It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nasty–is upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s theme–Punk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year. Expect one or two unforgettable looks, lots of playing it safe, some real style, some real glamour and, hopefully, a whole lot of beautiful disasters.
So, per usual, we’ll be updating live throughout the red carpet. Come back and refresh often–expect new looks here every few minutes!
Let’s do this. More
Karlie Kloss’ Chanel handbag is full of cookies. More
Why are people hating on Karlie Kloss‘s short hair? She is beautiful. She looks excellent. She could be entirely bald and she would look like some kind of earth angel. However, people seem very displeased about the bob she’s sporting in this Victoria’s Secret video: More
Human bodies don’t look like this–and we don’t mean that in that asinine “real women have curves” way; we mean holy shit, human bodies aren’t usually indented where the ass has been ritualistically pruned away by a retoucher. More
Is that a ringing bell I hear? Looks like an angel just got her wings! More
We groaned audibly when we saw the headline. More
Supermodel Karlie Kloss is becoming a vegan baker because… because why the fuck not? More
The 2013 Grammy Awards took place last night and few Grammys ceremonies have ever presented us with so many genuinely god awful dresses. While looking through our colleague Samantha’s fantastic live coverage of the red carpet last night, we realized two things: 1) Sam is a lot more generous than us and 2) there’s no fucking way anyone can make a reasonable best dressed list out of this caravan of nightmares.
So, we decided to reframe our usual awards ceremony post-mortem best dressed list as, simply, The Least Offensive Dressed. Let’s try our best. More
The amfAR Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week went down last night and, naturally, a bunch of famous fashion folks showed up (and Lindsay Lohan). Considering the attendees, we were surprised to find that the red carpet looks were almost remarkably bad. Let’s take a tour. More
Today’s New York Times has an article about “The Karlie,” a “trend” that was born, as many things are, after 20-year-old model Karlie Kloss jokingly referred to her new haircut as such and a bunch of people took her seriously. Yours truly was even said to find the haircut “inspiring” because I once wrote “now that I see it on Karlie, I have the sudden feeling that it would make me look like a goddess.” The full paragraph, if you recall, was a bit different in tone than what that single sentence might lead you to believe: More
Michelle Obama celebrated her 49th birthday in style today by debuting a brand new hairstyle via Twitter. As you can see, that hairstyle includes bangs! More
Hurricane Sandy was undeniably bad. It left thousands without food, water or power, and knocked a bunch of people on their asses who were already clinging to a precarious existence. Thankfully, the good folks at Vogue are here to pretty up all that unsightly damage with top models in thousand dollar ball gowns. No, really! Vogue‘s February issue features a beautifully shot Annie Leibovitz editorial consisting of well-dressed young women hanging out with various first responders. I’m glad Vogue helped raise money for hurricane relief, but does that give them license to do something this gross? Or maybe I’m wrong, and expensive fashion and poverty stricken disaster areas are just two great tastes that taste great together. How do you feel? More
Last night at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, many famous people gathered for a good cause: the 12.12.12 Concert, which benefited victims of Hurricane Sandy. Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, the Who, Alicia Keys and more performed (Keys–apparently without irony–prompted concert-goers to raise their cellphones in the air).
Here’s what attendees wore on the red carpet. More
Happy Thanksgiving eve, everyone. Here’s a bunch of models eating food because we’re lazy and unoriginal. More
