Five Minutes With Zen-like Fashion Week Rookie Nathalie Kelley

Most fashion week rookies are all about the photo-ops, but not actress Nathalie Kelley. While her fellow celebrity models were primping before Thursday night’s Red Dress Collection, she sat in the lotus position reading Neil LaBute’s “The Way We Get By.”
Minutes away from her runway debut at the Manhattan Center, the “Fast and the Furious” actress was calm as could be, wearing her red Randi Rahm  dress under a monogrammed red robe. At the Red Dress to help the cause, Kelley said her identity and ego were not wrapped up in what was about to happen. “I don’t care where I’m placed or if I’m seen in the photo,” she said with a laugh. “I meditate a lot.”
Losing her phone in a cab en route to another fashion show earlier in the day did not rattle her either. “I made a decision that I wasn’t going to make it a problem,” she said. “It was so nice to be fully present. “Everybody is always waiting for the show to start [pretending to swipe a phone]. I was drinking it up. It’s theater — the setting, the sound, the lighting, even watching the people. As an actress, I’m devouring that.”

WATCH: Emma Gonzalez Stood In Silence For 6 Minutes 20 Seconds [VIDEO]

March For Our Lives In Washington, DC

Parkland shooting survivor and activist Emma Gonzalez delivered a short but potently resounding speech at today’s (March 24) March For Our Lives rally in Washington, DC. After naming each of the 17 victims of the shooting, she stood in silence for several minutes, only continuing after the amount of time the gunman was shooting passed. 

While naming her peers, Gonzalez listed the things they would never get to do again. Then she fell silent.

“Since the time that I came out here, it has been six minutes and 20 seconds,” said Gonzalez after her powerful moment of silence. “The shooter has ceased shooting and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape, and walk free for an hour before arrest. Fight for your lives, before it’s someone else’s job”

We stand with Emma, now and forever.

Kodak Black Freestyling For 12 Minutes Even Worse Than You Can Imagine

Black Thought set the bar ridiculously high for even the greatest of MC’s after his masterful 10-minute freestyle. Of course, other rappers are going to attempt something similar—but no one asked Kodak Black to try. 

Nevertheless, the Painting Pictures rapper dropped a video of himself freestyling for about 12 minutes.

Kodak Black is not known for delivering bars. But his freestyle manages to be even worse than you can possibly imagine. We’re not even go to bother translating any of the struggle lines because they’re just that terrible.

If you look at the comments, there are plenty of supporters who think this is lit. Don’t be fooled.

Watch 100 Years Of Wedding Dresses In 3 Minutes

Since 1900, there have been a few unchanging features of the Western wedding dress. White gowns have generally been favored (though historically, that wasn’t always true), longer dresses have remained in style and bridal veils have endured as a popular accessory.

But as with all fashion, wedding dresses evolved, adapting to the trends of the day.

In the video above, watch as Mode explores “100 Years of Wedding Gowns,” starting with a high-collared, lacy number from the 1910s and ending with a form-fitting, embellished gown from 2015.

Earlier this year, an infographic highlighting popular wedding dress styles went viral. The graphic, created by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, also detailed the shifts in bridal fashion from the 1900s to the 2010s. See it here.

Watch Young Women Destroy Gender-Based Barriers #LikeAGirl In Under 3 Minutes

A powerful new ad is reminding young women that they can conquer their limitations — like a girl.

On July 7, Always released a video called “Unstoppable,” featuring young girls talking about the ways society limits them because of their gender. The spot is a follow-up to Always’ #LikeAGirl Super Bowl ad.

In the three-minute clip, young girls are asked if they’ve ever been told they shouldn’t do something because they’re girls. Every single one of them responds with a resounding “yes.” “All the time. It’s a constant,” says one young woman.

In a survey conducted by Always, 72 percent of girls between the ages of 16 and 24 reported feeling limited by society because of their gender. Over half of the girls surveyed felt they lacked the confidence to pursue their goals after puberty.

“I can’t really like rescue anybody,” one young girl says. “It’s always the boys who rescue the girls in the stories.”

Always is partnering with 18-year-old actress and female empowerment advocate Maisie Williams to encourage girls to overcome the bullsh*t that gets thrown their way. Williams told The Huffington Post that gender-based expectations and stereotypes can be debilitating.

