It’s true, fashion ads enjoy pushing the boundaries of “tastefulness,” but now, the UK is pushing back. Cara Delevingne’s naked bathtub ad for Tom Ford’s Black Orchid perfume has been banned from appearing within 100 meters of any schools, with critics calling it “inappropriate” and “degrading to women.” Let the heated Internet discussions on censorship begin!

In just five short years, eyewear brand Warby Parker has changed the e-commerce game and built itself into an e-tail giant. On Thursday it was announced that the hipster-friendly company had raised another $100 million in funding, raising its valuation to over $1.2 billion. The brand plans to use the funds to open more brick-and-mortar stores, with eight new locations scheduled to open by the end of this year. [The Wall Street Journal]

George Clooney may have more in common with Kanye West than you’d think. Clooney, like West, is apparently “very involved” in helping his wife with fashion choices. According to an insider, the actor tells Amal Clooney what looks good and what doesn’t, and even installed a runway in their L.A. home for her to model the looks. Now that is true love.Source link

TV Ratings: ‘Shark Tank’ Spinoff Opens Strong, ‘Blue Bloods’ Jumps in Finale

‘Beyond the Tank’ is Friday’s highest-rated debut in over a year.

Two hours of Sharks worked well during its first night out on ABC. The premiere of Shark Tank spinoff Beyond the Tank opened to a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, the highest-rated Friday launch in over a year.

The long-awaited coda to the entrepreneurial competition followed its parent series’ 1.6-rated outing, off two tenths of a point from last week’s Jenner-boosted episode.

CBS capped off another season of Blue Bloods, rising three-tenths of a point from its most recent episode for a 1.3 rating in the key demo. Both The Amazing Race (1.0 adults) and Hawaii Five-0 (1.2 adults) held steady before.

Elsewhere in scripted, NBC’s Grimm (0.9 adults) and the CW’s Messengers (0.2 adults) were both steady.

Hollywood’s Latest Timepiece Trends

Hollywood’s Latest Timepiece Trends

Illustration by: Kavel Rafferty

This story first appeared in the May 8 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. To receive the magazine, click here to subscribe.

Over a decade ago, I noticed a male colleague of mine at Endeavor (now WME) wearing a 44mm diameter Audemars Piguet. Then it seemed everyone — friends, associates, athletes and celebrities — was sporting large-faced timepieces. The look was flashy, confident and an uber-masculine way to signal status and spending power. I fell in love with a 42mm stainless-steel Breitling Chronometre, my first large-faced luxury timepiece. Over time, the trend went extreme. Arnold Schwarzenegger sported an outrageous 53mm U-Boat — not quite beer-can diameter, but getting there.

Perhaps it’s just the fashion pendulum swinging back again, or men’s style maturing overall, but a lot of guys in Hollywood now are wearing smaller watches. I was at dinner recently with a few industry friends (agents, attorneys, executives) and all of the gentlemen were wearing expensive watches, but they weren’t chunky. They ranged from a Bremont to a Patek to a Rolex Milgauss — all elegant at 38mm to 40mm. As stylist Miles Siggins, who dresses Ryan Seacrest, tells me, “There is a definite trend to smaller, thinner cases, like the Zenith Ultra Thin, that started a year or so ago.”

Meanwhile, some of the brands associated with oversizing are downsizing. You now can get 40mm and 42mm from Panerai. The majority of Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshores went from 44mm to 42mm last year. And Breitlings that were once a whopping 48mm are offered at a (still husky) 44mm. “The watch industry is now trying to find a happy medium around 40mm to 42mm. Some manufacturers are even offering the same watch in different sizes,” says watch collector and Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick, who, even at 6-foot-4, prefers elegant 37mm to 39mm watches by F.P. Journe and Patek Philippe. (Some watches that I currently love in the 38mm to 40mm range are a Vacheron Constantin, an IWC Chronograph and the rose-gold Panerai Radiomir.)

At the same time, Swiss makers are releasing women’s watches bigger than some of the men’s styles. At the Baselworld watch fair in March, Tag Heuer debuted a special-edition Carrera (with British supermodel Cara Delevingne) black-on-black watch that measures 41mm across. Both Parmigiani and Tissot brought out 42mm women’s watches. “The boyfriend jean has become ubiquitous … why not steal the boyfriend’s watch, too?” says stylist Jeanne Yang (whose client list includes Christian Bale). “For women, there’s a certain masculine, cool, powerful look to it.”

Don’t get me wrong: Large-faced watches for guys are not going away. Watch devotees always will own at least one large-faced watch and one smaller timepiece. Large watches look great for when you are active and not wearing a dress shirt. The only rule is that a watch shouldn’t be so big that the lugs stick out past your wrist. While a mega 48mm Hublot might look great on Michael Strahan, for the rest of us with smaller wrists, it won’t. As a style consultant, if there is one piece of advice I can impart, it’s that wearing a watch is like wearing clothes. Don’t let your timepiece wear you; you wear the timepiece.

