Oliver Peoples Fetes ‘California as We See It’ With Lisa Eisner

A clutch of bespectacled Angelenos joined luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples on Thursday to fete the launch of the Assouline tome “California as We See It.” Cohosted by photographer and Los Angeles style arbiter Lisa Eisner, who penned the book’s foreword, the party drew Shaun Ross, Levi Dylan, William Peltz, Stormi Henley, Markus Molinari, Brad Elterman, Lorenza Izzo, Ivan Olita and Tasya van Ree, along with Oliver Peoples chief executive officer Rocco Basilico and creative director Giampiero Tagliaferri.
“Do you remember their first shop?” asked Eisner of the Sunset Plaza store a few blocks down the street. “It was right in the middle of all this history — George Hurrell’s studio, Billy Haines’ showroom, Adrian’s shop. Then there were all the rock clubs like The Whiskey a Go Go and The Roxy.” She also pointed out the pioneering retailer Charles Gallay — the first boutique in the U.S. to carry Azzedine Alaïa — and the location used for the apartment of Richard Gere’s character in “American Gigolo.”
“That’s sort of the area in which we played, and when I bought my first pair of Oliver Peoples in the Eighties, we were like this clique,” she said. Eisner has also photographed several campaigns

Shayne Oliver Presents Capsule Collection with Colmar

On the eve of Milan Fashion Week, performance apparel company Colmar unveiled its collaboration with American designer Shayne Oliver with a party filled with fake snow, held Tuesday night at the Arco Della Pace venue here.
The collaboration between Oliver and Colmar falls under the sportswear company’s A.G.E. project, which stands for Advanced Garment Exploration. The company plans to conscript designers and other creative types to give its heritage with a contemporary take.
Oliver’s capsule collection comprises three different drops. While the first delivery — priced at between 500 euros and 2,200 euros — is already available at six locations worldwide including Browns in London, I.T. in Hong Kong, New York’s Totokaelo, Gr8 in Tokyo, Milan’s Excelsior and online at Ssense, the second drop is slated to hit retail in December. Colmar chief executive officer Giulio Colombo said a third capsule is expected for fall 2019.
“I do like to be subversive, … I do think that people are spending a lot of money on really basic, normal clothes and I wanted to add a bit of design,” said Oliver. And so he did, giving Colmar’s signature outerwear pieces exaggerated proportions, at times layering them or transforming them into capes and trimmed with

John Oliver Has The Answer To Britain’s Brexit Prayers: Lord Buckethead!

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s gamble failed spectacularly when her party lost its majority in parliament during last week’s snap election. The move also threatened to send the upcoming Brexit negotiations into chaos. 

On Sunday night, John Oliver explained just how difficult those negotiations would be even in ideal circumstances. 

But the “Last Week Tonight” host also came up with an idea that could make the process more entertaining: Lord Buckethead. The costumed character/space lord, who was one of May’s opponents, won 249 votes and headlines around the world.  

Oliver urged May to name Lord Buckethead as the new Brexit minister to handle negotiations with Brussels.

“Is it an absurd idea? Yes!” Oliver admitted. “But it would not even be close to the stupidest thing you’ve ever done.”

John Oliver Warns This Isn’t The End Of The Line For Trump

Those who believe that the growing scandals around President Donald Trump could force him out of office may be in for a big disappointment. 

John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” reminded viewers on Sunday that Trump has survived all of the other controversies that have come his way. 

Why would this be the end of the line for him?” Oliver asked. “Trump has seemed to reach the end of the line on multiple occasions, only for nothing to happen.”

Oliver pointed to various scandals from the campaign, including Trump’s hesitation to disavow former KKK leader David Duke, the time he “bullied a Gold Star family” and the “Access Hollywood” tape as evidence.  

“We all thought the next stop on that bus was ― you guessed it ― the end of the fucking line,” Oliver said. “But it seems like when it comes to President Trump, he’s always approaching the end of the line but it never seems to come. As if for him, and him alone, the end of the line is drawn by M.C. Fucking Escher.” 

