Aspiring designer Andrew Warren Discusses Curated Crew Of Privileged Friends With DuJour Magazine

DuJour_AndrewWarren

(DuJour) Andrew Warren, the 22-year-old grandson of fashion mogul David Warren, who made his name in the ’70s with the sort of prim and polished “social occasion” dresses that women bought at Bloomingdale’s and Saks. The younger Warren is a budding fashion mogul himself, with a collection of edgy ready-to-wear pieces he launched in 2013 called Just Drew. Warren’s friends, a young, beautiful, pedigreed group that appears throughout Warren’s widely followed Instagram account.

Andrew on his notable friends: He knows his friends are interesting to strangers. He handpicks his crew—which at the moment includes Gaia Matisse, Kyra Kennedy, Reya Benitez and Tiffany Trump—as if putting together a jigsaw puzzle, “weeding out,” as he says, the ones who don’t fit

Reya Benitez, the 23-year-old daughter of John “Jellybean” Benitez. Her father was the resident DJ for Studio 54 and has produced tracks for Madonna and Whitney Houston. “Everyone always says [my DJ name] should be Little Bean, but I want to create my own name without any help from my father. I don’t want to be overshadowed by him.”

Kyra Kennedy, the 19-year-old daughter of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was scooped up by Warren in Aspen last December and quickly became a fixture of Warren’s feed. Her dad has called and requested that she “clean up her Instagram,” but as far as Kennedy, a freshman at FIT, is concerned, she’s just having a good time.

Tiffany Trump, the Donald’s second youngest and only child with ex-wife Marla Maples, says, “I don’t know what it’s like to have a typical father figure,” says Trump. “He’s not the dad who’s going to take me to the beach and go swimming, but he’s such a motivational person.” She’s debating whether to go to business school or law school after college.

University Of Alabama Sorority Forced To Pull Controversial Recruitment Video

sorority-video

(PCM) The ladies that belong to the University of Alabama’s sorority chapter Alpha Phi made the decision to take down their incredibly controversial four minute long recruitment video after receiving a ton of backlash online. Many felt that the video not only objectified women, but also was incredibly lacking in overall diversity.

The video is literally sickening and yet with all the controversy surrounding it the University of Alabama added 2,261 women to its’ sorority system over the weekend. It must be noted however that only 241 of those women were a minority. Alpha Phi is the fourth-oldest sorority in the country, with alumni that include state legislators, civic leaders, and the first female treasurer of the United States.

Deborah Lane, the associate Vice President for University Relation for the University of Alabama released the following statement in regards to the Alpha Phi video which says “This video is not reflective of UA’s expectations for student organizations to be responsible digital citizens. It is important for student organizations to remember what is posted on social media makes a difference, today and tomorrow, on how they are viewed and perceived”

Allure Magazine Receives Backlash For Afro Hair Feature

Allure-Afro

(PCM) Women’s fashion and beauty magazine Allure has received quite a bit of backlash via social media for a feature they published titled “You (Yes, You) Can Have An Afro” that featured a white model sporting the famed 70’s style Afro hairstyle. The article is further criticized because it made no mention at all about the hairstyles origins.

Many felt that the article overall was disrespectful and they feel that the editorial staff at Allure lack any type of cultural diversity. The history of the Afro hairstyle dates back to the 1970’s “Black Is Beautiful” movement which protested typically white beauty standards that mostly featured completely straight hair.

Allure is defending the article claiming that it is more about women using various hairstyles to express their individual style and creativity. They acknowledge the Afro’s cultural significance, but claim the article was more focused on an individuals personal self-expression.

It is also worth noting what was pointed out by HelloBeautiful.com editor Allison McGenva that the style featured on the model for the article is truly not even an Afro, it is actually a twist-out!

Semicolon Tattoos Soar in Popularity

Semicolon-tattoo1

(PCM) The hottest new tattoo trend is the semicolon and the reason might just surprise you! Obtaining a semicolon tattoo has now become a bit of global phenomenon as a way to promote an movement known as Project Semicolon.

Project Semicolon is a faith-based non-profit movement that hopes to promote love and hope to individuals who are suffering from depression, suicide, addiction, and self-injury. The movement was founded by a woman named Amy Bleul, as a tribute to her late father who tragically decided to end his own life.

The semicolon was chosen at the symbol for the movement because of it’s literal definition. A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life, at least in regards to the symbolic tattoo.

While the initial Project Semicolon movement was faith-based they stress that those who wish to participate are free to be any religious denomination and people of any faith or belief system are welcome. The overall message is to spread hope and love to anyone who may need it!
