NYPD Officer Sues Over ‘Deplorable’ Conditions for Pumping Breast Milk: ‘It’s Just Inexcusable’

Simone Teagle, a New York City Police Department officer, has filed a lawsuit against N.Y.C., mayor Bill de Blasio and others, alleging that she faced poor treatment for pumping breast milk at work.

According to her personal injury claim, Teagle is suing for $ 5 million on account of pain and suffering, mental anguish and punitive damages. The New York Post was the first to report the news.

In the claim, Teagle, who used to work at the 113th Precinct, alleges that the respondents have “failed and refused to provide her and other similarly situated female employees who are nursing mothers with a proper location to express milk.”

A representative of the NYPD told PEOPLE, “The NYPD is in full compliance with the law.” The New York City Law Department declined PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Teagle told PEOPLE that, starting in February 2018, she had to pump milk in the bathroom, the locker room or her car for her son, who is now 11 months old.

RELATED: Brie Bella Opens Up About Her Struggle with Breastfeeding: ‘Mom Guilt’s the Worst Feeling’

In the locker room, she said, “There’s no window. There’s no air ventilation. There’s mold on the walls. There’s dirt on the floor. … It’s just a deplorable place. If I didn’t pump there, I would pump sometimes inside of the bathroom, which is difficult because you often hear women using the bathroom while you’re pumping, which is disgusting.”

She continued, “Sometimes, if I didn’t want to deal with those conditions, I pumped in my car. … Then I would take my milk and put it into an insulated lunchbox and keep my milk there until I could get home to refrigerate it.”

Teagle said that her supervisors’ treatment of her was similarly unnerving. She recalled, “I asked supervisors for a break. They’d give me a hard time often roll their eyes at me. They were very annoyed with me taking a break and how many times a day I needed to take a break to express milk.”

In August, the claim says that Teagle was asked to list her breaks for breast pumping in an Interrupted Patrol Log, which several other people can access.

“I started to just skip breaks,” she said. “It caused a medical condition for me with swelling in the breasts and the breasts being overfilled because it was just easier to avoid conflict by not even asking for a break.”

Teagle’s mastitis, according to Mayo Clinic, “is an inflammation of breast tissue that sometimes involves an infection. The inflammation results in breast pain, swelling, warmth and redness. You might also have fever and chills.”

Teagle was transferred to another command in September. Eric Sanders, Teagle’s lawyer, told PEOPLE that said she is still facing issues there.

“She doesn’t have a facility, and she basically will have to either pump in the bathroom … or she’ll have to do it in her private vehicle,” Sanders explained. “The police department is a multi-billion dollar agency. It’s just inexcusable that she would have to do that.”

RELATED: Gisele Bündchen Says She Used Her Breast Milk As a Cure-All When Her Kids Were Little

Sanders said of police officers, “They have the same rights to nurse. They have the same rights to take care of their family. They have the same constitutional rights as anyone else.”

Teagle hopes that her lawsuit helps other women in her position. She said, “I’m hoping that women who are pregnant now, women who are going to have babies in the future … that they’ll have a facility that’s suitable for them, and they won’t feel discouraged or embarrassed about pumping milk or asking to pump milk.”

LeBron James, Lakers, Play Eminem on ‘White Boy’ Wednesdays: ‘It’s Like Taco Tuesday!’

Numerous athletes have turned to rapper Eminem for their pregame routines — like Naomi Osaka, who recently defeated Serena Williams at the U.S. Open Women’s Finals — and the same goes for superfan LeBron James.

James has not hidden his love of Eminem’s new record, Kamikaze, and has routinely shared videos of himself rapping to songs from the album on his Instagram Story. So when the Los Angeles Lakers took to their practice facility in El Segundo on Wednesday, ahead of the start of the NBA’s regular season on October 16, James took over the team’s music playlist to get his fill of the “Killshot” rapper (who is in the midst of a feud with Machine Gun Kelly).

