Holiday Style Essential:The Statement Earring
Huffington Post - 3 months
With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, the holiday season is in full swing -- and, with it, the holiday party circuit. I may be biased, but there's really only one thing you need to punch up a look and that's accessories and, more specifically, jewelry. You could wear the simplest LBD, but with smart accessorizing, you'll turn heads. A stylish pair of shoes? Sure, but after you make your entrance, they'll fade from the spotlight. Ditto for a cute clutch -- it remains unseen at a dinner party, tucked beneath the table and under your chair. A brilliant pair of statement earrings, however, goes a long way to light up your outfit and, since it beautifully frames your face, it pulls attention to where it matters: you. Designers Oren and Yarden Katz of Carbon & Hyde also highlight another reason why statement earrings are a holiday essential: "As we get into the colder season and start bundling up, stacking your ears is the best way to add a good sparkle while your wrists and neck ...

Ending Violence Against Women And Girls: If Not Today, When?
Huffington Post - 3 months
Gender equality is our goal. Bianca Jagger with children in Nicaragua Introduction  For over three decades I have campaigned for human rights throughout the world. I founded the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation (BJHRF) in 2005 to be a force for change, and a voice for the most vulnerable.  Protecting women's and children's rights has always been at the heart of my work. Today is International Day for Ending Violence against Women and Girls. Ninety-nine years after women achieved State Voting Rights in 1917 in USA and 88 years after the 1928 Equal Franchise Act that granted women the right to vote in the UK,  we have yet to achieve gender equality. Misogyny and insidious gender bias pervade our society and we are facing a global pandemic of violence against women and girls. It is unconscionable that rape, sexual assault, trafficking, FGM, forced marriage, and all forms of physical and sexual violence and discrimination are still prevalent. In their book 'Half t ...

Here's The Deal With That Pink Hat Lady Gaga's Been Wearing
Huffington Post - 4 months
In promoting her new album, “Joanne,” Lady Gaga seems to have traded in her love of zany Philip Treacy hats for more subdued (by Gaga standards) pink western-style lids. A photo posted by Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) on Oct 23, 2016 at 6:58am PDT She drove James Corden around wearing one during her Carpool Karaoke appearance. She also wore one in a new ad for Apple music, as well as during her SNL performances last weekend. A wide-brimmed pink hat is the only thing she’s wearing in the album cover art for “Joanne” (the album that dropped on October 21 and is named after Gaga’s middle name). So what’s up with that hat? For one thing, pink is her favorite color, according to Gladys Tamez, the milliner who designed these hats for Gaga. But it also represents a new direction for Gaga, Tamez told The Daily Beast: “[The pink hat] represents more of who she is inside as opposed to her public persona. The hat is central in a symbolic sense to who this new Lady G ...

Here Are Things You Still Don't Know About The Rolling Stones
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The Rolling Stones' 1972 tour across America had so many highlights, "from tear gas in Tucson to the jailing in Rhode Island to a not safe for work multi-day stay at the Playboy Mansion in Chicago," famed rock 'n' roll publicist Carol Klenfner recalls. In three words, "It was crazy." The Huffington Post spoke to Klenfner as part of a celebration -- thrown by Jose Cuervo -- of this apparently tequila-soaked tour. In Concourse A of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Cuervo set up a loose recreation of The Stones' touring plane, complete with bars stocked with special edition Stones-themed bottles of Jose Cuervo Especial tequila. I was unable to attend, but my lucky colleague took the sponsored party bus to the party and said, "I think all the food was made with tequila, so now I know that's something I really like." In a continuation of HuffPost's previous story on old Stones trivia, here are a few stories about Jagger and Richards straight from some ...

