Feast your eyes on the very first campaign images from "new Coach." Under the creative direction of recent hire Stuart Vevers, the brand has pulled out all the fashion stops, hiring a Vogue-editorial worthy staff including Steven Meisel behind the lens, Pat McGrath on makeup and Guido Palau on hair.
Meisel's model portraits are layered over images from Joel Sternfeld's 2000-2001 High Line series "Landscape with Path" because 1.) Art, and 2.) his snaps were "considered important catalysts in conveying the potential for the space as a public space, which helped convert many people into supporters of the movement to save it from demolition." Is that a big, fat rebranding metaphor?
Vevers says the campaign reflects, "the new spirit of the Coach girl—effortless, youthful, personal, authentic and innately cool." Have a look for yourself at the teaser after the jump, and don't be surprised to see a big, big push in the September glossies.
Someone had to go. After a rebuilding season that wasn’t nearly as awful as some critics made it out to be, first-year cast member Brooks Wheelan was shown the door Monday, announcing on Twitter he would not be returning for the 40th season in September.
It’s rare for “SNL” to not trim a cast member or two before its fall premiere, so the termination was no big surprise. All the more so coming off a transition year in which eight of the 17 cast members were rookies, the equivalent of throwing everything against the wall just to see what sticks. It was inevitable someone would fall off the wall.
But there’s a few questions to consider in the wake of his ouster: Was Wheelan deserving of his pink slip, and even if he was, were there others even more deserving of the boot? Furthermore, will Wheelan be the only one to canned in the offseason, and if not, who else is going to follow in his footsteps?
Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!— Brooks Wheelan (@brookswheelan) July 14, 2014
If you watched “SNL” in its entirety this past season, Wheelan’s exit shouldn’t come as a surprise. He was barely used, and didn’t seem to connect in any one of the sketches in which he did appear. There was one sketch early in the season that practically served as the writing on the wall in which Wheelan played himself as a gameshow contestant, and a joke pointedly played on the fact that no one watching had any idea who he was.
Of course, it’s the “SNL” freshmen who are going to be most susceptible to cuts. But it’s a credit to “SNL” that most of the newbies seemed untouchable: Colin Jost is the head writer in addition to being the new face of “Weekend Update,” so that was never going to happen. Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney got plenty of post-12:30 p.m. sketches to themselves, so they’re doing something right. Sasheer Zamata also acquitted herself nicely in a midseason entry that kicked up some attention as the series’ first female African-American cast member in ages. I’m willing to bet Noel Wells sticks around though she didn’t do anything particularly memorable, just solid impression work.
From there, the odds get a little longer. Were Mike O’Brien not already a writer on “SNL,” his on-air tenure would seem ill-fated considering how inconsistently he was used, though he got some featured sketches late in the run that may indicate he’ll be back. If there is any one person who seems most likely to join Wheelan on the unemployment line, it’s John Milhiser, who was the least-used cast member last season, according to this handy chart from comedy-news website Splitsider. If another head is going to roll, it would have to be his.
Still, it wouldn’t be surprising if Wheelan was the only cut and “SNL” didn’t even bother to replace him. That would actually be a nice show of confidence in a cast that may be short on stars for now, though Kate McKinnon got a shot in the arm last week with an Emmy nomination.
Don’t forget, it’s likely veteran player Nasim Pedrad won’t be back considering she is joining the cast of the new Fox comedy “Mulaney,” though no official announcement has been made.
Chin up, Wheelan. It’s sad to see a young comic take his lumps, though “SNL” history is littered with talent that didn’t last long on the show, only to find success elsewhere. Don’t be shocked if Wheelan suddenly shows up in pilot season next year, laughing all the way to the bank.
Though “SNL” is an incredibly powerful springboard for launching new talent, it’s not for everyone. Just because someone flames out on “SNL” doesn’t mean he or she doesn’t have the goods for a showbiz career.
Who do you want to see booted from SNL next, ONTD?
Pam Oliver's days with Fox on the NFL sidelines may be numbered, but the network says she hasn't been sacked.
According to a report Monday in Sports Illustrated, Oliver is being bumped back to the second string for the 2014-2015 season and then she won't be on the sidelines at all after that.
The same report says Erin Andrews is slated to take her place on Fox's lead crew, which also includes Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the broadcasting booth.
