Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto Are Faces of New Gucci Guilty Campaign

FRIGHT NIGHT: Gucci is getting ready to tell a new scent story with Jared Leto and Lana Del Rey. Channeling the same unconventional spirit as the soon-to-be launched campaign, the fashion house will host a party in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery Friday night to formally announce Leto and Del Rey as the new faces of its Gucci Guilty fragrances.
Both are noted Los Angeles-based musicians; Leto is the lead vocalist and songwriter for the multiplatinum selling band Thirty Seconds to Mars and also an Academy Award-winning actor, while Del Rey is an Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter known for her stylized cinematic quality and glamour.

Also in attendance will be Courtney Love, recording the night as it unfolds on the Stories of Gucci Beauty’s Instagram account. The singer-songwriter and actress has a guest appearance in the new campaign, which was directed by Glen Luchford with

From Naomi Campbell to Karlie Kloss, the Models That Fashion Week’s Favorite Faces are Crushing On

model crushes

Each season, a storm of aspirational hair, flawless skin, and anomalous features takes to the New York Fashion Week runways, resulting in a wave of rekindled and brand-new model crushes among the style set. We all have a girl who inspires a Where’s Waldo? moment as we seek to spot her in the frenzied crowd—whether just for the thrill, or to gather first-person intel on the newly shorn bob or fuzzy curls that we have a sudden urge to emulate. But what about the models themselves? We asked some of our favorite faces which of their fellow runway-walkers inspire their beauty routine and why. As it turns out, many of the crushes are shared—or even mutual.

No Hair, Don’t Care: Fashion’s Freshest Faces Are Embracing the Buzz Cut

shaved head models ruth bell

Shockwaves went through the fashion industry in the early nineties when Eve Salvail first appeared on the runway with a shaved head, her head bare save for a curled dragon tattooed on her scalp. Her hair, or lack thereof, stood in direct contrast with the lengthy, ultrafeminine locks of the era’s supermodels—think Christy, Cindy, Naomi, Stephanie, and long, swingy sheets of hair. Two decades later and long hair is still the default for new models, whose agents praise its versatility: With fashion shows and editorials requiring models to be quick-change artists, longer hair can more easily lend itself to the required transformations. As a result, agencies have historically preferred that models play it safe. But the current fixation on models with “personality” has given rise to a set of beauties who follow in the footsteps of trailblazers like Salvail. African models like Grace Bol, Herieth Paul, and Ajak Deng have been wearing their hair super short for years, but only recently have their peers followed suit. Rising stars Tamy Glauser, Ruth Bell, and Kris Gottschalk have all embraced the buzz cut—and seen their careers skyrocket as a result.

Close-cropped hair has long been a signifier of punk rebellion and offbeat cool, so it’s fitting that designers who understand the importance of carefully curated edge have sought the models who dare to shear: Glauser is a regular at Rick Owens and on Nicolas Ghesquières runway for Louis Vuitton, while Gottschalk was tapped to model alongside the boys at Public School’s show at men’s New York Fashion Week, and Bell cut her chest-length strawberry blonde hair to front the latest campaign for Alexander McQueen. As it turns out, having a shaved head has become something of a savvy career move: It not only attracts cooler clients, it also serves to set a model apart from the hundreds of other girls on the scene. “There are hardly any other models with a shaved head,” says Gottschalk. “It’s interesting because other girls don’t really see me as competition—I don’t get those sideways glances at castings.”

Bell’s newly shorn hair also helps to differentiate her from her twin and fellow model, May. Born and raised in Kent, England, the sisters began their fashion careers together often photographed as a pair—they even share an Instagram account. Since her pixieish Paul Hanlon buzz cut, Bell has been carving out a niche for herself, working with the likes of David Sims and Lachlan Bailey and, yes, forming her own social media account—one filled with shots of her as a moody, punkish gamine, rather than the more traditional, whimsical images that fill the account she and her sister share.

Glauser, likely one of the originators of the current buzzed-off trend, got her fade from a friend. “I had been talking about wanting to cut my hair forever, but I was too scared,” admits Glauser. “One day my friend just picked up scissors and cut my hair right down the middle—there was no going back.” Over time the look became Glauser’s signature: Occasionally the color will change—earlier this month she debuted a platinum hue—but the length rarely varies. Though she’s benefited from her now-trademark daring do, Glauser cautions those attempting to emulate it. “[Shaving your head] is a risk, you never really know how it will look until that moment of truth.” Still, the model has no plans to revert to her old style. “It just feels too amazing short—I might let it grow a centimeter, then it’s time to shave again!”