“Today’s white boys Wednesdays,” James told reporters. “Seriously. You’re laughing, but today’s white boys Wednesdays, so only white boy music day, which I enjoy.”

But the music selection wasn’t just limited to Eminem, James said.

“I love Eminem, but it wasn’t just Eminem. We had a lot of good music today,” he said, before mentioning Luke Walton and Mark Madsen, two white members on the team’s staff. “ Luke and Mad Max, all those guys. It was a good day!”

After reporters laughed at the concept of the team dedicating a day to white musicians, James played it down as just another typical day.

“It’s a universal thing, right?” he asked reporters, according to USA Today. “It’s just like taco Tuesdays. It’s a thing. You guys look at me crazy when I said it, like, ‘Oh, , white boys Wednesdays.’ ”

The music-themed practice session seems to be the team’s attempt to create chemistry with each other, just three months after James, a former Cleveland Cavaliers player, joined the team, along with a slew of other new members.

“We had fun yesterday, too,’’ James said. “That’s what work’s all about. If you’re not having fun doing what you do, then you got the wrong profession.’’

James and the new-look Lakers are hoping to put up a fight against the Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, the team that has repeatedly triumphed over the Cavaliers during the four consecutive times that met in the NBA Finals (the Cavs won a single time in 2016).

RELATEDLeBron James on His Enduring Relationship with His Wife: ‘She Was There with Me’ Before Anything

But James has been working to temper expectations, as many players on the team are young and haven’t even reached the NBA Playoffs, let alone the championship round. This has led 33-year-old James to take on a mentor role with his new Laker teammates.

“I got to bring in the approach I get from home,” James said on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

“When you have three kids, you have to be patient. I’m not calling these guys kids; they’re young men here, and some of these men have families as well. But you learn that you have to be patient and you have to gauge everyone individually very different to get the most out of them.”

James will make his debut with the Lakers against the Portland Trailblazers on October 18.

It’s Finally Fall! Here’s Everything to Know About the Fall Equinox

Despite the fact that the pumpkin spice latte debuted this year in August, fall actually doesn’t begin until Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018. This day not only marks the unofficial start of sweater weather, it it also has a scientific significance: the autumnal equinox.

The equinox isn’t just a day, it’s a minute.

According to The Weather Channel, the autumnal equinox happens at 9:54 p.m. EDT, marking the official end of summer and the beginning of fall. During that minute, the sun crosses the Earth’s equator from the Northern Hemisphere into the Southern Hemisphere and day and night last the exact same amount of time — 12 hours — everywhere across the world.

So why does this happen? Throughout the year, the earth tilts on its axis at a diagonal away from or toward the sun, causing the change in seasons. During the equinox, it becomes momentarily perfectly perpendicular, meaning the sun’s rays pass directly over the equator. Following that minute, the Northern hemisphere begins to tilt away from the sun leading to shorter days and cooler temperatures. It also causes a shift in the jet stream, which affects weather patterns.

RELATED: Joanna Gaines Reveals a Rare Behind-the-Scenes Look at Magnolia Market’s Fall Decor

Equinoxes happen twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, while the solstices occur once in the summer and once in the winter. During an equinox, the sun is at the closest distance to the equator, while during a solstice it is the furthest distance away.

Cardi B Mourns Mac Miller’s Death Shortly Before Fight with Nicki Minaj: ‘It’s Very Sad’

Shortly before attacking Nicki Minaj at a party on Friday night, Cardi B shared a heartfelt message about Mac Miller, who was pronounced dead from an apparent overdose hours earlier.

It’s very sad,” the “I Like It” rapper, 25, told Billboard while attending the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party during New York Fashion Week, where she would later get into a physical altercation with Minaj.

She went on to share that she hoped that at the end of his life, Miller, 26, wasn’t struggling with “the pressure that fame brings you.”

“I feel like people don’t know that fame brings you a lot of sadness, a lot of pressure,” she remarked. “I just hope that now he’s in a better place.”

