North West Just Made Her Runway Debut—and Kim Kardashian West Was Front Row

Aunt Kendall, look out.

Over the weekend, Kim Kardashian West’s daughter, North, made her runway modeling debut during the L.O.L. Surprise fashion show in Los Angeles. In case you’re not familiar, L.O.L. Surprise is a line of toys with cute, fashionable characters that is super popular with the under-10 set. The show’s creative direction was overseen by stylist and longtime Kardashian friend, Simone Harouche.

All of the kiddos walked the runway in one-of-a-kind outfits that mirrored those worn by the dolls in the collection. North was “Thrilla”—and she looked absolutely adorable.

“North is completely obsessed with L.O.L. Surprise already, so when we found out there was going to be an L.O.L. Surprise BIGGER Surprise Fashion show, she absolutely had to be involved,” Kim said. “She loves to dress up like her favorite characters, so it was so exciting for her to actually become a real-life L.O.L. doll.”

While it may have been her first time on the catwalk, five-year-old North is no stranger to modeling. She’s currently starring in the #MeAndMyPeekaboo Fendi campaign with her mom and her grandma, Kris Jenner. “The idea was to expand the concept of family, as it’s part of our history, and we wanted other families of women,” Venturini Fendi told WWD about the campaign. “In the case of the Kardashians, they are all three of them very strong women, with strong personalities. It’s an iconic family, who is known for its appearance, but we wanted to bring more of an intimate side to the table.”

And the modeling genes definitely seem to run in the family. Look at that turn!

Seriously, it’s hard to handle this level of cuteness.

North wasn’t the only celebrity offspring in the show. Busy Philipp’s daughters Birdie and Cricket were also “dolled” up for the occasion.

Dear Ivanka: Female Celebrities Are Calling On the First Daughter to Support Christine Blasey Ford

Word out of Washington, D.C. on Saturday, according to the New York Times, is that the Senate Judiciary Committee and lawyers representing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during a party while they were in high school have reached a tentative agreement for her to testify publicly on Thursday.

In the coming days, we are sure to see both sides attempt to galvanize support on social media and beyond. Actress Alyssa Milano spoke to Glamour about her efforts to raise money for Ford. “I hope she feels the love and support and the heartache that women feel in standing in solidarity with her,” Milano said. “I want her to know that if she needs anything at all, that I’m here and I want to thank her for her bravery in doing the right thing for the country, even though it’s the harder thing for her personally.”

In yet another #DearIvanka campaign, other celebrities—like Busy Philipps, Amy Schumer, and Sophia Bush—are using their large social media platforms to call on First Daughter and White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump to get the administration to conduct an FBI investigation into the charges.

Philipps writes, “Dear @IvankaTrump, you don’t follow me on social media. But as a public servant, you work for me. You’ve proclaimed yourself a feminist and a champion of women’s rights. Right now, you have an opportunity to fight for women and survivors. Use your access to demand that Professor Ford’s request for a full, fair, trauma-informed investigation by the FBI be held. Use your access to make sure another abuser is not seated on the Supreme Court. #DearIvanka”

Schumer, in typical fashion, didn’t mince words. “Hey @ivankatrump Were you so excited to wear that pill box hat this week? #fun You will be remembered like Eva Braun unless you do something,” she wrote. “It’s not too late.”

Bush, who says Trump does indeed follow her on Instagram, took a different approach in her post. “I figured after the last one of these calls for you to take action, you’d unfollow me. But you’re still following me!! So, let me use this opportunity to call you in,” she said in a caption. “Rather than feeling called out, try to see this as an invitation to merge your words and your actions. Girl. You can do it.

Milano, “Law & Order: SVU” star Mariska Hargitay, Wild author Cheryl Strayed, celebrity stylist Karla Welch and more are also flooding Trump’s feed.

While her father has doubled down on his support of Kavanaugh and called into question why Blasey Ford didn’t report the incident when it happened over 30 years ago, Ivanka Trump has yet to make a public statement on the matter.

Meghan Markle Hid a Secret Tribute to Prince Harry in Her Wedding Veil

By now, it feels like every tiny detail of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding has been covered. We know the foundation she wore, what the thank-you notes said, and that Harry picked flowers for the wedding bouquet himself. So it’s surprising that a new fact has emerged, one we somehow totally missed until now: There was a secret “something blue” sewn into Meghan’s wedding veil.

