Whatever tickles your fancy
I am going to use this to continue my undying love and appreciation for the MET Costume Institute Gala last night.
Some happy surprises:
- Bee Shaffer, Anna Wintour’s daughter, in Balenciaga.
Bee always has the ability to look perfectly elegant, and when I saw that she was wearing Balenciaga I thought it would be from the recent F/W 2010 line, but thankfully (I was not a fan of the entire collection) it was this incredibly embroidered piece.
- Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
I thought JLo’s dress was one of the most gorgeous of the night, I was so surprised that a. she didn’t pick a big name designer and b. she didn’t show off her, assets. I think this is quite possibly the most beautiful she has ever looked and I am very proud of her.
Nightmare on Central Park West:
I would hate to be the publicists and/or stylists for Jones and Bigelow right now. Their dresses are too similar, it’s that simple. They are both short YSL dresses in the same shade of fuschia with a black design on top and a skinny black belt at the waist with black heels. I really want to know how this happened and why YSL didn’t inform the women that they basically had the same dress.
- January Jones in YSL.
- Kathryn Bigelow in YSL.
- Liv Tyler, Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson all in Stella McCartney
The happy family. I love how they always show up together, I wish Stella wanted to dress me for the event. I love all of the dresses, they all look amazing.
I have never seen so many pants/jumpsuits on a red carpet before, but each of these women were able to make them look oh so feminine.
- Alexa Chung in Phillip Lim.
Alexa looks her perfectly preppy self in this adorable Phillip Lim suit with bow tie and cropped pants. The lipstick gives it just enough girliness without being too tacky.
- Tina Fey in YSL.
I am so so glad Tina Fey wore this instead of having a gown disaster, this fits her personality much better.
Ralph and Ricky Lauren in Ralph Lauren.
A surprising pant ensemble by Ralph Lauren is worn on his wife, Ricky. I like this female version of the tux, and it fits her life a Ralph Lauren leather glove.
Chanel Iman in Michael Kors.
This Michael Kors onesie is to die for, cute but still elegant yet sexy enough for the MET.
