Last Night at the Met Ball
As you can see, I am super motivated with blogging this week. I promise, however, that this will be my last blog post involving celebrities… for this week.
If you follow me on Facebook you might have seen my comment about the MetBall (aka the Oscars of the East Coast) which took place last night in New York City. The event is literally a parade of couture gowns, you know the gowns you look at and just, WISH. This year, the event was streamed live on Vogue, Amazon and MetMuseum.org and it gave bloggers and fashion enthusiasts an unobstructed view of the arrival of the fashion elite and their muses. The quality of the pictures from the feed was kind of low grade at times and we overheard some seriously colorful commentary by the photographers (shout out to all the red carpet photographers. I wouldn’t want that job. It involves a lot of yelling, apparently) but it gave us the opportunity to see who wore what in real time (almost as if we were there) so we don’t have to wait for the edited reels of the entertainment shows to see all of last nights glamour. Since I had that privilege, I would like to share a few images and also two sources where you can find additional photos from last nights’ event.
Although I saw a few tweets from people claiming that they were underwhelmed by the gowns, Beyonce and our girl Rihanna brought the drama with their dresses. Yep, Bey totally showed her ass last night and you know what, although I’ve been bitching lately about how women need to cover themselves up, I am not even mad at her for letting it hang out. She looks stunning! Interesting though, that married and now new mom Beyonce went for this sexy glam look and don’t give a flying [insert expletive here] bad gyal RiRi went for a more demure look. Check out both ladies (and also Solange, Paula Patton, Lala Anthony, Kanye West, Rashida Jones and more) on the Young Black and Fabulous.
Rosario Dawson also killed it in this leather dress as seen on Styleite.com as did January Jones, Rooney Mara, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Ginnifer Goodwin in her STUNNING orange/salmon/ (what color is that?) dress.
What is your favorite look as seen on both theybf and styleite?
