PinFanari Restaurant – Santorini, Greece

Well alright, then. We don’t think anything more needs to be said. It’s FRIDAY. There is a seat here waiting for your ass. Fill it.


“The Worst Thing That Can Happen Is You Suck”: Jon Hamm, Nicholas Galitzine Get Real on THR’s Drama Actor Roundtable
What’s worse, a sex scene or a single tear? And who really listens to their agents’ advice? Matt Bomer, David Oyelowo, Clive Owen and Callum Turner debate all the big questions.

On a Sunday afternoon in April, Hamm (now of Fargo and The Morning Show) and Bomer (Fellow Travelers) were joined by Clive Owen (Monsieur Spade, A Murder at the End of the World), David Oyelowo (Lawmen: Bass Reeves), Nicholas Galitzine (Mary & George) and Callum Turner (Masters of the Air) at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica to discuss the lies they’ve told, the parts that terrify them and the stage direction that truly makes them cringe.


Daniel Brühl on ‘Becoming Karl Lagerfeld,’ Meeting the Fashion Icon and Being Seduced by His Co-Star
After a screening of the first two episodes in London, the star shared that he initially had to laugh when he was approached about the role: “Then I thought, ‘Hold on, that could actually be kind of interesting.'”

Brühl started his work on getting into character with the help of his one encounter with Lagerfeld, who died in 2019, early on in his acting career. “I met Karl Lagerfeld only once, and he was taking some pictures of me, and I was so nervous,” he shared. Calling the fashion icon “incredibly charming and cool,” he said, “after two minutes, he made me forget that I was with Karl Lagerfeld. But he was the distant figure who was that persona which reminded me a little bit of Andy Warhol, too. So I saw the whole uniform, the shield that he had created.”


“This Might Be Our Last Conversation”: Amandla Stenberg by Hunter Schafer
Amandla Stenberg knows that the first rule of promoting Star Wars is you can’t really talk about Star Wars. As the lead of the new prequel series The Acolyte, the 25-year-old actor is well trained in combat and in dodging questions. So when her best friend Hunter Schafer joins her on Zoom to do journalism, topics like orgy parties, psychic readings, and frontal-lobe development come up instead.


‘Palm Royale’ Renewed for Season 2 at Apple TV+
“Palm Royale” has been renewed for Season 2 at Apple TV+, Variety has learned.
The series originally debuted on the streamer back in March with the season finale aired in May. It stars Kristen Wiig and Laura Dern as well as Allison Janney, Ricky Martin, Josh Lucas, Leslie Bibb, Amber Chardae Robinson, Mindy Cohn, Julia Duffy and Kaia Gerber, with guest stars Bruce Dern and the legendary Carol Burnett.


Trans actor and YouTuber Abigail Thorn is set to join the House of the Dragon season 2 cast
Here’s what we know.

House of the Dragon season two is coming very soon – next month, in fact. There will be eight episodes of action-packed fun, though instead of ten, which is the amount we got last season.
As we approach closer to the second instalment’s release date, we’re getting more and more excited. Particularly as trans icon, YouTuber and actor Abigail Thorn has confirmed she’ll be joining the cast.
She recently revealed on Instagram that she’ll be portraying Sharako Lohar, the Triarchy’s new commander.


Kim Kardashian bought an iconic Janet Jackson outfit and then wore it in front of her
Kim K is all about rewearing pieces of fashion history.

Kim Kardashian is at it again. After making headlines for controversially wearing an iconic Marilyn Monroe dress to the Met Gala, the Skims founder is once again dressing herself in another star’s clothing. At least she has the star’s blessing this time!
Kardashian recently attended Janet Jackson’s concert in Thousand Palms, California, and for the occasion, she wore the singer’s actual outfit from the 1993 “If” music video. Kardashian bought the two-piece ensemble for $25,000 at a 2021 auction, and had an Instagram Stories exchange with Jackson about it, so it’s probably safe to say the singer is cool with the reality star wearing it.


The trailer for Netflix’s Black Barbie documentary has just dropped
Executive produced by Bridgerton’s Shonda Rhimes, it looks at the journey to getting the doll made.

