Young Duchesses Don Jenny Packham, Ralph Lauren at Wimbledon

GAME, SET, MATCH: The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex attended Wimbledon together for the first time on Saturday afternoon to watch the women’s singles final.
Cheers greeted the Duchesses as they took their place in the royal box to watch Serena Williams, finalist and a close friend of Meghan Markle, play Angelique Kerber. Kerber eventually won in two sets and took home the title.
Markle traded in her bateau-neck dresses for a more casual look. She wore wide-leg cream trousers with a blue and white striped shirt by Ralph Lauren. The American label is the official outfitter of the event, supplying a range of uniforms for Wimbledon.
Middleton wore a polka dot cream dress with ruched details by Jenny Packham, a go-to label of the royal, and nude suede heels.

Milano Moda Graduate Continues to Support Young Designers

MILAN — On Friday, the Italian Chamber of Fashion marked the opening of Milan Fashion Week with the fourth edition of Milano Moda Graduate, which continues to promote young designers.
The show featured collections from eight designers selected among students of Italian fashion schools including, among others, IED, Istituto Marangoni, NABA and Domus Academy.
Camera Nazionale della Moda invited a jury presided over by Renzo Rosso, founder of Diesel parent group OTB, to evaluate the candidates and assign the award. Other members of the jury included Camera president Carlo Capasa; Anna Zegna; Marco Lau, merchandising manager at Harvey Nichols Hong Kong, and Alessandra Carra, chief executive officer of Agnona, among others.
Mauro Muzio Medaglia of Accademia Costume e Moda scooped up the CNMI Fashion Trust award for best collection with a women’s wear lineup inspired by the Forties and referencing the style of Peggy Guggenheim, featuring see-through dresses nipped at the waist in pale shades of pink and mint.

PETA Calls Out SeaWorld Performers Daughtry, Eli Young Band and More for Supporting Animal Abuse

SeaWorld has endured a scandalous few years, but the problems show no signs of stopping.

The company recently announced the line-up for their Seven Seas Food Festival, which will be hosted across multiple parks. Among the musicians slated to perform at the festival are Daughtry, the Eli Young Band, The Jacksons, Huey Lewis and the News and Chris Young.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is urging all of these performers to back out of the festival and cut ties with SeaWorld, a company, PETA says, that abuses animals for the sake of entertainment.

“Only someone with a heart of ice would endorse SeaWorld’s animal prisons,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “PETA advises these performers to skip this sad spectacle or risk hemorrhaging fans just as SeaWorld is hemorrhaging visitors.”

If the any of the artists back out, they will join a long list of musicians who have cancelled planned SeaWorld performances, like the Barenaked Ladies, Martina McBride, and Willie Nelson, and an even longer list of stars who support PETA’s fight against SeaWorld.

Start ‘Em Young! Chrissy Teigen gets Daughter Luna to Help Clean Up a Spill

Chrissy Teigen is already teaching her daughter Luna Simone one of life’s most important lessons: when you make a mess, you have to clean it up.

On Friday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model — who recently announced she was pregnant with her second child — shared a series of videos on Snapchat of her daughter cleaning up some water that got spilled on the floor.

“It’s just water,” Teigen, 31, told her 19-month-old daughter. “Can you help me?”

Bending down with a purple towel in hand, Luna followed her mother’s instructions and soaked up the excess moisture. “Thank you,” Teigen said.

Later, Teigen shared a video of her helpful daughter eating dropped food in front of the TV which she captioned: “the greatest age.”

On Tuesday, Teigen announced that she and her husband John Legend were expecting their second child.

In an adorable Instagram video, Teigen can be heard asking her daughter “Luna, what’s in here?” as her daughter pointed at her mom’s stomach and proclaimed there was a “baby” inside.

“It’s John’s,” Teigen cheekily captioned the video, to which Legend, 38, replied that “Maury will have the final word on this.”

Just a couple days before the big news, Legend told PEOPLE he and Teigen had been “working on” baby No. 2. Opening up to InStyle about her journey to motherhood via in vitro fertilization, Teigen explained she and her Grammy-winning husband started with 20 embryos and narrowed the number down to three after screenings.

Sources also told PEOPLE the superstar couple have been hoping to expand their family for quite some time.

“They have been planning for this for a long time. Chrissy is really excited to finally share the news,” an insider told PEOPLE exclusively about the stars.

“They are so excited to make Luna a big sister,” said another source. “They think Luna will do a great job with the baby and they’re really happy to be expanding their family.”

Kenzo Taps Three Young Filmmakers for Season Zero Campaign

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION: Kenzo’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are known for their experimental approach to campaign films.
This season, for the launch of their Kenzo Season Zero collection, the design duo embarked on an adventure with three young filmmakers – Mati Diop, Baptist Penetticobra and Eduardo Williams – whose work they felt encapsulates the theme of the season: “a singular relationship with the world.” Their brief: “How do we inhabit Earth today in 2017?”
Described in a press release from the house as “mixed, expatriated, nomads,” Williams hails from Argentina, Diop is French and Penetticobra is French but L.A.-based.
Williams’ work, “Tzzd,” follows the dream of an elf who nods off in the metro in Buenos Aires, winding through three countries and two continents and moving from cool to warm colors, with locations ranging from a Buenos Aires fruit and vegetable shop to a dark cave.
Diop’s film, “Olympus,” captures her brother, model Gard Diop, bicycling through Paris in moonlight, and Penetticobra’s “Untitled (Juice),” presented in a vertical format, stars Karmesha Clark playing a modern-day, black Mona Lisa rapping about orange juice.
The films can be viewed on international streaming platform lecinemaclub.com, ending Nov. 9.

Glamorous yet authentic, Bonnie Young delivered another highly wearable, polished collection that combined a discreet, sophisticated elegance with a sense of relaxed and practical comfort. Pools and rose gardens served as inspiration for the lineup, though the flowers ended up stealing the spotlight. Micro roses were printed on a fluid chiffon dress, which looked delicate and feminine yet graphic and sleek, while their macro version gave a joyful appeal to a clean-lined jumpsuit. Athletic references amplified the sense of dynamic sophistication. Drawstrings embellished ethereal silk frocks cut in loose silhouettes, a hoodie anorak was paired with a cotton lace sheath dress, while mesh was crafted into a floral parka with utilitarian pockets. Striped shirts added a mannish feel while sharp-cut pants and matching soft silk blouses in unconventional brown denim equaled quintessential urban chic.

Young Royals Continue Poland Visit

ROYAL VISIT: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their tour of Poland on Tuesday.
The royal duo visited the Stutthof concentration camp, and placed stones at the camp’s Jewish memorial — a custom honoring the dead. Some 110,000 people were imprisoned there and as many as 65,000 died at the camp, which was built in 1939.
The couple toured the camp, saw a gas chamber and viewed personal items that were taken from prisoners, such as shoes and clothes. They also met with Nazi concentration camp survivors Manfred Goldberg and Zigi Shipper, who returned to the camp for the first time.
Kate Middleton wore a floral skirt and top by Erdem.

Ariana Grande Surprises Young Fans Injured In Manchester Attack

Ariana Grande brought a much-needed smile on Friday to the faces of some of her young fans who were injured in the Manchester terror attack.

The pop star paid a surprise visit to youngsters at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, who continue to be treated following the May 22 suicide bombing following her concert at the Manchester Arena.

Grande spoke with and hugged the children, and posed for photographs. 

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

The singer spent some time talking to nurses:

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

She left some gifts:

And she also penned a heartfelt note to one of her fans:

She surprised those she couldn’t visit with video chats:

Adam Harrison, whose daughter Lily sustained spinal injuries in the attack, said she was “on cloud nine” following Grande’s visit.

This means more to us than all the amazing things people have done this week,” said Peter Mann, whose daughter Jaden was also injured in the blast.

“So happy she came I could burst. Never seen Jaden so happy; even cried again myself,” Mann told the BBC.

Grande made the hospital visit soon after returning to Manchester for the first time since the May 22 attack, which killed 22 people and injured dozens more.

It came ahead of her all-star “One Love Manchester” benefit concert at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium in Greater Manchester on Sunday. 

Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and Pharrell Williams are all set to perform. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross’ “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.”

New Fictional Series Tackles Race Through The Lens Of A Young Harlem Girl

Producers Riley Wilson and Lisa Cortés are tapping into the mind of a 9-year-old for their new series on racism, gentrification and black girl magic, “Little Apple.”

The web series, which fuses sci-fi and comedy, takes its name from the show’s main character, an omniscient Harlem bred girl who goes by the name Little Apple.

As the young Harlemnite, played by Milan Williams, becomes increasingly cognizant of race, gender and class-based hierarchies in society, she develops a resistance to the systems which perpetuate inequality. 

But in order for the show to go on, Wilson and the show’s crew are in need of a little financial aid. According to the series’ Kickstarter page, if the team doesn’t meet their goal of raising $ 15,000 for the show’s production by June 24, we won’t get to witness Little Apple come into her wokeness. 

“Little Apple will tell the dramatically witty story of a young magical black girl’s transcendence into consciousness — in a society that, for all intents and purposes, is anti-black and anti-female,” the page reads. 

