Naomi Campbell Called on Some Very Famous Friends For Her Fashion For Relief Show

Naomi Campbell has taken her Fashion for Relief runway show all over the world, to major cities like New York City and Cannes, Moscow and Mumbai. But this year the legendary model brought the annual fundraising event back to her native London, taking over the British Museum in Bloomsbury, because if you’re Naomi Campbell, you get to go big and go home.

Started in 2005, Campbell’s Fashion for Relief charity gala has helped raise millions of dollars for a variety of good causes, whether that’s in the form of disaster relief after climate-related events like Hurricane Katrina and the earthquakes in Haiti, to humanitarian efforts including mental health and the fight against Ebola. Most recently, Fashion for Relief has joined forces with Save the Children in an effort to provide food, shelter, and medical treatment to children in need around the world. And for her homecoming 2019 show — in addition to being sponsored by Chrome Hearts and Gucci — Campbell has partnered with both the Mayor’s Fund for London and UNICEF to raise money for disadvantaged children in London and across the UK.

Per usual, the charitable catwalk show was a star-studded event both on and off the runway. Backstage, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hairstylist Johnnie Sapong were in charge of dreaming up the rock ‘n roll-inspired beauty looks for the models to wear down on the catwalk. As for who those models were? The 60-plus cast list featured top British catwalkers Stella Maxwell, Leomie Anderson, and Erin O’Connor, as well as model-of-the-moment Adut Akech and various British artists and influencers.

In addition to Campbell’s mom (who stopped backstage for a little pre-show zhuzhing), rapper Eve, British Vogue editor in chief Edward Enniful, and actress Naomie Harris were among the guests sitting front row and attending the post-auction dinner — all of whom took the opportunity to break out their most glamorous attire.

Gary Neville rips into ‘weeds’ and ‘trash’ in dressing room as he urges Man Utd to give Solskjaer time to use transfer windows – The Sun

CLASS OF 92 star Gary Neville has ripped into the current Manchester United dressing room – calling Red Devils players "weeds" and "trash".

The 44-year-old right-back-turned pundit believes that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs "three to four transfer windows to clear up the trash in the dressing room".

Saturday's 1-0 triumph over Leicester was just United's fourth win in their last 14 matches stretching back to last season – but Norwegian outlet TV2 report that Neville said: "He should get the transfer window in January, into the summer and next season.

"Then there has to be a progression, you have to see improvement, but look at Jurgen Klopp. It took four years before he won anything, but it started to get better after 12 months.

"It is a young team, and I as a Manchester United supporter believe he should get this and next season."

The Sky Sports pundit and commentator then laid into the character of the United squad: "Give him three to four transfer windows to clean up the trash in the dressing room, because there is trash in there. You have to weed out the weeds, and that's not his fault.

"He has to create his winning team, but it takes time. Liverpool have gone 30 years without winning the Premier League, so it's not that fantastic anywhere. This will take time."

Neville didn't name which players he was referring to – but has been critical of certain United stars in the past.

Speaking on the Gary Neville podcast, he accused Anthony Martial of having "not realised his potential on the left side for three or four years".

He was also extremely critical of Paul Pogba after the Frenchman's penalty miss against Wolves last month.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first summer in charge saw a number of departures from Old Trafford – with the likes of Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Romelu Lukaku, Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez all being allowed to leave the club.

Despite the number of players that left, Solskjaer was only able to bring in three players – albeit spending well over £100million in the process.

United have eight points from their opening five matches – and next face Astana at Old Trafford in the Europa League.

'Vanderpump Rules' Cast: What Does Jax Taylor Think of New Co-Stars?

Jax Taylor from Vanderpump Rules always says what’s on his mind. The Bravo star is not holding back his words on his new co-stars for Season 8, which will also see his marriage to Brittany Cartwright. In a recent interview, the bartender said he’s not really close to the new castmates.

“I’ve only hung out with one of them; the other ones are extremely young, very naive to the whole situation,” he told Hollywood Life. “To me, some of them seem a little thirsty.”

The seasoned veteran of the reality show did have kind words for a particular new cast member.

