There was an unbelievable amount of love for Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney at this year’s 2011 Met Ball. I think out of all the Met Ball’s I have seen, this one has provided the most looks that I have fallen in love with. Well done everyone.
This year’s theme was in tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen as the museum debuted a new exhibition in his name. Since there were so many attendees this year, I decided to post only my favorite looks (and a few others) – don’t worry, it’s still pretty image heavy!

I’m in the middle of watching the trailer right now and am finding myself close to tears. I’ve seen my fair share of wedding videos, but none like this one. The others are usually very bright and upbeat – but Coco’s is dark, passionate… it looks like the trailer for a film! The trailer is three minutes long, but the actual wedding video is about 19 minutes long. The 21-year old model married James Conran in a beautiful French castle wearing a gown by Zac Posen.

They’ll take your breath away.
At just 21 years old, Coco Rocha, is the model with a name familiar to nearly everyone in the fashion industry. She describes herself as, “6 inches taller and 10 sizes smaller than the average American woman…” but just this week she took notice of some not-very-nice comments splashed across the pages of The New York Daily News and The New York Times with the headline, “Coco Rocha is too fat for the runway.”
With headlines like these, what is the general public supposed to think? Being skinny isn’t enough because that’s what Coco Rocha already is. She’s skinny. Now we have to throw up and starve ourselves to be a less fatter version of Coco Rocha? The media and those who create these headlines are giving us impossible standards to live up to. Once we reach them, we put our lives and health on the line.
“How can any person justify an aesthetic that reduces a woman or child to an emaciated skeleton? Is it art? Surely fashion’s aesthetic should enhance and beautify the human form, not destroy it.”
Coco addressed these headlines on her most recent post from her blog, “Oh So Coco.” Please read it as she is absolutely correct! Thanks Coco for standing up because otherwise we would all still strive to be what doesn’t exist. Remember this controversial ad that Ralph Lauren released late last year?
Yeah, I don’t like it either.
You really are never too old to be doing things like this hahah
Model Coco Rocha and her father filmed themselves dancing to a song from the Jungle Book. This is the cutest thing ever, I can’t imagine if my father and I were to do something like this to Mulan.
