My winner for the most punk goes to Christina Ricci. Why, you may ask? Because she is wearing Vivienne Westwood and VW is the epitome of punk. She helped define this era of fashion and it is only fitting to pay tribute to that contribution.
Though not necessarily punk, Anne Hathaway has a new look, and it and of itself is punk. She is rebelling from the princess she was and embracing her sasha fierce.
Miley’s new do has changed her whole persona. If you look at her and still think Disney you must be high in the Mile High. But really. This was the perfect event for her and I’m shocked she even wore a slip under that dress.
Not only do these ladies represent my girl crushes, but they gave it their all on the red carpet last tonight. Beyonce never disappoints, plus she saved Givenchy from Kim’s shame. My three favorite leading ladies: Nina Dobrev, Allison Williams, and Ashley Greene are stunning. Their all black ensembles not only fit the theme, but were also so unique and trend forward in their structure, materials, and embellishments. Rooney is so punk to begin with she could have shown up in anything, however, she chose to surprise us with this white dress. Honestly, I can’t verbalize how tres beyond the material and trimmings are - love the zippers! Last, rising stars, Dakota Fanning and Cara Delevingne joined the skin game; Their slender gowns with the hair on one side are where it’s at. Rodarte and Burberry should be very pleased with this press.
I’m not going to lie, I caved and started following a K.Stew style blog the other day, but this is disappointing. She is such a bad ass and can rock a jumper, however this satin is just not good for her figure… or the fact that she matches the carpet. I may have liked T.Swift’s dress better with a different hairstyle, but there’s just something off. What is up with this animal print? I thought the theme was punk? J.Lo is just too old at this point to pull that off, and I have a love/hate relationship with Coco - this time was hateful. Gwen’s dress looks like it doesn’t really fit her, so before the limo arrived she cut the top, tied a bow and pinned the sides. I will be an Olsen fan until the day I die, but I have no words for Ashley’s choice, to what I consider, the most important fashion event of the year. Last, poor Givenchy… not only did he need to custom make this horrendous print in a quadruple XL, but was asked to make gloves as well.
Wow, I’m sorry that was mean. Oh wait, it’s Kim Kardashian - GO HOME!
I’m going to need a break from homework this evening… stay tuned for my Met Gala review.

Gatsby for Brooks Brothers
There is nothing better than a dapper gentleman who knows how to wear a suit. The Gatsby Collection for Brooks Brothers is dream for young women like me who wish they lived in the 1920s. Brooks Brothers worked closely with the costume designer for the upcoming film The Great Gatsby to produce a collection that draws several looks from the company’s archives. These designs really focus on the fabrics and patterns of the Roaring Twenties. Brooks Brothers is mentioned several times in Fitzgerald’s writing and well represents the American man of status.
If you look close enough, the details are exquisite; you really don’t see this kind of detailing and authenticity anymore. Also, how great are the shoes!? My boyfriend bought a similar pair the other day, needless to say I was excited. It will be interesting to see the movie and compare the men’s fashion in it to the Brooks Brothers’ collection.
You can shop the full collection HERE.
What do you think of the collection? Are you excited for the movie?
Way too inspired by the 80s right now. Loved AnnaSophia Robb’s hair in The Carrie Diaire’s tonight… Here’s my attempt. Looking forward to putting together the perfect outfit for this hairdo this week!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been producing fashion shows, interviewing in New York, and more. I’m going to try to start posting more in the next couple weeks, so stick around!
Yay the prints I ordered arrived! Thanks so much @pizzaparty4ever!
