Breaking news, trending stories, industry intel.

This is The S/ List.


1. Mark Hamill stars in Rag & Bone’s new newest face. Let’s just say the fashion is strong with this one.

“The 65-year-old actor stars in Rag & Bone’s new ‘Men’s Project’ series, which also features Fading Gigolo director John Turturro, Youth star Harvey Keitel, Russian-American dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and rapper Wiz Khalifa. In a deep-thoughts accompanying video, Hamill waxes poetic about heroes and villains for the New York-based brand led by Marcus Wainwright.”

2. Chanel’s focus on Cuba continues in a new cruise campaign.

“Back in May, Chanel became the first luxury house to hold a runway show in Havana, Cuba — designer Karl Lagerfeld had never even visited the island until days before the event — and flew 700 guests and 45 models to the picturesque (and very trendy) locale for a weekend-long extravaganza to celebrate the French label’s cruise 2016/2017 collection.”

3. Barack Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. His latest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live features a second reading of mean tweets.

“President Barack Obama got in on the trend of famous people reading mean tweets about themselves Monday, including a tweet from the man who hopes to replace him.”

4. Two Bachelor contestants got their happy ending, together.

“The Bachelor’s premise is tried and tested. Women compete for one man and at the end two people live happily ever after.

But two contestants from the 2016 Australian iteration of the show have looked beyond the rose ceremonies, and found a deep love with each other.”

5. If you’re in need of a chuckle, check out this artist’s interpretation of his son’s doodles.

“Artist and dad of a 6-year-old child named ‘Dom’ has created an instagram account that chronicles his quirky drawings, paired with ‘lifelike’ versions hilariously recreated in Photoshop. As part of the ongoing project ‘Things I Have Drawn’, childlike illustrations of animals, cars, people and plants are paired with professionally-rendered ‘real’ renditions in all of their anatomically-incorrect glory.”
