Best Dressed at The 2017 MET GALA

I have not written a “best dressed red carpet” post in months. I used to feature them regularly years ago, but I lost interest in writing about them. But I came across some amazing looks from The MET GALA 2017 red carpet, and I was blown away by the beautiful looks. The celebrities went all out with the dresses this year. Thumbs up to their stylists!

Here are my best looks from The MET GALA 2017 –

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian looked very simple and chic in a stunning white Vivienne Westwood dress. I am quite surprised she showed up looking this elegant and simple. I guess she is still recovering from the media backlash from her butt issue. The off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood Couture gown is a great choice for Kim Kardashian in this time, she slayed it!

Lupita Nyong’o

The lovely Lupita Nyong’o went bright and bold in a coral organza chiffon Prada gown with hand-cut organza flowers at its strapless neckline. She nailed it in this dress. Coral is definitely her colour. Her makeup is also on point too.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner looked amazing in this stunning La Perla Haute Couture dress. I love everything about this look. Her dress, makeup and hair are spot on! She was definitely one of the best dressed women at The MET GALA 2017.

Kate Hudson

I adore this look. Kate Hudson looked amazing in this white asymmetric shoulder Stella McCartney gown with matching platinum tresses. I really like this look. I think she looked beautiful on the red carpet.

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes played in this off-the-shoulder look from Zac Posen. I love her hair and makeup too. She looked so beautiful.

Gisele Bundchen

Gisele Bundchen killed it in this long-sleeve silver Stella McCartney gown. This outfit ticked all the style boxes for me.

Kendall Jenner vs Jennifer Lopez in Balmain

Hey peeps. Long time no “Who wore it better” post right? Well the series is back with a vengeance this year, so fashion and style lovers should keep their eyes open.I promise the posts would be worth reading.

Kendall Jenner and Jennifer Lopez battle it out in this stunning sheer jumpsuit from Balmain‘s spring 2016 collection, and I am loving it.

Kendall Jenner walked the runway in this fierce look at the Balmain show at Paris Fashion week while Jennifer Lopez rocked hers to her 47th birthday in Las Vegas. Who do you think wore it better? My money is on Lopez and I will tell you why.

Jenner ruined her look with the belt and choker. This Balmain jumpsuit is already doing all the talking, any accessories should be minimal. But I guess Kendall Jenner did not get that memo, and instead went all out with her accessories. It looks too much, I am struggling to see the beauty of the jumpsuit.

Jennifer Lopez looks good in her jumpsuit. I can see the beauty of the piece, and it looks amazing next to her gold skin. Her bodyshape also stands out in this Balmain Jumpsuit. I love it on her, and I think she slayed it!

Now I won’t wear this piece because I think it is super revealing, so not for me. But I do appreciate amazing pieces on “Only the Brave” like these women right here, and that is what this fashion series is about. Appreciting stylish pieces on men and women, and deciding on who wore it better.

What are your thoughts? Who do you think wore this sheer Balmain jumpsuit better? Kendall Jenner or Jennifer Lopez?

Please sound off in the comment section below, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and commenting as always. Have a beautiful day.

 

Iris Apfel Lands New Ad Campaign at 94

I love reading inspirational stories, they motivate me to aim high and keep chasing my dreams. They keep me going on those difficult days, when things are not going as planned. Iris Apfel’s story is so inspiring, the fact that this ageless style icon is still working in the fashion industry is unreal, her story keeps me going.

 

Iris Apfel, the 94-year-old flamboyant fashionista is the busiest campaign model for this spring season. She is even busier than Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid put together, and it is not looking like she is going to retire anytime soon. You would think a woman who has achieved so much in the fashion industry would be relaxing at her age, but not Iris Apfel. She is a very different kind of woman. She is a the definition of ACTIVE and she is not chilling for now.

 

“Oh my god, I love being busy, I think it keeps me alive. I’m probably the busiest person you ever heard of. I’m busy to the point of insanity.”

 

Iris Apfel is the new face of Blue Illusion, and she features in Blue Illusions’s Spring 2016 ad campaign (and accompanying video below), she also helped style the shoot and welcomed the photo crew inside her magnificent New York apartment:

“All of the accessories in the campaign were mine. I accessorized everything,” she tells PeopleStyle. “I have a very big collection. I’ve been collecting since I was 11 years old. I’m 94 now, so do the arithmetic. It’s a lot of stuff.”

 

 

Iris credits her love of fashion and accessories to her mother:

“My mother worshiped at the altar of the accessory and she taught me that they were extremely transformative. You could have one basic black dress and if you had a group of accessories and you had some creativity, you could make 20 outfits. Change them around. And I learned a lot from that.”

Which is one reasons why she fell in love with Blue Illusion’s designs:

“I thought they have a wonderful product and I’m always interested in clothes that are architectural and suitable for people of all ages,” she shares. “That’s something I really champion and I think they do a very good job on all those fronts.”

Iris Apfel is also working with Kate Spade for the second year in a row on a campaign, and various other fashion projects. Her career inspires me, I find her so intriguing. I can’t believe she is still working, and showing no signs of stopping at the age of 94 years. When majority of us would have stopped working 30 years ago.

What do you think of Iris Apfel? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.
