This is just the beginning

As you must know by now, The Golden Globes were yesterday night.

So, of course, we have a ton of fashion break down from the Red Carpet.

I have to say there were more rights than wrongs, but one of the worst looks came from Cate Blanchett. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, this woman has style and takes a lot of risks that make fashion fun, but this time was a huge NO, NEVER AGAIN.

The pink frilled Givenchy was terrifying to say the least. It was like an ode to the twenties mixed with cabaret and a granny look gone wrong. The hair was off as well.

Rooney Mara is always weird, I just don’t get that obsession of wearing dresses that are the same as your skin tone. It rarely looks good, even if you’re wearing Alexander McQueen.

Jennifer Lawrence was my favorite in a hot red Dior with obliques cut outs, and that huge Chopard necklace. She was edgy and elegant, and fun.

Brie Larson went for the golden trend and the cut outs, that seemingly will never leave. I loved the dress, I just think she could’ve gone for a different hairdo, that would’ve paired better with the Calvin Klein daring gown

Lady Gaga wore a black velvet Atelier Versace. She looked good, just not great as people are saying. I’m sorry, the hair was a little weird, as well as the overdone make up.  I think everyone thinks she looks perfect, given the fact that she’s worn meat.

Katy Perry wore a simple pink Prada gown. Weird for her, and weird for the italian Maison known for the extravagant designs. Katy look very elegant, the hair was cool and the make up was right. I liked it, but didn’t love it

Alicia Vikander in white pleated Louis Vuitton. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the dress was made for her. It fitted her perfectly, and expressed simplicity, elegance and even innocence. It was a good choice.

Kate Hudson in a bare midriff Michael Kors. This cannot be called a gown. It was a long fitted skirt with a bandeau top. It was risky, but Kate pulled it off just right.

Amy Adams in Atelier Versace. The dress had that crystal beaded detail, and the intense blood orange tone was just right. Amy has improved her style choices.

Saoirse Ronan wearing Couture Saint Laurent. As we already saw with Vikander and will see it again, the “greek-roman” trend will have a come back. And it is fine, those silhouttes are very flattering if you know how to wear them right. This one even made Saoirse look like a girl, considering the dress was white, she should’ve gone for a little more outstanding make up.

Emily Rossum in Armani Privé. I have to admit I love the red, and the simplicity, yet it is not one of my favorite dresses. There’s something missing, because I feel it is a little boring this way.

Lily James in a sheer Marchesa. Following the trend, is this one translucent, one shoulder  “greek-roman” gown.The dress is great, the hair and the make up not so much.

Kate Winslet goes for the safe bet. Stylish, yet safe that’s what this navy Ralph Lauren says to everyone. Do you think Kate should start taking some risks? And loose the crazy hairdo?

Julianne Moore is a risk taker. Sometimes she gets it wrong, and some others are incredibly right like this shimmering body hugging navy blue Tom Ford. Even the long straight hair is right.golden-globes-2016-julianne-moore.jpg

Kate Bosworth went also for the shimmering body hugging gown, but chose a pink/reddish Dolce & Gabbana that fitted her perfectly. I’m just not sure of the ultra slick hair.

Olivia Wilde wore a shimmering red Michael Kors that fitted her perfectly. Although the make up was flawless, and she clearly wanted to show off her ombré, the jewels specially the necklace required an up do, so it would really pop up.

This is my favorite. Kirsten Dunst in Valentino. I loved the latest Valentino collection, with the roman trend because it is feminine and elegant and sensual and edgy, some of which Valentino hasn’t been since the departure of Garavani.

The black velvet, plunging cleavage gown was gracefully accompanied by earrings and bracelet. I would have chosen a stronger make up, but she did very well this time.

MET Gala 2015 China: Through the looking glass.

Tonight, The MET hosts fashions biggest party, as it unveils its fashion exhibit.

This year you will be able to see China’s fashion development. And it is always interesting, as the “asian” trend has been off the table for some time now. If you remember, back in the 90’s, we were all wearing those “China inspired” dresses and jackets.

Asian influence also goes to animals and bamboo prints. Sheer, delicate fabrics with a lot of flow, and at the same time, silky body hugging satin and structured taffetas. As it is China, it is mandatory some red and gold. The Invite also included some intricate head embellishments, and flowers. You’ll get it when you see Sarah Jessica Parker, as every other year.

