Olympic’s 2012 FASHION GOLD

 

For all us fashion folk and Gen Xers: As if the all-awaited rumors of the Spice Girls reunion wasn’t enough- we got all the fashion/supermodel bonus!

It was as if the Gods of Fashion, Gays, And Girl Power all came and united- Who doesn’t love Models at a Party???

First- George Michael sings, “FREEDOM”, the 90’s anthem to EVERYONE- just watch the music video- every supermodel from the 90’s was in it!

As the different English bands were featured, all of a sudden, David Bowie’s “FASHION” song came on while HUGE trucks featuring large photos of some of Britain’s iconic models. Then… when all trucks were entered- the photos dropped to reveal the actual models inside, dripping in gold designs!!! Oh LORD- it was AMAZING! First Naomi, then Kate, Stella… it was brilliant.

A Fashionable Olympic Closing Ceremony

Kate Moss of course being my ALL TIME FAVE EVER looked SO F’ING AMAZING, and with her, Naomi Campbell- who (look below- WORKED that walk!!!) ¬†Lily Donaldson, Stella Tenant, Karen Elson, Jourdan Dunn, and the always handsome David Gandy.

The different designers worn were: Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Burburry, Christopher Kane, and of course our lovely newbie; Victoria Beckham. ūüôā

And now… lets hear it for the Spice Girls!

SPICE GIRLS OLYMPIC CLOSING CEREMONY 2012

This moment was THE one I had been waiting for- to see all 5 girls back up there, and of course, KNEW they would sing “Spice up your life”… Brilliant Fun. Of course they all looked great, but because I’m obsessed with Posh, I had to throw in an extra shot of her…

I MEAN….. GODDDAAAAAAAMN!!! HOTHOTHOT!!

As for the breakdown of who/wore/what:

Posh- Giles Deacon black (duh) dress showing LOTSA LEG!

Ginger- Suzanne Neville red bustier dress (w/ Union Jack of course!)

Baby- Maggie Cooke pink dress with crystal shoulders

Scary- Zuhair Murad sequined bodysuit

Sporty- (unknown sporty jumper)

Needless to say- Best part of the night!!!!

OSCAR 2012 FASHION!!!

OSCAR FASHION 2012- HERE IT IS!

Rooney Mara in Givenchy Oscars 2012

Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy. THANK GOD- She’s wearing WHITE!!!!! Finally, something other than BLACK! She says she chose it “just this morning”. Well, it looks like it- it looks wrinkled, and frumpy. ¬†Like her stylist just took it out of the garment bag from the back of the trunk, and put it on the rolling rack. No jewelry, just red lipstick. And those BLUNT BANGS. She looks like a goth teenager. NEXT……….

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton Oscars 2012

Michelle Williams, in Loius Vuiiton. same hair, same whispy look. There is nothing here that I care about. Boring. I’ve seen it. I’m over it.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji Oscars 2012

Octavia’s picking the same designer she’s been wearing to all award shows this past season. True, the rule is “if you know what fits you best, stick with it”, but since it’s Oscars… I just expected MORE. Step out of the comfort zone, you’re up for an Oscar, there are so many designers out there… I’m sure at least ONE of them would have made an amazing special dress for you…. SAFE…..

Stacy Keibler in Marchesa Oscars 2012

So, basically, if George Clooney doesn’t go home with an Oscar, his gf can substitute as the statue? There’s gold, and then there’s replica. The fact that the gold is so matte, makes it boring. Had this been shimmery with sequins, nude cutouts… anything… would have upped the ante here…

Melissa McCarthy in Marina Rinaldi Oscars 2012

This is horrible. Choosing a flesh/skin/rose colored dress on a VERY large figured women is bad bad bad….. She looks big, she looks bloated, nothing here is complimenting anything. Horrible choice. She needs to stick to dark colors for a long time. People are saying that they like it. Listen people: just because she’s big, doesn’t mean you have to fake that she looks good. If she’s skinny, tall, short, black whit- she still looks the worst.

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen Oscars 2012

Jessica looks great, we like her, she’s cute… this dress though- not my favorite. I don’t think it’s “OSCAR”. Yeah, her body looks great in it, but the gold detail ¬†getting larger on the hips just makes her look bigger- in the area NO woman wants to look bigger!!

