Before mini skirts were made popular around the late '60s, they were quite controversial. Fast forward to today, they've become a staple in many women's wardrobes. As seen on some members of the Clozette Community, styling a mini skirt brings out a certain kind of charm.
The week surely went by so fast, didn’t it? With these past few days filled with exciting happenings, it was a blur. Missed everything? Before you continue your fun this weekend, make sure you’re updated on this week’s hottest buzz. From Jennifer Aniston posting a reunion selfie with the Friends cast and breaking an Instagram record to Kylie Jenner’s Rise and Shine song becoming a viral hit, here’s a quick recap of all that you should know.
Jennifer Aniston breaks an Instagram record and the app with a Friends reunion
Earlier this week, Jennifer Aniston finally made her debut on Instagram by posting a selfie with the whole cast of Friends. In just the first five hours and 16 minutes of her joining, she broke an Instagram record and got herself one million followers. Now she’s the fastest to get that amount of followers, snatching the Guinness World Record title from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s @sussexroyal account. Funnily enough, this caused the app to crash, making it impossible for people to follow her for a while. Now, the actress’ follower count is on 13.2 million and counting and we’re so excited to witness much more of her everyday hijinks and Friends throwbacks through the platform.
Kylie Jenner’s Rise and Shine song becomes a viral hit
We got a glimpse of a number of fascinating things in the office tour Kylie Jenner posted on YouTube last week. Still, the online world honed in on one specific moment where Kylie sang to wake up her daughter Stormi. We got just one brief but glorious line, “rise and shine,” but the internet already exploded with this rare occasion of her showing off her vocal range. Aside from inspiring the creation of memes, this viral snippet also prompted fans to make parodies and remixes with the short tune. Even Ariana Grande did a cover for fun. But not everyone’s enjoying it as much. Hilariously, Stormi, after dancing to a remixed version of the song for a few seconds, requested her mum to change it into a song by her dad, Travis Scott.
