Ready, Set, Met.

Liya Kebede on the way to this year’s Met Ball, compliments of Rachel Roy

It’s that time of year again: The Met Costume Institute Gala & Exhbition. Last year’s exhibition, “Model as Muse”, brought out some fun and creative looks from the crowd; while this year’s exhibition, “American Women: Fashioning a National Identity”, brought out a lot of safe, iconic looks from the past. I’ve given my top picks to designs that saw this exhbition as an opportunity to dress an edgier American woman. My top 7 to follow:

1. Liya Kebede

Rachel Roy & Liya Kebede: I can't get enough of Rachel Roy and this is the 2nd year Liya has been a favorite from the Met Gala

2. Tina Fey

Tina Fey in Yves Saint Laurent: Big ups to Tina Fey's stylist lately. I think jumpsuits should have been even more present at this gown-laden-gala event.

3. Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington in Thakoon for Gap: Kerry can be hit or miss, but she is killin' it in this color.

4. Chloë Sevigny

Chloë Sevigny in and with Proenza Schouler: She never does wrong by me.

5. Zoë Kravitz

M.I.A., Alexander Wang, & Zoe Kravitz in Alexander Wang for Gap: These are the kids I want to hang out with at school.

6. Chanel Iman

7. Marc Jacobs,

for designing two dresses I couldn’t decide between:

Nicole Richie (loooove) in Marc Jacobs

Rachel Zoe in Marc Jacobs: I adore this dress, I just wish someone else was wearing it...

    Jumpsuited Tina Fey, M.I.A. Hey laaaadies.


    Rachel Zoe looks like a science class skeleton model with a wig and skin suit pulled over it. But that’s a nice dress. Probably would look better on anything/body besides a zombie.
