#SocialGathering: David Beckham's Juice-y Secret; "OverheardLA" Is Angelenos' Guilty Pleasure
And Liev Schreiber celebrated his Emmy nom in an unconventional fashion.
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.
David Beckham’s Juice Spot
Heads up, L.A. residents — we have your new favorite spot to grab juice. Beverly Hills Juice Club on Beverly Blvd got a major shout out this week from the one-and-only David Beckham. Opened in 1975, Beverly Hills Juice Club is known for its legendary Banana Manna shakes (banana blended with almond, cacao or sunflower). The sports star and all around hot guy rarely posts his favorite haunts (to keep the paparazzi at bay), so he must have been in the “safe zone” when he posted this one.
OverheardLA Is So L.A.
@OverheadLA, the must-follow IG account of the moment, happens to be all about life in Los Angeles. Fun! Users submit eavesdropped conversations or screenshots of texts over email or DM, which are then posted to the account. With only-heard-in-L.A. quips such as, “I get the best Molly from the valet at The Cheesecake Factory” or “We only dated for 11 Instagrams,” people outside of Los Angeles might possibly be able to relate? Hello? Maybe not.
#LievSchreiber Celebrates Emmy Nom
Liev Schreiber celebrated his Emmy nomination for best lead actor in a drama for Ray Donovan as anyone would — by posting a photo of himself riding a white Vespa. If you’re a fan of the understated men’s style icon, Schreiber often tweets book recommendations as well as scoops from the Ray Donovan set. Can’t wait to see what Schreiber wears to this year’s Emmys — last year’s look was a Hudson blue wool blend two-button notch lapel tuxedo, white dress shirt and black bow tie from the fall 2015 Calvin Klein Collection.
Gigi Hadid's Vogue Cover Acceptance Speech
Supermodel Gigi Hadid is blessed, you guys. The 21-year-old posted a lengthy acceptance speech upon the release of her first American Vogue cover. Shot by Mario Testino, Hadid starred in a full editorial with Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton. Did she thank EIC Anna Wintour? Of course — simply referring to her as “Anna.” Agent? Yup. Equestrian trainer? Yes. Fans? Genetics? YES! So blessed.
An ultimate dream come true, I am beyond humbled. Shooting my first American @voguemagazine cover, in my hometown, was so surreal. And to be able to share it with Olympic Gold Medalist and my new friend #AshtonEaton is such an honor. I couldn't think of a cover I'd rather be on than the one celebrating athletics. Being an athlete has brought so much pride and joy to my life and has instilled the work ethic that still drives me every day. To Anna, @mariotestino, @tonnegood & everyone at Vogue- thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me, teaching me, showing me the world, and being such a pleasure to work with. To @luizmattos1906 and my @imgmodels family, I don't thank you guys enough- I appreciate you so much. We did it!!!!!!! This one's dedicated to my biggest inspirations to work hard, my family, to all my coaches throughout my life and of course to the fans that have stuck by me from the start!!! Feeling extremely blessed. x
Lena Dunham Changes the Caption Game
Lena Dunham accomplished no easy feat on Instagram — she posted two sequential posts with a connected story and captions. Leading with, “I do my own stunts” and followed by, “But seriously I tripped on my flip-flop,” the writer knows what she’s doing. Will dual-Instagram posting become a thing? Only time will tell, but standing out in a crowd is crucial on the app. The key is to have both photos and captions prepped so you can post them one right after the other.
Beauty newcomer Glossier announced via social media that _Generation G is now back in stock, much to fans' delight. The brand that launched on social media as an extension of Emily Weiss’ Into the Gloss site, has sold out of every single product launch upon release. _Generation G is “a new kind of lip color that gives the look and finish of a stain, but glides on and wears like a tinted balm.” With shades named Cake (nude), Like (pink), Jam (purplish-pink) and Crush (magenta), there’s something for everyone.
Social Currency Is the New Money
Social media-only publication Obsessee partnered with The Grove for #ObsesseeIRL: A 3-day pop-up shop that only accepts "social currency” (i.e. Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram posts). Special Moleskine x Obsessee notebooks, Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater and a FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 camera are just some of the goods available for purchase. Watch the video below for how to shop the store, it’s that easy.
Olivier Theyskens Returns, Lauren Santo Domingo Rejoices
Caption queen and Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo announced on her Instagram that Olivier Theyskens has finally made his return to fashion with a namesake line. The Vogue contributing editor and designer go way back — you may recall Theyskens made LSD’s wedding gown for her nuptials to Andres Santo Domingo on a private island in Colombia. Theyskens famously took a pair of scissors to her post-nuptials party dress after the bride couldn’t decide whether she wanted a long or short gown.
McKayla Maroney’s Not Impressed
Gymnast McKayla Maroney isn’t competing in the Rio Olympics this year, but she’s competing for the gold for “most talked-about Instagram of a gold medal winner” without a doubt. With nearly 1M followers, the Olympian has a remarkable resemblance to Kylie Jenner and posts similar photos — leaning against walls, looking off to the side in full glam. Followers are hounding the 20-year-old with questions about plastic surgery rumors in the comments, leaving Maroney to post the below photo with the caption: "me thinking about how to get my face to look like i've never done anything to my face when i've never done anything to my face.”
3 Tips to More Followers
This week, The Hollywood Reporter released their annual digital issue starring Selena Gomez, Kevin Hart and Instagram’s Kevin Systrom on the cover. Lucky for you, the two social media stars shared their top three tips to get more followers. Hart’s a fan of posting a butt pic: “Honey, I need your thong so I get my followers up.” There you go.
