Best Dressed: Met Ball 2017

As the coolest, most fun-watching, and avant garde carpet of them all, the Met Ball is the rebel cousin of red carpets. The one the rest gawk at in admiration and pray for a bit of its coolness to rub off on them.

However, fascination doesn’t come without a risk of its own. For those who dare walk this carpet, there is a fine line between a perfect revolutionary and fashionable look, and a what-where-you-thinking, painfully cringing apparition. Since an image can speak louder than words, let’s stop talking and start showing!

The Succesful Risk-takers

Here are those who delivered style, progress, and excitement all wrapped in one, without eroding their own image.

Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren offered us a masterclass on accessorizing. This look could have fallen short for the Met Ball, had it not been for the red Balenciaga boots and the pink mesh, daintily wrapped around her face.

Best Dressed: BAFTA Awards 2017

Last night was a major one on the calendar of both actors and singers. While London hosted the 2017 BAFTA Awards, LA did its part with the Grammys. This is great news for us who get to admire or cringe over a whole bunch of dazzling or dreadful looks, accordingly.  As biased as you guys know that I am, let’s begin our review with London.

I will sum up this red carpet as an Alexander McQueen night, for although it was not the reigning designer of the event in terms quantity (Gucci had more numbers on the carpet), it was definitely the reigning one in terms of splendour. Talking about reigning, Kate Middleton, our beloved British Cinderella, looked radiant in an off-the shoulder, floral McQueen. She exuded royal poise with every step.

Coral Reefs and Slenderness

LV RESORT15

Some people think that first impressions are of utmost importance. For me, first impressions are like book covers, you get a glimpse of what the book is about and what praises it gets, but you don’t really know if you like it or not until you get immersed in the story that it withholds.

So Ghesquière’s AW14 show for Louis Vuitton was the cover to this book, and Resort 2015 was the prologue. I have to admit, his second collection really engaged me. It absorbed me into an underwater world of coral reefs and slenderness. How could it not? There were models walking on water (who said fashion couldn’t defy gravity?) and colourful garments swaying in and out of the runway, as if swiftly pushed by the ocean waves. It was a relaxing voyage to a place of experimentation. Mix-matching prints, colours and materials were everywhere to be seen. The reinventing of silhouettes, genres, and pieces had its climax on that reversed off-the-shoulder top. My absolute favourite, however, were those super elegant, and elongating flare trousers in pastel pink and yellow! Yes, Yes, Yes! Need I say anything more about them?
