‘The Front Runner’ charts implosion of Gary Hart campaign

“The Front Runner” captures what turned out to be pivotal moment in politics and media, zeroing in on the moment when the look-the-other-way mentality about candidates’ personal indiscretions forever changed. At its core, too, is how that shift torpedoed the 1988 presidential run by Gary Hart, played with convincing indignation by Hugh Jackman.

Avon Teams With Rankin for New, Edgier Winter Campaign

ALL MADE UP: Avon is trying to shake up its image by tapping British photographer Rankin to create its latest campaign The Winter Edit, which launches on Friday online and via Avon representatives.
The campaign centers around four key looks: Go Galactic, Divine Dream, Fired Up and Molten Metals, inspired by key makeup trends seen on the autumn 2018 catwalks. From metallic sheens to fiery orange shades and cotton candy tones, these edits are meant to “enable self-expression, inspire confidence and be fun,” said Stephen Rendu, Avon U.K.’s director of beauty.
“I love that Avon has such a massive reach and they’ve been empowering women as ambassadors from the start and making people feel confident, so this just feels like a really great extension of what I do normally,” said Rankin, who has shot a number of beauty campaigns promoting inclusivity and diversity.
The photographer said he brought his “edginess to their aesthetic,” and tried to reinforce the connection the social-selling brand has with its audience. “Even before social media came along, Avon had their women talking to their friends. I was really inspired by Avon’s mission to democratize beauty, because I really believe in beauty and fashion for all.”

24 Sèvres’ New Campaign Plays With Parisian Clichés

JE NE SAIS QUOI: For its new media campaign, 24 Sèvres, the global luxury web site owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, is making fun of the usual stereotypes associated with the Parisienne.
Launching today and photographed by Cecy Young, the campaign features four women posing as counter-examples of Parisian clichés in what the online retailer is touting as a refreshing approach to idealized French style, known for its understated and effortless approach to fashion.
The tone is tongue-in-cheek: French model and actress Audrey Marnay is seen wearing a bright yellow Loewe coat on a visual stating “The Parisienne Only Wears Black,” while Nineties icon Georgina Grenville lifts her arms up in a fuzzy Dries Van Noten fake fur coat on the image headlined “The Parisienne Never Shaves.”
Since opening in 2017 as the online arm of Left Bank department store Le Bon Marché, 24 Sèvres has favored a distinctly Parisian point of view in its selection of brands.
“With this campaign, we wanted to highlight our Parisian roots, but also poke a little fun at them, making sure to address both our local consumers and women worldwide,” said Pauline Dollé-Labbé, marketing director at 24 Sèvres.

Chanel Unveils First Campaign With Penélope Cruz

CRUZ FOR CRUISE: Chanel has unveiled its first advertisements starring Penélope Cruz, who joins the likes of Margot Robbie and Kristen Stewart as the latest star to be lensed for a campaign by Karl Lagerfeld.
The black-and-white images show the Oscar-winning actress dressed in items from the label’s nautical-themed cruise collection, shown in May in front of a 330-foot-long replica ocean liner constructed in the middle of the Grand Palais in Paris.
Cruz brings a sensual warmth to the line’s tweed jackets and striped knits. In one image, she wears a checked tweed beret and a sweater emblazoned with La Pausa, the name of the villa in the South of France built by founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the Thirties, which Lagerfeld used to christen his spectacular boat.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure,” Cruz told WWD in July.

Tumi Sets Date for Annual Retail Campaign

Charity, Anyone?: Tumi’s annual retail promotion that supports All Hands & Hearts is slated to run this year from Sept. 13 to Sept. 23. Shoppers enjoy 20 percent off full-price retail items at Tumi stores and at Tumi.com, with 5 percent of total sales earmarked for donation to the charity.
All Hands & Hearts is a nonprofit organization founded by model Petra Nemcova to help rebuild safe and resilient schools in areas hit by natural disasters.
Last year’s event saw Tumi donate $ 400,000 from the customer-sales campaign to the organization, which used the funds to rebuild The Rhodes School of Performing Arts in Houston. The Rhodes School, damaged last year by Hurricane Harvey, is a tuition-free campus that caters primarily to low-income, minority communities.
In addition to the donation, the travel brand helped All Hands & Hearts gather volunteers to work on reconstruction efforts. Tumi also partners with St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Waves for Water.
Nemcova, part of the relief efforts in Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, said she heard of the school’s plight from local partners.
“Once we saw firsthand the damage and destruction, we knew we had to find a way to help rebuild the school and were fortunate that our

French Montana Writes Op-Ed For #WeAreTheDream Campaign

adidas Creates 747 Warehouse St. in Los Angeles - An Event in Basketball Culture

Source: Neilson Barnard / Getty

In February, French Montana launched the We Are The Dream campaign in response to the impending end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, better known as DACA. On Wednesday (Mar. 7), French published an op-ed co-authored with Get Schooled executive director Marie Groark pushing for the necessity of Dreamers not letting up on their educational goals.

An excerpt of the op-ed from PEOPLE Chica is below:

I am French Montana, a first generation dreamer from Morocco. I immigrated to the Bronx in New York City at the age of 13 only speaking Arabic and French.

I am Marie Groark, an American born educator.

We both want to support teens as they find their path to success in this country. French knows first-hand how tough it can be to learn English and adapt to American culture.

We are not political people. We are an educator and a multi-platinum hip hop artist. But we believe passionately in the worth of every human being. We believe in the power of education to unlock human potential. We work tirelessly to ensure that young people — wherever they may live, wherever they may attend school, whatever education their parents may have — have a voice to advocate for themselves along with access to the tools, resources and community that will help them fulfill their dreams.

It’s pretty dope that French is using his vast platform to bring about necessary change. Learn more about #WeAreTheDream here.

Paul Smith Marks New Direction With Spring Campaign

STARTING AFRESH: Sir Paul Smith is marking the start of a new era at his label with a spring campaign that aims to channel the designer’s trademark irreverence.
Featuring Polish model Malgosia Bela and Ben Allen, the campaign takes its inspiration from the neon signs and the sandy beaches of the South of France. Black-and-white images of the sea provide the backdrop for bright colors and prints, including Hawaiian shirts and a tuna motif inspired by Smith’s many visits to the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo.
“Bright color and confident use of print are two things that lots of people know and love Paul Smith for,” said the designer. “This felt particularly true in my spring 2018 collection, where the ocean-inspired print was so prominent in many of my designs for both men and women. For the campaign it felt right to bring the brightness and optimism to the fore. It feels like we all need a bit of color right now.”
Smith has returned to the creative helm of his newly restructured company and said it was important to launch a campaign that telegraphs the brand’s message.

Ermenegildo Zegna’s Spring Campaign Fronted by Javier Bardem, Dev Patel

ZEGNA’S NEW DEFINING MOMENT: Ermenegildo Zegna has tapped Javier Bardem and Dev Patel for its spring 2018 ad campaign, WWD has learned.
It is understood the campaign will be teased on the Italian men’s wear brand’s official Instagram account through a playful series of stories.
The Spanish actor, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the psychopathic assassin Anton Chigurh in the 2007 movie “No Country for Old Men,” and Patel, known for his breakthrough role as Jamal Malik in “Slumdog Millionaire” and Academy Awards Best Supporting Actor nominee for “Lion,” have never worked together.
The campaign is the third chapter of the Ermenegildo Zegna Defining Moments multichannel project that was first launched a year ago, which paired Robert De Niro with McCaul Lombardi for the spring 2017 season. Photos and videos were directed by Francesco Carrozzini. At the time, artistic director Alessandro Sartori said “the project starts from the values of the brand and looks to the future, speaking to the cluster of friends, clients and ambassadors that have a tie to the brand beyond the product.”
For fall 2017, De Niro was photographed and filmed together with choreographer Benjamin Millepied, the founder of the LA Dance Project and

Dior Homme Taps Patrick Demarchelier for Capsule Ad Campaign

Patrick Demarchelier is behind the new, moody pre-collection campaign for Kris Van Assche’s slinky Dior Homme designs for spring.
The photographer, who’s a frequent Dior collaborator, took cues from the strictly black and white color palette for the spring 2018 Dior Homme collection in his shots of stern, but fine-featured young men in a capsule collection of sharp evening looks.
The noir-heavy photos more than show off the louche tailoring of the collection — black layers of a mock turtleneck, dress shirt, tie and jacket are barely decipherable and most of the photos are half-shrouded in shadow — but Van Assche’s wish to reinterpret formalwear is apparent. He’s even dubbed the collection “Black Carpet.”
“The idea of the Black Carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection in a capsule collection of eveningwear, while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior, reworking the evening suit by pushing it in a more extreme interpretation,” Van Assche said.

