Because sometimes the people that didn’t get invited to the actual event come out dressing better than ever!

Margot is all anyone is talking about tonight! With her new film “Focus” coming out very soon, this young actress on the rise is totally nailin’ it on the red carpet this evening. I love everything about this effortless look. She’s not the only one that decided to wear Saint Laurent tonight, but she’s clearly the one that wore it best. That necklace is everything.

I really love what I do. Tonight my work allowed me the opportunity to see the advanced screening of the new film “Inception,” due out this Friday, July 16th.
I don’t want to give too much away about the film because you will enjoy it so much more if you know less. In fact, Leonardo DiCapario said in an interview not too long ago that he liked that there was so much mystery surrounding the trailer and what the movie was about because it added more suspense.
The cast was amazing. Leonardo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and Marion Cotillard blew me away. Some movies rely on an all-star cast to generate more buzz, but most of the time it isn’t accounted for. In fact, many are left feeling unsatisfied. With Inception, you won’t be. Every person has served their purpose. No one impressed me more than Miss Ellen Page. Even though she broke out of her Juno character with Whip It, she truly showed her wide range of acting abilities in this movie.
The film was beautiful, thrilling, and daring. It will keep you on the edge of your seat for all two and a half hours, but you’ll love every minute of it. Christopher Nolan did an incredible job with it all and you might even catch a few similarities from The Dark Knight as well. It’s funny how the movie is about dreams and imagination because you will find yourself being pulled deeper and deeper into it and it is such an overwhelming feeling how attached you will be to this film in the end. What is real and what isn’t? This film will push you to think. It is complex and built upon layers, but it isn’t a chaotic mess. Just follow along and if you get a little lost along the way, maybe your imagination will put you back on the right track.
The reviews are coming out as we speak. The tough critics over at Rotten Tomatoes have already given it a 96% which is pretty damn good! For reference Toy Story 3 received a 99% and Eclipse got 54%
I also received some incredible responses from our viewers tonight:
“I can’t wait to go to sleep now!”
“…One of the best movies I’ve seen in two years.”
“Exceptional – best one I’ve seen all year.”
“I trust Nolan more than any other director.”
I highly recommend seeing this movie. I might even see it a second time. Let me know what you think!
It is the biggest fashion party of the year! This year’s theme is “Model As Muse”