Faces Of Death: The Mugs Behind Some Of America’s Deadliest Shootings [Photos]

Too often are we forced as a nation to grieve and “band together” after heinous and unthinkable acts of violence. The Charleston Emanuel AME Church shooting and apprehension of Dylan Roof simply tells us we’re still amongst a filthy, plagued society where racial hatred and mental illness continues to be ignored on a grander scale.

While we’ll never forget the victims, take a look at the faces of evil. The men behind a handful of America’s deadliest shootings.

14 Badass Girl Athletes Show Off Their Game Faces

The 2015 Women’s World Cup begins on June 6, and to commemorate the occasion, the clothing brand Wildfang is showcasing some badass young female soccer players.

The company’s CEO Emma McIlroy teamed up with photographer Andrea Corradini to create “#GameFace,” a series of fierce photos of 14 athletes ages 5 to 14. “We are beyond excited about the Women’s World Cup. It’s one of the most amazing moments in sports and women get to take center stage,” McIlroy told The Huffington Post, adding, “We wanted to look forward to the next generation of female footballers and, as you can see, the future of the sport is in good hands.”

The creators reached out to local soccer coaches in Portland, Oregon and invited their young female players to show off their “game faces,” which they define on the Wildfang website as “their most authentic moment, right before they stepped out onto the pitch.”

gameface
Tess, 11: “Cheetahs are my favorite animal — they’re almost as fast as I am.”

Unsure if anyone would show up to the photo shoot, McIlroy and Corradini were pleasantly surprised when over a dozen bold, young athletes stopped by — most coming right before or immediately after practice. With “zero styling,” each girl proudly displayed her purest game face.

“They showed up with such innocent and fierce pride,” Corradini told The Huffington Post. “They were confident, yet giggly. Independent, yet bonded with their teammates. They had no reservations about just being themselves and letting me photograph them in their most natural and authentic way.”

“We wanted to show young females as they truly are — raw, powerful, beautiful,” McIlroy added, noting that she hoped the photo series would provide a refreshing alternative to the images of “young women in pink and wearing princess dresses” that seem so pervasive in today’s society.

The Wildfang CEO also said she hopes other women can “see a little of themselves” in the hardworking female athletes depicted in #GameFace. “We hope they remind them to be a little bolder and tougher and ultimately be really proud of being who they are,” she continued. “Our hope is these images leave you feeling inspired to go kick ass in your day.”

Woman Faces Friend Who Lied To Her About Having Cancer (And It’s Not The Reaction You Expect)

Imagine your best friend telling you she is facing the battle of a lifetime: incurable cancer. Then, after you’ve supported her in every way you could — even shaving your head in solidarity — you discover that the cancer diagnosis was a lie.

That’s what happened to Chelsey. When the 25-year-old learned that her dear friend Meaghan had terminal cancer, she banded together with other friends in support. In addition to shaving their heads, the women got matching tattoos and raised thousands of dollars to help with Meaghan’s medical bills. After 14 months of comforting their friend, Meaghan confessed that it was all a lie — she didn’t have cancer, and she wasn’t going to die. Hear why Meaghan says she faked cancer.

Now, for the first time since the truth was revealed, Meaghan comes face to face with Chelsey in the video above.

Meaghan apologizes to Chelsey for taking months to face her and says, “I want you to know that the reason I haven’t reached out is not because I don’t care or because I’m not sorry, because that’s not true. I think that I wanted to figure out as much as I could why I got to this point … I betrayed you. I betrayed your trust. I’ve done it before, and it wasn’t fair.”

Dr. Phil asks Meaghan, “Are you sorry for what you’ve done to her?”

“I am very, very, very sorry,” she says. “I am sorry to [Chelsey], to all of the girls, to my family.”

Chelsey addresses Meaghan. “I don’t want you to think that I hate you, because I don’t. I don’t wish any harm on you,” she says. “My first and still reaction has always just been heartbreak, knowing what kind of a broken place that must come from to do something like that and to feel so unlovable that you thought that’s something that you had to do. The amount of shame and guilt that you must feel is probably far worse than any punishment that could be inflicted on you.”

