This year’s Met Gala theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, and since so many of the celebs in attendance nailed it, I couldn’t simply post my fave looks and be done with it. This time, I chose to bring you not only my fave looks, but also the runners-up, and the headscratchers all in one post.
Let’s start with my faves. I loved the ornate Dolce and Gabbana dress on Katy Perry, the grand headpiece on SJP, the elegant Margiela on Gwen Stefani, the stunning, but decidedly NOT punk Givenchy gown on Rooney Mara, and an orange moomoo-like goodness on Ashley Olsen. None of those looks screamed punk to me, but I found these dresses to be interesting, fashion-forward, and gorgeous too. Well, SJP’s panty-flashing Giles gown wasn’t exactly my type, but if anyone could’ve pulled it off it’s her.
Apart from my top 5, I enjoyed so many other looks! From Giovanna Battaglia gilded head-to-toe goodness, to Solange Knowles looking lovely in a Kenzo gown that was perhaps a tad too casual for the Met, but beautiful nonetheless, to Emma Watson in a very sexy Prabal Gurung…there was no shortage of fashion porn at this year’s gala. Some celebs decided to don simple LBDs to the event, which in my opinion was a total waste (I’m looking at you, Michelle Williams), but others made up for it with punk hair (Miley Cyrus), and studs galore (looking gorgeous, Sienna Miller!).
All in all, I loved this year’s fashion offerings. I hate wading through a million photos of boring outfits, and this year there weren’t too many.
So now it’s your turn! Which celebs brought their A-game to the 2013 Costume Institute Gala, and which crashed and burned? Share your opinions in the comments!

What is it about Coachella that makes me drool with envy? Is it the promise of hot desert sun, great bands, and fun fashion? That must be it.
This past weekend, a ton of celebs headed down to Indio, California, and brought their A-game, when it came to style. Katy Perry strutted around wearing a revealing Dolce and Gabbana two-piece, and a whimsical purse. Alexa Chung stuck to her signature style by donning a black and white Wednesday Addams mini dress, while Kate Bosworth looked amazing in a scalloped tank and shorts. My favourite Hollywood couple (Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson) also made an appearance, looking cute and stylish as always, as did Solange, in a pretty pink floral skirt.

There are two Coachella weekends this year, so today’s celeb style round-up will focus on Weekend #1. I must say, comparing to the past few festivals, this year’s celeb sightings left me somewhat disappointed. The look on Pacey’s face above pretty much sums up my feelings about this year’s looks – one huge “meh”.
Apart from a few cute outfits (courtesy of Diane Kruger, Dree Hemingway, and Whitney Port), most celeb looks from Coachella 2012 were either too boring, too crazy, or plain stupid…looking. I must admit, I got zero summer outfit inspiration from this year’s Coachella-attending celebs. Zero. But perhaps you’ll feel otherwise.
Maybe the below looks from Katy Perry, Kate Bosworth, Lea Michelle, and Lauren Conrad will tickle your fancy? Yes? No? Maybe? Share in the comments.

The Met’s Costume Institute Gala is a ball. It is also a candy-shop-like heaven for the fashion lovers, what with beautiful gowns and crème de la crème of celeb world. But when said celebs pick some disastrous outfits to wear on such an important night, it makes me wonder if they did that to get noticed and to stand out from the crowd.
Well, in Katy Perry’s case, one does not need to wonder. A romantic white dress that lights up in the dark screams for attention…and that necklace is all wrong for the neckline of the dress. In my humble opinion, Katy Perry is the fail of the night.
A few other notables are Vera Farmiga in an ill-fitted baby blue Sophie Theallet for Gap fit for a saloon, Malin Ackerman in a not-so-flattering black-and-white dress, complete with blah hair, Elizabeth Banks in a fashion-forward feathered Gucci number that she overaccessorized bringing it from cool to trying-too-hard territory, and last but not least – Carey Mulligan in Miu Miu – cute dress, wrong occasion (plus the color washes out her pretty face).
What do you think about these dresses? Are they the worst of the night or do you have a soft spot for some of them? Sound off in the comments!

What better occasion to summer-style-watch than at a festival set in the middle of the desert? Year after year, young and hip celebs flock to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to soak up the sun, the booze, and the music. My fave styles this year come courtesy of Whitney Port, in her practical shoes, colorful summery outfits, and not-so-fussy hairstyles. Scroll down for more celebrity photos and let me know which celeb outfit is your favorite…or least favorite.
