11 reasons to be thankful this year
seriously, these things rule.

It helps that some of our fave girl crushes--think Chloe Norgaard, Alison Mosshart, Demi Lovato, and Lizzy Plapinger from MS MR--have all gone Rainbow Brite.

While Raf Simons settles in at Dior and Alexander Wang gets in the groove at Balenciaga, we have Nicolas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton and Jeremy Scott at Moschino to look forward to. There’s never a dull moment in fashion--especially not this year!

There’s Elle and Dakota Fanning, Lana Del Rey and her sister Chuck Grant, Cara and Poppy Delevingne, Rooney and Kate Mara, Solange and Beyonce Knowles, Rachel and Jack Antonoff, Este, Alana, and Danielle Haim, Mary-Kate, Ashley, and Elizabeth Olsen....the list goes on and on.
