Guests included “Game of Thrones” co-stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.

Harington wore a morning suit and Leslie donned an ivory gown and veil.

The newlyweds were showered with rose petal confetti as they left the church and drove off in a Land Rover festooned with “Just Married” signs to a reception on the castle grounds.

Harington and Leslie, who are both 31, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO fantasy series, where they played a couple as the characters Jon Snow and Ygritte. 

Leslie left the cast in 2014 and currently stars in the legal drama “The Good Fight” on CBS.

The bride's father, Sebastian Leslie, said Saturday he was “absolutely thrilled” about the wedding.

“It's an absolutely lovely day for us,” he said.

Teen actress wears 'I do care' jacket to protest first lady

Teen actress Jenna Ortega cares, and says Melania Trump should do the same.

Ortega wore a green, hooded military jacket reading "I do care and u should too" on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards Friday night, countering the "I really don't care, do u?" jacket the first lady wore as she left Washington to visit detained migrant children this week.

The 15-year-old, whose credits include "Jane the Virgin" and "Iron Man 3," told The Associated Press Trump's jacket showed poor judgment, and she couldn't believe her advisers allowed her to wear it. Ortega says she cares about migrant children, "and as first lady of the United States, she should too."

Ortega says she had the jacket made the night before especially for the awards show.

Anthony Bourdain’s mother plans to get memorial tattoo

Anthony Bourdain’s mother revealed that while she was “never really a fan” of her son’s tattoos, she plans to get one in his memory.

Gladys Bourdain told the New York Times that she plans to get “Tony” tattooed in small letters on the inside of her wrist some time next week, and use his tattoo artist.

The 61-year-old chef and host of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” was found dead on June 8 in a hotel room in France.

Investigators say he hanged himself.

On Friday, a prosecutor said Bourdain had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system. 

The famous chef had several tattoos, getting his first at 44.

Bourdain told Maxim in August 2017 that each tattoo marks a significant moment in his life.

“I don't overly place importance on them, but [tattoos] do commemorate in a way that photographs can't,” Bourdain said. “I stopped taking photographs a long time ago when I travel. There's this realization that the lens is inadequate to capture the moment, so maybe I'm just looking to mark time in another way that's very personal.”

Gladys Bourdain said that a private ceremony will be held soon, adding, “He would want as little fuss as possible.”

A Bourdain family spokesperson told the BBC the family has no plans for a public memorial at this time.

Stars flock to the Dior debut of Kim Jones at Paris menswear

In a week marked by big debuts, it was designer Kim Jones' turn at Dior Men on Saturday.

The British designer drew stars from the worlds of film, music and fashion to Paris for his first collection at the storied powerhouse.

Stars such as Bella Hadid, Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Robert Pattinson, Kelly Osbourne and Gwendoline Christie all marveled as the entered the historic courtyard venue in which a 20-meter (66-foot) avatar sculpture of Christian Dior made of flowers towered over guests.

Here are some highlights from Saturday's runway shows.

KIM JONES' DEBUT AT DIOR

British designer Kim Jones dug deep into the Dior women's archives to produce a softer-than-usual collection for men, which retained the house's signature edginess.

Gentle pastel colors fused with flashes of cobalt blue, yellow and florals for the display that moved the Dior aesthetic in a gentler direction than that of Jones' predecessor, Kris Van Assche, who looked on from the front row.

"Translating a quintessentially feminine couture identity into a masculine idiom results in clothes which are softer, with rounded shoulders and eased shapes," the house explained.

There was much artistry. The house's staple shirt was given a slashed cowl at the back, exposing the back — in a touch of cool. Floral motifs referenced Dior's love of flowers and a decorative landscape print cropped up in jacquards, embroideries and even in feathers. The program notes said it was a pattern used in the original 1947 boutique on Paris' Avenue Montaigne.

The Dior suits, in cashmere and summer mohair, were double breasted in reference to the diagonal shape of a women's Dior jacket from 1950. But to retain the edginess, the suits were worn against a naked torso on a model in sneakers.

