The princesses must stay home. The choice of the best dressed of the MET 2013 part of the dress code. It was not the night to find a new Elie Saab. Though the night was much more docile than expected, remained Punk.

We are in a couché paper anniversary; W Magazine is now 40 years old. The four protagonists of the four covers have characterized so well that I doubt any of them are recognizable. Keira Knightley showing in the cover in a platinum blonde is the most normal of all, but it is quite shocking to see Keira like that.

Scarett Johansson has many facets of but this one is no joke. Bicolor hair alla Cruella de Vill, earrings and makeup so marked.  Continue reading

On The Steps of The MET

The most charming of the MET gala is that, in essence, is a ball. One of those in which couples get together still months to its conclusion, and are kept secret so as not to hurt anyone. They arrive in the car together,taking pictures of them on the way and let them something a little more crazy than normally they would dare. Color rose in her hair, fluorine dresses, back to the breathtaking outfit of one who walks a few steps behind.

Let’s start with our review of some of the more representative outfits and celebrities: Continue reading !  Continue reading

‘S Wonderful

Review of the Academy Awards,

by Print and Pattern.

Here are the best bets in hand fashion of the actresses that candidate or not to a statuette, shone with their own light …. although not all of them.

Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton, wearing a coral colored dress and peplum silhouette. Williams competed for the Oscar as best leading actress with the film My week with Marilyn, but lost against Meryl Streep, but not on the red carpet. Although this was  not one of her best appearances, I stay with Chanel she took last year, she was incredible.

Rooney Mara with a white design dressed by Givenchy. Mara was nominated to the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in the film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Ford, stunning in white.

Angelina Jolie, with an awesome Versace dress.

Jessica Chastain, nominated for best supporting actress for The Help with a blackstrapless dress with gold embroidery of Alexander McQueen.

Milla Jovovich, spectacular asymmetrical neckline dress by Elie Saab.
Bérénice Bejo with a mint green Elie Saab design, jewels and Swarovski clutch. also nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
Shailene Woodley, Valentino Haute Couture.
Emma Stone, Giambattista Valli, with a design that puts the accent on the neck with a tie. very pretty but I was a bit disappointed, I expected more from her, this looks like a design that Nicole Kidman took several years ago.
Now let’s get the worst of the night, no doubt Penelope Cruz, Meryl Streep and (I say it sadly) Natalie Portman.  Penelope Cruz wears Armani Privé design in pearl gray, looking like a grandmother. Then, Meryl Streep with a gold dress by Lanvin, looking like a statuette, it seems that brought her luck because she get her third statuette, this time for his role in The Iron Lady. Finally, Natalie Portman with a 1954 vintage design of red and strapless signed by Christian Dior Haute Couture, which is not bad but …. a little bit bored.

Black or White

Rooney Mara and Lana del Rey: night and day

Both are fashion icons and trend generators wherever they go, however are opposite ways of understanding fashion, so much so that their colors are antagonistic to each other. We will talk about Rooney Mara and Lana del Rey, and his passion for black and white respectively.
