Margot Robbie In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Margot robbie in prada met gala 2014

Margot Robbie was at the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ star wore a Prada custom designed powder blue silk organza tee-length dress. The transparent top, which overlays a satin bralette, featured a high ruffle neckline and geometric mirror embroidery. The skirt is enriched with large black plexi plates.

She complemented the look with grey satin ankle strap pumps and a black satin clutch with a jeweled closure, all by Prada.

Robbie styled her brunette hair in a sleek updo and as always, her makeup was flawless.

Now, obviously she took a fashion risk. And I will say that if you’re going to take a fashion risk, you take it with Prada. But no, I just can’t get myself to make sense of that dress. Sorry!

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Lupita Nyong’o In Prada - 2014 Met Gala

Lupita Nyong’o marched to the beat of her own (and Miuccia Prada’s) fashion drum as she hit the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted on Monday (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

I couldn’t wait to see what the actress, style-setter and Miu Miu Spring 2014 campaign model would be wearing to the Met’s fashion extravaganza. She certainly left me speechless in her custom Prada concoction.

In one of the riskiest (to put it mildly), more excessively theatrical sartorial moves of the evening, Lupita paraded out the emerald-green netted dress, assembled with glass beads, crystals and chandelier drops and enhanced with cascades of feathers down the sides and at the bottom hem.

Worn over a brown slip dress, this design had precious little in common with the refined, classic looks in the Charles James exhibit. But it’s hard to deny that she is not rocking it like a pro.

Forget the gala, Lupita’s dress was the party, and the fun only continued with her matching emerald headband, military green suede sandals embellished with large stones and a green raso clutch, all by Prada.

Her hair even seemed to be highlighted with a shade of deep plum to embolden the look further—as if it needed it.

I am still waiting for the shock to wear off. This statement will definitely go down in Met Ball history. What do you make of it?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 2

Here is a quick menswear roundup.

Adam Levine: The musician joined Keira Knightley on Saturday (April 26) for the premiere of ‘Being Again’. Looking very dapper Adam wore a Prada Uomo navy two-button suit with a white dress shirt and striped tie.

David Gandy: There aren’t many word of the devilishly handsome model who joined a host of starlets on the red carpet for the Fendi store opening in London on Thursday (May 1). Just a swift beating of the beats and silent admiration that one so handsome can always look so well put together.

Adam Lambert: Colourwise, Adam left both Adam Levine and David Gandy in the shade, standing out on the red carpet at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards wearing a green Kris Van Assche suit and black Saint Laurent shirt. My only wish for this look is that it fitted better. Love the styling however, especially those gold mirrored glasses from MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm.

Prada And Harrods Present Pradasphere

Prada And Harrods Present Pradasphere5The Pradasphere has officially landed, and a party was in order to welcome the exhibition at Harrods that traces Prada’s multivalent obsessions—from fashion and accessories to art, architecture, cinema, sport and beyond. Of course, a host of London lovelies—all in some measure of Prada or Miu Miu—were out in force to celebrate.

Bonnie Wright: The British actress spiked up her blue and white colour-block Prada frock with a leather motorcycle jacket, cobalt-embellished ankle-strap sandals and a sunny yellow mini-bag.

Annabelle Wallis: Sweeping back her blonde locks, Annabelle fully embraced the quirkier spirit of Prada in her bold floral-print, button-down shirt, worn belted with black trousers, grass-green pumps and an aqua-and-black patterned handbag. Somehow she pulled it off.

Samantha Barks
: Also in blue, the actress was adorable in a Prada cerulean, white and black striped, off-the-shoulder dress with a full pleated skirt, paired with black ankle-strap pumps and an embroidered blue and cream bag. This look had girly flair without being too saccharine.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emma Stone In Prada, Solange Knowles In Christopher Kane & David Beckham In Ralph Lauren Black Label

BDOTW 28 April

There were many great looks this week, but Emma Stone wearing Prada was the runaway leader with 49% of the votes.

I was totally swept away by Solange Knowles’ yellow and white Christopher Kane look. Not only for the lovely sunshine hue and hot-pink lip combo, but also for her interesting choice of accessories.

When it came to menswear we were in total agreement: David Beckham in Ralph Lauren Black Label.

Handsomeness aside, the former soccer star looked very dapper in his well-cut three-piece suit.
