Todd Snyder Taps Frank Muytjens as Guest Creative

Todd Snyder is a loyal friend.
First, he brought the former GQ editor Jim Moore on board to act as a stylist for his spring runway show and editorial campaigns. Now, he’s tapped Frank Muytjens, a longtime friend and one-time colleague at J. Crew, to be the first person featured in the new “Curated by” segment of his popular catalogue.
“Frank is such a huge talent and we were really close friends when we worked together at J. Crew,” Snyder said.
So it was a no-brainer when he came up for the idea for a series of creative types to curate their favorite pieces in his catalogue, that he would turn to Muytjens to kick it off. In mid-2017, Muytjens was among the casualties in J. Crew’s ongoing restructuring. Then this August, Muytjens revealed that he had partnered with artist and entrepreneur Scott Edward Cole to open a luxury bed-and-breakfast inn in the Berkshires called the Inn at Kenmore Hall.
“I wanted to partner with people who inspire me and ask them to tell me what inspires them,” he said. “The theme of this catalogue is ‘Upstate State of Mind’ so Frank was perfect for it. Plus, we probably have a very similar audience and

M1992 to Guest as Special Project at Pitti Uomo

MILAN — Italian designer Dorian Stefano Tarantini is changing the name of his brand Malibu 1992 into M1992. The new moniker will make its debut during the upcoming edition of Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 9 to 12 in Florence.
“It’s not such a radical change,” said Tarantini, addressing his will to “polish, simplify the name and have a more neutral [starting point]” for his creative process.
“Malibu [1992] tied me too much to the city of Malibu and California, which will remain part of my [inspirations], but I preferred to shorten the name also because M is the initial of Malibu but also of Milan, which is my city,” he added. The designer further stressed the importance of having a “code name, which opens to more possibilities” and of “characterizing the brand with my products and collections,” rather than with a name.
Launched almost four years ago as an artistic, 30-minute video project, Malibu 1992 evolved into a fashion brand combining Tarantini’s tornado of inspirations, ranging from music to neoclassicism, from punk to Californian luxury.
After two seasons of runway shows in Milan, the brand will unveil its new name and fashion course in Florence, as it has been selected as a special project

Jean Paul Gaultier Turns Guest Editor of French TV Guide

GOGGLEBOX: “TV turned me into who I am,” Jean Paul Gaultier declared in an interview with French TV magazine Télécâble Sat Hebdo, which made him guest editor of its latest issue.
It’s timed to coincide with the screening of the documentary “Jean Paul Gaultier Voyage” (“Jean Paul Gaultier Travels” in English) on cable channel Paris Première on April 19. Director Emmanuel Le Ber followed the designer on a trip to Argentina, Mexico and Brazil last year to launch his fragrances in those markets.
Shoving vanity aside, Gaultier gleefully defaced his photograph on the cover of the magazine, adding touches like hand-drawn red nails, red lips, blue eyes and forehead wrinkles, which he said looked like the stripes on his signature sailor tops.

French TV Guide Cover 

In a filmed extract of the interview, Gaultier confessed to being a TV addict. “I sometimes cancel professional commitments to watch certain things on TV,” he said. “I mostly watch things that are liable to inspire me.”
Indeed, Gaultier featured French reality television star Nabilla Benattia, dressed in a va-va-voom black bustier gown, in his fall 2013 haute couture show, and bearded drag performer Conchita Wurst, winner of the 2014 “Eurovision” song contest, was the star of his fall

I Was There: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Election Night Party — Without the Guest of Honor

They arrived wearing their red, white, and Hillary Clinton finest: sweaters with their candidate’s name woven into the nap, custom painted “Nasty Woman” leather jackets, yards of sequins that reflected the excitement felt all around. The supporters who came to New York City’s Javits Convention Center were ready for a party on Election Night.

Unfortunately, the party never happened.

Actress Debra Messing had on comfy-looking bright red sneakers — she was in it for the long haul. Scores of young women wore “staff” badges — though many of them were volunteers. Two little girls showed up with their family wearing “Madam President” buttons and with their faces painted red and blue; bravehearts indeed.

