Milan Fashion Week Men’s Spring 2019: Ones to Watch

LES HOMMES URBAN

Les Hommes is expanding into streetwear with the launch of the Les Hommes Urban line, which is available for sale at the brand’s Milan showroom during fashion week.
“The LHU collection was born out of a creative and a practical idea. When we go back to the very early days of Les Hommes, there were a lot of urban influences in the collection, such as graffiti and workwear. It is a creative playground that we always embraced and are very fascinated by,” said Tom Notte, who designs the collection with longtime business partner Bart Vandebosch.
“From the practical point of view, we were pushed to launch LHU by the feedback we were getting from our own stores. In Antwerp, where the first store was founded, we were confronted with a demand from young guys who were very interested in our collection, but because of its positioning, it was out of reach for them. We created a streetwear brand that carries the originality of a designer brand since many pieces are treated and designed with the same care as we do for Les Hommes.”
For their first LHU collection, the designers took inspiration

Original Grain Creates Special Red Sox Watch

The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry has extended to wristwatches.
Last year, Original Grain Watch Co., which specializes in storytelling timepieces, offered a limited-edition collection themed to the Bronx Bombers that used wood from the original 1923 Yankee Stadium seats.
Not to be outdone, Original Grain has turned its attention this season to its division rivals, the Red Sox. The company has created another limited-edition championship watch set, but this one features reclaimed wood from the 1946 wooden seats at Fenway Park. That watch — the .406 Barrel timepiece —commemorates the batting average that Red Sox star Ted Williams ended the 1941 season with — the last major leaguer to do so.
The watch will retail for $ 595 and launch on June 29, just in time for the start of this weekend’s series between the two teams.
The Yankee watch is still available as well and retails for $ 795.

Sean Lowe Opens Up About 4-Week-Old Son Isaiah: I’m Excited to Watch My Boys ‘Grow Up Together’

Father’s Day is just around the corner and this year, Sean Lowe is celebrating two times over.

“I take so much pride in fatherhood,” the 34-year-old former Bachelor — who welcomed his second child with wife Catherine Giudici Lowe, son Isaiah Hendrix, on May 18 — tells PEOPLE.

Lowe and his wife Catherine are also parents to Samuel Thomas, 2 next month. And just like with their first child, they didn’t find out the sex of the new baby until his birth.

“I was very surprised that we had another boy. I couldn’t believe it for a second when I saw after he came out! I was mentally prepared to have a girl.”

Continues Lowe, “So far everyone is saying he looks like me. Which is great because with Samuel, everybody says he has his mama’s face and my coloring. So it’s nice that I have a kid who looks like me now.”

And the father of two says he’s excited to one day teach his boys some of the lessons he learned from his own dad.

“My dad was always the one who would rather do something himself rather than pay someone else to do it,” says Lowe, who has partnered with Lowe’s and CRAFTSMAN.

“I want to take that same spirit and instill it in my sons. It’s such a valuable tool to have — if something goes wrong, I can fix it myself! Not to mention I can have something to pass down to them. The CRAFTSMAN Mechanics Tool Set will last forever.”

RELATED: Catherine Giudici Lowe Feels “Absolutely Complete” After Son No. 2: “It’s Been So Surreal”

For now, the former reality star is grateful to be getting some stretches of snoozes (“Isaiah is a great sleeper!”) and treasuring the moments of brotherly bonding.

“Samuel constantly wants to give him kisses and Isaiah just lays there and takes it and never cries,” says Lowe. “He’s such a chill baby.”

“I just think it will be so fun to watch them grow up together and be best friends,” Lowe shares. “I’m really excited to watch the dynamic as these boys grow into men.”

RELATED VIDEO: Happy Father’s Day to Some of Our Favorite Dads!

As for the big day on Sunday, “I just want quality time with the kids and Catherine,” says Lowe. “There’s a donut shop down the street from us so we’ll walk down there as a family. And we might go to the community water park. It’s really hot in Dallas!”

Still, Lowe admits it sometimes feels “bizarre” to actually be a father. “I feel too immature to have a family sometimes,” he says with a laugh. “But our goal is to fill our home with laughter and love, and we do that every day.”

He explains, “It’s fun to be goofy, while still maintaining discipline. I crack a lot of jokes at Samuel’s expense. But he’s going to grow up with a good sense of humor and always knowing how much his dad loves him.”

WATCH: Go Inside the Cannes Film Festival’s Most Exclusive Party Spot — the Hôtel du Cap

 

Want to vacation among Hollywood’s most glamorous? Just head to the Hôtel du Cap.

With the 2018 Cannes Film Festival getting under way, stars are gathering at what is often dubbed the most exclusive hotel on the French Riviera — its full name is the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc — to mingle and party throughout the nearly two-week long fest. And PEOPLE Deputy Editor J.D. Heyman is giving you an inside look.

“This has been a Hollywood hotel since the beginning of the 20th century,” explains Heyman.

RELATED: All About the Utah Resort Where Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima Celebrated His Birthday

The hotel is a hot spot during Cannes. Last year, everyone from Uma Thurman and Will Smith to Jessica Chastain and Tobey Maguire stepped out at the amfAR Gala, held at the hotel every year. And models including Emily Ratajkowski and Coco Rocha shared glam photos of themselves enjoying the iconic property on social media.

