The Winter Olympics are officially upon us. Check out what the team is most excited about.
Annie: I am the biggest Olympic fan in the world! Probably has something to do with growing up in Salt Lake City and living the 2002 Olympics in Utah! To me, the opening ceremonies are WAY better than any awards show on TV. It’s about peace and friendship and it’s an incredible way for the whole world to come together and celebrate the spirit of competition.
Most excited about- umm EVERYTHING! DUH!
Mac: I love anything that requires wearing team uniforms. I’m excited to see anything in the ice rink aka ice skating, hockey, and curling.The Olympics are the closest things we’re getting to the Hunger Games so I’m here for it.
Liz:I am most excited to watch the free style skiing. I think that that part is always so amazing to watch! I’m also excited that Nastia Liukin will be reporting the events with the NBC team because I’m a big fan of her.
Last week we celebrated how good it is to be bad with Deadspin and Jaguar. At the event Jaguar unveiled their new F Type Coupe as well as screened the ads they showed during the Super Bowl.
Guests had a chance to test their villain level via a high tech photo booth, score some bragging points through a punting simulator, and were surprised when Colin Kaepernick drove up to unveil the new car.
Even though we’re hard at work in NYC we’ve been keeping our eyes on the couture shows in Europe. Our team picked looks that match their personalities.
Bianca: Though this outfit might look a little too future for the streets, it’s actually quite perfect for my everyday life. It’s convenient for running around the city (hands free with the fanny pack- a favorite in my accessory closet- and comfortable sneakers), provides protection for my clumsy moments with those knee/elbow pads (you can never be too safe), and it kinda looks like something a super hero would wear. I love the neutral grey color, the sharp lines and the geometric shape.
Mac: This dress is much like my personality, incredibly subtle of course. Much like any other panther on the runway I would have worn this floor length gown in the Versace finale. Snood is the cherry on top.
Annie: Sparkle!!! I’m obsessed with the magical glitter and sequins on this dress. I look like a snow queen! This cold weather has me hating winter, but this dress makes frost look pretty and glamorous - like a walking icicle!
If someone were to ask me if I was a feminist before I started what is now a nine-year journey of creating the largest video collection of women’s stories ever assembled, I would have said - sadly - “no.”
Today, as that journey continues to unfold, I know for certain that…
