Penn Badgley has found his Serena van der Woodsen, guys. The Gossip Girl star, musician and ex of Blake Lively, married Domino Kirke in NYC yesterday. Kirke, also a musician, is the sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke and Mozart in the Jungle actress Lola Kirke.
You still with me? Good. Despite all the Hollywood connections, the couple's wedding was super low key. According to People Magazine, they married in a chill courthouse ceremony with a few of their closet friends and family. Domino posted this adorbs photo.
And Lola this family snap.
When someone gets married in a courthouse, it's really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer. Here, I try a look simply called "Pants," as Cassius goes for "That Dude from #incubus" and Jemima experiments with "Off to Therapy!" Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you.
Also, we want this cake.

The department store embraces the indie boutique feel.
If you’re already a fan of Nordstrom’s SPACE concept – an in-store boutique that stocks up-and-coming designers (like Molly Goddard, Undercover and Mira Mikati) – then you’ll like the sound of the retailer’s latest project. The Lab is a shop-in-shop dedicated to introducing people to even more emerging names in fashion. For spring, five designers were chosen: Vejas (the award-winning label run by 20-year-old Toronto wunderkind Vejas Kruszewski), experimental New York label Eckhaus Latta, Kanye-approved brand A.W.A.K.E. and alt-cool newcomers Dilara Findikoglu and Eric Schlösberg. Come fall, a handful of new names will be brought on board. Here’s to the next wave. (From $235, at Nordstrom CF Toronto Eaton Centre, Nordstrom Vancouver Pacific Centre and nordstrom.com/space)
Here's a comforting thought: There's very little chance you will do anything as high key cringeworthy as what Warren Beatty did last night at the Oscars.
Unless you were planning on announcing the wrong winner for Best Picture, too?
The moment—immediately pounced upon as #OscarGate—still seems a bit surreal. At the time, while still on stage, Warren explained that he opened up the envelope to find a card that read "Emma Stone, Lalaland". Beatty, clearly feeling something was wrong, can be seen checking in the envelope for another card, before consulting co-presenter Faye Dunaway, who just went for it and announced: "Lala Land!".
Cue everyone in that case rushing the stage, celebrating, and then a man coming up to the microphone saying: "Moonlight has won best picture. This is not a joke."
In the hours that followed, we're getting further details on how something like that happened. According to PWC, the accounting firm that handles the maintenance of the secrecy of the winners, released a statement that basically said: We messed up, he was given the wrong envelope, and we're launching an investigation to see how that happened.
And while, yes, thinking you won best picture and then having it taken from you literally while you're accepting the award sucks, LaLaland did have an otherwise succesful night: Emma Stone won best actress and Damien Chazell became the youngest best director winner at 32.
It only took three years, but finally we're getting some intel on how actor / mere mortal George Clooney met human rights lawyer / bridal pantsuit wearer Amal Alamuddin.
Since the announcement of their impending twins (congrats again guys!) the informational floodgates on the couple have opened, which is why we're getting this gem of a "meet cute" story straight from the lips of George himself.
As told to David Letterman, the two met when Amal visited Lake Como as a friend of a friend. George "called and wrote" for months before Amal would go out with him, which you know, seems about right.
