@blairwitme Yes, indeed. I love her dress!
@YinofYang Gisele is beyond! she killed it! Punk and glamorous and beautiful! This is how it's done!
@blairwitme And they were good risks too! Yep, as much as I like seeing the outfits from the Oscar's, this is a lot of fun too. :)
@YinofYang I also think so too! The Met is always fun and it's such a refreshing feeling to see everybody take risk and not the super fancy strict event like the Oscar's..
Oh, my god. There are some gorgeous outfits. I really like these photos because it looks like they're having so much fun. :)

What to Wear to Look Business Casual
If you've ever had an office job, I'm sure you've heard the phrase "business casual" get thrown around. But what does that really mean? Dressing for the workplace can be tricky (especially in the summer months), and looking appropriate for the job is daunting when you aren't given explicit instructions on what to wear. I'll show you how to get past these tricky regulations for dressing, with the guidance of Jessica Alba, who has this style down. Thanks to @LizArnone for the idea. If anyone else has tricky situations for which they don't know what to wear, comment or message me and I'll make a card for you! If you want to wear suit pieces... keep them separate. A full suit isn't business casual, no matter how cute and fashion-forward it is. Keep your suit seperates seperate! A pencil skirt is fine worn with a blouse tucked in or even a cute tee, dressed up with dainty jewelry, and the same goes with trousers. Wide-leg trousers with a blouse and heels make an easy and perfectly appropriate outfit. Similarly, if you have a great blazer, you can use it to dress up denim, make a summery dress or skirt more office-ready, or even wear with casual printed pants. If you want to wear shorts... keep the length to your fingertips (at least). It's hard to avoid shorts in the summer, and certain kinds of shorts are office-appropriate, but the longer, the better. The same goes for short skirts; if they reach your fingertips, they're okay. If you feel awkward about the length of a longer skirt or shorts, balance them out with a sleeveless top. This should go without saying, but denim shorts are too casual for the office, and cutoffs are NEVER business casual. When the weather cools, opaque tights under shorts are another way to make them office-appropriate. If you want to wear denim... stick with darkwash. First of all, don't wear denim to the office on your first day, and check out what other people are wearing; if they say business casual but no one's wearing denim, steer clear. That being said, jeans can be business casual, but you have to keep in mind that you're dressing the denim up, not wearing them as is, no matter how cute or trendy they are. Only wear your pairs that are in the best shape without fraying, fading, rips or patches, and pick a pair that's darkwash or, better yet, black denim. If you want to wear a sleeveless blouse... keep it high-necked. By sleeveless, I'm not calling a strappy cami office-appropriate, unless you can guarantee that you'll never take that blazer or cardigan off all day. A sleeveless blouse is appropriate for the summer, but it's best if it extends to the edge of your shoulders; anything that can qualify as strappy isn't appropriate worn alone. No cleavage should ever be shown at the office, but keep your neckline especially high to balance a sleeveless cut; just below or at your collarbones is ideal, or go super trendy with a turtleneck. All summer... wear linen and cute cotton pants or jumpsuits. Those soft cotton or linen pants that are so comfortable and look like a mix between a pajama pant and trousers? That aren't jeans, aren't quite suit pants? Those are your best friends for summer office casual. Dress them up with blouses and heels or chic flats, pair with a blazer for a non-suit suit, and you'll feel breezy, cool, and work-appropriate. Treat a jumpsuit similarly, layering blouses over strappy jumpsuits or keeping a blazer buttoned over. Or... try a matching top and bottoms over a traditional suit! Matching combos are super cute and a fashion-forward twist on the suit, and can be just as work-appropriate. Try a high-waisted skirt, pants, or culottes, with a matching cropped top, as long as there is no midriff showing. Make sure that not only does the top cover the waistband of the skirt or pants, but gives an extra inch or two of fabric so that if you reach for something, the whole office doesn't see your belly. Some general tips... * Pay attention to what other people are wearing. If your coworkers wear shorts that are shorter than I suggested and are making them look appropriate, you can too. If you see one person wearing the exception and they're the only one, don't join them unless a superior gives you the go-ahead (which is rare). * If you wear something that sounds appropriate on paper but doesn't feel quite right in your office environment, pay attention to what it might be that's making you feel inappropriate. Is the dress too formal? Too casual? Does your skirt feel a little too short compared to everyone else's? Is that top too pilled or worn? Forgive yourself for a mistake, as "business casual" is the vaguest of guidelines, and don't make it again. * Simple heels, blazers, button-up blouses, and classic jewelry are all easy ways to make something look more work-appropriate. If you have a sundress that's modest enough to wear but you want to make it more office-ready, add a blazer or structured jacket and heels.
