2016 Met Gala Red Carpet

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

Now Is Good

On June 24, 2011 I reported that Dakota Fanning and Kaya Scodelario would be starring alongside each other in a new film called “Now Is Good.” The trailer is finally out! The synopsis doesn’t exactly seem like anything we haven’t seen before, but Dakota is a phenomenal actress so there’s no doubting she won’t slay. The trailer didn’t show much of Scodelario, but I hope there’s more of a presence from her too.

Can I Live Like Dakota Fanning?

Dakota Fanning is a new freshman student at New York University this year and with a career like hers, there’s no way we could have ever expected her to shack up in a dorm room. Now, I loved my dorm experience. I was all about the friends and being involved for the first two years, but I was living in such a small space and sharing bathrooms with everyone on my floor. Those weren’t exactly the best perks about dorm room living. I suppose Dakota weighed her pros and cons and decided that her two bedroom / two bathroom apartment with 27-hr doorman and a sundeck was much better than on campus housing and after seeing photographs of her apartment – I think I can agree.

It’s not known if she has a roommate or not,  but I would imagine little sister Elle would sometimes crash with her. The apartment is $8,400 a month and happens to be the same building that Mr. John Mayer lives in as well. Any chance I can find an apartment like this for a price that is much less in New York City? One can only hope.