Gold and silver, as well as semi nakedness under shiny embellishments and sheer fabrics, cut outs and some king of crop top were some of the trends on the red carpet.

Let it be said that most of the dresses had no relation whatsoever with China or any asian influence whatsoever, so the theme of the Gala should be stablished sooner so the participants had more time to figure out their dresses.
Rihanna showed up with a Guo Pei Couture gown which is obviously chinese by origin, but if you didn’t know I’m sure you would not figure it out it has any “asian influence”. I have to say that i loved Rihanna wearing the extra fluffy Pink Giambattista Valli, but this yellow giant cape with train and the head piece, and the shiny white sandals, and the necklace were a little bit too much, even for Rihanna who has proven to be able to pull off almost everything.

Let’s see the dresses.

Some may be missing, but you get the point.

Remember that the MET announced that they would ban any social media posting, but apparently that isn’t working effectively since Madonna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have already released a picture of themselves inside the party. So let’s stay tuned to see how these people can survive in their naked dresses.

In case you didn’t know, the dress code for this MET Gala at the Costume Institute was full evening attire, which means gowns, tuxedos, and up hairdos.
Of course, fashion will always give to the bold, the choice to break through the conventions and restrictions, whether those choices are right or wrong, that’s just up to the one who chooses the dress.
Beyoncé showed up in a black shiny beaded couture Givenchy, and I didn’t like it one bit. She looked like she belonged in a cabaret in the 20’s.
Instead, I really loved the risk that Emma Stone and Rihanna took, by taking the crop top to an elegant place. Not like Anne Hathaway, she was not wearing a crop top, she was wearing an ill fitting top, over a long skirt.
I understand that Sarah Jessica Parker was the ultimate fashion icon through Carrie Bradshaw, but she usually takes that honor to terrible extremes and this Oscar de la Renta was in that place. The dress was already big with a long, branded train and she chose to overwhelm it with that huge bun, and the gloves with the jewelry. Let that be a lesson to us all as how not to overdo a piece of clothing.
That being said, Oscar de la Renta and Stella McCartney where the designers of the night. I get Oscar, he’s a master mind of beautiful dresses and gowns, but Stella? Anyway, I loved the trouser, cut out skin tight top look that Cara Delevigne was wearing. That girl gets it right every time.
Jessica Alba looked flawless in that golden beaded Vivienne Westwood. Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence opted for their brand, Dior, and both were great. I still can’t decide if I loved the blue, circle cut out knee high dress that Cotillard was wearing, or the black beaded one of JLaw.
I must confess that I find the Kardashians a plague upon the face of humanity, and one of the reasons of everything that’s just wrong with the world, and I also think that Kanye West is stupid and has a terrible attitude. But the fact that she has gotten Ricardo Tisci to create the most horrible gown in his story as a designer, and she convinced Alber Elbaz to give her that gown that could’ve been a glorious one in somebody else is just beyond me. I can’t get my head around that. Victoria Beckham was wearing one piece of her own collection, and all was fine till we saw that make up. It made her face look small and weird.
Giselle in Balenciaga, clearly an Alexander Wang one. Flawless obviously.
Blake lively in a rosé Gucci Premiere, also fantastic, channeling vintage glamour. Kirsten Dunst and that weird Star Wars honoring Roland Mouret. Not the kind of dress I would go for. Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton, I don’t believe that particular dress was suited for the occasion but she makes it work. The it girl of the moment, Lupita N’yongo in Prada again going for the vintage 20’s. The bright color was perfect for her, I just believe her head accessory should’ve been smaller.
Charlize Theron in Dior, no comment here, you just have to love her.
Shailenne Woodley in a horrific Miu Miu. That was, along with Katie Holme’s belle marchesa gown, the worst of the night hands down. If these people have stylists just dedicated to make them look good, why do they let them go to the street looking like that?
Georgia May Jagger dared to show a lot of skin in Thierry Mugler, a brand that’s not used much anymore, and has fantastic pieces. It was bold but elegant.
Karlie Kloss is the proof of what I just said about Oscar de la Renta. This black and gold gown is perfect for the occasion, is elegant, is sexy, and fits her perfectly.

This was a good night for fashion.

En el pasado…
