No Filter: Carrie Brownstein Rolls Deep

Welcome back to No Filter, the most important part of a nutritious breakfast. This week, Autostraddle went to the GLAAD Awards and met a lot of celebrities, which I won’t post here because it’s cheating (but trust me, it was great).

This is what your girlfriend Lena Waithe looks like with Autostraddle’s design director Alex Vega at the GLAAD Awards. It’s very casual and not a big deal at all; honestly it’s about time your girlfriend Lena Waithe started meeting your friends.

Carrie Brownstein went above and beyond to prove that all of Carmen’s favorite people know each other. Carrie Brownstein is the queen of Brunches I’d Like To Attend Someday.

Queen Latifah is really into home improvement, I guess.

Soko giving Chuckie Doll vibes in this chilling video.

Samira’s been really killing it in the cute selfie department this week, but this is the post I’ve been thinking about the most.

Cara Delevingne thinking thoughts at the Eiffel Tower, probably about that time she and St. Vincent allegedly got engaged there. Seriously though, she opened up a lot about mental health this week (and so did Ruby Rose!) and that is awesome.

It was amazing.

  1. I’m going to a Carrie Brownstein interview and book signing this Sunday, so I will try to casually ask her if she will come to an Autostraddle brunch featuring Stef(and the other fabulous staddlers and staff members)!

  2. My favorite part of the Carrie Brownstein picture is that Roxanne Gay accidentally blurted out “you are very attractive” when she met Carrie. Which, let’s be honest, is exactly what I would do if I ever saw Carrie Brownstein.

  3. Thanks to Carrie Brownstein, I’ve now spent a full fifteen minutes catching up on Amber Tablyn’s life. Turns out she’s married to Tobias from Arrested Development which is hilarious. Also she once described herself as “straight but queer” which is less hilarious.

    Autostraddle, you never cease to add richness and depth to my life.
