The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute ball is considered the premier New York City social event of the year. Fashion lovers anticipate the red carpet event. For the MET Gala 2015, Anna Wintour issued the dress code: “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

The Good:

Sarah Jessica Parker arrived on the arm of pal Andy Cohen. She wore a show-stopping Philip Treacy headpiece complete with long tassels, ribbony flames, and a load of red pom-poms and donned a dress she designed in collaboration with H&M Conscious. This attire proved that with the right (and big) accessory a simple black dress can be a red carpet winner!

It didn’t take long for this elegant gown that quickly sent the internet into a fury because of it’s resemblance to an omelette.

Nagutom ako, ha!

To be honest, for me, Rihanna killed it! She looks like an empress ready to conquer the world! The canary yellow robe by designer Gup Pei looked majestic on her!

  1. Your website is too complicated. huhu.. I already took the survey and I don’t really want to subscribe to something I really don’t know what i’m subscribing for. Also, I like the old site better in terms of lay out,design and typography. I hope this is not the final, FINAL site.