After the meteoric success of the Barbie movie last summer, we are super excited about Netflix’s Black Barbie documentary, which is out next month – and we’ve just been treated to a trailer.
From Shondaland, the company that brought us Bridgerton and Inventing Anna, and executive produced by Shonda Rhimes herself, the documentary will explore the campaign for a Black Barbie and the journey so many women went on ensure it was made.
Looking at much more than just the impact of a doll on the world, it looks at the importance of representation in the workplace. Here’s everything you need to know.


Barry Keoghan and Sabrina Carpenter just hard-launched their relationship in her new music video
While we’ve known Sabrina Carpenter and Barry Keoghan have been seeing each other for a while, the pair have just hard-launched their relationship in the best way possible: via the pop star’s new music video, ‘Please Please Please’.
The video, a follow up to her single ‘Espresso’ which will both feature on Sabrina’s new album Short n Sweet, sees the Saltburn actor repeatedly being arrested for robbing banks and fighting people with Sabrina continuously going to jail to collect him on release.


Bridgerton has me feeling regal—these are the 8 perfumes aristocracy actually wear
I’ve researched it extensively

The concept of ‘posh perfumes’ has garnered a lot of attention in 2024. Everyone seems to be talking about rich-smelling scents and ‘old money’ fragrances. And whether you love or hate the concept (we appreciate the whole trend is rooted firmly in classism), I can’t help but feel as though the word ‘posh’ has lost all of its meaning. Rather than designate a particular group of people, posh has become a byword for what’s best in life. Originating from the acronym “Port Out, Starboard Home”, the term originally described wealthy travellers crossing the Indian Ocean who chose the more comfortable, sun-sheltered sides of the ship. So, if we’re talking matter of factly, a ‘posh perfume’ is actually one that only the 0.1% could wear—like, for example, aristocracy.


Will Anything About This Year’s Emmys Surprise Us?
With Shōgun now ruling the drama races, Baby Reindeer has the limited-series field all to itself. But TV’s biggest night may offer up some big twists elsewhere.
Before FX announced that more Shōgun was on the way, thereby shifting the feudal Japan epic’s Emmy categorization from limited to drama series, it appeared that at least one top race on TV’s biggest night would be coming down to the wire. Shōgun emerged as a front-runner in early 2024, breaking ratings records for its network and sustaining the best reviews of any new show this winter. Then Netflix launched Baby Reindeer: a small, personal British tragicomedy that somehow became the streaming phenomenon of the season, so much so that it appeared to stand a chance against a series seemingly (and successfully) engineered for awards success.
Now, though, this enticing rivalry will not come to pass—and we’re left searching for intrigue.


A Beginner’s Guide To Collecting Antiques, Courtesy Of Jermaine Gallacher
When it comes to finding perfect objets, it’s all about the thrill of the chase, says Jermaine Gallacher.

I can still remember the very first piece I bought when I started collecting: a wrought-iron zigzag candlestick that I picked up at Battersea car boot for three quid. Fourteen years on, I now have a sprawling collection of 70 (and counting) candlesticks and candelabras. There is nothing on this Earth that I find more thrilling than rooting around an antiques market searching for my next piece of treasure. I might convince myself it’s the last thing I will ever buy, but let me tell you, collecting is highly addictive. Luckily, there are worse vices than amassing candlesticks (or ornamental cats, another obsession of mine), and I’m yet to meet a fellow collector that has managed to kick the habit, or ever wanted to for that matter.


Watch the Trailer for Widow Clicquot
The new film, about the woman who changed the fate of champagne, stars Haley Bennett and Tom Sturridge and lands in theaters July 19.

The history inside a bottle of champagne has to do with more than just the bubbly’s vintage. The new film Widow Clicquot tells the story of Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin Clicquot, who married into a winemaking family and at age 27, after being widowed, took control of the business, making her a pioneer among the (mostly male) entrepreneurs of her time and changing the champagne industry forever.


Queen Camilla Loves Her Brooches
The Queen Consort is known for accessorizing with very on-theme jewelry.

Queen Camilla’s style has remained remarkably consistent over the years. There’s one thing for certain: She loves accessorizing with an on-theme brooch. Whether it’s a ballerina to meet ballerinas, or a horseshoe to attend a race, Camilla uses her brooches very intentionally.


America’s Camelot: a Full Guide to the Kennedy Family
The closest the U.S. has gotten to royalty.