“These expectations have a profound effect on their confidence, especially at puberty. But I believe there are things we can do to change that,” Williams said. “I know what a big role confidence plays in achieving any goal, and I think it is vital for young women to stay confident at puberty and motivated to pursue their passions.”

Toward the end of the video, the girls are asked to write down the limitations they feel society puts on them. Their answers are heartbreaking:

“Can’t be brave.”

“Girls should be perfect.”

“Girls aren’t strong.”


The girls are then asked to write down these limitations on big white boxes. One by one each girl kicks and punches the boxes, metaphorically demolishing the structures that prevent women and girls from advancing every day.

“I think that you need to keep going with whatever you love to do and do anything you want,” says one girl at the end of the video. “You can conquer any fear you’ve had. Just live your dream and do whatever you want to do. That’s why I love the word unstoppable.”

Here’s to girls being unstoppable, brilliant, fearless, strong — and whatever the hell they want to be.

Watch This Sweet Couple Age 70 Years In Six Minutes

A month before their wedding, engaged couple Kristie Scherrer and Tavis Doucette participated in a fun and surprisingly emotional experiment. Using makeup and prosthetics, the pair was able to get a glimpse of what they’ll look like as they grow old together.

Cut Video collaborated with Field Day on the sweet six-minute video, which shows Kristie and Tavis — currently in their late 20s — as people in their…

“I hope you look like this,” Tavis says. “You look fantastic.”

“To see her look like this makes me just think of where we have gone to be next to each other looking like this,” he says. “What would have happened in between.”

And nineties:

“There’s some strange, comforting feeling seeing him this way,” Kristie says.

A Cut Video employee told BuzzFeed that the makeup artists used the couple’s family photos as a guide to what they might look like at that stage in their life.

According to their wedding website, Kristie and Tavis tied the knot on Friday. The making of the video, filmed roughly a month before the wedding, couldn’t have come at a better time.

“Especially being about to get married and embarking on all that, I couldn’t be more sure that this is what I want,” Kristie says at the end of the video. And with that, our hearts have officially turned to mush.

The world is full of hidden mysteries; mysteries that deserve asking the big questions.

Questions like, “Why are we here?” and “What does that springy thing near the base of the door do?”

If you’re a cat, the answer to the first question is, of course, “to play with that springy thing near the base of the door,” and the answer to the second question is irrelevant, because regardless of its actual function, it sure is fun to play with.

As evidence, we humbly submit this video for your consideration. It’s nothing but cats playing with door stoppers for two straight minutes, and it’s fantastic.

Meet the Warholas: Andy Warhol’s Family Set to Claim Their 15 Minutes With New Documentary

A few years ago, in one of life’s truly happy accidents, I was introduced to a descendant of one of the world’s great artists at an opening in Washington, D.C. The next thing I knew I was in Europe sitting around a conference table with other members of the family who shared the famous name. It was an extraordinary visit, and one of the most interesting days of my life.

As someone who writes about art (or tries to, at least), I was transfixed listening to these very normal people talk about their very abnormal ancestry and its effect on their family members. I got to thinking about how very important these people are, how wonderful it is that they are among us, and how much they can teach us.

My new friends gently rebuffed my requests to go public with this extraordinary experience and though I haven’t given up on wanting to help them tell their story, I don’t think it’s going to happen. For they know the price of being “out there” — from misconceptions about family fortune to surrender of privacy and the ability to forge their own way — and they just aren’t up for it. And while it’s a shame, I can’t say that I blame them. At all.

Last week when I read that a relative of the late Andy Warhol was venturing to make Uncle Andy, a documentary about him “from the family’s perspective,” my imagination — and because this is something I’ve spent a lot of time time thinking about, my heart — was immediately captured.

2015-03-16-1426520779-3498487-James_warhola_UncleAndyArchie_logo.jpg

So I reached out, of course, and found myself in a fantastic conversation with one Abby Warhola: 30-year-old granddaughter of Paul, oldest of the three Warhola brothers who passed away in January 2014. Abby lives in Pittsburgh, where most of the Warhola clan can still be found, with her partner Jesse and their 7-year-old daughter, Veva. And this is what she had to say about her project and her family:

CJ: Hi Abby! Where are you now and what are you doing?

AW: Hello! I’m at my grandmother’s house, Anne Warhola, Andy’s sister in law, who will be 91 this May. I stay with her three nights a week to help out. She is one of my favorites and I love interviewing her. She pulls no punches when talking about Uncle Andy and jokingly refers to him as being a pain in the ass…

CJ: You sure she’s joking?

