Great minds think alike.
Jeremy Scott will be staging his pre-fall 2020 women’s Moschino show Dec. 9 in the subway. But unlike Tom Ford’s moody spring 2020 extravaganza that had showgoers sitting on the platform of the abandoned Bowery station, Scott’s show will be inside the subway cars at the New York Transit Museum, the country’s largest museum devoted to urban public transportation history.
“I have never had a Moschino show in New York besides H&M and I thought there would be nothing more quintessential New York than the subway,” said Scott, who lived in the city when he attended Parsons School of Design. “I love all the people and characters you experience and the way it’s a melting pot of style. When I was in school, I remember the subway being a spotlight when you were dressed up, because it’s very brightly lit. It’s already like a runway.”

At the museum, guests will also be able to learn about the history of the New York City subway, bus and commuter rail systems. “They have all the old subway cars going from the 1940s, when they had wicker seats, and all the ads from

PARIS — For its first fashion show outside of France, AMI is headed to Shanghai. Signaling a fresh Asian thrust for the brand, the show will be held on Oct. 12, preceded by pop-up stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, which will open on Oct. 1.
“We’re heading into our ninth year and the number nine is a lucky number for me so we decided to celebrate this anniversary rather than the 10th,” Alexandre Mattiussi, AMI creative director, told WWD.
Mattiussi, who showed his label’s first collection in January 2011, said the label has a certain resonance in Asia.
“It’s a French designer at an affordable price point,” is how chief executive officer Nicolas Santi-Weil described the label’s positioning. Mattiussi started the label because “he loved beautiful things but he felt a little disconnected with reality because all the garments he was designing were sold at a price point that he could not afford himself,” said Santi-Weil, recalling the designer’s days at Givenchy.
“AMI is appreciated in Asia because it’s a Parisian postcard,” said Mattiussi. At the same time, he said he might make small adjustments, like changing a fabric or a certain color.
“We continue the story we started in Europe, it’s uninterrupted, the
Karl Lagerfeld’s most fantastical Chanel fashion show sets are the subject of the upcoming Rizzoli book “Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows.”
A collection of images by English photographer Simon Procter, the book documents many of the late Chanel designer’s runways from the last 10 years, including his very last collection for the fall 2019 ready-to-wear season — shown at the Grand Palais, designed to resemble a snowy Alpine ski resort — two weeks after his death.
“Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows” book cover
As Lagerfeld once stated, his set design ideas would come to him in his sleep. Procter’s images reflect the grandeur of these sets, including when the Grand Palais was transformed into a tropical beach, a 100-foot-high waterfall and a rocket ship, to name a few.
Procter also gives a behind-the-scenes look at many of Lagerfeld’s shows, documenting intimate moments between the designer and his model muses.
“I was lucky enough to meet him many times over the years; it was always a delight and we always did great work,” Procter writes in the book’s preface. “The two things I remember most were that he always personally greeted everyone in the room. The other, that he was very, very funny. Many times whoever was

After more than three decades in the fashion industry, most notably as the cofounder of the Designers & Agents trade show, Barbara Kramer is pivoting to cannabis.
Kramer has opened The Plant Lore, a full-service agency offering branding and product development, sales representation and retail support. Based in Los Angeles, she and her team are representing 10 high-end brands making CBD-infused products, including CBD + Nature (skincare); Gron (beauty and confections); Hello Goldie (tea); Mimoi (color face foundation with SPF); Ondo (tinctures), and Beboe (CBD vape pens). They have partnered with Wunderlich Kaplan Communications to offer brands public relations support.
“I have always been interested in coloring outside the lines,” said Kramer, whose entrepreneurial spirit has moved her from New York to L.A. several times, while she was working as a showroom owner and sales agent for such fashion brands as Tocca, Jean Paul Gaultier and Petit Bateau. She and Ed Mandelbaum started D&A in 1996, focusing on the advanced contemporary category, and expanded the fair beyond New York and L.A. to Paris and Tokyo. Over the years, she’s produced runway shows, collaborated with the CFDA on events and been a buyer for Tootsie Plohound shoe stores. Three years ago, when she started
Even before Common became the example of how a man is supposed to go about life and the obstacles it brings, he was still dropping gems in his records about what it takes to face the trials and tribulations that we’re sure to go through as we grow. Needless to say he’s only gotten better at it throughout the years.
In his Jill Scott and Samora Pinderhighes assisted clip to “Show Me That You Love,” the Hip-Hop OG highlights the moments spent with his daughter (or lack thereof) and how it helped him take a more active role in her life. Lesson!
Keeping with the theme of Hip-Hop OG’s, Little Brother makes their long awaited return to the game and in their retro visual to “Black Magic (Make It Better)” take to Black Wall Street in Durham, NC to rock a crowd that’s been waiting for this vibe to groove to for years.

