Met Gala 2015: Red Carpet Photos

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala, also known as the “Oscars of the fashion world” has come and gone once again. This year’s theme was “China: Through the Looking Glass” – the exhibition of the same name (curated and organized by longtime MET curator Andrew Bolton) looks at China’s influence on western fashion and opens this month.

There was glamour, there was edginess, and there was (of course) ridiculousness on the red carpet. All courtesy of celebrities, models, designers and anyone else who was either a guest or paid the hefty sum of $25,000 for a ticket!

PS. Shoutout to the fabulous Chiara Ferragni, who was a guest of Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, for making fashion history by being the first blogger ever to attend the MET gala!

Summer Fashion Roundup

Well, now that this summer has flown by and I have decided to stop being m.i.a, it’s time to see what has been happening in the world of fashion (and celebrity) these last few months. 

My last post was in May, a little after the MET Gala occurred. Let’s see…since then the CFDA fashion Awards have taken place, along with the Cannes Film Festival, then came a bunch of movie premieres and some not-so-exciting awards shows such as the Teen Choice and MTV VMA’s, Comic Con also took place back in July (where we sometimes see a few fashion hits), as did Paris Couture Week (yay) and more recently, the Emmys. 

See below for some of my favourite looks from the aforementioned events:

 

August: Emmy Awards 

 

May, June, July & August: Movie Premieres, Awards, etc, etc. (I guess this could be categorized as miscellaneous!) 

 

July: Comic Con

 

July: Paris Couture Week

 

June: CFDA Fashion Awards

 

May: Cannes Film Festival

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!
