Kardashian West found out about Johnson and her story by way of social media in 2017. The sixtysomething Tennessee woman had been sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years without the possibility of parole in 1996 on nonviolent drug charges.
According to a representative for Kardashian West, “Kim was moved to take action.” The reality star and entrepreneur even paid a trip to the Oval Office to ask President Trump to grant Johnson clemency. Johnson was freed on June 6, 2018. 
Now Johnson is making her modeling debut.

Women of NoHo Organize Event to Support Planned Parenthood

KEEPING THINGS LOCAL: Like many small business owners that share a block or a neighborhood, the Women of NoHo have gotten to know each  other and have rallied together to support various causes.
Designer Maria Cornejo, one of the group’s founding members, has planned to host an event at her Zero + Maria Cornejo Bleecker Street store June 18 to support Planned Parenthood, which has an outpost right across the street. The organization’s president and chief executive officer Laura McQuade is on board to cohost the event, which is expected to attract about 300 people including Christy Turlington and Carolyn Murphy. Members of Women of NoHo including Jane Mayle of Maison Mayle, Ulla Johnson, Padma Lakshmi, Anna Sheffield, Rachel Comey and Jill Platner have donated items for a benefit raffle. T-shirts are also being sold to support the cause.
Cornejo and fellow founding members Platner and Il Buco’s Donna Lennard will hold a group meeting Wednesday. But it’s not as though a stenographer will be recording minutes.

BABE Launches for Networking-minded Women Execs

Rosenthal & Rosenthal Inc., the Accessories Council, and the LHB Group have launched a networking group for women executives, business owners and entrepreneurs, called BABE.
That’s short for “Bad Ass Business Executives.” So far, the group has nearly 100 women business leaders from the food, fashion, accessories, beauty, wellness and financial services sectors. The group is geared to facilitate connections and foster collaborations through gatherings, workshops and other events.
“Women lead only 14 percent of major brands and only 4.8 percent of Fortune 500 companies,” said Cassie Rosenthal, senior vice president of Rosenthal & Rosenthal, a factoring, asset-based lending and purchase order financing firm. “I wanted to actively do something to help move women-run businesses forward. The motivation behind BABE is to create a different kind of collaborative platform that unites women across multiple industries and generations, and gives them access to real resources to help them succeed. BABE is about fostering leadership at a high level.”
The group kicked off on March 13 with 40 female executives at the Beatrice Inn in Manhattan and will host a series of invitation-only events through the summer in New York and Los Angeles, culminating with a panel discussion at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Men’s Wear Brand Fisher + Baker Targets Women for Minneapolis Event

Fisher + Baker is a men’s brand, but that didn’t stop the company from targeting women for an event at its Minneapolis headquarters earlier this month.
More than 80 women showed up at the Fisher + Baker studio for a Sip and Shop event, its first initiative targeted to females.
The event also served as a fund-raiser for Minnesota Wild’s Jason Zucker’s #Give16 Campaign, which was created by Zucker and his wife, Carly, to build the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.
Fisher + Baker donated $ 2,500 to the campaign from the event.
“Women are powerful consumers and are influential in the brand and style decisions of the men in their lives,” said Mike Arbeiter, Fisher + Baker’s chief executive officer and president. “By targeting female consumers as part of our brand engagement strategy, we are building awareness with a community that has a strong influence on men’s wardrobes.”
At the event, the women browsed through the brand’s classic styles of outerwear, sweaters and shirts while enjoying wine and cheese. Among the most popular items was the Lexington Vest, which retails for $ 298.

Janie Bryant, the Emmy-winning costume designer, who is best known for designing costumes for “Mad Men” and “Deadwood,” and has also designed for “The Last Tycoon,” “The Romanoffs,” and “It,” among other TV and film projects, is stepping out on her own.
She has designed a new collection called JXB, which is aimed at the curvy customer. The direct-to-consumer brand will launch later this month at Brandjxb.com and will feature sizes 12 to 24.  It will follow a seasonless model and will have releases of core essentials and new statement pieces every six to eight weeks.
“I really wanted to create the collection for the curvy girl because I felt that there was a huge gap in the market for luxury clothing for sizes 12 to 24,” said Bryant, executive vice president and creative director of JXB, on a visit to New York.
In making this decision, Bryant said she was inspired by women around the country to whom she has spoken while doing a book tour for her style guide “The Fashion File” and emceeing fashion shows.
“There would always be Q&A’s afterward, and the curvy girls would ask, ‘How do I look like Joan [the “Mad Men” character portrayed by Christina Hendricks]?