Viola Davis in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

We all love her, and are rooting her for her amazing Role in “The Help”, however- The Oscars are not for making political statements about race. She decided to wear her hair “au naturale” – ie: not wearing a wig, because she’s trying to tell the world that being African American in Hollywood doesn’t mean you have to “hide who you are”, and not have to “be someone else”. WE GET IT. IT’S 2012. If anyone is judging you for that- THEY are the ignorant ones. White, asian, latina, every other race where extensions, hair pieces, etc…. You can too. I don’t need a public statement to appreciate who you are. Your acting is proof enough- don’t shove it down our throats.

Emma Stone in Jean-Baptiste Grenouille

Emma- why? I love you, and you’re adorable!!! But this dress looks JUST LIKE 2 other dresses we’ve ALREADY SEEN!! It looks Like Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga:

Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga...

Jennifer Lopez in Gucci at the Met

SEE EMMA??? PROVES MY POINT!!! Your Stylist isn’t doing her homework…. Fire her.

Shailene Woodley in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

Shailene Woodley in Vera Wang Oscars 2012

Shailene’s dress is WAY TOO MATURE for her here! She is too young! Have fun, look like a princess- not an old maid!! Valentino is beautiful and classic, but here- looks like aged and dowdy. This is a dress for Helen Mirren, or Meryl Streep….

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

As much as we all know Tom Ford is God, I’m still not 100% sure of this. On one hand- Her body is AMAZING- The column part of this dress is a perfect fit. The cape I love…. but as an ENTRANCE piece.. I’m not sure if I like it as an all evening dress. Think of her having to sit down, go to the bathroom, etc…. I just feel like it could be a nuisance- not an accomplice. I’m on the fence here…

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Can she get any more perfect? Just a simple black dress, with high slit- PERFECTION. that smile, that face. All she has to do is wake up, and put on a dress. Amazing. And, as always….. Best Dressed.

Meryl Streep in Lanvin Oscars 2012

Meryl is golden- literally. The first Oscar she won, she was wearing gold, so is she wearing again for good luck? I HOPE SO! She can do no wrong (acting – wise) however, she is dressed a little dated- it looks like they dug through the costume dept of…. can you say “Death Becomes Her?” Also- bra is showing. ūüė¶

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa Oscar 2012

Pretty and demure in front, backless in back…. we know she is not nominated, but as an A- list Oscar winning actress, …step it up a little. This dress is ill- fitting in the bust, and it looks like its worth of SAG awards. Or Emmys. Not OSCAR!

Grammys 2012, RIP Whitney Houston, Foo = Poo

First off, “Thank You” to LL Cool J for giving a great start to the awards, and offering kind words to Whitney Houston- the prayer was heartfelt. To Jennifer Hudson; Great job…I’m sure it was a difficult feat to tackle, and she did Whitney proud.

Best performance of the night goes to ADELE!!  WOO HOO! Her voice is BACK! And she can SING!!! Congrats to her many wins!

But then the Grammys went SH***Y.. WTF is with 2 performances by Chris Brown and 2 performances by Foo Fighters? Chris should just be a backup-dancer/ choreographer, and The Foo Fighters need to disappear. They sounded like garbage, the looked like garbage.

Foo Fighters = trash... or at least the end of civilized music

Also, something to mention: certain commercials.  the CHIPOTLE ad featuring Willie Nelson was AMAZING. Good job to them- their first ever commercial- and with a message (please youtube it everyone!). Chevy and Target also had an uplifting message to the younger generation, featuring singing youth enjoying music, and singing for their dreams.

So, without further ado- lets get to the FASHION!

The BEST of the night:

Rihanna in Armani

This is AMAZING. She said she collaborated with the designer on this dress, and they NAILED it. Her skin is OUT OF CONTROL PERFECTLY GLOWING. A lot of people are not fans of the new ‘do- but I love… you can never go wrong being BLONDE! ūüôā

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

FINALLY, stepping out in something more regal than a princess prom dress. Adding the updo- a nice change from the wavy long hair, or blunt bangs- she is channeling Nicole Kidman in Galliano from the Oscars!

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier

She looks AMAZING. The COLOR is “WOW” on her… however, I’m not sure of the peek-a-boo underwear… It’s very fashion forward, but I wish it was nude- creating the illusion of “what’s IN there? However, she looks great. It’s refreshing to see COLOR!

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.

Who knows why she’s there (presenting)- she is one of the HOTTEST women in Hollywood, and the world. She got to be a little more sexy, however I would have preferred a cream strappy shoe that matched the dress- elongating her legs- rather than the ¬†closed toe chunky heel that grounds her. EVEN SO- One of the best looks.

 

***********************************************************************

The WORST of the night:

"Sasha" ??

…Whoever the HELL that is. Everything about this is disgusting. Can you say, “Armenian girl from Glendale?” with that hair & makeup???? And the guns? GROSS.

Robyn

AKA UGLY. Nothing about this is worth talking about. Except this image proves even more dislike for her.

Bon Iver... WTF?

This creature BEAT OUT Nicki Minaj for Best New Artist????? REALLY??!? this is like last year’s upset with Esperanza Spaulding… WHO???? If noone has heard of you, then what the hell is going on? A BIG MESSAGE to this crazy looking “artist”: If you’re up for an award- DRESS like it. This belongs at the bottom of a swamp.

 

Cyndi Lauper in Jean Paul Gaultier

At first, I thought this was Christina Aguilera!! I mean, realllly?? We know she’s a “legend”, but this is a VMA outfit… not a Grammy outfit. The hair? Like 10 years ago. And she isn’t a young woman anymore… No need to be showing any leg. This is an Aadams Family Halloween costume.

Lady Gaga

The new Queen of Pop, Mother Monster, quite DOES in fact look like a Monster. This is too much.. ¬†I know, even for her. We expect this craziness from her, but I feel the tone of this years awards garners a need for something a little more subdued. Sometimes it’s about the night, not the person.

Nicki Minaj in Versace

I love Nick, but this is a little odd. And she showed up with an old man dressed up as a pope… hmm. ¬†People were saying it was “so amazing as a fashion moment”, but really- why? Because it has a huge Medusa/Versace logo on it?? ( I LOVE VERSACE, and have since Gianni was alive), but this is just dumb. What’s the point? ¬†It’s not amazing, it’s just A LOT of fabric. ¬†ūüė¶ ps: that performance was THE WORST thing I have seen in a long time. It is NOT what she should be presenting to America… how is she supposed to get any new fans now???

Katy Perry in Elie Saab

I will sum this up with Kelly Osbourne’s quote, “This is the perfect dress to match her blue hair”. BARF. Katy- go AWAY! Dress like a singer, not a Smurf. This is the UGLIEST hair. How does she keep a straight face thinking she looks “good” or “hot”???? YOU LOOK STUPID KATY!!!!

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald

The hair is too severe, the makeup is too much. The dress is too busy. This is another disaster, who let’s these people out their hotel like this? Is she moving into goth culture?

***********************************************************************

The “GUYS” … how it’s done horribly… and RIGHT ON!

rick ross

What IS this? This is THE GRAMMYS, this is an AWARDS SHOW. There is also an honoring to someone in the music business who just passed… WHERE IS THE RESPECT??? PUT ON AN APPROPRIATE OUTFIT!! An UGLY a** shirt, jeans and sneakers??? This ISN’T THE F***ING MALL!!!!!

Bruno Mars

This is an example of a horrible execution of a possibly nice look. The pants are TOO SHORT, and the fit is WAY to boxy- if you go with cropped pant- make it a slim fit! ¬†The jacket is also to boxy- the sleeves are bunching around his elbows… TOO MUCH FABRIC!!

Mario Lopez

Perfect example. Sharp suit, fitted well, and a great look for an awards show (when you’re a guest, and not one of the stars for the night). Hair groomed, shirt is nice being color other than standard white. Overall- this is how to dress guys.

***********************************************************************

COUPLES

Wiz Kahlifa and Amber Rose

Look Kelly (Osbourne) – SHE matched her dress to her hair too!!! And Wiz- I’m all for the jacket, but a white tank??? ¬†This dear readers, is how you do the awards show looking trashy. Or at least for the VMA’s. Again- these artists aren’t getting the fact that the GRAMMYS ¬†are supposed to have CLASS. If you’re invited- DRESS THE PART.

Adam Levine and Anne V

And the Best Couple of the Night/ Best Dressed Couple / How you’re suposed to look arriving to an awards show AWARD goes to…. Look at them, this is PERFECTION! His perfectly fitting Prada suit, with tie AND pocket square? A MAN! Her effortless hair, great shoes, and perfect Supermodel body in that “dress”?? ¬†A WOMAN!! If they keep this up, they are going to be one of THE couples to WATCH!

