Bold Face: Multi-Tasking

By

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.


Sometimes you’re just so busy you have to multi-task. The three beauties in this week’s edition of Bold Face are not only doing just that by keeping their phones close at hand while on the move, but are doing it in fabulous sunwear…

The South African Charlize Theron won a modeling contract at 16 in a local competition in Salerno, Italy and promptly moved with her mother to Milan. Thus began this Academy Award winner’s road to fame. Modeling brought her to NYC and, at 19, to L.A. Now considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the business, she is also one of the most talented and socially aware; her Charlize Theron African Outreach Project helps to support African youth in the education of and fight against HIV/AIDS. With a hot, tabloid ready romance and her new movie, Dark Places, which she co-produced and stars in, debuting in September, it’s no wonder the beauty has to multitask. Here, Theron wears the Salvatore Ferragamo SF675S sunglasses from Marchon after a workout and between destinations and calls…

English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also got her modeling start at age 16 and today may best be known for her work with Victoria's Secret and Burberry. But she has also parlayed her modeling career into one on the big screen and in 2011 had a memorable role as Carly Spencer in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third installment in the Transformers film series. Her similarities to the lovely Theron don’t end there though, outside her penchant for walking with her phone in her hand wearing great sunwear (in this case the Fendi FF 0026/S sunglasses from Safilo), Huntington-Whiteley is also in a gossip rag ridden romance with an older Hollywood leading man and will be making her next acting appearance alongside Theron in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road… 

​Cara Delevingne, the English fashion model, also has close ties to the Burberry brand. She has represented them in their advertising campaign since 2011. It is the collaboration that put her on the map and the now 21 year-old has since appeared in advertising campaigns for H&M, Zara, and Chanel; and on the catwalks for Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Stella McCartney and Chanel. Her magazine covers are too numerous to mention. But that hasn’t stopped her. She too has gotten into acting with a small part in 2012’s Anna Karenina. This year she will star opposite Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl in the thriller The Face of an Angel and will play a role in the period romance film Tulip Fever, currently shooting. It must be her busy schedule that requires her to walk and talk just to catch up with others, here she is doing so wearing the Dsquared2 DQ0134 sunglasses from Marcolin in London earlier in the month.
