Knot Standard Gets New Investor

Knot Standard has gotten another infusion.
The New York-based custom men’s brand has received what it characterized as “a significant minority investment” from Provenance, a growth equity investment firm based in Los Angeles. Terms were not disclosed.
In 2015, the brand received a similar investment from Traub Associates.
Founded in 2010, Knot Standard currently operates showrooms in seven cities across the country and said it will use the investment to add showrooms in other markets around the country.
“Knot Standard created an extraordinarily loyal and valuable customer following in the premium/luxury segment of custom men’s apparel, with a true omnichannel system and culture,” said Anthony Choe, founder of Provenance. “We’re proud to partner with the company to replicate their success in other markets throughout the country.”
John Ballay, chief executive officer and cofounder of Knot Standard, said, “Provenance brings tremendous insight as we embark on the next level of growth. Their approach to create value through customer analytics is unparalleled in the investment community.”
“Provenance is a value-added investor and really understands our business and brand,” added Matthew Mueller, Knot Standard’s chief operating officer and cofounder. “We look forward to our continued fruitful partnership for years to come.”

Green Lantern Hal Jordan Gets an Impressive Makeover

Note: this is a spoiler-free advance review for Green Lantern: Earth One, which will be released on Wednesday, March 14.

It’s difficult to understate the influence writer Geoff Johns has had on the Green Lantern franchise since 2004. Johns drastically revamped the mythology, introducing an entire spectrum of Lantern Corps and restoring Hal Jordan to greatness in the process. Even though Johns ended his Green Lantern run in 2013, his influence is clearly felt in every book that’s come along since. That’s all well and good, but at some point there comes a need for DC to try something new and push Green Lantern in a drastically different direction. If only for variety’s sake. Therein lies the appeal of Green Lantern: Earth One. For the first time since Green Lantern: Rebirth, it feels like we’re seeing a wholly unique take on the story of Hal Jordan.

Altuzarra’s La Coupole Venue Gets Guests Reminiscing

DINNER TIME: Legendary Montparnasse Art Deco brasserie La Coupole, which was a home-away-from-home for Paris intellectuals and artists for much of the 20th century, got guests reminiscing at the Altuzarra show Saturday around lunchtime.
“I love this place, I haven’t been for ages,” said Jeanne Damas. “My grandfather restored it in the Seventies. He was an interior designer.”
What is her greatest food memory of the lieu? “Eating oysters,” said Damas, who was sporting a denim look from her own label, Rouje. The brand is currently online only, but a retail outpost could be in the works, she said.
“It’s gorgeous,” enthused Naomi Scott of the mythical venue, with its painted columns, cupola ceiling and mosaic floors. “I’m kind of waiting for them to bring out the food, I wouldn’t mind. Food and fashion is a good combination.”
Speaking of food, Scott was planning a low-key dinner with friends Saturday evening, hoping her favorite French dish would be on the menu. “I love duck. How do you say it? Canard.”
For Pierre Hardy, the venue brought back memories too. “I have spent many a night here,” he said. “In the Nineties, it was really hype to have dinner here before going out, it’s a mythical place.”

DUBAI — Hugo Boss is making efforts to bridge the gap between the brand’s men’s and women’s lines. “We need to bring the woman closer to the [Boss] man and build on our heritage — it’s suiting, it’s precision,” Ingo Wilts, chief brand officer for Hugo Boss, told WWD while here to celebrate the opening of the brand’s new generation store at Mall of the Emirates.
“We have to rebuild the women’s. Our woman always has to be feminine and sensual but she also has to be sexy. I think the mistake we did over the past years, we went a little left, right and center,” said Wilts, who is responsible for all creative and brand management.
“We do need to address the younger customer in our product.”
But he added that they will be driven by styling, not age first and foremost. “You can dress a younger woman with the same product as you dress an older woman. It depends on the styling. The younger woman might wear a skirt with a sneaker and the older woman with a more high heel.” He admitted that overall the brand for women in particular has skewed old. “We want, like everyone wants, to speak

Canada Goose Gets PETA Protestors on Black Friday

Canada Goose had one of the busiest shopping days of the year interrupted by racous protestors.
Roughly 200-plus animal rights activists led by members of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals gathered in the late afternoon of Black Friday outside the year-old Canada Goose store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. The block of Wooster Street where the store is located is home to a number of luxury and fashion brands, including Chanel, Balmain and Ted Baker.
While dozens of shoppers inside the Canada Goose store appeared to be doing little more than waiting out the protestors and a sizable crowd that had gathered to stare, photograph and in a few instances join in, PETA activists chanted, held signs and handed out fliers graphically describing and disparaging the use of down and coyote fur in Canada Goose’s popular winter coats.
A Canada Goose spokeswoman said PETA and other animal rights activist are “grossly misinformed” about the company’s practices around down and fur.
“They ignore the strict government regulation and standards that are in place, as well as our commitment to the responsible use and ethical sourcing of all animal materials in our products,” the spokeswoman said. “While we are unsurprised by their attempt

The Modena, Italy-based company counts 20 stores.
These include a 5,382-square-foot flagship in Los Angeles, which was officially inaugurated earlier this month.
“This is not only our biggest store but also the most beautiful,” Rivetti said enthusiastically. “Since we opened last summer, we can say that it has been working really well, exceeding our expectations.”

