The supermodel sent out a heart and the “10.18.2018” date with a wedding picture of the newlyweds Thursday on social media, confirming the deed had been done.

Lenny Letter, the feminist content site founded by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, is shutting down.
Subscribers were notified Friday that the site, which began as a newsletter in 2015, will close that day, confirming reports that emerged Thursday from Digiday and the New York Post. Staff and contributors were informed days before. Dunham, Konner and reps for Lenny Letter and Condé Nast have not yet responded to a request for comment.
“When we began plotting Lenny almost four years ago, we were casually referring to this venture as our cool older sister — someone who’s been there, done that, someone who’s learned from her successes and her failures,” read the final send to subscribers on Friday.
A questionable Elle magazine tweet that directed people to a voter-registration page when they thought they were getting dishy gossip on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West splitting up had members of the media and others talking Thursday afternoon.
Commentary on the tweet was mixed, technically — “This is brilliant,” said CNN political pundit Chris Cillizza — though it seemed to fall more heavily on the side of condemnation.
New York magazine and HuffPo writer Yashar Ali pointed out that a random tweeter had pulled the same stunt days earlier with the lure of news on Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s breakup.

In another sign of the increasing importance of TV content to film festivals, the AFI Fest announced Thursday that it will host the world premiere of the first episode of TNT’s “I Am the Night,” an upcoming limited series directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Chris Pine.
The “Wonder Woman” collaborators are switching gears for a noirish tale inspired by true events of unsolved crime, twisted secrets and Hollywood debauchery. The six-episode event will air on the cable network starting in January.
AFI Fest will also preview Jed Rothstein’s four-part Showtime documentary series “Enemies: The President, Justice & the FBI,” executive produced by Alex Gibney, which “examines the complex history of conflict between the FBI and U.S. presidents.”
“Halloween” producer Jason Blum is apologizing for off-target comments he made about his company’s failure to hire female directors for its signature horror genre — and his perception of their unavailability — in a recent magazine interview.
Blum seemed “jolted” when asked about Blumhouse Productions’ failure to hire any female directors since its creation in 2006, Polygon writer Matt Patches wrote in an article published Wednesday.
“We’re always trying to [do] that,” Blum said. “We’re not trying to do it because of recent events. We’ve always been trying.”
