One of the few celebrity events I still anticipate and excitedly wait for pictures is the annual Met Gala in all it’s themed glory. This year there was a punk theme which I was not really looking forward to, not many evening gowns have safety pins and holes, but I was pleasantly surprised. A few of my favorites:
Rose Huntington-Whiteley – Gucci
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt (most adorable couple) – Carolina Herrera
Dakota Fanning – Rodarte
Emma Roberts – Diane Von Furstenberg
Sarah Jessica Parker – Giles Deacon (Philip Treacy hat)
Renee Zellweger – Prada
Cameron Diaz – Stella McCartney

I feel similarly about this Silence & Noise dress as I do monokinis. I love it and I think the cut outs are sexy and chic but there are very few people in this world that feel comfortable not only showing off but flaunting their love handle area, and I certainly not one of them. That doesn’t however mean I don’t really love this dress and think it might still be worth a try!

I have a pair of black leather shorts that I love but I am always a little unsure about wearing in the summer. But now thanks to these lovely ladies, and their simple ensembles, I think I can pull it off! The trick seems to be to stick with a simple white top and classic bright shoes to offset the rock and roll shorts. Black and white and chic all over!
I am once again professing my love for the Olsen twins and this time I am giving Mary-Kate serious props for turing it out at the Met Gala. Wearing a gown for her own line, The Row, Mary-Kate looks amazing. I know the twins get slack for wearing ill fitting clothes and looking homeless but I think this look, while messy and minimalist is far from boring and damn near perfect! Love!
It’s too warm for a beanie and too cold for a panama hat…what’s the perfect late winter/early spring hat? I’m really liking this Madewell fedora because it’s not the typical straw hat but it still works with the season. I’m going to keep my eyes open but this is a serious contender. I’m guessing by the time I finally decide what hat I want it will be consistently warm enough for my awesome summer hats…but that’s life!

Why is it that my comfy cozy look, which I always envision in my head looking like this, leaves me looking either more dumpy or way too over done? I absolutely love the effortless yet still put together feel of this look. The real kicker here; not even beanie and a scarf takes away from how chic she looks. Call me crazy, it may just be jeans and a blazer but I am totally craving this look!
Um, yes please! I think this Elizabeth and James dress is amazing. While I have really broad shoulders, thanks to my Grandmother, I still love the way backless dresses look, even if they’re not perfect on me. Paired with a messy side bun, one of the few hair styles I can actually create with little effort, and this is chic to perfection!
Even if the trend is already on it’s way out, brightly colored jeans are always fine by me (I basically live in my Zara red jeans). And if red isn’t tickling my fancy in the morning these highlighter orange Joe’s Jeans certainly will! They’re high waters which is another favorite “trend” I’m killing right now!
My usual NYFW envy was out of control this season, like every other, and only made worse by my fashion crush and dreamboat, Marc Jacobs. Amazing shoes, great bags, over the top hats with braided buns and a runway out of a story book — amazing!
My absolute best dressed of the Grammy’s. I never thought I would be praising Paris Hilton, but you go girl!
