In an extraordinary finale, the models emerged in dozens of cropped couture capes made of everything from white feathers to black jewels, glass crystals, clear plastic, tassels, pearls and beads. "They were a study in the shoulder – the trenchcoat is all about the shoulder, with the gun flaps, and the shoulder was also a big thing for Moore," Bailey told reporters backstage. He described how he spent many hours as a child in Moore's sculpture park, and relished the chance to collaborate with the foundation that protects his works. "I put my heart into this collection," said Bailey, Burberry's creative director and chief executive. The clothes went on sale immediately, after Burberry adopted the "see now buy now" model last year, but the capes will be displayed as part of a new Moore exhibition in central London. 'Making traditional feel new' For all that London Fashion Week plays on its reputation as a global melting pot of talent, it is also home to brands celebrate and promote their British heritage, particularly to US and Japanese clients.

A friend and confidante of President Donald Trump says he believes that the administration has been doing too much, and that theyve got to slow down and tone down its confrontation with the media. Chris Ruddy, CEO of conservative outlet Newsmax Media, has been a friend of Trumps for nearly 20 years, much of that time as a member of the presidents Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. He told ABC News Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics podcast that the administration has been experiencing messaging problems during the first month in office, but calling those issues chaos overstates it. Ruddy said that all of the cabinet members are A or A+ people, but that Trumps inexperience as a politician means hes on a learning curve.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson landed in Mexico City on Wednesday afternoon. He was due to be joined by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly later for talks the White House said would "walk through" the implementation of Trump's immigration orders. Kelly signed the guidelines issued by his department Monday. Mexico's lead negotiator with the Trump administration, Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray, said there was no way Mexico would accept the new rules, which among other things seek to deport non-Mexicans to Mexico. "I want to say clearly and emphatically that the government of Mexico and the Mexican people do not have to accept provisions that one government unilaterally wants to impose on the other," he told reporters at the Foreign Ministry. He said the issue would dominate the talks, taking place Wednesday and Thursday. Mexico will insist that the United States proves the nationality of any person it wants to deport to Mexico, he said.

Major League Baseball is focused on implementing wholesale changes to speed up the pace of play starting in 2018, and Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly told reporters on Wednesday that he thinks a focus on reducing strikeouts could help expedite that process. "Analytically, a few years back nobody cared about the strikeout, so it's OK to strike out 150, 160, 170 times, and that guy's still valued in a big way," he said, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com ). " Well, as soon as we start causing that to be a bad valuethe strikeoutsguys will put the ball in play more." Mattingly added that if teams started to view strikeouts as a bigger detriment to overall performance, it could cause players to re-evaluate their approach at the plate: "O nce we say strikeouts are bad and it's going to cost you money the more you strike out, then the strikeouts will go away.

After a meatloaf lunch at the White House last Tuesday, President Donald Trump made New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie an intriguing offer: Would he like to be secretary of labor? Christie said no, according to four people close to Trump who were briefed on the conversation, which was just the latest in a series of nudges Trump has given Christie about joining him in Washington. Christie has told Trump he is not interested and instead plans to join the private sector after he leaves Trenton next year, two people close to Trump said. Christie’s office didnt respond to a request for comment. The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The previously unreported conversation is particularly notable because it happened during a whirlwind 48 hours in which Trump’s first nominee, Andrew Puzder, lost Senate support, withdrew his nomination, and was replaced by Alexander Acosta — and all the while Christie’s name never publicly popped up.

French artist Abraham Poincheval embarked on a new feat Wednesday by enclosing himself inside a block of stone for a week, adding to the two weeks he previously spent inside a sculpture of a bear. Poincheval is to live entombed in a body-shaped slot carved out from a limestone boulder from February 22 to March 1, at Paris' Palais de Tokyo contemporary art museum. He will eat stewed fruit, soups and purees stashed in cubby holes inside the stone block, which is also equipped with an air vent and items such as a log book. The artist, who has made a name for himself living in enclosed spaces, told journalists that the best way to understand objects was not from a distance but by entering them. "I say to myself, hold on, what is this object really? And you ask yourself the question and say to yourself: 'Well, hold on, instead of distancing yourself and removing oneself from it, let's go inside and see what is really happening,'" Poincheval told reporters.

The reservoir's operators have been releasing water at maximum levels since January 9 but it was not enough to avoid a spillover because of recent storms, Rachael Gibson, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara Valley Water District, said at a news conference. Trash-strewn floodwaters inundated city blocks in California's third-largest city, as firefighters in inflatable boats on Tuesday ferried stranded residents to dry ground. Thousand face mandatory evacuation Aside from 14,000 people whom officials said were placed under mandatory evacuation orders, with many taking up residence in emergency shelters, the city has issued a less severe evacuation advisory to 22,000 people, urging them to leave their homes as well. “This is nothing you ever want to see in your community,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo told a news conference. Residents of the flooded area, which is near downtown and is made up of apartment buildings and townhomes, would not be allowed to return to their properties on Wednesday, Liccardo said.