With some early Tuesday predictors estimating that Clinton had upwards of an 85 percent chance to become the first female U.S. President, it seemed likely there was an equal chance of showers from the confetti cannons stationed on either side of the main floor where the Democratic candidate was expected to speak.

Two days earlier, the venue was mostly quiet, save for some campaign staff handing out press credentials. I showed up late in the afternoon on Sunday, and with the shift to daylight savings time (really? An extra hour of this election?) the windowed convention center near the Hudson River was aglow in the sunset. It was impossible to miss the symbolism: That was some big glass ceiling.

By 6 p.m. on Tuesday, blocks of 11th Avenue were cordoned off by police and filled with Clinton fans who would be treated to a show by Katy Perry, and speeches from local Democrats. In between acts, election returns came up on the big screens stationed around the space and outdoors. Connecticut goes for Clinton: Cheers! New Mexico: Cheers!

Having taken to heart the “Don’t boo—vote!” directive from President Obama, there was little in the way of jeering when Donald Trump voters turned a state red; instead it just got quiet. Kentucky. Georgia. Indiana. No big deal, people reminded one another, those are usually Republican states. Here, let’s take a selfie with Mayor Bill DeBlasio in the background.

Then Virginia, Tim Kaine’s home state, was teetering. (It eventually went blue.) And Florida. And people began having the Florida flashbacks: “It reminds me a lot of Gore-Bush,” said a woman from the Virgin Islands. “We all went to bed that night thinking Gore had won and woke up and Bush had won. So I’m not giving up hope.”

Her friend, wearing a ‘HillYeah’ button on her hat, added, “I think we thought she would have been ahead more at this stage.”


Small groups gathered around the TV monitors in the basement cafeteria. There was a run on pasta and beer.

“It is definitely nerve-wracking,” said a supporter from Connecticut, smiling insistently. Moments before she had told me, “The energy is fantastic,” and she seemed to be sticking to that. Her friend wasn’t so sure. Maybe they should think about driving home? “I want to see history being made and I’m afraid if I leave I’ll regret it if she does win.”

The night wore on. The cafeteria closed. The beer bottles emptied, the starchy comfort food consumed. The TV monitors continued to bleed red. The young women volunteers were rotating in and out of the ladies’ room, eyes red.

The faithful were trying to hold on to hope, but it wasn’t easy.

A New York supporter whose daughter was about the age of these campaign workers told me, “My heart is hanging on every word here. I’m on the verge of tears. I’m so upset right now. I have a 20-year-old daughter in college, and I just feel if he gets to be president … It’s all over. It’s just … nothing.”

A rumor circulated after midnight that the venue had to be cleared out by 2 a.m. Suddenly it was after 1 a.m., and the dais remained empty. The crowds were still, well, crowded. And they did what crowds do: They huddled, goofed for the cameras when turned on them, and sang along to the piped-in music.

By 1:30 a.m. or so, two things happened: we began to hear that Secretary Clinton would not speak tonight, but instead would send campaign chairman John Podesta, as at least three states were still too close to call.

The PA system blared what is usually a party-pleaser: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” On the screen the crowd saw itself reflected, and gamely joined in with Steve Perry’s vocals: “Don’t stop believing, hold on to that fe-eee-lin’. ” Was anyone else thinking about what these words mean? Did anyone else feel that this was as final as the Sopranos finale that had used the song before cutting to black?

Though the big screens, still on closed circuit, didn’t announce it in the moment, Pennsylvania was called for Trump, effectively giving him the win. Podesta took the stage, told us all to go home and get some sleep. There would be more in the morning.

And there was: About eight hours later, the candidate finally spoke. But the party was over, and her supporters — many more than had been at that windowed convention center — gathered in our shared virtual space to hear the first woman to win the popular vote for United States president offer her apologies for not winning the election. “This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for,” said Sec. Clinton. “And I’m sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country.”

No, this was not the outcome that those who had traveled to the Javits Center had wanted.

