I’m due for a haircut, like I am about twice a year. Sometimes I like a big change and other times I just want a trim. I have to admit though, after the second kid, I tend to go for more dramatic changes, I think it’s wanting to reinvent myself without actually reinventing myself. With kids it’s almost like things don’t change forever, and then all of a sudden they do, and you’re sort of lost. Well, I’m at the things seem to be staying the same part of my life and I’m looking for a fun new cut to make me feel, umm, young again?
1. Lupita Nyong’o in custom Suno. Yes and yes. The colors, print (of course, it’s what Suno is known for), and style are bold and daring fashion choices. Loved the outfit.

Today I have discovered this amazing photo of Sandy in the most strikingly beautiful lighting. I don’t know why it took me so long to see this, considering it was last year during the premiere of Gravity. Regardless, I’m struck by how beautiful and glowing her skin looks, and especially by that fantastic, stunning bright, bold, red lip of hers. The color is Valentine, and it’s by Elizabeth Arden, in case you were wondering, and yes, if you click here you can buy it.
Mary Kate and Ashley. Of course you all know I’m obsessed with their style. Ok, obsessed is a bit too strong of a word but I really love what they wear and what they design. Back when I used to write these Celebs Pretending to be Muslim posts, I basically started because of these two! Let me tell you a little about what I find so great about them. It’s not because they’re celebrities, because at the end of the day what does that really matter? No, it’s because (for the most part) they dress so modestly without shouting, “look at me I’m dressed modestly.” It’s high fashion, and in this case, vintage Ferre and Chanel.

One of the most important fashion events of the year, Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City, otherwise known as, The Met Gala, unleashed some incredibly beautiful clothes, accessories and details on celebrities and the fashion folks who attended. This year I decided to share with you some of the most gorgeous details from the night, instead of running through a boring old slideshow of the millions of celebs in their outfits.
