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!

Taylor Swift in Louis Vuitton

Someone’s trying a little too hard, right?

2015 Met Gala

Anna Wintour in Chanel – she hosted the whole thang so she had to be first. 

It killed me that I couldn’t post every look and have this ready to go for you all this morning! I was so excited to see some of the looks from the Met Gala yesterday evening and then a part of me knew that I would hate some looks as well. With the theme being, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” I was concerned that there would be jabs poked at stereotypes and Asian trends that would make me cringe. Of course there were, but like all things, we have to move on and not dwell on them. In the interest of saving time (and space!) I am choosing not to include looks that I felt were in poor taste.

2013 Golden Globe Awards

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture

Everyone kind of knew she’d be wearing Dior since she’s the new face and all, but no one expected her to look this flawless. The cinched belt at the waistline completes this look.

Robert Pattinson records an album

The Twilight actor is on the verge of releasing his first album, which will be a mix of a “stripped down Ray LaMontagne and Van Morrison.”

“Music is his first love!” says the second source. “He’s tortured because he avoids it. When he’s sitting around jamming in the studio, it’s his favorite moment of life.”

Tortured eh? Oh yes, being a heartthrob vampire is extremely difficult. What a hard life Robert Pattinson lives.

…I should really be more careful about my sarcasm because I’m nervous about finding myself in this situation again.

2011 Golden Globe Awards

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa

Chocolate brown and gold sequins are the perfect combination for this Golden Globe gown. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Olivia look this good! I also loved that she wore her hair down with her bangs since we are typically used to seeing it done up.

Let’s Talk: New Moon

I’ve never been a Twilight fan, but I’ve never been opposed to it either. I tried it out. I read 20 pages of the first book and watched the first movie. I’m curious to see how the story line goes so I will continue to watch the movies, but in no way do I find myself even remotely enjoying it.

One scene in particular made me laugh a little bit to myself. I was watching this w/ my mother by the way, and there’s that one scene where KStew approaches the shirtless men w/ her ‘tude and then BAM! out of nowhere… JACOB.

My mom nonchalantly says: What happened to animal activists? I’m gonna call them.

Anyways watching the movie tonight brought up a few questions I had:

  • Why is there no consistency in the movie? Scenes coming out of nowhere, nothing feels like it is organized that well… it’s a little hard to watch.
  • The man-bear dogs are so cute!
  • After that grueling fight between Jacob and the shirtless man, everything was resolved with a “sorry?” Talk about drama…
  • The soundtrack to the movie is so good. Death Cab for Cutie AND Lykke Li? It’s too bad the music can’t save the movie.
  • Do you ever feel that Bella puts herself in the worst situations? She’s practically asking for it.
  • Bella commenting on Jacob’s body heat, “You’re like your own sun.” WHAT a pickup line.
  • Bella and Jacob – such a tease
  • Romeo and Juliet reference? Is that really necessary?
  • Edward…be more emo please. Also, there was not enough of him in this movie. More Rob less Kstew please.
  • Kristen Stewart – I dare you to produce one complete sentence without a gasp of air, breaks in between, or stuttering.

So excited for Eclipse!

Meet: Alex Day

I first came across Alex Day’s YouTube account, Nerimon, one day when I was searching for things to compile together into A Collection post. I thought about including his video, but then realized it was too good and too funny to be thrown into a mix. It needed its own post. What caught my attention was Alex’s narration of the Twilight series. He’s only reached Chapter 5-6 so far, but already I feel like he is giving me a better rendition than the book itself.

I had so much fun writing up this interview for him! So I hope you all enjoy it :)

Q: Alex, how old are you and where are you from?

Alex: HI Katie! I’m 20 and I’m from a little town called Hornchurch in the UK. (I now have more subscribers than the entire population of Hornchurch, which is weird.)

Q: Where did the term Nerimon come from and what does it mean?

A: Oh, this story will make me look so cool – I used to be into Digimon when I was way younger, and to that end wrote fan fiction in which I had my own Digimon who was called Nerimon. And because Nerimon was a word I made up myself, it was never taken as a username, so I just kept it as my online moniker long after I stopped caring about the show. (It was good though.)