When Oliver first met with Fox Sports president Eric Shanks and executive vice president of production John Entz after the 2013 football season ended, they informed her she was off game day broadcasting duty altogether, the report says. After further discussion, however, they allowed Oliver one final season — her 20th — on the sidelines.

“To go from the lead crew to no crew was a little shocking,” Oliver told SI. “I said I wanted to do a 20th year [on the sidelines]. I expressed to them that I was not done and had something to offer. Again, I think it was predetermined coming in. Not at that meeting, but two years ago it was determined that no matter what I did or did not do, a change would be made for this year.”
Why are they moving the 53-year-old reporter?
According to SI, one “veteran reporter” thinks it's because of Oliver's age and outward appearance. ”She's not blonde, nor is she in the demographic,” said the anonymous reporter. “I'm not naïve and I understand it's a business, but I think that Fox did not treat her as befits a woman who has been the female face of their sports operation for the past 19 years.”
Fox is telling a different story.
A statement given to TheWrap Monday was headlined “Pam Oliver elevated to senior correspondent.” In it, the network announced Oliver would join Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch next season as part of a new broadcasting team, but absent was any mention of Oliver's disappointment.
“FOX Sports has grown tremendously over the last few years, and we've secured and retained the rights to many of the country's most popular sports,” said Shanks.
“After years of admiring Pam's consistently incredible work on the NFL, we realized that there was so much more she could do for us, on a variety of sports, all year long. Her intelligence and skills as a reporter and interviewer are unparalleled, and we're excited to have her take a much larger role here.”
BS. Nothing against Erin Andrews, but she's been doing this 20 YEARS. She's 53 and being pushed out for not being a "typical, young blonde" that the "typical" football audience wants
Ask Lauren: How to Love the Body You Have
Here on LaurenConrad.com we post a lot of blogs about slimming down, shaping up, and getting fit. I’ll be the first one to admit that I love to read diet and fitness tips because I think a healthy lifestyle is important. But behind all of this talk of toning up lies the heart of what it means to be healthy: Loving the skin you’re in and treating it right. One reader recently wrote a comment that really inspired me and sparked a conversation on the blog. She explained that “loving the body you have” is a great way to be confident, but that constantly working to improve our health is what’s really important. I was happy to see this interesting take on the whole idea of “slimming down” and “shaping up” because it showed me that our readers are quite intuitive about body image. In a nutshell, here’s what one reader, Halie, wrote:
[Being healthy] shouldn’t be about appearance, it should be about health. Love yourself so much that you want to be healthy. Once I let go of trying to be skinny or perfect and focused on the idea of loving my body so much that I gave it the very best treatment, I got healthier.
Another reader, Hannah, agreed and wrote back with this:
Although it’s great to “be happy with the body you have,” what is even better is trying to improve and become healthier and more fit. Almost everyone I know, while of course they are worthy of self-confidence, should spend more time working out, choosing healthier meals and snacks, and making lifestyle changes rather than sitting on the couch.
Now here’s what I think about loving your body. As women, we all have things that we can be self conscious of. Whether it’s wishing our tummies were a little flatter or our arms were a little more toned (for me it’s the stubborn cellulite on my thighs), there are always those little things we wish we could change about our bodies. My approach to most things in life has always been to accept it or change it. Because of this, I have always used my flaws as motivation to work harder and stay in shape. But as I have grown, I have learned more to love my body for what it is. After all, it’s been good to me. It takes me on afternoon hikes and runs alongside my dogs in the sand. It built me the raised beds in my garden and feels strong when I workout at the gym. And, in exchange, I treat my body the best I can. I stay active and feed it healthy food. I let it rest at night and take vitamins to keep it strong. I love my body the way it is because I have treated it well and continued to exercise and feed it healthy food throughout the years. I am all for body confidence, but I am even more for living a healthy lifestyle.
This summer, remember that working toward that “bikini body” I often refer to does not mean working to fit into a certain mold. A bikini body is not a certain weight, size or shape. It simply means working hard to treat your body right, exercise, eat healthy, and then feeling confident in your bikini. That, ladies, is the best way to learn to love the skin you’re in.
Fashion designer, best selling author and lifestyle expert Lauren Conrad hosts the Malibu Island Spiced Summer Soiree at the Mondrian South Beach Hotel on July 9, 2014 in Miami, Florida.
