DWTS’ John Schneider Gets Emotional Over His Strained Relationship with His Children

John Schneider is hoping he can mend his strained relationship with his three children.

In an exclusive clip of Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, the Dukes of Hazzard alum, who played Bo Duke on the comedy series from 1979-85, gets emotional while explaining how country music and DWTS has affected his life.

“What country music means to me is it’s three chords and the truth and it shines a light on things that happen in everyday life that are wonderful, not so wonderful, and that are heart-wrenching,” Schneider, 58, says.

“I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. The worst part about it is that it’s wedged itself in between my three adult children and myself. Nothing I can do except hope one day one of my kids will call me up or show up. I look in the crowd every Monday thinking maybe tonight, maybe tonight.”

“If it weren’t for this music and now Dancing with the Stars, I don’t think I can survive it,” he admits. “It gives me great joy at a time where I desperately needed it.”

Earlier on in the season, Schneider briefly spoke towards his relationship with his children. whom he is not on speaking terms with.

“I’m hoping that I will do my family proud, I’ll do my love over there proud,” said Schneider told host Erin Andrews, referencing his girlfriend, Alicia, and added, “and maybe my children will speak to me again.”

After 21 years of marriage, Schneider’s estranged wife Elvira “Elly” Schneider filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on Nov. 14, 2014. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.

In September 2016, Schneider — he shares adult children Leah, Chasen, and Karis with Elvira — was ordered to pay his ex $ 18,911 every month, TMZ reported.

But in June, Schneider was sentenced to three days behind bars in the Los Angeles County Jail in June for failure to pay more than $ 150,000 in owed alimony payments to Elvira. The actor was released on the same day as his initial booking because of California’s overcrowded prison system, but his legal woes were not done with that.

Schneider was also ordered to serve an additional 120 hours behind bars for contempt, but that sentence was suspended by the court on the condition that he fulfills a four-part list of conditions, including filing back taxes to help clear title to their property in Apple Valley so that it could be transferred to her, paying his ex half of his owed earnings from Maven Entertainment, and offering certain financial disclosures before the end of the year.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Eidos Names Handis Creative Director

Simon Spurr may have moved on as the designer of Eidos, but one of his colleagues is stepping into the role.
Michael Handis has been named creative director of the brand, the younger-skewed collection from Isaia. He succeeds Spurr who left to join Seven For All Mankind as global creative director in January. 
Handis, a designer, stylist and archivist, will oversee the collection and its image.
Handis worked alongside Spurr at Kent & Curwen, Tommy Hilfiger, and Simon Spurr Collections. He has also worked with David Lipman, Karl Templer, and Peter Lindbergh. 
Gianluca Isaia, chief executive officer of Isaia and Eidos, said, “We are confident that the brand’s path and momentum will continue to build based upon the success that we have seen over the past year. Eidos offers an easibility and modern perspective that is on the pulse of how men are wearing tailored clothing at the moment — mixing an element of streetwear casual with tailoring.”
Handis pointed to Eidos’ aesthetic as among its strengths. “Brand narratives with depth and passion are coveted now more than ever. It is the moment to tell this brand’s unique story and share its pedigree of sartorial excellence. I look forward to connecting the Neapolitan tradition and lineage of the Isaia family with the modern, international spirit of Eidos.”

JW Anderson Taps Julie Greve to Shoot Spring Campaign

A FRESH FACE: Jonathan Anderson has always seen his role both at JW Anderson and Loewe as a “cultural agitator” as much as designer.
A longtime champion of photography and pushing the boundaries of image-making, he launched the “Your Picture/Our Future” project last year, in a bid to shine the spotlight on the new generation of photographers.
Now he has tapped Julie Greve, one of the winners of the competition, for his latest spring 2019 campaign, which will be released this week.
The campaign, dubbed “Jagged Whispers Ashore” includes a series of black-and-white images that have a nostalgic, raw feel to them, as well as a film shot by Greve. She worked alongside Anderson, stylist Benjamin Bruno and the creative agency M/M Paris to conceptualize the images and film.
Greve, who is U.K.-based, was one of three winners of Anderson’s “Your Picture/Our Future” photography competition. She also worked on the brand’s fall 2018 campaign alongside the other two winners.
As part of the initiative, which is supported by Prince Charles’ charity The Princes Trust, Anderson was flooded with more than 1,800 submissions from young, 18- to 30-year-old imagemakers. He selected three winners and curated an exhibition in Covent Garden last May, to showcase some of

Ulla Johnson RTW Fall 2019

Ulla Johnson’s fall collection combined bold patterns, rich textures and flattering silhouettes in a lineup that exuded a romantic, adventurous and poetic sensibility. But its many diverse ideas were unified by an elegant, sophisticated attitude.
Nomadic and subtly bohemian references injected a charming feel into the clothes, which seemed designed for a chic globetrotter exploring the world with style. 
Shearling coats with tick stitching that created check patterns, as well as striped vests and overcoats with a rustic feel were matched with safari-like separates in graphic motifs, maxi leather skirts embellished with macramé inserts, as well as corduroy separates with tops that had draped, maxi shoulders. Flowers blossomed on both a sumptuous, maxi ruffled dress worked in a shining devore velvet and on jacquard frocks and separates lightened up by shimmering metallic threads.
The collection’s overall hyper-feminine allure was savvily tempered with more urban and minimal styles, including a workwear-inspired jumpsuit crafted from cream white denim, which was also used for a pair of carrot pants matched with a beautiful Peruvian baby alpaca handmade crochet sweater exuding exquisite sartorial quality.
Armed with impeccable taste and a very distinctive tone, Johnson delivered another solid collection that brought an intriguing multicultural, romantic vibe to

