Do you have a window cracked? A glass of iced water filled to the brim? A personal fan at your disposal? Because I suggest taking all three precautions before watching the first teaser for Don’t Worry Darling.
Director Olivia Wilde finally shared a glimpse at her forthcoming psychological thriller on social media, and though the clip merely lasts 11 seconds, it provided the jolt of energy and excitement I so desperately needed on a Monday afternoon.
The teaser opens with Florence Pugh’s Alice ominously gazing into the distance while lounging poolside, and moments later – bam! – the intensity kicks up several notches as we witness Alice and Harry Styles’s Jack getting hot and heavy.
We may have only gotten a split-second peek at their vigorous makeout session, but I’m already prepared to award it a top 10 spot on our list of the best movie kisses in history. I mean, the groping! The fervor! It’s all too much.
Besides showing Styles and Pugh’s steamy smooch, the clip also reveals an equally as important detail: the release date. Don’t Worry Darling will hit theaters on Sept. 23, 2022, which, yes, unfortunately means we must wait an entire year to see the extended version of that kiss. Set in the 1950s, the film centers on an unhappy housewife living in a “utopian experimental community” with her husband, who’s hiding a big secret.
The star-studded cast also includes Gemma Chan, Chris Pine, KiKi Layne, Nick Kroll, and Wilde in a supporting role. Here’s to hoping Wilde gives us a heads-up before dropping the full trailer, because this lightning-fast teaser alone was enough to entirely derail my productivity for the day.
There’s an Important Reason Kamala Harris Wore This Pyer Moss Coat to the COVID-19 Memorial
On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration, Biden and incoming vice president Kamala Harris attended a ceremony to honor COVID-19 victims. They were joined by their spouses at the Lincoln Memorial, where 400 lights were illuminated around the reflecting pool to represent the 400,000 Americans who have died from the virus. As Kamala delivered a speech paying tribute to the lives lost and calling for the nation to begin healing together, she wore a Pyer Moss coat that also held significance.
When hospitals were experiencing a dire shortage of PPE at the beginning of the pandemic, Kerby Jean-Raymond, the Haitian-American designer and founder behind fashion label Pyer Moss, quickly converted his New York office into a donation center and donated $5,000 to purchase masks and gloves. The designer also set aside $50,000 for minority and women-owned small creative businesses that were distressed by COVID-19.
The vice president-elect’s purposeful decision to wear a coat by a designer who stepped up to contribute to COVID-19 relief certainly bears a special meaning. As New York Times chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman put it, “It’s not about fashion. It’s about values.” Kamala paired the camel coat with a simple black sweater dress and leather boots.
Jill Biden similarly set the tone with her ensemble, a purple “Unity” dress and wrap coat combo with a matching mask made from leftover material, all by Jonathan Cohen, an independent New York designer. The future first lady’s outfit not only represented unity in the name of her pieces, but also in the color purple’s significance in politics. Get a closer look at Kamala and Jill’s meaningful choices ahead.
