The 2013 Met Gala

the met gala

I love, love, loooove The MET Gala.  Why is it different from any other celebrity party?  Well, for one, the fashion is always way more avant garde and this year the theme was “PUNK: From Chaos to Couture.”  YES.  While there were some “WTF was she thinking” outfits, I’m completely in love with these three looks:

1. Blake Lively: Blake, who claims that she doesn’t have a stylist, worked with Gucci Première to design this amazing dress that kind of makes me think of Black Swan.  Her makeup in word word?  Flawless.  Her makeup artist, Elaine Offers, used NARS on Blake.  “It starts with Blake’s signature approach: luminous beautiful skin,” said Offers about the look she created for Blake. “We created a serious eye shape as a nod to the punk theme by building on a smoky eye and winging it outward. With the diaphanous layers of her skirt and a light lip, it comes together as being both glamorous and edgy.”

2. Anne Hathaway: To be perfectly honest, I was so not impressed with Anne’s look from the Oscars but guys, she totally killed it in this Valentino dress, complete with Debbie Harry-inspired platinum blonde hair.  Anne’s makeup also looks totally flawless and, according to her makeup artist, Adam Bereuchaud, he used Laura Mercier on the actress.  Specifcally, Breuchaud gave a subtle nod to the event’s punk theme by creating a bold, “electric blue” smoky eye to complement Anne’s flawless, porcelain skin.

3. Gwen Stefani: To no surprise, I clearly love what my girl Gwen wore to the gala (a Maison Martin Margiela cut-out gown and Fred Leighton jewels).  I can’t think of anyone more appropriate than the punk rock princess herself.

Bonus content: Jeannine has the scoop on a few of the hottest manis from the night and THIS, just for shits and giggles. I’m obsessed with Nicole Richie’s hair.


Get The Look: Alexa Chung

Get the look Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung looked absolutely stunning at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival – 8th Annual CHANEL Artists Dinner.  I’m loving her radiant (yet very pale) skin, with just a hint of lip and eye.  Here’s how to get the look:

Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation SPF 12-Hour Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Alexa has great skin but her skin actually looked FLAWLESS at this event…and I don’t say that lightly.  Tarte’s foundation gives great coverage AND SPF 15 for us fair ladies, like Alexa and myself.

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in “Bare Pink”: A beautiful mauve-pink shade, with lots of moisture, is key here.

NARS Blush in “Orgasm”: It’s the go-to blush for almost every makeup artist, and for a good reason.  It looks good on almost everyone and you don’t end up looking like a clown.

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner in “Perversion”: Alexa doesn’t have a ton of eye makeup on but you can clearly see a beautiful line of liquid eyeliner.  I love Urban Decay’s version since it’s so easy to apply and doesn’t smudge or streak.
