Virgil Abloh to Take ‘Temperature’ of Our Times at Pitti

MILAN — “Imagination plus clothing to me equals art.”
That equation forms the basis of Off-White’s philosophy, according to Virgil Abloh, the brand’s founder and creative director.
And fashion and art are definitely instrumental to “open people’s minds, change the context,” as the eclectic artist and designer explained during an interview at the Cardi Black Box art gallery here, which had been transformed into the company’s temporary headquarters. Abloh and his team are currently working on the men’s runway show the brand will host in Florence on June 15, as a special guest of the 92nd edition of Pitti Uomo.
“I’m super inspired by being asked to show at Pitti because I feel like it’s a great institution within fashion to highlight designers that are doing relevant work,” said Abloh, who is taking part in the Florentine fashion calendar for the first time. “For Pitti, being asked is a sort of [acknowledgment] that a new style in fashion has arrived. And, to me, I’m thankful to be given that stage to do this concept.”
But the location and its tradition, while definitely pushing Abloh to develop a collection “showing the tension between sartorial and streetwear,” as he explained, weren’t the designer’s only sources of inspiration. Abloh highlighted “I’m

London Sunday Times Publishes Rich List, With Brexit a Big Wealth Factor

THE WEALTH DIARIES: The 2017 Sunday Times of London Rich List is out, ranking British — and international — billionaires and millionaires whose wealth reflects the shape-shifting world economy over the past 12 months.
The 29th annual edition of the list includes Britain’s 1,000 richest people, and the compilers argue that many of the 134 billionaires were able to amass even more wealth from the “post-Brexit boom” last year, which fueled the stock market and pushed down the value of the pound. New money, they said, came mainly from the city of London, property and manufacturing.
“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said Robert Watts, who compiled the list.
A sidebar to the main story is the International Rich List, which is even more interesting than the British one. At number one is the Walton family, owners of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., whose net worth is estimated to be 100.6 billion pounds, or $ 136.82 billion; at number four is Inditex owner Amancio Ortega, with a fortune of 63.5 billion pounds, or $ 86.36 billion; while at number 12, there’s Bernard Arnault, whose net worth is calculated to be 35.2

10 Times Princess Kate Said What Everyone’s Thinking About Parenthood

Yes, she lives in a palace and borrows jewelry from the Queen, but Princess Kate is also a mom of two toddlers —which means the same tantrums, food battles and sleep struggles as the rest of us. As 3-year-old Prince George and nearly 2-year-old Princess Charlotte continue to grow, Kate has increasingly shared her thoughts on parenthood  and its many challenges. Here are her most honest, relatable quotes about being a mother, the parents she admires and why every child matters.

1. On remembering that as a parent, you’re not alone — even if it feels like it sometimes.

“It is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated. But actually so many other mothers are going through what you are going through, but it’s being brave enough to actually reach out.”

— at the Global Academy round table discussion

2. On the shock of new motherhood:

“Nothing can really prepare you for you the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother. It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost.”

— at the launch of a series of educational films from Best Beginnings, a charity partner of her Heads Together campaign

3. On judgment:

“Around a third of parents still worry that they will look like a bad mother or father if their child has a mental health problem. Parenting is hard enough without letting prejudices stop us from asking for the help we need for ourselves and our children.”

4. On how important the mental health of her own children is to her:

“We hope to encourage George and Charlotte to speak about their feelings, and to give them the tools and sensitivity to be supportive peers to their friends as they get older. We know there is no shame in a young child struggling with their emotions or suffering from a mental illness.”

5. On the values she hopes to instill in George and Charlotte:

“My parents taught me about the importance of qualities like kindness, respect, and honesty, and I realize how central values like these have been to me throughout my life. That is why William and I want to teach our little children, George and Charlotte just how important these things are as they grow up. In my view it is just as important as excelling at maths or sport.”

— during a visit to Mitchell Brook Primary School in February 2017

6. On how her own upbringing shaped her:

“”When I was growing up I was very lucky. My family was the most important thing to me. They provided me with somewhere safe to grow and learn, and I know I was fortunate not to have been confronted by serious adversity at a young age.”

