Met Gala 2015: The Best

Every year we anxiously wait for that one night that takes us to far away lands or time periods. We certainly do not own time machines or supersonic airplanes (yet!), but the Met Gala achieves to make us gasp and dream and fly away, year after year. With decadent fashion and the more than exclusive guest list, the MET gala/party/every fashion girl’s dream come true, is certainly fun to watch.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s  annual gala is meant to raise money for the benefit of the Costume Institute and it also serves to mark the opening of the yearly exhibit.This year’s exhibition theme : China, through the looking glass intertwines Chinese culture, history, art and fashion into one exquisite display. Its theme was also the focal point of the gowns and fashion choices of its guests.

From demure to daring, from safe to all out extravagant, this year’s fashion choices did NOT disappoint. I loved how the predominant colour were red and nude. It created a powerful contrast among the ladies. Some certainly stuck to the Chinese theme while others decided to shine with their own style. Here are my favorite choices! Who were your #metgala2015 favorites?

NYFW- Stella Nolasco

As a Puerto Rican, I am extremely proud of those who excel not only in my country but also of those who shine bright outside of my little island. During NYFW two of our biggest fashion stars showed the world what Puerto Rican fashion was all about: Stella Nolasco and Luis Antonio. During New York Fashion Week 2014 one designer really stood out: Stella Nolasco. Her collection titled The Saint of my Devotion, featured an array of textures and fabrics that captured the essence of spring and summer in Puerto Rico. As a Puerto Rican, born and raised in the island, I can testify to the fact that spring in Puerto Rico is all about bright colors, sheer fabrics and lace. Stella brought all these factors and combined them to create one beautiful collection. The show, produced by PR giant Kelly Cutrone from Peoples Revolution, went as seamless and flawless as one would expect! StellaNolascoSS2015-1535x580 The ready to wear pieces had me dreaming of clear sexy nights in Old San Juan, and the gowns were perfect in every way. Each piece hugged the model’s body in all the right places and I can only assume that it will be the same on the client’s body.As piece after piece came down the runway I was left wanting them all! The Lincoln Center was left screaming for more as where fashionistas all around the world. I will definitely love to visit her atelier soon to see this gorgeous pieces first hand! It was definitely my favorite collection of all and I am so proud that it was done by a Puerto Rican! Good Job Stella! The Striped Complex is proud of you! Here are a some of my favorite pieces of the collection and a video to show you just how beautiful it all came together! Enjoy! 10653648_700107046750733_3001365742505417736_n