Oliver dubbed the latest scandal involving Trump revealing code-word classified information to Russian officials in the Oval Office as “Stupid Watergate,” and urged viewers not to ignore everything else that was going on, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ move to undo criminal justice reforms, the administration’s proposed cuts to Medicaid and a possible plan to end key Obamacare subsidies

Jessica Alba, Rebecca Gayheart Attend Oliver Peoples’ 30th-Anniversary Bash

It’s been 30 years since Oliver Peoples burst onto the California eyewear scene, and the Los Angeles-based luxury brand, now owned by Luxottica, celebrated the milestone with a party at Chateau Marmont’s Bungalow One last weekend that drew Jessica Alba, Rebecca Gayheart and Brandon Thomas Lee, plus the faces of its latest campaign lensed by Peter Lindbergh, Levi Dylan and Monika Jagaciak.
“When conceptualizing the campaign and story surrounding this milestone year for Oliver Peoples, my mind went back to the beginning. When Oliver Peoples was founded in 1987, the brand challenged the ostentatious eyewear trends of the era with its decidedly classic aesthetic. This was around the same time Peter Lindbergh was rising on the scene and changing fashion’s view of beauty through his raw and minimalist photography. I’ve been a fan of Peter’s work since those early years and jumped at the chance to work with him for Oliver Peoples’ 30th anniversary campaign,” said OP creative director Giampiero Tagliaferri.
Guests got a preview of the black-and-white campaign images, which are set to break this week.
“Peter has the magic touch that you experience through the whole process, from his image selection to watching him work on set, he is truly one

John Oliver Calls ‘Turbo Bulls**t’ On Trump’s Comey Claims

John Oliver isn’t buying it.

The “Last Week Tonight” host doesn’t believe President Donald Trump’s claims that former FBI director James Comey said that Trump himself wasn’t under investigation three times. 

“I call bullshit,” Oliver said on Sunday night. “I call turbo bullshit on that. There is no way those conversations went down in that manner.” 

The president is somehow “both a terrible and an amazing liar, and I don’t know how that’s physically possible,” Oliver said.

Oliver also slammed the “genuinely weird” termination letter as well as the following week of “confusing and contradicting” explanations that were ultimately blown up by Trump’s interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Thursday. 

That was when Trump admitted he was going to can Comey, no matter what.

“Trump is so desperate to appear dominant he will rush to take the credit for anything no matter how bad it is,” Oliver said, adding:

“If you wanted him to confess to murder, all a lawyer would have to say is ‘Your honor, the killer could not possibly have been Donald Trump. It must have been someone much stronger and smarter with a much hotter daughter,’ and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, ‘I did it! It was me! Lock me up! Lock me up! Lock me up!’”

John Oliver Rallies ‘Time-Wasters And Troublemakers’ To Fight The FCC

John Oliver is calling on everyone who’s ever wasted time on the Internet ― even trolls ― to unite for a common cause: net neutrality.

On Sunday, the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” explained the issue and shared how important it was for everyone who uses the Internet.

Since the Trump administration hasn’t made it easy to comment on the topic, Oliver bought the website GoFCCYourself.com, which redirects to the correct page at the FCC. He then urged everyone to devote a small amount of effort to the issue.  

“Yes, I’m talking to you, everyone who posted ‘May the 4th be with you’ for Star Wars Day this and and every fucking year. And I’m talking to you, everyone who posted on Facebook about 10 concerts you’ve seen and one you didn’t. And to you, everyone who did it ironically and added a clever joke twist because ― and this is important ― you are exactly as bad.” 

Oliver has taken on net neutrality before; that time he crashed the FCC’s servers

The Oliver Effect may be happening again. While the FCC’s main page remained online, the page he directed traffic to went down early Monday. The effort also caused #GoFCCYourself to trend on Twitter.

John Oliver Warns France: ‘Don’t ‘F**k Up’ And Elect A French Trump

John Oliver wants Americans to care about next week’s election in France because the fate of Europe may hang in the balance.

