Model of the Month Club: March

This month the right sidebar is dedicated to Anais Mali, a 20 year old French model who walked every major runway from New York to Paris.  Her exotic look was able to translate seamlessly between Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Givenchy and Missoni, to name a few.

Recently she was featured in Vogue and Italian Vogue, and was the face of Levi’s.  I have a feeling there will be much more of that to come.

World’s Largest Fashion Show. Ever.

Last night I should have been one of the 1,500 guests at Lincoln Center watching 150 models walking in the world’s largest fashion show.  I should have been in the front row, sitting among the magazine editors and celebrities.  I should have seen the 9 act show, 171 looks in all.

But instead I was in a lecture on The Oresteia written by Aeschylus in 458 BCE.  I was in my Greek Mythology class instead of attending (or at least viewing the live stream online) this fabulous event.

This fashion show, hosted by Andre Leon Talley of Vogue and fashion blogger/model Hanneli Mustaparta, was supposed to kick start Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out.

The venue was pretty amazing, like a Shakespearian theater in the round.

I love Carolina Herrera’s Fashion’s Night Out shirt, it is the perfect representation of both her and her sense of style.

Thankfully, CBS is airing a recap of the show Sept. 14.

When TV Stars Collide

First of all, the Emmys are not like the Oscars.  Yes, they are both award shows and fabulous celebrites attend, win awards, and then throw afterparties, but they are by no means equal.  I love T.V., a lot, however I find that they do not dress as well as their silver screen counter parts.

You don’t see Rachel Zoe freaking out about what her client is going to wear to the Emmys, it just doesn’t happen.  Maybe it is because you can win an Emmy year after year and it isn’t a huge deal, Jon Stewart has like 6 of them.  But rarely do you see n toting 6 Academy Awards.

That said there were some beautiful dresses.  My favorite (and yes this could be because of my addiction to anything McQueen and the fact that we share the same birthday) was Anna Paquin’s black Alexander McQueen dress.  While the bottom part of the dress wasn’t entirely fabulous, the top of it, in all of its gold sequined glory was incredible.

I also thought that Claire Dane’s Armani Prive dress was beautiful, however it was quite safe.  It fit her perfectly and was all in all a great couture dress.

January Jones loves to get people talking about what she wears (or doesn’t wear).  Her blue Versace dress is no exception.  I didn’t hate it.  I loved the fact that she tried something different, and the color was amazing.  The little cones on the bodice were tacky, but she didn’t design the dress, so the criticizing for that should go to Donnatella.

And while it wasn’t my favorite, I do think that Tina Fey needs some recognition because she did look quite elegant in her Oscar de la Renta.

But other than those dresses I thought everything was pretty lackluster.  All Oscar de la Renta or Carolina Herrera, nothing fun, young, or interesting.  Take Lea Michele (whom I adore) for instance, she wore a dress made for someone twice her age.
