7. Charlize Theron

Like Lawrence, Charlize also wore a white Dior dress which reminds me of the White dress explosion from last year's ceremony. She still pulled if off though and I'm loving her in this dress!

3. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart was in a very beautiful Reem Acra gown who walked the red carpet in crutches. The actress apparently had her foot cut on glass two days before the big O. With or without the crutches, Kristen is rocking this look effortlessly!

NUMERO UNO – ULTIMATE BEST DRESSED!

JESSICA CHASTAIN

She may have lost the big prize to Jennifer Lawrence but she clearly outstaged the Best Actress winner at the red carpet. Jessica was looking oh-so-good in a sequined Armani Prive nude gown. This girl's flawless! She's definitely my ultimate best dressed!

I wish I could fly to New York now to witness the Alexander McQueen:Savage Beauty Exhibition but since I can’t – I’ll just satisfy myself with all the images from the net. EK. It sucks,really. Lee is one of my favorite designers and now that he’s gone, I feel that I need to really see this one!!!!

The Exhibit started last May and will run until August 7, 2011. If I could magically teleport or  become a “Jumper,” I’d definitely go right there at this very moment! I’m not sure why the Metropolitan Museum of Art isn’t extending it to coincide with the Fashion Week. I guess I’ll just wait until I get the chance to intern with Sarah Burton – haha.

Remembering La McQueen

Today marks the first death anniversary of the great Alexander McQueen.

May You Rest In Peace Lee. We Love You.

In Focus: Alexander McQueen

A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss.  Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!
