Met Gala announces 2017 theme: Comme des Garçons’s Rei Kawakubo

“Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past forty years,” said the Costume Institute’s curator in charge, Andrew Bolton. “By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.”

This is not only exciting but big, big news since Rei Kawakubo will be the first living designer to serve as the theme and inspiration of the Met Gala since Yves Saint Laurent. 

Vogue's Met Gala is fashion's biggest soiree bringing out an elite guest list of fashion designers and celebrities. Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams will cochair the event along with Anna Wintour of course. The Met Gala will take place on May 1, 2017. 

The Costume Institute exhibit will feature 120 looks from Comme des Garçons/Rei Kawakubo.

I don't subscribe to the selfie revolution, which is not to say that I never... I just don't that often. I'm certainly not of the narcissistic look at me I'm gonna tell you how to dress because I have more style than you

 blogger mindset. OR worse... look at my outfit, but it so I can make a commission!  I try my best to share and provide fun and interesting content on fashionado. SO today, I'm trying out something different. I want to appease my friends who keep asking me to talk about MY style. I've resisted, but here we go: In this faceless selfie, I'm pictured in last night's outfit to the GOCA Patron cocktail party at the Capital Grille in Dunwoody. I knew I wanted to wear a blazer since it was a cocktail party. I chose one of my old faves, a Givenchy camel color wool jacket which I've had forever. Fits great and keeps me warm! I love pattern. The shirt is from Express and of course, a pocket square is a must to complete any look! Silk. Orange. Century 21, NY. BTW, I did wear pants: Banana Republic, navy, with a subtle banker's stripe. Hey, have a great Saturday everyone!

Get into the Gap never felt better, literally. The iconic brand is returning to it's roots by simplifying the look AND feel of their clothing for Spring. [But that's a great thing!] 

You know that t-shirt we all have stashed in our dresser drawer, the one we've had for twenty years and feels like butter -- well, for Spring 2014, Gap'sLived-In" collection will make us all very happy... The name, 'lived-in' says it all. The cottons are softer than ever and Gap's approach 'feels' very authentic by letting go of "trends" and focusing on the purity of the brand that we've all come to love. Vintage shirts, boyfriend shirts, skinny jeans, super-soft tees and lots of lived-in feeling denim.

In an innovative and clever partnership with Vogue Magazine, Gap has created a fabric logo for their pages! More about that in a sec... let's have a preview of Gap's Lived-In collection:

"I'm thrilled that Vogue is the magazine to debut Gap's cutting-edge spring initiative, which uses the page in the magazine to allow the reader to experience the fabric,"

elaborates Susan Plagemann, VP and Publisher of Vogue.

"One more way Gap and Vogue are leading innovation in fashion."   

You can see and feel the Gap ad in the March issue of Vogue. And, like me, you can sport the Lived-In look this Spring!

CFDA: The Fashion Fund - Vogue on Ovation

My latest tv obsession...

I can't get enough of The Fashion Fund, an original series on Ovation. They are four episodes in, so catch up quickly!! [I did.]

Many of us know of the Council of Fashion Designers of America,

CFDA

and

everyone

knows

VOGUE

Magazine... In this series, we are educated and entertained at that same fabulous time about The Fashion Fund which was created by

Anna Wintour

and Vogue to help young designers move forward. The series lets us see this process from the inside out. It's pretty incredible.

The Fashion Fund on Ovation is better than any fashion reality show on TV. Trust me! AND for those of you as obsessed and intrigued about all things Anna Wintour, as am I, this series is a MUST. The Goddess is all over it and she smiles. A lot!

For the Fashion Cares fans and supporters out there, Jeffrey Fashion Cares' own Jeffrey Kalinsky is a judge on the CFDA panel. We get to see a lot of him too. He's kind of adorable.

Tune in!

It's next to impossible to select my favorite Vogue Magazine cover because they're ALL super-amazing. How could they not be when artists like Dali and famed photogs like Irving Penn and Annie Leibovitz are involved. The Postcards from Vogue: 100 Iconic Covers by Vogue giftbox that I received as a welcome to the Vogue Blogger Network sits proudly on my coffee table for everyone to enjoy. The early years through the 1950's are probably my faves. *Check out some of the covers below... Also, you can get your own giftbox HERE.
