Read Chelsea Clinton’s Heartfelt Letter to Her Kids About Trump and 2016 Election: ‘Progress Is Possible’ But Not ‘Inevitable’

She may have campaigned for her mother in the 2016 election — but Chelsea Clinton was fighting for her children.

The former first daughter wrote an open letter to daughter Charlotte, 3, and son Aiden, 1, for Teen Vogue in which she explains that creating a better world for her children is what most inspired her to travel the country stumping for mom Hillary Clinton — and warning about the dangers of a President Trump.

“The 2016 Election was most of all about you and the world I wanted for you and your generation to grow up in,” Clinton tells her kids. “While your grandmother’s name was on the ballot, for me, it was an election fundamentally about our country’s future, about your future. I am so proud to have campaigned for her — and fought for you.”

And although she was obviously disappointed by the election’s outcome, Clinton says that her “hopes for futures haven’t changed.”

“Everything that motivated me to work so hard for your futures throughout 2016 is still true today. Arguably more so,” she writes.

“What’s once again clear a couple hundred days into President Trump’s administration is that who is elected to office matters — for what is done, what is undone, and who and what are neglected through malice or incompetence,” Clinton continues. “A core lesson of this time in your early lives is that progress is possible, but it is not inevitable. It must be protected and advanced at the ballot box and beyond.”

Clinton had more harsh words for Trump in the letter, describing him as “a president who excuses neo-Nazis, who wants to ban members of our military because of who they are and keep out immigrants because of who they worship; that’s personal regard-less of our religion, our gender, or where we’re from … a president who denies science, whether it’s vaccines or climate change or evidence that, yes, health insurance helps save lives.”

“I foolishly used to believe that the political and the personal could be separated; I no longer believe that,” Clinton writes, later adding: “The marked rise in bullying in our schools, with some kids citing President Trump’s words to taunt others? That’s personal … ”

She concludes, “Protecting children isn’t someone else’s job; it’s all our jobs — even if the president doesn’t think it’s his.”

Kim Kardashian Used Healing Crystals to Recover From 2016 Paris Robbery

Kim Kardashian is diving further into the beauty world, launching three eau de parfums at her online beauty destination, kkwfragrance.com, on Nov. 15. The three variations on gardenia, her favorite flower and scent, are first come, first serve fragrances. Once they’re gone, that’s it.
In an exclusive interview with WWD, Kardashian outlined the process of creating and launching her three fragrances, Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Citrus and Crystal Gardenia Oud, including the inspiration behind them.
“Honestly, after my Paris situation [when she was held at gunpoint and robbed], a lot of my friends would come over and bring me healing crystals, and I obviously knew what they were — it’s very L.A. and it’s very popular right now — but for me it meant something so different. I was sitting there and I’d get these collections of them and I started to really dig deeper into what they meant and the meanings behind them and started to go to these crystal warehouses in Culver City and downtown [L.A.],” said Kardashian.
Developing each scent was about “being calm and healing,” which are the two words Kardashian used to describe a newly zen approach she’s taken over the past year. The color variations of each

Georgia Couple Recall Sweet Story of Gregg Allman Crashing a Local Engagement Party in 2016

A local Georgia family got the surprise of a lifetime when Gregg Allman crashed a casual engagement party taking place on their block on Labor Day weekend in 2016.

Kathleen and Wells Anderson recalled the event exclusively for PEOPLE after hearing of Allman’s death on Saturday at the age of 69. Last year, the Andersons saw the co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band when he came to listen to the band Bloodkin play outside the party for an engaged couple, Harley and Casey Krinsky.

“At the time, I said, ‘There’s no way he’s coming,’” Wells, 44, tells PEOPLE.  “Another buddy said if it happened, we would go down in history as having the best block party ever.”

Allman turned up for about four hours, keeping his distance from the other 40 guests. “My Volvo SUV was parked behind the band and I remember looking over there about 5:45 and seeing Gregg leaning against my car,” Kathleen, 39, said. “He stayed until about 10.” Added Wells: “He wasn’t partying or carrying on. He was just listening to the band.”

RELATED: Southern Rock Legend Gregg Allman’s Life in Photos

Initially, the Andersons were told that Allman was “going stir crazy” and wanted to get out of the house because his tour had been cancelled. “The other host knows someone who knew him and asked if it would be okay if he came,” Wells said. “But she also wanted to make sure he wouldn’t be mobbed.”

The late musician did request to meet the happy couple to thank them for letting him join in on the fun — and Kathleen got her chance to meet Allman as well.

At one point, after a couple of glasses of wine, Kathleen worked up her nerve to approach him. “I introduced myself and our son Sam, who was 8 then,” she said. “Gregg was a man of few words but he shook Sam’s hand.”

A few months before his death, the guitarist posted a message on social media commenting on his most recent cancelled tour dates and denied rumors he had been in hospice care.

“Hey everyone. I just wanted y’all to know that I’m currently home in Savannah resting on my doctor’s orders,” he wrote in April. “I want to thank you for all the love that you are sending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Keep Rockin.”

Ivanka Trump’s Clothing Sales Increased In 2016

Perhaps Ivanka Trump didn’t need that glowing endorsement from Kellyanne Conway to help boost profits.  

Trump’s businesses are mentioned virtually every time she is, and those mentions came fast and furious over the past year she helped her father become president. There were also headlines over boycotts of Trump products, stores that dropped her lines, accusations of copying designs, retweets from the official White House Twitter account and the hypocrisy of importing goods made in China as her father insisted he’d rebuild the country with American labor

It all combined for a hefty increase in sales in 2016. 

G-III Apparel Group, Ltd., which licenses Trump’s clothing collection (her shoe line is licensed through Marc Fisher), reported a “$ 17.9 million increase in net sales of Ivanka Trump licensed products” for the year ending January 31. The company credits the brand with helping bring up its gross profits as a whole, according to a new annual report released April 3.  

There were observed drops in sales over the period ― at Nordstrom, for example ― and while sales of G-III-licensed merchandise continued to increase, they did so at a significantly slower pace. Forbes reported the brand did $ 100 million in revenue with G-III during the 2015 fiscal year, when it saw net sales increase by $ 24.9 million over 2014. 

Trump’s brand declined to comment, and G-III did not return a request for comment by the time of publication. A spokesperson did tell Refinery 29 off-record Monday that “while Ivanka Trump might have been one of its faster growing brands last year, it is not one of the larger brands that the company operates.” The Calvin Klein label, for example, saw twice as much growth for G-III, garnering an increase in sales of $ 43.7 million.

The news adds fuel to the fire engulfing the Trump family’s numerous conflicts of interest. While Trump announced she was stepping down from her company in January and prohibited the brand from using her likeness in March, she still receives financial reports and profits from the company, even after becoming an official White House employee. An ethics expert told The Huffington Post last month that the only way Trump can truly avoid a conflict of interest is to sell the company or decline a job in the White House. 

The only things that seem certain is that Trump’s brand, like her position in the White House, will continue to be a point of contention during her father’s presidency ― and that any publicity really is good publicity.

