When you say Charles James dresses, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? I was little familiar with the grand designer’s work up until Anna Wintour announced the theme of the 2014 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala theme ‘ Charles James: Beyond Fashion’. As the D-day approached, I was looking more and more into the couturier’s archives, trying to get as much of his fashion as possible.
So the first thing I imagine when I think of a Charles James dress, is a glamorous ballgown with a dramatic sculptured, ample skirt, very pretentious occasions and Haute ladies (do tell me your sartorial vision of Charles James style in the comments, I can’t wait to read them all!)

There’s one thing people love more than admiring the Red Carpet fashion, and that’s the actual celebrities walking it! Coupling these two, literally, let’s take tonight’s theme seriously and look ‘Beyond Fashion’ with world’s most watched and talked about couples right now, right here on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2014 Gala Red Carpet!
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
It was hard to pick a favorite, but the moment these two lovebirds walked the Red Carpet, it was obvious that their magic star would outshine the others. By far! The energy, the fun, there’s nothing standing in the way of this couple’s reigning over the world with their magnetism! They make a youthful, unconventional but fashionable couple on the 2014 Met Gala Red Carpet.

The equivalent of the Oscars Red Carpet, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Met Gala is happening as I write these lines. Naturally, all fashion people’s eyes were on the New York establishment’s surroundings, hoping to catch a glimpse at the very high couture and the very high profile celebrities in attendance.
One of my favorite, year after year, Sarah Jessica Parker did not disappoint at the 2014 Met Gala either! Following the exhibition’s theme ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’, she took couture literally and she showed up wearing an Oscar de la Renta black & white gown with the designer’s signature on the train of the dress!

Easy to notice, not always easy to identify or to find, some of the items our favorite stars are wearing on the big screen will be reviewed here week after week – in the measure of possible.
Today it’s about ‘Transcendence’ and about a handful of clothes and accessories carefully supervised by the film’s costume department head, George L. Little, and worn by Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany and Rebecca Hall. George L. Little has previously designed the costumes for Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker or Max Payne, none of which excel in fashion but in everyday wardrobe utility.

I’m convinced you’ve heard all about Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr both releasing cover songs this week! But have you heard about Keira Knightley releasing her own music? sort of. In a movie. With Adam Levine and Ceelo Greene though! And Mark Ruffallo! (the movie is called Begin Again and looks like the perfect rom-com with a hint of rock’n roll)
Gisele is here, Gisele is there, Gisele is everywhere these day! But so is Miranda Kerr… So before getting to Keira’s singing, let’s see what else do these two supermodels have in common?

I know it’s a special time, and along with my warm ‘Happy Easter!’ wishes, hoping you’re getting plenty of love, peace and smiles, I’d like to take this opportunity and bring awareness to a very special campaign: Born Free Africa!
Fashion is giving a helping hand in raising awareness (and, hopefully, more) about preventing the mother-to-baby HIV transmission! Designers (23 women designers who are also mothers), models (women models who are also mothers) and more fashion luminaries (fashion magazines editors, retailers) have joined the Born Free Africa movement: will you?

After a day of research, I finally tracked down the watches worn by Pierce Brosnan in one of his latest movies, A Long Way Down: Jaeger LeCoultre and Ponerai are the two brands of his two watches he’s seen wearing!
I recently discovered that I’m not the only one who enjoys movies not just for the cinematic thrills of the story and the enthralling beauty of the directorial perspective but also because I like tracking down and identifying bits and pieces of the character’s wardrobe. Every week, I’ll do my best to serve you yet another Film Fashion episode and today it’s about ‘A Long Way Down’ and Pierce Brosnan!
