Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City has become one of the top photo ops of the year for style bloggers, not to mention an important badge of merit and success. In the past, a ticket to a designer’s show represented acceptance and influence within the fashion industry for a blogger. Now, however, it appears that many of these personal-brand empires, big and small, are going to have to find a new way to participate in Fashion Week as IMG, the company ultimately responsible for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, has decided to discontinue inviting many of the bloggers that have become recent fixtures at Lincoln Center.

Pacha New York has become a staple venue for renowned DJs to spin for the night. From DJs like Avicii to Laidback Luke, Paul Oakenfold to Mat Zo, nothing says you've made it as a world class DJ quite like getting to feel the enigmatic New York City club vibe from the dance floors of Pacha. Celebrating their 8 year mark in the New York City nightlife scene is nothing short of a momentous step for Pacha New York's co-owner and President, Eddie Dean.
We snagged an exclusive interview with the nightclub honcho, and he shared what it's like to be behind the successful Pacha name, and his grattitude for the fans who have kept Pacha NYC running for so long.
Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel. The film, titled Batman vs. Superman, will also star Ben Affleck in his Batman debut and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman.
Director Zack Snyder said in a statement, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
EDDIE: Danny and I were in a band together some years back and we eventually all went our separate ways. A couple years later Danny had started writing a lot of songs from the piano and asked me if I'd help record some tracks. Luckily I brought my guitar that first day we got back together and it started the process of us writing and producing an entire album over the next year. That was the birth of Lost In Los Angeles, which was taken from the name of an unreleased EP from our prior project. We then found Clark Souter and we knew we had the perfect writing and performing crew.
You all are well-known for being incredible storytellers through your music. Where do you draw inspiration for your songs?
DANNY: Lyrically, it all comes from that swirling passion of life that makes you want to dream big, love large and live powerfully. And the three of us all share that energy, so the vocals, guitar, bass, piano, synth and other melodies are really a common language that we all share.
Do you have a set songwriting process?
D: When those passionate thoughts intertwine with our collective instrumentation, the writing process overflows like crazy. We can't wait for this next record because we have some much material. So many stories to tell.
We've read that some of your craziest touring experiences come from karaoke. What's your go-to jam?
C: All Right Now by Free. Because it's a classic sexy rock song and it makes crowds do a lot of sexy stuff.
What do you think makes you stand out from other bands?
E: We don't have to answer to anybody but us and our fans, so that means our songwriting is coming from a really pure place. It feels like we are able to translate our emotions directly into our music, which really tends to connect with fans.
You recently re-released your single, Because Of You. What's the story behind that song?
D: Eddie came into the studio one day with a guitar riff that was really cool. I had been inspired by an incredibly beautiful girl (see our album cover) the lyrics flowed out in mere moments, followed by Clark's bass lines. A few beats later we knew we had some magic going on. The song is a reminder that when you keep your heart open, beautiful things will happen.
What's been the biggest challenge that you've encountered as a band trying to make it in today's industry? C: There's so much music released today, and with such crazy frequency. Probably the biggest challenge is keeping up with the frantic pace of writing, producing and releasing music. But it's a challenge that we are blessed to have!

When a world leader and advocate of peace passes away, the world obviously awaits with bated breath to see what Paris Hilton has to say on the matter. "RIP Nelson Mandela. Your 'I Have a Dream' speech was so inspiring. An amazing man," she "tweeted" after she learned of the passing of Nelson Mandela.
Clearly, Paris had confused the former South African president with the already dead, African-American civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. and the tweet dominated internet headlines. However, Paris turned the tables on her critics when it was revealed the tweet was fake.
Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest installment in the Coen Brother's canon, depicts a time and place that not even the most hardcore Dylan fans will recognize. Stripped of its nostaglia and mystique, Greenwich Village is an entirely different character, filled with cramped, cheap apartments, cluttered coffeehouses, and the litter of broken dreams. Most music biopics tell a fast and loose story a young man crooning tunes in the studio and then belting them out in front of screaming fans before succumbing to heroin. Llewyn Davis takes a different approach, using a minimalist style to convey the stark realities of the starving artist.
