Selena Gomez’s ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Looks are my Fall Fashion Goals



Hulu‘s Only Murders in the Building is a surprisingly cozy treat. The satiric send-up of true crime podcasts is full of the chipper puzzles that have made Agatha Christie books, shows, and movies popular for well over a century. It unites Steve Martin and Martin Short, features oodles of celebrity cameos, and major apartment porn. However, my favorite part of watching Only Murders in the Building might have been lusting after each and every outfit Selena Gomez‘s Mabel wears. Selena Gomez’s Only Murders wardrobe is full of playful tweed, cozy sweaters, miniskirts, and hoop earrings. In short, Gomez’s looks are my Fall 2021 fashion goals.

Only Murders in the Building takes place in the fictional Upper West Side apartment building The Arconia. There, three very different neighbors — Steve Martin’s Charles, Martin Short’s Oliver, and Selena Gomez’s Mabel — discover themselves on an elevator with one Tim Kono (Julian Cihi), an unlikable resident fated to die within the hour. When true crime nuts Charles, Oliver, and Mabel realize that Tim Kono’s death was a murder, they decide to team up to make their own podcast. What Charles and Oliver don’t know is that Mabel is hiding a secret connection to Tim Kono. What is obvious about Mabel, though, is she looks great.

Mabel stands out from the moment she struts on screen thanks to a bright yellow sweater paired with a golden fluffy coat and tweed pants. It’s a bold mix of colors and patterns, some distinctly modern and others more classic. Interestingly, this is as avant garde as Mabel’s wardrobe gets. Here we’re meant to see her only as the image-focused millennial of the bunch. In fact, Mabel is way more than just her appearance. She is smart, loyal, brave, and heartbroken. It’s these character traits that come to the forefront as Only Murders in the Building continues and they are soon reflected in her fashion.

Mabel might sport a very on-trend jumpsuit in Episode 1 of Only Murders in the Building, but her subsequent looks are full of comfy knitwear and classic silhouettes. She pairs a simple khaki miniskirt with a black turtleneck sweater, boots, and tights. A tomato red sweater is balanced by on-trend jeans. Her makeup? Natural. Her hair? Usually down in full waves. Jewelry? Typically understated gold chains and casual hoop earrings. Footwear? Boots. Comfortable boots, always.

To put it simply, Mabel’s costumes are a New Yorker’s ideal fall/winter wardrobe. She wears statement jackets and warm knits, sophisticated (not showy) accessories, and the occasional pop of color to look like a star. But there is an evolution to her look. The closer she gets to Charles and Oliver, and the more we learn about her past, the further she gets from contemporary trends. Instead, her clothing becomes all the more simple, all the more comfy, and all the more classic.

While watching Only Murders in the Building, I found it next to impossible to not feverishly look online for similar staples to what Mabel wears (or even skirt and trouser patterns to attempt to sew!). Selena Gomez’s whole vibe in Only Murders in the Building is the energy I want to exude this autumn and winter. Sadly, as I’m not Selena Gomez, it remains to be seen if I can pull it off…

Knicks’ Obi Toppin seeing his minutes decrease



Mitchell Robinson already had fouled out when Taj Gibson also was assessed his sixth foul with three minutes remaining Tuesday night at the Garden.

Almost immediately, the home crowd began loudly chanting Obi Toppin’s first name.

Boos quickly rained down, however, when Tom Thibodeau instead called for Alec Burks to come off the bench, essentially choosing to employ a lineup of four guards and wing players — Burks, Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier and RJ Barrett — around power forward Julius Randle.

Such has been the slide back to the periphery in recent games for Toppin since he logged a career-high 45 minutes — and matched a season-best with 19 points — with Randle out of the lineup on Jan. 2 in Toronto.

The 2020 lottery pick has averaged just 11.3 minutes over his past eight appearances, including just nine in Thursday’s late-developing loss to the Timberwolves.

The hometown crowd had erupted when Toppin snared an offense rebound of Barrett’s missed 3-point attempt for a put-back bucket in the second quarter. The second-year forward also sank two free throws in seven minutes before halftime, but those marked his only four points for the game.

The Brooklyn native’s stint in the second half was even shorter, playing only the first 1:53 of the fourth quarter before Randle came back following a brief rest.

The 23-year-old Toppin didn’t get off the bench thereafter, with Thibodeau opting to have Burks on the court in the closing minutes instead of Toppin or another big body, such as rookie center Jericho Sims.

Thibodeau’s small-ball alignment didn’t work at either end of the floor down the stretch of the giveaway loss, with Randle fouling Minnesota big man Karl-Anthony Towns for a go-ahead drive and free-throw conversion with 29.3 seconds remaining.

“Julius stepped in and played center, so next guy in, get the job done,” Thibodeau said after the game. “It’s a hard-fought game. We didn’t get it done down the stretch.”