“It’s been quite an experience sharing my pregnancy journey so far but I really appreciate all of the positive support from many of you!! I try to always message you back and it’s been great hearing your stories as well!”

Stage also shared a video of her workout that day, which included weighted lunges and squats, and side planks alongside her first son, James, 2.

In a workout video from Aug. 31, Stage said that despite constantly sharing the benefits of exercise during pregnancy, there are still people who accuse her of harming her baby.

“#8monthspregnant and I’m just doing the best that I can and what I believe is the healthiest for baby and myself,” she wrote. “There STILL seems to be some confusion and harsh ignorant opinions about exercising while pregnant and some of you believe it’s putting baby in danger. Do your research and you will see that working out while pregnant (with your doctors consent) has many benefits for mom and baby!”

Stage added words of encouragement for other women.

“Soooooo for all of the women out there who are doing the best they can, I’m proud of you!!! Creating life inside of us is a huge responsibility and we need to support each other instead of judging!!”

LeToya Luckett Gets Engaged — with a Giant Diamond Ring — a Year After Divorce

LeToya Luckett is ready to walk down the aisle again!

The R&B singer is engaged to Texas businessman Tommicus Walker, she announced on Wednesday — sharing a stunning selfie of her jaw-dropping engagement ring on Instagram.

“I said, ‘Yes yeeeesssss’ on his Burfday!!” Luckett, 36, captioned the shot — adding the hashtags, “#issaengagement #GodShowedout #HesaGoodManSavanah #LoveWins #8/16/17.”

Her happy news comes a year after news broke that Luckett split from husband Rob Hillman, whom she married in January of 2016 and split from two months later. Their divorce was finalized last spring.

“Anytime you open up and allow yourself to love and love hard, that’s the risk you take of it possibly not working out,” she revealed to The Breakfast Club in May 2017. “And although we really did love and care for each other, it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.”

RELATED VIDEO: Property Brother Drew Scott Gives The Details On His Wedding Proposal

Luckett — who was one of the original four members of Destiny’s Child and sang on hits such as “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin’” — was surprised by Walker’s proposal, and teared up when he dropped down to one knee in front of their friends and family (including his young daughter).

The happy moment was captured by Luckett’s brother Gavin, who shared it to Instagram. “That one time @letoyaluckett planned a surprise Bday dinner for @iamtwalk2 but he had a bigger surprise for her,” he explained in the caption. “Congrats y’all!!!”

Aside from wedding planning, Luckett is prepping to portray legendary pop and R&B singer Dionne Warwick in the upcoming biopic, Dionne. The film will follow Warwick’s early career spanning from 1962-1968, during which time she recorded some of her biggest hits including “Alfie” and “I Say a Little Prayer.”

Along with channeling Warwick in the movie, Luckett will also record the singer’s songs for the soundtrack.

Amber Rose’s Super NSFW Pantsless Photo Gets Deleted from Instagram — but She’s Not Bothered

This post contains strong language and NSFW images.

Amber Rose made a splash on social media Friday night, posting a pantless (and VERY NSFW) photo to promote her third annual SlutWalk — the Los Angeles event she created with the goal of promoting female empowerment, combating gender inequality and putting an end to victim-blaming by addressing the double-standards placed on woman.

The image — which showed the 33-year-old model completely naked from the waist down — was removed by Instagram within hours of going up, as it violated the site’s no-nudity policy.

“We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram,” Instagram states in their community guidelines.

Rose reacted to the decision with laughter, rolling her eyes in an Instagram video.

“When IG deletes ur fire a– feminist post but you really don’t give a f—- because everyone picked it up already,” she captioned the video — adding the hashtags “#amberroseslutwalk” and “#bringbackthebush.”

The Loveline host also posted the photo to Twitter, where it remains up (warning, link is very NSFW) and has been liked over 50,000 times.

“#Amberroseslutwalk,” she wrote with the image on Twitter, linking to the official site of the event.

Twitter users remained mostly in support of Rose — with some questioning what her 4-year-old son Sebastian would think of the photo.

The third annual SlutWalk is scheduled for Oct. 1 at Downtown Los Angeles’ Pershing Square. While details are still being finalized, the website promises a pep rally and entertainment, art show, musical performance, celebrity quest appearances and testimonials in addition to the awareness walk.

“The Amber Rose SlutWalk Festival is an inclusive space,” the organizers said in a statement on the event’s official site. “This event is a zero-tolerance event, and we do not condone hateful language, racism, sexism, ableism, fat-shaming, transphobia, or any other bigotry. Further, we recognize shaming, oppression, assault, and violence have disproportionately affected marginalized groups, including women of color, transgender people, and sex workers, and we are actively working to center these groups at our events.”

FROM PEN: Christie Brinkley’s Girls Alexa and Sailor Reveal How They’ve Conquered Bullies and Body Shamers (and still love carbs!)