Beyonce's Lemonade: Cheating, Forgiveness, and Growth
Don't have an hour to watch Beyonce's new visual album? It's okay, I did for you. (Though really, you should find time...) I went into this film knowing nothing about the plot, and I feel like it is best if you do the same. Below the cut on each block I provide the transcription. Certain parts are quite long so for the full spoken work, please visit Bustle. Intuition We begin with hauntingly silent images. There is no movement and you find yourself holding your breath without realizing. Here starts the monologue that chronicles a cheating relationship from the very start. Song lyrics: "I pray you catch me whispering." --------------- "I tried to make a home out of you but doors lead to trap doors, a stairway leads to nothing. In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 a.m. and lie to me. What are you hiding?" Denial Our leading woman transforms from her previous state. She jumps into the water, sheds her old clothes and becomes a different woman. She tries to just absorb the situation, to not let it affect her, to ignore it away. She dons a yellow dress and takes a baseball bat to the entire town. She's over the denial stage. Now, she's mad. Song lyrics: "What's worse, looking jealous or crazy?" "Can't you see there's no other man above you? What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you." -------- I tried to change, closed my mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less awake. But still inside me, coiled deep, was the need to know... are you cheating on me? Cheating? Are you cheating on me?" Anger Now we're taken to a deserted car park, where our leading woman scares the shit out of us. She spits of how stupid her lover was to lie to her, HER of all people! That he's not going to get away with it, that he doesn't know who he just messed with. In the midst of fire and darkness we are intimidated as hell. Song lyrics: "I'll give you one more try, you know I'm your life You try this shit again, you 'gon lose your wife." -------- If it's what you truly want... I can wear her skin over mine. Her hair over mine. Her hands as gloves. Her teeth as confetti. Her scalp, a cap. We can pose for a photograph all three of us. Immortalized... you and your perfect girl. Why can't you see me? Why can't you see me? Everyone else can." Apathy Now that she's sufficiently made whoever cheated on her terrified for their lives, leading lady gets on a school bus "to the club" and lets us know that she no longer "gives a fuck." She's over it and moving on. Song lyrics: "Middle fingers up, put them hands high Put it in his face, tell him "boy, bye!'" -------------------- So, what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you've killed me? Here lies the body of love of my life, whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead. Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted." Emptiness We return to the car park, filled with flames. We flash back and forth between the car park, a mansion, and a long red hallway. She seems like she's in a trance and the fear-inducing attitude she had has faded. Song lyrics: "She just killed everybody in here and I was her witness" --------- She sleeps all day. Dreams of you in both worlds. Dear moon, we blame you for floods... for the flush of blood... for men who are also wolves. We blame for the night, for the dark, for the ghosts. Loss We're taken into the city and discover our leading lady is dealing with this blow by working her ass off. She throws herself into her craft, she's the best, she's "worth every dollar." But then our red hallway is set on fire - she's burning a house down. Song lyrics: "She's too smart to crave material things, stackin' her paper" ----------------- Every fear... every nightmare... anyone has ever had. Accountability We're in a mansion, we're in a neighborhood, we're in the past and present. We hear of a child wanting desperately to be like her mother, to be strong for her, to be a woman that is not bent and broken by any man in their lives. Father, friend, or husband. Song lyrics: "Came into this world, daddy's little girl. Daddy made a soldier out of me." ----------------- You find the black tube inside her beauty case where she keeps your father's old prison letters. You desperately want to look like her. You look nothing like your mother. You look everything like your mother. Your mother is a woman and women like her cannot be contained. Did he bend your reflection? Did he make you forget your own name? Did he convince you he was a god? Am I talking about your husband or your father? Reformation From the loud anthem of accountability, we're taken back to stark silence. We're in an empty stadium as we watch our leading woman come to terms with what is happening. She tries to see the other side, if there is another side. Perhaps if she changes her view she can change the situation. Song lyrics: "9 times out of 10 I know you're lying, and 9 times out of 10 I know you're trying, So i'm trying to be fair." "Cause you are my life line." ----------------- Why do you deny yourself heaven? Why do you consider yourself undeserving? Why are you afraid of love? You think it's not possible for someone like you. But you are the love of my life. You are the love of my life. You are the love of my life. Forgiveness We're taken to a peaceful place filled with books and music, a fire place. This is where our leading lady accepts and forgives. She is willing to try again but only if its a real try, if they're both committed. Jay-Z now makes his