Met Gala 2017..in review

Posted By: Terri

It’s Herrrre! The  annual Met Gala is in full swing tonight and if you’re looking for a little 411 on the event before we get down to the nitty gritty aka fashion here’s the brief bio……

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons

This year the exhibition is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts are Anna Wintour (the gatekeeper for the gala), Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams; the honorary chairwomen are Ms. Kawakubo and Caroline Kennedy, the former United States ambassador to Japan

Now that I’ve got you up to speed I KNOW you just want to know who wore what. Bearing in mind that I can’t feature everyone…here are a few of the stand outs and might I just say that once again Rihana has a “subtle way” of expressing herself. The girl is fearless.

Oscar Wrap

Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are  in the recovery phase of last night’s Oscar telecast. I firmly advocate the viewing of all things related to the Oscars and when it comes to the actual day of the show I’m pretty much in a “no fly zone”” to anything that would take my eye off the prize or in this case the fashion unless of course it’s an emergency of epic proportions. Yes…I AM ONE OF THOSE-I watch the pre show, the actual show and the post show -because just between us-the post show often allows attendees to change attire and you reallllly don’t want to miss a moment of fashion. I KNOW this may sound that I’m merely steps away from some sort of fashion detox aka 12 step program but rest assured I only do this once a year. PROMISE!

Bearing in mind that there was so much fashion I must say that this year …for me there were only a few that really left a major impression. Sooo lucky for you this will be “the short list” and if you want more you can find gowns galore from last nights Oscars all over the web.

First and foremost the hands down best dressed of the evening was Taraji P. Henson in Alberta Feretti. It was simple, elegant, figure flattering and in a word perfection. End of discussion

Second on my list was the wonderful Emma Stone. Beauuutiful beyond words in Givenchy Haute Couture. STUNNNING!

Third and this one surprised me until she was on stage because on the Red Carpet I couldn’t get the full effect was Brie Larson in Oscar De La Renta.

Also on the list was Viola Davis… Sleek, simple lines, well fitted and figure flattering. Loved it!

Finally… and this one pains me on so many level. The one look that I thought was overkill. It was just tooooo much. To much bling, to much fabric for the actresses small frame, the crown and the necklace all too much and too heavy. Janelle Monoe is a beautiful woman but the look was overkill. So sorry Janelle-you are lovely the dress didn’t bring out the best in you. I noticed the dress and not you. Not the way it should be. (at least for me). All images courtesy of Bazaar.com

Met Gala 2016 The Miss..(es)

Posted By: Terri
Madonna-There are no words....

Madonna-There are no words….

Soooo here we are post 2 covering last night’s Met Gala. Sad  to say these were my least favorite looks of the evening. In the case of Madonna-I think you can agree that there are no words needed when it comes to this look. Dearest Madge needs to embrace either a new stylist or a better optometrist. It’s a case of been there and done that ….for about the last 30 years-TIME FOR AN UPDATE! Also on the list and much to my dismay are Taylor Swift-I KNOW it’s really not like any of us to think she is anything less than flawless but the dark lips  and the harsh platinum shade of hair  would NOT be my first or even third choice for this beauty. Finally (and this pains me on so many levels) is our dearest Sarah Jessica Parker… Sarah- it’s the Met GALA…. with emphasis on GALA.

The Met Gala was held last night in New York City. In a word-it is the Oscars of Fashion and  everyone and I do mean everyone shows up ready to impress. As in all things to do with style there are hits and misses. Last night was no different when it comes to the Red Carpet. Here are a  few of my favorites from the evening and of course there will be  a post of the not so “spot on” because let’s face it the misses can be ohhh so entertaining.

The Oscar 2016 Red Carpet had all the usual suspects…Charlize, Cate, Lady Gaga,Heidi, and a number of new comers Alicia, Priyanka, Saoirse and Margot in Gucci, Marchesa, Armani, Vuitton, Calvin (Klein) and Zurhair Murad. Basically another night of glitz and glam or as I say and I quote: One of my favorite nights of the year because a girl can never have toooo much sparkle. oscars-saoirse-ronanoscars-priyanka-chopraoscars-heidi-klum88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivalsoscars-margot-robbie88th Annual Academy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 28 Feb 2016Charlize Theron
