In honor of Rei Kawakobo/Commes des Garcons

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.

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.

2016 SAG Awards

Last night the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists honored the last year’s most outstanding performances in film and prime time television at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

Unlike the Academy Awards, the SAG Awards was an all-inclusive affair leaving no one out.

A bit of a quick history lesson, the SAG Awards was the first televised awards show to acknowledge the work of union members and the first to present awards to motion picture casts and television ensembles. And as one of the top industry honors presented to actors, only the SAG Awards are selected entirely by performers’ peers – with two nominating panels — one for television and one for film — each composed of 2,200 randomly selected union members from across the United States – in SAG-AFTRA. Hence there were no *cough*cough* (diversity issues).LOL.

 But before we get into all the highlights from last night’s festivities, here are some of the hottest looks from the red carpet.

Classic Redsanna-farris-naeem-khan-katie-lowes-tina-fey-prabal-gurung-melissa-rauch-romona-keveza-stephanie-drake

Ladies like Anna Faris in Naeem Khan, Tina Fey in Prabal Gurung, Melissa Rauch in Romona Keveza, Katie Lowes and Stephanie Drake brightened the evening with stunning shades of red. No blending in either with fabrication and cut-outs to up the wow factor on these gorgeous stunners.

Rich Plums

laverne-cox-prabal-gurung-kunal-nayyar-neha-kapur-joanne-froggart.png

Orange is the New Black‘s (Netflix) Laverne Cox served nothing but glamour in a Prabal Gurung cutout gown and the elegance of the rich wine tones were echoed by fellow ladies of the evening, Neha Kapur, wife of The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar; and Joanne Froggart.

Metallic Touches

Stunning gowns in every shade and fabric added much needed character to the typical LBDs and washes of white. Lady of the night Viola David wowed in Zac Posen, actress Tracey Lysette followed suit with a long-sleeved gown with a killer split. Also gracing the red carpet were sisters Kate and Rooney Mara, both in Valentino, Helen Mirren in Jenny Packham seen here with Michael Shannon, Sarah Silverman in a shimmering silver Vivienne Westwood fishtail gown and Carrie Brownstein of Transparent (Netflix) in Akris.

 

Pops of Magenta

diane-guerrero-sofia-vergara-vera-wang-joe-manganiello-emilia-clarke-dior-haute-couture

Added personality to the evening as seen on Diane Guerrero, Sofia Vergara in VeraWang with hubby Joe Manganiello, and Game of Thrones’ (HBO), Emilia Clark in Dior Haute Couture.

Marigold Abound

hannah-murray-lily-rabe-lela-rose-sola-bamis

Brought the sunshine and and early spring fever with amazing pieces like the Lela Rose gown worn by Lily Rabe. I could not keep my eyes of Hannah Murray and Sola Bamis either.

Shades of Blue

brie-larson-atelier-versace-gwendoline-christie-january-jones-molly-parker-paolo-sareno-maisie-williams-naomi-watts-burberry-sarah-hyland-j-mendel

From Brie Larson’s unique masterpiece from Atelier Versace, and Briane of Gwendoline Christie’s powder blue to Maisie Williams Cobalt gown, Naomi Watts’ Burberry lace sheet and Sarah Hyland’s J. Mendel piece I could not help but be spell bound by the many shades of blue – leaving me anything but.

Glitz and Embellishmentsalici-vikander-louis-vuitton-eva-longoria-julien-macdonald-hannah-bagshawe-eddie-redmayne-dior-homme-nicole-kidman-gucci-julianne-moore-givenchy-couture

And for what was lacking in some regard for those who unfortunately made some of the fashion blogosphere’s worst dressed lists – there were these pieces that left nothing lacking – well maybe- Nicole Kidman’s Gucci gown which left me a bit underwhelmed. However, Alicia Vikander looked amazing in her sequined Louis Vuitton, Eva Longoria left little to the imagination in Julien MacDonald, glowing mommy to be Hannah Bagshawe styled her growing bump flawlessly while joining hubby Eddie Redmayne in Dior Homme and Julianne Moore was regal in Givenchy Couture.

Touches of Pastel

sophia-mcshera-jon-hamm-soairse-ronan-michael-kors-christina-ricci-christopher-kane-priyanka-chopra-monique-lhuillier

Girly pastels in a simple, delicate cuts and fabrics were amazing, from Soairse Ronan’s Michael Kors sheath, seen alongside Jon Hamm, Christina Ricci’s Christopher Kane pleated lace and chiffon masterpiece to Sophia McShera’s simple caped gown. Priyanka Chopra normally does not disappoint however this gown did nothing to compliment her gorgeous complexion.

Mixing up the usual sea of colors and traditional reds and black were a few beauties in masterfully crafted ivory and white gowns. Take Amanda Peet in Narciso Rodriguez or Amy Landecker in SAFiYAA, seen here with Bradley Whitford, Laura Preporn in Carmen Marc Valcvo, alongside Dascha Polanco or Julianna Margiullies in Berardi – just stunning. I wish I knew the designer of Extra‘s Charissa Thompson’s gown because it.is. SPECTACULAR!

Kristen Wiig broke the mold of typical gowns by opting for an amazing Roland Mouret jumpsuit that left me speechless. Paired with the simple accessories and makeup, I was taken by the entire look. Rachel McAdams in black lace Elie Saab was everything, and Ellie Kemper in Peter Pilotto was truly refreshing.

Jewel Tones

Uzo Aduba dazzled in sequined emerald Zac Posen, while Kate Winslet in Giorgio Armani, Carol Burnett in Bob Mackie and Marisa Tomei in Zuhair Murad Couture were breath taking.

Golden Globes 2016

Award season is officially here!

Last night, marked the celebration of the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards. The award show held at the The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California was broadcast live and honored the best in film and American television for the year 2015. Hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais nominees and their guests were entertained by uncanny and witty – sometimes albeit crass humor by the entertainer as well as many of the presenters.

But before the nominees got to enjoy their evening of dining and hob-knobbing with their industry counterparts they took to the red carpet in their numbers and in awesome splendor. Here are some of my favorites of the evening.

America Ferrera and Eva Longoria started some hollywood buzz of their own – the ladies had a little fun with the media mixing up their names during their presenters’ speech:

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!
