Nicole Miller Talks Hamptons Happening Event, New Rosé, Candace Bushnell’s ‘Sex and the City’-inspired Book

RAISE A GLASS: Nicole Miller will be honored by the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation at the 15th annual Hamptons Happening on July 13.
As this year’s fashion honoree, Miller will be joined at the cancer research benefit by chef honoree Lidia Bastianich, business honoree Antonella Bertello and restaurateur honoree Ian Duke. Miller first teamed with the SWCRF in 2014 to launch the Collaborating for a Cure Ladies Luncheon and she staged a fashion show. In the years that followed, other designers have done the same, helping to raise a total of more than $ 600,000 for cancer research. Miller said of the SWCRF, “They’re big on genetic research and the future of cancer care.”
This summer’s SWCRF event will feature a “Tour de Cuisine” theme with gourmet food, wine and spirit tastings. Miller has been going to the Hamptons on a consistent basis for more than 20 years, which is when she and her husband first bought a house there. She will be hosting her own East End events this summer.
Her summer entertaining will include bottles of her new signature rosé. “I love sipping rosé in the summer. The opportunity just came up. What’s great about it is it’s from Bordeaux; it’s

Virgil Abloh Talks Work, Life — but Not Politics

CHICAGO — “Incredible” is how Virgil Abloh described being recognized by his hometown with his first major retrospective, “Figures of Speech,” opening June 10 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
“I think within the narrative, within the work and the show is a little bit like, it’s a little bit sort of like, reaffirming these full circles like happen in places,” said Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton men’s wear and founder of Off-White during a sit-down interview Thursday morning at the new NikeLab Chicago Re-Creation Center, at 673 North Michigan Avenue.
“We’re in Chicago, it’s usually not a place that has like — it’s known for its art and it’s known for its architecture and design history,” said Abloh. “I think in terms of contemporary art that emanates, me as a contemporary artist emanated around the world to sort of do certain things, it’s sort of a full circle to have them curate a show and recognize that work.”
It was a full-circle connection with Michigan Avenue, as well — this is where his dream to work in fashion began, when he and pal Kanye West visited the Vuitton store just a few blocks away.
“It was this street,” Abloh said.

CEO Talks: Bonobos’ Micky Onvural Takes Unique Marketing Approach to C-suite

Micky Onvural has walked an unconventional path to the top post at Bonobos. She spent most of her career in marketing at brands such as Kellogg’s, eBay and Trulia. But Bonobos founder Andy Dunn saw something in the U.K. native that made him tap her in 2016 to serve as chief marketing officer for the men’s wear brand he founded in 2007. With the company’s acquisition by Walmart Inc. in 2017 and Dunn’s new role as head of digital brands for the mega-retailer, Onvural stepped up to chief executive officer.
Here, the mother of three talks about how her background has helped Bonobos evolve, particularly in terms of its out-of-the-box marketing campaigns; her management style, and how she balances work and family.
WWD: Tell me about your background and how long you’ve been at Bonobos.
Micky Onvural: I started my career at L’Oréal in the U.K., running hair coloring brands. From there I went to Kellogg’s and did kids’ cereal. Then I went to eBay — none of this had anything to do with running a men’s wear brand — and ran global brands for them in the U.K. In 2004, I moved to the U.S. and ran global brands for eBay on

Gloria Steinem Talks About the Benefits of ‘Women Together’

Gloria Steinem talked passionately about what’s most important now at Eileen Fisher’s “Women Together” initiative Friday.
Steinem was the featured speaker at a full-day program intended to empower women to find their voices and connect with one another. The ticketed event, with 90 attendees, was also live-streamed before an audience of 235 people. It took place at the Eileen Fisher Learning Lab in Irvington, N.Y.
“I believe a collective energy emerges when women connect with other women,” said Eileen Fisher, founder and chairman of her brand. “Our Women Together events offer meaningful opportunities for women to connect more deeply — with themselves and one another.” She said her goal is to do these events once a month.
Titled “Revolution From Within,” the event was filled with women from several generations sitting in talking circles. The day also featured writer Jamia Wilson and international 5Rhythms movement leader Amber Ryan.
Steinem, who has been leading women in the movement for decades, was asked by Antoinette Klatzky, executive director and co-creator of the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute, what’s important in this moment about women coming together.
“Well, that you do it,” said Steinem. “We are communal animals as human beings. We can’t function all by ourselves. There’s a

Levi’s VP of Global Innovation Talks Sustainability, Upsides of Hemp

LIVING THE BRAND: Levi’s vice president of global innovation Paul Dillinger spoke quickly and passionately about how the fashion industry can take steps to become more sustainable, closing out the two-day Sustainable Business and Design Conference on Thursday night at F.I.T.
Wearing a white cottonized hemp jacket from the Levi’s Wellthread x Outerknown spring/summer collection, he told attendees that by touching it they would understand the possibilities of making the fabric into something lovely and soft (and not scratchy). The company’s first foray into the use of a new form of “cottonized hemp” denim — hemp that’s been altered to feel just like cotton, Dillinger’s embroidered trucker jacket has removable metal hardware for recyclability.
He also highlighted the company’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. Dillinger stressed the need to embrace circular industrial systems to reduce pollution rather than because “you want an excuse to grow.” Environmental issues such as deforestation and desertification are offshoots of overproduction. Dillinger suggested fashion companies and designers adopt the decluttering mantra from Marie Kondo, asking themselves pre-production if the item will bring people joy.

