Everyone’s buzzing about the 2015 Met Gala – it IS one of the biggest fashion events of the year, after all – but we can’t forget one of the event’s biggest hits with Taylor Swift’s Oscar de la Renta dress last May.
Wow. I mean… let’s just take a moment. The train. Jesus. It’s like a wedding dress. Is it rose? Carnation pink? Whatever it is, it’s utterly gorgeous.
Life isn’t all diamonds and Rosé… but it should be. At least, that’s how Lisa Vanderpump and I feel. Lisa’s resume isn’t limited to restauranteur and RHOBH unprecedented-slap recipient; she’s also a lovely interior decorator, as demonstrated by SUR, Pump and Villa Blanca.
I have a major girl-crush on Lisa, so when I found out she had a housewares line, I got giddier than Giggy in a new pair of bedazzled suspenders.
I fell in love with the entire line, but a few distinct pieces really bewitched me: the Bristol candles (pictured right), with hammered aluminum, really had an elegant look.
If you watched the Oscars and saw any of the afterparty fashion, you noticed a trend. Our gals were, uh, naked. And good for them, because they can pull it off better than I can – but the cutout sheer panels that took over the red carpet left little to the imagination and zero room for undies. And that’s an even scarier thought for many of us than showing our bodies.
Still, I’ve experimented with a little commando-ness here lately (mostly for utility purposes – underwear is not optimal post-spray tan), and it’s very freeing. I wondered: could I take this idea to a real outfit? Like one you wear outside, at night?