7. On parenting in difficult circumstances:

“Parenting is tough. And with the history and all the things and the experiences you’ve all witnessed, to do that on top of your own anxieties, and the lack of support you also received as mothers. I find it extraordinary how you’ve managed actually. So really well done.”

— at Anna Freud Centre’s Early Years Parenting Unit in January 2017

8. On why she cares about children’s mental health:

“People often ask me why I am so interested in the mental health of children and young people. The answer is quite simple — it is because I think that every child should have the best possible start in life.”

— at the Place2Be Big Assembly for Children’s Mental Health Week

9. On why we should listen to children:

“Imagine if everyone was able to help just one child who needs to be listened to, needs to be respected, and needs to be loved — we could make such a huge difference for an entire generation.”

— at the Place2Be Headteacher Conference

10. On the “huge challenge” of parenthood:

“Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience. However, at times it has also been a huge challenge. Even for me, who has support at home that most mothers do not.”

— at the launch of a series of educational films from Best Beginnings, a charity partner of her Heads Together campaign

13 Times Reese Witherspoon Nailed What It’s Like To Be A Mom

It’s a busy time for Reese Witherspoon. The actress wrapped filming “A Wrinkle In Time,” has been making the press rounds for her HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies,” and on Wednesday, celebrated her 41st birthday.

Witherspoon had a solid squad to help her commemorate the occasion. She’s married to talent agent Jim Toth and has three kids: 17-year-old Ava, 13-year-old Deacon and 4-year-old Tennessee.

Since becoming a mom, Witherspoon has been open about the ups and downs of parenting. In honor of her birthday, we’ve rounded up some of her best quotes about motherhood.

1. “I was 23 [when I became a mom]. I didn’t know what I was doing. I was young. It was shocking. When people ask, ‘When’s the best time to get pregnant?’ I say, ‘Pick the best day for when your entire life is gonna change.’ There’s no good time to have your world turned upside down.”

2. “I constantly question myself: Have I exposed them to the right amount of culture (no), do I spend enough time with each of them as individuals (probably not), do I have the right amount of work/family balance (who knows!). I’m trying!”

3. “We have rules around the house. I always say if you aren’t yelling at your kids you’re not spending enough time with them. Just telling everybody to clean up all the time. I feel like I’m always telling people to clean up. ‘Clean up, clean up, put your dishes in the dishwasher, put your clothes in the laundry, come on now.”

4. “The first few months with a baby are so disorienting. I felt like my brain was scrambled eggs, and I think it is, understandably, hard to get dressed or even get out of the house ― you have to go easy on yourself. Having prepared foods in the fridge and freezer was essential because thinking about cooking made me want to cry.”

5. “No one’s really doing it perfectly. I think you love your kids with your whole heart, and you do the best you possibly can.”

6. “People know not to call me before 8:15, because 8:15 is when everybody has to either be on the bus or at school and then my whole life starts at 8:15.”

7. “I don’t think there’s been an hour of my life since Ava was born that I don’t think of my kids. I call it my CNN ticker tape: Is Ava OK? Yes. Is Deacon OK? Yes. Is Tennessee OK? Yes. Back to Ava.”

8. “Seeing my kids for the first time was primal. The ferocity of love you feel for your children when you see them for the first time ― but you’ve known them inside you ― is phenomenal.”

9. “When I had a little girl at 22, I was even more determined to, I don’t know … I went from just surviving to, ‘Who do I want to be for this other person?’ That’s what happens when you have a child… You kind of look inward. [When you have three], your eyes cross. You look so far inward that your eyes cross. No, you’re just confused all the time.”

10. “This is so dumb, but the other day Ava said, ‘Well, Mom, you said that drinking water with lemon is good for my body. I burst into tears, going, ‘Oh my God, you listen to me!’ Parenting triumph.”

11. “Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids ― probably really competitive, to be honest. It really made me let go of that.”

