Jodie Turner-Smith in Bloom

Published

on

You know that saying about how anything Fred Astaire did, Ginger Rogers did backward and in high heels? It comes to mind as Jodie Turner-Smith recounts filming the action movie Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse while in her second trimester of pregnancy—something her costars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were quite assuredly not dealing with. “The men think they’re hard-core,” the actress says, cracking up, “but they could never do what they do while also making a baby. They just couldn’t.”

For Turner-Smith, the fight scenes took a back seat to the humanity of the story. “True strength is not found in force and brutality, but in vulnerability,” she says. “I would love to do more action, and action where I’m allowed to be a woman,” she adds, citing Sigourney Weaver’s classic turn in Alien. “I know we don’t maybe class that as specifically an action film, but I mean, what she’s doing in that? Fucking brilliant.”

On the opposite end of the spectrum—except in the sense that she’s also what a streaming-service menu might consider a Strong Female Lead—is Anne Boleyn, whom Turner-Smith has signed on to play in an as-yet-unnamed series. The English queen’s tragic story has been told countless times via film (The Other Boleyn Girl), musical theater (Six), and literary fiction (Hilary Mantel’s Bring Up the Bodies), but Turner-Smith has a theory about why we’re still, nearly a half-millennium after her beheading, so enthralled by her. “We can only infer who she was, because she left no paper trail that would hint at her imagination. She’s endlessly fascinating for that reason,” she says. With her portrayal, Turner-Smith wanted to “tell the story of the woman who sits at the center of the myth, and make that story an accessible one—one that’s not entirely about class, but about humanity. Because whether a woman is a queen or a housekeeper, she is not exempt from any of the challenges and trials that women face in navigating their bodies, love, or the patriarchy,” she says. “There’s an opportunity to tell a really human story and for it to feel that much more accessible because a Black woman is playing her.”

    As if this weren’t already enough range for one person, Turner-Smith is also playing opposite Colin Farrell in After Yang, about a family with a robot among its ranks. While the film has a sci-fi bent, it also has, she insists, a very intimate focus on “family and connection and what that really means in the age of technology.”

    “Black artists are not only the engine, but also the car. We are in the driver’s seat.”

    Turner-Smith, of course, is no stranger to tackling weighty issues onscreen. In 2019, she starred in Melina Matsoukas’s Queen & Slim, a tale of Black love and survival that has become even more powerful in the wake of this past summer’s Black Lives Matter protests. “I really think that we made a classic, and [that] 10 years from now, it will be viewed that way as well,” she says. “Black artists are not only the engine, but also the car. We are in the driver’s seat, telling our own stories.” Including Turner-Smith herself, who made her directorial debut this fall with Jackie, a short film created in collaboration with Gucci and Dazed magazine (she became an ambassador for the house in 2019). To finally be behind the camera, she says, was “so incredible, so empowering. To have my hand in everything—to choose every shot, every look, and approve every piece of set decoration; to see the edit, and sit for hours and select the color grade” was her idea of heaven. Her husband, actor Joshua Jackson, “sat with me, being my biggest supporter and my brain trust, and we watched all these references, and he let me bounce all these ideas off him until all hours of the morning.” Her relationship with the Gucci team, including the house’s polymath creative director, Alessandro Michele, sounds similarly collaborative. Working with them “is so natural and feels so lived-in,” she says.

    Speaking of natural and lived-in, here Turner-Smith wears pieces from the house’s glamping-friendly capsule with The North Face. Thanks to Jackson, who grew up in Vancouver, she’s been converted to the outdoor lifestyle. “If we can mix fashion with me getting my outdoor situations on, it’s a very beautiful marriage of two things,” she says, adding that for her lately, fashion has become a form of self-care. She likes “this idea of dressing up for you, of putting something on to enhance your own mood, just to do what you want to do and not necessarily even leave the house—because right now we’re not even doing that. It’s like telling a story about how you feel with what you wear,” she says. “We all need a little bit of carefree energy right now.”