As soon as John F. Kennedy Sr., a young, handsome New Englander, stepped on the political scene in the 1950s, he captured the hearts—and eyes—of Americans everywhere. Upon entering office, his many diplomatic successes cemented his mark on history quickly, until his assassination rocked the nation.
Even decades later, JFK Sr. and the rest of the Kennedy dynasty remains the subject of lasting infatuation. They’ve inspired dozens of films, songs, books, and, with much credit to Jackie O. and Caroline Bessette, remain fashion icons. With many family members following in JFK Sr.’s political footsteps, the Kennedys are the closest the United States has had to royalty. In the words of Jackie O., herself, the Kennedy family was Camelot.


How to Handle Being a Picky Eater As an Adult
One of the best things about being an adult is that I don’t have to eat things I don’t like, yet I’m expected to swallow everyone’s opinions about it.

The world is full of adventurous eaters who are willing to try anything at least once, always ready for something new. Their palates are prepared for paella, pakora, or pâté. And then there are people like me who chose their favorite foods at the age of 10 and the list has remained the same for decades. Most of us who have a limited range of food we eat spend a lot of time apologizing for it or pretending we like something when we don’t.


11 Outstanding Canned Wines for Barbecues, Picnics, and the Beach
Whether you’re in the mood for red, white, or rosé, there’s a canned wine for that.

Much like boxed wine, the canned wine category has gone through some growing pains.
From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, cans were usually reserved for saccharine wine spritzers and other lower-quality serves. Though things had improved by the 2010s, producers still reckoned with canned wine complications like sulfur issues, which often gave the contents an unappealing smell, as well as inconsistent shelf stability.
Today, there’s no question that quality is way up and canned wines are enjoying a renaissance. Sales across the category have surged over the past few years, and is expected to reach $571 million in value by 2028.


An Argument for Why Beer Is Better Than Wine for Food Pairings
Wine may be the classic option for high-minded food pairings, but one writer believes beer should be your go-to choice. Here’s why.

With all due respect to wine, I firmly believe that no alcoholic beverage pairs better with food than beer. Beer’s ingredients, versatility, and the creativity that brewers put into beer’s range of styles can create experiences that evoke uniquely sensory memories of food and inspire innovative pairings.
Let’s pull back a bit to discuss beer’s four main ingredients. Each has its own character, aromas, and flavors, and each is experienced in non-beer ways almost every day of our lives, most often through food.


A Look Back at the Fanciful Fashion History of Tennis
It’s an exciting time for tennis fans these next few weeks. Currently, the French Open is underway in Paris, and the 123rd edition of the tournament has seen pros such as Rafael Nadal and Coco Gauff hit the courts. Next month in the City of Light, the 2024 Vogue World show will also celebrate 100 years of fashion and sport, including a spotlight on the surprisingly-chic history of tennis. Tennis has an extremely fanciful fashion history, dating back to when players donned corsets, floor-length skirts, and even little chapeaus.
Originally known as lawn tennis, the sport first emerged in Britain during the 1800s, and was played by Victorian men and women on the grass. Though tennis pros today often wear athletic-style clothing focused on performance and comfort, the beginnings of tennis style saw players embrace a more, well, flamboyant approach to dressing for the court.


English-Language Books Are Filling Europe’s Bookstores. Mon Dieu!
Young people, especially, are choosing to read in English even if it is not their first language because they want the covers, and the titles, to match what they see on TikTok and other social media.

As English fluency has increased in Europe, more readers have started buying American and British books in the original language, forgoing the translated versions that are published locally. This is especially true in Scandinavian countries, the Netherlands and, increasingly, Germany, which is one of the largest book markets in the world.


New Hunger Games movie based on just-announced Haymitch Abernathy novel coming in 2026
Adapted from Suzanne Collins’ next book, “The Hunger Games: Sunrise on the Reaping” will tell the story of the Second Quarter Quell.

It’s time to learn more about the history of Panem, because Suzanne Collins has another Hunger Games prequel novel on the way — and yes, it will soon be coming to the big screen as well.
Scholastic announced Thursday that Sunrise on the Reaping, Collins’ fifth book in the Hunger Games series, will be published next year. The new novel will depict the 50th Hunger Games, a.k.a. the Second Quarter Quell, meaning it takes place 24 years before Katniss Everdeen volunteered for the 74th Hunger Games in the first novel. In fact, as the title indicates, the new book will open at daybreak on the day of reaping (selection of tributes) for the Second Quarter Quell, which involves twice as many tributes as a typical Hunger Games competition.