U.S. Polo Assn. has teamed with Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council to sponsor a new TV and digital show called “Women in Polo: The Palm Beaches,” a 30-minute in-depth look at past, present and future female polo players. The show’s release is in tandem with U.S. Polo Assn.’s yearlong brand campaign, “Inspiring Others,” supporting female polo players through women’s training programs, charities, tournaments, as well as lifestyle and fashion events. The launch is timed with Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26 which commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“With U.S. Polo Assn. being the official brand of the United States Polo Association, it was important for us to recognize these amazing women and share their inspirational stories both on and off the polo field,” said J. Michael Prince, president and chief executive officer of USPA Global Licensing Inc., which manages the multi-billion U.S. Polo Assn. brand.
The show will reach more than 100 million households across a national audience and will air Labor Day weekend on the TVG network, which focuses on equestrian sports. In addition to the national broadcast, the show will air on ThePalmBeaches.tv and be available in Palm Beach County hotels and
The future of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is still up in the air. But some people — even some former Angels — don’t seem to care.
In fact, when asked about the show by a fan on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” model and actress Kate Upton, who is also a former Victoria’s Secret catalogue model, likened the whole affair to a “snooze fest.”
“We’re sick of seeing the same body type,” Upton said. “You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented.”
Upton doesn’t seem to be the only one bored by the Fashion Show. Viewership of the annual extravaganza — once considered one of the most sought-after events in the industry — has consistently fallen in recent years.
It didn’t help when Ed Razek, former chief marketing officer of L Brands, parent company to Victoria’s Secret, told Vogue magazine during last fall’s show in New York that “no one had any interest,” in seeing transgender or plus-size models in the fashion show. “Because the show is a fantasy.”
Razek’s comments quickly caused a fury online. (He later apologized by way of social media.)
But the damage was down. In an era of MeToo and body positivity,

THE ART OF TRAVEL: Kim Jones is deepening his ties to the art world. The designer plans to show his Dior pre-fall men’s wear collection in Miami on Dec. 3.
Jones staged his first traveling men’s show last year with a men’s pre-fall runway display in Tokyo, featuring a monumental sculpture by Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama. He will hit Miami two days before the start of Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the highlights of the year for art collectors and fashion brands alike.
With collaborations with Kaws, Raymond Pettibon and Daniel Arsham under his belt, it’s highly likely that Jones will tap another artist to work on the show.
“When I do these collections, I always think about what’s going to go in the exhibitions about Dior or Vuitton, whenever, in 50 years’ time, so it’s kind of important to have things that can create a legacy for the brand further along the line,” he told WWD recently.
The choice of location reflects not just Dior’s long-term relationship with the U.S., but also the strategic importance of the U.S. market, which accounted for 23 percent of sales at parent company LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in the first half of 2019.

The Bruce McMouse Show is a previously never-before-seen film that tells the story of how Paul McCartney and Wings came to meet the inimitable impresario Bruce McMouse. Part concert film, part animated feature, 'The Bruce McMouse Show' features footage from Wings’ 1972 European tour, combined with animated scenes that introduce a family of mice living under the stage. After opening the film with ‘Big Barn Bed’, the camera takes us down through the floorboards into this charming animated world. We see Bruce McMouse regale his children with stories from his past, when son Soily rushes into the room in a whirlwind of excitement announcing that “The Wings” are playing above them. As the concert plays on, Bruce declares to his wife Yvonne that Paul and the band need his help. Bruce then proceeds to venture on stage to offers his services as producer… The film was directed by Barry Chattington and produced by Roger Cherrill with the live elements taken from four shows in The Netherlands and Germany in 1972. Paul viewed the initial concert edit and realised there was great potential in the material captured. Prior to the European tour he had the idea of a family of mice and sketched the characters. Picking up the idea, Eric Wylam took Paul’s sketches and created the final McMouse family. This storyline was incorporated and used as a linking theme within the concert footage. The voice-overs for the animated mice took place at the end of 1973, recorded by Paul and Linda McCartney, Deryck Guyler, Pat Coombs and Derek Nimmo. Production stretched from 1972 through to 1977 when the film was complete, however with changes in the band’s line-up and music scene, the project was held in the MPL archives until now. ‘The Bruce McMouse Show’ has been fully restored in 2018 alongside a brand-new stereo mix created at AIR Studios and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.

