It feels like we’ve been hearing a lot about Lauryn Hill in the press lately and that’s because she’s about to embark on her first world tour in quite some time. It’s the 20th anniversary of her iconic album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” On top of that, she’s decided to join Woolrich for their latest fashion campaign. It’s her first fashion campaign ever and even more special because she’s lending her voice to it.
In the campaign, Lauryn is singing one of my favorite songs, “Ex-Factor,” but it’s the first time I’ve ever heard it sung like this. Accompanying the campaign is also her words on what “American Soul” means to her. Lastly, if the backdrop for this video looks familiar, it’s because it takes place in Washington Heights. This is the same location where “Doo Wop – (That Thing)” was originally shot.
We’re loving every bit of Lauryn’s comeback!

Meet your latest angels: Naomi Scott, Lupita Nyong’o, and Kristen Stewart. The ladies are returning for a reboot slated to be released June 2019. With Elizabeth Banks in the director’s chair – the film is stacked with a powerhouse lineup of women and we can’t wait to see the result. I have to admit – though it’s no secret at all – I’ve never been a fan of Stewart’s acting and she’ll be the one that I will be least impressed by in this film, but I’m willing to keep an open mind. I loved the 2000 version and I hope this one will be just as great!

Last week, we learned that Nylon would make the complete switch to digital and would be shutting down their print magazine. I spent the weekend thinking about this and how Nylon wasn’t the first magazine to do this and it certainly won’t be the last. I can’t even recall the last year I had a magazine subscription or the last time I even bought one by choice. In a way, I’m the problem here. I’ve been reading Nylon both online and in print since I was a teenager, but these days only sticking to digital.
It was a prominent magazine for me during my scene days and when I felt like dipping into something I thought was just a little bit edgier than Teen Vogue. When I think of my identity back then, I think I was a little bit of both! Half Teen Vogue / Half Nylon. Wasn’t every girl at that age? Nylon was at the cutting edge of trends, icons, fashion, and music. There was even a time where I dreamt of being a part of this magazine in some way shape or form way wayyyy back when I wanted to be a journalist.
I’m very sad to hear that the print version of Nylon is shutting down. The magazine meant so much to me during my adolescent years, but as always, we’ll continue to read Nylon Digital every day and hope that even their print legacy can continue to live on as it shifts to fully digital.

I love to watch movie trailers and I love to get excited about what’s coming out. However, when it really comes down to it, these movie trailers and their dates get lost in my own timeline. I somehow always forget when they come out and when they are released, I don’t make time to watch the film in theaters. It’s quite the problem to have, but it’s been awhile since I’ve watched a trailer (other than “Mother” recently) that caught my attention enough to post it on Yow Yow!
In “Una,” Rooney Mara plays a woman who previously engaged in a relationship with her much older neighbor. The film flashes between present day and her as a child with actor Ben Mendelsohn. After discovering Mendelsohn in the present day, she finds that he has completely stripped himself of his old identity – he has a new name and apparently, a new wife. Currently the film is slated to be released October 13th.

Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!
I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.
