Maison Standards, Pascal Humbert Team Up

NOT QUITE STANDARD: French fashion label Maison Standards is teaming up with uniform designer Pascal Humbert to create a collection of a dozen pieces.
The new line, set to launch in September, initially includes two suits for women, two for men, a skirt, military shirts and a sailor coat,with prices ranging from 70 euros, or $ 80 at current exchange, for the shirts to 195 euros, or $ 222, for the navy sailor coat. The suits are to be manufactured at Italian high-end woolen mill Vitale Barberis.
“For us, it’s about broadening our offer, with a new wardrobe that is more chic, more structuring,” said Uriel Karsenti, founder of Maison Standards. Karsenti said Humbert’s design work on uniforms grabbed his attention because of its similarities with Maison Standards’ raison d’être, which is to “find the right harmony between discretion and recognizable symbols.”
The Paris-based designer, who in the past has presented a signature label during couture week, designs uniforms for luxury brands, including most recently Biotherm.
“[The silhouettes of the Maison Standards line] are very androgynous. But men’s clothes are made for men and women’s for women. We have different measurements,” Humbert said.
The same holds true when it comes to making uniforms:  “It’s nearly impossible to make something that fits

Commentary: Unfortunately, Nobody Met Our Standards To Be September’s ‘Penthouse’ Pet

In the publishing business, editorial standards are everything, and as one of the world’s most venerable men’s magazines, Penthouse takes the quality of its work very seriously. We would never abuse our readers’ trust by running a piece that doesn’t live up to the ideals upon which this periodical was founded, even if that means making the unprecedented decision not to print a beloved regular feature.

And sadly, no candidate has met the requirements necessary to be named September’s Penthouse Pet.

Please know that declining to select a Pet of the Month for the first time in our 46-year history is not an action we take lightly. As stewards of this publication’s legacy, we have an exacting set of standards to uphold, especially when it comes to selecting our featured Pet. There is simply no room in our pages for a busty beauty who is …

News in Brief: New Statewide Education Standards Require Teachers To Forever Change Lives Of 30% Of Students

SPRINGFIELD, IL—In an effort to hold classroom instructors more accountable, the Illinois State Board of Education unveiled new statewide education standards Friday that require public school teachers to forever change the lives of at least 30 percent of their students. “Under our updated educator evaluation policy, teachers must make an unforgettable, lifelong impact on at least three of every 10 students and instill a love of learning in them that lasts the rest of their lives,” said chairman James Meeks, adding that based on the annual assessments, if 30 percent of students don’t recall a particular teacher’s name when asked to identify the most influential and inspiring person in their lives, that instructor would be promptly dismissed. “We are imposing these standards to make certain that a significant proportion of students in any given classroom can someday look back and say, ‘That teacher changed the course of …

Vlogger Jackie Aina Takes On World Standards Of Beauty, One Makeup Look At A Time

Beauty vlogger Jackie Aina is taking us around the world on her face. At least that’s the aim of her latest video, “The Worldwide Standard of Beauty.”

Aina asked her followers to tell her about their ethnicity, culture and what the ideal standard of beauty is where they’re from. She then used that information along with a bit of research to recreate makeup looks from six different countries: Australia, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, France, South Korea and the U.S.

The looks aren’t as drastically different as you might expect, but it was refreshing to read the comments from her followers about beauty standards in other countries. While some of the responses Aina received touched on actual makeup application, the majority discussed skin color and how fairer or darker hues play into standards of beauty.

One commenter from Australia wrote, “…the culture I live in values tanned skin, being pale is not seen as beautiful…” On the other hand, an Indonesian commenter said, “In Southeast Asia having dark skin is considered unattractive. So whitening products are very popular there.”

Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

‘Have Your Own Standards’: Stephen Colbert Offers Spot-On Life Advice In Wake Forest Commencement Speech

“I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards.”

Those were some of the words of wisdom uttered by comedian Stephen Colbert during his commencement address to the graduates of North Carolina’s Wake Forest University on Monday.

In his address, Colbert, who left the “The Colbert Report” last year and will take over the “Late Show” later this year, spoke to the graduates about change and the unknown — both things, he noted, he’s intimately familiar with.

“I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over,” he said. “It’s time to say goodbye to the person we’ve become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we’re going to be. For me, I’ll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually.”

In a world full of uncertainty and people who want to tear you down, Colbert stressed the importance of developing your own set of values and beliefs.

“People my age will sometimes say to you, ‘Hey, that work you did, that thing you said, that cause you championed — it’s not good,’” he said. “Having your own standards will help you weather moments like that … [and will allow] you to perceive success where others may see failure.”

Of course, it wasn’t all serious talk for the late night host. Colbert joked about the hot weather, poked fun at the history of the college and some of the school’s traditions, and even joked about #TheDress.

“Congratulations to you, the class of 2015,” Colbert said in the introduction of his speech. “You did it and you look amazing. Although it’s a little embarrassing you all showed up in the same outfit. Really, even all of the accessories are the same. Everyone has a black and gold tassel — or is it blue and white? Grandparents, just know this was the issue that divided a generation. You had the Vietnam War, your grandchildren had an ambiguously colored Tumblr post.”

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Wake Forest University awarded degrees to 1,861 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Before his commencement speech, Colbert was presented with an honorary doctorate of humane letters.

Watch Colbert’s Wake Forest commencement speech in the video above.

Nigel Barker Talks ‘Cookie Cutter’ Beauty Standards

As a longtime fashion photographer and HeForShe advocate, Nigel Barker has a lot to say about the definition of beauty within the fashion industry, especially since his mother was a Sri Lankan model in the 1960s.

“Of course, if you think about the ’60s and the ’70s, there were very few people of ethnicities, of color, modeling and in pictures and in advertising. So that was a very tough time,” he told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani.

Growing up with such a “powerful, strong matriarchal figure” instilled some serious values about beauty standards in Barker.

She made me realize that if you push through and you struggle and you don’t take ‘no’ for an answer, that you can make a difference. You can make people realize that the face of beauty doesn’t have to be whitewashed, doesn’t have to be a certain shape or size, doesn’t have to be cookie cutter — that you can change the stereotypes and you can make a difference.

The former “America’s Next Top Model” judge also talked traditional gender expectations and how he is raising his children to break them — starting in the kitchen.

“I bring my son into the kitchen with me and my wife and my daughter and we all cook together,” he said. “We all do everything together and there is no you get this and you get that. You’re blue and you’re pink. You know, you get the cars and you get the dolls.”

Check out Nigel Barker’s interview with HuffPost Live above.
