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!
Looking outside my window, I see hip-high layers of snow slowly melting down & all I can think about it spring. I love dresses, light layers, & pops of color. While New York Fashion Week is currently underway, we can catch a glimpse of the best spring styles in the latest magazines hitting newsstands this month. In the mean time, for the res of us here in the Northeast, I’d like to jump on the spring bandwagon with the latest ads for Versace‘s Spring / Summer 2013 Collection. The sultry & sexy desert beach-themed ads features models Daria Werbowy & Joan Smalls, clutched by the arms of some very well-oiled scantily clad men. Of course, the lovely ladies are adorned with Versace’s metallic-heavy accessories with coin necklaces, studded bags, & knee-high gladiator sandals.
In the video below, we can get a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot, including quick shots of Donatella Versace at work. What are your favorite spring trends? Are you shopping the newest arrivals yet? Which are your favorite pieces from the brand?
Although the line isn’t available in H&M stores until November 17th, some of the major players in fashion like Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, & Selma Blair showed their support for bringing the Versace name to mainstream shoppers. Emma Roberts, Abbie Cornish, & Nicki Minaj played with separates, while Jennifer Hudson, Chloe Moretz, & Kaylee DeFer showed off their elegant & edgy frocks. Also, Uma Thurman sports an age-appropriate gown from the line with a contemporary touch in the blazer & strappy sandals.
Which of these looks would you wear? I’m loving Jessica Alba’s demure approach with the black opague tights & tied back bun. Also, I do love Chloe Moretz’s unexpected shoe choice with the yellow sheath dress. Check out more images & prices from the line here! Happy Styling!
