Jerry Hall : l'ex de Mick Jagger, 59 ans et toujours aussi sexy
Par la rédaction de Puretrend.com
Après un symbole des années 90, c'est au tour d'une icône des 70’s de fêter son anniversaire. Aujourd'hui âgée de 59 ans, Jerry Hall n'a rien perdu de son style, de sa beauté ou de son sex-appeal, la preuve.
Pour beaucoup Jerry Hall n'est “que” la femme de Mick Jagger, celle qui a réussi à rester une décennie mariée avec lui, relation terminée en 1999 dont sont nés quatre enfants, dont Georgia May Jagger. Pourtant, la belle Texane est avant tout l'un des tous premiers super tops.
Avant Naomi et ses copines, c'est elle qui faisait tourner les têtes des créateurs et venait gracier les couvertures des plus grands magazines de mode, de Vogue au Harper’s Bazaar, shootée par des photographes stars. Modeuse aussi, elle fait partie de ses mannequins qui font autant d'effet dans les pages glacées des publications que lors de leurs apparitions en soirées. Partie avec quasiment rien en poche pour la France à 17 ans, ses 183 centimètres et son allure de Barbie lui permettent d'attirer l'attention de la fashionsphère, Helmut Newton lui mettant le pas à l'étrier.
Jerry Hall, des podiums au grand écran
À 21 ans, elle collectionne déjà plus de 40 couvertures de magazine et elle n'a pas 30 ans lorsqu'elle devient une habituée des podiums, défilant pour Diane von Furstenberg ou Thierry Mugler qui en fait d'ailleurs le visage de son parfum Angel dans les années 90, soit 20 ans avant que sa fille Georgia May, ne le devienne à son tour.
Couteau-suisse avant l'heure, la jeune femme au regard perçant s'invite devant la caméra dès la fin des années 80, à la télévision d'abord, avant de décrocher un robe dans “Batman” de Tim Burton en 1989. En parallèle de quelques apparitions, la Texane s'invite au théâtre et comme le temps qui passe ne semble pas avoir d'emprise sur elle, elle tenait encore en 2014 le rôle de la méchante sorcière au (…) Lire la suite sur purepeople.com
Why does Shah Rukh Khan find it pathetic to work for Rohit Shetty?
By Jahnavi Patel, Glamsham Editorial
Shah Rukh Khan who is currently working with Rohit Shetty finds it pathetic to work with the director. Read on to know why…
Ask SRK who according to him is the most punctual celebrity in Bollywood and he says, “I am, but I come on my time. According to my time, I am always punctual; according to other people’s time, I am not punctual at all. Having said that, director wise Rohit Shetty is very punctual. It’s pathetic working for him because he’s there 5-10 minutes before time and you’re always feeling that I will go there before.
Also starring Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Varun Sharma, Vinod Khanna and others, DILWALE will be produced by Rohit and Gauri Khan and is scheduled for Christmas 2015 release.
“We all know we’re not playing our best football,” said Carli Lloyd on Wednesday. “We’re still finding ways to win. I think that’s the history of this team. No matter if it’s good, bad, we still find a way to get it done.”
“Find a way” shouldn’t be the solution for a team this loaded with talent. The defense and goalkeeping have been stellar, but every match without a vibrant offense carries the risk that the U.S. will fall behind and not be able to punch back.
It’s Lloyd who has looked the most lost since the start of the tournament, it’s Lloyd who needs to get going the most and it’s Lloyd who can benefit from a bigger role offensively.
“In order for us to win this thing, in order to show the world what we’ve got, we’ve got to take some risks at some point,” Lloyd said. “For me, I love to attack. I had a decent shot last game. I need more of that.”
Lloyd wasn’t expressly asking for a change, but it’s pretty clear she could use it. She seems torn between moving up the field to be more of an offensive threat, which she wants to do, and moving back, which she has to do in the current system. That dual role should be a single role: attack. Let Brian or Johnston provide defensive cover so Lloyd, along with Rapinoe’s replacement – let’s say Christen Press – can go forward and force some turnovers.
“While the team is attacking, they are worrying about where they need to be defensively,” said Jerry Smith, longtime coach at Santa Clara. “There is not this dynamic, unshackled movement from the midfielders.”
One possibility would be to move from a formation with four midfielders to one with three, which would allow for a third forward. Lloyd was asked about this possibility on Wednesday and she didn’t sidestep it.
“Whenever you have three in the midfield, it definitely helps push on the attack a little bit,” she said. “We’re a bit deeper with our defensive pressure, so it’s a way to get up and link up with those forwards.”
