The Most Fashionable Friends on TV
Friends on TV are great because their lives are crazy and dramatic, but they still remind us of our own friendships and personal relationships. On top of that, in the cases of many TV shows, the friends are so fashionable that they give us major style envy. In reality, most friend groups have much more similar fashion senses, or maybe just one friend who's the fashionable one. I firmly believe that a group of fashionable friends is better than one stand alone style star, so let's take a look at some of the most fashionable friends on TV to draw inspiration from this week. 1. Sex and the City Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are so known for their clothes that the outrageous outfits are enough of a reason alone to watch the show. While the clothes themselves (and their often designer labels) are pretty unrealistic, the drastically different style preferences of the four friends is also a little crazy. All the same, we can't help but love these ladies and their fashion choices, good or bad! 2. Pretty Little Liars While Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer have definitely suffered their fair share of fashion misteps and accessory overloads, they're overall an undeniably fashionable foursome. When you consider their personalities, from bookish Spencer to Emily the athlete, it doesn't always make sense how well-accessorized these girls are, but they're inspirational all the same. 3. Gossip Girl Whether as a twosome or with their faithful (and often fashionable) minions, Blair and Serena are arguably the most fashionable girls to grace our TV screens, and we miss them everyday for the envy-sparking fashions they wore. While the designer shopping bags and labels weren't exactly attainable, these girls demonstrated their best friend bond through clothing, and we can all aspire to do the same. 4. Beverly Hills, 90210 Through feuds and friendship, Kelly, Donna, and Brenda were the most fashionable friends that you couldn't help but follow in the 90's. Through love triangles, romance and friendship drama, these ladies were undeniably fashionable, and as the 90's have become in style once again today, we can all get some crop-top and denim inspiration from the sassiest high schoolers around. 5. 90210 (reboot) The 2008 remake of the beloved soap opera was so dialed-up fashion-wise, it's comparable to Gossip Girl, only for the West Coast. Annie, Naomi, Silver, and really all their other come-and-go friends (I'm looking at you, Ivy!) were so fashionable, they weren't really believable as high school students. Like their predecessors mentioned above, throughout love and friendship drama galore, these ladies let fashion guide the way, and we can all take note. 6. Lipstick Jungle Whether or not you watched the too briefly on TV Lipstick Jungle, you can appreciate how on-point these three friends kept their personal styles. Victory, Wendy, and Nico may have been a bit silly as characters, but their professional careers and high-fashion outfits to match gave me serious envy for how I wish I could dress as a working adult, and the friendships that could last for life. 7. Charlie's Angels Sabrina, Jill, and Kelly were the original trio of badass friends that we have all grown up referencing, and their 70's fashion gives us another reason to admire the leading ladies. From spandex to suede, and everything 70's in between, these girls embodied power dressing, and set a great example of strong women, and just how fashion-forward they can be.
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
TV Show Wedding Dresses, Ranked
Most of us are suckers for a good TV wedding. The best sitcom weddings have just enough laughs and just enough tearjerker moments, and also, a really good wedding dress. Whether the wedding was adorable or not, these are some of the most well-known weddings on TV, and I ranked the wedding dresses worn by our favorite brides. Monica Geller on FRIENDS: A I'm a sucker for a simple wedding dress. With the additions of a beautiful veil and jewelry, the look had just enough for me, and Monica looked elegant and timeless in this dress. I also appreciate dresses that aren't strapless, as everyone seems to opt for strapless these days, and it's getting overdone. The lace on her neckline was delicate and sweet but not overdone, and combined with the simple gown, looked sleek and chic. Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation: B The newspaper dress idea was adorable in thought, but in practice lead to a not-too-stylish wedding dress. I'm torn on this one, because the shorter dress is a bit more age-appropriate, but I also felt like Leslie deserved a slightly less cutesy style than this one. It was such a sweet TV wedding, and Leslie looked great, but the lace short sleeves and black sash were just all a bit too bridesmaid to me. Lily Aldrin on How I Met Your Mother: A- Lily's dress was so sweet, girly, and stylish, just like her. Marshall and Lily are my favorite TV couple, and while their wedding had many mishaps and slip-ups, the wedding dress was pretty great. The sparkly beaded top was perfect for Lily, but I'm not crazy about the added bow, which was a bit too precious. Her hair and general styling looked elegant and sweet. Phoebe Buffay on FRIENDS: C+ I adore Phoebe and Mike, and their wedding in the snow was adorable, but I never understood her dress. Not only is it far from my favorite style on anyone, but it seemed so far from Phoebe's personality to want a shiny bustier top with rhinestone buttons. The style seemed a little tacky to me with her tight blonde curls, and Phoebe's bohemian aesthetic deserved a great dress to match. Carla Espinosa on Scrubs: A- Carla's dress was absolutely beautiful. Her wedding to Turk was far from perfect, but their marriage was rock-solid and the dress kicked it off well. The neckline is a bit more interesting than a straight-across neck, and the gathered waist added some interest to an otherwise understated look. I also adore the simple styling of her hair, which draws attention to the neckline of her dress and doesn't look fussy. Pam Beesly on The Office: B Jim and Pam's wedding was THE BEST. As beautiful as Pam looked, I have mixed feelings on her dress. To her credit, her options were limited accomodating a baby bump. I love the beaded empire waist to allow the fabric to skim over her belly, but I felt like the sweetheart neckline of her dress, especially combined with her translucent necklace, were a bit too cheesy. Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl: A+ For Blair's second and most important wedding to Chuck Bass, she wore the most breathtakingly unconventional gown, and it was tasteful, elegant, and perfect. The slim fit and long sleeves are a beautiful contrast to a more typical strapless princess gown like the one she wore to her first wedding. Leave it to Blair to wear a headband to her own wedding, and make it look absolutely amazing. Combined with Chuck's white suit with matching accents, this was the perfect wedding to end the show, and a perfect dress to get married in. What are your favorite TV wedding dresses? I'd love to hear your thoughts @marshalledgar @LauraFisher @allischaaff, and anyone else!
Which TV Finale Disappointed You The Most?
To every intense TV fan, the series finale is a truly bittersweet moment. You're sad to see your favorite show go, but it's time. You're anticipating so much. The characters and the plot need to work out exactly as you hoped or you'll be disappointed. Even if it's not exactly what you want...it needs to be close. But there are some TV finales out there that are just WTF. Totally confusing, totally unsatisfying, leaving all fans shouting "I WAITED SEVEN SEASONS FOR THIS?!" How I Met Your Mother How could they toss away the mother's character like that?? The show's title alone sets up fans to want a relationship with the mother, and then we barely get to know her. Disappointing. Dexter I sort of thought Dexter would die at the end of all of this, and honestly, that seems like a pretty appropriate ending based on the seven seasons. But no...he's just living in a cabin somewhere lumberjacking it up? Nah, I don't buy it. Gossip Girl Dan is Gossip Girl, are you kidding?!? Plot wise, it makes sense I guess, but I will never understand that decision. Also...why is no one pissed at him for it?? Serena even marries him knowing all the crap he put her through as Gossip Girl. It's all very confusing. Lost So everyone's dead? But they're together in heaven? Is that it? Lost remained true to all the seasons and confused the crap out of me with the season finale. At least Vincent was in it, he was always my favorite character anyways. I think of each of these shows a little less fondly because of their totally unsatisfying finales. @gavriella @rodiziketan @nicolejb @danidee and all the other Vingle TV fans out there, which TV finale is most disappointing for you?