BRIDGET FOLEY’S DIARY: To Paris We Must Go

Taking to the runway for fall isn’t necessary. Taking the collection to Paris to sell absolutely is.
That’s the current mind-set at Monse, as for the second consecutive fall season the brand will forego a formal show. Instead, designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have enlisted Kristian Schuller to shoot their look book, which will feature Amanda Murphy, and the brand will hold showroom appointments in New York and Paris.
While the designers remain undecided about whether to opt off the runway for spring as well, in something of a paradigm shift they will definitely stage a formal show for resort 2020.
At a time when brands increasingly opt to go their own way when it comes to presenting their collections, the Monse designers and chief executive officer Renee Prince Fillip thought long and hard about the traditional schedule vis-à-vis the realities of their business. Their no-show decision for fall took into consideration the complications of staging two shows in a single season, as Kim and Garcia have done most seasons since taking over the creative helm at Oscar de la Renta. An even bigger consideration: the frustrating reality of fall markdowns. They determined that the scale of the fall business doesn’t justify the

Family of Baby Girl, Who Was Stabbed and Put in Heated Oven, Hold Funeral for the 20-Month-Old

Royalty Floyd, the 20-month-old Mississippi toddler who was allegedly stabbed and then placed in a heated oven by her own grandmother, was laid to rest on Saturday in Clarksdale.

The family of the slain baby girl came together to say their final goodbyes dressed in pink, per request of Royalty’s mother Veronica Jones, who said it was her daughter’s “favorite color” on Facebook.

“You are gone from this earth but you will forever be here in my heart. You were really truly one of the most beautiful creations that God had ever made and I would like to thank God for bringing you into my life,” Veronica wrote ahead of Royalty’s service.

At the funeral, Royalty’s grandfather delivered a tearful eulogy about his late granddaughter.

“She was ‘Big Girl.’ But from the day she was born, she was granddaddy’s baby girl. And she knew it,” Royalty’s grandfather James Harris said, WREG-TV reported.

“I miss her,” Harris continued. “But she’ll always be with me. Always.”

Royalty’s father John Floyd, who is still in shock over his daughter’s gruesome death, also managed to say a few words at the funeral.

“I still find it unbelievable to tell you the truth,” John said, WREG-TV reported.

“And to try and make heads or tails of what happened, it’s still something I can’t comprehend right now. It ain’t soaking in for some reason. I’m thinking one day this is all something that isn’t real,” John added.

On Oct. 15, authorities were called to a residence in the small city of Shaw after a family member discovered Royalty’s lifeless body burnt and stabbed inside a heated oven.

Royalty was alive when her grandmother, 48-year-old Carolyn Jones allegedly placed her inside the oven.

A deputy coroner at the Bolivar County Coroner’s office in Mississippi told The Bolivar Commercial that the young child died “from sharp stab wounds and inhaling the heated air in the oven.”

On the night of the little girl’s death, Carolyn was immediately taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree murder, the Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to PEOPLE.

Carolyn is currently being represented by a public defender.  PEOPLE could not immediately reach the public defender.

When contacted by the Associated Press, a public defender declined to comment, saying he’s still learning about the case.

The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department also told PEOPLE, the child “was living at the residence with Jones at the time of the murder.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. Some of the most horrific scenes I’ve seen in law enforcement involve children. Those are some of the— they have an effect on us. We don’t want it to happen, but unfortunately, things like this happen,” Bolivar County Sheriff Kevin Williams said in a press conference on Oct. 16, WREG reported.

When asked for a motive, Williams said, “We are trying to figure that out ourselves. We have no idea at this point.”

Royalty’s mother also created a GoFundMe and raised over $ 6,000 to cover Royalty’s funeral costs.

Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2019

Victoria Beckham has an acute knowledge of what she and, in turn, her customers want to wear.
She has developed a power-dressing formula of her own that revolves around elegant tailoring, cozy knits and feminine yet easy-to-throw-on midi dresses — and she keeps returning to it, as it clearly seems to appeal to her growing customer base of women who subscribe to her brand of modern femininity and are on the lookout for glamorous yet no-fuss clothing.
For pre-fall, she kept her focus sharp and stayed true to brand signatures from elegant skinny trousers, to asymmetric knit dresses and flowing midi’s.
Some highlights included a pair of khaki slim trousers with the brand’s signature slits placed on the sides; a tweed suit that is already on high demand after Beckham wore it to attend her husband’s Kent & Curwen presentation during the London men’s shows; tailored corduroy trousers and colorblock tops. There were also dainty slip tops or camisole dresses galore — Beckham said customers loved the lingerie inspiration the brand debuted on the runway last season, so she listened and is giving them more.

