Best and worst week ending 26 January 2014

A round-up of what we're loving this week... and what we're hating.

Best and worst weekly wrap


LIKEThe Wolf of Wall Street

Throwing money around like you just don't care. The Wolf of Wall Street opens this week and with it a marketing campaign that's the stuff of a capitalist's wet dream. Dotted around the city are glass boxes with hundred dollar bills being blown around Leonardo DiCaprio's face – heavily guarded by armed security, of course.

LIKEGalactic Fashion.

If Helmut Lang's pre-fall 2014 collection and Sydney design darling Dion Lee's first concept store in Sydney are anything to go by, space-influenced apparel will be big in 2014. Even sass & bide have a few metallic pieces up their well-cut sleeve.


Sexting just became a little bit safer. Hunter Moore, 2012's "Most-Hated Man on the Internet" and purveyor of revenge porn, has been arrested for hacking into emails in the pursuit of dirty pics.

LIKEMirrored sunglasses.

Alessandra Ambrosio and Blake Lively are showing us how to add a touch of sport-luxe to our pool-side look. If it's good enough for the super beautiful…

LIKECommon sense.

Justin Bieber was arrested for drag racing, so what does he do? Swears at the police and informs them he's under the influence of marijuana and prescription meds. What's that? You can't produce music from prison? Good.


DISLIKEThe Warmest 100.

Stop trying to predict Triple J's Hottest 100. We like a little suspense, okay? And we simply don't have the willpower to not scroll down to discover who will probably come in at number one.

DISLIKEMisguided Australia Day merchandise.

T-shirts reading 'Australia: Established 1788'? 'Property of an Aussie boy'? Who hired these idiots and how quickly can we fire them?

DISLIKESalted caramel.

Sydney is in a collective salted caramel-induced coma. Enough already. We're moving on to the Salted Coconut Espresso Martinis at the newly re-launched Minskys.


This new trend has taken over #yolo as the best way to highlight scum on your newsfeed. Anyone who films themselves downing a drink in order to put it up on Facebook and nominating a mate to do the same thing should be deleted at your next possible convenience.

DISLIKENoel Gallagher.

The bad boy of British rock, Noel Gallagher, has been trash-talking music videos from his Oasis-era days. Show some class, Noel – don't look back in anger, I heard you say.
