Altuzarra tropical blazer!!! £1,040

Todays pick of the day is this tropical print blazer, it is one of the hottest items this season for a good reason!! Its vibrant print adds color,trend and fun to any look fabulously shown on the runway with black t shirt and pants, it can easily turn a dull look mega fab, mega fashion!!! I would style it with white or black wear it with something minimalist or if your a more bold and vibrant girl wear it with prints and go crazy with the accessories!!! I call it "BIRDS OF PARADISE" wouldn't you agree! But not every women can own a £1000 blazer in the wardrobe so i found some high-street alternatives WARNING: THERE NOT AS FAB!!!

Topshop £65.00 (BARGIN!!!)

This topshop tropical floral blazer is the closest thing you will find to the altuzarra blazer though it isn't as bright and vibrant the print is beautiful and can still brighten up any look and lets you be on trend due to the floarls and tropical influence. I think this would be favorable amongst most ordinary girls due to the fact its less in your face but i think its just less fab. But still love it and recommend you buy it!!! NOTE:WEAR WITH WHITE,NOT WITH JEANS,NOT WITH BLACK,FLOARL ON FLORAL YES!

River island £40.00

This isn't the best quality blazer and the print is quite dull but its cheap easy and tropical!! The pineapples are a cute way to embrace the tropical print! Again this is not as bright as the fab altuzarra but is cute easy on trend and affordable so why not? NOTE:WEAR CAUSAL EG.JEANS,DONT WEAR WITH BLACK,DONT WEAR WITH DRESS

Zara £29.99 (BARGIN)

This is most alike the original its vibrant but not to much,cool and very refreshing and so affordable!!! Its a cute bomber jacket not exactly a blazer but the fact that it isn't just makes it more cool wear that with cute white party dress neon pumps and cute clutch your ready for a fab business or casually lunch on a sunny day or wear it casual whilst shopping our just casually meeting friends. Its cute fresh and would 100% recommend you to buy its so cheap and extremely on trend and cool!!!

Lana is wearing a custom altuzarra gown and CAPE. When i saw her i screamed "OMG LANA IN A CAPE,LANA IN A CAPE!!" the cape was a trend on the met steps this year with 4 fab invitees supporting them. Lanas was the best. I do love here cape but if she removed it there you have a stunning silver gown which is top 5 material!!! But i love lana her cape,gown and fabulous lips get her to no.10! Love her music and style!

9

Eva Mendes is number 9 wearing a custom prada gown which she looks stunning in. It was one of my fav color choices of the night it was something different which i like at the met and it suited her skin tone (that may sound racist) Miuccia designed and selected this dress just for eva which i think makes it even faber.

8

Coca rocha made and impression!!! Here hair was most talked about and i think it goes perfectly with her vintage look. I cant express in words how this look is so fab. Its vintage givenchy and was once owned by the legendary ELIZABETH TAYLOR who is one of the most fab women of all time. It screams vintage and 50s prom which is perfect because the met is fashions prom love that yellow and that pink is everything!!!!

7

Here we see another star in another custom prada love it!!! This was one of my fav custom prada gowns its perfect for jessica. Firstly i love Jessica's hair, next i love the length of the dress the fabric silhouette and fab green print its so fabulous i couldn't take my eyes of her on the red carpet!

6

Mia wasikowska is the new face of miuccias miu miu and such a title gives her such privileges as attending the met gala for the first time in custom prada. The gowns minimal with the most fab black embellishments in the perfect places i especially love that color it adds youth and mia into the dress! Its heavenly chic i love the color its stature, its youthfulness and its OMG moment quality which is hard to explain!!

Top 5!!

5

Carey mulligan is also part of the mets biggest trend CUSTOM PRADA GOWN!!! This one is certainly special as it differs from the rest not have the signature prada and miu miu fall embellishment seen on all the custom gowns. It was the first gown on the carpet i said omg!!! Its gold gold gold another trend from the gala and has fabulous sequence scales!! The fresh and fab silhouettes is pleasing and so is careys hair!! This look in one phrase embodies the event!!

