Top 5 Bae’s of 2016


Our fave fella’s of 2016, enjoy!


1. Drake

No one can deny that ‘One Dance’ was the hit of the year and Drake’s success has been rising up ever since! He’s cute, talented, funny and if the Hotline Bling video proved anything, he’s also clearly an excellent dancer… Love ya Drizzy!



2. Zayn Malik

Because, obviously. Not only is Zayn a total bae, he took the independent leap into a solo career this year and it more than worked out for him! Not only did he release a hit single ‘Pillow Talk’ in 2016 but his superstar girlfriend, Gigi Hadid starred in the video with him. Talk about a power couple?! We predict even bigger things for this gorge guy in 2017.


3. Kit Harington

I know fellow Game of Thrones fans feel me on this one, and are probably also looking at photos of Jon Snow weekly to fill the void until the next season of GOT begins next year. We don’t know if its his divine accent, the luscious curls or a mixture of everything (defo), but the man is just undeniably DREAMY.


 4. Justin Bieber

Love him or hate him, the man’s a hunk and Purpose was one banger of an album.


5. Jamie Dornan

I mean…. Is an explanation even needed?

Top 5 Girl Crushes of the Year!

A hard one to narrow down with so many glam gals on the scene this year, but we tried our best to round-up our top 5 girl crushes of the 2016 below!



1. Gigi Hadid

Hardly surprising really, it’s no secret that we (and the whole world tbh) are obsessed with Gigi in the Dresses HQ! Not only is she insanely stunning, she’s such a sweet soul with killer off-duty style! Her career is also going from strength-to-strength, gracing nearly every campaign and fashion show this year. Overall #goals, basically. Keep slaying Gigi!


2. Rihanna

Ri has had such an incredible year! ‘Work’ was the hit of 2016, topping charts all over the world, passing out  her fellow artists for the no.1 spot. Not only did Rihanna kill the music game this year, she took the fashion industry by storm with her Fenty x Puma Read-to-Wear Collection that showed on the runway of Paris Fashion Week in September. We couldn’t help but giggle at Rihanna’s own description of the collection – describing it as “If Marie Antoinette was going to the gym and needed something to wear”. Gas!

Humour, style, talent and Drake as an admirer… Life’s not bad for Rihanna!


3. Kendall Jenner

Another not-so-surprising choice, but Kendall is just TOO cool not to include! The girl has worked damn hard this year, with magazine covers & campaigns all over the world and the 2016 VS Fashion Show under her belt. Alongside her best pal Gigi (BFF Goals), the cute pair are clearly blowing UP the fashion scene and we love seeing them slay at everything they do! Kendall is also our absolute style ICON…so complete package much?


4. Beyonce

You all saw it coming… and, we ain’t sorry. Queen Bey rules all forever, duh!


5. Laura Whitmore

For our  final girl crush of 2016 it has to be fellow Irish girl, the beauty Laura Whitmore! Not only has her style game been amaze this year, her career has gone from strength-to-strength, doing the Irish super proud with her amazing performances and dancing skills on Strictly Come Dancing! We see 2017 being another great year for Laura and can’t wait to see where it takes her!

Top 5 Fashion Moments of 2016!

2016 was an exciting and eventful year for the fashion world and we decided to round-up 5 of our top moments, enjoy!

1. Gigi & Bella Hadid Walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show


#SisterGoals! The gorge siblings became the first ever sisters to walk at the same Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, strutting down the runway in Paris on Dec 5th. They both looked divine (no surprises there), exhumed confidence and absolutely slayed the show! While Gigi is a VS veteran, it was Bella’s first time to walk in the show – when speaking about the pride and happiness they felt for each other, it’s obvious emotion over came them. How sweet!!

2. Kendall Jenner – Covergirl


What a year for this gal – She graced not 1, not 4, but 7 Vogue covers this year!! With each cover as stunning as the last, there’s no doubt  in our mind that her success will keep growing in 2017!

3. 90s Fashion Revival


Perhaps the biggest trend of 2016 was the revival of 90s fashion nostalgia which infiltrated it’s way across the entire fashion scene. From high end to high street, 90s threads became cool again, with slip dresses, grunge looks & chokers at the forefront of the revival. So many celebs took to this trend instantly, stepping out in the cutest slip dresses, crop tops and off-the-shoulder numbers. We’re personally loving this 90s comeback and hope it sticks around in 2017!

