The Met Gala- Punk: From Chaos To Couture- Part Two
I've taken some time and gone through some more of the pictures of the annual fundraiser at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art. I also took some time to check out some of the best and worst dressed lists. I didn't agree with a lot of them, but I did manage to get through all of the pictures (and I'm sure that there are more out there) and I found many more that I liked and a few more that I didn't. Let's get started. This is Blake Lively in Gucci Première. LOVE LOVE LOVE the glamour of this gown. It also have a bit of a punk edge with the ruffles looking slightly shredded. It fits her beautifully!!!! The next one I loved is Uma Thurman in Zac Posen. Now, Uma can sometimes be a hit or miss on the red carpet, but I love her eccentric choices, The color is quite beautiful on her and the fit is just gorgeous and glamourous. Amazing gown, Zac!!!! I would have never thought that it would be so striking in green. I thought I had more pics of this gown, but this is the only one I was able to find. The next gown that I loved, which I mentioned in my last post is of Christina Ricci in Vivienne Westwood!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!! I managed to find more pics, so I have to show them off!!!! Another gown I loved is on fashion model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Gucci. This gown is totally a femme fatale look. Revealing, but not overly so, leaving a lot to the imagination. Very sultry and seductive. LOVE IT!!!!!! Here is another gown that I LOVED!!!!! It's Sarah Jessica Parker in a headpiece by Phillip Treacy and dress by Giles Deacon. Absolutely love the over the top-ness of this whole look!!! If you're gonna serve it up, girl SERVE IT UP!!!!! I love how she is always willing to go for it when it comes to fashion. This is the kind of fashion girl that I love!!! Amazing, simply amazing!!!!! Sarah has come a long way since "Square Pegs" and shows no signs of slowing down. Now, this look I'm all about because its one of my favorite male models wearing it. It's Tyson Beckford!!!! I have no idea who designed the jacket, but when I saw the picture, I melted!!! Not only because he's gorgeous, but because the jacket is gorgeous!!!! I love a man who will take a chance with fashion and serve it up with confidence. Another gown I loved a lot is Amanda Seyfried in vintage Givenchy. I love this gown because it's a bit of a departure for her. It's a little more edgier than her past gowns and it's still quite glamorous and she looks comfortable in it, which is a plus because if you don't look comfortable in what you're wearing, how can you rock it with confidence??? Love the drama of this gown as well. You go, girl!!!! Here is Beyonce in Givenchy. LOVE LOVE LOVE the glamour of this gown!!!! This is a gown to make an entrance with. Some didn't like it, but I loved it. Very glam and reminiscent of early Versace, which sold me in spades!!!!! Now, this is where things will get a little brutal, because these are the ones that I didn't like and I'll explain why. Let's start with Ivanka Trump in Juan Carlos Obando. Now, Ivanka is a beautiful woman, but this dress makes her look like a guttersnipe in a bad production of "My Fair Lady" or "The Pirate Queen". It looks like she slept in Central Park and woke up just in time to get to the gala. Ivanka, I have to say this: "You're Fired" for showing up looking like that!!! Another one I didn't like is Alicia Keys. I don't know who designed this dress, but I would never put these two fabrics together in the same piece, unless I was doing an edgy leather jacket. The top in leather, the skirt in sequins???? Really??? Both parts are fighting for attention and neither one got it. Alicia is a beautiful woman with curves, but this dress is horrible. I would cut it and use the leather as a top, with another skirt and use the sequined skirt with another top. Here is another that I wasn't a fan of. This is Sofia Coppola in Marc Jacobs. Sofia is a very talented and beautiful woman and I love that she is wearing Marc Jacobs, but I hated the fact that she didn't really make an effort for this. She showed up in her pajamas. This is like going to Walmart in your pajamas!!!! This is a trend that needs to stop NOW!!!!! I would have rather you not decide to go, if you're gonna show up in your pajamas. Why do people in their right mind would EVER hit the street in their pajamas????? Now, here are my honorable mentions. These are the ones that I really liked, but not as much as the ones I've featured. Nonetheless, they deserve to be showcased. Let's start with Coco Rocha in Emanuel Ungaro by Fausto Puglisi. I know this is a leopard (or cheetah) print dress and I know this is on the worst dressed lists, but I love the fun that's in this dress. I also love her attitude!!! She rocks it with confidence and that's what sells this look to me!!!! She is also one of my favorite models and her energy is just amazing!!! She is one of the eccentric girls that pulls me in every time!!! Another one I like a lot is Solange Knowles in Kenzo. While Beyonce is more glam, Solange is much more eccentric and edgy and both girls rock what they wear with confidence. Solange also owns this look and rocks it with confidence. Although I thought she would be more punk with her look, she does this really well. You go, girl!!!!! Rock out your natural!!!! Now, this is my girl Chanel Iman!!!! She is one of the hot girls of the moment!!! She never fails to impress me with her off work looks. This girl does know fashion and I love that she is quirky and eccentric. She always looks like she's having fun. I don't know who did her dress, but I love it!!!!! Last, but certainly not least is another one of my favorite model/musician, Karen Elson. She's another eccentric woman that gets my attention because her looks are so striking to me. She's married to Jack White of the White Stripes and she's a musician in her own right. Karen never fails to show her confidence and I love it!!! I don't know who did this dress, but I love it. I love anything she wears!!!! Well, these were my choices for the best, worst and honorable mentions. No matter what anyone says, rock your look with confidence. We may not all have to like it, but as long as YOU like it, that's all that matters!!!!! Stay fashionable and sexy!!!!