12. “There are some sacrifices you make, and it hurts your heart sometimes, but my kids tell me they’re proud of what I’ve accomplished, and that just means everything. I grew up with a working mom, and I have so much respect for the things she did as a nurse and a teacher. I would never begrudge her that.”

13. “Parenthood is not at all what I expected it to be. I thought you make little people in your image. But they are just nothing like me or their father. They are their own individuals.”

New York Times Running ‘Truth Ad’ During Oscars

In an interesting rejoinder to attacks against the New York Times and other media by the Trump administration, the newspaper is running an ad called “The Truth is Hard,” which is slated during the Academy Awards on Sunday.

The ad opens with a white screen and the words “the truth is,” followed by dozens of different contradictory phrases from the last months, both written and spoken. It begins with: “The truth is our nation is more divided than ever,” but segues into statements such as “alternative facts are lies,” “the media is dishonest,” “women should dress like women,” and “women’s rights are human rights.”

It concludes: “The truth is hard to find. The truth is hard to know. The truth is more important now than ever.”

The 30-second spot is running just two days after the Times, along with and CNN, the Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and other news organizations, were barred from attending a press briefing at the White House on Friday. It’s the first time the newspaper has run a TV commercial since 2010, according to the Associated Press.

“The idea is to be a part of that discussion about what does it mean to find the truth,” newspaper branding exec David Rubin told CNNMoney. “What does that mean in a world of ‘fake news’? And what is the role of journalism and journalists in that process, and what is the role of reader in supporting that journalism?”

Rubin said the Academy Awards was chosen for the spot because it’s a “high-profile media moment.”

The commercial will be presented in other time slots as well, and will also run in print.

The New York Times has been repeatedly targeted by Donald Trump as “failing” and branded as a purveyor of “fake news.”

A different kind of truth defense was launched earlier in the week with a new catch phrase by the Washington Post on its website: “Democracy dies in darkness.”

7 Times Aziz Ansari Was The Much-Needed Voice Of Reason

Though Aziz Ansari usually plays the silly guy on screen, he’s also known for calling out our serious injustices.

Whether it’s tackling racism in his “SNL” monologue or bringing attention to the sexism women face every day, Ansari has schooled everyone on issues in the no B.S. kind of way only he could. 

In honor of Ansari’s 34th birthday on Thursday, we invite you to treat yo’ self to these seven times he was the voice of reason in the crazy world we live in.

 

When He Made His “SNL” Monologue About Combating Racism

While expectations were already high for the first-ever South Asian “SNL” host, Ansari managed to bring the house down with his monologue in January. 

Ansari, whose parents are immigrants, made it clear that the country is, in fact, great. He explained that his family still loves America despite the divisive political climate and “they’re not leavin’.” 

But he also acknowledged the rising xenophobia, racism and Islamophobia following the election and called on President Donald Trump to do something about it.

“Don’t tweet about me being lame or the show being lame. Write a speech. A real speech,” he said, addressing Trump. “Because these people are out there and it’s pissing people off. And I think he could make a difference.”  

 

When He Reminded Us All To Call Our Parents 

Ansari’s “Master of None” show on Netflix has been lauded for its commentary on race, sexism and the immigrant experience. 

But for the actor, one of the biggest takeaways was his newfound appreciation for his mother and father.

The actor wrote about his experience casting his parents in the sitcom on The Huffington Post. Working with them ultimately strengthened their relationship and made him realize how important they truly are.

“In reality, I haven’t always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better,” he wrote. “And if you have something like that with your family — I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life … Enjoy and love these people while you can.”

 

When He Urged Men To Pay Better Attention To Women’s Experiences

In a 2015 interview with the Daily Beast, Ansari, a self-proclaimed feminist, said that men need to be more cognizant of the sexism women are subjected to. 

Discussing an episode of “Master of None” that addressed sexual harassment, Ansari mentioned that it was actually inspired by a standup comedy show he did at Madison Square Garden. He said that, unfortunately, many men in the audience appeared unaware of the amount of harassment that women regularly receive.