Justin Timberlake "In His Prime" Was Her Childhood Crush
LC still xo JT! Lauren Conrad told Us Weekly at the Mondrian South Beach in Miami Beach, Fla., that her childhood crush will forever be Justin Timberlake, even after he famously dissed reality TV back in 2007.
The former Hills star, 28, told Us that Timberlake graced her California bedroom walls as a child. Asked whether it was "young curly-haired Justin" or post-'N Sync Timberlake, she elaborated of the latter: "Like, the hair, license-plate-around-the-neck Justin in his prime."
Conrad's hilarious admission was made while hosting the Malibu Spiced Summer Soiree on Wednesday, July 9 -- nearly seven years after Timberlake memorably snubbed reality television onstage at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.
Writing a new book!
In an interview with 'Venue Magazine,' she responded to the question whether she plans to publish more books, "I do. Yes, very soon, I'd like to come up with a new book". She said, "I was taking a break. It was a lot. I wrote 8 books in a very short amount of time and I needed to breathe."
What factors do you think are important when it comes to loving your body?

For the bulls, he was perhaps the most tantalizing of targets.
"Buffalo" Bill Hillmann is considered the best young bull runner from the United States. He travels to Spain from his Chicago home every summer for the famous running of the bulls in Pamplona. He even co-wrote a book, "Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona," that offered novices handy tips to avoid getting hurt at the festival.
But the bulls didn't care.
Hillmann was one of two people gored Wednesday at Spain's famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona. The weeklong party attracts hundreds of thousands of thrill seekers from around the world, who make a half-mile mad dash -- the encierro -- through the city's cobblestone streets each morning at 8 a.m., chased by angry bulls.
In Wednesday's run, which featured six 1,300-pound black Victoriano del Rio bulls, one of the animals broke loose from the pack and gored Hillmann and another man, a Spaniard. The American stumbled, fell to the ground and was stabbed by the bull's horn in his right thigh, according to Hillmann's friend and coauthor, Alexander Fiske-Harrison, who posted photos of the frightening but also embarrassing incident on his blog.
Fortunately, the bull's horn missed Hillmann's artery and bone. He underwent surgery and is expected to recover. A local website for San Fermin aficionados quoted Hillmann's medical report as saying his condition was "not serious."
Hillmann's wife, Enid, was at his hospital bedside, Fiske-Harrison wrote.
The Spaniard who was gored alongside Hillmann is believed to have suffered more severe injuries to his chest. The regional government termed his condition "serious." Three other men were injured in the melee, but not gored.
Spain's San Fermin festival dates to the 13th century. It was immortalized by Ernest Hemingway in his 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises."
Runners wear white, with red bandannas and cummerbunds, thought to symbolize the purity and martyrdom of St. Fermin, a Roman who converted to Christianity in the 3rd century. The heart-pounding chase ends in Pamplona's grand bullring, where that day's six bulls are killed each evening.
The daily bull run starts at 8am and usually lasts around three to five minutes.
Fifteen people have died during the bull run since there since record-keeping began in the 1920s, with 14 fatal gorings and one man dying of traumatic asphyxiation during a pile-up at the bullring entrance. A 27-year-old man from Madrid was the last person to be killed during the bull run after being gored in the neck in 2009.

Claire Leeson is 24 years old and "up to her eyeballs" in debt. But her money problems don't come from school loans or car payments: They come from her desire (need?) to look like Kim Kardashian West, whom Leeson idolizes above all others.
Leeson became obsessed with Kim K after she started watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2009 and, having been bullied at school, she began imitating the most famous (and most annoying) (My favorite is Khloe) Kardashian in order to give herself a boost of confidence. When she's "got her Kimmy on"Leeson says, she feels unstoppable, invincible and like she's really making something of herself.
She also says that being Kim Kardashian makes her love herself a little more. (Which makes some sense because there's no one that loves themselves more than Kim. Only Kanye can match her complete self-absorption.)
Leeson has spent over 30 thousand dollars to transform herself into her idol. She's undergone breast augmentation and regularly pays for teeth whitening, makeup, padded underwear (the Metro refers to it as bum padding which makes it sound fun and quaint but also not 350 pounds fun and quaint), hair extensions and extensive tanning. She pays for it all with credit cards and is now in extreme debt due to her transformation. She's even been summoned to court, but that's not stopping her. Leeson's now looking into more extreme measures to emulate Kim. Her latest plan is to have fat transplants to her butt so that she can achieve Kim's glorious derriere without the silicone prosthetics she currently wears.