“That’s right,” Oliver said on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight.” “The fate of Europe rests in the hands of a country that looks at snails and says, ‘I have got to get you in my mouth.’”

Oliver profiled several of the candidates, including Marine Le Pen, head of the right-wing National Front and a candidate some have compared to President Donald Trump

“She is the main reason you should be invested in this election,” Oliver told his U.S. audience. 

Like Trump, Le Pen is running on an anti-immigration platform. Oliver showed a clip of her comparing immigrants to people who move into your home, remove the wallpaper, “steal your wallet and brutalize your wife.”

“Hold on,” Oliver said. “Brutalizing your wife and stealing your wallet, again, that’s just boilerplate racism. But ‘people are coming to take my wallpaper’ is something a crazy person says. No one wants your wallpaper, you catastrophically weird person.” 

Oliver also compared Le Pen to Trump:  

“A potentially destabilizing populist campaigning on anti-immigrant rhetoric who rages against the elites despite having a powerful father and inherited wealth even as all the experts reassure us that there is no way this could possibly happen.”

Oliver then made a special appeal to the people of France.

John Oliver Wants To Make You Finally Care About Gerrymandering

Gerrymandering might not be the most exciting topic in politics, but John Oliver pointed out during Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” that it’s one of the most important. 

“Gerrymandering has become a very precise science,” Oliver said about the practice of redrawing district boundaries so one party has a better chance of winning. “Interestingly, it is one of the few remaining types of science in which the Republican Party currently believes.” 

While the GOP has certainly benefitted most in recent years, Oliver noted that the Democrats have been pretty good at gerrymandering at times.

Oliver said neither party should be allowed to “dilute our votes” by redrawing district maps.

“Everyone, every one of us, should get an equal chance to make a bad decision which fucks things up for everybody else,” he said.

John Oliver Goes Off On America’s Most Absurd Marijuana Laws

John Oliver returned on Sunday after a brief hiatus with a detailed story about America’s most counter-productive and antiquated marijuana laws. 

In addition to detailing how the U.S. tax code screws marijuana businesses that operate legally within their states, Oliver showed how federal regulations put individuals who were complying with state laws at risk. 

“If you have marijuana right now, even if you are acting completely legally according to your state, you may still be in serious jeopardy,” Oliver said. The “Last Week Tonight” host then went through numerous examples of how federal law interfered with people who had medical marijuana prescriptions to treat everything from epileptic seizures to PTSD. 

“I know that some people will say, well hold on, the medical efficacy of marijuana needs a lot more study, and that is true,” Oliver said. “The problem is, it’s very difficult to do that because federal laws are standing in the way.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Donald Trump’s administration have hinted that the federal government may crack down on states that have legalized recreational marijuana use. 

“I don’t think America is going to be a better place when people of all ages, and particularly young people, are smoking pot,” Sessions told reporters in February. “I believe it’s an unhealthy practice, and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago, and we’re seeing real violence around that.”

John Oliver Perfectly Explains Trump’s ‘Weird’ Relationship With Putin

President Donald Trump has repeatedly shown admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, even as his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia have come under scrutiny. 

“There is no hard proof yet of direct links between Trump himself and Russia,” John Oliver pointed out on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday. “But he does have a noticeably soft spot for both the country and its leader.”

Oliver then played a montage of clips showing Trump saying how good it would be to get along with Russia.

“It’s a bit weird,” Oliver said. “You’ve been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than you have to Meryl Streep.”

Oliver spent much of the segment looking at how Putin treats his enemies, launched a vigorous defense of the United States and then created a warning for Trump ― in the form of a techno song.

John Oliver Has A Profanity-Filled Message For Paris Attackers

John Oliver has an unequivocal message for those responsible for the terror attacks that killed more than 130 people in Paris on Friday: F**k you. 

Oliver started Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” with a few words about the deadly assaults.

