Suffice it to say, “Blonde” costume designer Jennifer Johnson felt an enormous amount of pressure to get those dresses right for the Netflix film, streaming Wednesday. “Blonde” may be a fictionalized version of her story, but the costumes are ripped from reality. The vast majority of the frocks Ana de Armas wears in the film, from the white pleated “Seven Year Itch” number to the pink “Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend” gown, are recreations that Johnson and her team had to make without the actual reference garment on hand.

As sports betting has swept across the country, internet casino games have grown much more slowly. But the online casino market has tremendous potential for growth and expansion, according to participants in a major casino conference. Speaking Friday at the East Coast Gaming Congress in Atlantic City, executives of online gambling companies said the rapid growth of sports betting provides a ready-made infrastructure and regulatory apparatus for online casino games.

The National Press and Publication Administration, which issues licenses for video games, on Tuesday published a list of approvals for 73 online games, including a mobile game by NetEase called “All-Star Street Ball Party.” In August 2021, regulators stopped issuing gaming licenses as they tightened restrictions on the tech industry. They resumed approvals in April. Tencent, the country’s biggest gaming company, has not gotten any games approved since then.
