Diana Ross Wore White To A Wedding And It Was Totally Stunning
Huffington Post - 8 months
Stop! In the name of impeccable wedding style. Wearing white to a wedding is typically frowned upon. But we should have figured such rules don’t apply to the one and only Diana Ross. Or that this wedding ― a Saturday affair celebrating her son Ross Naess and wife Kimberly Ryan ― would be anything but typical. A post shared by Tracee Ellis Ross (@traceeellisross) on Jun 12, 2017 at 12:57pm PDT The rustic, outdoorsy affair, which looked plucked from our wildest dreams, involved a hefty number of flower crowns, a larger than life top hat and the bride in a beautifully patterned bohemian-style gown.  It also included Ross, her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross and what appears to be the entire bridal party wearing all white, too. Anyone else having flashbacks to Solange Knowles’ chic all-white wedding photos?

This Initiative Aims To Give Aspiring Female Filmmakers The Chance To Work
Huffington Post - 9 months
Even though the lauded and lucrative “Wonder Woman” just gave us our first female-directed superhero movie, the damning statistics about Hollywood’s gender gap behind the camera are hardly improving. Women made a mere 7 percent of 2016’s highest-grossing movies.  In an effort to help bridge that gap, Glamour magazine has partnered with Girlgaze, a multimedia initiative supporting young female artists, for the #NewView competition. HuffPost is premiering a short montage, featuring Gia Coppola, that outlines the project, which will give winners the chance to helm a short film for one of several brands.  Submissions for #NewView are open until June 30. The competition’s jury includes Coppola, Geena Davis, Rashida Jones, “Fifty Shades of Grey” director Sam Taylor-Johnson, Shonda Rhimes, Tracee Ellis Ross, Zendaya, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway, Chloë Grace Moretz, “Pariah” director Dee Rees and Netflix executive Bela Bajaria. -- This feed and its contents are...

23 Brilliant Lines From Netflix's 'Dear White People'
Huffington Post - 10 months
“Dear White People,” the new Netflix series based on the film of the same name, has become one of the most talked about new shows this year. The series, created by Justin Simien, takes a humorous and unflinching look at racial politics by following the lives of several black students at a fictional and predominantly white Ivy League school.  The show has sparked some interesting conversations about issues like blackface, interracial dating, colorism, and police brutality, to name a few. All of these issues are brought forth through amazingly witty, sharp, and perceptive writing, making for some of the best one-liners on any screen in years. Below, we’ve compiled some of the funniest, most poignant and downright brilliant lines from the show’s first season. Check it out (spoiler alert): 1. SAM: Dear white people, here’s a little tip: When you ask someone who looks ethnically different ‘what are you?’ the answer is usually a person about to slap the s...

It Ain't Just White People: 5 Times Netflix's 'Dear White People' Came For Their Own And Why
Huffington Post - 10 months
  It Ain’t Just Wypipo: Five times the Netflix Series Dear White People Came for Their Own That You Should Look Out For By Pamela Lewis Dear white people, You are not alone. I know many of you are in your bag right now, and all in your feels about Netflix’s decision to actually allow a series with a title addressed directly to you and designed to tackle, head-on, some of the caucasities committed by many of your kinfolk. And I get it, the hit “Dear White People,” according to a popular internet meme, is sort of the equivalent to a bunch of cassette tapes in a shoe box addressed to all of you, only instead of thirteen reasons why, they’ve narrowed it down to just ten episodes. But fear not, because black millennials are clearly equal-opportunity wig snatchers! That’s right, I know the title may not imply it, but trust when I tell you that y’all ain’t the only ones being shaded. Grab your tea. 1. Rashida Jones My first thought? Damn, what Rashida do to y’all? My seco...

DVF Calls Tucker Carlson A 'White Man With A Small Penis'
Huffington Post - 11 months
NEW YORK ― On the last day of Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit, fashion designer and activist Diane von Furstenberg did not hold back when giving her opinion about Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson.  During the event’s “Designing Disruption” panel, which also featured “Black-ish” actress Tracee Ellis Ross and Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, Von Furstenberg responded to the February news clip that featured Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca defending her piece, “Donald Trump is Gaslighting America,” to Carlson.  As Duca defended writing a political op-ed for a magazine with a teenage girl audience, Carlson snapped at the time: “You should stick to thigh-high boots. You’re better at that.” Von Furstenberg’s response?  “It’s only the vengeance of the white man with a small penis.”  Carlson’s tone-deaf comments to Duca must have struck a nerve for von Furstenberg, a certified badass whose parents survived the Holocaust, and who has spent her entire adu...
