As We Gear Up for the Toronto Film Festival…

Let’s have a look at some Venice Film Festival fashion!

I really had no other witty/fitting headline or intro sentence for this post *womp womp* (That’s how you know I’m rusty. Please bare with me, this is my first post in over a year!).

In all seriousness though, TIFF is right around the corner (t-2 days)! In preparation for the amazing red carpet looks we are going to see, here are some of my favourite looks from the 73rd Venice Film Festival, which wraps up this Friday.

The 2014 Met Gala: Gowns, Pants & Crop Tops, Oh My!

On Monday we saw yet another “fashion prom” come and go. Better known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala, or Met gala, the yearly event didn’t disappoint. As always, along with glamour and sophistication, weirdness and questionable choices followed. There were those that followed the theme and those that didn’t (such as gala rule-maker herself, Anna Wintour).

This year’s theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion. Seeing as Charles James was a mid-century designer of iconic ball gowns, you’d expect to see exactly that. There were some ball gowns, but being an unpredictable crowd, there were of course other looks that included pants, short dresses and crop tops.

Not being one to stick to the rules, I actually liked most of the looks that went against the theme. Ball gowns just aren’t my cup of tea, as pretty as they may be (did not mean for that to rhyme, but I’ll go with it). That being said, below are some of the looks seen at this year’s Met gala, in no particular order.

I’ll discuss my top picks in my next post, but in the meantime, who were your favourites? Let me know!

Style Icon: Miranda Kerr

Now, I know that everyone  is well aware of who Miranda Kerr is. If you don’t, you’ve possibly been living under a rock for the past ten or so years. I’ve always known about her, and always felt just “meh” about the supermodel. Yeah, she’s extremely blessed in the looks department and has been super successful, but my “girl crushes” or “fashion crushes” were always reserved for the likes of Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe and other fashionable Brits. I just have a thing for cool British folks. Don’t ask.

It’s been only recently that I’ve started to pay attention to Kerr’s style and fall in love with almost every outfit, whether glam or casual, that she has been photographed in. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel that her style has evolved a lot these past few years. She is definitely one of my top fashion crushes now. That being said, it’s time for another Style Icon moment; this time with the lovely and stylish Aussie…Miranda Kerr.
