Queen Hands Honors to Jo Malone, Charlotte Tilbury, Caroline Neville

LOCAL COLOR: It’s that time of year again, when Queen Elizabeth doles out her birthday honors and the royals and British military celebrate the monarch’s official birthday with the Trooping the Colour parade.
Although the queen’s 92nd birthday fell on April 21, the official celebration always takes place in June, a tradition that dates to 1748. A great display of British military might, the event involves the guards of the Household Division and Horse Guards in the British Army.
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part for the first time, with Meghan Markle wearing an off-the shoulder rose-colored dress by Carolina Herrera and a Phillip Treacy hat. She also made her first appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, waving to the public as a fully-fledged member of Britain’s royal family.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a pale blue square-neck dress by Alexander McQueen with a matching Juliette Botterill hat. She rode in a carriage with the Duchess of Cornwall. Prince William, who holds the position of royal colonel of the Irish Guards, rode on horseback during the ceremony.
The Queen also released her annual Birthday Honours list of 1,057 people

Prince William Hands Richard James a Queen’s Honor

JAMES’ DAY: Savile Row tailor Richard James swung by Buckingham Palace on Friday to collection his Queen’s honor for services to men’s fashion. He received the OBE, or Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, from Prince William, and wore the gold cross-shaped medal on the front pocket of his peacock-blue jacket.
“Prince William was delightful, and he remembered me, which was very sweet,” said James who’d visited Kensington Palace years ago to alter some suits that he’d made for the prince. He didn’t make as much fuss about his own suit. “It’s off the peg,” he said during a celebratory Champagne tea at his store on 29 Savile Row. The soggy snowstorm outside did nothing to dampen the mood inside, as James was pulled in multiple directions by friends and well-wishers.
The past 12 months have been major for James, who last year marked the brand’s 25th anniversary and sold the company to one of his clients, Charles S. Cohen, the American multibillionaire. Later this year, Cohen plans to open the first Richard James store in New York, on Park Avenue and 57th Street.
The 1,800-square-foot space, will be housed in what was once the tallest residential building in Manhattan and will

Selena Gomez And The Weeknd Hold Hands, Continue To Keep Us Guessing

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd just took their relationship to the next level: they experienced the all-important “group hang.”

The pair stepped out in Hollywood after palling around with French Montana, Jaden Smith and friends at Dave & Buster’s on Wednesday night. Gomez and The Weeknd sure looked cozy, as they held hands and drove off together around 3 a.m.

This is the first time the two have appeared in public together since they were caught kissing earlier this month. Despite the buzz around their potential romance, both Gomez and The Weeknd have kept mum on the subject, although they’ve dropped a few hints here and there. They are officially following each other on Instagram, and a source tells E! News that they text every day.

These two continue to keep us on our toes. One thing’s for sure: they have excellent taste in date spots.

Alarming Numbers Of People Are Trying To Rip Apples Open With Their Bare Hands

Hey, it’s the weekend. Have you got absolutely nothing to do? Why not destroy an apple using only your brute strength? (Just make sure to eat it afterward — food waste is bad, people!)

We bring this up because the young and hip on Twitter are apparently all about the #SuperSageAppleChallenge. The “challenge” is whether or not you can use your bare hands to squeeze or twist an apple in two. Chances are, you can’t.

The task got its start — and its name — from Sage Northcutt, a UFC fighter whose muscled hands make apples quake. He tweeted a video of himself inflicting fruity carnage on Tuesday and encouraged his followers to do the same.

He also tweeted an apple-breaking clip at Chrissy Teigen for her birthday, which seemed to really impress her.

Here are some other people who may or may not also impress Teigen.

If you embark on this challenge and live to tell the tale, let us know. Just be careful.

Your Life In Your Hands

Your Life In Your Hands


One out of nine women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In fact, it is the second leading cause of cancer death for women (after lung cancer) and the leading overall cause of death in women between the ages of forty and fifty-five. For too long women have erroneously believed that there is little or nothing they can do to prevent this dread illness. Our major medical efforts are directed toward detecting and treating, rather than preventing, breast cancer. Professor Jane Plant, one of Britain’s most eminent scientists, contracted breast cancer in 1987. She had five recurrences, and, by 1993, the cancer had spread to her lymph system. When orthodox medicine gave up and she was told that she only had three months to live, she determined to use her extensive scientific training and her knowledge of other cultures to find a way to survive. In her research, she was startled to find that in China breast cancer affects far fewer women than in Western countries. Plant considered that there could be a dietary trigger for the illness. As she continued her scientific investigations, she became convinced that there was a causal link between consumption of dairy products and breast cancer. Jane Plant finally defeated her breast cancer, in part because she used her training and knowledge as a natural scientist to understand it- and then overcome it. Combining the diet her research had led to with traditional medical treatment, Professor Plant was not only able to triumph over her own disease but also to pass on what she had discovered to help more than sixty other women successfully fight their breast cancer. In this book, women will be presented for the first time with a compelling body of evidence strongly suggesting that consumption of dairy products may cause breast cancer. It will demonstrate the specific changes that women can make in their day-to-day lives to help prevent and treat breast cancer. With a clear statement of the scientific princip

You’ll Need More Than A Credit Card To Get Your Hands on Saint Laurent’s New Couture Collection

With price tags in the 5-digit range, couture collections are prohibitively expensive for most of us. But now, Saint Laurent is taking the already exclusive category to the next level.

Today, the French fashion house announced plans to bring back couture with “Yves Saint Laurent” Couture ivory silk label under the tutelage of designer Hedi Slimane. The house’s last couture show was in 2002 and designed by the late Yves Saint Laurent, who died in 2008.

