Hodinkee Makes Annual Collectors Summit Free to Public

As a celebration of its 10th anniversary, Benjamin Clymer, the founder of Hodinkee, decided to forego charging attendees $ 3,000 to attend its Collectors Summit, which will take place in New York from Dec. 7-9.
“It’s a way to give back to our community,” said Clymer. “We decided that this is something we believe in and we figured once every 10 years we could swing it.”
The summit, which will be held inside a loft on Grand Street, will feature talks that can hold up to 150 people along with exclusive product drops, including a collaboration with Swatch.
Hodinkee has grown from a one-man-operated watch site to a 35-person company that produces a magazine, two podcasts and operates online retail. In addition to its limited-edition watch collaborations, which usually generate around $ 3 million in sales per year, it sells around 30,000 leather goods a year. Going forward, the company is targeting lifestyle products and has plans to collaborate on stereo equipment and camera accessories.
Next up is a physical retail space in New York, which Clymer said will be a hub for the watch world that’s open to the public. Clymer said the goal is to create a space that’s not too masculine and feels

Joe Bananas Makes Leap From Sydney to New York

Kim Bourke and Evan Sturrock are all in.
The co-owners of Joe Bananas, a 40-year-old Australian luxury men’s brand, have picked up stakes, moved halfway around the world to New York and opened their first store on Madison Avenue.
“When Americans dream big, they dream of making it in New York City,” Bourke said. “And when Australians dream big, they dream of making it in New York City.”
And so he and his business partner — and brother-in-law — took the leap of faith, leaving their home, and their two stores in Sydney, to open a 1,600-square-foot space at 943 Madison Avenue, between 74th and 75th streets, next door to The Met Breuer. The store had a soft opening last week and the grand opening is scheduled for Oct. 18.
A peek inside gives the first hint at what makes Joe Bananas different. Although the brand offers a wide range of products, it is best known for its colorful sport coats that are created from limited-edition, handcrafted silk textiles in patterns that are inspired by nature in Australia. It takes 250-300 days on average to weave one bolt of fabric that will in turn produce only six jackets that retail starting at $ 2,800 and go up

Cindy Crawford on What Makes an Image Iconic

FOREVER ICONIC: Swedish brand Acne Studios unveiled behind-the-scene shots of its latest campaign at the Galerie Edouard Escougnou on Friday evening.
Shot by Sam Abell, a photographer known for his work at “National Geographic,” the pictures showed supermodel Cindy Crawford working her magic against the stunning backdrop of Cadillac Ranch, a land art installation in Amarillo, Tex. The exhibition is open to the public until Oct. 2, with proceeds of the sales entirely going to WWF France.
The day of the shoot, the team set off into the desert at 5:30 a.m. to make the most of natural light. “It was freezing cold and pitch black,” recalled Crawford at the opening night of the exhibition. “And then the sun started to come up, and you see these silver cars that look like they are growing out of the earth.”
It was Abell’s first fashion shoot. He was astonished by Crawford’s ability to work the camera. “She would do this kind of dance: She started moving, then slowed down to hold a pose, and started up again,” Abell explained. “She was a true expert at being dynamic in the scene.”

First Lady Melania Trump Makes an Entrance at Blenheim Palace Wearing a Yellow J. Mendel Gown

First Lady Melania Trump made a dramatic entrance wearing a pale yellow J. Mendel gown at tonight’s black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace.
The evening host British Prime Minister Theresa May also appeared to take the dress code seriously, wearing a sleeveless red gown with a noticeably high slit. Her husband, Philip, like President Trump, kept things basic in a traditional tuxedo.
A different version of FLOTUS’ pleated dress was available in J. Mendel’s Madison Avenue store this spring in another shade. At the request of the First Lady’s stylist Herve Pierre, the label’s designer Gilles Mendel created one especially for tonight’s dinner at the country estate that was Winston Churchill’s birthplace. The choice of pale yellow, a favorite color of Queen Elizabeth II, was intentional and was meant to “pay homage” to HRH, according to Pierre.
The Trumps, joined by the Mays, ascended the red-carpeted steps of Blenheim Palace to two-folded fanfare — protests outside the palace and a military ceremony featuring a performance of the “Liberty Fanfare” by bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards. A three-course meal will be served to guests, who include a number of prominent British business leaders. After the dinner, the Trumps will travel to the U.S.

Prince Louis Makes First Public Appearance Since His Birth, Surrounded by Royal Family

RITE OF PASSAGE: Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was baptized on Monday at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace.
The chapel holds tremendous significance for the royal family: Louis’ elder brother Prince George was also christened there, and the chapel was where the late Princess Diana’s body was laid before her funeral.
Members of the royal family congregated at the private ceremony on Monday afternoon including siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not in attendance.

Calix by Massimo Palmiero Makes Debut in New York at Guggeheim

JEWELS IN THE ROUND: While some designers prefer to edge into New York to see what business they might reap, Massimo Palmiero dove right in, showcasing his jewels Wednesday night at the Guggenheim Museum.
Eleven dark-haired models in sleeveless black dresses and long satin gloves helped show off his Calix one-of-a-kind jewelry. Entwined around a black circular banquette in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda, their circular display mirrored the building’s iconic skylight 90 feet above. While guests like Gabby Karan and Gianpaolo De Felice circulated, the company’s namesake spoke of how spherical designs have been integral to his work for years.
Admiring the Guggenheim’s winding path, Palmiero said, “I like the architecture and I like this design. I have been doing this spiral design for more than 15 years [leafing through a book of his work to illustrate that point.] The shape is something you see in my work. But everything that I am showing is new. Everything here tonight is one-of-a-kind pieces.”
Not interested in opening stores or opening retail accounts, the Italy-based Palmiero hosted a cocktail party to attract new clients. The fact that the Italian actress Monica Bellucci, a longtime client, was recently photographed in a magazine wearing Calix jewels

