Broadway star: Lupita Nyong'o appeared on stage as her hit play Eclipsed began previews on Broadway on Tuesday
The play was written by playwright and Walking Dead actress Danai Gurira, who also attended the show.


Eclipsed centers on a group of women who are kept captive by a rebel leader in war-torn Liberia. They band together to create a community, until the arrival of Lupita's rebel new girl character upsets their routine.

On Tuesday, style icon Lupita was dressed down in costume.



Take a bow! The cast soaked up the audience applause after the show
She wore a tattered blue tank top with ripped jeans and chunky boots.
And the Star Wars actress pulled her hair up in elaborate braids and wrapped a red bandana around her head.
In addition to her Broadway run, Lupita will next be seen in the live action version of The Jungle Book.
On Tuesday, her costars Zainab Jah and Akosua Busia also joined her on stage as they re-launched the show, which officially opens on March 6.



Intense: The drama follows a group of women being kept captive by a war lord during Liberia's civil war, and is the first Broadway play to have an all-female cast and creative team
Writer and actor Danai looked glamorous in a tight colbalt blue dress with white and black geometric patterns.
She added a long black coat and heels, and wore dark red lipstick and dramatic blue eyeshadow.
The play was first produced at The Public Theater Off-Broadway, and earned rave reviews after its debut in October. It also drew a big crowd, and was extended twice before closing on November 29 after a sold-out run.
The show is also making history as the the first Broadway play to feature a cast and creative team that are all women and are all black.



Multi-talented: The Walking Dead star and writer wore a long black coat and dark heels
Also attending the first preview was actress Kathleen Turner.
The 61-year-old wore a long black coat over a grey top, and added a purple backpack as she posed for photos.
Trailblazing ballet dancer Misty Copeland, 33, also attended the preview.



Elegant: Dancer Misty Copeland wore a stylish black cape to the show

The ballerina, who became the first African-American female principal dancer at The American Ballet Theater, looked chic in a navy ensemble under an elegant black cape.

Singer Deborah Cox and Top Chef judge Gail Simmons also attended the preview on Tuesday.

The R&B singer bundled up in a black coat and cozy sweater, and added a black hat, while food writer Gail wore a long tan coat and large brimmed black hat.

'Kanye was instrumental in his recovery': Khloe Kardashian reveals rapper would play his music at stricken Lamar's bedside as a form of therapy


Khloe Kardashian has opened up about estranged husband Lamar Odom's first public appearance following his devastating drug overdose late last year.

The 31-year-old reality star revealed that brother-in-law Kanye West played a huge role in getting the athlete back on his feet and able to attend his Yeezy 3 presentation earlier this month.
http://easymese.blogspot.com/2016/02/khloe-kardashian-reveals-rapper-would.html

Khloe was talking with hosts on Hollywood Today Live on Tuesday where she said that the rapper would play his music at Lamar's bedside as he lay comatose in hospital.

'Kanye was really instrumental in Lamar getting better,' she said.


Khloe Kardashian gave credit to brother-in-law Kanye West for helping Lamar Odom get better as she talked to hosts on Hollywood Today Live
'Kanye would come to the hospital and play his album for Lamar,
'Lamar couldn't speak at this time... but he would say he could understand everything, he just couldn't get the words out and he felt really trapped in his own body which was terrifying,
'When he was finally able to speak he would say "Man, Kanye really helped me, I love that he would come'



The reality star said that it meant a lot to Lamar to make it to Madison Square Garden for Kanye's event after all he'd done for him
Khloe spoke of her amazement at the former NBA star's miraculous recovery - considering he couldn't walk only a month and a half ago - to be able to attend the Madison Square Garden event and show his support for the 38-year-old Gold Digger hitmaker.
But she wasn't so sure he was ready to be going to such a big public show.
'I did not want him to go to New York, I had a ton of anxiety, like "Is it too much stimulus for his brain?"


But the KUWTK star revealed that doctors cleared Lamar to go to the highly anticipated fashion extravaganza.

