The Met Gala
Charlly Says: Overall, for a big fashion event I was underwhelmed. But then again, seeing how much of a role Vogue plays in the event, I’m not surprised that the whole affair was blandly inoffensive. There were some strong showings, especially from the models…perhaps a sign that the glory days of the super model are set to return.
Izzy Says: It’s an homage to American classic sportswear that the Gap sponsored this year’s Met Gala honoring the American Woman. But like sportswear, there was a bit of the wow factor missing. It surely was nothing like 2008’s “Superheroes;” then again, I’m a sucker for all things shiny and fantastic. I did appreciate the diversity in the choices many guests made in representing the American woman in all her incarnations. Maybe it’s because I was paying closer attention this year, but I have to say there was much more ‘eww, really?’ and far less ‘werk queen!'”
Izzy Says: Great color, peak-a-boo lace, vavavoom.
Charlly Says: Simple, elegant, and incredibly refined.
Izzy Says: Looking like the coy girl next door in a subtle but eye-catching shade of lilac.
Charlly Says: As crazy as it is awesome, Chanel Iman is showing all the “starlets” how edgy evening wear is done.
Izzy Says: Doing short black and chic so right.
Charlly Says: A lesson in fashion math…That Face + That Dress = Pure Perfection!
Izzy Says: My favorite model in my favorite look of the night it evoked sea-foam creatures and a bit of Alexander McQueen.
Charlly Says: “It’s Janet, Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty.”
Izzy Says: Delicious, sexy, but classy.
Charlly Says: When Versace is good, it’s so good.
