Laudomia Pucci: How Styling Keeps Brands Fresh Across Generations

LOS ANGELES — “Don’t crush your chiffon, honey,” Neiman Marcus senior vice president and global fashion director Ken Downing advised a model.
The 10 women stood in a makeshift backstage, styled by Downing for an afternoon in-store event at the retailer’s Beverly Hills store on Wilshire Boulevard. They wore pieces from an exclusive Emilio Pucci capsule collection for Neiman Marcus.
Laudomia Pucci, the brand’s image director in town for the event, went to the archives to deliver a fresh spin on seasoned prints originating from the late Sixties and early Seventies for the resort capsule.
“I think the idea here was to have the ‘perfect wardrobe’ for resort escape,” she said. “And, of course, in this store there is not much resort-beachwear. So it’s morning-to-evening in the season. It’s what we call ‘Pucci perfect’ because you just easily put it in a suitcase. It’s light and you have everything. It goes from the beach, swim, caftan, eveningwear. So you can dress it up and dress it down as you wish and it’s styled as you wish.”
It’s all in the styling that allows for brands to remain relevant across generations, Pucci said, offering that the business her father started has remained appealing to younger

Ivanka Trump Executive Strikes Back, Claiming Expansion Continues Across Categories and Distribution

WILL THE OTHER SHOE DROP?: Is Neiman Marcus cutting ties with the Ivanka Trump company to stop selling its jewelry?
That possibility was hashed out and (asserted by some) web sites Friday after noting that Ivanka Trump fine jewelry was no longer available on Neiman Marcus’ web site. But the retailer presented a different picture.
A Neiman Marcus spokeswoman said Friday, “Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business, which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor). Based on productivity, we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our web site, or both.”
Executives at Neiman Marcus did not respond to requests for comment about whether that arrangement will continue for fall. Unlike the Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories that are sold in department stores and specialty stores and are geared for working women, the label’s fine jewelry is more expensive and is not sold in mass stores.
Meanwhile, executives at Ivanka Trump have broken their silence about the state of the business, after a few weeks of declining to comment. Rosemary K. Young, senior director of marketing at Ivanka Trump, said in a statement Friday, “The Ivanka Trump brand continues to expand across

People Across The U.S. Are Raising Money For Girls To See ‘Hidden Figures’

“Hidden Figures,” the hit film that tells the story of three black women who helped NASA send a man into orbit, has been praised for putting women of color in the spotlight. 

That’s why people across the country ― teens, teachers and community leaders ― are raising money through GoFundMe to ensure young girls can see the movie.

One of those people is Taylor Richardson, a 13-year-old aspiring astronaut from Florida, who wants to send 100 girls to see “Hidden Figures” at a theater in Jacksonville, Florida. She also wants to raise money on GoFundMe for the girls to have snacks and get a copy of the “Hidden Figures” book.

Richardson first saw the movie at a screening at the White House and has since seen it three more times. She said the film was “amazing.”

“I cried, I laughed, I got angry and then got determined to not let others’ impressions of me because of the color of my skin impact how my life will be,” she told The Huffington Post. “These black women did something I never knew about, and it’s not in any history books that I’ve studied thus far.”

As of Friday, Richardson has raised $ 2,540 of her $ 2,600 goal. She found the girls she plans to take to see the film from organizations that have impacted her life like the YMCA, Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, See The Girl and Journey Into Womanhood. She wants them to go home after the movie feeling as inspired as she did.

“This movie instills that us girls can dream big and make it even when odds are against us,” she said. “Most importantly I want girls to know that, like boys, they too can excel in STEM with hard work.”

Several teachers across the country have also started GoFundMe campaigns to help send their students to see the influential film. After reaching his goal of $ 1,000, Peter Modlin will be taking girls in second, third, fourth and fifth grade who attend the Detroit elementary school where he teaches. Modlin told HuffPost he hopes the students learn to dream big after watching the movie. 

“I want the girls to see this movie in hopes that a lightbulb might go off,” he said. “A lightbulb that signifies a belief in the opportunity to do or be anything they want to be, if they work hard to achieve that goal.”

Like Richardson and Modlin, Phyllis Marshall raised money on GoFundMe so local girls could see “Hidden Figures,” and has since taken them to see it.