I listened to the worries, and tears, and frustrations of supporters as they filed out into the New York City night, past a street vendor with a keen market sense selling Hillary T-shirts marked down to $ 5. I didn’t hear anyone asking for their candidate’s apology. There were practical matters to attend to: Would Uber be able to get through the police barricades? Is the subway okay to take at 3 a.m.?

I took a last look at the building, still lit, and that glass ceiling still frustratingly untouched.

The Unexpected Wedding Guest

The Unexpected Wedding Guest


Wellington Estate, the Hamptons Reese stood On the small platform in the elegant sitting room furnished in eighteenth-century antiques, smoothing her hands down the satin. The wedding gown fit her waist just right, hugging her body to her hips before flaring in a dreamy swirl of tulle that floated to the floor, one hundred yards total. She had only one issue with the dress, and, unfortunately, the problem was getting bigger. Or technically, smaller. With a frown, she reached into her strapless bodice and adjusted her right breast. “Don’t bother.” Amber met her gaze in the full-length mirror, her words muffled by the pins in her mouth, her hands fingering the bodice at the seam. “We need cream puffs.” With a sigh, Reese dropped her hand to her side, staring at her reflection. Proof positive that God was indeed male. Because there could be no justice in a world that declared a woman must lose weight in her boobs first. “Is that the best my seamstress, bridesmaid and future sister-in-law can come up with?” She sent Amber a dry look. “Your breasts are shrinking so bring on the cream puffs?” The redhead’s face flushed with pleasure. “Your brother and I aren’t engaged.” “Yet,” Reese said with a smile. Amber removed the pins from her mouth. “We’re here to talk about your wedding,” she said. “And at this rate, you won’t have anything left to fill out your dress. Do you want the bodice looking like the empty bucket of a bulldozer as you make your way up the aisle?” Her friend stabbed a pin through the fabric under Reese’s left arm before she went on. “I told you to stop stressing about the wedding and let the event planner do her thing.” “She’s driving me crazy.” “You hired her to do a job,” Amber said as she continued to work, her voice firm. “So let her do it.” “But she keeps forgetting it’s my wedding,” Reese said. “Why else would she act as if she has such a vested interest in the bride and groom’s first dance?” She blew out a breath. “I swear I spend more time defending my choices to her than anything else.” Amber shot her a concerned look. “Keep this frantic pace up and I’ll be altering this dress the day of your wedding. Which, I might add” she jabbed the last pin into place “is only six days away.” The knot of anticipation tightened in Reese’s belly. Six days to ensure every detail was just right. But as she stared out of the second-floor window at the manicured grounds of Bellington Estategrounds that included several formal gardensa sense of peace rolled through her body. June in the Hamptons was gorgeous. Spring showers had done beautiful things to the one hundred acres that surrounded the twenty-five-bedroom, historical home, the closest thing to a castle that Reese could find. The perfect place for her fairy-tale wedding. But it wasn’t the antique-adorned rooms, the priceless artwork, or the towering stone turrets that had sold her on the location. Yes, the grounds were perfect fo

Guest Advice Columnist: Lorde!

Topical Magazine is delighted to have 18-year-old global pop music phenomenon Lorde joining us this week as our guest advice columnist! She’ll be taking your questions in this special edition issue and giving you her take on whatever you need advice on!

~

Dear Lorde,

I started a new job and one of my co-workers is this cute guy who recently graduated from NYU. He’s a total babe! I totally have a thing for him but I don’t want my romantic and professional life to clash, but I like him more and more everyday! My friends say I shouldn’t pursue it, but the more I ignore my crush, the more I like him! What should I do?!

-Allison Greenhalgh, 24, New York City

Allison,

Don’t let your friends be such a Gwyneth Paltrow. Oh, you should know I’ve replaced saying “buzz kill” with “Gwyneth Paltrow.” First, you need to find out more about him. Try to inconspicuously cut off a lock of his hair. Then try to inconspicuously get him to pee in a cup. Then inconspicuously show up at a protest he’s attending in Washington Square Park (he went to NYU, let’s be honest). Then inconspicuously corner him at his local bodega and ask him what he thinks about the possibility of you two getting romantically involved. This will determine the possibility of you two getting romantically involved.