Nicole McLaughlin Talks Sustainable Design, Life on Adidas’ Farm and the Permanence of Books

MISTAKEN IDENTITY: Three years into her consultancy with Reebok as a full-time graphic designer, Nicole McLaughlin personifies the Millennial spirit that sustainability doesn’t have to be boring.
Off the clock, the New Jersey creative repurposes vintage store and eBay finds into one-of-a-kind creations. The slides she made from a magenta JanSport backpack racked up nearly 22,000 likes a few weeks ago. And more recently a pair of pants salvaged from two Columbia Sportswear ski jackets were another winner with her followers. “I have two jobs and to be honest they influence each other,” McLaughlin said Tuesday.
Edging more toward concept designer status, she sees her role in both capacities as “how to reimagine something that exists.” The end result can be mules made from Wilson tennis balls, or an umbrella repurposed with The North Face puffer jackets. Nearing the end of a London-Paris-Amsterdam trip with Reebok, McLaughlin said she steers clear of reimagining products from Reebok competitors like Nike or Under Armour.
In New York at the end of last year for a three-month rotation at “The Farm,” the creative hub in Greenpoint run by Adidas, she worked with seven to 12 apparel, footwear, color and material designers from its Herzogenaurach, Germany, and

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

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

The hottest couple to come out of MTV’s The Challenge: Final Reckoning is about to take the next step in their relationship: tattoos.

Current Challengers Cara Maria Sorbello and her Big Brother alum beau Paulie Calafiore took a break from scaling walls and doing puzzles to appear on MTV’s new series, How Far Is Tattoo Far?, hosted by Jersey Shore queen Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Younger‘s Nico Tortorella.

On the show, each pair designs and selects a tattoo for the other person, only to be revealed after they’ve already been permanently inked.

Sitting on the couch before ink is put to skin, Cara Maria attempts to define her five-month relationship with Paulie: “We’re seeing each other. I guess we’re dating, but it’s not exclusive. It’s not commitment. We’re just enjoying each other while we have each other.”

Snooki isn’t fooled and asks outright, “How’s your sex?”

“It’s… the best I’ve ever had,” Cara Maria confesses. (Wonder what her Challenge exes, Abram Boise and Kyle Christie, think about that!)

While the new couple doesn’t exchange “I love yous,” Paulie hints that he has something he wants to say with that tattoo he’s going to have inked onto Cara Maria. “We tiptoe around a lot of things when it comes to our feelings,” he says. “I’ve got a secret and I’m going to reveal it in this tattoo.”

How Far Is Tattoo Far? airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on MTV.

CEO Talks: Ba&sh Takes French-Girl Style to New Territories

PARIS — Will global fascination with French girl style ever let up?
It would seem not. French contemporary brand Ba&sh is steaming ahead with its international push, fueled by the ongoing appeal of feminine looks from France, along with a burgeoning demand for affordable luxury clothing in Asia and North America, according to Pierre-Arnaud Grenade, the firm’s chief executive officer.
Ba&sh belongs to a new generation of digitally savvy labels that have cropped up in the country in recent years and are garnering considerable attention — and financial backing — for their fast pace of growth. General Atlantic recently invested in Sézane, French fund Experience Capital Markets is financing the expansion of Soeur and Sessun, and the Chinese owner of SMCP brands Sandro and Maje listed the company on the Paris stock market last year with an eye to international expansion.
With the support of high-profile fund L Catterton, backed by luxury baron Bernard Arnault, Ba&sh aims to triple sales in three years. The label was founded by a pair of entrepreneurs, Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief, who sought to offer clothing suited for women like them — young, working and intent on remaining stylish, but without excess effort.
The label has been sold in Neiman Marcus for

CEO Talks: Tailored Brands’ Doug Ewert and His Unwavering Focus

It was a David-and-Goliath-type of situation when the Men’s Wearhouse was negotiating to buy its archrival Jos. A. Bank a little more than four years ago. There was a back-and-forth bidding war between the competitors and ultimately, the larger Men’s Wearhouse walked away victorious.
But be careful what you wish for.
While the merger created the largest men’s specialty store chain in the U.S., the $ 1.8 billion acquisition added a hefty amount of debt to Men’s Wearhouse’s balance sheet and the Bank business was in worse shape than its acquirer realized. The promotional strategy it used to drive sales — buy-one-get-one, two, three or even seven, free — was unsustainable.
For two years, chief executive officer Doug Ewert took heat from Wall Street as he worked tirelessly to turn the Bank business around. Today, the newly named Tailored Brands Inc. has turned the corner, quadrupling profits in 2017 and posting comparable-store sales gains at its flagship Men’s Wearhouse and the Jos. A. Bank division.
Here, Ewert discusses the challenging journey to prosperity, the outlook for both businesses as well as its Joseph Abboud brand, its Moores division in Canada, the K&G superstore concept, and the outsized growth the company is experiencing in custom clothing.

