John McCain to Posthumously Receive Father of the Year Award

The National Father’s Day Council will honor the late Sen. John McCain at its annual awards next month.
McCain, who died of brain cancer in August 2018, will receive a Father of the Year award on June 13 at noon at the group’s luncheon at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel. Also to be honored at the event will be Tom Kingsbury, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Burlington Stores Inc.
The son and grandson of Navy Admirals, McCain served as a naval aviator for 22 years following his 1958 graduation from the Naval Academy. While on his 23rd mission over North Vietnam, his plane was struck by a missile, forcing him to eject, which resulted in him breaking both arms and one leg. McCain then spent years as a prisoner of war in Hanoi, where he was subjected to torture and denied medical treatment.
Following his release, McCain served as a naval liaison to the Senate. He retired from the Navy in 1981 with naval honors including the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona in 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1986. During his time

Every TV Show Canceled or Ending So Far This Year

This list contains shows whose networks made their cancellation announcements in 2019. Series like HBO’s Game of Thrones and USA’s Mr. Robot made their respective decisions before 2019. We’ve added twenty-one new shows since our last update in April.  

We’re keeping a running tally on all of the TV shows canceled or announced to be ending in 2019 so far. Some shows were fortunate enough to end on their own terms, like Starz’s popular crime drama Power, which will conclude after its expanded 15-episode sixth and final season.

God of War’s Script Was Rewritten After a Year of Development

In a presentation given during GDC 2019, God of War director Cory Barlog revealed how he actively approached the game as a continuation rather than a reboot, that the game’s script had been rewritten after a year of work, and how he continuously pitched the game during the course of development.

Before writing the game, Barlog wanted to establish that SIE Santa Monica wasn’t rebooting the series, but expanding upon it. He compared the mythologies that exist in God of War to “galaxies spread throughout a complete universe,” saying they all “exist together concurrently, and they are simply separated by geography.” Using that as a basis, he had to figure out how to describe this game, wanting to stay away from calling it a reboot.

A ‘Premium’ Titanfall Experience Is Coming Later This Year

Hot on the heels of the release of free-to-play battle royale, Apex Legends, Respawn has assured fans there is “more Titanfall” coming, too.

On Twitter, CEO Vince Zampella teased there is more than just Apex Legends in Respawn’s future, saying “We are also working on more Titanfall for later in the year.” He continued by saying “We love being able to experiment in this crazy universe!”

Bicester Village is a huge draw for Chinese consumers and according to the discount designer outlet, Bicester is the second-most visited site in the U.K. after Buckingham Palace for the Chinese. It also has a presence in China with two sister villages in Shanghai and Suzhou.
Of the 10 women’s wear designers, some already have a U.K. presence and others are using the opportunity to get more exposure, include Anaïs Jourden, I-Am-Chen, Marieyat, Matter Matters, Mukzin, Ryan Lo, Snow Xue Gao, Xu Zhi and Yang Li.
“I really wanted to do a pop-up that celebrated the real breadth of aesthetics that Chinese designers have to offer”, said Lau, who pointed to the variety of designs ranging from minimal to kitschy and graphic.
Lau, who hails from Hong Kong and has long supported Chinese fashion, is excited to provide an international platform for these young talents. While the timing is centered around Chinese New Year, she has steered

Dealmoon’s ‘Year of the Pig’ Limited-product Releases Catch Attention

PIGGLY WIGGLY: A time of abundance, “prosperity and good fortune,” the Year of the Pig represents a platter of spending opportunity on Dealmoon for luxury retailers from Gucci to Chloé to Baccarat.
With 17.6 million unique monthly visits, a majority of which are Chinese-American Millennials, Dealmoon.com is one e-tailer plumping its product selection with limited-edition products for Chinese New Year, which falls on Tuesday, February 5.
“Three Little Pigs” is Gucci’s iteration of the Year of the Pig, dating to a 2000-year-old Chinese zodiac tradition, rendering an entire line of handbags, accessories and clothing that features the storybook on its web site. Others dabbling in Dealmoon’s Year of the Pig limited-edition products will be brands such as Prada, Nina Hauzer, Superdry, S’well, Monica Vinader and Chloé.

Pursuing the symbolic prosperity in the Year of the Pig, Cameron Rooney, affiliate marketing manager at Superdry said: “We make our own luck’ — or so the saying goes — and Superdry’s limited-edition Chinese New Year collection does just that by showcasing a lucky attitude.