RELATED: Ariana Grande’s Manager Remembers Mac Miller’s ‘Kind Heart’: ‘You Will Be Missed’

When asked whether she had a message for the late rapper’s family, Cardi replied, “Stay strong, look in the sky, look for messages — he will be sending some.”

“They always send messages in the weirdest way. Maybe in a dream, maybe something. You’ll find it,” she added.

Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was pronounced dead at 11:51 a.m. at his Studio City, California, home on Friday, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE.

A cause of death is yet to be determined, but a source told PEOPLE that Miller had gone into cardiac arrest after appearing to suffer a drug overdose.

RELATED: Mac Miller Candidly Discussed His Drug Use and Getting Sober: ‘Overdosing Is Just Not Cool’

In an interview with the rapper that was released just one day before his death, Miller told Vulture that he did experience “pressure” growing up in the public eye, especially as he’s been very open about his struggles with drugs and sobriety.

“A lot of times in my life I’ve put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And that creates pressure,” he explained.

“It’s annoying to be out and have someone come up to me and think they know. They’re like, ‘Yo, man, are you okay?’ I’m like ‘Yeah, I’m f— at the grocery store.’ You know?,” he added. “It’s the job. This is what I signed up for.”

RELATED VIDEO: LISTEN: Mac Miller Was Working on Music Hours Before His Death

Following his Macadelic tour in 2012 and the release of his first studio album Blue Slide Park, Miller admitted he turned to drugs to cope with stress.

“I love lean; it’s great… I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy,” Miller told Complex in 2013. “I was so f—ed up all the time it was bad. My friends couldn’t even look at me the same. I was lost.”

While Miller attempted to turn his life around within the past couple of years, he was arrested for DUI in May, shortly after news broke that Miller and Ariana Grande had split.

Last month he told Rolling Stone he doesn’t classify himself as a drug addict. “If a bunch of people think I am a huge drug addict, Okay. Cool,” he said. “What can I really do? Go talk to all those people and be like, ‘Naw man, it’s really not that simple?’ Have I done drugs? Yeah. But am I a drug addict? No.”

This One ‘Beautiful’ Item Will Make Your Bathroom Joanna Gaines-Approved — And It’s Under $4

Fall is just around the corner and you know what that means — a new Joanna Gaines-designed home collection arriving at Target!
Hearth & Hand with Magnolia, the Fixer Upper star’s line of farmhouse modern-inspired decor, is introducing a slew of new pieces for its autumn refresh, but one affordable find in particular tops the HGTV alum’s list.
“I love storing everyday items like cotton balls in these amber glass containers,” she explains in a decorating tips video, above. “They have a warm feel that embodies the fall season.”

The mom of five, 40 — she and husband Chip, 43, welcomed a baby boy in June — isn’t thinking only of aesthetics, however. With her party of 7 living under one roof in the family’s Waco farmhouse, she also has to make sure every piece does its job.

Showing off a bathroom decorated with her latest designs, Joanna notes, “The key to making this space both functional and beautiful is to contain things in a creative way.” Hearth & Hand already includes home organization aplenty, like sophisticated fabric-covered storage boxes and hanging file folders in Jo’s signature hues (spot the “weekend blue?”). But the glass vessels, which come in three sizes and range from $ 3.99 to $ 9.99, are a welcome addition for the first-ever fall lineup (the brand launched last November).

Jo offers a few more tips for a seasonal refresh, including not going overboard with the pumpkins and scarecrows: “Start with subtle updates to your exterior,” she suggests, “like a wreath, doormat and a galvanized bin to catch footwear before going into the house.”

And when the time arrives for holiday guests, be sure to pamper them a little. “I like to have a guest basket prepped for when family and friends visit,” says the consummate hostess. (She once had nine kids staying in her house at once!) “Hand towels, candles and bath salts are some of my favorites.”