And according to show’s press release, Williams real-life persona doesn’t differ much from that of Little Apple’s.

“The first time I read the papers, I was like gentrifi-what?” Williams said in a press release for “Little Apple.” I didn’t know what it meant. I was like, mom what does gentrification mean? And I said it wrong.”

“At first I didn’t know what it was and then I started looking into it and now I’m like ohhhh,” she said. “Now I can’t get it out of my mind.”

For Wilson, who writes, directs and executive produces the show alongside Cortes, Little Apple’s awareness of what’s taking place around her is commonplace for adolescents. 

“What’s great about the show is that it’s from the perspective of a little girl,” the Howard alumnus said in a press release. “And people often forget that kids have direct access to content and media just as much as adults. They know what’s going on in the country and many times the world. People just don’t engage with them.”

Cortés, who executive produced the Academy-Award winning film “Precious,” seconds Wilson’s belief about the potential of young minds. 

“The marriage of entertainment for young people coupled with discourse around social justice is especially timely,” she said in the release.

Bono Has A Message For Young Christian Artists

U2 musician Bono has spent years reading and learning from the poetry of the Psalms, a book of the Bible that contains ancient hymns.

If there’s one thing Bono has realized from his studies, it’s that art always requires honesty.

During a conversation with Fuller Studio, the rock star spoke at length about the intersection of faith and art, particularly art that is produced by Christians.

“I would really like this conversation to unlock some artists,” the singer, a devout Christian, said. “Because I think there are trapped artists and I’d like them to be untrapped.”

In a previous dialogue with Fuller Studio released April 2016, Bono compared the Psalms with contemporary Christian worship music ― and found modern-day praise music to be sorely lacking. He argued that some contemporary worship music lacks the range of raw emotions that’s contained within the Psalms. 

In the new video series, released this April, Bono revisited the topic with Fuller Theological Seminary’s professor David O. Taylor. He offered further insights into how deeply the Psalms have influenced his life and his music. 

Before taping the new interview, Bono said he reread the Songs of Ascents ― a series of Psalms that were possibly sung by Jewish pilgrims as they made a trip to Jerusalem. Within those few chapters, Bono said he found songs about peace, protection, laughter, hubris, rage, tears, humility, and unity. 

“Okay, that’s just Songs of Ascent. They had utility. And why is it in Christian music, I can’t find them?”

He also critiqued the impulse to label music as “Christian,” or not Christian.

“Creation screams God’s name. So you don’t have to stick a sign on every tree,” Bono said, suggesting that just because a song isn’t explicitly called a “Christian” song, that doesn’t mean it isn’t spiritual in nature. 

“This has really, really got to stop,” he said.  “I want to hear a song about the breakdown in your marriage, I want to hear songs of justice, I want to hear rage at injustice and I want to hear a song so good that it makes people want to do something about the subject.”

The musician also shared his biggest dream for up-and-coming artists ― that they would create art for themselves and not necessarily just to please other people.  

“I want to argue the case for artists or potential artists who might be listening in on our conversation and are not giving expression to what’s really going on in their lives because they feel it will give the wrong impression of them. We don’t have to please God in any other way than to be brutally honest,” Bono said. “That is the root. Not just to a relationship with God, but it’s the root to a great song. That’s the only place you can find a great song. The only place you can find any work of art, of merit.” 

Listen to Bono’s second conversation with Fuller Studio above. For more, visit their website.

Young Royals Launch Global Academy, Take Part in Radio Talk Show

ROYALS ON THE RADIO: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry to launch a school called the Global Academy in West London on Thursday.
The royal trio headed to the school in Hayes, London, met with students and took part in a Heart radio breakfast show, broadcast from the Global Academy. The talk was held with students — and Spice Girl Emma Bunton — and focused on topics pertaining to mental health.
During the talk, the duchess said the first conversations about mental health should start when children are young. She suggested starting “these conversations from a much earlier age but through play, even if their language hasn’t yet developed.”
She also addressed loneliness: “Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated but actually so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through. It is being brave enough…to reach out to those around you.”

Even strong relationships are susceptible to marriage mistakes, particularly if the marriage is relatively new, according to Pastor John Gray of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Pastor Gray often counsels couples and newlyweds in matters of marriage, and he says there are three particular marriage mistakes that are toxic enough to tear two people apart.

MISTAKE #1: Holding your spouse hostage to past mistakes.

People make mistakes. When your partner says or does something that offends you, it’s important not to harp on that mistake in the future. Instead, Pastor Gray says, you must give your spouse the opportunity to learn and grow. “That can mess up a young marriage because nobody knows how to do it right at the beginning,” he points out.

MISTAKE #2: Assuming married life won’t be different from dating.

What does a little piece of paper end up changing? A lot, says Pastor John. “When you engage another human being willingly with the opportunity to walk away, which is what dating is, there’s less pressure,” he explains. “When you get married, now you’re saying, ‘I’m building with this person.’ … There will be tension.”

MISTAKE #3: Telling your business to your parents.

Pastor John calls this one of the biggest mistakes young married couples make. “Lady, if he offends you, don’t tell your mama. Because when he ends up apologizing and getting it right, and you’re healed from it, the mother still remembers it,” Pastor John says. “Keep your business to yourself.”

Pastor John’s new series, “The Book of John Gray,” premieres Saturday, April 15, at 10 p.m. ET, but you can  watch the first episode in full now on WatchOWN.tv.

‘Next Time I Will Wear Only Jeans and a Scarf’: Stars React to United Kicking Off Young Passenger Wearing Leggings

Celebrities are speaking out following the news that United Airlines refused to let girls onto a flight because they were wearing leggings.

Shannon Watts, a mother-of-five from Colorado and founder of movement Moms Demand Action, shared on Twitter Sunday that young passengers boarding a flight from Denver to Minneapolis were told they could not board the plane unless they changed their outfits.

Although some were allowed onto the plane after modifying or changing their outfits, she tweeted that two girls were not allowed on the flight. Of the group, she noted that one was about 10-year-old. Watts asked United for an explanation.

United responded to Watts on Twitter, writing that they “have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed.” They later clarified that the girls in question were “pass travelers,” or travelers flying on comped or discounted tickets, typically reserved for employees and their family members. United explained that they have a stricter dress code for pass travelers as they are representing the United brand.

Still, stars like Chrissy Teigen and William Shatner joined the list of people speaking out against United’s confusing policy on Twitter.

“I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress,” wrote Teigen, 31. “Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.”

Patricia Arquette also shared her thoughts on Twitter.

“Why aren’t you allowing girls to wear leggings on flights?” she wrote. “Who is your gate agent policing girls clothing? “Was there something’s strange about all these girls leggings? Do U understand U have just made at least half UR customers very unhappy?”

“Leggings are business attire for 10 year olds. Their business is being children,” the actress continued. “Y did dad board wearing shorts? Shorts R only business attire 4 Angus Young.”

“Turns out United bans leggings, torn jeans, and shorter shorts for free employee pass tickets. Still @united should update policy,” she added.

Actor Andy Richter wrote, “I have flown numerous times while displaying an egregious mooseknuckle. What’s a male over 10 have to do to get noticed?”

Comedian Sarah Silverman said that she was not going to fly on the airline for her upcoming tour.

“I fly a LOT,” she wrote. “About to go on tour all April and changing all my @united flights to other airlines.”

Despite the outcry, United held firm that they were following policy.

“The passengers this morning were United pass riders who were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel,” the airline responded.

Margaret Atwood’s Advice For Young Feminists: ‘Be Informed, Be Aware’

It’s an International Women’s Day miracle! Margaret Atwood, author of the classic feminist dystopia The Handmaid’s Tale, took to the internet today bearing gifts: A new teaser for the Hulu series adaptation of the book, a takeover of the series’ Instagram account, and a Reddit AMA bursting with feminist inspiration

Over the course of her AMA, the speculative fiction doyenne offered Reddit users insights about her work, the upcoming “Handmaid’s Tale” series, and the feminist struggle. A major topic of discussion was the dystopian novel ― timely due to both its soon-to-be-released TV version and the timeliness of the book’s events. The Handmaid’s Tale takes place in a future North America in which a theocratic regime has seized power and dramatically rolled back women’s rights. 

April 1984, starting to type The Handmaid’s Tale in West Berlin. — Margaret Atwood #HandmaidsTale

A post shared by The Handmaid's Tale (@handmaidsonhulu) on

Here are some of the big takeaways:

Young feminists need to stay informed about threats to their rights.

In one response, Atwood encouraged young women to be politically engaged ― a fitting message from the author of a book that’s had such a profound impact on many feminists today. “Be informed, be aware,” she wrote, urging feminists to try “to prevent the roll-back that is taking place especially in the area of women’s health. Who knew that this would ever have to be defended? Childbirth care, pre-natal care, early childhood care ― many people will not even be able to afford any of it.”

The consequences of women losing access to reproductive healthcare would be dire.

If these healthcare battles were to be lost, Atwood was clear that the damage would be severe: “Dead bodies on the floor will result.”

Sexual assault is still a problem, and we need to be able to defend ourselves.

