Most Fashionable, Stylish Celebrity Kids Photos


We have our go-to roster of stylish celebrities who we look to for outfit inspo: Kendall Jenner, the Hadid sisters, Zendaya. But let’s admit it: After awhile, seeing the same twenty-somethings rock the same (albeit, very cool) street style trends day in and out gets a little tiresome. That’s why we’ve widened our spectrum to include more than just what the hottest “It Girls” in fashion and entertainment are wearing these days. Believe it or not, some of the coolest looks are worn by celebrities who care less about fashion houses like Chanel and Versace and more about the houses on “Sesame Street.”

With parents like Kim KardashianBeyoncé, and Chrissy Teigen, it’s no wonder that celebrity kids like North West, Blue Ivy, and Luna are some of the best-dressed tots around. Considering who their parents are, these kids’ closets are likely filled with designer goods you won’t be able to help but drool over, no matter how old you are.

Ahead, take a peek at 25 stylish celebrity kids who probably definitely have a better fashion sense than all of us.

10 Celebrities Who Were Turned Away from Hot Nightclubs


Have you ever been thwarted in your attempt to get into a popular nightspot, standing there thinking, “If only I was a big celebrity, there’d be no problem at all.” Well, it might make you feel better to know that it might still be a problem. In the following cases, an array of famous names were denied admission for a variety of reasons ranging from door stupidity to the celebs’ overdone sense of entitlement to just plain overcrowding.

NILE RODGERS AND BERNARD EDWARDS

In the 1970s, Studio 54 was the ultimate glitzy, star-studded disco, one where icons like Warhol, Halston, and Capote were swept into the entrance for a glittery evening of dance and schmooze. But Rodgers and Edwards—from the disco group Chic—didn’t impress the door help enough to gain entry. And that turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to them! They spun their rejection into the smash Chic song “Le Freak.” The original refrain, aimed at the doormen, was “Aaa, fuck off,” but they changed it to “Aaa, freak out”, and it shot to #1, becoming one of the disco era’s most identifiable hits. To add to their comfort, Henry Winkler–a huge star at the time, due to playing the Fonz on Happy Days–was also turned away. Aaa!

CHER

When it opened on 14th Street in 1986, Nell’s became a popular destination for clubbies, yuppies, and celebs. But the ageless singer/actor/celebrity Cher was not in the mix, primarily because the doof manning the door at the time had no idea who she was! But that actually ended up being good for the club because all the press about “the place that’s too snooty to care about Cher” put it hugely on the map. Reportedly, Don Johnson (who was big from TV’s Miami Vice) was also refused entry. And he was starting fashion trends!


PAUL SIMON

Opening in 1978, the Mudd Club was an out-of-the-way, fabulously divey haven for skinny-tied new wavers and stars like David Bowie, Debbie Harry, and Diana Ross. But the club’s doorman, Richard Boch, told me for Papermag that he refused to let renowned rocker Paul Simon into its hallowed doors. Boch describes Simon as “a total asshole. A heroic songwriter, but an awful human being.” Boch says Simon was obnoxious and dared to lavish him with that all-too-familiar celebrity remark: “Do you know who I am?” Boch did and didn’t care in the least, responding with “the sounds of silence.”


DAVID LEE ROTH

The Van Halen member actually did get into the ’80s after-hours club AM-PM, but he almost didn’t. As the club’s doorman, Aleph Ashline, told me for Papermag, “He was such an incredible dick. He was drunk, he thought he was king of the world, and he pushed people aside” to get to the door. Unlike Boch with Paul Simon, Ashline had no idea who the hell David Lee Roth was and had to be filled in by others. He also was eventually convinced by someone to let the guy in, though the club’s manager later came out and irritatedly said he shouldn’t have. Agreed!


