When I first saw Pharrell’s outrageously large hat on the E! Red Carpet, I wanted to snatch it off his head, set fire to it, and slap Pharrell for this egregious error in fashion.
As the night went on, it became clear that Pharrell’s hat was the best thing to happen at a considerably lackluster Grammy ceremony.
I mean, seriously, it was such an absurd hat, that no one else could pull off with same panache as him. It quickly ruled the social media conversation, with people comparing to everything from Smokey The Bear to the Arby’s hat logo. let me just put it like this: you know you’re winning when the Twitter handle for Arby’s has to respond:
Congrats to Pharrell for not only winning a boatload of Grammys, but for also winning the Internet with your stupid ass hat.
Praise aside, I do demand that any Best Dressed Man accolades awarded to Pharrell be stripped of him immediately, because he did look like a stinking hot mess.
This week, Jezebel offered $10,000 for the un-retouched photos from Lena Dunham’s Vogue photo shoot. Apparently, somebody just got a nice check in the mail, because the photos were published on the website this morning (in GIF form, no less), with annotations marking what exact edits were made to the photos.
I get that there has been this big stink about Lena Dunham’s looks ever since she burst onto the scene with Girls (shameless plug: I just wrote a post about my shameful love of that show on my other blog When Things Go Pop!), from her tattoos to all of the nudity on her show. At the end of the day, it’s quite obvious to everyone that Lena Dunham is not a supermodel, nor does she even try to pass herself off as one. However, when she tries, she can actually pull off a glamorous look. Even though it could’ve been a different color, I liked her dress at the Golden Globes last weekend. And her Vogue pictures are really good.
So why would anyone go through the trouble of trying to prove that she is a physical mess?
I would be supremely insulted if someone actually paid money to get unretouched photos of myself, in an effort to prove that the magazine needed to edit me. Newsflash: everyone is Photoshopped to look their best. It’s really not that big of a deal. And in the specific case of Lena Dunham, everyone knows who Lena Dunham is and what she looks like, so it’s not like Vogue was trying to hide anything.
Lena Dunham looked great in Vogue; let her live!
In case you might have missed it, Lupita Nyong’o has everyone talking about her absolutely stunning Golden Globes dress. The 12 Years a Slave actress is wearing Ralph Lauren and killing everyone. Here are some GIFs to commemorate her crowning as a style icon:
Have you ever heard the phrase “die for fashion”?
Well apparently these normally sane people live by it. Top fashion designer Alexander Wang drove people absolutely insane over a free giveaway event he held in NYC last month. We are just seeing the results of the mass hysteria, and I have to say, they are terrifyingly hilarious.
Here some of the GIFable moments, thanks to BuzzFeed:
Yes, this actually happened.
Yes, people are actually almost killing each other for clothes by Alexander Wang.
Free Alexander Wang.
Now I love myself a good fashion deal (I just dropped $50 online at Macy’s this morning, mind you), but this is absolutely ridiculous.
Proceed to get all of your life for today, tomorrow, and even next Monday. I promise to do my part by reposting these GIFs at every possible opportunity.
Especially this one:
