Wow. 💙 “Sesame Street” is taking another stride in helping kids navigate difficult situations. According to The Atlantic, the #sesamestreet in Communities program introduced a #muppet character who is in foster care. The initiative features a series of videos addressing questions and concerns about foster care. It also offers an interactive storybook and printable activities. The new “Sesame Street” character, Karli, lives with her foster parents Clem and Dalia, who are helping her deal with the “ups and downs” (as Dalia puts it) of being separated from her birth parents. In one video, above, Elmo’s dad Louie (yes, Elmo’s had an onscreen dad since 2006), asks Clem and Dalia: “How has everything been going, since becoming her foster parents?” In a refreshing response, Clem admits, “Changes like this can be really rough for kids. And for adults, too.” In another video, below, Karli shows her pal Elmo that Dalia taught her that “even when our hears feel sad and small, they can still grow. The more love they get, the more they grow.” For the moment, scenes with Karli will only be available online, and it is unclear if she will be included on the iconic children’s TV show. // 📸: PBS

”I want to make one thing clear: I am not the type of person who hates shopping for clothes... That’s why it may seem a bit out of character that I — a woman so devoted to the act of shopping that I prefer to shop alone rather than have anyone slow me down — would pay someone to shop for me. Yet here I am, six months into my Stitch Fix membership, fully obsessed.” - @coralinemaria 👗Click the link in our bio to learn how @stitchfix helped this writer ditch her fast-fashion obsession for good. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #stitchfix #clothingsubscription #personalstyling #shopping #shoppingaddict #style #denimskirt #leopardskirt #madewell #fallstyle #springstyle #weekendstyle #workstyle⠀

This is so important. 🙌 Presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker penned an open letter to men in GQ magazine on Friday, imploring them “to listen, to speak out, and to take action” in the wake of recent legislature around the country impeding women’s access to abortion. The New Jersey Democrat addressed the draconian Alabama abortion law passed this week that bans the procedure in almost every case. Booker said that men need to understand these “types of bills were designed to control, dehumanize, and criminalize.” // 📷: AP Images

Michelle Obama wrapped up her “Becoming” book tour with a final dazzling stop in Nashville, Tennessee, alongside “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. The former first lady shone in a shiny metallic suit by Christopher John Rogers, her stylist, Meredith Koop, confirmed to HuffPost, just two days after wowing crowds in Atlanta in a purple suit and custom black bustier. The Atlanta and Nashville outfits continued Obama’s “power suiting” trend that’s included nearly every style, color and eye-catching accessory over the past few months ― from pink crystals to plaid stripes and everything in between. The metallic look, paired with heels by Gianvito Rossi, was the perfectly suited sendoff for the author. Colbert reminded Obama this was a major moment, considering that the Nashville audience was missing “Game of Thrones.” Back in Atlanta, the former first lady appeared in a stunning purple silk suit from Sergio Hudson’s Fall 2019 collection, Koop confirmed by email. “What [an] honor for our Forever First Lady @michelleobama to wear a custom suit from our Fall 2019 collection,” the designer said on Instagram, later clarifying in a separate post that the color was “eggplant.” That night, Obama also wore a custom black sequined bustier by Christy Rilling Studio (Rilling has been her tailor since 2009) and towering black stilettos, again from Gianvito Rossi. // 📸: Getty Images

So true! ❤️ David Beckham was just shy of 24 years old when he welcomed his first child, and in the two decades since, he’s learned a few lessons about parenthood. The retired soccer star and his wife, Victoria Beckham, have four children ― Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. "One minute you’re holding them in hospital for the first time and then, the next minute, they’re driving their car," he said. "But it’s the most special thing, I would never change anything.” // 📷: Getty Images

So important! 💖 Hijab-wearing model Halima Aden is the role model fashion needs. Following her history-making turn as the first Miss Minnesota contestant to compete in a burkini and hijab, the 21-year-old has gone on to grace the pages of magazines and walk runways, shattering stereotypes and serving as an inspiration to people who had previously not seen themselves represented in fashion and media. Aden spoke with HuffPost about the message she wants to send to young people who look up to her: "I’m just excited to share my story with our future leaders.... People are trying to have models not just be a face but also have a message, a cause they are passionate about." // 📷: Getty Images
