Kendall Jenner in Off-White

The fashions that done the MET Gala red carpet never ceases to amaze.  This year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” made for some seriously fierce looks.   I posted my favorites on my instagram feed this am.  Here I’ll attempt to source affordable ready to wear look-a-likes.   99% of the attendees could wear a paper bag and make it look stunning but these pieces are show stoppers!

Kendall Jenner, now considered a veteran of the Met Gala red carpet, looked super cool in an Off-White OTS jumpsuit.   The piece was fairly simple with a couple stand out details, sheer gloved sleeves and pant legs with trains!   Her hair and make-up was flawless.  She accessorized with diamond statement earnings and rings from Tiffany & Co..  In the side by side, I’ve pictured this white off the shoulder number from by the way, it’s so reasonable and adorable for summer, I think I have to have it.

The stunning and always elegant Lily Aldridgeis wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection dress with a metallic belt hand-twisted and hand-knotted and finished with Swarovski crystals. She finished her look with a Jimmy Choo clutch and shoes, and Bulgari jewelry.  The Privacy Please dress from Revolve is a super reasonable take on the stunning Ralph Lauren look:

Other honorable mentions:

It was Talita von Fürstenberg‘s birthday and she looked like the belle of the ball in a beautiful sky blue gown designed by her legendary grandmother.  I’m in love with Amanda Uprichard Amalia Gown for $334, the color is to die for, what a perfect dress for a summer wedding.

Gigi Hadid, always a favorite of mine.  I love her style, california cool with a touch of NYC sophistication.  She wore an incredible Versace with stain glass window-inspired detail, I can’t stop looking at pictures of the dress.  While there aren’t many “real life” versions of this dress…the Michelle Mason dress from Forward.com, bares a resemblance with it’s single sleeve and high slit.  I can see this being fabulous at a summer party in the Hamptons.

Gisele nails this event every year, I’m not sold on her look being on theme, but it was gorgeous none the less.  The eco friendly custom Versace gown was the perfect color yellow, this Likely one shoulder is giving me similar vibes.

Anna Wintour’s diamond rosary and “Cardinal Chanel” dress were show stoppers.  I can’t say that AW is often a muse for my style but in this case I was drooling.   The neckline reminded me a bit of Gigi’s dress from 2016’s Met Gala.  This Alexis Annabella mock neck sheath dress, has similar lines and texture.

Hailee Steinfeld is quickly becoming a fashion darling.  Her style has evolved a great deal over the last couple of years, while maintaining her girly, feminine, youthful core, she has become increasingly more glam and edgy.  Her look for last night’s Met Gala was fit for a fashion Queen, she wore a white Prabal Gurung gown, with crystal embellishments and a simple classic  “popesque” tiara.  This Versace V-neck ruched tulle slip dress on sale for $399 has similar crystal embellishments and lines.

That just about wraps up my red carpet review…What were your favorite looks?

Life through Rose Colored Glasses

If only life was as pretty as it is when seen through rose colored glasses.  If you adore pink as much as I do, you’d agree that it can be used in almost any element of style for a beautiful aesthetic. With Spring’s recent “debut” we are seeing pink on the racks, at beauty counters, in the pages of magazines and all over pinterest and instagram.  Rose pink is not just a pretty color, the natural elements of rose hips and rose seed oil contain a power amount of vitamin C, that have proven to make incredibly effective beauty products. At the moment, my go to day cream is Laura Mercier’s Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème .  Rose gold has also become a very popular metal for accessories, for hardware on handbags and clothing. Currently, these are some of my favorite rose inspired products and images.
