Snaps for a Snapshot: 2016 Cannes Film Festival

Who: Bella Hadid

Wearing: Roberto Cavalli

Where: “Cafe Society” Premiere

We probably won’t be keeping up with this and doing multiple posts, but it did make sense to share some photos of some of our current favorite looks – just to give you a little snapshot! If you like what you see, well, then you – personally can continue following up with it. :)

President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

I’m so behind on this, but I finally got to finish watching this in its entirety this weekend. I don’t know how many people actually agree with me – and it’s okay if you don’t – but I’m really going to miss Barack Obama as a president. He wasn’t a perfect human by any means because no one is, but he was the COOLEST President we’ve ever had. That’s not a requirement for being president, but that’s just how I feel. I’ve enjoyed hearing him speak and continue to be vulnerable in front of America and I still remember being in college surrounded by all of my peers who celebrated him being elected as President the first time and what an incredible moment that was to witness.

This is one of my favorite videos because I think more than ever, we get to see all of President Obama’s humor and it’s perfect.

2016 Met Gala Red Carpet

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

Someone’s trying a little too hard, right?

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Kendall Jenner

Wearing: Balmain

Where: 2016 MTV Movie Awards

There hasn’t been that much coverage on the 2016 MTV Movie Awards yet and the weird thing is that a lot of celebrities are ending up in photos that are from backstage or the after party as many opted out of the red carpet. Embarrassed much?

We love this look from Kendall though because of the high-low dress (a trend we’re loving this season!) and these incredible lace ups. Peep her Instagram account to see the work that went into getting her in these.

2016 Oscars After Party

Brie Larson in Monse

This is my favorite because The Oscars red carpet tends to be very grand and conservative, but the after party is when things start to get a little bit sexier and you know all the stars that weren’t invited to the actual award show get to come out so that’s nice for them.

We HAD to kick this post off with Brie. Honestly, how could we not? Also, oh my goodness – is she wearing pink velvet? She not only was the best dressed of the night, but clearly the most comfortable the rest of the night. We just want to be friends with her.

The First Monday in May

!!!

Oh my goodness, watching this trailer just gave me all sorts of exciting goosebumps! The Met Ball is something that we’ve been highlighting on Yow Yow! uh since this blog was born and it is THE biggest night in fashion of the entire year. I’ve always loved seeing all of the celebrities and designers on the red carpet and I’m even more thrilled that there’s a behind the scene documentary being created for it. This reminds me a lot of The September Issue – which just happens to be one of my favorite documentaries also.

Grammys 2016 Red Carpet

Selena Gomez in Calvin Klein

The red carpet for me this year was just so-so. There wasn’t anything that I absolutely loved or hated, maybe in the end I just prefer things like the Golden Globes or The Oscars. Usually, the first look that I share is something that I really like. This time, though I give this look a 6/10. The sparkly blue is nice and sure the cut-outs are edgy, but it’s really not anything we haven’t seen before. Also her old school hair is just meh to me.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone!

After coming back from Mexico, I have felt completely sleep-deprived all week so lucky for me, your girl got 10 hours last night and now we’re ready to rally for the most low-key Super Bowl party ever. Just kidding, we’re not going to a party. Since Super Bowl is sort of overlapping with Vietnamese/Chinese New Year, my friend Kelly is coming over to watch the game with me and nom on some takeout Chinese food that we’re going to grab beforehand.

It’s pretty exciting that the Super Bowl is here this year, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m not as into it as I thought I would be. I didn’t go to any of the events up in Super Bowl city at all and I wish I had because I hear the city has been transformed! This might have something to do with the fact that the Seahawks aren’t in it this year and that means for the first time since I moved here, I’m not rooting for a team actually in the Super Bowl. Weird, right? We’ll get it next year ;)

I hope all of you have a very relaxing and fun Super Bowl Sunday! Who is everyone rooting for? I’m rooting for the Broncos since we beat them two years ago and it’s supposedly Peyton’s last game so it’d be nice for him to get another ring before retiring. With that said, I think Cam Newton and the Panthers are going to destroy the Broncos. They are so aggressive and at times a little bit scary!

Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet Arrivals

Zendaya in Marchesa

This was, hands down, the best look of the night. It’s so hard to hate on a Marchesa gown and of course Zendaya – the 19-year old startlet that everyone couldn’t wait to see on the red carpet this evening. I’m loving everything about this regal red look. It’s so age appropriate and really very pretty.

Yow Yow’s Yearly Recap

We didn’t intend to be as late on this post as we actually are, but unfortunately, we’ve just been a little bit under the weather. Also, if I’m being honest, I was actually dreading writing this post for the longest time because I knew how these stats would look and I wasn’t particularly excited about them. In 2015, these are the most dismal numbers we’ve ever seen. But instead of throwing ourselves a pity party, we’re going to share the numbers and then we’re going to move forward because I paid for another year on this domain and we’re not going to let it go to waste. I’m still really excited about Yow Yow! I went through each month in 2015 and quickly scanned through all of the posts that I wrote – some that I laughed at and some that I had forgotten I had even written this year. Writing in 2015 was hard and it’s often times difficult to juggle this and a full-time job that I really care about, but if we can do this for six years, we can do a 7th.

Stats from 2014 will be on the left and italicized while stats from 2015 will be right and bold:

1,400,602 total visits to Yow Yow! – – – – – – – – – – – 1,471,487 total visit to Yow Yow!

In just 2015 alone, we had 70,885 visits to Yow Yow!
