Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend. Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them.

In July, we heard from some of the kids featured in the documentary Check It, which chronicles the journey of a group of young black LGBTQ men and women in Washington D.C., breaking out of poverty by launching clothing labels, walking runways, and putting on fashion shows. Emerging from violence and harassment, they made a family where they didn’t have one.

In this series of videos, various members of the Check It share their stories & their messages for others in the LGBTQ community.

Hi. I love the fics where Louis and Harry start out hating each other and have really hot hate sex but end up falling in love along the way. Do you have some recommendations? Thanks!

- Up To No Good : Harry doesn’t think of himself as a womanizer, not at all. Sure, he enjoys sex, enjoys how women feel underneath him, and by some people’s standards he has sex with quite a lot of people, but that’s no reason to tell him that he can’t have a female PA anymore.It’s especially no excuse for giving him a male PA who’s possibly the most gorgeous boy in the world who won’t even let Harry look at him for too long.Sometimes Harry hates his life.   22k

- Love Is A Rebellious Bird   : Louis is the concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra, Harry is the New! and Exciting! interim conductor/ex-cello prodigy who “has made Mozart cool again” according to Esquire Magazine (Louis hates him immediately, which is definitely why he internet stalked him in his dark bedroom late at night that one time), and Niall is the best.  Zayn and Liam are around too.

- Learning to breathe : He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out.  (110k) .

I could take you down right here, right now—”“You’re red.” Harry interrupts, his lips curving up into a smug grin. “Am I making you red?”Louis purses his lips and absentmindedly brings a hand up to feel his cheek.

anonymous asked:

what's your favorite trope? and could you rec fics from it?

OOOOOH. I think I have a very soft spot for famous!AU. Like when famous!Louis has a crush for famous!Harry and they start interacting (special kuddos if it’s on Twitter or IG) and then they meet and … Well.  I think it’s my fav

- let me make a thing of cream and stars : It doesn’t explain why he’s lying on the floor, with Harry Styles, of all people, planking on top of him.As in, seventeenth most influential person in London, pop-star-turned-rock-star Harry Styles. The same Harry Styles who has had countless model girlfriends, left, right and centre. Also  the same Harry Styles who has been the subject of Louis’ wet dreams since he was about eighteen.(Or: Louis is a Radio 1 DJ and Harry is a pop-star he interviews.)

- Amazing Sin :  Gears started turning in Louis’ head. Purely mischievous gears that had Louis formulating a revenge plan against Taylor. He’d had enough of sitting around and taking it. If she was going to call him a whore, then fine, he’ll act like one for real. “I’m going to say something, and as my friends you are obligated to love me anyway.”  “This can’t be good,” Niall said, Zayn just groaned.  “So I know we have this strict ‘no lashing back at Taylor’ rule with me, but what if I can get press revenge a different way?” Louis asked. He wasn’t expecting an answer, because they knew by now to just go with it. “What if I stole her boyfriend?”Or, the story of Louis ‘Steal Your Man’ Tomlinson.

- Play Me Like One of Your French Girls : Louis is Hollywood’s ‘Bad Boy and Sometimes Darling’, and Harry is the clumsy, endearingly attractive part-time cellist whose cello gets upgraded to the seat next to his on the plane. They fall in love.Also featuring R&B Superstar Zayn Malik, Olympic Gold Medalist Liam Payne, and Masterchef Niall Horan.

- Just For Me: Harry is a supermodel with a fake boyfriend. Louis is the captain and star forward of Manchester United with a fake girlfriend. They should have no problem having a completely platonic lunch between friends.(They do.)

- Three French Hems: In which Louis is a designer at Burberry and Harry spends December wearing Lanvin… and Lanvin… and Lanvin.

- so grab your passport and my hand: The one in which Louis plays football and Harry sings a lot, and somehow that means they’re meant to be. They’ll figure it out soon enough.

- Foolishly Completely Falling : Louis is ¼ of the infamous boy band One Direction and has had a crush on the Prince of Wales for ages. Prince Harry is gay and out and when he spills on a tv show about finding a certain Louis fit, their paths cross and everything turns into a tumult of emotions and anxiety, and the complications when you just want to show the world who you love.