EXCLUSIVE: Kris Van Assche Rebuilding Berluti From the Shoes Up

PARIS — “I’m happy to finally give birth — I feel like it’s been 10 months instead of nine, so I’m way overdue,” said Kris Van Assche, greeting a visitor at the Berluti showroom just days before his debut runway show for a luxury label that is rooted in footwear.
Indeed, it’s been an unusually long gestation period for the former Dior Homme designer, whose arrival at Berluti was confirmed in April 2018. Not that he’s been idle: Van Assche presented his capsule spring collection in October, and has also shown a pre-fall collection in-house.
But having watched Kim Jones at Dior and Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, his fellow designers within the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton empire, make splashy debuts during Paris Fashion Week: Men’s in June, followed by Hedi Slimane’s coed show for Celine in September, the 42-year-old is understandably eager to finally lay out his vision for the new-look Berluti.
That vision starts, unsurprisingly, with the footwear. Known for his mix of sharp tailoring and sophisticated sportswear, the Belgian designer has revamped Berluti’s classic Alessandro oxford shoe, made from a single piece of patinated Venezia leather, with the addition of sharp angles and gleaming silver hardware.

Selfridges Notches More Than 4 Million Pounds in Early Hours of Boxing Day Sale

LONDON — Footfall may have been down on Boxing Day, which marks the start of the winter sales in Britain, but for Selfridges, the pickings were rich.
The store, known for its bright yellow branding, said following a strong pre-Christmas trading period, it took in more than 4 million pounds in the first hours of the Boxing Day sale, which began Tuesday night online and Wednesday morning in-store.
Selfridges said it has already seen a 6 percent uplift on last year, and added that Boxing Day 2018 is on track to remain the retailer’s biggest trading day of the year. Selfridges doesn’t close until 9 p.m. local time, so final numbers are still unavailable.
The company said shoppers began arriving outside the Oxford Street store at 2:30 a.m. on Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, when estate owners and employers in Britain traditionally gave gifts to their employees. The store said it expected to see around 120,000 customers between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
Selfridges.com has seen the highest number of site visits to date, with 1.5 million customers visiting the site since Tuesday night, with “high double-digit growth” online compared with last year, it said.
So far the highest-performing departments have been women’s

Warm RTW Pre-Fall 2019

“In summer, everyone’s tan. Everyone feels thinner even if they’re not…maybe it’s just the tan…but for me, I make happy clothes and clothes that try to make you feel happy and like you’re on vacation while grinding it out in the city,” Warm designer Winnie Beattie mused. The designer used knowledge from her own store, customer requests of buy-now warm-weather pieces, combined with requests from her buyers for transitional pieces that can still sit on the floor come early fall, as well. Envisioning those warm summer nights, Beattie designed a lovely collection to appease both.
There were easy printed voile dresses — floral mumus, geode minis — or washed silk jumpsuits with pussy bows and rompers fit for Beattie’s clambake nights in Amagansett, N.Y., that also stayed true to her unwavering versatility. Throw on one of her washed macro-floral printed silk or striped cotton dresses with a pair of Manolos for a summer wedding or dirty Chucks for running around, either worked wonderfully. Plaid “rainbow” cover-ups — a matching surf poncho and trouser — took the place of summer sweaters (because sweaters in the summer is “like admitting it’s cold, which is a horrible, sad thing,” Beattie quipped) made a stellar addition to the

How the Internet Sparked Copenhagen’s Rise

COPENHAGEN — Inside the centuries-old Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, doyennes of Copenhagen’s fashion scene gathered. Apollo Bar, a trendy restaurant housed within the school, was that evening’s location for a party hosted by Ganni, a homegrown megabrand celebrating its new art film series directed by the Danish “It” girl Emma Leth. Clutching whimsical striped boxes of popcorn, women from various creative fields — dressed in pastel track suits, tinsel sweaters and running sneakers — sauntered through the historic, wood-paneled rooms.
Such is a typical magpie Thursday night here, where a close-knit community of fashion designers, artists, restaurateurs, interior designers and creative types have collectively drawn significant attention on the Internet for their “Scandi 2.0” style: colorful, mismatched fashion, expressive interior design and experimental cuisine that is a far cry from Scandinavia’s reputation for austere, minimalist style.

The Good Wife’s Jess Weixler Announces She’s Expecting a Baby with Husband Hamish Brocklebank

There’s a baby on the way for Jess Weixler and her husband Hamish Brocklebank!

On Monday, the 37-year-old actress announced she’s expecting her first child in a very relatable — and funny — way.

“Just had some pizza ❤🌱(6 months),” Weixler captioned an Instagram post, joking that her baby bump is really just a food baby.

In the shot, The Good Wife star, dressed in all black, can be seen cradling her pregnant belly in a field full of apple trees.

A rep for Weixler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Weixler and Brocklebank, a British businessman, got married in 2015 during a stunning ceremony on the beach.

For the nuptials, Weixler wore an off-white, Grecian-style tulle gown and wore her hair in waves.

Rather than going the traditional route, Brocklebank wore a coral colored suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

Both opted to go barefoot for the sandy festivities.

“A lot of love on that beach,” Weixler captioned a photo from their wedding day.

