FLASH DANCE: James Whiteside certainly loves a challenge: The principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater arrived in Paris at 6 a.m. on Saturday ahead of his smashing performance on Thom Browne’s men’s runway. As soon as the show ended he was headed back to New York for rehearsals for his day job: On Tuesday, he’ll be performing as Siegfried in Swan Lake. He called the Browne gig “an incredible opportunity” beyond what he’d ever dreamt of doing.

On top of the jet lag, he had to deal with the oppressive heat at the show, which took place under a big glass ceiling inside the Beaux-Arts. The temperature did not weigh on him though. “As a dancer I like to be hot — it’s good for the muscles,” he said.

Whiteside, whose costume was a trompe l’oeil pinstripe suit on top, and a tutu on the bottom, said he’d welcome more opportunities like the Browne one. He said that as a gay man, he wants to go beyond playing “straight male characters” on stage and explore other roles. “I want to get
“I have nostalgia for things I probably have never known.” The slogan embroidered on one of the big straw totes on the Celine runway could well summarize Hedi Slimane’s design ethos, though he would probably dispute that.
Suffice it to say that his childhood heroes — David Bowie, Serge Gainsbourg and The Clash, to name a few — are largely to credit for his trademark androgynous, elongated silhouettes. And with the designer working a Seventies groove, those influences loomed large over his spring men’s collection.
The sentence in question was actually borrowed from a painting by David Kramer, one of five artists who collaborated with Slimane this season, alongside Zach Bruder, André Butzer, Darby Milbrath and Carlos Valencia. “My own worst enemy,” read another — though we’ll resist the temptation to analyze that.
Paired with a pinstripe jacket, denim shirt and flares, aviator shades and white shoes, the straw bag had a distinctly Gainsbourgian panache. Those high-waisted faded jeans were worn with everything from a shrunken leather bomber jacket to a seersucker tuxedo coat — picture the Rolling Stones recording “Exile on Main Street” in the south of France.
Items like dungarees, straw boater hats and a gold lamé jacket brought to mind another
MILAN — “How do you live in an age of bewilderment, when the old stories have collapsed, and no new story has yet emerged to replace them?” This is one of the questions historian and author Yuval Noah Harari asks in his 2018 book “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” and which sparks a conversation on how technology is shaping and changing our society. It is not surprising then that Harari is one of the speakers of the first European Innovation Festival, staged by media brand Fast Company and for the first time hosted by Gucci.
Held between Milan and Florence July 9-11, “The Dawn of Superintelligence” will highlight the potential for collaboration between man and machine. Technological advancement and artificial intelligence bring both opportunities and challenges by combining computer science and human sensibility, and the festival was hailed as key in helping to discuss a topic stirring more questions than providing answers, said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, in an interview with WWD.
“The topic is of the moment, the use of data, intelligent machines and how they can change the future. The effect that all this can have on jobs, what does it mean, will machines
The story and teachings of the great yoga master PARAMHANSA YOGANANDA come to life in 'The Answer' chronicling the powerful true story of an American, James Donald Walters (later known as Swami Kriyananda).
One of the most notorious J-horror films ever made, Takashi Miike’s Audition exploded onto the festival circuit at the turn of the century to a chorus of awards and praise. The film would catapult Miike to the international scene and pave the way for such other genre delights as Ichii the Killer and The Happiness of the Katakuris.

But soon things take a very dark and twisted turn as we find that Asami isn’t what she seems to be… Pulling the audience into a story that will lead to one of the most harrowing climaxes in cinema history, Miike twists and turns us through delirious editing and shocking visuals for one of the most depraved nightmares of all time!

"I love this Beauty and the Beast story that Skye Warren has crafted. She puts a twist to this classic tale that makes it different and deliciously erotic." – Nina's Literary Escape Once upon a time there was a beautiful college student… Erin cleans Mr. Morris's house twice a week to pay her tuition. The reclusive ex-soldier intimidates her, but she can't help but feel sympathy for him. Then she walks in on him touching himself, and she has much darker, much more sensual feelings. And a beastly professor with scars he can't hide… Blake Morris knows he's scarred both inside and out. He's reclusive and surly. Nowhere near good enough for the smart and beautiful young woman who cleans his house. He receives an offer to return to his alma mater as an associate professor. This is his chance to reenter the world–and to be worthy of the woman he dreams about. He never expected to see her sitting in his classroom on the first day of the semester.  * * * * * Author's Note: This book was previously published as a serial in multiple parts, including Beauty Touched the Beast, Beneath the Beauty, and Broken Beauty. They've been collected into this volume and revised for new readers. BEAUTY AND THE PROFESSOR is the first book in A Modern Fairy Tale duet.

