Well. I mean, of course it’s not surprising that Solange is Best Dressed. In fact, she’s been using the MET Gala as her personal runway for years—a place where she is, in a different way than Rihanna, expected to reign. Full Story

I promise that we try. After the Oscars and the Globes and the Emmys and especially the MET Gala, when we break down the list of coverage and consider the assignments, Duana and I try mix it up, we try not to keep going to the same names for best and Heidi Klum for the worst. Last night we had an editorial standoff because we both wanted the same person for our best. Full Story

Lainey and Lorella and I talk about Celine a fair bit. Mostly we talk about Celine and Rene. How bananas it all was. How much she loved him. She grieved more than anyone will ever grieve. She mourned! Wearing black lace! It’s like an opera taking place in real life. Full Story

You know I have opinions. And we’ll get to those in just a moment. But first I find myself having to say something… if not in Blake Lively’s defense, then on her behalf: We stay up all night to write, and it’s inevitable that sometimes I forget what it was I wanted to say or whether the same designer designed dresses for two mortal enemies, or what. Full Story

No, of course it doesn’t have to be a competition. But when two women both wear a distinctive hairstyle that’s nothing like their own (and is very obviously a tribute to Rei Kawakubo) you tend to wind up putting their attempts beside one another. Full Story

Sorry. SORRY. That word is lame as f-ck. “Faceoff.” But I couldn’t quite land on another one. Confrontation seems too serious. Triangle isn’t accurate. And of course it all sucks anyway because this is two girls petty-ing over a guy, a situation in which there can be no winner but… But… Nobody ever complained about a fashion faceoff, right? So we have Selena Gomez Full Story

I like Dakota Johnson’s relationship with Gucci because they are doing the “ugly expensive” thing really well right now and it completely suits her vibe. When Dakota wears something “unlikable” (ie: something that will get her on a Worst Dressed list in a celebrity weekly), I feel like she does it on purpose and that she is using fashion to rage against the 50 Shades of Grey expectations. Full Story
