You’re Invited to the Costume Institute Gala…

Posted in Celebs with Style, Style News on April 26th, 2012 by styltribe

And you won’t need a gown, or even those fab Nicholas Kirkwood heels you need to beg, borrow or steal for!  Yep, that’s right — all you’ll need is your trusty wifi connection!

Since the Costume Institute Gala has been touted as the Oscars of the fashion scene, attended by obscenely fashionable elite and celebutantes alike, it’s no wonder that the powers that be have decided to webcast the red carpet arrivals live.

And, just to be sure you won’t be watching any other tech-savvy guests with a webcam, hosts will be none other that Vogue’s own William Norwich and Elettra Wiedemann and interviews are promised from the likes of Anna Wintour and Muccia Prada.  Take that, competition!

So make a note, program your iPhone and tune in to or, and from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on May 7th.  I may just put on those Kirkwoods just for fun…see you there!

Raf Simons Named Dior Designer du Jour

Raf Simons

So a few tears were shed at Jil Sander upon the announcement of the departure of head designer Raf Simons, whose Fall ’12 collection drew the admiration of even the ill-fated John Galliano. But Dior fans can cheer the newly named head honcho of the house with Simons’ graceful landing into the role there. He’s been quoted as saying it “just feels right” to be at Dior. We loved him at Sander and it’s this girl’s bet that we’ll love him even more at CD. What happens to Bill Gaytten, who has been steering the luxury ship since Galliano’s tirade? His future is unknown, but let’s hope that the execs from up above know how to show a little gratitude for some amazing collections in between celeb designers. Stay tuned, fashion fans!
