The Olsen twins rocked the Met Gala on Monday night. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley wore vintage Chanel, and were one a just a few people that really followed the actual theme for the night that was based on designer Charles James. I know you don’t necessarily have to follow the theme, but I do wish more of the men wore white tie (tuxedo with tails and a top hat) like the invitation instructed, and I think a lot of the ladies could have worn more ball gowns.
Of all the times to show up in a big poofy ball gown, this was it. I did however like Cara Delevigne’s pants situation. Charles James’ garments always tripped me out because I could never figure out how they were constructed. He was the genius that influenced Dior’s New Look.

Raf Simons, formally of Jil Sander, will be replacing John Galliano at Dior. After many months of speculation, many say that the official announcement will come from the couture house on Wednesday. Many can rejoice because Raf Simons seems to be a great fit for the house of Dior. His last collection for Jil Sander for the Fall 12 season was a massive hit with critics, and looks to be a precursor to what Simons may design for Dior now that he is on board. I wonder what is going to happen to Bill Gaytten. He was Galliano’s lackluster assistant that took over after Galliano was fired from Dior. Photos from Style.com.
John Galliano has been suspended from Dior because he got arrested last night for verbally assaulting a couple with anti-semetic remarks.
I will update you as soon as I know more. Meanwhile check out the latest from Elle UK.
OMG!!! H&M will open a US webstore at the end of 2011. I can’t wait. What does this mean for those of you who, like myself, live hours away from the nearest H&M? Well… it means empty wallets. I wonder if we will be able to buy the designer collaborations online. That would be amazing because the nearest H&M is three hours away from me. I wish they would get online sooner.
