Best of the Best: Met Gala 2013

Last night was the fashion event of the year: the Met Gala. The annual ball celebrates the opening of the Met’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. This year’s exhibit is called “Punk: From Chaos to Couture.” Even though I’m not a huge fan of punk, I thought attendees really brought it last night. Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne were my favorites of the evening. I’m excited to check out the exhibit in person- it runs from May 9 to August 14.

Best of the Best: Easter Eggs

Happy Easter! For some reason, I have been really into Easter eggs this year. The designs seem so much prettier and more creative than in years past. I stayed at school this year for Easter, and my one and only plan for the day (besides doing homework…) is dying eggs with friends. I’m sure they won’t end up one-tenth as adorable as these eggs, but a girl can dream…



Who watched the Oscars last night? My roommates and I had a few friends over to eat Indian and judge the red carpet, of course! Next year I want to throw a pajamas and pearls party. Aside from the red carpet goodness, I adored the Les Mis number- Eddie Redmayne is so dreamy. My pick for best dressed of the night is Jessica Chastain. Who was your fave?

Best of the Best: Golden Globes

How hilarious were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on last night’s Golden Globes? If I could have lunch with anyone in the world, I think I would pick those two… Overall, I was fairly impressed by the night’s fashion. Nothing was too too exciting, but I thought most stars looked really good! Kerry Washington was my favorite, with Isla Fisher a very close second. Here are a few of my favorite looks (I will spare you from my least favorites in an attempt to start the week on a positive note).

My favorite movies from the past year are:
1. Zero Dark Thirty: an honest, intense depiction of the capture of Osama
2. Silver Linings Playbook: a cheerful, playful treatment of dark issues
3. Les Misérables: a touching story with beautiful scenery and phenomenal music
4. Queen of Versailles: a fascinating peek inside the financial demise of a very wealthy family (note: I adored this documentary, but Catherine found it too depressing)
5. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: a sweet multi-narrative of British retirees living in India

And my fun picks:
6. Pitch Perfect: anything with the hilarious Rebel Wilson is worth seeing, in my opinion
7. Hunger Games: adventure, danger, and romance
8. The Bachelorette: great cast (Kirsten, Isla, Rebel, etc.) dealing with real issues
9. Looper: a thriller that really makes you think (I recommend The Bource Legacy for this reason, too)
10. Magic Mike: Catherine’s going to kill me for this one…