Leeson told This Morning that her parents are worried about her, but she doesn't plan on ending her transformation anytime soon. When asked about ways that she relates to Kim, Leeson said "We have the same amount of siblings...we have the same kind of arguments."

Camille Grammer has lashed out at her ex-boyfriend, suing him for beating her up in a Dallas hotel room last year ... and humiliating her by shoving a hot dog in her mouth.
Camille claims in her suit -- filed by Larry Stein -- Dimitri Charalambopoulos beat her to a pulp in the hotel room ... just after she returned from the hospital after undergoing cancer surgery.
Kelsey's ex is now counter-suing Dimitri -- after he sued her for defamation -- claiming her story is true and she has more than enough photos, witnesses and other evidence to establish it.
As for the hot dog allegation ... Camille says Dimitri is a drunk and once during a trip to Hawaii he was doing so many shots she asked him to stop. She says he reacted by shoving a hot dog in her mouth and commenting how much she enjoyed having hot dogs crammed down her throat.
And this allegation is even more shocking. Camille claims just after her surgery Dimitri came into the hospital while she was still hopped up on drugs. She says he put a ring on her finger, which she thought was sweet, until she became lucid a day or 2 later and noticed the ring had a plastic penis on it and she was wearing it in front of her family and the hospital staff.
Camille wants money for her suffering.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse has cancelled their July 17 Tel Aviv concert, according to Warner Brothers Records, due to the security situation in Israel. The band”s only Israeli date was at the city’s main Hayarkon Park.
A spokesperson for Young said, “It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we must cancel our one and only Israeli concert due to tensions which have rendered the event unsafe at this time. We’ll miss the opportunity to play for our fans and look forward to playing in Israel and Palestine in peace.”
“I will be making donations to both the Louise Tillie Alpert Youth Music Centre of Israel, and Heartbeat,” Young’s statement said, “two organizations that teach music to Palestinian and Israeli youth simultaneously by enabling them to play music together.”
Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama used the annual White House Iftar dinner Monday evening to briefly discuss the crises unfolding in the Mideast.
"Even as we celebrate all that we have in common, we know that in too many corners of the world, we see violence and terror, and those who would destroy rather than build," he said.
The White House Iftar dinner was started by former President Bill Clinton. President George W. Bush continued the tradition after the 9-11 terror attacks. President Obama has also continued to host them.
The dinner is meant to honor Muslims who are celebrating the end of a day of fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
On the growing conflict between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza, the President staunchly defended Israel's right to defend its borders.
"No country can accept rockets fired indiscriminately at citizens," Obama said. "And so we've been very clear that Israel has the right to defend itself against what I consider to be inexcusable attacks from Hamas."
He added, though, that "the death and injury of Palestinians is a tragedy, which is why we've emphasized the need to protect civilians."
The President also said, "The pictures we are seeing in Gaza and Israel are heart wrenching."
He pushed for both sides to come back to the negotiating table and described a new plan offered by Egypt as "promising," saying he hopes it "will restore the calm that we've been seeking."
He said Americans "care deeply about what is happening there, and I know there are strong views as well as differences about how we should move forward.
"Our goal has been and continues to be peace and security for both Israelis and Palestinians."
Obama also restated his administration's policy on Syria, telling those gathered that, "the Assad regime continues its brutality against the Syrian people and so we continue to help Syrians stand up to [President Bashar al-]Assad and deal with the humanitarian crisis and push back against extremists."
On Iraq, Obama said, "We continue to call for a new government that can unite Iraqis and show all communities in Iraq that they can advance their aspirations through the political process."
Earlier, several dozen protesters gathered outside the White House to call on Arab leaders to boycott the dinner, saying the administration was unfairly taking Israel's side in the Gaza conflict.
The "MasterChef" kitchen is now a bit less populated after the judges chose another home cook to send packing. Before that though, there was a team challenge to get through.
The judges divided the cooks into male and female teams, before making each side pick a member of the opposite sex to join them. The cooks were tasked with running the kitchen of a diner, each side getting half the customers.