Man Kills Son, 6, Wife and Ex in Murder-Suicide: ‘I Had a Perfect Life, and Now It’s All Screwed Up’

On Monday night, a 39-year-old New York City man committed suicide shortly after fatally shooting his wife, ex-wife and 6-year-old son, and NYPD sources confirm to PEOPLE a bitter custody battle may have been behind the violence.

At about 9 p.m., police were summoned to the Astoria, Queens, apartment of James Shields after neighbors heard several gunshots.

Inside the apartment, police found Shields dead from a pair of self-inflicted injuries: NYPD sources say he cut his own throat and shot himself.

Deeper into the apartment, they found the bodies of his wife, 38-year-old Saskia Shields, his ex-wife, 47-year-old Linda Olthof, and their son, James Jr.

A note was found at the scene, according to sources.

The sources confirm the note read, “I had a perfect life, and now it’s all screwed up.”

Olthof and James Jr. were visiting Shields from the Netherlands, where they were living, the sources say.

Shields had set up a GoFundMe page in his efforts to spend time with his son, but the page has since been taken down.

“My beautiful son is 6 years old and my ex wife lives in the Netherlands. We were married and because she couldn’t find work as an artist ran back home to Holland after she was pregnant with my son devastating me,” the page read.

Meghan and Harry’s Royal Wedding Reception Gets the SNL Treatment — and It’s Hilarious

The evening reception of the royal wedding at the Frogmore House was limited to 200 close friends and family of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but leave it to Saturday Night Live to give their hysterical imagining of the exclusive celebration.

Mikey Day’s Harry led his wedding videographer around the party to mingle with guests, including familiar faces like Kate Middleton, played by Cecily Strong. Though she seems to have overindulged in the festivities, she reveals that after giving birth to three kids, she’s really feeling that one glass of champagne.

Harry visits his grandmother Queen Elizabeth (as played by Kate McKinnon) as her eyes widen over a conversation with one of Meghan’s relatives (Kenan Thompson), who casually rests his arm around her shoulders as he encourages her to watch The Crown.

“This gentleman has also said that I must visit Philadelphia,” she stated, uncomfortably eyeing the camera.

It’s the event of the decade! Be sure to keep up with all of PEOPLE’s royal wedding coverage and don’t forget to check out everything you need to know about Meghan Markle’s perfect style.

SNL didn’t wonder how Prince William‘s best man speech went, but Alex Moffat reprised his role as the groom’s older brother, complete with his newborn Prince Louis resting on his chest.

“So sorry to hear that your hair could not make it tonight,” Day’s character jabbed in a moment of sibling rivalry, before pressuring Moffat’s William to bust a move on the dance floor. He seemed to enjoy twerking until he realized that the Queen was watching.

SNL‘s Harry then ventured into the overflow room, where he greeted a Deal or No Deal briefcase model and his “Auntie Creepy,” played by Tina Fey.

Additional hilarious highlights? Aidy Bryant channeling wedding guest Elton John, Pete Davidson taking on Russell Brand and Leslie Jones explaining how she managed to score an invite to the bash.

“I started tweeting about the wedding two days ago and then I got invited — just like the Olympics, that’s my thing. I might be at the North Korea meeting, we’ll see,” she joked.

A no-show in the skit? Meghan herself, who was “out in the hallway trying to keep her white relatives out because they’re mental.”

Of course, the actual celebration was very different than SNL‘s imagining. A guest who attended Saturday’s church service followed by lunch at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Hall tells PEOPLE that Harry made sure to thank everyone who helped play a part in his special day with Meghan during their lunch reception.

“It was very off-the-cuff, which was lovely,” says the guest. “He promised that all the Americans wouldn’t steal the swords and said, ‘Please, when you leave, be quiet as you don’t want to wake the neighbors,’ which was quite fun.”

“It was more than you would ever imagine it to be,” adds the guest. “It did feel like we were really part of their very special occasion. It just felt about the two of them, which was great.”

6-Month-Old Baby Thriving After Undergoing Unique Form of Open-Heart Surgery: ‘It’s Extra Special’

The Kelley family is excited for an “extra special” Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday, with their 6-month-old daughter Bryce thriving after undergoing a unique form of open-heart surgery.