In a clip from HBO’s upcoming documentary Queen of the World, the Duchess of Sussex sees her wedding dress and veil for the first time since the royal wedding. “It’s amazing, isn’t it?” she says of the almost 16-and-a-half-foot veil, which was custom made by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller. “The work that they did here is just so beautiful.”

That’s when Meghan reveals there’s something more to the design. “Somewhere in here there’s a piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside,” she says. “It was my something blue. It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.” I repeat: Meghan used fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, as her something blue.



That wasn’t the only tribute in the veil, either. According to Kensington Palace, Meghan had flowers from all 53 U.K. Commonwealth countries represented in its design.

In a second clip from Queen of the World, she opens up about how much that decision meant to her husband as well as the royal family. “[Harry was] really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together,” she says. “And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.”



“It was good news all around, I think,” she continued. “So I hope people liked it as much as I liked helping to create it.”

Check out Queen of the World when it debuts on Monday, October 1, on HBO.

PlayStation Now Adds The Ability To Download PS4, PS2 Games

One of the biggest complaints about the PlayStation Now service (aside from the pricing of course) was the inability to play games conveniently offline. The always-on requirement really put a hamper on how gamers were able to engage with the streaming service, which mirrored the likes of other services such as Gaikai and Onlive. Of course, it should come as no surprise that it mirrors Gaikai given that Sony bought out the cloud streaming service in order to use it as the platform for which PlayStation Now was based. Sony, in recent times, has actually looked into elevating and evolving the platform beyond simply allowing gamers to stream through PlayStation Now. In fact, gamers are now able to download PS2 and PS4 games and play them offline… but there’s a catch.

Over on the PlayStation Blog the senior marketing manager for PlayStation Now, Brian Dunn, explained that gamers can download select PS2 and PS4 games from PlayStation Now… right now.

The ability to download games is definitely a useful feature, but it does come with a caveat: games downloaded for offline play are only accessible offline for a couple of days. After that you will need to log into PlayStation Now again via going online.

This is very similar to how it was originally going to be setup with the Xbox One’s 24-hour check-in. The big difference of course was that in the Xbox One’s case that would have applied to normal everyday use as opposed to games streaming through the service.

The new offline feature makes PlayStation Now more akin to the Xbox Game Pass, which also allows users to download and play games from the comfort of their Xbox One without having to be online at all times.

The downloaded games from PlayStation Now also support trophies, add-ons, expansion packs, DLC packs that have been purchased, and in-app microtransactions. Additionally, there is also support for the PlayStation 4 Pro, which allows for HDR and some upscaled 4K gaming, but I’m not too sure how well that will translate across a streaming service.

Sony has also implemented the ability to copy over your cloud saves from online and use them locally when playing offline. This is a neat little feature that Valve had implemented into Steam some time ago. Microsoft also allows you to capture saves in the cloud through your Xbox Live profile, and when it’s time to play offline you can do so with no worries.

The ability to play PS Now games offline will likely be a huge boon to the appeal of the digital service given that not everyone has a stable internet connection, or sometimes the connection gets shoddy depending on the time of day or when the weather is bad. Being able to bypass the streaming option and just download the game straight to your hard drive.

This definitely makes Sony’s service look a lot more palatable for those who may have been eyeing it but didn’t want to take the $99 a year plunge due to an unstable net connection or an unreliable ISP.

Now that the option has been added to download games, will you buy into PlayStation Now?

Evidence PUBG May Be Coming To PS4

Even though some may believe that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hit its peak, there’s still some potential growth left if it does release on the PS4. The developers definitely had interest in getting the game out on as many platforms as possible, and if the classification board in South Korea is anything to go by, it just might be happening sooner rather than later. Of course, there’s no guarantee that the game is coming to the PS4, it’s just that evidence has surfaced for that possibility.

Wreck It Ralph Breaks The Internet Is Changing Tiana’s Appearance After Backlash

The upcoming sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It-Ralph will move from the nostalgia of arcade games to the complexity of the worldwide web. But since the exciting announcement that the animated film would include a massive crossover with Vanellope and all the official Disney Princesses, the studio has faced one reality of the internet: social media backlash. Over the summer, when part of the scene from Ralph Breaks the Internet was released, Princess Tiana’s differing appearance than that of in The Princess in the Frog angered fans. Disney’s oly black princess was featured with lighter skin and a narrower nose than Tiana has been previously been seen in her 2009 film. A mere two months before the release of the sequel, Disney is finishing revisions to the character to more credibly depict the Disney princess.

