Fashion Trust Arabia Supports Local Talent with New Prize Initiative

LONDON — As the Arab fashion industry continues to gain ground, a new charitable venture, Fashion Trust Arabia, is being launched and it’s spearheading a new prize initiative to support local design talent through mentorship and funding.
The initiative, which follows on the footsteps of the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Trust, will be chaired by Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser and co-chaired by Sheikha al- Mayassa Bint Hamad Al- Thani and Tania Fares, founder of the Fashion Trust in the U.K.
A wide range of local and international business and fashion leaders are said to participate in the new venture, joining its executive committee or judging panel and mentoring participating designers. Fashion Trust Arabia is yet to announce its committee members.
The launch of the prize aims to coincide with the increased interest in the growth potential of the region’s fashion industry, to support local talent that has so far been operating under-the-radar and spark investment opportunities.
Earlier this year, the Arab Fashion Council – which is now headquartered in Saudi Arabia – also announced a partnership with the British Fashion Council and hosted the first Arab Fashion Week in Riyadh, in a bid to develop a sustainable fashion infrastructure across the Arab world and create new revenue

Jennifer Lawrence Supports Ex and ‘Very Good Friend’ Darren Aronofsky at N.Y.C. Event

Jennifer Lawrence and director Darren Aronofsky are amicable exes.

The former couple split in the fall after over a year of dating, but they were all smiles posing together at the BAM Gala in New York City on Wednesday.

The reunion didn’t stop there: according to E! News, the 27-year-old actress introduced Aronofsky, an honoree of the night.

“I am thrilled to be here tonight to present this honor to my very good friend, Darren Aronofsky,” she said.

Lawrence wore white for the event, pairing a dress with a structured bodice that fell below her knees with a pair of strappy silver heels and clutch. She wore her blonde locks in loose waves. Meanwhile, Aronofsky kept things simple in a navy suit with a black button-up and matching tie.

Lawrence and Aronofsky made their public debut for the Venice Film Festival photocall of their film mother! The pair began dating in September 2016 shortly after the movie’s production and their relationship blossomed despite their 22-year age difference.

She first talked about their romance after a year of staying mum in an interview with Vogue. Lawrence previously shared that she was immediately drawn to the director after meeting on the set of the film.

“We had energy,” she said. “I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me. I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.”

After admitting she still loves Aronofsky in February, Lawrence explained on WTF with Marc Maron that she’s on good terms with all her former beaus.

“I’m friends with all my exes, actually,” she said. “For the most part, yeah, I have a theory: I think it’s because I’m blunt. I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt.”

She continued, “Everybody always knows how you feel at all times and there’s no lying, it’s just honesty. Everybody’s a good guy to each other. All my boyfriends have been wonderful. Nick was a great boyfriend.”

Prince Harry at the Finish Line! The Royal Groom-to-Be Supports Runners at the London Marathon

Prince Harry was the No. 1 cheerleader at Sunday’s London Marathon.

There to show his support, Harry cheered on runners before handing out prizes to the winners of the elite men, women, wheelchair and IPC races.

He also had a chance to chat with members of the marathon’s staff, as well as the on-site first aid team from St. John Ambulance.

Harry attended the marathon as part of his role as patron for the London Marathon Charitable Trust. It’s his third year in a row attending the annual event, though this time, he did it so solo — in 2017, Harry had brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton by his side.

Come on down, Liam Hemsworth — to studio 8H!

The Aussie actor made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend to support fiancée Miley Cyrus, who was the musical guest alongside host Larry David.

During a Price Is Right sketch, Cyrus played an audience member paired with celebrity contestant Chris Hemsworth, portrayed by castmember Alex Moffat.

Cyrus told the faux-elder sibling of her beau, “You’re really cute.”

“Yeah, sorry love, I’m married,” replied Moffat, in character as the actor.

Asked Cyrus in return, “Do you have a brother?”

Later, Hemsworth joined Cyrus and Moffat onstage after the latter said he “phoned a friend.” Together, the trio bid “150 crocodile teeth” to try to make it to the wheel.

And Cyrus has been spotted wearing a sparkly band on her ring finger since July 2016.

Donna Karan Supports – And then Pulls Support – of Harvey Weinstein

Donna Karan has stepped into the Harvey Weinstein controversy – and G-III Apparel Group, parent company of the DKNY and Donna Karan brands, is feeling the backlash.
Karan set off a firestorm Monday night when she came out in support of her friend Harvey Weinstein. At a Cinemoi Fashion Film Awards event in Hollywood, she told the Daily Mail that sexually harassed women may be “asking for it” by dressing seductively.
“You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble,” she told the Daily Mail in a red carpet interview.
Within four hours, Karan’s publilcists were back pedaling, people were threatening to boycott Donna Karan, and PR Consulting issued a statement from Karan, which read:  “Last night, I was honored at the Cinemoi Fashion Film Awards in Hollywood and while answering a question on the red carpet, I made a statement that unfortunately is not representative of how I feel or what I believe. I have spent my life championing women. My life has been dedicated to dressing and addressing the needs of women, empowering them and promoting equal

Leonardo DiCaprio Goes Incognito as He Supports Friend Sean Penn at Haiti Benefit

Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted at a benefit for Haiti Takes Root — a 10-year long initiative dedicated to the reforestation and development of Haiti — alongside Sean Penn, who co-hosted the event at Sotheby’s New York on Friday.