Michael Andrews Bespoke Acquires Kozinn+Sons Merchant Tailors

Michael Andrews Bespoke has acquired Kozinn+Sons Merchant Tailors.
The New York-based custom tailor will re-brand Kozinn+Sons, which has been around for over a century, and operate it under the Michael Andrews Bespoke label that was founded a decade ago.
This is MAB’s first acquisition in the U.S. and largest to date. The company has tried to expand into custom women’s clothing and men’s made-to-measure.
“Kozinn+Sons is a New York institution,” said Michael Andrews, founder and chief executive officer of Michael Andrews Bespoke. “In addition to the family’s multigenerational experience and century-old pattern archives, we’re particularly looking forward to delving further into the theatrical component of their business for which they have become so well known.”
Kozinn+Sons was previously named Saint Laurie but changed its name in 2017 after years of litigation with Yves Saint Laurent.
“Our heritage dovetails perfectly with Michael Andrews’ innovative approach and reinforces our role as ‘keepers of the flame’ for handmade custom clothing,” said Andy Kozinn, Kozinn+Sons’ third-generation ceo. “My family’s legacy lives on through our shared commitment to quality, craftsmanship and service. I am looking forward to welcoming Kozinn clients to MAB’s world-class operation.”

Alexa Chung Brings Thanksgiving to London

THE BRIT TAKE: Alexa Chung brought a taste of New York to London with a Thanksgiving celebration to kick off the holiday season. “I’m calling it Chungsgiving — I’ve taken Thanksgiving, as if the British haven’t done enough to plunder,” Chung said, while getting ready at the penthouse of the London Edition Hotel, where she hosted the dinner.
“I’ve lived in New York and experienced quite a few Thanksgivings over there. I never had any family living with me, so what the holiday meant to me was bringing your friends together and making a makeshift family of all the expats floating around.” Thursday evening’s makeshift family included Serafina Sama of Isa Arfen, Suki Waterhouse and Poppy Jamie of Pop & Suki, Jack Guinness, Jeanne Damas, Pixie Geldof and Camille Charriere.
“I’ve missed how Thanksgiving in New York used to feel. It’s the one time of the year when it’s not a religious holiday, it’s just the beginning of the holiday season, where you can celebrate it with your mates, get drunk, feel cozy,” added Chung.
Everyone certainly got cozy. The evening kicked off with rounds of American whiskey punch, followed by a turkey dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert. To top it off,

Etro Pre-Fall 2019

“Artsy Craftsy” was the name of Etro’s pre-fall collection. “The collection is inspired by strong women such as art collectors who like to travel and love bold colors, patterns and unique techniques,” said the brand’s women’s wear creative director Veronica Etro, highlighting the artistic spirit she infused into her lineup. This visually impactful flair, conveyed with a flamboyant métissage of paisley motifs, floral graphics, jacquard drawings and bold colorblocking, refreshed the nomadic attitude traditionally associated with the Milanese brand.
While playing with rich fabrics, prints and textures, Etro kept the silhouettes clean and linear. Eye-catching patchwork coats and jackets, including a blazer crafted from a tactile, 3-D material and trimmed with contrasting piping, were matched with cropped, slightly flared denim pants or fluid, silk trousers showing asymmetric prints running down the legs.
The breezy dresses had a vibrant feel, evoking Latin American rhythms, while elegant styles in solid black, including a chic belted evening jacket cut from a technical fabric and a cashmere coat, revealed subtle tone-on-tone decorations for a more discreet take on Etro’s signature maximalist style.

Galeries Lafayette and Ester Manas to Offer One-Size-Fits-All Fashion

A NEW SIZE: Redefining the age-old “one size fits all” notion, a collection of adjustable dresses, tops and trench coats designed by Ester Manas will be sold at Galeries Lafayette this spring.
“It’s a collection that draws on the idea that all women must be dressed,” explained Manas, winner of the department store’s prize at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères, France, this year. Pointing to a sweatshirt with a bright red elastic belt, the designer explained that the collection, called “Fashion for All,” is meant to span a range from European size 34 to size 50, thanks to the help of belts, straps and snaps.

A look by Ester Manas, who will create a capsule for Galeries Lafayette.

“We liked this open vision of fashion,” noted Alix Morabito, fashion director of Galeries Lafayette. The department store was interested in pursuing something “playful and very free” for the season, which worked well with Manas’ approach, she added.
The two showed how a gathered shirt sleeve on a cotton dress could be extended to cover part of the arm; the print was stripes of text: “xs, s, m, l, xl, uni.”

Boxing Champion Victor Ortiz Arrested for Rape and Charged with 3 Felonies

Professional boxer Victor Ortiz, who appeared on Dancing with the Stars as well as films The Expendables 3 and Southpaw, has turned himself in to authorities for allegedly raping a woman in March, the Oxnard Police Department confirmed in a news release.

The 31-year-old athlete surrendered himself at the Ventura County Sheriff Department’s East Valley Station on Tuesday after being charged with three counts of felony sexual assault, including rape.

Officials first began investigating Ortiz after his alleged victim contacted authorities on Match 19 claiming she was sexually assaulted “inside a residence in the city of Oxnard,” by the boxer, the Oxnard Police Department said.

The investigation has been ongoing for the last several months before authorities issued an arrest warrant for Ortiz.

The boxer’s bail has been set to $ 100,000 and he is being held on suspicion of forcible rape as well as forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration.

Ortiz’s previously had a run in with the law in 2015 when he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, namely his foot.

Lieutenant Jason Clawson of the Pasadena Police Department previously told PEOPLE that the boxer was arrested at a Kenny Chesney concert at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The boxer later pled guilty to battery charge as part of a plea deal. He was put on probation.

Ortiz was also arrested in 2016 for a DUI, according to TMZ. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI and was sentenced to 3 years probation and 8 days in county jail.