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: “Call things by their name.” “Take things in hand.” “Makeup your weaknesses (never your emotions).” So read some of the resolutions outlined by Chanel’s new year’s fragrance and beauty campaign, titled “En 2018 Osez” (or “In 2018 Dare”), which is set to run in the Paris metro system between Dec. 19 and 25.
Each written message is paired with a product: “Stop at red,” features a photo of a Rouge Allure lipstick, for instance. “Make a statement with the most care” is shown with a jar of Sublimage cream, and “Long live love and water” is pictured with the No.5 L’Eau fragrance.
The institutional advertisements are meant to suggest that true independence, freedom and success come only after taking full control of one’s own life, as Gabrielle Chanel did, according to Thomas du Pré de Saint Maur, director of creative resources at Chanel Perfumes Beauty and Watches Jewelry.
Chanel, who famously loved to be where she was unexpected, no doubt would have given the nod to the campaign’s lofty-yet-underground nature.

Mich. Parents Allegedly Refused Medical Treatment for Newborn Who Died: ‘God Makes No Mistakes’

A Michigan couple is charged with involuntary manslaughter after allegedly refusing the advice of a midwife that they seek medical treatment for their newborn daughter, who later died, PEOPLE confirms.

Joshua Barry Piland, 36, and his 30-year-old wife, Rachel Joy Piland, were charged on Sept. 20, more than six months after the Feb. 9 death of their daughter, Abigail, who was found dead at their home in Lansing, Michigan.

According to police testimony in court last week, the couple’s midwife had warned Rachel about the girl’s health the day after she was born and recommended Rachel seek medical attention, the Lansing State Journal reports.

“Rachel declined to seek any medical treatment for Abigail, stating, ‘God makes no mistakes,’ ” Lansing police detective Peter Scaccia testified, according to the State Journal. “She indicated to the midwife that the baby was fine.”

According to Scaccia, Rachel then canceled a follow-up appointment with the midwife.

Two days later, Abigail died from unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia and kernicterus, conditions associated with jaundice, the State Journal reports.

Scaccia testified that the baby would have most likely survived had she received prompt treatment.

Rachel’s mother had noticed that the baby was coughing up blood and her color was off, the State Journal reports. But, Scaccia testified, Rachel “went to listen to sermons” after she told her mother about the midwife’s concerns.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Rachel’s mother urged her daughter to call the police after she saw blood coming from Aibigal’s nose, but Rachel allegedly refused, Scaccia said.

Later that morning, the baby was found dead in her bouncy seat and Joshua allegedly attempted mouth-to-mouth resuscitation but had no success.

Joshua allegedly did not want to try CPR on his daughter because he had only performed it on adults, according to the State Journal.

“They then brought Abigail upstairs to pray for her,” Scaccia testified. “Joshua continued to massage Abigail, attempting to get her good air. Both Josh and reached out to friends and fellow church members to come to their home and pray for Abigail’s resurrection but never called the police.”

Police learned of the death after Rachel’s brother contacted them from California.

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

At the scene, police “went upstairs and found a baby that had passed away and three other people praying for it,” Scaccia testified.

Neither Joshua nor Rachel has entered a plea. At a hearing last week, Rachel requested a court-appointed attorney but has not yet received one. Joshua has not retained an attorney.

The couple — who are allegedly involved with Faith Tech Ministries, a non-denominational Christian religious group with beliefs that include a “strong message in the area of divine healing” — was released from jail after posting $ 75,000 bond.

Their next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 5.

Messages left with the Pilands as well as with Faith Tech Ministries, Lansing police and the district attorney’s office were not immediately returned on Friday.

Lauren Bushnell Makes It Official with New Boyfriend 3 Months After Split from Ben Higgins

Lauren Bushnell has officially moved on.

The former Bachelor star shared a photo of herself with new boyfriend Devin Antin on Saturday with the caption, “Dibs” — making their relationship Instagram official.

The pair appeared happy while holding their arms around each other, with Bushnell wearing a long, flowing red dress and Antin looking dapper in a blue suit.

Bushnell, 27, also posted a cute moment between the two on her Instagram story, smiling at the camera before leaning over to Antin, 28, for a kiss.

The Sparkle in Her Eye blogger split from previous boyfriend and The Bachelor star Ben Higgins in May giving an exclusive statement to PEOPLE about their separation.

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways,” the statement read. “We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.”

Bushnell first introduced Antin to her followers on Instagram in early August while the two were on vacation. She made the intro in her Instagram Stories with a heartfelt quote — followed by a sweet picture of Antin holding her hand, which she captioned, “OK CUTIE.”

Dark Tower: What Makes Roland Deschain Special

Fans of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series have only a short wait until the long-gestating feature film adaptation finally hits theaters. If you’ve been following Roland Deschain’s adventures through all seven (okay, eight) books, you already know why he’s the greatest gunslinger ever. But if you’re still not sure what makes this hero such an unstoppable force in the fight against Walter O’Dim (AKA the Man in Black), we’ve got you covered.

Read on for 12 ways Roland stands out in any crowd. From his unmatched skill with firearms to his regal lineage and impressive proficiency in leatherworking (seriously), Roland truly breaks the mold. But be warned: This slideshow contains tons of spoilers from the books (and possibly the movie, depending on how closely it tracks with the books).

Why The Bachelorette Still Makes Chris Harrison ‘Cry Like a Baby’

 

Chris Harrison has watched people fall in and out of love on television for 15 years, but the emotional journey of watching former Bachelors and Bachelorettes find the one still gets to him — especially Rachel Lindsay‘s journey.

