I had big plans for May. I was going to cover the Met Gala, jump right into Cannes and the Royal Wedding, produce content on the TV upfronts and the amfAR Gala and the Billboard Music Awards…and you get the point. Let’s just say that time got away from me. I can’t catch up on everything, but I would be a sham of a fashion blogger if I didn’t cover Cate Blanchett’s mostly triumphant series of Cannes looks. For a recap of her past Cannes attire, check out this post, and spoiler alert, she didn’t wear any of my picks for 2018, but she came close!
A few years back, many of you will remember that Anna made it her personal mission to re-vamp the Tony’s red carpet. She had previously called it a style “disaster”, and I think it’s safe to say that a few years into her tenure as official sartorial master of ceremonies, things have vastly improved. Bee looks lovely, and although this isn’t my favorite McQueen of late, it did make my shortlist for Cannes suggestions for Cate Blanchett. Anna’s neon yellow beaded Prada is phenomenal and one of my favorite looks of the night.
Everyone really turned it out for the Tony’s this year! There were a few duds, but nothing heinous and most folks looked fab! Let’s dive into our nominees, but first let me just take a moment to acknowledge how AWESOME the Tony’s step and repeat is every year. Thank you, Anna Wintour!
If you gave me a million guesses, I never would have pegged this for Thom Browne. It’s an absolute showstopper. The fact that this is by the same person responsible for this nipple-tastic ode to sailing demonstrates true range.
Well, it’s only a month late, but let’s finish up the royal wedding! I cannot believe this has taken me so long – one of the perils of having three jobs…Hoping to move on to some other stuff I missed during a busy May this week – check back for a Cannes recap, the Tony Awards, and various other premieres/royals outings from the last month!
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in Alexander McQueen
Thank heavens for the good people over at What Kate Wore for sorting out the mystery of Kate’s Alexander McQueen. As most people who follow HRH will have noted, this coat is VERY familiar. At first blush it appeared to be the same cream colored McQueen she first wore to Princess Charlotte’s christening back in 2015. However, it seems that this is a wholly new McQueen creation in a tricky to pinpoint light yellow. The matching hat with the pale gold flowers underneath is truly lovely.
I am glad that I wasn’t able to sit down and write this post until now. Saturday morning was such a whirlwind and something I had been looking forward to for so long, that having time to process it has been valuable. Let’s dive in…
Cheers all! I’m up bright and early at 5 AM ET for the Royal Wedding Festivities and we currently have the celebrity guests arriving! I am a little surprised by some of the attendees – a few folks I didn’t expect!