‘No Stranger Than Love': Newport Beach Review

‘No Stranger Than Love': Newport Beach Review

The Bottom Line

There’s nothing there

Venue

Newport Beach Film Festival (Closing Night)

Cast

Alison Brie, Justin Chatwin, Colin Hanks

Director

Nick Wernham

Given so many romantic comedies are crushingly conventional in both style and content, it’s hard not to give No Stranger Than Love credit for taking a interesting risk with its basic, batty premise: Just before schoolteacher protagonist Lucy (Alison Brie) is about to have sex with her married colleague Clint (Colin Hanks), a three-foot-wide hole magically opens up beneath his feet, plunging him into an extra-dimensional abyss where he spends the rest of the film, alive and audible but suspended in total blackness.

However, although that striking inciting incident sets up expectations for something inventive and edgy — a little bit Charlie Kaufman-esque, say, with a dash of Groundhog Day sci-fi surrealism by way of early Hal Hartley — sadly the rest of director Nick Wernham’s debut, written by Steve Adams, is disappointingly bland and dramatically wan, and laced with some painfully pretentious dialogue. Hard-core fans of Community and Mad Men’s incomparable Brie (for we are many) could raise an indulgent cult following for this offbeat item on VOD platforms, but theatrical distributors will be less affectionate.

It seems like every guy in the small town where pretty, kind-hearted Lucy Sherrington (Brie) lives is besotted with her, from the principal (Jonathan Potts) and science teacher Vernon (Mark Forward) at the high school where she teaches art, to the town drunk (Paul Fauteux) and the local garbage men. Lucy can’t get through a single day without three guys hitting on her or declaring undying love, but she declines each advance with her characteristic sweetness and gentle forbearance. Clint Coburn (Hanks), the school’s football coach, is in with a better chance than most, even though he’s married to Verna (Robin Brule, an MVP brought in far too late in the narrative game). But on the night they’ve decided to consummate their love, that aforementioned hole opens up in the middle of Lucy’s living room floor, which rather kills the moment.

Although the two are understandably shocked and baffled by this peculiar turn of events, Clint is unharmed and can be heard even though he seems to be thousands of feet from the surface. He sort of begins to enjoy the flotation tank-like experience of hovering in total blackness. More worried about being busted for adultery than anything else, Lucy and he agree to keep his situation a secret until she can aquire enough rope to haul him out. When Rydell (Justin Chatwin), a soulful tough guy with a penchant for poetry writing, shows up in town looking for Clint to collect on a gambling debt, he seems like the perfect candidate to pin suspicion on for Clint’s absence. But then Lucy and Rydell start to feel a mutual attraction, and it gets complicated.

In actual fact, the script’s problem is a distinct lack of complication that would enrich, build on and harmonize with the whole portal to another dimension thing. It’s not a problem there’s a hole, as it were, in the common-sense logic of the film’s world; it’s that there’s a big, gaping hole where the illogic should be, a whole lot of nothing where there should be metaphor, playfulness, all that juicy, enigmatic, magical-realism stuff that helps films like Being John Malkovich and its many knockoffs become fodder for film-studies essays.

Adams’ dialogue tries to compensate by having some of the characters deliver excruciatingly unconvincing speeches about what the hole might mean (one calls it a “peephole into the vast landscape of our ignorance,” and “exhilarating and humbling view into our frailties and limitations,”) but no one looks like they’re either convinced or even care that much.

As the perky, popular and impossibly nice protagonist, Brie does her best to make this goody-two-shoes less obnoxious than she might have been, but it’s clearly a slog. It’s also possibly a retrograde career move, a step back to the sort of cutesy ingenues she should be growing out of by now. And it doesn’t help that of the dozen or so men who are supposed to be in love with her in the story, she chooses to fall for the dullest, most self-pitying one on offer.

Mike Tobin Explains Mistaken Baltimore Shooting Report

Mike Tobin Explains Mistaken Baltimore Shooting Report

“It would be very hard to duplicate a situation that looked more like a guy being shot,” Fox News correspondent Mike Tobin said on Monday’s “The Five,” explaining a mistaken report that a Baltimore Police officer had shot a man after a chase.

“We saw the foot chase…the officer had his weapon drawn. We heard a gunshot, we saw the person being chased on the ground. I arrived at the conclusion that the individual had been shot, as you naturally would in a situation like that.”

Fox News corrected the report within minutes, with anchor Shepard Smith apologizing-but also strongly defending Tobin as a journalist who would never report something he believed not to be true.

On “The Five,” Tobin said in the same confusing, fast-breaking situation, he’d probably think he’d witnessed a shooting. “I’d be hard pressed not to arrive at the same conclusion.”

Beyonce Is Naked for Met Gala

Beyonce Is Naked for Met Gala

The person we’ve all been waiting for has graced us with her Met Gala presence: Beyonce. Well, sort of.

Beyonce is one of many A-list celebrities who attended the 2015 Met Gala tonight and she certainly made a statement in an almost fully-nude dress on the red carpet. With her famous husband Jay-Z on her arm, no one could take their eyes off of her.
The sheer Givenchy gown had floral embellishments covering up her more intimate areas, but still left little to the imagination. She then turned around to reveal the bootylicious backside of the ensemble, which flashed her flawless derriere.

Bey didn’t walk the red carpet (maybe she wanted to avoid another elevator incident?) but she did post a photo on Instagram with the caption, “Met Gala 2015,” followed up with a few more shots of her nearly nude ensemble. No word yet on who designed the sparkly see-through number, but it sure makes a statement even if it’s no Rihanna situation.