PICTURING PRINCE sees the late icon's former art director, STEVE PARKE, revealing stunning intimate photographs of the singer from his time working at Paisley Park. At least half of the images in the book are exclusively published here for the first time; most other images in the book are rare to the public eye. Alongside these remarkable images are fifty engaging, poignant and often funny written vignettes by Parke, which reveal the very human man behind the reclusive superstar: from shooting hoops to renting out movie theatres at 4am; from midnight requests for camels to meaningful conversations that shed light on Prince as a man and artist. STEVE PARKE started working with Prince in 1988, after a mutual friend showed Prince some of Steve's photorealistic paintings. He designed everything from album covers and merchandise to sets for Prince's tours and videos. Somewhere in all of this, he became Paisley Park's official art director. He began photographing Prince at the request of the star himself, and continued to do so for the next several years. The images in this book are the arresting result of this collaboration.
A hot shave is one of man’s great pleasures. But who has the time or money to sit for one? Gillette wants to bring the hot shave experience out of the barber chair and straight to your bathroom with the world’s first Heated Razor. It’s available for pre-order now, and set to ship in time for Father’s Day.
Designed in Germany, the innovative and experiential arm of the grooming giant, the high-tech heated razor created a buzz last year when it launched. The GiletteLabs heated razor sold out in 5 days on Indiegogo. Now, it’s ready to be shipped to the public, and we couldn’t be more excited. With Father’s Day coming up fast, the timing couldn’t be better. It’s also a great time to consider signing yourself or the Dad in your life up with Gillette on Demand, to ensure he always has fresh razors at his disposal.
Now guys can get the soothing hot towel experience in the comfort of our own bathrooms. The wireless, five-blade razor heats up in less than a second. There are even adjustable temperature levels for ultimate comfort . And best of all, the razor is built to be completely waterproof, so we can use it in or out of the shower. Finally, a reason to look forward to our morning shave.
Does anyone shave without heat anymore? Most of us rinse our razor under a faucet of hot water before scraping away the lather. Many of us take our razors right into the shower with us, as part of our morning grooming routine. Some shave immediately after our shower. No matter when you prefer to shave, heat is an integral part of the pre-shave routine. Why? It awakens the senses and provides an elevated shaving experience.
Does This Gadget Really Work?
That’s what makes the GilletteLabs Heated Razor so amazing. Anywhere you shave, just a push of a button is all it takes. The thin warming bar sits right below the five blades, so once you dial in the temp to your preferences you can just start shaving. That’s it. No waiting for the faucet water to get hot, no standing with your face under a hot shower, holding your breath. The warming bar touches the skin just before the razor does, instantly prepping both whisker and skin for the shave to come. There are no wires to work around. It’s all powered by a Li-Ion battery that charges on a discreet stand you can put anywhere in your bathroom. There’s even magnetic docking, making charging your razor as easy as just putting it down.
If you’re ready to get the hot shave experience in your own bathroom—or know a dad who would—pre-order the GilletteLabs Heated Razor ($ 200) today. The razor will ship mid-late May (you’ll only be charged once it ships), but it will arrive at its destination in plenty of time for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 16. You can (and should) also enroll Dad in Gillette On Demand’s subscription service, so he gets a set of new Heated Razor blades (regularly $ 25) monthly, or every three or six months. It’s a great deal that keeps you from having to remember to order new blades all the time.
The GilletteLabs Heated Razor makes our morning grooming routine—the act of shaving in particular, of course, but the entire routine as a whole—far more pleasant and enjoyable than it’s ever been.
Buy Now: Be the first to shop the new GilletteLabs Heated Razor! Buy now at Gillette on Demand ($ 200) today. Product will ship in time for Father’s Day. Limited quantities available!
Teairra Mari is living the life of full-blown struggle. The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star was arrested on Saturday morning for allegedly driving drunk—and the fact that her car only had 3 wheels was the initial giveaway.
According to reports, Mari was pulled over after cops saw her coming out of the Midtown Tunnel into Queens in a red Dodge Charger, which allegedly sparks shooting from the front of the vehicle.
What cause said sparks? One of the front wheels (the one on the right) was missing. Per the New York Post, Mari drove a mile through the Queens-Midtown tunnel after her right front tire dislodged. Bridge and tunnel cops actually gave chase as Mari’s car sparked through the tunnel.
After coming to a stop, cops did a field sobriety test and it was only downhill from there.
She reportedly blew 0.304 into the breathalyzer, which is 3 times the legal limit.
Besides a DWI she was hit with a violation of court-ordered ignition interlock, illegal tinted windows, illegal operation of a vehicle, unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle, and more, per the cops.

