The paps caught Kiernan yet again shopping on a Tuesday afternoon in Studio City. I feel like they are trying to figure out what she is cooking? That’s just me. At least she didn’t seem to mind too much and smiled for the camera.
I came across an Italian article today that may be of some importance. According to this article which I have translated and will post below it says that Kiernan will be one of nine celebs (the others including people like Tavi, Rowan Blanchard, and Kate Bosworth.
I have yet to see any English articles about this but since the presentation for Miu Miu Women’s Tales will be taking place in Italy for the Venice Days Of Authors annual event it would make sense that the first news would come from Italy. We’ll find out on September 2nd!
Chloë Sevigny’s and Celia Rowlson-Hall’s feminine looks start at the sixth Miu Miu Women’s Tales project in collaboration with the Days of Authors at the Lido of Venice.
The essence of Women’s Tales is a search for the complexities and contradictions of the contemporary world, told by the greatest female talents of art expressing themselves through cinema. This year’s Miu Miu women are nine and are Golden Globe winners, they are musicians, influencers and choreographers, are producers, actresses and writers.
From August 31 to September 2, a three-day program showing the character of the protagonists through two new shorts that join the Women’s Tales collection and the unusual, sincere, intimate conversations of great protagonists of the international show For you with the public. We will have some of La La Land’s “star cities” atmospheres thanks to the Rowlson-Hallshort film that returns to Days after two years. Chloë suggests some feelings from the Opinions of a Böll Clown , thanks to a contemporary portrait of a comic actress in solitude. We will know Tavi Gevinson and Hailey Gates ,
On August 31st will be premiered the 14th chapter of the Miu Miu home collection, directed by the multifaceted Celia Rowlson-Hall , choreographer, dancer and American filmmaker who presented the first feature film to the GdA in 2015 MA . The short (The [End) Illusion of History] combines the Hollywood musicals of the thirties with the nightmare of the Cold War of the sixties in a story in pastel shades between fear and desire to escape. On the same day, the 13th short film will be screened, directed by actress Chloë Sevigny , winner of a Golden Globe and Oscar nominee for the unforgettable Boys Do not Cry (1999). Carmen is starred by comedian actress Carmen Lynch and is a review of the highs and basses of the showbiz and portrait of a woman who lives from within. An interesting glimpse of the solitude that accompanies the stages of a tour around many cities.
What are the challenges and outlines of a career in film and media today? This question will try to find the answer to the protagonists of conversations.
It begins on the morning of Friday, September 1st, with the two short filmmakers. Celia Rowlson-Hall’s choreography was seen by millions of people in the TV series Girls , and in the irresistible pop video for Alicia Keys and MGMT.

The paps have once again caught Kiernan out and about shopping for fruits and veggies in Santa Monica! Not sure why they are so obsessed with where she buys her carrots but check out that adorable red floral dress! Not sure where she got it but its cute as hell and I’m curious as to whether or not they sell it in blue!
It seems like the paps really can’t get enough of Kiernan going grocery shopping. Once again they found her buying produce at a local farmers market. Wearing some cute starred Madewell jeans, Chloe boots and an Indiana Jones-esque hat, she picked up fruits and veggies.
Onward to website news. As you can now see we got us a new official domain! Yay! With that there are many links from our newsfeed that no longer link you to the gallery. Don’t freak! I will be working on fixing this ASAP!
Have a safe weekend everyone!
Just as we were worrying about seeing our little fashinista in more than just The Silence which is slated to start filming this fall, deadline dropped this amazing bomb on us all!
EXCLUSIVE: Kiernan Shipka, Candice Bergen, Kathryn Erbe and Jared Gilmanhave joined Frank Langella in Lapham Rising, the Charlie Kessler-directed film adaptation of Roger Rosenblatt’s bestselling novel. Langella signed on after he completed his role as the Russian spy handler on the FX drama The Americans, and after winning his fourth Tony Award for Broadway’s The Father. Rosenblatt adapted his book and the pic will shoot in the Hamptons. BCDF Pictures (Bachelorette) and the Kerry Orent Company (Money Monster) are producing.
Lapham Rising tells the story of Harry March, a retired writer whose life starts to unravel when a multimillionaire begins building a mansion across from his quiet island home in the Hamptons. Up until now, he has lived peacefully with his talking dog, Hector, a born-again Evangelical and unapologetic capitalist. To Harry, the gargantuan mansion represents the fetid and corrupt excess that has ruined modern civilization. Which means, quite simply, that this is war. Kessler makes his directing debut on the film.