As a newborn, doctors discovered that Bryce had a heart murmur, and would likely need surgery.

“It was scary,” her father, Mike, tells PEOPLE. “I think any heart issue sounds scary, and the fact that she had a hole in between the two ventricles was definitely frightening and nerve-wracking.”

Surgery wasn’t certain, and the best-case scenario was that tissue would grow over the hole in Bryce’s heart.

“We were just hoping that the whole side would shrink, and just through monitoring it we found out that it wasn’t going to happen because she wasn’t gaining weight,” her mom, Erin, says. “She had a lot of congestion when she was breathing. She just wasn’t growing the way she was supposed to.”

At four months old, the doctors determined that Bryce would need surgery as soon as possible. Though she was in the 50th percentile for weight when she was born, Bryce had sunk to below zero — “off the charts,” says Mike.

Her cardiologist brought in Dr. Khanh H. Nguyen, Chief, Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network, who performs a unique form of open-heart surgery where the incision is made under the armpit, rather than the traditional method of cutting down the breast bone. Dr. Nguyen started using this different form 14 years ago.

“Most heart surgeries stem from the chest, and we know that this is not the greatest approach, and we had been looking for other options,” he tells PEOPLE. “This technique had been done in Germany and Switzerland, and I thought I should try it, and we never looked back.”

Not only does it leave patients with a much smaller scar — only about three inches long, and under the armpit — but it also has a much faster recovery time — two days versus several weeks.

“This technique works very well in small children, and the fact that they’re children — they tend to be very active and not having to heal the breastbone is very helpful,” Dr. Nguyen says. “Bryce was able to go home in just two days.”

During the surgery, the Kelleys say that they were nervous, but trusted the doctors. It took five hours total, and about three days after the surgery Bryce was “back to her happy self,” Erin says.

“She had a lot of abdominal gas, so the first night she was home was kind of rough and scary, but after that everything went great,” Mike adds.

Now, they’re excited to have her at home and thriving for their first Mother’s Day.

“It will feel very blessed,” Erin says. “I’m very happy to have her in our lives. She’s just a blessing to our family.”

“I think it’s extra special,” Mike adds. “She’s so little and she’s already gone through heart surgery, it’s hard to believe. But you wouldn’t know it.”

House of Horrors Mom Seems ‘Almost in a Daze’ in Jail, Sister Claims: ‘It’s All “Woe Is Me” ‘

The sister of a California mom accused of abusing her 13 children in a house of horrors claims the woman appeared “almost at peace” and “in a daze” during a recent jail visit.

What’s more, Elizabeth Flores says of sister Louise Turpin: “She’s not who I grew up with. Something’s not clicking right in the head, something’s not right. It’s all ‘woe is me.’ ”

Flores will detail her recent sit-down with Turpin in an upcoming episode of The Dr. Oz Show. Exclusive previews from that episode are above and below.

Turpin and her husband, David Turpin, were arrested in mid-January in Perris, California, after authorities say they discovered the 13 Turpin children allegedly living in squalid conditions, with some chained to the furniture.

At the time, the kids ranged in age from 2 to 29 and only the youngest seemed to have been somewhat spared, according to prosecutors.

David, 56, and 49-year-old Louise were quickly taken into custody. Both face numerous criminal charges, including abuse, false imprisonment and torture. They have pleaded not guilty.

Louise’s sister and her cousin Tricia Andreassen recently met with them in separate conversations from behind bars in California. Andreassen and Flores will describe those interactions on a Dr. Oz episode airing Monday.

“I was kind of shocked,” Flores says in one of the clips. “I figured that her main concern would be the children.”

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Asked if she believes Louise is sick, Flores says she does.

“She was almost in a daze, like everything’s going to be alright, like she was just — I didn’t see evilness at all, almost at peace,” Flores says.

