2014 Met Gala Red Carpet (Part 1)

Of any posts here on ChiCityFashion, there’s nothing I look forward to more than writing about a red carpet event. But when it comes to something as fashion-focused as the Met Gala, I’m pretty much freaking out for weeks in advance (and I don’t even go to this thing).

So last night was the big night. We saw a lot of crop tops, dramatic backs and my predictions were oh-so-wrong (with one exception). Kind of a bummer that Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence didn’t show up. I always look forward to seeing what they’ll wear (and unfortunately I wasn’t either of their understudies for this particular event) but we still have 87 looks to judge. Yes, 87. Take a deep breath and…let’s go.

The Leather Jacket

Nothing says “closet staple” more than a leather jacket. They go with just about everything, one can instantly add an effortless and cool factor to any look and they can be worn as outerwear or as part of the outfit. You really can’t lose. So if you don’t currently have a leather jacket in your wardrobe or you’re looking to upgrade your current style, then you do not want to miss this…

Thank You, Kate

I thought about doing a Throwback Thursday in honor of Kate Moss’s birthday (it just so happens to be on the only day of the week you can throw it back, apparently) but I just did that for the other British Kate (as in Middleton) one week ago today. I couldn’t ignore the fact that THE Kate Moss is turning 40 so I thought we should do something a little differently to celebrate her four fabulous decades on earth.

So, here’s a look at some things we can thank Kate for.