'He was good to go and it meant so much to Lamar' she said.


Musical therapy: Khloe explained that although Lamar couldn't speak at this time he later said he understood everything and once out of his coma said 'Man, Kanye really helped me, I love that he would come'
'I thought it was so dope of Kanye to want to walk out with Lamar'
Pictures from the February 11 event showed the athlete clad in sweater, beanie and camouflage jacket as he stood in the spotlight with the Only One rapper.
He also flashed a smile as he posed backstage with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Meanwhile, on this week's episode of Kocktails with Khloe, the blonde beauty talked about how much love she still has for the 36-year-old professional basketball player.



So much love: It's the second time this week Khloe has talked about Lamar's recovery as she also talked about how she hasn't ruled out reconciling romantically with the former NBA star

She told her guests that she hadn't ruled out remarrying Lamar, saying 'I mean, that would be like the best dream.


'But it's really hard to erase everything that happened. Just building a friendship back is what I'm doing now, it has nothing intimately, nothing at all, just pure love and I want someone to learn how to love themselves again.' she explained.


Following Lamar's October collapse after a four-day bender at a Nevada brothel, Khloe has stayed close by his side despite filing for divorce in 2013.


Hopes: The host told her guests on Kocktails with Khloe that she hadn't ruled out remarrying Lamar, saying 'I mean, that would be like the best dream'

Missing something? Pia Miller went braless on Tuesday as she filmed an upcoming scene for Home And Away at Sydney's Palm Beach
The mother-of two showed off her curves in the casual garment as she tied it up tightly around her waist.


She paired the piece with a ripped black denim skirt which finished half way up her thigh.

While flaunting her super toned sun-kissed tanned legs, she slipped on a pair of black and white high top converse sneakers.


Pia tied her dark brunette locks back into a low ponytail while parting her fringe to the left, covering a portion of her blemish free forehead.
She showed off her natural beauty as she opted for little makeup along with a light pink lip gloss.
While acting for the camera Pia posed with her hands firmly as she displayed a tense facial expression.
In another scene filmed by the Channel Seven network, she is spotted walking closely beside fellow co-star Isabella Giovinazzo who plays the character Phoebe Nicholson.

Kate Beckinsale vamps it up in clingy black gown with sheer lace accents at the Costume Designers Guild Awards


Kate Beckinsale turned out another amazing ensemble and that in itself was worthy of an award.

Sheer black lace panels ran down the sides while the back was a marvel of sheer design held together by a network of small buttons.


Kate wore her long, burnished brown hair pulled up in a high ponytail that showed off her bare shoulders and showcased the back as well.

She may not have won an award, but Kate was pleased to present one at the star-studded event held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.


On the catwalk? The Underworld star turned this way and that way to better showcase her gown
The brunette beauty presented the Excellence In Fantasy Film Award to costume designer Jenny Beavan for Mad Max: Fury Road.
Afterwards, Kate enjoyed a photo op with the overjoyed Beavan backstage.
Beavan, meanwhile, recently insisted that she was 'not upset' after Stephen Fry labelled her a 'bag lady' at the BAFTAs last weekend.
The costume designer has now insisted she is still good friends with ceremony host Stephen and wasn't in the slightest bit offended by his joke about her casual attire.
Jenny, who received a trophy at that awards ceremony too for her work on Mad Max: Fury Road, told The Telegraph,' Yes we are friends, and I am absolutely not upset'.
Kate also bumped into that other 'Cate' - Cate Blanchett - behind-the-scenes at the show.



Poised: Kate sat demurely at the table and her hair and make-up still looked perfect
The two actresses greeted each other warmly and clutched hands.
Kate was also spotted sitting at the table and looking like she'd barely touched her dinner.
Her hair was perfect and her make-up was impeccable from the dramatic eye shadow and liner to the rose-tinted lips.
Meanwhile, Kate and her husband Len Wiseman announced they were to divorce in November last year, after 11 years of marriage.
