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:

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

Think Pink

December 19, 2012

Pink was the surprise color of the season, with hues ranging from strong and vibrant, to soft and pastel ruling the runways.

Even the softest of shades had a strength to them. This is not your average girlie pink!

Costume National used  hot pink for modern clothes with a sexy vibe:

Burberry mixed their rich pink with red, for a new silhouette with exaggerated round shoulders and a nipped waist:
