Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri + Eleonora Abbagnato's Ballet Costumes For 'Nuit Blanche'

Synergies between the worlds of fashion and ballet are intense, with Dior Creative Director of Dior Women Maria Grazia Chiuri crediting dance as a major source of inspiration for her designs. In collaboration with Eleonora Abbagnato—the Director of Ballet at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and an toile at the Opéra National in Paris—Chiuri’s creations are on stage in Rome from March 29 - April 2.

Her stunning collection of costumes for ‘Nuit Blanche’ a ballet in a series of three dances with choreography by Sébastien Bertaud is performed as an ode to composer and musician Philip Glass. Chiuri’s costumes for Abbagnato, principal guest dancer Friedmann Vogel and 16 dancers present a more contemporary examination of concepts of masculinity and femininity. Both genders are dressed in light and delicate, but highly-functional, materials.

Michigan Trumpsters Chant "AOC Sucks" As Junior Condemns All Things Green Except Money For Trump Family

Michigan Trumpsters Chant "AOC Sucks" As Junior Condemns All Things Green Except Money For Trump Family

Part of the crowd at Thursday night’s Trump March 28, 2019 rally in Michigan started chanting "AOC sucks," referencing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), after Donald Trump Jr. criticized her ideas. After all, the president’s son is such an authority on American politics, and his father loves women targets, in particular.

“Think about the fact that every mainstream, leading Democratic contender is taking the advice of a freshman congresswoman who three weeks ago didn’t know the three branches of government,” the president's son told the crowd ahead of his dad’s speech. “I don’t know about you guys, but that’s pretty scary.”

After Junior’s remark — AOC calls him ‘Junior’ — the crowd broke into the "AOC sucks" chant. Read Charlotte Alter’s cover story 'Change Is Closer Than We Think.' Inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Unlikely Rise’. We hope that AOC will just ignore the chants, because they may be with her all the way to 2020.

The Trump crowd loves to denigrate smart women because females with brains that function on overdrive have a very small place in their universe. Daddy’s girl Ivanka Trump, Trumpsters embrace. Do you see a pattern here? I’m sure that Trump had a proverbial heart attack when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — hardly a member of the Trump family inner sanctum — showed up on the cover of last week’s TIME magazine.

Israeli Model Yoshevah Jones Black Hebrews As Tablet's Armin Rosen Expands Convo

Vogue’s Liana Satenstein sits down with Tel Aviv model Yoshevah Jones, described as Israel’s most in-demand face. Jones identifies as a Black Hebrew.

For background, the Black Hebrew movement was founded in Chicago by Ben Ammi Ben-Israel (born Ben Carter). who considered it a radical exit from America during the height of the civil rights movement. Mr. Ben-Israel was a prophet-like figure who claimed that he had a visitation from the angel Gabriel in 1966, in which he was encouraged to lead an exodus of black Americans to Israel. Mr. Ben-Israel led a group of about 400 black, mostly Chicagoans first to Liberia for two years, and then the 100 or so followers, who wanted to continue, on to the small Israeli town of Dimona, about two nours north of Tel Aviv.
