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.
Unrealistic TV Apartments That Make Every New Yorker Jealous
As I sit in my tiny bedroom with no air conditioning, I watch Carrie Bradshaw bask in the hugeness of her awesome West Village apartment on Sex and the City. How can she afford this on a writer's salary?! And then I remember...it's just a TV show. Television is full of unrealistic New York City apartments that make us real-life New Yorkers totally jealous, but we've got to remember, they're all too good to be true. This picture doesn't even do the entire apartment justice (remember the giant closet??) There's no way that a small newspaper columnist could afford this apartment! I did a little investigation and found out that this apartment in the West Village sells for $600,000. Maybe Mr. Big could afford this, but no way in hell Carrie could! In HIMYM there are several roommates splitting the rent in this apartment, but I still don't buy it! A little research proved that the gang's hangout would probably go for around $5000 a month. Not as bad as I thought, but I doubt Lily's shopping habits and Marshall's unemployment in the first few seasons could afford it. Most people are living the life of luxury on Gossip Girl - except the Humphrey's. They're supposed to be much less well off than the rest of the characters and yet, they afford this pretty amazing Brooklyn apartment. This DUMBO apartment would probably sell for $6000 a month. Another unrealistic West Village apartment belongs to Monica and Rachel in Friends. With the huge kitchen, huge windows and a huge living room, this one could be purchased for around $2.5 million. Somehow I don't think a Central Perk salary could afford that! Seinfeld's Upper West Side apartment might be the most realistic because Jerry seems fairly financially stable throughout the series. Either way this apartment with one bedroom, plenty of office space, a huge living room and a reasonably-sized kitchen would sell for around $900,000. Most of these apartments are the hangout spot for the show's group of friends. My place is barely big enough for one person, so all of these are giving me tons of apartment envy!!!
4 Ponytail Lessons From Blake Lively
Does flawless even appear in Blake Lively's world? Whether it be her career, love life or beauty, she seems to have it all together. She also has her way to make a ponytail appear modern and edgy with unconventional styling tricks. 1. Play up a high ponytail with a simple braid. Take during the 2009 Emmy Awards. Blake rocked the red carpet with a stunning red dress with sequin details and high ponytail with braid details. To recreate this look, tie your hair back into a high ponytail. Take a small section from the ponytail tail and clip it aside. Then, make a simple braid with the rest of the hair until you reach the ends. Finally, release the clipped hair, wrap it around the ponytail hiding the elastic and secure it with pins. Image Source: Reuters 2. Take an edgy spin with a fishtail braid. Fishtail braids are often styled on the side but Blake made it more interesting by creating an undone look at her Salvage premier. She styled the tousled fishtail braid in a high ponytail and finished it off by tying her matte-textured hair around the end of tail. To match her stunning yellow dress, she added a shimmery ponytail holder at the base. Image Source: Gettys Image 3. Three is the lucky number! During Met Gala 2013 Blake was spotted with a three section 'do. This was done by putting the top section into a ponytail and loop ends through to create a second one. Repeating this until you have three connected ponytails. 4. Don't be afraid to mix and match. Blake is also on top of her game. In 2009, at the Society of Memorial Sloan event she made an elegant hybrid of a curl pin updo with a low ponytail. You can recreate this style by pin curling the top section of the hair and tie the rest of the hair in a low ponytail. You can't deny she's an expert with ponytails. Which one(s) is your favorite?
The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