As Rose previously told PEOPLE, she launched the walk after being moved by a photo of a young woman wearing pasties with the words ‘Still Not Asking for It’ written on her chest.

“I wanted to do something,” said Rose, who is well-known for her own revealing, body-confident fashion choices. “The point is you can wear whatever you want and it’s not an invitation.”

Normalization Of The N-Word; Nobody Gets A Pass

Several years ago, National Action Network and I came out strongly against use of the n-word in any context by anyone. We took the firm position that any racially disparaging term must never be accepted or normalized in society. We marched in front of major record labels, and protested against Don Imus who lost his TV and radio shows after I and others demanded accountability for his use of derogatory and inflammatory language. We stepped in when Rush Limbaugh was attempting to buy an NFL team franchise (after making all kinds of disparaging comments), and we have been outspoken on this issue even when others did not stand with us. Yes, a lot of people – including Black rappers – attacked our position, but we remained steadfast. Despite my tremendous respect and personal friendship with Bill Maher, I must now hold him accountable as well. Maher should know better. And since he does, he ought to be dealt with accordingly.

Earlier in the week, we learned that someone scrawled the n-word at the gate of the home of NBA player LeBron James. “No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, you know being Black in America is tough,” James said. “And we got a long way to go, for us as a society and for us as African-Americans, until we feel equal in America.” He is 100 percent correct. For Maher to use that same exact word the same week is beyond reprehensible. To think that it’s OK to joke around and use that term is either insensitive or arrogant, or both.

Just because Maher is liberal and a friend, does not mean he gets to say such a hateful term.

Words have tremendous power. As a comedian, commentator and host of his own weekly show, Maher knows this just as well as anyone. He knows the power and influence that he yields in shaping public discourse and opinions. The fact that he thought he somehow earned a pass for him to say those words is simply outrageous and unacceptable. That is why NAN and I call for an immediate meeting with HBO to discuss this very grave matter. Just because Maher is liberal and a friend, does not mean he gets to say such a hateful term; there must be one standard. If we use the language of desecration, it normalizes the socialization of desecrating a people of goods, services and human and civil rights.

The n-word has a long history of hate, murder, violence, oppression and terror associated with it. People forget that even in the not-so-distant past, it was used to delegitimize an entire group and deny them voting rights, fair housing, jobs, access to upward mobility and so much more. Today, it is still being used to target, harm and attack folks no matter how successful or famous they are. We cannot accept usage of this term even when it is in the context of a bad joke. A joke, I might add, that made reference to ‘working in the fields’. There is no misconstruing what the subject matter was here. Maher should be ashamed.

I will be the first one to admit that I myself have said it in the past, but as I have stated publicly, I began to understand the power of words years ago and how they can dehumanize, marginalize and exploit people in many ways. This is precisely why NAN and I have been so vocal on this issue for the past decade, and we have no plans of ceasing our work now. At a time when people of color are still being killed in hate crimes, nooses are found in places like the National Museum of African American History and Culture, attacks are taking place across the country and the n-word itself is spray-painted at the home of an NBA star, we must loudly condemn the acceptance of the use of this abhorrent word.

Friends told me this morning that if you take this position you may never be on Maher’s show again (and I have been on frequently). My response is simply this: should Bill be on that show again?

Margaret Zhang Gets Personal in Sydney Photo Retrospective

NOT SO FASHION: Some may think they already know the online style influencer Margaret Zhang, and her eye for photography. After all, Zhang has more than 800,000 Instagram followers and a popular blog called Shine By Three.
But a new photo exhibition at Sydney’s Comber Street Studios is showing a different – and more personal – side to Zhang. “Unseen,” a photographic retrospective presented by Vestiaire Collective, features 39 never-before-published photos.
While they may be promoted by the luxury, second-hand e-commerce site, the photos themselves were completely free from any commercial concerns.
Zhang said it’s a chance to express another side of her personality.
“A lot of my photo work is, commercially-speaking, more fashion focused,” Zhang said. On this occasion, “it’s a little more abstract, a little more still life, more landscape. It’s more about talking to the subject, really connecting with them as an individual.”

In one shot, Zhang shows a girl getting into a pool in Clovelly, one of her favorite beaches in Sydney, while another image was taken on a hiking trek in China. Zhang captures the vibrant colors of the lakes in Jiuzhaigou. The work goes “probably as far back as 2010, when I started publishing professionally,” she said.

Alec Baldwin’s Trump Gets Skewered Again By ‘Lester Holt’ On ‘SNL’

For those who wanted to re-savor NBC’s Lester Holt’s gotcha’ interview with Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin provided a second oh-so-delicious chance in the cold open on “Saturday Night Live.” Only this time it was even more distilled essence of Trump.

“Thank you for having me here, jazz man,” Baldwin’s Trump tell’s Michael Che’s Lester Holt (also called Tupac, O.J. and Kenan by the “president”). “Well, first  all I can just say is, I won the election fair and square, everyone knows that!”

Che begins by grilling “Trump” on firing FBI Director James Comey.