Little Women Cast Member Sentenced in DUI Crash That Killed Coast Guard Member Picking Up Wife for Her Birthday

Former Little Women: Atlanta cast member Melissa Hancock was sentenced Wednesday to 16 years in prison after she pleaded guilty earlier this year for her role in a fatal car crash, PEOPLE confirms.

Hancock, 26, admitted to four crimes in connection with the November wreck, court records show: aggravated involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence, driving the wrong way and failing to obey a highway sign.

On Nov. 5, 2017, about 2 a.m., Virginia State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash involving a wrong way driver in Virginia Beach, a police spokesperson previously told PEOPLE.

Hancock was driving westbound on I-264 in the eastbound lanes when her 2011 Cadillac struck Daniel Dill’s 2009 Mazda head on.

Her “blood alcohol content tested at 0.112 percent two hours after the crash,” authorities told told CBS News.

Dill, a longtime member of the U.S. Coast Guard, was transported to Virginia Beach General Hospital where he died the following day from severe blunt force trauma to his neck and torso, according to the Virginian-Pilot. He was 29.

Dill’s wife, Natalie, had been celebrating her birthday with friends, Dill’s sister, Kelly Vazquez, told PEOPLE at the time. She said Dill arranged to pick his wife up so that “she didn’t drink and drive.”

• 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.

Dill was en route to get Natalie when Hancock hit his car.

“He was the type of man who would do anything and everything to help others,” Vazquez told PEOPLE last year of her brother. “Just recently he had returned from Puerto Rico where he was assisting with the hurricane relief efforts.”

At her sentencing on Wednesday, Hancock, who appeared on season 2 of Lifetime’s Little Women: Atlanta, described her remorse to Dill’s family and friends.

“Words cannot express my sympathy,” she said, according to the Virginian-Pilot. “I can’t believe what I have done. I could never mean to hurt anyone.” (Reached by PEOPLE, her attorney did not immediately provide a comment on her sentencing.)

Dill’s wife, his friend and five of his family members reportedly read victim impact statements about his character and the loss they suffered.

“He and Natalie made all the right decisions that night,” Dill’s friend Aaron Goh told the judge, the Virginian-Pilot reports. “She made all the wrong decisions. And yet they’re the ones suffering the consequences.”

Cannes 2018: ‘Women in Motion’ Young Talent Award Goes to Carla Simón

PRIZE MOMENT: With the Cannes Film Festival in full swing, Kering on Friday revealed its Young Talent Award for the fourth edition of “Women in Motion” program will go to Catalan director Carla Simón, hand-picked by actress, producer and director, Salma Hayek Pinault.
Kering chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault will present the prize at a dinner hosted by the luxury group during the festival on May 13, joined by the film festival’s president and general delegate, Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux. The award comes with funding worth 50,000 euros to go toward her filmmaking projects.
Simón’s first feature film, “Summer 1993,” based on the story of a six-year-old child who loses her mother to AIDS, filmed from the child’s point of view, was met with critical acclaim and went on to represent Spain at the 2018 Oscars.
Simón has also made numerous short films including “Born Positive,” “Lipstick” and “Those Little Things,” each of which was selected for international festivals. She is working on her second feature film and teaches cinema students at the Cinema en Curs, ESCAC and Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.
As reported, this year’s main Women in Motion award will go to American film director and screenwriter Patty Jenkins –

Helen Cammock Named Winner of Max Mara Art Prize for Women

ART AWARD: Max Mara has awarded Helen Cammock the Art Prize for women.
The biannual award from the Italian label held in association with Whitechapel Gallery was presented on Monday evening. The judging panel consisted of Iwona Blazwick, director of the Whitechapel Gallery; gallerist Vanessa Carlos; artist Laure Prouvost; collector Marcelle Joseph, and art critic Rachel Spence.
The London-based artist’s work spans across moving image, photography, writing, poetry, spoken word, song, performance, printmaking and installation.
“I have never before experienced a structured opportunity that encompasses travel, research, making and then showing over a sustained period,” said Cammock. “Over the six month residency I’ll find myself in a culture that is new to me, meet practitioners who work in different ways to me and consider how my practice can move into dialogue with new histories. It is an opportunity for space and time to focus on being an artist — this is perhaps the most significant aspect of this prize.”
Cammock’s residency will commence next month and she will travel to several Italian cities including Bologna, Florence, Venice, Rome, Palermo and Reggio Emilia. She plans to explore how emotions are expressed in Italian culture in formats such as opera, classical and folk music, art, poetry, writing

Women for Women International to Host #SheInspiresMe Charity Sale

 CHARITY SALE: A host of designers and brands will donate designer goods for the Women for Women International charity car boot sale, which will take place in London on May 12.