Kiki van Eijk Talks Google, Hermès, Salone del Mobile and the Lasting Inspiration of Vincent van Gogh

A NEW DUTCH MASTER: Artists are never any one type, as indicated by Kiki van Eijk’s workload.
Her designs will be featured in various capacities at Salone del Mobile, starting with wall hangings in the Google-presented “Softwear” at Rossana Orlandi’s gallery. The installation bows to the public Tuesday.
For Nodus, she has designed a carpet inspired by a Venetian Carnivale that she painted with watercolors. Another project she has been involved with that will be shown in Milan during Salone del Mobile is called “Shadows of Gold” for Doppia Firma. Working with a gold leaf laboratory in Venice, van Eijk aimed to relay the same kind of energy as sunlight streaming through a window, so she made a replica of the window that is in the laboratory, which shows experiments as to how the light shines through and how an object catches the varying light. The surrounding area will be in shadows while the marble objects that will catch the light will be covered in gold leaf.
Van Eijk has also been hard at work designing the booth for the Dutch furniture brand Linteloo, which will include blown-up versions of her watercolors that will be printed on curtains and transferred onto the space.

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Team Talks Bringing a Modern Sensibility to a Period Comedy

Carlo Rivetti Talks Passion and Innovation at Stone Island

A passion for product is what drives Carlo Rivetti, creative director and chairman of Sportswear Co. SpA, which manufactures the Stone Island brand.
Calling himself the “ideologist” behind the label, Rivetti said Stone Island was born in 1982 with an obsession and passion for product and product innovation.
Stone Island uses plating, coating, garment dying, copper, stainless steel, Kevlar, and reflective and heat sensitive materials for its garments. The Italian-based company has an in-house garment dying lab, where it can obtain 11 different colors on a garment, playing with the fabric, acidity of water, temperature, pressure and print. They have more than 60,000 dyeing recipes.
“My passion has always been to break boundaries. We always follow our ideas, and I’m sure that, sooner or later, the wave of fashion will hit us, and actually that happened,” he said.
Rivetti believes there are two key factors for Stone Island, one being the lab factor and a passion for research and experimentation. The central part is the product that includes shirts, pants, fleecewear, sweaters, coats and jackets. The second is that Stone Island gives status to its wearers. “The consumers feel important and proud when wearing Stone Island,” he said.

Thom Browne Talks London, Store Developments and Challenges

LONDON – Thom Browne is certainly a creature of habit: When he comes to London (a few times each year) he always stays at Claridge’s, has dinner at The Ivy and visits the National Portrait Gallery. And he’ll never give up his tailored shorts, even in the chilly and damp London weather.
During an interview at Claridge’s earlier this week, he was dressed in a tailored suit — a jacket and shorts, despite the unseasonable weather — from his own line. Although he visits London often, this week marked the first time he spoke at Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation, where he talked about his love of showmanship on the catwalk.
At Claridge’s, he talked about his upcoming Miami store, which will open later this year, “It will feel very true to Miami, but in the world of Thom Browne,” and his 1,500-square-foot shop on Albemarle Street in Mayfair. Browne called it a visually strong store: “I just love the way it looks,” he said of the store, which has been done in gray, black and white with marble walls.
Asked about fashion in London – and especially men’s fashion, which is all about streetwear – Browne said, “London is always innovative and

Iskra Lawrence Talks Instagram Fame, Struggling With Eating Disorders at FIT Symposium

Inclusivity, the power of social media fame, the prevalence of eating disorders among models and how they can transcend size were among the issues discussed Friday at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
The Model Alliance’s Sara Ziff led the talk with Iskra Lawrence, Lauren Chan and JAG Models’ Gary Dakin, which was part of The Museum at FIT’s “Fashion and Physique” symposium.
Lawrence described an experience when she was 13, being backstage at a fashion show “buck naked” and unable to fit into any of the garments. After telling a stylist what was wrong, she said he told her, “Well, you’re too fat then,” despite the fact that she wore a size 4 to 6. That experience triggered her disordered eating for five or six years, Lawrence said.
Now an internationally known large-size model with four million followers on Instagram, Lawrence said she believes aspiration “should not be a look but a feeling, if that’s confidence, empowerment, even if it’s sexiness, whatever that might be.” To that end, she decided to share only untouched photos and to talk about her relationship with her body, “to show that even as a model or someone in the media, we all have the same feelings of

Adidas Panel Talks Basketball Culture in Fashion

Refinement of just what defines streetwear is now emerging with the segment’s continued rise, and a panel of designers drawing inspiration from the court sought to tackle basketball’s influence on fashion as much of Los Angeles gears up for Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game.
Adidas, while plenty of its crew prepped for its 747 Warehouse event, on Thursday evening took over sneaker store Nice Kicks and an adjacent parking lot in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of its Boost You Wear shoe collaboration with local label Bristol Studio.
A panel featuring Bristol cofounder and creative director Luke Tadashi, Eric Emanuel of his own namesake label and Adidas’ Brooklyn Creator Farm vice president and creative director Denis Dekovic led a thoughtful conversation on basketball’s reemerging influence on fashion.
“I think basketball for a little while got a little bit cold and there was no excitement,” Tadashi said. “We’re at a time right now where it’s almost a renaissance, where players are able to express themselves, especially walking through the tunnel [before a game] so they can show you how they look off the court. It’s exciting to see.”
Emanuel recalled watching Allen Iverson, noting the athlete as a style icon.

