Black-ish...We are in love with this new show on ABC!

Everyone will have an opinion. My opinion is that I love the show, I am glad it is on, and happy it comes on after Modern Family on ABC. The cast is phenomenal. The oldest daughter on the show does remind me of a younger "Denise" from the Cosby show (her is just something about her look that reminds me of her.). Smart humor, balanced perspectives, innovative presentation. Has me very interested in seeing how the show develops over this first season.

The veterans of the cast Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross could not be more perfect. Keep up the good work and we look forward to watching this show. We understand that we have only seen one episode, and things may change, but I am crossing my fingers that I continue to stay excited about this show. I am VERY happy for this cast. Kudos ABC...just don't mess this up :-)

black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as Dr. Dre, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow, Yara Shahidi as Zoey, Marcus Scribner as Andre Jr., Miles Brown as Jack, Marsai Martin as Diane and Laurence Fishburne as Pops.

Naja Lingere Fall 2014 Line

Naja’s second collection is, yet again, a knock out that is sure to send women into a frenzy. Colombian born designer Catalina Girald was inspired by her childhood summers spent in the heritage rich Mexican countryside. Naja’s Fall 2014 collection is inspired by the artwork of Frida Kahlo, intricate patterns from 17th century Spanish churches, and elements of Mexican folklore. 

Naja is surprising us with every new collection, constantly changing while remaining true to its promise of elaborate details and high quality fabric and production.  The pattern details hide whimsical birds and monkeys along with an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The interior prints on the bra cups, one of Naja's exclusive trademarks, come in bright turquoise and yellow with traditional Mexican heart and angel motifs, which will brighten anyone’s day.

The intricate pieces feature blue embroidery, which was personally hand-drawn by Catalina. The collection is feminine and charming but elegant and empowering. In keeping with Naja's promise to consumers, the collection remains fairly priced with bras ranging from $45 to $75 and panties at $12 to $24.

The Cheeky Knickers collection, Naja’s quirky line of hand-harvested Pima cotton panties, is anything but boring. Designed for the woman who is fun and daring, these panties feature photos and designs like no other on the market. 

Designs include: Geishas walking through Tokyo's Red Light District (a montage that includes one of Ms. Girald's original photographs), Chihuahua panties, a spoof of Ms. Pacman walking through the shopping district in Paris, and a commemorative World Cup panty. Naja is also expanding its clientele in this collection, now offering bra sizes up to DDD, band sizes 36 and 2XL. Every woman deserves to be enveloped in Naja’s gorgeous collection. As always, each panty comes with inspirational quotes written inside the panties on the gusset.

A very special thanks to Dara Kaplan!

Björn Borg Spring/Summer SS 2015 fashion show video and images

In impressive caves on an island in Stockholm, Swedish Fashion Brand Björn Borg, in collaboration with Creative Show Director Bea Åkerlund, treated the Fashion Week audience to an extravagant game-inspired runway show. Celebrating individuality, love and fashion in a digital era, the show served as a teaser for the Björn Borg ”First Person Lover” (not shooter!) computer game, releasing worldwide in January 2015 together with the brand’s SS15 collection.

If you are up on the cutting edge of active fashion, you are familiar with Björn Borg. Edgy, balanced and exciting to wear, watching the runway show is a captivating experience. Although Ideal PR Media could not be in Sweden to see this show in person, we appreciate Sara of Patriksson Communication for making sure we had all of the images and videos from the event .

Channing Tatum fans...get ready for Sony Pictures Classics "FOXCATCHER"

(All images are courtesy of Sony Classic Pictures for the promotional use associated with this film)

Based on true events, FOXCATCHER tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers.  

View the Trailer/Teaser HERE:

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

Flattered by the attention and entranced by du Pont's majestic world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as a father figure and grows increasingly dependent on him for approval. Though initially supportive, du Pont's mercurial personality turns and he begins to lure Mark into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens to undermine his training. Soon du Pont's erratic behavior and cruel psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete's already shaky self-esteem. Meanwhile du Pont becomes fixated on Dave, who exudes the confidence both he and Mark lack, knowing that these are things even his money cannot buy. Fueled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen.

FOXCATCHER is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. As with Academy Award® nominee Bennett Miller's previous feature films, CAPOTE and MONEYBALL, he explores
