We’ve got the most buzzed about Millennial news from the past week to keep you in-the-know, so don’t miss it!
1. Newborn Style Star
Let’s face it: the wardrobes of some kids these days are rivaling those of established celebrities (see: “Hide and Go (Style)” and “Mini Street Style”) We introduced you to Alonso Mateo, the 5-year-old Instagram fashion icon, but what happens when you’re born into celebrity status? Don’t miss the latest swag gifted to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s baby girl North, from besties Givenchy, Céline, Alexander Wang, and Lanvin. In the last few years, a number of high fashion designers have launched children’s collections, capitalizing on the growing market of luxury ready-to-wear for kids.
2. Binging That Brings Us Together
TV binge viewing has become a part of youth culture, and networks must begin to understand that Netflix, Hulu, DVR and other platforms are not the enemy. Oftentimes cable is the first luxury cord cut for young adults living on their own, so don’t miss this testimonial from Flavorwire which reasons that lack of cable has actually brought viewers together rather than isolate them. In the height of Breaking Bad’s final episode, those without cable gathered together in local bars and friends’ living rooms to tune in and revel in the excitement, cheering much like a football crowd on a Sunday afternoon.
3. Pinterest: The Ultimate Wedding Planner
Pinterest has evolved from a simple image sharing website to a lucrative sales tools, and as pins are being turned into purchases, pin boards are making real life fantasies come true. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, check out this heartwarming story of a man who used his then girlfriend’s Pinterest boards to plan and execute her dream wedding, proposing and marrying her in one whirlwind day. Social networks like Pinterest have become everything from wedding planners to home decorators and stylists, making it easier than ever for friends and loved ones to know what’s on your wishlist.
4. Fandom Takes to Short Film
We put the spotlight on three Millennial filmmakers who were selected to premier their works at the All American High School Film Festival this weekend, and we also don’t want you to miss the fan-made short film that has been making the internet rounds to bring Wonder Woman back to the big screen. Racking up almost 4 million views in a matter of days, it’s apparent that there’s genuine interest for a Wonder Woman re-make. Batman enthusiasts changed our minds about Ben Affleck with a fan made trailer for his new movie, so maybe this short will convince Hollywood to start the project.
5. Links We’re Passing
The government has had its fair share of scandal this week, between yesterday’s White House security breach and the first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years. Political issues often mean problems for the general public, so we’re here to take your mind off things by showing you how the government shutdown is “exactly like ‘Mean Girls.’” Lindsay Lohan, we could use your expertise here.
