The 2018 Met Gala: The Best

I give props to those who brought their “A” game to this event. This was NOT an easy theme to style and the risk was high. This is probably the shortest list of the group because the expectations are high – this is the fashion Super Bowl. Screw the Oscars, that’s child play. Shockingly, only ONE of the evening’s co-chairs made the list. (Co-chairs were Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace, Amal Clooney and Rihanna) I wonder what being a co-chair entails. Lots of daytime meetings that start with iced tea and end with Sauvignon Blanc? Rihanna sending passive aggressive emails asking Amal why she hasn’t submitted her pick for center pieces? Maybe we’ll never know… (more…)


The Met Gala 2017: The Mehs

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 01:  Anna Wintour attends the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1, 2017 in New York City.  (Photo by Neilson Barnard/Getty Images)

So last night was Anna Wintour’s prom. The First Monday in May belongs to Vogue and whoever they deem relevant enough to join them. Every year they have celebrity co-hosts. This year they were Katy Perry (eye roll) and Gisele and Tom Brady (ugh seriously) and the theme was something something Comme des Garçons. I won’t get into the details but know that the brand is of Japanese origins and you can see the influence in a lot of Rei Kawakubo (the founder)’s looks. Think high drama and structure. The goal on Met night is to represent the theme in one’s own creative way. My issue with the Met Gala is two-fold: 1) Some celebs say “screw the theme” and just wear the prettiest dress they can find which is sooo boring and 2) Anna Wintour’s thoughts on who is relevant do not match mine. For instance, Coco Rochas, one of the most prolific models of the last two decades and a staple at the Met Gala was not invited this year. But Kylie Jenner was. Anna has sold her soul to the Instagram star. Be careful Anna, it didn’t work out for the Fyre Festival…  (more…)


The Oscar After Parties: The Best

I’m SALIVATING over some of these gowns. They are VERY cool. I do not understand how someone hits the Oscars red carpet in something horrible and then knocks it out of the park at the Vanity Fair party. Mind blowing truly… (more…)


The Best Dressed at the Met Gala

What I love about the Met Gala is that people up their fashion game. It doesn’t always work out in the end, but at least people are taking risks! The Oscars have become a snooze. Even the Grammy’s don’t pack the same punch. It’s like they’re all scared of being called out by Giuliana Rancic, which PLEASE, who cares what she thinks. Let’s check in with those who got it right on fashion’s biggest night! (more…)


The Mehs of the Oscar After-Parties

Is it After Parties? Or After Parties or Afterparties? Someone call R. Kelly and find out. Seriously, everyone showed up at either Elton John’s Annual Oscars Viewing Party or the must posher Vanity Fair party. This included everyone who attended the awards. And they all changed! Not necessarily for the better. I didn’t cover everyone because I don’t have time to give you a fashion run-down on Mena Suvari and her like. (more…)