AMBER HEARD, CARA DELEVINGNE, AND MARGOT ROBBIE

This glam threesome was turned away from a London strip club called SophistiCats last year, when they were on the town, jointly celebrating Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp. Was the doorperson just plain idiotic? No, reports had it that the club was full and Delevingne was quite vocal about not wanting to wait on line or pay admission. “Don’t you know who we are?” she reportedly declared, invoking the world’s oldest cliché [a la Paul Simon]. I’m glad the door help seems to have replied, “Maybe, but who cares!”


PAUL MCCARTNEY AND BECK

Last year, the L.A. club Argyle was the site of a Grammy after-party hosted by Tyga (the rapper famous for dating Kylie Jenner). Paul McCartney and friends showed up and were summarily shown the hand. Turning away a Beatle and a Sir and a multi Grammy winner? And his entourage happened to include Beck, a previous winner for Album of the Year! Relax. The place was supposedly at capacity, and fire marshals wouldn’t allow anyone else to come in, even those two. And McCartney had a great attitude about the incident, joking, “How VIP do we gotta get? We need another hit.”

Celebrities to cheer for their charities


CHAMPION SUPPORT FOR CHARITY: Kevin Lerena will cheer for the Animal Anti Cruelty League, Johan Etchell, as they will have one of the favourites on the day, Hat Puntano, running for them.

THE race is on for the 2017 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile in which the strongest field of 16 horses will run for their charities to earn them a part of the whopping prize money of R1-million.

Last year’s winner, New Predator and also Hat Puntano, have been given the top weight of 61kg for the Grade Two Charity Mile R1-m race at Turffontein racecourse on Saturday and will be amongst the field to run for their charities.

The draw for the Charity Mile took place at Emperors Palace on October 25 and paired the celebrities, horses, charities and media partners.

The format boasts 16 horses paired with 16 celebrities, charities and media partners with the Grade Two R1-m paid out according to the finishing positions of the horses to the various charities on the day.

CAXTON EAST NEWSPAPERS SUPPORT: Some of the 16 celebrities who will cheer along for their horses to win big for them are Batsile Ramasodi (champion trainer), Sean Tarry, Kevin Lerena, Kim Jayde Robinson and Neil Andrews.

Supporting the common goal for those less fortunate are Caxton South and East newspapers who will be cheering on for their charities together with the 16 celebrities.

The day sees celebrities dressed to the nines at the rail to cheer home their particular horse. Each celebrity represents a horse in the Charity Mile and the horses’ finishing positions in the Grade Two race determine what portion of R1-m goes to their respective charities.

The first horse crossing the finishing line will earn R150 000 for the charity linked to him, second prize is R100 000, third R80 000, fourth R70 000 and from fifth to last position (16th) all the charities will receive R50 000.

The Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile also forms part of the Summer In The City which means a host of fantastic days at the racecourse which culminates in the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup, the jewel in Johannesburg racing’s crown at the end of November.

CAXTON SOUTH MEDIA SUPPORT: Caxton South newspapers will support their charities on race-day having Kevin Lerena, Princess Khanye, Johan Etchell and Jakes de Lange cheering along for their respective horses on race day.

The Charity Mile race-day also offers the perfect opportunity to show off some of the finest fashions and trends this summer. There is no particular theme to think of which means anything goes as far as your interpretation of a day at the races is concerned.

Alberton Record’s charity is Welamlambo Primary. The celebrity Thandi Matlaila and Irish Pride will be on course to race for them.

Comaro Chronicle will be the media partner for San Michele Home and Liteboho Molise as celebrity and has Top Shot as their racehorse.

Southern Courier is media partner for Reahile Primary with Katlego Maboe as celebrity and Go Direct will race for them.

Benoni City Times has Grade R programme as their charity and Chris Forrest will cheer on Bezanova.

Germiston City News will support Khangezile Primary and Kamo Modisakeng as celebrity having Finchatton on the racecourse.

Boksburg Advertiser has Star School to support and Breyton Paulse their celebrity and Mac de Lago on course for them.