Sue Wong Alchemy & Masquerade 2016 (photo credit: Sam Fu) At the opening night of this fall's Fashion Week L.A., Sue Wong premiered her new 2016 'Alchemy and Masquerade' fashion line, an impressive display of 79 new gowns with requisite headpieces. So extensive was the hand worked materials and range of designs that it could have been a tour de force for any inventor. But one comes to realize that all this work and artistry is merely just another normal show for Sue Wong. She does them twice a year with her signature style of haute glamour that continues to impress and set a high bar for the industry. The fact the many celebrities are drawn to her work doesn't hurt either. Sue Wong has positioned herself in the world of fashion in a way many designers would admire and envy. Called by some an institution, she has offices and show rooms in New York and Los Angeles, and her clothing lines are sold at the finest retailers and boutiques throughout the U.S. and available in 2 ...

Find Azam Before It's Too Late
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The heartbreaking story of a missing 5-year-old Syrian refugee child named Azam has inspired an online search campaign that is holding out hope that the boy might be found alive somewhere in northern Europe. Azam Aldaham was last seen by BBC journalists at a hospital in the Serbian city of Belgrade. His face was bruised and badly swollen; bandages covered his jaw, which a medic told the journalists was broken and severely infected. In a story that aired on the show Panorama, BBC's John Sweeney was at a Serbian refugee camp when his team stumbled upon the injured Azam and a man who identified himself as the boy's father. The crew saw Azam once more, but this time the man wasn't there. They began asking questions about whom the boy was travelling with, and why he wasn't getting the medical attention he clearly needed. "It felt odd for a dad not to be around when his child was screaming in agony. Our interpreter had a quiet word with the boy, and something didn't add up," Sweeney ...

1970s Hair Icons That Will Make You Nostalgic
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Beyond the bell-bottoms and platform shoes in films and books, the 1970s was truly a transformative decade. Subcultures that spawned a generation of hipsters, rockers and radicals brought forth an eclectic mix of styles that we believe are best told through hair. From Farrah Fawcett's feathered cut to Debbie Harry's bleach-blonde bob to Pam Grier's Afro, these '70s hairdos echo the attitudes fueled by outspoken youth. To truly understand this great shift in society and politics, we've compiled a list of 16 hair icons whose strands tell a beautiful story. Farrah Fawcett The late "Charlie Angels" actress' flipped hairstyle remains one of the most sought-after looks, but somehow, many seem to fall flat of capturing Fawcett's big, bouncy mane. Pam Grier Grier's badass Afro commanded just as much attention and respect as the strong characters she played in blaxploitation films like "Foxy Brown" and "Coffy." Debbie Harry What impressionable young girl didn't reach for that bot ...

17 Ways To Stand Out In A Crowd Like Bianca Jagger
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Ladies, it's time to be bold and outspoken. And there's no better role model to look to than Bianca Jagger. She has always lived her life to the limit, pushing boundaries and never backing down. This is the woman who boldly claimed, "My marriage ended on my wedding day," after she filed for divorce from Mick Jagger in 1978. What makes her even more special is that her style matched her strong attitude. Statement-making accessories, plunging necklines and unique dresses marked Jagger's glamorous past. Here, we take a look back at her best style moments to see how you can achieve Jagger's je ne sais quoi. 1. Wear a solid black headband. If you have long straight hair, accentuate your beautiful face by pulling it back like Jagger did. 2. Let your sleeve "accidentally" slide off your shoulder. If you're wearing a long-sleeved dress, make it a little sultry and push one sleeve down. Eyes will immediately be drawn to you. 3. Wear a white suit on your wedding day. Forgo the dress a ...

New York Fashion Week, Day 5: Woman's World
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When a man designs for women, much is made about whether or not that designer gets women. If the consensus is that he does indeed understand the modern woman, the next question is usually: Well, does he like women? Do his collections empower women or do they marginalize them? The answer is almost always: "He designs for a particular woman", meaning the sophisticated social; the downtown chick; the fashion girl. Muses are often conjured. And the conversation dead ends at an icon. See Grace Kelly. Kate Moss. Sarah Jessica. Now, as a man who edits the country's most widely-read women's fashion magazine, I am particularly interested in seeing what women designers have in store for women each season. After all, they undoubtedly bring a first-person perspective to the equation. Nobody questions whether or not, a Donna Karan or a Victoria Beckham say, can relate to women. We have to assume that they not only design for their customer but also for themselves. How then does a female designe ...