It was a great touch that perfectly summed up Dior's sportswear-meets-couture style.

DIOR AS A FLOWER GIANT

The sweet scents from a giant flower figure — by artist Kaws and made of pink, green and black flowers — wafted in between Dior's celebrity guests.

The strange man — an avatar of Christian Dior clutching a perfume bottle in the shape of his dog Bobby — bowled over guests, including Kelly Osbourne.

"The set is actually incredible," said Osbourne, craning her neck.

The 33-year-old British singer, who joined model Natalia Vodianova on the front row, said she was attending the Paris debut to support her friend Jones, whose previous job was menswear chief at Louise Vuitton.

"As a proud Brit, it just goes to show how artistically talented we all are ... we're so proud of him," she said. "It might be the entire front row crying."

THOM BROWNE'S GARDEN WONDERLAND

Floating multicolored balloons, giant lollypops, garden gnomes, colored origami windmills and myriad blooms spilling from colored pots greeted guests at the Leftbank's Ecole des Beaux Arts.

To showcase his summer designs Saturday, Thom Browne transformed the chic Paris inner courtyard into a verdant garden wonderland.

It drew comparisons to Alice in Wonderland, Willy Wonka's factory and even Munchkinland as models with comic beards pretended to mow the lawn with metal contraptions or push a wheelbarrow full of flowers. One "gnome" model even climbed inside a tiny garden shed and stayed motionless the entire show.

Browne's dramatically oversized clothes continued the wacky, off-kilter vibe.

A sheeny sky blue coat with images of whales opened the show, introducing a beautifully random maritime theme that continued in lobsters and crabs.

Sloping-shoulder suit jackets, oversize coats, bags and billowing culottes were imagined in picnic blanket-style crisscross. For the 60 looks, it was stripes and check galore. A double breasted coat-jacket in gray had blown-up pinstripes with the dominant silhouette of a wide, flat front.

All of the designs were accessorized with a bowler hat with a flower in it, a colored tie and gargantuan striped platform shoes.

BROWNE SHOWS WINTER COATS FOR SUMMER AS SEASONS BLUR

Thom Browne's decision to include big, thick coats for his summer collection triggered a debate between two front-row fashion editors.

"Winter coats for summer?" asked one, puzzled.

"The seasons are almost the same in the industry now, anyway," answered the other, with some truth.

Progressively over the years, spring-summer and fall-winter fashion seasons have become increasingly blurred. Winter clothes such as big sweaters and big coats are no stranger to the summer catwalks. Often, summer shows are now distinguishable only for their brighter color palette and the occasional pair of shorts — and even that garment has been spotted in some winter shows.

Critics cite several reasons for the seasonal blur.

Summer collections are first available to buy during the winter months and the proliferation of social media means that more people see, and therefore want, to wear the clothes months earlier than in past decades.

Global warming has also been blamed for designers' desire to mix up their styles given that the seasons themselves are less predictable than before.

VIVID COLORS AT SACAI

A multicolored cube of giant speakers tied together with fluorescent yellow banding greeted guests at Sacai's warehouse show, suggesting that a quirky, avant-garde show was coming from one of Japan's top fashion houses.

That was not wrong.

Men's and women's designs merged in the diverse 57-piece show from Sacai, with geometric prints, checks and denim all mixing with silhouettes. Some coats or billowing skirts had exaggerated tapering proportions.

The one thing that created unity in this eccentric display was its vivid colors: purple, dark navy, bitter lemon, crimson and bronze. At times, the bright hues came on printed and patterned garments that evoked the ethnic styles of Latin America.

HERMES IS LUXURY

Veronique Nichanian showed exactly why she is one of the longest-serving fashion designers on the menswear calendar.

The French Hermes designer pulled off a highly saleable, color-sensitive and texture-rich display in Paris' chic Leftbank Saturday night.

Hermes is a byword for luxury; and Nichanian has been very instrumental in shaping this storied French house's menswear aesthetic.

