Jerry Springer: My show was stupid, but criticism about it is unfair

Jerry Springer doesn’t see why wannabe stars – even those prone to brash behaviour and rude outbursts – should be barred from appearing on TV simply because they run the risk of embarrassing themselves.

Album Review: Tanya Tucker’s ‘While I’m Livin”

Before there was a name and a place for it, an “outlaw” was what Tanya Tucker was in the years following her gentle country smash with the gospel lilt, “Delta Dawn,” in 1972. A hellraiser and heartbreaker (Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell were just a few of her noted lovers), Tucker made as many headlines […]

Chiara Ferragni Named Guest Editor of Upcoming Grazia Italia Issue

FERRAGNI-FICATION: It seems the world can’t have enough of Chiara Ferragni. Exactly a year after hosting the pop version of a royal wedding, the personality behind The Blonde Salad digital platform and the Chiara Ferragni Collection footwear and accessories label will once again mirror Meghan Markle assuming the role of guest editor in chief for a magazine. Instead of Vogue, Ferragni will curate the upcoming edition of weekly magazine Grazia Italia, which will hit newsstands on Aug. 29. This is the first time the publication names a guest editor. Ferragni broke the news on Thursday via Instagram. In a range of Instagram Stories, she revealed the issue will be “all about inspiring women, diversity, cyberbullying” and other matters close to her heart and that could inspire her 17.2 million followers. “I want to dedicate this issue to my followers that have been my strength and super-loyal during the years,” she added before thanking Grazia Italia’s editor in chief Silvia Grilli for the opportunity and for being “a big support for me since the beginning.” On her hand, Grilli teased the collaboration in the magazine’s current issue, released on Thursday. In her editor’s letter she defined Ferragni as “one of the firsts to understand the potentiality of

Designers & Agents Trade Show Founder Pivots to Cannabis With The Plant Lore Agency

After more than three decades in the fashion industry, most notably as the cofounder of the Designers & Agents trade show, Barbara Kramer is pivoting to cannabis. Kramer has opened The Plant Lore, a full-service agency offering branding and product development, sales representation and retail support. Based in Los Angeles, she and her team are representing 10 high-end brands making CBD-infused products, including CBD + Nature (skincare); Gron (beauty and confections); Hello Goldie (tea); Mimoi (color face foundation with SPF); Ondo (tinctures), and Beboe (CBD vape pens). They have partnered with Wunderlich Kaplan Communications to offer brands public relations support. “I have always been interested in coloring outside the lines,” said Kramer, whose entrepreneurial spirit has moved her from New York to L.A. several times, while she was working as a showroom owner and sales agent for such fashion brands as Tocca, Jean Paul Gaultier and Petit Bateau. She and Ed Mandelbaum started D&A in 1996, focusing on the advanced contemporary category, and expanded the fair beyond New York and L.A. to Paris and Tokyo. Over the years, she’s produced runway shows, collaborated with the CFDA on events and been a buyer for Tootsie Plohound shoe stores. Three years ago, when she started

Novak Djokovic and Montblanc Launch Special StarWalker Fineliner

NEW YORK — Novak Djokovic is a huge advocate for sports and education, but the latter is why he partnered with Montblanc through his Novak Djokovic Foundation to create a limited-edition StarWalker writing instrument. Djokovic, who is the number-one ranked tennis player in the world and is defending his U.S. Open championship this month, had an intimate conversation with Hypebeast’s Courtney Kenefick at Soho House in the Meatpacking District to talk about his collaboration with Montblanc, his foundation, the importance of education and his experience in education and writing. “I’ve grown up in a household where education was essential. It took more than just tennis skills to get where I am today,” Djokovic said. Djokovic spoke at length about education in Serbia, his home country, and how it can improve early childhood education programs. “Our education is quite good [for ages] seven and older, but there’s lack of awareness of what preschool really means,” he explained. He said culture and finances are reasons for the lack of programs and awareness, and added, “As a father of two wonderful children, now I’m understanding more.” Djokovic started the Novak Djokovic Foundation in 2007 to invest in preschool education in Serbia at a time when 55 percent

The show’s release is in tandem with U.S. Polo Assn.’s yearlong brand campaign, “Inspiring Others,” supporting female polo players through women’s training programs, charities, tournaments, as well as lifestyle and fashion events. The launch is timed with Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26 which commemorates the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “With U.S. Polo Assn. being the official brand of the United States Polo Association, it was important for us to recognize these amazing women and share their inspirational stories both on and off the polo field,” said J. Michael Prince, president and chief executive officer of USPA Global Licensing Inc., which manages the multi-billion U.S. Polo Assn. brand. The show will reach more than 100 million households across a national audience and will air Labor Day weekend on the TVG network, which focuses on equestrian sports.