“There are a few things we can say for certain,” Oliver said before telling the audience he was about to unleash a “moment of premium cable profanity.”

“First, as of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic fucking arseholes, unconscionable flaming arseholes; possibly working with other fucking arseholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure arseholery,” Oliver said. “Second, and this goes almost without saying, fuck these arseholes, fuck them — if I may say – sideways.”

Oliver also offered some words of support for the people impacted by the tragedy.

“Nothing about what these arseholes are trying to do is going to work. France is going to endure,” he said.

Oliver told “CBS This Morning” on Friday that he has doesn’t care about Trump “in any capacity.”

John Oliver Says It’s Time To End Discrimination Against Gays

John Oliver says it’s time for the federal government to finish the job when it comes to gay rights

Speaking on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver pointed out that while gay couples now have the right to get married, they don’t have many other rights in much of the nation.

In some cases, they have no rights at all. 

Now Oliver is calling on the feds to extend basic civil rights protections to the gay community. 

“States have a checkered history when it comes to civil rights,” Oliver said. “Just look at Arkansas right now. Not only do they not have any anti-discrimination ordinances, earlier this year they actually passed an anti-anti-discrimination ordinance that prevents any city or county from extending civil rights protections to gay people.”

As Oliver pointed out, that’s the opposite of progress.

“It would be like if Apple suddenly introduced the iPhone 7 and it was a flip phone,” he said. “That’s still not as dumb as the Apple Watch… but it’s dumb.”

John Oliver Has An Unforgettable New Version Of The ’50 States’ Song

John Oliver has a new version of the “50 States Song,” sung by adorable schoolchildren who want to know — quite explicitly — why Washington, D.C.,  is getting the shaft. 

On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver took a look at the long and strange history of our capital city’s rights and representation at the federal level. Or, more accurately, lack thereof. 

Congress has final say over the city’s rules, regulations and budget and has blocked or interfered with everything from marijuana legalization to needle exchanges. While Washington does has a representative — Eleanor Holmes Norton – she’s not actually allowed to vote on key issues.

Or as Oliver said, “she basically has pretend power,” like a child watching “Dora the Explorer.” 

“The people of D.C. clearly deserve a greater voice in their own affairs, and they’ve actually come tantalizingly close to getting a voting representative in Congress,” Oliver said. “In 2009, a bill to give D.C. a vote was introduced in the Senate, and the Senate did the most dickish thing imaginable: passing it, but with a little addition.” 

That addition was an amendment that would have repealed all gun-control laws in the city. As a result, the bill was dropped, and D.C. still doesn’t have a vote. 

Now, Oliver is calling for full statehood for Washington, D.C., and his plea comes in the form of an unforgettable tune. 

Check it out in the clip above.

Bill Hudson, the estranged father of actors Oliver and Kate Hudson, is firing back after his son’s scathing Instagram post with a seething message of his own.

“I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own,” Hudson said in an interview with The Daily Mail.

“I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name,” he continued. “They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver’s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.”

The comments come in response to an Instagram post by Oliver Hudson that went viral. The photo, reportedly taken more than 30 years ago, featured the actor and his sister as kids with Bill, and was posted with the caption, “Happy abandonment day… @katehudson.”

Hudson also slammed his ex-wife Goldie Hawn, who he says “poisoned” the kids against him, and expressed dismay at his daughter Kate’s Father’s Day post, which was a picture of her with Kurt Russell, Hawn’s longtime partner. The caption on the post read, “Pa, just simply….. Thank you Happy Fathers Day I love you to the moon and back.”

“It was an intimate shot and, as her father, I found it inappropriate and unsettling,” Hudson said. “I’ll leave it at that.”

The Huffington Post has reached out to representatives for Bill, Kate and Oliver Hudson and will update this post if and when a comment is received.

Blondie And ‘Songify The News’ Auto-Tune Joe Biden, John Oliver And Elizabeth Warren

From the minds of The Gregory Brothers and the voicebox of Debbie Harry comes another auto-tuned mashup of the news.