Golden Globes Fashion 2012- HITS!! and MISSES..

Last night was all about 4 things: Versace, Reem Acra, Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, and mermaid tails. Here are the Top 5, the Bottom 5, and all the “ehh” in between. Plus a surprise “like” at the end!

Ps: ¬†Even though I did like Lea Michele’s Marchesa dress, (the dress was gorgeous), I am not posting a photo of her. She and her POSING RITUAL are so desperate for attention.

TOP 5 BEST

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

The BEST of the night! SO good, we had to post her pic twice!! That FACE!, the way the dress was PERFECTLY FIT to her body, her makeup, her leg, her poise- Perfection. She is ROYALTY.

Elle Macpherson in Zac Posen

Stunning. HER face!, that HAIR, her BODY…….! She is 47?!?!? ¬†Exquisite….

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli

Goddess. Perfection. She is one of the most BEAUTIFUL women EVER! Look at this!!!! I can’t WAIT for Underworld Awakening- I’m Obsessed with her!!

Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald

Her HAIR was AMAZING!!! (love some good extensions!) Smokey eye- she was like a Disco Barbie- (love that too!). This dress was ALL beaded- photo doesn’t do it justice- dress was phenomenal!

Nicole Kidman in Versace

Usually, she is ok- always nice, but never the best… This dress- Definitely- fits, looks, and compliments her AMAZINGLY. Her hair looks wonderful.. Rounds out the Top 5 Best!

Top 5 WORST!!!!

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen

Kelly- as a loyal “ranger”, I’m quoting you when u like someone, but not their outfit: “I’m sorry to say, but this has to be my worst this week”. Really?! This is THE WORST of the night!!! WHAT COLOR IS THAT HAIR??!?! Lavender? Grey? She is a “host/expert” on E! Fashion Police, and THIS is what you come up with?!?!?! And this is NOT a mermaid tail- this is URSULA the OCTOPUS WITCH! Horrendous… !!! Your MOM looks younger than you!!!

Sarah Michele Gellar in Monique Lhullier

NO!!!! I LOVE her!!! Since Buffy, Cruel intentions, Scream, I know what you did last summer… WHY??? She hasn’t done anything forever, FINALLY comes back with one of my FAVE new shows, RINGER, and THIS is the “comeback” dress choice??? NO!!! Her face is SO AMAZING!!! She said that her daughter picked it out for her… THIS IS WHY YOU DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN CHOOSE YOUR DRESS! ¬†I was so SAD!

Freida Pinto in Prada

Nothing like wearing your drapes to an awards show. Did they not have time to find a REAL dress? and they just sewed together what was lying around the house? Awful.

Michelle Williams in Jason Wu

I was hoping that she kept her wig from “Marilyn”, so we had a change in THAT hair… but oh well. And this dress…. Purple velvet leopard??? when asked what kind of dress it was, she said, ” i don’t know, some sort of velvet.”…. IT’S CALLED “BURNOUT!” This dress, not so much….

Piper Perabo in... ?

Does anyone know who whose dress this is? More importantly, does anyone CARE? This is HORRIBLE. Like a big trash bag… Boring color, boring design, BORING. There are SOOOO many other options out there!!!!!!!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Charlize Theron in Dior Couture

Almost made top 5, but something was missing- don’t know what it is. No matter what- she’s GORGEOUS. I think the hair choice is a little young, (Young Adult, anyone?) but overall, Beautiful. Just not the “best.”

Jessica Alba in Gucci

A usual non-fave, she looks GREAT! the color is great, love the details,.. but the best part? her SKIN!!! It was GLOWING!!! Whatever she used- I WANT IT!! Good Job Jessica!

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen

California girl!!!! Love her hair, love her smile- always ADORABLE!!!!! The dress was a little bland… especially in the bust area: it looked a little DE-flated. But OTHER than that- SO CUTE!!!!! ūüôā I just love her personality, and big Barbie beachy Malibu hair!

Sophia Vergara in Vera Wang

(as Sophia says, “Sophia WONG”) She always looks good- HI, BANGING BODY- but this was a little lack luster… hair was boring and flat, dress was boring color…. I LOVE looking at that body, but now that she’s “somebody”, her stylist could give her a little more, “oomph!”