Dave Chappelle and his stand-up appearances are without a doubt a hot ticket no matter where he’s performing, and a Charlotte couple tried to score big for Chappelle’s Valentine’s Day show. After getting scammed out of $ 500 on Craigslist, Chappelle personally delivered the tickets to the victims and even kicked it with them a bit.
On Thursday night, Dave Chappelle hand-delivered tickets to his Valentine’s Day comedy show to a Charlotte couple who were scammed out of hundreds of dollars trying to purchase the tickets on Craigslist.
Not only did Chappelle hand-deliver the tickets, he sat down to chat with the couple and took time to take pictures with several people in the hotel restaurant.
On Wednesday, WBTV reported that a south Charlotte wife and mother claimed she paid a seller on Craigslist hundreds of dollars for tickets to see comedian Dave Chappelle at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, but never received the tickets.
Deidra Dickens thought she scored the deal of a lifetime on Craiglist to surprise her husband, Eddie, who is a huge fan of the comedian. However, the whole thing was a sham but Chappelle managed to save the day.
In video captured by the news outlet, Chappelle had dinner with the couple and posed for flicks for fans in a big-time show of class and grace. Way to go, Dave Chappelle.
Happy Valentine’s Day indeed.

The video taken from their apartment complex shows Bow Wow and Kiyomi Leslie Holden taking an elevator up to their unit after a night of partying. The rapper looks PISSED at Kiyomi Leslie, because he rips something from her hand, and appears to berate her.
The video shows rising tension between Bow Wow and Kiyomi Leslie leading up to their knock-down, drag-out brawl over the weekend in Atlanta, which led to both of them getting arrested for battery.
Bow Wow’s post-fight injuries, including bite marks, make it seem like he’s the one who caught the worse of the fade. However, we can’t condone either one of these two putting hands on each other, but particularly Bow Wow.
Watch the video below. By the looks of the other two individuals in the elevator, this was not an anomaly.

The stars came out for the 76th annual Golden Globes ceremony last night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, and all eyes were on the red carpet to see who pulled off the best looks. And they didn’t disappoint: Celebs turned out with classic outfits, daring ensembles, and yes, even a few questionable sartorial choices. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of the best dressed men from the 2019 red carpet. Looking to amp up your style game this year? Take some cues from these guys.
Supporting his wife Emily Blunt for her best actress in a musical or comedy nomination, Krasinski stood out in a sea of black suits with his dark navy ensemble. His Christian Louboutin shoes and matching black bow tie (sometimes black and navy do go together) added elegance to his red carpet style. If you’re getting tired of trotting out your same old black suit, take a tip from Krasinski and opt for navy blue instead.
It seems like Bradley Cooper can do anything—write, direct, act, and even pull off an all-white suit. Looking like the complete opposite of the rough-around-the edges musician he played in A Star is Born, the clean-shaven nominee stood out on the red carpet. If you’re considering a similar outfit, take note: His black shoes and bow tie keep him from looking like a polar bear.
The Black Panther himself rocked a custom patterned silver tux designed by Versace. His stylist Ashley Weston described the look as “a work of art”—and we agree.
Idris Elba arrived on the Golden Globes carpet in a patterned turquoise suit with shoes to match. Although he walked the carpet with his jacket unbuttoned and no tie in sight, the rumored next James Bond tidied up his look once he stepped onstage to present an award.
Although he’ll always be the King in The North in our hearts, Richard Madden took home the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV drama for his performance in Bodyguard. He strode down the red carpet in a classy black velvet suit—a great example of how to use different materials, rather than colors, to stand out from the crowd.
Walking the red carpet with his Black Panther co-stars in tow, Michael B. Jordan showed how to use accessories to update a classic look for the modern era: He rocked a black double-breasted Burberry tuxedo, and his diamond-studded lapel pin and Piaget watch made the perfect complements to his jacket. The on-screen villain definitely looked like one of the good guys at last night’s award show.
Christian Bale’s various body transformations throughout the years may have been surprising, but fans were also shocked to hear his Welsh accent onstage at the Golden Globes (where he thanked Satan for inspiring his performance as Dick Cheney). On the red carpet, the Vice star proved that a little color coordination goes a long way—his sleek all-black suit and tie combo worked perfectly with his wife’s black dress.

