Bud Konheim, Nicole Miller’s Chief Executive Officer, Dies at 84 After Biking Fall

Nicole Miller’s longtime business partner Bud Konheim died Saturday, after injuries sustained from a bicycle accident in Connecticut.
Konheim, chief executive officer of Nicole Miller Inc, died at the age of 84 at Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Conn., Saturday. The cause of death was not immediately known, Miller said.
Konheim and Miller have been one of the fashion industry’s longest-standing power couples, having worked together for more than 40 years. “He always said, ‘I’ve never had a bad day.’ He loved life and he loved his job.” Miller said. “He just always had this positive attitude. He just loved what he did. He loved the business.”
The irrepressible straight talker Konheim was a big picture thinker who examined the fashion industry from a mile-high perspective. Rather than talk up his own company’s success or most recent news, Konheim was more inclined to first discuss at great length why old-school retail models and other aging business practices weren’t working. Rather than bemoan the state of things, Konheim would fire off a litany of possible solutions. An early adopter of technology for a variety of elements of sales and design, Konheim also championed a Made in New York label and marketing initiative in 1994, lobbying

Nicole McLaughlin Talks Sustainable Design, Life on Adidas’ Farm and the Permanence of Books

MISTAKEN IDENTITY: Three years into her consultancy with Reebok as a full-time graphic designer, Nicole McLaughlin personifies the Millennial spirit that sustainability doesn’t have to be boring.
Off the clock, the New Jersey creative repurposes vintage store and eBay finds into one-of-a-kind creations. The slides she made from a magenta JanSport backpack racked up nearly 22,000 likes a few weeks ago. And more recently a pair of pants salvaged from two Columbia Sportswear ski jackets were another winner with her followers. “I have two jobs and to be honest they influence each other,” McLaughlin said Tuesday.
Edging more toward concept designer status, she sees her role in both capacities as “how to reimagine something that exists.” The end result can be mules made from Wilson tennis balls, or an umbrella repurposed with The North Face puffer jackets. Nearing the end of a London-Paris-Amsterdam trip with Reebok, McLaughlin said she steers clear of reimagining products from Reebok competitors like Nike or Under Armour.
In New York at the end of last year for a three-month rotation at “The Farm,” the creative hub in Greenpoint run by Adidas, she worked with seven to 12 apparel, footwear, color and material designers from its Herzogenaurach, Germany, and

Nicole Miller Pre-Fall 2019

Nicole Miller featured her pre-fall collection on a character who embodied its mix of tough and tender — model and professional skydiver Alyona Subbotina.
“I had such a strong personality wear them. She worked into the story because I felt I always design for that strong girl who has the feminine soft side and the edge together,” Miller mused. Camouflage prints with tiny flowers were mixed with dark floral prints on multiple easy dresses, and most memorably on an oversize utility coat. One little black dress had bows sewn all over it. “If you’re a goody-two-shoe, you make it all bows, and if you’re a badass, you make it all knots or let it hang, but I showed it half and half for duality,” the designer explained.
Miller referred to her light-colored floral frocks as “the sweeter things in life,” and mixed in bomber jackets and half-leather, half-cotton denim pants to toughen them up.

Nicole Miller Tells Staff to Ditch the Plastics in the Office

NICOLE MILLER CLEANS HOUSE: In an effort to do her part to reduce plastic refuse, the New York designer has lowered the boom in-house on staffers to do a better job of recycling. She first made her case in the company’s internal newsletter about four weeks ago. By using refillable cups instead of throwaways, the 80-person company has reduced plastic trash by 100 percent in that time, Miller said.
But the designer is not new to recycling, having made various efforts through the years. Hangers and plastic bags are among the necessities that are used again and again. Filtered water was offered to the company’s 80 staffers years ago. Miller said, “I was very frustrated by the huge pile of plastic cups in the recycle bin every night. I got on everyone’s case about bringing their own coffee cups and cold drink cups. And the more I got into it the more issues there were.”
Miller has also used the newsletter to remind employees about using a refillable water bottle at the gym and having mesh bags at the ready for grocery store and other shopping. The Seventh Avenue office is eliminating plastic cups and bowls in favor of paper or glass

