2017 Met Gala Fashion, Best Dressed

May 8, 2017

The Costume Institute Gala, also known as the Met Gala, is regarded as the top social event of the year in New York City. Fashion experts and style magazines consider it to be the world's best red carpet. The fashion is often outlandish, which is why I love it so much. Anything goes.

This year's theme, was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Rei Kawakubo is the first living designer since Yves Saint Laurent to be the sole subject of the fashion exhibit since 1983. Comme des Garçons is famous for its unusual and outlandish silhouettes, which attendees were encouraged to try and emulate.


Some dressed for the theme. Others did not. Here are my favorites.


ALEXANDER SKARSGARD in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture
I mean, he's just so pretty.


STELLA MAXWELL in H&M
This dress, comprised mostly of pearls, is gorgeous.
I love it.


KATE HUDSON in Stella McCartney
I'm really digging this dress on her.
I also love the makeup, platinum blonde hair and white nails.


EMMY ROSSUM in Carolina Herrera
I don't know why I love this so much, but I do.
Her hair, makeup, nails, and jewelry complete the look.


HAILEY BALDWIN in Carolina Herrera
This is not something I would ever wear, but I still love it.
Does she look like a wedding cake? Maybe.
Love the color, the choker and the veil.


BLAKE LIVELY in Versace
Gold
Feathers
Form-fitting
Broad shoulders
Not to mention how gorgeous she is...
♥♥♥


LILY-ROSE DEPP in Chanel
I like the hot pink.
And I especially love the flower details.


CARA DELEVINGNE in Chanel
It's not a wig, y'all.
She spray painted her head.
Ballsy and I like it.
I love the futuristic feel of this look.


HALLE BERRY in Versace
I don't love her hair and makeup.
But she gets props for sticking to the theme.
I love how three-dimensional this is.


DAKOTA JOHNSON in Gucci
If it were any other event, I would probably hate this.
I love black.
And I like that this is different.


JULIANNE MOORE in Comme des Garçons
Julianne wore a dress by the honored designer.
It's funky and fun.
The earrings are great too.
I don't like the shoes though.


RIHANNA in Comme des Garçons
Rihanna also wore a design by the night's honoree.
And she nailed it!
This wouldn't work anywhere else, but for this event...
Perfection.

Currently, March 2017

March 21, 2017

Since deciding to move forward with a divorce, I've had to refocus my time and energy. Quality time with my kids comes first. I've been cleaning and purging like a mad woman because we'll probably move over the summer. I'm also focusing on the important friendships in my life. I have the best girlfriends in the world. Without them, I probably would have fallen apart. And now, baseball and softball season are in full swing. Most of my weekends between now and June will be spent at one ballpark or another. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I was born to be a sports mom.


Currently Loving


my oversized baseball tote + softball tumbler


Currently Listening To


I've been listening to a lot of 90's rap.
Biggie, Tupac, Snoop, Mase


Currently Enjoying


watching my kids excel in the sport they love


Currently Watching


I just binge watched all 7 seasons of Rules of Engagement and the first season of Santa Clarita Diet.
I didn't watch Rules when it originally aired. I loved it!
Santa Clarita Diet is different and so hilarious. Drew and Timothy are great in it.
Big Little Lies on HBO is so good, even better than the book. The cast is amazing.


Currently Anticipating


I'm going to see my Kentucky Wildcats play in the Sweet Sixteen on Friday.
Here.
In Memphis.
I'm dying, y'all.


Currently Needing


a tropical vacation
or at the very least, a road trip


Currently Wanting


an Apple watch
My birthday's coming up. Maybe I'll buy myself one.


2017 Oscars Fashion, Best Dressed

February 28, 2017

I hope you know that I put a lot of thought into my best dressed lists each year. I often go back and forth until the last minute. There's always one dress on the bubble. Sometimes I agree with the professional fashion critics. Sometimes I don't. That's what makes it so much fun!


MICHELLE WILLIAMS in Louis Vuitton
Michelle was on the bubble.
It's not the best dress in the world.
But I have to give her credit for always looking stunning without overdoing it.
Her beauty is classic and effortless.
When I see her, I want to be her.
And the dress is really pretty.


KARLIE KLOSS in Stella McCartney




It's simple.
It's white.
It has a cape.
And it works with a giant diamond choker.
What's not to love?


HAILEE STEINFELD in Ralph & Russo




I would never wear this, but that's not what matters.
She looks like an angel.
The dress is gorgeous.
It's iridescent.
Her hair and makeup are perfection.
And I don't even care that it's sheer!
#SHOWSTOPPER


EMMA STONE IN GIVENCHY






Emma nails it every time.
I mean, come on.
She looks like an Oscar.
She is probably the only fair-skinned actress who can pull off every color.
She takes Hollywood glamour to the next level.
A gold flapper dress as the very best?
I can't believe it either, but I'm not changing my mind.

2017 Oscars Fashion, La La Land


EMMA ROBERTS
The top looks like lingerie.
The bottom doesn't.
I don't get it.


HALLE BERRY
I like the dress.
I don't like her hair.
I feel like the two don't go together.


SCARLETT JOHANNSON
I don't love the dress, but pink is a great color for her.
And she rocks the hell out of short hair!


LESLIE MANN
I have nothing nice to say.


VIOLA DAVIS
She looks fab in red.
And it's a great dress.


RUTH NEGGA
It's not my style, but she looks great head-to-toe.


TARAJI P. HENSON
Velvet's not my thing, but she looks fabulous.


ALICIA VIKANDER
This whole look is underwhelming.
Also, this is how I wear my hair around the house.


BUSY PHILLIPS
I don't like this, but it seems to work on her.


BRIE LARSON
I don't hate it, but I don't think I like it either.
Something's off.


SALMA HAYEK
I don't like her hair.
And the dress just isn't quite right.


CHARLIZE THERON
I'm not loving the dress material or color.
She still looks flawless though.


KIRSTEN DUNST
It's very early nineties prom.
She makes it work though.


JANELLE MONAE
This is unique and suits her style aesthetic.
