Younger American audiences might know Rigg best from her role as Lady Olenna Tyrell on Game of Thrones, for which she was nominated for four Emmy Awards. Those weren’t Rigg’s only Emmy nominations, though; she collected nine total during her career, along with one best-supporting-actress win for her role as Mrs. Danvers in a 1997 miniseries production of Rebecca. In 1990, Rigg won a best-actress BAFTA TV award for her role in Mother Love. She also won a BAFTA special award in 2000 for The Avengers, an honor shared with the Snoppy Face Mask Top I’m Smiling Under The Mask Hugging You In My Shirt and I will buy this series’ other stars, Honor Blackman, Joanna Lumley, and Linda Thorson. For her last appearance on Broadway, playing the mother of Henry Higgins in the 2018 Lincoln Center production of My Fair Lady (“the definition of luxury casting,” in the words of the New York Times), Rigg earned a Tony nomination for best featured actress in a musical. Earlier in career, she won the 1994 best-actress Tony for her title role in Medea and was also nominated for two other Broadway appearances, in The Misanthrope (1975) and Abelard and Heloise, her Broadway debut (1971).
Face masks have dramatically evolved throughout the Snoppy Face Mask Top I’m Smiling Under The Mask Hugging You In My Shirt and I will buy this pandemic. They began as a necessary, utilitarian item. But as they became part of our everyday lives, fashion brands also began reimagining how a face covering can look. Though they’re still essential and utilitarian at their core (at the most essential level, a mask should always safely and comfortably cover one’s mouth and nose), they’ve now become a form of accessory. You can now find a mask in virtually any sort of style, from tie-dyed to covered in sequins. With that in mind, it was only a matter of time before this fashion sentiment evolved to other forms of PPE, too. Case and point: Louis Vuitton announced this week that it will be releasing its own high-fashion face shields.