DISAPPOINTMENTS

Mila Kunis in Dior

She just got signed as a “face” of Dior- ¬†but this face looks like J-Woww… and THIS dress- out of ALL of DIOR’S DRESSES- is the one she chose???? I have 2 words- DROOPY. BOOBIES. As one of Hollywoods most beautiful faces, WHY?? Black Swan was LAST YEAR!!!

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy

She is SKYROCKETING through Hollywood- I LOVED her character in The Help, ¬†but this high neck -blown out hair makes her look like 80’s Dynasty… and NOT young and fresh in Hollywood! This dress DATED her, and made her look old.

Jessica Beil in Dolce & Gabbana

Speaking of “dating” one’s self- this looks like Prairie Home Companion. Or Old Maid. On top of that, this dress made her look like she had 3 tits. Not flattering.

Madonna in Reem Acra

Top half- boobs were so squished in- it was too tight! (Makeup was nice). Bottom half- that’s including the one fingerless glove (we get it already) was too much, to heavy. I know the gothic punk rock look she was going for, but I was less than impressed. ¬†C’mon ¬†Madonna!

Glenn Close in ?

All I have to say, is that top band across her chest looks like the bandaging to flatten out her boobs for her role as a man, she forgot to take it off, so they layered a strip of sequins on it… What IS that???

Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci

We get that she plays a goth girl in “Dragon/Tattoo” movies… that doesn’t mean she needs to keep dressing that way!!! Hasn’t her sister told her acting is ACTING- it’s a role- it’s pretend! Time to get out of character please!

And for EXCEPTIONAL CONSIDERATION….

Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackerman

For some reason- I love this. She is always a little coo-koo… dresses more “fashion”, then “appropriateness”, but This color, and concept, with the hair- I like! I think it’s because as soon as I saw this, I thought of Princess Diana. If she was still living- this would be AMAZING on her.

6 degrees of Celebrity Halloween!

As you know, Halloween is just around the corner- and everyone’s excited to be somebody else. Recently, at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales, Christina Aguilera made headlines- and not in a good way. GONE were the days of “sexy”, “xtina”, “stripped” or “Lady Marmalade”. ¬†She disappointed my entire generation (and repelled our current one) with this HORRIBLE outfit:

This is the reason my site is named what it is… WHO LIED TO YOU? Her Stylist, Manager, Boyfriend, Agent, Hair/Makeup team? NO ONE SAID ANYTHING, and let her go up on stage like this?????

Which got me to thinking- MAYBE Christina is such a HUGE fan of Halloween, that she was dressed up early- as a BLONDE SNOOKI!!!! The body is right- a lil, round meatball!

 

And then I found this pic of Snooki on the beach, and I know that she is going as LIL KIM for Halloween:

I mean, Snooki nails it! The same family of prints, cutouts, sunglasses, body type….

Which got me to thinking about Lil Kim, and what happened to her. And no, not her image battle between Nicki Minaj:

(Kim, you gotta let it go…there is no need to battle. Yes, Nicki took some risks and imitated you, but u gotta remember- you WERE first! I L.O.V.E.D you in the 90’s, and you will not be forgotten, but it’s time. Where have you been?? Nicki is younger, new, fresh, and… it’s a new era. Just remember: “Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery”.)

So back to Kim, and wondering where she went, I found her and her PSF (plastic surgery face):

Which THEN got me to thinking….. she wants to be Joceyln Wildenstein/The Catwoman for Halloween!

Joceyln must REALLY love Halloween, because her costume is (unfortunately) permanent. She must have LOVED that 80’s CBS show “Beauty & the Beast”… Because Ron Perlman was HER Inspiration!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! HOPE YOUR OUTFITS ARE JUST AS SCARY! ūüôā

 

L.A. tries Hamptons Style: The 2nd Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic

Yesterday was the 2nd Annual¬†Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic, held at L.A.’s Will Rogers State Park. The combination of Polo and Champagne on a sunny day turned LA into the Hamptons. Or at least, the best attempt to be the Hamptons.

The dress code for this event was 1920’s-1930’2; “reminiscent of the original days of Polo”. The Hamptons have done this FOREVER, so the “old-money, old-world -style” know how to dress right.¬†For the most part, this years attendees really made an effort, and got into the spirit of the event. I had a great time, and am DEFINITELY looking forward to next year!

For others- I hope they paid attention, and will come back next year and at least TRY. Here, I will show you CORRECT examples, and HORRIBLE attempts.