 

The previous year, on-again couple Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry all but confirmed their relationship with a cheeky Instagram post snapped on the hotel’s famous steps.

The property has also been a fixture in literature and a getaway spot for some of America’s most iconic luminaries.

Fitzgerald based the hotel in Tender is the Night ” says Heyman, adding that the Kennedy’s often chose the oceanfront hotel as a vacation destination. ” John F. Kennedy was here when he was 21 years old.” (The hotel is located just off the Boulevard John F. Kennedy.)

During the festival, the hotel serves as the site of numerous parties, including the amfAR benefit and the De Grisogono jewelry party.

RELATED: Kylie Jenner’s Post-Baby Birthday Hideaway and More Celeb-Favorite Hotels Around the World

And with Hollywood guests as hotel regulars, it’s no wonder rooms can cost at least $ 2,000 a night. In fact, up until 2006, Hôtel du Cap was a cash-only hotel, meaning guests had to either bring wads of bills in their suitcases or wire money to pay for their stay.

But the price is well worth the extravagant amenities and breathtaking views.

“It stretches over 20 acres here of pines and tropical gardens,” says Heyman. “The Hôtel du Cap is the jewel of the French Riviera.”

Ones to Watch: Batsheva’s Downtown Modesty

Amid a moment of evolving gender norms, Batsheva Hay — a former litigator — is looking to spin an empowered narrative from over-the-top modesty. In a single season, her namesake dress brand, Batsheva, has found a following, nearly selling out at Opening Ceremony.
Batsheva’s pastoral designs meld elements of Anne of Green Gables, Laura Ashley, and Eighties neo-Victoriana. Ruffled sleeves, collars and hems extend from mid-neck to knee. Hay’s dresses have found popularity among young downtown types, who pair the designs with old trainers and mussed-up hair.
For fall 2018, Hay has expanded the line to include an assortment of matching fabric handbags — each fashioned to look like small babushka pouches.

Hay, the wife of photographer Alexei Hay, embarked on the project as a post-partum hobby. “After quitting my legal job and having two kids I felt like I was wasting my intelligence and energy. I just had the desire to make some clothes I wanted to wear,” the native New Yorker explained.
“In motherhood I had a weird identity shift and body shift and I didn’t enjoy shopping anymore, I didn’t like anything except my old vintage clothes. They were in complete disrepair and I went to remake one of them with the

Ones to Watch: Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — From the debut collection of design-led sustainable men’s brand, Phipps, to Nïuku’s modern-day tribute to men’s tailoring of yore, here are some of the new talents to look out for at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks into high gear today.
Phipps

“It’s about acknowledging that we’re all people, we’re in this together,” said Spencer Phipps, founder of Phipps, a new men’s wear line mixing sustainability and style that is due to launch on Jan. 20 during Paris Men’s Week. (The venue is still to be confirmed.)
The Paris-based designer, who is from San Francisco, cut his teeth in the men’s studio of Marc Jacobs in New York before working for Dries Van Noten in Antwerp for three years. After leaving Van Noten, he spent eight months researching manufacturers and materials. “I did my graduate collection in sustainability in 2008 at Parsons and it was like a joke. I ended up finding one manufacturer in New England that was basically some hippy commune that made hemp and linen and one cotton flannel,” he said.
So Phipps opted to work with manufacturers in Portugal, “a country that is basically certified [for sustainability].”

WATCH: Gerard Butler and 50 Cent Get Quizzed and Schooled on Their Spanish-Language Skills

50 Cent (née Curtis Jackson) and Gerard Butler are the stars of new action thriller Den of Thieves. The movie exposes Los Angeles’s criminal underbelly pitting two opposing forces against one another — that of an exclusive team of law enforcement officials within the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and that of a clever gang of outlaws who’ve masterly robbed innumerable banks. Unlike your typical “cops and robbers” drama, the lines separating the good guys from the bad guys is blurred, as the bandits try to execute — and the cops try to thwart — an impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles. Butler as Nick Flanagan leads the gang of cops and 50 Cent plays outlaw Levi Enson.

50 Cent and Butler put aside their tough guy roles to get grilled by PEOPLE CHICA on their Spanish-speaking skills.

Watch the duo learn español below:

After brushing up on their Spanish, the pair revealed what makes Den of Thieves stand out from other heist flicks. “You never know where it’s going to go,” said Butler. “It’s a clever movie. It kind of has it all. You see at the gang level. You see them at the performance level, and then you’re also getting these surprising, emotional moments with families and lives gone wrong.”

50 Cent agreed, adding: “It’s like cops and robbers and a lot of times those films don’t show you who the characters are, their lives and actual backgrounds. It’s interesting to see that part.”

The film, out in theaters today, also stars O’Shea Jackson and Pablo Schreiber.