Ermenegildo Zegna Profitability, Sales Dented in 2016; CEO Sees Growth in 2017

MILAN — Putting 2016 down as “a transitional” year, Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group, is banking on a new brand strategy, the company’s newly reorganized structure and a rebound in China and Europe to boost business in 2017.
“I am confident we will grow again this year; we started off on the right foot,” said Zegna in a phone interview ahead of boarding a plane for Dubai to join artistic director Alessandro Sartori on a number of personal appearances in the region. “One-on-one relations are fundamental, Alex is almost like a personal stylist in some cases,” said Zegna.
While 2017 looks promising, results last year were hit by extraordinary costs and write-offs, as well as lackluster sales in the group’s main markets.
In 2016, Zegna’s net profit fell 55.5 percent to 20 million euros, or $ 22 million, from 45 million euros, or $ 49.9 million, in 2015.
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization dropped 14.3 percent to 125 million euros, or $ 137.5 million, from 146 million euros, or $ 162 million, the previous year.

This Comedian Feels ‘Emboldened’ To Be Gay After The 2016 Election

Writer-performer Justin Sayre is among the ranks of those disappointed by the results of the 2016 presidential election, but he’s found a silver lining. 

In his latest video for HuffPost Queer Voices, Sayre said the rise of President Donald Trump has given him the “overwhelming urge to be so gay that I start to make people around me uncomfortable.”

“It’s nice to think of myself as a threat to American security again,” he said, nodding to Trump’s explicitly anti-LGBTQ agenda. “It’s nice to think that I’m the priority, that what I’m doing is so terrible and wrong that we have to shut this motherf**ker down. So I’m ready!”

Sayre’s “International Order of Sodomites” (I.O.S.) gathers once a month for “The Meeting,” a variety show honoring an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the LGBTQ community. The next edition of “The Meeting” hits Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York on Jan. 22. 

You can check out Sayre’s comedy album, “The Gay Agenda,” here. Meanwhile, the latest episode of “Sparkle & Circulate with Justin Sayre,” the official I.O.S. podcast, was released this month featuring an interview with legendary drag personality Lady Bunny.

You can also view some previous performances from “The Meeting” on Sayre’s official YouTube page. For more Sayre, head to Facebook and Twitter.

These 16 Great Videos Remind Us What It Meant To Be LGBTQ In 2016

2016 will be remembered as a particularly challenging year for many people, including those in the LGBTQ community.

The June 12 Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida and the controversy surrounding transgender “bathroom bills” in states like North Carolina left many queer people feeling vulnerable. Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s surprise election victory in November cast a grim shadow on the future of LGBTQ rights after a series of progressive strides under President Barack Obama

The year’s uncertainty was, of course, reflected on countless social media outlets. These 16 incredible videos ― which made a splash on Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets over the past year ― represent 12 months of LGBTQ trials and tribulations, as well as the community’s cheeky sense of humor. 

A few same-sex couples gave us life (and fitness) goals by organizing heartfelt proposals at the gym. An iconic “Mean Girls” scene got a hilarious, all-male redux in support of Hillary Clinton, and the bisexual community got the rock anthem it didn’t know it needed. LGBTQ allies got in on the fun, too: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Justin Bieber and Judy Garland’s daughter, Lorna Luft, helped us mourn the 49 Orlando victims in poignant ways.

Take a look back at 2016 with these 16 great videos.

These Two Power Sisters Helped Save the Day (and Night) in 2016

2016-12-30-1483124430-1464972-AriannaandAgapiphotocreditJoshRothstein.jpg

Do you feel like you’re stumbling to the finish line of 2016? Someone wondered via Twitter whether Quentin Tarantino was the director of this year. Yup, that about sums it up. The countdown to 2017 has started early for many who are ready to put the year to rest. Good riddance, 2016!

We’ve been clobbered with bad news at every turn. The “if it bleeds, it leads” mantra of mainstream media doesn’t do us any favors. The approach is reminiscent of my Nana’s “guess who just died” phone calls.

Day and night, our anxieties are ramped up by headlines of doom and gloom.

We wonder why we’re such a sleep deprived, numbed out, over stimulated collective.

Like many people across time and space, there’s been a lot to contend with. There are massive problems wreaking havoc. The polarized election and aftermath, shaky economies, refugee crises, terror attacks, Brexit, nuclear threats, natural disasters, and even the sleuth of celebrity deaths have hit plenty of nerves.

The grave problems cannot be solved in five simple steps, and aren’t likely to disappear when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, either.

It will take a lot of will to learn how to take better care of ourselves, and one another in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead of us.

Luckily, in the midst of all the chaos, 2016 delivered a powerful dose of sisterly wisdom to help us with this. One telling us to “wake up”, the other: “get to sleep”.

Agapi Stassinopoulos and her sister Arianna Huffington’s are modern Greek Goddesses amongst us–they’ve both overcome odds and spent their lives tirelessly working to change damaging paradigms. Most recently, their Thrive Global initiative delivers workshops to help address the significant burnout and stress crises threatening our wellbeing and sustainability.

This year, they’ve each delivered books emphasizing self-care at a time when we really need it. To help save the day (and night), their sage advice help us finesse the light and dark with greater ease.

Agapi’s new book, Wake Up to the Joy of You, debuted just two days after Christmas. It’s daily dose of meditation practices can rein in even the most unruly, distracted brains. She teaches how to awaken to greater presence, self-compassion and renew a sense of purposeful, zestful living. When you read it, it’s like she’s sitting with you, coaching you to abandon worry, and make health a priority. She’s the ultimate storyteller and guide.

Arianna’s The Sleep Revolution was released in April, urging more sane and scientifically grounded sleep practices. After her own dangerous bout of stress-induced burnout, she has become known as a “sleep evangelist”. She’s so deeply convinced of the need for change, she left her role as editor-in-chief at the Huffington Post to put all hands on deck towards Thrive.

Agapi and Arianna’s leadership have sparked conversations across the world, helping people rethink archaic work habits and policies that leave us sleep and emotionally deprived, and at greater risk for physical and mental health problems.

2016 is infamous for good reason. Our challenges won’t disappear when the ball drops. But, the wisdom from these generous thought leader sisters help us learn to simultaneously awaken and rest, so that we can meet 2017 with new resolve.

Thank you, Agapi and Arianna.

Happy new year, all.

These 15 Viral Beauty Tricks Made 2016 Even Weirder

Yes, 2016 was weird. And it had the beauty trends to match. Luckily, nothing lasts forever, even if those 100 coats of nail polish videos felt like they might.

As the year comes to an end, there’s no better time to revisit the trends that inspired a whole lot of head scratching, wonderment and just as many YouTube tutorials. 

Check them out below and stay weird, beauty lovers. 

1. Succulent nails

Because the only thing more painfully hip than nail art is succulent nail art.

2. KFC’s chicken-flavored nail polish.

Edible, chicken-flavored and oh so weird. 

3. The V-Steam.

This Gwyneth Paltrow-approved treatment involves a tube that blows hot steam onto your vagina that allegedly “balances female hormone levels” (dubious). We’re not so sure about paying upward of $ 50 to give our vaginas steam “facials,” but who are we to judge!

4. Hologram lips. 

OK, this one, that requires just one $ 14 lip gloss, is just as cool as it is weird. 

5. Lisa Frank hair. 

Because rainbows make everyone smile. #lyssdidmyhair #rainbowhair #hairvideo #allthecolors #lisafrankhair

A video posted by Connecticut Hairstylist (@lysseon) on

The Lisa Frank obsession this year prompted a clothing line, coloring books and this mesmerizing, psychedelic trend in hair dye. Rainbow hair isn’t necessarily weird, but the fact that it’s inspired by 90s-era school stationary is a little unusual. 