Ortiz’s latest arrest comes just five days before the boxer is expected to fight in a nationally-televised special against former world title challenger, John Molina Jr.

The fight, which is planned to occur at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Ortiz is currently out on bail so it is not clear of the fight will go ahead.

A representative for Ortiz did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Ortiz’s previous titles include the WBC welterweight in 2011 and the ESPN Prospect of the Year in 2008. He was formerly rated as one of the top three welterweights in the world by ESPN, along with several other sporting and boxing websites.

In his tenure — which includes an overall record of 32-6-3 with 25 knockouts — Ortiz has fought against an impressive list of boxers including Floyd Mayweather, Andre Berto, Lamont Peterson, Luis Collazo, and Marcos Maidana.

Will a Larger Adidas Yeezy Boost Release Hurt the Brand?

Kanye West always wanted this.
Not having royalties and not being able to produce more sneakers were the main reasons he left Nike. And upon signing his deal with Adidas, which started in 2013, he made it clear that he wanted more people to have access to his sneakers. Today he’s making good on that promise with the release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in an all-white colorway that retails for $ 220. Customers will only be able to purchase the sneakers directly through adidas.com and the Yeezy Supply web site. They are reportedly releasing 1 million pairs of shoes.
West’s influence, along with scarcity, is what has bolstered the Yeezy footwear line. But what happens when a Yeezy Boost style becomes even more ubiquitous? Will it have the same trajectory as the Jordan brand, which lost market share and cache due to overproduction. WWD spoke with people in the sneaker industry to see if the release will hurt or help the brand.

Something Navy Crashes Site, Beats Expectations at Nordstrom

Arielle Charnas, the influencer behind the popular fashion blog and social channels Something Navy, had a “wildly successful” launch of her collection exclusively at Nordstrom on Monday, according to a Nordstrom spokeswoman.  The brand was so popular it crashed the site in the first hour, which was quickly remedied.
Many customers complained online that they weren’t able to buy what they put in their shopping bag since the site crashed, and once it was back online Nordstrom had sold out of the items.
The introduction followed the successful launch of the Treasure & Bond x Something Navy capsule collection last fall. That capsule was estimated to have racked up sales of about $ 1 million in less than 24 hours, as reported.
On Monday, Something Navy sales beat expectations, according to the spokeswoman. Among the best sellers were a v-neck slouchy pullover, which was available in five colors for $ 79; the double-breasted topper coat in check pattern for $ 139, and the teddy coat, available in two colors, blue and tan, for $ 149. The tan sold out Monday and the blue is still available in large and XXL.

The blue teddy coat is still available in a few sizes.

Koché RTW Spring 2019

At a time when the United Nations is meeting in New York, discord between nations has rarely appeared so high. Christelle Kocher has other ideas.
Her spring collection was an ode to unity, under the guise of a celebration of women worldwide. That could be a soignée Parisienne, strutting down Avenue Montaigne in a fuchsia blazer, or a young girl in Indonesia going out with friends in a sequined top and matching headscarf, paired with pleated track pants.
“It’s an homage to diversity, a rallying call in which fashion can be a good vector of unification,” Kocher said backstage after the show, held at the French Communist Party headquarters in Paris, a saucer-shaped building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the Sixties.
Kocher has always connected with a more nuanced vision of Paris than most people who live here experience — the result of shuttling between her job as artistic director of Maison Lemarié, part of Chanel’s stable of specialty ateliers, and her own studio in the multiethnic neighborhood of Belleville in the northeast of Paris.
This season, she broadened that vision to places she has visited, and those she dreams of discovering. A black bodysuit was embroidered with silver sequins in geometric motifs inspired

Uniqlo Opens Knitwear Show With Tales of Horizontal Knitting Machines

NEAT KNITS: Don’t take your sweater for granted.
This felt like the underlying message relayed by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. executives speaking before a crowded room of journalists gathered for a Uniqlo exhibit about knitwear in Paris. People squeezed into the entrance of the show, a wide room covered with dangling wheels of colored wool, the hues arranged like a giant, three-dimensional rainbow.
Held at the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, the show runs from Wednesday through Saturday. It’s a sort of ephemeral pop-up experience from the Japanese label, which touts the exhibit as its first, as it joins the growing ranks of brands aiming to pull in new consumers by telling people how their stuff is made.
“The Art and Science of LifeWear” features a knitting machine in action, building a sweater dress before the public. It then takes visitors through a life of a sweater through photos, showing inspection stages and the factory hanger system, finishing with the final residue removal, done by hand. Another room is covered with rows of outfits, some outfitted with knit hats, scarves and gloves.
Closing the exhibit is a pop-up shop, complete with a cash register, featuring collaborations with Andrea Crews—airport themed, with sweaters stamped “Paris”

Seth MacFarlane to Star in Live-Action FOX Series

FOX has ordered 13 episodes of a “new hour-long, live-action comedic drama series” created by and starring Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, network chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman announced today. MacFarlane also wrote the pilot and will executive produce the currently untitled series.

Targeting the 2017-18 TV season, the new MacFarlane series takes place 300 years in the future and follows a “motley crew of space explorers” on a “not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship” named the Orville.

“I’ve wanted to do something like this show ever since I was a kid, and the timing finally feels right,” said MacFarlane in a statement.

Walden and Newman added: “Seth has one of the most original voices – in every sense of the word – and we’ve been waiting for him to bring us a project as special as this one. It’s classic Seth – fresh and funny, incredibly smart, wickedly subversive and undeniably FOX.”

