The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City and marks the grand opening of its annual fashion exhibit. Celebrating this year’s theme “China, Through The Looking Glass”, it seems to be one of the most challenging yet. See below who honored China’s heritage and its present culture on the red carpet best.

This year’s award to best dressed of the night goes to:

I am always looking forward to seeing Sarah Jessica Parker‘s outfit because she has never let us down in pulling off the best looks. And let’s just say the headpiece combined with her H&M dress is divine.

At the Tom Ford F/W 2015 Show in L.A.

Tom Ford Show FW2015 Cover

Last week, I flew back to Los Angeles for a week filled with amazing experiences, events and more. Friday night before the Oscars, there was no hotter ticket in town than the Tom Ford show and I was completely excited to attend. There was so much “show” around the actual show as Hollywood’s A-list came to join the designer for his first fashion runway presentation ever held on the West Coast. The catwalk was drenched in real white rose petals that also fell from the ceiling during the show.

TF FW15

I’m showing to a room full of entertainers,” Ford said postshow. “I’d better give them some showmanship. I thought, It never snows in Los Angeles. Let’s make it snow rose petals.

The clothes were different from his previous collections. More subtle and less obviously sexy, a very interesting vibe. I truly adored the looks reminiscent of the ’70s. Bohemian patchwork, denim, gorgeous fringes, gowns and lots of fur.

Enjoy all my photos of this amazing night, see who was there and which celeb wore the same dress like me.

Gucci dressed Beyoncé for her Mrs Carter show, Lady Gaga had the most amazing wardrobe for her Born This Way Ball tour created by Giorgio Armani and now it is Roberto Cavalli‘s turn to provide Miley Cyrus with the most dazzling costumes for her upcoming ‘The Bangerz World Tour’ that will commence on Feb. 14 in Vancouver. Here is a sneak preview:

As the singer has announced she will include animals in her show, she couldn’t have gone for a better designer to create her outfits than the king of animal prints, Roberto Cavalli. Even that I am not the biggest Miley fan, I really like her looks for the show.

Simone Camille Bags – A Gypset Statement


Simone Harouche, L.A.-born stylist and globetrotter, is the mastermind behind Hollywood`s new must-have accessory label: Simone Camille. The colourful unique patchwork bags are handmade and comprised of vintage textiles that come from all over the world. She acquired a one-of-a-kind material collection during her years of travelling as a wardrobe stylist that inspired her to make a bohemian carryall for herself.

98413_fr_lThe hype started in 2009 after Nicole Richie was so taken by Simone`s creation and wanted one for herself. The rest is handbag history.

 

€892.-/$1155.-

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The amazing hippie bags with beautiful embroideries and embellishments like mirrors, beads and light-catching coins have been spotted on many celeb shoulders. Available from today at www.net-a-porter.com retailing between $1155.- – $1885.-. Quite expensive for something that you might find on the markets in Ibiza, but believe me the details and craftsmanship are worth every penny.

Jeggings

I Heart my Jeggings

Last year, when I was convinced that skinny jeans couldn`t get any tighter, designers came up with a match made in heaven: The combination of leggings and jeans, so called jeggings. The new term is already wait-listed to receive an entry into the Oxford English Dictionary. From me, they have already received an entry into my closet.

They are comfortable like leggings and stylish like skinny jeans. Moreover, you never look like coming out of the gym which can happen with a leggings look. It is such a great trend that works so well for young Mums because of their extreme flattering but cosy fit. Hollywood stars have been spotted all over in the new must-haves.

Goldsign

Adriano Goldschmied, who has been in the denim business since many years, could be called the “godfather of the jeggings”. His label Gold Sign was one of the first ones producing them in a super elastic and soft material. Those ones are amazing!

Jeggings2

Celebs like Victoria Beckham (Victoria Beckham Denim) or the Olsen Twins (The Row)  included jeggings in their own collections and have been parading them everywhere.

Jeggings4

The jeggings are a trend that should definitely remain for a long time and it looks like they will. Here are some pics from the F/W 2010/11 lookbook by Superfine. Applications seem to be on the rise. Update yourself!

Jeggings, hat and jewelry by H&M, tank top Balmain, shoes Chloé and Fendi Peekaboo bag..

If you are not sure yet, I will recommend to find yourself a fab pair at H&M. I got myself one and the fit is really great. The fabric could be softer, but for CHF 29.90 (wow!) I don`t want to complain! Go with the trend, there is no doubt you will be making a fierce statement in those!

LoL, Sandra