Chelsey says she and their other friends didn’t deserve what Meaghan put them through, but as awful as the situation has been, it’s better than Meaghan dying of cancer. “I wish that you could have stopped it before it went on as long as it did,” says Chelsey. “I think you can move on from this; I don’t think this has to define you.”

The Most Iconic Faces To Inspire Men’s Grooming Over the Past 30 Years

This article was written by Emma McKay and was originally published on AskMen.

On a crisp late January evening in Paris, in a sprawling bar, Le Perchoir, spanning several stories high above the streets of the 11th arrondissement, pro kiteboarder Youri Zoon ambles in for his interview. As we talk, the bar fills up with a who’s who of Parisian cool, posing for photos and sipping bespoke cocktails: fashion industry savants, women in faux fur and big felt hats, avant-garde musicians. We’re here to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Biotherm Homme, a high-end French skincare brand (disclosure: I was there as a guest of Biotherm Homme).

Youri’s passionate about his sport, and his enthusiasm shines through in his lack of canned responses. We talk about kiteboarding more than we do moisturizer. As the face of Biotherm Homme’s Total Recharge line and the subject of the brand’s new 360-degree Oculus Rift video (shot using six GoPros strapped to his head), Zoon’s life exposes him to all the punishment that wind, salt and sun can bring. Between his extreme activities and frequent air travel, Zoon’s skin is no stranger to fatigue and dehydration — this guy legitimately needs cold weather skin care.

Biotherm Homme’s choice of Zoon over a more recognizable celeb or model got me thinking about the kinds of men who’ve appeared in grooming campaigns over the years. How do brand ambassadors reflect men’s evolving attitudes toward grooming? I decided to take a closer look at some of the most iconic faces from the past 30 years of marketing grooming products to men. I’ve included men’s underwear ads in this roundup because, as intimate and personal products that haven’t always been marketed directly to men, they follow a similar trajectory to grooming ads, addressing men’s appearance-related aspirations through a focus on the male physique of the moment.

Putting Men In The Picture

In 1985, when Biotherm Homme’s first product, an anti-wrinkle cream for men, launched, only about a quarter of all men’s products were actually purchased by men, so marketing campaigns for men’s grooming products inevitably targeted women.

Women were still the focus in 1990, when Chanel launched a campaign for its new men’s cologne, Egoiste, in which the male subject never actually shows his face. The ads represented a shift for the brand. Arie Kopelman, then-president and chief operating officer of Chanel, spoke to the New York Times in 1991 about the campaign, explaining that, “The focus has always been on the women’s products. Until now, we’ve never put any marketing power behind the men’s fragrances.”

Mark Wahlberg for Calvin Klein, 1992

2015-03-27-1427487474-8797763-markwahlberg.jpg

In 1992, long before Bieber ever slunk around in CK boxers, Calvin Klein introduced Mark “Marky Mark” Wahlberg into its campaigns, and the rapper/actor’s abs as captured by the late legend Herb Ritts helped sexualize — and popularize — something as previously mundane as men’s underwear. Then-Calvin Klein Senior VP Neil Kraft, who was behind the Wahlberg campaign, recently explained to AdAge: “[Wahlberg] appealed to women, he appealed to gay men and he appealed to men who wanted to be him.” The campaign had a massive impact on the men’s underwear industry, boosting sales “exponentially.”

Tyson Beckford for Polo, 1993

2015-03-27-1427487499-8264717-TysonBeckford.jpg

With their Tyson Beckford campaigns, the all-American Polo Ralph Lauren brand introduced a face and a muscular, sculpted physique who could play Marky Mark’s game while giving the alpha male a distinctive new look. Beckford helped define the ’90s, to the point that in 2014 he was named by Vogue as the No. 1 male model of all time.

Larry Scott for Acqua di Gio, 1997-2007

2015-03-27-1427487579-4356191-LarryScott.jpg

Larry Scott was the face of Armani’s Acqua di Gio for a decade. He pioneered the now-iconic “wet guy” look, and it’s been a go-to for marketing men’s fragrances ever since. We don’t really know if he’s been rolling around on a beach, if he just surfaced from a deep dive or if he just stepped out of the shower, and it doesn’t really matter — we see the wet guy up close, with beads of water trickling down his face. He must smell good.