“There is the whole issue of sexual violence being used as control ― it is such an old motif.” She suggested one concrete, practical step for women to take immediately: “If I were a younger woman I’d be taking a self-defense course,” she advised. “It’s an unsettled time.”

The dystopian world she created in The Handmaid’s Tale seems increasingly possible here and now.

When one Reddit user went so far as to posit that the U.S. “is basically on the road to becoming Gilead” (the theocratic, patriarchal totalitarian state in The Handmaid’s Tale), Atwood didn’t disagree. “I cannot tell you how strange this feels,” she admitted. “I wrote the book hoping to fend it off, and I believe it will be fended off: America is very diverse, a lot of people have been jolted out of political slumber and are paying attention, and the Constitution still stands.”

Comparing the 2017 screen adaptation of the novel to a 1990 film version, she noted that times had changed: “That world is closer now! […] then, many people were saying, ‘It can’t happen here.’ Now, not so much.”

The Hulu series won’t downplay the anti-woman dystopian themes. 

During the AMA, she had high praise for the Hulu series, which she helped write and on which she’s credited as a consulting producer. “It goes farther than I did in the book,” she revealed. 

How exactly does it go farther? Let’s just say: We can’t wait to find out.

Young Woman Unlocks Secrets Of The Universe At A Music Festival

Who are we? Where do we come from? Why do hands look so trippy?

We may never know the answers to these questions, but for a brief moment it would appear this young woman at a music festival did.

The promotional video was put together by the producers of Wobbleland, an annual California music festival that plays dubstep music. This year’s festival, held this month, featured artists including Skrillex and Nero. The video, posted online Thursday, already has amassed millions of views. 

A Wobbleland organizer put the video on Reddit, saying the woman was given a free guest list for life for allowing producers to use the footage. 

Some say she’s still dancing.

Too Young for a Heart Attack

Too Young for a Heart Attack


Stu Segal was a fit, healthy 37-year-old-or that’s what he thought until Fathers’ Day 1987 ended with a heart attack. When the ER doctor told him he might or might not survive, he realized that, one way or another, life as he knew it was over. Stu traces the journey of a man facing the new reality that though much of what he loved was gone, yes, he might still be able to live a long and happy life-if he methodically changed his approach to the things he’d always taken for granted. Over the course of weeks, months and years, Stu says goodbye to the habits he’s used to and rebuilds them all from the ground up-his work, his eating, his physical activities, even his hobbies and relationships. And along the way, he learns that happiness isn’t exactly what he thought it was. Readers seeking heart-health advice will find Too Young for a Heart Attack includes a top-10-healthy-practices list, a food appendix featuring heart-friendly recipes, and medical expertise from cardiologist Ian J. Molk, M.D.FROM THE AUTHOR:I had a heart attack, out of the blue, at age 37. It was serious-serious enough to change the rest of my life in ways I couldn’t imagine. It’s been 26 years since the heart attack. I have lived, loved, laughed-in spite of the heart attack. Or is it because of the heart attack?Hard to say, but over time it awakened my desire to live and revealed my love of life. It gave me the motivation to stop my unhealthy behaviors, the eating, the smoking, the stressing. the behaviors that surely precipitated the crisis. Prior to the heart attack I never truly recognized the risks of these behaviors. I was thin and had always been thin. I didn’t need to exercise or watch what I ate to stay that way. And you know, thin is healthy-just ask anyone. My diet included absolutely no vegetables-if it was green, it wasn’t going in my mouth. I loved anything sugary-Frosted Flakes, Pop Tarts, Boston cream pie, Tastykakes. And let’s not forget Italian salami, capicola, steaks. and hot

What I Wish I Knew When I Was Young

What are some things you realize as you get older? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Auren Hoffman, SafeGraph CEO, on Quora:

What are some things you realize as you get older? Doing one thing great is better than doing ten things well. They teach you the opposite in high school (unless you are a star basketball player). In high school, the most important academic statistic is your GPA (Grade Point Average). Of course, averages are almost always terrible statistics because they weigh everything the same.

Just because you got a C in history, doesn’t mean your life is over. And just because you get As in everything doesn’t mean you are set-up to be great. In fact, if you get As on everything you might end up being a very high-functioning cog instead of focusing your talents.

Adolescence is a wonderful time to explore new things. It’s a good time to try lots of things and see what speaks to you. At some point in one’s life you need to eliminate options and focus on a grander strategy at becoming great.

Understand the Venn Diagram overlap of (1) things you like to do; (2) things you are excellent at; and (3) things that will be treasured in the future. Of course, predicting #3 is very hard to do for some things (but, actually, for many things it is surprisingly easy).

My other piece of advice is to under-optimize on prestige and brand. Optimizing for being great at something means you likely are going to an important area that has less competition. If everyone you know is trying to get a job at the same place or get the same fellowship, that might mean it is overvalued and you should be zigging when those around you are zagging.

Young Royals Join Queen Elizabeth, Middleton Family at Sandringham

The duchess, who will celebrate her 35th birthday on Monday, shopped her closet once again, and donned a calf-length green Sportmax coat, accessorized with a diamond brooch. She first wore the coat at the same venue on Christmas Day in 2015. Shortly after, the coat sold out within a few hours on the Sportmax site.

Today was the Queen’s first public appearance in a month. She had been suffering from a severe cold and was forced to skip the traditional Christmas and New Year’s services at Sandringham.
The Queen, who recently passed on some of her patronages to younger members of the royal family,  wasn’t the only royal recovering from a heavy cold.

Turns Out Prince Harry Was Causing Trouble From A Very Young Age

Prince Harry’s partying days seem mostly behind him. You’re now more likely to find him working to de-stigmatize HIV testing, being the world’s best boyfriend and rescuing endangered elephants than causing a ruckus.

But in newly released hand-written letters from Princess Diana to Cyril Dickman, a steward at Buckingham Palace who became a friend, it’s clear the bad boy persona that plagued Harry’s younger years started even earlier than we thought. 

“The boys are well and are enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!” Diana wrote to Dickman in 1992, when Harry was just 8 years old.

Diana’s letters went up for auction by property and auctioneering firm Cheffins on Jan. 5, along with other, less appetizing royal collectables like a piece of Queen Elizabeth II’s 1947 wedding cake. The notes to Dickman were expected to sell between $ 372 and $ 1,118  but ended up selling for much more ― between $ 2,733 and $ 3,976 each, according to Cheffins. 

In another note included in the auction, Diana thanked Dickman for his well wishes following Harry’s birth and revealed another personal tidbit about Prince William’s affection for his new little brother.

“William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!” she wrote. 

The letters are a glimpse into royal life, and a reminder of the value of hand-written notes, and a sweet homage to the beloved princess, all in one. Now if only we had a few thousand spare pounds lying around.

Hairdresser Goes Above And Beyond For Young Customer With Autism

A South Carolina mom’s viral Facebook post is demonstrating the power of empathy when it comes to kids with special needs.

On Dec. 29, Jennifer McCafferty posted a photo that shows her 4-year-old son Isaiah having his hair cut while sitting on the floor of a Sport Clips salon in Charleston. In the caption, the mom explained that Isaiah has autism, so this hairstylist’s kindness meant a great deal to their family. 

“This woman, Kaylen, … did more for my heart than she will probably ever realize,” McCafferty wrote. “Haircuts with Isaiah are no small feat. He hates having anything near his ears, the sound of clippers sends him in to a tailspin.”

McCafferty explained that this particular evening at the salon was consistent with their past difficult experiences. “I was ready to give up, but she wasn’t,” she said. “She sat on the floor with my baby in her lap, and she cut his hair. They talked about Dory and Christmas, and she even let him spray her with her water bottle.”

Concluding her post, the mom shared a message on behalf of her family and others facing similar challenges. “Autism can be so very, very hard, but people like this make our days just a little easier,” she wrote. 

McCafferty’s post received nearly 95,000 likes and the Love What Matters Facebook page shared her story. The comments sections on both posts are filled with responses from fellow parents of kids with autism. 

McCafferty told The Huffington Post that Kaylen was a real lifesaver that day at the salon. When Isaiah had a meltdown, she went above and beyond to help him find “his quiet, safe space” in the midst of the overwhelming sensory stimulation.

“She wasn’t fazed by his screams; she understood his fears,” McCafferty recalled. “She figured out where it was he needed to go, which just so happened to be the floor, and she took him there.”

The mom said Isaiah has a “beautiful soul” and a warm heart. “He is everything that you would want your child to be,” she said. “He’s fun and full of energy. He’s sweet and kind, and ridiculously funny. He loves with everything he has.”

Isaiah’s love is especially boundless when it comes to his 6-year-old brother, Alex. “They have an amazing bond, and I credit Alex for a lot of the progress Isaiah has made with his social interactions,” McCafferty said. “Alex is able to comfort Isaiah when the rest of us can’t, and always seems to know just what Isaiah needs to soothe him.”

McCafferty told HuffPost she hopes Isaiah’s haircut story will bring hope to other parents of kids with special needs. “I want them to realize that even though it can feel like it, they are not alone,” she said. “I want everyone to see just how much love and kindness matter.”