AW: (laughs) I guess it depends on her mood. They had a typical brother-sister relationship.

2015-03-16-1426520820-2970333-AnneandPaulWarholaAbbyWarhola.jpg

Anne Warhola with her late husband Paul.

CJ: What’s it like being a Warhola, anyway? When did you first become aware of your interesting Uncle Andy?

AW: Well there’s never a dull or quiet moment when one of us are in the room! We are a very close-knit family who laughs a lot. I think as a whole we are a really eccentric and creative bunch. I don’t know if I was ever unaware, but once the Andy Warhol Museum opened in Pittsburgh, my life really changed. I had the chance to meet some of his famous friends, including Dennis Hopper, Lou Reed and Pee Wee Herman. It was pretty exciting.

CJ: The news of your film project has really caught fire in the last few days. Are you surprised by the reaction?

AW: For us, it has been a very surreal experience. It really confirms just how popular Andy has become. Within a week, the story was all over the world. I guess nothing is surprising when you’re talking about people being interested in Andy Warhol!

CJ: What do you do in real life? Is this your first film project?

AW: I do a little bit of everything. Primarily, I’m a photographer, but I’m also a designer and a letterpress printer. While I do shoot video, 16mm and super-8 film on various smaller projects, this is my first feature-length film.

CJ: So you are the one getting the attention at the moment, but this is actually a collaboration between you and your partner, Jesse, right? Tell us a little about him.

AW: Yes, Jesse and I are working on this together. He is a visual artist with a background in film. Jesse was really the one to push the idea of turning my family’s story into a documentary. I’m a little too close to it all, and honestly never thought it was something to pursue. It wasn’t until we started capturing these interviews that I realized how interesting my family really is.

2015-03-16-1426520984-2100084-2014_Dawson_Porch.JPG

Jesse, Abby & Veva

CJ: What made you and Jesse decide that now was the time? What does the broader Warhola family think of it?

AW: We’ve been filming for several years, but it wasn’t until my grandfather passed away in 2014 that we decided to push the project into a feature-length film. When his footage became finite, we felt the urgency to preserve it and create something bigger to honor both my grandfather and Uncle Andy’s legacies. My family is very supportive of the project. They are excited that someone within the family can finally share their unique story.

CJ: Is the museum or the foundation involved in any way?

AW: The Andy Warhol Museum has been very supportive! We have done some interviews and hope to work with them further. Since they are non-profit, they are unable to provide any financial support to commercial projects. The foundation has never had a relationship with the Paul Warhola family. Andy’s other brother, John Warhola, was involved with the foundation and Paul was not included in that relationship. Still, it is our understanding that the foundation was created to provide grants for contemporary artists, and since this film is about Warhol, it doesn’t fall within their guidelines of support anyway.

CJ: Tell me a bit about John and Paul. What did they think of their brother’s fame?

AW: Well, I can only speak for my grandfather, Paul. I didn’t really have a relationship with Uncle John. My grandfather might have been the proudest big brother in history. He absolutely loved telling Andy stories and actually saved every newspaper and magazine clipping that he saw.

2015-03-16-1426521087-1601900-AnneWarhola_1943PaulAndy.jpg

Paul & Andy

CJ: My impression has always been that there was a real distance between Andy and his family. Is this correct?

AW: It was never that Andy was distant to his family, he just kept his two worlds very far apart. The family visited him in N.Y.C. about once a month for nearly three decades. Whenever the family would visit, he was very strict about them not visiting the Factory, or letting them see his more adult “colorful” films. He was protective of them and enjoyed their presence in the privacy of his home.

2015-03-16-1426521144-1623226-AnneWarhola_1945DawsonPorch.jpg

Warhola clan, circa 1945, Pittsburgh

CJ: What’s the family’s general take nowadays on things like Silver Car Crash recently selling for over $ 100 million?

AW: I don’t think the incredible numbers his paintings go for now fully compute with us. The family is very proud of what Uncle Andy has achieved, but at this point his global stardom has stretched beyond anything we could have ever imagined. It’s wild to think that just one of those paintings could have changed my entire family’s life for good…

CJ: You’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film. Talk about that and why the decision to crowdfund?

