Favourite Fridays: November 16 Edition

November 16, 2012

Ally: Short weeks rule. I can’t believe we’re celebrating Friday already.


This Gif if a great lead-in to my weekly list of Favourites.

I’m Obsessed with Solange Knowles

Ever since Losing You dropped I find myself googling news on Solange. I love me some Beyoncé, but S. Knowles is the most interesting Knowles. She out-dresses everyone, everyday. In fact, she just made Vogue’s Best Dressed list again.

I lost a good 45 minutes this morning reviewing her Vogue UK “What I’m Wearing” blog posts. I suggest you do too.


And if you haven’t yet, please take the necessary time to review this video. Might be my favourite of all time. Even better than the Bangles Manic Monday! GASP.


I’m making poor choices in literature…and telling everyone about it


I don’t consider this “reading” as much as I consider it “infiltrating your brain with filth”. Such joy comes with this! Plum Sykes, as you may know, is a writer for Vogue. She’s considered London elite, and I believe she pals around with Gwyneth and co.

Photo evidence:


I found this hilarious Fametracker article lambasting Sykes’ interview with Paltrow for Vogue back in 2002. They are correct in their assessment that the use of “naughtily nice” is shameful.

A bit of a tangent there, but Sykes puts her “naughtily nice” adjectives to proper use in this deliciously awful piece of chick-lit (I hate the term too, but have yet to come up with a better one).

I read the reviews on the back of the book and was shocked (SHOCKED!) to find that Anna Wintour had provided the novel with glowing praise.

 Perfectly pitched. Playful, funny, satirical, and sweet. I laughed out loud many times

Did you read that? Anna Wintour “LOL’ed”.

 Channing Tatum as Sexiest Man Alive

I nearly wrote this awards program off as a fraud when they handed out the trophy to Bradley Cooper last year. Please, I get more turned on by Piers Morgan. I feel as though all is right in the world of unnecessary celebrity publications now that People has named Channing Tatum as Sexiest Man Alive.


His relationship with his wife is pretty sweet as well. Have we presented a YouTube video montage on this couple yet? My mistake if this is the first time you’re seeing this:

The Internet is full of magic (ha! Pun! Magic Mike! Ha…ah…..)

I know L-A will disagree on this nomination, so I give her this article which adequately reflects hipster outrage at Channing’s award.

Crappy Pop Video of the Week

Why has music sucked so much lately? I go on iTunes all the time only to find smart, well-written music (don’t throw out The Ke$ha, she does not exist in my world). Where is Miley Cyrus when you need her? I’m going to have to throw back for this one, folks.

“It’s just disrespectful, David”. Classic.

    Anna Wintour laughing? That’s like…um… huh. The only appropriate metaphor I can think of IS “Anna Wintour laughing” and I’m pretty sure self-referencing metaphors are even worse than “naughtily nice”

      I didn’t think she was capable of actual laughter. At least not the LOL kind. Perhaps a maniacal laugh, but that’s about it.