5 Super-Easy Halloween Costumes That Are Way Smarter Than Anything Anyone Else Is Doing


For every Wonder Woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or Eleven from Stranger Things costume you see this Halloween, there are likely to be 10 more at the next party. If you’re racking your brain for a clever idea, but you also (like any clever person) have procrastinated yourself into costume crisis mode, we’re here for you. All you need to tap in to the 2017 zeitgeist is probably already in your closet, a thrift shop, or party supply store. We came up with five of this year’s most ubiquitous trends that double as incredibly easy Halloween costumes.

637307574

Hygge
Last year’s top foreign lifestyle import hasn’t gone anywhere; hygge, the Nordic art of being cozy and adorable, is still a dominating force on Pinterests everywhere. Lucky for you, it’s also a very comfortable Halloween costume! Find a comfy sweater, preferably white and cable knit, wrap yourself in a sheepskin throw, and carry a mug. When people fill it with Halloween punch, make sure to say tak instead of thanks.

Instagram Influencer
Sponcon became a way of life this year for celebrity “whos” on their social media channels, especially on Instagram, where self-styled “influencers” don’t even have to be famous for anything else. (Posing against a brightly painted wall and hawking various lifestyle wares on your feed now constitutes its own very lucrative career.) Combine the most notorious #sponcon products into one costume, or as many as you can: Carry around a subscription box full of swag; nibble on some hair-health gummy bears; wear a waist trainer or corset and some aviator sunglasses. If you can wear a #spon or #ad sign, then we’ll know you’ve been paid for your endorsement.

Unicorn Toast
Topping off the lifestyle trends, unicorn toast was a whimsical if strange addition to the overhead-food-photography trend, prompting praise and disgust alike. A unicorn toast costume just needs, of course, a unicorn horn, an outfit with bright, iridescent colors, some sparkly jewelry, and a willingness to carry around some toast with you all night. You’ll never go hungry, unlike Instagram food photographers who have to take pictures before they can eat.

493656728

Throuple From “Disloyal Boyfriend” Meme
You surely saw this meme make the rounds this year, in which “disloyal boyfriend” is caught by “angry girlfriend” looking at “another girl.” The best thing about these costumes is how easy they are: All you need is a red shirt, a blue plaid shirt, and another blue shirt. You can all wear whatever you want on the bottom, since the famous stock photo cuts off each person at the waist. Master Another Girl’s plaintive smile, Disloyal Boyfriend’s whistling up-down look, and Angry Girlfriend’s indignation, then take a photo and you’re set for the night.

Sex and the City 3 Undead Zombies
We can’t stop talking about the Sex and the City 3 movie that never was. There are always plenty of Samanthas, Carries, Mirandas, and Charlottes every year, but will there be zombie versions stomping around on Halloween night? Hopefully yes, if many, many people take our advice. Find your perfect SATC outfit and zombie-fy it with a cheap makeup kit—then tell everyone that we will never not be talking about this freaking movie.

11 Radio industry trends of 11 years that shaped up the radio space

Guest Column: 11 Radio industry trends of 11 years that shaped up the radio space

The dynamics of consuming entertainment has changed over the years. Television, print, music apps, radio, all the mediums have undergone a transition with the changing times. In the face of radio’s growing popularity, players across categories have been working up the ladder by being relevant yet distinctive with their offerings. Being at the helm of a radio network since its inception, I have not only observed the progression of this industry but also have been an active participant by challenging fundamentals, adopting innovation and contributing to the medium’s growth. Today, radio stands tall with respect to its reach and the power of spreading information. It is no more just a means of entertainment but a world full of possibilities. This profile of radio as an imperative piece of mass-communication and entertainment has been built over the years. Here’s looking back at those 11 trends that shaped up the radio industry through the last 11 years.

Expansion of Private FM stations to Tier – II and Tier- III cities

Post the 1991 reform, private radio stations came into existence mainly in metro cities. A decade later, the number of private FM stations across the country flourished so much so that today we stand at a total of over 240 radio stations in India. The government upon realising the reach and effectiveness of this media has consciously made efforts to have its presence in remotest of towns and villages. Now, the frequencies reach out to people in the farthest corner of the nation, where other means of communication and connectivity might still be non-existent.

