Little Women Cast Member Sentenced in DUI Crash That Killed Coast Guard Member Picking Up Wife for Her Birthday

Former Little Women: Atlanta cast member Melissa Hancock was sentenced Wednesday to 16 years in prison after she pleaded guilty earlier this year for her role in a fatal car crash, PEOPLE confirms.

Hancock, 26, admitted to four crimes in connection with the November wreck, court records show: aggravated involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence, driving the wrong way and failing to obey a highway sign.

On Nov. 5, 2017, about 2 a.m., Virginia State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash involving a wrong way driver in Virginia Beach, a police spokesperson previously told PEOPLE.

Hancock was driving westbound on I-264 in the eastbound lanes when her 2011 Cadillac struck Daniel Dill’s 2009 Mazda head on.

Her “blood alcohol content tested at 0.112 percent two hours after the crash,” authorities told told CBS News.

Dill, a longtime member of the U.S. Coast Guard, was transported to Virginia Beach General Hospital where he died the following day from severe blunt force trauma to his neck and torso, according to the Virginian-Pilot. He was 29.

Dill’s wife, Natalie, had been celebrating her birthday with friends, Dill’s sister, Kelly Vazquez, told PEOPLE at the time. She said Dill arranged to pick his wife up so that “she didn’t drink and drive.”

Dill was en route to get Natalie when Hancock hit his car.

“He was the type of man who would do anything and everything to help others,” Vazquez told PEOPLE last year of her brother. “Just recently he had returned from Puerto Rico where he was assisting with the hurricane relief efforts.”

At her sentencing on Wednesday, Hancock, who appeared on season 2 of Lifetime’s Little Women: Atlanta, described her remorse to Dill’s family and friends.

“Words cannot express my sympathy,” she said, according to the Virginian-Pilot. “I can’t believe what I have done. I could never mean to hurt anyone.” (Reached by PEOPLE, her attorney did not immediately provide a comment on her sentencing.)

Dill’s wife, his friend and five of his family members reportedly read victim impact statements about his character and the loss they suffered.

“He and Natalie made all the right decisions that night,” Dill’s friend Aaron Goh told the judge, the Virginian-Pilot reports. “She made all the wrong decisions. And yet they’re the ones suffering the consequences.”

Milly Looks to Boost West Coast Presence With Fred Segal Pop-up

CALIFORNIA VIBES: Milly cofounder and creative director Michelle Smith always felt her brand had a California aesthetic to it. A new pop-up at Fred Segal’s Sunset Boulevard flagship could help the company in boosting the line’s physical presence on the West Coast.
“I have a big presence on the East Coast and other regions like Chicago and then the South, and I can see from milly.com that I have a tremendous demand from the West Coast, but I don’t have a very strong physical presence here with my product,” Smith said of why the Fred Segal pop-up made sense. “It’s really exciting to have a physical presence here now and be able to really meet customers.”
Smith was in town to not only show her fall line to fashion editors but also prepare for Tuesday’s unveiling of a six-week pop-up at Fred Segal, which will also include Milly-dedicated windows for the next two weeks. The windows will feature some of the pieces from an exclusive capsule done in collaboration with Fred Segal, in addition to neon art curated especially for the pop-in, with a focus around themes of female empowerment and self-care.
The capsule for the store, part of the “Wildflower” spring collection,

Porsche Design Opening New Concept Store in South Coast Plaza

A new Porsche Design concept store — the company’s first in the U.S. — will open at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Nov. 15. The unit replaces a store that first opened in the Southern California mall in 1988.
The new store is nearly 1,600 square feet and located in the Carousel Court in the center of the plaza. It is a collaboration with Porsche Cars North America and will feature a rotating collection of Porsche cars that will serve as the centerpiece of the floor. There will also be a 16-x-9-foot video wall.
In addition, the store will offer men’s apparel, timepieces, electronics, luggage, writing tools, fragrances, smoking accessories, leather goods, eyewear and home accessories.
The only other store featuring this concept is in Milan and it opened in February.
“F.A. Porsche founded Porsche Design in 1972, with the design of a racing-inspired chronograph made for Porsche race car drivers,” said Dr. Jan Becker, chief executive officer of The Porsche Design Group. “Now, nearly 30 years after opening the original store, shifting gears and taking our retail concept to the next level with Porsche cars is a logical progression for us.”