Kering-Led Fashion Pact Has 32 Signatories in Run-up to G7 Summit

PARIS — Geopolitical tensions might be running high ahead of this weekend’s summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, but the fashion industry is eager to paint a different picture — one of corporate rivals banding together with pledges to do better for the environment, signing on to the “Fashion Pact.” Eliminating single-use plastics, using renewable energy and promoting regenerative agriculture practices are among the commitments from signatories of the pact, which will be presented by Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault at the upcoming summit hosted by France in its coastal city Biarritz. Structured around the climate, biodiversity and the oceans, the initiative is spearheaded by Pinault, who was mandated for the job by French President Emmanuel Macron last April. Thirty-two companies have signed on so far, representing around 150 brands, and more are on the way, according to Kering and officials from the French president’s office and the country’s ministry of ecology.  Companies that have signed on so far range from fast-fashion retailers H&M and Zara-owner Inditex; sportswear labels Adidas and Nike; American-based companies Capri Holdings, Gap, PVH, Ralph Lauren and Tapestry; European luxury groups Chanel, Hermès International, Prada, Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani and Burberry, and Asia-based Fung Group.

Shaq Loves Big Guys, Hates Super Teams

The retired NBA star, who played for the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, Heat, Suns and Cavaliers during his 19-year Hall of Fame career, is now a sports analyst for “Inside the NBA” on TNT, an actor, real estate developer and businessman. But it was in his role as the big and tall style ambassador for J.C. Penney that brought O’Neal to New York Monday night. He’s had a collection of big and tall men’s wear with the retailer, called Shaquille O’Neal XLG, for just under a year, and this spring, partnered with the store and Wilhelmina modeling agency to host a model search. The three winners — Chukwukere “A.K.” Ekeh, Ricardo “Ricky” Vichot and Jordan Alexander “Alex” Cochran — are featured in the Penney’s fall campaign for the collection and have been signed to Wilhelmina’s Titan division of big and tall models. Prior to a panel discussion, O’Neal sat down with WWD to discuss what it’s like finding clothes when you’re 7-feet, 1-inch, 325 pounds, how he thinks the Reebok brand has been diluted since being owned by Adidas, and his distaste for NBA “super teams.” WWD: You’re wearing your XLG suit, shirt

The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds. The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono. From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far. Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019 Gucci fall 2018  Aitor Rosas Su–Ž/WWD Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface. The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

Celine Blends Genders with New Perfumes By Hedi Slimane

MAKING SCENTS: Elaborating on its latest Instagram tease, Celine has offered new details of its perfume launch — the first by Hedi Slimane for the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned house. Drawing on the designer’s androgynous perspective, the 11 scents are meant for both men and women, carrying touches of tree moss, iris, rose or chypre. In line with designer’s penchant for full command, they are also meant to reflect Slimane’s personal history. “These perfumes distill the reminiscences of a moment, a place or people dear to the couturier,” the brand said in a statement. All of the new scents carry the designer’s “powdery olfactory signature,” according to the label, which describes it as an “enveloping and sophisticated patina” that is “prolonged by the elegance of a couture residual trail, capturing a fleeting memory and emotion as it wafts by.” This is not Slimane’s first foray in the perfume business. In 2004, the designer drew up a trio of Maison Christian Dior perfumes, a first since the house was founded in 1947. Nine of the new Celine fragrances will be available in the fall: Parade, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Dans Paris, Cologne Française, La Peau Nue and Eau de Californie, which are meant for day, as well

Polo Creating Sustainable Uniforms for U.S. Open

Polo Ralph Lauren is mixing it up a bit for the U.S. Open Tennis tournament this year. The brand, which has been the official outfitter of the tournament since 2005, has reimagined the ball person uniforms it creates to be made from recycled materials. This is another indicator of the company’s push toward sustainability, which includes using 170 million recycled plastic bottles in its products and packaging by 2025 and convert the use of virgin poly-fiber to recycled poly-fiber throughout its supply chain by 2025. The 2019 U.S. Open Ball Person’s uniform — a Polo shirt, short or skort — will be made from yarn derived from seven recycled plastic bottles and the fabric will have performance features such as stretch and moisture-wicking properties. In addition, Polo Ralph Lauren will be collecting plastic tennis ball cans in partnership with Wilson at this year’s tournament and they will be made into the fabric for the 2020 Ball Person uniform. Over the course of the tournament, the company expects approximately 12,000 cans will be collected and recycled. In addition to the official uniforms for the ball people, the company has created a collection of off-court styles inspired by the Polo Sport brand from the Nineties. The
