The 14-year-old singer-actress Willow Smith  is the new face of Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 collection. She sits perched on a ladder, clad in a black skirt and sequined top in the goth-inspired ad, photographed by David Sims.
Marc Jacobs released a statement about the new face for his line.

“Ever since our first Juergen Teller ad in 1998 which featured Kim Gordon on stage wearing my dress, I have always preferred collaborating with the people who inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway.

Over the years we have photographed an incredibly diverse and exceptional group of talented friends and individuals who I greatly admire: Victoria Beckham, Jamie Bochert, Jarvis Cocker, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, William Eggleston, Jessica Lange, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stephen Malkmus, Samantha Morton, Kate Moss, Charlotte Rampling, Winona Ryder, Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Sherman, Michael Stipe, and Rufus Wainwright, just to name a few. Beauty, style and talent know no age. It is those individuals whose creativity, unique vision, and voice inspire all of us here to create and express ourselves through our medium: fashion. 
Photographed by David Sims, this season’s ads feature friends, each of whom evoke a sense of intrigue and inspiration and collectively provoke a true consideration for individuality.

Here today I would like to share (not CHER) with you first, the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith.”

The rapper son of Oscar winner Tom Hanks,  Chet not only repeatedly used the N-word on social media but defended its use because he believes it “unifies the culture of hip-hop across all races.” He continued in a video clarifying his stance. “I don’t accept society getting to decide what ANYBODY can or can’t say. That’s something we call FREE SPEECH.”

Chet also pointed out Black people are still being literally KILLED by a RACIST and [expletive] system, “We have also reached a point where the word can no longer have a negative connotation if we so choose. And who is to say only black people can use it? The way I see it, it’s a word that unifies the culture of HIP-HOP across ALL RACES, which is actually kind of a beautiful thing.”

Vice President Joe Biden son dies of brain cancer

image

Beau Biden — son of Vice President Joe Biden — died of brain cancer at 46, the White House confirmed in a statement Saturday.

It is with broken hearts that Hallie, Hunter, Ashley, Jill and I announce the passing of our husband, brother and son, Beau, after he battled brain cancer with the same integrity, courage and strength he demonstrated every day of his life.

The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words. We know that Beau’s spirit will live on in all of us—especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter.

Beau’s life was defined by service to others. As a young lawyer, he worked to establish the rule of law in war-torn Kosovo. A major in the Delaware National Guard, he was an Iraq War veteran and was awarded the Bronze Star. As Delaware’s Attorney General, he fought for the powerless and made it his mission to protect children from abuse.

More than his professional accomplishments, Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother. His absolute honor made him a role model for our family. Beau embodied my father’s saying that a parent knows success when his child turns out better than he did.