Norma Kamali Talks 50th Anniversary Event, Sirius Radio Show and Health-Inspired Line

FAST FORWARD: While a 50-year anniversary usually calls for some reminiscing, Norma Kamali wants no part of it.
Looking back is counter to the designer’s way of being. “I really hate it,” she said.
Despite that tendency, Kamali has culled 70-plus clothing pieces and accessories for What Goes Around Comes Around and she “appreciates that there is interest in her previous designs.” Her fashion past, so to speak, will be showcased Tuesday in the “Vintage for the Future” event at the WGACA SoHo store and online. Kamali isn’t the only one celebrating an anniversary, the retailer is nearing its 25th year and is eyeing a Madison Avenue location.
WGACA cofounder Gerard Malone said he first met Kamali 10 years ago, and the pair stayed in touch. He thought what better time than fashion week to hold a launch party. Shoppers will find fringed eveningwear, bomber jackets, crop tops and other items mostly in the $ 750 to $ 3,500 retail price range. Kamali was hesitant to pick favorites. “I remember them being favorites, when I made them, and what the creative process was,” she explained. “But even now when I finish collections, I’m separated from it and I’m not connected to it anymore.

CEO Talks: Donna Carpenter of Burton Snowboards

Donna Carpenter was only 20 years old when she walked into a bar in Londonderry, Vt., on New Year’s Eve in 1981 — and her life changed forever.
It was there that she met Jake Burton Carpenter, who had started a business out of his barn in 1977 creating this newfangled product called a snowboard. They married a year later and over the past 35 years have worked together to build Burton Snowboards into an undisputed leader in the snow sports industry.
Donna Carpenter, who started out dipping snowboards in polyurethane and answering the customer service line that rang in their bedroom, was named chief executive officer in February 2016. Over the years she has been credited with creating and expanding the company’s international operations, which now account for about two-thirds of its overall volume. She has also been a champion of the company’s initiatives for equality in the workplace as well as for its push to become a 100 percent sustainable company by 2020. The mother of three also oversees Burton’s Chill Foundation, its non-profit mentoring program for underprivileged children.
Here, Carpenter talks about Burton’s past, present and future and how the brand manages to remain on the cutting edge of snow

Stewart was on hand Thursday evening briefly speaking about the film’s creation and the thinking behind it following a private screening at the Westside Pavilion. “Come Swim” tracks a day in the life of a man grappling with a broken heart, delving inside his personal thoughts and emotions that become so crippling before he eventually comes to and realizes he will be fine.
“It was like when you are so in your own head,” Stewart explained to those in attendance at the screening. “You have things, feelings that, in a really cliché way, are feelings you just think nobody could possibly relate to. Yet, they’re the most standard. There’s not, like, a thought or a feeling you’re going to have that nobody’s had before you, but somehow when you’re in that, you’re so alone. I wanted to be able to really step inside someone’s head and externalize that and then be able to take a step back afterwards and be like from the outside we see you so clearly.”

Idina Menzel is loving married life.

The Broadway star opened up to PEOPLE about newlywed life with actor Aaron Lohr at the Disney/Pixar premiere of Coco in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

“He’s my guy,” she said.

Menzel, 46, and Lohr, 41, tied the knot in September in an intimate backyard ceremony.

And while the actress said she’s loves being able to call Lohr her “husband,” the word family has also taken on a new meaning since their special day.

“Family, to me, means being able to be yourself, sit back on the couch and relax, and watch a movie with the people that know you better than anyone else in the world,” she said.

Menzel, who attended the premiere solo, said Lohr has developed a close bond with her eight-year-old son Walker.

“They’re very close,” she said. “They’re probably watching a film, or they run around play dodgeball with a sock, they make a ball out of socks and they hit each other.”

Menzel voices Frozen‘s Elsa in the Disney short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, which will screen ahead of Coco.

