2013 Met Gala "Punk: Chaos to Couture" My Picks -Worst and Best Dressed

With Beyonce as Honorary Chair of the event, the 2013 Met Gala might just be the swankiest one yet. The Annual Event which formally kicks off the Metropolitan Museum of Art's yearly Costume Institute exhibit, always brings in a bevy of style stars, from models to designers to Hollywood's A-list.Whether these taste makers paid homage to the punk theme  or stuck to a more classic look  you'll want to see all the high-octane looks from the highly anticipated event 

Here are my picks for Best dressed based on the occasion , the classic dressed and the unfortunately worst dressed.. who dropped the ball on the whole theme of the event.

from L-R Eve in D'Auxilly ,Sarah Jessica Parker in  Headpiece by Phillip Treacy and Dress by Giles Deacon , Beyonce in Givenchy,Ann Hathaway in Valentino, Nicole Richy in Topshop and Julie Macklowe in Zang Toi 

Other Favs includes

from  L-R Katie Holmes in Calvin Klien, Mylie Cyrus in Marc Jacobs, Minka Kelly in Carolina Herrera, Gweneth Paltrow in Valentino Couture, Jennier Lopez in Michael Kors,Cameron Diaz in Stella McCartney and Ginnifer Goodwin in Tory Burch

Unfortunately there had to be some that weren't  dressed up to par they are deemed "Worst dressed" I know i will get some backlash for a few but I love most as the actresses they are but when it comes to fashion they leave less to be desired.

The Worst Dressed were:

From L-R Kerry Washington in Vera Wang, Clearly either the stylist or the designer dropped the ball on this one didn't like the print or color or a combination of both on Kerry at all. I love her as an actress but somebody dropped the ball on this look.

Christina Ricci in Vivenne Westwood, I love this designer, Tartan is definitely in but it takes a certain personality to pull off a dress like this and unfortunately that person was not Christina.

Ashley Olsen in Vintage Dior , Not sure what to say but the Corpse Bride Aunt came to mind. Yup I created that character. Didnt like the color or design of this dress it may have worked better on a taller person

Kim Kardashian in Ricardo Tisci I can only think of Upholstery fabric when i look at this dress and not one I would dare drape a sofa or a curtain in my home with. and to make matters worst she opted for Matching shoes. I think this was her way or still being in the lime light by donning and undesirable dress.
 Kim Knows to be on the worst or best dress list means she s still on a list. Kudos to you.

I am no stylist but these Celebs has all of fashion on their fingertips. These are just my Picks if I had choices like they do.

Thanks for reading

Its My Birthday!!!

Hey Guys, Its my Birthday Doing the birthday Dance... lol It was a blast, even though I don't feel my age my friends surely didn't  make me think it either!
I received a few gifts from my friends Spa days and Skin improvement gifts which i loved I had however to mention this Marc Jacobs Bag I received See below.
Its from the Neiman Marcus for Target collection and I loved everything about it the shimmery leather texture and the industrial sturdy zipper. Will go nicely with most of my shiny outfits...

Getting dressed I Chose a Fish Scaled designed dress from BCBG Max Azaria, Steve Madden eggplant colored Platform Heels; Of course I mixed in my Birthday gift the Marc Jacobs Pouch and for makeup I went with gold-brown eyes and lashes and Mac Lipsticks in Lavender and Pink (will mention colors later).
Jewelry was a fashion necklace with lavender and purple stones,Andrinne from HSN's crystal watch,crystal stretch bracelet and a silver dome-shaped lavender and clear stone ring.
  I Celebrated the Night At Club Euro Where I enjoyed a few Drinks
 These cupcakes were divine they were Margarita Favored which also had the cute margarita design with the straw and lemon. and there was also the strawberry Daiquiri favored with the red velvet color pink frosting and sprinkles.
Needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed my day!