David Beckham for Armani, 2008

2015-03-27-1427487546-9758015-DavidBeckham.jpg

David Beckham was the face of Armani, and just about everything else, in the late 2000s. “The biggest metrosexual in Britain,” according to the man who coined the term, was also husband to a woman successful in her own right, a tattooed father and a legendary retired soccer player. Appearing in ads for Pepsi, Samsung, Adidas and Burger King, H&M and more, he represented the male ideal on an international scale: accomplished and attractive, with rebellious sex appeal. His signature scent, Intimately Beckham for Him, which launched in 2006, was one of the first male celebrity scents on the market.

Clive Owen for Bvlgari Man, 2010

2015-03-27-1427487608-5394885-CliveOwen.jpg

With its campaigns featuring Clive Owen, who had appeared in ads for Lancôme’s Hypnose Homme just three years earlier, Bvlgari Man also drew upon the actor’s power as a credible influencer. His poses in these ads are relaxed; they present him as a multidimensional, interesting guy, somebody you could see yourself having a drink with.

Isaiah Mustafa for Old Spice, 2010

2015-03-27-1427487632-1902003-IsaiahMustafa.jpg

Isaiah Mustafa’s Old Spice ads helped usher in the viral internet era with a memorably big splash of aftershave. The zany ads got people talking, and that meant they were talking about Old Spice — a brand many guys previously identified with their grandfathers — again. Brut retaliated that same year with its “Slap a man in a towel” “Brut slap” online campaign, in which a man somewhat resembling Mustafa, wearing a towel, could be slapped via a click of a mouse.

Michael Phelps for Head and Shoulders, 2012

2015-03-27-1427487656-3216691-MichaelPhelps.jpg

In recent years, companies began to select athletes over models and celebrities to promote men’s grooming products, and these athletes don’t all resemble David Beckham. As men who actually sweat, smell and expose themselves to the elements on a regular basis, athletes provided a more authentic opportunity to connect with men around the topic of male grooming needs.

At the Biotherm Homme party in Paris, Bixente Lizerazu, a current face of Biotherm Homme and a retired champion soccer star, explained to me how he witnessed grooming catch on in locker rooms: “It happened gradually, little by little, first of all in the changing rooms after training sessions, suddenly you noticed guys using creams. At first it was a little bit funny, or awkward, but it changed.” Brands seized on the opportunity to connect high-performance athletes with their products, especially when the opportunity was the 2012 Olympic Games, an event that had the entire world’s attention.

Ryan Lochte for Gillette, 2012

Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte were just two of 150 top athletes sponsored by P&G, the parent company of brands like Gillette and Head & Shoulders, at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Like the Old Spice example, this Gillette campaign is the unmistakeable product of a viral internet era, hashtags and all.

Dwyane Wade for Dove Men+Care, 2013

2015-03-27-1427487700-789679-DwyaneWade.jpg

In 2013, as consumers tired of the “doofus dad” archetype they’d been served for years, brands took realness and relatability to a whole new level. Dove Men+Care worked with NBA star Dwyane Wade and ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas for 2013’s “Real Moments” campaign, presenting an image of hands-on fatherhood that speaks to modern guys. Dwyane Wade appears at home, with his kids, a natural setting in which he’s not being presented as a useless dad or an unattainable hero, taking the locker-room endorsement to a place that really hits home.

Juan Betancourt for Tom Ford, 2013

2015-03-27-1427487724-6216678-JuanBetancourt.jpg

The interesting thing about model Juan Betancourt in this 2013 Tom Ford ad is that he has a facial hair. In 2013, we were deep in a “peak beard” moment (and it isn’t over yet). The interesting thing about this ad campaign is that, although this particular image recalls the “wet man” look we’re so used to seeing in men’s grooming ads, other images in the campaign show Betancourt actively grooming himself — wearing a clay mask in one image, applying an under-eye cream in another. “For the first time ever,” Josh Meyer, CEO of Brickell Men’s Products, points out, “starting in 2013, men spent more on skincare products than they did on shaving products.” No question about it: men’s grooming has gone mainstream.

