His 54 works in Brilliant Partners reflect Gus restless search for a style, though Cubism keeps resurfacing, says the Stony Brook museums chief curator, Joshua Ruff. LIFE PARTNERS Judith, 96, and Gus, wholl be 96 later this year, met in Budapest in 1945 when Brooklyn native Sgt. Leiber was stationed there. They married a year later and moved to New York in 1947. While Gus studied art and opened a graphics shop, Judith worked for Nettie Rosenstein, who was credited with inventing the little black dress. Through her, Judith made the Eisenhower connection, creating the pink satin and rhinestone inaugural handbag, one of 121 Judith Leiber creations on view in Brilliant Partners. She was among the first to use glitter and semiprecious stones on purses. Previously, handbags were as utilitarian as the term suggests. The same cannot be said for กระเป๋า สตางค์ แบรนด์ ราคา ถูก Judiths studded and stunning minaudieres fashion accessories that are more jewelry than purse. The joke was that theyre just big enough to hold a hundred-dollar bill, a credit card and a tube of lipstick, says Jonathan Olly, the shows assistant curator. Good thing they didnt have cellphones then, Ruff quips. advertisement | advertise on newsday Practicality was not the point.

| Mon Mar 6, 2017 | 11:14pm EST Storms, tornadoes rake Midwest as high winds fuel prairie fires By Timothy Mclaughlin | CHICAGO CHICAGO A line of thunderstorms packing hail and isolated tornadoes rumbled across the Midwest from Oklahoma to Minnesota on Monday as wind-fueled prairie fires forced thousands of people from their homes in Colorado and Kansas. Police and National Weather Service meteorologists reported some power outages but no initial major damage from the storms carrying winds of 60 miles per hour (96 kph) and hail 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter as they rolled east. A tornado touched down in Smithville, Missouri, a Kansas City suburb, damaging 10 to 12 homes and displacing a few families but causing no major injuries, Police Chief Jason Lockridge said. "Rain was minimal, it was just high winds and what was described as a funnel cloud," he said in a telephone interview. Areas of eastern Missouri and Iowa and western Illinois were under a tornado watch until early on Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said. The storms were largely to the east of an area stretching from the Texas Panhandle กระเป๋า axixi แฟชั่น สไตล์ เกาหลี into Colorado, Nebraska and western Missouri that was under a "red flag" weather service warning for fires because of high winds, warm temperatures and dry conditions. Twenty counties in central Kansas reported brush fires on Monday, some more than one, fueled by winds gusting to up 60 mph, said Katie Horner, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Adjutant General's Department. Ten towns were forced to evacuate residents because of the fire threat, including 10,000 to 12,000 from the city of Hutchinson, she said. Helicopters from the Kansas National Guard were being used to dump water on the fires, she said.
