With a scene replicating the Met Gala, the upcoming female-led Ocean’s 8 is guaranteed to contain numerous cameos from fashion’s biggest designers and icons. Word has it that the film’s party scene will include appearances from Alexander Wang, Zac Posen, Derek Blasberg, Lauren Santo Domingo,Tommy Hilfiger, Jason Wu, Jonathan Simkhai, Dennis Basso, and Anna Wintour among others. Don’t we love seeing the seemingly stoic and serious Anna Wintour’s playful side as she appears in movies and other pop culture events?
It doesn’t stop there though! Models Liu Wen, Hailey Baldwin and Cindy Bruna have reportedly also signed on as part of the cast. Rappers Desiigner and Tyga will appear, as well as Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova. Ocean’s 8 even brings in famous athletes Maria Sharapova, Olivia Munn, athletes Nick Mangold and Matt Harvey! The film is racking up cameos faster than we can keep track of!
With so many key celebrities and fashion players on the film’s roster, Ocean’s 8 is sure to have no shortage of amazing looks, styles, and an air of chicness. Just recently, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were seen heading to set decked out in Givenchy and Elie Saab, respectively. Rumor has it that Kardashian’s cameo will center around a jewelry theft in the bathroom at the party.
Seems familiar, no? The starlet was just recently robbed of her jewelry in her apartment as she visited Paris. Kardashian, was at the apartment with $11 million worth of jewelry, yet no bodyguard the night she was reportedly robbed at gunpoint and left bound and gagged in the bathroom. She was apparently so traumatized by the event that she stayed under the radar for many months after, recieving much backlash. It seems not only very odd but also tasteless that the star would be so willing to participate in a scene that is so oddly similar to the experience that was so traumatizing. This leaves us with the question everyone has been asking: was it just all just a publicity stunt?