Born and raised in York, John Alexander Skelton received his master’s in fashion men’s wear at Central Saint Martins and took on internships at E. Tautz and Patrik Ervell before launching his label last year. Selected by Giles Deacon, Skelton is a recipient of the Sarabande scholarship, an initiative from The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation that aids young designers. He is working out of a studio at Sarabande in east London.
Sustainability is a key theme for Skelton, who incorporates repurposed materials into his ranges and takes a DIY approach to his work. He has a loom in his studio and many of his fabrics are handwoven, as is much of his knitwear. “Everything I dye is also done by hand using natural dye. The handcrafted element is my signature, in a way,” said the designer.
For fall 2018, Skelton has been working with mills in Ireland, mixing British wool and Irish linen.
“I have been doing a lot of hand weaving, as well, on the loom. I have also done a few natural dyes this time, one using an ancient European dye, the European version of indigo, called woad,” he said.
Skelton’s main focus has always been on the process and

What to Watch: How Emerging Streetwear Brands Are Navigating 2018

What’s next for streetwear? Critics of the category say the frenzy — see ComplexCon or the crowds that form around Supreme every week — is unsustainable and unhealthy for the market. Newer brands, meanwhile, believe it’s an ideal time to expand their businesses. Here, three young streetwear brands detail how they will approach the year and what they believe is in the pipeline for the category.
424

Del the Funky Homosapien in 424. 

Guillermo Andrade opened his Los Angeles concept store, FourTwoFour, which is located on Fairfax, in 2010. He sold pieces from Fear of God along with more established firms such as Rick Owens and Thom Browne. By 2014, Andrade started his own line, 424, that’s been picked up by retailers including Barneys New York and SSENSE.
WWD: What do you think about the current state of streetwear?
Guillermo Andrade: It seems to me that it is very positive. The amount of opportunity out there for a young brand like mine is exponential.
WWD: How do you plan on navigating the industry in 2018?
G.A.: Amongst the sea of hype and all the noise around hot brands, there is one thing that cannot be forgotten and that is product is king. I will continue to focus

What to Watch: Sneaker Chains Constrict

While the demand for sneakers continues to increase, it’s no longer enough to sell them in a run-of-the-mill retail environment.
Larger chains including Foot Locker, which closed 24 U.S. stores in 2017, and Shiekh Shoes, a West Coast retailer with 120 stores that filed for bankruptcy in November, must adapt to a changing consumer who wants to buy special product in a thoughtful space and is inundated with alternative ways to purchase shoes — whether that’s an e-commerce site, specialty boutique, resale app, or a festival and marketplace like ComplexCon or Sneaker Con.
“Today I think we have a few too many sneaker stores in the U.S.,” said Yu-Ming Wu, the cofounder of Sneaker Con. “There is an incredible demand for rare sneakers but when it comes to the general release sneakers like Air Jordans, the supply doesn’t meet the demand. Some of these guys have relied on the old model that every Saturday an Air Jordan is going to sell out, but that’s not always going to hold true today.”
Shiekh Shoes owes $ 16 million to Nike, and the store’s founder, Shiekh Ellahi, attributes his troubles to the shrinking demand for bricks-and-mortar retailers as well as suppliers’ desire to sell their products

WATCH: Jennifer Hudson Lays Her ‘Burden Down’ in Haunting New Music Video

Jennifer Hudson is back with a new single that would make Effie White proud.

The Grammy and Oscar-winning artist released the emotional anthem “Burden Down” and its accompanying music video on Tuesday in which she can be seen singing her heart out à la her Dreamgirls days. “Burden Down” follows Hudson’s hit “Remember Me” as the second single off of her highly anticipated fourth album, due out in 2018.

For much of the Sam Lecca-directed clip, Hudson sits at a piano in an all-white ensemble in what looks like an empty warehouse. At the end, she takes it up a notch by stepping away from the piano to sing the chorus in a chilling a capella moment.

“Can I lay this burden down? / Can you take it up for me? / When you run me in the ground that’s the day you will see,” Hudson, 36, sings in the chorus. “For all I’ve done all alone, just for a moment please could I not be strong? / Wish I knew how, how to lay this burden down.”

RELATED VIDEO: 3 Successful Winners (and 1 Runner-Up) from The Voice

Hudson also vents in the second verse of the song: “You keep me asking, you keep taking / And that’s no reciprocation / I shouldn’t have to do this by myself.”

The lyrics could be a reference to the end of her 10-year relationship with her fiancé, David Otunga — with whom she shares 8-year-old son, David Jr. — in November. “They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” Hudson’s rep told PEOPLE exclusively at the time.

Despite the tremendous ups and downs in her personal life, the release of “Burden Down” caps off a big year for Hudson. For her work on The Color Purple Broadway cast recording album, she earned a Grammy in the category of Best Musical Theater Album. She also took her talents to the small screen as a coach on the 13th season of NBC’s The Voice, which airs its finale and crowns a winner next week.

Parmigiani Fleurier Unveils Bugatti Watch Inspired by $3 Million Supercar

TOP SPEED: Swiss independent watchmaker Parmigiani Fleurieri hosted an event at the exclusive Automobile Club de France in Paris on Wednesday to celebrate the launch of its Bugatti Type 390 watch, timed to coincide with the first deliveries of the car manufacturer’s $ 3 million Chiron super sports car.
Billed as a horological interpretation of the Chiron, the fastest production car in the world with a top speed of 260 miles per hour for road use, the timepiece is the fruit of four years of development and features a unique design inspired by the car’s engine, interior and bodywork construction.

Steve Amstutz, vice president and chief commercial officer at Parmigiani Fleurier, said the brands share the values of innovation, authenticity and exclusivity. The latter is certainly true: The watchmaker will produce only three limited editions of 10 watches each.
The white gold and rose gold versions, available now, are priced at $ 295,000, while the titanium edition coming out next year will retail for $ 270,000, said Amstutz, who told WWD the brand will unveil an exclusive personalization service for the timepiece at the upcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie trade fair in Geneva in January.

