Have We Met?

The Costume Institute Met Ball 2012. Theme this year?  Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.   I have looked through some of the photos on Style.com and usmgazine.  So far, so beautiful.

Camilla Belle In a beautiful Ralph Lauren, But my favorite aspect of the look?  The deep purple lip with the light, shimmery dress.  Lana Del Rey in Joseph Altuzarra.  I love the sheer black cape. So stunning.

My favorite hair inspiration and the newlywed, Carey Mulligan in Prada.  Karolina Kurkova in Rachel Zoe. Loving the matching turban! These dresses are some major displays of all that sparkles.

Hey Anja, could your Anthony Vaccarello gown show a little more hip? Mary-Kate’s The Row dress is very nun meets geisha in a very modern way.

Brights!!! The ever stylish Diane Kruger is not a disappointment in this feather adorned Prada.  And January Jones wears Versace well.


Mary Kate Olsen for Elle, July 2008

I’m not sure if she’s promoting anything or if she just felt like having herself a little photoshoot, but Mary Kate Olsen is featured in the latest edition of Elle Magazine.  The accessories are great, the Marc Jacobs sweatband from 80s hell is not.  Click to enlarge!

MET Costume Institute Gala: The Morning After

Last night in NYC, the Costume Institute hosted its annual gala (this year’s theme was superheroes).  I’m told it’s a pretty exclusive event, but how am I supposed to believe that when I see that they’re letting Hilary Duff in? Anyway, I’m not sure if this was the best year of the gala in terms of the fashion, but I did see a few outfits that I thought represented the theme in a stylish way.  Keep reading to see my favorites, and my concerns.

Mary Kate’s Fête Folly


Marc Jacobs, I blame you for this!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — thick velvet headbands are never a good look, even on a usually stylish girl like Mary Kate Olsen, seen here at the New Year’s in April: A Fool’s Fête event.  I’m so busy gawking at this accessory that I can’t even begin to comment on the oversized-to-the-max dress she’s wearing.  The word “Fool” in the party title was leading me to believe that maybe this was a costume party of some sort, but I checked out pictures of all the arriving guests and this was actually a pretty classy gathering!  Sorry Mary Kate, but that is one piece that needs to be left on the runway, or even better still, in Marc Jacob’s imagination.

Elizabeth and James F/W 2008

 I just can’t help it —  I love me some Olsen twins.  Their addictions to Starbucks and minimal attention to haircare do not phase me.  I even tolerated Mary Kate’s stint on Weeds, although the sight of her dry-humping Nancy’s son made me a little queasy.  A project of theirs that doesn’t make me sick at all is their line, Elizabeth and James, which recently revealed its Fall/Winter 2008 lookbook.  I really like what I see so far, especially the way they mix their structured garments with those that are softer and looser.  They also show a lot of tassel love, which actually turns out to look kind of awesome on one of the gray sweaters.  Be sure to check out the oversized vest, perfect for layering.  All in all, it’s very “MKA,” and I mean that in the best way possible.  Photos courtesy of FabSugar!