When marketers realised the potential of radio stations
Earlier, the most preferred platform for brands to place their advertisements was print and television. With the advent of private FM stations reaching out to the people in urban and rural sector, the ad spends on radio has witnessed an upward trend. As per the Madison Advertising Outlook 2017, radio advertising constitutes to 3.6 percent of the total advertising pie in India. Even in the digital age, where most ad campaigns are gaining popularity through social media platforms, radio stands strong in terms of effective ad campaigns with a high recall value and expansive reach.

The power of audio in being a changemaker
From being a medium of entertainment to getting real-time updates, radio has become a strong voice for social causes. Through constructive communication, meaningful brand associations and stronger connect with the RJs, radio players along with being vocal about raising awareness about issues in the society, also step ahead to actively work for the cause.
Initiating discussions and activities around eco-friendly concepts, educating the future generation about the need for water conversation and harmful effects of pollution, women empowerment, pothole issues, helping the needy and underprivileged through donation and many other social causes, have formed the core of private FM stations. Award-winning initiatives and RJs being honoured for taking up different initiatives, has added credibility to the radio’s power of being an enabler in bringing about positive changes in the society.

RJs – The new celebrities
When we say radio, what comes to our mind is tuning into a frequency and listening to a voice that captivates you through the show and music. While this continues even today, the connection with the RJs has evolved over time as listeners now want to know them by face value too. Today, radio is – listening to your favourite RJ with whom you can easily connect over Facebook live, meet them as contest winners and interact with them during on-ground activities. The popularity of RJs has risen to an extent that they are invited to participate in reality shows. The bond between an RJ and his audience is such that they happen to be much loved by the audiences even on other platforms. RJs enjoy a celebrity status and are recognised wherever they go, further bolstering radio’s popularity.

Celebrities turning RJs

One of the recent transformations that the radio industry has witnessed is the trend of established celebrities becoming RJs. Celebrities these days are connecting with their fans beyond the 20ft wide screen. Being an RJ is not an easy role to play. They have to be well informed. An RJ is required to connect with his listeners just through his voice, which emotes everything that they are feeling. This is an art in itself. Celebrities are putting themselves in the seat of an RJ and testing their mettle on this platform. Renowned artists like Annu Kapoor, Anu Malik, Anil Kapoor, Satish Kaushik, Salim Merchant among many others have successfully donned the hat of a radio jockey. The trend of celebrities becoming RJs has gripped the radio industry and it is here to stay.

Shows across different genres finding its way on Radio
At a time, when radio is compared closely with television as a preferred medium for infotainment, the show formats on radio have undergone a stark transformation with a view to maintaining its listenership. From mostly airing romance and humour based shows, the channels are now bringing different genres of shows that cater to different sets of audience. Interesting show formats including sports, folk culture, trivia, technicalities of music making and more, have opened a world of insightful entertainment while on-the-go. This has also paved way for advertisers to reach out to a different set of target audience through a single brand while gaining effective ROI.

Inclusion of different genre of music
While there is so much content easily available to consume across different platforms, playing only Bollywood music does not fulfill the listening demands of the millennials. Radio stations are playing different genres of music and bringing different artists on-board to stand in the face of competition. Retro music has continued to work well on radio followed by core Bollywood and regional music. The newer likable additions such as folk, Sufi-folk fusion, devotional, independent music have found a place on the radio as well. Moreover, we are going a step ahead by re-creating popular songs as well as creating original music by collaborating with independent artists. It would be safe to say, that radio stations do not mean just Bollywood music anymore, they are serving their promise of providing more music to the listeners through the inclusion of different music formats.

Radio-jockeying – From a part-time job to a career
When private FM stations came into being, radio jockeying was considered as a part-time job. People questioned the livelihood of RJs believing they aren’t really earning and should consider doing another job to become financially stable. Then, gradually came in the recognition of being an RJ. They have fans like celebrities do, their opinions are heard and their views make a difference. This made everyone notice the hard work that goes behind being an RJ. Fame, the responsibility of being an empowering voice behind a brand, the technicalities and the knowledge that one requires to be successful at radio jockeying have given it recognition as a career option. RJs have also turned into career advisors for people who are keen to become an RJ. The established RJs mentor them and get them acquainted with all the hard-work that goes behind their celebrity status.

