The Met Gala 2014

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.

One on One- Member of the Meeting with Ali Firich

This year, FMDS has begun highlighting a “Member of the Meeting” at each meeting we hold.  The Member of the Meeting is granted to an FMDS member who has done something noteworthy, from going above and beyond in getting involved in FMDS to getting a good grade on a test or project.  Our first Member of the Meeting, Ali Firich, received a 100% on her most recent Apparel Quality Evaluation exam!  Learn more about Ali below:

You went to Fashion’s Night Out with some of our other members- How was that? Who did you meet? What was your favorite part?

FNO was an amazing experience! I enjoyed interning at Kirna Zabête for the day and got the chance to meet a few designers including Lizzie Fortunato, Thakoon, and Prabal Gurung.  I also had a celebrity sighting of Nicky Hilton who was shopping at Kirna Zabête while we were at the store!  My favorite part of the trip was walking around the city on FNO.

What is your favorite part of FMDS?

My favorite part of FMDS is the Spring Fashion show! I had such a fun time modeling in the show last year and I hope to model again this year.

Who is your favorite designer?

My favorite designer is Victoria Beckham.

If you could have one piece of designer clothing in your closet, what would it be, who would be the designer, and why?

It would be a sequin dress, top, or jacket (basically anything sequin!) by Rachel Zoe.  I just love sequins because it’s fun and it can spice up any outfit for going out!

What are your career aspirations?

I hope to get a job as a buyer in New York, D.C., or any other city on the east coast!

Thanks Ali!

Weekly Obsession – May 2

Chapeau Claudette

Teeming with excitement from the Royal Wedding, London popularized a new accessory trend – the mini hat. The always fabulous Victoria Beckham toted a similar mini to the event. Although these hats are rather difficult to find in the states, they are available online. The London based Chapeau Claudette sells the small gems for £30 which is about 45 USD.