6. Crystal lips

They’re made using “heavy glitter, base color and clear gloss” and they are so intense. 

7. 100 layers videos.

Starting with “polish mountain,” beauty vloggers spent hours of their lives in 2016 demonstrating what 100 layers of mascara, foundation and liquid lipstick look like (to name a few). Jenna Marbles took it about 500 steps further when she did them all, plus hairspray and false lashes, because why not?

8. The edible chocolate manicure

OK, this mani made with icing may have been a joke, but that didn’t make it any less weird (or fun to watch).

9. Nutella hair dye.

As if we needed another reason to idolize Nutella: it allegedly lightens hair (we are highly skeptical) in addition to being the most delightful snack on the planet. Have we mentioned we’re skeptical? Of course, pretending to use Nutella as a hair dye would be pretty weird too.

10. Cheeto Curls

YouTuber Grav3yardgirl actually achieved some enviable ringlets from wrapping her hair in puffy Cheetos, but we’d still advise against trying this one at home. 

11. Penis-imprinted highlighters.

Makeup brand Bitch Slap Cosmetics crafted these genitalia-themed highlighters that no one ever asked for.

12. Neck contouring.

So… Will this be a new trend? What do you guys think? #neckcontour ( @mwhairstyles) #fdbeauty

A video posted by Female Daily Network (@femaledailynetwork) on

Maybe useful for a red carpet you’re planning to walk down backward? Otherwise, this one just seems difficult to maneuver and a waste of time. 

13. Boob masks.

You know those sheet masks you put on your face? Well, these are those but for boobs. They even have nipple cutouts. Reminder: Your boobs are perfect the way they are, sheet mask or otherwise. 

14. Glow-in-the-dark hair.

Celebrity hairstylist Guy Tang created this high-octane dye job that legit glows in the dark. Black lights have never been more needed.

15. Vagasil as a primer. 

Vagisil treats yeast infections, sure, but its ingredients do wonders for filling in your fine lines and acting as a great base for makeup, according to a bunch of beauty bloggers.

The Best Movie GIFs Of 2016

In terms of the year’s best movies, we made our list and checked it twice. But will anyone remember them if they aren’t reproduced in GIF format?

These are some of 2016’s defining movie images. They may be funny or charming or beautiful or strange. They’re certainly memorable. 

In no particular order, here are the GIFs that won our hearts.

“La La Land”

As the central romance between Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling begins to soar, so do their characters ― literally. This swelling planetarium reverie sends them shooting for the stars. 

Director: Damien Chazelle • Director of photography: Linus Sandgren

“Arrival”

Our first glimpse of the alien pods that have touched down across Earth comes in a shot that crawls across the Montana plains, at once peaceful and menacing.

Director: Denis Villeneuve • Director of photography: Bradford Young

 

“American Honey”

The restless protagonist of “American Honey” finds liberation on the open road, where her freak flag can fly.

Director: Andrea Arnold • Director of photography: Robbie Ryan

 

“The Jungle Book”

Mowgli sails down a river on Baloo’s belly, singing about the bare necessities of life.

Director: Jon Favreau • Director of photography: Bill Pope

 

“Moana”

The titular Disney heroine has a special bond with the ocean. It’s even her hairdresser.

Directors: John Clements and John Musker 

 

“Jackie”

Most “Jackie” imagery is best experienced in context, but this exchange in which longtime assistant Nancy Tuckerman (Greta Gerwig) reminds Jackie Kennedy (Natalie Portman) to smile for the camera contains magnitudes.

Director: Pablo Larraín • Director of photography: Stéphane Fontaine

 

“Moonlight”

Barry Jenkins didn’t intend to feature a close-up of André Holland exhaling cigarette smoke. Then he spotted the actor on his actual smoke break and realized it was too sensual to pass up.

Director: Barry Jenkins • Director of photography: James Laxton

 

“Ghostbusters”

Forever the MVP of anything she touches, Kate McKinnon was the best part of “Ghostbusters.” She came through, comedic guns a-blazing. 

Director: Paul Feig • Director of photography: Robert Yeoman

 

“Bad Moms”

There was nothing more fantastically silly than Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn tearing through a supermarket to blow off some mama steam.

Director: Jon Lucas and Scott Moore • Director of photography: Jim Denault

 

“Hail, Caesar!”

It’s not the first time we’ve seen Channing Tatum’s groovy moves, and it won’t be the last. But add in a sailor outfit, a little tap-dancing and an old-timey musical number, and you get movie magic.

Directors: Ethan Coen and Joel Coen • Director of photography: Roger Deakins

 

“The Witch”

Only one member of the movie’s Puritan clan learns how to live deliciously. 

Director: Robert Eggers • Director of photography: Jarin Blaschke 

 

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

It’s all about the Niffler, baby.

Director: David Yates • Director of photography: Philippe Rousselot

 

“Pete’s Dragon”

There’s no way you saw little orphan Pete dashing through the forest without longing for a dragon of your own.

Director: David Lowery • Director of photography: Bojan Bazelli

 

“Hidden Figures”

It’s never been more delightful to see a mob walking toward us in step than in this empowering scene.

Director: Theodore Melfi • Director of photography: Mandy Walker

11 Of The Best Body Positive Fashion Moments In 2016

The fashion industry is still working its way to real size inclusivity, but it undoubtedly played a major role in shifting toward more body positivity in the media ― and among those who consume it.

In 2016, there were champions of body positivity starring in major campaigns and magazine covers and wearing store-bought awards show dresses instead of conforming to strict sample sizes.  

Because we could all use a reminder of some of the good things that happened this year, check out 11 body positive moments in fashion below. 

1. Ashley Graham’s history-making Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

Graham’s February cover marked the first time a plus-size model headlined the hotly anticipated Swimsuit Issue, leading the way for her incredibly fruitful year ahead.

2. Bryce Dallas Howard calls out the industry for its lack of options.

Howard revealed in January that she often buys her own dresses at department stores instead of borrowing from sample-size-loving designers, so that she can choose from “lots of options for a size 6, as opposed to maybe one option.” She both won the hearts of women everywhere and pointed out how truly size-exclusive fashion can be. 

3. Christian Siriano’s Spring 2017 runway show.

The designer is a longtime advocate of inclusivity and champion of great style for women of all shapes and sizes. He further proved that there’s a place for varied bodies on the runway when he cast five plus-size models in his show at New York Fashion Week. 

4. The All Woman Project.

Co-founded by models Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard, this empowering campaign was organized to shake up the industry standards of beauty and offer up new role models for underrepresented women.

5. Jasmine Tookes’ unretouched Fantasy Bra photos.

The news that Tookes is the third black woman ever chosen to wear the elaborate bra was cause for celebration, but this behind-the-scenes image released by the brand, proudly featuring the model’s stretch marks, was the icing on the body positive cake. 

6. Refinery29’s 67% Project.

Today's #InstagramStories wants you to #SeeThe67 Photographed by @alexandra_gavillet

A photo posted by Refinery29 (@refinery29) on

Refinery29 launched an initiative back in September to more accurately represent the “67 percent of women who identify as ‘plus-size’” in its online content. It partnered with Getty Images to roll out a series of inclusive stock images and committed to featuring more diversity on the site moving forward. 

