PUNK: Chaos to Couture
Best Dressed at the Met Gala 2013
The Met Gala 2013 is here! But I’m sure you already know this. It’s been trending worldwide on Twitter for hours, its taking over the popular page on Instagram, and its liked by all of your friends on Facebook. Unless you live under a rock—in which case—you wouldn’t be reading this anyway.
The big red carpet affair inspired the world’s biggest celebrities to channel their inner rockstar and strut their stuff in their best edge couture. Here are my TOP 10 Best Dressed of the night (in no particular order).
Anne Hathaway in Valentino — Edgy. Sexy. Couture.
Nicole Richie in Topshop — Shows you how to be edgy without a spec of black. Literally.
Coco Rocha in Emanuel Ungaro — What Jennifer Lopez’s dress should’ve looked like.
Sienna Miller — Love the juxtaposition of hard and soft, ladylike and fuck you.
Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton — Schooling you on how to be edgy…with florals! Now that’s a skill.
Cara Delevingne in Burberry — Nobody does studs and spikes like Burberry.
Anja Rubik — Eat your heart out Michael Jackson. Now that’s a thriller dress.
Rooney Mara in Givenchy — Giving you more than a girl with a dragon tattoo.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles Deacon — D.R.A.M.A.
Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier — Being edgy is being rebellious, and what better way to be a rebel than rocking pants and leather on the red carpet?
And no, I will not talk about Kim Kardashian’s
What is the Met Gala?
The Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today. The exhibition will feature approximately one hundred designs for men and women showing how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.
The exhibit focuses on the relationship between the punk concept of “do-it-yourself” and the couture concept of “made-to-measure,” and will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the anti-establishment style.

Best Dressed Gents at the 2013 Academy Awards
The 85th Academy Awards (also known as The Oscars) were held tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. And while the ceremony honored the best films of 2012, I’d like to honor the impeccable sense of style of the gentlemen who stepped out of their 501s, tees and wayfarers to show off their best suit and ties—a la Justin Timberlake.
The man of the hour, Daniel Day-Lewis, is pristine in a midnight blue shawl collar Domenico Vacca tuxedo complete with a flat-fold pocket square. This gentlemen knows what he’s doing. The Best Actor-winner snags top sartorial honors.
Oh the musings on the culture of keeping up appearances.
Best Dressed Gents:
1. Daniel Day-Lewis in Domenico Vacca (Best Dressed)
2. Chris Pine in Ermenegildo Zegna
3. Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen
4. Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford
5. Chris Evans in Gucci
6. Hugh Jackman in Tom Ford
7. Jon Hamm Salvatore Ferragamo

Leah Labelle at the 2012 Soul Train Awards
I had so much fun dressing Leah Labelle for the Soul Train Awards this year. With her hot single “Sexify,” produced by Pharrell Williams and Jermaine Dupri, Miss Labelle is heating up the music industry, and tonight she’ll be taking the stage at the 2012 Soul Train Awards for a special song tribute. She is also a
nominee WINNER in the Centric Award category.
When choosing her looks for the big night, we put all the focus on who Leah is as an individual. She’s daring, classy, sexy and confident. We played it classy on the red carpet with a white and gold long sleeve dress paired with aquamarine Louboutins. For the performance, we opted for sexy and confident with a high/low skirt which had great fluidity when she moved around on stage. We paired it with a glitzy midriff top expensing just the right amount of skin, and e completed both looks with statement jewelry by Micha Design.
Tune in to BET or Centric tonight to see Leah LaBelle at the 2012 Soul Train Awards.
I know these two will…

Blazer and pants: Balmain
Another one of my favorites of the night. I absolutely love Balmain and very few people could pull off the dish Gwen is serving. I am utterly obsessed with this black velvet, fully embellished, blazer. Best Dressed for sure.
