#SocialGathering: "Shrobing" Is Taking Street Style by Storm; Justin Trudeau's Latest Viral Photo Isn't of His Face
And Ken "BoneZone" Bone is back at CPAC 2017.
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.
"Shrobing" Is Back
Spotted on tastemakers like Eva Chen, Bryanboy and Caroline Vreeland, the half-off/half-on street style "lewk" is catching on. For spring 2017, Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia showed oversized jackets, draped to be worn off-the-shoulder. Kim Kardashian rocked the avant-garde look last fall at Paris Fashion Week before her unfortunate robbery. ASAP Rocky, styled by Matthew Henson, rocked the look at NYFW while heading into Raf Simon’s inaugural Calvin Klein show. Other rappers, like Travis Scott and Kanye West, have long favored the look. But keep in mind: This look causes "T.rex arms" and will not keep you warm. Thirty-somethings may recall primary-school days when the cool kids rocked their Starter jackets off-the-shoulder. What goes around comes back around.
Justin Trudeau's Bubble Butt
Women have a hard time keeping their cool around the Canadian prime minister, including Ivanka Trump and German PM Angela Merkel. His devastatingly handsome face has been hard to ignore — until journalist Joe Reid tweeted out a photo of something else. You’re welcome!
The Bone Is Back
Ken Bone, the undecided voter that launched dozens of viral memes after his question at the second presidential debate last fall, is back. The BoneZone (he actually calls himself that) made multiple appearances at today's Conservative Political Action Conference wearing his infamous sweater.
Cate Blanchett, Drag Queen
Cate Blanchett’s fierceness never ceases to amaze. The Oscar-winning actress went full drag at Greenwich Village’s legendary Stonewall Inn, birthplace of the gay-rights movement in NYC. The actress looked incredibly glamorous while lip-syncing Dusty Springfield’s “You Don’t Own Me.” How far we've come: It was once illegal to serve alcohol to men who were going to dance together, if you can believe that.
President Barack Obama treated his daughter Malia to dinner at SoHo hotspot Emilio’s Ballato this week. Malia currently resides in NYC, working as an intern at The Weinstein Co. The former president, fresh off a vacation, has never looked better, happily posing for a photo with staff. He was greeted by a crowd of 100-plus supporters, clapping and reminding him that he is missed.
Caitlyn Jenner Has Some Words for Donald
High-profile Republican and transgender star Caitlyn Jenner wants President Donald Trump to call her for help with his growing problem with the LGBT community in the wake of his decision to rescind an order allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice. Jenner ends her video plea telling Trump to call her, adding a warning: "See you in court!"
I have a message for the trans kids of America. You are winning. I know it doesn’t feel that way today or every day, but you _ are _ winning. You are going to keep on winning so much you’re going to get sick of winning. Very soon, we'll win full freedom nationwide, and it’s going to happen with bipartisan support. For all our friends out there, If you want to be part of this winning side, you can help by checking out the National Center for Trans Equality and letting Washington hear how you feel loud and clear. (Link in bio!) Now…I also have a message for the bullies. You suck. You’re losers and you’re going to keep on losing. Because you’re weak, you pick on kids or you pick on women or anyone you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the Attorney General isn’t enough to cure some of you of your insecurity. As proof that you can’t stop our progress, the Supreme Court will soon hear an important Title Nine case thanks to the courage of a brave young man named Gavin Grimm. See you in court!
