Lena Dunham, Emma Thompson and Beyonce
Considering it’s a bleak week in January, Fashionism is feeling pretty good. Maybe not so much because Sports Illustrated judged that 59-year-old Christie Brinkley’s near-naked body still meets a college boy’s idea of what an 18-year-old’s body should look like. (Stand back and admire the progress, folks.) Or that Kate Moss turned 40 and… oh, that’s it, she turned 40.
Golden Globes 2014: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s best jokes
Golden Globes 2014: And the award for genuine, crazy British broad goes to. . .

But other stuff did boost the seratonin levels. Like Beyoncé Knowles-Carter doing a shout-out for equal pay (next time: Bey tackles provocative dressing: Is it really empowering or was that a little bit of a fib?)
Or, even better: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes. Just think, teenage girls who have watched the Globes for two years consecutively now think it’s totally normal for women to be allowed to front shows with 20 million plus viewers. Bless them!
And on the same night, at the same awards show Emma Thompson threw away her Christian Louboutins: “This red? It’s my blood.” Powerful stuff. Even if she did have to pretend to be drunk to say it. By the way: rumours that Louboutin have bought the catchphrase for their new campaign are still unconfirmed.

And then just when we thought things couldn’t get more radical for the sisterhood, Anna Wintour only goes and gives Lena Dunham a massive girl-on-girl snog in the form of an American Vogue cover . Yep, the woman who unleashes her undieted ass and cellulite legs all over our TV becomes top Voguette for a month. Ok, it was a tight headshot (obviously she’s too fat for a full body cover!) and Dunham was retouched, but we’ll take what we can, ladies. We can build from this.