Benetton Taps Oliviero Toscani for New Communication Campaign

THE A-TEAM: Benetton is once again teaming with Oliviero Toscani on a communication campaign that is expected to bow on Dec. 1. The Italian fashion company is thus renewing a collaboration with the photographer that made history in the Eighties and Nineties for its controversial photos and campaigns that shines a light on issues such as the death penalty, AIDS, racism and homosexuality. His explicit and transgressive campaigns for United Colors of Benetton included images of a sensual kiss between a priest and a nun or a black horse mounting a white one, for example.
While Luciano Benetton no longer has an operative role within the family-owned company, it is understood he has played a significant part in reigniting the collaboration with Toscani, posting on Facebook a photo of himself and the photographer with the caption, “I think it is the right time to start having fun.” The group has been revamping its operations, cleaning up its network of stores, refurbishing and streamlining it and refocusing its product offer in a bid to further develop the United Colors of Benetton brand.

The surfaces are spray-painted in multi-colored graffiti to “capture the grit of Indian streets,” according to the company.

Kenzo Taps Three Young Filmmakers for Season Zero Campaign

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION: Kenzo’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are known for their experimental approach to campaign films.
This season, for the launch of their Kenzo Season Zero collection, the design duo embarked on an adventure with three young filmmakers – Mati Diop, Baptist Penetticobra and Eduardo Williams – whose work they felt encapsulates the theme of the season: “a singular relationship with the world.” Their brief: “How do we inhabit Earth today in 2017?”
Described in a press release from the house as “mixed, expatriated, nomads,” Williams hails from Argentina, Diop is French and Penetticobra is French but L.A.-based.
Williams’ work, “Tzzd,” follows the dream of an elf who nods off in the metro in Buenos Aires, winding through three countries and two continents and moving from cool to warm colors, with locations ranging from a Buenos Aires fruit and vegetable shop to a dark cave.
Diop’s film, “Olympus,” captures her brother, model Gard Diop, bicycling through Paris in moonlight, and Penetticobra’s “Untitled (Juice),” presented in a vertical format, stars Karmesha Clark playing a modern-day, black Mona Lisa rapping about orange juice.
The films can be viewed on international streaming platform lecinemaclub.com, ending Nov. 9.

Original Penguin Taps Band AJR for Spring 2018 Campaign

Men’s wear brand Original Penguin has tapped New York-based indie band AJR for its spring campaign, to be released in February of next year. Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met were in Los Angeles this week to shoot the campaign as well as the music video for their single “Come Hang Out,” off their new album “The Click,” a version of which will also serve as the video campaign for OP’s spring collection.

“The shoot is some performance and some facial expressions, sort of like acting,” said Jack Met, explaining the concept of the video. “We are at a crazy party, but we are so busy performing that we don’t really notice the party going on around us,” he said.
Adam Met explained that it’s their first time linking with a fashion brand. “Original Penguin has great style, great simplicity and a throwback vibe that mirrors our style as a band. I also like the juxtapositions in the line, like a Seventies print shirt with Nineties pants. It’s sort of our like our music, a post-modern mix.”
The band of brothers, who have been playing together for 12 years, got their start as street performers in

The Outnet Toasts Campaign With Amber Valletta in L.A.

The Outnet’s executive vice president Andres Sosa welcomed Amber Valletta to the family at a dinner at Jean-Georges Beverly Hills on Thursday night. The supermodel appears as the first “face” for the online retailer, part of the Yoox Net-a-porter Group, in its fall digital campaign alongside pal Missy Rayder.
“We’ve never pictured a personality in any of our campaigns before, and we thought Amber was the perfect person to bring it to life,” Sosa said. The small gathering included some of Valletta’s oldest friends, Jaime King, Crystal Lourd, Rosetta Getty, Ross Cassidy, Jennifer Meyer, Shiva Rose and Cameron Silver. Also in the mix were Erica Pelosini, Carlos Lopez, Brigette Romanek, Elsa Dahan and Shea Marie.
Valletta wore a Saint Laurent sequin sheath and smoking jacket, part of The Outnet’s discounted high-fashion offerings. Some guests found it hard to believe that she’s a mother of a 17-year-old son. “It was his birthday yesterday, and we went car shopping,” Valletta said. She agreed to let him get a pickup truck, she said, “because it’s sturdy and safe.”
“Teenagers can be a handful” said Getty, who has two. “I’m trying to negotiate with my daughter right now, because she’s trying to stay out past her curfew.

EXCLUSIVE: Karl Lagerfeld’s Suitcase Among Stars of Rimowa Campaign

PARIS — Rimowa is celebrating the 80th anniversary of its signature aluminum suitcase with a campaign featuring the luggage of personalities ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Martha Stewart, in the first visible sign of its new strategy since being taken over by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
The campaign, set to launch across social media platforms today, was devised at the initiative of Alexandre Arnault — the son of LVMH chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault — who joined the German luggage-maker as joint ceo earlier this year.
The young executive has revamped the Rimowa team, appointing Hector Muelas as chief brand officer in June. Muelas previously worked at Donna Karan International and at Apple, where he led the global brand marketing initiatives for Apple Watch.
The campaign will feature images of the cases set on a white pedestal, shot by German photographer Frank Hülsbömer, alongside quotes from their owners on how travel has “given them character and helped shape their identity,” the brand said. The only exception is Lagerfeld’s case, which the designer shot himself.
“Our suitcases have always been powerful vehicles for storytelling. Aluminum has a lot to do with it because it’s an organic material that evolves together with the traveler. We thought it’d

Stella McCartney Casts Alicia Keys in Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

Stella McCartney chose Alicia Keys as the face of her 2017 Breast Cancer Awareness campaign not just because the two are friends and Keys is a celebrity, but also to target African-American women, who are the fastest-growing group being diagnosed with breast cancer. Statics also show that African-American women diagnosed with breast cancer have a 42 percent higher mortality rate than Caucasian women, which McCartney called “a hard-hitting fact.”
“[The higher mortality rate is mainly because they don’t get an opportunity to get an early diagnosis or the right kind of treatment,” said McCartney. “This really compelled me to reach out to Alicia.  I asked her if she would like to reach out and speak to this community and be the face of the campaign.”

The campaign is meant to raise awareness about the disease and promote regular screenings and early detection. McCartney designed the Ophelia Whistling bra and underwear set in Poppy Pink set for the campaign. This year the campaign will support the Memorial Sloan Kettering Breast Examination Center of Harlem — in Keys’ hometown — which has screened more than 200,000 women for breast cancer and offers free, high-quality care to the local community.

Amanda Wakeley Fetes New Campaign With Phoebe Collings-James

GIRLS UNITED: Women took the lead at Amanda Wakeley’s shindig on Thursday night. The London-based designer kicked off fashion week with a celebration of her latest ad campaign, fronted by Phoebe Collings-James. The artist and feminist follows in the footsteps of a strong cast of women, including ballerina Kate Byrne and Kathryn Parsons, cofounder of Decoded, which pushes digital literacy among women.
“I love models, don’t get me wrong,” said Wakeley about her choice of casting women with other professional backgrounds, “but I’m excited about dressing real women that are doing things and doing them well, when there is so much that is manufactured today. It’s about empowering them, too.”
Wakeley said she was busy expanding her label into a lifestyle brand. Sunglasses, watches and fashion jewelry are expected to hit stores next year, with a line of home fragrances to follow. “That’s where we are going — not just red carpet and special occasions, but weekend and everyday,” she revealed.
Collings-James, meanwhile, was fresh off the opening of her solo exhibit at New York’s 315 Gallery, set to run until Oct. 8. Called “Expensive S–t,” the show explores the “connections between place of birth, place of work and sites of heritage,” featuring

Hailey Baldwin and Stormzy Front Adidas and JD Sports EQT Campaign

SPORTY STRIPES: Hailey Baldwin and rapper Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. — better known as Stormzy — have been tapped by Adidas and JD Sports to star in the fall 2017 EQT campaign. EQT is part of the Adidas Equipment range that was launched in the Nineties for runners.
Baldwin’s campaign was shot by Bella Newman in Los Angeles while Reto Schimd photographed Stormzy in London. Baldwin and Stormzy were both wearing Adidas Originals gear. Baldwin is pictured wearing 3-Stripes high-neck crop top, California T-Shirt, 3-Stripes leggings and the chevron sweatshirt with Adidas Originals EQT Racing ADV sneakers.
Baldwin said she liked EQT’s mix of Nineties style and modern street-led aesthetic. “It brings a throwback element to your look but with a super modern interpretation,” Baldwin said. “I’m all about off-duty style and the EQT is super versatile.”
Meanwhile, Stormzy is pictured wearing a California T-shirt and a zip hoodie with Adidas Originals EQT Support 93/17 trainers. “I grew up wearing Adidas and copping new clothes from JD Sports, so they both hold a lot of meaning for me,” the musician said.
The campaign will run in JD Stores across the U.K., Ireland and Europe and on the JD web site.

