Favorites from the Met Ball..

Sorry I haven’t been posting recently. I’m struggling as it’s finals week, but I just had to devote at least one post to the Met Ball that was last night.  The dresses/ensembles were simply too beautiful to put off. While the theme was “models as muses,” I think more than just the models’ outfits were muse-worthy. Here are some of my favs…some commentary included…    (photos: style.com)

 

Ashley Olsen in her own line The Row (I love her new haircut, very Gwenyth)

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson (she's wearing Chanel Haute Couture) I have to say I'm always a fan of Chanel's white lace (remember Maggie Gyllenhall's white lace with pink bow?)

Kate Hudson, Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler and Kate Bosworth (all of these dresses are just beautiful. Props to Stella she designed them all!) I especially love both Kates' dresses. She captured their essences so well!

Darya Werbowy in Balmain (simple but I really like the ankle boot. Balmain is very chic right now. I'm surprised she didn't choose a higher shoulder)

Mary Kate Olsen in a vintage Christian Lacroix Haute Couture (at first I didn't really like this, but I think the way that she did her hair/makeup makes it look very ethereal and quite beautiful)

Erin Wasson in Phi and Lady Amanda Harlech (I really like Erin Wasson's look. It's not exactly Met Ball appropriate, but I love the edge she always carries with her. The paints look very Alexander Wang.)

Design Duo Vena Cava: Sophie Buhal and Lisa Mayock in their own designs (I love Lisa's little top with the pants very innovative. You can definitely tell that these girls are designers.)

mv5bmjaymzkxmzexof5bml5banbnxkftztcwmdqyndezmq_v1_sx282_sy400_There is a reason Paris is considered one of the fashion capitals, if not the fashion capital of the world. Paris is…well, chic.  Starting from the 18th century, France became the culture capital of the world. Every woman wanted to dress and act like a french woman. With the famous lives of French female royalty documented in films today such as Sophia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette,” how can we blame the women of the 18th century?  They just wanted to be fashionable and chic like many women do today.  Trends might have changed from silk corsets and white wigs to black blazers and skinny jeans, but french fashion icons like that of Marie Antoinette still influence women as if over two hundred years haven’t gone by.  Current fabulous French it girls include Lou Dillion (daughter of famous Jane Birkin), Charlotte Gainsbourg (daughter of Serge Gainsbourg) and Clemence Poesy (actress).  All of these girls have mastered the look that French woman are known for. The chic, disheveled yet still completely put together sexiness that us Americans can only dream of.  Here are some of the Frenchie’s best looks…
