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!
Every fashion week season, I’m always super excited about what Marchesa is showing. During New York Fashion Week, designers Georgina Chapman & Keren Craig nailed their collection, which featured the elegances of the 1920s & Gatsby deco details, as well as romantic embellishments sure to wow on the red carpet on our favorite A-listers. Celebrity fans of Marchesa include Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Eva Longoria, Kate Beckinsale, & Olivia Munn, among many fabulous others. The line showcases everything gorgeous from lace to feathers to beadwork to florals, which is always reinvented & comes to life on Marchesa’s runway.
In the past, I’ve always celebrated the designs of Marchesa, & this season’s latest from the brand’s Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collection during New York Fashion Week is no exception! Not that I’m looking to ignore today’s holiday on the calendar, but I wanted to show one of my true loves in fashion! Co-founding & design duo Georgina Chapman & Keren Craig feature a luxe, vintage feel on the runway with plenty of embroidery to go around. The combination of red & gold, black & gold, black & silver call to mind inspiration from past season collections including Alexander McQueen or Carolina Herrera. Marchesa’s designs are nothing short of breath-taking- sure to attract celebrities like Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, & Naomi Watts to don the ornate gowns as this year’s awards season is about to come to a close at the end of February.
It’s been almost a week since the season finale of Project Runway All Stars, where Season 9 designer & fan favorite, Anthony Ryan Auld, was crowned the winner, ahead of Uli Herzner& Emilio Sosa. Even though Uli was my personal favorite, I was very happy to see Anthony Ryan receive the accolade that he deserves. Courtesy of My Lifetime, I’m sharing a gallery of the final runway, featuring Anthony Ryan’s “Fine Line” looks first, followed by Emilio’s “Urban Plantation,” & lastly with Uli’s “Winter Wonderland.” This was one of the most exciting episodes of the season & I loved watching judges model Carolyn Murphy, Marchesa co-founder & designer Georgina Chapman, & American icon Isaac Mizrahi, sit with guest judges actress Liv Tyler & Missoni heir, Margherita Missoni.