Nicole Miller Resort 2019

“I always feel like resort is such a confusing season and that’s how the collection is…it’s abstract art: jumbled up stripes, jumbled up prints, jumbled up textures,” noted Nicole Miller during the look book shoot of her resort collection. Miller tapped model, singer and blogger Natalie Lim Suarez for the collection of mismatched abstract prints with athletic touches. 
Categories of prints included graphic stripes of varying widths, an abstract painterly print and graphic textual “don’t grab” that were developed as drawings on silks and embroidered into white organza. The prints were rendered onto silky button ups as well. All together it was dizzying, but at times, the prints made for nice contrasts against each other. For instance, Miller’s “Don’t Grab” silk printed slip and sheer organza T-shirt made for an interesting contrast of wordplay and textures when layered together. Less jumbled standouts of the collection included an athletic-striped, double-faced, ribbed knit hoodie paired with a pleated skirt with asymmetrical hem. Both the athletic stripe and “Don’t Grab” print were ideas expanded upon from prior seasons’ details.

Nicole Miller Partners With RevelGlam for NYFW

RevelGlam, a new company that applies artificial intelligence and image recognition to fashion forecasting, has partnered with Nicole Miller for NYFW. The designer will pilot the fashion-tech company’s software: photos from the brand’s NYFW show will be used to predict the next wave of fashion trends.
RevelGlam is a “style-forecasting solution that helps designers, retailers and fashion industry professionals stay ahead of trends and gain an artificially intelligent edge over competition,” the company says. It was cofounded by Steve Eichner, veteran fashion and celebrity photographer, and Daniela Kirsch, a full-stack developer from Berlin.

“Our platform creates a new layer of value from celebrity and event photography, Eichner says. “With a smart analysis of today’s trendsetters, you can build the business of tomorrow.”

RevelGlam uses insights from celebrity sightings, runway shows, influencer activities and consumer behavior through image recognition technology and cognitive computing, which will allow brands and retailers to predict trends and gauge demand.
“RevelGlam gives us a clear, measurable look into the future,” says Bud Konheim, chief executive officer of Nicole Miller. “The world is increasingly dependent upon data-optimized decision making, and the fashion industry must keep pace.”

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Claps Back at Mommy-Shamers Ahead of Mother’s Day

Just ahead of Mother’s Day, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi shared a sweet photo with daughter Giovanna, 2½, and clapped back at potential mommy-shamers.

“So proud of my little girl! ❤ (instead of not posting my kids for the people who respect and appreciate their photos , I will turn off the comments section.

Earlier in May, the proud mama shared a photo of Giovanna with big brother Lorenzo Dominic, 4½, as the siblings shared a sweet embrace before school.

“Big day for this Mama Bear. Both my kids are now officially in school,” Polizzi, 29, wrote to accompany the moment. “I’m feeling such a range of emotions from sad to excited to feeling so proud of my nuggets.”

“They’re pretty awesome human beings & bring so much joy and love into my life! PROUD MAMA today and everyday!” she added, tagging her husband, Jionni LaValle, and requesting they try day dates.

Anna Nicole Smith’s Daughter Dannielynn Birkhead Looks All Grown up at the Kentucky Derby

Anna Nicole Smith‘s 10-year-old daughter Dannielynn Birkhead looked adorable in her Kentucky Derby-ready get-up, posing with dad Larry Birkhead  ahead of the big race on Saturday.

Perhaps topping prior years’ outfits, her dress featured multiple shades of pink, complemented by her fascinator hat and flower-studded shoes.

The father-daughter pair, who live in rural Kentucky, have been attending the Derby together for the past seven years. And on Twitter on Saturday, Birkhead noted he met Smith at a Derby party.

“Dannielynn b4 she raided the dessert room at the Barnstable-Brown Party where I met her Mom in 2003 #lifefullcircle #BarnstableBrownParty,” Birkhead, 44, tweeted on Saturday as he posed alongside his daughter.

Birkhead, who works as a photographer and dabbles in real estate for a living, has raised his daughter — who looks just like her mother — as a single dad. Dannielynn was only 5 months old when Smith, a former Playmate of the Year, died at age 39 following a drug overdose in Florida in 2007.

