2010 Costume Institute Gala

Last night, fashion and celebrities converged in one of the most stylish events of the year (aside from the Oscars, of course). The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City not only featured a red carpet with the who's who of Hollywood, but the yearly spring event opened the Met's exhibition "Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion". For sure, there were some on the red carpet that embodied style and high glamour, and then there were those that did not bring it so much. 

Here are some of my faves: 

There were so many to choose from! For the most part, many of the gowns looked Old Hollywood..which make me an instant fan. Then, there some that I really didn't like:

Why does Tina Fey do this to us?!

Not a fan..

I love January Jones, but this does not work for me. Next time, please leave the gloves and eyeshadow at home!

This looks like a Stepford wife's apron...

Act like a snake and shed this horrible outfit..please!

My mom used to have curtains like these. 

Her outfit is fine..but does anyone else find this picture hilarious?? :)

Are headbands back?

I remember wearing headbands. In elementary school. The other day, a girl in my class walked in with the cutest headband..ever. It was dainty, cute and stylish all at the same time. Now granted, how you wear your hair with a headband I am sure has a lot to do with whether or not you can pull it off. After checking out this new trend, I discovered one thing: headbands are most stylish with an asymmetrical design. There are plenty of hairstyles you can wear with headbands...like these:

You can find stylish headbands everywhere! Here are a couple of places that have them:



My summer must-have

Since the Spring runway shows, I have been seeing that the 70s are making a comeback this summer. One super cute and totally comfy look that I am dying to wear are rompers. It seems like I am not the only one, seeing as how tons of celebs are wearing them too. Since it is not quite hot enough here to get out the summer clothes, I am waiting a few more weeks before I stock up on rompers and summer dresses. Here are some cute styles I have my eye on: 

Juicy Couture

Jessica Simpson


Victoria's Secret

 Victoria's Secret

Some of these are really cute to wear everyday, but I love that they are easy to throw on at the pool!