4. Gigi Hadid Wins Model of the Year 2016 Award


Is there no end to this girls amazingness!? Not only was she the face of almost every campaign and collection this year, she also won Model of the Year at the 2016 British Fashion Awards! Nominated alongside Kendall Jenner and her very own little sister Bella Hadid, Gigi understandably was overcome with emotion when accepting the award, extending her gratitude to the fashion industry -“Thank you for being the most amazing industry I could ever ask to be a part of.” With past winners of the award including the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne, we reckon Gigi is set for world domination in 2017!



Beyonce kicked off 2016 with a storm – dropping her massive hit ‘Formation’ that left us all glued to the screen playing the video over & over, taking in the fashion, eagerly adding SLAY to our vocabulary and genuinely obsessing over her overall amazingness….THEN she hit us with Lemonade and we well and truly lost it!! This year Queen Bey has strongly established herself as an artist, a feminist icon and style queen – winning the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year award in June. She’s also ending the year with the title of the most Grammy nominated female artist in history, no big deal right?! We have no doubt Bey will slay her way to 2017.

Celeb Dramz of the Year


While we can’t believe 2016 is nearly over (emmm where did November & December even go?!), we’re even more shocked by all the goss and scandal that unfolded over the last 12 months! When it comes to celeb drama, we have to admit that we love to watch it unfold. So enjoy our round-up of some of the biggest Celeb Dramaz of 2016 below!


1. Kim & Kanye vs. Taylor Swift

We all watched the drama unfold, none of us could look away! Probably the most memorable celeb feud of 2016 is that of Kanye West & Kim K vs. Taylor Swift. Things started to escalate when Kim K threw major shade and took to Snapchat to upload footage of Taylor Swift giving Kanye permission over the phone to use a line featuring her name in a song. The situation blew up quickly as just a short while before Kim posted the footage, Tay had publicly stated she never gave Kanye permission to use her name. This feud caused major drama and fans ate it up, dividing themselves into Team Tay or K. With all the shady tweets and comments that followed from both sides, we’re still eagerly awaiting what’s to come. What team are you on?!


2. Becky With The Good Hair?

Queen Bey’s drop of her AMAZE visual album ‘Lemonade’ this year left us speechless, but also with SO many questions! A clear running theme throughout the album was infidelity, with Bey insinuating she was dealing with personal relationship problems. One song in particular left fans filled with curiosity, dying to know just exactly who this ‘Becky with the good hair’ gal is and if she rocked Bey and Jay’s relationship, but the secret was never revealed. Drama aside, Lemonade SLAYED.


 3. Calvin Harris vs. Taylor Swift

Taylor makes a second appearance in our 2016 round-up, this time for her split with boyfriend Calvin Harris and the drama that unfolded shortly after! At first the split ended seemingly on good terms, with Calvin sweetly tweeting about their continued love & respect for each other. Sounds mature, right? Shortly after this, the situation blew up for poor Tay again. It was only when she was seen with new love interest Tom Hiddelston that their amicable relationship turned sour. Calvin took to Twitter to delete his sweet break-up tweet, blocked Taylor on all social media and THEN ranted about her through harsh tweets, even referencing her feud with Katy Perry. The two have since wiped their social media clean of any trace of their relationship. Ouch!!



4. Blac Chyna & The Kardashians

There’s clearly never a dull moment in the Kardash household and the arrival of Blac Chyna as Rob Kardashian’s new girlfriend was no different! It was weird from the get-go, with Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Tyga being the father of Blac Chyna’s child, King Cairo. (Em, awkward?) From there the drama spiraled between Rob and Chyna’s on/off again relationship and clashes with the rest of the Kardashians. Amidst the drama, the couple got engaged, seemingly made peace with Rob’s family and Chyna became pregnant, welcoming their child Dream to the world in November! The drama didn’t stop here, ofcourse. Chyna recently took Dream (and the nursery furniture…), leaving Rob suddenly without explanation, where he then took to Instagram to express his confusion and sadness over it all. The pair have reportedly gotten back together, perhaps a little too conveniently, just before their reality TV show Rob and Chyna airs. We just don’t know where they get the energy for it all?!


5. Kim Kardashian Robbery

TBH, we’re still a bit shocked at this one! In early October while attending Paris Fashion Week, Kim was held at gunpoint and robbed in her hotel room. While Kim was luckily left physically unharmed, this terrifying event involved two masked men dressed as police officers who proceeded to enter her hotel room and raid Kim’s jewellery box while she was tied up and gagged, stealing a gross of $10 million, including Kim’s wedding ring. The robbery understandably left Kim terrified and afraid, choosing to lay low in the weeks that followed. Our heat goes out to Kim and her family!

So all in all, a v dramatic year… Who knows if 2017 can top it?!
