Actress Rachel Brosnahan remembered her aunt Kate Spade as “effervescent” on Wednesday, one day after the 55-year-old fashion designer was found dead in her New York City apartment.
The fashion brand Spade founded, Kate Spade New York, confirmed in a statement Tuesday that the iconic designer died.
“Knowing Katy, this is how she would want to be remembered,” Brosnahan wrote Wednesday in a post on Instagram. The Golden Globe-winning actress shared a short video of Kate Spade smiling up at her husband, Andy Spade, as the couple danced to mariachi music.
“She had a light that words can’t capture but touched everyone she came into contact with,” Brosnahan wrote. “She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, funny as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known.”
Police told The Associated Press that a housekeeper found Kate Spade dead Tuesday morning of an apparent suicide.
“She was effervescent,” Brosnahan wrote. “Hug your loved ones extra tight today.”
Kate Spade is survived by her husband and their 13-year-old daughter.

When it comes to hair, Beyoncé has done it all, but now, she’s bringing back a classic look.
Fans have seen her in everything from the long ponytail she sported at Serena Williams’ wedding to the signature cornrows she had on the album cover of “Lemonade.” In her latest hair debut, Queen Bey is bringing back a fan favorite — the affectionately known “mom” haircut. The chic look — a short, chin length wavy bob in golden blonde — re-emerged in a series of photos on her website. The look first appeared soon after the Grammy winner wrapped up her self-titled album’s world tour.
The pop star’s hair stylist recently revealed her natural hair look a few weeks back, sending fans into a frenzy. A dismayed Neal Farinah, however, found himself calling out people who couldn’t believe the singer’s flowing tresses were real.
“Sometimes women make choices, and black women are not the only ones who wear wigs, weaves and pieces. Remember that!” he said in an Instagram video.
“And underneath wigs and weaves? Black women have some of the most beautiful, curly hair. It’s a choice a woman makes — and that’s the choice a black woman makes to wear wigs or weaves. If she wants to, ain’t nothing wrong with it!” he added.
“So, the myth about Black women not having hair … y’all think again 'cause they have some of the most beautiful textured hair. Recognize!”
"Calling all faces!" the ad reads. "We are excited to announce an open model casting call in the LA area for several upcoming KKW beauty campaigns."
The ad continues: "The call is open to all women 18+."
But the tweet didn't fly with everyone. In a now-deleted tweet, beauty blogger James Charles wrote: "Sister @KimKardashian! There are thousands of boys in cosmetics who love you & I'm sure would be honored to slay a photo shoot for you! This is disappointing."
He added that Kardashian West "is a legend" and one of his "role models."
Others made similar comments. Check out some of them below:
Still wearing flip-flops even as temperatures take a dive? Apparently, you're not alone.
According to WTVT, a new trend is sweeping online stores – flip-flop socks.
Etsy seller Sophia Vernava of Sew Darn Comfy said her handmade version of the socks, which leave the heel and toes exposed, are flying off the virtual shelves.
"I can't keep them in my shop. I list them, and in a few days they are snatched up," she told WTVT, adding that the socks are popular with dancers and people who do yoga and Pilates.
As the holiday season approaches and people prepare for Christmas lists and gift-giving, a new hat has become available for Trump supporters.
The president’s website recently debuted a “Make America Great Again” hat that shows the iconic words draped in a string of Christmas lights.
The hat debuted in mid-November, when the official GOP Twitter account showed a brief video of it.
On the GOP website, President Donald Trump’s original “Make America Great Again” hats are being sold for $25. The new Christmas-themed hat, which says “Merry Christmas” on the back, is being sold for $45.
On Black Friday, the president posted a link to his products on his Facebook page with the caption “We’ve got a great deal for our supporters this Black Friday!”
In regard to how the slogan came to be, Trump told The Washington Post that the phrase came to him the day that Barack Obama beat Mitt Romney in the general election on Nov. 7, 2012. Trump said he was sitting in his Manhattan tower when the idea came to his mind, and five days later, a trademark was pending.
Democrats initially slammed his slogan, but pundits saw the ring to it. Some pointed out that “Make America Great Again” had been used before; Reagan used it in 1980 on his campaign trail. But Trump owned the four words, and when other candidates began using the phrase in their speeches, Trump’s lawyers sent off cease-and-desist letters.
Trump’s iconic red hat has changed over time; after he won the election, he released a hat with the letters “USA” embroidered on the front in white.
While he might own the rights to those words, that hasn’t stopped other brands from selling fake versions of Trump’s famous caps. A search on Google Shopping for “Make America Great Again hat” yields hundreds of products, most of them boasting price tags much lower than Trump’s official hat on the GOP website.
The “Project Runway” first season contestant “died peacefully" Nov. 12 while "surrounded by her loving family," according to her obituary. The news comes just one month after the death of fellow contestant Mychael Knight, who appeared on Season 3 of the fashion competition series, at age 39. In addition to Pepper coming in third place on the series, she “designed and hand-sewed exceptionally beautiful clothes for children and adults," her obituary said.
“We are saddened to hear of the passing of another member of the 'Project Runway' family, designer Wendy Pepper, this year,” a spokesperson for Lifetime, which began airing “Project Runway” after the show left Bravo, said on Friday. “Wendy was one of the original designers that sent creations down the catwalk, paving the way for other designers to come. We wish her family and friends peace during this difficult time.”
“She was an artist who proudly forged her own path in life,” her family wrote of her in her obituary. “She was a chef, a writer and a lifelong entrepreneur. Her wit and humor were unmatched, as was her generosity of spirit.”
Pepper, of Washington, D.C., is survived by her daughter, Finley M. Stewart, as well as her parents, three brothers, one sister and many nieces and nephews. Her cause of death is currently unclear. A funeral service will be held for her on Dec. 1 in Georgetown.
Following her passing, many fans took to social media to share their condolences, with one appearing to quote “Project Runway,” writing, “If you really want to succeed, you’ve gotta be willing to throw yourself into the arena. #wendypepper you will be remembered for being a talented designer and a witty and humorous lady and mother.”