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: In the wake of a New York Times article that highlighted the lack of diversity at Adidas’ North American headquarters in Portland, Ore., the athletic company acknowledged “there is much more work to be done, and we are committed to doing it.”
The extensive article noted there are three black people among the roughly 340 Adidas vice presidents internationally. There are 75 black employees at Adidas’ 1,700-person head office in North America. Twenty current and former black employees said the corporate culture contradicts the brand’s image which is reliant on such high-profile personalities as Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and James Harden.
In a statement, Adidas said, “We are committed to fostering a respectful, equitable, and inclusive environment for all Adidas employees around the world. It’s crucial that we have and support a diverse workforce that represents a variety of ideas, strengths, interests and backgrounds and that we promote an open culture where all of our people can fully contribute. We value all of our employees, are stronger because of their unique perspectives and are dedicated to achieving greater diversity at every level of the company.”
“We actively evaluate and seek to strengthen our programs and policies to ensure we are recruiting, retaining and
Myar is showing its colors for spring. Andrea Rosso’s army uniform upcycling label this season matched military-sourced camouflage with multi-hued patterns from deadstock Hawaiian shirts, calling the collection Re_Aloha. “We love to mix together two worlds that don’t belong together in a very harmonic way,” he explained.
The combinations’ visual effects are striking and fun. Pieces of a Hawaiian shirt, cut into camouflage shapes, were superimposed onto some uniforms. A green military fatigue pocket popped up on a similarly hued shirt emblazoned with palm trees. Blue military trousers took on a playful quality with piping made of shirting material.
On a number of garments, silhouettes of palm trees had been hand-stamped. “Every time it comes out differently,” Rosso said.
As in past seasons, Myar clothing comes with pouches containing excess fabric from its making-of. But this time, each also has a QR code through which it’s possible for people to learn about the provenance of the items and how they’ve been customized.
In another first, Myar created a dress, made of two military shirts put together. “Our biggest clients actually are females,” explained Rosso. “We have a unisex approach to the collection, even though these items are 100 percent made for men.”
The brand’s collaboration with
Tommy Hilfiger is popping into Rockaway Beach this weekend.
In a move to focus on a personalized, hyperlocalized approach to shopping for the next-gen consumer, Hilfiger will have a pop-up at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club in Rockaway Beach, N.Y., on Saturday, June 22.
This is part of Hilfiger’s larger retail strategy to plan short-term and long-term pop-up stores that meet the next-gen customers where they are.
The one-day pop-up will operate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The activation will consist of a temporary beachside stand selling Tommy Hilfiger and Tommy Jeans product that lends itself to tie-dye customization. All items, except pool slides, will be dyeable and available pre-dyed with the option to dye on-site.
The offerings consist of women’s bodysuits retailing for $ 60 and bikini underwear for $ 20; men’s cotton low-rise trunks for $ 28, Ts for $ 30 and $ 40, unisex socks for $ 12, and slides for $ 35.
On-site photographers will take pictures of consumers at the event with Polaroid cameras and instantly deliver the photos to guests in TH branded packaging. Tie-dye designer Abbie De Castro from Smalls Studio will be on-site to create one-of-a-kind product from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Adapted from her critically acclaimed novel, Amanda Sthers' Holy Lands explores the complicated lives of the Rosenmerck family. Harry (James Caan), a lapsed Jew and former cardiologist from New York, suddenly decides to spend his retirement as a pig farmer in Nazareth, Israel. It is a move that deeply shocks his family and puts him at odds with the local community there, in particular rabbi Moshe (Tom Hollander). Back in New York, Harry's ex-wife Monica (Rosanna Arquette) is trying to manage the lives of their adult children Annabelle (Efrat Dor) and David (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as well as her own, after finding out she has a brain tumor. Filmed in the iconic landscapes of Israel, Holy Lands is a universal story of love, family, loss and tolerance, told with incredible humor and heart in career-best performances by the stellar ensemble cast. Holy Lands shows that, even in the most dysfunctional of families, what matters is the courage to say what has been left unsaid.
The hunt for a killer draws a detective into an even larger mystery: the nature of the universe itself. Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is an unconventional New Orleans cop investigating the murder of renowned astrophysicist Jennifer Rockwell (Mamie Gummer), a black hole expert found shot to death in her observatory. As Mike tumbles down the rabbit hole of the disturbing, labyrinthine case, she finds herself grappling with increasingly existential questions of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and exploding stars—cosmic secrets that may hold the key to unraveling the crime, while throwing into doubt her very understanding of reality. Awash in dreamlike, neo-noir atmosphere, this one-of-a-kind thriller is both a tantalizing whodunnit and a rich, metaphysical mind-bender.

