No Filter: I’m Emotional About This Photo of Melissa King and Michelle Yeoh

Welcome back to No Filter! This is the place where I pull the best content from celesbian IG for your viewing enjoyment! Let’s go!

Yes, I am always a sucker for Keke being simply stunning!

Okay okay yes this is back to back Keke but COME on this breakdown of her outfit for Miranda Cosgrove’s 16th birthday!! Wow typing that sentence made me feel easily 1,000 years old?

See this is how you know I am always full of shit, because I have been railing about how much I am not into the floral trends this season, and then one woman over 50 pops on a dress and I am like “welllll let’s hear it out!” Smdh. Rings though! Love those without complication!

Now…do I really have to say anything?

It is so brave of me to include this image despite the fact that almost I cannot look at it due to having worked at an ice cream store in my youth and dreading the times where someone wanted a dipped cone. It’s so hard! It literally goes upside down!

King Princess on tour!!! Whomst among us has knees able to handle the strain of live music? I simply do not.

I did check to see if Doja and Megan interacted, if they did, I cannot locate a record of it, but then again I didn’t look like super hard? You feel me.

Hey, it’s Che Diaz, I’m back!*

*notably this is from Cynthia’s IG but Sara hasn’t posted about it yet and I had to make the joke, artists work with what they have!

Not to be like, 2014 basic, but I have gotten deeply into a green smoothie moment when I am having a poor spell* and I really feel seen by this image.

*post two glasses of wine because I am in my mid 30s.

Come for the sparkle skirt set, stay for the adorable laughing and posing video with Sam Hanratty!

So what are you gonna say at my funeral, now that you've killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life, whose heart I broke without a gun to my head.

  1. Christina! How are you so good at putting this together each week? (I feel like maybe I shouldn’t gush about how much I love this column *every* week because it might get a little weird, but you guys, I really love this column.)

  2. Michelle Yeoh I had the biggest crush on her as a teenager. She and Brigitte Lin were the main reasons I got into 80s and 90s HK action cinema. What a goddess no doubt. Everything Melissa King said! Same :D