On Jan. 7, she took 50 girls from Roberts Family Development Center in Sacramento, California, to the theater. She’s worked with the center, which is in a low-income community and provides after-school care, for years. Through GoFundMe she raised more than her $ 1,500 goal, which provided transportation, snacks and tickets to the movie. Marshall said “they loved it.”

Marshall was glad to be able to show the girls that women can succeed in science, technology and mathematics. She was especially thrilled to show them that women of color and their success deserve a place on the big screen.

“I certainly hope as many young girls get to see that movie as possible.” 

Other teachers and community leaders are raising money for kids to see “Hidden Figures, too. Check out their campaigns below.

Weekend Roundup: Connecting Minds Across Cultures

“Forty years of crisscrossing the planet has led me to suspect that the world isn’t growing smaller,” the inveterate traveler and literary journalist Pico Iyer laments. “If anything, the differences, the distances between us, are growing greater than they’ve ever been. In the Age of Information, many of us know less about other perspectives and other cultures than ever before.”

This week, the Berggruen Institute announced the launch of a philosophy and culture center that responds to this rift by connecting minds across borders through an exchange of scholars from East and West that will be hosted at prestigious universities from Cambridge and Harvard to Stanford and Tsinghua in Beijing. In order to promote foundational concepts for the future, the center will co-sponsor an ideas contest with the Aspen Institute as well as establish an annual $ 1 million Nobel-like prize for philosophy.

Behind this unique endeavor is the notion that what is least material most endures. Power wanes, buildings crumble and people die. But ideas, paradigms, worldviews and narratives live on. They shape the world by cultivating the soul, organizing the intellect and animating the will.

In our exponential technology series this week, neuroengineer Miguel Nicolelis tells us that “the brain is not a mechanism” but “an organism” that evolves. He worries that “if we keep relying so much on computers, we will begin to resemble our machines.” In our “Following Francis” series, Sébastien Maillard recounts from Rome how the pope went to a local shop himself to buy — and pay for — new lenses for his old glasses.

The saga of refugees trying to reach safe harbor in Europe continues. Rami, a 17-year-old refugee from Damascus, recounts his “escape to Germany” and the hurdles he faced along the way in Macedonia and Serbia. Mary D’Ambrosio humanizes the refugee influx with profiles of four individuals. Jonathan Portes says immigration can be good for economic growth in Europe if people are meaningfully integrated. From Munich, Sebastian Christ scores the new German policy this week of border controls as “voodoo politics” aimed at shoring up right-wing constituencies. Writing from Berlin, Alex Gorlach — a child of Turkish immigrants to Germany half a century ago — hopes the mistakes of integrating that Muslim population will not be repeated. Writing from Paris, Rokhaya Diallo calls on French leaders to live up to their rhetoric of universal human rights. Daniel Wordsworth, president and CEO of the American Refugee Committee, reminds us there are still 7.6 million refugees within Syria. In an interview, Oxford’s Alexander Betts spells out what we can learn from previous refugee crises in history.

World Reporter Nick Robins-Early reminds us of the brutal violence in Syria that is causing so many to flee their homeland, debunks the 5 major myths of Europe’s refugee and migrant crisis and describes a unique startup by three Columbia University graduates that connects Arabic learners with Syrian refugees.

In a series of photo essays, we look at the images Christopher Furlong has taken of what is left behind as refugees move on with their journey; World Reporter Charlotte Alfred presents unsettling images of the Hungarian border emptied of refugees and, in another report, we show satellite views of the impact of Hungary’s border crackdown. Christoph Asche of HuffPost Germany reports on the mounting crisis on the Serbia-Croatia border where refugees have now moved. Margarita Mavromichalis shows the “human face of refugees” on the streets of Athens.

Willa Frej stakes out the positions of the U.S. presidential candidates on the refugee crisis. Writing from Moscow, Georgy Bovt asks whether Vladimir Putin is seeking to exchange Syria for the Donbass region of Ukraine as his new international focus.

