Charlotte McKinney Talks Wolf & Whistle Collaboration and Learning Not to Compare Herself to Other People

CONFIDENTLY SPEAKING: Model and actress Charlotte McKinney is trying her hand at lingerie with a capsule collection for Wolf & Whistle.
Many know the influencer for her roles in “Baywatch,” “Flatliners,” and ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” but designer is a new moniker. “I have been looking for a lingerie line to collaborate with. It’s something that has always been a big part of my life — underwear. For me, it was kind of a no-brainer,” McKinney said. “This was the first time I had free creative control and not just being a model walking on a shoot. They were my pieces and my vision.”
Offered in sizes 2 to 12, and 32 to 36 B through G, the collection is meant to send a message of body confidence, she said. “Any girl of any size can put this line on and feel sexy and feel good. It is definitely an empowering kind of statement.” she said.
But keeping things really simple was the toughest part. “I wanted to just strip it down and keep it really clean and nice,” McKinney said. “People always want more and more [details.] For me, with lingerie, I think less is more.”

Chinatown Market Collaborates With Good Charlotte

Chinatown Market has jumped into the musician merchandise category.
The Los Angeles-based streetwear brand also runs a consulting agency and has done merchandise work for Warner Music Group and Live Nation, but this is the first time it is lending the Chinatown Market name and logo to product.
Mike Cherman, founder of Chinatown Market, said he was good friends with Josh Madden, brother to Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, and after finding out Joel was a fan of the brand, they decided to team up.
“Growing up I was a fan of Good Charlotte,” Cherman said. “And eventually we were at a dinner and just said we have to do this. It was good to work on something this scale, and it’s something to be said for Good Charlotte. They did a BAPE collaboration and now we are reintroducing them on a whole different platform.”
The first drop from the collection includes a T-shirt, hoodie and stickers that retail in different packages ranging from $ 10 to $ 105. They are available to purchase on Good Charlotte’s web site. Good Charlotte will release its seventh studio album, “Generation Rx,” on Sept. 14 and will go on a North American tour this fall. Cherman said this will

The Sweet Princess Charlotte Detail You May Have Missed in Prince Louis’ Christening Portraits

Mommy’s little helper!

Princess Charlotte is no stranger to stealing the spotlight, and the official portraits from Prince Louischristening, released Sunday, were no exception.

In the group shot with all the royal family members, including uncle Prince Harry and aunt Meghan Markle, Charlotte sits next to mom Kate Middleton. While everyone else looks at the camera and smiles (including a wide grin from Prince George, who is perched on dad Prince William‘s lap), the proud big sister is focused only on Louis as she lovingly gazes at her baby brother and adorably holds his hand.

When Kate’s side of the family — including a pregnant Pippa Middleton — joins the group, Charlotte directs her attention towards the camera and candidly holds her leg as she sits on the couch.

Charlotte also steals the show in a portrait of the family of five, where she poses holding Louis’ christening robe with her leg to the side in a little ballerina stance.

RELATED: That Smile! Prince Louis Is the Happiest Baby in Newly Released Christening Portrait with Mom Kate

The 3-year-old has been taking her duties as a big sister seriously from the start. In an adorable photo of the pair taken just nine days after Louis’ birth on May 2 (Charlotte’s birthday), Charlotte cradles Louis in her lap and places a sweet kiss on her sleeping little brother’s head.

Both that photo as well as a solo shot of of the newborn royal were taken by Kate at the family’s home at Kensington Palace.

The portrait of Charlotte and Louis closely resembled the sweet image of big brother Prince George planting a kiss on his baby sister’s forehead a month after her birth in 2015.

Charlotte has proven to be protective of her baby brother as well. The little princess appeared to have a cheeky message for photographers at Louis’ christening last Monday. As she exited the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace with her family after the ceremony, she appeared to tell the gathered media: “You’re not coming.”

Following the christening, guests of William and Kate were invited to a private tea at Clarence House, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall‘s official London residence. There, they were served slices from a tier of Will and Kate’s 2011 wedding cake.

Queen Hands Honors to Jo Malone, Charlotte Tilbury, Caroline Neville

LOCAL COLOR: It’s that time of year again, when Queen Elizabeth doles out her birthday honors and the royals and British military celebrate the monarch’s official birthday with the Trooping the Colour parade.
Although the queen’s 92nd birthday fell on April 21, the official celebration always takes place in June, a tradition that dates to 1748. A great display of British military might, the event involves the guards of the Household Division and Horse Guards in the British Army.
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part for the first time, with Meghan Markle wearing an off-the shoulder rose-colored dress by Carolina Herrera and a Phillip Treacy hat. She also made her first appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, waving to the public as a fully-fledged member of Britain’s royal family.