Jonas Kessler for John Varvatos, 2014

2015-03-27-1427487747-3732935-JonasKessler.jpg

In this ad, part of his 2014 campaign for John Varvatos, the bearded Jonas Kessler may be shirtless, but his frame is not nearly as “ripped” as a Wahlberg, Beckford or Beckham. The diversification of the kinds of images used to sell men’s grooming products reflects the diversification of the market in general. Explains Meyer, “The larger an industry, the more fragmented and specific it gets.”

Whereas just a few years earlier, men might have been self-conscious to admit any involvement with grooming products, at this point, men are legitimately interested in the benefits of looking their best. They want to look “well-groomed, tan, [with] less wrinkles, fuller hair, [have] no [or] less acne, smooth silky skin and anti-aging options,” according to Larry H. Oskin, president and founder of Marketing Solutions, a marketing agency specialized in the beauty industry. As Meyer points out, “younger men (ages 25-40)… grew up using hair gel and other ‘metro’ hair products for men, so using skincare is a natural evolution.”

Beauty Chat With Elizabeth Lamont: On the Faces of La Prairie

I recently sat down with Elizabeth Lamont, the Vice President of Marketing at La Prairie, to discuss everything from her skincare routine, to her job and a must-have list. Go inside our conversation.

2015-03-16-1426467592-500413-wenn5922788.jpg

*Photo: Wenn, London 2012

What products were you most excited to try upon starting your role at LP?

Actually the very first La Prairie product I tried was before starting at the company. It was the Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex. I didn’t realize it was one of the older products in the collection because it struck me as so modern – the packing, the texture, the cool easy applying gel, the fact that it doubled as an eyeshadow primer when used on the lid – you could do so much with it.

That’s actually one of my favorite products too, because of the price and because it makes me feel like a mermaid! What’s one thing in your beauty routine you know you should do but you sometimes skip?
My Clarisonic. I stand there looking at the Clarisonic, and I swear it’s looking back at me, daring me to use it. Yet I still don’t pick it up. I’m kind of a lazy gal when it comes to washing my face. I don’t wear a lot of makeup but sometimes my makeup removal routine consists of a cotton pad doused in toner and that’s it. I probably shouldn’t say that.

Agreed. I’ve resorted to makeup towelettes on my nightstand. Okay, so, what are some products in your makeup bag right now that are almost gone?
Our Cellular Radiance Cream Blush. I have it in all four shades. And just so you know this is true, let me pull it out of my bag right now. This is Plum Glow, but all of them look like this and some of them are even more used up.

2015-03-16-1426469728-2503341-ElizabethLamontHeadshot3.jpg

I love this packaging! How do you recycle, or reuse your containers?

Actually it’s the blush container that I reuse, because it’s got the great little silver zip-case and I have a couple empty ones because I go through them. One of them has the teeny tiny gold safety pins that you get when you buy new clothes; you know the way the tags are attached. Another one of them has foreign coins in it, and then I also use the white case that our Cellular Power Infusion comes in – I use that case to protect special jewelry when I travel.

I’m pretty sure Paris Hilton uses the products, too! You know, I’ve always wondered why the brand doesn’t have an IT girl or a celebrity repping the brand, or some type of commercial ad with a face plastered to it?

We would never ascribe an ideal expectation to the people who use La Prairie. It’s for them to put their best face forward. So… everyone who uses La Prairie is the face of La Prairie.

Are there any simple luxuries you can’t live without?
A weekly manicure at the local Bloomie Nails around the corner is really a weekly luxury. Finding an hour to do yoga is a luxury, I can’t even tell you. Flannel sheets, love a flannel sheet. When is the last time you slept in flannel sheets? It’s winter time, go buy some.

Apple Watch Faces Major Challenge In Fashion Industry

By Nandita Bose and Piya Sinha-Roy

CHICAGO/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Apple CEO Tim Cook summed up the problem during a conversation with sales staff at a London Apple Store: “We’ve never sold anything as a company that people could try on before.”

With the expected launch this week of the Apple Watch, the company’s first new product in five years, Apple will be stepping into new territory.

To conquer the marketplace, the watch will have to appeal not only as a gadget but as a fashion statement, a fact tacitly acknowledged by Apple’s decision to launch its advertising campaign with a 12-page insert in the March issue of Vogue.

The company isn’t talking about plans for marketing the Apple Watch in advance of it’s much-touted “Spring Forward” event on Monday, but it clearly intends to keep a tight grip on initial sales and distribution, leaving many retailers guessing about when — or if — they’ll be able to sell it.