(She has previously said she and Louise were not close, telling ABC News in January: “My sister and I haven’t really had a sister relationship for about 20 years. … Other than maybe like a call every once in a while, and sometimes those calls are like a year apart.”)

At times during their conversation, Flores claims, Louise was behaving as if “she was hearing voices,” and she believes Louise has disconnected from the reality of her situation.

In the second clip from the episode, Flores says: “My sister, she’s living a fantasy and she wants to keep it all hidden. She’s playing a game.”

Flores and Andreassen also met with David, who they say acted in a strikingly different manner than his wife.

“He broke down in sobs at one point,” Andreassen says in the second clip.

“I was absolutely shocked,” Flores says. “I am so glad that Louise asked me to see him. I needed that, for me. When I went in there, I immediately saw that he knew he had done wrong, he was remorseful, he cried the whole entire time. It wasn’t fake.”

David was like “a little boy that was ready to confess everything he had done,” Flores says.

“He kept saying, ‘I wish I could tell you about what we’ve done, what happened.’ … He had been advised not to,” she claims.

• For more compelling True Crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard

David and Louise have been in police custody since Jan. 14, when their 17-year-old daughter escaped from their house and called 911, authorities have said.

They are each being held in lieu of $ 9 million bond and possible life sentences in prison if convicted of all charges. Their attorneys have declined to comment specifically about the allegations agains them.

Meanwhile, those caring for the siblings say they are recovering and experiencing new things, including using iPads and learning guitar.

The Turpin children were recently treated to a private concert by cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Louise and David’s conversations with Louise’s relatives will be detailed further on Monday’s The Dr. Oz Show. Check local listings.

Christian Siriano Dressed 17 Stars at the Oscars: ‘It’s Hard to Say No When You Love These Women So Much’

There may be no busier person in the fashion industry – well, make that the universe – than Christian Siriano. The designer, who got his start 10 years ago on Project Runway, has spent the last few months alone dressing dozens of stars for major red carpets (including 10 at the Golden Globes and 3 at the SAG Awards), putting on a fashion show with a celebrity-studded front row, launching a makeup collection with E.L.F. Cosmetics and keeping up his empire (which includes a Payless shoe line, handbags, eyewear, fragrance and bedding, not to mention custom clothing for Barbie dolls).

And still he somehow managed to find time to create 19 total outfits (two stars got two dresses!) for a host of celebrities on Oscar Sunday, from sweeping ballgowns to statement-making suits. We rounded up almost all the looks in one place and caught up with the designer to hear more about the “wild” process of creating distinct looks for a group of women that included Oscar nominees and winners, activists, Olympians and performers.

And though 19 looks were worn, Siriano says there were still more custom outfits that didn’t make an appearance on the carpet: “We sent out so many gowns this season, it was nuts,” he told PeopleStyle. “We made a few more custom looks that didn’t end up on the carpet so we probably would have had about 22 total if that would have happened. It’s hard to say no when you love these women so much and want to support them.”

Whoopi Goldberg got Siriano’s night off on the right foot, so to speak, when she praised the designer for creating a beautiful teal floral gown for her that prioritized her comfort – right down to her combat boots (“I told her I did not mind,” he explains). He also dressed Best Supporting Actress nominee Laurie Metcalf in blush sequins, Kelly Ripa in a ballgown with a green-and-pink bustled bow, author and activist Janet Mock in a sequin and chiffon tank dress with train and Olympic skier Lindsay Vonn in a sexy sheer tulle number (which had sleeves attached mere moments before she hit the red carpet). (Not pictured but also in Siriano: Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.)

The designer says the longest lead time he had on some of the gowns was about three weeks, while others (including Vonn’s and Mock’s, above, and Janelle Monae’s, below) were created in two days. Some actresses (including Metcalf) had several options to choose from and picked the winner during the final week of fittings. “It has been wild,” he says. “The studio is a war zone with fabric all over the place and custom patterns for so many actresses. Right before the Oscars we just showed our largest collection to date with 72 looks celebrating my 10 year anniversary so I’m not sure how my team survived! But we did it and feel really proud.”

RELATED PHOTOS: See the Red Carpet’s Most Showstopping Styles!

Siriano also created custom gowns for singer Keala Settle, who performed the nominated song “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman. She walked the red carpet in a peach gown embellished with crystal vines and brought the house down in a cornflower blue V-neck number with iridescent sparkle detailing. Settle, who also wore a Siriano design to the Golden Globes, wrote that she felt “honored and blessed” on this Oscars red carpet. (Settle’s performance was a highlight for the designer, he says: “Keala Settle was sick a few days before and did even see her dresses until the Thursday before and she had rehearsals that day. When she hit that stage and sang her butt off in that gown, it was a great moment.”

Siriano’s night didn’t slow down once the Oscars ended. His designs were seen on at least 10 more stars (including Mock, who changed into another of his looks), all as individual as the stars wearing them.

From left, Busy Phillips wore a tank dress with steel blue sparkly skirt; Amy Adams wore a black gown with structured shoulders and a neckline cutout; Janelle Monae picked a lipstick-red peplum suit with crystal epaulets and train; Patricia Clarkson wore a sapphire sequin spaghetti-strap number with flared hemline; Alicia Silverstone selected a high-neck highlighter-pink column.

Holland Taylor wore a suit of Siriano’s design; Rachel Bloom selected a midnight-blue velvet column dress; Abbie Cornish donned a long-sleeve gown with full floral skirt; Jessica Williams stunned in a black silhouette-hugging strapless gown with large bronze ruffle down the side, and Sarah Silverman wore a dress with peplum and mermaid hem. And you’ll notice that each of the stars, who range in age from 32 (Monae) to 75 (Taylor) has a distinctive style and personality that Siriano works to capture in his red carpet designs.

“It is hard and challenging , but that is actually my favorite part,” he says. “Just working with so many different women and their stylists and they all want to look and feel different. So I try to make them happy but also keep my voice as a designer alive.”

Siriano has long garnered praise for dressing every age, skin tone and body type, working with stars (perhaps most notably Leslie Jones) who have previously felt marginalized in the fashion industry to design gorgeous, just-right-for-them ensembles – and in doing so, he’s gained a huge, vocal (again, notably Leslie Jones) and star-studded fan base. And while Siriano is a huge fan of the recent drive to talk about causes on the red carpet, he’s also adamant that the artistry, hard work and, yes, business sense of the fashion industry continues to be appreciated as well – a fact proven further by his Instagram of the team that made the 17 celebrity dressings possible.

And though Siriano needs a vacation about as badly as you do after reading about his crazy 2018 so far (“Maybe a beach in Mexico?” he suggests hopefully), he says the rewards were worth all the hard work. “Getting sweet notes from so many of the women was a great moment,” he says. “Getting a text that says ‘I feel so great tonight’ is a designer’s dream.”

Find Out Helena Bonham Carter’s Connection to the Royal Family (Hint: It’s Not The Crown!)

When Helena Bonham Carter takes to the small screen to play Princess Margaret in the third season of The Crown, she’ll be well prepared.

The London Evening Standard newspaper reported last week that Bonham Carter was “all but confirmed” to take on the role of Queen Elizabeth’s younger, rebellious sister. (Olivia Colman has been announced as taking over from Claire Foy as the Queen.)

And she’s certainly got the pedigree for the job: Bonham Carter not only played Margaret’s mom, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother in the 2010 movie The King’s Speech, but her real-life grandmother was a great friend of the late Prime Minister Winston Churchill – a key character in the hit Netflix show’s first season.

Bonham Carter — famous for her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter series, among other films – previously spoke with PEOPLE in 2011 about her royal role in the film The King’s Speech. She said that she spoke with royal expert Hugo Vickers to ready herself to play Margaret and Elizabeth’s mother, and sourced rare footage of the royal talking to help.