- walk my days on a wireHarry hums, staring at his hands in his lap, and Louis can still feel their smoothness, how solid they were in between his own. “Do you think it’s the same for us? Are we here only because of the likeliness of our jobs? Of our lives?”
“We’re here because we have inventive managers,” Louis says, giving Harry’s leg a little nudge with his knee, but all that’s going around in his head is, I think I’d be in the same spot in every possible universe.  or, when actor Louis Tomlinson used to daydream about dating Harry Styles, this is not what he had in mind.

- but me, i’m not a gamble : A Posh & Becks AU in which Harry is a star on the stage and Louis is a star on the pitch, but they’re both inexplicably terrible at articulating their feelings. In the end, it only takes a season’s worth of failed matchmaking schemes, platonic dinner dates, road trip holidays, and one very convenient David Beckham cameo for them to figure it all out. And if Niall knew all along? Well, he at least has the decency not to be too smug about it.

- sweet, where you lay: Louis Tomlinson is a twenty-eight year old succesful actor living in New York. Harry Styles is a twenty year old up and coming model and coincidentally also the one who turns Louis’ world completely upside down.or, Louis is Zachary Quinto and Harry is Miles McMillan. Falling in love was always in the cards for them.

I don't think anyone is "going solo" next. The plan was always 5H3 then hiatus. It's why the girls wanted Camila to last just one more year and launch with them now. No one is leaving next tho, once 5H3 is out, they're each taking a graceful and well-deserved hiatus. They may consider reuniting for something special in the future. But they'll be sisters for life.

I agree that they’ll all part after 5H3, what I meant by Lauren being prepped for going solo is that once 5H is separated she’ll the first one the label is going to launch, she’s the first one out of LDNA who’s gonna put out an album after 5H,  which will probably happen in 2019, maybe a little sooner, and that’s why they’re building up her image with big collabs, just like they did with Camila.

The finalists in the battle competed for $25,000 and the chance at a single-deal with Roc-A-Fella Records. Wreckonize, who is currently signed to Tech N9ne’s Strange Music label, was crowned the champion. He has said that he never had the chance to speak with Jay or Dame Dash after the event—and he never tried to get in contact with them as it would have been a waste of his time.

The majority of the label’s pieces featured hidden pockets and gun holsters, with Beanie explaining the reasoning for this design in a launch interview: “You know how you put your gun in your waistline and you gotta worry about it slipping? With these clothes, you don’t got to worry about that. It’s already in there.” He also claimed that the clothing would aid those who were getting stopped-and-searched on the street: “You ever been on the block, and you had your pack stashed in a phone booth, or something like that, and you got to go get to it? With these clothes you don’t have to worry about going to the phone booth and all that. Then you can stand there and don’t worry about having to run from the police neither, because State Property can stand the search. [The clothing] has all kinds of hidden pockets, pockets inside of pockets, pocket behind pockets.” But what if the police caught onto the hidden compartments? “It ain’t gonna be like, ‘Its here every time.’ [The pocket locations are] gonna be changed up. It’s not going to be ‘Look, the pockets are right here’ [because] everything is different. That’s my word.”

Big Machine Label Group, Home To Taylor Swift, Moves Into The World Of Spirits

The label that brought the world Taylor Swift is moving on to the hard stuff.

Big Machine Label Group has launched Big Machine Platinum Filtered Premium Vodka. Distilled in small batches through Tenn South Distillery in Lynnville, Tenn., the spirit will initially be available only in the Middle Tennessee region.

“Over the past 11 years Big Machine has provided the soundtrack to millions of fans worldwide,” said Big Machine Label Group president/CEO Scott Borchetta in a statement. “With the launch of Big Machine Premium Vodka, we are now offering a superior product that perfectly complements the music we take such great pride in.”

It’s an interesting move, but is it a smart one? A number of artists are now in the spirits business, including Big Machine duo Florida Georgia Line, who premiered their successful Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey last year. A number of other artists, including Sammy Hagar and Jimmy Buffett have created very successful liquor brands, while a number of other artists have ownership in liquor companies, such as Pitbull with Voli vodka and Jay Z with Armand de Brignac Champagne (aka Ace of Spades).

