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.

Top 5: 2017 Golden Globes

I know, I know this post comes a bit late, but hey, better later than never! Award season has started. Back when I was living in London, as a fashion assistant to a celebrity stylist, I particularly remember this time of the year as one of the most hectic, nail-biting moments of them all.
