The 2013 Met Costume Institute Ball: Hits

We could get into the atrocious politics, the end-of-culture-ness that having a Costume Institute Ball themed around punk entails. We could talk about how political punk icons like Joe Strummer and the dudes from Crass would be appalled by such a blatant cultural misappropriation. About how the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition at the Met actually created a replica of the fucking disgusting bathroom at long-dead punk club CBGBs (which has ironically been replaced by a John Varvatos clothing store). Or about how the attendees at last night’s Met Ball — despite their safety pin appliques, dyed hair, spiked heels and studs – had no clue about punk’s tenets, beyond the obvious and cliche aesthetic signposts.

We could talk about all of those things ad nauseum, because the misappropriation of punk — the turning of punk into little more than a fashion statement — is simply another symptom of how capitalist culture dilutes, chews up and swallows cultural movements and distills them into non-threatening, easily commodifiable shadows of their former selves. But hey, let’s just look at the clothes instead.

Who Wore It Best? The Perfect Print At “The Great Gatsby” Met Screening

Over the weekend, the Metropolitan Museum of Art set up a special screening of the new “Great Gatsby” movie. A ton of stars attended, likely in part because tonight is the Met Ball (this year’s theme: punk). We’ll have all the gowns and mis-applied safety pins for you tomorrow, but in the meantime, take a look at these five — from left to right: Kylie Minogue, Solange, Nanette Lepore, Rachael Taylor and Brad Goreski — and pick your favorite print or pattern!

Style Showdown: Which Look Do You Love Best On Carey Mulligan?

I’ve been counting down the days until “The Great Gatsby” hits theaters for the past, like, year and a half. Now that we’re getting down to the wire (one week!), I couldn’t possibly be more excited. Baz Luhrmann’s brand-new adaptation is already polarizing and nobody has even seen it yet, but if there’s one component that guarantees the film will be worth seeing, it’s the cast. There doesn’t exist a more perfect Gatsby in the world than Leonardo DiCaprio, and Carey Mulligan has the physical likeness of the iconic Daisy Buchanan down to a science. I’m a little concerned that Carey herself is too intelligent to convincingly play the “beautiful little fool” that is Daisy — but we’ll see.

So! Now that Carey is about to be everywhere promoting the flick, we’re paying extra-special attention to her sartorial pursuits. We already saw her looking gorgeous in red at the “Gatsby” New York premiere, but what about these past looks? They’re all very different, and Carey’s ability to pull off a variety of different styles and interesting shapes is crazy admirable … but which is your favorite? Get a closer look and vote after the jump! Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh: The “Great Gatsby” Premiere

This “Great Gatsby” movie’s been supposed to be coming out for, like, a year now, and I’m super happy it’s almost here, mostly so I can stop receiving PR pitches every five seconds about “Great Gatsby”-style or “Great Gatsby”-themed accessories, the vast majority of which are not at all related to anything Roaring ’20s in the slightest. That said, I’m very excited to see, you know, the actual “Great Gatsby” costumes, designed by Miuccia Prada and her team of worker bees.

And if the clothes worn at the New York premiere of the film are any indication, we have a lot to look forward to. Click through to see some of the best (and worst) on the red carpet…

Who Wore It Best: The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held this past Saturday. Traditionally meant to be a dinner held for members of the press covering the administration, of late, the annual dinner has morphed into a glamorous celeb-filled kind of thing. I mean, Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian went last year, guys! But seriously, the Correspondents’ Dinner is the one time of year that politicos and the press corps mingle and imbibe in a no-stress, yelling-free environment.

We’ve grouped the evening’s attendees based on the colors they wore — navy, green and red were all strong contenders along with basic black and white. And we want to know: Who do you think wore it best? Start voting after the jump! Keep reading »
