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.


Style Options: Winter Gloves

I’m going to North Carolina this weekend and I’m trying to figure out what my best options are for keeping warm.  When I saw Burberry Prorsum’s Fall/Winter 2008 RTW line, my question was answered: gloves!  Pictured on the far left, Christopher Bailey has come out with fingerless gloves that come in the perfect winter colors.  I also think that the length of the gloves adds visual interest.  One part of me thinks that maybe fingerless gloves are silly, though–after all, what’s the point of wearing gloves if they’re not going to cover your whole hand?  Another part of me, however, is too consumed with how great these gloves would look with a 3/4 sleeve winter coat.  Besides, I can always bring an emergency pair of mittens. I invite you to join me as I highlight my top alternatives to Burberry’s olive fingerless gloves.