Watch Octomom Nadya Suleman’s Kids Adorably Take Up ‘Entire Sack Race’ at Thanksgiving Field Day

“Octomom” Nadya Suleman and her eight 8-year-old kids had a very active Thanksgiving morning.

The 42-year-old mother of 14 and her youngest children Makai, Josiah, Isaiah, Jonah, Maliyah, Jeremiah, Nariyah and Noah participated in an annual Thanksgiving race and field day in their California community, with Nadya — who now goes by Natalie now — sharing photos and video of their outing to Instagram.

One video captured the octuplets competing against one another in a sack race. “#WhenYourKidsTakeUpTheEntireSackRace,” she captioned the clip, adding “#NeverGiveUp.”

That phrase seemed to be for her son Jonah, who struggled to keep up with his brothers and sisters. “You can do it, don’t give up!” Suleman encouraged him before he eventually stepped out of the sack to catch up with his siblings at the finish line.

In another video, Suleman made sure Jonah wasn’t left behind again — carrying him to finish the race.

“Last but not least to finish the race…#LittleJonah,” she explained of the clip. “#NeverGiveUp #IsJonahYourHouseAndYourTheSnail.”

The family has participated in this Thanksgiving activity for a few years now, photos of which Suleman has often shared on social media.

“A new year, an old tradition…” Suleman wrote on Instagram in a now-deleted photo, accompanying a smiling family photo of herself and her kids. “#TurkeyTrot5k #FitFamily #HappyThanksgiving.”

As fans remember, Suleman made headlines after giving birth to octuplets in 2009 when she was already the mother of six children. She quickly earned the name “Octomom.”

In February of this year she opened to Inside Edition about the media scrutiny she faced after she made the tough decision to release a sex tape, pose for a nude photo shoot and become a stripper to provide for her children.

“I never coined the term Octomom. Octomom was created by the media,” she said. “They made it up without my permission, but I took accountability out of desperation to provide for my family. Shamefully … I abandoned my own identity.”

“I had stopped wanting to do it from day one,” she told PEOPLE in November 2016, adding that she only earned $ 8,000 from the video. “I was violating my boundaries and my value system and my own self. I didn’t think of it at the time because I was in survival mode, and I was doing whatever I possibly could to provide for my kids.”

RELATED VIDEO: Natalie Suleman on Dropping The ‘Octomom’ Moniker

The troubling times caused her to step out of the spotlight and “abandon the character” in 2013 — a decision that has had a positive impact on her family.

“I was alive again,” she said. “As ‘Octomom,’ I was the walking dead. When I woke up and I went back to my roots, my helping profession, and my kids, we were struggling financially but it didn’t matter. I never felt so free and so happy in my life.”

Now, they all live together in a three-bedroom town home in Orange County, California and dine on an all-vegan menu of cheese-less pizza, lots of veggies and chocolate cake.

“I have embraced every day with gratitude,” Suleman, who works as a counselor, said.

And it’s obviously adorable.

The Cincinnati Zoo posted the fizzy clip to Instagram on Sept. 21 with the caption, “Fiona blowing bubbles on the other end.” It has since garnered more than 37,000 views.

The zoo also updated fans more specifically about the young hippo’s growth on Saturday.

“500 lbs of LOVE!!!”  the zoo posted on Instagram. “We are so excited that Fiona has reached 500 lbs today! Female hippos weigh around 3,000 lbs when fully grown so she’s still got a lot of growing to do but she is headed in the right direction! Early on we didn’t know if this day would ever get here. Thanks to everyone for never giving up on this little (big) nugget!”

What to Watch: The Trends

From baggy denim silhouettes and casual corduroys to unexpected statement logos, the fall runways offered a flood of fashion trends for men — a few of which will undoubtedly migrate from the catwalk to the mainstream over coming seasons. As Nelson Mui, men’s fashion director for Hudson’s Bay at the time, said in February during the shows: “With the political and business climate so uncertain, it felt like everyone wanted the comfort of commercial trends. It was the most commercial season in a while.” Here, a look at some of the men’s trends hitting store floors now.

What to Watch: Men’s Wear Holds Its Own in Struggling Environment

Historically in men’s wear, the highs are never as high and the lows are never as low as the more-volatile women’s market. That’s been the case this year as well even as men’s manufacturers and retailers struggle to navigate through the same rocky roads affecting the entire fashion world.
As department and large specialty stores battle the big online players, close stores and revamp their mixes, men’s wear isn’t immune to the downturn. But thanks to some must-have fashion pieces coupled with innovative in-store strategies, the second half looks promising for the men’s market.
Tailored Brands, the largest public men’s wear-only retailer with more than 1,500 stores, reported that business stabilized in the first quarter when net earnings increased. Last year, the company, which is still digesting the Jos. A. Bank acquisition from three years ago, closed more than 200 stores as it adjusted its portfolio to better address consumer demand. So while sales were down at its divisions, which include Men’s Wearhouse in the U.S. and Moores in Canada, the company did point to its growing custom business as an area of strength. “Custom is a big growth opportunity for us,” chief executive officer Doug Ewert said in June.

