Zachary Prell Creates iPhone Cases From Shirt Fabrics

Zachary Prell fans can now get their favorite dress shirt fabrics on their iPhones.
The men’s wear brand has partnered with Incipio, a California-based mobile device accessories brand, on a capsule collection of designs for iPhone 7/8, iPhone 7 Plus/8 Plus and iPhone X.

A case from the Zachary Prell x Incipio collaboration. 

The Zachary Prell x Incipio collaboration encompasses five styles of European print fabrics from the label’s sport shirt collections in navy, gray and light blue in floral or check patterns. The cotton fabrics have been fortified with a protective frame that guards against drops and scuffs. Each case also comes with a set of collar stays.
“For years, I used a basic solid case on my iPhone and began to think about how such an important everyday accessory could be more personalized and special,” Prell said. “I had a vision for marrying our modern shirting fabrics with the most advanced iPhone cases on the market. So, I began researching different case makers and consistently found Incipio to be the most innovative manufacturer.”

George and Amal Clooney Donate $100,000 to Help Migrant Children Separated from Families

George and Amal Clooney are weighing in on the migrant children crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border — and doing their part to help the separated families.

One year after welcoming twins Ella and Alexander, the couple reflected on how their son and daughter will react when they learn about how children were taken from their parents who are caught illegally crossing the border.

“At some point in the future our children will ask us: ‘Is it true, did our country really take babies from their parents and put them in detention centers?’ And when we answer yes, they’ll ask us what we did about it. What we said. Where we stood,” the Clooneys said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “We can’t change this administration’s policy but we can help defend the victims of it.”

They added, “Today, the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate $ 100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.”

The Clooney Foundation has also sponsored the resettlement of Syrian and Yazidi refugees in the U.S.

RELATED: The Most Heartbreaking Photos of Children at the U.S.-Mexico Border — and How You Can Help

The Young Center’s Executive Director, Maria Woltjen, thanked the couple for their support during this “vital” time.

“This Administration’s policy disregards international law and basic principles of human decency. To treat children in such a cruel manner not only violates their legal rights but also their basic needs,” she said in a statement. “We are doing everything we can to advocate on behalf of the thousands of children who are separated and alone, and we are grateful for the generous support of George and Amal Clooney and the Clooney Foundation for Justice — it could not be more vital at this time.”

The Clooneys join a number of other stars who have blasted the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, which prosecutes undocumented immigrants who cross the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Since implementing the policy, more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents since April, according to the Associated Press.

After House Speaker Paul Ryan shared a Father’s Day post on Twitter talking about how his life changed when he became a dad, John Legend shot back, “Seriously, f— you. Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father’s day.”

RELATED: Fundraiser to Reunite Migrant Parents with Their Children Raises Over $ 6 Million in 4 Days – After Initially Aiming at Raising $ 1,500

The tweet came days after Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, announced they were making a $ 288K donation to the ACLU on President Trump’s birthday to draw attention to the “immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration.”

Kathy Griffin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Reese Witherspoon, Ellen DeGeneres and more celebrities also spoke out against the current conditions.

In her first public commentary about President Trump and his administration, former First Lady Laura Bush wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post that was published on Father’s Day and criticized the immigration policies.

“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” Mrs. Bush wrote.

In another surprising move, current First Lady Melania Trump released a statement about her husband’s controversial immigration policy.

“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families,” her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told PEOPLE.

Grisham added that her boss is calling on Democrats and Republicans to fix the nation’s immigration crisis.

“ hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” Grisham said, adding that Mrs. Trump “believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

Draper James and Rockets of Awesome Collaborate for Children’s Wear With Help From SCAD Students

The SCAD students pitched in on what is the Nashville-based brand’s first venture into children’s apparel. Like the Reese Witherspoon-founded brand’s women’s collection, the styles for the junior set is southernlike in that there are plenty of stripes and true blue styles. SCAD students in the Collaborative Learning Center — fashion, accessory design, graphic design, fashion marketing and management, and fibers — helped design the collection over the course of a semester. That experience included a few classes led by Draper James’ team. Their designs were featured in the university’s annual fashion show SCAD FASHWKND.
The confirmation that “Legally Blonde 3” is in the works wasn’t the only celebratory news that Witherspoon had to share in the past few days with her 13 million Instagram followers. There was also Monday’s double graduation — her daughter Ava Phillippe graduated from high school and her son Deacon Phillippe has closed the book on junior high school.

