THE 5 MOST OMG MOMENTS IN 2018

3 weeks ago | BY Huma Hazarika Sharma

We still can’t get ’nuff of…

After the bummer that 2016 was, and 20-17 doing only a tad better on the #HappinessScale, we all waited with bated breath to see what 20-18 would bring with it, and we got to say it started off with a bang in every way, and proceeded to give us #StokeWorthy moments repeatedly. We’d say we are all stoked out, but no, we can’t wait to see what the remaining few months bring with ‘em. In the meantime, we give you our top 5 OMFG moments so far this year, so keep ‘em eyes peeled.

29th January, 2018 – BLACK PANTHER RELEASES WORLDWIDE

The most badass movie out of the Marvel Comics stable in a while, Black Panther and the fantastical African kingdom of Wakanda was epic for so many reasons, especially the crazya** costumes+jewellery and that sick original soundtrack #WakandaForeverBetches
STYLE CUE: Take a cue from the badass warriors of Wakanda and embrace chokers which are back bigger than ever.

14th April, 2018 – LET’S HEAR IT FOR BEYCHELLA
Queen Bey took Coachella by storm with her ‘troupe’ of dancers (geddit?) and gave us all a major case of #fomo and #OutfitEnvy with her totally LIT duet with sis Solange and her equally custom-made ‘stumes through the night.
STYLE CUE: She turned all the people who rubbished the 90s comeback as just a fad, into believers. OTT bling-ed out sweatshirts with ripped shorts? Yes, please

19th May, 2018 – THE ROYAL WEDDING

We never believed in fairytales, until news of the burgeoning romance between the man of every teenage girl’s dreams back in the early ’00s, Prince William, and actor Meghan Markle swept through lands far and near, and admit it, you were as jelly as we were. The Royal wedding was perhaps the biggest OMG moment of the year for more reasons than just Markle’s simple yet totally gorg wedding dress, and boy are we glad we were able to catch the action even if it was from afar.
STYLE CUE: The Duchess of Sussex showed us that a bride can totally do minimal on her big day, and still look super chic and hawt.

June, 2018 –  PEECEE+NICK JONAS MAKE IT OFFICIAL

Well, this one dates back to May last year when the two lovebirds first appeared together on the red carpet at the Met Gala, but escaped the paps with the #JustFriends tag. FF to June this year, and PeeCee & Jonas finally confirmed their top secret romance on the ‘gram, and finally made it #InstagramOfficial on 18th August when they had a close-knit roka at PeeCee’s pad in Bom-bae.
STYLE CUE: Well, all of what PeeCee wears is pretty much on point everytime. And, her roka outfit totally made a strong case for minimal too.

6th September, 2018: SECTION 377 REPEALED
The 158-year ‘ol law was finally struck down by the Indian SC in a landmark judgement that was hailed by the LGBTQIA community the world over, and even those that don’t identify as either. And about damn time too since 2018 has officially been the year that struck down shaming of any kind, and made #diversity & #inclusivity the buzzwords right from fashion to the movies to the streets #LoveWinsOverAllElse
STYLE CUE: If Rupaul’s Drag Race and JVN from Queer Eye have taught us anything, it’s that gender-bending fashion is no longer taboo, and expressing yourself is what’s in.
