Tom Sachs is about to have his first child, a boy he's considering naming James Brown Sachs. The name is important to the artist because he considers the late music icon to be "one of my people," meaning someone who Sachs feels indebted to, someone who inspires him to step his game up as a creator. "It's James Brown who makes me want to make sculptures, not Brâncuși or someone who would make sense," he tells me in his studio as he preps for this month'sObjects of Devotion exhibition, his third solo show at Sperone Westwater Gallery in Soho.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as a Russian spy in the intriguing first trailer for Red Sparrow.
The film reunites Jennifer with Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence and is based on the novel by former CIA officer Jason Matthews.
The spy thriller sees Jennifer play Dominika Egorova who is drafted against her will to become a "sparrow", a trained seductress in the Russian security service, learning to use her body as a weapon.
Emerging as one of their strongest assets, her first target is CIA officer Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton) with the two falling into a seductive game of cat-and-mouse that threatens their careers and the security of both countries.

Retailers across the country are finally waking up to the fact that yes, women who wear above a size 12 spend money on clothes, too!

"Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture."
Nicki Minaj has been making her usual rounds at NYFW this season, sitting front row and joining the party circuit, but that doesn't mean she'll refrain from pointing out the fashion world's flaws. After attending the Philipp Plein Spring 2018 show on Saturday, the superstar rapper took a dig at the industry during the designer's afterparty.
"Thank you Philipp Plein for including our culture," she said, according The Cut. "Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherfucker that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight."
But there's still plenty of room for improvement.
The Fashion Spot's seasonal rundown of runway diversity in fashion ad campaigns for autumn/winter came with some hopeful news — but also showed us there's still a long way to go before everyone can feel truly represented.
Let's start with the good news. Fall ad campaigns were markedly more diverse than previous seasons and, for the first time ever, the number of nonwhite models cast exceeded 30 percent.
Saint Laurent, Coach 1941, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap, Helmut Lang and Nordstrom were among the most racially diverse campaigns.