Was Fred Rogers a Navy SEAL? Plus What Else We Learned from New Mr. Rogers Documentary

Long before the cacophony of today’s TV with its thousands of channels, squabbling housewives and violent games of thrones, an unlikely icon emerged with an unpopular idea — quality educational programming for very young kids. With Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred McFeely Rogers left an indelible mark on millions with his quiet sincerity and life lessons. The Pennsylvania-born Presbyterian minister “just wanted to make people feel good,” says his friend and the show’s floor manager Nick Tallo.

50 years after the show began and 15 years after Rogers’s death at 74, a new documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, explores the life and legacy of the man inside those iconic sweaters. “His decision to level with kids in a very sensitive way was his greatest accomplishment,” says director Morgan Neville. “Spending time with him today is like revisiting a part of yourself.” Here are five things we learned about TV’s king of kindness from Neville’s documentary.

He had a difficult childhood

Born in 1928 to parents James and Nancy, Rogers was shy and sickly as a boy—“I had every imaginable childhood disease, even scarlet fever,” he recalls in the film—and therefore spent much of his time alone in his room crafting elaborate stories with puppets and writing music. After earning a divinity degree and a master’s degree in child development, Rogers worked for NBC in New York City before developing his own show at Pittsburgh’s public-TV station WQED. “People thought about toddlers very differently 50 years ago,” says Neville. “He was so far ahead of the curve.”

He fought racism on-air

Despite the show’s calm atmosphere, Rogers didn’t shy away from controversial issues. During his first season in 1968, he produced a special to help kids cope after Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination. The next year he tackled racial tensions when he invited black costar François Clemmons, as the neighborhood police officer, to join him in a kiddie pool and helped dry Clemmons’s feet with a towel. “At that time in the nation, white people in urban settings were putting acid in swimming pools to keep black people out of the pools,” recalls Clemmons. “He was very much aware of what was happening in America. He didn’t put his head in the sand. I’ve had countless people over the years tell me how deeply, deeply meaningful it was.”

For much more on Fred Rogers and his untold story, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE now on newsstands

The Land of Make Believe occasionally followed him home

“He used puppet voices at the dinner table with his children when he wanted to express different facets of his personality,” says Neville. Which, according to his wife of 50 years, Joanne, 90, was the same on TV and at home. “He was to me and to the family who he is to everybody else,” she says. The couple met while studying music at Rollins College and married in1952 (Rogers proposed in a letter). They have two sons, James, 58, and John, 57, who spent much of their younger years visiting the set. “We all came to an understanding of this is who he was, and this is what life was going to be,” Joanne, a professional pianist, says of navigating Rogers’s fame and work commitments. “Over the years we learned that maybe we needed our own lives too, so that’s how we dealt with that.”

No, he wasn’t a Navy SEAL

With the rise of the Internet, outlandish urban legends emerged—including that Rogers had secretly been a Navy SEAL or wore long sleeves to cover tattoos. “People have an idea of what they want him to be, so they create a legend,” says Clemmons of the rumors—including those questioning his sexuality. “Fred was nurturing, loving, gentle and very much heterosexual,” says Clemmons, who came out as gay himself decades later and says Rogers became a surrogate father to him.

He’s missed more than ever

Joanne says that her husband’s lasting legacy is his clarity about what he stood for—kindness, goodness and neighborliness. “He did in his life what he said was so important, which is to give the gift of his honest self,” she says. Adds Tallo: “It’s sad to know that there aren’t very many people as nice as Fred anymore. No matter what, he could make you say to yourself, ‘It’s okay.’ ”

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is now playing in select theaters.

Ellen Pompeo’s Purse Stolen From Her While She Vacations in Italy: ‘I Blame the Rosé’

Ellen Pompeo‘s Italian vacation hit a little bit of a bump in the road on Friday when a thief snatched her purse from her in Florence.

The Grey’s Anatomy star, 48, shared the news of her robbery on Instagram, writing, “My purse was stolen from right under my nose!!”

“I blame the rosé!!” Pompeo joked.

Luckily, Pompeo’s bag was recovered — a good thing for both the star and the thief, as Pompeo was ready to fight him or her.

“Grazia to who ever stole it for dropping it on the street exactly in tact,” Pompeo wrote. “I was tracking my phone and chasing you down… had I caught you… it would not have ended well for you… I am nice but lets not forget my heritage… NAPOLITANO…. hai furtuno y io hai destine 👊🏼🇮🇹😘.”

“Also I hope you were smiling because e Sarai catturato perche sei in macchina 📷📷🎞” Pompeo added, explaining that the thief had been caught by security cameras and would be captured.

The actress also took time to thank the Florence police, who were in the picture she shared, and the staff at the Ristorante & Wine Bar dei Frescobaldi, where she was was dining at the time.

“Grazia a polizia Di Firenzia squadro volanti y resterante Frescobaldi,” Pompeo wrote in Italian, later teasing that her use of the language might not have been exact. “Please forgive my horrible Italian.”