Hope this helps!
-Lorde

Dear Lorde,

OMG!!! BIG fan here. HUGE fan, actually! I don’t even want to talk about my problem (I’m a 33-year-old nurse practitioner with a crippling addition to the lazy river at water parks). I just want to gush! I love your songs “Team” and “The Love Club.” How can I be just like you?!

-Cameron Lipkin, 33, Atlantic City

Cameron,

Everyone should honor their individuality, but if you want try some things that I sometimes do you can: amalgamate haute couture with fun sportswear. Google “DIY hexes.” Hang out by a creek. Walk into Ann Taylor Loft while burning sage. Make a mosaic of Sylvia Plath’s face out of baby teeth. Dip your hair in blood and whip it back and forth at a Lady Antebellum concert. Draw a pentagram in a highly concentrated area of body glitter on a sorority girl’s shoulder. Google “Is the Blair Witch lonely?” Have a hearty laugh at some popular teens at the mall.

Hope this helps!
-Lorde

Dear Lorde,

My friends and I started this new punk band called The Sexual Pen Pals. We were wondering if you’d consider us opening for you if we sent you some of our demos! Also, our question is: how do we combat any sort of creative ruts we may face along the way?

-Brian Dobson, 22, Brooklyn

Brian,

I accept this offer! I accept it with a passion of a thousand burning suns, the enthusiasm of a college freshman at their first extracurricular meeting, and the joy of finding out your favorite 90’s TV show has just been uploaded to Netflix. In regards to creative blocks: go rent a private room at a karaoke bar and scream yourself hoarse.

Hope this helps!
-Lorde

Dear Lorde,

My roller derby team, The Varicose Vein Vixens, is throwing our annual benefit BBQ and I feel like every year I’m always the one who is always doing everything. How do I tell my teammates I feel like I’m always picking up everyone’s slack without coming off as a Bitter Betsy?

-Sloan “Frosted Tip$ ” McEwen, 43, Pittsburgh

Sloan,

Smear the darkened, charred part of black forest ham underneath your eyes and take your frustration out on some interns by beating them with brooms. Once you’ve calmed down a bit, calmly express how you’ve been feeling to your teammates. Then go off on a 45 minute diatribe expressing how gross the watery discharge that comes out of a freshly opened bottle of ketchup is because, right?!?!

Hope that helps,
-Lorde

Dear Lorde,

I just had a really tough break-up. We have a close mutual friend who has a birthday coming up and my ex going to be there. I’m still heartbroken over him, what should I do when I inevitably bump into him?

-Jamie Richards, 19, Tampa

Jamie

Keep your head held high and when he asks how you’re doing keep repeatedly saying “I’m fine!” while building volume into a scream until he runs away.

Hope this helps!

Christian Siriano

With the recent runaway success of its I’m No Angel campaign, Lane Bryant has the fashion industry buzzing. And the plus-size retailer is hoping to keep that momentum going through next year, with today’s announcement that Christian Siriano will become its newest guest designer.

The Project Runway alum, known for his curve-hugging red carpet gowns, will launch a capsule collection for the specialty retailer, which will bow in spring 2016. Siriano joins the ranks of Bryant’s former designer collaborators such as Isabel Toledo, Sophie Theallet, and Lela Rose.

christian-siriano-on-red-carpet Stars in Christian Siriano: Juliette Lewis, Christina Hendricks, Heidi Klum.

“Fashion should never be defined by size,” Siriano said in a statement about the collection, which will range in size from 14 to 28. “Regardless if it’s for red carpet or a day at the office, every woman should feel stylish and comfortable in their clothes. I’m excited about this partnership with Lane Bryant because it allows me the opportunity to showcase my designs on the everyday woman and allow them the opportunity to feel as beautiful and fashionable as possible.”

