I believe the children are our future. I’ve never believed it more than while watching footage of North West at the Jean Paul Gaultier show during Paris Haute Couture Week.

The 9-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was front row at several Paris fashion shows this season, rocking a slew of big street style fits. But as much as I adore her style, her hair, her big sunglasses (we’ll get back to this later), nothing was more show-stopping than her viral moment: holding a sign that said “STOP” to the paparazzi.

Surprise! The #Kravis Wedding was Problematic

Why Dolce & Gabbana is a brand you should NOT support — here are some queer companies you should check out instead

Kris Jenner is a mastermind. Say what you will about her — my litany of grievances is far-far too long to air here — but she’s good at her job. Unfortunately for us (not her, she’s rich!), her chief roles and responsibilities include profiting from attention, scandal, and dare we mention controversy.

The latest eye-roll-inducing — but no doubt highly lucrative— publicity stunt orchestrated by Kris Jenner is none other than her daughter’s branded wedding. Yes, you heard that right. Branded. Wedding. And the brand of choice? None other than the ceaselessly problematic Dolce & Gabbana.

What Happened at the Oscars?

The Best Dressed List from the 2022 Academy Awards and the Vanity Fair Afterparty

As a metric for which movies matter, award shows are obsolete.

How many of us watched all — if any — of the nominated films? And how many of us — if any — agreed with the nominations, let alone the Academy’s seemingly arbitrary rulings? All of it seems arbitrary. The culture — aka the internet — decides what has staying power. And time decides what’s truly tasteful.
