Only in L.A.

first_imgWhere else but L.A. would porn star Jenna Jameson be the darling of fashion week? Jameson sat front and center at the two hottest tickets in town, demurely watching the “Imitation of Christ” show at Smashbox Studios and catching Paris Hilton on the 2 Be Free catwalk. In a conservative little black dress, Jameson was photographed on the sidelines coming up for air during make-out sessions with Ultimate Fighting champ Tito Ortiz. With a chic new bob reminiscent of Posh Spice, Jameson is just another member of the blond brigade that’s traipsing back and forth from show to show this week. Rounding out the brigade are infamous party girl Tara Reid, “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere and former “24” cutie Elisha Cuthbert, who cheered her new buddy Hilton from the sidelines as Brandon Davis threw a fit over his second-row seat. Let’s face it, L.A.’s fashion week – which wraps up a season that wends from New York to London, Paris and Milan – is more about its laid-back party spirit and celebrity drama than shaping global trends. It’s a twice-a-year event (the spring show previewing fall fashions and vice versa) that gathers the fashion cognoscenti in Culver City, of all places. Visitors to the Smashbox Studios tents are just as likely to rub elbows with cute local surfer boys as they are to meet high-powered fashionistas. Rosemary-infused tequila cocktails and Tab energy drinks are the elixirs of choice. L.A. Fashion Week’s beginnings can be traced back to the late 1990s with independently produced runway shows scattered throughout town and a collective stint at the Downtown Standard. It wasn’t until mega-management company IMG took over the production reins in 2003 that the event began to capture public interest. Along with main sponsors Mercedes-Benz and Smashbox Cosmetics, IMG has wrangled formidable L.A.-based design talent throughout the years, including Louis Verdad, Jenni Kayne and Kevan Hall. For her show on Sunday, lingerie designer Dina Bar-El kicked off with a three-piece jazz band and a burlesque dancer from the popular Hollywood club Forty Deuce. Extraordinarily limber and deliciously vampy, the dancer sashayed across the runway, executing somersaults while stripping down to a garter and pasties. The audience’s male contingent, which included *NSYNC’s JC Chasez, never enjoyed a fashion show so much. Collection Bebe’s runway show, held immediately after Bar-El’s, used a more traditional tactic to garner buzz: celebrity endorsers. “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria, and actresses Rebecca Romijn and Virginia Madsen set off a paparazzi frenzy. On Monday, underwear line 2(X)IST brought the Laker girls out for a pre-show performance, a ploy that was plenty of fun but didn’t make much sense considering that the entire show consisted of chiseled, half-naked male models. Ed Hardy, the popular rock-influenced T-shirt and jeans line, held a circus complete with a bright red runway, a model dressed as a magician and a ballerina dancing en pointe. Designer Joseph Domingo pulled a shock-and-awe move by taping sheer, flesh-color masks across the models’ eyes, creating a look straight out of an avant-garde horror movie. The move prompted a collective gasp from an audience that spent more time anxiously awaiting an accident than analyzing the clothes. “I don’t think I can focus on anything else,” a guest said. Alas, the hope of shouting the line “She’s fashion roadkill!” from “Sex and the City” was dashed. Each model safely made it up and down the runway without incident. The eerie theme continued at the highly anticipated Imitation of Christ show. The edgy yet sophisticated line from designer Tara Subkoff was Gothic glam at its finest, from the models’ jet-black lipstick to the human bones strategically scattered across the runway. Subkoff often shows in New York, but she still managed to “go Hollywood” for some aspects of the presentation. Walking down a runway in ill-fitting shoes is already a difficult task, but Subkoff’s models also had to carry Samsung’s Nouveau Noir phone and dodge vertebrae while fake dialing. Filling the front-row seats were Cuthbert, “Heroes” star Ali Larter and “Big Love” actress Ginnifer Goodwin. “It was beautiful and interesting,” said Goodwin, who’s now dating Katie Holmes’ ex-fiance Chris Klein. “I was especially fond of her gold pieces. My favorite was the mini with the ruching on the bum.” L.A. Fashion Week will end Thursday, wrapping up with shows from Rami Kashou, denim line Monarchy Collection, Ed Hardy’s high-end line Christian Audigier and red-carpet favorite Kevan Hall.

I was right! Burnley draw supports ‘campaign against Chelsea’ claims, says Mourinho