7. Self Magazine’s final print issue.

Self cast self-love champion and curvy model Iskra Lawrence as its final cover star, leaving a lasting visual message and reminder that health is not one-size-fits-all. 

8. This awe-inspiring take on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

This video, in which women of all shapes and sizes stripped down to their underwear and recreated the VS show in front of friends and colleagues, was super empowering ― plus it just looked plain fun. 

9. These Women’s Running magazine covers. 

The running-focused magazine continued its streak of delighting us when it put a plus-size model on its March cover, and further impressed us by teaming up in November with plus-size model Candice Huffine on Project Start, a running initiative launched by the model and the mag to help beginners get started on their own running programs. 

10. Tim Gunn’s scathing op-ed about the fashion industry. 

Leave it to Tim Gunn to rally for body positivity while throwing the best shade at the same time. Calling out the industry for its lack of choices for women over a certain size, Gunn once again cemented his status as a champion of all women in the pages of The Washington Post. “I profoundly believe that women of every size can look good. But they must be given choices,” he said, calling out designers as “not interested” in catering to women over a certain size. “This is a design failure and not a customer issue. There is no reason larger women can’t look just as fabulous as all other women,” he said.

11. Ashley Graham’s British Vogue cover.

Ashley Graham both kicks off and signs off this list, as there’s no denying her impact in fashion in 2016. She nabbed a ton of covers throughout the year, but became the first plus-size model to cover British Vogue in December, giving us hope for the year ahead and beyond.

I’m Tired Of Hearing How Bad 2016 Was

How was your year?

Whenever I get on Facebook these days I see an insane amount of bellyaching and newsfeed sh*tposting that’s quite frankly got me tired as hell.

Yeah, Mr. Trump is our president-elect, and yeah, the election had us on a figurative roller coaster that got worse and worse as the year went on.

However, despite all this insanity that kept happening around me (and the fact that I literally heard Donald Trump’s name 10 times per day), I had the best year of my life.

Turns out it’s actually pretty easy to have a great time despite what’s going on around us. Now, I don’t mean to say we should ignore what’s happening in the political sphere, but we shouldn’t let it decide whether we have a good year or a bad one.

I remember I met an English guy in Austin right around the time Brexit was happening. When it did happen he was pretty devastated — even though I could tell he was holding back from showing it a bit.

The crazy thing is we drove six hours that day to a beautiful spot up in Tucson, catching the sunset in a place called Sabino Canyon. I could post pictures, (which I will) but trust me when I say these images will never give you the same feeling I felt standing there in real time.

Arizona. #travelblog #digitalnomad #outhere #sabinocanyon

A photo posted by Tom Kuegler (@tomkuegler) on

Oddly enough I never heard one more word about Brexit the entire time we were together. Granted, we were only with each other for a few days after that, but come on — nothing??

The next day we saw Sedona in upstate Arizona, both absolutely fascinated by these beautiful red rocks jutting out of the desert. You should’ve seen our jaws on the drive up there.

The point is there’s more important things in life.

Now, how the hell could I say something like that about something like government?

I honestly think political issues get so blown out of proportion by the media (hypocritical, I know) that we lose track of the things that hold us together.

These issues are important to talk about, however are they more important than treating our fellow man with some iota of respect? Or standing in awe of this sophisticated planet we inhabit?

I mean, we aren’t the only beings that live here–and I get it, government can help (or not help) make this amazing world a better place. But I think often times we get so caught up in the fighting and sh*tposting that we forget about what we’re actually here to do, or what we’ve come to save.

There’s nothing like sitting at the end of the world while watching a sunset to bring you back to this realization. It definitely grounds you a bit.

As a side note, sometimes all we want to do is be heard. I try to hear everybody even if I disagree.

I had a wonderful 2016. I watched the first presidential debate in Bozeman, Montana. I watched the second one in Salt Lake City. I watched the last one in Denver.

I spent two and a half months with my best friend in San Francisco and met so many other people that made my year fantastic.

San Francisco, I'm officially and undoubtedly deeply in love with you. #travelblog #laborday #itiswhatitis

A photo posted by Tom Kuegler (@tomkuegler) on

I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I believe I had a great year because I spent it in awe of this country (and world), while simultaneously trying to spend more time with the people that mean a lot to me.

And yes, the political situation this year had me down on a multitude of occasions, but I chose to focus on other things. I saw the beauty of this country (and this country’s people) while working on finding myself as a 23-year-old caught up in the world.

So, before we keep talking about the shitty year that we had, let’s take a look around us! The people and places that surround us are what we’re really here for. We can find the light in any situation. I hope we can all find it from here on out, wherever we go or whatever happens.

Harambe and ‘Damn Daniel’ Among The Memes That Won The Internet In 2016

2016 has widely been considered a tough year. But not all of 2016 was a downer. The Internet, as it often does, has provided plenty of hilarity in the form of viral memes to lighten things up.

We took a look at Google’s 2016 search trends and found the top 10 most sought-after memes of the year. From Harambe memes to the angry Michael Phelps face, these Internet creations will go down in online history as classics. 

 

1. Harambe

When Harambe the gorilla was shot in order to protect a small child who had wandered into his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, public outrage ensued. The Internet, however, had other plans for Harambe, and used the incident as the basis for a series of viral memes that were hard to miss on social media, making Harambe the top trending meme of the year.  

It’s no surprise that a meme making light of an animal’s death caused quite a bit of controversy, especially with the Cincinnati Zoo. The zoo deleted its social media accounts amidst a barrage of Harambe memes. During the 2016 presidential election, people even joked that they voted for Harambe as a candidate.

 

2. Damn Daniel

The “Damn Daniel” trend all started with a viral tweet, which featured a video of teenager Daniel Lara in his white Vans sneakers. Throughout the clip, Lara’s friend comments on his shoes, saying “damn Daniel.” You have to watch it to truly understand why this is Internet gold, and the second top trending meme of the year

 

3. Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go is not only the top Google search of 2016, it is also the third most viral meme of the year. With the game’s U.S. release on July 6, it makes sense that only a few weeks later, the Internet had already gone to work creating memes.  

4. Dat Boi

It’s difficult to trace the origin of “Dat Boi,” the meme featuring an animated frog on a unicycle, but several sources believe it was inspired by an older meme on Tumblr from 2015. While pinpointing the source for its popularity is tricky, “Dat Boi” skyrocketed to viral fame in May 2016, when the vast majority of the “Dat Boi” memes were created.

Adding even more humor to this meme, it appears the image may have come from a physics textbook, according to this Twitter user’s discovery:

 

5. SpongeBob Caveman

Perhaps one of the most visually hilarious meme trends of the year was SpongeBob Caveman, also known as Primitive Sponge. For any SpongeBob SquarePants fans out there, you’ll likely remember the 1999 caveman episode that created the magical creature that is SpongeGar. Fast forward to May 2016, when a Reddit user decided to bring back SpongeGar, sparking the viral meme trend that is now known as SpongeBob Caveman. This timing explains why a spike in Google searches for the meme started in late May. 

 

6. Michael Phelps

If you watched the Rio Olympics, you’re likely familiar with the angry Michael Phelps meme. When the camera featured Phelps’ face in the holding room, as he was listening to music and preparing for his 200m butterfly semifinal, the Internet immediately moved to meme-ify the moment.  