The Campaign (Extended Cut)

Jay Roach

Genre: Comedy

Price: $ 4.99

Release Date: August 10, 2012


Get the Extended Cut, with even more mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy featuring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of a cutthroat campaign manager, he soon becomes a contender who gives Cam plenty to worry about. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other in this hilarious comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig even deeper.

L.K. Bennett Salutes British Navy in Fall Ad Campaign

GREENWICH TIME: Brexit remains a touchy subject in Europe, but that hasn’t stopped some big fashion brands from embracing London in their upcoming fall ad campaigns.
L.K. Bennett is the latest label to set the scene in the British capital, following Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors and The Outnet. Its latest campaign was shot by the Spanish photographer Daniel Riera against the backdrop of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, southeast London.
Called “A Modern Portrait,” it was styled by Tank fashion director Caroline Issa with brand director Lorna Perrin.
The models were Valerija Kelava and Manon Leloup. It will launch on August 9 online and across 130 global L.K. Bennett stores in U.K., U.S., Asia and the United Arab Emirates.
“The architecture of Sir Christopher Wren with its geometrically pure lines yet grand and historical gestures is the perfect stage,” said Issa, describing the neoclassical cupolas, columns and architectural symmetry of the college, which once served as a home for disabled sailors, and later as a naval training base.
The collaged-style layout of the campaign reveals a series showing working women at various moments in the day. The company said it wanted to transmit the message of empowerment and “assertive femininity” with the clothing, accessories

News in Brief: Rubio Campaign Deploys 6,000 Ground Troops To Combat ISIS

OTTUMWA, IA—Vowing to hunt down and destroy every last vestige of the extremist group, Senator Marco Rubio announced Tuesday that his presidential campaign was deploying 6,000 ground troops to the Middle East to combat ISIS militants. “ISIS has shown that it has no respect for the sanctity of human life, which is why this campaign has dispatched troops to Syria to begin a full-scale ground assault against these terrorists,” said the candidate ahead of a voter meet-and-greet at an Iowa senior center, noting that the troop deployment was merely the latest phase of a multi-pronged strategy by the Rubio 2016 campaign that began with the arming of Kurdish militias shortly before the second GOP primary debate. “In addition, the campaign has already launched coordinated missile strikes against ISIS strongholds from our destroyer, the USS New American Century, stationed in the Persian Gulf.

CONCORD, NH—Emphasizing the allure and appeal of the 30-foot length of electrical power cable that shared the stage with the former Florida governor, sources confirmed that an orange three-pronged extension cord completely stole the spotlight from Jeb Bush during a New Hampshire campaign rally Friday. “Jeb made some interesting points about the need to prioritize national security, but ultimately he was just completely overshadowed by the far more riveting extension cord running along the floor beside him,” said political pundit Chris Wallace, who acknowledged that attendees appeared more energized by the flexible orange cable taped to the stage and noted that the one-time GOP frontrunner repeatedly failed to connect with the audience as effectively as the cord. “Unfortunately for Jeb, no matter what he did throughout the night, he just looked bland and flat compared to that extension cord.

Neymar Jr Tapped for Replay Ad Campaign, Capsule Collection

Replay has chosen Neymar Jr as the new face of the brand.
The Italian denim company and the soccer star, who plays in the Barcellona F.C. team and is the captain of the Brazilian national team, signed a partnership contract valid through August 2018.
Neymar Jr won’t only appear in Replay’s new ad campaign but he will also design a special collection, to be called “NJR,” for the label. Replay already provides the FC Barcelona team with the official off-field uniforms and shoes.
“When Matteo [Matteo Sinigaglia, Replay chief executive officer] offered me the chance to take part in this project, I immediately agreed to represent a brand which reflects my style,” said Neymar Jr.
“I’m very happy to link our brand to such a talent as Neymar, who is not just an incredible champion, but also a legend, able to enchant crowds with his energy, passion and determination,” Sinigaglia said. “These are the values which have always driven Replay. And it’s this shared vision which made this collaboration possible.”
Replay is controlled by Fashion Box, which operates in 50 countries distributing the Replay, Replay & Sons and We Are Replay collections in 3,000 points of sales in the world, as well as in 200 retail stores.

How One Model Went From Reality TV to Fronting the Fashion Campaign Everyone’s Talking About

hillier bartley

The launch of Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s luxurious new label, Hillier Bartley, brought with it more than a wealth of luxurious sportswear. The design duo’s first campaign—a soft-focus image completely in line with the “rock-’n’-roll femininity” Bartley described to Vogue’s Sarah Mower—has introduced the world to modeling’s rising star Aida Becheanu. As one of the contestants on Romania’s Next Top Model back in 2011, the 20-year-old Becheanu has successfully made the transition from reality television to high fashion—much like TV alums Suvi Koponen and Aamito Lagum before her.

Describing the Top Model experience as somewhat surreal and “completely different” from the actual modeling industry, Becheanu has no plans to reprise her television moment. The time she spends in front of the camera now is with key photographers like David Sims, who shot her for both the Hillier Bartley ads and a slick story for Arena Homme Plus. Sims’s pared-down style suits Becheanu to a tee. “Working with him feels natural,” says Becheanu. “It didn’t even feel like work—he wants you to show your personality instead of simply posing, and I love that.”

Besides getting to shoot with Sims, appearing in the Hillier Bartley ads came with additional perks, namely a first look at the collection, including its covetable velvet-patched sweaters and exotic accessories. With its focus on quality and subtlety, the line’s pieces meshed well with Becheanu’s understated tastes. “The clothes are totally my style, and the quality was really beautiful,” says Becheanu. “Luella [Bartley] and David [Sims] were both so wonderful on set, so it was just a pleasure to have such a great time during my very first campaign.” Now Becheanu has her sights set on New York. “I’m concentrated on my work at the moment—I’m excited for my first season here in New York. I just arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait.”

Donald Trump Discusses Ties With David Herzka at Campaign Event

ONLY IN AMERICA: Opportunistic designer David Herzka really tied one on with Donald Trump Sunday morning, but not in the colloquial sense. During a rise-and-shine breakfast at the Long Branch, N.J., home of his daughter Ivanka’s in-laws Seryl and Charles Kushner, Trump mingled with 100 or so of their inner circle. “It was pretty low-key. But he’s very serious and believes in what he’s doing,” Herzka said. “Everyone felt he’s really a potential contender.”
The Kushners’ enterprising son, Jared, made the rounds with Ivanka, but another power couple — his venture capitalist-skilled brother Joshua and Karlie Kloss — were not on the scene. Trump’s son-in-law no doubt has his reserve of potential campaign supporters as owner of Kushner Properties and the New York Observer.
Herzka, who started his direct-to-consumer online neckwear line David Fin earlier this year, showed his own moxie by having a word with The Donald and giving him a tie in what he thought would be the candidate’s favorite colors — red, white and blue. Herzka told Trump about the Battery Park-based start-up that makes all of its ties in the U.S. and donates $ 5 of each $ 85 sale to Hiring Our Heroes, a nonprofit that helps veterans find

Despicable Fat-Shaming Campaign Aims To Reveal People’s ‘#ThinnerBeauty’

“No shaming please. No hate speech please.”

That’s what was written in the About section in a new “skinny acceptance” campaign called Project Harpoon before it was taken down from Facebook. The “campaign” photoshops images of plus-size women to make them look skinnier.

And yes, it’s wildly problematic. 

The creators of Project Harpoon describe the project on Instagram as a “movement” that asks people to support “being in shape and not feeding into obesity.” The images include plus-size celebrities, models and everyday people.

It’s fat-shaming at its ugliest. 

Under the misguided mission that the project is showing everyone’s “#ThinnerBeauty,” Project Harpoon’s now-defunct Facebook page described the campaign as being “dedicated to showing both sides of modern day beauty.”

“In current societal fashion, a recent trending surge of ‘pro-obesity’ and ‘fat acceptance’ have paved the way for many people to renounce exercise and personal healthcare in general,” the page’s description read. “The page aims to only show that being skinny is okay as well! Skinny shaming is not okay.”  

(Quick reminder: No one is shaming skinny people by highlighting fat or plus-size bodies. We highlight fat and plus-size bodies because they’re rarely represented in pop-culture and are stigmatized in real life.) 

Before the campaign’s account was removed from Instagram, the photoshopped posts included horrible captions beneath each image.