Abbie Cornish Talks Movie Production at Elie Saab Show

PRODUCTIVE WORK: Abbie Cornish is turning her hand to movie production. The Australian actress will be producing the upcoming “The Color of Flesh,” due to begin shooting Stateside next year, she revealed at the Elie Saab show on Saturday afternoon, where she joined guests including French actress Emmanuelle Béart.
“It’s kind of fun to be able to be on the other side,” said Cornish of her new role.
She will also have a starring part in the movie. “I play the portrait painter for Marie-Antoinette; it’s a love triangle between my character, Elisa, Marie-Antoinette and Count Alexis,” she revealed.
Otherwise, Cornish has been busy of late. She has no less than six movies coming out over the next six months, including Dean Devlin’s thriller “Geostorm,” due out Oct. 20, and comic drama “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” set for release in November.
It was the first time in a while that Cornish had attended a fashion week event, she said. “I haven’t been doing anything like this for a few years, I’ve literally just been working. I just took two months’ holiday – I did nothing, it was amazing, but it took me a couple of weeks just to learn the art of doing nothing.”

Shop.org 2017: Kobe Bryant Talks Career Transition, Books, Oscars Chatter

Kobe Bryant used to dream of winning basketball championships and now may be fulfilling what so many in Hollywood often fantasize about, with buzz building around a potential Oscar nomination.
The retired Los Angeles Laker’s short animated film “Dear Basketball” has been chatted up as a possible Oscar nominee in what he said was meant to be “my retirement letter to the game.”
“To sit here right now, to even hear you say that the film is even being considered for an Oscar nom, that’s crazy. I’m winning championships. That’s what I dream of. That’s beyond any realm of any dream whatsoever,” he said.
Bryant, chief executive officer of Kobe Inc. and a general partner at Bryant Stibel, closed out the National Retail Federation’s annual Shop.org conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center Wednesday talking about the transformation he’s undergone via projects taken up since his move away from professional basketball.
Chief among those is Granity Studios, which he said he’s focused on building.

Bachrach President Talks New Brand, Growth Opportunities

One-hundred twenty days. Maybe men’s retailer Bachrach could get an award for that.
In four months and at a cost of about $ 1.3 million, the company filed for Chapter 11, reorganized and emerged nine stores lighter, armed with a new plan for its future.
“The most important thing that we had to accomplish was to close the non-performing stores,” said president Brian Lipman of the bankruptcy’s objective. “Our portion of stores was spread between A, B and C malls. We’re a 100 percent mall-based retailer and some of the locations we had were either in the wrong malls for the product price point we sell or the occupancy costs were just out of the stratosphere. We just couldn’t make money in those doors. And that’s what we accomplished.”
Bachrach, via its in-court restructuring, closed nine doors and now has a fleet of 15 along with e-commerce, in both of which the company sees growth opportunities. While the retailer will consider store growth, that will be in existing markets and will avoid spreading the business too thin, which was one of its issues pre-bankruptcy, Lipman said. It will also look to nab a new, younger customer with the launch of a more fashion-forward, digital

The cover of the issue, out on newsstands today, depicts Macron at the Élysée Palace in a casual chic ensemble pairing a shapely cream jacket by Dior with a white T-shirt and slim jeans by Saint Laurent.
Pictures accompanying the 10-page feature inside show her walking in a courtyard hand-in-hand with her husband, President Emmanuel Macron, in the same look only swapping in a tailored red jacket by Azzedine Alaïa with mesh accents.

Idris Elba Talks Sexy Secret Life as a Pro Kick-Boxer

Onscreen or in the ring, Idris Elba always kicks butt.

The British actor, 44, made his debut as a pro kick-boxer in October and pulled out a win, leading to what his The Dark Tower costar Matthew McConaughey refers to as Elba’s “undefeated K1 career.”

“One fight. Who’s counting?” Elba tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I just wasn’t beaten.”

Elba trained for the October 28 match while shooting the Stephen King adaptation, in which he plays justice defender Gunslinger.

“I trained twice a day,” he says. “I was quickly becoming in incredible shape to endure some of the stuff we did. To be honest, the action sequences were what they were and done in pockets, but I was in good physical and mental shape.”

A post shared by 7dub (@7dub) on Aug 22, 2016 at 1:22am PDT

The father of two had a special guest at his initial face-off in London—Madonna.

“Idris Elba Smashes it at York Hall!” the pop star, 58, wrote on Instagram at the time.

A post shared by Madonna (@madonna) on Oct 28, 2016 at 5:58pm PDT

Elba recently accomplished another first: directing a movie, Yardie, based on Victor Headley’s 1993 novel by the same name. His experience working on the crime film even inspired McConaughey to think about getting behind the camera.

“Idris talked about his love of the experience of it,” McConaughey, 47, tells PEOPLE. “I’ve got a couple of original scripts I’m working on that I would be the only one who could direct them. When I do that, it’s gotta be something that I gotta feel, for every single frame. That would make it really hard, but really fun.”

And Elba offered nothing but support.

“You’d be good at it,” he tells McConaughey. “I think you’d be so passionate and thorough.”

Milo Ventimiglia Talks Jack’s Death on This Is Us: ‘When the Answers Come, You’ll Be Satisfied’

This Is Us audiences don’t have all the answers — but when they do, Milo Ventimiglia believes they’ll be “satisfied.”

Since the heartbreaking season one finale aired in March, fans have been theorizing about the way in which Ventimiglia’s beloved character, Jack Pearson, passed away.

