Who Impressed Me at the Costume Institute Gala 2009?

....Not many.

To be fair, I think that this year's theme,"Model as Muse", was a wee bit nebulus to interpret. However, that really can't be the reason so many people bored me to tears. It is called a gala for a REASON. Let us go all-out, be crazy, take RISKS, celebrate!

Kate Moss at the MEt

Co-host Kate Moss looked divine, in my opinion. Although many slated her for the gold turban and looking "beat in the face", I think that her styling choices were inspired & reminiscent of Diana Vreeland & Little Edie. It was a little strange & unexpected, but her attitude worked it just right.


My absolute favorite- Russian catwalk queen Sasha Pivovarova. No one can touch that ensemble, not even La Moss. I mean- that coat!!! As a burgeoning feather fetishist, I am coveting hardcore. The choice of the tiara with the messy hair makes the outfit all the more madcap and perfect...

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.

"Give Them What They Never Knew They Wanted!"


So quoth DIANA VREELAND, my end-all, be-all maverick muse fairy godmother. Seriously, are the above pictures not the most inspiring & uplifting photos you have seen in yonks?


It is like she is commanding you with one of her genius "Why don't you...." -isms

"Why don't you tie black tulle bows round your wrists?"
....because why the hell not?!

Fabulous Fille: Kelly Wearstler


Interior Decorator, author, tv judge, former Playmate... Kelly Wearstler is effing rad!

A true glamourous eccentric to the core; Kelly crimps & curls her hair with reckless abandon, piles on the jewelry & thinks nothing of donning clothes deemed 'out there'.


Kelly is featured in Simon Doonan's amazing and inspirational tome, Eccentric Glamour. Her parting words?
"I'd like to be gift wrapped for eternity."
