2010 Time 100 Gala – Taylor Swift In J.Mendel

Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift attended the Time 100 Gala in New York last night.

She went from white at the Met Gala to black at the Time Gala.

I do love her J. Mendel Fall 2010 mini dress with the abstract wave asymmetrical draping, but something’s missing.

I understand she would’ve wanted to look grown up at this event, but looking at Taylor without an embellishment or a sequin feels so alien.

I kid. I think she looks fantastic.

2010 Time 100 Gala – Lea Michele In Oscar de la Renta

Does anyone else see a young Catherine Zeta Jones?

That’s who I thought Lea Michele was for a split second when she walked the red carpet at the Time 100 Gala in New York last night.

The “Glee” actress is becoming quite a veteran on the red carpet.

She has the poise, the confidence and a mighty enviable collection of dresses to choose from.

On this occasion she opted for a stunning ivory Oscar de la Renta Spring 2004 gown.

The strapless gown is so buttery I bet it felt so luscious to touch.

I love the knotted bodice.

She carries this look so well.

I think she should be in contention for BDOTW.

Unlike Renee’s new do, I’m yet to fall in love with Lea’s bangs.

2010 Time 100 Gala – Donatella Versace In Versace

Say what you want about Donatella Versace but I LOVE HER.

She was smokin’ hot at the Time 100 Gala in New York last night, putting the teens on the red carpet to shame.

Had I been at this event I would have been tempted to bow or curtsy just to so respect to her fabulousity.

Once again she created a look perfect for her, taking small details from her Fall 2010 collection.

Her blue gown is amazing with the sexy side splits.

I want what Donatella is selling.  I want her dress now.

Natasha who?

Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World

I know many don’t share my love for Michelle Obama style choices, as many of you are still reeling over her wearing a cardigan to meet the Queen of England, but I did sigh with admiration when I saw her at this event.

The First Lady wore a simple black sleeveless Michael Kors gown, with a Peter Sorenon corset, accessorizing with multiple strands of necklaces, and simple diamond studs.

She wore her hair pulled back, her poise was authoritative, yet she’s so incredibly charming.

I curse the stand being in front of her, because I think the most interesting part of the dress is the corset around her waist, which gives her dress very a defined shape.

Oh Mrs O….*sighs*

Kate Hudson, one of Stella McCartney’s Met Gala Angels on Monday night, arrived wearing a sexy ivory Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2009 suit, consisting of a herringbone jacket, trousers and silk blouse.

Her look was complete with her hair tied back loosely, and gold Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toes.

I would’ve loved to have seen Kate rock this suit without the blouse, but it won’t have been appropriate for this particular occasion.

I wish to thank Liv Tyler for restoring my faith in this particular Stella McCartney Fall 2009 lace cut-out dress.

On the runway it was grey, and the illusion was too milky to be considered an illusion.

I love Liv’s black version, which she playful poses in showing of her Cartier ring.

Time 100 Honoree Stella McCartney, is quite possibly one of the coolest chicks on this planet.

She was of course head-to-toe in her own pieces consisting of a black cotton t-shirt, black lace embroidered skirt, organza shrug and black strappy platform sandals.

The shrug and skirt are so divine.

Diane Sawyer’s look oozes sophistication wearing a black off-the-shoulder top, with a ivory and black striped skirt.

Jimmy Fallon arrived with his gorgeous wife Nancy Juvonen.

She looked amazing wearing a Marchesa one shoulder navy gown, with a silver embellished asymmetrical neckline.

You may remember Georgina Chapman – the designer of this dress – wore it to the Metropolitan Opera last year.

Designer Vivienne Tam quite shamelessly, but harmlessly uses this event to promote her self designed HP Netbook.

The designer complimented the background, wearing a red embroidered dress from her Spring 2009 collection.

Claire Danes gave us the cold-shoulder with her black jersey dress, with cut-out shoulders.

M.I.A. was at this event, looking quite muted by her standards.

She wore the celebrity must have Alexander Wang suede and leather motorcycle jacket, under a Preen Line black dress. What…no sneakers???