Charlotte Moss Creates Collection for Ibu

By Women, For Women: Charlotte Moss is spreading her wings.
The interior designer and lifestyle authority collaborated on fall clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories for Ibu, a three-year-old brand offering artisanal wares handmade by women in 34 nations. Moss and Ibu founder and creative director Susan Walker showcased the goods Wednesday and Thursday at Ceylon et Cie in Dallas.
From a Panamanian mola clutch to a cream and black felted wool coat made in Kyrgyzstan, Charlotte Moss for Ibu merges ethnic motifs with urban sophistication.
“It’s almost evergreen,” said Moss, gazing at a rack of the designs. “A caftan is forever. I often look at it as, ‘How do I justify certain prices for fashion when you know it’s done next season?’ Now I want to dress like this. We’re a global world, and it’s global attire.”
Walker is a former minister and trained weaver who got the idea for Ibu while visiting Timor and noticing that tourist shops sold soulless trinkets instead of native craftwork.
“There are people who want to pay for the real deal,” she said. “Women were putting their stories into textiles, and it’s a cultural language. I wanted to save that and put money into the hands of the women

Charlotte Church Secretly Marries Johnny Powell 3 Months After Miscarriage: ‘Seriously Happy People’

Charlotte Church is a married woman!

The singer announced on Wednesday morning that she and musician Johnny Powell tied the knot by sharing a photo from their wedding ceremony. In the snap, both Church and her now-husband smile as they hold hands under a tree adorned with flower decorations.

“Seriously happy people,” the 31-year-old captioned the photo shot by her cousin Elliot Cooper, adding several heart eye emojis.

The bride wore a white gown with off-the-shoulder sleeves and a floral crown, while Powell went for an nontraditional patterned suit.

The happy news comes three months after Church announced she had lost the baby that the couple was expecting.

“Charlotte and Johnny are very sad to announce that they lost their baby. Now is a time for grieving and being together as a family,” the statement shared on Twitter read. “We kindly ask everyone to respect that peace.”

The baby, due in November, would have been Church’s third child. She shares Ruby, 10, and Dexter, 8, with ex Gavin Henson.

RELATED VIDEO: Charlotte Church Loses Baby Weeks After Announcing Pregnancy: ‘Now Is a Time for Grieving’

“It’s great, it’s lovely,” she said, adding that her pregnancy “feels very different this time around,” when compared to first becoming a mother at 21.

Prince George And Princess Charlotte Steal The Show At Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

In a twist that should shock no one, all eyes were on Prince George and Princess Charlotte at their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding Saturday.

Prince William’s sister-in-law looked absolutely stunning in a a high neck, lace Giles Deacon gown with a long train and bespoke veil, but his tiny children gave her a run for her money doing their duties as page boy and bridesmaid.

Charlotte looked adorable in a white short-sleeved dress with a big pink bow and floral head piece. George, who is getting bigger every day, looked oh-so-dapper in a white collared shirt and short trousers.

The former Kate Middleton, who looked beautiful in a long-sleeved, pale pink dress with a matching fascinator, reportedly expressed some concern on Tuesday over how her little ones would behave during the nuptials. From the looks of it, though, all they did was manage to look even cuter than usual.

Perhaps they’ll be reprising these roles for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding next? We can only dream.

Charlotte Rampling Shares Fear of the Dark at Loewe Show

DARK MATTER: The Loewe show on Saturday morning, held in a blacked-out space inside UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, brought out a fear of the dark in guests including Charlotte Rampling.
Guided by ushers with torchlights, the British actress had to cross three rooms to get to her seat. The only other sources of light were the spotlights trained on photographs from the Twenties by Lionel Wendt and the orchids dotted throughout the space.
“I did something which really worried me once in Berlin. I was taken during the festival, when I was president, to a restaurant run by blind people, and they take you into complete darkness,” she said.
“Here it’s not complete darkness, but something does happen to me. I’m not that comfortable with it, although I just love to be able to focus on what I’m seeing, from the orchids and the photography – just that they’re brought out in this way I think is extraordinary,” Rampling continued.
“I think the concept is extraordinary and I love it. It doesn’t really matter what I feel, because it’s actually what’s going to happen that’s important,” she said (sounding like a pro who is used to taking direction.)
Rampling will be seen next in “The Sense

Charlotte Dellal Hosts ‘Wild’ Dinner in London

LONDON – “I wanted everything to be leopard, even the guests, which is why we had a strict ‘leopard’ dress code,” said Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal at the dinner she hosted to preview her spring-summer 2016 collection. However, not everyone observed the mandate: Dellal’s brother, Alexander, was shamefully leopard-free. But the shoe designer soon solved that: “I cut a corner from a table cloth to make him a pocket square.”
“It’s like being in the most glamorous safari tent in the world,” summed up furniture and interior designer Francis Sultana. The walls and ceiling of the private room at Daphne’s restaurant in South Kensington had been festooned with custom-printed fabric in the Charlotte Olympia signature leopard spots, which matched the tablecloths and seat cushions.
After dinner, bingo cards printed with shoes and bags from the new collection were handed out with gold bingo markers, and presenter George Lamb ran a semi-legit bingo game, with three big toy leopards as the prizes. Derek Blasberg won the first round of the game but donated his trophy to Arizona Muse.
“That’s probably the nicest thing Derek’s ever done,” said the London-based model. “I’m going to pop it in my son’s bedroom tonight so he wakes

Royal Family Releases First Photos Of Princess Charlotte With Prince George

Yep, they’re siblings all right!

