Led by Gigi Hadid, next-gen supermodels fill Milan runways

The next generation of supermodels was out in force on the second day of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday.

Gigi Hadid, sister Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber walked for Max Mara and Fendi as Milan designers came up with looks for the power woman — giving expression to a movement of women showing they mean business as they unite to put an end to harassment in all forms and define themselves as they wish to be seen.

Some highlights from previews of next fall and winter, including shows by Max Mara, Fendi, Prada and Pucci.

MAX MARA'S POWER WOMAN

Gigi Hadid walked confidently for an early morning Max Mara call in a melange of leopard prints softened by wooly finishes.

A spotted sweater was tucked into a tight skirt and worn with a long Max Mara trench. The look was completed with leather gloves and suspenders, worn off the shoulders to show she's in charge.

The punk-inspired looks for a self-assured woman mixed leopard prints and plaids, the fashion house's trademark neutrals and a dab of pink. The collection aimed to break down the barriers between the power suit and the punk world that thrived in rebellion of it.

"We use all those emblems of rebellion as emblems of power," creative director Ian Griffiths said backstage. "This is a woman who is saying, 'Don't mess with me.'"

This silhouette veered from long, full blanket skirts belted for shape, to form-fitting ruched dresses worn over stretch pants or a pencil trouser. Max Mara's stronghold, the overcoat, united the looks, many with fringe along the sleeves. The brand dubbed it "they don't mess with me coat."

FENDI ON POINT

And Gigi Hadid was back on the runway for Fendi a few hours later, donning a prim and pretty dress: a white shirt top that created a statuesque bust topping a long-sleeved pleated dress in a serious brown.

That sense of purity and cleanness was echoed in scalloped white blouses with lace panels and embroidered details.

Cinched waists and box shoulders gave definition to Karl Lagerfeld's Fendi womenswear collection for next winter.

The stand-out accessories were mini-capes — Fendi also called them shoulder slips — that topped off looks, a hedge against cold or rain. They were square-shouldered with a vinyl effect, mini puffer capes or rich fur.

Pleats repeated themselves like a motif: pretty on silk dresses, hidden in the sides of overcoats, or forming a formal peplum under a belted suit jacket or atop a longer skirt.

The double-F logo made a cameo, on off the shoulder dresses, fur coats and sporty mink scarfs.

NEON PRADA

Miuccia Prada showed her latest collection against the backdrop of the Milan night through the windows of the Prada Foundation's new high-rise. A chimp, an alien and a stegosaurus in neon lights hovered in the background through the pane glass windows.

With Bill Murray in the audience, it was hard not to conjure images of Tokyo in Lost in Translation. But the Prada story this season, and in general, isn't about a young girl reflecting her loneliness in an older figure, but of a young woman asserting her own power.

For Miuccia Prada, the neon colors that illuminated the collection offered a sort of protection for women against the night.

"I imagined that the woman can go super sexy in the street at night without being bothered," Prada said.

Bright colors punctuated the looks, with blurred prints prints on coats and dresses that had the effect of neon colors shown through rain-splattered glass. The women's looks echoed the men's collection with black vinyl dresses and neoprene anoraks and vests, but with the femininity underlined by pretty pink netting bows and underlays.

Prada said the collection was meant as a dialogue between strength and femininity, "the constant dialogue and struggle."

"The whole problem of my job is how women can be powerful and still being feminine. It is not something that is not clear yet," she said.

SPORTY, SEDUCTIVE PUCCI

Emilio Pucci's womenswear collection punctuated the brand's trademark prints with blocks of color, peacock blue with magenta, teal with royal blue, seafoam green with black.

The collection, created by a design team while the house seeks a new creative director, featured kaleidoscopic archival prints of tulips and clovers.

Sportier looks featured puffer jackets over printed skirts and quilted bra tops, or overcoats mixing quilting with leather.

Silky dresses with lace panels, and long jersey knits, clung to the figure. Looks were finished with turban-like quilted caps and puffy scarfs.

Tim McGraw Speaks Out About Parkland, Florida Shooting

A lot of celebrities are speaking out about many of today’s tragedies. Tim Mcgraw is no different. He has taken to Facebook to share his feelings on the shooting that happened over a week ago in Parkland, Florida. He writes “ I learned one of the teachers who was shot in Florida at Stoneman Douglas, Scott Beigel, was a friend of one of my associates – they were camp counselors together. What an amazing man who lost his life protecting the children. That is a true hero. And I’m deeply moved by these students who are lifting their voices – challenging us to listen, learn, and make real changes.  #NeverAgain“

CBS names Margaret Brennan as 'Face the Nation' anchor

In appointing Margaret Brennan as moderator of "Face the Nation" on Thursday, CBS News gets the first person with day-to-day experience covering the Trump administration as host of a Sunday morning political talk show.

