Monday Catch-Up - 20/02/2017

London Week might have dominated social feeds, but across the weekend there was a lot of goings on away from the catwalk collections.

It's been widely reported that Ivanka Trump's clothing line has been dropped by a handful of American stores (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and T.J. Maxx), but on Amazon lies a different story: her perfume is currently the best selling, reports The Cut. The reviews on the item which retails for $36 are telling as to why the scent has suddenly become a best seller. "I have purchased and will continue to purchase Ivanka Trump items... The perk of this scent is that it’s a liberal repellent as well!", wrote one user. While another posted: "Does this perfume contain any trace of the exquisite scent of liberal tears? Thanks!"

On Sunday, photographs from the scene of the robbery of Kim Kardashian West were released on French media. TFI broadcast the images, which are reportedly from the crime scene during a segment of their news bulletin. Since the robbery - which included the loss of a $4million ring - on October 3, Kardashian West has kept a low public profile. Read more on the charges here.

Oscar nominee Michelle Williams revealed this weekend that she hadn't always set her sights on an acting career. "I wanted to be a boxer," Williams told The Sunday Times Magazine. "I think that was kind of sad, because, at the time, I didn’t distinguish between sexes and weight categories. I was going to go out there and fight Mike Tyson. I was a big fan of his growing up and I wanted to be against someone really tough."

Sunday night drama continued to keep up momentum with the BBC's latest: SS-GB. Starring Kate Bosworth and Sam Riley and penned by James Bond screenwriters, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the series delivers an alternate reality where Britain is living under Nazi rule in 1941. The Telegraph gave the first episode a four star review, describing it as a nightmare "more timely than ever", while The Guardian did find the plot "satisfyingly mystifying," the reviewer also encountered the programme's sexual politics "annoyingly predictable".