What resulted from this unintentional death stare was a series of memes that we are certainly not going to forget anytime soon.  

 

7. Donald Trump

The Donald Trump memes started trending during the first presidential debate in September, and saw its biggest spike in Google searches in early November, when the election took place. Largely created as a response against Trump’s policies and statements, this meme trend was met with controversy from Trump supporters.

 

8. “Making A Murderer”

The Netflix original documentary “Making A Murderer” left many viewers convinced that Steven Avery was framed and innocent. This inspired a series of comedic memes in his support. Google searches for the memes spiked around mid-January, about a month after the show premiered on December 18. 

 

9. Ken Bone

During the second U.S. presidential debate on September 29, undecided voters had the chance to ask candidates their questions directly. Ken Bone inquired about the candidates’ energy policies, and immediately became an Internet sensation. 

The memes started rolling out within the next few days, causing a spike in Google searches.

 

10. Birdman

During an appearance on the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” rapper Birdman went on a rant and abruptly walked off the show, thus sparking yet another viral meme trend. The first to poke fun at the awkward interview was an Instagram user who uploaded an edited version of the video, with Michael Jordan’s crying face over Birdman’s:

One Tear-Jerking Last Look At Michelle Obama’s Best Outfits Of 2016

We spent a large part of 2016 celebrating Michelle Obama’s legacy and trying our best to ignore the imminent end of her tenure as first lady. She has done a great deal to help distract us from the latter, blessing the masses with arguably her best dressed year yet.

Sure, FLOTUS has had too many incredible style moments to count over the past eight years, but she really turned it out for the farewell tour. This rose gold Atelier Versace moment serves as proof. 

Nothing can prepare us for the dark day looming in the distance when she passes along her title and the slew of best-dressed opportunities that come with itto the incoming first lady. But as they say, it’s better to smile because it happened than to cry because it’s over.

It’s in that spirit that we present 11 of Michelle’s best looks of 2016, which we intend to scroll up and down over and over again for the remainder of this year.

Forget Donald Trump: Pokémon Go Was King Of 2016

The question at the top of many Americans’ minds in 2016 might surprise you.

In a year that boasted both a presidential election and the Olympic Games, the top question people were searching for on Google was actually, “What is Pokémon Go?” This data, recently released by Google, is based on searches that began with “What is…” and had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2016 as compared to 2015.

So, why all the curiosity? After launching on July 6, Pokémon Go became possibly one of the most viral mobile apps of the year. It immediately attracted old-school Pokémon fans and newcomers alike. Similar to the original concept of the game, the mobile app allows players to virtually track and capture wild Pokémon in real life. 

Here are the other top “What is…” questions people were searching for in 2016: 

2. “What is a caucus?”

A caucus occurs when registered members of a political party meet to elect a political candidate for their respective party. A total of sixteen states hold caucuses to select political candidates, with Iowa holding the first and most influential caucuses. The Iowa caucuses took place on February 1 this year, resulting in a win for Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side, and a win for Ted Cruz on the Republican side.  

3. “What is Brexit?”

Brexit, also known as the British Exit, refers to the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union on June 23. The vote to exit, which only won by a slim margin, came as a shock to many and caused the British pound to fall to its lowest value in decades. Interestingly, Google searches for Brexit spiked after the vote took place.

 

4. “What is the Electoral College?”

The Electoral College is made up of 538 electors. Every state gets one elector for each of their members in the House of Representatives and two for each of their Senate members. On December 19, the Electoral College officially voted for Donald Trump as president of the United States. 

 

5. “What are electoral votes?”

A majority of 270 electoral votes is needed to elect the president of the United States. When the Electoral College cast its votes on December 19, Donald Trump earned a total of 304 votes, while Hillary Clinton received 227.

6. “What is Aleppo?”

Aleppo, once the largest city in Syria, has been subjected to extreme violence due to battles between the Syrian government and rebel forces. In July, assistance with food and medical supplies was cut off as fighting in Aleppo intensified, causing conditions to worsen and putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians at risk. On December 22, the Syrian army announced that it had taken back control of all of Aleppo, “ending four years of rebel resistance in the northern Syrian city,” Reuters reported

This search query also likely spiked due to Gary Johnson, who infamously asked, “What is Aleppo?” during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

7. “What is the mannequin challenge?”

The mannequin challenge is a viral video trend in which people are challenged to stand still ~like a mannequin~ while the camera moves through a scene. Searches for this spiked in October, when the first mannequin challenge video went viral on Twitter.  

We think Ellen Degeneres pretty much nailed it though.

#MannequinChallenge

A video posted by Ellen (@theellenshow) on

 

8. “What is the European Union?”

The European Union is a political union comprised of 28 countries. The union benefits from certain membership privileges and also is subjected to binding laws and regulations. The union’s members must agree unanimously to policies concerning foreign affairs and defense. Google searches for the European Union spiked after the Brexit vote

9. “What is Citizens United?”

Citizens United refers to a law case, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which addresses organizations’ campaign spending. Google searches for the case spiked in July, right around when Hillary Clinton pledged a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United in her first 30 days should she be elected president. 

10. “What is a Superdelegate?”

A Superdelegate is an “unpledged delegate to the Democratic convention.” In other words, a Superdelegate is not required to abide by the results of the caucuses or primaries, and can support any candidate of their choosing at the convention. It appears Google searches for this question spiked right around the New Hampshire primaries, when there appeared to be general confusion as to why the delegate count between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton was so close

5 Black Beauty Moments That Stole The Spotlight In 2016

Let’s be real, 2016 was filled with so many magical black girl beauty moments. From music videos to magazine covers, black women rocked them all. 

On Thursday’s episode of the “BV Breakdown” ― HuffPost Black Voices’ bi-weekly show devoted to all things black culture ― Essence’s digital fashion and beauty director Julee Wilson joined as a guest to reflect on a few of her favorite show-stopping looks.

This list is by no means comprehensive (we’d be here all day if it were) but to give you a glimpse, here are five of Wilson’s most memorable black beauty moments from this year: 

1. Solange’s “A Seat At The Table” Album Cover

Solange released her third studio album in September and blessed us with an incredible cover image to go with it. The artist’s bold brows, barely-there makeup and multicolored duckbill hair clips fit the unapologetic tone of her album perfectly, and even inspired a wave of Solange Halloween costumes

”This will forever be an iconic image. I think that she has just really pushed the envelope stylistically with her music, but also [with her] fashion and beauty,” Wilson said. “This ‘Seat At The Table’ album was such a beautiful homage to black women and I love that she went this very creative, abstract route for her album cover.”

2. Any Of Alicia Keys’ “No Makeup” Looks

Alicia Keys set off a major beauty movement when she announced her commitment to go makeup-free. While her choice to relinquish her makeup routine sparked both cheers and criticism, Keys looks as beautiful as ever with her sans-makeup look.  

“Everyone was talking about it when Alicia Keys wrote that ‘Lenny Letter’ essay about forgoing makeup. I think it was really powerful,” said Wilson. “I wear makeup. I’m wearing makeup right now. I think my makeup is on fleek … but I think it’s just a beautiful stance for a woman, any where, any how, to say, ‘I’m just going to let you see me for me.’” 