The new collection of silky tuxedos and black column dresses will debut in Saint Laurent ads shot by Slimane next month. But shelling out tens of thousands of dollars for a look simply won’t be enough to get your hands on one. According to the brand’s chief executive, Francesca Bellettini, you’ll also need to be a “friend of the house”.

saint-laurent-couture-ny-times

An ad for “Yves Saint Laurent” Couture photographed by Hedi Slimane.

“Hedi Slimane decides these orders case by case. Unlike a couture collection, this is an even more exclusive definition,” Bellettini, told The New York Times. She also said that the collection will be available to actresses to be worn for red carpet events, such as the Oscars or the Cannes Film Festival.

“Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands:” The Inspiration Behind the Novel

2015-05-22-1432296362-180571-img_5138.jpg

It’s one of those classic, absolutely reasonable questions–that is, alas, as impossible to answer briefly as the meaning of life. But I am asked it often. All novelists are.

Where do your ideas come from?

The glib answer–always offered with a smile–is this: “Macy’s.”

The reality is that each of my 17 novels sprang from a very different seed and grew in a very different fashion. My most recent novel, “Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands,” is a case in point.

Emily Shepard, the 17-year-old Vermonter who narrates the book, was born in Beirut–or, at the very least, she was conceived there. It was December 2012, and I had arrived in the city while on a seven-day speaking tour in Lebanon. My plane landed around 3:30 in the afternoon, which my body clock adamantly told me was really 10:30 at night. I went out to dinner with my hosts from one of the universities, and returned to my hotel around 11 p.m.–at about the time I would be rising if I were back home in Vermont. I had slept on the plane, but not very much. I was exhausted and knew I should go right to bed, since the next day was going to begin with a breakfast meeting.

But I didn’t go to sleep, because I had started reading a novel on the flight and had to finish it. It was riveting. The book? Emma Donoghue’s “Room.” It wasn’t simply the plot that held me fast, as taut as it is; it was the narrator. As a novelist, I was dazzled by the authenticity of the voice Donoghue had created for her five-year-old male storyteller. That’s right, a little boy named Jack shares with us the wrenching, adult story of his and his mother’s imprisonment in a shed, and his mother’s desperate attempt to save them both.

I finished the novel around two in the morning in Beirut, and knew I wanted my next novel to be a first-person tale with a voice that genuine and unexpected. I had no idea, however, who that storyteller would be. An important detail, I know.

Ten days later I was back in my beloved 802. (We have just one area code here in Vermont: 802.) I went to lunch with a friend of mine, Annie Ramniceanu, a therapist who at the time was working with teens in trouble. She told me how a couple of homeless kids–teens who were falling through the system–had built igloos against the Lake Champlain cold out of trash bags filled with wet, frozen leaves, and I knew instantly the novel I wanted to write.

The very idea of a teen girl living alone in one of those igloos broke my heart. That image haunted me–and spurred me on.

And I knew my narrator. I knew Emily Shepard was a cutter and Oxycontin addict, and an aspiring poet with a girl crush on Emily Dickinson. She was a homeless kid and an orphan trying desperately to keep it together after a Fukushima-scale meltdown of Vermont’s lone nuclear plant.

Most of my novels begin very much like this: an inspiration. An anecdote. An unexpected synaptic connection.

Now, “Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands” is not the first time I’ve had a female narrator share with my readers a story. “Midwives,” “Trans-Sister Radio,” “Secrets of Eden,” and “The Sandcastle Girls” had female narrators, too.

But, as I will reveal in my post here next week, this was the first time I found myself texting my teenage daughter for hipster-speak synonyms for “hookup” and “stoned.”

Stay tuned.

(The paperback of “Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands” arrives this Tuesday, on May 26.)

Switching Hands


When Melanie Paxton takes over as manager of a vintage clothing shop in a small, New England town, she makes the bold decision to add a selection of sexy toys and fetish merchandise to her inventory. Sales skyrocket, and so does Melanie’s popularity, as she teases sexy secrets out of the town’s residents. It seems she can do no wrong, until she enters into an unorthodox domestic partnership with her former college professor and his wife – both spanking fans. Then the gossip starts – about Mel’s wild past and her particular experimental brand of sexuality. However, she finds an unlikely – and very hunky – ally called Nathan who works at the history museum next door. The course is set for a curious alliance between the sassy sexpert and the antiquities scholar!

A Roommate With A Lot Of Time On His Hands Was Behind This Engagement Prank

When one man’s roommates left town for the weekend and got engaged, he decided to celebrate their love with a prank that required time, dedication and a keen eye for creepiness.

The prankster, Redditor BrettGuyBanans, cut out photos of the couple’s heads and plastered them all over the walls of their apartment and even in the shower. He piled the rest of the photos on the bed and strew them across the comforter like rose petals, only way more stalker-ish. Check out his handiwork below:

Such a thoughtful and terrifying surprise for the happy couple to come home to!

Invisible Hands: Narratives of Human Rights in the Global Economy

Invisible Hands: Narratives of Human Rights in the Global Economy


The men and women in “Invisible Hands” reveal the human rights abuses occurring behind the scenes of the global economy. These narrators — including phone manufacturers in China, copper miners in Zambia, garment workers in Bangladesh, and farmers around the world — reveal the secret history of the things we buy, including lives and communities devastated by low wages, environmental degradation, and political repression. Sweeping in scope and rich in detail, these stories capture the interconnectivity of all people struggling to support themselves and their families. Narrators include Kalpona, a leading Bangladeshi labor organizer who led her first strike at 15; Han, who, as a teenager, began assembling circuit boards for an international electronics company based in Seoul; Albert, a copper miner in Zambia who, during a wage protest, was shot by representatives of the Chinese-owned mining company that he worked for; and Sanjay, who grew up in the shadow of the Bhopal chemical disaster, one of the worst industrial accidents in history.
