Hello Sophia fans! For those interested in more information about the Talbots line Sophia models for Oprah Winfrey‘s magazine, I’m sharing an article by WWD about the collection. As they write in the introduction, “To date, the O-Talbots tie-up has raised more than $3 million in monetary contributions, collected 60,000 articles of clothing and subsequently helped to impact 60,000 women’s lives.” I love that Sophia support and participate in such great campaigns!

WWD | SUCCESS STORIES: Upping the stakes for its third collaboration with O, The Oprah Magazine to benefit Dress for Success, this time around Talbots will match cash donations up to $250,000.

This year’s launch date for O, The Oprah Magazine Collection for Talbots is Feb. 20 at retail and online. To help get the word out, the activist-leaning Connie Britton, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sophia Bush, Busy Philipps and Tanika Ray are on board as influencers. Talbots senior vice president of marketing Deb Cavanagh said, “We wanted to identify high-profile women of influence who truly cared about our cause and our mission.”

Supporters and shoppers have a few ways to get involved. Cash donations can be made in stores Feb. 20 through April 1. Talbots is also encouraging women to clean out their closets and will accept “nearly new” clothing and accessories in its 435 locations March 1 to 4. Consumers can also pitch in by purchasing items from the O, The Oprah Magazine Collection for Talbots collection. Thirty percent of net proceeds from those purchases will benefit Dress for Success, which helps women return to the workforce.

To date, the O-Talbots tie-up has raised more than $3 million in monetary contributions, collected 60,000 articles of clothing and subsequently helped to impact 60,000 women’s lives.

Cavanagh said, “Women have come together in an unprecedented way to stand beside each other and to stand for not just empowerment but ultimately supporting success. So this campaign really feels so well-timed to fit into the cultural focus and Oprah’s focus.”

The March issue of O magazine has two impact covers — one featuring Britton and the other with Brown and Bush. There is also a three-page spread touting the O, The Oprah Magazine Collection for Talbots. O’s creative director Adam Glassman said, “We wanted people who believed in Dress for Success and believed in our group mission between Talbots and Oprah even if they had their own affiliation with their own cause. We did this before the Time’s Up movement. Everything just felt like perfect timing actually.…The main thing is it’s feel-good product that brings joy into people’s life. By doing so, they’re helping other women.”

He approached the color palette and the concept with a buy-now-wear-now mentality that also transitions into spring and summer. Instead of more time-sensitive florals, there are red, white and blue styles including stripes, a touch of gingham, and a ladybug motif that “really reads like a polka dot,” Glassman said. “One day I was at Oprah’s house, sitting in one of her gardens and I started seeing all these ladybugs. I thought, ‘That’s a cute idea. They kind of look like polka dots.’ They are a symbol of hope and life and love — prosperity — and some cultures actually believe they’re about taking actions on your dreams. I thought how perfect is that for our connection for Dress for Success.”

For the annual style event and shopping party on March 3, Glassman and Gayle King will visit Talbots’ Madison Avenue store. The pair have a satellite media tour planned and are expected to appear on Rachael Ray’s show Feb. 13 to coincide with the March issue landing on newsstands. Revenue for the magazine brand is up 5.4 percent from January through the April issues and its audience has increased 5 percent in the past year, gaining nearly a half million readers for the magazine, according to a Hearst spokeswoman.

Talbots is also in growth mode. With its weeks-old stores in Palm Beach Gardens and Seal Beach up-and-running, the company is gearing up for June openings for stores in Preston Oaks, Tex., and Kenwood, Ohio. In the meantime, it’s true blue spirit can be found in the new collection. Cavanagh said, “The color palette, a deep navy, white and red, feels very appropriate this month going into the Olympics. And it’s just a really modern palette that you can wear with everything.”

And although Winfrey is “a fabulous woman who makes connections, speaks beautifully and understands the world, and really could have everyone’s arms come together from both sides, she’s not looking to be a politician,” Glassman said.

Exciting news, fellow Sophia fans! Our girl has landed a development deal with 20th Century Fox TV, which both lands her a role in an upcoming comedy or drama pilot for the studio, as well as projects she’ll develop and executive produce. The Hollywood Reporter were the ones to break the story, and you can read their article below – we can’t wait to see what this will have in store for Sophia.

The Hollywood Reporter | The former ‘Chicago P.D.’ actress will star in an upcoming pilot produced by the studio. Five months after walking away from her starring role on NBC’s Chicago P.D., Sophia Bush is plotting her TV return.

The actress and activist has inked a talent holding and development deal with 20th Century Fox Television, the studio announced Thursday. Sources say Bush fielded multiple offers, including from Chicago P.D. producers Universal Television, but ultimately signed with 20th.

Under the pact, Bush will star in an upcoming comedy or drama pilot for the studio as well as develop and executive produce additional projects for the company.

New showrunner Rick Eid also discusses Halstead’s struggles in the premiere episode and Voight’s “toughest opponent yet”.[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday’s season five premiere of Chicago P.D., “Reform.”]

Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) is gone but definitely not forgotten. Chicago P.D. opened its season five premiere with a tribute to the now-former member of the Intelligence Unit, a series of clips showing everything from her recounting when Voight (Jason Beghe) and his late wife took her in off the streets as a troubled teen to her rollercoaster relationship with partner and beau Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) to, finally, her accepting a job with the FBI in New York from the season four finale, just as Halstead was about to propose.

The first new season five footage also hit hard on her exit, first with Halstead going back to her now-empty apartment and finding a picture of the two of them together, and then with Voight telling a stranger about how difficult it was to say goodbye to the woman he thought of as a daughter.

Even as Halstead dealt with the blowout from accidentally shooting a little girl during a bust, he asked Voight if he had heard from Lindsay. The answer? A definitive no. “Look, it was time for her to move on,” Voight told him. “You need to make peace with it.”

And with that, the new Chicago P.D. — after all the season premiere is titled “Reform” — got down to business. The hour set up new tensions between Voight and his boss (Esai Morales) as well as the new independent auditor, his old partner Denny Woods (Mykelti Williamson). The premiere also set the stage for Antonio’s (Jon Seda) full-time return to Intelligence (following the cancellation of Chicago Justice) and also began to lay the groundwork for Halstead’s new partnership with Det. Upton (Tracy Spiridakos), even as he struggled to cope with not only Lindsay’s absence but the fact that he accidentally shot and killed a little girl.

There was also some movement on the romantic front, when Burgess (Marina Squerciati) informed ex-fiance Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) that she was seeming someone new despite their kiss midway through season four.

New Chicago P.D. showrunner Rick Eid answered all of THR’s burning questions about Burgess and Ruzek’s “intense romantic connection,” Voight’s “toughest opponent yet,” and to get the behind-the-scenes story on Lindsay’s “meaningful” farewell.

The season five premiere opens with flashbacks of Lindsay’s time on P.D. You could have easily gone the Law & Order route and not made mention of her exit, so why did you think it was best to acknowledge her absence and in this way? Why was this the right way to start the episode?

We knew the unit would feel Lindsay’s absence in a meaningful way. Voight saw her as a surrogate daughter, Halstead wanted to propose to her last season, and she’s been an integral part of Intelligence from the start. So it felt right to acknowledge this new reality in the premiere.

We also see Voight getting emotional when talking with someone about Lindsay leaving Chicago. Can we assume this is some kind of therapy? Will he be going back? What makes him open up in such a way about her leaving?

Voight is a complicated character who has a hard time opening up to friends and colleagues. He’s more likely to open up to a perfect stranger. The woman he meets with in the premiere is more of a surrogate therapist than a professional psychologist. He may visit with this woman again. You’ll have to watch.
