Social media scoop: Paris Couture Week, Sundance Film Festival, Oscar nominations

Women we love

Yes, America has a new president — but that didn't dampen the spirits of the designers at couture week and the creatives at Sundance

1. One in a 8,000
In a crowd of thousands, Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron might or might not have stood out at the Women's March in Main Street at Park City, Utah.

2. He's a legend
With Sundance Film Festival coinciding with the Women's March, other celebrities also took time to make their point across. One of them's John Legend.

3. Sundance kid
Lily Collins shared her story with the world in press interviews and the Sundance premiere of the anorexia semi-autobiographical film To The Bone. Written and directed by Marti Noxon who based the film on her own experiences, Collins also took the opportunity to share her connection with her role.

Instagram | @lilyjcollins Chilled to the bone but feeling so free. What a huge moment this is for me. Owning my past, being open, and having no shame or regrets about my experiences. Sharing my history with eating disorders and how personal this film has been is one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Thank you for all your love and support. I'm sending all of mine right back (especially today!) and remember, you are never ever alone #Unfiltered...

4. Salma's Sundance away from the cameras
Also premiering is the new Salma Hayek drama-comedy, Beatriz At Dinner, also starring John Lithgow and Chloe Sevigny. Hayek plays a holistic therapist who is invited for dinner with the woman — and a host of quirky characters — whose teenage daughter she helped care for.

5. Hidden no more
Yay, Hidden FiguresThe life about female African-American mathematicians at NASA has garnered three Oscar nods: Best picture, best adapted screenplay (from the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly) and best supporting actress for Octavia Spencer. Oscars #notsowhite, after all.

Instagram | @janellemonae These women will be hidden no more!! I can't fully articulate how PROUD I AM of EVERYONE. THANK YOU TO MY SIS @tarajiphenson AGAIN FOR BEING THE FEARLESS & BRILLIANT TEAM CAPTAIN THAT SHE IS and portraying #katharinejohnson flawlessly well. Without MS. Johnson there would be no story.  I gained two sisters for life with you and @therealoctaviaspencer .  EVERYONE MADE THIS FILM SPECIAL and it is such an honor to be a part of this incredible cast and family.

6. Paris calling
It's about time these bombshells met. In Paris to reportedly shoot a new campaign for Chanel, Paris Jackson schmoozed with Bella Hadid, who walked the brand's couture show.

7.  Sleepyheads
Also in the Chanel couture show was Kendall Jenner, who chose an apt picture of her niece North to mimic how fashion week really takes a lot of you.

8. Last minute frenzy
Before walking Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy menswear show in Paris, Joan Smalls sits still for some quick touch-ups.

10. Last one standing
The Chanel show isn't short of show-stopping, high profile beauties, and Lily-Rose Depp's one of them. Closing the show with Karl Lagerfeld as his chosen bride, the model and actress made mother and former model Vanessa Paradis (who was in the crowd) proud.   

Instagram | @lilyrose_depp A dream ☺️Chanel haute couture bride! Can't thank you enough @chanelofficial @karllagerfeld for this beautiful honor
