Tawdry print……but does it have to be!

 We get animal print so wrong on so many levels.

Ugh! Total eyesore!

…..but I believe that there are ways not to look like a cheap hooker in print.

1. Minimize the print big time. You can never go wrong when you wear print as an accessory.

 2. Hide the print in something sheer

3. Shift the focus elsewhere by pairing up with some color that pops.

4. Pronounce it but don’t over-do it.

MET Gala 2015: Best Dressed

Now I didn’t have many great picks from the Gala….but i appreciate the few who did the theme justice

Miley Cyrus in Alexander Wang

1. I thought that this was the most creative piece. Miley did do the theme justice. The fitted black gown with large cutouts revealed her hips and stomach and a little bit of pelvic bone. The dress, which was studded all over, also featured a high collar and long sleeves. She kept her makeup to a minimum and maintained a slicked down icy blue-grey hair ‘do. It was simple, creative and sexy too.

2.  A work of art, this dress is.  It is like a flower that just bloomed for the world to see or a freshly opened creature from the sea peeping through, however you choose to look at it that is what MET Gala is all about. The dress is straight from the runway, featured in the Giles Autumn/Winter 2015 collection although Solange did make some slight changes to the dress.

Rihanna in Guo Pei

3….and the award for the most daring and the best costume goes to badgirlRiRi. Now this is her kind of event. The use of a chinese couture designer definitely paid off. !!!Costume party!!!

MET Gala 2015: Obvious looks

MET Gala, huh! Is there an occasion that would speak more to a fashion lover….I don’t think so. MET Gala is the place for expressing one self through one’s outfit.

So the 2015 theme was “China: Through the Looking Glass” and so I expected the less creative individuals to actually take the literal meaning & that sheer would grace the red carpet and boy was I right. The pieces were okay but creativity was not a factor considered… sheer was too obvious.

However my favorite dress among these was Kim Kardashian’s The fitting, the stitching, the details….it was appropriate and it was clear that she was out to impress