“The number one comment I get is, ‘tell me how you died,’ which stung a little bit when I would first get that question,” Ventimiglia, 39, told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview.

RELATED VIDEO: Milo Ventimiglia & Mandy Moore Talk the ‘This Is Us’ Finale: ‘There Was a Lot of Tension on Set’

The day after the finale was televised, Ventimiglia recalled a viewer asking about father of three Jack’s on-screen death, which shook the actor emotionally.

“I remember the first time it happened was the day after the finale and I was taking a meeting and I was walking across the studio lot and a guy said to me, ‘Hey man, great show. … I was a little bummed, though. Last night, we couldn’t see how you died,’ ” Ventimiglia remembered the man telling him.

At that moment, Ventimiglia “stopped and I walked over and I put my hand out and I said, ‘I’m Milo.’ He said, ‘Hey, I’m Jim.’ I said, ‘Jim, I want you to think about what you just said. You’re upset you didn’t see a man die. I’m that man. Think about that.’ ”

Watch The Jess Cagle Interview: Milo Ventimiglia, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to people.com/PEN, or download  the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected  TV device.

While Ventimiglia understands that loyal fans want the mystery behind Jack’s death to be revealed sooner than later, he vows waiting for the answer to the burning question will be worth it.

“I get that it’s fresh because TV audiences are savvy. Especially in the world that we live in today — with social media and digital and internet — everybody wants all the information. They want it now,” he explained

“I feel like this show is getting back to that appointment television where you’re going to clock in once a week, you’re going to pay attention, and then guess what? You’re going to wait one more week, just seven days. So that information, that want to, that desire to say, ‘I want to know how Jack died,’ well, you’re just going to have to wait and be patient,” he said, and added, “Because when the answers come, you’ll be satisfied.”

This Is Us returns for season 2 this fall on NBC.

James Franco Talks ‘Sleazy New York’ at Coach Breakfast

James Franco made his first appearance as the face of Coach’s forthcoming men’s fragrance wearing a navy intarsia sweater with a Space Shuttle motif — and talking about the “sleazy New York of the Seventies” and its then “burgeoning porn industry.”
The actor, whose face broke into a big smile the minute he addressed a press gathering on Monday morning in Manhattan, was referring to the yet-to-be-released HBO series “The Deuce,” in which he plays twins involved in that industry.
Coach unveiled a short commercial and print ad lensed by Steven Meisel, picturing Franco leaning against a vintage car with the Manhattan skyline in the background.
“The shoot was interesting,” Franco demurred, before sitting down to a three-course breakfast perfumed with cardamom, kumquat and geranium, which are among notes in the scent, produced under license by Inter Parfums SA.
The event fell on a special day for Victor Luis, chief executive officer of Coach Inc. “Today is my 11th anniversary at Coach,” he told the crowd, introducing Joshua Schulman, president and chief executive officer of the Coach brand, who started work that very morning and was toting a seating plan for the brand’s vast offices in a futuristic office tower at Hudson Yards.

Vladimir Putin Talks ‘Tetris’ Tactics In Spoof Phone Call With Donald Trump

In Conan O’Brien’s latest imagined telephone call, Putin schools President Donald Trump on the intricacies of the tile-matching puzzle video game.

“We stack the pieces as they fall, placing them exactly where they need to be,” says the fake Putin.

“We let them pile up, biding our time, waiting for the exact right moment,” he adds. “Then when everything is in place, when the pressure is mounting and it seem like everything is about to end, we drop the final pieces and bring the whole thing down.”

Sounds like good “Tetris” advice to us. Well, he couldn’t be talking about anything else, could he?

Suntchi’s CEO Paul Fang Talks Potential of CFDA Deal

NEW YORK — The Council of Fashion Designers of America last month forged a five-year partnership with Suntchi Brand & Technology Co. Ltd., a full-service management company with offices in Shanghai, Tokyo and New York. Through the partnership, CFDA’s 500-plus members gain access to the Chinese market and an opportunity to take advantage of Suntchi’s network of business partners in China.
Here, Paul Fang, founder and chief executive officer of Suntchi, discusses via an interpreter what type of American brands are most desirable to the Chinese consumer and the potential of the collaboration.

Colleen Atwood Talks “Fantastic Beasts” at Swarovski pre-BAFTA Event

BEAUTY AND BEASTS: “I have a more minimalist sensibility, so the rawness of New York in the Twenties really drew me in,” said Colleen Atwood, costume designer behind the BAFTA-nominated “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Ahead of the annual BAFTA awards in London on Sunday, Feb. 12, Atwood talked about the process of designing the costumes for J.K. Rowling’s adventure film, as well as for past works such as “Alice in Wonderland” and “Sleepy Hollow,” at Swarovski’s costume design master class this weekend.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them” is nominated for best costume design, alongside “La La Land,” “Jackie,” “Allied” and “Florence Foster Jenkins.” Atwood’s work for “Beasts” has also been nominated for an Oscar.
Atwood said she was primarily drawn to New York in the Twenties, the movie’s backdrop, and to the possibilities of a new life that the city presented at the time. “It was a time when ‘modern’ was becoming accessible. The city’s most developing neighborhoods, such as the Lower East Side, Harlem or the Bronx, drew a constant flow of immigrants, and became the background of the story, bringing it to life,” said Atwood who oversaw more than 3,500 fittings for the film’s extras.