Though Richard is mugged, shot at and chased, he remains unaware that he is an object of suspicion and even falls in love with the agent (Lori Singer) who's trailing him. Meanwhile, his friend's (Jim Belushi) love-starved wife (Carrie Fisher) has designs on him as well. This film is the American version of the French film The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe.

Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and thereby exposes herself to the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love and family happiness.

Lil Durk was able to post bond in his ongoing attempted murder case in Atlanta and has a little help from a mentor from his past. The Chicago rapper’s childhood pastor flew from the Windy City down to the A to support and guide his former mentee as he tries to maintain his freedom.
We’ve learned Durk’s going back to his roots by placing himself back under the wings of his pastor who presided over the church he attended as a kid in Chicago. The pastor — who’s like a second father to Durk — he flew from Chicago to Atlanta to vouch for the rapper at a recent hearing — plans to use his ATL connections to get Durk involved in the community.
Durk apparently plans to spend time at shelters and soup kitchens. We’re told he wants to get his hands dirty … just like he used to in Chicago with the guidance of his pastor. He’d mentor kids there but, for obvious reasons, Durk’s work in Chi-Town’s been put on hold given the serious charges.
As we reported … Durk posted $ 250k bond Friday after a judge agreed he’s not a flight risk. Dude was so ecstatic getting outta jail … he literally skipped all the way to his waiting SUV. Durk will have a curfew and have to wear an ankle monitor.
A February shooting at Atlanta dining establishment The Varsity was reportedly connected to Durk via surveillance video and he turned himself in almost a month ago.

SLAM DUNK: Leveraging the buzz from Paris Fashion Week Men’s, Jordan Brand on Friday announced the addition of Jayson Tatum and Rui Hachimura to its roster of basketball ambassadors.
With rows of white balls on sticks greeting visitors, the event took place in a hôtel particulier in the city’s 5th arrondissement dubbed the House of Jumpman, featuring a makeshift faux basketball court in the courtyard.
“I’ve been wearing Jordans since before I could walk…just getting [Michael Jordan’s] approval to come to the brand was really big for me because he’s the greatest of all time,” Tatum told WWD.
The St. Louis native, who was selected third overall in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics, joins a family of more than 50 athlete ambassadors linked to the Nike Inc.-owned brand across multiple sporting disciplines, including Maya Moore, Kemba Walker and Blake Griffin, who were also present at the event.
The slickly groomed and heavily inked Tatum, who sported a pair of neon yellow “Flyknit 4s” by the brand, hinted at his own design aspirations. “Coming over to Jordan, there’s a lot of creativity. I definitely want to tap into that and tell my own stories,” he said.

Does anyone remember the good old fashioned CD? For Taiwanese designer Angus Chiang, the item holds a special signification: “Even though people don’t really use CDs anymore and everything is so digitalized, I think of them as a memento of a time when you could really connect with music and create memories that should never be forgotten,” said the designer after his spring 2020 show, which was a tribute to the humble CD-ROM.
On a soundtrack emulating a live radio, alternating between Taiwanese music, ads and fake radio shows, female models sported oversized single earrings made of twisted CDs, orange jersey dresses came with rows of plastic CD sleeves stuck to their front and men wore tank tops covered with “33 hour long play” stickers.
The collection had a strong Nineties vibe. Walking through a movable set of brightly colored arches created by Nicolas Giuet, a recent graduate from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, women models wore plastic clips and had their hair twisted in bunches, carried leather CD holders and sported oversized sweatshirts with sleeves long enough to completely cover hands, awkward teenager-style.

