Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Who’s Taking Who???

Diana kruger prada Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Whos Taking Who??? %tagEach year after the Oscars and the award season has finished I have to admit I go through a little lull when it comes to red carpet appearances, premieres are fine but they just don’t have the glamour of a big award show, which is why I am always pleased when May comes around as it has two big fashion events – the Cannes Film Festival and the Met Gala.

This coming Monday, May 6, the very best in fashion will be strutting their stuff in celebration of Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, and I love that the red carpet event is kind of a mash-up of the Oscars and fashion week, where designers showcase their very best gowns with most specially created for the event, on some of the biggest stars. It always seems to bring glamour and drama and some of the best looks of the year.

Last year was a Prada affair thanks to Miuccia Prada being co-chair, Diane Kruger in that gorgeous purple gown is still one of my favourite Met Gala looks, well this year is bound to be all about Givenchy as Riccardo Tisci is on the panel and his co-chair is Rooney Mara.

As well as enjoying the red carpet, I love the anticipation and lead-up to the event, guessing what people will wear, and who’s dressing who, which means for the week before I am addicted to WWD, the NY Post and the New York Times – they always have the best scoops.

So want to know the latest rumours? Well I have put down some of my favs below:

  • Tommy Hilfiger has announced that his table will be filled with a rather odd mix including Zooey Deschanel, Nicki Minaj, Lily Aldridge, Thalia Mottola, Debbie Harry and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill – I can’t imagine Nicki Minaj in TH!
  • Jennifer Lopez will be a Michael Kors girl for the night – I can’t wait to see this
  • Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow is going with Valentino – I wonder if her look will top her sexy Prada mini from last year?
  • There are no surprises regarding who Dior is taking – Oscar winning-actress Jennifer Lawrence and French beauty Marion Cotillard – I am just hoping for something customised
  • One of my most interesting reports is that Alexander Wang is designing a custom Balenciaga look for Julianne Moore – that’s going to be amazing
  • Sienna Miller is apparently attending with Burberry, well no surprise as she is rumoured to be the label’s new face
  • Diane von Furstenberg is taking Emma Roberts
  • Jessica Alba is set to attend with Tory Burch
  • Topshop is getting in on the action again with Jaime King, plus the retailer is taking Julianne Hough
  • Elizabeth Banks is going with Brian Atwood – so we can be assured her shoes will be hot

No word on whether anyone will be wearing Donna Karan, Prada, Versace, Alexander McQueen, or Elie Saab, or even if Nina Dobrev, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger or Sarah Jessica Parker will be attending – I have all my fingers and toes crossed!!!

If I hear anything I will be sure to keep you updated via my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Who are you excited about seeing and who do you want to attend?

Les Misérables: Anne Hathaway In Givenchy

Anne Hathaway givenchy Les Misérables: Anne Hathaway In Givenchy %tagWho: Actress Anne Hathaway

Where: At the Les Misérables World Premiere in London

Wearing: A white off-the-shoulder beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, featuring draped sleeves, dramatic neckline and a plunging open back

Verdict: Well after I got over the shock of seeing Anne Hathaway sporting such a dramatic couture gown – seriously what a contrast to yesterdays blog post about her fun cover shoot with Glamour, I was quietly pleased.

I am sure for some they won’t like this Givenchy gown on Anne, but I love that she went for something daring, but I do wonder how much convincing Rachel Zoe her stylist had to do. But come whether you like this gown on Anne you have to admit this look deserved to be showed off.

What I love is that her pixie hair cut that she has been getting to grips with over the past few months really works with this dress, it allows the gown with its off-the-shoulder and backless detailing really shine, and I am so pleased that she went for bright ruby lips – completes her movie starlet look.

This is sure to divide critics - but what do you think love or hate Anne’s dramatic look?

AW12 Campaign: The Intense Givenchy Rave

AW12Givenchy4 AW12 Campaign: The Intense Givenchy Rave %tag

Oooh I do love something a little different, and this autumn/winter 2012 ad campaign from Givenchy certainly is a little different. Styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott this is a stunning campaign aptly named the ‘Rave’.

Starring Tisci’s favs Stella Tennant and Joan Smalls, as well as Daniela Braga, Stef Van Der Laan, Rodrigo Braga, Simone Nobili and Jarrod Scott, the models get their dance on to spectacular results.

