Un Regard en Arrière – Cannes 2016

For the next few days the world turns it’s attention to Cannes, the resort town on the French Riviera as the International Film Festival gets underway. And all the reviews of this year’s gorgeous re carpet looks made me just a wee bit nostalgic about some of my favorite looks from last May.

So take a look back with me, if you will.

Monday night’s annual celebration of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s Met Gala 2017 marked one of the highlights of New York City’s spring time festivities.

Often marked by some of the most daring and albeit stunning gowns and silhouettes; everyone remembers Rihanna at the 2015 Gala, Beyonce’s latex gown at last year’s red carpet and who could forget Kim K at 2013’s event; the annual Gala serves as one of the museum’s biggest fundraising events and is typically the grand opening of the annual design exhibit.

People’s Choice Awards 2017

After award season 2017 officially kicked off with the Golden Globe Awards, the awesomeness continued with the People’s Choice Awards which took place last night in L.A. at the Microsoft Theater.

PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS

 

Hosted by comedian Joel McHale (Comedy Central) who was accompanied by his wife Sarah Williams, the evening featured a bevy of celebrity presenters and performances.

As always celebrities were out in some of the most amazing fashion, but there’s no need to take my word for it. Check out the looks below.

Golden Globes 2017

Last night one of the biggest nights in Hollywood kicked off this year’s award season in grand style. The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions, honored some of the best film, music and American Television.

Manus x Machina

All the interweb is abuzz with the talk of the 2016 Met Ball, and like everyone else I was all too excited to see the red carpet looks. Manus x Machina is an interesting theme given the growing influence of technology on how most of the world’s fashions are created – with the dawn of 3-D printing, and print productions. etc.

Through The Looking Glass

     Last night celebrities and donors alike flocked to the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 charity Met Gala, one of the most epic nights in fashion.

     The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, which sets the tone for the formal dress guest are expected to choose for the evening as their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Following the event, the exhibition runs for several months. Attended by personalities from the arts, fashion, high-society, film and music, the Gala is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the biggest fundraising nights in the city. The affair has been held at the Met since 1946 and is considered to be the fashion industry’s premier annual red carpet event. 

     Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and chair of the event since 1995, oversees both the benefit committee and the guest list.

     This year’s theme, “China: Through the Looking Glass” is dedicated to Chinese fashion. The inspiration for this year’s theme was drawn from the spring 2015 Costume Institute of the same name. It showcases Chinese art and rare artifacts as well as garments (dresses interpreting Chinese designs) from Western designers like John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Laurence Xu, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Tom Ford. The exhibit which incorporates paintings, decorative arts, and filmic representations of China is quite possibly the biggest the museum has ever put together!
