Disney's "Frozen" is having a great week. First the film snagged two Oscars on Sunday (March 02) - one for best original song "Let It Go," and the other for best animated feature. But now the film has made headlines again: it has officially earned more than 1 billion dollars worldwide. And that number is set to increase, as the movie is still in theaters, will open in Japan later this month, and will start adding DVD sales to its tally when that is released in the U.S. on March 18. Lupita Nyong'o's best supporting actress win is still being celebrated in her native Kenya. Her victory made the headlines of all the country's newspapers. Nyong'o became the first Kenyan to win an Oscar - she even earned praise from the country's president who called her the "pride of Africa." Finally, models got some shopping done in Paris. Chanel's highly anticipated autumn/winter 2014 ready-to-wear show took amazed spectators on a trip to the supermarket. The French capital's Grand Palais was transformed into the 'Chanel Shopping Center' - stocked with luxury goods that the models picked up on their stroll through the catwalk aisles.
