Serayah Slays at 'Burning Sands' Sundance Premiere with Trevor Jackson

Serayah Slays at 'Burning Sands' Sundance Premiere with Trevor Jackson

Serayah is upping the winter fashion style game at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

The actress and Empire star hit the step and repeat looking so glam for the premiere of her new movie, Burning Sands, alongside Trevor Jackson and Imani Hakim.

Executive Producer Common recently told THR about the flick: “I think we’re making a statement without having to preach. Everything doesn’t have to be only protests…because it’s about us understanding each other.”

He added, “It’s about us understanding as human beings. For us as viewers to get the experience we see in Burning Sands, we get a better understanding of what it is to be a young, black man growing up trying to find himself.”

Burning Sands will make its premiere on Netflix in March.

Tyler Oakley Joins Gigi Gorgeous & More at Sundance Film Festival For Social Change Panel

Ashleigh Murray & Rachel Crow Take Their New Movie To Sundance

Ashleigh Murray & Rachel Crow Take Their New Movie To Sundance

Ashleigh Murray and Rachel Crow gather up for a ‘family’ pic at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this week.

The two on-screen sisters premiered their new film, Deidra & Laney Rob A Train, during the annual festival in between gifting lounge and portrait studio stops.

“The thing that’s really nice about this film is particularly the diversity of this cast,” Ashleigh shared in a recent interview. “This, like Riverdale, is not diverse for diversity sake, it’s just a picture of life and the circumstances that happens to these people- it has nothing to do with their background, it just happens.”

She adds, “It’s so bizarre, and you get to see the underdog come out on top, and it’s just wonderful. There’s a great line where the antagonist tells Deidra that he ‘doesn’t need proof, all he needs to do is make a phone call.’ I think that speaks so many volumes for what is going on in the world, and I think it will give people some hope and enlightenment that it doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from, or if you look like your parents or not, you can still succeed even in the worst of conditions.”

Elle Fanning Wore a Giant Bow-Tie at Sundance!

Elle Fanning shows off her cute style with a giant bow-tie while attending Glamour and Girldaze‘s luncheon celebrating films powered by women at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday (January 24) in Park City, Utah.

Also in attendance at the event was Zoey Deutch, who was one of the co-hosts for the luncheon. She is in town with two movies at the festival and she was joined by mom Lea Thompson and Before I Fall director Ry Russo-Young.

Zoey spoke to WWD at the festival to explain how doing press there is so much different than for other movies.

“Generally when you are doing movie press, you are holed up in a room and you don’t see sunlight for 13 hours and this is so beautiful,” she said while looking out a window at the snowy scenery.

FYI: Zoey is wearing an A.L.C. sweater and pants.

Malia Obama Checks Out Sundance After Landing Film Industry Internship

Malia Obama has always been super interested in movies so it makes sense she was just spotted at Sundance Film Festival!

Malia reportedly stopped by Yarrow Theater to attend an afternoon screening of Beach Rats, a film that follows a teenage boy in New York as he navigates questions of self-identity.

Meanwhile, Malia‘s parents, Barack and Michelle, have jetted to the Caribbean for a tropical vacation after spending some time in Palm Springs, Calif.

Shailene Woodley Leads Dakota Access Pipeline Protest at Sundance

Shailene Woodley Leads Dakota Access Pipeline Protest at Sundance

Shailene Woodley is supporting Standing Rock event at Sundance!

The 25-year-old actress attended an anti-Dakota Access Pipeline event while at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday (January 23) at Zoom Restaurant in Park City, Utah.

Shailene also marched in a protest through the festival, leading to the Chase Sapphire Lounge.

During the event, Shailene called for the festival’s Robert Redford to cut relations with Sundance sponsor Chase Bank, who is funding the pipeline.

“There is a hypocrisy in talking about indigenous cultures but not doing anything, as a non-native ally, to stand with them,” Shailene explained.

Unfortunately, the following day President Donald Trump announced that he has signed orders to move forward with the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

Shailene has yet to speak out about the announcement but read what other celebrities have to say.