“I fired him because of Russia,” Baldwin admits. “I thought, ‘He’s investigating Russia. I don’t like that. I should fire him.’”

“You’re admitting that? But that’s obstruction of justice,” Che responds, asking the audience gleefully: “Did I get him? Is this all over?”

Then he hears from a manager through his earpiece: ”No I didn’t?” he asks. “Nothing matters? Absolutely nothing matters anymore?” 

After a two-scoop ice cream treat from bubbly ice-cream man Paul Ryan (”beat it, nerd,” Baldwin tells him), Trump denies that he is anything like Richard Nixon. But differences fade when he mimics Nixon’s two-handed victory gesture as Trump emphasizes his two scoops of ice cream.

Trump pats himself on the back for “letting Kellyanne out of the crypt” last week and concedes he might be a “serial tape-ist.” He also has an interesting definition for “priming the pump” before Melania comes to bed — to which Holt responds: “Ew.”

But getting back to reality TV, Holt asks Trump to promise he won’t pick someone “crazy like Judge Judy” to replace Comey.

Baldwin answers: “I can promise you this right now, whoever I chose is going to be so bonkers you’re going to wish like hell it was Judge Judy.”

“Your presidency is like the craziest show on TV,” Che tells him.

“The show is going to run for eight years — even though it should have been canceled months ago,” Baldwin concedes. “We have plenty of fun plot twists coming up. A lot of your favorite characters will be coming back … Kim Jong un, Carter Page … I don’t want to give away too much, but in an upcoming episode we will find out that Kellyanne has been dead this whole time.”

“Holt wraps up: “On behalf of everyone, I just want to say I can’t believe you’re president.”

Chris Rock Gets Brutally Honest About His Cheating And Divorce On Tour

Chris Rock is opening up about his divorce, both on and off the stage.

Currently in the middle of his first nationwide tour in years, Rock sat down with Rolling Stone and shared candid details about his divorce from Malaak Compton-Rock, his wife of 19 years. The pair announced their separation in February 2014 and finalized their divorce, which included a custody battle, in August 2016.

Rock jokingly says he’s on the “alimony tour,” Rolling Stone’s Stephen Rodrick writes.

In his article, Rodrick describes how the comedian brought up his divorce during a show in Denver and described his infidelities:

“’I was a piece of shit,’ says Rock as the crowd goes quiet. He segues into his infidelities and gets disarmingly specific, describing three women: one famous, one semifamous, and one a member of the retail class.

Later, Rodrick writes:

“Rock mentions in his act that he thought he could get away with bad behavior in his marriage because he was the famous breadwinner. He now knows the opposite is true. ‘That’s bullshit,’ he says, rolling his eyes. ‘That actually goes the other way. My faults are magnified. Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down.’

Rock also told Rodrick that while he talks about his divorce during his act, he’s toned it down ― because it’s unfair that he has a microphone and his former wife does not.

“I asked myself, ‘Do I want to be angry for a year?’ It’s not a cool place to be. It’s not healthy,” Rock said.

You won’t find any online videos of Rock’s candid comments, because his “Total Blackout” tour asks audience members to store their phones and other devices in secure pouches that are only unlocked at the end of the show. But the star recently inked a two-special deal with Netflix and plans to tape one of those specials in December.

Rock has been known for his searing commentary on married life, famously saying, “Marriage is so tough, Nelson Mandela got divorced — he got out of jail after 27 years of torture, spent six months with his wife and said, ‘I can’t take this shit no more.’”

Scott Disick Gets Real About His Relationship With Kourtney Kardashian

We all know Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have faced their fair share of ups and downs. The pair, who were together for nine years, officially ended their romantic relationship in 2015, but continue to co-parent their three children, Mason, Penelope and Reign.

Although rumors have been flying recently claiming they’re giving their love another shot, that doesn’t appear to be the case in this clip from the upcoming episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The Huffington Post is exclusively debuting the nearly 2-minute clip, which shows Disick talking with Kourtney’s sisters Kim and Khloe about their situation.   

“I’m still turned on by her, if that’s what you’re asking,” Disick tells a curious Khloe before admitting he’s not dating anyone else. “I mean, I technically could I guess, but I just don’t feel comfortable.”

Kim chimes in to ask whether all the drama has caused Disick to give up on Kourtney.

“No, I mean, she’s a tough girl. It’s tough sometimes,” he admits, continuing, “I feel like I would never be over her. She’s the love of my life, but I try to do everything to be there for her and there’s literally no appreciation for anything, ever.”

Their breakup was reportedly triggered by Disick’s substance abuse issues ― he reentered rehab right before and a couple months after their separation ― in addition to rumors that the he was unfaithful to Kourtney. Still, Disick says in the clip that he’s aware his personal problems have caused a rift between them, but will do whatever he can to prove to Kourtney that they’re meant to be together. 

“I hope that one day she understands I would never want to be with anyone but her,” he says in a taped confessional. 

Watch the full clip above.