Celebrity Pick Jenny Packham Sets Sights on Expansion in a Milestone Year

LONDON — Designer Jenny Packham is best known for her bridal gowns, red carpet sparklers and demure, printed or embellished dresses worn by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, but on the rocky terrain of British fashion — where so many companies struggle to survive — she’s also a member of an elite society of long-standing brands.
Her 30-year-old business, which she runs with her husband Mathew Anderson, is independent, profitable and makes its money from clothing — with the business split 50/50 between the eveningwear and bridal collections. She has a healthy wholesale business, a flagship on Mount Street here, and in July opened her first store in China at the Beijing Peninsula Hotel, a 153-square-foot space that carries her bridalwear.
Packham has always stuck to what she does best, and her clients — Emily Blunt, Kate Hudson, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Adele, Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Kerry Washington — keep coming back for more. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a Packham dress each time she appeared outside St. Mary’s Hospital for her photo op after giving birth.

Mario Lopez Shares the Parenting Tips that Won Him Father of the Year (No. 4 Is So Sweet!)

Everyone is telling their dad this Father’s Day that he’s the Father of the Year, but only a few men can say they were actually given that title at an awards ceremony. This year, Mario Lopez (as well as Willie Geist and PVH CEO Manny Chirico) were honored by the National Father’s Day Council for their work balancing career and fatherhood – though in Lopez’s case, he says it really is as easy as he makes it look.

“If it doesn’t involve my family or the well being of them, it’s all the small stuff, and I don’t sweat it,” he tells PEOPLE. “Your whole thought process changes. No matter how long or how stressful the day, when I open the door and I hear the little feet coming and yelling ‘Daddy!’ it kinda makes everything feel better.”

Clearly his kids (with wife Courtney Mazza) Gia, 7, and Dominic, 4, already think their dad is the best, but what does it mean for a council dedicated to promoting fatherhood role models to give him the designation? “I gotta tell ya, out of all the different accolades I have received over the years, whether for wrestling or other sport, or my Emmys and all that kind of stuff, this is cool because it’s based on my character – judging your sense of responsibility on things that really matter,” he says. “Being a father is my favorite role yet, and to be recognized for it is truly incredible. I embrace it, love it, and every moment is cool.”

So as the official Father of the Year, does Lopez feel qualified to dispense advice? “You will hear a lot of advice from various different people, but if you come from a place of love, you can’t go wrong,” he says. His top tips?

“Some people want to go be their friend, you gotta be a parent first. Kids respond to respect, structure and discipline.”
“You gotta listen to your kids too, though, you can’t just talk down to them.”
“Get as much help as you can whether it’s grandma, or nannies – any and as much support as you can. Don’t try to be a superhero all by yourself.”
“I think children respond to positive attention and positive atmosphere. So, if they see Dad loving on Mom and see you happy, I think that’s a beautiful thing.”
“Last thing: monitor your child’s use of the Internet. That’s another important one.”

Does he take advice from other celebrity dads? “I’m not really into taking advice from other celebrities, but there are other dads out there that I like and respect,” he says. “I like Mark Wahlberg a lot, he’s got a few kids, he’s Catholic like I am. I love the Rock, the way he is with his daughter, he’s another dad I admire who I’ve known for a long time.”

Ultimately, Lopez relies on his own parenting philosophy to be the best dad he can to his kids. “If you come from a place of love, you can’t really go wrong. But have structure, maintain a strong form of discipline; you gotta be a parent first. Stay united as parents,” he says. “I am a little better when it comes to the tough disciplinarian stuff, I think I’m pretty good at laying down the law and being firm. My wife is pretty much better at everything else!”

So what does the Father of the Year want for Father’s Day on Sunday? “Just laying in bed and sleeping all day. I’m always running around and doing something. Chilling in bed, falling in and out of naps.”