Lisa Rinna Changes Her Hairdo for the First Time in 20 Years Using Drugstore Dye

As Brandi Glanville once told Lisa Rinna in season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: ‘You’ve had the same hairdo for 20 years!” Well, not anymore.

The Melrose Place alum debuted her new darker hairstyle on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday, after the third and final part of the RHOBH reunion special aired on Bravo.


Owen Kolasinski/BFA/REX/Shutterstock; Heidi Gutman

“I mean, I wanted to try something new, and you know, I’ve had the same hairdo,” Rinna, 52, explained to host Andy Cohen about her coiffed strands. “For 20 years I’ve had the same hairdo and I thought, ‘Why not?’ You know?”

The mother of two also added that the hair transformation was a bit of a spontaneous decision that was influenced by the recent Met Gala.

Instagram Photo

“I darkened it a little bit. I went to the drugstore last night, and I got this fanciful – I don’t know what it is. It’ll wash out,” she said. “Because my highlights were all crazy all over the place and I thought, ‘I’ll just darken it a little bit.’ I had a vision. It was sort of, like, for the Met Ball, the ‘Manus Machina’ look for the Met Ball.”

So will this darker color be permanent change? “I like my hairdo though,” she clarified. “I really do.”

Instagram Photo

Rinna’s signature, short hairstyle previously featured streaks of honey blonde highlights. She most memorably sported brunette locks in April 2015 when she ditched her shaggy pixie cut for dark Kardashian-esque extensions in response to Glanville’s insults about her hair.

One of the reasons Rinna likes to rock a bob is because husband of close to 20 years Harry Hamlin prefers a shorter ‘do.

Instagram Photo

“Harry likes it. He always says, ‘Keep it short.’ So I like to keep my husband happy; that is not news,” she said during a Access Hollywood co-hosting gig in April 2015.

Crew, marks the first Nautica store to open in Manhattan in over a decade. The company operates over 200 stores internationally, but only outlet stores in America.
The new store is part of the company’s repositioning strategy that was revealed in February. The plan revolves around the theme of “Reimagine Nautica — Inspired by the Sea, Designed in the City,” and includes a good, better, best pricing approach. The SoHo store will carry the higher-priced, more aspirational product and will include women’s wear as well.
Karen Murray, president of Nautica, said, “It is exciting for our brand and consumers to have a retail location in the city that we have called home for over 30 years.”
The SoHo store will offer a “reimagined nautical environment with references to a modern cityscape,” the company said. This will translate into a sophisticated, boutique-style store with nautical references including natural oak beams intended to be reminiscent of a boat.
The store will also include a “style bar,” which will feature an assortment

Duchess of Cambridge Opens Magic Garden at Hampton Court

DUCHESS ON DUTY: Following a tour of India and Bhutan, Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday festivities and a visit from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, the Duchess of Cambridge is carrying on with a series of royal engagements. She headed to Hampton Court to open Magic Garden, a new children’s play area, on Wednesday.
Designed by Robert Meyers with a moat and shrub maze, the garden is located in King Henry VIII’s former courtyard where, historically, jousting and tournaments took place. The duchess met with the teams involved in the design and construction, as well as children and families in the community. She attended a reception and unveiled a plaque to mark the opening. No stranger to recycling her wardrobe, she donned a blue-gray Michael Kors coat first seen during her royal tour to Australia in 2014 with LK Bennett heels.
As a patron of the Anna Freud Centre, she attended a lunch in a Roksanda Illincic dress and met with families from the center and supporters of the institution that increases awareness of children’s mental health issues. She headed to the National Portrait Gallery wearing a pink peplum Alexander McQueen dress to view two portraits of her by photographer Josh Olins that are on display as a

Christian Siriano Bridal Spring 2017

For his first full-fledged bridal collection, retailing exclusively at Kleinfeld, Christian Siriano looked to France, drawing inspiration from its vintage interiors, Art Nouveau tapestries and the work of Impressionist painters Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. He parlayed his references into a romantic lineup full of classic princess gowns and other, more playful silhouettes — the latter including a cropped-top and skirt set; a sexy, sequined jumpsuit; a ruffled tuxedo and a flirty, feathered minidress. Siriano’s strapless sweetheart gown with a tiered, pleated silk chiffon skirt felt effortlessly feminine, and his pink ombre ballgown — the collection’s showstopping finale look — was bound to fulfill some future bride’s ultimate wedding fantasy.

A Talk with Barbara Hershey About Her Long-standing Career

2016-05-03-1462298198-1491655-BHHeadshot.JPG

Barbara Hershey is a multi-award winning actress who has been gracing us with her presence on the big screen for quite some time. She is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a “Killing in a Small Town” and was nominated for an Academy Award for a “Portrait of a Lady” as well as a BAFTA award for “Black Swan”. In the 1980’s Barbara was at the height of her career. She has played many roles, from “The Stunt Man”, “The Right Stuff” to “Hannah and Her Sisters” with Woody Allen, and “Hoosiers” with Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper, Barbara is the epitome of what it takes to have a lifetime career pursuing your dreams and doing what you love. From her award winning role in “Anne of Green Gables” for PBS for which she received a Gemini Award to co-starring opposite of Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson in “Insidious” Barbara’s gift of acting is beyond amazing.

