Belles of the Ball

May 7, 2014

The annual Met Ball, feting the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute is the fashion equivalent of the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards all rolled into one. This year was no exception, as the rich, famous and simply fabulous walked the red carpet to celebrate the opening of the exhibition entitled “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” in the newly christened Anna Wintour Costume Center. The dress code included white tie and tails for the gentlemen, and grand gowns for the ladies.
While the new designers generally set the tone for the future of fashion, tonight it was the old guard that ruled the red carpet.

Oscar de la Renta dressed some of the evening’s standouts, including this spectacular look on Sarah Jessica Parker:


Allison Williams was also elegant in a red Oscar de la Renta gown:


Taylor Swift glowed in her de la Renta dress:



Anna Wintour’s daughter, Bee Shaffer wore a stunning baby blue Alexander McQueen gown:


Idina Menzel ruled in a frothy Donna Karen Atelier gown:
Blake Lively glowed in gold Gucci with the ultimate accessory: husband Ryan Reynolds!


Others didn’t fare as well, as many of the younger stars took fashion risks and failed.

The very sexy Kate Upton donned something from a bad western movie. Just…no:

Chloe Grace Moretz also missed the mark in Chanel:

Sarah Paulson was a hot mess in Prada:

Diana Agron looked matronly in Mui Mui:

Katie Holmes channeled a Disney princess, and failed:

Speaking of Disney, it appears that Sandra Lee’s gown was semi-homemade and came off as more wicked step mother than princess:

Check back later this week to see the starlets that took risks and ruled!

Nobody’s Perfect

July 8, 2012

This is either really nasty, or a public service announcement:
Blake Lively, an actress and the face of many high end brands wore a bikini this weekend, and it didn’t look so great.

Sorry, but I went there…

Here is a young woman who seemingly has it all: she’s gorgeous, has loads of money, many acting jobs, high profile fashion and beauty endorsement deals, and of course, Ryan Reynolds. ¬†What she doesn’t have, is a perfect beach body.

Guess what? Neither do most of us. Blake is out there strutting her stuff in front of her hot actor boyfriend and her family, all the while getting it recorded for posterity by the paparazzi.

It’s nearly 100 degrees or more in most cities in the United States this weekend. Go ahead, put on your bathing suit and head to the beach and have a great time, no matter what your body looks like. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