The Young Visiters or Mr. Salteenas Plan (Classic Reprint)

The Young Visiters or Mr. Salteenas Plan (Classic Reprint)


The Young Visiters is the unaided effort in fiction of an authoress of nine years. Effort, however, is an absurd word to use, as you may see by studying the triumphant countenance of the child herself, which is here reproduced as frontispiece to her sublime work. This is no portrait of a writer who had to burn the oil at midnight (indeed there is documentary evidence that she was hauled off to bed every evening at six) :it has an air of careless power; there is a complacency about it that by the severe might perhaps be called smugness. It needed no effort for that face to knock off a masterpiece. It probably represents precisely how she looked when she finished a chapter.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don’t occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books’ Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

DOUBLE DUTY: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were at work over the weekend, celebrating World Mental Health Day with a visit to a charity in London. They attended an event held by Mind, a charity that aids people suffering from mental health problems, at Harrow College, where they met with young people and joined a workshop to learn about some of the relevant issues. The Duchess wore a black and white printed Tory Burch dress, the same one she donned during the royal tour to New Zealand in 2014.
Later on Saturday, the royal couple headed to Twickenham Stadium to watch Australia beat Wales in the Rugby World Cup, where she wore a gray Reiss coat.

Milan Puts Spotlight on Young Talents

YOUNG GUNS: Milan’s Palazzo Morando on Wednesday evening was lit up for two back-to-back events hinging on fashion’s generation next: “Empower Talents 3,” hosted by Vogue Italia editor in chief Franca Sozzani and Kering chairman and ceo François-Henri Pinault, a project that offers internships at the luxury brands that are part of the French group in Italy; and the “Who is On Next? and Vogue Talents” happening, also hosted by Sozzani.
“It’s always beautiful to channel the energy of youth and work with new talents,” said Carlo Capasa, president of the Italian chamber of fashion.
“I came earlier to Milan to check out the new designers,” said Laudomia Pucci. “It’s our duty not only to find them but to help them.” How did she feel about the debut show of Massimo Giorgetti at the helm of Emilio Pucci on Thursday? “Very confident,” she grinned.
Salvatore Ferragamo’s Massimiliano Giornetti was taking a break from putting the finishing touches to his collection, to be shown on Sunday.
“It’s all ready and done,” countered Anna Molinari about her own lineup. Giambattista Valli, Lapo Elkann, siblings Alberta and Massimo Ferretti, Moncler’s Remo Ruffini, Sara Battaglia, and Elena Ghisellini also attended.

Not Like Most Young Girls

Not Like Most Young Girls


18 True Stories from the Urban UnderbellySex work-the world’s oldest profession. A world of shadows and sleaze. Of faceless, nameless individuals. Walking and talking bodies dolled up in glittering clothes and deceiving make-up, flashing frozen smiles, willing to sell themselves for a square meal. But carrying within them tarnished souls and fractured dignities. Not Like Most Young Girls is a collection of short stories written by young minds from eminent educational institutions from Mumbai, presenting before society the human beings hidden within the sex workers. These are stories of women, men and hijras who have come together under Aastha Parivaar. Not Like Most Young Girls is more than a book-it is an attempt to bring out of the shadows, these individuals who breathe, feel, and give back to society, just as any one of us do-or perhaps more.

Nicaragua’s Young Designers Eye Expansion

MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Nicaraguan emerging designers Shantall Lacayo and Ana Alexandra Velazquez are aiming to tap overseas markets by showing at Paris’ Who’s Next in September.
Lacayo, who has sales of $ 80,000 a year, hopes to open 12 points of sale over the next three to five years, with tentative plans to market in Paris, Dubai, Miami, Los Angeles and New York.
In the near-term, she hopes to open doors in Honduras and El Salvador to take her count beyond her current four points of sale in Nicaragua and Panama. Further into the future, she hopes to enter the U.S. and Europe.
“I would love to find an agent to represent me in Paris and one day sell in Bloomingdale’s or Saks [Fifth Avenue],” said Lacayo, who also helps direct the Nicaragua Diseña trade fair, which has an expanding fashion wing that also showcases other design talents.
Lacayo, who was second finalist in the 2010 edition of “Project Runway Latin America,” hopes her spring 2016 will attract attention at Porte de Versailles.
Dubbed “Gypsy Goddess,” the collection features several embroidered dresses inspired by the Nicaraguan genciana flower and featuring geometric and Cubist prints evoking the Seventies. The most popular item has been a handmade, dark-blue nylon-mesh gown

Scoring Big With Prolific Young Film Composer Giona Ostinelli

Like many, I can get obsessive about film music. But long gone are Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Henry Mancini, even John Barry and the astounding Jerry Goldsmith. We just lost the often excellent James Horner. Meanwhile, John Williams is kinda busy with some little Disney project with lightsabers in it. And upstarts like Anne Dudley, Danny Elfman, Herbie Hancock and Hans Zimmer have become established elders. Thus do I scan the horizon for fresh talent.

2015-08-28-1440798324-3299641-Gionainstudio.jpg

Giona Ostinelli

Currently my ear has landed upon Giona Ostinelli, a Swiss composer working in Hollywood, a mere 29 years old but with an impressive 25 feature films to his credit, plus assorted short films (over 30 during just nine months studying at USC!) and new-media projects. You can hear Giona’s work this week in POD, a horror shocker by director Mickey Keating, opening in 10 cities and via VOD. While PODPOD on VOD, that’s catchy — showcases Giona’s gift for eerie tension-building, it wasn’t until I visited his studio that the delightful diversity of the young composer’s palette was revealed. He began by screening and playing his upbeat, aw-shucks, orchestral opening for Arnold Grossman’s The Boat Builder (starring Christopher Lloyd) — and I was like, wait, you’re the same guy? You’re not about just one screechy-spooky note?

“With POD, for the ending, I wrote this piece for a choir,” explains Giona of his efficient 2 1/2-week process of scoring the horror, “and Mickey didn’t know what was going to happen. I didn’t know either, because I got to the end of the movie, and I was sick and tired of hearing my sounds, I wanted something different! So I said, ‘how about a choir?’ I sent it to Mickey, I said, ‘Mickey, you’re allowed to hate me for what I’ve done with the ending — because it’s totally different from the rest.’ So I sent it to him, and he was like, ‘that’s an awesome surprise!’ He didn’t expect it, and it worked great.”


Talking POD

Indeed, viewing POD — which is not unlike a meaner, scarier, extended X-Files episode (two siblings check on their brother in a secluded Maine house: and what they find ain’t pretty) — one does not sit around thinking “choir” — and right away, that’s the aura of Giona: an innovator. He seems to have “surprise” coded into his DNA. I ask about scoring horror — does the director impose certain obligatory stings and so forth?

“He always invites me to his place,” says Giona of Mickey, “to his editing bay, and then he shows me the film. He’s like, ‘Here’s my idea, roughly, how it is — just take it, and surprise me!’ So I was working on it, and he has these flashbacks, and I was like, ‘Why don’t we try to do something cool?’ I know that sound design is going to cover that, to a certain extent — but when I watch a film, and I see that type of thing, I would like it to be pressing! (Giona makes a disturbing mouth noise) So I was like, why not take the chance and do it?”

2015-08-28-1440798466-1261901-MickeynGiona.jpg

Mickey Keating and Giona Ostinelli

This attitude serves Giona well — he takes the chance and does it — and he and I enthuse over our love of Dave Grusin’s winning score for The Goonies: which, it turns out, inspired us both to rush headlong toward the arts. Heh.

“I remember, when I was a kid, saying, ‘I want to do this!'” gushes Giona. “I started playing drums when I was five, piano when I was almost nine, doing choir when I was 16, playing in many bands — metal bands, rock bands, blues bands, jazz trio — you can see in the types of films I do, I always do different genres. (laughs) I always wanted to do film music, but growing up in Switzerland, it’s not a career choice. In Switzerland you either become a banker, a lawyer, or a doctor.”

Or Jung, I add (though that job application proves fairly stringent).

“Or a watchmaker!” adds Giona’s concert-pianist partner — and we all grin knowingly: watches — how 20th-century!

2015-08-28-1440798583-144029-Gionavan.jpg

I elicit a laugh from Giona by imitating the beloved Danny Elfman style (conveniently: “Oompa-Loompa, Oompa-Loompa…”), and he admits he’s a big soundtrack buff, raving up Thomas Newman: “His sounds are so amazing,” he says, emphasizing Saving Mr. Banks, “but for some reason, I love tons of his scores, but that one! Thomas Newman, you listen to him, it’s very simple, and it sounds great. Then you go to Hans Zimmer, he has 200 tracks, it sounds great — a completely different style.”

Giona is practically gasping as he enthuses: “I like listening to scores, and I buy so many! How did they get this sound?!”


Giona Ostinelli’s Soundcloud

On cue, Mickey shows up to join his composer (see videos for the guys in action), and the two rave up their partnership on POD but also Ritual (2013) and the forthcoming Darling (2015). “We’ve known each other for so long,” says the world-weary 25-year-old, “that the whole process is really creative. I feel like so much of the process of working with composers and editors, there’s this learning curve. But me and Giona can just riff back and forth.”