“The one guy that I do really like is Brett. I think he’s an amazing guy. He’s a hard worker, he’s comfortable around all of us. It’s a very tough group to break in to, our group,” Taylor revealed.

Fans of the show know that getting in with the core group is difficult as they are really tight, something Taylor acknowledged during the same interview.

“We don’t really allow new people to come in, just because we have such a history of all of us,” he said. “And we have a lot of just…we’re very close and we just don’t like people kind of breaking into our circle, because we just don’t know what their intentions are. It’s nothing personal against these people, it’s just, we like our group the way it is.” 

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright face divorce rumors

Shortly after tying the knot, Taylor and his wife faced divorced rumors, which only grew stronger after he was spotted without his wedding band.

“I think the majority of men don’t always wear their ring when they’re at the gym, when they’re out, when they’re riding their cooler down Ventura Boulevard,” Scheana Shay told Hollywood Life referencing the photos of Taylor without his wedding band. “I mean, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It’s not like he’s out at a nightclub partying with bottle service girls, not wearing a ring. He was riding a cooler down in Valley Village.”

Cartwright also released a statement following the rumors debunking all the negativity around her marriage.

“We have to laugh about stuff because, I mean, there are articles saying that our marriage is in trouble and stuff like that. I’m just like, ‘Oh my goodness,’” she told Us Weekly. “We have been so solid. I don’t even worry about it because as long as we’re happy and we’re doing good, that’s all that matters, you know?”

As for married life with Taylor, Cartwright added: “Married life is awesome. I think we’ve settled in very well. I’m just so excited. I love Jax so much so everything’s been going great. Hopefully, we’ll be able to have a family and stuff. We’re doing great. We are very, very, very happy right now.”

Lisa Vanderpump is set to be more present

With Lisa Vanderpump having one less show to promote her entrepreneurial efforts after quitting The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, sources say she will be expanding her presence on Vanderpump Rules.

“Lisa is excited to be featured more on this season of Vanderpump Rules,” a close source told Hollywood Life. “At first, she was deciding what to do about returning to Housewives so she didn’t want to film for Vanderpump Rules at the same time, however, once the decision was made to quit [RHOBH], she couldn’t wait to be featured on camera more.”

“[Vanderpump] was hanging out with the cast much more, wanted to be included in the trips, showing up to events, etc. You will be seeing a lot more Lisa next season now that she’s got more time to film with the ‘kids’ as she calls them,” the insider added.

The Ashes: Warner ends series with average of just 9.5 as Broad dismisses vilified Australia batsman for SEVENTH time in final innings of series – The Sun

DAVID WARNER ended his Ashes series with an horrific average of just 9.5 as Stuart Broad dismissed the vilified Australian batsman for the SEVENTH time.

The controversial opener, 32, reached double figures just twice and made his first-ever pair of ducks in the Fourth Test at Old Trafford in his appalling summer.


Broad had Warner's number all series, getting him out seven times across his ten innings.

The batsman – only recently back in the Test arena following his ban for his role in the sandpaper scandal – nicked Broad behind for 11, his second-highest score of the series, on Sunday.

Warner had only made five in the first innings, as England set Australia 399 to win, on the back of scores of 2, 8, 3, 5, 61, 0, 0, 0 in the first four Tests.

That meant he scored just 95 runs from his ten innings in the Ashes series – good for an average of just 9.5.

ON THE EDGE

And fans were quick to poke fun at the pantomime villain, with the Barmy Army ripping into him on Twitter with a brutal gag.

They tweeted an image of someone pretending to sell Warner's Spartan bat on eBay – captioned: "NEVER USED – David Warner's bat from 2019 Ashes tour."

Someone quickly replied: "Pffft… brand new. The f***ing edges are worn out."

Another concurred: "Middle is immaculate, edges well used."