“I host so many shows, but this show touches me,” the longtime ABC host told PEOPLE at The Bachelorette: Men Tell All taping. “That’s why I come back and do it, because I care about these people.”

Adds Harrison, 46: “Rachel and I went through this journey together. You can’t be this disengaged robot. When you’re going through it, I’m sitting across from this woman who’s bawling and putting her heart out, how do you not cry? I think being a dad myself, I just picture my daughter going through this someday. I just try and be the right person for them and support them. It’s a weird thing as a host. You’re not a typical host. I wear a lot of hats.”

 

Lindsay is finally down to her three reaming suitors — Bryan Abasolo, Peter Kraus and Eric Bigger — but, getting there wasn’t easy.

After an emotional date in Dean Unglert’s hometown of Aspen, Colorado, Lindsay made the difficult decision to part ways with the 25-year-old.

“I cried on the entire flight to Dallas, and I cried all day leading up to it,” Lindsay wrote in her exclusive PEOPLE blog.  “I didn’t want to make a decision, I wanted to run and just go home and never have to break another heart again. But when my tears dried I realized that, while I do feel a love for Dean, I’m just not sure he’s in a place in his life where he’s ready to settle down and start a family in the near future.”

And Harrison, who has been right by Lindsay’s side throughout this process, knows a little something about comforting.

The host, who is father to son, Joshua, and daughter, Taylor, credits his ability to empathize with the Bachelorette to his experiences as a father.

“When I think of my daughter, when I come home and she runs and jumps in my arms, I cry like a baby,” he said. “I never cry. Probably the first 30 years in my life, I’ve never cried. All of a sudden you have a son and things change. But when you have a daughter, I know it’s a double standard and it even may be a little sexist, but it’s just different. They just get to you. They crush you in ways you never thought you’d be crushed.”

The Bachelorette airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Working Mom Makes Awesome Edits To Daughter’s Sexist Homework

After noticing a problematic narrative in her 6-year-old daughter’s homework, one working mom decided to fix it. 

On May 23, Lynne Polvino posted side-by-side photos of her daughter Hazel’s fill-in-the-blank homework assignment, titled “Back to Work,” next to her edited version of the worksheet on Facebook

“Back to Work” prompts students to choose words from lists of three to fill in a story about a little girl named Lisa. 

“Lisa was not happy. Her mother was back at work,” the story begins. The narrative explains the the little girl had a terrible morning at home and day at school because her mom went back to work after staying at home with her.  

“Lisa had to get to school on time. Her father had to get to work on time. And now, her mother was in a rush, too,” the narrative reads. 

Due to the change in routine, Lisa’s dad had to make breakfast, which was “not too good.” At the end of the story, however, Lisa “feels fine” because her mom’s job allows her to leave early and greet her at home after school. 

Polvino lives in Queens, New York and works at publishing house in Manhattan. As a working mom, she was struck by the story in the homework assignment.

“It just pushed so many buttons for me, and with each sentence it managed to get worse!” Polvino told Today. “My shock and dismay quickly turned to outrage. I mean, what decade are we in, anyway? In this day and age, we’re going to tell kids that mothers working outside the home makes their children and families unhappy? That fathers don’t normally do things like cook and wash the dishes?”

Upset by the messages in the story, Polvino decided to rewrite it to more accurately reflect the kind of life she wants for her children. In the updated version, Lisa’s mother returns to work after “nearly a year of paid maternity leave” and the little girl feels happy.

“The morning was wonderful,” Polvino wrote. “Lisa had to get to school on time. Her mother had to get to work on time. Her father was home on his paid paternity leave, caring for Lisa’s younger brother and contributing equally to the running of the household. No one was in a rush because Dad had things firmly under control.”

After Lisa’s dad cooked a “very good” breakfast, she helped wash the dishes and went to school, where she “enjoyed the play-based learning and small student-to-teacher ratio in her state-of-the-art public school classroom.” After spending the afternoon at a “free federally-funded after school enrichment program” that offers Lego robotics and painting, Lisa returned home feeling good about all of her opportunities in life and quality time with her family.

Polvino’s Facebook post has been shared nearly 1,300 times and received more than 2,600 likes. At the request of friends, she made the post public, and it received more attention when Today contributor Alison Slater Tate wrote about it for the site.

In a follow-up comment on her Facebook post, Polvino clarified that her rewrite was meant as social commentary and not as a criticism of Hazel’s teacher or school. 

“As we all know, NYC public schools face many challenges, including lack of adequate funding for up-to-date classroom materials, and I admire and appreciate all the good work the teachers and administrators do,” she wrote.

Though the mom did not send the the updated assignment to school with Hazel, she did email her teacher to share her concerns about the material.

On May 28, Polvino shared an update after hearing back from her daughter’s teacher. She said the teacher thanked her for bringing the issue to her attention, expressed her agreement and promised to review future worksheets more carefully before sending them home. 

“She also apologized for the oversight and confirmed that it must have come from an out-of-date workbook,” wrote Polvino, adding that she believes public schools need more adequate funding for newer materials and smaller class sizes so that teachers can focus on educating children rather than “weeding out offensive decades-old worksheets.”

She concluded her update with a a shoutout to the working mothers who came before her. 

Wrote Polvino, “A huge thank you and much respect to all the working moms of past generations who had to deal with this type of crap on a regular basis!”

Wannabe Merman Makes A Big Splash On Beaches Of Rio De Janeiro

When Rio de Janeiro resident Davi Moreira goes to Brazil’s famous Ipanema beach, he always has a splashingly good time.

The 22-year-old is a wannabe merman who loves resting on the rocks by the sea as he wears one of five colorful mermaid tails.

“It’s a lifestyle, a way of expressing my love and respect for the sea and this encounter between two worlds. When I’m in the water I feel like another person,” he told Agence France-Presse as he leisured on rocks with his handmade tail glittering in the sun. 

