Dear Gossips,

Probably only Canadians are celebrating how majorly Canadian the Emmys were last night. Or…maybe not.

Millennial Pink is the official name of this colour. Winning Pink is what I’m calling it from now on at award shows. Gwyneth Paltrow wore pink, in this material, taffeta, when she won the Oscar.
