We’ve been talking a lot about It Girls this summer. There are Fashion It Girls like Bella Hadid and Zendaya. There are eternal empresses like Chloe Sevigny. And with the tornado-like trend-cycle permeating style and pop culture, cultural ephemera breeds icons like Sofia Richie for the quiet luxury crowd.

And this summer, you simply can not talk about It Girls without talking about Lily-Rose Depp.

At the Bulgari jewelry show in Venice, Italy on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, nobody was looking at the accessories. After all, what good are jewels when the girls are the girling?

Dune: Part Two Trailer is here — Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Florence Pugh, and Austin Butler’s Bald Head

I always say it reminds me of Hamlet — a young man thrust into a role he doesn’t want, trying to avenge his father. For a science fiction action feature, it was surprisingly calm, quiet, and contemplative. Yes, there were moments of big-budget action. But Dune: Part 1 was only setting the scene for the climax to come in November 2023.

One of the most significant pop culture phenomena for youth in the 2000s was Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight. The books, the five-part movie series, the years of Team Jacob and Team Edward merchandise — you couldn’t escape them. The series spawned a collection of spin-offs, a decade of supernatural romance content (Vampire-mania just about rivaled Beatles-mania at some point), and rocketed Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to superstardom.