Balmain Opens First West Coast Flagship, on L.A.’s Melrose Place

LOS ANGELES — Balmain today opens its first West Coast flagship, at 8421 Melrose Place in West Hollywood. The 2,400-square-foot, one-story boutique will be the first freestanding store to house the complete offering from the recently relaunched accessories line, as well as the brand’s men’s, women’s and kid’s clothing collections.
The Los Angeles unit will also feature design elements of the new store concept, which is still “a work in progress,” according to chief executive officer Massimo Piombini. The fully realized retail concept will make its debut next year at a location that has yet to be determined.
“For as long as I can remember, Los Angeles has always been this incredible source of dreams and inspiration. Pop culture actually made me fall in love with the city even before I had set foot in it,” said Olivier Rousteing, Balmain’s creative director. “Later, my California friends introduced me to the singular lifestyle, relaxed glamour and exhilarating openness, diversity and freedom that one finds there, and that intoxicating West Coast spirit has been reflected in my collections. So, in many ways coming to L.A. is almost as much as a homecoming as the opening of a new flagship.” Rousteing and Piombini will celebrate the

Defining West Coast Style Is Not So Simple

Ask most to define West Coast fashion and the usual adjectives emerge: casual, laid-back, beachwear and so on.
Maiden Noir, C2H4, Bristol and Matiere comprise a contingent of West Coasters looking to shake up what it means to hail from the region as they gear up to show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. They’re adding depth and complexity to what defines the West Coast, and it goes beyond generic labels such as streetwear or attire for adult skaters and surfers.
“I think there could be a book written about [West Coast fashion],” Bristol founder Luke Tadashi said. “L.A. is having this moment right now. People for so long weren’t willing to give L.A. a chance because it got this rap of being only celebrities, superficial, Hollywood, and there’s nothing else going on here. Then people had this awakening to ‘Oh, there are other things here.’ L.A. designers actually really have a strong point of view that maybe has been ignored. With the attention [on the city], it begets more attention and you get to see these designers with really cool perspectives.”
Tadashi, who started the line with childhood friend Tommy Nowels, hopes buyers and consumers see Bristol in the camp of having

Farfetch to Open West Coast Headquarters at The Bloc

NEW HOME: Farfetch is expected to move to the downtown Los Angeles mixed-use project The Bloc, where it intends to set up a West Coast headquarters in 2018.
The London-based firm inked a deal for 25,000 square feet of office space on the 30th floor of the property’s office tower, joining Nordstrom’s flash-deals site HauteLook as the two fashion companies in the building.
“Farfetch has called downtown L.A. home for its U.S. operations since we entered the market eight years ago, and we are proud to continue to invest in the community with our new office at The Bloc as we look to the future growth of our business,” said Farfetch North America president Jeffery Fowler. “At its core, Farfetch is a technology and innovation partner to the luxury fashion industry, and downtown L.A. has provided us with the right mix of talent, creativity and infrastructure to become one of the most dynamic companies in our industry and to continue to revolutionize the way that consumers shop for luxury fashion.”
The office lease comes on the heels of news earlier this month that Farfetch nabbed a $ 397 million investment from JD.com that’s expected to expand its footprint in China. Before that was Farfetch’s purchase

“I get to be sort of like an anchor in an exciting new development, which is so cool,” said Bird owner and founder Jen Mankins. “I never would have said yes to being in a ‘retail development’ because it sounds like you’re in a mall, but Runyon reached out to me and once I saw what it was all about, I was, like, ‘I’m in.’”
Bird joins other high-end brands such as Magasin, Janessa Leone, Freda Salvador, Aesop, Poketo, Linda Farrow and Velvet by Graham & Spencer.

Sweaty Betty’s Tamara Hill-Norton on West Coast Expansion, Initiatives

London-based premium activewear brand Sweaty Betty is growing its footprint in California. On a recent visit to Los Angeles to see her four stores here, founder and creative director Tamara Hill-Norton talked about the Palo Alto store opening this month and the one on Union Street in San Francisco opening in July.
“We are partnering in San Francisco with the Body Image Movement for a big event in May, and one in New York in October,” she said of the organization. Since founding the company in 1998, Hill-Norton has kept a female-led executive and design team and has grown the “sports luxe” brand from selling other lines into its own branded running, snow sports, yoga and swim gear as well as pieces beyond fitness.

Sweaty Betty’s store at the Lido in Newport Beach. 

While 35 percent of Sweaty Betty’s sales are in leggings, with an average price point of $ 135, Hill-Norton is looking to grow her dressier gym-to-dinner collections as well. Half of the pieces are sourced in Taiwan, where Hill-Norton said the best technical fabrics are, and half are from Europe, while most are made in Asia.