Pompeo is traveling in between seasons of Grey’s. The acclaimed ABC medical drama will return for its 15th season this fall.

She’s been with the show since the beginning, starring as the title character Meredith Grey, and recently negotiated her $ 20 million salary — making her the highest paid women on television.

“I was really tired and I knew was stepping away, so it was a moment for me to say, ‘If I’m going to stay, I’m away from my kids a lot, it’s really got to be worth my while. I have to break some glass ceiling to have it worth it for me to stay,’ ” Pompeo previously told PEOPLE of her negotiation.

“I had support and I had the courage to do it and I was also completely willing to walk away,” she continued. “I was ready for it to not go my way, that’s the most important thing. It might not go your way, you’ve got to be okay with that.”

RELATED VIDEO: Ellen Pompeo Scores a $ 20 Million Salary Win While the Pay Gap Continues in Hollywood

As for her trip to Italy, should she get in any more trouble, Pompeo could always call on her Grey’s costar Giacomo Gianniotti.

The actor, who plays Dr. Andrew DeLuca on the show, commented on her Instagram, offering his support (and help with her Italian, should she need it). 

“C’mon Ellen! You didn’t hit up your boy for an Italian translation?” he joked. “Haha I’ll be there in July and I’ll be on the prowl for your boy, he don’t stand a chance. Glad you are safe!”

Jenna Dewan Twerks Through Her ‘Late-Night’ Fitness Routine Following Split from Channing Tatum

It’s never a bad time for Jenna Dewan to sneak in a sweat session.

The Step Up star, who recently announced her split from husband Channing Tatum after nearly nine years of marriage, hit the gym after dark for an intense workout with trainer JJ Dancer.

“Late night gym sessions with @iamjjdancer are NO JOKE,” she captioned a preview of her routine on Instagram. But the real action was captured in a workout video posted to YouTube, featuring the 37-year-old actress mastering barbell hip thrusts, hanging tuck ups, dumbbell rows, deadlifts and more.

Despite putting all of her energy into the exercises, Dewan couldn’t help but pull out a few dance moves to the music. After lunges, the dancer looks at the camera and does a body roll, and there is plenty of twerking from both Dewan and her trainer.

“I’m officially dead,” the sweaty star says afterward. “Thank you JJ Dancer for the late night workout. Mama’s gotta get it in!”

RELATED: Everything We Know About Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan’s Split

Dewan stepped out on Friday night to attend the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s fifth annual Hope and Heritage gala, where she received the organization’s 2018 research award during her first public appearance since PEOPLE exclusively confirmed on April 2 that the couple was separating.

She walked the red carpet in an eye-catching black Zuhair Murad gown featuring beaded floral appliqués and a feather-lined matching cape. She accessorized the look with purple earrings and a yellow floral and green ring.

“Thank you @stjude for this incredible honor!” Dewan wrote on Instagram later, captioning a photo of herself and the glass trophy. “I am so proud of everything you do and continue to do for children.”

In a statement to PEOPLE on April 2, Dewan and Tatum, 38, announced they were going their separate ways.

We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the pair said, later sharing the same statement on their Twitter and Instagram pages. “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.”

The former couple first met on the set of their 2006 movie Step Up and tied the knot in 2009. Both share daughter Everly, who will turn 5 in May.

RELATED VIDEO: Jenna Dewan Steps Out for First Red Carpet Appearance After Channing Tatum Split

Since jointly announcing their plan to separate, Dewan has been spotted attending workout classes and returning to work on her upcoming project Mixtape.

She’s also slowly returned to social media, even removing her married last name from her accounts. Last week, she updated Instagram with her first post since the separation. “Thank you guys for all your love. Love you right back,” she wrote alongside a beach snap.

A source close to both Dewan and Tatum told PEOPLE on Monday that he was having a tough time adjusting to their separation.

“He always had Jenna and their family to go home to, so having their separation be ‘official’ now has been a big adjustment to for him,” the insider said.

A second source told PEOPLE, “Jenna has a super-packed schedule and a ton of girlfriends to lean on and spend time with. Her life isn’t really changing… if anything, she’s just busier.”

Hank Azaria ‘Willing to Step Aside’ from Voicing Indian Simpsons Character Apu Amid Controversy

Hank Azaria has outlined what he thinks is “the right thing to do” amid controversy over his Simpsons character Apu.

Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, the actor responded to the recent backlash surrounding Indian shopkeeper Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, who has been a character on the Fox television series since 1990.

Controversy has surrounded the character since the release of a documentary last year called The Problem with Apu, in which writer Hari Kondabolu argued the character perpetuates racial stereotypes through mannerisms and an exaggerated accent.