“Naked Men” is the catchy song that comes from mixing a Joe Biden speech, Elizabeth Warren’s appearance on Rachel Maddow, John Oliver’s chat with Edward Snowden and more, as seen in the video above. As the YouTube description warns, “Side effects may include wailing, rocking, and clothes being blown off by solar winds.”

They forgot to mention that it’s totally going to get stuck in your head.

John Oliver & Michael Bolton Serenade The IRS, ‘The Anus Of Our Country’

Why does everyone hate the IRS? On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver said it’s because the agency combines two of the things we hate most: “someone taking our money and math.”

However, Oliver argued that our anger is misdirected because the IRS “does a difficult, thankless, almost dangerously boring job,” and GOP cuts to the agency’s budget is making their task even more difficult.

So if you’ve got a problem with how much you pay in taxes, don’t blame the IRS. Blame Congress.

“The fact is, blaming the IRS because you hate paying your taxes is a bit like slapping your checkout clerk because the price of eggs has gone up,” Oliver said. “It’s not her fault — she’s just trying to help you get out of the store.”

Oliver said it’s time to change the way we think about the IRS, even if no one likes the agency.

“Not everything that’s important is likable,” Oliver said. “Think of our government as a body. The IRS is the anus: It’s nobody’s favorite part, but you need that thing working properly or everything goes to shit real quick.”

To help win a little sympathy for the beleaguered agency, Oliver brought in Michael Bolton to sing “if not a love song, a song of reluctant support for their appropriate funding.”

Check out the clip above to see what is perhaps the only time you’ll ever hear Bolton croon an ode that includes the word “anus.”

Jack Huston to Collaborate With Oliver Peoples

JACK OF ALL TRADES: Jack Huston is adding a new title to his CV: eyewear designer. The British actor serves as the face of Oliver Peoples, and for spring will increase his involvement by codesigning a pair of frames. “I’m a sunglass fanatic,” Huston told WWD, calling from set in Italy, where he is filming the upcoming “Ben-Hur” remake. “They approached me about collaborating on a frame and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? That sounds awesome.’”
The one-off style, which is named after the actor, features a thick acetate frame with three pin detailing along the front temples, and will be available as both a sunglass and optical frame. The frames will be available in four colors: Ebonywood, Raintree, which is a light brown, Cocobolo — which is a reddish-brown — and black. The Ebonywood and Raintree glasses will feature a new style of lenses for the brand: the VFX Plus, a polarized glass lens that features rare earth materials and infrared coating, which aims to keep eyes cool and less strained than with typical lenses. The Jack Huston sunglass frame, which retails for $ 475, will be available for purchase at Oliver Peoples boutiques and additional select stores beginning later

John Oliver Explains How America’s Neglected Infrastructure Is Like A Lego Set

If you weren’t aware that U.S. roads, bridges and dams are in serious state of disrepair, allow John Oliver to put it plainly: “We aren’t just flirting with disaster, we’re rounding third base and asking if disaster has any condoms.”

On Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver broke down the sorry state of America’s neglected infrastructure, including “hold your breath” bridges, killer potholes, a severe lack of inspectors and potential floods from our half-century old dams.

“Much like most Botox recipients and competitive cloggers, the average dam is 52 years old and has something deeply broken inside of it,” said Oliver.

As Oliver explains, The White House is counting on the closure of corporate tax loopholes, no one wants to raise the gas tax and House Speaker John Boehner has his own ideas about fixing the problem which involves two years of not doing anything followed by ignoring Oliver’s phone calls, emails and Vines.

During a montage of politicians cutting ribbons with oversized scissors, Oliver also points out that repairing infrastructure isn’t as “sexy” as building anew, and backs it up with the perfect Legos analogy.

“Infrastructure is like Legos,” he said. “Building is fun, destroying is fun, but a Lego maintenance set would be the most boring fucking toy in the world.”

