Young Royals Mark Princess Charlotte’s Birthday With New Portrait

TURNING TWO: The Duchess of Cambridge has gone behind the camera once again, photographing Princess Charlotte to mark her second birthday.
On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a photo of their daughter ahead of her birthday on May 2.
Photographed last month on the grounds of Anmer Hall, their Norfolk home, the princess is pictured wearing a yellow knit cardigan with a blue sheep print from John Lewis.
Kensington Palace released a message on Instagram: “Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.”

Kate Middleton took a series of portraits to mark Charlotte’s first birthday last year. In addition, she took the first official photos of Prince George in 2015 and since then has snapped images of her daughter in which she posed with a stuffed animal bear.
Last month, the duke and duchess joined Prince Harry and kicked off the London Marathon to support Heads Together, a campaign to raise awareness around mental illness, spearheaded by the young royals.
All 40,000 runners taking part in the annual race were given Heads Together headbands to raise awareness about mental health,

Artist Shares Poignant Portrait Series On #BeingBlackAndMuslim

A portrait series inspired by a Twitter hashtag on being black and Muslim is exploring the challenges many people face at the intersection of two marginalized identities. 

Visual artist Bobby Rogers published the powerful portrait series Wednesday night on his website and social media accounts. The project was inspired by #BeingBlackAndMuslim, a Twitter conversation initiated in 2014 by the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC). 

”My #BeingBlackandMuslim series was created to challenge the mainstream meaning of what it is to be ‘Muslim,’” Rogers, who identifies as Muslim, said in an email to The Huffington Post. “There is, and always has been, an erasure of Black Muslims from our historical teachings in America, just as there is an erasure of Black and Muslim cultures worldwide.”

There are more than 1.8 billion Muslims in the world, according to Pew Research Center. Muslims make up roughly 1 percent of the U.S. population, at more than three million.

American Muslims make up one of the most ethnically diverse faith communities in the country. A 2017 poll by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding found that a quarter of Muslims in the U.S. are black, with slightly smaller percentages of white, Asian and Arab Muslims.

Some of the earliest Muslims in the U.S. were African slaves, at least 10 to 15 percent of whom are believed to have been followers of Islam. But despite this long history, many black Muslims feel like their converging identities are overlooked in conversations about both racism and Islamophobia.

“The erasure of Black American Muslims undermines efforts towards developing a unified front in the face of our greatest threat,” wrote black Muslim activist Margari Hill in a 2015 HuffPost blog. “Groups working in the field must take into account the ways in which their anti-Islamophobia work alienates Black American Muslims.”

Anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. spiked after the September 11 attacks and has surged again in the wake of terrorist attacks at home and abroad. Much of the work being done to combat Islamophobia has centered around promoting tolerance of immigrant communities, Hill noted, which ignores the experiences of black Muslims “whose Muslim identity is homegrown.”

“With my series I want to show society that Black Muslims have always been an integral part of American history, as well as, Islamic history,” Rogers said.

The artist said his project aims to bring awareness to challenges black Muslims face “as a result of occupying the axes of two of the most marginalized groups in society.” But through exploring these challenges, Rogers said he hopes “for others to understand the true beauty & resilience of being Black and Muslim.”

“When we speak about Islam we should recognize Blackness as an equal and integral part of the conversation, and additionally, truthfully acknowledge the scope of Black Muslims throughout history.”

Portrait Jewels: Opulence and Intimacy from the Medici to the Romanovs

Portrait Jewels: Opulence and Intimacy from the Medici to the Romanovs


From the Renaissance to the end of the Belle Epoque, cameo, intaglio, and miniature portraits, prized as representations of eminent people or treasured as images of the beloved, have been enriched by jeweled frames in order to wear them or display them as precious objects. Rulers from the Medici to the Romanovs commissioned portrait jewels. Dynasties represented here include the Valois and Bourbon in France; Bavarian, Habsburg, and Hanoverian in Germany, Central Europe, and Spain; Tudor, Stuart, and Hanoverian in Britain; and the House of Orange-Nassau in the Netherlands. Men and women famous in politics, religion, history, literature, and the arts, including Queen Elizabeth I, Louis XIV, Catherine the Great, Voltaire and Madame du Chatelet, Popes Clement XII and Pius VII, and Lord Byron are featured in this exquisite miniature gallery. The author draws upon her knowledge of jewelry, painting, history, and literature to set the portrait jewels in the context of people’s lives, and shows how they were worn and what they meant to donors and recipients-tokens of allegiance to a ruler, of commitment between lovers, of affection within families.

Carolina Herrera to be Honored by National Portrait Gallery

PORTRAIT OF A LADY: Carolina Herrera now has reason beyond her new CH Carolina Herrera boutique to return to Washington, D.C. — she has been named one of the 2015 Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery honorees.
Herrera will be celebrated at the inaugural American Portrait gala on Nov. 15 along with fellow winners Aretha Franklin, Maya Lin, Henry “Hank” Aaron and U.S. Marine and Medal of Honor recipient Cpl. Kyle Carpenter. The event singles out individuals whose portraits are in the museum’s collection and each will receive The Portrait of a Nation Prize for their achievements in the arts, business, entertainment, military service or sports and their commitments to service. Herrera’s likeness was captured by the late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
The Venezuelan-born designer became a U.S. citizen in 2009.
The museum’s director Kim Sajet said, “Telling the history of this nation through the people who made it is core to our mission, and these honorees are today’s history makers. We are continually working to build the Portrait Gallery’s collection to reflect American achievement by highlighting those who make a difference, and these five people are exemplars in their fields.”
This fall’s gathering in the courtyard of the National Historic Landmark Building aims to raise $ 1
