Not only the british actress is the face of Chanel Mademoiselle, she also represents Chanel in this movie about the time Coco first shop in Deauville, France.

Punk: Chaos to Couture Part III

Models, Models Everywhere. There wouldn't be a Met Gala without the models putting fashion on another level, with the gods.

Doutzen Kroes has sexy written all over her. In Theyskens’ Theory, punk went sexy all the way.
Joan Smalls wears sheer lace dress and is accompanied by Tom Ford.

Punk: Chaos to Couture Part II

Here comes the worst of the night.

Ginnifer Goodwin, this girl always surprises you on the red carpet and really likes to take fashion to another level that only she can pull it on the red carpet, but this look is just wrong. Raccoon  alert. I get that the theme is Punk and if you take it to literally you end up looking everything except fashionable. Wearing Tory Burch with a black tulle hem, the dress looked really good on her but then you stare at her from head to toe and the eyes make it all look really bad.

Madonna what the were you thinking?! Don't you have mirrors in you house, so you can see what you look like when you leave the house?! I have to admit, it take courage to leave the house looking like a grandmother using a really bad wig and some clothes from the time she was a size 2. It's just sad when people can't admit the age they have and making it look glamourous. She was wearing Givenchy.

Punk: Chaos to Couture Part I

This days all eyes were looking at the celebrities walking the Red Carpet in Met Gala this year.

First of all, I think it's important to know what the Met Ball really means, cause this event is not just celebrities in couture. The Costume Institute Gala is a ball that celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. Since 1948 the event has been an annual affair at the Met. Hosted by Vogue, this event is considered by fashion experts the best red carpet event in the fashion world.
Now that we ALL know what the Met Gala means, let me show you some of my favourite looks of the night and of course we cannot forget the worst dresses. Oh, and the theme of the party was PUNK
One of my favourite look was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Gucci, I have a girl crush on her, a really big one. From the makeup to the accessories, Rosie looked flawless.

What Do I Wear In Bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, Of Course

If you are in Paris there is an exhibit about the most famous parfum in the World, Chanel No. 5. In Palais de Tokyo you can see the amazing evolution of this fragrance throughout the years.
Since 1921, women and men alike have been infatuated by the intense smell and elegance that Chanel No. 5 represents. From Catherine Deneuve to Brad Pitt, this perfume had an extensive number of ambassadors.
Enter Gabrielle Chanel's World through this exhibit designed by Jean-Louis Froment.

Even Heroes Need High Heels to Safe the World

Julian Hakes in known for designing this weird but inspiring shoes, the Mojito shoe. When you first see it you ask your self "How on Earth am I using this as a shoe??" but let me tell you I tried them on the last time I was in Dubai for my holidays and they look amazing ;) 

So you now that Iron Man 3 is in cinemas and to celebrate this, Julian Hakes created a Mojito shoe that even Iron Man himself could wear and save the world or just give it as a present to her lovely girlfriend, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan of this iconic shoes, donated a signed pair of Mojitos shoes to help raise money for 'Stand Up For Cancer UK' last year)

Even has LED light resembling the 'ARC-reactor' that powers Iron Man's suit.

Julian Hakes is a fan of Tony Stark. 

Would you wear this shoe or are like me, I would love to buy so I could look at them?

Bee's Knees

Let the jazz in, the Roaring Twenties are here to stay!

And all thanks to the MAJOR Vogue cover with the beautiful Carey Mulligan! By now you all know Mulligan is playing Daisy in the new version of The Great Gatsby, where she makes a disappointing character (you know what I mean if you read the book) looking quite interesting just by adding gorgeous clothes and accessories to the mix. Mulligan and Prada dresses look so good together it hurts my eyes! Dressing her in Prada completes the character, showing us that Daisy Buchanan is in fact a selfish, shallow woman although Fitzgerald associates her with innocence. Completed by Tiffany's & Co. jewels is impossible for you not to fall in love with her.
Now enjoy the show and tell us what you think.

This headpiece is the same one you can see in the poster!