To top it off, Oliver presents a trailer for a new kind of summer blockbuster movie, one that’s more about fixing cracks and less about explosions.

John Oliver Blasts UK’s Labour Party For Targeting Women Voters With ‘Barbie Bus’

Pet the pretty princess pony!

With a U.K. election in May, political parties are battling over female voters. The Conservative Party has been accused of generally ignoring women voters, giving the Labour Party an opportunity to gain their support, which they should be able to do easily, as long as they don’t decide to campaign for women voters with a patronizing pink bus. They did? Oh …

On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver took the Labour Party to task for the embarrassing political maneuver, and the equally embarrassing attempts to cover up the political fallout that ensued.

“It is a little insulting that you’re trying to appeal to women adult voters the same way that Mattel attempts to appeal to 8-year-olds,” said Oliver. “And at least Barbie’s pink bus had the good sense to unfold into a sweet hot tub and party den combo.”

Oliver offered the Labour Party a commercial of his own that he believes will fix the political damage done by what’s being called the “Barbie bus.”

Why, yes, it does involve a pretty princess pony!

“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” airs Sunday at 11:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

John Oliver Calls Out Sugar Industry, Demands They #ShowUsYourPeanuts

How much sugar are you eating? Odds are you don’t know, and as John Oliver pointed out Sunday on “Last Week Tonight,” it’s because food makers are doing their best to make sure you never find out.

For example, most cranberry products are packed with sugar, and for good reason.

“Cranberries are, I think we can all agree, nature’s most disgusting berry. Cranberries taste like cherries who hate you,” Oliver said. “Cranberries taste like what a raspberry drinks before its colonoscopy — and the industry knows it.”

That, he said, is why even cranberry companies are fighting against adding labels that would disclose added sugars.

“Which is tantamount to begging, ‘Please don’t make us tell everyone how much sugar we dump on our garbage bog-berry,'” Oliver said.

It’s not just the cranberry industry, either. Most food and beverage makers are fighting the proposed inclusion of an added sugars label on food packages. And, if there is a label, they don’t want sugars listed in teaspoons. They want it in grams, which Oliver says is because no one knows what a gram is.

So he’s offering a better solution.

“We are proposing, in the spirit of Halloween, that product manufacturers express their sugar content in the form of candy,” Oliver said. “Specifically, circus peanuts, the most disgusting of all the candies. They taste like an elephant ejaculated into a packet of Splenda.”

Since there are more than 5 grams of sugar in each circus peanut, Oliver said food makers should put a picture of one circus peanut on the front of the package for every 5 grams of sugar in the product.

“Do it, food makers. Expose your peanuts to the world. Because if you’re going to shove your peanuts in our mouths, the very least you can do is tell us what we’re swallowing.”

Oliver called on viewers to support this idea by tweeting food makers with the hashtag #ShowUsYourPeanuts.

John Oliver Destroys Pumpkin Spice Lattes, The ‘Coffee That Tastes Like A Candle’

It’s that time of year: Leaves are changing, Halloween decorations are on display, and cable knit sweaters are everywhere. But most importantly, the all-famous Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at your local Starbucks.

And according to John Oliver, everyone’s drinking this “coffee that tastes like a candle” like there’s no tomorrow — and he finds it disgusting.

Americans love their pumpkin products so much that in 2012 they ate just over five pounds of pumpkin per person, Oliver pointed out on a “Last Week Tonight” web exclusive posted Sunday. And the fact there is no actual pumpkin in Pumpkin Spice Lattes doesn’t stop consumers from imbibing.

It’s all a trick, a horrified Oliver says in his rant.

“We tolerate pumpkin spice because we like the Fall,” explains Oliver. “It’s the best season because you get to stop thinking about how weird your legs look in shorts.”

Do you agree with Oliver’s assertion that pumpkin spice is just “eggnog for morning people,” and that we should think of a better Fall-related flavor, preferably one that doesn’t taste like a candle actually tastes? (“Don’t ask me how I know that,” Oliver says.) Let us know in the comments below!