Moreira takes his merman passion very “sea-riously.” Besides sporting a “Little Mermaid” tattoo on his body, his home is chock-full of Ariel-themed memorabilia including cups, shirts, dolls and even a bedcover featuring the red-headed mermaid.

Merman Moreira attracts waves of attention from fellow mermaid “afish-cianados,” but also some insults from a few crabs.

“People laugh at me because I am different, but I laugh back because they are all the same,” he said. “I’m not trying to escape reality. I know perfectly well how to deal with adult life. But this makes me happy and I’m not causing anyone any harm.”

Moreira’s lifestyle choice gets approval from at least one slightly envious local, an elderly woman in the video above.

“I think that if I would have had a fancy dress like that when I was a child, it would have been a dream,” she said.

To mark the launch the model joined longtime friend and musician Jesse Jo Stark and her mother Laurie, Chrome Hearts’ co-owner, at the British department store on Oxford Street.
“This is such a beautiful space and the [accessories department] is brand new, it’s a new entrance to the store so it’s perfect, not only for my collection, but for Chrome Hearts as a whole.

James Gunn Randomly Makes Huge ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3’ Announcement

When it comes to “Guardians of the Galaxy,” expect a lot Ga-more-a.

OK, admittedly, that’s not the greatest pun, but we’ll have plenty of time to work on them, since James Gunn just announced he will return for a third “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie.

That means, barring something catastrophic happening in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord, Vin Diesel’s Groot, and the rest of the crew are likely coming back! 

Gunn made the announcement on Facebook Monday, saying he wanted to share the news with the fans, aka the “most important people in the Guardiansverse.”

“Yes, I’m returning to write and direct ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,’” he wrote.

Gunn credits his relationships with Marvel and Disney as big factors in his decision to return, saying, “I can’t fricking wait to get started.”

Even though “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” isn’t out until May 5, Gunn teased the newly announced movie, revealing that the third “Guardians” would come after “Avengers: Infinity War” and “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy,” helping to “catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” 

See Gunn’s full post below. It appears the galaxy will be in good hands for many years to come.

Janet Jackson Makes Rare Appearance After Split from Wissam Al Mana

Two days after multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana are ending their marriage, the singer was spotted publicly for the first time running errands in London.

“Janet was out on her own at a shop on King’s Road,” says a source about the quick outing on Monday. “It’s really unusual to see her out of the house because she hardly seems to venture out at all.”

Since delivering the couple’s baby boy, Eissa, in January, the star has largely remained holed up at home. “Apart from a few people, she hasn’t really had any visitors,” says the source.

Al Mana, 42, was spotted leaving the former couple’s home Tuesday afternoon. “After the baby was born, Wissam was at the house all the time, but in the past month, he’s barely been there at all,” adds the source.

A Jackson family insider previously told PEOPLE the entertainer, 50, and her billionaire businessman husband separated shortly after welcoming their first child together.

“They come from very different worlds,” said the family insider. “The cultural differences between her and Wissam became even more obvious after the baby was born.”

At the Grammy Awards in February, Perry landed herself in hot water for joking about shaving all her hair off. While explaining the need for a break from music to Ryan Seacrest, Perry seemingly took a shot at Britney Spears by saying, “And I haven’t shaved my head yet.”

Martha Stewart’s New Wine Service Makes Your Drinking Martha-Approved

Martha Stewart fans rejoice, because the lifestyle maven is finally entering the wine business. 

Stewart announced a new venture, which is basically a riff on a wine subscription club, on Wednesday. Called Martha Stewart Wine Co., patrons who sign up will receive carefully chosen wines from Stewart and her crew of sommeliers and experts.

According to a press release, the wine will mainly come from a few regions (Bordeaux, Tuscany and coastal California), though it must past Martha’s quality standards before getting shipped out.  

“I am excited to bring my passion for wine to wine lovers across the nation with Martha Stewart Wine Co.,” Martha Stewart said in the release. “Wine has played an important role in that part of my life focused on entertaining and teaching others how to entertain.” 

The service is surprisingly affordable. Customers can either get six bottles of wine every six weeks with the Half-Case Wine Club ($ 8.33/bottle with free shipping), or get 12 bottles every eight weeks with the Case Wine Club ($ 7.49/bottle with free shipping). Once you choose a club, customers can get either all-red or all-white shipments, or a mix of both. There are a few other options available for customers who would rather just shop Stewart’s favorite wines and or try the Discovery Half Case. 

Considering Martha is such an expert on basically all things boozy, we’re excited to see her picks. What other lifestyle expert can chug a 40 with Conan O’Brien and make the booziest eggnog in all the land?

L Catterton Makes ‘Significant’ Investment in Rhone Activewear

L Catterton, which was formed in 2016 as a partnership between Catterton, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Groupe Arnault, is extending its reach in the active arena with a “significant growth investment” in Rhone, a men’s activewear brand.
The size of the investment from L Catterton’s Growth Fund was not disclosed.
L Catterton is the largest consumer-focused private-equity firm in the world, with 17 offices across five continents. It has investments in Peloton, CorePower Yoga, Sweaty Betty, 2XU, Gant, Pepe Jeans, Sandro and Maje, Hackett and Emperor Watch and Jewellery, among others.
“Rhone represents a compelling opportunity to invest in a differentiated and on-trend concept within men’s activewear, a large and growing category,” said Jon Owsley, co-managing partner of L Catterton Growth Fund. “We seek companies in great trend areas with consumer appeal. Rhone is very well positioned to ride the wave of what’s happening in men’s apparel. It has all the technical aspects of fitness wear but designed with an eye for regular wear.”
He pointed to the company’s commuter pant as an example, saying that while a man may wear it to ride a bike to work, it looks good enough to keep on all day.

