In just 12 months, we’ve seen facepalms, celebration and solidarity nationwide. Grab your popcorn and tissues, and join us as we #throwback on the 17 moments of 2017 that truly gave us life!
1. Prince Harry’s proposal
Hearts broke (we know ours did!) as the Royal bachelor got down on one knee and popped the question to his American GF, Suits star Meghan Markle. That ring!
2. Beyonce’s Pregnancy Announcement
Keepin’ it Royal, let’s talk Queen B’s baby announcement. Most of us gals settle for a ‘bumpie’ or baby scan upload, but not Bey.
On Feb. 1, Beyoncé released some of the best news of 2017 with an iconic Instagram photoshoot. Beyoncé was pregnant – with twins. The two newest Carters, Sir and Rumi, were born in June.
3. One Love Manchester
Raising money in memory of the 22 tragically killed in a suicide attack in May, Manchester Arena reopened its doors as thousands, including survivors and bereaved relatives, joined hands to celebrate the city’s spirit. #WeAreManchester
4. Prue’s Bake-Off Fail
Perhaps one of 2017’s best fails was Prue’s premature announcement of Bake Off winner. That’s right, while on her hols, Prue Leith accidentally tweeted her congrats to series winner, Sophie, before the show had aired. Oh Prue…
5. Gemma Collins falling down a hole
No 2017 round up would be complete without mention of The GC and her fall through a trap door just moments after announcing Best TV Show at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. Oh Gem…
If you haven’t heard of #SaltBae, where have you been for all of 2017? Turkish chef quickly went viral as his sassy salt sprinkling tekkers seasoned the nation. With almost 3 million IG followers and a whole lotta memes, could #SaltBae be the biggest rise to fame of the year?
7. Stormzy on Love Island
While we commiserate the fact that Love Island 2k17 is over, we can’t help but look back over some of our highlights – from the wise words of Dr Marcel to the Kem and Chris bromance. But the ultimate moment has to be Stormzy making an appearance to offer the boys rap advice!
8. Michelle Obama at the Inauguration
After 8 years of photocalls, we’d expect Michelle Obama to be pro at hiding her true feelings. But at this year’s presidential inauguration, it all got a little too much for our fave former first lady. Her WTF side-eye look really was all of us!
9. Adele dedicates Album of the Year Grammy win to Beyoncé
There’s nothing quite like two of our fave gals coming together to salute one another. So of course, we loved Adele’s acceptance speech following her Album of the Year win at this year’s Grammy’s, as she even broke the award in half for her fellow musician. Bring it in gals!
What began as an exposé quickly became a viral social media movement, pathing the way for social change. Girls united across the nation with their #MeToo status and stories. Girl Power FTW!
11. La La Land’s Almost Oscar
Who can possibly forget envelopegate at The Oscars! Cutting La La Land’s moment short as the entire cast joined on stage to accept the award, producers broke up the party to announce that the winner of Best Picture was in fact Moonlight… *facepalm*
12. The Power of Wonder Woman
Which gal doesn’t just love a powerful female on the big screen? Becoming all of our #goals, Gal Gadot shines, as Patty Jenkins serves up humour, romance and kick-ass in equal helpings.
13. Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor
After plenty of hype and tons of trash talk, Mayweather returned from retirement to defeat McGregor in the ring.
14. Donatella Versace’s SS18 Show
Slippin’ us a side helping of nostalgia, Donatella Versace recreated one of the most iconic moments in catwalk history in her SS18 show. Cue Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen storming the runway…
15. Winona Ryder at the SAG Awards
Winona Ryder and her no less than 22 expressive faces during Stranger Things actor David Harbour’s acceptance speech at the 2017 Awards got us all asking RuOK?
16. Man’s not hot, never hot…
As far as viral content goes, Big Shaq’s Man’s Not Hot is up there! Propelling the rapper and comedian to internet stardom earlier this year, we just can’t get enough of the parody. With a festive version dropping, could Big Shaq make Christmas No.1?
17. Spitting bars at Coachella
We all know the pain… the person next to you shouting lyrics in your ear at a music festival. The only exception is when that person is as cute as the blonde kid that went viral for knowing every word to Migos and Drake tracks. All the feels!