Q: #16 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – United Kingdom

#4 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – Musicians – United Kingdom

#15 – Most Subscribed (All Time) – Partners – United Kingdom

So YouTube thinks you’re pretty popular. How do you feel about these rankings? Is it pretty surreal or just kinda no big deal?

A: I find that the more ‘success’ I get, the more I realize how little all of it matters. I’ve been to YouTube gatherings where – no joke – people have been shaking in tears because they actually can’t contain how excited they are to meet me. I’m not telling you this because I’m bragging, I’m telling you because the moment I leave that place to get food or go to the loo or go home, I’m just me again, and nobody else cares. That’s the point – you’re only as ‘famous’ as the number of people who know your name. It’s all relative.

Q: Why do people think you’re so funny, do you think?

A: Haha – I think the main thing is that I can find humor in things that other people just overlook. A newspaper article, a letter, an old item from my childhood … I’m generally a really positive person who just enjoys life and finds fun in most things.

Q: You have about 77,773 subscribers. Are you surprised, shocked, excited by this number? I mean over 77,000 people in this world follow your life on YouTube. Sometimes when I post on my blog, I worry about security and if my writing is too personal, do you ever feel that way or not?

Note: Alex now has 85,806 subscribers

A: Just before midnight on Christmas Eve, I went over the 80,000 mark, which is amazing. I’m actually incapable of imagining that many people all together with me standing in front of them, making jokes about Twilight. A few hundred would be enough, so this is just crazy. I always idly thought “I could get loads of subscribers!” because I knew that I’d be exposed to a lot of people and it was possible, but I never really expected or even believed it would happen. In terms of honesty, I’ve always been a very open person because I believe that the biggest problem in the world is miscommunication, and transparency is a good remedy to that, so I’ve been happy sharing my life with people. It’s come with its flaws though; I no longer talk about my romantic life on YouTube because people tend to go Brangelina and take sides if anything goes wrong, and in reality they (of course) don’t know the whole situation before involving themselves with their judgments. (Not that I’m bitter – it’s just a learning curve.)

Q: You’re just 20 years old. What is a typical day in a life for Alex Day?

A: Every night I set my alarm for around 7:30 and every morning I find myself unable to get up till about 9, silently cursing myself for sleeping in yet again. I’ll debate getting food, but end up reading Lost on-set reports and Dollhouse speculation forums for a couple hours. If it’s been a few days since my last YouTube video, I’ll start thinking of what one I wanna do next, which would require either psyching myself up to get through another godawful chapter of Stephanie Meyer fiction or putting some other plan in place (I have a folder with draft video ideas waiting to be filmed). And at some point I’ll pick up my guitar and warble my way through a cover of Paparazzi by Lady GaGa (which I’m sure thrills the neighbours more and more every time they hear it). I don’t have a job, I should point out, because there are enough kind people buying my album that I can literally just fill up the time, day after day, until the sweet release of death.

Q: In three words describe what Trock is?

A: Time Lord Rock.

Q: Okay, just kidding, tell us what it really means!

A: :D It’s music about Doctor Who. I was hoping to start a similar movement to the popular wizard rock fandom, but the only band who’s released anything is my band, Chameleon Circuit.

Q: Which one comes first – vlogging or your music? The hard hitting question…

A: If I had to just pick one, then it’d be music, because I can’t do vlogging as a career. But they both feed very well into each other; people who like my comedy videos will wanna support me, so they’ll check out my music and hopefully like what they hear enough to buy it (you can hear the whole CD for free on my website). And I can film music videos for uploading, so they’re nicely married to each other.

Q: I’ve heard that you’ve been to Seattle (my hometown) before. What was your favorite part about it? Would you come back?

A: I lived in Seattle for two months in the summer, and it was a joyful experience overall. I love the character of the city – all cities have their own identity, but Seattle seemed to have more personality, with little quirks like the troll and the Space Needle. The Space Needle is great because I love retro-future stuff; the idea that people are always trying to predict what the future will look like, and it always looks like the future if the future were 1950, or whatever year it was. Futuristic predictions are complete products of their time, and the inevitably of that is quite beautiful, in my opinion :) EMP was cool too.

Q: What would you say is the biggest difference between people in London and Seattle?