Welcome To The Bakery That Makes Margarita Cupcakes WITH Tequila

Los Angeles’ Viva Los Cupcakes is serving up margarita cupcakes so authentic, they come with two shots of tequila.

“There’s tequila in the batter, the frosting also has tequila in it. So I guess you can say it’s a double shot,” Karina Jimenez, the store’s owner and baker, told We are mitú.

The cupcake entrepreneur, who grew up in Tijuana, Mexico, is the subject of a recent video by the outlet, posted Wednesday. Jimenez left a desk job to create the colorful cupcakes inspired by Mexican flavors. 

In addition to the margarita flavor, Jimenez makes and sells fresas con crema cupcakes, conchita cupcakes, churro con cajeta cupcakes, tres leches cupcakes and more.

“My weirdest cupcake is our tamale with mole cupcake, which is actually our signature cupcake,” Jimenez said. “There’s no chicken in our mole, it’s dessert mole. It’s three kinds of chocolates and, of course, there’s a spicy kick.” 

In 2013, she told OC Weekly that her desk job involved “mind-numbing” reports and she now cherishes being able to do something different. 

“I love the creative process in the kitchen as much as I love interacting with people and watching them be surprised and enjoy something I have made,” she said.

And we’d love to eat these cupcakes. Yum.

Zara Larsson On Trump: ‘I’m Not Even American And It All Just Makes Me So Tired’

Zara Larsson’s week is going so good.

The pop star’s her first internationally released album, coincidentally also titled “So Good,” dropped on Friday and has already scored killer reviews, as well as the honor of being the most streamed debut album by a female artist on Spotify with over 1.3 billion streams.

The outspoken Swedish singer joined The Huffington Post Monday to chat about making her new album and how feminism has impacted her work and life, and to offer her thoughts on Donald Trump being president.

“I’m not American, so I can’t speak for the American people but I do have opinions,” Larsson said. “Looking at Trump, every day there’s a new thing that he did and new things that he said and tweeted … and it all just makes me so tired. I’m not even American and it makes me so tired to watch this … It’s just so much.” 

She also blitzed her way through a lightning round, with questions ranging from “alcohol or weed?” to her favorite body part on a man and a woman to which female superstar’s concert she’d attend if she found herself with a free night to burn in Las Vegas.

Joe Biden Makes First Public Appearance Since His Son and Daughter-in-Law’s Relationship News

Former Vice President Joe Biden stepped out in Austin, Texas, on Sunday to speak at the city’s famed SXSW festival about his Cancer Moonshot initiative.

During his appearance, Biden revealed that Cancer Moonshot — which aims to accelerate cancer research and make more therapies available to patients — began during an “off-hand comment” that he made following the 2015 death of his son Beau, who died from brain cancer.

“We want to spare what our family and what so many other families go through,” Biden said.

Since leaving the White House, Biden has kept a relatively low-profile (and is taking a well-deserved break), making only a few public appearances, including stepping out to support his daughter Ashley Biden’s debut of her clothing line last month.

As Biden himself has stepped back from the spotlight, members of his family have been thrust into it. Earlier this month, Hallie Biden, the widow of Biden’s son Beau, and Beau’s brother, Hunter Biden, confirmed that they were dating. Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, offered a statement of support to the couple at the time.

FROM COINAGE: This Is How Much It Would Cost to Paint the White House (And More Crazy Facts)

“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”

Hunter’s divorce proceedings from his estranged wife, Kathleen, have also made headlines. In the original February filing, Kathleen accused Hunter of spending the family’s money on prostitutes, drugs, alcohol and strip clubs.

Last week, they filed a consent motion to move forward with the divorce more amicably.

The Paris concept store on Monday unveiled two window displays devoted to the French fashion house, signaling a reconciliation: Saint Laurent had severed ties with the retailer in 2013 after former creative director Hedi Slimane objected to Colette carrying parody T-shirts with the logo “Ain’t Laurent Without Yves.”
Sarah Andelman, Colette’s creative director, purchasing manager and the daughter of store founder Colette Rousseau, said discussions with Saint Laurent resumed after Anthony Vaccarello was named creative director of the brand last year. Colette previously carried Vaccarello’s eponymous line, which he shuttered when he joined Saint Laurent.
“We have worked with Anthony since his first collection. It was obvious that we would be able to work together again,” Andelman told WWD. “As soon as Anthony’s nomination was announced, we met and we started planning the beautiful windows we have right now.”
Vaccarello unveiled the collaboration on his Instagram account.

The windows will remain on show until March 1, the day after Vaccarello parades his fall collection for Saint Laurent. Andelman noted this was exceptional, since the store usually switches its window displays on Sundays.
The display consists of an assemblage of video screens

Couple Makes Fake Movie Poster To Announce Pregnancy News

When Brittney Dufrene and Ryan Cannon learned they were expecting their first child, they decided to announce the news in a creative way.

“I wanted something a little different, something cute, yet funny, to capture our personalities,” Dufrene told The Huffington Post. “So, I began to search on Pinterest for some ideas; a few really caught my eye.” 

The parents-to-be put together a fake movie poster featuring a positive pregnancy test, a copy of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” and lots of snacks for those infamous cravings.

Dufrene posted the image on Facebook and sent it to the uplifting “Love What Matters” page. “With all the crazy stuff going on in the world, I thought maybe this post would bring smiles to people’s faces,” she said. The image received over 11,000 likes on Love What Matters

Though the mom-to-be drew inspiration from Pinterest, she wanted to add some personalized flair to her announcement. She decided to include a king cake in the shot. “We are from Louisiana, and Mardi Gras season is in full effect ― so having King Cake this time of year is a must!” Dufrene explained.