I had an opportunity to speak with Barbara about her long-standing career and to find out what’s next for her.

ABCs “Once Upon a Time” is an amazing show, so let’s talk about your return to the show this season.

I was in two episodes this season. I was truly excited about it because I was asked to do more than I’d ever been asked to do before on the show. It was really an exciting show to get to do, and a very emotional show. They’re wonderful people and I enjoyed doing it and touching base again.

You play the standout character Ann Rutledge on the A&E series “Damien”, what has your experience been like?

Well one of the things that attracted me to it was the question, ‘what would you do if you found out you were the Antichrist?’ because we are starting with the iconic version of the film, the first one with Gregory Peck and Lee Remick and not dealing with any other sequels or anything since, and the little child at the end of that first film that looks at the camera and smiles, is Damien. This is him all grown up and during that period, the human part of him blanked out who he was. He couldn’t deal with it. He then found himself always drawn to pain so he became a war photographer. He’s now thirty years old. My character Ann Rutledge, has been in the shadows his whole life guiding him and protecting him, unbeknownst to him. He’s not aware of her at all, and at this moment she steps out of the shadows and lets him know who he is. But we approach this like the original film in that we approach it realistically. It’s much more like a psychological thriller with edges of horror rather than out of horror. We deal with a lot of interesting issues about good and evil and what is preordained and what isn’t. I find it very interesting and very surprising. The words Antichrist and Damien bring certain images to mind, but the show doesn’t really go in the obvious direction.

You’ve had a long a successful career, what has been your best and favorite role?

This is a very hard question to answer. I have five or six favorite roles and then as soon as I say that, I feel disappointed that I didn’t say something else. It’s hard. It’s like picking your children and saying which one you like best. They’re all a part of me and it’s a difficult thing to pick.

Let’s talk about “Black Swan” and how amazing the film was and your role in that.

I really loved the film. I don’t think I ever worked on a film where I had less of an idea of how the actual film was going to turn out. I don’t mean in terms of good or bad but in terms of my performance specifically, but the film itself. Darren’s way of directing is getting a lot of different varieties on a scene so you do lots of takes that are different from each other, and then he puts it together. The first time I saw the film, I didn’t know what the effect of my character was going to be. Especially that film because you’re looking at the movie through the eyes of someone who is going insane. It’s a subjected film. The character’s version of that is very warped and accelerates. You’re not just presenting a character, you’re presenting what’s going on and her perception of what’s going on kind of at the same time. It was a fantastic film to do and Darren is a really huge talent and wonderful to work with. It was intense. I came in the last three weeks of filming after they had done all of the ballet and everyone was pretty exhausted.

How did winning an Emmy and Golden Globe Award, change the direction of your career?

I don’t know if it did. I won the Cannes Film Festival twice too. It doesn’t seem to affect anything with me. I haven’t noticed any difference. But on a personal level, it has meaning. Film actors actually act in a vacuum, since they don’t have an audience. When you do get an award, it’s kind of an undeniable circumstance where you have to admit what you did which is gratifying. But I always think acting awards are writing awards anyway.

What’s next for you and do you have any aspirations to work behind the camera?

I don’t know what’s next which is often where I’ve been in my life and that doesn’t bother me but I have to stay in a state of openness. Hopefully “Damien” will get renewed and that will be next, but you never know about things. And behind the camera, I don’t know and I don’t think that’s a good enough answer to step behind the camera. I think you have to know. Sometimes I think it would be good but I don’t know. It’s not a big aspiration. I’ve always been just an actor. That’s my love.

21 Couples Who Decided To Elope And Are Damn Glad They Did

There are those who dream of throwing a big blow-out wedding with tons of guests, a fairytale dress and fancy centerpieces. Others fantasize about eloping in a no-frills ceremony instead with only a few close family and friends present — or perhaps no one at all.

One choice isn’t inherently better than the other; it’s an intensely personal decision that the couple must make together. We recently asked 21 couples why eloping was the right choice for them. Read on to see what they had to say:

The Perfect Response To ‘Are Men Second-Class Citizens?’

You can spend a lifetime trying to find the perfect gif to deploy in response to sheer ignorance about women’s rights.

Today, we can thank Guardian Australia columnist Van Badham for supplying us with one.

The writer appeared on Australian morning show “Sunrise” on Saturday, where hosts were conducting a deep-dive into the ever-pressing topic, “Are men second-class citizens?”

The statement that prompted Badham’s eye roll of the century was “left feminism is essentially selfish.” Former Australian politician Mark Latham made that remark while trying to characterize Badham as only concerned about problems that affect educated, privileged women — even though she covers class inequality at The Guardian. (She also wrote a comprehensive response to Latham’s remarks, which you can read here.)

But her sublime expression is nothing if not versatile when confronting sexist idiocy.

For example:

“Why don’t you want kids?”

“Are you on your period?”

“Women are just voting for Hillary/Bernie because she’s a woman/they want boys to like them.”

“You’d be so much prettier if you smiled more.” 

Try it yourself! In the meantime, the entire segment can be viewed below:

Patti Smith Rocks the Getty Honoring Robert Mapplethorpe

Patti Smith gently rocked the Getty Center Saturday, April 30, performing two acoustic shows in honor of her “life-long friend” Robert Mapplethorpe, whose poignant artworks and photographs are on exhibit there and at LACMA through July 31.