How ‘Jane The Virgin’ Gets Motherhood Right

For all its unexpected plot twists, “Jane the Virgin” is a show that’s consistent in its honest and progressive portrayal of strong women. Not only the titular Jane, but her mother, Xiomara, her grandmother, Alba, and Petra, the mother of her son’s half-siblings. (See? Plot twists.)

In the first season of “Jane,” Petra’s cast as the villain, the ambitious ex-wife of Raphael, the man Jane’s having a baby with. She’s a sharp dresser with business acumen and great hair. But she’s more than all that; she’s also lovelorn. As actress Yael Grobglas explained of her character in an interview with The Huffington Post, “she’s not just doing evil to do evil.” The show uses Petra to explore issues like thorny pregnancy and postpartum depression.

“Every time I’ve tried to predict what’s on the show, and I consider myself a pretty creative person, I’ve always been wrong,” Grobglas said. With “down-to-earth characters mixed with huge, telenovela moments,” there’s plenty of room for the characters to learn and grow. This way, they don’t fall into cliche; heroes are never just heroes, mothers are never just mothers, and villains are never just villains.

Below, Grobglas talks about playing a mother on screen, and ― oh yeah ― the show’s bold three-year jump.

What first interested you about the role of Petra?

When I first heard about the role of Petra, I didn’t know what was going to happen with her, I had no idea. I knew she was going to be the villain. I was a little hesitant about taking the role of a villain that could potentially go for ― if you’re lucky ― seven years, 10 years. And then I got on the phone with [showrunner] Jennie Urman, who told me Petra was never going to be two-dimensional, she would always be very complex, she’d be hated one moment and loved the next.

She’s really been so wonderful about keeping up with that. I would have never expected everything with Petra to happen.

Speaking of unexpected turns, last season you were given an extra part on the show, as Petra’s twin sister, Anezka.

I had no idea that was happening. I got the script, like we usually do, one or two days before we started filming, and I read that Petra was disguising herself and getting ready to run away. I thought it was because of her postpartum depression, and I was getting a little worried, because my first go-to thought is that I’m going to get killed off. I think that about everything. And then Anezka shows up at the end of the episode, and suddenly there’s two of me.

For a week beforehand, people who got the script before me were kind of trying to be nonchalant, going, “So, uh, did you read next episode?” And I was like, “No, Jesus, why?”

So I spoke to Jennie and she described her to me, and I was like, what is this character, what is she about? And she spoke about the accent, and she spoke about being a ferocious eater, and having personal space issues, and scratching people, and jumping backwards ― I call it “getting the fear” ― and immediately thought, I know somebody like that. I based her off my cat. And that’s how Anezka came to be.

Is it difficult to toggle between those two very different parts, or is it mostly just exciting?

I have so much more appreciation for people who do this long-term. I never thought about it, but as an actor I depend so much on my costars, and when you’re doing scenes with yourself, you have nobody to play off. You have to come so well-prepared, and predict what you’re going to do.

You touched on this a little already but both Petra and Anezka could be described as the show’s sympathetic villains. How do you approach playing a villain without making her seem purely evil?

I think the most important thing is really in the writing. The way Jennie explained it to me when we had our first conversation was that Petra was the hero of her own story. She really started the show at her most desperate point, she’s in love with someone and he’s leaving her. But she decides to have herself inseminated, and that goes horribly wrong, obviously. So most of her actions, as crazy as they may seem, are justified, to her. It’s not that much of a challenge for me, with such great writing.

She’s not just doing evil to do evil. And if you think about it, most of the crazy stuff she’s done is actually kind of selfless. It’s been to help her mother, or to protect her daughters, protect Raphael.

You mentioned her daughters ― this season we get to see another side of Petra, that of a confident and loving mother. How do you think motherhood fits in with everything else we know about Petra?

I think it’s been so fascinating, because the show manages to capture so many different aspects of what it is to be a mother. Everything went one way for Jane, and then Petra was a way to show a very different approach to motherhood. From the beginning, Jane’s birthing scene and Petra’s birthing scene couldn’t have been more opposite, and then she struggled with postpartum depression, which I thought was so wonderfully done, and such an interesting subject, and something that so many people suffer from.

And she doesn’t have the support system that Jane has; all she has is her crazy mother and crazy sister, left with twins, pretty much alone. I thought it was just wonderful that after the three-year jump, we see her almost dealing with motherhood as if it’s a business project. She’s like, I got this, I can do this.

The three-year jump was such a curveball! Was it a curveball for you, too?

Oh, absolutely. It was so interesting. As a cast, we had a very hard time dealing with knowing that we were losing Brett [Dier] as a cast member, that Michael was going to go. It was kind of a double thing, because we’re so attached to our characters that by now Michael is like a friend of ours. We care about our characters so much, Petra’s like a friend of mine. And that’s how we feel about Michael. It was almost like we’re about to lose someone we very much care about. So we were mourning Michael, and then also mourning the fact that we’re not going to see Brett every day. So that took some time for me to get over.

But then I absolutely loved how they dealt with it. It gave us all a chance to refresh our characters, and find them in a completely new place, and give them this whole new world, from zen Raphael to perfect-mother Petra.