The online attention has been a pleasant surprise for the couple. “At first I did not think this many people would see the picture, but, it is exciting to see that our announcement has gotten as far as it has,” Dufrene said.

“It is also very uplifting to see all the positive reactions and smiles it has brought to many,” she added. “I am just happy to see some positive news spread across the media.”

WATCH: Goat Makes 7-Eleven Pit Stop, Tastes the Rainbow of Skittles

Skittles have long been a favorite candy amongst humans, but recently a few other animal species have been caught enjoying the colorful, hard-shelled fruity confection.

First it was a herd of cows in Wisconsin, and then we caught wind of a goat in Oregon gaining notoriety on Facebook for snagging a packet and “tasting the rainbow” at a 7-Eleven in Tigard, just outside of Portland.

According to Katelyn Lund, a witness who filmed the incident and posted it to Facebook on Jan. 12, the white goat was on a mission.

“When I opened the doors she was pretty adamant about going in and went past me,” Lund told OregonLive. “Honestly I didn’t know how to handle a goat so I just let her.”

Fair enough. (Incidentally, the video now has more than 4 million views.)

Lund continued, stating that “everyone was hella nonchalant about her, and no one said anything to her.”

No word on whether the goat paid for the package of Skittles, but Lund says she later found out its owner was there, too, and the duo are frequent customers.

Now, if only we could set up an introduction between this goat, a scurry of candy thief Toronto squirrels and a Hollywood casting agent, the next installment of the Ocean’s movies could marry girl power with adorable animals.

The Skittles tie-in markets itself, obviously. Get on it, Clooney and Soderbergh!

One where he has already achieved inadvertent success is political music, with songs against his presidency quickly proliferating. Trump's idiosyncratic campaign, in which he denounced Mexican immigrants, Muslims and other minorities, set off a deluge of protest songs and a new round has emerged as he was sworn in Friday as the 45th president of the United States.

Keane Singer Tom Chaplin Makes Triumphant Solo Debut in America

Releasing an album no longer guarantees success in an industry where platinum-selling singers face the same pressures as fledgling artists. Yet, Keane frontman Tom Chaplin proved that talent and heart still matter as much as the numbers do when he kicked off a 15-date North American tour in Atlanta this weekend to celebrate his solo debut, The Wave. In a triumphant return to the U.S. after more than four years away, Chaplin raised the roof with a dozen new songs that showcased his stellar vocal abilities – and also shared stories about his recovery from drug addiction.

Chaplin’s 90-minute set at the Buckhead Theatre included favorites “Everybody’s Changing” and “Bend and Break” from Keane’s 2004 debut, Hopes and Fears, as well as the current single, “Still Waiting.” The Wave’s “Hardened Heart” and “Bring the Rain” (co-written by Chaplin and Max McElligott ) recalled the joyous rave-ups for which Keane is best known, while “The River” (penned with Aqualung) suggested a clearer pop direction. Chaplin’s backing band did not pretend to be a replacement for Keane, but instead found its own earthier path as drummer Sebastian Sternberg and multi-instrumentalists Tobie Tripp, Beau Holland, and Rose Langley brought verve to the arrangements with strings and harmonies.

The intimate audience of 400 fans never relented in its cheering, except to make room for two quiet confession: “Solid Gold,” in which Chaplin dedicated to his ‘long suffering’ wife for sticking with him during years of substance abuse relapse, and “Worthless Words,” with a delicate falsetto bridge and apologetic refrain. Deep into the set, when he sang “Quicksand” in honor of his toddler daughter, Chaplin bounced with nervous excitement as he promised to pick her up when dreams ‘fall through, screw you, and batter you to black and blue.’ In that moment, it was impossible not to root for a permanently happy ending to the singer’s much-publicized struggles.

In our pre-show interview at a nearby café, Chaplin says making The Wave was less about running away from his former bandmates (including formidable tunesmith Tim Rice-Oxley) and more about having the space to dig into something heavier: the reasons why he kept putting his body on the line for the false elation of a chemical high.

“Being a drug addict is horrible and exhausting,” he says. “It can lead you to death, but it forced me into a corner. All my energy towards this album started at my lowest point. I wanted to get it all down [on record] and [by the middle of 2015], I was on a roll.”

Chaplin says The Wave‘s themes drew upon his psychoanalysis sessions and conversations with his wife over the past few years. The raw demo vocal on “Bound Together” feels like a 21st century take on The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood;” the satisfying mantra of “Cheating Death” promises ‘just keep believing/you’ve got the strength to go on;’ and “Hardened Heart” moves from desperation into self-forgiveness as Chaplin sings of being ‘stuck on a road of sadness with nowhere to go’ but keeps insisting, ‘it’s a beautiful life.’

“Those words come from a very dark place, knowing you’ve hurt everyone that’s close to you,” he says. “A lot of people have commented online about the song and said that it could have been written about their depression. For me, the depression was self-induced.”

Chaplin is not alone in his use of music as a mechanism for recovery; artists in many genres have made albums about their journeys to sobriety – from Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt to Keith Urban and Eminem, some of whom went on to have the biggest hits of their careers after getting clean. Like others who have pursued projects outside of the bands that made them famous, Chaplin says the “door is open” for future possibilities with or without Keane. During our interview, he mentions how much fun he’s had playing around with covers of Sia and Bruno Mars songs and writing unexpectedly sturdy ballads with songwriters who’ve made hits for pop stars like Cher and Enrique Iglesias. Although The Wave is rooted in the same pop-rock style that helped “Somewhere Only We Know” break through on mainstream radio when Keane embarked on its first U.S. tour more than a decade ago, Chaplin is firmly on a path to a solo career, if he chooses to stay the course.

