In The News: Ouch, Princess Estelle Breaks A Leg

Not the best way to start a new year…

People magazine has the details.

The Hollywood Reporter shares how this fits in Sweden’s bigger FiftyFifty initiative.

The fashion house released its 2020 menswear fall collection, which leans heavily into Swedish icon, Greta Garbo. Vogue has the images and leaves us with its thoughts, “From Scandi practical pack-a-macs to foulard shirts printed with Sweden-ized maps of New York City, these were handsome pieces in which to frame yourself.”

We heart Bill Skarsgård

Sure, his dad got all the love this week, but we just love this behind-the-scenes video from Yahoo! Entertainment about Bill Skarsgård getting into his Pennywise character. Watch through to the end when you see how kind he is with his little co-star (which is bizarre when he’s in makeup).
