    Montgomery County becomes first US county to ban discrimination based on natural hairstyles Maryland’s Montgomery County is the first county in the United States to pass legislation banning discrimination based upon a person’s natural hairstyle. The Montgomery County Council voted unanimously for the bill that prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, taxi service and other public accommodations. A person who is discriminated against can seek a civil penalty of up to $5,000 through the county’s Office of Human Rights. “It will expand the definition of race to include natural hairstyles, like Afros, twists, Bantu knots, and protective hair styles like braids,...

    New York Magazine's The Cut ^ | October 14, 2019 | Sarah Spellings
    Next week, Donald Trump will go to the small town of Keene, Texas, and cut the ribbon on a brand-new, 100,000-square-foot Louis Vuitton workshop called the Louis Vuitton Rochambeau Ranch. It’s an unlikely location for the Parisian house to open a workshop, for sure. The president will tour the workshop and give a speech about job creation, a White House official confirmed with the Fort Worth Star Telegram. LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault and more than 150 Louis Vuitton employees will join Trump, Ivanka and Jared Kushner, and former Texas governor Rick Perry at the ribbon cutting. Why did Louis Vuitton...

    Melania Trump is taking on the animal-print trend. The first lady posed on Instagram yesterday at the groundbreaking of the White House’s new tennis pavilion clad in a pair of snakeskin Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. Melania teamed her heels with a chic coat dress as she posed with a shovel next to the construction site. The shoes were an unsurprising choice: the former model has favored BB pumps for all occasions throughout husband Donald Trump’s presidency. Named after the French actress Brigitte Bardot and created more than 10 years ago, the BB boasts a 4-inch stiletto heel, a pointed toe...

    44's wardrobe passes the litmus test for a third term Heads were scratched when George W. Bush rode to a second term in 2004. Despite Iraq, and despite having the linguistic capability of a GCSE creative writing class, the 43rd president clung onto another four years. That's because, allegedly, he was the man most voters would prefer to have a beer with: 57 percent of them according to a Zogby/Williams poll in the autumn of that year. And though his time in the White House is up, Barack Obama is still dressing the part of post-office beer buddy, too. At...

    When Eve, a 15-year-old from Maryland saw Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka speaking at the Republican National Convention in 2016, she immediately took a liking to her. Admiring how poised she was while addressing the audience, Eve started an Instagram account dedicated to the famous first daughter called “AlwaysIvanka.” The account caught fire instantly, and in the days after Trump became president, it gained more than 10,000 followers, including the first daughter herself. Over the course of the next six months, Eve noticed how little coverage First Lady Melania Trump was garnering for her work in the White House. So she...

    American fashion brand Bstroy has received fierce criticism on social media after displaying school shooting-themed hoodies at a show during New York Fashion Week. The brand's spring/summer 2020 collection, designed by Brick Owens and Duey Catorze, featured distressed hoodies reading "Stoneman Douglas," "Sandy Hook," "Virginia Tech" and "Columbine," the sites of four of the deadliest school shootings in the US. Photos from the show posted on the brand's Instagram account, as well as Owens' account, quickly drew outrage, with some commenters identifying themselves as survivors or relatives of victims. On a photo of the Stoneman Douglas hoodie, one person commented,...

    The White House fired back after social media users criticized first lady Melania Trump over a coat she wore in a photo tweeted by President Trump on Wednesday to mark the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, who previously worked with the first lady, told USA Today it was "ridiculous" that some Twitter users called the coat insensitive. Some Twitter users noted that the trim on the back of the first lady's coat appeared to resemble a skyscraper with a smaller object hovering nearby, which some said resembled the images of the World Trade...

    “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” It’s advice we’ve all likely heard at some point throughout our careers. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve written it in the pages of a magazine at least once in the near decade I’ve worked in fashion. The thinking goes as follows: If you want your bosses to see you as someone who can take on more authority, you need to act that way. Part of that demonstration is in how you present yourself. For thin women, it’s good advice. I can still recall the outfits I wore to...

Hillary looked like she was in vacation fashion in her striped shirt dress, which she paired with a sporty white sunhat and dark sunglasses.

    Bonjour, FLOTUS! Melania Trump arrived Saturday in France wearing one of her brightest ensembles yet. The first lady — disembarking from Air Force One in the city of Biarritz with President Donald Trump for the G7 summit, where he'll convene with world leaders — looked radiant in a tie-dye midi dress from Calvin Klein. The canary yellow smock, priced at $530.16 according to Net-a-Porter, is made from denim and features white and pink scalloped patterns that resemble flowers, blossoming at the right shoulder and the opposite hip. Melania completed her look with oversized sunglasses and bright pink stiletto heels, which...

    The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is canceled, according to model Shanina Shaik. “Unfortunately the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year,” Shaik said of the show, which has run for over 20 years, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph published on Tuesday. “It’s something I’m not used to because every year around this time I’m training like an Angel.” Victoria’s Secret didn’t immediately return HuffPost’s request for comment. “But I’m sure in the future something will happen, which I’m pretty sure about. I’m sure they’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because...

    Banning Discrimination Of Hairstyle Will Make California The First State To Do So by: True Activist Posted on July 6, 2019 The CROWN act, an acronym for “Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural hair”, is expected to be signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom, making the state the first ever to ban discrimination based on hair style. Hair styles included in the bill sent to the governor include Afros, braids, twists, and locks. “ The history of our nation is riddled with laws and societal norms that equated ‘blackness’ and the associated physical traits, for example,...

    Jackie Kennedy Onassis would “never have entered the country illegally to become an escort and never would have considered spending a moment with vile trash like Trump,” one critic tweets President Trump sparked angry criticism on Friday, this time by comparing his wife, Melania, to former first lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis during a “Fox & Friends” interview. The president made the comparison while talking about his decision to switch the paint job on Air Force One, which has been around since the early 1960s. “You know the baby blue doesn’t fit with us,” Trump said. “It was Jackie O and...

Christophel Fine Art/UIG via Getty ImagesIn 1463, London outlawed the shoes of its fanciest men. These dapper lords had grown ridiculous in their dapperness, and had taken to ambling streets shod in long, carrot-shaped shoes that tapered to impish tips, some as long as five inches beyond the toe. These shoes were called “crakows” or “poulaines” (a...

    After commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Portsmouth, England, on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made their way to France for today’s ceremony marking the Normandy landings. Joining French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, the Trumps paid tribute to service members from both countries who battled against Nazi soldiers in World War II. After the commemorative ceremony, including speeches by both of the presidents, and a viewing at the Normandy American Cemetery, there was a military fly-over at Omaha Beach. POTUS was then off to Calvados in France for a working lunch and...

Mrs. Trump emerged from yesterday’s iconic fashion statement (A custom white hat by her personal couturier Hervé Pierre! Gasp!) in a red wool crepe gown by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller — a Brit, herself, and the first female creative director at the Parisian fashion house who famously designed Meghan Markle’s wedding gown.

    Melania Trump put reports of a 'public argument' with her husband firmly behind her on Wednesday morning, when she held her husband's hand in a simple display of intimacy as they couple returned from a trip to Atlanta for a drug abuse summit. The 48-year-old looked incredibly chic in a $2,300 white-and-black polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich as she and her husband walked across the White House lawn hand-in-hand, with Melania taking advantage of the warm spring weather and going without the stylish white coat she had been wearing in the morning.
