The First Monday In May, aka the Met Gala is a date for the diary. Hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, ticket sales from the event benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. This year’s theme — Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology — called for futuristic fashion. It’s probably the only night where there are no rules, you can interpret the theme any way you want sometimes the crazier the better.
Now whilst the guest list is crazy with top names like Madonna rubbing shoulders with Taylor Swift & her squad, the gathering of Victoria Secret models, the list is endless. This year for me there was 1 winner, actress Claire Danes, who looked breathtaking in a one-of-a kind, glow-in-the-dark garment by Zac Posen she truly was Cinderella.
The core of the story concerns Paul “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis,) a rags-to-riches hedge fund billionaire who has been less than clean in his climb to the top. His company Axe Capital becomes a company of interest for US attorney Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giamatti), who is determined on making the wolves of Wall Street pay for their various crimes.
Already been shown in the US & after only 2 episodes it has been renewed for a 2nd series so based on that I have it on record for when it comes to our screen’s at 9pm on 12th May.
JT’s Is Back…
It’s been 3 years since Justin Timberlake released his last single & minutes after midnight last night he released his new single ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling.’ Finally he is back!! Justin has been teasing new music for months, since he Instagrammed a pic of him & Pharrell in the studio together in March. After several more similar photos something was brewing, we just didn’t know when.
The sunny song has the potential for being a contender for the song of the summer, it definitely has that feel good factor & it’s everything you’d hope it would be from the star & more. It;s peppy chorus tells us to “dance, dance, dance” & that is exactly what you want to do!
In the video he released with the song, he’s in the studio with his fellow cast members from Dreamworks’ forthcoming film, Trolls (including Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Gwen Stefani and Icona Pop).
I have always been a dresses girl, maybe it’s because it’s easier to find 1 piece instead of 2 when looking for trousers & a top but whatever the reason getting ready & putting on a dress that I feel good in is what I try to go for.
With the weather getting oh-so slightly warmer I have been going for floral dresses but a block colour if the fit is right can be simple & classic. This Camel Nodo dress from MSGM caught my eye simply for the design. It’s simple but on trend with the belted waist & oversized pocket. This is a great dress for the day with gold sandals teamed with a tote or a stiletto & cape for a dinner date with drinks. AA x
