President Bill Clinton remained mum on his wife’s presidential ambitions, but elicited audible gasps from the 800-plus attendees at the inaugural Fragrance Foundation Talks when he admitted he no longer wears cologne. But the former president still wowed the crowd, speaking for more than 40 minutes on topics as diverse as climate change, entrepreneurialism and the rise of non-government organizations. Also on the roster was Caryl Stern, president and chief executive officer of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Stefan Sagmeister, creative director and cofounder of Sagmeister & Walsh, and Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity and innovation in both business and education.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