This is the issue with the U.S. attack. It’s static and predictable. There is not much movement, not much to rattle a defense despite all the talent and power. With the way the defense has played, and with the way Hope Solo has played, the Americans can afford to be more aggressive up front without worrying about getting exposed in the back.
“A lot of people would think the U.S. team would do more damage,” Smith said. “Press the heck out of you, turn the ball over and capitalize on that.”
That’s been largely absent. Abby Wambach is a legend in the sport as a target striker but not outstanding at off-the-ball movement, so opponents haven’t seemed disrupted or even bothered. With Rapinoe out, this problem worsens.
Yet that provides an opportunity for Ellis. Adding Brian as a holding midfielder and allowing Lloyd and perhaps Press to move up will not only excite those players, it will disrupt China’s game plan as well. The old saying is “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and here’s a minor crisis that can inject some energy into this dilapidated attack without a complete overhaul. China is not exactly a scoring machine, either, so an offensive gamble has less downside than it otherwise would in a quarterfinal.
Beyond Friday, there’s the advantage of throwing off either Germany or France in those teams’ preparation for the U.S. in a possible semifinal. With Rapinoe and Holiday back and rested should the Americans advance, it won’t be clear to the next opponent exactly what they will bring. That’s an advantage few teams have late in a tournament.
“We’re playing a little more of a direct style, which has been working, but we need to continue to search for our form and rhythm,” Lloyd said. “Because the deeper we get, the harder it’s going to get.”
Winning solves everything, but the U.S.’s offensive issues linger. Ellis has a chance to turn a personnel deficit into a new weapon, and put the remainder of the Americans’ opponents where they belong – back on their heels.
Country-music drama “Nashville” will enjoy an encore on cable’s AXS.
The independent cable network said it had locked up a “multiyear licensing agreement” for the first three seasons of the sudsy series, which runs on ABC and meshes twangy tunes with stories of the turbulent lives of the people who sing them. AXS TV will launch its run of “Nashville” in the fall. The pact gives AXS the exclusive window to show the program on cable in primetime.
“‘Nashville’ is the perfect complement to our growing lineup of music-inspired series,” said Mark Cuban, CEO of AXS TV, which is a partnership involving founder Mark Cuban, AEG, Ryan Seacrest Media, Creative Artists Agency and CBS. “With its talented cast, dramatic storylines and powerful performances from industry icons and rising stars, we are confident that ‘Nashville’ will connect with our viewers, while attracting a new audience of those who may have missed out on watching from the beginning of the series,” Cuban said in a prepared statement. “This will also be a great opportunity for its devoted fanbase to experience ‘Nashville’ all over again.”
Produced by Lionsgate Television, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment, “Nashville” is exec produced by Dee Johnson, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan.
Police raid Toyota offices after arresting US executive
TOKYO (AP) — Police raided Toyota Motor Corp.’s headquarters and its Tokyo and Nagoya offices on Tuesday following the arrest of a senior American executive on suspicion of drug law violations.
Toyota spokesman Ryo Sakai said the company could not comment on the raids because the investigation is ongoing.
Julie Hamp, 55, Toyota’s newly appointed head of public relations and its highest female executive ever, was arrested June 18 on suspicion of importing oxycodone, a narcotic pain killer, into Japan. The drug is tightly controlled in Japan.
Police say the drugs were in a parcel Hamp mailed to herself. Japanese media reports said the drugs were hidden in a package containing jewelry.
Toyota President Akio Toyoda said last Friday that he believes Hamp did not intend to break the law.
It is unclear what police were looking for in the raids, which are common after arrests.
Hamp, who was appointed in April and previously worked for Toyota’s U.S. operations, was in the middle of moving her possessions to Japan. She had been living in a Tokyo hotel, where police arrested her.
Toyota, based in Toyota City, had highlighted Hamp’s appointment as a sign that it was promoting diversity.
Some worry that Hamp’s arrest will be seen as a sign of risks that come with promoting women, or foreigners, setting back women’s efforts to rise up the corporate ladder.
Hamp was not available for comment. In Japan, suspects can be held in custody for up to 23 days without formal charges.
Toyoda said the company perhaps should have helped Hamp more in her move.
Although Japanese Toyota officials have been posted abroad, Hamp was the first senior foreign Toyota executive to be fully stationed in Japan.
It is not unheard of for foreigners to be detained in Japan for mailing or bringing in medicine they used at home. Such drugs may be banned in Japan or require special approval.