3. Gabby Douglas’ Bold Lipstick At The Olympics

Gabby Douglas won an Olympic gold medal with her “Final Five” teammates in Rio this year, “but she also gets a gold medal for this makeup look,” Wilson said. Douglas’ crimson lipstick caught our eye the moment that she stepped up to start her routine. 

“Some people tried to come for her hair again, but she wasn’t playing those games,” Wilson said. “I love that she really brushed the haters off this year and I think she stepped into this womanhood. I feel like that lipstick was really a moment to be like, ‘I’m grown. Don’t come for me. I’m a badass athlete. I’m a gold medal Olympian.”

4. Lupita Nyong’o’s Towering Met Gala Hair

Actress Lupita Nyong’o abandoned her signature close-cropped cut and opted to take her hair to new heights at this year’s Met Gala. While Vogue compared the look to Aubrey Hepburn, Nyong’o and her hairstylist Vernon Francois actually drew inspiration for the ‘do from Nina Simone and African traditions. 

“They just have such an amazing partnership and they came up with this beautiful hairstyle, which is a homage to lots of different hairstyles from the past,” Wilson said of Nyong’o and Francois’ friendship. “Nina Simone had a hairstyle like this… I think it was beautiful that [Nyong’o] chose to do it on the biggest red carpet for fashion.” 

5. Sasha Obama’s Standout Cornrow Braids

The White House’s Canadian state dinner was filled with all sorts of stunning looks, but Sasha Obama’s braids, which she paired with winged eyeliner and a choker, stole the show.

“I feel like everyone was doing those two cornrow braids, dutch braids, and she just did it in such a chic, beautiful, new way,” Wilson said. “It’s also a great nod to black hair and braids… You know she could have gone for the sleek cut, but I love that she did this.”

In 2016, TV Shows Got Wonderfully Honest About Abortion

In 1972, just a few months before the Supreme Court’s seminal ruling on Roe v. Wade, television audiences were scandalized when Bea Arthur’s 47-year-old character on “Maude” decided to get an abortion. They were just as scandalized in 1992 when Candice Bergen, playing journalist Murphy Brown, gave birth to a baby out of wedlock

Much has changed both on and off TV since ‘92 and ‘72, but on the brink of a Trump presidency, women are still fearful about the future of access to safe reproductive care. In the last month alone, Ohio has moved to ban abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy, and Texas passed a measure stipulating that women who have abortions must cremate or bury their fetuses. The current political climate means that the way pop culture tackles the choices women make about their bodies is more important than ever. 

In recent years, TV shows have tackled pregnancy, birth control and abortion in more frank and nuanced ways. In 2015, “Scandal” included a powerful abortion scene featuring lead character Olivia Pope, while “Girls” took a matter-of-fact look at the aftermath of getting an abortion through the arc of supporting character Mimi Rose. And in 2016, depictions of abortion and pregnancy on TV have continued in their poignancy, showing an even wider array of women making decisions on their own terms. 

Take “Shameless,” for instance. In season six of the Showtime series, which follows the lovable but dysfunctional Gallagher family, eldest daughter Fiona and her little sister Debbie butt heads after it is revealed that Debbie, still a teenager, is pregnant. Debbie is determined to move forward with the pregnancy, while Fiona urges her to go to an abortion clinic.

“I’m finally almost free from raising you kids, and I don’t intend to do it again!” Fiona yells at her sister. 

But Debbie doesn’t back down on her decision, a choice Fiona must ultimately live with. In the scene above, Fiona tells her sister: “I do support you Debs, I just don’t support all of your choices.”

“I am my choices, Fiona. Why don’t you see that?,” Debbie responds.

Ultimately, the ability for women to make their own decisions ― regardless of what those decisions are ― is what reproductive care and choice are all about.

While “Shameless” showed audiences the complex emotional drama that can come out of teenaged girl passionately making the choice to move forward with her pregnancy, on the other side of the spectrum, two hit comedies chose to depict prominent female characters choosing to have abortions without much ― or any ― emotional fallout.

FXX comedy “You’re The Worst” featured Lindsay, BFF to lead character Gretchen, conspire to get pregnant in the most bizarre of ways (she artificially inseminated herself with a turkey baster), and then decide that she wanted an “a-bo-bo” in the most matter-of-fact way. 

“It’s not to say that abortion is something that doesn’t have ramifications emotionally for the people involved,” showrunner Stephen Falk told The Hollywood Reporter after the episode aired in November. “But sometimes it doesn’t, and we’re trying to show that side.”

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” approached its portrayal of abortion with more poignancy than “You’re The Worst,” but a similar lack of emotional agony. The most revolutionary part of the storyline was that it simply didn’t make abortion a thing. In the fourth episode of season 2, which aired in November, lead character Rebecca Bunch’s best friend Paula learns that she is pregnant just as she decides she wants to go to law school. Already a mother of two, she decides to end her pregnancy in order to focus on her career. At the end of the episode, she considers telling Rebecca, but decides not to ― “I just, you know, I had a thing. I figured it out,” she says.  

The reason seeing a story like this is so important is that depicts the fact that there are many ways for women to feel, react, and deal with pregnancy at different stages of life. Plus, seeing a middle-aged mom with two kids make that decision is a refreshing change ― and one that’s quite true to life. After all, the majority of women who get abortions already have children.

“Jane the Virgin” also showed a woman who was already a mother choose to get an abortion. After three seasons revolving around unplanned pregnancies, in 2016, the sweet, soapy CW comedy finally tackled abortion. Titular character Jane’s mother, Xiomara, had Jane at a very young age, the result of an unplanned pregnancy. Now in her 40s, Xo learns that she is pregnant after a one-night stand, and decides to terminate the pregnancy.

Xo makes a single-minded, clear decision for herself, one that she later discusses openly and honestly with both her mother and Jane’s father. It’s significant for so many reasons, not least of all because the storyline makes her the first Latina character to have an abortion on American TV. For so long, abortion storylines on television have disproportionately revolved around young, white, middle-class women. A 2015 study by the Abortion Onscreen Project found that between 2005 and 2014, 87 percent of fictional women who get abortions on TV were white, while in reality the number is closer to 36 percent. Xo’s story helps, in a small way, to shift that prevailing narrative. 

Anther part of expanding the way the culture views abortion involves challenging the power structures that seek to control women’s bodies. Some of the loudest anti-abortion voices are of people who will never have to consider having an abortion: men. In July, the scrutiny and hysteria that abortion sparks was lampooned in Netflix’s critically-acclaimed animated series “Bojack Horseman.” 

When writer Diane accidentally tweets that she’s getting an abortion from the official Twitter account of Sextina Aquafina, the pop star she helps manage, Diane thinks she needs to do some serious damage control. Surprisingly, the accidental tweet makes Sextina hotter than ever, and the pop star releases a horrifyingly absurd music video that both makes light of and celebrates abortion.

The satire of the episode works on several levels, skewering not only society’s attitudes towards abortion, but the way that we talk about it in pop culture. Perhaps the most spot-on part of the episode is the all-male panel invited to a cable news show to discuss Sextina’s controversial video, and whether the “concept of women having choices has gone too far?” 

”This is not just a women’s issue,” says one expert. “I’m a man, but if I got pregnant would I put my life on hold for a child I didn’t want? Yes I would. And I can say that with confidence because I’ll never have to make that decision.”