In February, during a sneak peek on Good Morning America of a new 20/20 interview, Birkhead shared a sweet letter the 10-year-old wrote to explain her love of coloring and how it connects to her mother.

RELATED VIDEO: Dannielynn Birkhead is ‘Fearless’

“Ever since my mother’s death, a friend of hers said she would send me pretty butterflies,” Dannielynn had written. “So, butterflies chase me everywhere and I let the butterfly come out of my pencil and fly on my paper with its wings of love.”

Anna Nicole Smith’s Daughter Is Adorable In Annual Kentucky Derby Showing

No matter who snags the crown Saturday, Dannielynn Birkhead and father LarryBirkhead have won for the sweetest dad-and-daughter appearance.

The 10-year-old daughter of the late model Anna Nicole Smith continued her annual tradition of hitting the Kentucky Derby red carpet with her father this weekend. Both were decked out in cream and pink outfits Saturday, with Dannielynn topping her outfit off with a headpiece perfectly suited for the festivities. 

The pair also made an appearance the night before, all dolled up in formal attire for the 29th Barnstable Brown Kentucky Derby Eve gala.

In an interview with the “Today” show last year, Larry explained that he’s not interested in pushing his daughter into the spotlight.

“People call me all the time and say can she be in a movie, can she model?” Birkhead said at the time. “I didn’t care about it, so I’d say no, she’s not interested. She’s just a regular kid.”

Dannielynn has been making the Kentucky Derby rounds with her dad since 2010, when she was 3 years old. Clearly, her love of pink hasn’t changed a bit. And neither has her close bond with her dad.

Nicole Richie’s Pampered Pet Chicken May Have Welcomed Soon-to-Be Spoiled Babies

Nicole Richie likes the finer things in life … for her chickens.

The multi hyphenate has always been open about the deep love she has for her birds, which she reportedly “begged” husband Joel Madden to get her.

According to InStyle, Richie’s feathered friends have their own garden boxes filled with vegetables just for them. (Their celebrity mom felt this was a fair trade, since the animals allow her family to eat their eggs.)

But not all the eggs the chickens produce are for eating: At least one of the precious pets recently hatched some little chicks of her own based on Richie’s Instagram story.

On Wednesday, Richie posted several shots of her family members holding the baby chicks, a.k.a. “the new Maddens.” Better stock up on those veggies!

Nicole Kidman Says Keith Urban ‘Wasn’t Interested’ When They First Met

It was love at first sight for Nicole Kidman when she first met husband Keith Urban back in 2005. But for Urban, it took a little longer ― four months to be exact. 

Kidman told the story of the fateful night she met the country singer more than a decade ago at G’Day USA ― a Los Angeles gala for Australians where they were both being honored ― on an episode of “Ellen” that aired Thursday. The pair even have a picture of their first encounter. 

“We met that night. The craziest thing is to have a photo of when you first met,” she said. “Someone just took that photo and sent it to us. I remember thinking I had such a crush on him. And he wasn’t interested in me.”

An incredulous DeGeneres just couldn’t believe that. But Kidman insisted: “It’s true! He didn’t call me for four months.”

When pressed about why it took so long for Urban to pick up the phone, Kidman replied with a smile: 

“There’s certain things ― and I think anyone in a marriage would agree with this ― you just don’t. You just leave that. We’re here now and it’s all good. We don’t need to hash up all that stuff.” 

Based on an interview Urban did with Oprah Winfrey back in 2010, it seems that he was just intimidated by Kidman at first. 

“I introduced myself and she was very pleasant and everything,” he said. “And there was that moment of waiting for the next thing to be said, which I didn’t know if I was bothering her or what was going on. So I just sort of said, ‘Well nice to meet you.’ And I walked away.”

“And then I thought, was I supposed to say more?” Urban continued. “A friend of mine said, ‘I think she wanted to talk to you.” Me? Why would she want to talk to me? So I went back over and apologized and we just started talking and really clicked.” 

The couple, who are now parents to daughters Sunday and Faith, celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in June. These days, Urban is undeniably smitten with his wife. 