Brita Fernandez Schmidt, executive director for Women for Women International, said she hopes this year’s charity sale will be bigger and better. “Last year we raised over 159,000 pounds, and this year we are able to fit more people and boots,” Schmidt said.
“So I am excited to see how we can beat that and raise funds to help create real change for women survivors of war. Our wonderful committee have opened up their little black books for the event, ensuring that this is the chicest Car Boot Sale ever.

Liberty Inaugurates ‘Women of Liberty’ Campaign in London

HEAR THEM ROAR: Liberty is taking the spirit of International Women’s Day and stretching it across the month of March with a series of activities and projects highlighting female achievers of past and present, and the British suffragettes.
On Thursday, the store unveiled giant portraits shot by Mary McCartney of designers Anya Hindmarch, Katharine Hamnett and Stella Jean; the author Elise Valmorbida; singer Florence Welch; hair-care entrepreneur Loretta De Feo, and Katy Emck, founder of Fine Cell Work, which promotes needlework made by prisoners.
The portraits are featured in the windows of the London store alongside an image of gal-dem, a print and online magazine and creative collective that aims to empower and support creative work among young women of color.
During the month, Liberty will also host talks with women of influence, and sessions with beauty experts and female brand founders who have links with the retailer.
The store has also reinstated Emma Blackmore’s portrait on the shop floor. Blackmore, an accomplished photographer, was Arthur Liberty’s second wife who helped him to bankroll the opening of the Liberty store in 1875.
Liberty has a particular connection to creative and entrepreneurial women, especially in this 100th anniversary year of them winning the right to vote in Britain.

Christian Siriano Dressed 17 Stars at the Oscars: ‘It’s Hard to Say No When You Love These Women So Much’

There may be no busier person in the fashion industry – well, make that the universe – than Christian Siriano. The designer, who got his start 10 years ago on Project Runway, has spent the last few months alone dressing dozens of stars for major red carpets (including 10 at the Golden Globes and 3 at the SAG Awards), putting on a fashion show with a celebrity-studded front row, launching a makeup collection with E.L.F. Cosmetics and keeping up his empire (which includes a Payless shoe line, handbags, eyewear, fragrance and bedding, not to mention custom clothing for Barbie dolls).

And still he somehow managed to find time to create 19 total outfits (two stars got two dresses!) for a host of celebrities on Oscar Sunday, from sweeping ballgowns to statement-making suits. We rounded up almost all the looks in one place and caught up with the designer to hear more about the “wild” process of creating distinct looks for a group of women that included Oscar nominees and winners, activists, Olympians and performers.

And though 19 looks were worn, Siriano says there were still more custom outfits that didn’t make an appearance on the carpet: “We sent out so many gowns this season, it was nuts,” he told PeopleStyle. “We made a few more custom looks that didn’t end up on the carpet so we probably would have had about 22 total if that would have happened. It’s hard to say no when you love these women so much and want to support them.”

Whoopi Goldberg got Siriano’s night off on the right foot, so to speak, when she praised the designer for creating a beautiful teal floral gown for her that prioritized her comfort – right down to her combat boots (“I told her I did not mind,” he explains). He also dressed Best Supporting Actress nominee Laurie Metcalf in blush sequins, Kelly Ripa in a ballgown with a green-and-pink bustled bow, author and activist Janet Mock in a sequin and chiffon tank dress with train and Olympic skier Lindsay Vonn in a sexy sheer tulle number (which had sleeves attached mere moments before she hit the red carpet). (Not pictured but also in Siriano: Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.)

The designer says the longest lead time he had on some of the gowns was about three weeks, while others (including Vonn’s and Mock’s, above, and Janelle Monae’s, below) were created in two days. Some actresses (including Metcalf) had several options to choose from and picked the winner during the final week of fittings. “It has been wild,” he says. “The studio is a war zone with fabric all over the place and custom patterns for so many actresses. Right before the Oscars we just showed our largest collection to date with 72 looks celebrating my 10 year anniversary so I’m not sure how my team survived! But we did it and feel really proud.”