    Going to a Wedding? Don’t Be That Guest

    ‘Tis the season for attending weddings! Are you going to a wedding (or five) this summer? You too can flawlessly navigate the unspoken rules of weddings and avoid any guest gaffes with these tips from real-life brides and grooms.

    Couple Conundrum: Late or Missing RSVP’s
    Recent bride and groom, Emma and Adam, had large extended families and a wedding venue with a small capacity, meaning they weren’t able to include some friends on their original guest list simply because of space. When a sizeable chunk of RSVP’s failed to arrive, they assumed those guests weren’t planning to attend and decided to extend invitations to those they didn’t quite have room for originally. Unfortunately, their assumption was incorrect. More responses than they bargained for eventually rolled in and affected guest counts — which ultimately affected their budget and caused some serious stress with venue capacity.

    Pro Tip: RSVP on Time
    Do the couple a favor and RSVP as quickly as possible, and certainly before the requested date. The RSVP card is one of the most important planning tools the couple has, but they need your cooperation for it to be effective. Show your enthusiasm and excitement for their big day by responding promptly. Texting doesn’t count! And don’t assume you have a plus one, unless the invitation specifically says so.

    Couple Conundrum: Duplicate Gifts
    Last summer, brides-to-be Danielle and Stephanie spent weekend upon weekend meticulously curating their registries at various department stores, only to be gifted not one, but three of the same gift that wasn’t on their registry. After trying to return two of the three identical gifts, they discovered that the credit had been applied back to the gift-giver’s credit cards, much to their dismay…and embarrassment!

    Pro Tip: Use the Registry
    The registry is there for a reason. Stick with it to avoid putting the couple in a potentially awkward situation. If you can’t find the couple’s registry ask a member of the family or bridal party. There are exceptions, of course, like personal and meaningful gifts, gift cards and cash.

    Couple Conundrum: Specific Dress Codes
    When Becca was invited to an Indian wedding last year, she did her research on what to wear (at Indian weddings brighter is better!) and found a beautiful jewel-toned dress as opposed to something with a more neutral or conservative tone. She had an amazing time, felt beautiful and fit right in with the party. Three cheers for doing homework in advance!

    Pro Tip: Do Your Homework
    A wedding is not the place to flaunt your new avant-garde look! If you’re unsure of the dress code, use the season or the wedding venue as a cue. Be sure to do your research, too, in case there are any important cultural preferences you should be aware of. And if all else fails, just ask a bridesmaid! They can always give you the scoop.

    Couple Conundrum: Unwanted Social Sharing
    Facebook and Instagram may be great ways to share life’s special moments, but be careful. In many cultures it’s considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding. Last fall one groom, John, unintentionally saw his bride, Juanita, before she walked down the aisle. One of Juanita’s bridesmaids had posted a photo of her getting ready on Instagram before the wedding had begun!

    Pro Tip: Post with Caution While the overzealous bridesmaid certainly didn’t mean any harm, it’s a good lesson for us all. Be mindful with social media — especially at weddings — as posts can have unintended but serious consequences. Even though it’s tempting to post throughout the event, remember it’s the couple’s special day, so look for any guidelines. If you don’t see any instructions, just follow the couple’s lead!

    Regardless of the situation, you can be sure that you don’t want to be that guest! You know the one. Avoid anything that makes you the center of attention. It’s never fun to have regrets the next morning. Pace yourself with the bubbly, participate in the activities, dance your heart out and have a blast celebrating. Just be sure to keep yourself in check. Soak in every moment of this special day and show your support for the newlyweds!

    How to Be a Good Wedding Guest

    6 Ways to Make Things Easier for the Groom and Bride-to-be

    Forget Emily Post, forget the guides to etiquette — this is about how to be the kind of wedding guest the bride and groom want you to be. Just as with the guide for parents of the happy couple, this is — seriously — what brides and grooms wish their guests knew. Planning a wedding, though lovely and romantic, can be a very stressful process… and there are a few things you as a guest can do to make life a little easier on the happy couple.