Ralph Lauren, who is executive chairman and chief creative officer, saw total compensation of $ 22.2 million last fiscal year, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission late Friday. That marked a modest decline from $ 22.6 million a year earlier.
Lauren’s take included a salary of $ 1.8 million and incentive pay of $ 9.2 million. But the biggest portion of his compensation came in the form of stock awards pegged at $ 11 million, although he might not receive the full value given share-price fluctuations.
The company’s president and chief executive officer, Patrice Louvet, received compensation of $ 13.9 million, including a salary of $ 1.3 million, $ 5.2 million in incentive pay and $ 7.3 million in stock awards.
That actually marked a steep decline for the ceo, who logged pay of $ 23.8 million the year before, his first with the company.
Adapted from the acclaimed bestseller by Jonathan Safran Foer, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" is a story that unfolds from inside the young mind of Oskar Schell, an inventive eleven year-old New Yorker whose discovery of a key in his deceased father's belongings sets him off on an urgent search across the city for the lock it will open. A year after his father died in the World Trade Center on what Oskar calls "The Worst Day," he is determined to keep his vital connection to the man who playfully cajoled him into confronting his wildest fears. Now, as Oskar crosses the five New York boroughs in quest of the missing lock – encountering an eclectic assortment of people who are each survivors in their own way – he begins to uncover unseen links to the father he misses, to the mother who seems so far away from him and to the whole noisy, dangerous, discombobulating world around him.
In this twisted horror anthology, five strangers are drawn to an abandoned theater and forced to watch their deepest and darkest fears play out before them. Lurking in the shadows is the Projectionist, who preys upon their souls with his collection of disturbing films. As each reel spins its sinister tale, the characters find frightening parallels to their own lives.
In this documentary, award-winning filmmaker Susan Froemke explores the creation of the Metropolitan Opera’s storied home of the last five decades. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, The Opera House looks at an important period of the Met’s history and delves into some of the untold stories of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. Among the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.
While their father is away at war, the four March sisters try their best to maintain life in their New England home. Fifteen-year-old Jo, modeled after author Louisa May Alcott, is a bit of a tomboy, tends to get in trouble, and loves writing. The oldest, Meg, works as a governess and puts herself in charge in the absence of their parents. The kind and charitable Beth loves music and being a caretaker. The youngest, Amy, is slightly spoiled and frustrated by being treated as the youngest. Alcott gives us a realistic account of the girl’s lives – the ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, successes and failures. It’s long remained one of the most relatable and appealing works of American literature.

Are the differences between a prince and a commoner too large to overcome, or are they just a matter of magical misperception?

There’s no such thing as a maintenance-free beard. If you’re sporting whiskers, you’ve got to take care of them—otherwise your face might become an itchy, unruly mess. But traveling complicates the grooming equation: How do you give your beard the care it needs without lugging around an extra carry-on full of supplies? For travel photographer Clint Johnston, a trio of grooming products from Wahl is the answer. Compact, easy to use, and effective, the Wahl Beard Oil, Beard Wash, and Beard Softener wet goods bundle makes the perfect travel companion and checks all the boxes for beard care.
“I use my wet goods products daily,” says Johnston in the video above. “I love having a dedicated product to keep my beard healthy, and I can use it on the go.”
The three products in the bundle are specifically formulated to give your beard all the care it needs. The sulfate-free Beard Wash cleans your scruff (and also works as a face cleanser), the Beard Oil moisturizes your whiskers, and the Beard Softener prevents itching and skin irritation while making your beard soft to the touch. With these products, your grooming routine becomes a simple three-step process: Just wash, apply the oil to moisturize, and add in the softener to keep your beard looking and feeling great. For Johnson, that means he can get the look he wants with minimal time and effort.
“It allows me to transition from rugged to refined in a matter of minutes,” he says. “As soon as I get home, I can just clean up and I’m ready to go.”
