I'm fairly certain that I've already expressed my love for red carpet events on this blog, lamenting about how they're always such an exciting convergence of fashion and celebrity, or something along those lines. Having been reminded of this fun fact about me, I'm sure you can assume how excited I get about the Met Gala, one of the fashion industry's most important nights of the year. Not only does it bring together a guest list of celebrities exclusively picked by Anna Wintour to celebrate fashion, but it's really one of the only commercialised events that sees the red carpet as the centre of the night. Unlike the Oscars, or the Gramys, it's as far as the public eye is allowed to go. What happens inside the Metropolitan Museum after the red carpet is rolled up continues to be a mystery every single year. However, fortunately enough, I just so happen to have a number of sources who have shared exclusive details of what actually went down at last night's event. You heard it here first.

Being equipped with your first bra is a momentous experience in any pre-pubescent girls life. More than a support for fat that hasn't arrived yet, your first bra is the physical indicator of closing the door on childhood and barging through the door of adolescence. Typically, my entry through that door was clumsy as fuck. It was in 5th class when I came to the awkward realisation that all of my friends were wearing bras, and I was not. I had missed Bra Initiation Day apparently. Of course, I withheld this detail from them and the next day I dutifully wore one of my sister's bras into school.

What has Lena Dunham been criticised for now you ask? Well, in her recently published memoir, "Not That Kind of Girl", she recalls an incident in which a seven year old Lena is overcome with anatomical curiosity of the female body and opens the lips of her baby sister's vagina to compare to her own (and then subsequently finds tiny pebbles inside). But the essay has been recently twisted by conservative, right wing writers from TruthRevolt.org and The National Review and is essentially retold as a story of sexual abuse, a claim which has now cantered it's way around the internet and echoed by a surprising amount of support. Let's discuss.