appearance. Confirming that this isn't fiction - Beyonce isn't playing any role but her own. Song lyrics: "And your heart is broken cause I walked away Show me your scars and I won't walk away And I know I promised that I couldn't stay, baby Every promise don't work out that way." ------------- Baptize me... now that reconciliation is possible. If we're gonna heal, let it be glorious. Do you remember being born? Are you thankful for the hips that cracked? Resurrection In resurrection we are shown women holding their lost loves ones (including the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and countless others.) A new beginning, but never forgetting. --------------- So how we supposed to lead our children to the future? What do we do? How do we lead them? Love. L-O-V-E, love. Hope Now Beyonce is determined to move forward with power, new strength, and freedom. She will not let her freedom "rot in hell." She will get everything she deserves, everyone will get what they deserve. Song lyrics: "Freedom freedom cut me lose Freedom freedom where are you cause I need freedom too." ---------- The nail technician pushed my cuticles back... turns my hand over, stretches the skin on my palm and says, "I see your daughters and their daughters." Redemption The wounds have closed and Beyonce says that the process, while it was heart breaking, has made her stronger, opened her eyes, and gave her a new purpose. The concept of Lemonade was inspired by her grandmother. She was a strong woman who made lemonade since her life gave her plenty of lemons. --------------------- Grandmother, the alchemist, you spun gold out of this hard life, conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade. My grandma said "Nothing real can be threatened." True love brought salvation back into me. With every tear came redemption and my torturer became my remedy. So we're gonna heal. We're gonna start again. You've brought the orchestra, synchronized swimmers. After you've digested this, how do you feel about this open letter about infidelity?
Watch Gwen's Relationships Evolve For 10 Years
Gwen Stefani's relationships have always been rocky. For better or for worse, they provided Stefani with the material to write some of her best songs. First dating a fellow band mate, Tony, and then marrying Gavin Rossdale. Through Stefani's work, we can watch the whole thing unfold: Sunday Morning This song was about Tony Kanal, Stefani's boyfriend and No Doubt's bassist. They had an incredibly rocky relationship which probably wasn't helped by the amount of songs she wrote talking about how much it sucked. This song was inspired by one of their last fights. "Sappy pathetic little me That was the girl I used to be I know who I am, but who are you? You're not looking like you used to " Bathwater Five years into her relationship with Gavin Rossdale, Stefani was having trouble dealing with his dating style, his long list of lovers, and his flirty personality. He may or may not have cheated on her at this point, but she "can't help" staying with him. "But I still love to wash in your old bathwater Love to think that you couldn't love another I can't help it...you're my kind of man" Running One year before Stefani and Rossdale got married, No Doubt released one of their best albums, Rock Steady. On it, Stefani wrote one of her happiest songs about her soon-to-be husband. This was a hopeful time for the couple. "Me I'm the one you chose Out of all the people You wanted me the most I'm so sorry that I've fallen Help me up lets keep on running Don't let me fall out of love" Detective Aaaaaand then it all turns to shit. Stefani found out that Rossdale is a nasty cheater and wrote one of my favorite songs calling him out. "I feel you must have failed me once again you've let me down Peek in, sneak about I'm gonna snoop and call you out I've caught you, you're hands are red Now I'm your broken hearted detective" Cool But in the mean time, her relationship with Tony improved and she was able to write a song for her solo album about how they are on great terms - they want each other to be happy, they can be friends again, and they're finally at peace. "It's hard to remember how it felt before Now I found the love of my life... Passes things get more comfortable Everything is going right And after all the obstacles It's good to see you now with someone else And it's such a miracle that you and me are still good friends After all that we've been through I know we're cool" Used To Love You After 3 children, getting back together, breaking up, getting back together again, etc, Stefani and Rossdale finally called it quits, divorcing in 2015. Gwen comes to terms with it with one of her latest releases, Used to Love You. "Never thought this would happen Gonna let it sink in, you're gone I don't know, know what I'm feeling I must be dreaming, you're gone Suitcase, band-aids Pulling back out the driveway You go, I'll stay You can keep all the memories I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you I thought you loved me the most" Make Me Like You Now, Stefani is dating (is engaged to????) Blake Shelton and is over-the-moon happy. Her newest track is all about falling in love unexpectedly. She's happy, poppy, and ready to conquer the world all over again. "Why'd you have to go and make me like you? Yeah this is a feeling I'm not used to Why'd you have to go and make me like you? I'm so mad at you cause now you got me missing you Cause now you got me missing you" Best of luck on your new romance, and thank you for all the music you've created!
