New Real Housewives of New York City cast revealed, and it’s a stylish one
Say hello to the new names you’ll be hearing a lot about. At this weekend’s BravoCon, Andy Cohen introduced the cast members for season 14 of RHONY. The revelation comes after Bravo confirmed it would entirely reboot the series, which was drawing criticism over controversial storylines. And not only was the cast overhauled, but it appears that the upcoming series will give a more diverse view of the lifestyles of the cosmopolitan city’s leading ladies. Enter: influencer Sai De Silva, influencer and Jewish advocate Lizzy Savetsky, former J.Crew president and entrepreneur Jenna Lyons, real estate agent and home renovation tastemaker Erin Dana Lichy, fashion publicist Jessel Taank, model and philanthropist Ubah Hassan, and marketing professional Brynn Whitfield. “We really were waiting to get the ‘RHONY’ reboot right, and we really wanted to tell new stories, and we wanted to capture the energy in New York City, and I’m really happy with where we’re at,” Cohen told PageSix. “It’s all over the city, and it’s aspirational. I think it’s legit. We’re definitely expanding beyond the the Upper East Side with these women.” The show will begin shooting soon, and is set to air in 2023.

Keke Palmer covers PORTER
Multi-faceted star Keke Palmer sat down with digital title PORTER and opened up about her long and varied career that already spans two decades. Having recently turned 29, the Midwest-born actress spoke about how her joy being cast in Jordan Peele’s Nope and how it re-introduced her to the mainstream. “Fans notice me from different places all the time,” she told the mag. “Some people don’t even know I’ve been performing since I was a kid.” Palmer also expressed hope that her 30s will be more of a “breeze”—”There was a lot going down [in my twenties], but you learn so much,” she said—and the advice she’d give to young girls looking to follow in her footsteps. “In my position, the biggest thing I want to tell all little girls is to never carry the weight of being Black, or being dark-skinned, as something that’s going to hold you back.” Read the full feature here.

Gigi Hadid discusses why the time was right to start her brand
Also headlining the Vogue Forces of Fashion event at Spring Studios was an industry mainstay who needs little introduction. Global supermodel Gigi Hadid sat down with Gabriella Karefa-Johnson to talk more about the labor of love that is her new cashmere brand, Guest in Residence. While she was dreaming up her own company for a while, Hadid said it was really her journey to motherhood that cemented the fact that it was time to start something. “You can’t model forever. I was creative and that is where I saw my life going,” she said. “I already had been thinking about cashmere, but I think it [pregnancy] just made me think about how much more settled I would feel to have an office space job. I can take my daughter there with me…it’s a lot more sustainable than [having] the anxiety of being in a different country every week and having a kid.” And speaking of sustainability, the 27-year-old told friend and collaborator Karefa-Johnson that it was incredibly important that the label be rooted in meaningful principles. “[It was expected for me to come out with something that was more a fast-fashion type situation,” she said. “People use that to get to consumers quickly and make money quickly… but with this brand, I really want to support people and invest in pieces for a long time. [Cashmere] just felt like the right material that I could play with in a lot of different ways that was true to me, true to my style.”
