Met Costume Institute Gala

Every May the Glitterati converge on the Metropolitan Museum of Art to benefit and celebrate the museum’s Costume Institute. The Who’s Who of fashion, entertainment and design all stalk the red carpet. Designers attend with their muses, dressing them in elaborate and sometimes over the top, trend setting creations.

It’s got to be one of the hottest tickets of the year in New York, and all of the fun and festivities took place this past Monday night. Can you believe my invite got lost in the mail again??

Everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker, Maggie Gyllenhaal,”Girls” star Lena Dunham, Beyonce, Sienna Miller, Nicki Minaj and many other stars and starlets alike all gathered to turn the 5th avenue shrine to art into a mecca for fashion and all that is fabulous.

Every year the gala focuses around a different theme and this year it is, PUNK: Chaos to Couture and it will be on exhibit from May 9th – August 14, 2013 (

Stars went all out to pay homage to punk style, but one of the standouts was Sarah Jessica Parker. SJP wore a jeweled Mohawk headpiece by the London milliner Philip Treacy ( and a suite of 19th century diamond jewelry from the eponymous upper eastside estate jeweler Fred Leighton (

I’ve been out of commission for the past few days. My pup Julio passed away earlier in the week and  that’s why this blog is so late. He was a great little guy and I’m going to miss him everyday.

The Envelope Please


As our favorite celebs got ready for last night’s Golden Globes, making last minute adjustments to their outfits and deciding which jewels & accessories would either, best compliment their dress (wear rubies with red? blah), make them look thinner (GIANT sparkly earrings near the face, yes that old trick to bring the eye, up, up and away from those trouble spots), younger (REALLY hunky date so no one even looks at you!!), you have to wonder what some of them were really thinking.

So, I came up with a few categories of my own and the winners. I know everyone is on the edge of their seat, so…..drumroll please…….

In the category of ” SO BOOOORING, WHY’D YOU EVEN COME” – The award goes to Marion Cotillard. No earrings! No necklace!  Outrage! And it looked like she was wearing a bath towel.  As far as I’m concerned Anne Hathaway comes in a close second. I know, elegant, simple, demure, blah, blah. Oh I’m sorry, think I dozed off for a minute. With that super short hair and white dress she needed either a major necklace or statement earrings. Something to scream GIRL!!!!!!

Our next category is “WTF?????” – This one is a definite tie, between Zooey Deschanel , a Pearl choker and studs, REALLY? I think you forgot the cardigan and Stacy Keibler, cheapo looking earrings of long dangling chains and blah hair and makeup.

In the “THAT’S RIGHT I’M A BADASS” category – There are three stars I liked. Tina Fey, with her dangling spiky diamond star earrings. Julianne Hough, with her edgy, insect inspired jewelry from Daniella Villegas and Sienna Miller who rocked a couple of studs and a hoop from Jennifer Meyer, all on one ear. I’m a huge fan of a giant diamond chandelier, but it was nice to see something different on the red carpet.

And speaking of huge diamond chandeliers, I had to include my favorite category “BIG GIRL JEWELRY” (as in I’m a grown up and know how to wear shit) – Soooo many giant statement earrings I loved in this category, Julianne Moore, Julie Bowen, Selma Hayek, Megan Fox. But, my favorites we’re Debra Messing with her absolutely GIGANTIC Indian style, probably foilbacked diamond earrings (that worked back to her stacks and stacks of indian bracelets) and Taylor Swift’s sparkly, plummy brown Lorraine Schwartz triple stone drops. Best necklace in this category has to go to Jessica Alba, who wore M-A-J-O-R bling from Harry Winston.
