WHAT A WEEK.  And I just saw the news coming out of Germany — if any of you are in Munich at the moment, I very much hope you and yours are safe.

Everyone, please feel free to pour yourself an entire bottle of wine and distract yourself with the following:

– Liz Meriweather is covering the RNC for Vulture and you guys. Her dispatches are PAINFULLY BRILLIANT. Read all of them, but for sure please read Last Weekend’s Hottest Romance Was the Doomed Coupling of T&P in the Trump-Pence Logo, and You Wouldn’t Understand Melania Trump’s My Little Pony Glimmer Truths.

– At Lainey: Kiki Dunst is directing an adaptation of The Bell Jar.

– Via Deadline, Tara Lipinski is producing a drama for Hulu about competitive figure skaters. I AM IN.

– EXCELLENT. At Revelist: Every ‘Degrassi’ character ever, ranked.

Michelle Obama’s Carpool Karaoke is great. (Vanity Fair)

– You know who else is great? John Cho, in this Vulture interview.

– Via The Guardian, FKA Twigs held a free dance workshop in Baltimore. This whole story is very heartwarming.

Roxane Gay and poet Yona Harvey are writing a comic for Marvel (with Ta-Nehisi Coates, who writes Black Panther) and it sounds awesome. (New York Times)

– At the BBC: WW2 silk escape map dress sold in Harrogate. !!!!

– At Celebitchy, they’re wondering whether or not Hiddleswift will last until the Emmys.

– Speaking of celeb break-ups, RIP (officially, finally) Pacey and Diane. (Vanity Fair)

– At Elle: I Got a Haircut in Every Foreign City I Visited on Vacation. This is very touching and good. To wit: “Even today, when political and cultural differences can once again seem unbridgeably wide, reflecting back on these salons—where fans gently wafted hairspray-scented air, summer light filtered in hazily from the streets, and I was deeply reassured to find that most people are intelligent and kind, when you get to know them a little bit—I feel my heart beat more slowly and my fears of unknown others fade.”

– Over at Pajiba: A Reminder to Anyone Who Thinks Leslie Jones Ruined ‘Ghostbusters’: The Original Ghostbusters Hate You

– At The Ringer: A Close Reading of Kim Kardashian West’s Latest Film: Kanye and Taylor’s Phone Call

– I loved this Top Shelf at Into The Gloss: Betty Halbreich, Personal Shopper, Bergdorf Goodman

– At The New Potato, Isaac Mizrahi is a delight.

– At Vogue: Idris Elba, Day and Night! The Actor on His Off-Duty and Red Carpet Style

- Via Bustle, MY HERO:  An 86 year old woman thwarted a would-be robber using bacon as a weapon.
