Taylor Swift Is Instagram’s New Queen

Peasants, it’s time to get on bended knee and bow to your new Instagram overlord. Late last month, Kim Kardashian was announced as the most followed celebrity on Instagram, beating out Beyoncé for what is likely the first and only time in her life. But the reality TV star barely had time to bask in the glory, now that her crown has been effectively snatched by newly-minted feminist Taylor Swift.


Awwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs

No Surprises Here: Kim, Kendall and Kylie Rule Social Media ]

The singer currently boasts 45.6 million followers on Instagram, while Kardashian remains at a steady 45.5. Queen Bey still stands at 45 million followers, which is more than enough. Taylor Swift is one of the most popular celebrities out there, so it’s no surprise that her Instagram page would reflect that. Besides, what red-blooded human being doesn’t like browsing through images of a girl who is best friends with almost every celebrity that ever walked the earth, including Jesus Christ and the Loch Ness Monster?

Whose parents will Sam meet? It’s the last group date at a Sydney beach house, and, well, doesn’t Sam look cute in his tartan shirt and vest?

Guess who’s first up? Yep, it’s Lana. But will she come first? That’s the real question. What do we all think about Lana, the “intruder”, if you will?

Is it fair that she has come in at this late stage? Does she have the right to be there? Nina doesn’t think so, but I, on the other hand, don’t think it wouldn’t even matter if she came in on the very last week. Everyone deserves love and should have an equal right to love. What do you all think? (more…)

Zac Posen Delves Into Wearable Tech with an LED Dress

Zac Posen and Google combined tech and fashion for the Spring 2016 season in a way you wouldn’t expect. No, the designer didn’t debut a new Google Glass or smartwatch. Instead, Posen and the tech giant got together with the help of creative technologist Maddy Maxey and Google’s Made with Code initiative to create a dress festooned with LED lights inspired by Los Angeles at night. The dress, which closed the Zac by Zac Posen runway earlier today, was coded by Maxey.

Modeled by Coco Rocha, the dress is black with short sleeves and a mesh skirt, dotted with tiny lights. The dress design was programmed to display different animations, so the look changes without the wearer having to take anything off. Made with Code is a project to help encourage more girls to get into the tech industry, which is famously lacking women. By getting girls interested in technology early, Google hopes to help boost the number of women in the industry for future generations.

Watch Coco twirl while the dress blinks and twinkles in all its glory above.
