The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Oscars Fashion 2017: First Impressions
The Week

I'm writing this as the Oscars are beginning, and I've been taking notes on all of the red carpet looks I've seen so far. Here are my first impressions about the best and worst of 2017 Oscars fashion: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Best Dressed, The Women: Hailee Steinfeld and Taraji P. Henson


Seeing Hailee Steinfeld in her sheer floral dress made my jaw drop. I love everything about her look, from her hair to her makeup to every ruffle on her gown. At only 20 years old, Hailee Steinfeld is already making huge waves on the Oscar red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson can't go unmentioned. She looks absolutely amazing in her classic black gown and glimmering necklace, and will definitely be turning heads all night.

Best Dressed, The Men: Mahershala Ali and Dev Patel


In his black on black ensemble, with just a pop of color in his pocket square, Mahershala Ali looks super sophisticated and sleek. Dev Patel, wearing a black and white suit, looks fresh and classy. Both of them definitely hit the mark this year.

More Favorite Looks, The Women: From Chrissy Teigen to Octavia Spencer

Chrissy Teigen in Roberto Cavalli and Halle Berry in Versace.

Octavia Spencer in Marchesa and Kirsten Dunst in Dior.

Honorable Mentions, The Women: Zuri Hall and Luciana Barroso

Zuri Hall was one of the presenters on the E! News red carpet coverage, and I could not stop staring at her gorgeous purple floral gown. And Matt Damon's wife, Luciana Barroso, looked absolutely incredible in her gown and definitely deserved a mention.

Honorable Mentions, The Men: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Andrew Garfield l [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F28%2F636239077550483940109060534_636237590818422602-1934602575_andrew%2520garfield.jpg&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1023&h=25dbe99b0f61d87458635ae3ea4c0d317f7c10c0943617d253e9b0666f452734&size=980x&c=2970772258 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F28%252F636239077550483940109060534_636237590818422602-1934602575_andrew%252520garfield.jpg%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1023%26h%3D25dbe99b0f61d87458635ae3ea4c0d317f7c10c0943617d253e9b0666f452734%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2970772258%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Adorned with the ACLU blue ribbon, Lin-Manuel Miranda looked dapper and humble on the red carpet. Andrew Garfield kept it classic with a black tux and big bow tie.

Worst Dressed, The Women: Dakota Johnson and Scarlett Johansson

Both of these gowns just missed the mark tonight. Dakota Johnson was wearing the wrong color and fabric, and the cut of her gown looked sloppy and old fashioned. Scarlett Johansson didn't look nearly formal enough for the Oscars, and the cut and pattern of her dress seemed to swallow her whole. Also, her dark, studded belt clashed too much with the dress.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer.
