Last night’s #MetGala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art honored Asian-inspired fashion with Anna Wintour‘s latest exhibition, China: Through the Looking Glass. In attendance were top A-listers from the realms of fashion, music, Hollywood, & more, wowing on the red carpet & showing support for the art of fashion. Some of the greatest risk takers of the night included Rihanna in a stunning over-the-top gold design by Guo Pei, Beyoncé‘s barely there shimmering gown by Givenchy, Jennifer Lopezwho showed off her best assets in a Versace design,Sarah Jessica Parker‘s collaboration with H&M & a masterfully crafted Philip Treacy headpiece, the always elegant Kerry Washingtonin a pink Prada confection, & Anne Hathaway‘s futuristic & sleek hooded gold gown by Ralph Lauren.
Of course, there are plenty of glamour & daring fashion feats in the slideshow below to feed your celebrity red carpet style obsession. Who wore your favorite look? Will you be headed to NYC to check out the exhibit? Who missed the mark on the red carpet? Happy Styling!
There’s no doubt that last night’s Grammyswere all about powerhouse performances, & Justin Timberlake was one of the most buzzed-about acts, especially since his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, is hitting shelves next month. The Tom Ford-clad talent hit the stage with Jay-Z for “Suit & Tie,” while both wives (Jessica Bielin Oscar de la Renta & Beyoncé Knowles in Osman, respectively) watched & smiled. If you missed Justin’s retro-style performance, or loved it & wanted to watch it again, check out the video below & share it with you friends!
Tomorrow is the big day for Beyoncé & that could only mean that after her rumored lip synching faux pas during the 2013 Presidential Inauguration, she’s going to kill it at the Super Bowl. She’s already been making appearance to promote the performance & I’ve featured her sexy leather mini dress look with Jimmy Choo pumps, as well as her orange sheath dress by Antonio Berardo.
One of the exciting stories from the headlines this week is that 2000’s R&B group, Destiny’s Child, is reuniting for a new single & greatest hits compilation. Even when reading the details behind the long-awaited return of the soulful trio, “Say My Name” started looping in my head. The group had so many great songs & hits, but it was always their coordinated chic on-stage & red carpet looks that made me wanna watch their every move. Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, & Michelle Williams were a force to be reckoned with, thanks to their stylist, Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles.
