NOT ABOUT HAIR: “It could possibly feel prefer it’s only a conversation about hair,” Tracee Ellis Ross says to Oprah in a scene from the brand new docuseries “The Hair Tales,” “but it surely’s not.”

“It never is,” Oprah says back to her.

The brand new six-part series, produced by Oprah Winfrey, Tracee Ellis Ross and Michaela Angela Davis, has premiered its first two episodes on Hulu and was celebrated last week with a dinner on the Boom Boom Room at The Standard High Line hotel. Mariah Carey joined Ross and Davis, together with Gayle King, in hosting the event, which recognized the premiere of the show, which was created by Davis.

The show, as Ross says in an episode, is “using hair as a metaphor for us to be with the humanity of us as Black women.” Throughout the series, six women — Issa Rae, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, rapper Chika, Marsai Martin, Chloe Bailey and Winfrey — discuss their very own relationships to their hair.

Carey brought her daughter Monroe to the event in a rare public appearance; Davis cowrote Carey’s 2020 book “The Meaning of Mariah Carey” alongside the music icon, and can also be cowriting Carey’s upcoming children’s book “The Christmas Princess.”

Unable to attend in person, Winfrey sent a surprise video message for the dinner guests from her home in Montecito, California.

“This was quite a journey — a pleasurable journey, to get Black women to have the fullest expression about our hair and share our stories in a way that bonds us as we need to be,” Oprah told the room. “I’m so delighted that you simply’re doing this party tonight. I could be there at your party if I wasn’t already hosting a celebration for ‘Queen Sugar’ celebrating the seventh and final season. So after all of us have some delicious foods, we’re going to observe ‘Hair Tales’ and join you all within the celebration. West Coast, East Coast…enjoy everybody.” — LEIGH NORDSTROM

HONORING DIRECTORS AND MORE: “Of my 33-year profession, Gina, it’s the work that I’m most pleased with,” Viola Davis said of “The Woman King,” presenting director Gina Prince-Bythewood with the Crystal Award on stage at WIF Honors.

She paused to audience applause.

“Since it’s ours,” the actress continued. “And also you had the scope, the vision, the talent, the bravery to bring it to fruition.”

Women in Film, the nonprofit advocating for girls in Hollywood since 1973, held its annual gala last Thursday night at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

Host Da’Vine Joy Randolph kicked off the evening before introducing Jane Fonda, who got here out to a standing ovation. Fonda, presenting an award named after her — the Jane Fonda Humanitarian Award — said she knew exactly who at hand the trophy to: Michaela Coel. Fonda praised the Emmy-winning Ghanaian British screenwriter and actress — creator of “Chewing Gum” and “I May Destroy You” — for her talent and boldness; it was in 2018 that Coel opened up about her sexual assault, inspiring her second series.

“By sharing her experience, by making a series that highlights actors and characters who’re Black, female, queer and immigrants, Michaela has created a complete recent language wherein to tackle the problem of sexual consent,” Fonda said.

Coel wasn’t within the room, to the frustration of many. “Awww,” they exclaimed in unison. As an alternative, Lake Bell joined Fonda on the mic to read a letter on Coel’s behalf.

“I need to be an element of what serves you, of what gives you a sense of enrichment and betterment, whether it’s through laughter, pain or my very own reality,” Coel wrote. “Through serving my pain, I appear to have served yours, and I’m in turn served by my story serving you. It’s an odd, beautiful and cosmic dance between us.”

A celebration of “outstanding women who’re laying the inspiration to rework Hollywood for the higher,” WIF also recognized “Riverdale” actress Lili Reinhart, given the WIF Max Mara Face of the Future Award by Maria Giulia Prezioso Maramotti (Max Mara is a sponsor for the nineteenth 12 months, joined by ShivHans Pictures, Lexus and Starz); writer-director duo Katie Silberman and Olivia Wilde of “Booksmart” and “Don’t Worry Darling”; “Abbott Elementary” creator Quinta Brunson, and the creative team for the film “She Said” — producer Dede Gardner, actress Carey Mulligan and journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who broke the Harvey Weinstein story.

Sheryl Lee Ralph got here out at hand “boss and costar” Brunson her award, belting an unexpected encore of Dianne Reeves’ 1994 song “Endangered Species.” Ralph first sang the song on the Emmys this 12 months during her win.

Before welcoming Brunson, the 65-year-old actress said she was introduced to WIF when a member “took a really young me by the hand and said, ‘You need to come and join Women in Film, because we’re a sea of white women.’” The ballroom full of laughter.

It was nice to see diversity within the room, she said. — RYMA CHIKHOUNE

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: Emma Weymouth, Marchioness of Bath, and Wes Gordon, creative director of Carolina Herrera, hosted a dinner on the Sir John Soane Museum overlooking the leafy Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London last week.

Ladies on the town, reminiscent of Frederick Windsor, Mary Charteris, Olivia Buckingham and Sabine Getty, and music artists like Eve and Celeste turned up for the occasion, sporting looks from Herrera’s recent collections.

Weymouth, who wore a layered red dress from the brand’s chalet capsule for the evening, toured the museum full of sculptures, antiques and paintings along with her guests before the dinner began.
