Anna Wintour: Vogue/ YouTube
If you’re interested in the publishing industry and/or behind the scenes drama — and who isn’t? — you’ll want to keep an eye out for “All That Glitters,” a six-hour series that portrays the complicated relationship between two magazine titans, Anna Wintour and Tina Brown. Variety reports that Bravo has greenlit the project, which hails from Gale Ann Hurd (“The Walking Dead”) and Judith Verno (“Masters of Sex”).
Based on a true story, “All That Glitters” focuses on the “friendship and rivalry” between Vogue’s Anna Wintour and Tina Brown of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. “As both bold and driven women fight their way to the top of a male-dominated industry driven by greed and betrayal, they each find new paths to change the world around them — Tina, through the intersection of high-culture and celebrity, and Anna with an instinct for high fashion and emerging talent,” the source writes.
The project is being produced by Universal Cable Productions and Sony Pictures, and frequent collaborators Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal (“Roots,” “Mona Lisa Smile”) are writing and serving as exec producers. No word on who will be directing yet, but hopefully the roster includes women, especially since “All That Glitters” follows female pop culture icons who, as Variety notes, made their names in male-dominated fields.
Back in January Freeform greenlit “The Bold Type,” a series inspired by the life of former Cosmo Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles. Created by Sarah Watson (“Parenthood”), the show is expected to premiere this year and will feature 12 episodes.
Scripted Series About Anna Wintour and Tina Brown Greenlit by Bravo was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

This film is about an outrage. Maybe it is an outrage. It has invented a new genre: the rape-revenge black comedy, and it could not possibly have existed without Isabelle Huppert. She is the only star capable of carrying this off, the only actor with sufficient hauteur to reassure you that all of the film’s provocations are 100% intentional. It would be inconceivable without her armoury of tics: the Mona Lisa smile of faint amusement, the veiled mask of weary disapproval, or the occasional widening of the eyes to indicate fleeting astonishment at something or someone more than usually stupid. She has a face that makes it look as if she is wearing a pair of exceptionally expensive and stylish dark glasses, even when she isn’t. »

When she’s not fighting evil as Marvel’s badass heroine Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter has a totally docile off-duty hobby: Knitting. “Yarn, patterns and needle sizes have come such a long way since your grandmother’s afghans. Creatively, there is just so much to get into, so much to play with,” the actress tells People Style. “It’s an amazing way to turn inward and get off your phone.”
Now, the actress has taken her love for the calming act of weaving wooly work to the next level: She’s created her own pattern and kit with We Are Knitters. »