“From runaway freight train to fashion week NYC runway model, she’s got some potential,” one caption read beneath an image of a plus-size woman on a runway next to the same image photoshopped to make the woman look much slimmer. 

Another Instagram post featured a photoshopped image of a plus-size woman wearing a feminist t-shirt, with the caption: “If you’re a feminist, you should at least be in shape so you can attend the protests, not get stuck in the parking garage!”

The campaign was originally discovered on Facebook on Aug. 19, but it looks like both Facebook and Instagram have removed the project’s page. Before being removed from the two platforms, Project Harpoon had over 2,500 Instagram followers and had gained momentum on Facebook after Facebook Newswire posted it on their page.  

Instagram confirmed to The Huffington Post UK that Project Harpoon’s account was disabled for violating their bullying policy. 

After being kicked off the other two social media platforms, Project Harpoon moved to Twitter and Reddit to photoshop images of women (and a few men) without their permission

The images include celebrities such as Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson, Meghan Trainor and plus-size models Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham.  

Many people have criticized the project as peak fat-shaming and blatantly offensive. Among those horrified by the project is plus-size model and outspoken body love activist Tess Holliday who’s own images were wrongfully photoshopped.  

“It’s abominable that this [Facebook page] is using my image without permission to promote themselves,” Holliday told E! News. “This kind of hit piece is exactly why I started #EffYourBeautyStandards. I am asking my followers to boycott this [page] and any others like it. Loving yourself is the most powerful message we all need to stand behind.”

We couldn’t agree more.

IOWA CITY, IA—Just minutes before taking the stage for a town hall event Friday, Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham reportedly chastised himself upon realizing he had left the CD-R containing his campaign song in his room at the Red Roof Inn. “Darn it, I even put it on the bedside table so I wouldn’t miss it when I was getting dressed to leave,” said Graham, who was hopeful that housekeeping would place the CD-R in the lost and found since he had written “Lindsey’s Campaign Song” on the disc with a black felt-tip marker. “There’s no time to head back now. Shoot, I can picture it sitting there, right next to the little cardboard envelope with the second keycard in it. Now I’ll have to get my sister to burn another CD for me.” At press time, Graham reportedly walked out onto the stage to …

News in Brief: Relieved Scott Walker Narrowly Avoids Acknowledging Immigrants’ Humanity During Campaign Speech

SUNAPEE, NH—Taking a deep breath and slowly regaining his composure as he reflected on the disaster he had narrowly averted, Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker appeared visibly relieved after managing to stop himself just short of acknowledging immigrants’ humanity while speaking at a campaign event Friday, sources confirmed. “Oh, man, I almost referred to them as ‘people’—I’ve got to be more careful next time,” said Walker, who was able to successfully redirect his line of thought toward ending birthright citizenship after catching himself on the verge of expressing genuine sympathy for the struggles faced by illegal immigrants in the U.S. “I was this close to saying I understood the difficult choices they have to make and recognizing that many of them come here hoping for a better life—hell, I nearly identified with them as parents! Thankfully, I stopped just in time and went straight into …

10 Reasons Why Having Your Campaign Poster Photo-Shopped Is A Good Thing

It’s election time in Canada and the Liberal Party of Canada has a new look for their campaign posters. They’ve been getting a lot of attention, particularly this modification of the candidate for Quebec’s LaSalle-Émard-Verdun riding’s poster, David Lametti.

2015-08-19-1439996483-8493487-LamettiGowron.PNG

Yup, that’s the Klingon leader Gowron, the son of M’Rel and the leader of the Klingon Empire. Quite the comparison!

Lametti’s been having fun with the attention this has been getting (the man who first created the poster even has a twitter handle: @liberalgowron), and so I thought I’d ask him, in the vein of David Letterman, to give us his Top 10 Reasons Why Having Your Campaign Poster Photo-Shopped is a Good thing. Here are his answers:

10. The photo-shopped posters create dialogue. People are talking about our posters, and the Liberals invite debate, discussion and dialogue.

9. People are more creative with our posters than with the other parties. Our posters are not bland, they stand out. With that we get people who will either love them or hate them, and people are at least being creative and interactive with the liberal posters, instead of just ignoring them like the NDP or Conservative ones.

8. The humour decreases the intensity of the poster. Some people have commented that the posters look too intense. I don’t agree with that, but having some fun with them certainly balances that out.

7. Having more and better hair than I’ve had before.

6. Free publicity. Thanks @liberalgowron

5. It shows that the Liberal team has a sense of humour. We take this in stride and laugh about it.

4. Ups Canada’s potential for a strategic alliance with the Romulans.

3. My former students would say I’m a tough marker but at least I’m not a Klingon.

2. Comic con’s been calling.

1. I’d still vote for a Klingon over Prime Minister Harper.

Maybe he’ll live long and prosper.

H&M-owned & Other Stories Is Latest to Launch Transgender Campaign

Fashion has embraced the transgender community most visibly through models and ad campaigns. Two-year-old & Other Stories, the H&M-owned label that prides itself on female diversity, is the latest brand to cast transgender models in a campaign. Lest the company be part of the crowd, it took the angle an extra step by recruiting a creative team of transgender professionals to produce a shoot for an athletic-inspired capsule collection launching in-store on Aug. 20. Photographer Amos Mac shot models Valentijn De Hingh and Hari Nef in & Other Stories’ Stockholm atelier. Love Bailey styled the shoot, working with makeup artist Nina Poon. Swedish director Ninja Thyberg, who is not transgender, captured the behind-the-scenes action for a film, “The Gaze & Other Stories.”
“There’s a lot of talk about transgender today, but for us, it was a lateral step to do [the campaign],” said Sara Hildén Bengtsson, & Other Stories creative director. Her concept was to focus on the transgender “gaze,” which is an idea to articulate and to interpret from the images. Essentially, the finished product is the result of a collaboration of all transgender individuals who are fashion professionals. It doesn’t look that different from what a nontransgender shoot might yield.

News in Brief: Huckabee Campaign Suspended After Candidate Trapped In Briar Patch

HOPE, AR—Saying all public appearances would be canceled until they could find a way to free the former Arkansas governor, officials announced Friday that Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign had been suspended due to the Republican candidate becoming trapped in a briar patch. “Aw shucks, we hate having to put everything on hold like this, but darned if Mike ain’t done got hisself stuck in a dang briar patch like a possum in a drainpipe,” said senior advisor Chip Saltsman, adding that the GOP hopeful had been “kickin’ up a ruckus” and “hootin’ and a-hollerin’ something fierce” since becoming entangled in the thicket earlier in the day. “I told him not to go chasin’ after varmints in the yard or he was liable to end up in the prickly bush, but that’s ol’ Mike for ya.

Natalia Vodianova Sounds Off on Her New Fashion Campaign

theory natalia vodianova campaign

As the foremost Russian model, Natalia Vodianova has done it all: high glam at Louis Vuitton, gorgeous girl-next-door at Stella McCartney, ultra-femme for Calvin Klein Euphoria. Her latest campaign is for Theory, which is undergoing a fairly significant rebranding since Olivier Theyskenss departure in June 2014. First up was bringing back then promoting womenswear designer Lisa Kulson, who designed the label’s first pair of stretch trousers in the nineties. Then came a new brand image, which is where Vodianova factors in. “I wanted our people inside the company and people outside the company to look at Theory with a fresh mind,” Theory CEO Andrew Rosen said earlier this year. “I didn’t want to hold on inside the company to a lot of legacy things that I think were about a time and a place when business was different.” Fall is the model’s second season in front of the camera for the label, making her one of the driving forces establishing Theory’s new look. “It is true that I usually have long-lasting relationships [with brands], and this time it felt like it could be a perfect match,” Vodianova wrote over email.

Her reasoning might stem from the fact that the Theory lifestyle is very much in line with her own. A mother to four who keeps her international modeling career going strong, she’s the kind of effortlessly chic woman on-the-go Theory aims to appeal to. In the David Sims–lensed campaign, Vodianova sports the brand’s easygoing slacks, loose blazers, and several marled knits she calls “real keepers”—looks not too far off from her real-world uniform. Could Theory’s oversize gray turtleneck make the woman who wears it appear as elegantly unstudied as Vodianova? It’s available for preorder on the brand’s site; toss it on and see for yourself.

The Transgender Gaze in the New & Other Stories Campaign

& other stories transgender campaign

Long before Caitlyn Jenner appeared on that groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover, transgender models were consistently spotted in fashion spreads, on runways, and in campaigns. Riccardo Tisci frequently featured assistant turned muse Lea T in his ads; Australian model Andreja Pejic walked on dozens of runways, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Thom Browne, and Marc Jacobs; and last year, Barneys cast seventeen trans models for a spring campaign shot by Bruce Weber. Now & Other Stories is taking the love affair between fashion and transgender culture a step further.

