FashionMiami Swim Week 2016

This month’s Miami Swim Week has persevered through more than you might realize to continue the tradition of overwhelming us (in a good way) with sneak-peaks of next season’s swimwear! In May of this year, IMG announced that they would not be holding the ten years running Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Swim due to losing Mercedez Benz as the title sponsor.

The now “Swim Week 2016” was made possible through the efforts of a few public relations and production companies who introduced quite a few changes, including new and exciting runway locations. Mara Hoffman, for example, reserved Casa Casuarina – more commonly known as the Versace Mansion – for a display of her most recent and always stunning creations. Bold and colorful prints made an appearance across the board while some brands like Acacia Swimwear kept their color palette soft and simple. There really is a swimsuit (or five!) for any girl at Swim Week!

GeneralLulus Top Ten Movies of 2013!


Iron Man 3 – Best Action Hero

As the highest grossing film of 2013 at $1.2 billion, the Iron Man franchise has done it again! In Iron Man 3 we follow Tony Stark as he embarks on a journey to capture those responsible for destroying his personal world. Robert Downey Jr. can be our superhero anytime! 

Gravity – Best 3D/Science Fiction Thriller

The best 3D film since Avatar is Gravity, a science-fiction thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, who play astronauts. The film follows their involvement in the destruction of a space shuttle and their struggle to return back to Earth. Gravity has been praised for its cinematography and story alike, keeping us on our toes throughout the film.

American Hustle – Best Drama

After the success of Silver Linings Playbook, the anticipation of American Hustle was off the charts. Thankfully, this entertaining and humorous film definitely lived up to the hype. American Hustle tells the story of a con man and his partner who are forced to work for an FBI agent. With an all-star cast performing their hearts out, this original screenplay is a must-see for 2013.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Best Book to Film Adaptation 

The much anticipated second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy left us wanting more! In this film we follow along with everyone’s favorite heroine Katniss Everdeen as she embarks on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. With drama, danger, and some of the best costumes we’ve ever seen, we definitely give this epic film a three-finger salute.

This is the End – Best Comedy

A little apocalypse humor, anyone? Written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, This is the End presents a comedic all-star cast. The film follows the actors who play exaggerated and humorous versions of themselves trying to survive the apocalypse in Los Angeles. With lots of Hollywood cameos as an added bonus, this film is sure to have you laughing.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Best Fantasy/Adventure

As the second installment of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug chronicles the journey of Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and a band of dwarves as they attempt to reclaim their kingdom from Smaug. It’s a masterpiece that is as beautiful as it is daring and is a true tale of courage and friendship. Follow along on this epic adventure, just make sure you have 3 hours set aside first!

Blackfish – Best Documentary

The most talked about documentary of 2013 follows the life of Tilikum, an orca held captive in Sea World. The film focuses on his life in captivity and the dangers that result. This heart wrenching film with have you feeling sadness, fear, and even anger. Blackfish has made world news by exposing people to the gritty details of orcas living in captivity, leading to protests around the globe.

Captain Phillips – Best Action/Thriller

Captain Phillips is based on the true events of the 2009 hijacking of merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips. This film kept us on the edge of our seats, thanks in part to a show-stopping performance from Tom Hanks. Equally impressive is the debut performance of Barkhad Abdi who plays the lead pirate. The fact that this film is based on a true story makes it that much more thrilling!

The Great Gatsby – Best Drama

Who wouldn’t want to see a film staring Leonardo Dicaprio and Carey Mulligan!? This beautiful flick, based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is jam-packed full of crazy parties, great music, and beautiful costumes. We can’t help but love The Great Gatsby for its over-the-top extravagance. This film adaption of an American classic has helped us revisit the 1920’s in a fun and fabulous way.

Frozen – Best Animation 

Taking it back to the classic Disney musicals, Frozen is nothing shy of heartwarming. With a soundtrack that rivaled Beyoncé for the number one Billboard spot, you’re sure to get lost in the magical story of true love, adventure, and the cutest little snowman that you ever did meet! Kristen Bell is marvelous as the voice of our new favorite heroine, Anna, and watching her break out of the “damsel-in-distress” role made this movie a definite favorite for years to come.

CelebrityThe Mindy Project Season 2!

Anyone excited for The Mindy Project season 2? Well if you’re not amped yet, perhaps some of these juicy little tidbits will set your interest a-sizzling!

the mindy project season 2

Can we just skip to the chase and say that the most notable celebrity appearance in the works is none other than the loveable JAMES FRANCO! No need to get jealous though, girls, because love is not in the air for James and Mindy (who will be just arriving back from Haiti with her season finale fiance Casey). Instead, Franco will be playing a new character in the office coined as the “Anti-Mindy”. Hmm, sounds interesting.

Besides the Franco phenomenon, there is a wedding in store, and Mindy will still be sporting her newly sheared locks from the end of season one. AND, if you’ve ever heard of a little band called The National, expect to see some special footage in a festival-themed episode.

The Mindy Project Season 2 kicks off on September 17th!
