It’s been a big week for fashion: Paris couture shows, celebrities on boats, America setting off fireworks to acknowledge being more plagued with an institutionally racist, xenophobic infrastucture than ever before.
Let us reflect upon some of the most visually appealing outfits of the week, from sizzling summer sweat to high fashion Parisian eleganza extravaganza realness. Enjoy!
Padma Lakshmi’s Fourth of July Cake
Her post came with information on fighting Trump’s racist immigration policies. And her denim dress is our nomination for the new Supreme Court uniform.
For this Fourth of July, I made a cake with my daughter. Today thousands of mothers across the country are not able to be with their children because of Trump’s inhumane zero-tolerance immigration policy- they are still displaced, lost in a sea of red tape. If you can, send a donation to the @aclu_nationwide or @raicestexas to help reunite them with their loved ones. (Oh and #LittleHands did the piping) #KeepFamiliesTogether #FourthofJuly
Guo Pei’s Fall 18 Couture Show
We love Pei’s architectural new runway collection, which combines grand domes and temples with haute couture.
Penelope Cruz Front Row at Chanel
Cruz was named the new face of Chanel at the Paris Couture show this week – and she looked fab doing it.
Tracee Ellis Ross With Valentino Models
Tracee looks amazing. The models look amazing. We want to go to this place and spend the rest of our days wearing these floral headpieces.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez With Her Constituents
Her suit is nice, but we mostly just want to continue recognizing Ocasio-Cortez’s triumphant victory for a Congressional seat.
Our organizers increased voter turnout by *68%* in the Bronx and Queens! 68% MORE people voted than they did in the last similar election. Because we knocked on their doors and refused to count them out. . We need to be reaching out and talking to EVERYBODY. Just because someone hasn’t voted in a primary before, doesn’t mean they won’t in the future. . Reach out to everyone you possibly can.
Troye and Ariana Promoting Their Single
And looking very good as they do.
