WSJ. Magazine hosted its eighth annual Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City last night. Ten pioneering talents, all of whom grace nine separate covers of the magazine’s highly anticipated November issue, were honored among more than 250 guests for their groundbreaking accomplishments in their respective disciplines.

Selected by WSJ. Magazine editors, the honorees were:  John Legend (Entertainment), Ralph Lauren (Fashion), Ruth E. Carter (Design), Jonah Hill (Film), Agnes Gund (Philanthropy), Nonny de la Peña (Technology), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Television), David Chang (Food) and Herzog & de Meuron (Architecture).  Each winner was presented with an award designed by the 2011 Design winner, Joris Laarman.

“The ten Innovators we celebrated last night, across nine categories, are all trailblazers in their fields,” said Kristina O’Neill, editor in chief of WSJ. Magazine. “It was truly inspiring to be in the same room with so many talented individuals, each of whom had the drive and courage to break with tradition as they established new ones of their own.”

WSJ. Magazine’s Innovators, now in its eighth year, has become a hallmark of what our readers expect of our magazine – identifying and heralding the most influential change agents making their mark on our culture,” said Anthony Cenname, Publisher of WSJ. Magazine. “I couldn’t be prouder of the platform’s enormous growth, and am honored to celebrate this year’s remarkable Innovators with the participation of our dedicated media partners.”

Tamera Mowry and Husband reveal Niece PASSES AWAY

Thu Nov 8 , 2018
Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam, confirmed Thursday afternoon that their niece Alaina Housley was killed in the Borderline bar shooting. “Our hearts are broken,” a statement from the couple reads. “Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner.” Earlier in the day, Mowry-Housley had been frantically searching on Twitter for information about her niece, a Pepperdine freshman who was at the Borderline Bar & Grill last night when a gunman opened fire. Twelve victims were killed in the shooting, and multiple people were injured. Mowry-Housley first responded to a tweet by her niece’s suitemate, who was searching for Alaina. According to other tweets by the suitemate, several girls from Alaina’s residence hall went to Borderline Wednesday evening to line dance. Mowry-Housley is married to former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. #TamaraMowry #AlainaHousley #TheReal #Borderline