Sources with direct knowledge of the matter said that Best Buy Co Inc, one of the largest sellers of Apple products, may not get the watch at launch time, though the company wouldn’t comment on the situation.

Other large retailers, including Macy’s, Saks 5th Avenue, Bloomingdales and Barney’s said they had no immediate plans to carry the watch. Target and Nordstrom,along with all the major phone carriers, declined to comment on their plans, though a source with knowledge of the situation said Nordstrom has engaged in discussions with Apple.

“Apple is being cautious. There are too many unknowns around how this product will perform,” said Van Baker, research vice-president, technology research firm Gartner Inc.

That might mean restricting initial sales to company stores, where Apple has complete control over the experience and staff can be specially trained to sell the watch, Baker said.

Apple’s Cook seems very aware of the challenge. The Telegraph, which sent a reporter with the CEO to the company’s Covent Garden store, reported that he explained to the staff that selling the watch might require “tweaking the experience in the store.”

In the absence of hard information about what the tweaks might look like, speculation has been intense. The Washington Post last week suggested that Apple might add carpeting and mirrors and change store lighting to enhance the watch-buying experience.

Media outlets and Websites have also posited that the watch will be offered at special pop-up stores installed at luxury retailers such as Selfridges in London and Colette in Paris.

Apple hosted a private event at Colette last September, at which guests were able to try on the watch, but a spokesman for Colette declined to comment on whether the store would carry it.

Until now, wearable gadgets have not been big sellers for technology companies. Rival products such as Samsung’s Gear watches have sold poorly.

Apple hopes to change that, but it is still a big if whether the watch will appeal to buyers seeking a fashion accessory, especially if it needs to be upgraded every few years like Apple’s phones, tablets and computers.

“It could do wonders for the watch market if it means people might wear watches again, but realistically, there are a lot of doubts,” said Eric Wilson, fashion news director of InStyle.

“Fashion customers are more skeptical than anyone, so Apple has picked a tough crowd.”

Exploring the Many Faces of a Simple Kiss

The act of kissing has been an act that has been in existence since the dawn of time. A kiss expresses many different meanings according to who the person is that is delivering it and what his intent is. Kisses are given as a greeting, conveyed through the air or by a peck on the cheek. Kisses such as these are also imparted at the point when farewells are hailed. Then there are the kisses between family members such as mother and father along with children, between siblings, and other relatives. These fall into another category.

Casey Kasem and Mama Jean: The Faces of Lewy Body Dementia

Every disease needs a star. While I extend my sympathy to legendary disc jockey Casey Kasem and his family, it is with regret that I must welcome this week’s news that he has Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), because his diagnosis may finally bring LBD the attention it deserves. Perhaps Kasem will become synonymous with LBD in the way that baseball legend Lou Gehrig did with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and singer Karen Carpenter did with anorexia and bulimia. Kasem may be the most recognizable face of LBD right now, but the first and enduring face of LBD for me will always be my mother, Mama Jean. In the way that alcoholics share their stories to help other alcoholics, I share Mama Jean’s story to help those who are coping with LBD. Out of the darkness of her LBD came one enduring gift for me.

Lewy what? Almost everybody has heard of Alzheimer’s, but few are aware of LBD, an equally devastating dementia that is progressive and fatal. (LBD is named for Friederich H. Lewy, who discovered in the early 1900s the abnormal protein deposits that disrupt brain function.) In Alzheimer’s patients, lapses in short-term memory are among the first symptoms, while LBD patients might encounter severe disruptions in attention and judgment, hallucinations, delusions and acute sleep interruptions. According to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, LBD “affects an estimated 1.3 million individuals and their families in the United States, but many doctors or other medical professionals still are not familiar with LBD.”

I sure as hell can tell you about that.

But first let me introduce you to Mama Jean. She was a star to me. With her raven mane professionally done to a tease, makeup always camera ready, she was the Elizabeth Taylor of the small Texas town where I grew up. Like a star, she was self-made. Her jungle-red fingernails clawed out a huge chunk of the financial pie as a stockbroker in the 1980s — no small feat in what was still a good ole boys’ club. When she overheard one broker bragging about how he poached clients, she stuck her head in his office and said, “I heard what you just said. Let me tell you something. If you ever do that to me, I’ll cut your balls off.” He never did. Her ascent was marked by a graduating succession of luxury cars: Mercury Marquis, Lincoln Town Car, and then a series of Cadillacs. She was always in the driver’s seat.

I felt this my whole life, but especially when she flew from Texas to where I live in New York City to rescue me, her then 38-year-old, redheaded baby son. I was suffering from alcoholism, the disease that Betty Ford pulled out of the gutter when she became the face of it.

Mama Jean took control. The night before she sent me to a rehab in Palm Springs not far from Betty Ford’s clinic, she stared me down. With gritted teeth and a red finger-nailed point she said, “Your drinking days are over.” If it’s possible to be scared sober, Mama Jean could do the job.

Two years later she drove her Cadillac through the wall of her bridge club. Lucky for her fellow bridge players, she was early so no one was hurt, including her. A year after that she drove the repaired Cadillac to the beauty salon. Not unusual, except she wasn’t wearing any pants. Her priorities were in order, but the execution was misfiring.

When she started having wild hallucinations and believing her worst nightmares were true, Earl, my dad, and Jeffrey, my brother, made a series of visits to doctors, none of whom ever mentioned Lewy Body Dementia as a possible cause. They never mentioned LBD, period. The first we heard of it was from a family friend whose husband had died of LBD.

Not long after that pant-less drive, Mama Jean’s mind exploded into a bad acid trip of wild hallucinations and delusions and she had to be hospitalized. The facility was comfortable and she was given some lovely pills to stabilize her, but no diagnosis came. Again, LBD was never even mentioned — and this was the geriatric unit of the facility. We got our answer when Jeffrey found a neurologist who specializes in memory disorder. Thanks to that family friend and not to any of the doctors we’d seen to date, we had LBD in the dark corner of our minds. Still, when the diagnosis came it was a punch in the stomach. In fact, Mama Jean punched the neurologist who diagnosed her. During the exam he tested her reflexes with a rubber-headed hammer hit to the knee and she hit him back, right in the gut.

“No patient’s ever done that to me before,” the stunned doctor said.

“You’ve never met Jean Brickhouse,” my father beamed with pride.

Mama Jean’s mind was already gone, but her reflexes — the ones that declared, “Don’t mess with me, I’m in charge,” — were still firing. It was the kind of moment — a brilliant spark of lucidity — that crystalizes the essence of a person after their mind has been hijacked.

Like her Cadillac and the bridge club wall, her disease and my disease collided the first time I saw her after she went haywire. It was my turn to come to her rescue; so I took the reverse flight — New York to Texas — she had taken almost three years prior when she put me into rehab. I was still struggling with booze and had relapsed a few times but never told her.

However hard I tried to prepare for the worst, I kept harboring fantasies that I would somehow master the code and bring her back. Jeffrey warned me that she might not know me. I nodded yes, but part of me didn’t believe that that was possible.

Did she know me? I can’t say. At one point she smiled and told me that with my pretty red hair I reminded her of… and then she trailed off. Everything she said that day lacked something she had never lacked: conviction.

When it was time to leave we stood in the hall and I hugged her goodbye. When I turned to walk away her hands clamped my forearm in a vice grip. It hurt. I turned and she stood staring at me, her teeth gritted. She was furious with me and about to let me have it. She kept one hand gripped on my arm and released the other to point her index finger at me in accusation. “You’ve been drinking.” She was having one of those LBD, worst-nightmares-are-true moments.

“No I haven’t.” I hadn’t. I had seven months sober and felt like I might finally reach one year.

“You better not be.”

“Remember, Mama? That’s all behind us. You took care of that. I have you to thank. You don’t have to worry anymore.”

She looked at me warily before she accepted what I said. “Okay, but promise me. Promise.”

“I promise.” I thought, If I can’t stay sober for myself, do it for her.

She stood there silently, her eyes fixed on me. For one last time — before LBD claimed her forever — she was in charge.

Mama Jean died five months later, just a week shy of my first year of sobriety. I’ve been sober ever since. For me the star of LBD is Mama Jean.

Jamie Brickhouse is the author of Dangerous When Wet, a darkly comic memoir about booze, sex and his mother Mama Jean to be published by St. Martin’s Press in spring 2015.