When models and celebrities collide, it can seem like the stars have aligned to create the perfect, genetically-gifted couple. But you can have too much of a good thing. Thanks to "Sex and the City," we have a term for the men of Hollywood who seem to have an addiction to dating leggy beauties: modelizers.

Heavy Hitters To Compete In Charity Softball Game
Huffington Post - over 3 years
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. -- Its roster of participants is impressive: former President Bill Clinton, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, three Baldwins, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Simon, Jackson Pollock and Kurt Vonnegut, to name just a few. Organizers of the annual East Hampton Artists & Writers softball games are a little fuzzy about when they got their start – most peg it to around 1948, when artists including Pollock, Willem de Kooning and others organized casual pickup games on summer afternoons in their yards. Today they have become one of the premier events in the Hamptons, New York's summer resort for the haves and have mores. "I've played against some of the greatest house painters in the world," jokes reporter Carl Bernstein, making a common, good-natured accusation that his opponents pepper their rosters with "ringers" to gain a competitive advantage. This year's game, billed as the 65th and slated for Aug. 17, is expected to draw thousands to watch writer ...

Charles Karel Bouley: h.wood Group: Crafting the L.A. Nightlife One Club at a Time (Video)

There's a new club in town, and if the opening night is any indication, it's going to be one of the hottest. It's Hooray Henry's at 8713 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles (across from Cedar Sanai Medical Center) and celebs, media, family and friends filled the room August 7th for the club's premiere. Opening a club in Hollywood is almost exactly like opening a movie: there's fanfare, there's publicity, there's a gala and glamour. And the same goes in to the making of the club as a movie: the right ingredients must come together to make something enjoyable so people will come. In Los Angeles there's hundreds of places that want to be the next "place" to be; very few ever succeed. Because like a movie, no matter how much money one throws at it or who is in it or behind it, there's also got to be chemistry, a connection, magic, for lack of a better word. That spirit of Hollywood, the swank, chic Hollywood night spot, watering holes for the glamorous and fabulous, has fueled books, ...

Pablo Ganguli: Open Letter to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We, citizens of the world, are deeply saddened and concerned by the severe violence against citizens of Turkey by the Turkish police over the last couple of days in Turkish cities including Istanbul. We ask the prime minister of Turkey and his government why he allowed for the violence to begin in the first place against peaceful protesters who are simply asking for freedom of speech and for their rights to be heard. We ask the government why it is not following the most important rule of democracy: the right to have freedom of expression? Why did Turkish media not report the violence and devastating attacks by the police? Can the Turkish government truly guarantee that all violent acts against its people will stop immediately? Thousands have been seriously injured, many have lost their eyes, some have lost their lives. As families all over the country are in shock and mourning, what is the next step for the government? Are they finally willing to listen to its people? We ...

Bianca Jagger: Women: The Unsung Heroes of the Environment
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Yesterday I delivered the keynote speech at the exhibition, "Women Pioneers for the Environment and Nature Conservation - 1899 to the Present" in Berlin, Germany, organised by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment to celebrate International Women's Day. The exhibition celebrated twenty one visionary women. I was humbled to be included. These women are from all over the world, from very different disciplines. But they have all made outstanding contributions to the protection of the environment. From Wangari Maathai's pioneering Green Belt Movement, which has helped thousands of communities in Africa and transformed sustainable development, to Jane Goodall's groundbreaking conservation work in Tanzania, to Ursula Sladek's innovative energy entrepreneurship in Germany, to Angela Merkel's leadership as the first woman to head the Federal German Ministry for the Environment, and to become Chancellor of Germany, to Birkel Lemke's campaign in Turkey to prevent gold m ...
