German Chancellor Angela Merkel Meets the Fashion Council Germany

MERKEL À LA MODE: For the three-year old Fashion Council Germany, it was a much-longed-for first: an official invitation for the Council board, select guests and fashion industry opinion leaders to a reception Friday at the Bundeskanzleramt, or Chancellor’s Office, from Dorothee Bär, the German commissioner for digitalization and state minister. “I see today’s meeting as the beginning of a dialogue to advance the concept of fashion designed/made in Germany in the digital age,” she remarked.
However, that was just the start. To everyone’s surprise — and delight — the chancellor herself, Angela Merkel, took the time to appear at the gathering and briefly talk to FCG members. Wearing a light blue dupioni silk blazer and navy trousers, and openly relieved to have the latest cabinet crisis behind her, she quipped, “What you [the fashion industry] do is 100 percent more interesting for people out there than what we’ve been doing the last days. Make sure you take a picture of all of us,” she added, “and I’ll put it up on Instagram.”
In a casual tête-à-tête on the balcony with the council board, Merkel was told that funding was needed to the tune of about 30 million euros to support critical

German Museum Details Jil Sander Solo Exhibition

Frankfurt’s Museum Angewandte Kunst – which is to host a sprawling exhibition dedicated to celebrated designer Jil Sander – said it would span not only her esthetic in fashion, but also her architectural preferences and passion for gardens.

While curated by museum director Matthias Wagner K, Sander herself collaborated closely on the solo show, which will spread over 3,000 square meters. It draws heavily on her archive and delves into her quest for modernity and quality in design.

Watch JLaw’s Jaw Drop When Chris Pratt Speaks German

Uh oh! Chris Pratt just broke Jennifer Lawrence.

Pratt’s been having fun cropping his “Passengers” co-star out of pictures while on the press tour for their new movie. But those days might be over after Lawrence seemingly malfunctioned during a recent Facebook Live interview the pair did with Bild, a Berlin entertainment website.

Pratt supposedly learned German in school, so the interviewer put him to the test, asking if he understood the German she had just spoken. He said that he did and repeated it back, causing JLaw’s face to do this:

And this:

And later this: 

We’re so mesmerized by Lawrence being mesmerized that it’s hard to notice the way the pair are sitting makes it look like the movie is called “Assengers.”

Good catch, Imgur.

Lol … “Assengers.”

OK, OK, that’s all fun, but an interview is going on, peeps. Let’s get serious. Things get back underway, and it finally appears Lawrence is going to be good … until Pratt breaks out the German again:

Same, JLaw. Same.

You can see all of Lawrence’s faces in the Facebook Live video here:

Also, Lawrence does mention her appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” which caused some controversy after the actress told a story about scratching her butt on sacred rocks. But this interview took place before the demand for Lawrence to apologize filled headlines this week. The actress has since addressed the incident.

Diane von Furstenberg’s Autobiography Goes German in Berlin and Hamburg

BERLIN — Make it three for three: Diane von Furstenburg was on a three-day hop in Germany late last week to present “Die Frau, die ich sein wollte,” the third language version of her autobiography, which is now available in English, Italian and German. Chinese and French translations of “The Woman I Wanted to Be” are planned for the end of 2016. “We still have to sell it to Spain and Japan,” the designer said during a visit to Berlin’s  department store KaDeWe Thursday.
The tour started Wednesday evening with a reading and book signing at the Autorenbuchhandlung, or Author’s Book Shop under the S-Bahn arches of Berlin Savignyplatz. It was packed event, “and I even saw old friends — like Veruschka [von Lehndorff],” von Furstenberg remarked, smiling.
Another friend, David Chipperfield, filled in the Thursday night slot with a dinner for the designer at his Berlin home, and after Friday’s book signing at the new Unger concept store Uzwei in Hamburg, von Furstenberg was having dinner with Jil Sander, “who I haven’t seen in maybe  25 years so I e-mailed her.”

Berlin’s German Historical Museum Looks Back On 150 Years Of Gay Milestones

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s main national history museum on Wednesday launched an exhibition tracing 150 years of gay history in the country, including the first uses of the term “homosexual,” the brutal Nazi-era repression of gays and gradual moves toward legal equality starting in the 1960s.

The exhibition at the German Historical Museum in Berlin, which is staging it together with the capital’s privately run Gay Museum, has been four years in the planning but is opening amid a new debate in Germany over whether to allow full-fledged marriage for same-sex couples. They have been able to enter civil partnerships since 2001 but much of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party is reluctant to go further. Culture Minister Monika Gruetters said at the show’s presentation that it “puts the current debate about legal equality into a historical context.” She said it shows “how hard-fought the progress we can speak of today was, not just legally but also in society’s perceptions.”

The show, “Homosexuality_ies,” opens to the public Friday and runs through Dec. 1, featuring photo and film material, artifacts including an electric shock device used for “aversion therapy” in the 1950s and an “A to Z” section exploring issues ranging from gay marriage to censorship.

One of the earliest exhibits is a handwritten 1868 letter from Vienna-born writer Karl Maria Kertbeny to a German advocate of legal reform, Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, which is believed to be the oldest written record anywhere of the words “homosexual” and “heterosexual.”

It also features the work of scientists such as sex researcher Magnus Hirschfeld, whose pioneering Institute for Sexual Research was shut down and looted shortly after the Nazis took power in 1933. The Nazi regime toughened the 1872 law criminalizing sex between men; West Germany changed the so-called “paragraph 175” to decriminalize it only in 1969.

Nazi Germany convicted some 50,000 homosexuals as criminals. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 gay men were deported to concentration camps. A room in the exhibition titled “In the Pink Triangle” explores the stories of men and women caught up in Nazi persecution.

Millions In Cocaine Delivered To German Grocery Stores, Plus Bananas

Whoops!

Nearly 400 kilograms of cocaine were hidden in banana shipments sent to Aldi supermarkets in and around Berlin, Germany, earlier this week, according to news site The Local. Police spokesman Stefan Redlich called the error a “logistical mistake,” Agence France-Presse reported.

German police initially valued the haul at close to $ 17 million, but they may have lowballed it. An updated statement said the drugs had a high degree of purity and a street price of nearly $ 44 million.

The shipments are presumed to have traveled a well-known drug smuggling route from Colombia to Europe, Germany’s Deutsche Welle reported. Investigators were reportedly still searching through Aldi’s banana supply for other illicit imports.

Amazingly, this is not the first time that Aldi stores in Germany have received cocaine with their bananas. In January 2014, The Local reported that police had found 140 kilos of the drug in those supermarkets in what was hailed as the second-largest bust in Berlin in 35 years.

Someone’s in trouble.
