So you might’ve heard I was in New York City this past week enjoying the Met Gala(see the Photos!) and it was an amazing thrill seeing the Fashions and the Celebrity in-person after admiring them online for many years now. Red Carpets and flashing Cameras are something I vow to never get sick of! Promise. Hoping to visit again next Spring!
Although I did get to meet Met Gala Host Rooney Mara in-person and she was lovely to stop and say “hi” and blow me a kiss, unfortunately she didn’t do the Photo but I still will have the memory! One day I’ll have my Gwen Stefani and Anne Hathaway moment! I did get Photos with Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time) and Tommy Hilfigger but unfortunately they just didn’t turn out:(
Fortunately, most of the Celebrities I met were more than obliging and here are some of the Stars I got to get Snap with below. And yes, that is KYLIE MINOGUE!!!! She is just as lovely as I’d dreamed! Ditto for Kelly Ripa!! Armie Hammer too!! And I don’t believe Zooey Deschanel said “yes”! She never does!!
Beyond excited! I’m packing-up and heading out to New York City for a few days to capture the Festivities at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which always has been a dream of mine to experience. Like the rest of us I won’t be inside, but still I’ll be admiring the Fashion from the outside and sure to snap lots of Photos and hopefully meet some of my Idols! The theme this year is Punk and hosting is Rooney Mara, while Beyoncé will act as Honourary Chair.
Things will be a bit quiet for the next couple days, but be sure to check back upon my return for what surely will be lots of excitement! Expected this year are the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow, Dakota Fanning, Kristen Stewart, Rihanna, Florence Welch, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lawrence, Cara Delevingne, Kanye West and several, several more.

See you when I’m back! I’ll be uploading Photos on my Instagram and Twitter in the interim, so check there for the latest!
Fabulous news! Beyoncé has just been named Honourary Chairperson at next month’s Costume Institute Gala (also known as the Met Ball) at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. The annual Affair which sees Fashion and Hollywood’s A-List collide in an array of innovative outfits.
Last year, Mrs. Carter herself donned a stunning blue and black sequined, lace and feathery Givenchy Haute Couture Gown and this year joins the likes of Vogue‘s Anna Wintour as Co-Chair. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Star Rooney Mara Co-Hosts with Designer Riccardo Tisci.
I’ll definitely be out and about snapping some Photos at the Event and am terribly excited about returning to my second favourite City in the World!
The Met Ball takes place on Monday, May 6, 2013. We’ll have a ball!
In the meantime, let’s enjoy this brand new, fericous Snippet of Queen B‘s new Track Grown Woman below:
Wow! Nothing like a good Psychological Thriller to throw you off-center. You must watch this brand new Trailer for Side Effects (also known as The Bitter Pill) from Director Steven Soderbergh. Rooney Mara plays Emily, who turns to Prescription Medication to cope with her Husband’s (Channing Tatum) impending release from Prison. This Trailer is cut so brilliantly that there really is no telling what the deal is here and who’s behind Emily‘s Delusion. Jude Law and Catherine Zeta- Jones star also.
Is it just me or is Mara channeling some serious Natalie Portman here?
Made for a Budget of $30 million, Side Effects was shot last Spring in New York City and is slated for a February 8, 2013 release via eOne Films in Canada. Looks good.
