The annual Met Gala, which occurred Monday night at Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City. Every year there is a theme if you can remember last year’s punk dress code. Since the gala was honoring American couturier Charles James, an English-born American designer known for his structured wiring and lavishly heavy gowns, guests were asked to channel James’ formal aesthetic of gowns for ladies and white tie (with decorations) for men.
Above all I think my favorite of the night was Rihanna. The gal can seriously do no wrong. She stunned in a Stella McCartney number that included a cropped top with a stunning open back and a floor-length skirt with a full train and draping along the back.
Naturally Beyonce, and her hubby Jayz killed it as well–he actually proposed to her again when one of the many jewels from her Givenchy wrap dress fell off. So yeah, my jealousy continues. Leah Michele in Joseph Altuzarra and the Beckhams in Ralph Lauren and Victoria Beckam’s own design, all dazzled on the red carpet. All white ensembles proved to be a BIG trend on the red carpet.
Karl Lagerfeld didn’t fail to amaze us with Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2014 show at Paris Fashion Week. He transformed the Grand Palais into “Chanel Shopping Center”, an extraordinary supermarket with aisles of Chanel branded products (including real groceries that guests took home after the show). The aisles of the supermarket became the runway and the models didn’t just walk, they shopped around with carts as if they were grocery shopping on a normal day. Notable models included Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner and Rihanna. The Chanel collection featured normal, every day looks including sporty pieces with added uber chic accessories. The innovative fashion show turned errand run instantly became an Instagram frenzy, and ended with an overhead announcement ” Thank you valued Chanel customers, the show has now ended”.
Rihanna is joining the Style Network to work on a new reality series called “Styled to Rock”. This show will have twelve designers and their mentors who style A-list celebrities every week and one by one they will get kicked off based on their performance. “I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work” said Rihanna. And we definitely will look forward to watching it!