Lest we forget, all-male panels on reproductive rights are not just a thing of fiction. Ohio’s 20-week abortion ban bill was advanced, after all, by an all-male congressional panel.

What “Bojack Horseman,” “You’re The Worst,” “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy-Ex Girlfriend” and “Shameless” all articulate is that reproductive health care isn’t about statistics; it isn’t black and white. Every woman who does or doesn’t decide to have an an abortion, every woman who seeks out birth control in the form of pills or an IUD, every woman chooses to freeze her eggs, or decides children aren’t for her, or struggles with fertility issues ― each and every one of those women is an individual, with a story and a perspective unique to her. 

We still have a long way to go when it comes to telling complex, diverse stories onscreen about pregnancy, abortion and reproductive care. But hopefully 2016 gave us a small glimpse at what lies ahead ― more inclusive, compelling explorations of a complex and personal choice.

Pics Of Chubby Asian Babies Will Warm Your Cold, Despondent 2016 Heart

Brace yourself. You’re about to see the most delightful thing on the internet. 

Instagram page “Tiny Gentle Asians” features happiness-inducing photos of chubby, adorable Asian babies alongside hilarious, meme-worthy captions.

The page launched about two years ago and since then, it’s racked up more than 50,000 followers, even attracting famous fans like Chelsea Handler.

Mel Kenny, the genius behind the page, told The Huffington Post in an email that it all started purely out of “irrepressible love” for tiny gentle Asians, or “TGAs” as she lovingly calls them. The name, Kenny says, perfectly captures what these little nuggets are all about. 

It me, @skrillex

“The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells me gentle means ‘free from harshness, sternness, or violence,’” she said. “How can babies really be anything other than those things?”

Kenny’s posts range from Asian babies in precious costumes or stuffing their faces Asian babies chillin’ with pets, among other ridiculously cute moments that score a 10 on our extremely official cuteness scale. 

Stand up and let your voice be heard #depacifyme

A photo posted by Tiny Gentle Asians (@tinygentleasians) on

Kenny, who’s a writer, editor and social media consultant mentioned that part of the draw of chubby Asian babies on Instagram lies in the way their preciously pudgy features are captured.

“What I have observed is that Japanese and Korean mothers seem to take a more theatrical approach to documenting their babies.”

I was once a peasant like you.

A photo posted by Tiny Gentle Asians (@tinygentleasians) on

“What I have observed is that Japanese and Korean mothers seem to take a more theatrical approach to documenting their babies,” she said. “This approach is most definitely steeped in humor – using unflattering angles to best accentuate a baby’s chubbiness, for instance.”

Another reason why the page is so popular is because TGAs are, well, all of us, Kenny noted.

“The average person finds enlarged babies from Asia rather relatable,” Kenny, who’s Thai, told HuffPost.

She added that people often tag their friends when seeing TGAs that perfectly illustrate different moments in their lives: “Going ‘hi @friend remember when we skipped the gym in favour of that Family Pizza Meal Deal?’ is just another way people communicate with their friends during the day.” 

I am so smart like Albert Einstein or Jennifer Lawrence

But when it boils down to it, the Instagram page is really just proof of the awesome, uplifting power of the interwebs, Kenny said. 

 “Joy can be cultivated via digital screens and it is contagious!”

The Magical Ways Ashley Graham Completely Nailed 2016

2016 was a god awful year and the dread of what’s to come in 2017 is getting ever closer. But there were some good things to come out of this past year, and Ashley Graham’s increasing presence in the public eye is one of them. 

The model, designer and body activist has led the way toward shifting beauty standards in the fashion industry, whether it be through spreading her own message of body positivity or landing jobs historically reserved for models of a smaller size. It’s hard to think of a single person in fashion who had a better, more impactful year than the 28-year-old model. 

Still not convinced? Allow us to break it down for you chronologically. We could essentially create a running list of every successful minute of Graham’s year, but that would be creepy and we’d be here all day. So herewith, her biggest, boldest wins of 2016. 

#1

Graham kicked off the year with a bang in January by being named one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 in Art and Style, thanks to her growing roster of magazine covers and a successful lingerie line.  

#2 

Then, in February Graham landed the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, becoming the first plus-size model to ever earn the highly coveted spot, and catapulting her to stardom. 

#3

Just a few weeks later, Graham co-hosted E!’s Academy Awards red carpet coverage on Feb. 22 alongside Zanna Rassi, Kris Jenner and Giuliana Rancic wearing one insanely beautiful dress.

Had a wonderful time with these gorgeous ladies on @enews tonight! #Oscars // dress by @baotranchi //

#4

March brought the in-demand model to Paris, where she walked in H&M’s show at Paris Fashion Week. C’est bien!

#5

She covered Maxim’s April issue, and then Cosmpolitan’s August issue and Self in October, to name a few. Shall we go on? 

#6

We shall. In May, the supermodel appeared as Joe Jonas’ love interest in the video for DNCE’s “Toothbrush.” Jonas, Graham and DNCE were all praised for the move. The super sexy video didn’t hurt, either. 

#7

Graham was unsurprisingly named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year in early November, but the month ended up being a double win when she was presented with a Barbie made in her likeness, complete with touching thighs

#8

The very last day of November left us with one reason to be excited for 2017 ― she became the first plus-size model to land the cover of British Vogue.

#9

Finally, Graham made her debut as a judge on the “America’s Next Top Model” reboot on Dec. 12, alongside Rita Ora, stylist Law Roach and photographer Drew Elliot. 

Bow down. 2016 was a great year for Graham.

18 Feminist Bright Spots In The Hellscape Of 2016

Let us begin with the obvious. For many women, 2016 was a deflating nightmare of epic proportions.

It was singular in terms of shittiness, really. One of the top news stories was the unearthing of decade-old footage of Donald Trump boasting that he likes to grab women by the pussy ― and he went on to be elected as America’s 45th president. The glass ceiling stands. Reproductive rights are under attack. It’s… not great.

But! Last year was also filled with some pretty solid moments for women in the worlds of sports, entertainment and yes, politics and reproductive rights. We swear.

In the spirit of kicking off 2017 on a more positive note, we rounded up 18 of the brightest spots for women from the last year. Onwards and (hopefully?!) upwards.

The Most Notable Baby Names Of 2016

The defining event of 2016 may have been the presidential election, but the political names that hit the headlines ― notably Donald, Hillary and Bernard ― are unlikely to find themselves on an overwhelming number of new baby birth certificates. And so for Nameberry’s “Names of the Year,” we’ve mostly looked beyond politics to other bold names that reflect current trends and are prime to inspire baby names of the future.

Bowie

Though the music world lost three beloved, iconic figures this year ― Prince, David Bowie and Leonard Cohen ― it was Bowie’s adopted surname (he was born David Jones) that almost immediately became a viable name for babies. Bowie wasn’t totally unheard of as a baby name before, but now has shot up to number 453 on Nameberry, and become an instant celebrity fave. Actor Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale in “Twilight”) even chose Bowie it for his daughter Presley’s middle name.

Maeve

In October, the new hit series, “Westworld,” premiered on HBO. The action takes place in a futuristic Wild West theme park, where the residents are not what they seem. Thandie Newton plays park host Maeve Millay. No spoilers here, but know that the sharp, simple Irish name was originally worn by a warrior queen. It’s the latest in a long line of Irish baby names to catch on in the U.S., currently ranked in the top 500 and rising.

