Halston IS based a real life events, and is in fact about the late fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick, known simply as Halston.

He was the most celebrated US designer throughout the 60s and 80s with celebrity pals including Liza Minelli and Liz Taylor.

But Halston’s glittering fashion career ended in tragedy after his extravagant spending and cocaine addiction saw him lose his business in the years before he died of Aids, in 1990.

Halston became the darling of American fashion after designing the pillbox hat first lady Jackie Kennedy wore at John F. Kennedy’s 1961 inauguration.

A regular at legendary New Yor club Studio 54 - where guests had sex on mattresses in the basement - Halston was also responsible for putting Bianca Jagger on a white horse to ride into the club.

He was known for his extravagance, spending £110,000 a year on orchids, and doling out cocaine to dinner party guests as “dessert”.

But he lost the right to design under his own name in 1984 and had just two loyal clients when he died at the age of 57.

Bernie Sanders Says He’ll Let Breyer ‘Make His Own Decision’ on Retirement: ‘I’m Not Going to Tell Him What to Do’

Some Democrats have been publicly pushing for Justice Stephen Breyer to retire from the Supreme Court so that President Joe Biden can select a successor soon. Some congressmembers like Mondaire Jones and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have joined those calls.

Senator Bernie Sanders is publicly not saying the same right now.

Chuck Todd asked Sanders about some progressive groups calling on Breyer to retire, and asked, “Do you think this pressure campaign is appropriate and would you like to see him retire now?”

“I will let the judge make his own decision,” Sanders said. “I’m not going to tell him what to do.”

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D- RI) recently said that “now would be the right time” for Breyer to retire, given what Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said about blocking any Biden nominee if Republicans re-take the Senate. Whitehouse did add, “I don’t know that senators trying to tell you what to do makes that decision easier rather than harder.”

You can watch Sanders’ comments above, via NBC.
