No Filter: Sarah Paulson And Holland Taylor Get Festive

Hello and welcome back to another weekly dose of No Filter, and oh what a week it’s been! This week, the rest of the media finally acknowledged that Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell are (almost definitely) dating, and the pair celebrated by going to a Thai grocery and buying some spring rolls:

What’s going on with these famous queer celebrities? Are Cara Delevingne and Amber Heard doin’ it, as the Daily Mail loves to periodically speculate? Maybe! We have a lot to cover, so let’s get to work.

Lauren Jauregui and her girlfriend Lucy Vives had a pretty fucking cute Christmas despite love being a lie, nobody tell them. Camila Cabello quit Fifth Harmony a couple of weeks ago and according to this very reliable wiki, Camila and Lauren were probably an item at some point. We know this because of definitive proof like, “Camila said if Lauren got arrested for something, she would get arrested for being so sweet.” Anyway, nobody knows anything for sure and hey, Lauren and Lucy look pretty cozy these days.

I can’t deal with sweet baby Gaby Dunn as Princess Leia, looking very earnest and ready to defeat the Imperial army and/or get out of jury duty.

This has been maybe the most heartwarmingly adorable No Filter I’ve ever put together.

Meanwhile, Brittani Nichols decided to rebrand; she is no longer the Bad Boi of Instagram and is instead leaning more towards Tender Boi for 2017.

Stephanie Beatriz! She’s in London.

Cara Delevingne is a very famous supermodel whose unique look is prized by clothing designers.
Families who do this freak me out, if I’m being real with you.

Above-average fondness for Dubsmash and really excellent haircuts seem to run in Evan Rachel Wood’s family.

I can’t with these two anymore.

  1. Wait. Does my love for No Filter mean love isn’t a lie after all? Nah. But that picture of Lauren Jauregui and Lucy Vives. Let’s definitely not tell them. Love may be a lie, but we don’t have to be monsters about it.

  2. I’m starting to suspect that Stef writes the No Filter column just to surreptitiously notify us that her heart, in fact, has a gooey chocolate center after all, no matter how much she insists that Love Is A Lie. <3

  3. P.S. Facebook does that ‘trending’ bullshit and one of the names this morning was Queen Latifah so I hovered, thinking it might be “Queen Latifah Finally Figures Out What She’s Doing Occasionally Showing Up in No Filter,” but in fact it was just that her car was stolen. Big letdown.

  4. God bless this column, every week when I hit my limit of sad world news I come here for some necessary upbeat queer content