Lin-Manuel

”Hamilton” dominated Broadway this year, becoming a perpetually sold-out, must-see show ― a mix of rap and musical theater unlike anything before it. It earned a record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, winning 11, along with a Grammy and a Pulitzer Prize. At the center of it all is actor, rapper, composer, and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Lin-Manuel Miranda. A native New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent, Miranda’s first name comes from a poem about the Vietnam War, “Nana Roja Para Mi Hijo Lin Manuel.”

Wilder

Wilder appeals to parents for plenty of reasons. It’s preppy and outdoorsy, an unexpected name with an on-trend sound.  It may even be the William of the future. Wilder makes the Names of the Year list thanks to the late comic actor, Gene Wilder. The star of “Young Frankenstein” and “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” passed away in August. Born Jerome Silberman, Gene Wilder took his stage name from American writer Thornton Wilder, reminding us that the name is nicely literary, too.

Boomer

New dad Michael Phelps joked that his son would “definitely be the cool kid” thanks to the distinctive name he and wife Nicole Johnson chose for their May 2016 baby. Boomer’s not just another celebrity kid. The Olympian’s son commands over 750,000 Instagram followers of his own. While there may not be many babies named Boomer, going with your heart and making a name by appending –er to the end of any beginning are two of the lessons we predict this upbeat name to promote.

Simone

This French classic got a double shot of adrenaline when not one but two Simones became shooting-star record breakers in the 2016 Rio Olympics: Simone Biles was the vault and floor gold medalist, setting a U.S. record high of four medals in a single Olympics, while Simone Manuel became the first African-American female swimmer to win a gold medal. The name also was borne by two prominent French writers ― feminist Simone de Beauvoir and philosopher/writer Simone Weil who could provide further inspiration.

Wrigley

When the Chicago Cubs pulled off their astounding World Series win this year, ending a 108-year championship drought, their fans went ballistic, and some of them wanted to honor the team in their offsprings’ names. But rather than call their cubs Cub or Ben or Bryan or any other player name, they may discover a more subtle and circuitous reference: Wrigley ― for the name of the winners’ playing field. Miss America 2009 Katie Stam used it after losing a bet to her husband when the Cubs won the Series. And that baby Wrigley (better than Wiggly) likely won’t be the last!

Aziz

Aziz Ansari is the creator, writer and star of the innovative Netflix show “Master of None,” representing the impressive strides made this year in the diversification of the TV landscape. Ansari, who is the son of Muslim immigrants from India, tackles serious cultural issues in a smart, satirical, witty way. The lively and colorful name Aziz, which means powerful, respected and beloved, is common in the Muslim world. There’s even a girls’ name equivalent, Aziza. 

Bruno

 

The unstoppable Bruno Mars released his third studio album in 2016, won two Grammy Awards, and became one of the few performers to appear at a second Super Bowl halftime show. That’s quite the year, and it’s safe to say that parents might take note of his distinctive first name. Born Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno is the singer’s childhood nickname. We may also see more babies named Mars.

Cuba

One of the big stories of the year was the restoration of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the U.S. after 50 years, followed by the death of leader Fidel Castro in November. Apart from its political reverberations, Cuba is a geographical place name (it was on the popularity lists back in the 1890s), associated with Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr., whose roots are not in Cuba but Barbados. With place names for babies now hot and parents looking beyond the popular Savannah and London, Cuba may enjoy wider use.

Ivanka

In the sea of ordinary names most visible during this tumultuous political cycle, the name of the President-elect’s influential daughter stands out as one of the most distinctive. Ivanka is quite common in Slavic countries as a nickname for Ivana (her mother’s name). Despite its exotic appeal, it’s likely to remain a single-celebrity name in the U.S. for the foreseeable future. Ivanka’s larger impact on girls’ names may be inspiring parents to name their daughters after their moms.

Alden

 

Alden Ehrenreich is slated to play the young Han Solo, aka the new pilot of the Millennium Falcon, in a new “Star Wars” spin-off film. Steven Spielberg himself discovered Ehrenreich a dozen years ago at a bat mitzvah. The actor has worked steadily since, but Solo should prove to be his biggest role by far. We’ve yet to meet many children called Han, but Alden fits right in with current favorites like Landon and Aiden.

The Most Breathtaking, Inspiring Christmas Trees Of 2016

Putting up a Christmas tree is a cherished holiday ritual for many families around the globe. But the tradition has changed drastically over the years.

Wealthy German families began bringing trees into their homes during Christmastime in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The trees were often decorated with wax candles, sweets, and apples. It was a magical sight, but also a real fire hazard.

The creation of the first light bulb changed the tradition dramatically. During Christmas of 1880, the inventor Thomas Edison hung a strand of electric lights outside his laboratory in New Jersey. In 1882, his friend and partner Edward H. Johnson had the idea to string 80 red, white and blue light bulbs around his Christmas tree.

Decades later, Christmas trees have evolved into fantastic displays of creativity, featuring thousands of multi-colored electric lights and strings. From Tokyo to Bethlehem, here are some of 2016’s most over-the-top Christmas trees.

Madonna’s Anti-Trump Cover Of Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ Is The Antidote To 2016

Any time you think that pop music crown might be slipping off Madonna’s head, she readjusts, smirks and places it back to its rightful place.

The Material Girl revived her Tears of a Clown show on Friday night to support the charity Raising Malawi and we seriously don’t know where to begin.

Not only did she raise $ 7.5 million dollars to benefit the lives of Malawi orphans, according to The Associated Press, but she also twerked with Ariana Grande, got handcuffed by Sean Penn, made president-elect Donald Trump her own personal punching bag and delivered a cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” we’ll need years of therapy to fully process. 

Packed with celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, James Corden and Paris Hilton amid Miami’s Art Basel festival, the fundraiser spotlighted Madonna’s ability to do just about anything for a good cause. 

(See: Madonna offering oral sex to anyone who promised to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.)

Grande took the stage to auction off one of the looks from Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour. The two apparently wowed the crowd with a song and dance number, as well as sharing a brief kiss, AP reports.

At one point in the evening, ex-husband Penn somehow wound in the spotlight ― the former couple’s 1985 wedding photo was up for auction ― to encourage everyone to open their pocketbooks.

Penn crawled through her legs to get up on stage and then handcuffed her in front of the crowd. Madonna then offered to marry the actor a second time if he bid $ 150,000. 

“For once, he’s not the one being arrested,” she said. 

Thankfully, Bethenny Frankel, who was also in attendance, (random, but helpful) captured the moment in all its glory on Snapchat.  

But Madge truly outdid herself with her anti-Trump pièce de résistance, the performance of  “Toxic” while distorted images of Trump flashed on screen in the background. 

Seated on a chair the entire performance, Madonna cooed lyrics like “You know that you’re toxic,” while backdropped by a photo of Trump with a “Pinnochio” nose and quotes from the president-elect about building a wall

“I’m not being too opinionated?” she asked the audience after the performance. “Too extreme? I’m not insulting anymore? I must not be doing something right.”

And then she auctioned off the actual chair she was sitting on. 

She did it. She really did it. Madonna took four minutes to save the world. Watch the full performance below:
