The Met Gala: What were they thinking?

May 5, 2015

We promised to cover the Met Gala red carpet, to see who slayed it and who missed the mark. Silly us, worried about cultural missteps. We should have been concerned with fashion faux pas. Tassels and headresses and glitz, oh my!
How do you say ” Oy vey” in Mandarin?

Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out in a fringed headress from milliner Phillip Treacy and a custom H&M gown which she collaborated on. Speechless.

They don’t call it the “Vogue Prom” for nothing. Anna Wintour, whose name is now on the door of the Costume Institute, greets her disciples in Chanel. As they remind us often in fitness classes; take your shoulders out of your ears and relax, Anna!

Her daugher, Bee Shaffer, fared much better in a dramatic Alexander McQueen gown:

Tabitha Simmons donned a headress too, by Dolce and Gabbana. The Folies Bergere wants it back in the morning.

Is that JLaw, or JLo? Not flatterning, whoever you are! ( I know others strongly disagree!) in Dior.

What’s with the head coverings? Anne Hathaway lost her way in this number, by the big bad wolf by Ralph Lauren.

What’s on your head Selena Gomez? I know it’s Vera Wang, but was the bridal headpiece really necessary?

Fashion Statements

February 23, 2015

Political statements on tee shirts are not new. People often take to tees to show their support for various causes. This season, designers are using the runway to get the message across with oversized graphic treatments expressing thier points of view.

It started with Alexander McQueen’s menswear collection, when he showed pinstriped suits and chunky sweaters emblazoned with virtuous words, such as honour, and valour.

Just a few days later, Acne Studios made their statement on long fringed scarves bearing the slogans ” radical feminist” and “gender equality.”

Marc Jacobs continued the trend, featuring the words, “choice” and “solidarity” in his Marc by Marc Jacob women’s collection, shown in New York this week.

This kind of gives a whole new meaning to the term fashion statement, doesn’t it?

The Pope Wore Prada

March 14, 2013

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires has been named the 226th Pope of the Catholic Church, taking the name Pope Frances.

As his predecessor, Pope Benedict turns in his red Prada slip-ons and shuts down his Twitter account, “@Pontifex” in preparation for his departure, Cardinal Bergoglio will be finding his way around his new town, and thinking about how to make his mark as the new Pontiff.  Once the smoke clears (pun intended) he will need to make some stylistic choices to get this Popedom started.

In honor of the momentous occasion, we have gathered some of the season’s fiercest red shoes for his perusal.

These skull embossed patent leather Alexander McQueen slippers would lend an edgy vibe to the traditional Cossack look.

Nothing screams Italian like a horse bit loafer, and these Gucci patent ones will have him blending in with the locals in no time.

Fashion duo Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2, have created a classic wingtip in rich red. A manly choice.

Perhaps he will choose the iconic Tod’s driving moc, which is perfect for cruising around town in the Popemobile.

For the modern Pope on the go, these DC skateboard shoes are just the thing, offering both comfort and a sense of urban cool.

We’re sure whatever he chooses will be historic. Best of Luck Francis! Glad we could help.

Code Red (Carpet)

January 15, 2013

It’s awards season, and for me, the best part of the show is watching the actresses walk the red carpet. While each year brings out the good, the bad and the ugly, this year tended towards the latter.

These are generally beautiful women, with great figures with highly paid stylists to help them select the perfect look, which are often loaned to them by the designer. So, with the entire fashion world at their feet, why so many missteps?

It seemed to me that the stylist of choice last night was Randy Fenoli, the fashion director at Kleinfeld’s and a star of the TLC reality show, “Say Yes to the Dress.” While a few looked like brides, many looked like bridesmaids. I had no idea taffeta was a trendy fabric!

One of my favorite scenes in “The Sound of Music” was the one in which the nanny makes outfits for the entire Von Trapp family out of the curtains in her bedroom.

Apparently, Lucy Liu shares my sentiments. A beautiful woman, wearing a dress made out of draperies, completed her look with a Heidi-esque side braid.

Lena Dunham did have her former baby sitter make her dress, albeit not from upholstery of any kind. Designer Zac Posen whipped up a gown for his grown up charge, who won awards for her hit show “Girls.”

The Angelina leg was such a hit last year that lots of actresses tried to top it. It looked contrived when she did it. It looked pathetic when they emulated it.
