Who Wore What :: Met Gala 2010

The Met Gala reawakened my fashion senses tonight.

Formally known as the Costume Institute Gala Benefit, the event saw what seemed like every celebrity known to man streaming through The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Trend-wise, the red carpet screamed nude and ethereal. Black seemed totally unpopular, while bold colors like that of Thandie Newton’s gown were striking.

The event celebrates the opening of the ‘American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity’ exhibition at the Museum.

Trend Alert :: The Black and White of Celebrity Style

Seems like recently there have been no gray areas in celebrity style.

While trendspotting, I found a number of stars leaning toward chic black-and-white looks, from floral to geometric.

Fashion publishing goddess, Anna Wintour, has also been snapped in the trending look. All the more reason to sit up and pay attention, no?

Brooke Shields in “That Hat”

GREY GOOSE(R) VODKA BROOKE SHIELDS

It’s only fair I followed up with a photo of Brooke Shields wearing that Rachel-Roy-designed hat.
It was all part of Grey Goose Vodka’s Kentucky Derby initiative.

Unfortunately, I don’t think the hat looks much better on than it did in the photo released before the big race.

What Grey Goose and Brooke Shields Have in Common

rr_roy_hat

The Rachel Roy designed hat which Brooke Shields will wear to the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Every now and then, we come across unlikely and seemingly random partnerships.

But I’ll excuse this one since it helps support a good cause.

On to the deets…

GREY GOOSE (yes, the vodka) has joined forces with fashion designer, Rachel Roy, to create a chic and sophisticated hat to be worn exclusively by Brooke Shields at the Kentucky Derby next Saturday.

It’ll be the race’s 135th running after which the hat will be autographed by the designer, Rachel Roy and actress, Brooke Shields.

Then it’ll be auctioned on the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation website May 3-16.

100% of the proceeds will benefit The Barnstable-Brown Foundation to support diabetes research.
