Now this is what you wear to an awards ceremony

At last night's Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly (ESPY) Awards in Los Angeles, the U.S. Women's soccer team graced the stage to accept their award for Best Team. At the same time, co-captain Megan Rapinoe introduced me to my new favorite formal summer trend: leather shorts. As a queer girl who kind of really hates formal dresses, I'm about to show up at every event rocking this style.


Rapinoe attended the awards ceremony wearing Bermuda-length leather Coach shorts, paired, no less, with a buttoned blazer with no shirt underneath. I'm sweating, this outfit looks so good.

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.