A: Everyone’s so very very green in Seattle. London’s a lot more like New York, very gritty and grey, Seattle’s very environmentally conscious and that’s nice. And the PEOPLE are so nice, too. Londoners keep very much to themselves. Seattle people are nearly always happy to chat to strangers, and it just makes for a happier place.

Q: Name one place you want to visit, but haven’t yet and why? Why do you want to visit this place and why haven’t you visited it yet?

A: I’m going to LA in the summer, and I’m excited about that cos I think that’s a place I should go to. I want to visit Tokyo for the same reason. The only reason I haven’t gone yet is because I usually travel for the people, not the place; I stayed in Seattle because my girlfriend at the time lives in Seattle.

Q: I stumbled upon your YouTube channel when I discovered your Twilight chapter readings. Tell me what you REALLY think about Twilight so far.

A: Haha, you ask this like you’re expecting me to say “Well I do kind of secretly like it but don’t tell anyone”, right? There’s no hidden agenda, I promise you. The book is awful. I have to force myself to get through each chapter. Every time I finish filming a Twilight video, I turn the camera off thinking “That was awful, this won’t be funny”, and only when I watch it back during editing do I start to see that it wasn’t as bad as it felt.

Q: You’re going to continue reading chapters right?

A: Yes, I am – I started this because I genuinely feel like I’m providing a public service. There are so many people who make fun of Twilight that don’t even know the story of what happens in the book – including myself – so I feel like this way, they’ll be able to understand the story in all its stupidity, but without having to go through the mental turmoil of slogging through it themselves. (I know it sounds like I’m exaggerating but YOU TRY READING IT.)

Q: Have you seen the movies?

A: I saw the first one only because I wanted to sleep with the girl I saw it with. I went into the film fully aware that it’d be really terrible, and it still bothers me now when I look at the Twilight box office sales that a few pounds of that used to be mine. I have no interest in seeing the second one or any of the others.

Lulzzzzzz!!

Q: If you ever came face-to-face with Robert Pattinson, what would you say to him?

A: I’d love to hang out with Robert Pattinson! I’m as much a fan boy of him as any other Twilight hardcore, I actually think he’s awesome. I’d probably just shake his hand and say “Dude you’re so cool” and then hide away somewhere and cry at my own pathetic life.

Q: As of right now, what is your number one ambition? Is it to become King of YouTube or something else?

A: Hahahaha – ‘King of YouTube‘ isn’t a title they give out, to my knowledge, but if they did it would SO be my answer. My main ambition right now is to bring exposure to my music; to keep planning and releasing good music videos and spreading the word about me so that I can continue living in the way that I do.

Q: I like your style sir! Where do you shop at?

A: Thank you! <3 Almost everything I wear is from Topman, because they do smaller sizes than other shops and I’m quite a thin guy. The smaller stuff suits me better

Q: What’s your New Year’s resolution?

A: Oooh, you know, I haven’t actually thought about it yet. I don’t know. In 2004, my resolution was to be more confident, which worked out very well. In 2006 it was to start using weights – that got old near the start of February. I don’t know if I’ve made any resolutions since then. Anything I say will instantly feel like a chore, and will put me off doing it. So let’s say – to be in YouTube’s Most Subscribed list by the end of the year. Tough works, I need over double the subscribers I have now, but it’ll motivate me to keep making great videos and earning those extra viewers.

Q: If you could have anyone guest spot on your show, who would it be?

A: Ha, my ‘show’. I guess it’s just me in my house so I don’t think of it that way. Well if I could have ANYONE on my show, then … I dunno, I’d have to find a good use for the person so they weren’t just there for the sake of it. I think I’ll have Robert Pattinson just walk in at the end of one of my Twilight videos, saying “Hey, you!” and having a go at me.

Q: Can that person be me someday? :) hahah

A: Aww, you charmer <3 Well, the question you’re really asking here is “am I better than Robert Pattinson?” and Katie, you know that’s gonna be tough for me to answer :p

Q: Where can we expect to see you next Alex?

A: There’s a wonderfully creepy subtext to that question. I go shopping in Hornchurch most days, so if you’re really committed … apart from that, I’m gonna do more gigs in the New Year, including (hopefully) a US tour in the summer, and of course I’ll be uploading videos every week or so.

hahah I always ask that question last and he’s probably the only person to ever call that a little creepy!
