On Second Thought...

Just feel like posting some more extravagant gowns...

Tabitha Simmons
The Brandolini Girls

Gio snapping a selfie...

Love this shot of Suki

This is the prettiest view of Anna Wintour's Daughter Bee

I wasn't crazy about Aerin Lauder's dress even though it did remind me of the Delft dishes in my Grandmother's china cabinet.
I do love this shot of her and her husband Eric entering the ball.

Another Oscar de la Renta beauty.
You can't see them but Sarah was wearing bright yellow silk pumps underneath which I loved and the flowers in the back of her hair!!!

Christy never ages!

Rosie looks really cool in this Balmain number.
I would have worn that to another type of party though.
Too rough for this frilly event.

OK, I'm done!

Met Gala Madness

It's been many months since I have had the time and felt like blogging...
So now I am back with a vengeance!
Most girls dream of a special night to wear a ball gown, have their hair done up just right and parade around on the red carpet in full regalia. 
Tonight was the night! 
The Met Gala in NYC inaugurated the newly renovated Costume Institute 
and honored legendary designer Charles James.
Here are some of my initial thoughts...

Suki Waterhouse in Burberry Prorsum
A beautiful confection!!!

Karolina Kurkova is magical in Marchesa!!!

Arizona Muse in Zac Posen 
Regal in Red

Kate Bosworth in Stella McCartney is like a scoop of sorbet.
Lots of great backs to admire...

Another gorgeous view from behind...
Rihanna in Stella as well.

Love a clean white gown...
especially Givenchy on a perfect body like Naomi!

And now for the 

All good here...

Love me some Kanye!
Kim - whatever....

Gorgeousness unite!!!
Jay Z and Beyonce in Givenchy Haute Couture

They are very pretty but Gisele's Balenciaga dress is a little predictable for me.

The NEW sexy couple!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two!
Spicoli and the bombshell in Dior.

Now some random stuff before the dissing begins:

So much fun from Prada
I always love fringe and feathers and movement.
Also this sexy Prada number on Nupita Nyong'o

Hailee Steinfeld perfectly age appropriate in Prabal Garung.

And here we go...

 Can you say, "Washed out?"

C'mon. this is a black tie event. Really?
So inappropriate!!!

The artist formerly know as Prince?
No, it's Janelle Monae

Yuck yuck yuck and what is that hair?


Kate, are you a wench?
Going to milk the cows?
Why would such a sexy, vavoom body choose this particular 
Dolce & Gabbana?
All wrong!

Why oh why would these petite girls choose these dresses?
They are swimming in these granny clothes.
Heavy heavy heavy!

Blech, vomit green jello and that bun is so dated.

Ugliest dress ever!

OK, goodnight.

Paris, tu me manque!

Under normal circumstances I would be in Paris working PFW this very moment. This is my favorite time of year to visit the magical city of lights and my favorite season to buy - Spring/Summer
I skipped my hop across the pond this year since so many of my new European vendors decided to show in New York a couple of weeks ago. 
Fabulous news,  RIGHT?
WRONG! Missing my city and the energy it holds as the fashion elite teeter along the cobbled streets on their Saint Laurent heels.

Here are some of my favorite Milan & Paris street style looks stolen from the pages of 
Style.com & Bazaar.com...

 French Vogue Editors in their uniform 
So easy and works every day here in Los Angeles

 The head honcho Emmanuelle Alt

 Camo, Gold and Black - Love that bag!

 My Muse Barbara Martello - Just wish I had some of that length in my legs!


 I'm going to wear my white jeans all winter long

 Perfect mix of boy meets girls - I love this outfit so much.
Gio can do no wrong in my book.

Great shot Of ADR by Tommy Ton
That dress and shoes are sick on her.

 This is going to be my, "I can't get dressed today look."

 Perfect Sheath Dress

Who cares if they might have put a little cash away in a secret bank account in Switzerland!
Dolce & Gabbana are masters at women's clothing.
These pieces are beyond cool. Look at that purse!


Garage attendant or fashion editor?
How cute are her cherry shoes with this comfy jumpsuit.
I would look horrible in this but its so great on Viviana.

My kind of dress - I NEED this now!

Vacation or Wedding?
Gorgeous in my book...

Leather & Lace done right

LOVE this bag but would never spend the coin on such a trendy piece.

What a fresh departure for Anna to not be wearing heels during fashion week.
Maybe she had a blister and needed to wear socks?
I am going to steal this look - girly dress + moto boots

Counting the days until I can step foot onto that French soil...

PS: If you happen to be in town please go see the Azzedine Alaia retrospective here:

I want a full report!
