The Dune: Part Two press tour has sadly come to an end — which is literally the only negative to come from the movie’s US release on March 1st. The film has garnered rave reviews for immersive cinematography, career-defining acting performances, and ushering in a new era for science fiction cinema and action movies across genres.

Meet the Internet’s 2024 Award Season Boyfriends

A field guide to internet boyfriends

What is a white boy of the month? The term originated on the social media app formerly known as Twitter, as most ubiquitous pillars of stan culture do. The Twitter white boy of the month began as a joke poking fun at the cyclical nature of thirst on the internet. Every month, everyone’s feeds erupted with photos and fancams of a new heartthrob — usually a young, white actor or musician with heartthrob hair — only to be replaced weeks later by the latest flavor of the month.

Then came the ranking system. Stan communities pitted their white boys against each other, ranking them according to whether they were hot or not. But soon, as the term entered the mainstream, the internet seemed to come to a consensus: these are all our parasocial boyfriends. We should all just get along.

Wait … Did Timothee Chalamet and Kylie Jenner Break Up?

Timmy, aka, Prince Paul Atreides, was allegedly seen acting very single sans King Kylie

Did Timothee Dump Kylie?

I’ll admit it here: I didn’t read Dune. But I’ll also swear on my life that I’ve had Frank Herbert’s massive odyssey of a novel on my TBR long before the new adaptation, Dune: Part One(let alone Dune: Part Two), was set in motion by Denis Villeneuve. I'm not new to this, but I'm also not true to this.

It’s my father’s favorite book, so I grew up half-grateful, half-scornful he didn’t name me Chani. Now that Zendaya is playing that role, I’m still ambivalent about the choice.

Which is to say, all these long years, I still haven’t even turned to the first page. Therefore, I don’t know how it ends — specifically if Prince Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) gets the girl in the end. I guess I’ll find out on March 1st, Dune: Part Two’s long-awaited release date (shoutout to the SAG strike). But until then, I have even hotter Dune tea to contemplate: Did Timothee dump Kylie Jenner?

I Can't Wait to Go to the Movies in 2024

Zendaya Challengers Release Date

I remember exactly where I was when I first watched it: the trailer for Challengers starring Zendaya, Mike Faist, and Josh O'Connor. That was my Super Bowl. It had everything: besties, bisexuality, and Zendaya in that Blonde bob.

I had waited months to finally get a glimpse of Zendaya's collaboration with Luca Guadagnino. Ever since the film had been announced, we'd savored clips of Zendaya practicing her tennis game, Tomdaya strolling around Boston on location, and even her judgemental looks (and flawless courtside fashion) at Wimbledon and the US Open.

Run to your local magazine store! Timothee Chalamet just became the first man to appear solo on a print cover for British Vogue.

Inspired by his latest movie Bones & All, this British Vogue cover will no doubt be an instant classic. I’m calling it now. A cover for the ages. History-making, yes. But it’s already making its way around Instagram and, surely, Pinterest boards — as it will for years to come.

2020 was not the best year for fashion — no prizes for guessing why.

Sweatpants and loungewear triumphed — in our more optimistic moments, activewear did too — but high fashion suffered. With no red carpet events, Zoom press tours, and online award shows, tie-dye hoodies were some of the most exciting sartorial choices of the year.