“And also, the cool thing about Mickey,” adds Giona, “not many people do this, but working with Mickey is like family. It’s always the same editor, same sound designer, same cinematographer, and we all know each other. It’s so cool! You feel part of a family, and you’re not afraid to experiment.”

“Yeah, it’s great,” agrees Mickey. “And I mean, it really helps create a process. It doesn’t seem so formal. The movies are all sort of hand-made and home-grown, and that’s what’s exciting about them.”


Talking Darling

“I’m finishing Darling, and Mickey’s finishing editing Carnage Park,” chimes in Giona, contrasting both the visuals and sounds of the former (lensed in New York), and the latter (lensed in the California desert).

“What’s great about it is they’re such different films,” adds Mickey. “Darling‘s so weird, but classical and ambient, and Carnage Park‘s like a Peckinpah western with the sensibilities of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and stuff. So they’re all different subgenres of horror, and it’s so cool to be able to have somebody who can just do it all!” Mickey gestures to his friend, Giona.

2015-08-28-1440798657-1349461-Gionabw.jpg

“I’m sure that if I wouldn’t try to push myself,” sums up Giona, “to do drama, to do comedies, dark comedies, trying to do a romantic film or Christmas film–“

Two Christmas films,” I remind him.

“–two Christmas films. If I wouldn’t try to push myself, and go to places that I’m afraid of, that I’m not comfortable in, then I wouldn’t be so good even in the horror genre. But because I always try to explore as much as possible, then everything becomes useful.”

POD is now playing in select theaters, and on VOD.

Young Royals Head to Portsmouth for America’s Cup World Series

ROYAL RAIN OUT: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to Portsmouth, England, to support Olympic gold medalist Sir Ben Ainslie and his crew who are participants in the America’s Cup World Series race. While inclement weather caused the race to be called off, that didn’t put off the young royals, who donned matching navy fleece jackets bearing their names on the back. The duo visited and took a tour of the royal naval base and met with the staff and team crews.
Avid sailors, the Duchess is a royal patron of the 1851 Trust, and the Duke and Duchess have raced each other in Team New Zealand America’s Cup yachts last year.

Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff To Be Helmed By ‘Lego Movie’ Directors

“Star Wars” and Legos were practically made for each other, as the “Force Awakens” Lego remake trailer proved. And now, the duo behind “The Lego Movie” are headed to a galaxy far, far away.

On Tuesday, StarWars.com announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the team best known for the Oscar-nominated animated film, will direct a ”Star Wars” anthology film. The directors, who were also behind “21 Jump Street, “22 Jump Street” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” will direct a stand-alone film based on a young Han Solo. The spinoff, written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi,” “The Force Awakens”) and Jon Kasdan (“The First Time”), will reveal how Han Solo became the “smuggler, thief, and scoundrel” we first met at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with,” Lord and Miller said in StarWars.com’s press release. “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.” Well said.

According to Entertainment Weekly, a Han Solo origin film, which was first rumored two years ago, was reportedly going to be one of the first films in the “Star Wars” anthology series. However, “Rogue One” from director Gareth Edwards, was pushed up as the first spinoff so as not to confuse fans after Harrison Ford’s appearance in “The Force Awakens.” 

Before the young Han Solo spinoff hits theaters on May 25, 2018, there’s lots of “Star Wars” to look forward to. J.J. Abrams’ “The Force Awakens” will open Dec. 18, followed by “Rogue One” on Dec. 16, 2016. There’s also the second “Star Wars” stand-alone film, which director Josh Trank left in May, as well as a separate rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off

Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff To Be Helmed By ‘Lego Movie’ Directors

“Star Wars” and Legos were practically made for each other, as the “Force Awakens” Lego remake trailer proved. And now, the duo behind “The Lego Movie” are headed to a galaxy far, far away.

On Tuesday, StarWars.com announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the team best known for the Oscar-nominated animated film, will direct a “Star Wars” anthology film. The directors, who were also behind “21 Jump Street, “22 Jump Street” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” will direct a stand-alone film based on a young Han Solo. The spinoff, written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi,” “The Force Awakens”) and Jon Kasdan (“The First Time”), will reveal how Han Solo became the “smuggler, thief, and scoundrel” we first met at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with,” Lord and Miller said in StarWars.com’s press release. “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.” Well said.

According to Entertainment Weekly, a Han Solo origin film, which was first rumored two years ago, was reportedly going to be one of the first films in the “Star Wars” anthology series. However, “Rogue One” from director Gareth Edwards, was pushed up as the first spinoff so as not to confuse fans after Harrison Ford’s appearance in “The Force Awakens.” 

Before the young Han Solo spinoff hits theaters on May 25, 2018, there’s lots of “Star Wars” to look forward to. J.J. Abrams’ “The Force Awakens” will open Dec. 18, followed by “Rogue One” on Dec. 16, 2016. There’s also the second “Star Wars” stand-alone film, which director Josh Trank left in May, as well as a separate rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off

Forever Young: Rock and Roll As the Antidote to Aging

2015-06-23-1435073354-1147303-guitarman.jpg

A few weeks ago I was visiting a friend in Los Angeles who had recently retired after a lifetime of working in the music industry. Before my visit I had spotted her in a documentary film about an iconic recording session in the 1980s with some of the top names in the business. When we met for coffee, I complemented her on how she hadn’t changed since then. After comparing notes on old friends, the decline of society and our current situations we agreed that rock music was still a vital element in our lives and how the music managed to transcend generations. And more importantly, it had the quality to keep us young.

A recent article in the Huffington Post illustrated how musical tastes become fixed by the time one reaches the end of their twenties. Which for a lot of the older public means that bands like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones are the musical markers from their youth. There is now even a whole genre of music and a weekly radio show called ‘dad rock’ to deliver to these fans the music they want to hear. With a label like that, Generation X, Y and Z are sometimes turned off as it implies easy listening, parental values and people stuck in the past, but in fact, the music appears on their iDevice playlists nonetheless.

So if ones music tastes are fixed in their twenties, does that mean every time you hear a song from that stage in your life those memory cells are activated? Do our thoughts turn to more simple times and our DNA tingles with a youthful charge? Is the mental flexibility and openness of our youth reawakened, while the idealistic values of those times are remembered?
And for today’s generation — do they find the music interesting, antique or somehow relevant the same way a generation ago, jazz music held a certain magic but is now quasi-classic?

In contemporary music there is a lot of awareness of songs from the dad generation in the sampling of snippets of songs from the 70s and 80s. Artists like Puff Daddy (or whatever incarnation he goes by now) won a Grammy award with a song borrowing from that 80’s band the Police, with I’ll Be Missing You. Even Pharrell Wiliams number one song Blurred Lines had to recently pay millions in royalties for appropriating from a Marvin Gaye song from the 70’s. And one of my favorites homages to old time rock and roll is Kid Rock’s summer anthem All Summer Long where he uses two songs from the ’70s, starting with Werewolves in London and morphing into Sweet Home Alabama.

In my novel Coast Highway, a Romeo and Juliet story set in the 1970s Silicon Valley (released this fall), I reference sixty-two different bands and songs, which I have turned into Spotify and YouTube playlists. Trolling through all the versions of songs, concert footage and MTV videos from those times was a nostalgic trip for me down memory lane that put a smile on my face. Some of the videos were so campy you would think they were a Saturday Night Live comedy act, when in fact it was the style of the times. And this summer a lot of fashion houses are pushing hippie couture complete with bell-bottom jeans. The past is reinvented again and again.

An unbelievable number of older acts are touring these days with the dubious label dinosaur rock attached to particularly grey haired performers. Last year Fleetwood Mac was on the road again and my son had bought me a ticket to one of their shows as a birthday present. The old rockers played close to three hours non-stop and generated such a high energy level that even my son was impressed. It was surprising, considering he is more used to semi-underground bands from the States. The audience was an even mix of ‘dad rockers’ and people from their teens upwards. The band had become iconic and as living legends became a ‘must see’ act.

The British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge once said:

‘The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.’

If Malcolm was correct, then not only the dad rockers looking to remain forever young but the younger generation curious about the magical elixir rock and roll offers should give the music and more in-depth listen. Perhaps it will give them a double dose of youthful energy with an unexpected depth.
So if good old rock and roll is alive and well in our music channels and individual playlists, then why try to categorize it as dad rock, which is generally seen as a critical designation implying premature senility with a well-developed dose of tinnitus. So lets skip the labels, get rocking and knock a few years off our lives.

17 Timeless Books Our Dads Read To Us When We Were Young

Reading to a squirming child can be a bit of a chore, especially the kind of child who demands to hear Goodnight Moon five times every night for a year and a half. Still, it’s one of the most rewarding ways parents can spend time with their little ones: fostering a love of books, cuddling, and creating lifelong memories. For parents who spend their days at work, the bedtime story can be a particularly cherished tradition.

With Father’s Day on the horizon, we wanted to remember the times our dads took the time to read a favorite book to us when we were small. Some of our dads read us Seuss, and some read us sci-fi, but one thing is for sure — we all remember the books our fathers read with us, and the joy those story times brought to our childhoods.

Below, in no particular order, HuffPosters recall the books their dads shared with them growing up. Tell us about your favorite childhood memory of reading with your dad in the comments!

