The Met Ball 2012: Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations

Today is the day!  Met Ball watchers be on the lookout. The Met’s Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition will be well attended by the glitteratti and we are all expecting the usual suspects to show up (Rachel Zoe, Heidi Klum, Donna Karen and the like).  Would it suprise you to know that Tim Tebow, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony are also expected to be in attendance.  I find it less than fashion worthy but interesting none the less.

In addition, for the first time many of us will be among the first to see what’s what even if it is only by streaming video. Vogue‘s William Norwich and Elettra Wiedemann will be hosting the video event and interviewing the arrivals. I am sure that you would love to see it too.  Check out all the fashion fallout at: http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2012/impossible-conversations/audio-and-video and let us know what you think.  Don’t forget to have your Twitter up so that you can #MetQuestions your questions. You can also follow us on Facebook for all the updates (https://www.facebook.com/FashionPressPass)

You can rest asured that we will bring you all the styling, the hair and the jewels we can capture.  See you on the red carpet.

Faith, Love, Hope & Fashion 04.19.12

In the office today listening to The Best of The 80’s and reliving great memories… oops! I think we just dated ourselves!  Anyway, here are a few great current looks inspired by some equally great old memories.

We love it so much that we think this layout will  become one of our staples. Enjoy!

From Our Closets: Red Hot Wardrobe

RED: dividing the daring from the dull!

We love what a hint of red can do to our closet. Something a little exciting to lift or spirits for the day.From Our Closets: Red Hot Wardrobe

Here’s To The Ladies Who Lunch…

I first became aware of Ms. Shearer while watching the original movie “The Women”.  My love affair with her and the actresses of her time has only grown since.  This board was styled for a contest but it has brought a great smile to my face and fueled three days of watching strong women hold their own.

Cheers ladies.

Inspiration Stylist-at-Large Feb 25, 2012

 We are really feeling the taupe, mint and mustard coloring of this layout.  Sneky layered out an outfit that any girl would love this spring. Girly-girl items are still working in our wardrobes and that green is the new neutral.  If it is not your usual color try adding it as a hit with a skinny belt or a removable ribbon pin.  It will give you the freshness without having a major commitment.

Lovely colours...

Spring Accessory Spring with Vera Bradley – 2012

I don’t know if it is the unusually warm weather here in NYC for winter 2012 or that we are just ready to be out of doors but we are loving the Vera Bradley Spring 2012 video. (The little girls are just too cute.)

The Inn on Mackinac as background is perfect for showing the new playful prints for Spring 2012.

  • Rosey Posies are just that. A playful mix in rose and pink hues with a ribbon of gold.
  • Island Blooms is a fresh pattern. Teal with the pop of white full bloom flowers and light lime leaves. In this patter we especially love the beach bag with the plastic insert and the oversized scarf.
  • Camella is a taupe, tan and grey pattern played out with a central leaf vine design on a black ground. The snap top clutch that the bride is carrying is perfect for ALMOST any occasion.
  • Ellie Blue is a clean combination of blue hues from deep to pale and a sunny yellow/creamy white detail. Included in the patter is a very playful lucky elephant. From diaper bag to iPad cover, this pattern is featured in the most styles.

This video is playful and great to watch. It makes me think back to a time when a tiny purse and a pair of shoes with little straps were all I ever wanted.  Hold on, I think that was yesterday…

If for no other reason, watch it to get you in the spring time frame of mind.