“Meeting [Nicole] and getting married wasn’t life-changing, it was life-beginning,” he said on CBS’ “Sunday Morning” in May. “It was literally, like, ‘Okay, life starts.’”

Nicole Kidman Clarifies Her Controversial ‘Support’ For Donald Trump In New Interview

Nicole Kidman is clarifying her controversial comments encouraging all Americans to accept President-elect Donald Trump in a new interview. 

The “Lion” actress came under fire this week for declaring that it’s time to support the reality-TV-host-turned-politician now that he’s been elected because “that’s what the country’s based on.”

Many considered Kidman’s statements to be dismissive of the potential problems of a Trump presidency, especially in light of her “Hours” co-star Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes appeal to “safeguard the truth” during this political moment.

“I was trying to stress that I believe in democracy and the American Constitution, and it was that simple,” she told Access Hollywood on Saturday. 

When asked to comment further on the backlash, the Oscar-actress refused to elaborate on her stance. “I’m out of it now,” she added. “That’s what I said and it’s that simple.”

Speaking with the BBC in her initial interview, Kidman explained that she was “reticent to start commenting politically” and prefers to keep her opinions about U.S. and Australian politics to herself. Kidman, who was born in Hawaii, is a dual citizen of both countries. 

However, the actress maintained that her passion for advocating for women’s rights like the fight against ovarian and breast cancer remains resolute. 

“I’m issue-based,” she said. “I’m very, very committed to women’s issues.”

Kidman is currently starring in “Lion,” which is in theaters now.

Nicole Kidman Thinks It’s Time All Americans Start Supporting Donald Trump

It sounds like Nicole Kidman is keeping her eyes wide shut when it comes to the many potential problems of a Donald Trump presidency. 

The Oscar-winning actress, who is a dual citizen of both the United States and Australia, caused some controversy this week when she encouraged Americans to accept and support the reality-TV-host-turned-politician now that he’s been elected. 

“I’m always reticent to start commenting politically; I’ve never done it in terms of America or Australia. I’m issue-based,” Kidman explained in a wide-ranging interview with BBC Two about her film “Lion.” “So I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whosever the president because that’s what the country’s based on.”

“Whatever, however that happened, he’s there, and let’s go,” she added.

Kidman went on to explain that, regardless of who’s in power, she will continue to support causes like women’s health. However, she didn’t seem to make the connection that those are the very rights that will be under attack when Trump takes office in January. 

“I’m very, very committed to women’s issues in terms of I do a lot of fundraising for U.N. Women and I do a lot of traveling for them,” Kidman said. “I also do an enormous amount of fundraising for breast and ovarian cancer, because that’s something that’s affected my family deeply. So they’re my issues that I’m very attached to.”

Kidman’s comments strike a very different tone than her “Hours” co-star Meryl Streep’s speech at the 74th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress implored Hollywood ― Kidman was also in the room ― and those watching at home to help “safeguard the truth” by challenging Trump’s attack on the press, foreigners and the entertainment industry. 

Apparently, someone missed the memo.

The Best Advice Elle Fanning Ever Got Was From Nicole Kidman

The cover star of Elle UK’s February issue is none other than actress Elle Fanning, the star of movies like “Maleficent,” “Trumbo,” and the upcoming film “20th Century Women,” which will premiere Feb. 10.

As part of the magazine’s theme on finding happiness, the publication asked readers to send in their personal dilemmas and questions for Fanning to address, and the 18-year-old actress proved wise beyond her years. 

When asked about the best advice she’s ever received, Fanning said:

Nicole Kidman told me, “Find your tribe and they’ll always be behind you.” I like that.

Deep stuff, right?

Fanning also provided advice on how to move on from an ex when living in an age dominated by social media, cautioning, “ … between Snapchat and Instagram, you can see everything — especially them with a new partner. But it’s damaging so you have to stop.”

Michael Phelps And Nicole Johnson’s Wedding Video Is Pure Romance

On Oct. 29, Michael Phelps tied the knot with Nicole Johnson in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Two months later, we’re finally getting a glimpse at the couple’s stunning wedding video, shot by Taylor Chien.