    1. RSVP ASAP
    Whether it’s yes or no, let the couple know as soon as possible whether you’ll attend — don’t wait until the RSVP deadline. The bride and groom are so excited after all their planning to receive the first RSVPs, so why not be the guests to give them that joy? Also, the “soonlyweds” may be aiming for a certain number of guests, so could be waiting for the first round of “no” RSVPs to activate a B-list of invitations. Thinking you don’t need to RSVP because of course the bride and groom know you’re coming? They don’t.

    RSVPing no? Mention the reason, so you don’t leave the couple guessing if it’s because you don’t like their spouse-to-be. Don’t worry that you’re being rude by declining; the bride and groom understand not everyone can come, and it’s better they know early to count you out, rather than making spare escort cards and a just-in-case seating plan. If your answer for the moment is maybe, let the couple know that, and when you can give a definite reply: for example, you need a few weeks to arrange a baby-sitter. At least then the bride and groom know where things stand with your invitation.

    Also, RSVP for the people on the invitation. Only if it says your name “and guest” is it polite to RSVP for a +1. If it says “and family” or the names of your children, your little ones are indeed invited, and your reply should make it clear which of those people will be attending.

    2. RSVP “officially”
    Pay attention to the RSVP request. If the invitation includes an RSVP card, fill it out and post it back; if there is an email address or phone number to SMS, use them. The point is to make sure the soonlyweds know that, when you give your RSVP, it’s your official answer. Shortly after sending out save-the-dates for our own wedding, we saw some invitees at a party and they mentioned, “Ooh, we’d love to come!” Afterwards my groom and I were confused: Was that their official RSVP? How tipsy were they? Does “we’d love to come” mean “yes, we’re coming” or “it’s a shame we can’t?” If you reply in person, lead with “We’d like to give our official RSVP, and…” — just so it’s clear!

    3. Bring a gift
    You wouldn’t show up to a birthday or house-warming party without a gift, so why do so for something more significant like a wedding? Anyone who thinks weddings are simply a gift-grab has clearly never organized one; big-day gifts don’t cover the costs of the event (let alone “the chair”), so no one is putting their nuptials together to make a profit. Of course, only buy a gift that’s within your means. Can’t afford one? Let the bride and groom know money is tight and you hope your presence will do well as a present (especially if it’s costing you money to join the wedding); they will of course understand. You could even offer to help with wedding preparations in lieu of a gift.

    Not giving a gift also poses a conundrum for the bride and groom. In our case, by the time of our wedding, one-third of the guests had not given gifts. So could we now buy the remaining items on the registry, or do we need to keep some there for people who might buy later? And then it came time to buy thank-you cards… should we only buy for those who have already given gifts, or spend more on buying spares in case of late gifts?

    Also, buy from the registry. Whether or not you think registries are tacky, you know its tips are items the happy couple want (or need), something they don’t already own, and they won’t receive two because it will be removed from the registry once you buy it. And, buy early. They won’t admit it, but the bride and groom are “registry stalking” — keeping tabs on their registry to see what’s being bought. (Partly necessary so they can see if they must add more gifts, or more gifts in a certain price range.) The bride and groom will be super excited to see the first items disappear from their registry, and will wonder who their mystery purchasers might be!

    4. Share dietary requirements
    If soon before the big day you haven’t received questions about your dietary requirements, speak up — the couple probably hasn’t thought about it. In the month before the wedding, the bride and groom need to confirm the menu with their reception venue. Don’t assume your old friend the bride of course remembers you’re vegan, have food allergies or religious restrictions. Simply don’t like cucumber or prefer your steak cooked a certain way? Skip sharing. The reception venue probably doesn’t allow for too many or those kinds of exceptions; it’s difficult to feed such a large group and keep everyone happy! Forgot to share your dietary requirements until the night? Notify your waiter you need something different; don’t bother the bride and groom.

    5. Dress appropriately
    Pay attention to any dress code on the invitation. The bride and groom have added it to achieve a certain atmosphere or theme at their wedding, and also because they don’t want any guests to feel embarrassed by being over-dressed (or under-dressed!).