In an interview, former Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou worries that the large inflow of refugees combined with austerity policies will bolster the political fortunes of xenophobic parties like the Golden Dawn in this weekend’s election. European parliamentarian Gianni Pittella expresses the same worries. In another interview, To Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis says he hopes to be “the third pole” that can balance Greek politics. Writing from Istanbul, Behlul Ozkan sees a similar peril in Turkey as President Erdogan plays the Kurdish card to win nationalist votes in the upcoming election.

Writing from Tehran, Reyhaneh Tabatabaie describes the hopeful mood of the middle class in anticipation of the removal of economic sanctions. Seyed Hossein Mousavian, a former top Iranian official, calls on Republicans in the U.S. Congress to finally abandon militarism for diplomacy. Faysal Itani sees worrying signs of Iranian influence in Syria.

Sonia Maria Dias examines the vulnerable lives of women waste pickers in the developing world. Environmental scientist Johan Rockstrom describes how “Arctic tipping points” as a result of climate change will have ripple effects around the world. Bianca Jagger tells President Obama that he can’t both preserve the Arctic while allowing Shell to drill for oil there. Lydia O’Connor reports on a key summit of Chinese and U.S. mayors, governors and provincial leaders who met in Los Angeles to “tackle climate change from the bottom up.”

WorldPost China Correspondent Matt Sheehan reports on what 300,000 Chinese students studying in the U.S. are reading — the digital “College Daily” that combines hard news and lifestyle advice.

In this week’s “Forgotten Fact” we examine why the recent coup in Burkina Faso is a disaster for Africa.

Fusion this week look at the 10 cities in the U.S. where it’s especially difficult to scrape by on minimum wage. Finally, in our Singularity series, we look at the open source upside of “biohackers” and DIY amateur sciences.

ORG MONDAY. – It was, if I remember rightly, five o’clock when we were all signalled to be present at the Ferry Depot of the railroad. An emigrant ship had arrived at New York on the Saturday night, another on the Sunday morning, our own on Sunday afternoon, a fourth early on Monday; and as there is no emigrant train on Sunday a great part of the passengers from these four ships was concentrated on the train by which I was to travel. There was a babel of bewildered men, women, and children. The wretched little booking-office, and the baggage-room, which was not much larger, were crowded thick with emigrants, and were heavy and rank with the atmosphere of dripping clothes. Open carts full of bedding stood by the half-hour in the rain. The officials loaded each other with recriminations. A bearded, mildewed little man, whom I take to have been an emigrant agent, was all over the place, his mouth full of brimstone, blustering and interfering. It was plain that the whole system, if system there was, had utterly broken down under the strain of so many passengers.

The Best of Enemies, an Oscar-worthy documentary on a handful of screens across America.

By Nicholas F. Benton

The Best of Enemies, an Oscar-worthy documentary on a handful of screens across America now but guaranteed to be a first-rate resource when it hits the Internet for many a moon to come, chronicles the 10 extraordinary, unscripted, live head-to-head TV throw-downs in the Summer of 1968 pitting two of the nation’s premiere intellectuals, William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal, against each other.

Aimed at spicing up ABC’s coverage of the Republican and Democratic national conventions that summer, the debates were a nationwide sensation because of how the sparks flew between these two men whose faces came within inches of each other and who genuinely hated each other. Not like the canned, insufferably boring exchanges between nominal adversaries swimming in the same big punchbowl of national politics and the major media these days, those exchanges in 1968 were raw, savage and produced, unexpected results, to say the least.

But as commendable as the Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon excellent and timely documentary is, the seminal importance of the Buckley-Vidal encounters (they were more encounters than debates) was missed in their presentation and in almost every review of the film to date.

The encounters represented an historical singularity, a single inflection point that tipped the national consciousness during that hot and intemperate August between the GOP conclave in Miami at the beginning of the month and the anti-war riots and police riot-filled Democratic one in Chicago at the end of the month.

First of all, they were not composed of equals, Buckley on the right and Vidal on the left. Buckley had behind him the full power of the nation’s entire military and industrial establishment, the scions prosecuting the Vietnam War who, as instinctively if not actually most Americans sensed were responsible for the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy just months earlier, and for that matter, before that, of John F. Kennedy and Malcolm X.

Vidal was a fitting adversary, but Buckley agreed to him because he thought he could eat him alive by his usual sophistic debating tactics that made watching his “Firing Line” TV show like watching fish being shot in a barrel.

