Hey Guys! How has your week been? We had an exciting Monday here in NYC, dozens of major celebs were in town to attend the most glamorous event of the year: The Met Ball. It's a fundraiser event for the costume institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but really it's just an excuse for celebs from movies, modeling and music to get dressed to the nines and rub elbows with the richest of the New York City rich. The gowns at this event are often over the top and extreme, here are a few examples of what has been worn over the years:
I didn't get an invite this year (I guess it got lost in the mail? - hahahaha!) so I decided to do a little dressing up and come up with my own Met Gala inspired looks. Check them out!
What do you think, would I have made the best dressed list? The Met Ball is all about pushing the envelope but somehow still being elegant and classy so your guess is as good as mine! Playing dress up sure was fun though, maybe I'll throw on one of these looks when I go out this weekend. I think the lesson is: don't wait to get invited to a ball to treat yourself like a princess!
Hey Everyone, happy Monday! Were you excited for the Emmy Awards last night? You bet I was! I just love awards shows so much. The glitz! The glamour! The throwback to Old Hollywood! I can't get enough. I'm sure you all remember how excited I was to attend the VMA Awards (seen here: http://www.applesthemule.com/1/category/vmas/1.html) last month so you must be wondering what I wore to watch the Emmys. Well, I won't make you wait any longer, here it is:
Yep, there I am, decked out to the nines in a tank top and shorts. Hahaha! It is super fun going to awards shows but I secretly like this a little better. It's a little more comfy, you know what I mean? And yes, that is a beer and a chocolate bar you see in the photo. I like to indulge a little every now and again. Unfortunately I'm just a small little mule and that was a regular sized beer so I don't think I have to spell out what happened. But luckily Junes took a photo so you can see for yourself:
Yep, I passed out and missed most of the show. Oopsies! Oh well, I saw the best part anyway, which is, of course, the red carpet. Here are a few of my favorite gowns of the night. Do you agree with my choices? If not, drop me a line & tell me who your favorites were. Have a wonderful week!
