Met Ball 2017: Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons

The 2016 Met Gala’s theme is Manus x Machina, and appropriately, Marchesa tweeted out a collaboration with IBM- and their “Cognitive Dress” in the early morning hours.

AMA’S Best and Worst Dressed

The Good The garments, styling, beauty- for the most part, everything seemed to create a cohesive look….with the exception of Teyana Taylor, whose hair and makeup seemed to be disparate from the dress itself….a subtler brow and less highlight on the cheeks…perhaps a slightly less nude lip, and an up-do would’ve made this look complete…

Rihanna X Dior Sunglasses

First, Manolo Blahnik, now Dior Sunglasses, later- Beauty…Rihanna is on yet another roll, now a commercial one.  The influencer takes to creative design collaborations sure to sell, sell, sell.  While I thought the Manolo boots were a bit much, they’ve appeared in music videos and fashion magazines alike…I’m sure these sunnies will appear similarly, as…

Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

The Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was a mix of the unwearable and originality met with attention to detail.

Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

Romantic, feminine, with flowing embellished and embroidered dresses and coats seemingly inspired by Asian trends and mixed with story book illustrations, the Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was ornate and delicate, and rather graphic as well.  While I didn’t like the blue cape I loved the art nouveau illustrations on it. **Warning- Graphic description:  I…

Converse-ation

Let’s have the Converse-ation about Converse…you may hate them, you may love them, and yes, they may be on-trend for a while longer.  Fashion is just about ready to move from the 90’s into the 70’s, and that means that you can expect to continue to see 90’s influenced fashion for 3-6 months past that…

May I? May Mags

Jennifer Lopez serves up some blank model gaze on the cover of W Magazine’s May issue, with an illegible “One & Only” title matching the logo in pastel rainbow gradation. She wears a black bra beneath a  white lace buttonup and an open-front black cardigan with white trip.  The makeup is a nude lip, subtly…