    Also, some pointers for female guests. Ladies, don’t wear white. Just don’t. And don’t gently ask the bride if it’s fine (“because you’ll be beautiful anyway so it’s not like I’ll draw attention from you”). It’s not fine, and she might feel pressured to say yes… and then feel awkward and resentful. Similarly, think twice before wearing black; you may have the cutest LBD ever, but if all female guests make the same sartorial move, the event will quickly look like a funeral. Lastly, pay attention to the invitation colors, like fonts and ribbons; it’s most likely one of those colors is the shade the bridesmaids will wear, so skip that color to avoid looking like a bridal party wannabe.

    6. Check before you ask
    Got a question about the big day? Check the invitation, wedding website or emails from the happy couple regarding hotels, transport, directions, etc before you bother the bride and groom. They spent time putting together those resources for a reason, and if every guest checks every question with them, you’ll end up with stressed-out soonlyweds. Also, consider if your question is one that could be answered elsewhere (Google can help you plan your sightseeing itinerary) or can’t be answered at all (like what the weather will be like on the big day).

    This advice goes double for the final week before the wedding, when the happy couple will likely be stressed, busy and nervous. If you have a burning question, ask the bridal party or a family member rather than take up the couple’s time… and don’t even think about contacting the bride and groom on the day of the wedding! Got a question or request during the wedding itself, like your table hasn’t received their drinks or the reception room is too warm? Ask a staff member or the wedding planner rather than bothering the happy couple.

    What do you think is involved in being a good wedding guest? What do you wish your wedding guests knew to help make your life as bride and groom a little bit easier?

    The Upside of a Destination Wedding: Tales of a Serial Wedding Guest

    The invite came in the summer of 2013. A friend was marrying the man she’d met a few years before in an East Village cheese shop. Despite their cultural and religious differences—her father was a pastor in Phoenix; his family was Jewish and lived in Israel—their initial rendezvous over discounted Gruyere had been auspicious. They’d fallen in love, moved in together, and she’d begun to learn Hebrew. The wedding would take place in the hills of Jerusalem, in August. “I know it’s expensive and a long trip,” she told me. “No pressure to come. But you’re invited and it would be amazing if you did.”

    Hilarious Couple Shows Us It’s TOO Easy To Cut Your Wedding Guest List

    Trying to narrow down your wedding guest list may seem like an impossible task at first. Consider all of the family, friends, family friends, neighbors, co-workers and ex-lovers who saw your engagement news on Facebook and are eagerly awaiting the invitation.

    In a video posted to the Upright Citizens Brigade YouTube channel on Tuesday, comedians (and real-life couple) Laura Grey and Jordan Klepper discover that slashing the guest list isn’t quite as difficult as they thought.

    Grounds for elimination include bra size (if bigger than bride’s), weird bangs, lack of black friends and a preference for the American version of “The Office.”

    If you get cut, it’s nothing personal. Well, actually, maybe it is.

    Anna Gunn To Guest Star On ‘The Mindy Project’

    Anna Gunn is trading in a meth empire for scrubs and will guest star on “The Mindy Project,” E! Online reports. She’ll be playing Mindy’s (Mindy Kaling) hero, Sheila Hamilton, a New York OB/GYN who tries to woo her from her current residency at Shulman & Associates.

    Gunn, who recently won an Emmy for her role as Skyler White on the AMC series “Breaking Bad,” will appear in the 13th episode this season. It will be her first acting gig since the show’s finale, and viewers can safely assume her time on “The Mindy Project” will be less dramatic than her role on “Breaking Bad.”

    Since beginning its second season back in September, “The Mindy Project” has already welcomed a number of guest stars such as James Franco, Adam Pally (the “Happy Endings” star has since become a series regular) and Timothy Olyphant. However, after Gunn’s role in one of the most talked about shows in recent television history, and on the heels of her Emmy win, this is a coup for “The Mindy Project.”

    “The Mindy Project” airs Tues. at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