This girl ROCKED it. The bright and large hat, the light pleated full skirt, the vintage looking shoes, and small bag. PERFECTION. I loved her! (So did most guys, who couldn’t stop staring at her).

This girl also looked great. The oversized hat was perfect, small bag, and wedges. The sundress is a little “now”, but she gets an A for effort for sure!

Now take a look here. The 2 girls on the left: appropriate hats. The red Felt hat, the black with feathers…. and then this girl on the right: wearing a WOVEN STRAW CHINESE/VIETNAMESE HAT. How the hell does that make sense at a 1930’s themed Polo match??? NOPE, it DOESN’T.

This girl CLEARLY has no idea how to dress for Polo, let alone DAYTIME. Just because she threw on a hat doesn’t mean she’s “in” with the style. She was wearing a FULL ON SEE-THROUGH “dress” that looked like bedroom attire!!! Was she trying to go for the “VILLAGE SL*T” look? If so, then she nailed it.

These 2 women are also confused. The one on the left is dressed like a social- climber for a Beverly Hills “luncheon tea party” in a flowy maxi halter with crystals. Sure she may look “nice”, but how is this POLO wear? ¬†This is, again, an example of Countess LuAnne’s song “Money can’t buy you class”. Look at her cheap-looking friend in a SKIN-TIGHT dress with a keyhole detail showing off her lower back tattoo! Wow, really classy… ps: they are about 40years old. NOT APPROPRIATE.

When it comes to correct footwear for the ladies, you SHOULD know, that when it comes to grass- you wear WEDGES, NOT HEELS. Look at this photo- THEY ARE ALL SUNK INTO THE DIRT! This is how your shoes get ruined! (not that these girls had to worry- they were definitely NOT Louboutins)! Clearly, they have never been to a daytime wedding, or an estate luncheon. NO HEELS IN THE GRASS!!!!!!

This guy had THE BEST outfit on BY FAR. The wingtip oxfords, with the high socks, cropped/tucked pants, fitted vest over his button-down, and a great argyle tie (unfortunately can’t be seen in this shot). He was even playing badminton. Perfect.

The Sweater Boys! I loved these guys who sat next to us- the all had on button downs, with collegiate-style sweaters tied over their shoulders. Their shirts were tucked in, and wore wingtips and loafers. This crew was VERY Hamptons.

Even this little kid was dressed up! So cute…(awwww). Apparently, his parents are ON TOP OF IT when it come to the “appropriateness” of themed dress. A gingham Ralph Lauren button down, (with sleeves cuffed!) and a bowtie?? Perfect!

Here are 2 jerks who didn’t care at all what they looked like for the event (and probably everyday as well, looking at this). ¬†The guy on the left- JEANS??? The guy on the right- ill fitted polo, baggy shorts, and FLIP FLOPS??? Really guys- you couldn’t STEP IT UP for just ONE afternoon??? This is a Sunday Polo Match- not a football bbq. And not any Polo Match: The 2nd Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic!!! Next year, the dress code should be more strict: I would DENY these 2 guys entry!

This guy missed the mark COMPLETELY!!!! He is dressed for a SAILING REGATTA! There is NO WATER here! Blue & white striped sweater with red shorts is NAUTICAL- NOT POLO!!! Get your themes straight before leaving the house next time…

AND NOW FOR THE WORST MOMENT I WITNESSED AT THIS EVENT:

These 3 “women”… I called them FAKES, pulled out cheap champagne from their backpacks and were drinking this, instead of the (always amazing) Veuve, which is PLENTIFUL at the event!!! Why may you ask? Because they didn’t want to pay for the expensive champagne….¬†We overheard these ladies BRAGGING that they “shoved it deep in their backpack, so it wouldn’t be found if searched, and [that they brought] a cheap bottle in case it was taken away.” SIGHHHH…….

There was a simple rule for this event- no outside liquor. Clearly, since the event is SPONSORED by VEUVE , the only alcohol available was Veuve (no problem with that!) Sure the prices were double what you could get in the grocery store (bottles: Yellow was $90, Rose was $110) but IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD IT, THEN YOU SHOULDN’T BE THERE!!!! ¬†If you’re trying to live a lifestyle above your means, then STOP. You are just an EMBARRASSMENT to yourself!

I love that a woman next to me saw this happening and said, “that is SACRILEGE!”