What I love most about this campaign has to be the intensity of the images, from the stormy skies to the urban setting and the striking androgynous styling. This is definitely going to be one of the most memorable ad campaigns of the season, and I can’t wait to see it in print.

Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy

Resort2013Givenchy2 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

Scarf prints that we saw in D&G’s last ever collection and that are embracing the high street for spring/summer 2012 aren’t going anywhere as Riccardo Tisci brought his gypsy vibe to the streets of New York for his resort collection. The gorgeous collection is filled with the striking scarf motifs of paisley printed patchworks on silk satin, twill and jersey, mixed with geometric blocks in colours of black, white and red, creating divine eye-catching statement pieces.

It seems that the modern nomadic travelling woman is all about mixing and matching and likes a clean-cut architectural silhouette, I think this is the best ‘urban couture’ I have ever seen. I loved the mix of the long-flowing belted eveningwear dresses, which featured long-sleeves slit all the way to the shoulders, creating a cape-like effect, which continued on the tops and outerwear, alongside slouchy billowing sarouel pants that were teamed with Givenchy’s signature tailored pieces such as the boxy jacket and shirts.

The collection was complemented with strong accessories from boxy shaped handbags to small clutches, and the footwear featured everything from open-toe high gladiator boots to high-heeled loafers and ankle-strap sandals that I am sure will be gracing the red carpet soon.

I also loved the large geometric belts, the sculptural rings, and of course the New York street-style shoot, how cute is that fluffy dog!!!Resort2013Givenchy1 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple – Gisele and Tom Brady

gisele2 Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple   Gisele and Tom Brady %tag

There were a couple of trends at last night’s Met Gala, high shine shimmery gowns, pops of oranges and lemons, feathered beauties and then there were the classic black gowns from the likes of Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Liv Tyler, and Mary-Kate Olsen, but one that stood out the most had to be Gisele’s Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci.

She has a head start on most on the red carpet with her model looks, incredibly long legs, which she worked in an Angelina Jolie kind of way, and then she has a hunky husband to accompany her, how is this fair???

There weren’t that many thigh-high splits last night, maybe they knew that they couldn’t compete with Gisele, but she really does look amazing in this sparkly gown.

Superbowl: Madonna In Givenchy Haute Couture

madonnagivenchy8 Superbowl: Madonna In Givenchy Haute Couture %tag

Madonna really knows how to make an entrance, I absolutely loved her halftime show at the Super Bowl XLVI match between the New York Giants and The Patriots last night. From the word go with her coming on flanked by dancers dressed as gladiators, to the fab performance of ‘Vogue’ – and her amazing wardrobe created exclusively for her by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci – this was a spectacular 12 minute set.

As well as ‘Vogue’, Madonna also delved into her massive archive and sang some of her other hits including ‘Music’ and ‘Like a Prayer’, as well as her new song ‘Give Me All Your Lurvin’, which I have to say isn’t growing on me – yet.

Some people on Twitter were saying that she looked tired and didn’t move great – come on people let’s not forget she is 53-years-old – I thought she worked the performance really well – especially loved her shuffling with LMFAO.

My favourite of the Givenchy Haute Couture looks by Riccardo Tisci had to be the hand-embroidered gold cape that Madonna wore for the performance opener, which was worn over a black mini dress accessories with a hand-studded belt and an exquisite Philip Treacy headpiece.

I also adored this gorgeous embellished black coat with sequins and micro pearls for her divine performance of ‘Like A Prayer’.

SAG Awards: Zoe Saldana In Givenchy Haute Couture

zoesaldanagivenchy SAG Awards: Zoe Saldana In Givenchy Haute Couture %tag

Who: Actress Zoe Saldana

Where: At the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A white silk organza Givenchy Haute Couture gown with a drop-waist and embroidered crystals from the spring/summer 2012 collection, finished off with Tiffany’s Novo diamond drop earrings

Verdict: Ooh I loved Riccardo Tisci’s Haute Couture collection when it showed last week, and I love it even more that a piece has already hit the red carpet, and I am so glad that Zoe Saldana wore it as she is a knock out in this gown. Winter whites were definitely a trend at last night’s award ceremony and this shimmering gown was one of my favourites.

There is an elegance about this gown that is just perfection, I am so glad that it was teamed with minimal jewellery and that Zoe wore her hair up – she really is a classic beauty in this dress.
