Chelsea Handler celebrates 46 in her birthday suit

Chelsea Handler is living her best life as she skis her way through Canada in her birthday suit.

The comedian posted a video of herself on Instagram on Thursday in which she’s skiing down a hill in nothing but pasties, underwear and a helmet decorated with both Canadian and American flags, a celebration of her 46th birthday. But while sharing an ode to both of her homes — as she’s currently living in Canada on a work visa — Handler also shared a message of self love.

“It’s important to stay hydrated as well as relaxed, and it’s also important to celebrate your body no matter what age or size,” she captioned the video. “This is 46 (with some peptides) and as I transition into a mountain woman I want to give a big shout out to the two countries I have the strongest ties to.”

Handler recently shared the

Mary Davis, Former Graduate School Dean, Files $10M Claim Against Joyce Brown and FIT

The Fashion Institute of Technology had no comment in response to a complaint filed by Mary Davis, its former graduate school dean, against the college and Joyce F. Brown, its president.

Davis, who was dismissed from her position last November, filed a complaint in the Supreme Court of the State of New York County on Feb. 19 over what she claims are false statements over her leadership failures arising out of a fashion show that FIT sponsored on Feb. 7, 2020, that featured work by alumni of FIT’s master of fine arts in fashion design program. The show resulted in criticism about racial insensitivity with respect to accessories used by one of the designers, Junkai Huang.

Davis is seeking an amount to be determined at trial, but no less that $10 million.

According to an FIT spokesman, “FIT does not comment upon matters in litigation except to say that

Trust Me, These Are the 5 London Fashion Week Trends We’ll Actually Wear

Over the past five days, British brands have been showcasing their autumn/winter 2021 collections as part of this season’s digital-only London Fashion Week. It looks a little different than usual (there are no spectacular venues, no street style, no audiences whatsoever), but this does mean that the focus is solely on the clothes and creativity. There is certainly no shortage of creative imagination in this city of ours. If I were to sum up the season in one collective theme, it would be “all of the clothes we haven’t been able to wear for the past 12 months.” Think ball gowns, sequins, feathers, wildly impractical boots and skirt suits. These are outfits designed for a post-lockdown London knees-up, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited.

While many of us won’t be wearing the tulle gowns and sequin mermaid dresses, there are some items that I am certain will translate
