Demi Moore hits the Fendi runway at Paris Fashion Week

From Hollywood to haute couture.

On Wednesday, Demi Moore surprised the Paris Fashion Week crowd with a catwalk cameo during Fendi’s Spring 2021 show.

The 58-year-old actress opened the presentation in a plunging off-the-shoulder jacket and matching wide-leg trousers, along with a pair of seriously statement-making geometric earrings.

While the “Ghost” actress made an appearance in fishnets and lace during Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show last fall, the Fendi show marks her runway debut.

The Paris presentation was also a first for Kim Jones, Fendi’s recently appointed artistic director of womenswear, who told British Vogue his debut collection was,

Leadership in U.S.: Increase in representation, still lacks diversity | Lifestyle

Although the United States has progressed throughout the years, there is still a long way to go in terms of equal representation.

One must be wary of what is called the “progress narrative,” which is the thought that as time goes on, things get better.

This is not always the case, even though it can appear that way when thinking about the different things people have accomplished over the years.

Electricity has been developed and nearly every American now owns an iPhone. However, as has been made obvious due to recent events, the world – and America – is far

Paris Fashion Week: Highlights from this week’s couture shows

Written by Allyssia Alleyne, CNN

If the ready-to-wear shows are about selling product, Paris’ haute couture shows, staged each year in January and July, are about selling the dream. During the Spring-Summer 2021 season, which took place from January 25 to 28, the few designers working in this rarefied space once again came together — this time, virtually — to parade their most fantastical designs.

While the theatrical collections typically include elaborate runway productions, world-building has become more challenging due to the restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic — but not impossible. This season, a number of designers found ways to

These 6 Designers Prove New York Fashion Week Is Still the Place to Discover Emerging Talent

Hardly anything about the New York Fashion Week schedule looks like it did a year ago. For starters, the fall 2021 season kicks off this Sunday—about a week later than usual—not with a show, but with a virtual boot camp class hosted by AARMY. Dozens of presentations and events follow in the next five days, most of which are happening virtually, and many of the week’s biggest names—Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Tory Burch among them—are missing.

All to say, it’s a far cry from what we were doing last February: criss-crossing Manhattan and Brooklyn for back-to-back shows, cramming onto

LIVE HEALTHY HARTSVILLE: A woman’s heart | Lifestyles

When we look at all the things that you do have control over, it should be noted that how you eat plays a major role in how well you can control several of these factors. The first thing I recommend to help your heart out is eat more vegetables.

If you focus on the foods that you can benefit from and work on adding them into your daily eating plan, you will start to weed out those items that you do not need as much of anyway. So, start with vegetables, especially the non-starchy kind, like greens, peppers, squash, tomatoes

The fashion police are judging you on Zoom (Opinion)

Indeed, now we need to make ourselves and our homes presentable while also managing the new demands of kids learning remotely from home. Some people have settled for a designated “Zoom shirt” reserved specifically for video appearances while others have taken to quarantine-friendly athleisure designed to communicate a down-to-earth nonchalance. We stage managed webcam-friendly bookshelves, groaning with weighty tomes and strategically placed books that announced our hipness, creativity, political values or interests. It’s telling that Room Rater, which began as a lighthearted assessment of webcam lighting and composition, has become a kind of status competition that rewards the most prestigious

How Heart Disease Differs for Women


This is just one of several recent findings — with more included below — that shed light on sex-related differences in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

Women have fewer heart attacks than men, but they tend to fare worse during them. To find out why, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, examined hospital data on nearly 7 million heart attack patients. In a study published in January in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, they showed that women who are hospitalized with a heart attack are less likely than men to

Nolan: Do women have equal voice in virtual finance conversations?

By Allison Nolan

The new social media platform Clubhouse has been making waves in recent weeks. Some industry experts are saying it might be the next major social media platform. So, I was eager to accept my invitation to join and see what all the fuss is about.

This is an audio-only app where users can join chat rooms to listen or participate in the conversation by raising their hand and being invited by the moderator(s) to speak. It is exciting to join this platform in the early stages and listen to, and even ask questions of, some incredibly knowledgeable