Father’s Day Spending Expected to Hit $15.3 Billion This Year

Dads can expect a little less to be spent on them for Father’s Day this year.
According to a study by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics, spending on the holiday is projected to reach $ 15.3 billion this year, down just slightly from the $ 15.5 billion spent last year.
This translates into an average of $ 133 a person for the 77 percent of Americas who plan on celebrating the holiday on June 17. Individuals between 25 and 34 years of age are expected to spend the most, an average of $ 188.
“We are pleased to see consumer confidence continue to rise, leading to another near-record holiday spend on Father’s Day,” said NRF president and chief executive officer Matthew Shay. “Leading into the second half of the year, Americans are looking forward to treating their dads, and retailers will be prepared to offer a variety of gift options that will create new memories on this special day.”
According to the survey, consumers plan to spend $ 2.2 billion on apparel, which is expected to be purchased by 43 percent of shoppers; $ 2.1 billion on gift cards (42 percent), and $ 1.8 billion on consumer electronics (20 percent). In addition, $ 878 million will be spent on home

Roseanne Barr Thought She Was Going Blind for a Whole Year — But It Was a Misdiagnosis

After a whole year of thinking she was going blind due to macular degeneration and glaucoma, Roseanne Barr received some good news: She was no longer losing her eyesight, and it was a misdiagnosis all along.

“I went to a new doctor about a year ago,” Barr tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “She told me I don’t have macular degeneration, but rather a mole on the inside of my eye that’s growing, and that’s why my vision is narrowing. Probably in the next year or so I can get it removed. I have a bad eye, but I’m not losing my eyesight.”

“My dad has macular degeneration so I thought it was genetic,” she adds. “I just accepted it. It was a way better diagnosis than some of my friends were getting. It’s not deadly. I didn’t take it too badly.”

In 2015, the 65-year-old actress was given the news of her deteriorating eyesight and immediately took to her own treatment plan.

“I have macular degeneration and glaucoma, so is good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes. It’s a good medicine for a lot of things,” Barr previously told the Daily Beast.

For more on the Roseanne revival, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on stands Friday

While Barr admits that she was scared at first, she eventually learned to accept the health scare.

“I’m positive that nothing will go right in life,” she says. “That lets me off the hook. You never know. It’s never what you think and it’s never what you dread – it’s always something else that you didn’t expect. So you might as well live every day and have as much fun as you can. Do at least one good deed a day anonymously. Have as much fun as you can have.”

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign

to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

Now, Barr, who spends a lot of her free time babysitting her grandkids and working on her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, just finished wrapping the revival of Roseanne as a limited ABC series.

“The first day in the writers room, I thought I was in heaven,” she says. “Every idea I had all this time, I had pitched to them and they picked them right up. It was kind of like a machine – it worked so well. The first day on the set, I hadn’t seen John (Goodman) or Laurie (Metcalfe) for a long time, and there we were. It was really exciting to watch them rebuild the set — it’s just perfect. It still felt new, but very familiar.”

The Roseanne revival premieres Tuesday on at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Galeries Lafayette Rings In Year of the Dog With Chinese Display

URBAN LANDSCAPES: Galeries Lafayette, tuned in to the growing importance of consumers from China, unveiled displays by Chinese artist Song Xiewei in the windows lining its Paris flagship to kick off the Chinese New Year, which begins Friday.
Executives from the French department store and the Chinese ambassador to France lined up to cut the red ribbon for the displays along the Boulevard Haussmann to reveal hanging stretches of embroidered, fabric-covered sculptures depicting the mountain forms painted by the 12th-century landscape master Wang Ximeng. The dreamy, cloudlike pieces of various elongated shapes represented the Song dynasty painting “A Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains.”
The store is offering special Spring Festival products geared to Chinese customers through March 4, including a Swatch Woof watch and limited edition of Panerai watches covered with a dog engraving. Packets of red, hand-engraved cards from Smythson will be offered for purchases above 250 euros.
After the ribbon-cutting, the Chinese delegation, which included officials from the country’s state-owned Arts and Entertainment Group, and French executives moved upstairs to an intimate cocktail event in the Angelina café tucked behind the luxury fashion labels on a higher floor of the store.

Alexandra Shulman, Richard James Named in Queen’s New Year Honors List

HONORABLE MENTIONS: Queen Elizabeth II has unveiled her annual New Year Honors list, with members from the fashion and entertainment industries set to receive royal recognition in 2018.
Alexandra Shulman; Savile Row tailor Richard James; Nicholas Wheeler, founder of Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts; Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb, and The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr are among the 1,123 names on the list.
Shulman, the former British Vogue editor in chief who stepped down from her role earlier this year, will receive a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE, for her services to the industry.
Shulman was the longest-serving editor of the magazine, working at the publication for 25 years. She was given an OBE, or Order of the British Empire honor, 13 years ago.
James will be awarded an Order of the British Empire, or OBE, for his contribution to fashion. He celebrated the label’s 25th anniversary this year. The brand, which was sold last year to Charles S. Cohen, will in February open its first U.S. stand-alone store on Park Avenue in New York.
Wheeler, who launched a multichannel retail business specializing in men’s shirting and apparel, will receive an Order of the British Empire for his service to retail.