“She had a rule that to be a public figure, never complain and never explain and never speak publicly,” Bonham Carter said in 2011. “That was why it was so hard to find her speaking so candidly. The only bit that I found was her talking about Castle of Mey towards the end of her life.”

Bonham Carter believes the Queen Mother was “incredibly witty” and had a steely side to her character.

“She developed it almost through necessity and almost through life experience,” she said. “Underneath she was always someone who knew her own mind and in comparison to him she had a very strong sense of self and a basic confidence that he lacked.”

“She recognized that something had to be done and also out of sheer compassion and a wish to help someone she loved who was in such pain. She was an optimist also, whereas he was innately somewhat pessimist.”

The Queen Mother had a way of both giving people something, but also holding back something her “own core self,” Bonham Carter believes. “She played very low status in some ways with the cocked head and humble,” she said of the consort. “But she also knew, ultimately, her position. She knew who she was!”

The difficulty of a life in the public eye – captured so well in the first two seasons of The Crown – is not lost on the actress either.

“I’ve always had respect for them as individuals,” she said. “I’ve never had any envy for that kind of life. The sheer amount of duty! You also don’t have too much personal freedom. It is a gift to know how to be a public figure.”

Bonham Carter’s Crown links continue with her grandmother Violet, who was one of Churchill’s closest female friends. Violet was the daughter of former Prime Minister H.H. Asquith and was a formidable politician herself, serving as the President of the Liberal Party between 1945 and 1947. In 1915, she married her father’s Principal Private Secretary Sir Maurice Bonham Carter. Their son Raymond is Helena’s father.

Her grandmother’s own revelations about her close friend even provide historical context to scenes depicted in The Crown. In show’s first season, Churchill — played by John Lithgow, who won a Golden Globe and an Emmy for the role — is seen painting, a pastime that is absorbs him and is a respite from the affairs of state.

In the official companion book to the first season of The Crown, historian Robert Lacey writes that Churchill’s “longtime friend Violet Bonham Carter remarked that his ‘work with a paintbrush was the only occupation that the great orator ever pursued in total silence.’”

Father of Missing N.C. 3-Year-Old Girl Says Her Disappearance Is Suspicious: ‘It’s a Nightmare’

The father of 3-year-old Mariah Woods, who was reported missing early Monday, told a reporter that he’s suspicious of his daughter’s disappearance from her Jacksonville, North Carolina, home.

“Someone just walked right up in there, grabbed the 3-year-old out of the bed and she didn’t cry, she didn’t scream?” Alex Woods told local TV station WCTI-12. “Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?”

Mariah’s mother Kristy, who shares a mobile home with her live-in boyfriend, reported her daughter missing at about 6:45 a.m. Monday, officials have said. She told officials she last saw the girl when she put her to bed at about 11:30 p.m. the night before.

“My last memory of her was feeding her and putting her to bed,” Woods told local station Channel 12. “I told her I loved her and she loved me.”

On Wednesday morning, law enforcement officials hoped for a break in the case when they released a surveillance photo and asked for help identifying a woman and child in the photo. But after a few hours, officials learned the pair was unrelated to the investigation.

Onslow County Sheriff Hans Zimmer said the search was still ongoing. Law enforcement officials from 14 agencies, which conducted more than 100 interviews, were working around the clock, he said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

“Our goal is to find Mariah and bring her back home. We want to bring her home safely,” he said. “If you have a shed, a barn, a wooded area, take a look and call us immediately if there’s something out of the ordinary.”

Zimmer added he wanted to hear from anyone who spoke with Mariah’s family on Sunday or Monday as investigators work to develop a timeline.

Law enforcement have not commented on whether anyone is a suspect or a person of interest.

Mariah’s father Alex heard about the news of his daughter when he heard the AMBER Alert announced on the radio. He was shocked to hear his daughter’s name.

“It’s unreal. It’s a nightmare,” he said. “You hear about this stuff all the time but you never think it’s going to happen to you or your kids.”