What to Watch: Sportswear Dollars Now Spread Around the World

It’s no surprise that some of the stalwarts in the sportswear arena have been struggling of late.
Ralph Lauren, whose polo has long been an industry staple, is in the midst of a major restructuring as revenues continue to shrink. After a rocky 18 months under Stefan Larsson as chief executive officer, the company named Patrice Louvet of Procter & Gamble to the top spot to help the brand navigate the rapidly changing fashion landscape.
But the company is not alone is searching out ways to reverse its fortunes. Nautica recently had a change at the top, tapping Brendan Sullivan from VF Corp., its parent company, to succeed Karen Murray as president. And J. Crew has also had its share of problems: longtime chief Millard “Mickey” Drexler stepped down as chief executive officer and handed the reins to West Elm’s James Brett.
As these companies work to right their ships, other brands have started to make headway. Thanks to a Nineties resurgence, Tommy Hilfiger is hot again and other labels such as Vineyard Vines and Psycho Bunny continue to gain momentum. Although the bulk of the sales for these large American brands come through bricks-and-mortar stores, the online competition continues to heighten, particularly

What to Watch: Shape Shifters

In the early Aughts, designers such as Hedi Slimane and Thom Browne challenged the men’s wear norm by introducing ultra-fitted silhouettes after nearly two decades of extremely slouchy fits.
But a few seasons ago, the proportion game started to change as influential South Korean designer Juun J joined new cult status brand Y/Projects and Belgian designer Raf Simons to push body comfort over body conscious. But it wasn’t until Demna Gvasalia’s first runway collection for Balenciaga a year ago that the door to the new trend was kicked open.
Gvasalia’s exaggerated boxy cuts with “Dynasty”-like shoulder pads sent shock waves through the fashion establishment.
As with most things in fashion, for spring 2018, the trend has now gone wide, as key brands such as Martine Rose, Marni, Giorgio Armani, Dries Van Noten and Bode have all proposed elongated double-breasted suits, boxy jackets, ultrawide pants and longer-than-long coats. Even retail-friendly labels such as Boss Hugo Boss, Todd Snyder and Perry Ellis are joining the conversation, making the “bigger is better” comeback story a business reality.
The oversize silhouette is affecting more than just tailored clothing. Thanks to the revival of Nineties streetwear and its baggy denim offerings, the look is taking hold in sportswear as

What to Watch: Are Separate Men’s Fashion Shows a Dying Breed?

The men’s fashion calendar is in a state of flux.
The rise of the co-ed show, where major designers are opting to show their men’s wear during the traditional February and September women’s dates, is seriously impinging on the men’s market.
Probably the hardest hit this past season was Milan Men’s Fashion Week, following the decisions by Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Missoni and Etro to go co-ed.
London was also impacted. The big names — including Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford and Moschino — all decided to show in different cities or formats, while a number of smaller calendar stalwarts were absent, too, including Sibling, which went into voluntary liquidation earlier this year; Agi & Sam, which is restrategizing, and Casely-Hayford, which is switching its focus to retail.
One bright spot on the European circuit was Pitti Uomo, the international trade show in Florence. The most recent edition in June found a calendar chock-full of shows and presentations that included J.W. Anderson and Off-White events along with special guests such as Hugo Boss, Christian Louboutin, Federico Curradi and Alanui.
Paris seemed to hold its own the best, with a bevy of new names added to the spring calendar to join the big guns: Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten,

Citizen Watch Partners With Billie Jean King

Citizen Watch is teaming with tennis legend Billie Jean King.
The former world number-one women’s player and 12-time Grand Slam champion is the subject of the forthcoming feature film “Battle of the Sexes,” starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.
Citizen, this year marking its 25th year as the official timekeeper for the U.S. Open, has pledged itself as the “exclusive timepiece sponsor” for the film. The movie is due in theaters on Sept. 22.
As such, Citizen has also pledged involvement with King’s Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative, which looks to engage younger generations in the game of tennis and promote gender equality.
Ellen Seckler, Citizen’s executive vice president for marketing, said of the brand’s new partnership: “It was a natural choice for us to partner with such an inspiring individual, such as Billie Jean King, who holds true many of the same ideals as Citizen. King’s nonstop initiatives to bring equality and fairness to the world, sports and beyond, mirrors Citizen’s existing efforts to empower and support our younger generations.”
King said Citizen “over the years has distinguished itself by supporting causes focused on equality. Together with Citizen and the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative, we will present many exciting programs and amplify the messages

You Have to Watch Thor: Ragnarok to Understand Avengers 3

One of the biggest questions coming out of Avengers: Infinity War’s first footage is, “What the heck is Thor doing floating around in space?” IGN got a chance to catch up with Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth at San Diego Comic-Con, where he confirmed the answer to that question will be revealed in the upcoming Thor movie.

“I think you’ll have to watch our film first to understand what Avengers is about,” he teased.

Watch our full interview with Hemsworth below:

Hemsworth also spoke to the experience of filming with characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy for the first time in Infinity War, saying, “We read the script for the first time and I think all of us had the same sort of excitement about who we’re going to meet, who we’re going to hang with, and a lot of those guys I hadn’t even met in person let alone on screen, so it felt like a sort of fanboy experience.”