I also wanted to ask about Jane and Petra’s relationship. They don’t always get along, but they don’t get into too many petty catfights, either. Do you have any thoughts on how relationships between women are usually portrayed on TV, and how “Jane the Virgin” manages to combat those stereotypes?

I think there are many different ways that female relationships are portrayed on TV. I think what’s great about Jane and Petra is that they didn’t go in the direction of they hit it off right away, they’re best friends, maybe they have an argument now and then but they’re best friends for life, and they also don’t hate each other. It’s kind of not here, not there. It’s almost like they need each other in spite of themselves.

Petra has a hard time admitting it to herself and to Jane, but she has this great respect for Jane. Jane is someone that she needs in her life. She has a hard time admitting that, because Jane basically has everything Petra doesn’t have.

They have these beautiful moments, and they have hard moments. It’s not a completely natural relationship, but you see that when something really difficult happens, something that’s actually life-or-death, they’re there for each other.

Christine Baranski Gets Recognized More as ‘Leonard’s Mom!’ from The Big Bang Theory Than Any of Her Roles

Christine Baranski is used to fans approaching her on the street but she’s always surprised when most of them say the same thing to her.

“More often than not, they point to me and say, ‘Leonard’s mother!’ even though I appear infrequently as her on The Big Bang Theory,” Baranski tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The show is just such a megahit. There are worse things to be called, believe me.”

Baranski, 64, who is currently starring as attorney Diane Lockhart in The Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight, has been enjoying working on the new series, which is available on CBS All Access. “It’s so funny, I hailed a cab and I got into one that had my picture on the top of it,” she says. “I just had to stand back, get my cell phone out and ask the driver to wait because I was like, ‘This is a once in a lifetime!’ “

“When I got to my apartment, I pulled my doorman over and said, ‘Take a picture of me in the cab!’ ” she continues, laughing. “He didn’t understand and I was like, ‘Look up!’ Yeah, this was a happy arrival home. Most days aren’t like that.”

The actress says she’s learned to appreciate such moments in her career — and life. “When it happens, you have to ride that lovely wave in because usually you are just paddling out,” she adds. “I am very good at standing back and saying, ‘This is a moment to remember.’ “

Tommy Gets Techie for Pitti Uomo Presentation

The traditional runway show is so last century.
So instead of trotting a bevy of male models down a catwalk, Tommy Hilfiger is preparing to unleash a multimedia extravaganza at Pitti Uomo to showcase his fall collection.
Hilfiger’s installation at the Florence trade fair from today through Friday takes the place of his traditional dinner in London, where he’s shown for the past few seasons and continues the designer’s move to reinvent the show format.
Last September, he unveiled his Tommy x Gigi Collection by creating a Tommy Pier at the South Street Seaport in New York City to showcase the see-now-buy-now line of women’s wear. And he has already revealed that his fall women’s show will jump to Los Angeles from New York next month.
Hilfiger’s presentation at Pitti marks the first time the brand will be shown at the Florentine trade show. “It’s the right time,” the designer said.
His participation will serve to showcase three levels of the company’s business: sportswear, tailored clothing and Hilfiger Edition, a modern take on men’s wear classics executed in premium fabrics and with luxe details.
On Tuesday the company will host a two-hour presentation at Palazzo Corsini where 20 looks from the Hilfiger Edition collection will be

Why Sex Gets Better In Old Age

By Miri Forbes, Robert Krueger, Nicholas Eaton

Aging is generally associated with improvements in our quality of life: We become more proficient in our work, learn how to manage our finances better, and our bonds with loved ones deepen. With time and practice, most of the core domains of our lives improve as we develop skills and strategies to manage our lives with more mastery. An exception to this pattern is the quality of our sex lives, which has consistently been reported to deteriorate with age.

2016-12-16-1481921752-3363201-givingkindness.jpg

While this fits with the messages we receive from popular culture, which tell us that sex is a young person’s domain, it is somewhat at odds with the fact that older adults continue to explore and enjoy sexuality well into old age. The majority of men and women over 60 in the U.S. are sexually active, most at least two to three times per month (more often than many younger adults). They also rate sex as an important part of life.

So, if there is no epidemic of age-related frigidity, why would sexual quality of life take a nosedive in later life? A common answer to this question cites declining physical health and sexual functioning with age. Another answer might be: The quality of our sex lives doesn’t decline with age.

Studying sex and aging

There is a key element missing from nearly all studies of sex and aging: studying change over time. If we ask a group of people how satisfied they are with their sex life, and the younger people are more satisfied than the older people, does that mean that aging is responsible for this difference? What if instead the apparent age difference is because people born in the 1930s have different attitudes toward sex than people who grew up after the sexual revolution of the ’60’s and ’70’s?

To get to the bottom of how aging affects sexual quality of life, we analyzed patterns in longitudinal data collected from over 6,000 individuals followed over a period of 18 years, spanning ages 20-93. In 1995, 2004, and 2013, the representative sample of English-speaking Americans completed extensive self-administered survey questionnaires in private and returned them by mail.

