  • Meryl Streep and Cher's kiss is one of the few good things to happen in forever

    It was the kiss heard round the world — or on gay tumblr. Listen, the news cycle is bleak and things have been dark for the the LGBTQ community for a long, long time. So forgive the community if we got a little too excited this week when queer icons Cher and Meryl Streep exchanged a smooch at the <em>Mamma Mia</em> premiere. It was everyone's awkward celebrity fantasy come true. SEE ALSO: Cher loves Paddington Bear, and I love both of them, so it all works out I know, I know, Cher and Meryl aren't technically a "thing." But that doesn't mean I can't go to a beautiful, imaginary place in my head where these two have a romantic queer future. Cher and Meryl are made to buy a brownstone in the West Village together, wear matching pussyhats to anti-Trump protests, and adopt a dolphin named after their favorite intersectional feminist hero. Bless these two for this— it's LGBTQ history in the making.  The queer internet agrees: Holy water is Cher and Meryl Streep’s shared spit. — Alex Schmider (@anderfinn) July 17, 2018 everytime meryl streep and cher kiss the gays get 100x stronger — freddie (@sorryimpudge) July 17, 2018 Trump denied us a Pride Month proclamation for the second year in a row so God blessed us with a picture of Cher and Meryl Streep kissing. — Gabe #DreamActNow Ortíz (@TUSK81) July 20, 2018 Meryl Streep and Cher kissing is gay rights — mary queen of thots (@CarlyRaePrEPsen) July 16, 2018 There's a lot of awful stuff happening to the queer community right now. Trans students' rights are in jeopardy. Hate crimes are up. Some LGBTQ activists even worry for the future of same-sex marriage in the U.S. It would be great if we had leadership that actually protected and expanded the community's rights, but until then, we'll have this moment tattooed to our tender queer hearts.

  • The 'calculated' choice Jennifer Garner, Jane Fonda, and more actresses over 40 made at the Oscars

    At the Oscars on Sunday night, we got an eyeful of the trendy shades of spring — pastels and nudes — adorned with ruffles, lace, and fringe, as there were stars whose sequins and jewels shone as brightly as the show’s bedazzled stage. But the women we often couldn’t take our eyes off were the ones in bright reds, deep blues, stark whites, and one bright Barbie pink — all bold shades worn by actresses over 40. The reason behind this wise choice is a hot tip we might all want to remember.“We were aiming for bold, proud, strong, happy!” stylist Elizabeth Stewart tells Yahoo Style about&nbsp;Viola Davis’s sequined pink gown from Michael Kors Collection. “And not conforming to Oscar red carpet expectations and norms.”Pink was an unexpected choice, but choosing to emphasize color is not, according to style and beauty expert Mary Alice Stephenson, founder of Glam4Good. The red of Meryl Streep’s plunging custom-made Christian Dior&nbsp;and Allison Janney’s Reem Acra, and the blue of Jennifer Garner’s Atelier Versace and Nicole Kidman’s Armani Privé, were calculated moves by red carpet veterans, she says.“These women all look fresh because they kept it clean and simple and all used color and shape for drama,” Stephenson says. “If you have too much going on — the over-the-top hairdos, tons of jewelry and tons of adornment on your dress — it actually ages you.”After years of awards shows and premieres, there’s probably no cut, style, or designer these actresses haven’t tried. They no longer need to experiment, and they know exactly what fits on their body.“They know that fit is everything at the Oscars,” Stephenson says. “You can have the most stunning dress, but if it doesn’t fit you right, you’ll be attacked. It won’t work.”This doesn’t mean actresses over a certain age need to wear the same style over and over. Rather, they can choose to make statements that emphasize their best assets, as&nbsp;Jane Fonda did in her figure-hugging white Balmain gown with its strong shoulders and edgy neckline.Younger stars have extra pressure to prove themselves in the fashion world, Stephenson explains, which is why they go in for the dresses straight from the runway. “Some of the younger women are vying for attention from fashion houses to get ad campaigns, or they are in ad campaigns,” she says.Those of us (of any age) watching from home who won’t be hitting the red carpet anytime soon can learn something important from this: When in doubt, choose color.“The truth is that often nude and those kind of colors don’t do much for skin like red or blue does, or even white,” Stephenson says. Or even, if you dare, Barbie pink.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle:&nbsp;Follow us on&nbsp;Instagram,&nbsp;Facebook, and&nbsp;Twitter&nbsp;for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Update: Chanel Responds To Meryl Streep Oscars Dress Drama

    Update, 7:45 p.m.: Chanel has issued a statement to Refinery29 about the dress situation, which backtracks from designer Karl Lagerfeld's earlier comments to WWD. The fashion house clarified that "no mention of the reason" for Streep's decision to wear a dress from a different designer was given.

  • Meryl Streep Won’t Be Wearing Chanel to the Oscars

    While most designers would drop everything to dress Meryl Streep, count Karl Lagerfeld out. According to Chanel’s head designer and creative director, the actress was enamored with a gray silk gown from the brand’s most recent couture collection and wanted to wear it to the Oscars on Sunday night, just with a few adjustments, including a higher neckline. It is against her ethics and simply is not true.” Streep is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins.