Using poetry, song, reminiscence and readings from her National Book Award-winning Just Kids, Smith took those lucky enough to have acquired tickets to this event on a journey through her and Mapplethorpe’s life together from the time they met in 1969 – penniless, guileless and both strikingly handsome – to Mapplethorpe’s death from AIDS in 1989.

Warning that “memory is like cubism,” she spun their entwined tale and revealed how the duo had a remarkable penchant for letting fate guide them to the right place at the right time and for getting out of their own way in service of their creativity and their work.

Wearing an ear-to-ear smile and her uniform of black combat boots and jacket (at one time she wore only Ann Demeulemeester), Smith began by reading a poem that she wrote for Mapplethorpe’s memorial booklet. As photographs of and by Mapplethorpe were projected on the wall at the back of the stage, Smith described their journey.

Against the backdrop of a photograph of the “kids” in Coney Island on Sept. 1, 1969 — Smith in rolled up white pants and a black bandana around her forehead and Mapplethorpe, dapper in a black hat and a white bandana around his neck – she set off on a trip through their starving young artist days, during which she cooked them lettuce soup – basically just lettuce and bouillon cubes – while they listened to Tim Buckley and Tim Hardin.

“We had a great way to weather all kinds of personal storms,” she explained, adding that though their romance was physical, too, it was essentially “work-based,” its foundation being their “common belief in one another” and the key to their long friendship. Smith revealed that her friend was funny, mischievous and liked to laugh and that he was “smitten” with photography, long before it became a respected art “like painting and sculpture.”

Her readings from the book and her other memories were punctuated with song – she sang some of her most well-known numbers like Dancing Barefoot and Because the Night, her one hit song (written with Springsteen.) She sang the very moving Paths that Cross, which she wrote for Mapplethorpe after his lover, mentor and benefactor, Sam Wagstaff, died of AIDS in 1987. Smith was accompanied on guitar or piano by her long time collaborator Tony Shanahan.

When Rani Singh of the Getty Research Institute introduced Smith at the 4PM show, she enumerated her many creative attributes – poet, author, singer – and even created a new one calling her a “songer,” which she quickly corrected to songwriter but which foreshadowed the singer’s own talent for making up words. I found it especially fascinating that Smith kept referring to Mapplethorpe’s early pen and ink, complicated yet delicate drawings, as “drawlings,” definitely adding an “l” to the word. Was this intentional, a reference to Mapplethorpe’s own “drawl?” Smith used this word to describe how, towards the end of his life, Mapplethorpe had sardonically drawled “where’s the dance song?” when she and her husband, musician Fred “Sonic” Smith visited him in New York and she sang him Wild Leaves, which she had written for him.

“He always wanted me to have a hit,” she fondly remembered.

This Is The Actual Inspiration Behind Those Crazy Outfits At The Met Gala

Monday night’s Met Gala left onlookers speechless with the elaborate gowns and overall commitment to the theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”

This year the annual exhibit, which opens up to the public at the Metropolitan Museum of Art shortly after the eve of the gala, examines the relationship between hand-made and machine made garments over time. The result? An even bigger display of mind-blowing gowns than those usually seen on the red carpet. 

The museum’s website explains that the exhibit, which features over 150 ensembles, will “address the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of mass production.”

There are feathers! There is intricate design! And if you thought the train on Zoe Saldana’s dress was long, well:

 

Enough said.  

Feast your eyes on the gorgeous gowns below, and if you’re in New York, be sure to visit the exhibit, which runs May 5 to August 14.

No, That Huge Celebrity Is Not Moving To Your Town

Perhaps you’ve seen the news on Facebook: Matt Damon is moving to Asheville, North Carolina. Ariana Grande is moving to Mobile, Alabama. Miley Cyrus is moving to Roswell, Georgia.

Alas, small-town dwellers, it is all a hoax. 

Since February, a network of self-titled “fantasy” news sites has been posting articles claiming A-list celebrities are moving to far-flung cities and small towns across the U.S. and other parts of the world. 

A quick Google search reveals that dozens of these such stories come from the network, which includes the websites DailyNews11, Headline Brief, LocalNews33, Lopez Report, Aly NewsKNP7 News, KLPO News, WCPM3 News, WMAC News, KUPR7 News, WLEB21 NewsNewsDaily27, The Clancy ReportO’Reilly Post and McKenzie Post. All but Headline Brief were created in early 2016, and Headline Brief was only registered in April 2015.

Each of these sites — which look nearly identical — declare all or most of their content to be “satire or pure fantasy.” But still, the articles have a tendency to spread across social media, sparking many real local news stories to debunk rumors of some major celebrity moving to the area. 

To read a handful of these stories in succession is to realize you are being duped. Many of the celebrities claim to have tired of “the LA lifestyle” and want to cast the city glamour aside for a life among “real, genuine people” in the articles, which are published with similar, if not identical, wording that praises each town.

“The people there are good, decent people and they care about their community,” Vin Diesel, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner and Justin Timberlake are quoted as saying.

In other versions, celebrities simply happened upon the town and fell in love with it — a tempting fiction. It’s not so unreasonable to think a public figure would also recognize your hometown’s charm, although some on social media share the articles to mock the celebrity’s choice.

Maybe, one day, Angelina Jolie or Justin Timberlake will tire of city life and relocate to Montana. But if that news is published on any of the sites mentioned above, it’s probably not true.
