UNICEF Ambassador Selena Gomez Visits Nepal

May 29th, 2014

Unknown-1

The Actress and singer meets with child survivors of exploitation and abuse.

UNICEF Ambassador Selena Gomez has just returned from a visit to Nepal, where she traveled to bring attention to children in need.

A UNICEF Ambassador since 2009, Selena has played an active role in advocating for the world’s most vulnerable children.

“This visit to Nepal was powerful—at times, devastating and heartbreaking, but also incredibly inspiring,” said Selena Gomez. “At first when you witness children living in extreme poverty you wonder how it is possible that they can be deprived of their basic human needs.
Then you talk to these children and you see hope, promise and a bright future. This generation of children believes they can make a difference, and they take action.”

During her trip, Gomez visited the child-friendly Satbariya Rapti Secondary School, supported by UNICEF, that has a safe, interactive, creative and fun learning environment.

“It was amazing to learn from these young boys and girls about how they are influencing their peers as well as adults on issues that have an impact on their lives,” said Gomez. “Many of the children I talked to expressed a desire to be future leaders.”

Music was in the air at the Satbariya school as the child club members broke into a Nepali folk song, playing musical instruments presented to them as a gift by Gomez. She later joined students as they performed traditional dances of the Tharu community.

In the village of Kohalpur, Gomez met with young people who had been recruited into the armed conflict that ended eight years ago and learned how, with UNICEF’s support, they reintegrated back into their families and society. “It was difficult to hear about the harsh lives these girls led in the camps, but I was inspired by their motivation to build a better future,” said Gomez.

Calling the trip an “eye-opener,” Gomez said, “The children of Nepal have taught me that with a lot of passion, optimism and hard work, anything is possible. That’s the message I would like to convey to young people across the world: Believe in your dreams and pursue them.”

Selena Gomez is a recording artist, actress and designer. A UNICEF Ambassador since 2009, she has played an active role in advocating for the world’s most vulnerable children by participating in numerous campaigns, events, and initiatives on behalf of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, including headlining charity concerts and serving as a previous spokesperson for the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign. This was Gomez’s third trip on behalf of UNICEF. She previously visited Ghana and Chile.

The hosts spoke about their work with the organization and urged others to get involved. Austin Nichols shared fun factoids about sharks “You’re way more likely to get struck by lightning than be attacked by a shark. You’re more likely to be killed by a jellyfish. My favorite is, you’re more likely to be killed by a vending machine than killed by a shark!”
“I got the chance to swim with a pod of wild Atlantic spotted dolphins” mentioned Cosgrove. “They swam right next to me.”
Recording artist and Nickelodeon star Drake Bell performed songs off his new album, Ready Steady Go! The evening was concluded by a live set from DJ Connor Cruise.Xo4Vow7dpPcMEDMxZbfwur3Vll-RvtfWiUX96Z5AK-M=w142-h202-p-nofwwYGp7B6a7GRyerK2WnY5ctp4UUVwqx_AKmddPRv7o=w139-h202-p-noScreen Shot 2014-05-17 at 2.52.38 PM44bMaMgxxF8nBqePuR9aXb3NiwfC4CcOHsU3HLODmZI=w231-h184-p-no

The Rexmere: Famed Society Hotel in Catskills Burns

May 11th, 2014

gilboa-school-trip-1024x496Richard Johnson wrote a story on 9th about something my brother and I have been attempting to sit on for some weeks. Hunt was in contract to buy the famed Rexmere hotel in the Catskills. imagesAnd Fi, my wife, and I would have been allowed to use apartments as a ski getaway; it was twenty minutes from the slopes. Hunt had yet to close and a week before he did, very unexpectedly the hotel burned to the ground. Hunt is devastated, because the whole idea was to make it his life’s work to restore this grand old structure. As Richard reports, it was an enormous fire. And this old society getaway went up in flames faster than one could ever have imagined. Hunt couldn’t be sadder. As Johnson reports, 300 firemen fought the blaze. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Richard was very fair as always in the reporting. He really is a true gent. I thought these old pictures would help tell what a sad, sad loss this really was.Unknown images-1

White Tie Mania

May 3rd, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 10.15.43 PMInspired by the tailor I am using in the bowels of the fashion district, I went back out shopping and found beautiful mother of pearl cuff links at a Japanese store on Madison, white silk pocket square at Charles Tyrwhitt, and, thanks to Mitch Owens (Merci!), long silk socks at Brooks brothers. The amount of details when you’re going full formal is simply not for this day and age. . . . Paul Cavaco suggested I really bring it when it comes to the tailoring. “You’ll do it once and will always have it.” And I found this guy in the deep basement of a fabric store with two seamstresses working for him. And he had me bring the pants in slimmer at the bottom. I had to visit three tailors before one actually knew how to expertly slim down tails (by Monday at 1pm). I even have spectacles from the 1800s. So much build up, I’m really hoping this ends well. ..