Not only did the H&M Group-owned label cast rising transgender models like Hari Nef and Valentijn De Hingh to star in its latest ad campaign, but the creative team behind the shoot was also made up entirely of trans people, including stylist Love Bailey, makeup artist Nina Poon, and photographer Amos Mac. “I think that the way things are moving right now, it’s looking like even when the fad is over there will still be awareness of our story and our issues,” De Hingh told WWD about the current state of transgender issues. With Pejic already signed on as the next face of Make Up For Ever, and rumors of beauty companies courting Jenner, it seems this is one fashion fad that has staying power.

& Other Stories Features Transgender Models In Latest Campaign

H&M’s rad sister store & Other Stories just got even more rad.

On Friday the fashion-forward retailer launched its latest ad campaign for an athleisure capsule collection, and the ads feature two transgender models, Valentijn De Hingh and Hari Nefstylist. The shoot was also brought to life by a creative team made up of photographer Amos Mac, stylist Love Bailey and makeup artist Nina Poon, who all identify as transgender.

 

In a press release from the brand, & Other Stories’ creative director Sara Hildén Bengtson talked about the decision to hire models and creatives who identify as transgender.

“The fashion world is embracing transgender models and we think that’s great. But we couldn’t help to ask ourselves how the traditional fashion gaze can change if we keep the same normative crew behind the camera. So we invited five amazing creatives, all transgender, to make our latest story,” she said.

& Other Stories joins the likes of Barneys New York and Make Up For Ever in featuring transgender models in its ads. Hiring behind-the-scenes talent who are transgender is yet another exciting decision for an industry that’s much criticized for lacking diversity.

Check out more images from the campaign below, which launches in & Other Stories locations and online August 20.

Ranbeeri Denim Taps Aliana Lohan for Launch Campaign

KID SISTER: Ranbeeri Denim, a new line from the New York-based Central Denim design firm — which also houses the junior brand Rebel by Right and O.G. Jeans for men — has tapped Aliana “Ali” Lohan, the younger sister of Lindsay, as the star of its first campaign. The collection, designed by creative director Dorothy Antoine and set to debut this fall, focuses on denim jumpsuits, flares and skinny styles for the young contemporary market, priced from $ 49 to $ 79.
“Bryce [Thompson] shoots very quickly and knows what he wants,” Lohan told WWD. “We were dancing and laughing the entire shoot….I love photographers like that and felt right at home.”
Lohan will cohost a party this Tuesday night on the roof deck of Jimmy at the James hotel to celebrate the new line. Outside of modeling, the 21-year-old revealed another project she’s been working on: her music career. “I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘work’ because I feel it’s what I’m here to do,” she said. “I’m creating new music and am very grateful to be fulfilling my dream. I’m so excited for the whole world to hear it and I feel many people will be able to relate.”

News in Brief: Anti-MDMA Campaign Warns Teens About Dangers Of Feeling More Connected To Others

ROCKVILLE, MD—Explaining that most young people mistakenly believe the popular drug to be safe for recreational use, officials from the National Institute on Drug Abuse unveiled a new anti-MDMA campaign Friday warning teens about the dangers of feeling deep emotional connections to others. “Too many of our nation’s children don’t realize that even a single dose of MDMA—or Molly, as it’s known—has the devastating potential to make users feel like they’re part of one big human family, connected to all those around them by a single cosmic thread,” said NIDA spokesperson June Kessler, who noted that 13- to 18-year-olds were especially at risk of succumbing to a profound warmth and admiration toward their peers that knows no bounds. “Teens need to know this isn’t just a benign party drug; it comes with serious consequences, and it can and will cause users to …

Under Armour’s New Campaign Is All About The Power Of Female Athleticism

In the company’s latest campaign, Under Armour is all about highlighting the accomplishments of incredible athletes.

The fitness brand is promoting its Armour High Bra, which is built for high impact activities — running, kickboxing etc — with gorgeous posters of ballerina Misty Copeland, Apline ski racer Lindsey Vonn, soccer player Kelley O’Hara and surfer Brianna Cope, among others. 

“Woven into the Armour Bra product launch is a deeper goal of connecting with women at all levels of sport and all stages of their lives, and changing the way they think and talk about sports bras,” Adrienne Lofton, the SVP of of brand marketing for Under Armour said in a press release.

This summer has been an important one for athletes who are women. Earlier this month, New York’s parade to celebrate the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s World Cup win was the first ticker tape parade for female professional athletes in 30 years. And Serena Williams’ win at Wimbledon elicited awe from the likes of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling (including this epic shutdown of a Williams critic).

But just in case you still needed a reminder about the power of women’s athleticism, take a look at some of the photos from the campaign below:

This Body-Positive Campaign Is Empowering Women To #DropTheTowel

 

A new campaign is reminding women to show off their beautiful beach bodies and #DropTheTowel. 

Created by Wear Your Voice Magazine, the #DropTheTowel campaign features women of all shapes, sizes and colors to remind women that every body is beautiful and should never be hidden. 

“This is a movement for all shapes, sizes, colors, disabilities and genders to proudly proclaim that they are done hiding their already beautiful summer body — and are ready to lose that cover-up and drop the towel,” Monica Cadena, senior editor for Wear Your Voice magazine, told The Huffington Post. 

The campaign features images of ten women quite literally throwing their towels in the air to reveal their beautiful bikini bodies underneath. 

Founder and Editor-in-chief of Wear Your Voice, Ravneet Vohra told The Huffington Post that the campaign is trying to inspire freedom of body expression by ”shaking up the classic definition of what we have been lead to believe is the perfect beach-ready bikini-clad body.” By depicting more realistic body types than those seen in magazines, advertisements and pop-culture, Vohra hopes the campaign will “inspire and evoke a deeper thought about what a perfect body is.”

“I think we as a society have to ask ourselves this — What exactly is a ‘bikini body’ and what are we doing to perpetuate the crisis we face around the false imagery we and our younger generation are subjected to,” Vohra said. ”Is there room for change and growth as a society? Yes there is!”

The images show each woman comfortable in her own skin and happily stripping off her beach towel. The campaign is just further proof that to have a beautiful bikini body all you need is a bikini and a body

Take a look at the gorgeous bikini bodies below:

Lanvin Heads to Sheraton Park Lane for Ad Campaign

RICH LIFE: Told Queen Elizabeth II had her first dance in the ballroom of the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London, Alber Elbaz was smitten with that glamorous tale, and made the Art Deco room the location for Lanvin’s fall ad campaign.
“I love places that are not yet renovated,” he said. “This time, I wanted to have a story. As we are now in an image epoch.”
Elbaz also carried over the family theme from previous campaigns, casting two sets of twin models — Baylee and Kelsey Soles and Erik and Niek Put — along with sister act Reba and Jess Maybury.
Mirrors, face-concealing hats and densely patterned carpets add to the drama to Elbaz’s Moroccan tinged fall collection. Slated to break in a range of September magazines, the ads were shot by Tim Walker with creative direction by Ronnie Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme of House + Holme.
The French house is also planning newsstand placements in Paris and New York and light boxes in China and Hong Kong.
The print campaign for men breaks in the July issue of L’Uomo Vogue. A video is to follow in September.

INTRIGUING INSTAGRAMS: David Beckham and Kevin Hart have recently posted curious images on Instagram. Beckham posted two images where he and Hart are donning identical outfits. The duo, decked out in red-and-black checkered shirts, took a selfie in which Beckham captioned: ‘I can’t seem to shake this guy off! #lovethisman #twins.” Beckham then posted another photo of the duo working out in a gym and sporting matching red shirts and sweatpants: “Work out buddies….Curious???”

Fisher-Price And Proud Parenting’s New Campaign Aims To Increase Visibility Of LGBT Parents

Fisher-Price is hoping to increase the visibility of same-sex parents with a new, all-inclusive photo campaign.

The toy company has teamed up with Proud Parenting, an online community forum for LGBT parents, for the launch of the Proud Parenting LGBT Family Photo Gallery. The project is a curated photo collection of LGBT parents and their families that will be featured across digital media outlets and promoted by Gay Ad Network on a number of websites and mobile apps. You can check out the photo gallery on the web, as well as on Facebook and Instagram.

Proud Parenting Editor-in-Chief Jeff Bennett says he hopes the campaign will help “lead the way for a new generation of families.” A press release pointed to an estimated three million LGBT Americans who are parents, and six million Americans who have a parent who identifies as LGBT.

“Fisher-Price is proud to help all parents give their children the best possible start in life,” Hailey Sullivan, Fisher-Price’s Director of Marketing, said in a press release. Meanwhile, the effort also earned praise from Gabriel Blau of the Family Equality Council, who applauded Fisher-Price for “sharing our family stories with the nation.”

