‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ mostly hits the right notes

“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” overstates the charms of NBC’s new musical dramedy, but to be fair, “Zoey’s Better-Than-Average Playlist” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. Still, that’s an accurate description of a show whose mix of music, drama and whimsy should scratch a similar itch to the CW’s since-departed “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” with perhaps a touch of “Jane the Virgin.”

Extraordinary: The Seeding

Jon Sumple

Genre: Documentary

Price: $ 12.99

Release Date: September 3, 2019

Abductions. Reproduction experiments. Memories of seeing children off-planet. The idea of humans participating in an alien hybrid program sounds absurd until you talk to people who have experienced it. Thousands around the world have had reproductive experiments carried out against their will. The most harrowing? The termination of unexplained pregnancies. Memories remain suppressed and fragmented, leaving experiencers confused, depressed and with a profound sense of loss. In others, the memories are visceral and emotionally disturbing. Thanks to increased acceptance, more people are coming forward with their frightening experiences. Are aliens involved in a complex hybridization project where humans are used to cultivate a hybrid population? Extraordinary: The Seeding tells these stories through one-on-one interviews with abductees—brave individuals sharing intensely personal and emotional stories. Through analysis with global ufology experts, the film also explores hybridization, why it’s happening and the impact on humanity. The information presented is intended to educate, entertain and encourage audiences to ask one simple question: What if this is all true?

Makeup Artist Pat McGrath on the Story Behind Givenchy’s Extraordinary Face Masks

What will Riccardo Tisci do next? This was the question on the minds of the designer’s loyal fashion fans as they settled into their seats along the Hudson River pier at tonight’s Givenchy show—and that growing spirit of anticipation didn’t stop at the neck: On the heels of last season’s darkly romantic Victorian collection, where models’ elaborate facial jewelry culminated in a heart-stoppingly provocative expression of beauty that nearly stole the show, the idea of upping the proverbial ante seemed like a bit of a tall order. And yet leave it to Tisci, always the contrarian, to suddenly flip the script: With the dim of the lights and the clang of a bell, Mariacarla Boscono stepped onto the runway—her hair falling straight over her shoulders and her skin stripped almost bare.

Just a few hours earlier, makeup artist Pat McGrath had foreshadowed the sharp change of pace backstage. “Riccardo wanted a softness, but also a strangeness,” she said of the decision to treat skin with a bit of concealer, a swipe of brown mascara on the upper lashes, and a “grayish brown smolder of shadow around the eye” before bleaching the brows blonde for a supernatural effect. Only two girls—Joan Smalls and Imaan Hammam—were being prepped to wear a trace of color in the form of a vinyl-lacquered deep red lip.

But then what to make of the velvet shrouded area tucked discreetly in the far corner, where makeup assistants were slipping in and out of a hidden room holding trays filled with sparkling embellishments? With a sweep of the curtain, McGrath revealed five more models that had been designated with a special purpose. Each one sat patiently as a team of artists used beads and fabric to construct the elaborate ivory-color face masks that McGrath had dreamed up with Tisci for the occasion over the course of the previous week; still another model was having a series of gold and black graphic metal slivers crafted into a gleaming headpiece that wrapped around her ears.

“Spray work, layer upon layer of jewels, bits of lace taken from the dresses,” said McGrath, ticking off a list of materials that were being layered onto the skin with professional adhesive in an upwards-of-five-hours-long process to create a look that was “romantic, organic, and all about pattern.”

True to form, when Tisci’s masked models finally stepped onto the runway—their facial constructions as fiercely feminine and ethereal as their couture statement dresses—they brought the fashion house’s otherworldly vision of beauty brilliantly to life.

For those looking to re-create Givenchy’s stripped-back skin and bleach brows for day, here are the products you’ll need to get the look:
