“Game of Thrones” season premier ratings were almost as impressive as Daenerys Targaryen’s massive, flying dragons.
DESERT MIRAGE: The design idea for Christian Louboutin‘s third boutique in Las Vegas was to fashion an oasis in the middle of the desert.
The 1,442-square-foot store, located in The Shops at Crystals mall inside the Aria Resort & Casino, includes a reclaimed wood facade that underwent a bleaching and inking process to give it a black-and-white finish. Metal displays mimic those of garden gates and also help cordon off different sections of the store. Custom wallpaper and photographs also adorn the store’s interior that continue the abstract garden theme.
The boutique carries women’s and men’s footwear, handbags and small leather goods and joins other recent additions to the Shops at Crystals such as Céline and Audemars Piguet.
The mall, located on the Las Vegas strip, is home to a roster of luxury brands that also includes Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Saint Laurent.
Louboutin already has boutiques at the Grand Canal Shoppes and the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, also both located on the Strip.
The boutique opening at the Shops at Crystals follows the opening of a third Los Angeles Christian Louboutin at the Brentwood Country Mart in April.
NBC nabbed what it claims was an exclusive interview with Donald Trump on Sunday (in reality, ABC also aired footage from a Martha Raddatz interview with the businessman). Since then, sister network MSNBC has played the exchange with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” so many times it makes you wonder whether the producers have lost their minds.
Since Sunday, when the network promoted the interview on three of its morning shows, it has run the same clip of Donald Trump and Chuck Todd in the reality TV star’s private plane a whopping 51 times. In total, MSNBC has featured parts of the clip 79 times up until “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell” Tuesday evening.
The media continue to air silly segments asking why Donald Trump is leading in the polls, but the answer is simple: As political scientist John Sides has shown, the reality TV star’s standing in the polls is commensurate to the amount of media coverage he gets.
So when MSNBC inevitably impanels a group of talking heads to talk about why Trump’s numbers keep ticking up, the network might want to consider the effect its own Trump-mania might have on the campaign.
