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.

And just like that the first month of the year is already over! OMG can you even believe it? I’m still over here signing 2015 and it’s already been a MONTH! yeep!

So as we rolling into the shortest month of the year – rejoice, it’s a leap year guys – let’s take a look back at some of the crazy awesomeness that was January 2016.

Intstagram

I haven’t really been very active on here lately. But here’s a quick round up of some of the things I thought were worth sharing.

Bloglaviedesoleil

At the start of this year I promised to work on growing my blog. So in an effort to do so, I took the time to share more of the things I was truly passionate about by creating better content and even made time to celebrate a few milestones with you guys, including a an updated facade and all new features.15ca42cbd18011fc6a16c2b79f9e7f54.jpg

This month marked 1 year since I started blogging and to mark the occasion I created an extra special #FunFactFriday.

Also added to the line up were new features, #WorkItWednesday, Go.See.Do., and Ready.Set.Record.

Some of the Months top posts: A run down of some of the top shows this awards season, 42nd Annual People’s Choice Awards, 2016 Golden Globe Awards, 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Martin Luther King Jr. tribute.

These are just some of the exciting things coming with the new year. Stay posted for more exciting features and content.

Happenings Around Town

Winter Storm Jonas swept through New York City and shut things down last weekend and for some, this was the perfect excuse for a mini winter staycation. Most parks and streets became winter playgrounds for kids and adults alike.

Broadway Week is still underway this week with 2-for-1 tickets to some of Broadways biggest hits until February 5th, get your tickets, here.

Also worth the buzz is the return of the bi-annual New York City Restaurant Week which also still running until February 5th, so if you’ve wanted to do a fancy, romantic dinner now would be the chance to do it. Check out the full list, here.

TV

It has been a big year in television with attention focusing on On Demand services like Amazon Tv, Netflix and Hulu, whose Original pieces have dominated the ratings and awards alike. I think Cable companies should be getting worried – maybe even thinking about following in the footsteps of HBO, because the competition is real!

Also all new shows and seasons premiered over the winter break:

Zoe Ever After (Season 1- BET), Angel From Hell (Season 1), Lucifer (Season 1 – FX), Agent Carter (season 2 – ABC), Hit the Floor (Season 3 – VH1), Younger (Season 2 – TvLand), X-Files (Season 10), Shameless (Season 6)

and Mid-season returns of Code Black, Chicago Med, Fire & PD, Super Girl, Scorpion, Law & Order SVU, and Suits.

Music

New releases from Macklemore, Kanye West, Sia and Rihanna.

Also Lady Gaga confirms that her new album is in the works and should be released this year.

Festival Season is fast approaching and in anticipation the line-ups for Coachella and Governor’s Ball have already been released.

Media

  • In tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. Black Hollywood teamed up with civil rights groups to host a day of rememberance and celebration with performance pieces of some of the works of the greats.
  • In juxtaposition, the Oscar Nominations were announced and in another unsurprising turn there we no Black actors/actresses nominated, ironically Black films were nominated however it was their non-Black writers, producers. etc. who were the nominees, resulting in a call for boycotts by several Black Hollywood names including this year’s honoree, director Spike Lee.
  • In contrast Black Films had a major field day at the Sundance Film festival. Nate Parker in particular won big for his project, with sale of “Birth of A Nation” to Fox Searchlight for $17.5 million.

Fashion

  • Grace Coddington will step into a new role at American Vogue which allow the fashion maven more freedom.
  • America Apparel is finally moving forward after wrapping up their court case with their former CEO last week.
  • Maureen Chiquet, one of the very few female CEOs of a fashion house has left Chanel;
  • Barbie gets a makeover that has been long over due. Young girls can now have the Barbie of their choice that looks like them in every way they choose! Great job Mattel!
  • Better get to saving those loose pennies because Birkins and other luxury leather bags are now worth more than their weight in gold. Literally.

News

  • There seems to be a major crisis in some of the country’s states. In a 1st world country, there are citizens who have become sick from the water coming from their taps and while many know of the Flint, Michigan, situation it is also being reported that the same issue is being faced by citizens in St. Joseph, Louisiana! This really makes you wonder what’s really going on in these states. Hmmm?? *serious side eye.*
  • Germany’s Angela Merkel has mad it clear, Syrian refugees are to return home once the war is over.BITACORA-ZIKA-2

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:
