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 2016 VMAs: The Recap


I suffered through the VMAs so you don’t have to. Unless you’ve already watch them, then sorry! It was basically the Kanye – Beyonce – Rihanna show with some random stuff in between. Let’s dig in! (Per usual, just my stream of consciousness while I watch the show.) (more…)

The 2016 VMAs: The Fashion

final five

Hi y’all!!! Sorry I’ve been away for so long. I basically played it like a European and took August off. But I’m back just in time to discuss the VMAs! First up: the fashion. I started to peruse the pictures and there’s no way I can do a best/worst/meh post. Maybe a worst/WTF? But then I realized I didn’t recognize 90% of the people who attended. What’s a blogger to do? Only cover the people she knows and throw them into one post, obviously. Please note that a lot of these photos didn’t come with designer credits, which makes me think the designers didn’t want to take credit for their own designs… you’ll see why after the jump. (more…)

The Worst Dressed at the Met Gala


Now time for my favorite afternoon chat –  poorly dressed celebs. That is not a smart thing to say because Mercury is in Retrograde and I need all the good karma I can get. Just a reminder – be careful of the way you communicate during retrograde and do not enter any contracts. Just be chill until May 22nd.  (more…)
