Lupita Nyong’o, in Prada
The red carpet was packed with actors and actresses meant for the best dressed list. We’ve reached the end of the Award Show season (I think) and this was probably the best way to close it out. Lupita has pretty much hit it out of the park for every award show. That alone, should earn her an award.

So whoever thought it was a good idea to pair Shoshanna with the Sochi Olympics was a creative genius. Personally, I haven’t watched a single event this year and I suppose we could blame that on work, Modern Family, and a few other things, but I feel like this Tumblr page tells me everything I need to know about the games. I’m kidding, it doesn’t. It just makes it slightly more entertaining to see our girl killin’ it as an athlete.
So it’s been a few days since this actually happened and everything has kind of blown of since then, but seeing this text made me feel incredibly uncomfortable! No one can deny that Macklemore has done such great things for the city of Seattle and has turned things around in the scene. Locals are excited about him and proud. Taking home as many Grammys as he did on Sunday night was quite the achievement, but it quickly turned sour the next morning when he wrote this tweet and instagramed this text.
It is what we call “the humblebrag.” It wasn’t enough that you couldn’t privately text this to Kendrick, but you had to publicize it as well? Why do people need to see this? You had a standout performance at the Grammys and you married some couples which was kind of cool, but it kind of begs us to ask – what exactly is Macklemore looking for? Another pat on the back? Some more praise and additional respect from fans saying that he acknowledged that maybe he didn’t deserve Best Rap Album, but he’s telling Kendrick that in a personal text and needs the entire world to see it?
I like what Macklemore stands for and he’s done work this year, but this was in poor taste and I didn’t like it.
We have a little bit of something called a “soft spot” when it comes to former Yow Yow! guests getting media attention. Our girl, Hollis Wong-Wear walked the red carpet at the Grammys Sunday evening because if Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had won for Album of the Year she would have gotten to walk up on stage with the group to accept that award. Sadly, the win wasn’t in their favor, but that didn’t mean that the duo didn’t take home plenty of awards including “Best Rap Album.” Though we know her for her rift in “White Walls,” Hollis has played a huge role in the music that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis has made and that’s why we are so darn proud of her and can’t wait for what’s to come from not only her side project “The Flavr Blue,” but her solo project that she has slightly teased us with.
Taylor Swift didn’t want you to miss her white girl dancing during the Kendrick Lamar x Imagine Dragons performance.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
YES, this is the dress that I would have loved to see Jennifer in at the Golden Globes, but better late than never. We all know that Jennifer is partial to Dior so it’s a no-brainer, but the slim fit and dark color is doing wonders for her on the red carpet. We’re pretty happy with this pick.
Brie Larson in Escada
Brie has come such a long way from starring in her sitcom with Bob Saget. I was excited about her in 21 Jump Street, but now she’s taken on a handful of roles that shed some light on how mature she has grown up to be and what a dynamic actress she is about to become.