WATCH: Billy Ray Cyrus Reveals the Surprise From Daughter Miley’s Fiancé Liam Hemsworth That Won Him Over

 

Liam Hemsworth has Billy Ray Cyrus’ blessing to marry his daughter, Miley Cyrus, for many reasons.

The 55-year-old country crooner sat down with PEOPLE Now to chat about his hit CMT show Still The King, which airs Tuesdays at 10/9 c, when he couldn’t help but share thoughtful gesture dreamt up by Hemsworth that earned him the stamp of approval for life.

“I love Liam so much,” Cyrus said of the Hunger Games star. “I was doing a show down in Nashville and Miley had been all over the world and she had been going nonstop. and Liam surprised me at my show.”

“She said, ‘Liam said, ‘Man, let’s go down and surprise your dad — let’s go!’” He says. “I told him — from now, forward and forever — he never has to get me a birthday or Christmas present; he’s paid in full!”

After ending their engagement in 2013, Cyrus and Hemsworth rekindled their romance in early 2016. In May, Cyrus opened up in her Billboard cover story about her love ballad for Hemsworth, “Malibu,” where she admitted they need to “refall for each other.”

Designers to Watch During New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Brand: Private Policy
Designers: Haoran Li and Siying Qu
Aesthetic: Genderless luxury streetwear
Backstory: The duo met while they were design students at The New School’s Parsons School of Design. Both China natives who had emigrated to New York to fulfill their dreams in fashion, they graduated in May 2015 and blended Qu’s talents in women’s wear and Li’s in men’s wear to create Private Policy. They offered up a range of unisex silhouettes in high-quality fabrics such as satin/velvet, silk/wool and fur, with a mission to reinvent downtown streetwear. But the collection also delivers a loud societal message and a call to action — prior seasons have taken on issues such as slave labor and global warning.
Spring Inspiration: Trinkets: A View of America Through Foreigners’ Eyes. The idea behind the collection is that in light of the current political climate, the idea of the American Dream may be lost. So the duo collected some pieces from ordinary life and infused them into Native American-inspired vests and jackets, reinvented denim jackets and pants embellished with rhinestones and abstract prints that resemble the Thank You plastic bags used at convenience stores around the country.

WATCH: Rescued Orphan Otter Baby Gets Lots of Love (and a Bath!)

Want to see something otter-ly adorable? Of course you do!

According to the Vancouver Aquarium’s Facebook page, this little guy was rescued from the open waters off northern Vancouver Island on Sunday. He’s less than 1 month old, and some concerned members of the public found him swimming alone.

 

Currently he’s under 24-hour care at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre and appears healthy, but needs constant supervision the same way he would from his natural mom. The little pup, who has not yet been named, is being looked after night and day — including feeding, bathing and grooming — by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers from the rescue center.

“After birth sea otters spend about six months with mom, nursing, being groomed by her and learning to forage and be a sea otter, so this little guy is still a fully dependent pup. He would not survive on his own, and we’re providing him with the care he needs right now,” says the Vancouver Aquarium in a comment on its Facebook page.

Since the pup is only 2 to 4 weeks old, he’ll be in capable hands for a while.

The aquarium also posted a follow-up message to the public:

“REMINDER: Distressed animals should be reported first rather than taken from the ocean. Once they’re removed from the wild, it’s impossible to determine if the mother is alive and if they could have been reunited, or if bringing them in was the appropriate action.

What to do if you see what appears to be a stranded marine mammal:
– Do not approach it, and keep pets away.
– Call the our Rescue Centre at 604.258.SEAL (7325)
– Do not move the animal unless instructed to do so.”

Robert Geller Designs G-Steel Watch

NEW YORK — Robert Geller and G-Shock have been collaborating on watches for his fashion shows for around five years, but the two brands have extended their relationship by partnering on a new limited-edition men’s watch under the brand’s G-Steel imprint for the first time. The watch, the GST200RBG-1, will go on sale July 7 and retail for $ 420.
The joint venture marks the first collaboration for G-Steel, a collection that is inspired by the urban elements in Tokyo, headquarters to G-Shock’s parent, Casio.
The two brands introduced the watch at a dinner on the Lower East Side Tuesday night.
Michael Princiotto, senior marketing manager for Casio, said since Geller manufactures his collection in Japan and has a deep knowledge of the country, the partnership made perfect sense. “That was key for us,” he said.
He said he hopes the watch will help consumers realize that G-Shock has offerings in a variety of price points. “We have a $ 99 watch and a $ 1,000 watch, but we were looking for something in the $ 400 range to bridge the gap.”
The watch features a black ion-plated stainless steel metal band, case and buttons, with gold accents on the face and a dark fuchsia second hand that speaks

Watch Otto Warmbier’s Wistful Graduation Speech Before North Korean Captivity: ‘This Is the End of One Great Show’

Otto Warmbier showed off his warmth, humor and humanity in an evocative speech the salutatorian delivered at his 2013 high school graduation.

The 22-year-old Ohio native, who was released from imprisonment in North Korea in a coma on Tuesday, waxed nostalgic about their tight-knit community during his speech to his fellow Wyoming High School graduates.

“We know where everyone is going next year. We know where everyone has come from. We know how to make each other comfortable,” he said. “We know when someone is struggling, and we come together as a class to make things better.”

Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for allegedly stealing a North Korean propaganda poster from a staff-only area of his Pyongyang hotel. He was in the country as part of a four-day, three-night tour with Young Pioneers Tours, a Chinese company that markets itself as providing “budget travel to destinations your mother would rather you stayed away from.”

Doctors who examined Warmbier at University of Cincinnati Health determined that he has “extensive loss of brain tissue” and shows “no signs of understanding language.” They described his current condition as “unresponsive wakefulness.”

North Korea reportedly told a U.S. official that Otto contracted botulism and slipped intothe coma after taking a sleeping pill. The country said they released the college student on “humanitarian grounds.”

RELATED VIDEO: Otto Warmbier ‘Fought to Stay Alive’ in North Korean Prison, His Father Says

His father, Fred Warmbier, broke down during a press conference Thursday while talking about his son.

“Otto, I love you and I’m so crazy about you, I’m so glad you’re home, you are such a great guy,” he said. “My family has been rock solid throughout this, we have supported one another.”

Back in 2013, Warmbier’s graduation speech displayed his love of school and community when he spoke about his attempts to find the perfect quote to sum up their high school class — and was shocked when he found it while watching the series finale of The Office and heard a phrase uttered by actor Ed Helms.

“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them,” Warmbier says, quoting Helms’ character, Andy Bernard.

“To me, that one sentence completely captures the feeling of this graduation,” he says. “This is our season finale. This is the end of one great show, but just the beginning to hundreds of new spin-offs.”

Later, Warmbier ended his speech on an equally wistful note.

“This isn’t our last day together as Wyoming’s High School class of 2013. Tomorrow morning we will all belong to another class, another job or another city. No matter where we go or what we do, though, we will always have this group here … We’ll have the support of all of these people around us. We’ve have the knowledge we gained as a group. And we’ll have the reruns, the memories we created to be played over and over again.”

8 Things Every Broadway Fan Should Watch, Read Or See Before The Tonys

Still deciding whether to forego rent this month and see Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!”? Is your obsession with Ben Platt starting to verge on unhealthy? Were you put on this earth to see Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon swap roles every night in “The Little Foxes”?

Well, fear not, theater fans, because the Tony Awards are upon us, with host Kevin Spacey leading the festivities this year on CBS. The stars of stage and screen (alert: Cate Blanchett will be in attendance) will gather in New York City on Sunday night to celebrate the stellar year in theater.

This Broadway season took us everywhere, from working-class Pennsylvania in Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning play “Sweat” to inside the hearts of a fractured family facing the HIV/AIDS crisis in “Falsettos.” Also, though he may not be nominated, but now is a good time as ever to thank the theater gods for casting Jake Gyllenhaal in “Sunday in the Park with George.”

So whether you’re a diehard fan or just tuning into this whole Broadway thing, it’s time to do your homework and check out some theater #content from around the internet about the shows nominated this year. 

And for those “Hamilton” fanatics, yes, the Tonys still happen when the musical isn’t nominated, but, rest assured, Lin-Manuel Miranda will be there.  

 

“Dear Evan Hansen” (Best Musical)

From the minds of “La La Land” songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, “Dear Evan Hansen” has won over audiences (and Hollywood) thanks to a career-defining performance from Ben Platt and catchy ballads that tug at the heartstrings. Watch Platt and co-star Laura Dreyfuss’ performance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” below. 

“Sweat” (Best Play)

The early favorite to pick up the award for Best Play this Sunday, Pulitzer winner “Sweat” is the most politIcally relevant of the bunch, exploring the lives of factory workers in a small Pennsylvanian city. HuffPost recently interviewed playwright Lynn Nottage about what the play says about Trump’s America.

Nottage is also working on a companion piece titled “Floyd,” which will … twist … be a comedy. 

“The Little Foxes” (Best Revival of a Play)

Laura Linney. Cynthia Nixon. Period piece. Need we say more? Set in a small town in Alabama circa 1900, both deliver tour de force performances and then switch roles on the subsequent night. They’re also close friends offstage, and brought the fun to “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” earlier this year.

“Falsettos” (Best Revival of a Musical)

We cried and then we cried some more. This musical revival about an imperfect family struggling to stay together in the wake of a divorce and a father’s coming out was a standout this season. The cast is slated to perform at the Tonys this Sunday, so read this comprehensive piece from BuzzFeed about why the show means so much to the LGBT community and how it’s more timely than ever. 

“Hello, Dolly!” (Best Revival of a Musical)

As turn-of-the-century matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, Bette Midler has been earning rave reviews for her long-awaited musical comeback to Broadway. The glorious cast album was recently released and, trust us, your ears will immediately thank you for this musical theater goodness.

Also, the movie adaptation starring Barbra Streisand is currently streaming on Netflix, so what’s the holdup?  

“Jitney” (Best Revival of a Play)

From the mind of August Wilson, “Jitney” follows a group of drivers of unofficial and unlicensed taxi drivers ― called “jitneys” ―who transport residents of Pittsburgh Hill District in the 1970s because others refuse to do so. If you haven’t seen Wilson’s best known play “Fences,” the powerful film adaptation starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington was released last year and also explores the experience and struggle of working class black Americans. 

“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” (Best Musical)

This interactive musical needs to be seen to be believed and it’s far too complicated to explain (seriously, it’s adapted from a section of War & Peace), so check out the cast, including Josh Groban, performing two songs on the “Today Show.”

“The Present” (Cate Blanchett for Best Actress)

No one plays morally complex women like Cate Blanchett, and the Oscar winner is in fine form in this surprisingly modern adaptation of an unfinished Chekhov play. Directed by the actress’ husband Andrew Upton, the standout scene features a drunk Blanchett pouring vodka all over herself, as she dances on a dinner table. Watch his interview with the cast below, and for more vodka and Blanchett, check out “Blue Jasmine.” 

The Tony Awards air at 8 p.m. June 11 on CBS.

WATCH: Celebrate World Ocean Day by Watching this Precious Penguin Rescue

Today, June 8, is World Ocean Day, a collaborative effort by numerous aquariums and conservationists worldwide to raise awareness about the pollution clogging our oceans and what we can do to protect these amazing environments and the animals that call them home.

Two of the aquariums who are part of this important initiative are the Georgia Aquarium and Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium. As part of their ongoing work to make life better for the ocean’s inhabitants, the two facilities recently teamed up for a penguin release in South Africa.

In the footage above, provided by the Georgia Aquarium, you can see the magical moment a group of rehabilitated penguins are reintroduced to their home waters. The birds were found as chicks, stranded on the coast of South Africa, where the penguin population has taken a devastating hit due to numerous environmental factors.

To help protect these now-endangered birds, the Georgia Aquarium and Shedd Aquarium saved these abandoned animals and took care of them until they were strong enough to set out on their own.

WATCH: Family Learns Sacramento Shelter is Full, Drives 16 Hours to Adopt a Dog

Maybe you’ve heard this before, but it’s worth repeating: For every pet you adopt from a shelter, you’re saving two lives — the life of the animal you’ve adopted, and another who fills its space at the animal shelter.

One Canadian family went out of their way to save two lives at Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter, which announced on Facebook on May 31 that it was “extremely crowded” and had run out of space for animals.

“Joyce had been at the shelter for almost two months, sadly watching people pass her by for other dogs,” says the caption for this Facebook video, which has been viewed over 76,000 times and shared over 2,000. “But when this family heard we were full, they drove all the way from British Columbia, Canada, to save a life.”

The lucky pooch they chose was Joyce, who the shelter describes as a “perfect fit for them.” Watch as the pup meets her forever family, receives belly rubs, and finally waves goodbye to shelter life as she drives off into the sunset in a car, on her way home.

“This was her past,” says the video, “but her future looks amazing!”

If you’re searching for a forever friend, visit the Front Street Animal Shelter, where adoptions are free throughout the month of June to help as many pets as possible.

Watch Jerry Seinfeld Reject A Hug From Kesha Three Times In a Row

You know the old adage never meet your idols? Well, you probably shouldn’t hug them either. 

Pop star Kesha learned both these lessons the hard way (and on camera) when she approached Jerry Seinfeld on the red carpet at National Night of Laughter and Song on Monday. The comedian was in the middle of an interview, when the “We R Who We R” singer crashed stage left, asking for a hug not once, not twice, but three times. 

“I’m Kesha. I love you so much,” she gushed. “Can I give you a hug?”

“No thanks,” Seinfeld repeated over and over again, backing away from the singer before she released a moan of pure awkwardness and scampered off. 

“I don’t know who that was,” Seinfeld told the interviewer, who informed the star  it was Kesha. “Well, I wish her the best.”

Somewhere in the greater Los Angeles area, Kesha softly strums her guitar as she single tears it to an acoustic version of the “Seinfeld” theme song.

Watch This Disabled Burlesque Performer Own Her Sexuality

Jacqueline Boxx is a burlesque performer, dancer and cat-owner. Oh, and she also happens to be disabled. 

The Scene recently featured Boxx in a short documentary where the burlesque dancer discussed her love for performing and how she deals with her disability on and off stage. 

“As a disabled person, I have a body that isn’t often celebrated,” Boxx told The Scene. “A lot of times it feels like disability means that your body should be hidden. Like I shouldn’t be pleased and happy and feel sexual as a disabled woman.”

When Boxx was in college, she was diagnosed with a rare and incurable syndrome called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which makes the joints in her body dislocate easily. She had always been a dancer, and was actually teaching dance at the time of her diagnosis. Boxx had to stop dancing and accepted the fact that she would never perform again.

It wasn’t until a few years later that she went to a burlesque show and remembered how much she missed dancing.   

“I went to a burlesque show and I thought how much I missed being there,” Boxx told The Scene. “I remembered the glitter and the rhinestones and how powerful I felt; and I thought ‘Man, it would feel really nice right now to feel powerful.’” 

So, Boxx started choreographing a burlesque performance ― from a wheelchair. She quickly found out that performing burlesque made her look and feel damn good.  

“When I’m performing I am showing that I love and accept my body as it is,” Boxx told The Scene. “The way in which burlesque is so in-your-face-aggressive about owning your body is inspiring. I think that the time has come for that to include disabled bodies.”

Boxx hopes viewers take away two things from the video. For disabled people, she hopes they can “start viewing their own bodies as sensual and sexual and confident.”

And for everyone else? “I don’t necessarily want to be know as the disabled burlesque performer,” Boxx said. “I want to be known as a burlesque performer who is a disabled women who lives authentically and encourages others to live authentically.”