first_imgJose Mourinho claims the host of referee oversights during Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Burnley supports his belief of a “clear campaign” against the Premier League leaders.The Blues allowed title rivals Manchester City to close the gap at the top to just five points after being held by the struggling Clarets at Stamford Bridge.Branislav Ivanovic scored his sixth goal of the season to put the hosts in front before a late Ben Mee header saw relegation-threatened Burnley come away with a point, but it is the sending off of Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic which is sure to dominate the headlines.The Serb was shown straight red after pushing Ashley Barnes to the ground in response to a nasty one-footed lunge from the forward, who incredibly escaped unpunished.It was just one of the incidents highlighted by Mourinho following the game, as he launched a thinly-veiled attack on referee Martin Atkinson’s performance.And the Blues boss believes the ongoing decisions against his side proves he was right in claims made in January over a campaign by “people, pundits, commentators and coaches from other teams”.“Have I seen a run of decisions like this? I don’t remember,” Mourinho said.“I’m happy that I’m not stupid and I understood everything a couple of months ago. I’m not in the mood to laugh.“If this story that started a couple of months ago finished today with 12 matches to play with an advantage of five points, I’d tell you we will be champions. But I don’t know if the story ends here, or if there is more waiting for us.”Mourinho, mindful of avoiding another run-in with authorities, chose his words carefully as he criticised Atkinson for the Matic incident as well as rejecting penalty appeals when Michael Kightly handed the ball in the 33rd minute and Jason Shackell barged over Diego Costa in the 43rd minute.“This game had four crucial moments – minutes 30, 33, 43 and 69. This is the story of this game. I can’t comment because it’s difficult for me to not say the truth,” Mourinho added.“I’m making it easy for you because if you look at these moments you know exactly what I think about the game.“What happened to Matic was in minute 69 and minute 69 had a big relationship with minute 30 because normally that player, if I can call him a player, should have been in the shower in minute 31.“There wouldn’t have been a minute 69 if the person in charge had dealt with minute 30 properly.”When asked about Barnes’ tackle, Mourinho replied: “I’ll leave it with you. I’d prefer not to call it because if I call it I’m going to use some words…“A couple of weeks ago when I was here in the press conference after the Liverpool game in the Capital One Cup, the television subtitles had gone on and on about Diego’s crimes. Well compare Diego’s crimes with what happened against Burnley.”last_img read more

While her husband Gordon oversaw the work at Hoyt’s Automotive, the Whittier repair shop the couple owned for 25 years, Mary focused on making the customers happy, her husband said Wednesday. “Her biggest legacy was taking care of people,” Gordon Hoyt, 69, said. “We took care of cars, she took care of people.” Hoyt died Friday after a 13-month battle with leukemia. She was 67. Family members and friends will hold a memorial service for her at 11 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 13222 Bailey St., Whittier. The couple’s youngest daughter, Pam Thomas, said that even though she was a co-owner of the shop, Mary Hoyt preferred staying in the background. “She was the backbone in everything he did. The backbone doesn’t get recognition, but she didn’t care,” Thomas said. “Her most comfortable position was more in a support role, but she did a lot of things in the lead role. She was just as happy to see my dad move forward and say, `I’m the owner.”‘ Hoyt was diagnosed with leukemia in October 2004. Soon after, she began receiving treatment at the City of Hope in Duarte, her husband said. Gordon Hoyt said his wife remained hopeful after being diagnosed with cancer. “I never saw her look back. She never looked to the end,” he said. “She looked at what was happening at the time, looked ahead and said, `Let’s get on with today.”‘ Mary Hoyt was raised in Antelope Valley and moved to Whittier in 1956 to attend Whittier College. She and Gordon met while she was a student at the college and through her involvement at a local Methodist church. The couple married in 1958. The Hoyts were longtime Whittier residents before they moved to Brea. Aside from her duties at the automotive shop and the occasional part-time job, Hoyt was active in the community and had served as PTA president at her daughters’ schools. Gordon Hoyt said his wife was a faith-filled woman, even in her last days. “She said to the doctor, `I’m not ready to go, but I’m not fearful.”‘ Gordon said. Mary Hoyt is survived by her husband Gordon; two daughters, Marilyn Cole and Pam Thomas; and three granddaughters. (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024last_img

Kilcar too good for Termon in feisty quarter-final clash

first_imgKilcar proved far too good for Francie Friel’s Termon side in a game that threatened to boil over on several occasions. Termon tried to impose themselves physically on their slicker, quicker opponents, but it threatened to escalate with tensions running high.The game was just twenty seconds old when Ryan McHugh was hit hard in a third man tackle by Sean ‘The Decent’ O’Donnell and that set the tone for the next fifteen minutes. O’Donnell was lucky not to be black-carded – but he replaced early into the first-half as his intimate tussle with McBrearty causing a number of spats.There were lot of incidents happening off the ball, with Eoin McHugh, Ryan McHugh and Stephen McBrearty the target of some very close marking that bordered on the illegal.Kilcar’s management team were getting animated at the tactics employed by Termon, and it was very difficult game to referee.However, Micheal Hegarty rolled back the years with a superb first-half display, he kicked three long range beauties. While Eoin McHugh, Ryan McHugh, Ciaran McGinley and Barry Shovlin scored some superb points to give Kilcar a commanding first-half lead.They headed for the changing rooms at half-time leading by nine points – on a score-line of 0-11 to 0-02, with the game effectively already over as a contest.It was much of the same in the second-half, with Kilcar dominating possession and they worked some beautiful points, with McGinley, Patrick McBrearty and Eoin McHugh all adding points.It could have been worse for Termon, but Michael Boyle made two stunning second-half saves, Kilcar have so much pace and quality it was difficult to combat.Termon battled on gamely, but in truth were totally outclassed by a team with genuine ambitions of winning the Donegal SFC. On this evidence, Kilcar look like they could go all the way, but will know they’ll face tougher tests if they’re to get their hands on the Dr Maguire Cup which has proved elusive to them in the last 23 years.Final score: Kilcar 0-19 Termon 0-04Kilcar too good for Termon in feisty quarter-final clash was last modified: September 24th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal SFCGAAkilcarnewsSportTermonlast_img read more