Vidal was vulnerable in Buckley’s eyes because he was a semi-closeted gay man, intellectually talented but, so Buckley thought, no match for the kind of erudite stabs and cuts that Buckley’s superior mental and verbal rapier skills would bring into play.

Vidal, in my view one of the most under-appreciated figures in U.S. history, presented himself on the set with the eyes and body language of a lonely but brave and happy warrior, with really no one willing to back him up, a Gary Cooper in High Noon-ish type of figure.

This was no debate of equals, this was David versus Goliath if ever there was one.
Appreciating this makes what then happened so much more delightful and important, because Gore Vidal almost literally “tore Bill Buckley a new one.”

Vidal was relentless in taking the fight to his enemy, catching Buckley in contradictions by having researched and quoting from his works, and with highly-charged verbal assaults. Buckley was on the defensive but fought back with his legendary skills of repartee.

But then it got to the ninth encounter, on the eve of the final day of the Democratic convention in Chicago, on Aug. 28, as outside police were smashing anti-war demonstrator heads with billy clubs.

Vidal scored his coup de grace by calling Buckley a “crypto-Nazi.” The close-up of Buckley’s contorted, enraged face at that moment, as he leaned toward Vidal, was like a nasty close-up of the Alien in one of those movies. He snarled, “Now you listen, you queer, stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I’ll sock you in your goddamn face and you’ll stay plastered.”

That was it. Vidal sank back in his chair with a slight smile. He’d won. Such filthy language was never spoken on TV in that era. Buckley was exposed and crushed.

Millions of Americans attracted to the high-brow nature of this fight subsequently felt permitted to come out against the Vietnam War, generating new waves of mainstream activism that eventually sealed its fate.

Photographer Captures Bewitching Images Of Mongolian Child Jockeys Racing Across The Steppes

Purevsurengiin Togtokhsuren is just 13 years old, but he’s already a seasoned jockey. This year marked his fifth time competing in the horse races of Naadam, Mongolia’s annual summer festival. The festival celebrates the three “manly arts” of Mongolian society — horse racing, wrestling and archery. 

Johannes Eisele photographed Purevsurengiin on July 8-11 during the Naadam races in Khui Doloon Khudag, near Ulaanbaatar.

Purevsurengiin’s parents sent him to work as a jockey after a severe winter in 2010, the AFP reports. Mongolian child jockeys usually earn about $ 250 a month for their families, while their coaches pay for their food and school.

Mongolian races are far longer than Western ones, and Naadam courses can be anything from 15 to 30 kilometers long (nine to 18 miles) depending on the age of the horse. Despite a strong performance in 2014, Purevsurengiin came in 30th place in this year’s race.

UNICEF has raised concerns about the safety of child jockeys. Two children were killed and 24 more were injured in the 2013 Nadaam races. “The use of children as jockeys for the purpose of making profit or entertainment is a violation of children’s right to protection from exploitation and harmful labour and places them in great danger,” it said in a statement.

Globalization, Communication and the Workplace: Talking Across the World

Globalization, Communication and the Workplace: Talking Across the World


The global developments in Information Technology Enabled Services have transformed customer service encounters which were until recently face-to-face. The major business areas of healthcare, insurance, banking and media are increasingly moving their customer processes to call centres, web based interaction, and email. ITES is set for explosive growth over the next decade, alongside being increasingly outsourced to non-English speaking destinations. The need for good English language communication skills is becoming ever more acute.This book looks closely at interactive communication in customer-facing services, featuring the voices of both academics and those in industry. It aims to integrate the work of applied linguists, teachers, trainers and businesses. After an initial discussion on the value of research to applied training, the major issues of ITES communications are addressed with either an academic analysis being followed by a training example derived from it, or with an analysis of a workplace problem followed by a research-based solution proposal. This volume should appeal to a wide readership in academic, business training and HR departments.