AW: There’s a few things that appealed to us about Kickstarter. Raising funds this way empowers us to be completely independent and tell the story the way we know it. Another great aspect is the exposure you get from launching a campaign. We can say that the coverage on the project has truly blown us away. If anything, Kickstarter is a wonderful platform for getting the word out and discovering the people who are willing to support the project.

CJ: There is quite a bit out there at this point about Andy and his legacy — books, films, what have you — do you have any particular favorites?

AW: I actually haven’t read any books about him. I like to look at his picture books though. For instance I think Shoes, Shoes, Shoes is really just great. I loved Basquiat. David Bowie was my favorite Andy ever.

CJ: That movie was really great, wasn’t it? Some say that they never saw Andy happier than when Basquiat was in his life. And, yes, Bowie nailed it! And you should read Holy Terror by Bob Colacello. I’ll send you a copy!

AW: It really was a great! And please do send me a copy! I’ve heard from my uncle that it is a really great read.

CJ: Speaking of Colacello, are you working with anyone from the Factory days on the film or is it strictly a family affair?

AW: So far, Billy Name and Gerard Malanga have graciously contributed their photography, most of which is from the Factory days. Great iconic Andy images. We intended to speak with them and others who were close enough to Andy to know how he lived outside of the limelight and factory scene. However, we feel that it will be the family’s stories that will reveal a layer to Warhol that has not yet been shared.

CJ: What is there to tell about Andy that hasn’t been told? What kinds of things can we look forward to learning and whom will we see in the film?

AW: Well it’s no secret that Andy was very guarded and trusted few people, and rightfully so, considering the many nefarious characters who were looking to gain something from him. The family was this small circle of people that Andy could trust and rely on for support. When he was shot in 1968, his eldest nephew Paulie took care of him during that time and recalls the way that experience profoundly changed Andy. It is within these stories that you begin to understand what made Warhol such a complicated and fascinating person. Without giving away too much about the film, we can say that the family’s memories touch on everything, from the good, the bad and even a bit of the ugly.

CJ: So when is the Kickstarter deadline and do you feel like you are on track to raise what you need?

AW: The deadline is April 2nd at 6 p.m. eastern time. We currently have over $ 35k which is an encouraging start, but there still a long road ahead to achieve our goal of $ 175K.

CJ: I’ve noticed there are some wonderful and probably highly collectable rewards that come with different sponsorship levels as well. Discuss.

AW: Yes! This is the first time that the public has an opportunity to purchase Warhola family art! Much of the Warhola family shares this rare artistic talent. We are offering original silkscreens by Paul Warhola, and his works have been featured in galleries around the world. Since his passing there is only a limited number of these available. My Uncle James, who is known for Garbage Pail Kids, Mad Magazine, numerous Sci-Fi covers and illustrated children’s books, has offered signed copies of his books and even an original watercolor painting. My mother Madalen has contributed her beautiful Pysanky Ostrich Eggs, which she creates in the honor of the Warhola family tradition. My family is very proud of their Rusyn heritage and these eggs are truly one of the highlights.

CJ: Fantastic. Thank you for your time, Abby. This sounds like a very special project and I really wish you and Jesse the best with it. Keep us posted, ok?

AW: Absolutely. Thank you so much! We really appreciate you taking the time to hear about our project!

The Flash Facial Phenomenon: How to Get Better Skin in Less Than 10 Minutes

Flash Facials

A transformative facial sounds like a great way to close out 2014. But for those of us staring down the home stretch of a whirlwind year or a last-minute dash for the airport, the chances of fitting one in before New Year’s Eve may be slim. In this case, consider the latest wave of fast, easy, and effective at-home peels designed to make skin glow: Star dermatologist Dennis Gross, M.D., modeled his Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel after the in-office treatment he offers in his New York City practice; the two-step system dissolves dead cells with fifteen different types of acids and seals in moisture with potent youth-enhancing peptides. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles–based skin guru Ole Henriksen infused his Lemon Strip Flash Peel with exfoliating fruit acids to smooth and minimize pores—in ten minutes or less. When the clock is really ticking, REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial brightens and firms with a high dose of stabilized vitamin C: Massage it on, wait 60 seconds, and rinse—then dash for the door. Here, the best built-for-speed options to try before the ball drops.

Here’s Every Guy You’ll Meet On Tinder In Under Three Minutes

Spoiler alert: you’re probably still single.