Azaria, 54, told Colbert, 53, that he understands the criticism.

“It’s come to my attention more and more, especially in the last couple of years, that people in the South Asian community in this country have been fairly upset by the voice and characterization of Apu,” he said.

“It sparked a lot of conversation about what should be done with the character going forward, which is not so easy to answer,” he continued. “And I’ve tried to express this before — the idea that anybody, young or old, past or present, was bullied or teased based on the character of Apu, it just really makes me sad. It was certainly not my intention. I wanted to spread laughter and joy with this character, and the idea that it’s brought pain and suffering in any way, that it was used to marginalize people, it’s upsetting. Genuinely.”

The Simpsons addressed the controversy in an episode earlier this month with a scene of Marge reading a favorite childhood book with daughter Lisa. However, she suddenly found the story about a tyrannical slaveowner much more racist than she remembered and tried to edit it to fit modern standards of political correctness.

“Well, what am I supposed to do?” Marge asked.

“It’s hard to say. Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?” Lisa responded, looking directly at the camera before the shot zoomed in on a photo of Apu with the message “Don’t have a cow.”

“Some things will be dealt with at a later date,” Marge said before Lisa added, “If at all.”

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

The response drew even more criticism as many fans thought the scene fell flat. Azaria told Colbert he had “nothing to do with the writing or voicing” of the scene.

“Apu doesn’t speak in that segment,” he said. “It was a late addition that I saw right around the same time that everybody else in America did, so I didn’t know it was going to be in until I saw it.”

“I think that if anybody came away from that segment feeling that they should lighten up or take a joke better or grow a thicker skin … that’s certainly not the way I feel about it,” he continued. “That’s definitely not the message that I want to send out.”

Colbert pushed the actor for his thoughts on how the show should approach Apu moving forward.

“I’ve given this a lot of thought. As I say, my eyes have been opened,” Azaria said. “And I think the most important thing is we have to listen to South Asian people, Indian people in this country, when they talk about what they feel and how they think about this character — and what their American experience of it has been.”

“Listening to voices in television means inclusion in the writer’s room,” he continued. “I really want to see Indian, South Asian writers in the room, not in a token way, but genuinely informing whatever new direction this character may take, including how it is voiced or not voiced. I am perfectly willing and happy to step aside or help transition it into something new. I really hope that’s what The Simpsons does. It not only makes sense, but it just feels like the right thing to do to me.”

Bill Belichick won’t like reason Tom Brady is staying away from Patriots

Little by little, it adds up. A day of missing a team workout program is becoming a more prolonged absence. The time away is being spent with a foe of the team. Another star contemplates retirement, and won’t come near the team in the meantime, as long as it’s not mandatory. And within the rigid, tightly monitored system that Bill Belichick lords over, the cracks appear. The drama, as it always seems around the Patriots, resides in subtlety. The latest passive-aggression is a report out of ESPN that Tom Brady will not be a “regular participant” in the team’s offseason program, even after he returns from his trip to Qatar. The trip, for his charity, was his reason for missing the start of the

Pink Postpones Another Concert as She Continues to Recover From the Flu: ‘I’m Very Sorry’

Pink has bowed out of another concert due to the flu.

The day before her show in Detroit, Michigan, on Sunday, the singer, 38, made the announcement that she has been forced to postpone the Beautiful Trauma tour performance. “I’m not going to be well enough to do the show tomorrow night in Detroit,” Pink told fans and followers in an announcement shared on Twitter Saturday.

“I want to give you all the full show and not be hacking all the way through it and have to cut songs because of my voice,” the mother of two continued, adding that she had consulted with her doctor.

“I understand how much trouble you go to to be at my shows, what it entails, the planning, the schedules, etc. I am very very sorry, and I’m very grateful for your understanding. I will absolutely do this show at a later date, and it will be the full show. Again, I’m very sorry and have tried so damn hard to avoid this. All my love,” Pink concluded her message.

The star previously announced she had to postpone the Montreal show on Friday due to the flu.

“Our entire family has been battling this awful virus/flu for two weeks now, and I have battled my way through these shows because postponing sucks,” Pink tweeted about her first cancellation of the concert series that began in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 1.

“Carey’s been home with flu while me and the kids battle this virus,” she added about her husband Carey Hart and the couple’s children: 6-year-old daughter Willow Sage and 14-month-old son Jameson Moon.

The last time, Pink battled the flu was in February at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis when she sang the national anthem before the NFL championship game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Despite getting sick, she still brought the crowd to its feet with her rendition of the tune and was praised by fans on social media, even being dubbed the “real MVP” of Super Bowl LII.

The next stop on Pink’s tour is the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky, on March 27.