Brennan, 37, replaces John Dickerson and will start on Sunday. Dickerson recently moved to New York to become one of the three anchors of "CBS This Morning."

Brennan, in an interview, said the Sunday political shows are an increasingly important forum for lending perspective at a time the news cycle moves so quickly for journalists and viewers.

"To be able to step back and give some perspective is value-added," she said.

Brennan has been a panelist on "Face the Nation" and filled in as moderator since Dickerson's exit, along with Nancy Cordes and Major Garrett. She's currently a White House and foreign affairs correspondent for CBS, and interviewed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on "60 Minutes" this past Sunday.

She'll exit the White House for her new job, but leaves with a perspective on how it operates and tries to get things done that may be an advantage over her rivals. "It's not a White House that mimics any other," she said.

Mary Hager, executive producer of "Face the Nation," cited Brennan's "ability to ask newsmakers tough but fair questions in a deft and respectful manner, her sharp news instincts and her tremendous ability to make complicated subjects understandable" as strengths.

Brennan worked at Bloomberg News and CNBC before joining CBS in 2012.

She takes over a broadcast that had Bob Schieffer and Lesley Stahl as long-running predecessors before Dickerson took over. CBS News President David Rhodes credited Dickerson with giving "Face" an all-week presence across digital and social media. "I can't wait to see how Mary and Margaret together will continue to evolve this important public affairs program," he said in a note to CBS employees.

Her competition on Sundays includes Chuck Todd at NBC, George Stephanopoulos and Martha Raddatz at ABC, Chris Wallace at Fox and Jake Tapper on CNN.

"I have thought of the show as being an exclamation point for the week that was and a starting point for the week that's coming," Brennan said.

Springer security director, talk show host Wilkos facing OUI

Jerry Springer protege Steve Wilkos is facing a drunken driving charge in connection with a car crash in Connecticut last month.

Darien police say the 53-year-old Wilkos turned himself in Wednesday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest.

Police say Wilkos, a TV talk show host who was the security director on "The Jerry Springer Show," had a blood alcohol content of 0.29 after the crash Jan. 21. That's more than three times the legal limit to drive. No other vehicles were involved, and Wilkos was alone. He was treated at the hospital.

He was freed on $1,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court March 5 to face charges including operating under the influence.

Wilkos in a statement said he "had a complete lapse in judgment which resulted in me drinking and getting behind the wheel of my car."

New study finds female protagonists decreased in 2017 films

While 2017 may have been the year of "Wonder Woman," but a new study finds that female protagonists were down 5 percent in the year's 100 top-grossing films.

The Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University released its annual "It's a Man's (Celluloid) World" on Thursday. It found that females comprised 24 percent of protagonists last year, down from 29 percent in 2016 despite high-profile releases like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and "Beauty and the Beast" — 2017's top two films at the box office.

Researchers determined that while 32 percent of films featured 10 or more female characters in speaking roles, 79 percent had 10 or more male characters.

"In an awards season when talk about women and gender has been top of mind, we need to separate hyperbole from reality," said Martha Lauzen, executive director of the San Diego State center. "The numbers do not yet reflect claims of a tectonic or massive shift in the film industry."

However, black female characters increased from 14 percent to 16 percent, and Latinas went from 3 percent to 7 percent. Asian females increased from 6 percent to 7 percent.

The study analyzed 2,361 characters from 2017's top 100 films at the box office. It has been conducted annually since 2002.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's relationship had issues before marriage, report says

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux may have been doomed from the start.

A new report in People claims that the celebrity couple’s relationship was riddled with issues even before they got married.

>> Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux announce separation

“Ever since they became serious, the living issue often made them bicker. It was always hard for Jen to understand why Justin didn’t like, or at least could learn to like L.A., when she was in L.A.,” a person "close to the pair" told the magazine.

Prior to their nuptials, the pair had a long-distance relationship because Aniston preferred to reside in Los Angeles, while Theroux wanted to remain in New York City.

“With Jen feeling so strongly about living in L.A. and disliking N.Y.C. so much, she wanted Justin to be happy and that’s why she agreed that he should spend so much time in N.Y.C.,” People's source claims.

>> On Rare.us: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s separation stunned fans, but here’s why friends saw it coming

“One wonders why they got married in the first place,” the person added.

The couple stunned fans on Thursday with the announcement that they were separating.

Aniston and Theroux had been tabloid fodder since they began dating. The two met on the set of “Tropic Thunder” in 2008 and began dating in 2011. After several years of courtship and constant tabloid attention, Theroux and Aniston wed in 2015.

“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” the two said in a statement about the split.

“Jennifer and Justin fell in love hard and fast, and yet they were never really suited to one another. He was a New York hipster that loved the alternative lifestyle, and Jennifer was living a much more reclusive life when they first started to fall in love,” a source shared with E! News. “The initial chemistry between them made it easy for them to ignore their differences and incompatibility.”