A key question for our study was: How would you rate the sexual aspects of your life these days, from the worst possible situation (0) to the best possible situation (10)?

The basic trends in the data suggested that–without taking any other factors into account–sexual quality of life declines with age. But as people in the study aged, they placed more emphasis on the quality–not quantity–of sexual encounters. For example, frequency of sex became less important with age, and the amount of thought and effort invested in sex became more important.

These changing priorities were key predictors of sexual quality of life for older adults, and appeared to buffer its decline. When we matched older and younger adults on key characteristics of their sex lives–along with sociodemographic characteristics, and mental and physical health–older adults actually had better sexual quality of life.

For example, if we compared a 40-year-old man and a 50-year-old man with the same levels of perceived control over their sex life, who invest the same amount of thought and effort in their sex life, have sex with the same frequency and had the same number of sexual partners in the past year, we would expect the 50-year-old to report better sexual quality of life.

This is consistent with the improvement we see in other life domains with age, and highlights the benefits of life experience for sexuality as people learn more about their sexual preferences and their partners’ likes and dislikes. The positive relationship between sexual quality of life and aging was strongest in the context of good-quality romantic relationships, where sexual exploration and a focus on partners’ pleasure is more likely to take place.

Life experience related to a better sex life

Together these findings suggest that as we age, our sexual priorities change and we develop knowledge, skills, and preferences that protect against aging-related declines in sexual quality of life. Since wisdom is “the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment,” our study suggests that life experience is fostering sexual wisdom.

This is great news, as a satisfying sex life has been found to be important for health and well-being, regardless of age. For older adults in particular, being sexually active predicts a longer and healthier life.

We now know that age-related declines in sexual quality of life are largely related to modifiable factors, so we can target sexual skills, beliefs, and attitudes in clinical interventions. Given that our life expectancy continues to grow, this research highlights the opportunity to facilitate positive sexual experiences across the lifespan.

Dallas Cowboys Fan Gets The Best Revenge After Being Dumped By Text

Four months after asking her to marry him, Brenna Clanton’s fiancé broke up with hervia text.

Unfortunately for the fiance, he missed out on an epic Christmas gift from Clanton: Two tickets to see the Dallas Cowboys’ home game against the Detroit Lions the day after Christmas.

Clanton, 30, took her best friend instead and brought a hilarious sign to spread the word about what happened. Here’s a pic posted by Alex McDaniel, an editor at the Oxford Eagle

“My fiance dumped me in a text message,” the Austin, Texas-based hairstylist wrote on the sign. “He should have waited until after Christmas. #nothingincommon” 

Unsurprisingly, the Internet (especially fellow Cowboys fans) loved Clanton’s “win some, lose some” attitude and her snazzy sign:

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, Clanton explained why she brought the feather boa-lined sign. 

“I decided to have some fun with it, this was my little get-back to him,” she said. “I thought this might show up on the jumbotron or TV broadcast and I knew (my ex) would be watching the game.”

Moral of the story? Don’t break up with someone before Christmas, via text. Your ex may go viral.

Liam Hemsworth Gets a Christmas Kiss from Fiancée Miley Cyrus — and a Simultaneous Snuggle from Mom

Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth don’t need mistletoe to share a smooch.

The Australian actor, 26, shared a lighthearted photo on Monday of him, Cyrus and his mother, Leonie. In the snap with his two top ladies, Cyrus planted a kiss on Hemsworth’s cheek while decked out in a festive patterned dress with a furry light blue coat, accessorized with a red ribbon in her hair. Meanwhile Leonie smiled as she rested her head on her son’s shoulder.

Hemsworth smirked and pointed at the camera in the photo he simply captioned, “Whatever.”

Cyrus, 24, and Hemsworth have been full of holiday cheer recently. Earlier this week, the couple celebrated Christmas early with the Cyrus family, including the singer’s mom and dad — Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus — and siblings Trace, Noah, Brandi and Braison (and some furry friends).

Cyrus wore her finest festive onesie as she and Liam posed for the family photo. “Cyrus fam Christmas in full swing,” Brandi captioned the Dec. 20 photo she shared to Instagram.

“Fun Christmas Party with my family!” Pataky captioned the Christmas Eve selfie. “Happy Christmas!”

And on the big day itself, Cyrus proudly showed off Liam’s homemade gift to her — a set of rainbow moon earrings.

Golden Globes’ Surprises & Snubs: Finding Dory Gets Lost, Tom Hanks Isn’t Flying High

The 2017 Golden Globe nominations are here, and although a few big names earned awards buzz leading up to the noms, they won’t have a shot at the prestigious award.

A few lesser known films, television shows and actors, however, pulled some out-of-left-field nods (congrats to Sing Street and Aaron Taylor-Johnson!).

Here’s who will have – and who should have had – a chance at a Golden Globe award on Jan. 8.

Films

Snub: Denzel Washington

Although the Oscar winner was recognized for his acting in Fences, his directing work for the 1950s-set drama failed to secure him a nomination or a best motion picture drama honor. While Damien Chazelle (La La Land) and Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) earned their predicted nods, Tom Ford’s work for Nocturnal Animals may be the surprise that knocked Washington out of the running.

