After a few questionable themes, do you remember the year of punk? The Met Gala 2016 displayed a high-tech vibe for this year’s exhibition, ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’, and if I’m honest it produced more misses than hits as designers fell a little short when they were thinking fashion and technology, which doesn’t just mean robots and space-age, so as you can probably guess there was a lot of silver. Rather than exploring the idea of wearable technology, it seemed that the red carpet was split in two, haute couture man-made beauties and machine-inspired, in
If I said to you which fashion houses are the go-to red carpet designers – would Prada be one of them?

After a number of award seasons with Jennifer being the Oscar favourite, 2015 hasn’t really been the same without her on the red carpet, granted I haven’t always thought she wore the right thing, but no matter what she always brought drama and fun to the crazy world of the red carpet, and I have missed that, so
Normally for me it is the autumn/winter campaigns that really brings the fashion alive, maybe I say that because for me the winter collections are what I love to see on the catwalk, but these five fashion houses are really making me love spring/summer with their incredible fashion ads. There is a stripped back feel to all the campaigns this season, I don’t mean that there isn’t as much money pouring into them or that they are less creative, just that the clothes are doing the talking rather than a celebrity face, well except Julia Roberts, who even appears in complete
