10 Fashion Feats and Fails at the Met Costume Institute Gala

Edited by

The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s annual Costume Institute Gala is tirelessly referred to as the Oscars of fashion and it certainly ranks as the industry’s glitziest and most glamorous night.  But unlike the Oscars red carpet, where actresses willfully play it safe for fear of a career-defining performance on the worst dressed list, at the Met Gala the balls are to the haute couture wall. This is Fashion with a capital effin’ F. Sometimes the results are truly stunning and other times they’re…how can I put this gently…god-awful. Let’s take a look back at the Met Gala’s greatest hits and misses.

Tom Ford’s Fall 2012 Women’s Collection Video

Edited by

Ever since his triumphant return to the world of women’s fashion, Tom Ford has been a secretive Sally, keeping his collections under wraps to avoid oversaturation in the market. It’s definitely a strategy, one that keeps people interested and talking, but also one that has blown up in the designer’s face before. But with Gwyneth Paltrow shutting down the Oscars in that gorgeous cream caped confection, and positive reviews abounding, Ford’s Fall 2012 collection was a return to form. And now there’s a video of it. Sadly, it’s not like his glitzy, Beyoncé-filled Spring 2011 video — rather, it looks like it was thrown together by an 11-year-old in iMovie the night before it was due — but you still get the point. Click through for Tom Ford’s Autumn/Winter 2o12 women’s collection video after the jump.

Sofia Coppola Directs Marni for H&M in Marrakesh [Film + Behind-the-Scenes]

Edited by

Sofia Coppola burst her fashion film virginity all over Marni for H&M - she must be in love with the collaboration as much as we are.  In distinct Coppola style, the scene is set in a swanky locale; a house in Marrakesh that she had been to once before with friends. It involves beautiful people giving meaningful glances, becoming slightly forlorn, then ending with a sense of harmony, all set to uptempo jazz. Fusing vivacious Marni prints with the eclectic nature of this Middle Eastern abode, Sofia Coppola captures the copacetic capsule du jour. Indulge the short film, then go behind the scenes with the Oscar winning Coppola herself. Then just wait it out till the Marni for H&M launches on March 8th