Surprise: Deadpool

The superhero comedy starring Ryan Reynolds got lots of love from the Golden Globes, earning major nods in best motion picture – musical or comedy, and best performance by an actor in a motion picture – musical or comedy. The film took home the award for Best Comedy Sunday night at the Critics’ Choice Awards, but don’t expect Wade Wilson to walk away with an Oscar nod — the Globes honor more films by splitting drama and comedy/musical into separate categories.

Snub: Finding Dory

The Pixar sequel fans waited 13 years for just couldn’t find its way into the Golden Globe nominations. The forgetful yet lovable fish voiced by Ellen DeGeneres scored with reviewers and at the box office (it’s earned over $ 1 billion worldwide), but was edged out in a year full of strong contenders in the best animated feature film category, including Disney’s Moana as well as the lesser known French import My Life as a Zucchini.

Surprise: Sing Street

No one saw this Irish import sitting next to Deadpool and La La Land in the best motion picture – musical or comedy category. The Sundance darling written, co-produced and directed by John Carney (Once) features original music combined with popular songs that complement the movie’s 1980s setting. For Sing Street, the nomination is likely the prize.

Snub: Tom Hanks

The veteran actor already has eight Golden Globe nominations — with half as many wins — under his belt, but he won’t add another for Sully, in which he played pilot Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger during the 2009 “miracle on the Hudson.”

Snub: Silence

Martin Scorsese‘s 30-years-in-the-making passion project was completely shut out of the nominations despite predictions for best motion picture – drama and best director. Star Andrew Garfield scored a nomination, but it was for his role in Mel Gibson’s directorial return, Hacksaw Ridge.

Snub: The Birth of a Nation

Nothing. The period drama that ignited Hollywood with fiery hype before being engulfed in controversy (there was outrage directed at filmmaker Nate Parker over his involvement in a college rape trial) was completely dismissed from the nominations. The film fizzled at the box office as well, earning just $ 7.1 million in its opening weekend.

Television

Leading the pack this year was no surprise, The People v. O.J.: American Crime Story with five nominations, followed by Westworld and The Crown both with three.

It was impossible to ignore the boom of Netflix considering its two breakout shows, Stranger Things and The Crown, both of which received a nomination in best television series – drama. The Crown’s Claire Foy also landed a nom for best performance by an actress in a TV series – drama, as well as Winona Ryder for Stranger Things. However, Netflix’s darling Orange is the New Black was completely absent for the first time since its debut.

The 2017 Golden Globes will be held on Jan. 8, with Jimmy Fallon hosting the show.

Jennifer Lawrence Gets Real About Her Friendship With Amy Schumer In Vanity Fair

Despite already winning an Oscar, appearing in 20 movies by 26 and now earning $ 20 million per picture, Jennifer Lawrence shows no signs of stopping or slowing down for a second.

“I don’t like waking up with nothing to do or going to sleep without accomplishing anything,” the actress said in a revealing new interview with Vanity Fair. “That really depresses me.”

As the December cover star for the magazine, Lawrence opens up about what she would be doing if not for acting and the portrait she has of her dog (we’re with you, Jen). She also spoke about where her friendship with Amy Schumer stands and why she’s occasionally mean to fans (and Chris Pratt, but only in the mornings!).

If Lawrence didn’t make it big in Hollywood, she may have been doing something totally different. 

In a short video for the magazine, the “Passengers” star joked that she didn’t have a contingency plan if she didn’t make it in Hollywood, confessing instead she would probably be “laying in a ditch” or “stripping.” 

She has painting of her dog that her mom commissioned from a 14-year-old fan in New Zealand. 

“Fuck it. I am the person who has an acrylic painting of her dog,” Lawrence told VF.  “I am a psychotic dog mom in a way that I am genuinely embarrassed about. If I could put her inside me and give birth to her I would.” She only worries about having kids because they “would be incredibly jealous because I would still be way more attentive to Pippi than I would to them.” 

Yes, she’s still friends with Amy Schumer, despite the rumors

Lawrence ― who said she only lies when asked about “liking someone’s work”― got honest about her friendship with Schumer. Yes, she’s still shooting the movie she wrote with Schumer and yes, the two are still friends. 

“My brother asked me the other day, ‘Everybody online thinks you and Amy [Schumer] aren’t friends anymore,’” the actress said. “And I said, ‘Oh, really, because everything online is always true.’” 

JLaw has no tolerance for fans that invade her privacy. 

“You might think you know me, but when you approach me you’re a total stranger to me and I’m scared.” Lawrence said, adding that she gets “very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that.”

And word to the wise ― if you happen to be at a restaurant sitting next to the actress, don’t take a photo without asking unless you’re ready to be called out (and rightfully so!) 

“If I’m eating dinner and somebody comes up and a flash goes off from someone’s iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, ‘Oh, damn, I don’t want to do that.’ Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it,” she added. 

She loves Chris Pratt, but not during early call times.
