Now this is how you bring drama to the Met Gala. Rihanna nailed the theme as did Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker. Kerry Washington in Prada and Solange in Giles were outstanding and exactly what this event called for.

2015 Met Gala

SS_MET_GALA_2015

The Met gala red carpet has kept me thoroughly entertained for the better part of this evening. This years theme China Through the Looking Glass was not entirely represented as well as it could have been, though there were still plenty of beautiful looks. Cara Delevingne managed to merge fashion wearing Stella McCartney, and the Chinese theme with a gorgeous body painted design. Jennifer Lopez’s dragon inspired Versace gown paired with her ultra glowing complexion and red and bronze blush was quite stunning, and some what on theme. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked amazing, her makeup and hair were completely flawless. Kim Kardashian let her Cavalli dress be the focus wearing neutral makeup and a neat ponytail. Amal Clooney always serves dramatic glamour perfectly. Then there was Mrs. Carter…she worked the red carpet in sheer beaded Givenchy. I loved the blonde super high side ponytail, and winged liner.

Eco Fashion Week

eco_fashion_week_vancouver

Sunday evening I attended the BC launch of H&M’s exclusive conscious collection as part of Eco Fashion Week. The collection of eco friendly garments are made completely from sustainable materials including organic cotton and recycled polyester. I fell in love with more than one piece. The designs are fashion forward, the materials used are ethically sourced yet they feel soft and very wearable. Most importantly the factories and suppliers that are used to make all the garments, meet the standard for proper working conditions for employees.