    In between acting and directing, Turner-Smith recently gave birth to her daughter. Doing so during a global pandemic has been challenging, but Turner-Smith is grateful to have had her mother by her side throughout. “Navigating parenthood at any time is difficult,” she says, “and it’s even more difficult without support, when everything is shut down and you can’t really see other people or go anywhere.” She’s quick to point out that moms of school-age children have it much harder right now: “I’m not having to sit on Zoom with her and suddenly become her educator as well as her caretaker,” she says of her daughter. Childbirth ultimately taught her another lesson about strength. “Patriarchal society really is out here, scamming women into thinking that they’re not supremely powerful beings,” she says, chuckling. “Because damn, it’s some goddess-level shit.” ▪

All About Ashley Olsen’s Boyfriend Louis Eisner, the Artist She’s Been Low-Key Dating for Years

All About Ashley Olsen's Boyfriend Louis Eisner, the Artist She's Been Low-Key Dating for Years


Ashley Olsen and her twin Mary-Kate Olsen have kept their lives as private as two world-famous child stars-turned-adult designers can manage. But while the girls haven’t spoken about their love lives, the tabloids and paparazzi have gotten some details on who they’re with. Mary-Kate has been married to Olivier Sarkozy since 2015 but requested an emergency divorce in May 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic. That divorce was finalized in January 2021.

Ashley, meanwhile, is currently dating a 32-year-old artist, Louis Eisner. The two have been photographed together a couple times. After nearly a year not being seen, they signaled their relationship is still on and strong this past Sunday when they were photographed out in New York City on a date.

Here, details on who Eisner is along with his and Ashley’s dating history.

What does Louis Eisner do?

Eisner is a bicoastal artist who grew up in California. His mother Lisa is a famous fashion photographer and jewelry designer, so there’s art in his blood. He wrote a glowing caption about her on his Instagram last Mother’s Day. “You gave me life and also taught me how to find its magical beauty,” he wrote to her. “Forever thankful to you and all the mothers in the world.”

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

He was featured in Interview back in December 2010, where the outlet noted that Eisner went to Columbia University and studied art history. He was part of Still House Group, a collective of young artists, for years after he graduated.

You can see some of his paintings formerly on auction at Artnet.com. He has a more abstract style. Apparently Ivanka Trump bought an Eisner piece in 2013, so his work is part of her art collection.

How old is Eisner?

Eisner was born on July 31, 1988, so he’ll be 33 this summer. He shared a shot from his high school yearbook on his Instagram, which publicly revealed his birth date. He’s a Leo!

When did he and Ashley meet and start dating?

Not much has been revealed about the two’s romance. RadarOnline reported back in February that the two quietly started dating in 2017 after being just friends for years. Grazia notes they were first seen publicly at the Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden in October 2017.

They allegedly met through mutual high school friends and have known each other for more than five years.

Are Ashley and Louis close with Mary-Kate and Olivier Sarkozy?

When that Mary-Kate first separated from her husband of nearly five years in May 2020, Ashley was supportive of her sister during this time. A source told E! that Mary-Kate was quarantining with Ashley and a group of friends outside of New York City. “It’s gotten very ugly between them [Mary-Kate and Olivier],” the source said, referring to it as a “heated divorce.” Mary-Kate is “done with constant drama,” the source added.

But before Mary-Kate and Olivier’s relationship ended, they were seen out a few times with Ashley and her significant other. In June 2019, the sisters celebrated their 33rd birthdays with Eisner and Sarkozy by their sides, according to E!. And in November 2019, the Daily Mail ran photos of the Olsen twins with their respective partners, double-dating at Bowery Hotel’s Gemma restaurant in New York City.

How serious are Ashley and Eisner now?

Radar’s source in February 2019 said the two were “very much in love.”

An insider also explained to Radar that Eisner likes his privacy, and that’s why he hasn’t walked any red carpets with his girlfriend. (Ashley seldom walks red carpets, for what it’s worth.) “It’s not that they are trying to keep their relationship on the down low, Louis just doesn’t like the spotlight—even less so than Ashley,” the source said.

