Contactless Commerce: How Mittens Came To Define Inauguration Fashion

Inauguration 2021, as PYMNTS has previously covered, was something of an unusual event when it came to commerce. The COVID-19 pandemic combined with advanced security measures meant that many local Washington, D.C. businesses who count on the influx of tourists every four years actually had to shut down at the mayor’s request. “We are 110 percent supportive of what the mayor is doing to secure the city right now,” David Moran, director of operations for Clyde’s Restaurant Group, told the Washingtonian. “Of course, we’d rather be open and do business, but it’s just the right thing to do.” But where some...

Fyre Festival Founder Billy McFarland Started a Podcast and Ended Up in Solitary Confinement

The aptly titled Dumpster Fyre was launched earlier this week and he appeared via phone in an interview with Jordan Harbinger. As the pod’s description of that episode says: In the premiere episode of Dumpster Fyre, Jordan Harbinger interviews a remorseful and seemingly humbled Billy McFarland. Calling from prison, Billy reflects on his mistakes while exposing the culmination of events leading to the Fyre Festival disaster. Well, that landed him in solitary confinement. According to the New York Times, he was thrown in there...

Record low: TSA screened fewer than 100,000 travelers on Tuesday, a stunning drop

It’s no secret that the airline industry has been hammered by the fallout related to the coronavirus pandemic. In the U.S., the scale of the disruption may be best born out by screening numbers that have been  plummeting at Transportation Security Administration checkpoints nationwide.

It was the first time that screenings dipped below 100,000 during the current slump, and is the latest indicator of the headwinds the airline industry faces as a result of the virus.

Lorena Rae is Maxim’s May/June Cover Model

Dress: PAUL & JOE, Earrings: HOUSE OF EMMANUELE Five-foot-eleven German supermodels are seldom described as “relatable.” Still, the word enters my head when thumbing through Lorena Rae’s Instagram. Her pictures seem to be mostly candids, not the work of illustrious photographers. The fresh-faced brunette with the eye-popping figure may be the only model with nearly two million followers who frequently posts photos of herself smiling, not smizing. And what a smile it is.  At 25 years old, Rae has modeled for brands like Versace and Hugo Boss. She has been on the covers of Grazia Italy, Grazia Australia and Vogue...