1. The Hobbit

hobbit

No offense to Andy Serkis, but you haven’t heard the true voice of Gollum unless you were there when my dad read The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy aloud to my brothers and me when we were little. He’s an English professor, not a voice actor, but he got into the performance aspect with gusto, and even 20 years later, I can hear his Gollum impression in my mind’s ear. Unfortunately when he tried Watership Down, the bedtime reading tradition fell apart — we couldn’t get on board with warring bunnies — but I’ll always love that he looked at us three kids, all well under the age of 10, and thought, “Yep, it’s time to tell them a story about a faceless evil power bringing an end to life as we’d like to know it.” Thanks, Dad. -Claire Fallon, Culture Writer

2. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

mike mulligan

Before he retired, my dad was an electrician in New York City, a job that is full of tough guys doing physical labor. I wonder if him reading Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel to me and my siblings sticks out in my mind now because it gave a humanlike face and feelings to heavy-duty machinery, much like the kind I imagined my father working with all day. It brought my dad and his looming 6-foot-6-inch stature down to our level figuratively and literally, because I think we’d usually pile around him on one of our beds or the living room couch when a reading was happening. Today, I wonder if turning the beloved steam shovel into a furnace (spoilers!!!) really was the best plot resolution, but it still stands. Or that’s just my childhood nostalgia speaking. -Jillian Capewell, Entertainment News Editor

3. The Lorax

lorax

My dad used to read The Lorax to me all the time when I was little. I’m not entirely sure why we got so into it — it must’ve just been Dr. Seuss’s entrancing meter and repetition that kept bringing us back to it. To this day we’ll still sometimes say to each other “Those trees! Those trees! Those truffula trees!” -Alexandra Svokos, College & Education Fellow

4. Father and Daughter Tales

father daughter tales

My dad and I used to always read Father and Daughter Tales before I went to bed. When he was tired, he would sometimes skip parts of the story, but I had the entire book memorized, so I always caught him. When he would finish reading, he would always ask me, “So, what’s the moral of the story?” And sometimes, when we couldn’t track down Father and Daughter Tales he would read me Mother and Daughter Tales! -Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor

5. Hop On Pop

pop

When I was really little (2 to 4 years old) and learning to read, my dad and I would read Hop On Pop by Dr. Seuss. Well, he would read it me and use his finger to point to the words. I technically couldn’t actually read what was on the pages, but I memorized the book. Then, being inspired by the message of the book, I would subsequently attempt to hop on pop. -Eva Hill, Video Editor and Lead Animator

6. Miss Nelson Is Missing!

nelson

One of my fondest memories with my dad is when he used to read books to my sister, brother, and I. Some of the books that were a part of that childhood memory are Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, which both hold special places in my heart. But our ultimate favorite that Dad would read was Miss Nelson Is Missing! by Harry Allard. Why? Because as my dad puts it, “You guys were really surprised that the mean substitute teacher was Miss Nelson!” -Jacqueline Howard, Associate Editor, HuffPost Science

7. Officer Buckle and Gloria

gloria

When I was little, my dad would read to me every night before bed. One of my favorite books we read together was Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann. It’s the story of a police officer who tours the town of Napville teaching kids about safety. (The name “Napville” never struck me as odd before now … possibly because nap time was always a mandatory Williams family activity). Officer Buckle’s presentation receives a little spice with the addition of Gloria, a police dog with a penchant for dramatics. As Officer Buckle lists off his safety tips, Gloria acts out each potential catastrophe behind him, delighting their young audience. The story is funny, heartwarming, and features an acting dog, so basically I was in little-kid heaven. Even so, I’d often ask my dad to “read it funny,” at which point he’d go off-script and make up a nonsensical story, complete with voices and silly faces. I would laugh hysterically. And even after all this time, I still live by Officer Buckle’s Safety Tip #77: Never stand on a swivel chair. -Abigail Williams, Associate Social Media Editor

8. Frog and Toad Are Friends

frog

My dad would read Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad Are Friends to me and my sister — in particular the story “A Lost Button,” in which Toad loses a button off his jacket, and then he and Frog search for it. They find a bunch of buttons, but none of them are Toad’s. When my dad read us the story, he would read Toad’s dialogue with a mounting, apoplectic rage that I’m pretty sure Lobel didn’t include in the original version. “That is not my button,” my dad would snarl in Toad’s voice. “That button is SQUARE. My button is ROUND.” Obviously, hearing Toad grow closer and closer to snapping completely and murdering his best friend was, to me and my sister, the funniest thing in the world. -Alexander Eichler, News Editor

9. Tom Brown’s School Days

tom

My dad read a book out loud to me and my brother that no one has ever mentioned since to me: Tom Brown’s School Days. Never heard of it? That’s because your parent did not grow up in freshly independent India, in the shadow of the British Raj. Frankly, I don’t remember much about the actual story beyond a blur of boys and green fields. (A quick Wikipedia skim tells me the semi-autobiography was set in a country school in England — Rugby School — where in the early 1800s the book’s author, Thomas Hughes, got schooled). What I do remember is the Pavlovian thrill the sight of that worn and stark blue cover — no illustrations — stirred in me each night my dad brought it down from the shelf. This was the end of the day, the only time where I actually knew precisely where we all were for a stretch of time. It could have been any book. -Mallika Rao, Culture Reporter

10. The Napping House

napping house

My dad Kevin didn’t just read stories — The Napping House by Audrey Wood was always in the rotation — he was also amazing at making them up. “The Four Bears and The Red Bud Berries” was a favorite for my three siblings and me. Now he reads to and makes up stories for my kids, Eli and Henry, and man oh man, it melts my heart. -Katie Nelson, National Editor

11. Day of Infamy

infamy

I know what you’re thinking: A 1957 non-fiction book about the attack on Pearl Harbor isn’t exactly sentimental. Bear with me. My father, a surgeon, worked very long hours. But he always made time for me — on weekends, at nights before I went to sleep — and he liked nothing more than sharing his vast knowledge about history. He got that knowledge from books, most of which he kept in the library that was across the hallway from my bedroom.

It’s still there, with deep brown wood bookcases that go from floor to ceiling, only now he’s had to pile the books two deep in some places. He’d also taken over the shelves in another part of the house, much to my poor mother’s occasional dismay. But I get it. The library was the room that always made me happiest. I’d sit there for hours, plucking titles off the shelves and flipping through them in my father’s beat-up recliner chair.

Day of Infamy was one of the first “adult” books I could read as a kid. I must have gone through it a dozen times, which seems weird until you put yourself in the mind of an 11- or 12-year-old. Reading it made me feel grown-up. It made me feel like Dad. And that made me feel good. By the way, I’ve tried hard to carry on that tradition with my own two boys, both of whom hang out in my library and, before bed, demand that I give them history lessons. I’m not sure how much they like the history and how much they just like hanging out with me. But I don’t really care and I imagine my father has always felt the same way. -Jonathan Cohn, Senior National Correspondent

12. Make Way For Ducklings

duck

I have fond memories of reading a number of “vintage” books with my dad when I was little. One of our favorites was Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. It’s a book that’s been around for a while, but the black-and-white drawings are still packed with action. I remember appreciating how the policemen went out of their way to assist the ducks and keep them safe during their journey to the pond. And when I visited Boston many years later, I was excited to see the statues of the Mallard family in Boston Common. Seeing them brought back memories of the many evenings my dad and I spent sharing the ducklings’ story together. -Sara Bondioli, Deputy Politics Editor

13. The Call of the Wild

wild

In middle school we had to read The Call of the Wild, which literally bored me to tears. To encourage me, my dad promised to read every chapter with me — he even took notes. At the end of the chapters we’d sit down and discuss what had happened and what we thought would happen next. Though it’s far from being one of my favorite books, I sort of like it, because without reading it, I would have never had that bonding experience with my dad. -Yagana Shah, Huff/Post50 Associate Editor

14. Into the Land of the Unicorns

unicorns

My dad demonstrated incredible patience in repeatedly reading first-grade me a novel called Into the Land of the Unicorns. It involved a young girl who got magically transported into a bizarre unicorn-inhabited land to deliver a secret message to the queen unicorn. Needless to say, this was probably not riveting reading material for a man in his 40s, but my dad persevered with enthusiasm and a (semi-limited) range of voices for different characters. -Hilary Hanson, Crime and Weird News Editor

15. Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop

curious george

When I was little, I loved reading Curious George with my dad. The most memorable book from the series is Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop. It indulged my love of ice cream while instilling the importance of patronizing local businesses, even if the owners are a little crabby. -Katelyn Bogucki, Multimedia Producer

16. Ender’s Game

ender

I never was that into science fiction (not much has changed), but somehow, when I was in elementary school, my dad coaxed me into reading Ender’s Game, one of the many Orson Scott Card books he read. I loved it, and have probably read it a dozen times since. Looking back, it’s no surprise a story about a student chosen for a special adventure to save the world appealed to a daydreamy, bookish kid — it’s actually just like Harry Potter, if Harry Potter had futuristic technology of the ‘80s instead of magic and a space station instead of a wizard school. At the time, I loved having something to bond over with my dad, and also read all of the (much more boring) sequels for that reason. Now, I’m grateful that he taught me the rewards of being adventurous in my reading and otherwise, pushed me to take chances on the unfamiliar and took the time to share something he genuinely loved with his daughter. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