Syfy’s Newest Hero Talks About His Role In The Hit Show “The Expanse”

NPR praised The Expanse last year as the best science fiction in a decade for its grasp of physics in a future unlike ours. The characters live two hundred years from now when Mars and the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter are restive former colonies of Earth. One example of getting the physics just right: many of the show’s scenes are set in space ships where things like weightlessness are perfectly realized down to the smallest detail.

But the best realism in this series may be what’s all too similar to our own: betrayal, corruption, greed, aggression, and racism. They play out in the complex interlocking stories of a UN diplomat trying to stave off war between Mars and Earth, a battered PI on a missing persons case that unlocks a horrific biological secret with galactic implications, and a ship captain who starts out as an ordinary Joe but assumes heroic stature when his ship is destroyed and he brushes up against that secret.

2017-01-13-1484303991-3472185-straitexpanse.jpeg

People often dismiss genres like mystery and science fiction as nothing more than escapist entertainment. Best-selling British crime writer Val McDermid once told a spellbound class of mine in a study abroad program in London that there’s actually a long history of these genres making profound commentary about current social and political realities. The Expanse is a perfect example. Its gorgeous Season Two trailer asks the perennial question in a time of turmoil: “Which side are you on?”

No matter the genre, the best epics don’t just rely on spectacle, they’re rooted in human drama, in the emotional reality of individuals struggling to find balance as they hack their way forward through a jungle of chaos and lies. Steven Strait, who some readers might know from The Covenant, is the ideal lead to anchor a story with this kind of scope, playing the part of Captain James Holden with passionate intensity. He makes Holden intimately sympathetic, giving the captain a balanced mix of dignity and vulnerability that’s right in line with the character in the books The Expanse is based on. I recently asked him to reflect on various aspects of his work on the show. Here’s what he had to say:

LR: Before you auditioned for the part, did you have any preconceived notions of what it would demand of you? And have you read any of the books in the series?

SS: I had read the first two novels before I went in to read for the part, so I had the architecture for Holden’s character arc. I wasn’t sure exactly how the production was going to match the sheer scale and realism that was emphasized as a cornerstone in the books. No science fiction show of this size and tone had been done on television before, but the prospect of doing something new and ambitious was really exciting to me.

2017-01-13-1484319234-9750127-expansestrait01.jpg

LR: Given that’s you’d read those two books, what was central for you in creating Holden on screen? And what did you bring to the ways he’s forced to change from being a simple captain of his first ship the Canterbury to a hero and prime mover of the story line?

SS: The key to Holden for me was understanding his empathy and sense of calling. Not in a broad, philosophical way but in a personal one. He was deeply affected by what he experienced with the destruction of the Canterbury. That was the first domino to fall for Holden in becoming a leader. His sense of guilt and responsibility for the death of his friends pushes him to find justice and answers as to why it happened. As he moves deeper into the narrative, and he realizes that what he’s chasing effects, literally, the whole of humanity, his sphere of responsibility grows in turn. With more responsibility comes more compromise to his moral code which is very black-and-white and naive when you meet him. Over time it becomes grayer, simply because the more people, entities, and situations he has to deal with on an ever-increasing scale, the more he’s forced to compromise inside himself to get the job done. The question is how far can he push that compromise until his moral code breaks all together? It’s a fun tightrope to walk in playing him.

2017-01-13-1484319473-2879008-straitladder.jpg

LR: It sounds like it’s been a great immersion for you, and that’s probably one of the reasons the show is so gripping for viewers. How much time off did you have between shooting Season One and Two? Was that difficult?

SS: I think it was almost a full year between shooting the first and second season, which was difficult but understandable. The scope and nuance of the edit and the special effects are incredibly important to how well the show works. It was our first season, so they had to make sure everything was correct, and I’m glad they did.

LR: Everything on screen does seem perfectly chosen–it’s a visual feast. But do you think it would be a different experience for you playing a character like Holden who didn’t live in a future? And connected to that, does science fiction ask anything from actors as an ensemble that a contemporary drama doesn’t?

SS: Science fiction and period drama to me are two sides of the same coin. One happens to be in the future and one happens to be in the past. But regardless of when you’re playing, you still have to find why anyone should care about what you’re portraying. The humanity, flaws, and conflicts within the characters allow the audience to empathize with them. It helps that the future we’re portraying is very similar to the world we live in today. Which I think is the great benefit of science fiction: you’re able to talk about issues personally and politically which might not be digestible for an audience if they weren’t masked by different names and timelines of another era. So it becomes relatable without being threatening.

2017-01-13-1484319299-8618163-expansestrait3.png

LR: Looking back at Season One, has playing Holden turned out differently than you expected?