“It was easy for me to slip into the life of the charming, jocular guy in Keane, but I wasn’t facing my truth,” he says. “The only way I could get well was to talk, and to be open and vulnerable for the for first time in my life. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. I could actually breathe again.”

Maid Of Honor Makes Wedding Unforgettable (But Not In A Good Way)

Brian and Jennifer Butler will never forget their wedding day ― though they’d probably like to.

That because Amanda Willis, Jennifer’s Maid of Honor, took away the focus from the bride after getting arrested for numerous charges including larceny, battery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and violation of probation.

The Butlers, of Charlotte County, Florida, say that Willis behaved herself during their wedding. It was during the cake ceremony and first dance that she allegedly turned into a Maid of Dishonor.

The bride told WBBH TV that she saw Willis drink an entire bottle of Fireball by herself.

“She was drunk within 20 minutes to half an hour,” Jennifer Butler told the station.

It was then that this “Bridesmaidzilla” allegedly set a standard that will be hard for future inappropriate Wedding Party members to top.

First, Willis allegedly took the groom’s car keys from his pocket and attempted to drive away.

Willis almost ran him over while driving away, according to the arrest affidavit obtained by The Huffington Post. She drove towards the parking lot while the groom was hanging out the passenger side door. He managed to stop the car by grabbing the emergency brake.

Other guests wrestled Willis out of the car and back into the reception. 

“She went back inside…grabbed up the big bottle of Captain Morgan and just guzzled it,” Jennifer Butler told WBBH TV.

Best man Robert Templeton told police he tried to calm down Willis, but she struck him in the head.

Deputies were called to the scene and took Willis into custody. On the way to the Charlotte County Jail, Willis allegedly banged her head against the divider in the squad car, according to the police report.

When the squad car arrived at the jail. police said Willis claimed to be having an asthma attack and lay down in the back of the car, shaking as if she were having a seizure.

She was then taken to a local hospital where she allegedly exposed herself to deputies and assaulted two EMTs, one of whom was over 65. Oh, and she kicked over a bedpan, according to the report.

Willis was taken to the Charlotte County Jail after being charged with grand theft of an auto, two counts of battery on an officer or firefighter, battery on a person 65 years or older, intentional battery, petit larceny in the first degree and violation of parole.

She remains behind bars in lieu of $ 25,000 bail.

Oh, in case you’re wondering, Jennifer Butler said she no longer considers Willis to be her friend, according to WBBH TV.

Riveted: The Science of Why Jokes Make Us Laugh, Movies Make Us Cry, and Religion Makes Us Feel One with the Universe

Riveted: The Science of Why Jokes Make Us Laugh, Movies Make Us Cry, and Religion Makes Us Feel One with the Universe


Why do some things pass under the radar of our attention, but other things capture our interest? Why do some religions catch on and others fade away? What makes a story, a movie, or a book riveting? Why do some people keep watching the news even though it makes them anxious?The past 20 years have seen a remarkable flourishing of scientific research into exactly these kinds of questions. Professor Jim Davies’ fascinating and highly accessible book, Riveted, reveals the evolutionary underpinnings of why we find things compelling, from art to religion and from sports to superstition. Compelling things fit our minds like keys in the ignition, turning us on and keeping us running, and yet we are often unaware of what makes these “keys” fit. What we like and don’t like is almost always determined by subconscious forces, and when we try to consciously predict our own preferences we’re often wrong. In one study of speed dating, people were asked what kinds of partners they found attractive. When the results came back, the participants’ answers before the exercise had no correlation with who they actually found attractive in person! We are beginning to understand just how much the brain makes our decisions for us: we are rewarded with a rush of pleasure when we detect patterns, as the brain thinks we’ve discovered something significant; the mind urges us to linger on the news channel or rubberneck an accident in case it might pick up important survival information; it even pushes us to pick up People magazine in order to find out about changes in the social structure. Drawing on work from philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, psychology, economics, computer science, and biology, Davies offers a comprehensive explanation to show that in spite of the differences between the many things that we find compelling, they have similar effects on our minds and brains.

Kim Kardashian Makes Rare Appearance To Give Friend’s Baby Boys A ‘First Kiss’

These days, it takes a very special occasion for Kim Kardashian to leave her home and join the world of social media.

But being the doting friend she is, the reality star has come out of her self-imposed seclusion to meet the newborn twins of her good friend and makeup artist, Joyce Bonelli.

Kardashian made a visit to the hospital where Bonelli was staying on Friday to give the baby boys their “first kiss” and pose for a series of black-and-white photos, which Bonelli compiled into an adorable Instagram video. 

“ The Boys ‘First Kiss’ From Auntie KiKi @kimkardashian WELOVEYEEWW❤ #BonelliTavernitiTwins #ILOVEMYFAMILY ,” the make-up artist to the stars wrote. 

|| The Boys 'First Kiss' From Auntie KiKi @kimkardashian WELOVEYEEWW❤ #BonelliTavernitiTwins #ILOVEMYFAMILY

A video posted by jOYCEBONELLi™ (@joycebonelli) on

Kardashian has slowly begun to step back into the public eye since she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment in October. Just this week, she made an appearance at the family’s annual Christmas party, posing for the camera in her sisters’ many Snapchats and Instagram photos throughout the night. 

A few days later, husband Kanye West took to Twitter to share the family’s holiday portrait with children North and Saint, which has put divorce rumors surrounding the couple to rest, for now at least. 

Let’s just hope 2017 is a bit kinder to the Kardashian family.

Lego Donald Trump Makes Christmas Anything But Great Again

This Lego Donald Trump will permanently be on the naughty list.

The plastic version of the president-elect seizes control of the North Pole just two days after his inauguration, in Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles’ latest stop-motion animated video.

