Andre Iguodala can afford anything he wants now. Here’s what he wants from men’s fashion.

NEW YORK — The basketball player Andre Iguodala arrives for the Rochambeau spring menswear show and immediately causes a stir. It’s not the kind of frenetic chaos that greets Kardashians nor the awestruck screaming that accompanies a Beyoncé sighting. It is a low-grade fawning — cool dudes hanging back while casting an admiring glance his way. Like […]

Emmy nominations 2016: Live stream, complete list of nominees and instant analysis

And just like that, award season starts again. Thursday morning, Lauren Graham and Anthony Anderson will announce the Primetime Emmy Award nominations. So many questions, especially for the Emmy Awards in the era of peak TV: Will voters finally notice “The Americans”? Is this “Mr. Robot’s” time to shine? Will “The People v. O.J. Simpson” dominate […]

A Swede named Nils Sjöberg explains what happens when Taylor Swift uses your name

The Swedish communications manager Nils Sjöberg had no idea he was about to become famous. Or at least, no idea that his name was about to become famous. But in late June, when the Swedish morning show “Nyhetsmorgon” declared “This Is What You Came For” the song of the summer — and mentioned that it […]

Jennifer Aniston’s many faux pregnancies: How do tabloids get away with this?

For the last decade, Americans in supermarket checkout lines have been inundated with the tabloid headlines: “Jen’s finally PREGNANT!” “A Baby for Jen!” “Jen: Pregnant and Alone.” “Jen’s Baby Dream Shattered.”  “TWINS for Jen!” Most people roll their eyes and move on – but after years of this nonsense, Jennifer Aniston had enough. The Emmy-winning […]

The most powerful art from the #BlackLivesMatter movement, three years in

Three years ago today, the #BlackLivesMatter movement was born. It was born after Trayvon Martin. It grew after Michael Brown and Eric Garner. It sprung from decades of injustice and disregard. And as it grew, it planted seeds in artists’ minds. And from these seeds grew images of anger, solace, fear, hope, empowerment. Some artists reap signs of peace […]

Okay, Gypsy Sport: Your male models in lace skirts got our attention. But now what?

NEW YORK — At Gypsy Sport, the guy marched down the grassy green runway wearing what looked like an elongated sports jersey with a flouncy, lace hem — as if a football star had merged with a flamenco dancer. Some of the guys wore cartoon wigs in vivid, overly saturated shades of cobalt blue and […]

Nomination of Carla Hayden to Library of Congress is stuck in Senate

It seems even a job as uncontroversial as Librarian of Congress isn’t immune to congressional infighting. Librarian of Congress nominee Carla Hayden — currently chief executive of the Baltimore public library — breezed through a Senate committee hearing in April, and, within weeks, the committee voted unanimously to recommend that the Senate approve her nomination […]

Jennifer Aniston finally snaps, says she’s ‘fed up’ with tabloids obsessing about her ‘pregnancy’

Like clockwork every few months or so, a tabloid will proclaim the news: Jennifer Aniston is pregnant! Even when the “news” is proven wrong, over and over, the stories never stop. Last month, In Touch blared a world exclusive “Jen’s finally PREGNANT!” on its cover, with a helpful arrow pointing to the bikini-clad actress’s stomach and […]

While talking about the difficult art of how to write a successful ending to a comedy sketch, the creative minds behind “Key & Peele” also explained the stories behind some of the show’s most popular segments.

Trolls are doing whatever they can to bring down the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot

As of this writing, the IMDb rating for “Ghostbusters” is sitting at 3.7/10. More than 6,500 users have weighed in on the movie, which is interesting considering it hasn’t even opened yet. The comedy has only screened for critics in some cities (D.C., for example, doesn’t get a screening until Wednesday), and yet thousands of […]

The fashion industry seems detached from the world around it. Can it reconnect?

NEW YORK — On the first day of this city’s celebration of spring 2017 menswear, the designers of Duckie Brown were fixated on a photograph of an elegantly-dressed young woman taken 1,300 miles away. In their downtown studio, Daniel Silver and Steven Cox were hunched over a tiny cell phone image of Ieshia Evans, the […]

‘I’ve exhausted all other options': This is why people try out for ‘The Bachelor’

Almost every year, “The Bachelor” ends in scenic wilderness — perhaps on a cliff overlooking the ocean — with a woman in an evening gown and a man down on one knee, holding a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring as the music swells. But first, “The Bachelor” starts at a casino near the Baltimore airport. Or […]

Nothing about ‘UnREAL’ will surprise you after you watch the diabolical short film that inspired it

If you’ve been shocked by the drama on Lifetime’s “UnREAL,” you may want to brace yourself before watching the 20-minute short film that inspired it. “Sequin Raze” is an engrossing look at the darker side of reality television, anchored by a scene in which a disheveled producer on a “Bachelor”-esque dating show plays on the deepest […]

What was it like to film that wild massage scene in ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’?

You’re probably going to be hearing the name Sugar Lyn Beard a lot more soon. The actress’s breakout performance in the raunchy comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” is impressively outlandish.
