No Filter: Carrie Brownstein, Take It Down A Notch

Welcome back to No Filter, your weekly dose of celebrity Instagram with a side of whatever Kristen Stewart’s been doing with herself (this week, it was wearing Chanel to a Chanel Oscars party). This week, everybody went to the Oscars and it was very impressive and we found out that Caitlyn Jenner and Andreja Pejic are not dating (we didn’t even think they were, but OK!).
Look at this perfect queen eating chocolate in a limo. Janelle’s overall Oscar season Instagram situation has been really top notch.

Carrie Brownstein wore this insanely perfect suit to a Sleater-Kinney show in Portland and none of us are ever going to look this good in a blazer so we might as well give up now.–I49jWcO/

Trace Lysette, you need to calm down. I am actually upset by how long I’ve been watching this gif.

Evan Rachel Wood is high again. Girl, it’s a cheetah.

Listen, I don’t know anything about knitting but I know that I am obsessed with this sweater Jasika Nicole made.

You know what we haven’t been covering nearly enough of in this column? Sara Quin’s cat drinking a La Croix.

Join us next week, when I’d like to have a better understanding of who exactly Danielle Brooks is taping up. Is it me? I hope it’s me.

  1. I assume Danielle Brooks is taping up her boobs? Or is this one of those things where you know what she’s doing but are pretending not to know for humorous purposes?

    • I didn’t think she was pretending not to know, I thought it was just innuendo. But maybe that just says something about me…

  2. I totaly blanked out for a moment after that Carrie Brownstein picture. She’s just soooo cool. It’s like do you want to be her bff? Date her? Or be like her? Fuck!

  3. I’m watching a Portland rerun and sometimes I don’t even like the episode but I can’t stop watching just to look at Carrie Brownstein’s face for longer time.
    You aren’t helping, Stef!

  4. Has Janelle Monae officially come out and I missed it? Because it’s my greatest wish for 2017
