Met Gala Fashion: Almost Punk

So we already know who completely missed the punk memo last night, but we have to discuss those who tried…but failed. Not saying all of these ladies are on the worst dressed list, but their attempt at punk was so close…yet so far.

The Best & Worst of the Fall 2012 Ads

Now that Spring ’13 is upon us (a month away to be exact), that means stores are finally getting in the Fall ’12 merchandise (see how fashion makes sense) and the new ad campaigns are out for all to judge. As always, there are some good ones and some that just confuse me, so to make things easy we’re just going to do this superlative style.

PhotobucketWorst hair: Chanel. I know it’s Chanel but come on…it looks like Edward Scissorhands went to town on this poor girl.

Resort 2012: Neon Scuba

I normally don’t freak out over the “inbetween collections” (meaning Resort & Pre-Fall) like I do for the “main attractions” (Spring and Fall). For some reason though, this particular Resort season has really blown me away. It didn’t hit me at first, but then I really studied the collections and realized a major trend.





There is neon, there is scuba, then there’s neon scuba

Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony

Many of you are probably thinking, “why would I ever want to wear neon scuba?” Well…why not? Neon is awesome. Although space is limited for a Twitter bio, I made sure to include “it shouldn’t be on if it isn’t neon” in mine. And as for scuba…what better says RESORT than SCUBA?

Unfortunately, neon flippers are not included…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 CFDA Awards (Part 2)

I’m still a little confused as to why some of these celebrities attend this event. If you’re going to attend the awards ceremony for the Council of FASHION Designers of America, I’d hope you have some sense of fashion.

Anyway, I hope you’re all caught up with part 1 of my CFDA red carpet commentary, and now let’s move on to part 2…


Katie Cassidy in Behnaz Sarafpour

Just because you’re on the most fashionable show on TV (even though you played a crazy bitch), doesn’t mean you should be attending fashion events. This is exhibit A.


Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu (pictured with the designer)

I’m not a fan of red dresses and I’m less of a fan when paired with black accessories but for some reason I am loving this look. Maybe because Karlie is one of the raddest models out there. Maybe it’s because it’s a gorgeous Jason Wu gown. Most likely a combination of both.


Joy Bryant in Rachel Roy (pictured with the designer)

I think Joy Bryant is great and Rachel Roy is a beautiful person inside and out, which is why I feel terrible saying this…but I’m just hating everything. The dress is too tight and too short, there is too much black, and hair half up/half down rarely works for anybody.


Jessica Alba in Diane von Furstenberg

I absolutely love this color combo. These hues look perfect with Jessica’s glowing skin. This dress would look great on any girl…pregnant or not!


Emmanuelle Chriqui in David Meister

When bad dresses (and terrible styling) happen to pretty people.


Doutzen Kroes in J. Mendel

Too many elements I personally don’t like…red dress, black shoes, and one shoulder (a LONG SLEEVE one shoulder). She looks gorgeous though…and I do love the shoes (just not with the dress).


Chloe Sevigny in her own design for Opening Ceremony

Why does she look like she’s casting a spell on me here? Anyway, there are way too many design elements going on–ruffle, eyelet lace, plunging neckline, etc. And especially paired with those shoes…it’s just too much!


Ashley Greene in Michael Kors

Love the dress. I kind of like it on her. The poor styling is what kills it. The shoes are awful and the hair looks like a high school girl went crazy with a flat iron.


Amber Heard in Cynthia Rowley

When I initially look at this I think the main color of the dress washes her out. But the more I stare, the detailing really sticks out and brings some life to the dress. I love the unconventional shoe pairing and the belt is a nice touch.


Alessandra Ambrosio in Prabal Gurung

This is such a gorgeous dress but that enormous necklace is ruining it. Prabal is such a talented designer and Alessandra is so beautiful, but that damn necklace…it’s just unfortunate.

**Update: So I browsed through more photos of of Alessandra in this dress and I have officially changed my mind. I LOVE this look. When I saw shots at different angles (see these photos) I immediately fell in love. The necklace no longer bothers me…one of my favorite looks from the night!