Fisher-Price is owned by Mattel, whose iconic lineup of brands also includes Barbie, Hot Wheels and American Girl, among others.

Make Up For Ever has released images of its newest campaign stars: model Andreja Pejić and actress and blogger Jamie Chung. Celebrity makeup artist Melanie Iglesias will also be the brand’s pro consulting artist. At a press event announcing the news, Pejić told the assembled beauty editors, “When I was little, I would dream about what it would be like to grow up and be a woman. I didn’t care if I was scrubbing toilets — if I was doing it as a woman, I’d be happy. I’m thankful to Make Up For Ever for taking this bold step.” According to WWD, Pejić is the first transgender model to front a big makeup campaign, symbolically opening the door for Caitlyn Jenner and others, too.

The Gucci Fall 2015 Campaign Is Alessandro Michele’s First. Here’s An Exclusive First Look.

Only six months ago, Alessandro Michele was promoted from head accessories designer at Gucci to his new post as the label’s creative director. In short, it was huge news.

The lofty position obviously drew a white-hot spotlight to his first major collection, Fall 2015. Michele quickly impressed critics with his ’70s-inspired, relaxed luxury designs — and fashion insiders and fans alike have been waiting for the collection’s campaign.

Well, the wait is over. We’re thrilled to offer an exclusive first look at Gucci’s Fall 2015 campaign.

“I wanted to bring my creative vision to life through this advertising campaign, the first one featuring my collections,” Michele told The Huffington Post. “I decided to go back to the streets, as with the Cruise collection I just showed in New York. I believe there is a fluid and organic contamination that exists between the catwalk and the street. Fashion, especially ready-to-wear, is something real, made for everyday and for everyone to express their own creativity and individuality.”

Floral printed logo handbags, ruffled frocks and fur-lined loafers certainly speak to that mission. The campaign was photographed by Glen Luchford, who captured models Tessa Charlotte Bruinsma, Tobias Lundh, Lia Pavlova, and Sven de Vries dressed in the eye-catching designs in an urban backdrop — a place of “unexpected events, rifts, remnants and amnesias” and a place for “mingling of reality and desire,” Michele said in a press release.

News in Brief: New Montana Tourism Campaign Marketed Toward Urban Bison

HELENA, MT—Promising unspoiled nature and a relaxing escape from the hectic rigors of city life, a new Montana tourism advertising campaign that debuted this week is reportedly marketed toward urban bison. “We want Montana to be the only destination a bison thinks of when they need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city,” Montana Office of Tourism head Brian Kinnard said of the $ 5 million campaign, which consists of billboards and advertisements placed in subways and bus stops in Chicago, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. in order to reach city-dwelling bison. “Montana offers expansive views, fresh local food, and gorgeous national parks where bison can reconnect with nature and spend quality time with family or friends.” Kinnard told reporters that most bison visiting Montana would probably never want to go back to the city after getting out into the open and realizing they …

Boss Fall 2015 Campaign

A BOSS DUO: For his third campaign for Boss, artistic director Jason Wu cast Clément Chabernaud and Edie Campbell. Campbell, has been featured in past campaigns for the house, and Wu liked the contrast between the two models. “There’s an edge about the two of them, which is something that we did not explore as much in the first two campaigns,” said Wu. “It’s an interesting evolution. Clément has a very masculine look but also possesses a refinement that is extremely modern, while, for me, Edie is the face of this generation. They both bring that refreshing sense of now.” Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, with movement direction by Stephen Galloway, the campaign seeks to capture a “Berlin attitude” with the set constructed from layers of anthracite felt.

Help Improve Nail Salon Conditions By Participating In The #HandleWithCare Campaign

Ever since Sarah Maslin Nir’s piece in The New York Times exposed unsafe working conditions, abuse of workers and low wages in the nail salon industry, we’ve all been left wondering what we can do to help.

One person who’s stepped up to the plate is Pippa Lord, founder of Handle With Care. The website and corresponding hashtag has gained traction from nail artists, customers and even government officials (Governor Cuomo is a follower), who have all taken to social media to show support. Their goal is to help improve conditions not only in nail salons, but in the beauty industry as a whole.

handle with care

“I really hope that women will start thinking more about the social impact of the service industry in general,” Lord told The Huffington Post in an email, adding, “It upsets me that we let this slip and it took an article like this to bring it to light. But not every service industry will get an article like this, so what about them? What about those other cheap beauty treatments?”

Emergency measures have been taken by Cuomo to protect nail salon workers, and just this week hundreds of volunteers handed out fliers on the streets of New York informing both workers and customers of their rights.

But taking matters into your own hands has (literally) never been easier. Instagram users are encouraged to snap a photo of their nails using the hashtag #HandleWithCare to show support.

If nothing else, Lord’s efforts have opened up the conversation on a larger scale. “It’s been incredible, especially from members of the nail industry, many of whom said they’d been wanting to say something about it for so long and looking for a way to show their support,” she said.

Head to Handle With Care’s website to learn more, and if you see poor working conditions or any other violations, call the New York State Department of Labor at 1-888-469-7329.

Female African musicians unite in ‘Poverty is Sexist’ campaign

By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Leading African female musicians have recorded a video of songs and instrumental music, joining a “Poverty is Sexist” campaign to put women and girls at the center of the global drive to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. Investing in women and closing the gender gap could reduce hunger, cut maternal and child deaths and boost economies in the world’s poorest countries, according to the ONE Campaign, co-founded by Irish rocker Bono to end extreme poverty and disease. The video, released on Wednesday, features seven musicians from seven African countries, including Kenya’s Victoria Kimani, South Africa’s Judith Sephuma and Mozambique’s Gambela, alongside Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. “But when we invest in women and girls, we increase and accelerate the chances of overcoming extreme poverty.” The ONE campaign has also invited people including teenage activist Malala Yousafzai, to take a “#Strengthie”, a selfie in the pose of Rosie the Riveter, face of the famous “We can do it” poster, and post it online in support of girls and women.

‘Who Will You Be?’ Campaign Celebrates The Raw Strength Of Women’s Bodies

“Who will you be at this unholy hour? When no one is watching and the smallest decisions mean the most. Who will you be then?”

So begins a new series of ads from Dick’s Sporting Goods as part of their campaign “Who Will You Be?” The 60-second spot features ordinary women pushing through the hardest parts of working out, whether it’s that last rep or the early morning wake-up.

Launched in March 2015, the larger “Who Will You Be?” campaign explores the decisions athletes make on a daily basis when it comes to being successful both on and off the field. This type of everyday decision-making is familiar to anyone trying to stay active, particularly women.

Eight 15-second vignettes of individual women are included in longer spot above, all highlighting the challenges and rewards of balancing life and fitness.

Who will you be when there’s nothing left?

Who will you be when fatigue hits on mile 19?

Who will you be at this unholy hour?

Who will you be when naptime is your only time?

“This campaign recognizes the fact that women juggle a lot every day, so making the choice to work out is a challenging choice for people,” a rep for Dick’s Sporting Goods told The Huffington Post. “This campaign celebrates those decisions, and celebrates people for making them.”

Bernie Sanders, Meet Kaiser Chiefs And The Perfect Campaign Song!

2015-05-08-1431052372-8241486-KaiserChiefs.jpg

Okay, Senator Bernie Sanders is running for President. So first things first: what’s gonna be his campaign song? Some folk had a little fun over the fact that Sanders actually recorded a folk album of sorts back in 1987. (He sort of talk-sings his way through classics like “This Land Is Your Land” and “Where Have All The Flowers Gone.”) Not me; I think it’s cool.

But a campaign needs a theme song that captures the mood of America, the pulse of the population. Reagan had “God Bless The USA” by Lee Greenwood. Bill Clinton had “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac. Bernie Sanders, meet “The Factory Gates” by Kaiser Chiefs.

Bernie, if you’ve never seen them live, Kaiser Chiefs are on a tour of the US right now. They’re hitting Atlanta on May 8, North Carolina on May 9, Richmond Virginia on the 10th, Baltimore on the 12th and Irving Plaza in New York City on May 13th. Trust me, they’re your kind of group and put on a great show.

This band from Leeds has been one of the best rock bands of the past decade, though they”re far better known in the UK where Kaiser Chiefs came up alongside Arctic Monkeys the way Blur and Oasis did in the 1990s. No matter. Kaiser Chiefs are smart, ferociously good live and politically committed. Think The Clash.

They don’t gently strum acoustic guitars like Pete Seeger and they don’t sound like scolds a la Midnight Oil. They’re funny, brash and deliver songs that are catchy as hell, songs ranging from their #1 UK single “Ruby” to “Every Day I Love You Less and Less” to their latest “Falling Awake.” Here’s “Coming Home,” a song of their most recent album, the hilariously titled but bracing Education, Education, Education & War. It was one of the best of 2014. (Some would say THE best.)

As you can hear, Bernie, Kaiser Chiefs have got a great sound and deal with love and sex and family and every day life. But a committed, intelligent take on the wider world is never far from their minds. Their breakout first album was called Employment (with the ferocious single “I Predict A Riot”); followed by Yours Truly, Angry Mob; then Off With Their Heads; then The Future Is Medieval and now Education, Education, Education & War. Sense a trend? You don’t need to analyze their lyrics to realize this band is dedicated to social justice.

You gotta love a group that live tweets all night looking at the results of the UK election and bemoaning the slim Conservative victory. (My favorite thread was a retweet their drummer VJ did of this comment: “Staying up for this would be like staying up for Santa, except Santa has stolen all your toys and given them to his rich mates.”)

The album is strong from start to finish but its the opening track that would make the perfect campaign song for you, Bernie. The lyrics of “The Factory Gates” show a knowledge of labor history thanks to references to company stores and the like. They nail the New Gilded Age with lines like “What you thought was way too much is not enough.” And they capture the frustrated feeling that no matter how hard you work, the deck is stacked against most people.

“They tell you day after day
To make your way through the Factory Gates
What you make on the factory floor
You take straight to the company store.”

Pretty great, right, Bernie? It’s a “man the barricades,” barn burner of a tune and I can just see you mounting the stage right after this song has roused your ever-growing audiences into a call for action. At the very least, check them out so you can enjoy a few hours where someone else has to do the song and dance.

Like the best rock and roll, Kaiser Chiefs tap into frustrations and hopes and fears, letting people vent and cheer and sing along and realize whatever doubts or dreams they have, they’re not alone. Things can change if we work together like a rock and roll band or a community or — who knows — like a country.

Note: Michael Giltz is provided with free albums to listen to and tickets to concerts in the hope of coverage, though he receives far more music and attends far more shows than he could ever review.

Drea de Matteo Joins Cruelty Free International Campaign to end Cosmetics Testing on Animals

If you are anything like me, you were a fan of The Sopranos and you probably remember the scene leading up to the demise of Adriana La Cerva, excellently played by Drea de Matteo, as one of the most nail-biting, heart-wrenching of the series.

Again, if you’re at all like me, you were drawn in to the FX drama Sons of Anarchy, and found yourself rooting for Wendy Case who, in the end, became one of the most redeeming characters on the show. This character was also flawlessly portrayed by de Matteo.

If either of the above is true for you then you’ll understand why I am thrilled that Drea is the latest celebrity to lend her support to the Cruelty Free International campaign to end cosmetics testing on animals in the United States.

“Animals shouldn’t suffer for the sake of beauty. I’m proud to join Cruelty Free International in calling on the United States to end cosmetics testing on animals.” Drea de Matteo

2015-04-24-1429846638-198117-Drea_de_MatteoLeslie_Hassler_3322.jpg

The Cruelty Free International photo shoot became an activity for the whole family including her daughter Alabama, son Blackjack, and rescue pup Blankie.

Shopping cruelty free is also often a family affair, with conscientious shoppers actively looking for products that are not tested on animals for themselves as well as for their kids and companion animals.

Thankfully it’s not hard to shop cruelty free for everyone as many Leaping Bunny certified companies offer products for the whole family. For example, for furry friends, there is John Paul Pet, by luxury beauty brand Paul Mitchell and Halo, Purely for Pets® owned in part by award-winning talk show host Ellen Degeneres which offers a range of grooming supplies. Kiss My Face and Badger Balm are among the many companies that offer a range of cruelty free products from bubble bath to sunscreen specially formulated for kids and babies.

For cosmetic companies forgoing animal testing, it is not only the right thing to do for animals but it’s also a smart business move. A March 2015 Nielsen survey found that “not tested on animals” was the most important packaging claim among those surveyed.

“When it comes to claims in the beauty aisle, consumers appear most invested in animal welfare, as “not tested on animals” was the most important packaging claim among those surveyed” – James Russo, SVP, Global Consumer Insights for Nielsen.

One of the things I found most interesting about this survey was the span of generations it included. Of those surveyed, 37% were Millennials (age 19-34), 29% were from Generation X, 24% were Baby Boomers, 5% were from the Greatest Generation (age 69+) and 5% were from Generation Z (age 18 or younger).

That’s right, Generation Z is officially a consumer demographic and, according to a recent Forbes article, they are a force to be reckoned with. Clearly the demand for cruelty free products isn’t going away.

With high consumer demand for cruelty free products across multiple generations and fantastic celebrity supporters like Drea de Matteo helping to keep the awareness high, we are getting closer to a day when animal testing for cosmetics in the US will be a thing of the past.

If you’re like me, you think that day can’t come soon enough.

Gina Rodriguez Lands Kipling Campaign, Marking Her First Major Sponsorship Deal

The moment actress Gina Rodriguez won a Golden Globe, we knew it was only a matter of time before the fashion industry would come knocking.

That moment is here. The “Jane the Virgin” star, who was born in Chicago to Puerto Rican parents, has been tapped as a Kipling brand ambassador and the face of the bag company’s summer 2015 ads.

gina rodriguez kipling

“To me, Kipling has always embodied the perfect blend of comfort and femininity,” Rodriguez said in a press release. “When I was a teen, I saw my first Kipling bag with the cute monkey and wanted one so bad but couldn’t afford it. I saved my allowances and eventually bought my first one all by myself. I kept that bag for over 10 years. Now I get to be a part of this beautiful movement. I love the way life works itself out -– it’s full circle.”

Kipling, which was founded in 1987, is also tasking the 30-year-old beauty with spreading happiness through its Make Happy movement, which is aimed at reminding people that happy moments can happen anywhere, anytime. For her involvement in the project, Rodriguez will visit a university campus in California this spring and present a special surprise.

“What makes me happy is my family being healthy,” Rodriguez told Eonline. “What makes me happy is seeing young girls inspired to fulfill any dream they possibly have. What makes me happy is to see others happy.”

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video from Rodriguez’s campaign shoot and a look at the Summer 2015 Kipling collection. Do you love it?

Rep. Steve Scalise Dropped Thousands In Campaign Cash On Vineyard Vines Swag

WASHINGTON — Nothing says party unity like matching ties and tote bags.

Perhaps that’s what House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was thinking when his campaign committee dropped $ 6,195 at the Stamford, Connecticut, branch of preppy retail outlet Vineyard Vines.

Scalise’s political director, Tyler Daniel, said the congressman spent the money on items for the whip team, a primarily private list of Republican lawmakers who represent different interests within the party. According to Scalise’s campaign team, the ties and totes were this year’s traditional whip team gift, which is given to members at the beginning of a new session of Congress.

“He takes being on the team pretty seriously. This was just a way to wear the team jersey,” Daniel said.

Daniel said the ties and tote bags were not adorned with Vineyard Vines’ signature whales or even little Republican elephants. Daniel would not say which members of Congress are part of the whip team.

Though he’s occupied the whip job for less than a year, Scalise has proved himself to be a formidable fundraiser. Despite recent revelations about past ties to a group started by white supremacist David Duke, Scalise raised a record-breaking $ 1.5 million for his re-election campaign and leadership PAC between Jan. 1 and March 31. According to The Hill, the fundraising feat impressed Republican strategists and donors.

Daniel said the the scandal didn’t deter donors from giving to the congressman.

“Folks that have supported Mr. Scalise forever know his true character and know who Mr. Scalise truly is,” Daniel said.

The matching ties were only a small part of the congressman’s overall spending this year. According to NOLA.com, Scalise gave $ 350,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee, as well as $ 250,000 to Republican members of Congress.

Campaign 2016: Hillary Clinton to Replace Her Cold Cyborg Heart With a Human One

As part of the launch for her 2016 presidential campaign, representatives of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have confirmed she will replace her cold cyborg heart with a human one. “This is just one way of tweaking the Clinton brand in the months to come,” said Team Hillary media Field Marshal Ernest T. Stickler, following Clinton’s presidential announcement via video message. “We want to show America the real Hillary: the spontaneous Hillary; the fun, breezy Hillary; the Hillary who doesn’t need constant battery charges or modifications to her enhanced biofuel cells.”

The human heart for Clinton will be provided by Malcolm Whitloor, a 42-year-old sales manager and lifelong Democrat from Eaton Rapids, Michigan, whose last words, according to inside sources, were, “What time is it? How did you get in my house?” The operation to replace Clinton’s present cybernetic power source will be streamed online and, if successful, will be followed by a procedure to remove the array of crystalline emotion-inhibitors that are surgically fused to her brain stem.

“We predict Ms. Clinton will make a full recovery, but it may take a while for her to operate at full capacity and successfully interact with other humans,” said Stickler. “As a result, she will not be able to campaign or communicate directly with anyone until, oh, let’s tentatively say November 8, 2016.”

Clay Aiken: My Campaign Faced So Much Cynicism, We Called It ‘What The F**k Mountain’

Clay Aiken, the runner-up from the second season of “American Idol” who lost his bid for Congress in North Carolina in 2014, told HuffPost Live he faced a great deal of cynicism when he first announced his political plans.

“Yeah, there was cynicism. I mean, we called it, we called it ‘What The Fuck Mountain’ for a while,” said Aiken, who’s been busy promoting a documentary series he filmed for the Esquire Network called “The Runner-Up.” “We called it that for a while because it was that reaction that people had when they found out Clay Aiken’s running for Congress. ‘What the,’ you know?”

Aiken, a Democrat, was defeated by Rep. Renee Elmers (R-N.C.) in the race to represent the state’s 2nd District. He recently told Time another run for office could be in his future.

“The Runner-Up” premieres Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET on the Esquire Network.

Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel Campaign Wins With Lusciously Thick Models [Photos]

There is a beef brewing in the lingerie aisle and it’s all over the size of the woman.

Lane Bryant sent some shots in Victoria’s Secret comfort zone in the form of pleasantly thick models earlier today to kick off their #ImNotAngel campaign. It was a direct response to Vicky’s 2014 “Perfect Body” initiative that seriously alienated a huge population of female consumers. The Lane Bryant #ImNoAngel campaign brought together some of the industry’s top, so-called plus models and support from Hip-Hop legends Salt-N-Pepa.

Via Yahoo:

On Monday, plus-size retailer Lane Bryant launched a campaign for their lingerie collection Cacique, that is all about redefining sexy. The #ImNoAngel print, TV, and social media campaign stars plus-size models Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Candice Huffine, Victoria Lee, Justine Legault, and Elly Mayday.

“Our ‘#ImNoAngel’ campaign is designed to empower ALL women to love every part of herself,” said Lane Bryant CEO and President, Linda Heasley. “Lane Bryant firmly believes that she is sexy and we want to encourage her to confidently show it, in her own way.” The campaign, which is a response to the Victoria’s Secret’s Angels campaigns, encourages women celebrate their shape by posting selfies with the hashtag #ImNoAngel—there are already over 4,000 photos using the hashtag on Instagram. Each week on the Lane Bryant website consumers will be introduced to one of the campaign stars, beginning with Nebraska native and Sports Illustrated star Ashley Graham.

Hit the gallery below to see the fruits born from Lane Bryant’s new campaign. It looks delicious.

Jazz Jennings, Transgender Teen, Becomes Face Of Clean & Clear Campaign

Things just keep getting better and better for Jazz Jennings — and hopefully that means things will get better for all of us.

The 14-year-old transgender teen announced this week that she is one of the new faces of Clean & Clear’s “See The Real Me” ad campaign, which features a social media push that asks people to use the #SeeTheRealMe hashtag to share personal stories that promote natural beauty.

Jennings told The Huffington Post:

“I feel really honored to be part of The #seetherealme campaign. It’s really amazing, as it helps many teen girls who are struggling. It helps them to find themselves and be true to who they are. I hope they can learn to be brave and not care what other people think about them, because if they just stay positive and spread love, then others will be true friends who will accept them no matter what.”

This has been quite the week for Jennings. In addition to the launch of her Clean & Clear campaign, it was also revealed that she will star in an 11-part TLC reality television series.

Jennings, who was assigned male at birth and began identifying and presenting as female soon after, has worked tirelessly to bring visibility to the transgender community. She’s appeared on numerous talk shows, co-authored a children’s book about being trans and was named one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential teens in 2014.

Due to Jennings bravery and insistence on living as her true self both on and off camera, she is helping to change the way the world sees transgender people. She claims she’s “just having fun being one of the girls” in her new Clean & Clear video, above, but we know better: she’s transforming the world.

Fabolous Leads “Rocawear BLAK Is The New Black” Campaign [Photos]

You can’t really call it a comeback because Fabolous has been here for years. Yet and still, his “technically” 2015 album, The OG Project and recent alignment with Roc Nation has the Brooklyn boy back on his A-game.

Like he did a few months ago, Loso is steering the ship for Rocawear BLAK’s Spring/Summer line, which is a play off of everyone’s favorite prison show.

Much like the aforementioned critically acclaimed album, the new campaign titled “Rocawear BLAK Is The New Black” gives fans a throwback feel of the culture, utilizing a 90s cultural mix of Hip-Hop, Grunge and Punk sensibilities.

It’s important for me to align myself with a brand that speaks to my direction and focus,” Fabolous said of his endorsement. “The Rocawear BLAK collection consists of pieces that compliment my style and the overall brand ethos speaks to what I represent.”

Peep Loso stunt on ‘em in the new Rocawear BLAK line which can be snagged via the official website.

Campaign Launched To Put Rosa Parks & Other Women On The $20 Bill

Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, and more than a dozen other women should be on the $ 20 bill, according to a new campaign launched by a feminist group. The non-profit, Women On 20s, wants to diversify U.S. currency to commemorate the 100th anniversary of 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote.

From Women On 20s:

“It seems fitting to commemorate that milestone by voting to elevate women to a place that is today reserved exclusively for the men who shaped American history. That place is on our paper money. And that new portrait can become a symbol of greater changes to come.

Let’s make the names of female “disrupters” — the ones who led the way and dared to think differently — as well-known as their male counterparts. In the process, maybe it will get a little easier to see the way to full political, social and economic equality for women. And hopefully it won’t take another century to realize the motto inscribed on our money: E pluribus unum, or “Out of many, one.”

The group listed 15 women of history more fitting for the $ 20 bill than President Andrew Jackson, who held office from 1829-1837. Jackson was a slave owner that was against the idea of paper currency, and championed the “Indian Removal Act of 1830” (the title is self explanatory, but if you need more information click here).

Sourjourner Truth, Shirley Chilsholm, Margaret Sanger, Elanor Roosevelt, and Susan B. Anthony, are included on the replacement list. The candidates will be narrowed down to a top 3 via public votes. Voting closes at the end of March.

“Many women contribute to our society, philosophy and culture,” founder Barbara Ortiz Howard told Yahoo News. “It’s an opportunity to have a very rich history lesson for everyone.”

The Secretary of the Treasury was granted the power to chose which presidents appear on currency in 1862. In 1929, the responsibility the Treasury picked a special committee for the task.

Underwear Campaign Shares Powerful #BriefMessage About Violence Against Women

No, these women aren’t getting their panties in a bunch. They’re just getting the world to listen.

Across the globe, more than a third of women have been affected by physical or sexual violence, according to a 2013 WHO report, but those figures may be even higher considering victims’ reluctance to report such crimes.

To speak out against such widespread abuse, advocates are sharing powerful messages written on their underwear –- a campaign that launched in conjunction with Sunday’s International Women’s Day.

The performance piece is the brainchild of aleXsandro Palombo, an artist known for such subversive series as Disney princesses with disabilities and female cartoons depicted as domestic abuse victims.

Palombo put a call out asking women to express their messages against machismo and violence, using the hashtag #BriefMessage.

The campaign falls in line with this year’s theme for Women’s Day, which is focusing on a “the year of action” for gender equality, particularly in the economic realm.

While a lack of data has precluded researchers from quantifying exactly how violence translates into economic losses, experts agree that there is an undeniable connection.

Victims are saddled with medical bills, injuries that could prevent them from working and psychological issues that can affect their productivity, according to the UN.

It’s often the patriarchal systems that are to blame for subjugating women both economically and physically.

One-third of women in 33 developing countries say they can’t refuse sex with their partners, the World Bank reported. Intimate partner violence is more prevalent in impoverished households, but women with stable economic footing are better able to withstand such injustice. Property ownership, for example, helps to amplify a woman’s voice and increase her bargaining power in the household.

Experts say that ending violence against women requires on-the-ground community efforts.

In her recent HuffPost blog, Chelsea Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, outlined a three-pronged approach to end this epidemic.

Based on experts’ reports, Clinton pushed for changing long-held social norms, promoting solutions within the private sector and engaging with the military, universities, economists and other unlikely partners to create strong allies to stand up to violence.

“In order to celebrate and scale the gains, as well as understand where and why the gaps persist, we must continue to share with one another what works and what doesn’t,” Clinton wrote. “We must continue to work together and learn together so that we can create dynamic and lasting solutions to end violence against women and girls, in all its forms, both here and around the world.”