And as Santa Claus, he immediately sets to work in reshaping the holidays to be exactly how he wants them ― after a little help from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

What follows is a perfect parody referencing some of Trump’s most controversial moments of the past year.

There are references to Trump’s spat with the cast of the “Hamilton” musical and his ejection of a baby from a campaign rally.

The clever clip also mentions Trump’s disgusting comments about women.

“When you’re Santa, you can do whatever. Grab ’em by the antlers,” says “Santa” Trump.

He even calls “for a total ban on Gingerbread men,” in reference to his campaign vow to bar Muslims from entering the U.S.

Check out the full video above.

A Ridiculous ‘Walking Dead’ Morse Code Theory Makes Too Much Sense

Even in the world of “The Walking Dead,” you gotta have a code. Who would’ve thought that code would be so literal?

Sunday’s episode of the show featured Negan and his goon squad coming to Alexandria to terrorize the residents and take half their stuff. Negan also brought Daryl, and Daryl apparently brought his ninja skills. That’s the theory anyway.

While watching the episode, some fans noticed how Daryl was acting super weird. Sure, he was just tortured for days and forced to listen to “Easy Street” on repeat, but fans think this was something more. Daryl seemed to be blinking a lot when Rick looked over at him. The theory now is that these blinks were Morse code.

OK. Whoa. Wait. C’mon. This is hogwash, right? 

Remember: Negan almost immediately forbid Rick from speaking to Daryl. This would obviously be a way around that. There’s something else that’s even more convincing, however. Redditor radda explains:

What the what!?

Yup. A Morse code chart was prominently shown on the wall earlier in the episode. 

Peep this, peeps:

And that has us feeling like: 

If Daryl is sending Morse code, and that’s still a big if, Comicbook.com and various Redditors say it could be decoded as, “I EAST.”

Other guesses include “6 miles East,” “East of Hilltop,” or possibly a highway such as “I-30 East.” Whatever the actual translation, it would all mean one thing:

Daryl is telling Rick the location of Negan’s headquarters.

Was Daryl just tortured into weird head nods and blinks? Perhaps he still hears “Easy Street” in his head and he’s just bopping along. (That’s some catchy stuff after all.) Or maybe, just maybe, Rick now knows the location of Negan and the Saviors. Maybe he’ll follow through on his promise. 

“The Walking Dead” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

When Dyson makes a hair dryer, it’s going to be quiet, powerful, and pricey

In a few months, the hum of hair dryers at your local salon might get a little lower if Dyson has its way. From vacuums to fans to hand dryers, Dyson certainly likes to focus on suction and airflow. It’s not really a surprise, then, that its first beauty product is a very pricey hair dryer. The company unveiled its $ 399 Dyson Supersonic hair dryer today. Gray and purple, the blow dryer looks Dyson-made and resembles a handheld showe rhead or microphone more than a traditional hair-styling tool. It took Dyson four years and $ 71 million to develop the device, which includes its new V9 digital motor. In 2013, patents revealed the company was working on a “silent” hair dryer. While it’s not calling the Supersonic hair dryer soundless, Dyson does say the device’s pathway cuts down on agitation and its 13 motor impeller blades emit a tone that’s inaudible to the human ear.Related: Dyson is looking beyond vacuum cleaners to developing electric cars It’s less noisy, but it also won’t scorch your hair, Dyson promises. The device contains a thermistor, which is a resistor that measures the temperature 20 times per second, so the microprocessor can adjust the amount of heat delivered, depending on which of the four settings you select. Air is delivered in a high-pressure stream at a 20-degree angle and there are three different strength settings. There’s also a setting to deliver a blast of cold air when hair is dry. The three attachments — a concentrator for a “blade” of air, smoothing nozzle for a wider airflow, and diffuser for defrizzing — snap on magnetically to the hair dryer. Ultimately, the 1.82-pound Supersonic solves four problems often encountered with traditional hair dryers, company founder James Dyson said it a statement: They’re heavy, inefficient, loud, and damaging. The Dyson Supersonic doesn’t go on sale until this fall and will only be available through Dyson or Sephora. We’ll have to wait until then to see if the nearly $ 400 dryer does all it promises.

#ElectionPlotTwist Somehow Makes The 2016 Election Even Crazier

Where else could this presidential election go? Is it too extreme to think that one candidate might remove their head to reveal that an alien has been in control the whole time. That would be pretty shocking … BUT WOULD IT REALLY??? 

We started the hashtag #ElectionPlotTwist because we want to know what’s going to happen!

Has Bruce Willis been dead this whole time? Is it all a dream? Or are we in some kid’s snow globe???

Elizabeth Olsen’s Plunging Gown at the Captain America: Civil War Premiere Makes Chris Evans Literally Stop and Stare

Elizabeth Olsen is known for having her sisters’ (Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen) minimalist, refined style, so it’s not often she goes full-on Hollywood glam. But Tuesday she pulled out all the style stops at the European premiere of Captain America: Civil War in a sexy, keyhole-neckline dress that turned more than a few heads — including her co-star’s, Chris Evans.

What makes the otherwise covered-up (long-sleeve, floor-length) gown so sexy is the accentuated plunging neckline, waist-cinching ruched bodice and body-skimming fabric. It also shows cleavage from all angles.

Even Captain America himself couldn’t stop him self from staring.

Olsen returns as the Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) in the latest installment of the hit superhero franchise and in a behind-the-scenes clip from the film, she comments on what it feels like playing a good guy (in Avengers: Age of Ultron she took a villainous turn).

“What I like about Wanda is the idea of her being terrified of her own abilities, it’s really fun to play with,” she explains.

Plus, she loved working with such a huge, creative cast. “There’s been a few moments where you kind of look around and go, ‘Oh, I’m in good company. This is rad.’”

What do you think of her dress? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
