When you hear about someone who’s had a successful career in fashion, we always seem to assume they’ve eaten (well, barely) breathed and slept fashion their whole lives. And for those who might admire fashion from afar (with hopes of maybe being involved in the industry one day) know that you don’t have to take the typical path. You might work in finance one day and then end up styling a major celebrity at a huge music festival the next…just like my latest Fashion Friend, Whitney Middleton.
We’re officially less than two weeks away from my favorite day of the year (which for most people is maybe Christmas or their birthday…but not for me). The first Monday in May is just around the corner but The First Monday In May is already here.
I was seriously debating writing this post as it’s now official that the Met Gala has taken over the ChiCityFashion.com home page. But you know what? This is my favorite event of the entire year, so I’m just going keep rolling with it. You already know who wore what (and my very honest opinions about each look) but how did those dresses end up on each girl? Do you know how long it took to make Rihanna’s dress? What designer didn’t see his own creation until the night of the Met Ball? I’m going to stop asking these questions and just answer them already!
And now for the moment we’ve all been waiting for…it’s time for BEST DRESSED OF THE NIGHT. Let’s see if you agree.
