I was reading up on the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Insitute Gala (it was last night), which is basically a big party where celebrities are at liberty to take fashion risks. This year’s theme was “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion”. Here are some observations:
I am only mildly embarassed to admit that I am a true fan of the Olsen twins. It dates back to my early childhood, when I would constantly watch The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley, and through my pre-teen to early teen years, when I unashamedly loved their straight-to-VHS movies. Mary-Kate’s gotten a little too crazy for me, but Ashley has incredible style. And I love this white dress from the Olsen’s own line, The Row. The front is unimpressive, but with a reverse side like this, who cares?
And can I mention how I find Bar Refaeli incredibly beautiful, without sounding creepy? I should hate her (I mean, she’s dating my first love Leonardo DiCaprio). But she’s almost too beautiful to hate. I think she might be my new favorite supermodel. Yes, I am replacing Gisele Bundchen with Bar, since I’m still bitter about Gisele pimping out stepson John in Vanity Fair.
Another dress I loved was Jessica Biel’s Versace Atelier. It was nice that she took a risk without going too far. Sure, she’s looking a little too bronze, but disregard that and everything else works. I’m not usually a fan of Jessica, but anyone looks better on the arm of Justin Timberlake (who, by the way, is totally channeling my boyfriend Andy Samberg with those glasses).
Rihanna, what is this? It doesn’t matter that it’s Dolce & Gabbana, it’s still crazy. Am I the only one out there who is so NOT a Rihanna fan??
