Met Gala 2018: Updates on Fashion’s Biggest Night

The Biggest Moments at This Year’s Met Gala

The Met Gala is known as a prestigious fashion event filled with exclusive A-List attendees handpicked by Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour.

The reason for this event is to raise funds for the Met’s Costume Institute, where it’s attendees’ outfits are showcased. This years theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” which brought about a lot of conversations on the topic as some see it as controversial. Mixing fashion and religious artistic production gave us some intricate and renaissance themed outfits at the Met Gala this year. Many attendees showcased beautifully designed head pieces that could give off an angelic vibe.

The designers this year really took their designs to the next level with these detailed pieces showcasing Swarovski crystals, head pieces, gold hue’s and even wings. Dolce & Gabbana was one of the artists that really took the theme to heart and showcased many crowns and Vatican themed dresses. All in all, I have to say the outfits showcased this year are some of the most beautiful yet.

 

Blake Lively

The actress’s Versace gown had a massive train that forced her to arrive in a party bus. According to Vogue  the gown “Spliced with sheer panels on both sides and covered in so many beads that it took 600 hours to embroider the bodice alone, there was no chance that Lively’s entrance would go unnoticed,” Although her husband, Ryan Reynolds couldn’t attend as he was promoting his upcoming movie “Deadpool 2” she definitely stole the show all by herself.

 

Kanye West did not attend

Amid all the controversy surrounding Kanye West and his tweets, he did not attend the gala. Kim Kardashian West showed up in an all gold Versace dress. Kim responded to Kanye on Twitter by saying she wished he was there but he was “only finishing up 5 albums”.

Katy Perry

Virgil Abloh + Kendall Jenner

Virgil Abloh brought out one of the first pieces from Louis Vuitton since becoming their menswear artistic director. Staying within the theme, the all-white suit was decorated with Catholic stained glass pieces. Kendall Jenner was his date and was dressed accordingly, in OFF-WHITE and a pair of Jimmy Choo’s from the OFF-WHITE collaboration. Abloh wore the “UNC” OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1s which are said to be dropping soon.

Trends: Belt Bags, The Ultimate Summer Item

Belt Bags

The hottest fashion trend this summer is belt bags. Not only are they cute, but they’re super comfortable especially when going out. These could be mistaken for your average fanny pack, but don’t get it twisted. These are more a belt accessory then an actual bag.

They’re perfect because they let you keep all your necessities in one place without having to haul a bag around. These are some of my favorites, definitely great for traveling too, that way you won’t have to search around in your carry-on for your phone or credit card.

Top 5 Florida Springs to visit this Summer

As Summer approaches, we’re all getting ready to plan some vacations. If you’re planning on making a trip to Florida this summer, or are from Florida (like me) and want to go on a little adventure, here’s some ideas. Usually when I go home in the summer I tend to get a flight anywhere else, but I’ve never really ventured through Florida and seen all the pretty spots we have right here. These are all the springs on my Florida bucket list.

1. Weeki Wachee Springs

Weeki Wachee springs is an enchanted place where you can see live mermaids, take a trip on a river boat cruise, learn about Florida wildlife, and swim in the Buccaneer Bay. You can also rent a paddle boat and go down to the Weeki Wachee river.

2. Manatee Springs 

This state park has trails that will lead you around deep sinkholes, walks through the forest, and a spring with extremely clear water. The hue of the spring is actually from microscopic limestone particles in the water.

3. Wakulla Springs

Wakulla Springs is known for having one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world. There are daily guided riverboat tours as well as glass boat tours where you can see the clear water up to 75 feet.

4. Madison Blue Springs

This is considered one of Florida’s top cave dives and is a hundred-foot spring that allows for non-diving fun as well.

5. Devil’s Den Spring

This is definitely a place that has been on my bucket list for a while. It’s a prehistoric spring good for snorkeling and diving. They even have cabins and parks to stay the night.

Have you been to any of these? Let me know in the comments!
