Abortion Activists Disrupt Joel Osteen’s Church Service, Women Stripping Their Clothes While Cursing Loudly

Three abortion rights activists interrupted worship services at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas on Sunday morning.

The protest was apparently in response to a leaked US Supreme Court draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that indicates the court is preparing to strike down the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion a constitutional right in America.

First reported by Politico, that ruling could come down sometime this month.

The activist group Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights posted a short video to social media of their interruption of the Lakewood Church’s services Sunday afternoon.

The video, recorded with an iPhone from a floor seat, captures the start of Osteen’s message as the congregation stands to repeat a prayer with Osteen before he begins his message.

A man and a blonde woman appear in the video standing in front of the person with the phone. The woman

Givenchy Resort 2023 Collection | Vogue

If Matthew M. Williams’ runway shows feel like stadium concerts, his pre-collections are the total opposite. Fuss-free in every way, they strip his Givenchy aesthetic down to its core: stark, streamlined, and distinctly contemporary clothes with industrial accents. “It’s very direct in how people would wear the looks. It’s not over-styled,” he concurred, during an appointment for his spring 2023 proposal in the house’s Avenue Montaigne showroom. The women’s opening look was a literal case in point: a finely knitted black stretch suit with flared trousers that created a languid silhouette, worn with just a bra. It had a kind of Gen Z exec realness—austere but sexy—likewise reflected in clean-cut blazers and leather jackets, polished workwear skirts, perfected baggy jeans, and cultivated cargo trousers.

Williams doesn’t talk about the inspirations or meaning behind the clothes he designs. “I really just design from instinct: what I think is cool; how I

Giinawind Co. showcases ribbon skirts designs in fashion show

Many models and designers dream of the glitz and glam of a Paris runway.

But an Indigenous-run art collective in Thunder Bay is bringing another dream to life, in the form of the cedar runway.

As Indigenous History Month kicked off last week, Giinawind Co. held a fashion show for their 13 Moons Exhibit. Thirteen First Nation designers were invited to create their own ribbon skirts, along with a few ribbon shirts, with each one representing a different phase of the moon.

Fawn Meshake is a cultural outreach worker at Giinawind, and said she got the idea during one of their weekly drum nights.

“I was sitting here listening to the drumming and I had a vision of the skirts hanging on the walls here because I always thought it’d be nice to fill it up with more artwork,” said Meshake.

“There’s so many skirt makers in Thunder Bay, there

Thom Browne on Growing up in an Ultra-American Family and Finding Authenticity in Fashion

I have to say, I feel so lucky that I am part of this community. I feel like I’ve been exposed to so much more in life and so many more interesting people. I am where I am right now because of who I am, and I feel incredibly lucky and fortunate to have had the experience that I’ve had over the years, whether here in New York or in Los Angeles. I think our industry is very open and inclusive, and is accepting and encouraging in regards to being true to yourself.

I’ve always wanted to design for everyone. I think one of the most important things within my collections is the idea of ​​people finding themselves. I’ve always encouraged that, and I’ve always designed with that in mind, so it’s really important to me.

I think the way I have approached gender over the years has definitely evolved.
