Cleveland, Anna
Model, daughter of supermodel Pat Cleveland, named in a law suit accusing her of pulling out of her commitment to a documentary about her life during the Spring 2017 season.

Comme Des Garçons
Dropped a surprise three-piece capsule collection in collaboration with Vetements, just in time (to sell out) for the new year.

Gosling, Ryan
Reprising his role as Damien Chazelle's leading man — this time, in a biopic about astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Harry, Debbie
Within a day of the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, after a sudden heart attack, Hollywood legend Debbie Harry died at age 84. She leaves behind a truly stunning collection of Hollywood costumes.

Trump, Donald
With just a few tweets, the president-elect (who, though he seems to think to the contrary, is not yet in office) rattles Middle East diplomacy. The word "unprecedented" has been tossed around a lot in the weeks since Trump emerged victorious in the presidential election; here, New Yorker editor David Remnick gives some weight to the expression. Pairs best with John Kerry's outgoing address as Secretary of State.

Trump, Ivanka
We advise against mixing business with politics. Especially when your business isn't precisely Made In America.

Washington, Kamasi
Like Thundercat, Kamasi Washington — Kendrick Lamar and John Legend collaborator, close friend of Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Terrace Martin, and more — had a pretty excellent year, musically speaking. He'll charge into the new year with a series of shows at the Brooklyn Bowl; jazz is having a moment. (La La Land could have forecast this one.)

2016
Goodbye to all that, or something.