The British royal family on Saturday released a new photo of Princess Charlotte and her older brother Prince George, the first to feature both siblings together. It’s also the first public photo of Charlotte since the days following her birth in early May:

According to The Telegraph, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, took the photo of her children herself in mid-May, when little Charlotte was only two weeks old.

“There was a very warm public response when Princess Charlotte was born, which was very much appreciated by the Duke and Duchess, and so they wanted to share this with the public,” an unnamed royal source told the paper.

Kensington Palace teased the photo of Charlotte and George on Twitter prior to its release, referring to it as “very special” and adding, “Can’t wait to share it with you!”

Prince William and Duchess Kate currently reside in Anmer Hall, where they’ll raise their young family — aided by a full-time nanny — for the next few years, BBC reports.

Following the release of the initial photo, the family shared more photos of the brother and sister on Facebook:

Anya Hindmarch, Charlotte Stockdale Launch “Sticker Shop”

STICK IT: Break out your trapper keeper — stickers are back en vogue. At least, those of the Anya Hindmarch variety are. On Tuesday evening, Barneys New York hosted a cocktail party to fete the British designer’s “Sticker Shop,” a collection of high-end embossed leather stickers, done in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of Chaos Fashion, meant to decorate bags, cell phones, or any other undecorated surfaces. “I love the idea of taking something really beautiful, like a bag, and disrupting it and making it a bit personal,” said Hindmarch. “Fashion should always make you smile, and I love stickers, which was my way of doing fashion at school.” The designer stayed close to the Barneys bigwigs — Mark Lee, Daniella Vitale, Simon Doonan and Tomoko Ogura — while accepting air kisses and congratulations from fans and friends. Other guests, including Mamie Gummer, Kate Foley, Sofia Sanchez de Betak,Sabine Heller and Katie Ermilio, hobnobbed around the first floor, swilling Champagne and posing for Instagram pictures against a blank wall set up with actual, removable stickers in the likeness of Hindmarch’s designs. The kitchy options were endless — smiley faces, Band-Aids, storm clouds, fried eggs, etc. As for Hindmarch’s favorite? “I quite like the one that

Heels Giving You the Pinch? Charlotte Dellal Shows How to Dress Up Your Flats and Still Look Festive!

the-coveteur

We all love how heels look, but sometimes, no matter how much we hate admitting it, they pinch. As a designer and mother, Charlotte Dellal, designer of her namesake label Charlotte Olympia, loves heels with all her heart but definitely sees flats as a sartorial necessity. She creates for the modern woman’s wardrobe, telling us, “being at work full time and a mother of three, I like to design flats that can be dressed up or dressed down; whether I am at the office, in a meeting, picking up my boys from school, or running around after them in the park.” Moreover, Charlotte draws inspiration from her own life and says, “I love to give my collections a soul and a story. I love collecting beautiful things and I translate this by transforming everyday objects into something wearable.”

Though originally known for her sky-high heels (and we really do mean sky-high!), Charlotte introduced her first Kitty flats with her fall 2011 “To Die For” collection (inspired by the Agatha Christie novels of the 1930s) and they have been a staple ever since. Initially, Charlotte tells us, “The idea was to create a shoe inspired by a men’s smoking slipper as typically worn in those days. I wanted to make it more feminine and flirty like a cat; I turned the traditionally high-cut vamp into ears and replaced the classic embroidered monogram with a feline face. The ‘Kitty’ is now a signature style and returns each season updated to suit the mood of the collection.” She has even recently come out with a Kitty & Co Collection, giving each cat-inspired flat a unique expression and personality.

charlotte-olympia

As a Kitty flats lover, Charlotte appreciates the necessity for flats to be dressed up or down and tries to translate that into the designs of her iconic flats. Though her favorites are the classic red leopard Bisoux style flats, claiming, “I am never without red lips or leopard print, so [these] shoes are everything I love wrapped into one!” Charlotte also sings the praises of a classic black flat, telling us, “my black velvet signature Kitty flats are very easy to wear, they look equally good with jeans or with a little dress.” And we couldn’t agree more!