Ansari asserted that it’s necessary for men to take action and learn. 

“I thought it was interesting that this is happening, yet so many people are unaware of it,” he told the outlet. “What I’ve learned, as a guy, is to just ask women questions and listen to what they have to say. Go to your group of female friends and ask them about times they’ve experienced sexism at their job, and you’ll get blown away by the things they tell you.” 

 

When He Explained How Ridiculous It Was To Be On The Fence About Voting 

During this past election cycle, many celebrities came out to urge citizens to fulfill their civic duties. But no one quite did so like Ansari. 

In a video by climate change advocacy group NextGen Climate, the actor boiled down exactly how crucial it was to get out to the polls. 

“What the f**k do you need?” Ansari said in the video, later adding: “There’s a f**king guy running that says he hates brown people. That’s not enough?”

 

When He Called Out Hollywood For Limiting Roles For Asians To Stereotypes

Asians hardly nab any speaking roles in Hollywood. When they do, they’re often cast as tropes. And Ansari wasn’t shy about bringing this up around a group of industry vets.  

During a The Hollywood Reporter roundtable discussion featuring several actors, including Anthony Anderson and Jeffrey Tambor, Ansari spoke about how many viewers were surprised to see actors of diverse backgrounds playing characters who deviated from stereotypes on “Master of None.” Usually, this isn’t the case. 

“A lot of times when people write for Indian actors or Asian actors or anybody somewhat different, it is insulting because they have a certain view of, “… Oh, this Indian guy, let’s put him in the cab or in the market,’” he said. “Let’s not make him the guy who is this woman’s love interest,” or something like that, ‘:et’s get the white guy for that, of course.’”

 

When He Wrote A Sobering Op-Ed About Islamophobia In The New York Times 

Back in June, the comedian wrote a piece, entitled “Why Trump Makes Me Scared for My Family,” about how Islamophobic rhetoric during the election cycle has affected his family and others of Muslim backgrounds. 

Following Trump’s offensive tweet about Muslims after the Orlando shooting, Ansari, the son of Muslim immigrants, broke down why hate speech is so harmful to those of the faith. And also why it’s just absurd. 

“The overwhelming number of Muslim Americans have as much in common with that monster in Orlando as any white person has with any of the white terrorists who shoot up movie theaters or schools or abortion clinics,” he wrote. 

 

When He Dragged Rupert Murdoch For Tweeting Islamophobic Comments

After the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, Rupert Murdoch tweeted inflammatory comments about Muslims around the world being held responsible for the actions of extremists. And Ansari unleashed a Twitter rant.  

The actor flipped the script on Murdoch, and launched the hashtag “#RupertsFault.” Ansari tweeted about incidents relating to the Christian community and how the billionaire could be responsible for them, showing the flaw in Murdoch’s logic.

WATCH: Living in Interesting Times

Ever hear the expression, “May you live in interesting times”…? I think there’s little doubt that we are doing so. I hope this video will help you not only survive but also thrive, no matter the challenges.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

Third Time’s The Charm For Kate Upton And Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

Kate Upton rules the beach again. The bombshell model made the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for the third time ― and is featured in three separate covers. The annual issue hit the newsstand on Wednesday.

“I love them all,” she said backstage after she first got a first look at them on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Upton, who previously graced the covers in 2012 and 2013, is appearing in the issue for the fifth time. 

It’s a full circle moment for us,” Swimsuit Edition editor MJ Day told Sports Illustrated. “We started Kate in her career, and you know, we watched her grow and become not only this worldwide, superstar phenomenon; she changed the direction of the modeling industry.”

Upton told S.I. she was excited to be in an issue that emphasized “every woman of every age and every body type being accepted. It was inspiring to be asked to be a part of that issue.” 

Others appearing in the issue include supermodel Chrissy Teigen, tennis champ Serena Williams, 63-year-old Christie Brinkley (also a three-time S.I. cover model), and Olympic gold medal gymnast Simone Biles.

Check out Upton’s backstage reaction here.
