Celebrity Stylist Cristina Ehrlich Teams With Cheyann Benedict on Red-Carpet T-shirt Line

Hollywood stylist Cristina Ehrlich, who works with Laura Dern, Natasha Lyonne, Mandy Moore and Uzo Aduba, among others, and fashion veteran Cheyann Benedict are teaming up on a unisex “red-carpet T-shirt” collection called Plays Well With Others, featuring shoulder-pad muscle Ts, “wife-hugger” tanks, oversize crops and other high-fashion silhouettes designed to pair with designer looks.
New York-based Ehrlich had been searching for T-shirts polished enough for her clients to wear at events and award shows, and mentioned it to Benedict when the two reconnected at a dinner party last year. She picked the perfect person to bug about it; Benedict cofounded the colorful California C&C T-shirt line in the early Aughts, which sold to Liz Claiborne in 2005, but felt the laid-back vibe had dumbed down the style too much.
“You walk around nowadays and everyone is wearing T-shirts, but it’s gotten really sloppy. That casual California look has taken over,” said Benedict, who is based in Los Angeles where she used to have her own namesake lifestyle brand. “There are so many reasons I’m loving partnering with Cristina — her eye is sophisticated, timeless and always chic.”
Ehrlich joins the growing ranks of celebrity stylists entering the fashion business with their own

Since then, Morrone says, they’ve remained close friends, and the partnership sprung from their keeping in touch.
“This being my first collaboration, I wanted to do something that felt organic and close

About Time: ‘NBA 2K20’ Finally Adds All 12 WNBA Teams To The Game

'NBA 2K20' Announces All 12 WNBA Teams Will Be In The Game

Source: 2K / NBA 2K20

NBA Live took the big step of integrating the WNBA and its superstars into the game two years ago. Many began to wonder if the NBA 2K franchise would eventually follow suit. That question has been answered today (August 8), 2K revealed that all 12 WNBA teams and its superstars will be in the NBA 2K20.

With NBA Live 20 pushed all the way back, NBA 2K20 picked up the ball dropped by EA. In the developer video introducing the WNBA to 2K, we see Candace Parker, and Breanna Stewart getting their motion capture on. In the 1:47 clip we get to see the ladies in action and the gameplay looks very accurate. The players we see in the video do look visually accurate, which is a significant improvement from the generic scans NBA Live used of the WNBA players.

Speaking on her addition to the top-selling video game Candace Parker added:

“Growing up, I always remembered watching male athletes on TV and playing as them in video games. Now, to have the WNBA be in the position we are and to have women featured prominently in NBA 2K20, we are allowing young girls and boys to have female athletes as role models. The 2K team has done an amazing job of making sure to not just put women into the game playing men’s basketball, but I’ve seen first-hand the hard work they’re doing to make this as real and authentic as possible to women’s basketball. I’m proud to be a part of this team paving the way for the future.”

Jeff Thomas, SVP of Development, Visual Concepts stated:

“For years, fans have requested the ability to play as some of their favorite WNBA stars. We’ve been working with the WNBA and their top players to modify our basketball simulation engine to replicate the WNBA on-court experience. We’re excited to roll out this new feature in NBA 2K20 because we know how important the WNBA is to the world of basketball.”

WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert noted:

“We are excited to have WNBA players as part of this top-selling video game,  helping to bring more exposure to these elite players, expanding our fan base and providing an immersive gaming experience featuring women role model athletes.”

Better late than never right? NBA 2K is one of the most played games on consoles right now by both sexes. It was always weird that game lacked the ability for female gamers to create female avatars. The NBA 2K League’s first female player had to ball with a male avatar during the season. Hopefully now with the inclusion of the WNBA into the game that will change. Kudos to folks at 2K for the significant addition.

All game modes featuring the WNBA will be available to play when NBA 2K20 drops worldwide September 6, 2019. You watch the introductory trailer below.

The free skin will be available to Mortal Kombat 11 owners on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch beginning August 22.

He linked up with the Mortal Kombat 11 team for an original track used in the games first gameplay reveal trailer unveiled back in January.

Vegas’ free skin is one of the many updates that have arrived since the game’s release. MK11’s “Kombat League” kicked off June 18 allowing players to compete with each other for seasonal in-game rewards. Players who purchased the game’s first Kombat Pack also gained early access to Shang Tsung who is now available to everyone. Mortal Kombat 3 vets Nightwolf and Sindel plus iconic comic book character Spawn are also on the way. Two other yet to be revealed characters will be announced at a later date.

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon gave fans a glimpse of Nightwolf’s MK11 design. IGN caught up with Spawn creator Todd McFarlane at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the anti-hero joining the fighting game franchise.

Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Teams Up With White Castle For Its Vegan Slider

RZA: Live From The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin

For nearly 100 years, White Castle has been one of those fast food chains that people either love, hate, or tolerate when it’s time to feed the munchies. Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA has teamed up with White Castle to promote its veggie burger slider in a most unique way, continuing a long-running partnership of sorts between the brands.

Veg News reports:

White Castle shared a promotional video on Instagram, wherein Wu-Tang member and longtime vegan RZA directed followers to a hotline set up to promote the Impossible Slider. “Peace. My name is RZA9000, formerly known as the RZA. I have uploaded my consciousness into a supreme data system and now I possess the knowledge infinite,” the disembodied voice of RZA says in the video.

“Together with the Wu-Tang Clan, we will slide through space, seek wisdom, and expand the parameters of the mind. If you are an Earthling and you need answers, call 1-833-4-SLIDER.” The phone number connects to a recorded message, wherein RZA urges callers to leave a “question about existence” that may be used as part of the campaign, ending the recording with a cryptic statement. “All will be revealed. Wu-Tang in space, eating vegan Impossible Sliders—October 1.”

Back in April, Ghostface Killa and Cappadonna rocked a set at a Brooklyn White Castle to promote the launch of the Impossible Slider, and a look on some Wu-Tang members’ social media pages show and prove that the might WTC is down with the mighty WC.

According to most accounts, the Impossible Slider is selling well and will eventually be made available via all its chains nationwide.