17. The Golden Compass

compass

I grew up in a family that loved science fiction and fantasy, so one of the first books that I remember bonding with my dad about with was The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. The protagonist Lyra was a fearless, talkative girl who was highly intelligent and loved adventure. That book was the beginning of our love for other fantasy and young adult books — including Harry Potter, Stargirl and The Lord of the Rings. Because Father’s Day and my birthday happen around the same time every year, it’s a special time for my dad and I to talk to each other about books and what we’re reading — as well as our love of reading. The written word has evolved from handwritten letters to words on a page to texting — and I wouldn’t trade the evolution of my relationship with my dad and our love of reading for anything. -Madeline Wahl, Blogs & Community Associate Editor

BONUS: Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem

fermat

When I was about 11, my dad, an engineer with a sick sense of humor, informed me that if I wanted to return to camp that summer, I would have to read and report on Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem, the scintillating, true tale of a mathematician doing … math stuff. I have no idea if my dad was actually trying to get me interested in something he enjoyed, or was just playing a cruel parenting joke. While I complained and put it off ’til the last minute, I did read the entire thing, and I think I understood it. I maybe even secretly enjoyed the historical drama parts, but now I can remember the taunting image of Fermat’s face on the cover of Simon Singh’s book better than I could explain what an + bn = cn means. Still, this story is one of my favorites about me and my dad, one of the most revealing about our relationship and bound to crack us up if we retell it. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

Forever Bleeker Street, Forever Young

In 1961, at 17 years old, I moved into a floor thru pink brownstone on the corner of Bleeker and Jones Street in the West Village of New York City. It was heaven. There were cozy woodsy cafe houses on every street corner, The Figaro, The Fat Black Pussycat, The Gaslight Cafe. They were filled with college students listening to a brand new sound, folk singing.

2015-06-15-1434333442-8015691-image.jpeg

The small Bleeker Street shops were stocked with goods from other folksy artists, either designing beatnick clothing, African ethnic jewelry or middle eastern patchwork home furnishings, including mirrored pillows and bongo drums. The Look was changing from sleek 50’s post modern to a new Look called WHATEVER …..as long as it shakes and sparkles. Everything in these shops (now called “boutiques), looked and felt brand new with a new vibe, a vibe that sang of love, of freedom, and a vibe that reeked of sex.

The Village and it’s cool inhabitants had also just discovered marajuana, that we all called POT.

Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, William de Kooning all hung out at the Cedar Street Tavern on University Place picking up all the wistful, young, long haired girls. Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce, performed at the Cafe Wha while picking up all the busty NYU literary scholars they could handle. Bob Dylan, still Bobby Zimmerman, sang at the Cafe Wha and I passed the hat for him and Fred Neil, our singer songwriter star ( who had launched Dylan).

2015-06-15-1434333544-5747521-image2.jpeg

I attended Parsons School of Design launching a brand, Fonssagrives -Tiel with my future partner, Mia Fonssagrives. My coffeehouse name was Peaches La Tour, a name given to me by Steve De Naut, my Cafe Wha folk singing sweetheart. Steve was the father of future actress Rosanna Arquette, then Lisa De Naut. To catch his eye I created see thru lace mini dresses, crochet tops and wrap skirts all styles that are sold again today in the Bleeker St shops.

2015-06-15-1434334029-7808069-image3.jpeg

In my pink brownstone I also sewed and sold fringed suede vests, skirts and handbags with my 6 inch fringe often beaded. The artists and folk singers I met in the cafés bought my clothes, especially my black or forrest green skin tight leather pants. Every which way you turned you felt you were in the center of the happening universe. The boring” Father Knows Best” fifties were a thing of the past.

Today in 2015 at 71, both my age numbers and myself have reversed. I have returned once again to live near Bleeker St but in the the East Village, not the West Village and after spending 45 years in the posh upper east side on E 63rd St making custom gowns for VIP’s at Bergdorf Goodman, I once again am wandering the streets that so inspired me at 17. I prefer the East side as my beloved Cafe Figaro is now an ice cream chain.

I stay today in NYC with my dear Parsons classmate artist, Mary Alice Orito, who was just named President of NAWA, the oldest association of women artists. In 1961 Mary Alice worked at Margaret Moore on 8th st selling hippy chic jewelry, while a student, a block away from my brownstone my hippy-home-brick walled shop.

QUELLE COINCIDENCE…suddenly sixties and seventies fashion is back in Vogue and back downtown and so am I, and so is Mary Alice.

Our favorite hangout today is Agozar a Cuban cafe on 324 Bowery on the corner of Bleeker St in the East Village. Not only is it an outdoor people watching heaven, it also has Tapas to perfection and it has the city’s best Piña Colata, topped sky high with toasted coconut. We can sit for two hours and see all of the cities fashion finest. In my youth the Bowery was a no-no, a no-go.

Fine Art had moved across town to the East Village and Bleeker St now houses one of the cities best contemporary galleries, Zurcher Gallery, at 33 Bleeker. They hold a mini art fair twice a year. The gallery is also also in Paris.

In the posh West Village under the Highline uptown artists and their expensive galleries have moved downtown from 57th st and escaped the high dollar rents which had made newly discovered artists unaffordable. Now galleries are moving across town to the East Village allowing even more unknown creative artists to display their work.

Salon Zurcher had a fabulous show highlighted by the Benischek Giant Levi Jacket, called “New Day Rising”. It caught my eye.

The blue jean, is the only item of clothing worn nonstop from the sixties until today. Brad Benischek, a New Orleans artist, whose work will then be featured in Brooklyn at David Dixon’s Cathouse FUNeral Gallery is a man after my heart combining fashion and art.

If you are to buy only one item today on Bleeker St, it has to be a sixties brown floppy hat. The place to go is City Hats on 63 Bleeker St. No other item so captures the feeling of the Bleeker St vibe then a floppy brown hat, be it summer or winter the hat said it all, we were easy breezy, we were cool.

Debutaunt Examines Traditional Rites of Passage While Encouraging Young Women to Find Their Voice

2015-05-26-1432665164-4159256-ARMWRESTLE.jpg

I’m sitting in an airy warehouse in Red Hook Brooklyn filled with plush white beach-house furniture, rustic chandeliers, and freshly cut dogwood branches. The space is an old converted ice cream factory used for weddings and other events but will soon be transformed into a charming ballroom for a new immersive show, Debutaunt. Director and choreographer of the show, Mary John Frank, twirls and moves swiftly in front of me as she maps out the three act structure of the immersive dance-based show. Between rehearsals she takes a beat to sit down and answer a few questions.

TR: Tell us a bit about Debutaunt. What is it?

MJF: Debutaunt is an interactive dance-based show where audiences are invited to attend a debutante ball. Guests are divided into teams or “families” and encouraged to root for a specific debutante. Thematically the show explores coming of age rituals, tradition, and the notion of being presented or being on display.

TR: Why is the title of the show Debutaunt and not Debutante? Tell us about the “taunt” part of title.

MJF: The show pokes fun at the notion of arrival. In my twenties I had the mentality that, “when I get this job, or that boyfriend, or when I make more money, then my life can start!”. I was living in the future and missing the good stuff that was right in front of me. When I learned that we actually never arrive, that life is a process, things became more interesting and I was able to show up for my art and the people in my life in a more genuine way. The joke, or taunt, is on the debutante characters who are future tripping and waiting for specific milestones, in this case their “debut”, in order to feel validated.

TR: What inspired the concept and how did this show come to be?

MJF: About a year and a half ago I saw The Glass Menagerie on Broadway starring Cherry Jones. I was particularly moved when Amanda put on her old debutante dress and entertained Laura and the gentleman caller. The image of Cherry Jones in the debutante dress performing heightened feminine gestures stuck with me as did themes in the play like time, aging, and memory. Shortly after seeing the performance, I went home to Texas for the holidays and experimented with some movement in my old debutante dress. My parents were concerned! The experiment turned into a short dance film called Lady in Waiting, and making that short allowed me to dig into the themes and choreography for Debutaunt.

We did our first run of the show last October at King’s County Bourbon Distillery and audiences seemed genuinely interested in the experience and the concept. This was really exciting to us, and when an opportunity came up to do the show again we decided to go for it with the goal of strengthening the narrative and deepening the characters.


The night quickly devolves into competitive chaos.
Vogue

TR: Even an offbeat show in Brooklyn is quite a feat to stage. Who did you work with to get this mounted?

MJF: I’ve been working with friends and producers, Bettina Barrow and Lydia Thew. Bettina has been a close friend since childhood and my writing partner for almost a decade. We have a book to film project coming soon that explores themes similar to those in Debutaunt. Lydia is a talented producer for CNBC and has a background in finance. The three of us have been raising funds since last July through our fiscal sponsors, The Field. Our venues, King’s County Distillery and Atelier Roquette, have been great to work with and helped us out, big time, by providing rehearsal space. I also got to workshop the idea and make many of the films at a dance on camera residency at Cucalorus Film Festival. We have also had performance and rehearsal support from SILO, Triskelion Arts, Lightbox, and Communities In Schools.