RELATED PHOTOS: See the Red Carpet’s Most Showstopping Styles!

Siriano also created custom gowns for singer Keala Settle, who performed the nominated song “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman. She walked the red carpet in a peach gown embellished with crystal vines and brought the house down in a cornflower blue V-neck number with iridescent sparkle detailing. Settle, who also wore a Siriano design to the Golden Globes, wrote that she felt “honored and blessed” on this Oscars red carpet. (Settle’s performance was a highlight for the designer, he says: “Keala Settle was sick a few days before and did even see her dresses until the Thursday before and she had rehearsals that day. When she hit that stage and sang her butt off in that gown, it was a great moment.”

Siriano’s night didn’t slow down once the Oscars ended. His designs were seen on at least 10 more stars (including Mock, who changed into another of his looks), all as individual as the stars wearing them.

From left, Busy Phillips wore a tank dress with steel blue sparkly skirt; Amy Adams wore a black gown with structured shoulders and a neckline cutout; Janelle Monae picked a lipstick-red peplum suit with crystal epaulets and train; Patricia Clarkson wore a sapphire sequin spaghetti-strap number with flared hemline; Alicia Silverstone selected a high-neck highlighter-pink column.

RELATED PHOTOS: 100+ Beautiful Outfits You Didn’t See (but Can’t Miss) from the Oscars Afterparties!

Holland Taylor wore a suit of Siriano’s design; Rachel Bloom selected a midnight-blue velvet column dress; Abbie Cornish donned a long-sleeve gown with full floral skirt; Jessica Williams stunned in a black silhouette-hugging strapless gown with large bronze ruffle down the side, and Sarah Silverman wore a dress with peplum and mermaid hem. And you’ll notice that each of the stars, who range in age from 32 (Monae) to 75 (Taylor) has a distinctive style and personality that Siriano works to capture in his red carpet designs.

“It is hard and challenging , but that is actually my favorite part,” he says. “Just working with so many different women and their stylists and they all want to look and feel different. So I try to make them happy but also keep my voice as a designer alive.”

Siriano has long garnered praise for dressing every age, skin tone and body type, working with stars (perhaps most notably Leslie Jones) who have previously felt marginalized in the fashion industry to design gorgeous, just-right-for-them ensembles – and in doing so, he’s gained a huge, vocal (again, notably Leslie Jones) and star-studded fan base. And while Siriano is a huge fan of the recent drive to talk about causes on the red carpet, he’s also adamant that the artistry, hard work and, yes, business sense of the fashion industry continues to be appreciated as well – a fact proven further by his Instagram of the team that made the 17 celebrity dressings possible.

And though Siriano needs a vacation about as badly as you do after reading about his crazy 2018 so far (“Maybe a beach in Mexico?” he suggests hopefully), he says the rewards were worth all the hard work. “Getting sweet notes from so many of the women was a great moment,” he says. “Getting a text that says ‘I feel so great tonight’ is a designer’s dream.”

Universal Standard Broadens Its Reach With Performancewear Geared for Large-Size Women

GETTING IN THE GAME: Major athletic labels like Nike and Lululemon aren’t the only ones developing performance-oriented collections for large-size women: Universal Standard officially launches its first activewear collection today.
Convinced that the estimated 100 million American women who are above a size 14 deserve the same workout options as their straight-sizes peers, the direct-to-consumer e-commerce company has developed GAME by Universal Standard. Alex Waldman, Universal Standard’s cofounder and chief operating officer, said, “This consumer is so consistently sidestepped in terms of quality and performance, that she is in a continual state of waiting to be taken seriously. We knew what was missing not only from the constant stream of feedback from this consumer — but from being this consumer.”
With an increasing number of brands competing in the category, the sports and fitness clothing business is expected to reach $ 231.7 billion in worldwide sales by 2024, according to a report by Global Industry Analysts Inc. Even UFC octagon girl Arianny Celeste, an HPE Clothing fan, has gotten in the game with a new fitness app “The Ultimate Body.”
Instead of fast-fashion styles like cotton leggings, oversized T-shirts and neon-colored activewear, Universal Standard has created full-length leggings, bodysuits, runner tanks and power Ts

