Game of ThronesFor a couple of seasons now, has emphasized the power that many of its female characters hold. Theyre in charge of the Seven Kingdoms and their own forces.

On the first Monday of May every year, celebrities and public figures attend the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala sporting over-the-top outfits that nearly always become instant . The event celebrates the Met’s opening of its fashion exhibit at The Costume Institute, and the celebration’s dress code matches its theme.

Chois hyper-real eyes on the actors face took her five hours to complete and perfectly captured the camp brief of the gala Some celebrities might have struggled to interpret the camp theme of this years to quote one approving tweet having not only understood the assignment, but turned it in early for extra credit.

Lori Loughlin ‘Feeling More & More Confident’ That She Won’t Be Found Guilty In College Bribery Case! – Perez Hilton

Her and her husband Mossimo Giannulli’s attorneys seem to think so! The insider dished: Well, that would certainly be a twist! Prosecutors initially offered Loughlin and Giannulli a plea deal that would have drastically reduced their sentences, but the couple turned it down because it included jail time. According to the People source, that’s exactly how Aunt Becky expects this case to pan out — thanks to a “valid defense” that will apparently support her ignorance claims. The insider explained: Wow. That’s a confident stance coming from someone facing 40 years in prison. Is Loughlin being ignorant here, or does she actually have a shot at rowing out of this unsplintered by the law? As we wrote, Loughlin is reportedly …

Lady Gaga stole the show four times at the 2019 Met Gala in New York City.Image: Theo Wargo/WireImage Forget the pretenders: The Met Gala is the red carpet of all red carpets. Well, technically, pink carpets. The fundraiser, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, continued its reputation of hosting the most out-there, challenging looks on Monday night, with the likes of Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Jared Leto, and Zendaya just a few of the many highlights from the event. This year’s Met Gala theme, Camp, was a perfect match for the event’s history of the wild and unapologetically garish. It’s based on a 1964 essay by Susan Sontag, who came to define Camp as a “love of the …

Donald Trump met with Twitter’s CEO

What do you get from an EMF-shielded tent? A pain in the neck and an IQ of ten.Image: photo:  Phillip Faraone / Getty. Illustration: Vicky Leta / Mashable  Jack Dorsey once turned completely orange.  His skin was orange. His hair was orange. Even his eyes were orange. But as he biohacked his way toward mental clarity, becoming an overgrown Oompa Loompa was just another necessary step on the journey.  This bizarre detail about the CEO of Twitter and Square was just one of many shared by Dorsey on the March 16 episode of the Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast — an episode highlighted in a recent New York Times article addressing Dorsey’s affinity for “salt juice.” The rambling roughly hour-long conversation covers …

Physicists Are Bewitched by Twisted Graphene’s ‘Magic Angle’

Pablo Jarillo-Herrero is channeling some of his copious energy into a morning run, dodging startled pedestrians as he zips along, gradually disappearing into the distance. He’d doubtlessly be moving even faster if he weren’t dressed in a sports coat, slacks, and dress shoes, and confined to one of the many weirdly long corridors that crisscross the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But what he lacks in gear and roadway he makes up for in determination, driven by the knowledge that a packed auditorium is waiting for him to take the podium. Jarillo-Herrero has never been a slacker, but his activity has jumped several levels since his dramatic announcement in March 2018 that his lab at MIT had found …

Phil Yu Of ‘Angry Asian Man’: ‘Don’t Let Anyone Else Tell Your Story’

That’s what’s most amusing about the Bay Area native. Yu is a pioneer. An “angry” one. Over the course of almost two decades, Yu has built up a reputable brand as the blogger Angry Asian Man. Today, he’s considered one of the most powerful voices on social media, sounding the alarm when it comes to injustices affecting the Asian community. “There is no one way to be Asian American. People try to put you in a box … and unfortunately, the way that that plays out is a lot of us are silenced or made to feel that we need to shut up,” he says. You don’t have to wait for permission to tell your story, and don’t let anyone …

4 Tips To Make Wedding Dress Shopping Less Stressful Betches

In November 2018, I married my college sweetheart, Mike Sorrentino. One of the most memorable and surreal moments of the entire experience was my first time trying on wedding gowns. I planned our entire wedding start to finish in roughly two months, so I didn’t have time to waste on decisions, especially when it came to wedding dress shopping. I decided on both my wedding gowns in just 30 minutes. I swear, it’s true! But that’s because I went in prepared. Right off the bat, I had in mind a few dresses I liked and wanted to use as inspiration for my gown. I had Pronovias, Ines di Santo, Marchesa, and Zuhair Murad bookmarked as my favorite bridal designers while researching …

Are We Done Being Extra? Betches

Last night, not one, but TWO celebrities announced their pregnancies: Blake Lively, at the New York City premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and Keira Knightley, at a Chanel cocktail party in Paris (très chic). Now, what was surprising about both of these pregnancy announcements was just that—they weren’t really announcements at all. There was not some big press conference or statement released, not even an Instagram of a sonogram with a long caption. It was just “Here I am, and oh btw, I am carrying a child.” I love it. In a time where we are inundated with celebrity “news,” when everything from a double tap on an Instagram post to an airport outfit spawns headline after headline, this non-announcement announcement is …

Trump Phones Putin to Own the Libs

The big news breaking on Friday afternoon was that President Donald Trump had a long talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin about various things, including what Trump described in a New York Times noted, this was the first conversation since the release of the special counsels report, which found that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion. Thats an interesting piece of trivia, but is it really newsworthy or surprising that Trump would phone the president of Russia? I mean, they were bound to talk, eventually. Is he now never supposed to call the Russian leader, again? Granted, the fact that a phone call happened might not have been terribly newsworthy, in and …
