Why Did You Wear That: F*ck It. We’re Done with Pants.

celebrity sheer dressesCelebrities just can’t seem to keep their pants on and this time it doesn’t involve hacked photos, the  iCloud, or Miley Cyrus.  This past week alone, a slew of celebrities have forgone covering up their bits and pieces by wearing barely there ensembles leaving very little to the imagination.  From Miranda Kerr to Cara Delevigne, sheer panels gave us peeks at their toned thighs, tummies, and places Pilates pays off.  Even North West got in on the action while accompanying mom, Kim, to the Givenchy show in Paris.  Why shouldn’t a toddler have a custom creation when sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week?  Step your game up Gymboree.  This nearly nude trend is nothing new though, as we saw here on Erin Fetherston two Octobers ago.

F*ck it.

Red Carpet Recap: MTV BMA’s

mtv vmas miley cyrus jesse beyonce blue ivyLast night marked MTV’s 31st Annual Video Music Awards and also the fact that I’m way too old to be watching it.  My friends and I kept exchanging puzzled looks as one unrecognizable (to us) tween took to the red carpet after the next.  I had never been so excited to see Gwen Stefani or Jennifer Lopez as I was last night.  Phew!  Somebody we knew.  It became quite clear as to why E! has cornered the market on red carpet pre-shows.  As I quickly found myself on the brink of a melodramatic meltdown, I yelled at my TV,   “Sway, WHO ARE THEY WEARING?”  After having cooled my rage with a glass of prosecco, the actual show began.

Within seconds of the opening act, I was concerned that Nicki Minaj had somehow pirated the entire event as there was much more booty on stage than on any ship.  She became this year’s Miley while pirouetting her posterior to her current single, “Anaconda”, which left me hoping Sir Mix A Lot was somewhere wiping his own rear with all the royalty money he received from that song.  She then joined Jessie J. who forgot her pants and Ariana Grande who appears to have a perma hairstyle for their song, “Bang Bang” complete with wardrobe malfunction.  She later joined Usher for his song, aptly named, “She Came To Give It To You.”

Right around the time I’d given up on humanity and started Googling how to obtain an Australian work visa, Miley Cyrus shocked audiences again. This time, however, it had nothing to do with flagrant twerking or her wayward tongue. When she won the VMA for Video of the Year, instead of accepting the award herself, her handsome mystery date took the stage.  He identified himself as “Jesse” and proceeded to deliver a touching speech revealing that he, himself, had grown up homeless which was hard to imagine as he looked like far less homeless than the boys of Five Seconds to Summer in his well tailored suit.  He encouraged viewers to learn more about My Friend’s Place and to get involved by visiting and donating on Miley’s site.

But (with a capital “B”)  Queen B., herself, Beyonce, was not about to be outdone.  Bey performed for a solid fifteen minutes in a stunning jewel encrusted leotard before accepting the Video Vanguard Award from her husband, Jay-Z and the absolutely adorable Blue Ivy.  If all those divorce rumors do have any merit, she should have picked up an Oscar as well.

The other big “B” for last night had to be for Balmain as Jordan Dunn, Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls, and Kim Kardashian all wore the label.  Pro-tip: Do not show up to an awards show wearing the same thing as a supermodel.  While Katy Perry and her date, Riff Raff, gave a nostalgic nod to Britney and Justin, everyone’s favorite good girl wore a romper so short, she could have been a Minaj backup dancer.  Black was a red carpet favorite, but all renditions from sheer paneling to leather pants felt fresh and innovative rather than basic and boring.  Red, pink, and blue were the other colors that were most prevalent, mainly in jewel shades.  While everyone looked “nice,” I didn’t feel floored by anyone in particular… except for Amber Rose, that is.

Smart is the New Pretty: Monday Morning Quarterback
Written by: WhyDid | Smart Is the New Pretty

Typically, I reserve these posts for mid-week brain fodder and date commentary, but why not start off your Monday looking and sounding like you did more than shop, imbibe, and snooze this weekend?

Time for lunch.

How To Tuesday: Slice a Pineapple, Smell Like a Kardashian

A couple of weeks ago, supermarkets across the US saw a spike in pineapple sales.  It may have had something to do with a little “science experiment” executed by none other than the Kardashian Krew.  Now, I’m not sure who I’m more disgusted by: them for showcasing such unladylike behavior on national television, or you for buying into it.  Either way, I’ve always been a fan of pineapple and it’s the perfect fruit for summer fetes, but it can appear to be a bit daunting in its native state.  Have no fear, chopping up a pineapple is much easier than one might have guessed and it’s also chocked full of health benefits other than those not suitable, however, still mentioned on TV.

Weekend Playlist: Get Down Tonight
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

roller disco partyHere’s a question:  What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a 70’s disco roller skating party?  Answer: There is no better way.  My favorite guest DJ and all around crafty lady, Katie (aka the best friend a girl could ask for), is celebrating her golden birthday this weekend.  No, Kim, that’s nothing even remotely close to a golden shower.  A golden birthday is when you turn your age, say 22, on the day, the 22nd.  Get it?

So, while we are combing out our afros and stretching out our leotards, we’ll be getting in the mood with this 70’s inspired playlist.  And probably drinking a little prosecco too.

Send Katie a little birthday love while you’re at it.

xx,
