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.
…and I can’t wait!!! Yes, I was one of those people that texted everyone she knew and stalked Twitter for updates. How does this relate to fashion? Modern, royal, gorgeous, stylish woman gives birth to baby with an unlimited clothing budget = fashion news. Finally, someone’s gonna kick Suri out of the tabloids! If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, well, that was a very long nap you were taking.
As for the baby’s clothes, undoubtedly, its socks will cost what half of my closet is worth.
Don the dot trend seen at the Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney fall 2011 shows with this polka dot sweater from Forever 21 for just $22.80. Pair it with cognac leather shorts (as shown in the picture) and platform clogs, or ripped skinny jeans and colorful flats for a more casual look.
When the shows, appointments, reviews, and parties from fashion week have ended, one question occupying everyone’s minds is the big “So what?” What are the new top trends? For Spring 2011, we saw both new and continuing trends. Elle.com has broken it down for us.
Lanvin is the newest high-end fashion designer to partner with H&M. The Lanvin line will consist of menswear and womenswear, and will be unveiled on Nov. 20 in North America and on Nov. 23 everywhere else H&M is located.
This partnership will create a larger client base for Lanvin since their clothes will be sold at a much cheaper price in an everyday store. Lanvin is not the only designer in recent history to form a partnership with H&M in order to widen their client base; previous designers consist of Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney.
H&M will preview the new Lanvin line on November 1 on hm.com. Read the full article from The Huffington Post.