It was clear right away that Willie was having trouble expediting in the kitchen. As the captain of his team, he was unable to get the job done, though he wasn't the only one. Leslie, for instance, had way more trouble frying an egg than any cook should.
He also continued to make enemies left and right. While he might have found a bit of peace with Ahran last week, Daniel is still fair game.
On the other side of the kitchen, the women and Christian excelled in the challenge with only minimal hold ups. They were the easy winners, leading to the men and Victoria facing the dreaded pressure test.
Willie was given the option to save himself, as captain, or three of his teammates. He chose to spare Daniel, Scottish Francis and Victoria, leaving a showdown between himself, Dan, Cutter and Leslie.
Those up for elimination had to make a perfect red velvet cake, which is easier said than done. While Willie and Leslie have no problems with the cake, as one's a baker and the other is just plain good, Cutter and Dan both turn in less than stellar products.
Dan's batter was too thick and he overcooked his cake, while Cutter isn't good at ratios and has far too much frosting between his layers, making the cake way too sweet. Instead of taking the criticism, Cutter instead flips out and argues with all three judges. It's the absolute wrong way to handle the situation, but he doesn't seem to care.
He painted a huge target on his back, but still managed to survive the night. It was Dan's cake that was the worse of the two, so he was sent home.

US country music legend Dolly Parton has revealed she loves her gay fans so much that she has made a song just for them. Parton was speaking to reporters at a press conference last week, promoting her current world tour, which is coming to a close tonight.
The ‘Jolene’ singer said she has a special song for her gays fans. ‘At some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community,’ said Parton.
‘I have a song called 'Just A Wee Bit Gay'. It's a great little dance tune, it's funny and it's got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves.’
Parton, considered a gay icon, has been a vocal supporter of the gay community and equal marriage. In April, she told a magazine she believes everyone should be with who they love.
‘I think everyone should be with who they love,’ she said. ‘I think gay couples should be allowed to marry. They should suffer just like us heterosexuals.’
Last month, she headlined Glastonbury Music festival in the coveted Sunday Legends slot.
ONTD gays, what is youse all favorite gay songs/albums?
While there isn’t much that is known about Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, what is known makes it sound like the film is going to be much different than what fans might expect from a Fantastic Four movie. And that theory would be backed up by a recent translation ComicBookMovie.com did of a Kate Mara interview that appears in Esquire Latinoamerica.
Kate Mara will be playing Susan Storm (Invisible Woman) in the Fantastic Four reboot. When asked if she liked the comics, here is what Mara had to say: "I've never been a fan of comics, I've never actually read one. I was going to for this movie but the director said it wasn't necessary. Well, actually he told us that we shouldn't do it because the plot won't be based on any history of anything already published. So I chose to follow his instructions. The one fact is I am a fan of comic book movies, so it's very exciting to be part of a movie like this."
Mara also said that she didn’t feel any more responsibility for this role than she’s felt with any past roles. She also praised the other actors in the film, specifically mentioning Michael B. Jordan, who plays the Human Torch. Mara said, “We are also trying to create a new way of seeing these superheroes, I'm focusing on making her (Susan Storm) as real as possible.”
Of course, Mara’s comments are not likely to sit well with classic Fantastic Four fans, who are already concerned the film is straying too far from the source material. However, Fox does have a very good recent track record with X-Men: Days of Future Past and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes pleasing both fans and critics. If Fantastic Four has the quality level of those two films, then fans might quickly forgive the changes that have been made from the comic books.
Nike has mad respect for Derek Jeter.
And rightfully so. The Yankees player celebrates 20 years in the baseball game this season. In honor of Jeter's upcoming retirement, the Jordan brand — which has sponsored Jeter since 1999 — released a sweet video entitled "RE2PECT."
In the ad, several fans, athletes and celebrities, including Tiger Woods, Carmelo Anthony, Jay Z and Billy Crystal, tip their hats to Jeter. (No big deal.)
Then, prepare yourselves. Even a couple of Red Sox fans and Mets players get in on the hat-tipping salutes.
Apparently, Derek Jeter is so legendary Nike will even hire actors to act as Red Sox fans and Mets players who tip their hats to their rival.
Nah, we're kidding. It's well-deserved. Jeter is one of just 28 players to surpass 3,000 career hits and is currently eighth on the all-time hits list with 3,408, according to MLB.
The ad will air on Tuesday night during Jeter’s final All-Star game.
