Avoiding all things sheer from the VMAs and still picking some maybe contentious looks from the night showing my bias toward certain patterns and colors. Plus it is time for tennis and cute frocks as we transition from summer and fall. And we’ve also got the TGIT Entertainment Weekly cover.
Taylor Swift’s glitzy Ashish ensemble has been pretty divisive and I am firmly in the love it camp; yes it looks like fancy pajamas or exercise attire, but I am all in on the houndstooth pattern and it is something slightly different for Tay. The Christian Louboutin ‘Pumpstagram’ pumps don’t entirely go with the look and yet I am still drooling all over them.
Starry Saint Laurent for Cara Delevigne and my favorite sartorial turn from Team Taylor at the VMAs. This is relaxed cool and Cara really looks like she gives none of the fucks. And I suspect she probably doesn’t.
In the same way I can’t resist houndstooth this shade of yellow is my weakness and this Emilia Wickstead dress happens to be called ‘Emma:’ yes Gigi Hadid looks like she has come to the VMAs cosplaying the Mad Men episode “The Jet Set” and I am more than fine with this. Still shaking my head at myself as I only just realized that Yolanda from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is Gigi’s mother.
Moving on and I will spending the next two weeks obsessing over the US Open and this kicks off a busy couple of weeks in New York (Fashion Week is coming). The 15th annual USTA opening night gala took place on Monday and Amanda Seyfried’s RED Valentino frock is cute collar perfection.
Anna Chlumsky’s white ribbed dress is tennis watching simple chic and would look even better with a glass of Pimms and lemonade in hand (yes this is the US Open, but traditional Wimbledon drinks are where it is at).Fall TV is right around the corner and Thursday night television is Shondaland on ABC. This is my favorite of the four Entertainment Weekly covers as it showcases Shonda and her leading ladies and with Shonda at the center; the red of her dress matches the cover title and she is the star here.