Back in 2018, a source told the outlet that they’re not about to get married either. “They’re not in a rush,” Radar’s source said. “He’s a long-term relationship kind of guy, but he doesn’t follow societal norms.”

In Mary-Kate and Ashley’s August 2018 WSJ magazine interview, the outlet noted that Ashley was contemplating moving to Los Angeles full-time. This could be in part because that’s where Eisner has been based. A 2017 New York Times profile on his mom described him as commuting back and forth between Los Angeles and Mexico City.

Eisner has been to some major public events for Ashley. He was at her and Mary-Kate’s 33rd birthday party in New York City, E! reported, where he had dinner with their friends and Mary-Kate’s husband.

On July 29, 2019, the couple made a rare appearance out in Pacific Palisades, California, where they were photographed going to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Is Eisner on social media?

Eisner has an Instagram, which mostly shows artwork. He does, however, share personal photos from time to time, although he has never posted any of him and Ashley together. He posted one about his brother in March 2018.

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

He also shared a yearbook photo of himself in January 2019, writing, “Tbt Senior page. Forgot to give them a baby photo but now this is my baby photo.”

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

How are Eisner and Ashley doing during the coronavirus pandemic?

A year into quarantining, Eisner and Ashley’s relationship is still very much on. The couple of nearly four years now was photographed in New York City on Sunday, March 14 on a double date with friends. Daily Mail ran photos of the two alongside each other in coats. Eisner, in one shot, has an arm around Ashley’s back. According to the outlet, the couple had dinner and wine with W magazine editor-in-chief Sara Moonves and her boyfriend, fashion photographer, Jeff Henrikson.

Lorraine Schwartz is Giving Back in Diamonds


March marks the beginning of spring, so new spring fashion is just around the corner (even if it’s not quite time to put away your winter coat yet). We’re rounding up the hottest drops of the month, and this week brings an initiative to help BIPOC jewelry designers, spearheaded by jewelry legend Lorraine Schwartz.

Come back for more as we continue to update our gallery with the latest fashion news and launches that you do not want to miss.

Lorraine Schwartz Announces BIPOC Jewelry Designer Initiative

Who: Lorraine Schwartz

What: Emerging Designers Diamond Initiative with the Natural Diamond Council

Why: Lorraine Schwartz is initiating a one-of-a-kind program with the Natural Diamond Council with $1 million dollars of diamond credit dedicated to supporting emerging Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) jewelry designers. Young designers have an especially hard time accessing diamonds with limited resources, and Schwartz wants to provide these designers with the contacts and finances needed to get their brands off the ground. The program, announced in January, will offer mentorship and $20,000 credit to each designer and stand as a guarantor with the diamond supplier. A well-appointed selection committee including Lorraine Schwartz, NDC CEO David Kellie, Nicole Chapoteau of Vanity Fair, and celebrity stylist and designer Jason Rembert will review and approve designer applications until the $1 million diamond credit runs out. Honorary advisors Pharrell, Kelly Rowland, and Tina Knowles will also lend their expert opinions at various stages of the program. The committee has just announced the first six designers participating in the program: Constance Polamalu of Birthright Foundry, Dorian Webb of Dorian Webb, Lisette Scott of Jam + Rico, Malyia McNaughton of Made by Malyia, Marvin Linares of Marvin Douglas Jewelry, and Jameel Mohammed of KHIRY (all pictured here). The goal is to start endorsing, financially and creatively, more diverse viewpoints and allowing voices previously unable to break through in the industry the space to flourish.

Meghan Markle’s Veja Sneakers Are 30 Percent Off Right Now

It’s been a few years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s October 2018 Australia royal tour, but one accessory to emerge from the trip has remained steadfast: the effortlessly chic Veja sneakers the Duchess of Sussex sported on a boat in Sydney.

Bandier currently has a handful of Veja styles on sale for 30 percent off as part of a friends and family sale that kicks off today, March 16. The sale covers most of the luxe e-tailer’s site and savings are reflected in cart at checkout.
