leighton meester met gala
The Met Gala is probably my all-time favourite red carpet event. Just one look at Leighton Meester’s 2009 Met Gala ensemble – above – gets me all goosebump-y (to top it off, she’s wearing Marchesa tonight!)

I am proud to announce that, for the first time, you will be able to watch the Met Gala Red Carpet Live from Amazon! Just click that link, and from 6.30pm EST you can settle into an online fashion haven. I will also be live-blogging over at @lelalondon on Twitter to tell you who is wearing what as I find it out from the inside!

Expect to see Balmain’s Oliver Rousteing with Joan Smalls, Alexander Wang with Azealia Banks (who is performing), Anthony Vaccarello with Anja Rubik, Joseph Altuzarra with Lana Del Rey, Erdem Moralioglu with Arizona Muse, Rachel Zoe (and hubby Roger) with Karolina Kurkova, Thakoon Panichgul is taking Christina Ricci (YAY),  Proenza Schouler with Isabel Lucas, Heidi Klum in Escada, Michael Kors with Kate Upton (he also dressed Hilary Swank, Jessica Alba, and Liu Wen), Kenneth Cole with Chace Crawford, Donna Karan with cartoon supermodel Polly Bean (I’m serious), Derek Lam with nine-months-pregnant Katharina Harf, Amy Adams in Giambattista Valli haute couture, and all of the Vogue editor’s wearing pink (as per Anna Wintour’s request).

Everyone’s favourite model – Coco Rocha – is wearing an untailored (and slightly wine-stained) neon Givenchy pants suit with matching jacket which she purchased at Elizabeth Taylor’s auction at Christie’s in December. A little birdy tells us her beauty look is “Schiaparelli pink”. I’ve already begged for curls.

This week, everyone and anyone in the media eye seemed to have congregated to one location:, the annual Met Costume Institute Gala (or “Met Gala“). This year, the Vogue-created ball celebrated the life and work of the late, great Alexander McQueen and ended up raising $10.8 million for the Costume Institute.

While thirteen McQueen gowns were worn, the best of the red carpet best are below: View Post

Ruthie Davis‘ shoes have been on the pegs of New York Fashion Week’s models since starting up her label in 2006. You can be sure you’ve been wowed by her shoes at some point in the past four years of pop culture as she is adored by celebrities like Beyoncé, Lady GaGa, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Maria Bello, Christina Ricci, Penelope Cruz, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Leighton Meister, Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad. Her sushi heels were virtually a stylist staple over the last year.

She embodies the phrase ‘killer shoes’.
