Jessica Chastain Thrilled to See More Diversity at ‘British Vogue’


Jessica Chastain voiced her support for changes at British Vogue as she sat front row at Ralph Lauren’s New York Fashion Week show on Tuesday (12Sep17).

The flame-haired actress stunned in a white three-piece suit, and she posed with the equally chic Diane Keaton, who rocked her signature androgynous style by sporting a black suit, white shirt, and black tie combination, finishing the look with a dark hat.

New Vogue U.K. editor-in-chief Edward Enninful also had a front row seat, and Jessica was quick to praise the work the Ghana-born fashion star is doing.

“I’m excited with what’s happening right now at British Vogue and the direction you guys are going in,” she enthused to the publication. “It’s a great passion of mine to tell stories of many people not just to have one narrative of one demographic.

“If any of us are involved in an industry that isn’t diverse, then we are part of the problem. You should always look at what you can do to create diversity.”

Since joining Vogue in August, Edward has hired his close friend Naomi Campbell, 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen, and model Adwoa Aboah as contributing editors.

Jessica and Diane weren’t the only Hollywood names to show their faces at the Ralph Lauren presentation – Katie Holmes also made a glamorous appearance in gold lame trousers and a suede biker jacket.

Meanwhile, the actress’ rumoured beau Jamie Foxx was taking in the Sherri Hill show, watching his 23-year-old daughter Corinne Foxx storm the runway.

The label’s Twitter account even uploaded a sweet snap of Jamie and Corinne backstage, captioning it: “We loved seeing this sweet moment when @iamjamiefoxx came and hugged @corinnefoxx before she hit the NYFW runway. #daddysgirl.”