Indeed, the Knicks also didn’t connect on any field-goal attempts over the final 3:41 while committing three turnovers — two by Barrett and one by Fournier — in the final two minutes. Randle also missed one of two free throws with a chance to tie the score five seconds after Towns’ go-ahead score.

“Well, I think a big part of our turnovers late was because we had four guards, and so we had either myself, RJ or [Burks] playing the 4, which we never do,” Fournier said. “So when you’re playing against a team that’s aggressive, that’s basically when you need space the most.

“You can just go pass-pass and take advantage of that, but when you’re supposed to play at a position that you never did, it can be a little tricky.”

Randle wasn’t made available to the media after the game, a more regular occurrence since he was fined for directing a thumbs-down and “shut the f–k up” explanation at the Garden fans on Jan. 6. The Knicks (22-23) also held no practice nor media availability on Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s home game against the Pelicans.

Thibodeau noted Tuesday night that the players need to understand that the game often is played and officiated differently down the stretch of close games and that they needed to take better care of the ball during the sloppy final minutes of their second straight loss at the Garden.

“Coach is right. We have to do a better job with the ball,” Fournier added. “It’s too important. We have to get a good shot and our execution could have been better down the stretch, 100 percent.”

‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ star Jennie Nguyen apologizes for social media posts



Well, that didn’t take long.

“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jennie Nguyen has apologized for the controversial social media posts she caught heat for on Wednesday.

“I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today,” Nguyen wrote via Instagram. “At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were.”

“It’s why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own. I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused.”

(When Page Six visited the account Nguyen had posted from earlier Wednesday, it had not been deactivated.)

Nguyen allegedly posted and reposted images throughout 2020 at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement, using phrases like “BLM Thugs” and “Violent Gangs.”

Material posted by the Vietnamese-American Nguyen also included mentions of “blacks” and a debunked theory about George Floyd assaulting a student in Spain.

Another cartoon appeared to make light of the rash of protesters who were rammed by cars during the protests, a figure the Boston Globe found at least 139 instances of between May 2020 and Sept. 30, 2021 — three of which were fatal.

Fans pointed out that the discovery of the posts was especially galling in light of a recent “RHOSLC” moment in which Nguyen accused co-star Mary M. Cosby of being racist after Cosby told her that she has “nice slanted eyes.”

Neither Bravo nor Nguyen’s reps responded to Page Six’s request for comment,

Cuomo crony Malatras bags $450K SUNY ‘leave,’ $186K tenured post after resignation



ALBANY – James Malatras, the pressured-to-resign State University chancellor, is being paid $450,000 for his recently started year-long “study leave” — and next year he’ll get a six-figure tenured SUNY faculty position, his approved exit contract reveals.

The SUNY Board of Trustees officially greenlit Malatras’ employment contract, a copy of which was obtained by The Post, three days ago, on Jan. 16 – meaning he’s already started his $450,000 paid leave.

Once the year is up, he’ll assume a tenured faculty position at SUNY Empire College – where he used to be president – and he’ll be paid a $186,660 annual salary.

Malatras resigned following intense pressure from SUNY faculty, students, state lawmakers and even Gov. Kathy Hochul for smearing one of disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment accusers, Lindsey Boylan. 

The former SUNY executive served as a top confidante to Cuomo during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and was his director of state operations.

His resignation as SUNY chancellor was effective on Friday, Jan. 14, per the document.

“After a thorough review by outside counsel, the SUNY Board of Trustees have resolved and fulfilled its contractual obligations to former Chancellor Dr. Jim Malatras. Consistent with his initial contract, Dr. Malatras will be provided one-year study leave followed by a tenured faculty position at Empire State College.  We believe this resolution is fair and equitable,” SUNY spokesman Leo Rosales told The Post in a statement. 

Malatras has also agreed not to sue “with respect to any matter related to SUNY,” according to the contract.

SUNY hired outside lawyers to review the agreement, for roughly a month — since Malatras announced plans to step down on Dec. 9.

“SUNY thought it was important to obtain independent legal advice before reaching any agreement,” said a SUNY spokesperson, who declined to name the law firm.

Malatras slammed Boylan over a workplace issue dispute in May 2019 — 18 months before Boylan accused Cuomo of harassment, according to interview transcripts released by state Attorney General Letitia James’ office as part of her bombshell Aug. 3, 2021 sexual harassment report into Cuomo.

In one text to Cuomo staffers, Malatras wrote: “Malatras to Boylan: Go f–k yourself.”

“Let’s release some of her cray emails!” he said in another text.

Malatras rushed to the defense of Cuomo, under whom he served as a top confidant and the director of state operations.

SUNY Board Chair Merryl Tisch remained a supporter of Malatras until the end, praising his tenure since he started on Aug. 31, 2020.

He served just over a year of his five year appointment.

SUNY hastily approved SUNY Oswego President Deborah Stanley to replace Jim Malatras as interim chancellor on Dec. 20 – causing the longtime educator to stall her retirement plans slated for Dec. 31, 2021.
