Elle Women in Hollywood Awards

Vanessa Hudgens

It has been a couple of weeks for women. There’s a lot in the news that doesn’t make me happy to share and my heart hurts for all the women – the victims – that have had to endure their share of sexual harassment and sexual assault at the hands of men. This week, I’m seeing women come together in so many ways – through social media, through events, and through stories. I hate to have to witness a moment like this in 2017, but at the same time, I couldn’t be more proud of the strength in our voices right now. We could spend hours writing a post recapping all of my feelings from the past couple of weeks, but instead I’d like to share some photos of inspiring women from the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.

Molly Young Profiles Zac Efron

The other day, Yow Yow! had the wonderful opportunity to interview the lovely freelance writer Molly Young and today she revealed to us all today that she had actually just done a recent profile on actor Zac Efron for Elle. Molly is notorious for her profiles and since I’ve never shared with you all any of her pieces before, I thought now was a better time than any. 

Check out her profile on our former Disney heartthrob here

Prabal Gurung For Target

Every time a new collection is released for Target, I immediately get excited. As much as I love and adore the pieces that come out in the collection, I already know in my head that I will most likely never make my way to a Target location to purchase a piece. In the years that I’ve been writing for Yow Yow and the years that Target has had these collaborations, I have never once called a collaboration piece my own.

This time will be no different, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pick our favorites still, right?

Prabal Gurung has always been one of my favorite designers mainly because his prints are absolutely exquisite and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. For fashion enthusiasts everywhere, this collection is going to be a big deal because it means snagging these prints for the best prices.

Here are my 5 picks:

Louise Roe Named Editor-At-Large At Glamour

photo cred | InStyle

One of my favorite style icons (next to Alexa Chung of course) has been named the Fashion Editor-At-Large at Glamour Magazine. Louise Roe, who is originally from across the pond, has been making a name for herself in the last couple of years first appearing on The City as Olivia Palermo’s “nemesis” at Elle and then as the host of her own CW makeover television series, Plain Jane. I actually really loved Plain Jane when I caught up with the show earlier this year, but it didn’t pick up that much steam over here in the states. I hear that is is pretty successful in the UK though.

Congratulations Louise! I can’t wait to see how you put your own spin on things over at Glamour.

Hello Kitty Has a Human Body

To celebrate Elle Taiwan’s 20th anniversary, they decided to put this icon on their latest cover! She looks great, but for some reason this strangely reminds me of when Tyra Banks the doll turned into Tyra Banks the human in the old Lindsay Lohan movie – Life-Size. These things could be similar or just not related in any way at all.