According to a report from Wall Street Journal, Disney Animation has been hard at work on revisions of Princess Tiana’s appearance for the scene. The studio sought feedback from voice actress of Tiana, Anika Noni Rose, along with advocacy organization, Color of Change to more accurately depict the Disney character. Color of Change, which focuses on issues of racial representation and political inequality in media, worked directly with Disney in Burbank, CA to review the revised artwork of Tiana– described as now having darker hair and skin, a wider nose and full lips. The organization released a statement commending Disney for deciding to take the time to change Tiana’s features following the backlash.

During a 2017 panel at the D23 Expo, the studio announced that the beloved Disney princesses would be seen hanging out in one room alongside Vanellope. The scene will feature the original voices of most of the princesses, including Mandy Moore as Rapunzel and Jodi Benson as Ariel. The scene will likely be brief, but it certainly creates added excitement for Ralph Breaks the Internet for hardcore Disney fans especially. The film will also feature other sectors belonging to Disney’s properties, since Stormtroopers were spotted in the film’s released footage. It will also tackle the many other corners of the internet, including some dismal ones as well.

Disney has been no stranger to making expensive decisions due to controversies on social media recently. The company decided to cancel the new ABC television show, Roseanne, after their star took to Twitter to post racially insensitive comments along with firing Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn for past tweets that gained attention of the internet. The company has also been criticized heavily in the past for its lack of representation regarding their animated character’s ethnicities and sexual orientations as well. Tiana’s revised appearance can be seen when Ralph Breaks the Internet hit theaters on November 21.

Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson Clapped Back At Haters Telling Her To Smile

The internet can be a dark place, and and the powerful females of the MCU are no exception to scrutiny, often served up by the trolls of the internet. Following the recent trailer release of the first female-fronted MCU film Captain Marvel, a slew of critics pointed out that Carol Danvers just wasn’t smiling enough in the footage. Despite the trailer introducing that the hero fell from the sky and is missing a life full of memories on Earth, some fans seemed to be expecting more flashes of pearly whites from Brie Larson. Some even went as far as rendering fake smiles on screenshots of her character. The Captain Marvel actress wasn’t having it as she cleverly fired back at the internet’s comments, with this:

The picture of a grinning Captain America was featured on Brie Larson’s Instagram story, after being originally edited and posted by Twitter user Jane Ritt (via Uproxx). The goofy edit of Chris Evan’s Cap is a clear jab at the internet trolls who complained that the character just wasn’t smiley enough. It’s a cliché comment that men have been telling women for, and one addressed in TV and film. By Larson showing this altered image of male superheroes given the same treatment, it highlights the unequal treatment of the characters due to gender. However, Larson didn’t stop with Steve Rogers. Take a look.

Doctor Strange was also rendered into a smiling superhero using FaceApp, adding a comical tone to the movie poster for his solo film. The 2016 film followed the wealthy doctor as he suffered a major car accident, losing function in the million dollar hands he used to treat patients in the past. Not exactly the laughing matter, is it? His fake smile definitely feels out of place here, along with this last rendering of the Iron Man 3 poster:

These images were followed by this comment by Brie Larson: “Breaking news: You can be you. That means you can smile or not. You can be strong in the ways you want to be. You can own who you are. If anyone tells you different don’t trust them.” Her Instagram story certainly highlights the double standard approach toward the depiction of women in the media. Since Captain Marvel will have Carol Danvers going on a challenging journey to remember her memories on Earth and mixed in a galactic war between two alien races, smiling certainly isn’t likely.

The response to the first footage of Captain Marvel is certainly a reminder of the prevalent unequal treatment of the genders but the long-awaited addition of a the most powerful female superhero to the MCU line-up is an exciting development to the franchise. Captain Marvel comes to theaters on March 8, 2019.

LeBron James Really Loves Netflix’s Ozark

LeBron James is ready for Season 3, so when is it happening? Well, Netflix has yet to officially renew or confirm there will be a third installment of the acclaimed series. Given its success, it is hard to imagine the streaming giant not wanting the drama to go on for another season, at least. While seeing how the Byrdes handle their future is open to exploration, there is one particular plot point the show left gaping open that has to be resolved.
