Scott Eastwood

In Scott Eastwood's recent GQ Australia article, the 30-year-old admitted he still hadn't reached out to his late ex-girlfriend's father since her fatal car accident, as he hadn't "found the right words."

Well, on Tuesday night, Scott found those words and mustered up the courage to call Alexander Brangman — the father of Jewel Brangman who passed away after a defective airbag inflated with too much force, spewing metal shrapnel into her neck and killing her. So tragic.

The 61-year-old single father spoke to People about his emotional phone conversation with the actor nearly two years since he lost his daughter.

Iconic French Fashion Designer Sonia Rykiel Passes Away At 86

Filed under: Fashion SmashionR.I.P.Sad Sad

Sonia Rykiel passes away at 86.

This is a huge loss for the fashion world.

Sonia Rykiel, iconic French designer and a pioneer in the industry, has passed away at the age of 86 from complications of Parkinson's disease.

During her lifetime, the designer was lauded for her groundbreaking contributions, such as being the first to make maternity clothes that actually flattered and revealed a woman's pregnant shape instead of hiding it.

Similar to how Coco Chanel liberated women from corsets, Rykiel focused on making clothes for the average woman who valued functionality over fussiness.

In the 1980s, her empire expanded to include fragrances, menswear, and accessories, but she retired in 2009, handing over the reins of her business to daughter Nathalie.

Rykiel was twice given the Legion of Honor, the highest award in France, by French Presidents Francois Mitterrand and Nicolas Sarkozy.

May she rest in peace!