Notably, her styles — as seen for spring-summer — demonstrate how men's clothes can be both elegant and colorful and retain full-throttle masculinity.

This isn't always the case on Paris' luxury runways.

Colors such as royal orange, Cetacean blue, lemon and burnt Sienna were tastefully combined in loose silhouettes sometimes capped with a relaxed-looking two-strap sandal.

A beautiful leather knee length Crayola yellow coat shimmered next to a matte open-neck vanilla colored sweater in a perfectly studied contrast.

Vinnie Paul, co-founder, drummer of Pantera, dies at 54

Vinnie Paul, co-founder and drummer of metal band Pantera, has died at 54.

Pantera's official Facebook page posted a statement early Saturday announcing his death. The label of Hellyeah, his most recent group, confirmed the death but neither statement mentioned Paul's cause of death.

His real name was Vincent Paul Abbott. He and his brother, Dimebag Darrell, formed Pantera in 1981. Dimebag, whose real name was Darrell Lance Abbott, was shot to death while on stage with the band Damageplan in 2004.

The two brothers founded Damageplan in 2003 after Pantera broke up.

Paul was most recently in the band Hellyeah, a heavy metal supergroup which included Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray and Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell.

"Today, the world not only lost a legend, but also a genuine human being who lived to put a smile on the faces of everyone he met," Hellyeah's label Eleven Seven Music said in a statement. "May he be reunited with his brother as we all strive to continue his legacy."

Alice Cooper tweeted Paul's impact on music was "immeasurable." Tributes poured in from others in the rock and metal communities, including Slash and the bands Disturbed and Megadeth.

'Game of Thrones' co-stars Kit Harington, Rose Leslie wed

Former "Game of Thrones" co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie married Saturday with a church service and a celebration at the bride's ancestral castle in Scotland.

The couple and guests arrived for the afternoon service at Rayne Church, close to the 900-year-old Wardhill Castle in northeast Scotland, which is owned by Leslie's family. Harington, wearing a morning suit, and Leslie, in a flowing ivory gown and veil, smiled at members of the public who had gathered outside the church.

Guests included the pair's "Game of Thrones" co-stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.

Later the newlyweds were showered with rose petal confetti as they left the church and drove off in a Land Rover festooned with "Just Married" signs to a reception on the castle grounds.

Harington and Leslie, who are both 31, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO fantasy series, where they played a couple as the characters Jon Snow and Ygritte. Leslie left the cast in 2014 and currently stars in U.S. legal drama "The Good Fight."

The couple announced their engagement with a notice in the Times of London newspaper in September.

The bride's father, Sebastian Leslie, said Saturday he was "absolutely thrilled" about the wedding.

"It's an absolutely lovely day for us," he said.

Netflix executive apologizes, resigns after using racial slurs

Netflix’s chief communications officer apologized and resigned after using a racial slur in front of colleagues on at least two occasions, CNN reported Friday.

Jonathan Friedland apologized on Twitter and said he was leaving the company after seven years.

"I feel awful about the distress this lapse caused to people at a company I love and where I want everyone to feel included and appreciated," Friedland tweeted.

Variety obtained a copy of a memo Netflix CEO Reed Hastings sent to employees to explain the situation. A copy was tweeted by The Hollywood Reporter.

The memo referenced an incident from several months ago when Friedland used a racial slur while meeting with Netflix public relations staff, CNN reported. The meeting was about sensitive words, and Friedland apologized afterward when people said his use of the word was inappropriate and hurtful.

He used the same slur a few days later in front of two black employees at Netflix’s human resources department while discussing the first incident, Hastings wrote in his memo.

"Many of us have worked closely with Jonathan for a long time, and have mixed emotions,” Hastings wrote. “Unfortunately, his lack of judgment in this area was too big for him to remain."

Friedland joined Netflix as vice president of communications in 2011 and assumed duties as chief communications officer the following year, Variety reported.

Netflix declined comment.