Shipka went from playing Don Draper’s daughter in Mad Men to Bette Davis’s daughter B.D. Hyman in FX’s Feud; Erbe starred in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Oz, while Gilman’s breakout came in the Wes Anderson-directed Moonrise Kingdom. Langella is repped by ICM and Circle of Confusion, Shipka by CAA and Anonymous Content, Bergen by ICM Partners, Erbe by Innovative Artists and Industry Entertainment, and Gilman by ICM and Dmand Talent. Rosenblatt is repped by the Watkins/Loomis agency.
It’s hard to even believe the Mad Men star is 17. Joining the American period drama at just seven years old, picturing her in any other way than as the troubled pre-teen Sally Draper is near impossible. Shipka’s own childhood was the antithesis to her character’s, calling her coming-of-age on the show “loving and fun and casual” and her adolescence spent on set “an amazing environment… a special thing”.
Prior to the series, she grew up watching and practising musical theatre, evident in the way she enunciates every word over the phone, peppering our conversation with endearingly dramatic pauses and sudden exclamations of “Oh gosh!” She’s just seen Dear Evan Hansen when we speak—”just amazing”—and obsesses over a long list of more shows. “I mean, Wicked has a very special place in my heart,” she enthuses, ‘I’ve seen it six or seven times… The Lion King… All of them! I adore singing and I like dancing, so if I could do more of that combined with acting, that would be amazing.” Andrew Lloyd Webber, if you’re reading this, Shipka is waiting for the call.
Shipka appears as B.D., the daughter of Bette Davis (played by the inimitable Susan Sarandon) who went on to publish a scathing, and largely unverified, exposé on her mother in later life. “I think that B.D. lived her life as Bette Davis’ daughter,” muses Shipka, “and was struggling to find her way as B.D.”
Shipka and her fictional mother had none of the aggressions of their real life counterparts, calling working with Sarandon “a dream come true”. “She was a partner in crime,” she continues, “a sparring partner in those more intense scenes.” The show’s other lead, living legend Jessica Lange, sent her into fan girl fits, “Just making eye contact, I was like, ‘My life is made. I’m done. I’m good!’”
Brainchild of Ryan Murphy—the cult show creator who Shipka calls “the crème de la crème, the most amazing director/human/person/brilliant mind ever”— Feud goes further than highlighting the destructive horrors of Hollywood’s cut-throat competition. With Murphy’s Half foundation, an initiative sparked to secure gender equality in off-screen film roles, 60 percent of the show – runner’s directing slots go to women, in contrast to the industry average of 17 percent. “[Murphy] shows that it’s possible,” enthuses Shipka. “He doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. That set was incredibly diverse with so many voices, and it made for a warm, well rounded, amazing vibe.”
Since wrapping Feud (a second series is due, this time detailing the tumultuous relationship between Prince Charles and Diana), Shipka’s been stationed at home in Los Angeles, taking classes and hanging out with her dog. “I have a few things that might be lined up for later in the year, so we’ll see,” she says coyly. “The Blackcoat’s Daughter, a movie I did with Emma Roberts is out right now. That’s really exciting and fun, but besides that, I’m just waiting for the right thing.”
Having graduated high school (home school) at just 15 and already earning herself college credits alongside her astounding career, the teenager makes me feel like an underachiever. She’ll be 18 in September and meets my preemptive congratulations with, “Ugh! Don’t remind me!” College isn’t on the cards right now, but she’s educating herself through both literature and life in Los Angeles. “I love this city so much,” she effuses. “I’m really into food and art and culture. LA provides this giant landscape to explore all of that and the city and understand everyone living in it, it’s boundless. A beautiful experience.”
On her current path, by the time September and adulthood roll around, the leading-lady-in-waiting might just be ruling the land she loves so much.

On Tuesday The Blackcoat’s Daughter was released on DVD and Bluray here in the U.S. Grab you a copy if you can! Ozgood Perkins did an excellent job that would have made his father (the legendary Anthony Perkins AKA the original Norman Bates). I uploaded the Behind The Scenes Featurette from the DVD’s special features! Also keep your eyes on the gallery where I will be uploading the movie Screencaps (Spoiler Warning: If you haven’t seen the movie and plan to I wouldn’t go browsing through the album just yet!)
Anyways hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll be able to share some exciting news with you all, but until then!
Kiernan was at the Dior Cruise Fashion Show yesterday and once again slayed in all black. I don’t know why but it gave me hip Wednesday Addams vibes. The dress was perfection and the purse was to die for! She topped the look off with some black flat loafers – smart thinking in that desert atmosphere. Anyways I have uploaded the first photos to the gallery with more to follow!
