HER NAME IS RIO: The 2016 Summer Olympics aren’t the only big attraction in Brazil next year. Word has it Nicolas Ghesquière is heading to Rio next May to stage Louis Vuitton’s next cruise collection. The date of the show and other details could not immediately be learned.
France’s biggest fashion houses have been taking their itinerant shows farther afield. Last year, Louis Vuitton traveled to Palm Springs, Calif.
It all started at Café de Flore. On a picturesque corner of the Boulevard Saint-Germain, the onetime postwar intellectuals’ hangout is constantly filled with designers and editors, trading Fashion Week gossip year-round. Three summers ago during the couture shows in Paris, Stacey Caldwell had popped by for a glass of champagne, when she spotted a familiar white powdered ponytail and fingerless black gloves—Karl Lagerfeld, of course, stopping to pick up his morning paper.
Caldwell, vice president of global wholesale at Thakoon, had made a game of spotting Lagerfeld on her frequent trips to Paris—Karl browsing the racks at Colette, for instance—but on that particular day, she paid more attention to the giddy fans approaching the Kaiser. “They would act like they were the only ones lucky enough to spot him, and then two minutes later someone else would do the exact same thing,” she says.

Conferring with her longtime friend Ajiri Aki, a fashion video producer based in Paris’s Eleventh Arrondissement, they decided to write a fashion-forward children’s book parody, starring the industry’s most iconic living figure. Where’s Karl?, out next month from Random House, follows a fictional blogger named Florence de la Sabine, or Fleur, as she chases Karl and the international fashion flock through fifteen cities in twelve months—from Chanel’s Grand Palais show in Paris to Art Basel Miami Beach, even on Christmas vacation to Tulum. “That tells you a lot about the psyche of the industry,” Aki says. “Everyone claims to be tired of it, but secretly, they love it.”
Each scene was drawn from thousands of reference photos that the two shared on Pinterest boards with illustrator Michelle Baron. There’s Thakoon and Lily Aldridge raiding the cash register in Karl’s Hong Kong pop-up, while Phoebe Philo and Riccardo Tisci pose next to Hello Kitty in Shibuya. In New York for the Met Gala, you’ll even find the Olsen twins wearing the exact vintage ballgowns they sported at last year’s Charles James–themed event.
“That’s the real fun—you think you’re looking for Karl,” Caldwell says, “but you’re recognizing all these fashion people along the way.”

The typical bathroom doesn’t draw attention to itself. Among the rooms in your house, it’s the runt — small, tucked away, a bit bland, and silent as it bears witness to unspeakable acts of ugh. It’s a private place, all about function and utility … until now.
To give your bathroom a bit more character, we partnered with Quilted Northern to round up some quirky fixtures you may not have known you needed — and boy, do they have a lot to say!
1. This Q-Tip Holder Is Like: “TAKE ME TO YOUR EARLOBE.”
Pissellino Cotton Swabs Holder by Stefano Giovannoni on Alessi
2. This Octopus Plunger Is Like: “YOU OCTO-PY MY SEAT”
11. This Darth Vader Soap Dispenser Is Like: “MAY THE SOAP BE WITH YOU.”
These quirky objects are silent witnesses to all that goes on in the bathroom. They can’t forget what happens in the bathroom … but you can when you use Quilted Northern. The toilet paper works so well you can completely forget your bathroom experience. Quilted Northern: Designed to be Forgotten.

