No Filter: Da Brat Rings in the Holidays as Santress and Mrs. Claus!

Welcome to No Filter! This is the place where we talk about the celesbian Instagrams of the week, annotated with the hot commentary that could only come from me!

Hello Chef, can I have those shoes? Thanks so much!

Do you ever wonder “What’s Ashley Benson up to?” Sometimes I do, and then I find out it is… exactly the same thing that she usually is doing. Comforting! In some ways!

A Quinn Wilson moodboard? I’m into it.

Nicey, I am begging you to release the shapewear line!!!!!

SANTRESS AND MRS.CLAUS!!!!!! What else needs to be said!

Stacy London’s perfect grey streak has thrilled me since 2003, and it shows no signs of stopping!

Sometimes Trace makes me want to like… get married, settle down, get a dog? You know?

A Saturday Knight, get it??! A pun!!!

Look at this group of absolute stunners. My god.

Wait, a blazer? But make it tracksuit??? Brilliant!

A moment of dance to end the installation? We love to see it!

  1. I appreciated Da Brat’s pun in that photo description, (w)rapper. Also I’m happy I just know who Da Brat is, sometimes I only recognize people in this column from seeing them in this column. And I liked Janet Mock’s explanation for why they were all at a restaurant, being three times weekly, and wearing masks between courses and all that.