Radio a platform for storytelling
Malgudi Days has often been referred to as the best stories showcased on Indian Television. Even after decades, the essence of those stories is still fresh in viewers’ minds. That’s the power of good storytelling. The AZ Research Report released last year, states that over 64% population listens to radio every day hence, it makes for a perfect platform to bring invigorating stories to the millions. Since less than a decade ago, radio shows transcended from romance based fictional and non-fictional stories to more inspirational stories about life. Such stories form a deeper connect with listeners and help them reconnect with their inner-self. We have brought differentiation in story-telling through formats in music and content with ‘Hit The Hit Rahenge’ and ‘Suhaana Safar with Annu Kapoor’ respectively. More importantly, the mantra of storytelling works best on the radio because of the soothing voice of an RJ along with the excellent storytelling skills, take listeners to a world of limitless imagination, these stories while invigorating the audience’s imagination, inspires them. This helps the radio station with establishing a strong connect with the audiences, who keep coming back for more refreshing tales.

Radio expanding in the digital arena
With the advent of the digital era, radio has expanded its footprint in this space to reach out to its extended target audience. From RJs enacting in contextual videos, bringing contests on social media, connecting with listeners through FB live for live polling on debatable topics, posting real-time local updates and much more, have successively brought radio, its shows and RJs much closer to the digital savvy population.

In addition to the 10 industry trends listed above, I must say, radio in itself is a trend that has shaped the radio industry the way it is today. It has become an influential medium reaching out to millions with a sense of purpose. While facing challenges from other mediums, radio has sustained itself in all its glory and continues to be the second fastest growing medium with a growth rate of 13.2 percent according to Madison Advertising Outlook 2017.

Ivanka Trump appears to be on a mission to try all of this season’s fashion trends


Melania Trump might be the First Lady of America but her step-daughter Ivanka also gets everyone talking about her style .

The businesswoman may have taken a step back from running her own fashion line but she still keeps her eyes on the catwalk trends, if her latest outfits are anything to go by.

The mum-of-three appears to be on a mission of late to try and nail as many of AW17’s key trends as possible – from checks to statement earrings.

Checks

No fashion blogger has been seen without a check jacket this autumn and Ivanka went for this tailored double-breasted version, £95.99 , by high street favourite Zara, for a press conference on child tax credits. Perhaps a tactical move to appear more relatable and down-to-earth?

Statement earrings

Big earrings are having a moment and Ivanka is renowned for her love of eye-catching jewellery. While her mismatched look caused a stir in Berlin this year, her spherical earrings from a recent press conference are much easier to pull off. Just avoid the Pat Butcher look.

Flared sleeves

Statement sleeves are here to stay this season and Ivanka went one step further with her colour block turtle-neck, £155 from Staud . She very sensibly teamed it with a muted pencil skirt and black courts.

The choker jumper

Although the choker top isn’t the most practical of trends, it’s one way to wrap up on a night out, while still looking glamorous. Ivanka opted for a more ladylike approach, teaming her pink knit with a floral skirt and black courts.

The wrap skirt

Ivanka seems to have finally discovered Zara’s separates range, teaming a £19.99 mustard pearl jumper with a £49.99 check wrap skirt . Whether it’s a mini or a pencil, the wrap skirt is a must-have for winter.

Must-have designer

And finally, anyone who can afford the price tags is bound to have a bit of Gucci in their wardrobe this season. To watch the solar eclipse in August, Ivanka stepped out in their pink and black scallop detail dress and managed to make the viewing glasses look chic.

Managing confidence in the markets may play a pivotal role when making tough investing decisions. Finding that perfect balance between the needed gusto and the correct amount of caution may help ease the burden moving forward in the equity market.