TR: You are directing and choreographing the show as well. Tell us about your work as a choreographer. Did you always dance?

I danced growing up and stopped in college when I was struggling with body image issues. Instead of pursuing dance, my first job out of college was an assistant gig in film. From there, I moved to Los Angeles and worked in production at studios like Paramount Vantage and Warner Bros. During that time, dance gradually made its way back into my life and I was eventually ready and able to make it a priority again. I began looking for choreography opportunities and taught at dance studios wherever they would let me. When I turned thirty, I took a major leap of faith, left my production job at Warner Bros., and started freelancing. I am now choreographing, directing, teaching, and blending dance and film whenever I can.

TR: How does dance function in the show? What type of dance is it?

MJF: Much of the movement was inspired by black and white cotillion photographs, contemporary dance, and Esther Williams-style synchronized swimming moves. Because the girls are wearing large white dresses, we rarely see their legs and a lot of emphasis is on the placement of the arms and the movement of the upper body and head. Structurally, dance serves as a transition between scenes in the show. It also functions as a means of expression and storytelling for our characters during their debutante ball and, ultimately, it unites the cast and audience at the end in a communal dance party.

TR: Since much of the show involves movement, how did you develop the characters and the script?

MJF: Some of the scenes were scripted in advance and some came from improvising in rehearsals. We have a really smart and curious cast who have been open to all kinds of improv, movement, and writing exercises. Regarding our characters, we have five personalities: the perfectionist princess, the competitive ice queen, the people pleaser, the rebel artist, and the fish out of water who does not want to participate. I’ve basically taken all of the traits that I think hold us back as humans and put them into these characters. For example, the perfectionist, Beatrice, is a control freak and is constantly telling everyone what to do and how to do it. Everything is measured and calculated and directed. Her movement style is precise and quick. Her bossiness is coming from a good place (“we need some order here!”) but she irritates the group and this keeps Beatrice separate from them. Eventually all of these wacky personalities have to learn to function harmoniously in order to stand up to the Mistress of Ceremonies, Martha McMillen.

Some of the performers have started Instagram accounts for their characters for fun. If you’d like to get to know them early check them out: @catherineelizabethjane, @cecefitx , and @melanieannewinslow.

TR: In the script, you described Martha McMillan as a “steel magnolia who leads with a contagious smile and an iron fist”. Tell me more about this character.

MJF: Much of the Martha character comes from the negative voices in my head (with some major polishing from producer/writer, Bettina Barrow). The negative voices say nothing is enough and that I always need to do more, try harder etc. The voice is insatiable, risk-averse, and narrow minded. Martha is tricky as she delivers some pretty cutting comments, but with a smile. She is hard on the debs because she wants to protect them from the harsh realities of the world. She has had a challenging life and is convinced that by being Mistress of Ceremonies at the deb ball, year after year, she is instilling some kind of hope and order. Martha pushes the girls a little too far in this run and eventually they revolt. Her movement style is precise and quick. Her bossiness is coming from a good place (“we need some order here!”) but she irritates the group and this keeps Beatrice separate from them. Eventually all of these wacky personalities have to learn to function harmoniously in order to stand up to the Mistress of Ceremonies, Martha McMillen.

Some of the performers have started Instagram accounts for their characters for fun. If you’d like to get to know them early check them out: @catherineelizabethjane, @cecefitx , and @melanieannewinslow.

TR: You have spoken very highly of your cast. Is there anyone in particular you want to give a shout out to?

MJF: All of them! I’m listing the cast here so readers who are still with me will look up these talented people: Melanie Comeau, Elizabeth Dunn, Rachel Guest, Brittany Posas, Cara Seymour, Cecily McCullough, Beck Hartke, Catherine Cobb Ryan, Julian Devine, Teddy Tedholm, Taner Van Kuren, Michael Spencer Phillips, and Donna Fish. Read more about them here.

TR: Who are some other artists that inspire you?

MJF: Pina Bausch, specifically the way she blended dance and theater and how her dancers embody human emotion so vividly. Mary Oliver for her poems The Journey and The Summer Day. I am also inspired by Wes Anderson and Christopher Guest and filmmakers who create very specific worlds for their actors to explore. Lena Dunham for her book, Not That Kind Of Girl. I re-read the “condom in the tree” passage whenever I need a laugh and dose of honesty. Kurt Vonnegut for Who Am I This Time? and other shorts. Bruce Weber whose photos are just fun – smoking, naked on a beach – it doesn’t matter. He makes me feel like we are all free to do whatever and that it is okay to take a nap in the middle of the day.

I also have some talented friends and peers whose work really inspires me like photographers Victoria Will and Amanda Jasnowski. Filmmaker, James Ponsoldt. Screenwriter, Natalie Krinsky. Also, choreographers like Shannon Gillen, Celia Rowlson Hall, Chihiro Shimizu, and Dana Katz. Stellar humans and creators!

TR: How do you want to see Debutaunt grow?

MJF: I would love for Debutaunt to find a more permanent home in a convenient location so more folks can see it. Creatively, I am interested in continuing to deepen the script, the choreography, and I would love the time and budget to dig into the film projection piece of the show. We are also looking to enhance our team and hope to bring on a producer who has experience in live and immersive theater for the next run

One heck of a party.

DUJOUR

TR: Do you think there is a place in today’s world for the traditions and culture of the debutante?

MJF: I’m not really sure to be honest. I recently went to some debutante presentations in Texas to research and was expecting to think, “This is elitist and weird and white and why did I participate in this when I was twenty-one? And this tradition should become extinct!”… however, I was surprised to find that I didn’t actually feel that heated about it or observe anything particularly noteworthy or offensive while I was there. The parties are certainly extravagant and some of them take place at country clubs so can be viewed as pretentious; however, I noticed that the girls were all very grateful to be there and respectful. The fathers were proud and doting and it seemed like a sweet exchange between fathers and daughters in that particular community.

I actually left with an appreciation for the warmth and friendliness of Texans and I was reminded of how nice manners can be really attractive! I know it would be way more exciting to give you some dirt, but I didn’t leave with much, other than feeling I had just observed a somewhat bizarre ritual that ended in a dance party.

TR: What’s next for you after the show?

MJF: After we open, I’ll be directing video content for some online magazines, choreographing a film project, and teaching dance and dance for camera at studios and universities. For now I’m doing my best to stay focused on the show and getting people to come and see it. I hope you will join us!

Creepy, Texas (Young Adult Urban Fantasy)


Dusty Jacobs is the typical young adult. He loves the latest online video game sensation, Monster Hunters, in which humans have to fight off the paranormal monster hordes, doesn’t like school, and fights with his older sister, Amy, on a daily basis. Amy is a fan of metal music and Goth clothing and likes to think of herself as the ultimate non-conformist. His parents, Roger and Michelle Jacobs, are equally as typical, Michelle a researcher for a bio-tech company who always insists the kids take their ‘special’ vitamins that she designed. His father is a simple accountant. Other than occasionally not seeing himself in a mirror, Dusty thinks that all is well with his world. What Dusty doesn’t know, however, is that his family is being watched by a secret organization called the Monster Hunters Association, and that their upcoming move from urban New York to Texas isn’t because his mother is retiring. It’s because they are running from the MHA. When Dusty and Amy are confronted at school by Rykes, a diabolical agent of the MHA and just barely escape his custody, the family flees the city, leaving the children’s friends and everything they’ve ever known behind. So begins their odyssey across the country where, with every turn, the mystery deepens. Along the way Dusty begins to suspect the deeper implications. He discovers that not only are monsters – vampires, werwolves, ghosts, and tools – are real, but world is in danger from them. Dusty has to find out why the Monster Hunters Association is chasing them. But more importantly, he has to discover just who he is.

Watch What Happens When This Young Couple Sees What They Will Look Like In 70 Years

SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue

By Sue Campbell

If you haven’t yet seen the viral video showing a couple in their 20s get transformed by makeup artists to look age 50, 70 and 90, take five minutes to watch it (below). The video will make you think about sterotypes of aging and also about what it means to grow old with a partner.

It centers on Kristie and Tavis, who are to be married in a month. They’ve agreed to this experiement and are eager to share it with their families. “My mom thinks this is the coolest thing ever,” Kristie says. “She said, ‘What a treat for us because we’ll probably be gone when you’re that age, so we’ll get to see what you would maybe look like.”

The makeup artists get to work, and when the couple hits 50, Tavis is delighted by Kristie’s looks. They expect, they say, that they’ll be living a sterotypical kind of life, raising teenagers and joining the PTA. At 70, they turn a bit emotional. “I can’t help but think about what the potential last 50 years would hold,” Tavis says. “To see her look like this makes me think of where we have gone, what would have happened in between.”

To see a young couple ponder time’s passing, believe the years will keep them together and accept one another’s aging faces with love reveals the commitment they feel. It’s sweet and tender to watch.

At 90, they weep. The pair instinctively grasps that there’s deep comfort to be found in long relationships. They talk about what their last words to each other would be. “I would want to make sure he knew how much I love him and how important he’s been to me,” Kristie says. “I’m a better person because of you,” Tavis says.
