I’m writing a description for a photograph, and I’d like to place the emphasis on the scarf that the person in the picture is wearing. The description would be something along the lines of “__ the scarf that’s been everywhere from New York to London”. Which word would be more appropriate, starring or featuring?
Featuring is correct:
to feature: to include or show something as a special or important part of something, or to be included as an important part
The exhibition features paintings by Picasso.
The verb “to star” is used of famous performers, not things.
