Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior @ ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony
the details on this Christian Dior haute couture gown are stunning
My @loefflerrandall graduation gift to myself. Well worth the 45 minute wait for their sample sale.
After three days of non stop studying and work, I finally had enough down time to go to the traveling Bluth Banana Stand!! Today was its last day in New York before the stand heads to Los Angeles for the premiere. There was also a never nude meet up going on next to the stand, but it’s so warm today that the large group of people wearing denim cut offs wasn’t that weird. I didn’t get to see any cast members, but the frozen banana was actually really good!

From last night: pretty flowers snapped in the West Village
In honor of seeing Punk: Chaos to Couture: My version of punk: tulle skirt cut from floor length to knee length. This is actually the one piece I own that I consistently receive complements when I wear it. And of course it’s from Forever 21 of all places! I bought it a few years ago, somewhat impulsively (as all F21 purchases are).
Heads up! @everlane is getting into shoes this June. $90! (at The NoMad Hotel)
I’ve been on the hunt for high quality but simple leather sandals ever since my topshop ones tragically broke after one wear last year.
Part 2: some of the guards were super friendly and let us take pictures!! However the last two were not, so I couldn’t get pictures of these amazing paint splattered Dior gowns. But I did get the famous Elizabeth Hurley Versace dress and of course, the McQueen paint splattered dress. But I think my favorite look was actually a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci harem pant and peplum jacket (seen in part 1). I love the shape and structure of the jacket, and for me the studs and embellishments are very thoughtfully placed but also innovative. Usually they’re one the shoulders or the lapels, but I felt this was a fresh take on a punk staple.
Part 1: thanks to the College Group at the Met, I got to see this year’s costume exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture, after hours as well as attend a panel discussion with the designer Thom Browne and journalist Cintra Wilson. According to the exhibit’s curator, Andrew Bolton, it was Browne’s FW 12 collection that was the inspiration for this year’s theme. I really only know Thom Browne for his tailoring, so I was intrigued to see how his pieces fit in with the more obvious punks like Maison Martin Margiela, Gareth Pugh or Givenchy. As usual, the exhibit is quite the experience—they’ve even recreated the bathroom from CBGB, graffiti included! And I loved the headpieces on the mannequins. It’s not as show stopping as McQueen from 2011, but definitely worth a visit.
Long love McQueen. (at The Metropolitan Museum of Art)
