Fred Perry x Lavenham Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Fred Perry recently acquired fellow British firm Lavenham and has since worked on a collaborative collection. Known for their equestrian style quilted garments and accessories, for Fall/Winter 2014 Fred Perry combined their own British style with Lavenham’s trademark quilting for an exclusive three-piece capsule collection. The range is dominated by a Tennis Bomber Jacket which is a simple, athletic silhouette with ribbing at the collar and hems, and a body made from allover quilted nylon, coming in either black or navy. The third and final piece follows the same style but is instead a vest. All three pieces are finished off with the Fred Perry laurel wreath embroidered on the chest. The full collection is made in England and comes with a full tartan lining. You can purchase the range now from the Fred Perry webstore and check out a more high-end collaboration from Fred Perry with Belgian designer Raf Simons here.

Tina Fey Teaches Everyone How To Send Nude Photos [Video]

Tina Fey nude photos

Listen up, because Tina Fey has a few tips on how to send nude photos. Okay, so maybe Tina only has one real tip, but it’s still a helpful one. Fey is currently promoting her new film This Is Where I Leave You. Her promotion tour stopped at David Letterman’s Late Show, where the conversation turned to the celebrity nude scandal breach.

For those of you that don’t know, a hacker broke into hundreds of iCloud accounts and leaked dozens and dozens of celebrity photos — particularly nude photos. Celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Jill Scott, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Lea Michele, and countless of others were all victims of this horrible attack.

In reaction to the nudes leaked on 4Chan and Reddit, celebrities took a stand almost immediately. Some called the leak a gross violation of privacy, while others referred to it as an abusive violation. Tina Fey took the comedic approach when she was on Letterman’s show.

In case you or a fellow celebrity wants the freedom to send a nude photo, as stated, Fey has come up with the perfect solution.

“All my nudes are very, very extreme close-ups of my butt, so you’ll never know it’s me. Like scientific, like a microscope close-up. Thousands of them.”

So there you have it — if you want to take nude photos, just make sure you can’t be identified in the photos. Sounds like some good advice, right?

This Is Where I Leave You is the first big ensemble film Fey has been featured in since Mean Girls that has garnered a positive reception. All of her other films since then have received underwhelming reviews, but this film sees Fey doing what she does best — playing the straight man in a dramedy.

The Inquisitr previously reported the synopsis of Fey’s new film.

“A Jewish family that isn’t used to observing their faith’s traditions is forced to fulfill their father’s final wish and sit shivah together for an entire week and confront their problems.”

As for Jennifer Lawrence, she plans to sue the hacker. According to the actress’ rep, “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Earlier, Lawrence was seen for the first time since the nude scandal rocked her world. The actress was spotted out and about in Malibu, where she enjoyed rumored boyfriend Chris Martin’s home.

In what many are saying is a message in light of the scandal, Lawrence was seen wearing a shirt that quotes author Roald Dahl.

“If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

KAWS’ “Clean Slate” Sculpture Installation Opens in Hong Kong

Fresh from opening his “Man’s Best Friend” exhibition at Los Angeles’ Honor Fraser Gallery, KAWS has unveiled a new supersize sculpture installation in Hong Kong. Titled “Clean Slate,” the seven-meter tall piece features a Companion character carrying smaller child-like Companions. Having just become a father for the first time, the artwork seems like a particularly personal one for the artist. Situated on the mall in Hong Kong’s Harbour City, “Clean Slate” sits in the same spot that his work “Passing Through” stood in 2010, and will be on display until October 19.

Henry Louis Gates Jr. Hosts ‘Finding Your Roots’ Screening

This past Tuesday, Henry Louis Gates Jr. premiered the second season of his PBS series “Finding Your Roots” at the MOMA on his birthday.

When asked about the inspiration behind the show, Gates said, “I became addicted to genealogy when I was nine years old, it was the day we buried my father’s father and he looked like a white man … I couldn’t understand how someone so phenotypically white could have a descendant who looks like me.” This curiosity is what sparked Gates’ lifelong pursuit of the past and subsequently led to the creation of “Finding Your Roots.”

This episode of the second season includes news correspondent Anderson Cooper, director Ken Burns and playwright Anna Deavere Smith. The show focuses on each individual’s past while seamlessly tying all three together. Even if you’re not a history buff you’ll be intrigued and surprised by what the show has in store. It seems that all three figures had ancestors involved in the civil war. While Cooper and Burn’s ancestors owned slaves and fought for the confederacy, Smith’s ancestor Basil Biggs was an active agent in the Underground Railroad. However, Burns discovers he is a distant relative of Abraham Lincoln and therefore had ancestors fighting on both sides of the war. Anderson Cooper was distressed by the acts of his ancestors, even ashamed, but had no choice but to accept the past. As did Burns who said that he’s not defending the acts of his confederate ancestors, but rather accepting the past as reality and striving to do better.

Former NFL Giant Harry Carson was one of the many friends present at the premiere and shared a similar sentiment when asked about the recent violence regarding the NFL. Carson said, “I don’t condone anything that has happened …When my daughter’s mother pushed my buttons I exploded and I understood that I shouldn’t be where I was and separated myself and moved on with the rest of my life.” Through his show, Henry Gates Jr. demonstrates that retrospection is a powerful tool that allows us to gain insight and grow as we learn from our past.

After the screening, guests headed to China Grill for a fiesta. Ford is supporting the airing of the second season of “Finding Your Roots” with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. As part of Ford’s support, the Ford brand has created an original digital content series that will launch on YouTube on Tuesday, Sept. 23. The 10-part series will highlight individual user stories as the featured guests share the impact their family history has had on their lives. Be sure to tune in Tuesdays at 8 p.m., starting September 23rd.
