#SocialGathering: Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift Have Bad Blood, Saint West is Seriously Cute
Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what the stars have been up to this week on social media.
Beyonce-Style Dress Reveal
Gone are the days when your prom date awkwardly handed over a corsage under Dad’s watchful eye, now it’s all about the epic dress reveal. One Beyhive member got her friends and family in formation for her big dress reveal on prom night. It's impossible to read if her date was bored or embarrassed, but after keeping him waiting three-plus minutes, it’s safe to say all she did was delay versus slay.
Love You Like a Love Song, Audrey!
Selena Gomez and Audrey Nethery, a 7-year-old girl with a rare bone marrow disease, danced together, winning over the hearts of 8.3 million Instagram users (and counting). In what is arguably a frontrunner for cutest Instagram video of 2016, Selena slithered down to Audrey’s level in a Guns N’ Roses tee and leggings, whipping her bangs to enviable perfection. All the feels.
Saint West, son of Kanye and Kim, was unofficially canonized as one of the cutest celebrity babies after Kim posted this Snap. The new photo of the 6-month-old West child nearly broke the Internet, just like his momma.
Kylie and Tyga Instagram Madness
It’s impossible to keep up with Kylie and Tyga’s relationship, especially when the exes post and delete so often. Tyga, ex of Kylie’s half-brother Rob's fiancee Blac Chyna, instagrammed Kylie in tears with a massive diamond ring, captioning the photo: “They always come back.” The photo has since been deleted, and Kylie hasn’t graced the Internet with a relationship status update. The world is waiting with breath that is bated …
Calvin Harris and Tay Tay’s Bad Blood
This is what you came for … After Taylor Swift was spotted getting cozy with Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris broke the cardinal rule of social media: "Thou Shalt Not Overshare Post-Breakup.” Fans of Harris poured into his Instagram, expressing sympathy over the breakup, but his (many) bitter responses have since been deleted. Shake it off, Calvin.
The Bigger the Hoops … the Cooler the Girl.
It's no secret that designer Jennifer Fisher is THE go-to jeweler for the coolest girls in the world — her enviable lifestyle is a favorite follow in the Instagram fashion community. Looking at Fisher’s feed, the hoop game is coming back, with Selena Gomez, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rihanna rocking the JF 3” Gold Square Wire Hoops, undoubtedly a hot item upon their mid-July release. Michael Jordan still has his hoop earring in, after all. Preorder here.

Gigi to the Max
Gigi Hadid posted her latest ad for Max Mara on Instagram this week, introducing a younger set to the Italian brand previously reserved for women looking for an elegant cashmere coat. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, with makeup by Pat McGrath and photographed by Steven Meisel, a power trio who bring the chic.
Dennis Graham, the proud father of Champagne Papi, is a must-follow. You may remember Dennis from Drake’s video “Worse Behavior.” His simple, to-the-point captions are so hilarious that his own son will screenshot and regram, often. A fan of Tatum O’Neal, travel and Drake memes — what’s not to like?
