 I wonder, do boys anticipate the Super Bowl the way we anticipate the Met Gala?? I’d say that compared to last year, I was missing the color at this Met Gala! Where were the gasp-inducing gowns? I felt that things were a bit understated and there were a few too many short dresses for my liking. There are so many other events to go short and casual to, why not dial it up for this one? I did however fall for the makeup! Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth in particular stunned in their dark lips and perfectly shaped brows. Even though we’re coming up on summer, I’m dying to try a dark lipstick like Mac’s Rebel or Tarte’s Zen.
Who were your Met Gala favorites?

MET GALA:: Best & Not So Best Dressed

4 May

Can you believe Ginnifer Goodwin’s dress is by Topshop? One of my favs and undoubtedly one of the cheapest, that never happens! I would have to say Liv Tyler was my number one for the night in Givenchy Couture (yellow is such an underrated color!) And no one does Glamazon better than Gisele, killing it in McQueen (look at her waist! and that’s not even photoshopped – ugh)

Street style darlings MKA Olsen and Alexa Chung all exhibited that unique personal style we love them for. Never ones to fit into the mold! I actually loved the cut of Ashley’s Dior gown, very flattering on top, even with the poofy sleeves! I loved the contrast of MK’s red Vintage Givenchy dress with her green jewels – we’re all too afraid to wear Christmas colors 364 days of the year, thanks for showing us how MK! And Alexa, props for being consistent in your signature short shift frock, glitzed up in sequins by Christopher Kane.

If you’re planning a prom and you’re going for the bombshell look, these women will show you how it’s done. Clearly long wavy locks are key, along with a drapey form-fitting gown in nude tones & a goddess-like glow (Kate’s is obviously natural. Fingers crossed I look this great pregnant!)

I would have preferred to see Brooklyn Decker’s hair in a clean, slicked back ‘do to really take her hot pink Michael Kors dress up a notch in terms of chicness (instead of the soccer mom bob). Michelle Monaghan’s long-sleeved pink gown was very similar, but unfortunately the fabric of her gown didn’t photograph quite as well, I’m sure it was beautiful in person! Like I said, yellow is so underrated! Zoe looks smashing in her canary column.

I try to keep things positive here on FUJI FILES, so I titled the last selection “Not So Best Dressed.” But c’mon Jessica Zohr, did you really need fringe on your dress, shoes, AND face? And Christina Hendricks, you’re so much hotter than this! But for the most part, I thought everyone looked drop dead gorgeous, just as they should!
Oh yea, hi loves. I’m back! With 4 new gigs of RAM and 500 new gigs of memory! Ok enough techtalk. And what better welcome back party than the Costume Institute Gala? What would you wear to the Met Gala???
My little break from the blog allowed me to take a step back and do a little brainstorming and admin. You may notice a few changes in the coming days… looking forward to hearing what you all think!