Penn, 56, is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of J/P Haitian Relief Organization, the non-profit that put on the event, as well as ambassador-at-large for Haiti. The Revenant star has turned up to support Penn’s efforts for Haiti before, and he attended Penn’s Haiti Rising Gala in January, one day before the Golden Globes, which also brought out Diane Kruger and Nick Jonas.

In other activist efforts, DiCaprio, 42, met with indigenous leaders and was spotted participating in the Climate March last weekend in Washington D.C.

In a CNN video, DiCaprio stayed discreet in a cap and sunglasses, but his messaging was loud and clear: “Climate Change Is Real,” he wrote on a small sign in red and green.

The actor had joined participants who were objecting President Trump‘s rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things, according to the Associated Press. Organizers estimate 300 other protest marches will gathered thousands of people across the country last Saturday.

‘United We Feed’ Photo Series Supports All Moms — However They Nourish Their Children

Photographer and mom of two Caitlin Domanico hopes her latest project will provide support for all parents navigating the world of pumping, nursing and bottle feeding.

“United We Feed” is a series of photos Domanico took of clients, friends, and acquaintances nourishing their babies in the manner that is best for their individual families. For many of the women, that’s breastfeeding. For others, it’s pumping and bottle feeding. And for some, it’s tube feeding.

“Everybody’s journey is so different,” the photographer told The Huffington Post. “I love being able to tell their story and hopefully chisel away at that silly term ‘Mommy Wars’ with one photograph at a time by showing that we are all humans with a unifying goal in mind — to love our little babies with all of our soul.”

Domanico drew inspiration for the series from her own experiences as a breastfeeding mom. While her oldest daughter breastfed for six months and then drank pumped milk and formula from a bottle, her younger daughter nursed exclusively for 18 months because she refused to drink from bottles and often threw fits. “I have talked endlessly to family and friends about my daughters and how I was feeding them, why I was feeding them that way, and how I felt about it,” the mom recalled, adding “I sought support from women when I felt unsure, scared, proud, guilty, and determined.”

united we feed

The other moms in her life were also sources of inspiration. “I have offered support and suggestions, mailed tea to women, cheered when I received a text of a selfie of a woman whose baby just latched, and hugged them as I agreed with them that it was absolutely okay to choose formula feeding/pumping, or to be tube-feeding because it was medically necessary,” she recalled.

“I love when I am able to give to other women, to listen, to hug them, to offer encouragement, support, and remind them that they are rocking the role of mom,” she continued. “Because at the end of the day, each woman was making a decision to love and nourish their baby no matter what the method of delivery may be.”

The response to “United We Feed” has been “incredible” and “humbling,” Domanico said, noting that she’s received countless messages from mothers wishing to thank her for representing their experiences or even requesting own photo shoots. Recently, the photographer was moved when she photographed a lesbian couple feeding their new baby. After one mom pumped and prepared the bottle, her wife fed the baby. Another powerful experience was capturing a mom whose baby with Down syndrome was finally gaining weight after months of difficulty taking a bottle.

Ultimately, Domanico aspires to host a gallery of images in the Philadelphia area where her studio is located. She also dreams of publishing a book that celebrates the variety of parenting decisions and experiences — in different cultures across the U.S. and eventually, around the world.

Through her messages of support, the mom hopes to break down some of the feelings of “mommy guilt” that stem from breastfeeding and bottle feeding. “It can lead to defensive and competitive behavior from women, who at the end of the day all have the same goal in mind- to love and nourish their precious and tiny babies!” she said.

“It is through this project I envision uniting mothers across all walks of life, while simultaneously teaching my daughters that other women are not the enemy,” she added. “We owe it to each other to foster a community that is deeply rooted in respect for one another, after all, motherhood is amazing. It is filled with joy, love, and can be so incredibly gratifying.”

Kim Kardashian Supports Kylie Jenner’s Decision To Get Lip Fillers

Kim Kardashian is showing her support for her younger sister Kylie Jenner.

Days after Jenner revealed she has temporary lip fillers, Kardashian told “Access Hollywood” she stands by her sister’s decision.

“I know people are saying she’s 17 years old, but it’s been an insecurity of hers for years,” Kardashian said. “At 10 and 11 years old she would always say, ‘Kimmy, how come my lips aren’t as big as your guys?’ It’s something that she always was insecure about. So if it’s gonna make her feel better about herself, I’m all for it.”

In the episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” in which the fillers are discussed, Kardashian sister Khloe also stood by Jenner.

“Kylie decided to plump her lips. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I think if you’ve done something, though, it is right to cop up to it,” she said.
