A shout out to Sam Bromell on his birthday! Here we are in our creative space at Graceland, writing an early draft of the script together.
Before he dyed his hair...
Remarkable to see @karenolivo76’s reinterpretation of Satine! It feels like I’m witnessing the emotional intensity of Callas with the comic timing of Streisand. Previews for @moulinrougebway start this Friday, June 28th.
Special day for this remarkable artist and dear friend. Happy birthday, Ms. NK!
Back in my beloved Mexico City, at the Paseo de la Reforma roundabout, where we filmed this scene from Romeo + Juliet in the middle of the night!!
This time 18 yrs ago, Lady Marmalade was hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, where it stayed for five weeks. And in less than a month, @moulinrougebway starts previews! Get ready to gitchie, gitchie all over again...

Still searching for Elvis...
What is taking place in the Torres Strait because of rising sea levels and rapid erosion is a tragedy. Knowing Thursday Island well through my family, my deceased auntie Dorry and my cousin Billy, I fully support what the Torres Strait Islanders are doing at the United Nations with @clientearth_ and I hope you will, too.

Back to work!
About last night...
Dress up time... thank you, Miuccia!
Elvis lipstick for the Met?... just saying.
The Great Gatsby opened on this day, six years ago, and is now available on @netflixuk. Here’s a peek at a @vincent_fantauzzo painting we turned into a storyboard. 🥂
Looking for Elvis 👀
Thanks to Jack, Angie, Regina, and the whole team at Graceland for their support over the last year and a half of research. Not a bad office, hey? Just gotta close the gate on your way out...
One of the first things @catherinemartindesigns and I do in the design process, after intense research, is we begin to make key look boards. Here’s a very early, never-before-seen board from Moulin Rouge!

I know I haven’t been active on here because I’ve had my head down, researching and exploring and absorbing the world around me. But now, because you’ve always supported us and the work, I want to invite you along on this next creative journey. Stay tuned... 🎪
Cold in NYC... how about some @moulinrougebway in June at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre?💃🏾❤️🎩 #moulinrouge
Thanks to the art department for making this incredibly realistic pic of me getting tickets for @moulinrougebdwy as a Christmas gift from Santa. The show opens this summer… tickets are on sale now 💃🏼 #moulinrouge #moulinrougebroadway
While we’re celebrating the 22 years of Romeo + Juliet, I must give a special shout out to this man, a friend and believer for over 25 years, Robert Newman. #romeoandjuliet

Seeing @BST.bighitofficial last week reminded me of the OG rap groups and girl groups like The Get Down Brothers and The Soul Madonnas from our show @thegetdownnetflix (which by the way is always available to stream)... If you’re a fan of the music check out our @spotify playlist with soundtracks from the entire series, link in bio 📲 #thegetdown
So proud of all that these guys do and the creativity they have pursued since the show. It’s amazing how the fanbase of @thegetdownnetflix just keeps growing... #thegetdown
So proud of my longtime friend and music producing partner in BLAM (Sunscreen, Moulin Rouge, Gatsby, etc.) for his achievements with @greatestshowman and his new position at @capitolrecords. Congrats @antonmonsted. Here we are in snowy Glasgow working on tracks with Craig Armstrong for #MoulinRouge...
My dear friend, with your endless enthusiasm and supportive spirit in all endeavors, both personal and professional. So lucky to call you my friend. Miss you and hope you had a special birthday, @315nelsongeorge...
Last couple of shots today… hope you’ve been digging the playlist this weekend… (link in bio if you didn’t yet check out) #romeoandjuliet

I'm still in a Romeo+Juliet mood from the weekend... having a bit of nostalgia. The playlist of songs that inspired @antonmonsted and me making the soundtrack is in my bio for those interested… 1/4 #flashback #fbf #romeoandjuliet
Romeo+Juliet @secret_cinema last night... It was so special to take my two children Lillian and William to see it for the first time... And what a way to see it! A big thanks to @fabienriggall and his team for an extraordinary night and an incredible atmosphere. Even ran into some familiar faces... #romeoandjuliet
End of summer, contemplating the creative roads ahead...
