she was wearing a dress designed by the brand, and her plus one this year seems to have been her mom, Monica.
