When the internet fails or we simply share memes by directing our thoughts at our friends, we shall go "Hey, remember that slideshow they made once about the most memorable outfits of 2016? That was 'lit,' as we used to say." It is lit, and it is here, in all its cultural-compendium glory. ::beams mass command to share this link on Facebook at everyone reading::

Congratulations to Yousef Akbar for creating the highest slit known to man. A true feat of engineering.
At the 2016 Emmys, she finally got the fashion cred she deserved in green floor-length Prada and shouted her love for Holland Taylor from every camera angle.
Silver is reserved for 25 years together, but in celebrity-dom, 14 months, give or take, is just as long.
A lot of backstory comes with this Louis Vuitton look. This was the birth of Edgy Taylor Swift. And this was also the dress in which she danced with Tom Hiddleston. Oooh.
The end of an era, or how to go out on a high note.
