Clients: Tom Hiddleston, Casey Affleck, Donald Glover, James Marsden, Nina Dobrev, Bradley Cooper, Anya Taylor-Joy
Why she matters: For many of the town’s most dashing gents, Urbinati turns out timeless menswear with a twist, using color, pattern and sometimes tailored separates instead of suits. “I had 15 people Oscar night, including two winners,” namely, best director Damien Chazelle and best actor Affleck. “It was nuts!”
Top looks: The former clothing buyer’s choices included Gucci DIY tuxes with piping for Hiddleston at the Emmys, and in brown velvet for Atlanta two-time Globe winner Glover, 31 (“I don’t know anyone who could have pulled that off better,” says Urbinati). She also avoided playing it safe with Manchester by the Sea’s Affleck, 41, at the Spirit Awards: “When the Muslim ban happened, Casey took a baseball shirt to be embroidered with ‘Love’ on it in Arabic. He wore it under a royal blue Brioni suit. Twitter went nuts, and I was so proud.”
With a great nimbleness, The Night Manager makes change look very good.
“The center of the novel is arms dealing. It was happening in the early 90s, and of course it’s happening now,” reflects Tom Hiddleston on the updating of John le Carré’s 1993 novel for event television. Personified by leads Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, the Susanne Bier-directed miniseries stands on the giant shoulders of le Carré’s prose, deftly transposing the action from the dank end of the Cold War and South American drug lords to the bloody fallout of the Arab Spring.
In the first le Carré TV adaptation in over 20 years, Hiddleston is recruited to play former military man Jonathan Pine, the hotel night manager of the title. Having been seasoned by atrocities during his tours in Iraq in the preceding decade, Hiddleston’s Pine is a haunted man suddenly “stirred,” to quote the show, to coming out from behind the 5-star lobby desk and pressing himself into action.

“We’re always trying to be someone else as women—we’re always trying to be pretty, that’s the thing—and I want her to feel like she’s her pretty.”

I heard that Jessica Lange is rude too, but I refuse to believe it
Even if she was, Jess is a two time Oscar winner, 5 time Golden Globe winner, 3 Emmys, a SAG award, among others. She also doesn’t have any social media to be rude on so even if she was rude in person it wouldn’t really matter as she is a veteran actress, who has had two divorces, children, grandchildren, fostered children. Jess is also a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, which specializes in the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and also in spreading awareness of the disease in Russia.
So basically she deserves alot of respect and tbf if she was rude to me I would still cry with happiness and don’t forget..