Dior Homme Opens New Store in South Coast Plaza

Dior Homme is maintaining its expansion, opening its seventh store in the U.S. at South Coast Plaza.
Owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and overseen by creative director Kris Van Assche, the luxury brand plans to unveil a clean, modern storefront in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Tuesday. The men’s store joins the Christian Dior boutique for women that opened its doors in 2010. In the past seven years that location has secured a spot as one of the brand’s top 10 doors selling women’s fashion, buoyed by business from regional customers as well as international traffic.
Showing growth in the last few years, Dior Homme also can take advantage of South Coast Plaza’s proximity to Hollywood. Joe Jonas, Mahershala Ali and Rami Malek were some of the celebrities who donned clothes by the brand during this year’s awards season.
“South Coast Plaza is an important market for us,” said Renaud de Lesquen, president of Christian Dior Couture and Parfums Christian Dior. “We have wanted to open a Dior Homme boutique in South Coast Plaza for a number of years, but we also wanted to make sure we had the ideal space and perfect location within the plaza in order to best showcase

South Coast Plaza Eyes Men’s Market With Debut Look Book

CUSTOM APPROACH: South Coast Plaza is showing some love to the male shopper.
The Orange County shopping center this evening will host a private event at the Berluti store to celebrate South Coast’s first men’s fall marketing book.
It’s a strategic move for the center as more chatter builds around men’s and the HENRYs consumer — high-earnings, not rich yet shoppers — or male Millennials.
“With the international growth in the men’s wear category, we wanted to shine the spotlight on our unparalleled collection of men’s boutiques, which represent some of the world’s most coveted names, from fashion-forward brands to esteemed sartorial leaders,” said South Coast executive director of marketing Debra Gunn Downing in a statement.

Wild Coast

Wild Coast


Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana are among the least-known places in South America: nine hundred miles of muddy coastline giving way to a forest so dense that even today there are virtually no roads through it; a string of rickety coastal towns situated between the mouths of the Orinoco and Amazon Rivers, where living is so difficult that as many Guianese live abroad as in their homelands; an interior of watery, green anarchy where border disputes are often based on ancient Elizabethan maps, where flora and fauna are still being discovered, where thousands of rivers remain mostly impassable. And under the lens of John Gimlette-brilliantly offbeat, irreverent, and canny-these three small countries are among the most wildly intriguing places on earth. On an expedition that will last three months, he takes us deep into a remarkable world of swamp and jungle, from the hideouts of runaway slaves to the vegetation-strangled remnants of penal colonies and forts, from “Little Paris” to a settlement built around a satellite launch pad. He recounts the complicated, often surprisingly bloody, history of the region-including the infamous 1978 cult suicide at Jonestown-and introduces us to its inhabitants: from the world’s largest ants to fluorescent purple frogs to head-crushing jaguars; from indigenous tribes who still live by sorcery to descendants of African slaves, Dutch conquerors, Hmong refugees, Irish adventurers, and Scottish outlaws; from high-tech pirates to hapless pioneers for whom this stunning, strangely beautiful world (“a sort of X-rated Garden of Eden”) has become home by choice or by force. In Wild Coast, John Gimlette guides us through a fabulously entertaining, eye-opening-and sometimes jaw-dropping-journey.

Jean Touitou on A.P.C.’s West Coast Growth

LOCATION, LOCATION: Ultracool French label A.P.C. shared images of its new Silver Lake store exclusively with WWD, while founder Jean Touitou gave his thoughts on the label’s future growth strategy.
The 1,793-square-foot Silver Lake store is the contemporary brand’s third on the West Coast and brings its total in the U.S. to seven.
“I believe three stores in Los Angeles is probably the maximum,” Touitou said of future growth in the area. “This brand cannot, by its own nature, be overdeveloped.”
A.P.C. next year will open a store in San Francisco’s Jackson Square neighborhood.
It’s all part of a strategy for the U.S. the company identified a few years ago.
“Three years ago, we thought America was the new Japan,” Touitou said. “We like to grow gradually, so we thought that California was a decent way to go.”
As for whether there’s a formula when it comes to site selection, it’s hardly that black-and-white and instead comes down to “beauty and proportions,” according to Touitou.
“There isn’t a particular concept in our choices,” he said. “We might as well open in Austin anywhere [if that were the case]. We generally follow our gut.”
As for the rest of the brand’s future U.S. plans, Touitou is more tight-lipped, citing no

Nell Wise Wechter’s Stories of the North Carolina Coast for Kids, Omnibus E-book


Available for the first time as an Omnibus Ebook, this collection brings together two of Nell Wise Wechter’s beloved stories of young people on the North Carolina Coast. These wonderful stories will entertain and enlighten readers of all ages. Included in this Omnibus Ebook:A longtime favorite of several generations of Tar Heels, Taffy of Torpedo Junction is the thrilling adventure story of thirteen-year-old Taffy Willis, who, with the help of her pony and dog, exposes a ring of Nazi spies operating from a secluded house on Hatteras Island, North Carolina, during World War II. For readers of all ages, the book brings to life the dramatic wartime events on the Outer Banks, where German U-boats turned an area around Cape Hatteras into ‘Torpedo Junction’ by sinking more than sixty American vessels in just a six-month period in 1942. Taffy has been enjoyed by young and old alike since it was first published in 1957.The legend of Teach’s Light has been handed down by the people of Stumpy Point village in coastal North Carolina for nearly three centuries. None can say when the mysterious light that hovers above Little Dismal Swamp will next appear, but it is said to guard a store of treasure buried long ago by Edward Teach (c. 1680-1718), better known as the infamous pirate Blackbeard. One summer evening, teenagers Corky Calhoun and Toby Davis row into the swamp, drawn by the mystery of Teach’s Light. But their adventure soon takes a curious turn. Thrown back in time by a sudden explosion, Corky and Toby find themselves floating safely above seventeenth-century England, as Blackbeard’s life unfolds below. They watch as the orphaned Edward Teach decides to stow away across the Atlantic, begins his career as the fearsome Blackbeard, stages terrible raids from the Caribbean to North Carolina aboard his ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, and, finally, is beheaded in a battle with the British Crown’s ships. An inventive blend of history and science fiction, Teach’s Light brings Bl