The Rain Parade: A Photographic Journey Across Ghana

The Rain Parade: A Photographic Journey Across Ghana


The Rain Parade tells the story of photographer, Julia Blaukopf when, in 2006, she traveled to Ghana to work with Women in Progress, an organization that empowers women through a sustainable business of clothing production called Global Mamas. Woven into The Rain Parade are Blaukopfs experiences of the everyday, of mothers, artisans, leaders, workers, and women who use imagination to achieve prosperity for their families and their country. During this time she traveled throughout the country visiting the bead-making region, mountain villages, a remote fishing village, the big city of Accra, and the homes of Ghanaian artisans and professionals. Blaukopf scribed her experiences into a journal, detailing the moments of each day. These written impressions interact with Blaukopfs photographs to create her story – a time that becomes a dream. Julia Blaukopf is a Philadelphia-based photographer and social documentarian. She has worked as a creative partner with organizations and businesses in Germany, Copenhagen, Kenya, Ghana, Lithuania and throughout the US. In 2005, Julia worked with a community-run reforestation project in Kenya. A year later she traveled back to Africa to photograph for the Ghanaian organization Women in Progress. Julia has also traveled extensively in the United States, focusing her lens on women artisans and their work in the creative sector. Julia worked with Women in Progress as a photographer and a liaison to help promote the womens craft in the U.S. Her goal is to create artistic work that promotes social and political efforts, to create images that embody the mission of Women in Progress, and to help raise awareness for the women artisans crafting businesses through batiking, sewing, and bead making. *Author: Blaukopf, Julia/ Blaukopf, Julia *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 128 *Publication Date: 2011/06/10 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 8.50 x 0.33 inches

ORG “You never can guess it – you never can guess the news, Teddy,” cried Phil Forrest, rushing into the gymnasium, his face flushed with excitement. Teddy Tucker, clad in a pair of linen working trunks and a ragged, sleeveless shirt, both garments much the worse for their winter’s wear, was lazily swinging a pair of Indian clubs. “What is it, some kind of riddle, Phil?” he questioned, bringing the clubs down to his sides. “Do be serious for a minute, won’t you?” “Me, serious? Why, I never cracked a smile. Isn’t anything to smile at. Besides, do you know, since I’ve been in the circus business, every time I want to laugh I check myself so suddenly that it hurts?

A State-By-State Look At Marriage Numbers Across America

If you want to live in a state where you’ll be surrounded by lots of married folks, then head to Utah where 57 percent of the population is hitched. (No surprise there!)

Find The Best — a website that collects and presents data sets on a variety of topics — used marriage data from the Census’s American Community Survey to calculate the percentage of married people in states across the U.S.

The percentages were calculated by taking the number of people over the age of 15 (“Seems young, but this is how the Census collects the information,” a Find The Best product associate told HuffPost) who are currently married in a given state and dividing it by the total population of people 15 and older in that state. The numbers were pulled from the ACS’s 2007 to 2012 surveys.

To find out how your home state stacks up, hover over the area on the map.

Bill Cosby Carries Jimmy Fallon On A Tightrope Walk Across ‘Tonight Show’ Set

Who knew Bill Cosby was this strong?

With Jimmy Fallon taking a look at extreme sports last night, he asked The Cos to walk a tightrope across the studio. The “rope” was nothing more than a piece of tape on the floor — but as you’ll see in the video, Fallon wasn’t about to make it that easy on Cosby.

As the 76-year-old comic legend teetered down the “rope,” Fallon hopped up on his back and covered Cosby’s eyes for the piggyback ride of his life. Somehow, he wasn’t injured.

Cosby came out okay too.

The Land Across

The Land Across


?Wolfe is our Melville.? ? Ursula K. Le Guin Grafton, an American writer of travel guides, needs a new place to explore, and he chooses a small and obscure Eastern European country. No travel books exist about the land beyond the mountains, so he sees it as his golden opportunity. But the moment Grafton crosses the border he is in trouble, much more than he could have anticipated or imagined. His passport is confiscated, and then he is detained for not having it. He is released into the custody of a local family, seduced by the wife, and again detained. In prison he is recruited by the enigmatic and powerful Legion of the Light as a broadcaster of propaganda. It becomes evident to him that there are supernatural agencies at work here, but they are not in some ways as threatening as the brute forces of bureaucracy and corruption that Grafton encounters in this strange land. Is our hero in fact a spy for the mysterious JAKA? Or is he an innocent citizen caught in a Kafkaesque trap? Gene Wolfe keeps us guessing until the very end, and after.