The pair officially got married back in June (before Phelps won his 23rd Olympic gold medal in Rio) in an intimate backyard ceremony in Tempe, Arizona with only five people present. Their destination wedding in Cabo ― with 50 guests, a mariachi band, an exquisite Julie Vino gown and party that went until 2:30 a.m. ―  was the real deal.

“When we talk about our wedding, we mean our Cabo wedding in October with our parents, our siblings, our bridal party, and a few people who played an integral part of our relationship while we were together,” the former Miss California told Brides magazine.

The couple’s now 7-month-old son Boomer acted as the ring bearer, donning a Burberry ensemble for the occasion while holding a little bag with the rings.

“I think he kind of sucked on the bag a little bit while he was standing up there!” Johnson said. 

The newlyweds also told Brides they live a “healthy, competitive” life together. 

“Every morning when we wake up, whoever says, ‘I love you more’ first wins for the day — and we’ve been doing this for a couple of years now,” Johnson said. 

Between a baby, a wedding and a record-breaking Olympic games, 2016 has been a big one for Phelps.

“It’s been a huge year,” he told Brides. “We just decided to do everything with a bang, and cram it all into a year! It was a hectic couple of months, but looking back, it was a great couple of months.”

Nicole Holofcener On ‘Enough Said,’ Her Golden Globe Snub And The TV Show She’d Most Like To Direct

Nicole Holofcener wrote and directed one of the year’s most-loved sleeper hits: “Enough Said,” the romantic-comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini as divorcees who spark an unexpected connection. Holofcener’s naturalistic writing style and grounded character dramedies have charmed audiences on the big screen for the better part of two decades, first with “Walking and Talking,” and later with movies like “Friends with Money” and “Please Give.” She’s also directed episodes of some of the decade’s best television series: “Sex and the City,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Six Feet Under,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Enlightened,” among others.

Last year, however, she was the subject of much acclaim. Reviewing “Enough Said,” Slate’s Dana Stevens praised Holofcener’s “admirable delicacy” and “razor-sharp dialogue.” Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice applauded her “knack for observing not just the way people respond to extreme situations, but what they do in everyday ones.” Along the way, the writer/director collected Best Screenplay nods at the Satellite Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards. If things go our way, she’ll earn an Oscar nomination for the movie come Jan. 16. In the meantime, though, we snagged a few minutes with Holofcener on the phone, where she was candid about being snubbed for the Golden Globe, the television show she’d most love to direct and what it was like to work with Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini.

Did you have Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini in mind while writing the script? Was anyone else considered for these roles?
I did not have them in mind. I did have a couple of other actors in mind that I won’t mention at the moment because it would be kind of uncouth. I had a general idea of who I would like and who would be great, but you never know who’ll be interested or available. But it does help, as a writer, to put faces on characters. It helps me to write.

As an actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a master of improv. Was there an improv component to the project?
We stuck to the script. It’s funny, I wouldn’t say so much improv as ad-libbing. I don’t know if there’s a big difference, but it’s not like they would improvise and take the scene somewhere different. It’s more like they added a line or two, or changed a line and made it funnier, or added a line at the end of the scene where they thought maybe I cut. It was more like that, and it was very useful. I kept so much of their ad-libs; they’re hilarious and smart and so appropriate for their characters. It was great.

Can you offer an example of a scene that was improved by ad-libbing?
Yeah, Julia gets out of the car, she says, “I like your paddles.” He says, “I like your ass.” And that was Jim. That’s not in the script, and he said that in rehearsal, and I said, “Oh, you’ve got to say that when we shoot.” And he’s like, “No, Albert would never say that.” And there comes a point where it’s like, yeah, Albert might not have said it, but it makes Albert so much sexier and more funny that I want him to say that. I want him to be able to do that. It’s wonderful, right? I mean, what a great way to end the scene — it adds so much.

Right, an added punch.
And it makes him seem sexier because he has the guts to say that.

I know you cast Catherine Keener in basically every movie you direct. Do you think of her as a muse? What’s your gravitation toward her?
My gravitation toward her is based on her talent and our comfort level. I think she’s an extraordinary actor. She has been my muse. I didn’t write [Keener’s “Enough Said” character] Marianne with her in my mind, at least not consciously — but I have written parts just for her, and so in that respect she’s a huge inspiration. She’s fun, she’s smart, she makes my scripts better. Let’s go with that, right?