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Women in Black

The women will wear black.
But why?
The stated purpose behind the call for women to dress in black at tonight’s Golden Globes Awards is to protest sexual harassment in entertainment and other industries. It’s part of Time’s Up, the sweeping anti-harassment program spearheaded by many of Hollywood’s most powerful women. The initiative includes seeding a legal fund to benefit low-income victims of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace.
From the moment the first Harvey Weinstein story broke in The New York Times in October, this awards season was destined to be like no other. The Globes are the first of the major awards, and the hours-long, on-camera parade to the mics couldn’t happen without acknowledgement that the entertainment industry has been rocked to its core and forced into a new, in-progress way of conducting business.
But why the de facto dress code? Does asking women to converge to a visual norm strengthen their message about forcing change? Or does it infringe on the embrace of diversity, restricting to a degree the creativity involved in dress selection? Absent a clearly articulated explanation (and I haven’t found one), a few “whys” seem plausible. Sartorial sameness has long been employed as a tool of group protest, in photos

Porter, Net-a-porter’s print magazine, on Wednesday held its second annual Incredible Women Gala at NeueHouse West Hollywood, in association with Estée Lauder. Hosted by editor in chief Lucy Yeomans and Universal chairman Donna Langley, the event drew Charlize Theron, Brie Larson, Elizabeth Banks, Mary J. Blige, Melanie Griffith, Raquel Welch, Kate Bosworth and more.
The Incredible Women list, now in its third year, grew out of a cover line on Porter’s first issue. It has since spawned a talk series that began with Christy Turlington Burns in 2014 and has included American Ballet Theater principal dancer Misty Copeland, film director Sofia Coppola and Serpentine chief executive officer Yana Peel. The first gala was held last year in London at the V&A Museum.
Partnering with Langley, who was profiled in the magazine in the past, made sense since this year’s list of 50 women was focused on the entertainment industry. The timing of this year’s gala comes when women in the industry have banded together in support of speaking out against sexual harassment. The magazine commissioned women including Copeland, Larson and the organizers of the Women’s March, Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, to write open letters touching upon crucial issues facing women in

In honor of the “International Day of the Girl,” Haddon joined the leader, his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, and others who have “generous spirits, had a fierce intellect and deep passion for women’s issues” in a roundtable discussion.

Girl Power! Mel B Talks Raising Daughters to Be ‘Confident, Strong Women’ – and What They Think of Her Spice Girls Music

Between raising three daughters, managing a busy career and finding time to hang out with her former Spice Girls bandmates, Melanie “Mel B” Brown won’t be slowing down any time soon — but she takes it all in stride.

“You learn something every day when you’re a mom — especially when you’re a working mom,” the America’s Got Talent judge tells PEOPLE. “You’re constantly trying to balance work, being a mom, making sure you’re there for the school runs and dinners and home-cooked food.”

Luckily, the age range among her daughters — Madison, 6 on Friday, Angel Iris, 10, and Phoenix Chi, 18 — often comes in handy. “Thank God I’ve got an 18-year-old babysitter on tap when she can be bothered to babysit,” says Brown, 42, adding, “My kids are great. They’re all very different.”

Brown describes youngest daughter Madison — whom she shares custody of with estranged husband Stephen Belafonte amid their divorce — as the “snuggler.”

“Madison is just stuck by my side,” she says. “Madison will meditate with me and play with all of my crystals, and she’s really sweet.”

Angel, on the other hand, isn’t so outwardly affectionate. “I need to beg Angel for a hug,” Brown explains. “Angel is very much in her own little world and very creative with the computer and making things and decorating her room.”

When it comes to Phoenix, she jokes, “I’m thinking I know what she does half the time, but she’s a good girl.”

Though her daughters couldn’t be any more different, Brown is hoping to raise them all with the same principles.

“All you can give them is love, affection and attention and they go on their merry way,” she says. “I hope I’m raising three confident, strong women on the inside who are appreciative, respectful and supportive of other women.”

Plus, they all share a stellar repertoire of Spice Girls and ’90s era hits — whether they like it or not.

“I constantly play music around them and Phoenix was on tour with me,” she says. “One of them calls it ‘old people’s music.’ like, ‘What are you talking about? It’s ’90s pop. It’s the best genre of music ever.’ ”

She continues, “That vibe is brilliant. I listen to my own music all the time and not just my own solos, but Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys — I’m a ’90s R&B pop girl. I’m always going to be like that.”

Though Brown says she spent time with her Spice Girls bandmate Emma Bunton (a.k.a. Baby Spice) at a bar after work recently, she says that unfortunately “there isn’t” a reunion tour on the way.

“I think everyone is pretty locked into what they’re doing. Everybody is busy, and everyone has families,” she says. “But I would be the first one to be up there!”
