Mean girls, mean women, women’s legs and mass displays of pink: what's been trending in the Twittersphere?


1. Mean Girls 10th anniversary

Whereas the true aficionado of Noughties high school chick flicks (with a serious message) will recognise She’s The Man as the pinnacle of the genre (Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum and Vinnie Jones – now there’s a cast), the Twittersphere has been celebrating the #MeanGirls10thAnniversary. As well as the inevitable ‘then and now’ aspersions cast in the general direction of Lindsay Lohan, fans (and their coerced male colleagues) wore pink to mark the occasion in, er, style. Did you?


Plus, a very special mention for Amazon’s hijacking of the hashtag. Mean Girls and powersports accessories: the natural fit.


2. Jennifer Lawrence

Everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence… don’t they? What? The Oscars regular, Hunger Games star and poster girl for the Subway Chicken Jalapeno Melt was voted FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World 2014. While Dan Jude, FHM 100 Sexiest editor (how does that look on LinkedIn?) said that ‘men the world over have fallen in love with her kooky charm’, but not every member of the fairer sex agreed with the judgement:


The major revelation was not that JLaw’s legs aren’t that special to some, but that she knocked out a pavement pizza at Madonna’s post-Oscars party… and even better, that her behaviour was much to the disapproval of Ms Slippers ‘n’ Cocoa herself, Miley Cyrus - summed up beautifully in three words by Vanity Fair France:


3. Vagenda - #vagenda

And just to juxtapose the previous item with a far more important story (although possibly not to those who voted in the FHM Sexiest poll), #vagenda trended this week for, as one Twitter user put it so well, ‘as feminists and as people, we deserve more than this".


Again, not everyone agreed with The Vagenda: a Zero-Tolerance Guide to the Media, ‘two bloggers' online crusade against glossy women’s magazines’. Like The Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon.


4. Susanna Reid ('s legs) - #GoodMorningBritain

While we’re on the subject of the objectification of women what to wear crises, pity the darling(s) of British television, Susanna Reid(‘s legs). The star of ITV’s new-look breakfast show #GoodMorningBritain must face daunting wardrobe decisions on a daily basis (don’t we all?), and probably a large outlay on waxing and tanning (don’t we all?) if the majority of viewers tune in just to stare at her pins. Trousers today? Better not. And then she had the nerve to keep them hidden behind a desk – an outrageous act that sparked a ‘ridiculous Twitter outrage’:


At least Susannah was happy:


5. Blossom #blossom #cherry

On a lighter note, as they say, Twitter was awash with images of beauty this week. No, we’re not talking about any members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but #blossom. Yes, this was the week that the sakura (#cherry blossom) burst into beautiful bloom in Japan and so Twitterers across the world went mad for posting pics of pink (and white) flowering prunus trees.


6. #MetGala

OMG, it's just the most stylish event of the year and it happened! The best and worst dressed rankings are trending on Twitter... who were your stand outs?