AKRON, OH—Squandering the authority and respect accumulated during his tenure, Pantheon Systems senior manager Robert Crawford, 52, reportedly had his clout instantly evaporate Thursday upon his being seen wearing shorts at the company’s annual summer picnic. “Hey there, good to see you,” said the formerly intimidating supervisor, who moments after arriving at the Pantheon picnic site in a pair of khaki Izod shorts that rose above his knobby, pallid knees had caused his immense levels of influence to dissipate within a matter of seconds. “Nice day for this, huh? Hey, where can I get one of those burgers?” At press time, Pantheon’s employees who witnessed their boss inadvertently expose his pale, tufted stomach while reaching to catch an incoming Frisbee had silently resolved to demand a raise on Monday.
WASHINGTON—Following decades of debate over the constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the U.S. Supreme Court today handed down a 5-4 ruling in favor of the most buck-wild, balls-to-the-wall gay pride parade this country has ever seen. “After reviewing the constitutional underpinnings of this case, the court finds that it is discriminatory for states to deny the right to the most out-of-control, bonkers gay pride parade that anyone could possibly imagine,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion, which outlined at length the elaborate floats, billowing rainbow flags, and phalanxes of outlandishly dressed participants, barely scratching the surface of how completely bananas things are about to get. “This decision confirms what should be obvious: The government cannot prevent a nonstop bacchanal surging through the streets of every American city. We’re talking half-naked lesbians covered in body paint, rollerblading homosexuals in brightly colored Native American headdresses and …
Growing up, maybe you had a handshake with your best friend that you thought was pretty special and unique. Whatever that handshake was, and whatever it meant to you, it should now be considered garbage. That’s right. A rugby team from the Netherlands has just retroactively destroyed your childhood.
The Dutch website Dumpert posted a video a couple of days ago of a Netherlands rugby team going through the motions of what very well may be the world’s best handshake. Since the initial posting, the video has been turned into a GIF that has started going viral in the U.S. — again, because it’s likely the best handshake you’ll ever see.
Call your old friend, it’s time you two had the talk. Give your reasons. Say it’s not his or her fault. But admit it one another: Your handshake was nothing compared to what you just saw these orange Dutchmen do.

There are many reasons people love Game of Thrones—bloodshed, deceit, illicit affairs, dragons—but our favorite part is trying to place that guy from that show. Or the girl from that thing. With such an expansive cast, all dressed in the style of the Seven Kingdoms, it’s sometimes hard to identify even the most prolific character actor on the HBO series. Behold, eleven supporting characters that you can’t place from Game of Thrones.
What was the best film of 2014? The Oscars said Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance). The New York Film Critics said it was Boyhood. The LA Film Critics Association agreed, naming The Grand Budapest Hotel as the runner-up. But if the IRAs have anything to say about it, the movie that might well rise in stature and come to be remembered as one of the defining films of the year is…Nightcrawler. That was the big winner at the 40th annual IRA Awards handed out over the weekend. It swept most major awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. Despite a lot of acclaim (and a juicy supporting performance from Renee Russo that should have snagged her an Oscar nomination), it was passed over at the Oscars and by most critics groups. It grossed less than $ 40 million worldwide (most of that in the US), so chances are you haven’t seen it yet. You should.
But wait! Who are the IRAs? The IRAs is a mysterious but august film society that has voted on the best films of the year since 1976. More international and indie focused than the Oscars, more mercurial than the LA Film Critics and more loyal to their favorites than the Golden Globes, the IRAs met over the weekend, voting for the best film of 2014 (along with all the usual other categories) and capping off a two-year debate by finalizing their picks for the best films of the 1960s. They have no more claim to pronounce the best films of the year than anyone else but they’ve been doing it for decades so, hey, it’s tradition!
Below are their votes — including nominees and winners in major categories — followed by its list of the Top 100 Films of the 1960s. If you want to see films that will endure, you could do worse than watch all five of the Best Picture nominees. And are you a serious film buff? Well, tell me, how many of the movies on the 1960s list have you seen?

We never thought we’d see the day when celebs like Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie were considered style icons. But believe it or not, that day has arrived. While their fashion choices in the early aughts may have been cringe-worthy, today they are among some of the best-dressed women in the world.
After seeing the celebrity style transformations below, we have a feeling you’re going to start believing in miracles — just kidding (kind of). If you’re thinking of changing up your fashion game in 2015, you’re going to want to take some inspiration from the stars who have done total style 180’s. It just goes to show, anything is possible.

This time of year, people all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Readers of HuffPost Weird News reportedly see him all throughout the year, in everything from chicken to waves and trees.
These “Sacred Sightings” are always popular, both with believers, who feel the pictures confirm that God is truly everywhere, and with people impressed with the human ability to create patterns from what are basically random shapes.
Of course, every picture tells a story and these stories are just as weird as the photos.