SS: The character arc for Holden that I prepared before we started season one was essentially how it turned out as the end result. I wanted to portray a non-archetypal hero where you see him stumble and struggle every step of the way. Becoming a leader for Holden isn’t an easy journey. He has it within him, but it’s not something that he ever wanted for himself until the destruction of his first ship the Canterbury forces it to the surface. What I was hoping to do was show, realistically, how a juvenile, naïve young man becomes a competent and passionate leader.

LR: That transformation is one of the best parts of watching The Expanse. What do you think you’ve learned as an actor in this show?

SS: More than anything, The Expanse reinforced, for me, the power of a truly integrated ensemble. Everyone on the show creatively gives everything they have and is open to collaboration. We rehearse on our weekends, and have since the first episode. The actors, writers, directors, we all collaborate and are open to each other’s ideas. As a result, I think we’ve become greater than the sum of our parts. The passion and excitement for working on it is infectious. It’s a wonderful environment to experiment and take creative risks because everyone feels safe. Truly, an amazing experience for me.

LR: Well, the camaraderie really comes across on screen. Stepping back from how things are, if you could play anyone else in The Expanse, who would it be?

SS: It would be [PI] Joe Miller. Simply because I think it would be interesting to play almost the exact opposite arc as Holden’s. You find Miller jaded and burnt out from years of corrupt work on Ceres station and through searching for Julie Mao [the missing person in Season One] and becoming obsessed with her, he finds himself. She’s a symbol of everything he’s lost and is hoping to find. It’s an intimate narrative to play, and Tom Jane has done it beautifully, with such nuance and intelligence it’s very difficult to imagine anyone else giving Miller a shot.

LR: How do you stay focused and avoid distractions when you’re working on the show?

SS: I was on set most days and when I got home I’d usually go for a run, look through the next day’s work, tinker on the choices and read resource material until I fell asleep and the cycle would start over again the next day. My time off was spent with my colleagues and our weekends were devoted to rehearsals for the most part. We have a uniquely committed creative culture on this show. The passion and desire to continually dig into the narrative, for character work and thematicall, was incredibly inspiring. It was all I wanted to do with my time.

Curb Your Ire, Bros: Anna Kendrick Is In Talks To Play Santa In A Disney Movie

Anna Kendrick is in talks to play Santa Claus in a new Disney movie, Variety reported Wednesday.

We know some people are incredibly protective of the traditional image of Santa Claus, so the backlash about this news seems inevitable. Typically protesters (aka Megyn Kelly) argue that Santa ― a fictional character with historical ties to a Turkish monk ― must be white. Now they get to argue over whether Father Christmas must, in fact, be a father. (Please don’t.)  

The project’s working title is “Nicole.” Kendrick plays Santa’s daughter, who is left to take over the family business when Saint Nick retires and her brother chickens out before his first Christmas in charge. “Miss Congeniality” and “Two Weeks Notice” scribe Marc Lawrence has written the script and will direct the film. 

Gender-swapping on the big screen is nothing new, of course. Just last year, misogynistic bros claimed their childhoods were ruined by Paul Feig’s female-centric “Ghostbusters” reboot. Marvel opted to cast Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One in “Doctor Strange.” And a reboot of “Ocean’s 11” booked an all-star cast including Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock and Mindy Kaling.

Most other details about “Nicole” are under wraps. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s not a musical. The Huffington Post reached out to Kendrick’s rep to confirm her involvement but did not immediately hear back.

Footwear Designer Beverly Feldman Talks about Theresa May’s Style Influence

MORE IS MORE: British Prime Minister Theresa May continues to draw attention in the British media for her fashion choices, ranging from her Amanda Wakeley leather trousers – which drew bitter criticism from former education secretary Nicky Morgan – to her love of over-the-top shoes. The politician’s style choices have been closely documented in the press since her appointment.
Beverly Feldman, the British accessories designer based in Alicante, Spain, is just one designer who’s been benefiting from increased media attention after May was snapped in some of her signature styles. May wears the label’s Caliente pumps, a pointed-toe, kitten heel style with crystal embellishments and contrasting panels in bold patterns, such as leopard print, fuchsia pony skin and metallic snake-effect leather.
Feldman said having a woman like May seen in her shoes has much more impact than celebrity endorsements.
“It’s true validity for the brand that a real woman in a powerful position believes in you – as opposed to a Hollywood celebrity whose choices are dependent on what their stylists have selected for them on an evening out,” said Feldman, adding that she admires May’s playful taste when it comes to accessories.

Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli Talks Creative Freedom and Next Steps for the House

Frank Sinatra put it like this: “I did it my way.”
Pierpaolo Piccioli’s way of life is unconventional, especially for a couturier. And that’s just how he likes it. Valentino’s creative director continues to live in Nettuno, Italy, a beach town 44 miles south of Rome where he was born, where he met his wife, Simona, and where they are raising their three children. Piccioli’s choice seems to mirror his understated and affable manners.
When he’s not traveling around the world, Piccioli rides the train to Rome and back each day like thousands of other commuters, and splits his time between the Italian capital, in the storied Piazza Mignanelli headquarters, Paris and Milan.
