Step out in style with a pair of sneakers or slip ons in the vein of the classic kids’ book characters. There’s something for the current kids in the family, as well as the adults. For the former, characters such as Thing 1 and Thing 2 are screen-printed on soft fabric, while for the latter the design is more abstract, relying on the colors to invoke the warm feeling of the stories but with much-needed support accents such as memory

Eva Longoria and Her Son Santiago Match Again in Cute Tops

We can’t help but love a parent-child matching moment! From father-and-son duos to mother-and-son mini-mes (we’re looking at you Damian and Elizabeth Hurley), there are lots of stars who like to turn heads by twinning with their kids.

Twinning Hollywood Mother-Daughter Duos That’ll Have You Doing a Style Double Take

Read article No one does coordinated outfits quite like John Legend and Miles Theodore Stephens. For the boy’s 2nd birthday on Saturday, May 16, the whole family — including Chrissy Teigen and 4-year-old Luna — all wore white T-shirts featuring Elmo. This came a couple of months after John and Miles looked too cute in matching crab-patterned swimming trunks with a red drawstring on Tuesday, March 17.

But they’re far from the only cute duo in the game! In fact, mothers and sons have also dazzled dazzle in twinning swimwear. On Friday, May 8, Eva Longoria and her

Everything Coming To And Leaving Netflix In December 2020

The holiday season is in full swing, but gathering isn’t exactly a wise move this year. Fortunately, Netflix not only has a sleigh full of festive movies ready for the taking, but there’s so much more to look forward to in December from the streamer, which is keen to keep you bingewatching while avoiding doing the full-on family thing this year (and yes, avoiding those inevitable arguments, always a highlight).

Plenty of original offerings are on the way, including Chadwick Boseman’s final film that promises to win some awards. George Clooney’s also starring in and directing his own Netflix movie, and David Fincher’s sending out a love letter to moviegoing. On the TV front, the hormone monsters of Big Mouth will return, along with a final chapter from the chilling Sabrina Spellman and a Shondaland series that should get Twitter talking.

Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix in December.

Billie Eilish Gets ‘No Time to Die’ Grammy Nod Despite Film’s Delay

Billie Eilish’s nomination for the new James Bond theme, “No Time to Die,” breaks with long-held Grammy precedent: it appears to be the first nominated in the “best song written for visual media” category for a movie that won’t open for months.

The song was released during the 2019-2020 eligibility period, on Feb. 13, in anticipation of an April release of the movie. But the COVID-19 pandemic forced a delay to November, then another to April 2021, so the Eilish song is out there but no one has seen the movie for which it was written.

Eilish is co-credited with her brother Finneas O’Connell for the title song, which peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard charts in America and debuted at No. 1 in Great Britain. They released a video (directed by veteran Bond title designer Daniel Kleinman) on Oct. 1, just before the film’s release got bumped again.

Taylor Swift is releasing an intimate concert film.

The ‘cardigan’ hitmaker has unveiled the trailer for ‘folklore: the long pond studio sessions’, which will be premiere exclusively on Disney+ at midnight PST on Wednesday November 25.

In the clip, Taylor said: “There’s something about the complete and total uncertainty of life and if we’re going to have to recalibrate everything, we should start with what we love first …

“It’s an album that allows you to feel your feelings and is a product of isolation. This could have been a time where I absolutely lost my mind and instead, I think this album was a real flotation device.

“I am so glad we worked on this album because it turns out everyone needed a cry.”

Taking to Instagram, she captioned the video: “Well it’s 11/24 and 24-11=13 so I’ve got an announcement … You haven’t

New York City’s economy is in a downturn, but film production has been a bright spot.

With Broadway dark and concert halls closed, New York’s arts and entertainment industry has been devastated by the pandemic. But film production has been a bright spot, with television and streaming series again filling the city’s sound stages and, increasingly, the city’s streets.

The industry is not yet back to its old heights. Of the nearly 80 series that were filming or planning to film in New York City in the 2019-2020 season, 35 were back at work by early November, with another five expected by the end of the year.

A virus surge could threaten that recovery, particularly if Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo declares New York a “red zone” and orders nonessential businesses closed.

Still, in a pandemic-weary Manhattan, whose streetscapes are pockmarked by boarded-up storefronts and “for rent” signs, the sight of shiny production trucks and the hum of workers rolling equipment on and off film sets is

‘Small Axe’ review: Steve McQueen’s series of five films is powerful act of restorative justice

It’s not immediately clear what’s going on here. But in the sensitive hands of filmmaker Steve McQueen, the point of “Lovers Rock” becomes mesmerizingly clear. Since making his astonishing feature debut in 2008 with “Hunger,” McQueen — whose 2013 film “12 Years a Slave” won best picture — has developed a cinematic language all his own. It’s a vernacular that’s simultaneously expansive and microscopically detailed; ruthless, and filled with tenderness and compassion. And it’s purely visual, especially when it comes to the way McQueen — whose roots are in the contemporary art world — observes and deploys the human figure.

McQueen’s vocabulary is on particularly glorious display in this lambent gem of a film. “Lovers Rock” takes place over the course of one night in West London’s West Indian community in 1980, when the titular musical style — a sensuous reggae subgenre — was at its height. As the film’s

Swift and her collaborators on the album — The National’s Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) — secretly recorded it earlier this year thousands of miles apart from each other and had never been in the same room together until they filmed the “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” special.