Did you get to talk to Julia after the announcement of her Golden Globe nomination?
No. Well, I texted her because I never know where the hell she is. I texted her, and then she texted me back. I texted her congratulations, and she texted me, “I hope you’re all right,” because I didn’t get a nomination.

And are you all right?
Well, I was very disappointed, actually. Of course, anybody who says they’re not is lying. As much as I was disappointed for the film and for myself, but I was also disappointed because I really wanted to go and be with her and have fun doing that together. So I don’t think that’s going to happen.

So you don’t see yourself getting invited as being associated with her nomination?
I don’t think so. And I don’t think I’d feel comfortable going since I wasn’t nominated or the movie wasn’t. I’m very happy she was. I’d be heartbroken if she wasn’t; she deserves every acknowledgement she gets.

You’ve directed some of the biggest TV shows of the past decade. What one show would you love to direct right now?
Oh gee, what’s on the air now? I’ve stopped watching anything recently. I read about that show “Getting On,” I think it’s called.

Yeah, with Laurie Metcalf?
Exactly. I wanted a job on that so badly, and I just found out it’s not picked up, I think. Maybe I should figure that out.

It’s on the air now. You should watch it, it’s great.
Yeah, I’m planning on watching the whole thing. It’s so up my alley that when I read about it, I was like, “I want to do one of those!”

It totally seems like your directing style. Would you want to do “Veep”?
Absolutely, I do. I kind of feel like that’s a machine that’s going so well. I don’t know who directs all the different ones, but it’s not as much in my style, obviously. I don’t know, it would be a blast, it really would. But I don’t know, it’s in Washington, and they’ve kind of got their directors set, so it’s not something I’m hoping to — I don’t know how to put it.

Do you have a classic episode of TV or a TV show as a whole that you look back and wish you had been a part of?
Well, yeah, I wish I had directed “The Sopranos.” Watching that, I was like, “Ugh, wish I could have gotten in there, that would have been a blast.” That didn’t happen. I grew up watching “I Love Lucy” obsessively, but I’d be dead by now if I had directed one of those.

You have a “special thanks” credit on “Where the Wild Things Are.” Did your involvement with that film lead you to meet James Gandolfini?
Oh no, I actually just wrote and directed “Where the Wild Things Are” and so they felt that had to put my name there. [Laughs] No, I did not meet Jim through [director Spike Jonze], but I watched several cuts of that movie and gave feedback and helped him try to fix some dialogue. That was the “thank you.” I met Jim in a very traditional way: I actually sent him a script of mine a few years ago and wanted to meet him about being in it, but he wasn’t quite right for that particular part, so I kept in the back of my mind because I loved meeting him so much.

Can you tell me what particular part that was?
It was a part that Oliver Platt eventually had in “Please Give.” He was Catherine Keener’s husband, and Jim would have been great, but he had just come off of “The Sopranos” more recently and his character kept screwing around. He had so many mistresses, and in “Please Give,” the character cheats and I didn’t want that connotation. Although I thought he would have been great in the part as well, but I’m so glad I got a bigger part for him and a chance to work with him longer than that.

Your next movie, “Every Secret Thing,” seems different. What attracted you to a crime story, and how do you decide once you’ve written a script whether you’ll direct it as well?
Well, this one was very easy. I was hired by Frances McDormand, who was producing it, to adapt the book, and I thought the book was really interesting and psychological. And the main two characters were 11-year-old girls, and I love that kind of dark psychological stuff, and I enjoyed writing it. And when it came time to direct it, I realized I couldn’t go with something that dark that long in my life.

So that was a decision you made?
Yeah, and it involved the death of a baby, and I just couldn’t go there.

So you could write it, but you didn’t want to have to put yourself in the scene of having to direct it for maybe months on end?
Yeah, and then edit it for months, exactly. I couldn’t face that. I think I made the right choice.

“Enough Said” is in theaters now. It will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Jan. 14.
