First, it was meant to be an after-work brainstorm meeting; then it was a quick drink at the local wine bar, then true to form out came the Veuve Cliquot, and it was all downhill from there. As the cocktails flowed we decided to indulge ourselves with the movie Oceans 8 …. gorgeous actresses, designer frocks, diamonds and a silver screen heist caper, what more could we ask for?
An evening with no plans turned into a champagne cocktail or two (or three), an indulgent dessert, then a hilarious cinema trip for Claire and I.
Bring on Oceans 8
The stellar female cast got us buzzing. As you all know, the whole idea behind OneChicMom was to inspire women and influence them to be the best version of themselves. We are not by any means saying to go out and rob your local bank. What this piece is about is female empowerment and owning whatever you do. The ladies in this movie may be planning a heist to rob the most expensive Cartier diamonds in the world. They may be using the Met Gala as there stage, but at least they are doing it dripping in Chanel, Dior, and Versace.
Sandra Bullock who plays the infamous Debbie Ocean is undoubtedly looking stunning at 53. Staying true to the quirky roles she usually plays, this beautiful brunette is still kicking ass in style. Cate Blanchett, Rihanna and Anne Hathaway also star.
Seeing so many female A-listers dominate the cast line up shows a real strength in career progression, success, and ambition and plays a massive homage to the current Hollywood scandal and Times Up campaign.
By no means is this film an Oscar winner. But if it’s a great night out with girlfriends, with plenty of attitude, fashion, and glamour, then Oceans 8 it is.
