MET Ball 2013 Punks Out

The Costume Institute has gone all out thanks to new halls donated by the incredible Tisch family. And what better way to celebrate than with the anti fashion fashion, PUNK.

I even in the late 80s had a punk moment for Halloween where I wore a plastic bag and dark eye makeup and travelled my neighborhood carrying a pillow case filled with candy. But PUNK isn’t a joke or a Halloween costume, its the breakout from stereotypes and a reflection of the ultimate angst. It can be hot and sexy and dark or honestly a little scary with multiple piercings and anger infliction/ mutilation/ defamation.

For me the hottest looks this season that didn’t go “costume” where JLo, Beyonce, Sienna Miller, Miley Cyrus, and Gisele Bundchen.

The Met is my sanctuary and filled with inspiration and history. Blog about what you love and hate, and make opinions like crazy
On your way out, check out the exhibit and walk through the sculpture garden.

Thank you Andrew Bolton and Harold Koda for your incredible vision and anthropological look at fashion.

Anna Sui – Fashion Week

“I wanna be Keith Richards,” Anna Sui once told me in an interview. From that moment on, I became obsessed with her. Yes, she a killer researcher, Yes, she knows a load about fashion, and yes, her shoes, fragrance, and makeup line are smokin’ hot. And, yes she has hung out with Marc Jacobs since they were in their twenties, and yes, her closet in her apartment is dreamy. She is all of those things, and her Spring 2011 line was sexy, and 70s smokin hot. Honestly, I hate going to her shows, for all I want to wear now are those dresses. I’m still tan, why do I have to wait for layers of chiffon and cowboy boots paired with pale prints. Someone in “fashion hell” is trying to torture me. A lineup of the clothes before the models put them on, and adorable asian girls with mini buns on their heads backstage. I love you Anna, your voice in fashion is so loud and clear. We all love you from Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Baby Jane Holzer, Kelly Osborne, and me.

Thats a whole lotta love!

Simon Spurr

He’s been spotted working with Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Yves Saint Laurent, until Simon Spurr decided it was time to create his own line – SPURR.

The City of London, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and (Klein, Lauren, and Slimane, under whom  Spurr worked) are among
the smokin’ hot 34-year-old’s influences. 
 
Since the brand’s 2006 debut, Spurr has been honored as one of the ‘Best New Menswear Designers in America’ by GQ and the CFDA, and DNR,  gave Spurr the ‘Editor’s Choice Award for Best New Label’ .  His leather fall 10 mens pea coats and suits are amazing. Actually all of his collections that I checked out at Blue and Cream,  looked hot. 
 
I know just the man who should walk with me wearing Spurrs designs, do you?

American Woman – Fashioning A National Identity

The Met and Gap are celebrating the most beautiful American women in the world. From the Gibson girl of the late 1800s to the rockin’ flapper girl of the 20s, the American woman has evolved. She wore a corset swimming, she votes, she’s every skin color, she’s smart, and she’s sexy.

Check out the exhibit and don’t forget to pick up my book AMERICAN STYLE in the bookshop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