The reason those partnerships work is because the artists bring a cache to the liquor and their endorsement is seen as a way for patrons to share in the same lifestyle as an act they admire. It’s unclear if the same would hold true for a label, even one that is trying to become a brand name.

Big Machine isn’t the first label to move into the world of alcohol: Interscope Records, home to acts like Eminem and Lady Gaga, is behind Electric Sky wine, which comes in single-serve recyclable containers.

There was a time when certain labels created an identity that represented a Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval of sorts, where fans would buy new releases simply because they were affiliated with the label. Blue Note Records stood for jazz or Elektra in its early days was a brand that inspired loyalty by the quality of artists signed to the imprint. But these days, especially in the age of streaming when most label information isn’t readily available, how much prestige a label name could mean to anyone, especially if artists on the label aren’t tying in somehow, is unclear.

On the other hand, Borchetta is a renegade and is someone who has been unafraid to take big risks and step outside of the traditional accepted role of a label, so this is a deal worth watching.

School Disco – “There was absurd, over-the-top hype before it even began.”

by Lauren Cochrane

Although the Raf Simons label was originally launched in autumn/winter 1995, his growing number of fans were treated to five successive seasons of fairly low-key video presentations before the designer finally felt the time was right to put his vision on the runway. It was worth the wait thanks to a show remembered as much for the over-crowding as the clothes.

Indeed, the School Boy collection of autumn/winter 1997 – which Simons now sees as his full-blown fashion industry debut – was a genuine “moment“. Featuring a group of street-cast, non-professional models, and taking place in a defunct discotheque filled with rickety old chairs (for invited industry legends such as Suzy Menkes to perch on precariously), Simons proposed not only an innovative new way for men to dress, but a remarkably fresh type of fashion show, too.

Hard and resolute, yes, but still, for the first time in a long time, Louis can kind of see the old Harry in him. The soft, directness of his gaze, the hesitant smile he gives to Lou, the way he wrings his ridiculously large hands in his lap.He’s a little bit the eager sixteen year old puppy dog again, his innocence and sweetness resurrected miraculously, and Louis freezes in place. He was prepared to face the asshole Harry. He was prepared to meet a whole new Harry.

The boy hisses and swipes at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot.

That is before Harry pushes him into a bathroom stall and drops down to his knees in front of him after the gig.Louis is more than persuaded to go back his flat for more.What happens after isn’t what he expected, but then again, Harry isn’t at all what he expected either.

Lieve Van Gorp spring—summer 1995, autumn—winter 1997—98, spring—summer 1997, autumn—winter 1997—98, spring—summer 1998.

In 1987 Van Gorp left the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp with a degree in Fashion Design. After various jobs as a stylist for Belgian high street labels, in 1991 she launched her first collection of leather accessories, consisting of belts and bags. Only in March 1995 did she expand into a complete women’s prêt-à-porter collection. Soon after she opened her own shop in Antwerp and, in January 1997, launched a collection for men. During these busy years of development, she also took on a teaching post at her old school. 

In March 1999 she presented her first catwalk show in Paris, for both her women’s and her men’s collections. Her collection for men grows out of the concepts developed for the women’s line. Elements are re-used, almost as an afterthought, which make the men’s collection seem to be a season ‘behind’. 

Lieve Van Gorp’s collections blend icons of Catholicism with rock star cult. This mixture is carefully expressed in the ‘merchandising’, which always accompanies her collections. Posters, pins with skulls, the letter ‘L’, exemplify her universe. True to her statement “In my dreams I’m a rock star, but unfortunatly I can’t sing”, Lieve Van Gorp mentions as sources of inspiration rock ‘n’ roll and country & western music, headstrong women like Madonna, Courtney Love, K.D. Lang, Patsy Cline, Skunk Anansie and Patricia Hearst, and men like Jesus Christ, Che Guevara, Willy De Ville and Elvis Presley. 

Working with diversity within one creation is Lieve Van Gorp’s strength. Emotion and agression, softness and bondage, films versus real life, male and female and everything in-between, conservatism and avant-garde, tradition and innovation, leather, love and trust, Gothic rock and classicism…, all these are parts of the Lieve Van Gorp puzzl