Before joining Toyota in 2012, Hamp worked for PepsiCo Inc. and General Motors Co.

L'amour est dans le pré 2015 - Jean-Baptiste, ''un coq'' avec ses prétendantes
Ce lundi 29 juin, dans L'amour est dans le pré sur M6, les agriculteurs et agricultrices vivront leurs premiers jours avec leurs prétendants et prétendantes. À cette occasion, Jean-Baptiste (32 ans), éleveur de vaches allaitantes et de volailles en Midi-Pyrénées, a accordé une interview à Télé 7 Jours.
C'est sans appréhension que Jean-Baptiste s'est lancé dans cette aventure hors du commun et c'est avec joie qu'il confie au magazine ne rien regretter de son choix. S'il ne pensait pas être sélectionné pour l'émission, le candidat a eu le bonheur de craquer pour Aline et Anastasia lors du speed dating qu'il a invitées à passer quelques jours chez lui à la ferme. “Moi qui avait du mal à garder une compagne, là, j'en avais deux ! (…) J'étais comme un coq dans un poulailler”, confie-t-il avec humour.
Très différentes l'une de l'autre, Aline et Anastasia ont toutes les deux séduit l'agriculteur qui ne savait d'ailleurs plus où donner de la tête. “Lorsque les filles sont arrivées à la ferme, je me suis dit : c'est du tout cuit. Tu n'as qu'à choisir ! Le problème, c'est que j'avais autant d'attirance pour l'une que pour l'autre”, admet-il. Mais comme le veut le programme, seule une des prétendantes pourra être l'élue du coeur de Jean-Baptiste.
Vivant encore avec ses parents, le jeune homme est en tout cas prêt à tout pour réussir sa vie de couple, même à les quitter ! Voilà qui devrait plaire à sa dulcinée.
Brazil set up Paraguay quarter-final, eliminate Venezuela
Santiago, June 22 (IANS) Former captain Thiago Silva helped Brazil overcome the absence of suspended skipper Neymar to book their place in the quarter-finals of Copa America 2015 as Group C winners with a 2-1 victory over Venezuela.
Dunga’s men progress to a quarter-final meeting with Paraguay in Concepcion on Saturday, but will be without their talismanic forward for the remainder of the tournament, unless they are successful with any appeal against his four-match ban. Defeat for Venezuela on Sunday saw Noel Sanvicente’s men eliminated, as Colombia progressed to the last eight from third place, where they will face Argentina on Friday in Vina del Mar.
Thiago Silva, who was replaced as captain following the 2014 World Cup, powered home a volley from Robinho’s corner with just nine minutes gone to give the Selecao the perfect start at the Estadio Monumental in Santiago.
And Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 in the 51st minute with a simple side-foot finish from close range after Chelsea midfielder Willian’s excellent driving run down the left and inviting cross.
Venezuela set up a dramatic finale with six minutes to go when Juan Arango’s free-kick was tipped onto the post by Jefferson with substitute Miku on hand to nod home, but there was to be no late leveller. Neymar sat in the stands throughout Brazil’s victory, which set up a re-match with Paraguay, the side who defeated them on penalties at the same stage four years ago.
After opening the scoring and putting one foot firmly in the last-eight, Brazil allowed Venezuela plenty of possession in the first 45 minutes, but Sanvicente’s men were unwilling to go into all-out attack mode because of the threat of counter-attacks led by Robinho.
Venezuela registered just one shot on target in the first half - a flick from Andres Tunez from Roberto Rosales’ 30th-minute free-kick - and despite their more adventurous resumption after the break, they were two goals behind before they could really react.
After Philippe Coutinho sliced a shot wide 15 seconds after half-time and Thiago Silva forced Alain Baroja into a stunning low stop with a header soon after, Firmino struck to double Brazil’s lead.
A flowing passing move saw the ball eventually reach Willian on the left wing, and the Chelsea midfielder’s quick feet saw him get away from his marker before crossing with the outside of his right boot to set up the goal.
Tunez was again at least partly to blame, as the Venezuelan centre-back lost track of Firmino, just as he did for Thiago Silva’s first-half goal.
Sanvicente’s side gave themselves hope when skipper Arango’s free-kick was palmed onto the post by Jefferson in the 84th minute and Miku stooped to head home his first international goal since 2012.
Miku could have pulled off an incredible comeback in stoppage time but Josef Martinez’s cross flashed just over his head with the goal gaping.
