S & B & well I guess Little J, continue showing off their high fashion know how by sitting ring side at the hottest couture shows in Paris. Les Gossip Girls and Jessica Alba touched down at the Chanel show yesterday, showing off very different, yet all very covetable, Chanel looks (obv).
Blake Lively continues her adorable French tour in a very bohemian Chanel resort dress. Isn't it fabulous? Don't you just want to wear that dress to your next Haute Couture fashion show? Or every day? And it's not too tight nor too short, it's just right! Has she finally found her inner Goldilocks?
On to Jess Alba, who also did her best to go have us all going "awwww" but didn't quite do it for me. The dress is great no question, but the choice of footwear is just not working for me. Clearly it's meant to contrast with the frock's peasant girl thing, but the peep toe weaved booties just make it look mismatched and weird. Am I wron?
Far from awwwww was apparent bad girl Leighton Meester. B was all sorts of rocker chic in some form of long sleeved black leather number which just has me thinking "ugh that looks hot" - no I don't mean sexy, I mean warm as in the fires of Mordor. Is it 100 degrees where you guys are? Because it's 100 degrees here and I just, blurgh can't even look at those long sleeves without feeling suffocated.
My vote is clearly with Blake Lively. I can't believe I'm saying this but she actually looks sweet and angelic!! What's going on with the world??
It's very tough to say who's doing their best "lady-who-lunches after taking in a couture fashion show" impression at the Dior F/W 2010 Couture show yesterday. Former Vogue cover girl Blake Lively, seated next to La Wintour herself, deviated from her usual va-va-voom bombshell look for something a little bit more ladylike. Though the hair still had that "I just banged Nate in the kitchen" Serena oomph.
Meanwhile, doting mom Jessica Alba went summer time sweet in an airy strapless floral. Sort of a modern Betty Draper no?
Forget the Oscars, Hollywood's truly most fashionable night is officially the Costume Institute Gala. I can only say Holy amazing red carpet Batman!!! I've never seen so many incredible dresses on so many insanely stylish women all in one place. Doesn't hurt that the inspiration was American style through the ages. I think all the ladies seemed to conquer it. Keep reading for some of my favorites. I don't think there's one that I can say did this year's MET Ball any wrong. It's unbelievable!
So apparently my announcement that the Tribeca Film Festival was without fashion was a bit premature. Last night's The Killer Inside Me premiere had me eating my words and saying apologies.
Dear Jessica Alba,
My apologies for ever doubting how positively stunning you are. See, all it took was long flowing locks (those are the most real looking extensions I ever did see), naturally glowing makeup and a beyond lovely Chloe hippie girl dress to make me a believer again. This is your best hair to date. You've peaked my interest yet again.
Now on to Kate Hudson. See my advice to Jess Alba and follow it. What's with the Mad Men hair? Too frumpy makeup and logoed poncho? Remember when you were lauded for your natural beauty and bohemian style. Let's try to get back to that shall we? Think Penny Lane...
Fantastic or dubious, either way after a week of blah fashions up and down the red carpet, we finally have something to work with.
Remember when Sundance was just this small little film festival in a small quaint little mountain town? It didn't attract a ton of attention and some pretty spectacular films came out of it. Well amazing movies are still screened at Sundance but the amount of attention has certainly changed (insert T-Mobile diner, MySpace cafe, Muscle Milk lounge, etc etc here) Though I've said it before and I'll say it again, my most favorite thing about Sundance is that at heart it's still an indie film festival. And the red carpets are treated as such. There are no slinky dresses or fancy updos here - the dress code is mostly jeans, snow boots and puffy jackets. You have to hand it to the starlet who can manage to look uber cool under many many layers...
And so have we. Last night's People's Choice Awards gave out honors for the public's favorite entertainers of the year. Meanwhile the ladies of Hollywood took the opportunity to start 2010 off in great style.
Ok, so maybe they're not ALL luncheons but we can all agree that they are all doing good and looking ladylike. This week saw a bevy of events, lunches and dinners geared towards raising awareness to the various causes close to our favorite starlets's hearts. Sure in New York this all came thanks to the UN Council bringing us the do gooders of the world to our fair city but the world of traffic that follows them.
Forget the Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmy's...the MET Costume Institute Gala is the place to be for the most fashionable red carpet looks.
Hosted by Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Justin Timberlake, this year's "Model as Muse" Gala has to be the most style filled event of the year.
From glam ball gowns to mini sequin dresses, to some serious disasters (we'll get to that next), the red carpet was a who's who of fashion and Hollywood.
Oh and did I mention models? Sure most fashion events bring out loads of the slender and tall fashionistas, but with the Model as Muse theme, it was like a model safari - even bringing out our early 90s favorites Cindy Crawford, Paulina Poriskova and Claudia Schiffer. It's like the George Michael Freedom video all over again.
So here go the best of the best...stay tuned for the Oh No moments, trust me there were quite a few...
