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

FOXCATCHER In Theaters November 14, 2014
Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall

OK! TV Presented the OK! TV Giving Carpet Event in NYC with a Great Response

OK! TV held its first Giving Carpet Event at their New York Penthouse which focused on what charities celebrities give to opposed to what and whom they were wearing...but everyone still looked amazing of course! 

The drinks were provided by Ciroc, an Ideal PR Media favorite (bring on the Ciroc Peach!) and the food was masterpieced by the fabulous Chef Wendell Price...who by the way is one of my new favorites after saying to me, "How did you get that tiny waist?" By eating your exquisite food of course ;)

A Real Housewives of NY favorite, Jill Zarin was there with her daughter to talk about cancer charities which they give to. Jill looked absolutely stunning...I swear she looks like she keeps getting younger and more fabulous. Her dress was on point and her custom made hand bag made a statement. Her daughter was bright and bubbly and a breath of fresh air, as she is always kind to Ideal PR Media.

The event was filled with the movers and shakers who make a difference in NYC and some of which whose faces are just as impressive as their hearts. Miss NEw York attended and spoke about the personal connection she has to women's shelters and NBA free agent Gary Forbes, formerly of the New York Nets discussed how giving back was instilled in him from a young age. This was the first of many Giving Carpet events to come to set a new standard for purposeful celebrity gossip. Celebrities were given a very special thanks to Susan and her staff who did a fabulous job with this event!

See the below Video Clip of Miss New York discussing why giving back is so important to her...

The Last of Robin Hood is Coming...

Photo credit: Quantrell Colber

Starring: Kevin Kline, Susan Sarandon, Dakota Fanning ; Written and Directed By: Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland; The Last of Robin hood is about Errol Flynn, a swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man. Flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother – which only fed Florence’s need to stay in the spotlight. THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD is a story about the desire for fame and the price it exacts. Check out the official trailer below. Thanks Sarah!

The Last of Robin hood is in theaters on August 29th!!!