Did Hillary Clinton Help Make Ultra Violet Pantone’s Color of the Year

PURPLE REIGN: Has Hillary Clinton helped make ultra violet the Pantone Color of the Year 2018?
It is safe to say that no other pubic figure indirectly championed the unmistakable shade than the former presidential candidate in the past year or so. Conceding defeat to Donald Trump in November, Clinton wore a Ralph Lauren Collection gray pantsuit with purple accents and a purple crewneck blouse at the New Yorker Hotel. For added effect, her husband Bill stood in the wings wearing a tie in the same hue. The prom queen and prom king combo delivered a message of unity, according to trend forecaster Li Edelkoort.
At a time when many diehard Democrats and Republicans were not seeing eye-to-eye, Clinton chose purple, which is a combination of blue and red. “She symbolized the unity of these two extremes, which I think was very wise and beautiful and symbolic,” said Edelkoort, adding that Tim Kaine’s wife Anne Holton wore the color, too, “so they really decided on it.”
Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways from such designers as Christopher Kane, Carolina Herrera, Ann Demeulemeester, Alberta Ferretti, Calvin

Cannes Film Festival to Start a Day Earlier Next Year

SWITCHING DATES: The Cannes Film Festival will start a day earlier next year, a change that moves the awards ceremony to Saturday, rather than Sunday as in previous years, in a bid to increase the exposure of the event.
The festival will run for the same amount of time as before, and is now scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, through Saturday, May 19.
“The festival is beginning a new period in its history,” said Pierre Lescure, who runs the event. The new schedule is intended to “rebalance the two weeks of the event” as well as bring “new energy to the proceedings,” after celebrating the 70th anniversary last year, organizers of the film bonanza said in a statement.
“We intend to renew the principles of our organization as much as possible, while continuing to question the cinema of our age and to be present through its upheavals,” Lescure also said.
The Tuesday start also means an additional gala evening before the festival weekend.

Victoria Beckham Partners With Reebok, Plans Collaboration for Next Year

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM: With her new deal with Reebok, Victoria Beckham is the latest designer to link up with a major athletic brand.
The British-born designer let her 17.6 million Instagram followers know by posting a video of herself wearing the Club C sneakers outside of the company’s new Boston headquarters. She made the most of her first day on the scene, hosting an all-company meeting, touring the office, checking out the brand’s archives and holding initial design and planning meetings.
The choice of Beckham is meant to further Reebok’s message of women’s empowerment, which includes a roster of internationally known personalities like Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, Aly Raisman and Teyana Taylor. With four children and a multimillion-dollar business, Beckham would appear to have little time for exercise. Whippet-lean as she is, Beckham has spoken publicly about her daily two-hour morning workouts and healthy diet. Reebok executives undoubtedly approve of that regimen. The fact that Beckham’s designs are meant to relay a sense of strength, confidence and power also met their approval.
Beckham said, “I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades. To have the

Remo Ruffini Named Italian Entrepreneur of the Year by EY

MILAN — Remo Ruffini, Moncler president and chief executive officer, received on Thursday the EY award for Italian Entrepreneur of the Year.
The consulting firm assigns the award, which is at its 21st edition, to entrepreneurs who managed, through their innovative spirit and strategic vision, to create value contributing to the growth of the Italian economy.
“When I acquired Moncler, I thought it had a unique history and heritage. I was absolutely sure of the fact that he had the potential to become a special brand and, with great coherence, along with my team, we developed this innovative project in the respect of our DNA,” Ruffini said. “Today Moncler is a global brand, which generated revenues of more than 1 billion euros at the end of 2016 and is present in more than 70 countries. I consider this award a signification recognition, highlighting the continues efforts and the passion guiding our daily work aimed at reaching more and more ambitious goals.”
As reported, in the nine months ended Sept. 30, Moncler’s revenues climbed 15 percent to 736.8 million euros, compared with 639.3 million euros in the same period last year, lifted by all distribution channels and geographic markets.
