Eco-Couture

May 7, 2015

Although lots of celebrities and fashionistas created a stir with their over the top or barely there gowns at the Met Gala this week, Livia Firth stood out for a completley different reason.

Ms.Firth (wife of actor Colin Firth,) walked the red carpet in a gown made completely of recycled plastic bottles.

Her long red gown, accessorized with a fringed shawl, was designed by Antonio Berardi, who accepted the challenge to create an eco friendly gown. The dress was made of a fabric called “Newlife,” which is woven from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

Firth is known for her eco friendly approach to fashion, having launched  the “Green Carpet Challenge,” in 2012, which inspired designers to create ecologically friendly fashions.

We think she looked gorgeous, and applaud her for being a role model for sustainablitly in fashion.

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.

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?
