The Met Names Nancy Chilton Chief External Relations Officer of the Costume Institute

ONWARD AND UPWARD: For many in the fashion crowd, Nancy Chilton’s name has been synonymous with The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. She has taken on a larger role, having been promoted to chief external relations officer for the Costume Institute.
For four years, Chilton has served as chief communications officer for the department. In her new post, she will continue to head communications for the Costume Institute’s exhibitions, special projects and the Met Gala. (The latter alone would seem like a year-round job, given the hundreds that turn out for the exhibition preview, and the more curated crowd for the black-tie event.)
Chilton will oversee additional institutional priorities, philanthropic programs, working closely on sponsorship relationships and other outreach with development. “Every year you talk about the exhibition for months beforehand, write about it and select images to tell the story. But the best moment is when you walk through the galleries with [curator in charge] Andrew Bolton and you see it actually come to life. And the day after the [Met] Gala walking through the galleries and actually seeing the public engaged with it and overhearing comments and reactions — those are always the best moments,” Chilton said.

Harper’s Bazaar Australia Editor in Chief Kellie Hush Quits to Launch Fashion Venture

SYDNEY – Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief Kellie Hush said Saturday she will step down from her position after six years to launch “a unique fashion brand.”
Hush will leave the magazine on Aug. 31, with the September edition her final issue.
Deputy editor and beauty/features editor Eugenie Kelly will take over as acting editor.
A representative for publisher Bauer Media confirmed Hush has resigned but declined to comment further, noting the company will be releasing a statement on Monday.
“I’m not Anna Wintour,” said Hush, “but I think people start speculating about [editors] moving on and I made the decision, it was a personal decision, I’m doing something really exciting which I want to do.”
She added of her abrupt exit, which surprised the fashion industry, “When I spoke to my publisher Fiorella Di Santo [after resigning on Friday], I was very clear I wanted to control the message. The business is in great shape, we have just smashed our September budget for advertising. At this stage our sales are up 13 percent on budget, which in this kind of market is smashing it. I wanted to leave on my own terms.”

Balmain Taps Txampi Diz as Chief Marketing Officer

LOOK AT DIZ: Balmain has lined up Txampi Diz as the house’s first chief marketing officer.
After more than 15 years at KCD Worldwide, Diz has exited as senior vice president and managing director of KCD Paris. What he won’t be relinquishing is an advisor role to KCD’s executive board of directors. Balmain is one of the American agency’s largest clients. Balmain’s team works with KCD’s offices in New York, Paris and London across all of its divisions — media relations, creative services and digital.
In step with Diz’s news, KCD Paris has promoted Alexis Arnault and Michele Giacalone to managing directors. Previously, the two men held the title of vice president of public relations. They will work with agency partner and managing director Laurence Laure. Arnault and Giacalone have been with the agency for 14 years and 6 years respectively.
In this new post, Diz is to oversee marketing, advertising, media relations and digital responsibilities. He will report to chief executive officer Massimo Piombini and he will work closely with creative director Olivier Rousteing. Diz has been very much part of Rouesting’s inner circle as he has amassed a colossal social media following, due partially to big-name fans like Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and

Homeland Security Chief Tells Trump He Can Use Saber ‘On The Press’

After President Donald Trump received a ceremonial saber at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly could be heard on an open microphone telling him, “You can use that on the press.”

“Yeah,” Trump replied with a chuckle as Kelly smiled at the commencement ceremony in New London, Connecticut.

The exchange occurred after Trump delivered the commencement speech to new graduates, remarks in which he complained about how he’s being covered by journalists.

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump told the crowd. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.” 

The Trump administration has been embroiled in controversy over its ties to Russian officials, with the furor intensifying after reports this week he urged then-FBI Director James Comey in February to drop the agency’s probe into the matter. Comey was fired by Trump last week, one of the move that has prompted impeachment talks.

The White House has denied that Trump pressured Comey.

Kelly, a former U.S. Marine general, introduced Trump at the ceremony. He urged graduates to “tell the truth … even though it’s uncomfortable’’ and others “may not want to hear it.”

Spencer Hays, a genteel Southerner who parlayed a career as a door-to-door Bible salesman into a multimillion-dollar men’s wear business, has died at the age of 80.
The cause of death was a brain aneurysm that he suffered in New York on Wednesday, according to a spokeswoman from Tom James, one of Hays’ companies. No services have been set at this time.
Hays, who split his time between New York and Nashville, was also the owner of Oxxford Clothes and Individualized Apparel Group and the executive chairman and majority owner of the Southwestern Company, a firm that recruits students to sell books and educational materials door-to-door.
A native of Oklahoma, Hays traveled to Nashville in 1959 during his freshman year at Texas Christian University as a salesman for the Southwestern Company.

A Shark Going Inland Is My Chief


Tracing the origins of the Hawaiians and other Polynesians back to the shores of the South China Sea, archaeologist Patrick Vinton Kirch follows their voyages of discovery across the Pacific in this fascinating history of Hawaiian culture from about one thousand years ago. Combining more than four decades of his own research with Native Hawaiian oral traditions and the evidence of archaeology, Kirch puts a human face on the gradual rise to power of the Hawaiian god-kings, who by the late eighteenth century were locked in a series of wars for ultimate control of the entire archipelago. This lively, accessible chronicle works back from Captain James Cook’s encounter with the pristine kingdom in 1778, when the British explorers encountered an island civilization governed by rulers who could not be gazed upon by common people. Interweaving anecdotes from his own widespread travel and extensive archaeological investigations into the broader historical narrative, Kirch shows how the early Polynesian settlers of Hawai’i adapted to this new island landscape and created highly productive agricultural systems.

FDR and Chief Justice Hughes

FDR and Chief Justice Hughes


By the author of acclaimed books on the bitter clashes between Jefferson and Chief Justice Marshall on the shaping of the nation’s constitutional future, and between Lincoln and Chief Justice Taney over slavery, secession, and the presidential war powers. Roosevelt and Chief Justice Hughes’s fight over the New Deal was the most critical struggle between an American president and a chief justice in the twentieth century. The confrontation threatened the New Deal in the middle of the nation’s worst depression. The activist president bombarded the Democratic Congress with a fusillade of legislative remedies that shut down insolvent banks, regulated stocks, imposed industrial codes, rationed agricultural production, and employed a quarter million young men in the Civilian Conservation Corps. But the legislation faced constitutional challenges by a conservative bloc on the Court determined to undercut the president. Chief Justice Hughes often joined the Court’s conservatives to strike down major New Deal legislation. Frustrated, FDR proposed a Court-packing plan. His true purpose was to undermine the ability of the life-tenured Justices to thwart his popular mandate. Hughes proved more than a match for Roosevelt in the ensuing battle. In grudging admiration for Hughes, FDR said that the Chief Justice was the best politician in the country. Despite the defeat of his plan, Roosevelt never lost his confidence and, like Hughes, never ceded leadership. He outmaneuvered isolationist senators, many of whom had opposed his Court-packing plan, to expedite aid to Great Britain as the Allies hovered on the brink of defeat. He then led his country through World War II.