The Wonders Of The Amalfi Coast: And Capri, Ischia, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento

The Wonders Of The Amalfi Coast: And Capri, Ischia, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento


The Amalfi Coast is an unforgettable place for many travelers. A marvelous winding drive among the cliffs by the water''s edge gives way to spectacular and romantic views that linger in one''s memory. In this book, photographers have met the challenge of portraying the Amalfi Coast in ways that will surprise even the traveler with the keenest of visual recollections. Here they capture the coastline brilliantly through innovative perspectives while showing off its famous sites, remarkable for their vast natural, architectural, and artistic variety: Capri, Naples, Pompeii, and Sorrento. This is a place where the beauty of the landscape, molded by volcanoes, is wed to the glories of an illustrious past, and where the intense blue of the Tyrrhenian contrasts with the greenery and the bare rocks of the coast. Complemented by splendid photographs, the narrative in this book leads the reader on a wondrous itinerary through famous travel sites, where we happen upon hidden gems. Along with the great monuments, we discover, for example, the towns and villages of inland areas that, though off the beaten track, are rich in history, artistic treasures, stunning natural scenery, and the flavors and colors of ancient popular traditions. From coastlines to volcanoes, Roman ruins to cathedrals, and museums to festivals, these images form a stunning portrait of the Amalfi Coast-one that all who know this region will treasure.

“Reunion,” South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa

Three chums meet up in a motel room after their 25th high school reunion. It’s the same room they had 25 years ago, after graduation. There’s ritual, there’s anticipation, and there’s the chance to compare how much each has moved on. Two have left town. One stayed put. One has twin sons and two-week-old daughter. One is divorced, with a son. And one, unmarried, still lives in his parents’ house. Is this an occasion to catch up, reminisce, and relive glory days? Not even remotely. Gregory S. Moss’ “Reunion,” directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt for South Coast Repertory, is a corker of a story that examines, at times in excruciating detail, the complex relationships of boys who became men who, for one night, became boys again.

Set in a Boston suburb motel room, the production brims with id and angst, with traces of testosterone thrown in for good measure. To describe it, it’s funny. The three friends party like it’s 1989. They trash a motel room like rock royalty. And they talk smack about each other and about high school girls. Their zingers become more lethal. To describe it, though, it’s powerful and, at times, scary. Campbell-Holt turns Moss’ story into a true confessions catharsis that won’t provide much relief for Peter (Kevin Berntson), Max (Michael Gladis), and Mitch (Tim Cummings), but will certainly give us a lot to think about.

The story begins purposefully awkward. It takes awhile for the three to open up. It’s been a quarter century, after all. Of course, alcohol, pot, and boom box rock-and-roll provide the social lubricants, just as it did in high school. Then it becomes surreal.

Once things get rolling (rocking too, for that matter), the revelations are startling, to put it mildly. So is the acting. The three actors managed to convincingly switch back and forth at will between teenagers and middle-aged adults, with all the psychoses and hang ups of both age groups.

At first Berntson’s Peter is gung ho and eager, poised if not gawky. He’s the only one of the three who tried to stay in contact. By the end you understand why. You feel he set up the reunion to show his two friends how much he’s matured since high school. Of course, when all three revert to form, he becomes the toy nerd for the other two (stuffed in a mattress; taped to a door). Even that doesn’t get him to leave. No, that’s because of some intelligence he gleans, intelligence that shows that things haven’t changed much since high school.

Gladis’ Max and Cummings’ Mitch sit on a keg of dynamite. It’s not because of what Max had done to his infant son or because Mitch never moved on emotionally after high school. When you learn their secret, you understand how things not addressed at the time or even later, in therapy, continue to simmer and impact subsequent events. Untreated, as happens here, they boil over.

Performances are 7:45pm, Tuesday through Saturday, 2pm, Saturday and Sunday. The show runs until March 30. Tickets are $ 22 – $ 62. The Theatre is located at 655 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. For more information call (714) 708-5555 or visit www.scr.org.
