Like any red blooded American woman my eyes were glued to the Met Gala Monday night. So, also like any red blooded American woman I must give my, never too humble opinion. I’m going to keep it positive and short…Rooney Mara, Rooney Mara, Rooney Mara! She was pure perfection, not too literally punk, every lady knows to hint at a theme, don’t be a caricature. Her Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci white lace, shoulder-riffic, feminine dress was the essence of edgy chic. Thank you to the Mara style camp. Photo taken by Kevin Mazur. Lessons of the night; don’t show up in one pattern from head to toe, exposed roots aren’t a style, and don’t be too literal…Miley C.
Every good Cali kid has owned at least one pair of chucks, my favs were purple with Power Puff Girl laces. Well, now thanx to a collaboration between Converse and the uber chic, Givenchy I never have to go back to Bubbles and Blossom adorned footwear. Richardo Tisci, Givenchy’s head designer, gave into his penchant for a gothic aesthetic with patent leather, leopard-printed, cross adorned, and generally tasty sneakers. The only down side is that they are only offered in Japan! I know, I know, but hopefully they will be offered to the rest of us soon.
I am having a Givenchy day. Their haute couture is exquisitely detailed…standing ovation for Riccardo.