Most dismissals of one batsmen in a series

David Warner by Stuart Broad – Australia vs England – 2019

Moeen Ali by Nathan Lyon – England vs Australia – 2017-18

Michael Atherton by Glenn McGrath – England vs Australia – 1997

David Gower by Geoff Lawson – England vs Australia – 1989

Trevor Goddard by Brian Statham – South Africa vs England – 1960

Jack Siedle by Clarrie Grimmett – South Africa vs Australia – 1935-36

A third fan went even further, poking fun of Warner's recent scandal, writing: "Edges are a bit scuffed, nothing some good sandpapering won't fix."

It was also quickly pointed out that England spinner Jack Leach boasted a better batting average this series at 13.5 – and even faced just one ball fewer than Warner, despite batting in the tail.

Warner's most recent dismissal left Australia languishing on 29-2 – after Broad bowled Marcus Harris for just 9 as the visitors chased 399 to win the Fifth Test.

The Aussies will retain the famous urn even if they lose at The Oval, leading 2-1 going into the game in London – with a draw enough to seal the Ashes thanks to their win Down Under in 2017-18.

The Most Profound 'Bojack Horseman' Episodes So Far

Bojack Horseman is hilarious. It’s satire of Hollywood continues to poke fun at celebrities and egos. The animal puns are good too. There’s more to Bojack Horseman than jokes though and it probably wouldn’t have lasted five seasons on celebrity animals alone. Bojack Horseman is deep. Bojack (Will Arnett) deals with depression, addictions, anxieties and insecurities.

Those themes are always under the surface of a Bojack Horseman episode. Some episode really highlight just how profound the show can be. These are the five most profound episodes of Bojack Horseman so far, and this will include spoilers from those episodes just in case you’re not caught up yet Maybe this will finally be the year Bojack Horseman wins the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program..

Bojack Horseman delivers a eulogy

After a rocky, volatile relationship, Bojack’s mother Beatrice (Wendie Malick) passed away. Bojack gave her eulogy and the entire episode “Free Churro” was his speech.

Bojack makes some funny asides and there’s a funny twist at the end, but this episode is about forcing him to talk about his mother. Bojack himself may not have answers but this is as close as Bojack will get to being honest about his feelings.

Princess Caroline sends ‘Thoughts and Prayers’

Courtney Portnoy (Sharon Horgan) has a new action movie where she plays a badass female heroine, but a mass shooting makes it inappropriate to release right now. So they delay the movie, and then there’s another mass shooting that makes it the wrong time for Portnoy’s movie. They delay it again and it keeps happening. All Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris) can do is offer thoughts and prayers.

This episode was made even before Death Wish got delayed (it still came out right after Parkland) and The Hunt got cancelled. It was prescient that this is only going to keep happening.

Bojack Horseman sabotages Sarah Lynn’s Sobriety

Sarah Lynn (Kristen Schaal) was another tragic character in Bojack’s life. She was a child star on Horsin’ Around and like many child stars, she did not have a healthy adjustment when the show ended. She succumbed to drugs as an adult.

But in season 3, Sarah Lynn got sober, until Bojack got her high again. Their final bender in “That’s Too Much, Man” ends in Sarah Lynn overdosing, showing how dangerous Bojack can be for vulnerable people. He’d always been a jerk but this is when it got real.

Bojack Horseman underwater

The landmark episode “Fish Out of Water” really showed what animation could do. Bojack attends a film festival underwater so he can’t talk. It’s visually profound how they could do a whole episode without dialogue and convey plot and emotion entirely with images. Verbal communication is out, and so are many of Bojack’s crutches like drinking and smoking. 

He has an epic adventure involving delivering seahorse babies. The sheer pressure of keeping a baby safe exacerbated in underwater caves and factories but the rules are different because he’s underwater. Heights aren’t a danger because he floats. The water and fish thwart Bojack’s attempt to apologize to the director he got fired from Secretariat, which would have been a huge step for him. Even doing the right thing gets harder and harder.

Inside Bojack Horseman’s mom’s memory

Beatrice Horseman was complicated figure in Bojack’s life. They never had a loving relationship, and near the end she had dementia so became dependent on Bojack, with no memory of how badly she’d treated him. She also began mistaking him for Henrietta.

“Time’s Arrow” delved back into Beatrice’s memories and who Henrietta was to her. It also represented her fractured memory so Henrietta’s face was scratched out. Blending time, fragile memory and empathy, “Time’s Arrow” may be the most devastating episode of Bojack Horseman.

Fen Tiger 'bigger than Labrador with huge neck' spotted stalking Suffolk village

THE elusive Fen Tiger has been spotted stalking a Suffolk village after three decades of rumours and sightings.

The creature – bigger than a Labrador with a huge neck – was seen in Ipswich just this week as the legend around its existence continues.

Sightings of the big cat, dubbed the Fen Tiger, have been coming in thick and fast since 1982, but not many people have managed to snap a photo.

And Jamie Newby said he couldn't believe his eyes when he zoomed his camera in on the mysterious creature.

He said he and his partner Hayley spotted the cat about 6.30am and around 400 yards away from their AirBnB in Ipswich, Suffolk.

The 46-year-old, from Wisbech, Cambs., told Cambridgeshire Live: "My girlfriend spotted it at first as she opened the curtains 6.30am of our the Airbnb bedroom we were staying in.

"At first she thought it was maybe a small deer. So I grabbed my camera as we'd like to have caught a picture of it.

"But as soon as the camera focused, I could see it was a very large cat – about the size of medium sized dog.

BIG CAT MYSTERY: The Fen Tiger

The Fen Tiger has become the stuff of legend after dozens of sightings over 30 years.

According to reports, the animal appears to be some kind of large feline that has stalked the area around Cambridgeshire.

One of the first sightings was in 1982 in Cottenham, Cambs, with locals reporting everything from a large cheetah to a 'brown-coloured beast' seen slinking in the grass.

At one point, 12 baby rabbits reportedly died from fright after a creature ripped open their hutch in Milton.

In another incident, a wild cat was caught on camera in 1994.

And in 1994, school children were warned to keep inside after builders reported seeing the legendary Fen Tiger.

But despite the dozens of reports, we are seemingly little closer to finding out exactly what the Fen Tiger is, or where it came from.


"It had a very powerful build on its upper, haunches it had vertical black stripes could only really see the root of the tail for most of the sighting but the tail was long and looked thick."

The footage shows the large cat sitting in the grass before shaking its head.

It can then be seen walking through the grass and sitting up to attention.

And Jamie claimed his camera's memory card shut off before it could capture the moment the animal appeared to "pounce" on its prey.

Local legend has it that the animal has been prowling around Cambridgeshire for more than three decades, with speculation it is now making its way to Suffolk.

The big cat, dubbed the Fen Tiger, was first spotted in 1982 – sparking dozens of sightings since then.

Residents called police 63 times from 1998 to 2010 about the mysterious creature and dozens of reports have been recorded since.

In the past five years alone, police have received eleven calls to reports of a Fen Tiger.At one point, a Cambridge University zoologist examined video footage in 1994, saying it appeared to be a 3ft-high puma , leopard or jaguar.

Strike looming for General Motors workers

The United Auto Workers union and General Motors remain far apart in ongoing negotiations in Detroit, raising the likelihood of a midnight strike, sources told The Post on Saturday night.

UAW leaders are negotiating with GM at the Detroit Marriott, but have reached an “impasse” on health care, according to one source close to the UAW.

The union isn’t likely to postpone a strike past the midnight deadline, when the current four-year contract will expire, because the sides are so far apart on the issue of healthcare, the source said.

Healthcare “is the aspect that has bridged the greatest divide,” the source said.

Another area where there’s an impasse is job security.

“Job security remains an issue as it relates to possible plant closures,” the source said.

“While we are fighting for better wages, affordable quality health care, and job security, GM refuses to put hard working Americans ahead of their record profits,” union Vice President Terry Dittes said in a statement Saturday night.

General Motors spokesman Patrick Morrissey said in a statement, “We continue to work hard on solutions to some very difficult challenges.

“We are prepared to negotiate around the clock because there are thousands of GM families and their communities– and many thousands more at our dealerships and suppliers – counting on us for their livelihood. Our goal remains on building a strong future for our employees and our business.”