4

Rooney Mara is simply chic. She is supporting a very big trend for fall which was actually started by her DARK ROMANCE. The gown has such a gothic and romantic presence and ricardo designed it to suit rooney exactly. Rooney is fashions muse at the moment and is especially givenchys ricardo so this whole look is perfect!!!

3

Supermodel Anja Rubik knows how to work this dress!!! Its an Anthony vaccerllo my favorite new designer who is all about the women's body and sexuality doing this through fab cut outs. This dress has cut outs and slips in all the right areas this is something only a supermodel could pull of and SHE CERTAINLY DOES THAT. Its sexy,chic and will be an iconic met image because its so met ball and i adore it!!!

2

I think one of the most iconic images for the met gala from the past 5 years is Tom and Gisele always looking impecable this year they have done it again getting the number 2 spot. She is wearing a major Givenchy its chic sexy and fab choice for gisele. It's construction and fit makes her looking stunning i think see is one of the most deserable woman in the world and this dress heightens why. Its just Classic Gisele and tom which is perfect was an OMG moment!!!

It was 8.30 the carpet was over and it was amazing i was on such a high but i said to myself i wish beyonce would have been there. Then when i arose this met tuesday morning to see the medias reaction it was beyonce on the front of every headline she was an absolute sensation. I love love love that see made sure all eyes where on her she was the only one on the carpet because everyone else was inside and it was such a moment she knows how to create a media buzz! She is the most beautiful woman in the world and she was the most beautiful and BEST DRESSED woman at the met!!! First lets talk about the dress, its givenchy its sheer covered with embellishments and the most amazing feathers its couture overload. You may remember halle berrys worst dressed givenchy purple gown at the oscars 2 years ago this dress is from that same collection only beyonce knows how to make it work at the oscars of red carpet the oscars is  nothing compared to the met and this dress is the dress of all dresses its high fashion something that would only work at the met and it most certainly did that out of over 800 party guest all eyes were on beyonce!!! She had a baby just months ago and look at her body just look at it in this dress UNBELIEVABLE!!! Is she human! Finally i love the black and purple tones on the dress and that it covers her all the way up to her fingers i have never seen that on a red carpet and  i love it maybe beyonce will start a new red carpet trend!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT  and will be iconic met look for years to come!!!!

This season velvet made a major return, designers have been showing it in causual and glam looks this season so next fall you will definitely be seeing some velvet somewhere!!!

How to wear

This season with the velvet trend the best way to wear it would be through 3 key items that will look incredible stylish and on trend!

1.The little velvet dress

The little velvet dress will be a major party dress for the fall season because its on trend,looks very chic and has a sexual look. It is a great way to wear the glam side of velvet trend without buying a evening dress also the velvet dress will also be making appearances on the high street in such stores as zara, topshop and H&M and also in the high end stores such as gucci,tom ford,carven,ralph lauren and several others the the little velvet dress is easy glam and great way to wear the velvet trend!!!

2.The velvet pant

This item merges several major trends this season velvet,pants,tailoring and strong clothes so the velvet pants would be easy causal,glam and smart way to wear the velvet trend. Pants can work with a lot of different items dresses,blouses,sweaters etc and can be very easy on the eye. For example a cute proenza schouler brocade dress worn with a fab velvet pant can make the look extra fab and more easy! So the velvet pant is a versatile way to incorporate the velvet trend into your everyday wardrobe along with others!

3.The velvet skirt

The velvet skirt is really fabulous way to incorporate velvet into everyday wardrobe because is great work clothes,great casual clothes and great evening glam clothes. It also comes in a lot of different silhouettes and is versatile giving every women the opportunity to wear a velvet skirt. The velvet skirt is cute and sexy and can look cool and preppy, I would certainly go with the velvet skirt out of the 3 items!

More fab velvet looks from the season
