Michelle Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner

My favorite 1st lady is dressed in Prabal Gurung at the White House Correspondents Dinner on May 1, 2010 at the Washington Hilton. And this is what I have to love about Michelle Obama our wonderful 1st Lady...she just is always impeccably stunning (except for a few occasional "what-was- she-thinking moments). And Mr. President never fails me! This man ALWAYS compliments his wife every time he makes a speech at an event such as this. How cute are they? I just love them together so much, truly are one of the cutest First couples ever. Anyways, back to Mrs. O...She is always a huge supporter of young designers and it is just great for these designers to have that type of exposure. She has made so many designers such as Jason Wu and Thakoon, amongst others, so recognized. And it is truly shows how daring she is for trying different and new and up-and-coming designers. It shows she takes risks within what she can get away with by being First Lady. I heart her. I think she's a wonderful, strong woman and watching her fashions and what she wears is so interesting for me. I think it's interesting to watch her every step and especially what she wears . I guess keeping track of what she wears makes me closer to her. What can I say, I admire this woman, so anything she does intrigues me!

On another note...can we say what was Kim Kardashian thinking when she wore her mother's "vintage" Valentino dress. I normally like what she wears but to the White House Correspondents Dinner, I mean come on! I get what she was trying to do, but to be honest, the dress looked better on her mother back in the day. She needed to wear something more suited for her more curvaceous body. I think she just wanted to wear something "appropriate" for a dinner event with the President of the United States, but I'm thinking she made a boo-boo this time around. I just think it wasn't as flattering. But she's a beautiful girl and normally hits it right with her body type, but this time I have to disagree with her choice to wear the Valentino dress. Don't get me wrong it isn't awful awful, she just could've done better or worn something more suited for her. What do you think?

Just not feeling it. She still looks pretty, but this dress was not a huge hit with her fans or the critics.
It's all good, she still is a good dresser for the most part with her lil' L.A. look. Still love your other looks, Kimmie! Just not THIS one! Eeeks!

Met Gala 2010

Oprah in Oscar la Renta with Oscar de la Renta himself.

Today was the Met Gala...the gala was hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Anna Wintour, and Gap creative director Patrick Robinson. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year and today is no exception. The theme at the exhibition is the "American Women: Fashioning a National Identity." The exhibit will run from May 5- August 25, 2010. The collection at the Met looks at women from 1890-1940 who have influenced the perception of the modern woman that we are accustomed to today.

Everyone came all dolled up and looked fabulous for the most part except for the few who committed fashion faux pas. Everyone who is anyone attends the Met Gala. Who was your favorite tonight? I think I have to say I loved what Sienna Miller was wearing and one of my favorites is always Blake Lively. The girl has got it going on, her style is on point and her body is bangin'! I really love Blake Lively and she truly has a great stylist combined with her eye because girlfriend knows what looks best on her. And Sienna Miller is just great. She is just a fashion icon and looks great in anything she wears, but what I was mainly surprised and shocked by was the fact that she showed up publicly with Jude Law on her arms!!! I guess he has been forgiven and it is official they are an item again. I know this isn't new news, but it boggles my mind of their on and off-again relationship. Well I guess it is what it is. Anyhow, here are some of the looks of tonight:

Blake Lively in Marchesa

Sienna Miller & Jude Law

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Anne Hathaway in Casadei

Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein

Sarah Jessica Parker in Halston

Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler

So that's a small taste of what people are wearing and what caught my eyes. I saw a posting from Rachel Roy who I happen to follow on FB and she had pics up of her going to the Met and she looked exquisite. Absolutely gorgeous. The Met Gala is the time to look your best and you definitely see that at this year's gala.

Here's a video of the event by the New York Post...

Oooooh weeeeee! Can we say SMOKIN'?!

Helena Christensen posed for Reebok nude! And let me tell you! She still has got it going on! This woman has got to be one of the most beautiful and sought after supermodels of her time and she still looks great at....41! You heard right...she's 41! And no wonder Reebok chose her to represent their new EasyTone sneakers, which supposedly are promised to work out your lil bum and legs at the same time! NICE! Sounds like a version of the Shape-ups, which is a version of the MBT shoes, and I have to say I have heard lots of great success stories for Shape-ups, so maybe who knows these EasyTone sneakers might do the trick and with Miss Helena Christensen posing nude in the sneakers may cause a riot and make women want those sneakers more! I don't know about you, but makes me wanna run laps in these EasyTones! The sneakers were designed by an ex-NASA engineer and claims these sneakers work out the derrière and legs. So if you want to have sexy legs and a cute little bum, go and get some EasyTone sneakers. I'm thinking if Helena Christensen loves them, they must be good, although she may have a huge advantage over us "commoners" and actually have the genes to look fit and perfect over the majority, but who knows. Maybe using these we normal people may have that chance...wink, wink!

To get a better understanding of the technology of how the shoe works, here is a video that goes into how the shoe actually works and the technology used to make the results they promise.
