I have resisted doing a fashion recaps of events likes this and the Oscars because so many fashion spots cover it I doubt that I could add anything to the conversation. Upon some thinking, I realized that as a fashionista, talking about fashion is what I do and I don't have to go all in depth, but I can add my opinion as a student of fashion. I also need to keep on top of all things fashion as well. I have gotten a bit lazy and some life happenings have interfered, but I can do better in my fashion postings, especially since I have for some reason gotten a renewed passion for fashion.
I will be going to the Met in the coming weeks to get a really good look at this exhibit. I'm pretty sure there will be a rush after the gala last night, so I will wait until the excitement dies down and the crowds have thinned. I made the mistake of waiting for the last weekend to see Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty and had to wait in line for hours and only get to spend but a few minutes viewing the exhibit. I learned my lesson!
This is an image of some models in Charles James gowns. I do love a great ballgown every now and then. My favorite gown for this event is noted below!

Kim Kardashian in a Lanvin. Vast improvement from last year! The gown last year was...*shudder*...I didn't care she was pregnant, there were better gowns for pregnant women as Catherine Zeta Jones and Nathalie Portman have shown as they were pregnant win they won thier Oscars and they looked lovely!

Monica Bellucci. I don't which designer gown she is wearing, but I love that it is red on the red carpet! Love the cape as well. Only thing that would make this picture better is if the guy wasn't in it! Whats up with those aweful gloves on his hands?!?!
Ivanka Trump in Oscar de la Renta. Granted this looks like upholstery fabric, but I give it a thumbs up because, I like her!