Looking for a boyfriend in the age of Tinder has taken a lot of the pressure out of first dates. You swipe right, you choose a bar, you grab a drink and within an hour, you pretty much know if it’s going anywhere or not. But having your pick of the area’s most (and least) eligible bachelors at your fingertips can also be a bummer, especially when you realize that most of them are highly undatable.

In a new sketch from Michelle Markowitz, David Ross and Stephen Parkhurst, one woman gets to experience all the joys that Tinder has to offer, including self-indulgent jerks, cheap, crabby idiots and the one guy who you could sort of see yourself with (if he didn’t live in another state).

How to be a 'Creative' in 15 Minutes

I once read an advertising executive refer to her full-service agency as having a separate division of “creatives” on staff.

Whom were these “creatives,” I wondered, that the executive had referred to so pretentiously? And what about all the slighted “non-creatives” on staff? Hath not an accountant an imagination?

I envisioned the so-called “creatives” as a team of pale monkish types with wasted bodies locked in a dimly lit room, their bald heads conjoined by electrodes while resting in a warm pool — not unlike the “precogs” in the sci-fi film Minority Report.

This was the first time I had heard reference to a special creative class of workers and concluded that I, too, must be a creative.

While working in the early 1990s in public relations for a Fortune 500 company (rhymes with “Be-Me”), the most creative thing I remember doing was conspiring ways to look busy in order to justify my billable hours, which were measured in 15-minute increments on my timesheet. Now that took some creativity!

At lunch, for kicks my fellow creatives and I would wear white lab coats over our suits and roam the airplane-hanger-size plant, occasionally stopping by a random engineer’s work station. We’d shake our heads disapprovingly, scribble imaginary notes on a clipboard, and then walk away.

Perhaps my most creative accomplishment during my year-and-a-half stint there was to leave a Reader’s Digest article entitled “I am Joe’s Aneurism” that I found in my mother-in-law’s bathroom on the desk of one of the project managers.

Weeks later, the project manager stopped by my desk elated.

“Kipp, I’d kiss you if you were a girl!” he said. Apparently, the article would serve as the impetus for a new half-million dollar national television ad campaign.

I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity and where it comes from since the publication of my childhood memoir, Barracuda in the Attic (Fantagraphics 2013), qualifying me as a full member of the creative class.

After all, everyone in my family is a creative artist who has had at least one book published. Now it was my turn to fulfill my family birthright — or, at least, to carve out some space for myself on my bookshelf alongside my family members’ many books.

In my father’s literary memoir, Lucky Bruce (Biblioasis 2011), he speculated that he would have probably become a doctor or lawyer — instead of a writer — had his mother not dropped him from the changing table, forever altering his future. My mother once sheepishly admitted to having dropped my oldest brother Josh from the changing table and Josh went on to become a gifted musician and writer. I’m not aware of my middle brother Drew having been dropped, but he would eventually become a renowned cartoonist and illustrator. Even my mother, a retired acting and auditioning coach, has had several books published. Later in life, she claimed her mother used to whack her on the head, but my mother’s always been a bit of a drama queen.

As for me, I remember Josh playfully hurling me from a band shell when I was about three. I landed with a thud face-first in a mound of sand, chipping my front tooth. Could this be the reason why I went on to pursue a career in the creative class: first as a newspaper reporter, then public relations, then professional photography, and now writing? Years later, I dropped my son, Max, during a midnight feeding and viola! He became the first architect in our family line.

I’m not suggesting that dropping children from changing tables or flinging them from band shells is a means to foster creativity in a child. I’ll leave that theory to behavioral scientists-perhaps a future TEDTalk?

But one thing I’m certain of is that my parents raised us in an environment where creative self-expression was not only allowed, but encouraged.

As the youngest son of a celebrated writer whose career has spanned over half a century, I’ve heard stories all my life. My father has always had a habit of altering things, embellishing them, making them seem bigger and more special that perhaps they were. It’s as if he had been hardwired to ask: what if? Everything could be a launching point for another story, and that was something my brothers and I picked up on and were encouraged to do.

My son, Max, once came to me for writing advice while struggling with an English paper in grade school. I told him that when he is writing, he’s God — not in a religious sense, but as the source, the creator. This advice seemed to free him up to express himself and I now consider him a wonderful writer. Years later, I was proud to hear him still refer to this bit of writing advice I had given him as a child.

Now what can possibly be more creative than God?

Unless, of course, you’re a creative at an ad agency that bills at 15-minute increments.
