Besides the Met Gala, fashion’s next big night of the year would be the CFDA Awards (which are tonight!) But because I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to talk about them, I thought we’d have a little non-red-carpet chat today.
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!
With summer approaching (weather depending of course) it’s not only time for some new wardrobe pieces (Printed shorts? Metallic sandals? Impractical sunnies?) but also time to revisit the skincare department. As temperatures rise, it becomes less comfortable to wear a face full of makeup. And with a good foundation (and I don’t mean liquid or powder) you won’t have to.
SS14 typically refers to the Spring/Summer 2014 collections but today we’re giving it a whole new meaning — Summer Skin 2014 (after all, having good skin is always in fashion).
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.