Knowledge@Wharton, University of Pennsylvania's online business journal, calls San Diego Comic-Con the “Super Bowl of pop culture”. The convention is the required pilgrimage for artists, actors, filmmakers, producers or screenwriters. Each year 130,000 fans gather, and where they go Hollywood follows. News coverage weighs heavily to celebrities, even though they are outnumbered thousands to one. The real stars aren’t the big-screen actors and showrunners but the small, bit-players roaming the halls; the attendees, whether they dress up in costumes or simply participate in any of the hundreds of panel sessions. From its early comic-book beginnings in the 1970s until today, the Con is all about superheroes and whom fans aspire to be: Better versions of themselves. One attendee calls Comic-Con “nerd paradise”, where for a few days oddball dreamers, crazy lovers of fantastic stories and ardent superhero fans can be free; the social rules constraining them everyday no longer apply. Everyone here has a story to tell, and “Comic-Con Heroes” tells them. Writer Joe Wilcox culminates five years of Cons by choosing a dozen attendees from the 2013 convention to profile. None is a celebrity you know, but each is a hero in the making. You will meet an archaeologist of toys, 14-Century knight and student of artificial intelligence. You will walk The Dark Knight’s sentimental journey, ride 19th-Century bicycles and time travel with Dr. Who. And you will learn that the best stories aren’t the ones we read or watch but those we live each day that seek to unleash the hidden hero within. This book entered the public domain on July 8, 2015.
MTV’s Wild ‘N Out might be known as the Nick Cannon show but the improv comedy series has developed a few stars in their own right, namely DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean.
Though they’ve come up as individual comics they’ve recently came together to form the threesome known as The 85 South Show. An internet/traveling show, The 85 South Show has been building a core following thanks to the talents of the aforementioned comedians.
Today (Oct. 23), the three jokers checked into The Breakfast Club where they clowned around every chance they got while giving listeners some insight into how they go about their lives.
Touching on topics from sex to why Karlous Miller thinks he got fired from Wild N’ Out, the interview was all kinds of comedy.
Here are the 9 things we learned from DC Young Fly, Chico Bean and Karlous Miller on The Breakfast Club.
1. Whose Idea Was It?
DC and Chico say that forming the 85 South Show was actually Miller’s idea. Being that they hung out regardless he felt they should take their conversations on the road and make a show of it.

Bumpy Johnson’s rise to power will be detailed in a new television series. Forest Whitaker has signed on to executive produce the show.
As the brainchild of Narcos co-creators Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein, the project will chronicle the gangster’s infamous war with the Genovese crime family to reclaim his former drug territory of Harlem.
Paul Sorvino, most known for his iconic role in Goodfellas, is slotted to play Frank Costello, an unofficial arbitrator for the Italian mob. Deadlinereports that Whitaker will play Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson and the pair will seemingly share a lot of on air time together as Johnson saved Costello’s life in prison years prior. The story line will also capture how Bumpy befriended Malcolm X during his fight for social equality during the 1960’s.
According to IMBD this will serve as a prequel to the 2007 film American Gangster which focused on Frank Lucas, the right hand man to Johnson, as as he became Harlem’s biggest narcotics trafficker. Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, Gregory Cioffi and Vincent D’Onofrio have also been confirmed as part of the cast.
The straight-to-series crime drama will air on Epix and is scheduled for a 2019 debut.
