Fresh from the feed
1. Will Pakistan's real MVP please stand up?
Everyday is #ManCrushMonday with Arshad Khan, an 18-year-old chai walla (tea seller) who was discovered by photographer Javeria Ali at Islamabad. He became an overnight sensation, attracting the likes of media such as Buzzfeed, BBC and AFP.
when you realize your degree from melbourne university and a good job is useless and a #chaiwala is wooing more girls.— Hiba (@shh_imasecret) October 17, 2016
2. Luna's growing into a Legend
On the subject of little pretty things, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's daughter Luna enters into the sixth month of her life. The model shared an adorable video of her daughter's antics to celebrate.
3. The big five
Talking about milestones (on social media, at least), model Taylor Hill celebrates her five million followers on Instagram.
4. Walls of wonder
Meanwhile, another Taylor dedicated an Instagram post to her musical crushes, Kings of Leon, who just released WALLS, their seventh studio album.
5. Karlie and Kitty meet
Meanwhile, halfway across the globe, Swift's main squad member Karlie Kloss heads to Taiwan to meet Asia's favourite Sanrio girl.
6. Socks for bad girls
Rihanna announces her collaboration with Stance Muse on a new collection of socks, with cute promotional visuals to boot.
7. Revlon's new IT girl
Another music co-collaborator is seen in Ciara, who is Revlon's new ambassador. She treats us with her fresh face (or possibly a winning "no makeup-makeup look") before the big announcement.
8. Iman for Kenzo x H&M
On the makeup front, supermodel and Kenzo x H&M frontwoman Iman shares her beauty stash ahead of the show in New York City.
9. Papa Karl's girls get on board
Other models making appearances included Joan Smalls and Hailey Baldwin, who showed support for Karl Lagerfeld while showing off pretty rad hairstyles — we particularly love Smalls' mini top knots.
10. Donald Trump vs. Hilary Clinton, version three
Third time's the charm? Not quite, as the final presidential debate showed. From Trump calling Clinton a "nasty woman" (it's now a hashtag) to Clinton making a point about her wealth of experience over Trump's (yet again), America has once again become the laughing stock of the Internet.
