Emmy's Superlatives 2017: Most Likely to...

Another year, another Emmy's that I didn't watch.  But you can guarantee that I reviewed all "Every Red-Carpet Look from the 2017 Emmy's" content.  FYI: Vulture has the best recap.  The Cut didn't even have Issa Rae or Tracee Ellis Ross' looks.  Talk about incomplete.  But if you're looking for Emmy's superlatives, the "Most Likely to Steal Yo Girl" looks, you've come to the right place.  And without further ado, Otis Unfiltered's Guide to the 2017 Emmy's.

Most PERFECT: Zoe Kravitz
Unlike the Met Gala, the Emmy’s are not typically known for out-of-the-box fashion.  I’ve come to expect less Rosie Assouline maximalism and more Oscar de la Renta elegance.  Which is why Zoe Kravitz’s daring feathered Christian Dior Couture gown really resonated with me.  She consistently nails the delicate balance of calculated glamour and nonchalance. TEACH ME YOUR WAYS!

Weekly Web Roundup

Inspired by the Man Repeller's "the best of the Internet" and Cupcake and Cashmere's "Links I Love," I'm bringing you six of my favorite articles, gifs and videos from the week.  I hope you find the links as equally inspiring and thought provoking as I have.

1. Black Teens Are Breaking the Internet and Seeing None of the Profits: I had already planned to share this article when then The Fat Jewish literally stole my brother's content as his own.  Is comedic appropriation the new cultural appropriation?

2. Samantha Irby's unofficial Sociology of White People 101 will make your sides split, trust me.  "But with every politely declined camping invitation and spat out mouthful of roasted beets, it became that much clearer to me that, despite my penchant for craft beers and J.Jill knit cardigans, I AM NOT WHITE."  

3.  Just when you thoughts media outlets sensationalizing trends with obscure names like normcore was over, New York Magazine coins "gorpcore" as the new frontier.  Think Patagonia fleeces, North Face puffers and Birkenstock sandals for a crowd whose idea of outdoorsy is the Hamptons.

4. What does it mean for a society and its willingness to address income inequality when wealth is as stigmatized as masturbation?  

5. Modern Love always gets me.  "Finding God in a Hot Slice of Pizza" is no different.

Hey It's Okay

Welcome to "Hey, It's Okay," inspired by Glamour Magazine's eponymous column and podcast, where I publicly expose things I probably should be more embarrassed to admit.  So without further ado, here's a list of behaviors I'm willing to publicly defend (previous edition here).

  1. To use Solo cups because you didn’t realize quite how painful living without a dishwasher would be.
  2. To watch graduation speeches when you’re feeling uninspired.  Nothing like remembering when everyone reminded you that you are the future!  Highlights: Steve Jobs' 2005 Commencement address at Stanford and Bryan Stevenson's 2016 Commencement address at Williams College.
  3. To follow babies on Instagram.  I'm looking at you @asahadkhaled and @diegodaviddowd.  Okay, so the latter may require some explanation.  He's the son of Rajni Jacques, Teen Vogue's Fashion Director and is just adorable beyond words.
