Amigovia: Looking back on 2014 glamour

Another year has ended and a new one begun. Even though it’s just a change in date (see also Life page 4), there is always the hope and anticipation of life changing events in the new year. Let’s take a look back at some of last year’s stand-out happenings in pop culture...

Wedding bells

Weddings we wished we attended in 2014 as they all had to have been beautiful with fun receptions.

After the legalization of same sex marriage in the United Kingdom this year, Sir Elton John and his partner of twenty one years were finally able to tie the knot. They wed exactly nine years to the date of their civil union. How sweet.

The other stand out wedding this year was that of infamous bachelor George Clooney! Yes, he did in fact finally tie the knot at age 52 with Amal Alamuddin, a British-Lebanese human rights lawyer. She has a royal vibe in my opinion. Classy pick George.

The biggest wedding of 2014 was definitely the Kimye union – between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian – which took place in Florence, Italy back in May. The wedding pic posted by the couple quickly became the most liked picture in Instagram history with 2.5 million.

Goodbyes

This past year we lost some Hollywood legends. Famed American comedienne Joan Rivers passed away as did actor/comedian Robin Williams.

The fashion world said goodbye to legendary designer Oscar de la Renta in October. Born in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta became world famous after first gaining notoriety for dressing Jacqueline Kennedy. For the rest of his life he became known for dressing powerful women.

Model behaviour

The Victoria’s Secret angels landed in London for their annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show which included performances from arguably the biggest artists of the year in Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift, who fits right in with the models.

For the first time ever, the show’s final piece – the Fantasy Bra – was worn by two women: Adriana Lima and Alessandria Ambrosio both walked down the catwalk together. This is the first time I can recall more than one model wearing the priceless, bejeweled Fantasy Bra of the year.
Karlie Kloss was named model of the year by People magazine but, personally, I have to go with Kendal Jenner. She is everywhere!

Karlie has been around for a while now with slow and steady success whereas Kendall has blown up this year. She is absolutely making her mark as a serious high fashion model and, for the most part, has remained scandal free. Good for her!

So the year came and went with humans landing a probe on a comet and spending half the year obsessed with dumping buckets of ice water on their heads and filming it for charity, of course.
Happy New Year! May it be filled with everyone you wish for!
