HARRY STYLES KEEPS CUSTOM PERFORMANCE COSTUMES IN ‘FROZEN VAULT’; HIS STALKER ARRESTED – (10/22/2019)
Harry Styles goes to great lengths to protect his one-of-a-kind outfits.
During an interview with British GQ, one of the 25-year-old singer’s designers, Harris Reed – who created the look in the “Lights Up” music video, revealed that Harry keeps Harris’ “one-off” designs, among others, in a cryogenic closet with 24-hour surveillance somewhere in England.
“I can’t say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive,” Harris shared with the magazine. “It’s basically like a giant refrigerator – a frozen vault…The clothes all have 24 hours surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically done for his outfits, and they have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them.”
Harry wore several outfits designed by Harris on his first solo tour, and the singer reassured him that a lot of the custom pieces are being held in this frozen closet. Harris said it was surreal.
Meanwhile, a 26-year-old homeless man has been convicted of stalking Styles outside his London home. Pablo Tarazaga-Orero avoided jail time but has been banned from going near Harry, his home or business addresses, including anywhere where he is performing. He is also banned from posting about the singer on social media and must complete a 12-month community order and a 30-day rehab program.
During the trial, Harry said he first encountered Tarazaga-Orero sleeping outdoors in his north London neighborhood, and offered him money for food or a hotel. Harry bought Orero food the following day, but said he then stopped interacting with him after that because his “odd” behavior made him feel “a little uneasy.” After that, Harry said he began to see Orero almost every day. He eventually started following Harry, leaving the singer feeling “scared” and “very uncomfortable.”
The defendant told the court he never intended to stalk Harry but “just wanted the money he offered me.” He also claimed Harry had propositioned him.

MIKE POSNER COMPLETES HIS WALK ACROSS AMERICA AFTER SIX MONTHS AND A SNAKE BITE – (10/22/2019)
Mike Posner has just crossed the entire United States, coast to coast – on foot.
The singer-songwriter trekked 2,851 miles over the course of six months, starting in Asbury Park, New Jersey, on April 15th and ending in Venice Beach, California, on Friday.
“My name is Mike Posner and I walked across America,” Posner said on Twitter. “Keep Going.” Posner celebrated the end of his journey by jumping into the Pacific Ocean and enjoying a well-deserved massage on the beach.
“I don’t even know what this experience means in the context of my life yet,” Posner said in a Facebook post near the end of his journey. “I do know that I am not the same person I was when I started. I’m harder. I’m more authentic. I’m more real. I’m more myself. That’s the only trophy I need.”
On his website, Posner said the journey had a three-part mission: to “enjoy my life and help others enjoy theirs,” “be as authentic to other people as possible,” and “help others to experience transcendence.” He also aimed to spend more time listening to people and invited others to participate – even for just a mile or two.
Not even a nasty rattlesnake bite could keep Posner from completing his mission. In August, Posner had to be airlifted to a Colorado hospital after being bitten by a rattlesnake. It took several weeks of rehabilitation before he could continue his journey.
When he wasn’t walking, he meditated and did a lot of yoga. Posner documented the experience on social media.
On October 9th, Posner released a 16-track mixtape titled Keep Going, his mantra during the journey, The tape features other artists, including Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Logic.
“I created this project, these songs and these affirmations to remind myself who I am when things get hard. I hope they can provide you the same strength,” he said at the beginning of the album.

INSIDE JENNIFER LAWRENCE’S LUXE WEDDING – (10/22/2019)
X-Men star Jennifer Lawrence married fiancé Cooke Maroney, 34, in a fairytale wedding this weekend at the luxe Belcourt of Newport estate in Newport, Rhode Island. Details of the 29-year-old Oscar-winner’s wedding are starting to emerge.
The wedding included 150 guests, who toasted the happy couple and dining on a menu with a variety of hors d’oeuvres and multiple desserts, including s’mores.
The home was designed by American architect Richard Morris Hunt in 1894, and was inspired by Louis XIII’s hunting lodge at Versailles.
The guest list included Adele, Amy Schumer, Sienna Miller, Kris Jenner, Emma Stone and Ashley Olsen.
The afterparty got going around 12:30 am, with Boston’s Baddest Food Truck and Maine-ly Lobstah providing snacks from their food trucks.
“It was an all-night party. Jen and Cooke where the last people to leave at 5:30 a.m.,” a source tells People. “They waited until all the guests were gone so they could personally say goodbye. When they left, Jen looked happy, but also a bit tired. She also looked stunning in a jeweled dress.”
Lawrence wore a dress by Dior, and Page Six reports that she set aside a room just for the dress.
“The Dior design team flew in directly from Paris the day before J.Law tied the knot, and the gown had a private guest room booked for safekeeping at Newport’s historic Hotel Viking for the evening,” a source told Page Six Style.
The outfits selected by her well-heeled guests were equally delightful. Row founder Olsen donned a dramatic Marc Jacobs tulle gown and Miller wore a red off-the-shoulder Johanna Ortiz dress with balloon sleeves and a playful trumpet hemline.
