Let her latest stunt be a lesson to all designers

We’re not sure why Tiffany Trump was even invited to a New York Fashion Week show this time around, seeing as she can't go to one without causing a scene. Last season, her rep emailed Harper’s Magazine instead of Harper’s Bazaar while trying to get her an invite to the Harper's Bazaar Icons party, and the season before, her attendance at the Phillipp Plein show (rightly) sparked controversy. Now, it’s her lack of appearance that caused a scene.

On Saturday, the first daughter was set to attend Taoray Wang’s runway show. She was so late to arrive that she held up the catwalk for a full 45 minutes. Like, we get being a little late (the traffic during NYFW is a nightmare and the shows are back-to-back), but 45 minutes is just way too much.

Lack of punctuality does seem to run in the family: Donald Trump caught flack for being late for a meeting with Queen Elizabeth, and he has missed the deadline for reuniting the immigrant families that his administration has cruelly separated.

Note to designers: Inviting anyone from the first family isn’t the smartest idea. Maybe stick to celebrities.

Well, sorta

Grimes delighted us to no end when she posted her fantastical training "regiment" while promoting her new campaign for Adidas by Stella McCartney. And while we knew that somewhere out there, some dedicated blogger would have to try it out for the clicks, we also knew it wasn't going to be us. All to say, this is why we were able to take total joy in seeing Deadspin writer Patrick Redford's dedication to following Grimes' list of tasks step-by-step, from astro-gliding into other dimensions and screaming his way into Grimes' peak condition. Fun!

HBO dropped the ball on this one

Game of Thrones may have snagged a record number of Emmy nominations, but it's not all thanks to HBO putting its stars up for the awards. Instead, Gwendoline Christie—aka Ser Brienne of Tarth—submitted her own name for consideration via her agent after HBO failed to do so on her behalf. And, naturally, the Emmys recognized her incredible performance and nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series along fellow GoT castmates Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Lena Headey. Be your own biggest fan, and it might just end up paying off!

My interest level has peaked with this new clip

I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, and that's putting it nicely. So all of the fuss about the new Cats movie that she's starring in has been intentionally off of my radar.

It's pricey, but hear us out

Co-captain of US women's national soccer team and queen of fire hair looks Megan Rapinoe has to keep up with that purple mane just like the rest of us colored-hair folk. Maintaining hair that vivid can be difficult, to say the least, but not impossible—especially when you have a good colorist. Unsurprisingly, Rapinoe's is one of the best. According to a press release, expert colorist and balayage specialist Richard Drews keeps Rapinoe's hair cool-toned and vibrant using Kérastase Blond Absolu Masque Ultra-Violet which is like your favorite purple shampoo times 10.
