Runway Review: Ohne Titel, I'm Obsessed

Today at Milk Made Studios I discovered Ohne Titel, which by far was one of my favorite shows of the season to date.  Anna Wintour watched without her sunglasses and occasionally gave nods of approval and I sat front row directly across from Anna Dello Russo.  The collection was full of strong colors and graphics, all together a feeling of optimism. I arrived early for the show and hung out at the American Express VIP Lounge where Kenneth Tepper of the Ric Pipino Salon threw some curls in my hair.  I swear it was the curls that landed me the front row seat!

Pistachio and buff hues were complimented with bright red, cobalt blue and yellow colors and each look that came out was more jaw dropping than the next.  This was the first season the designers, Alexa and Flora showcased prints and really embraced evening wear.  My favorite look was a red gown with a winged back worn with red gladiator flats.

Post show I was able to talk to the designers about the collection and they were super excited that they had such a good turn out.  Two words:  Anna Wintour.  "We're going to Paris next,"  they exclaimed. Turns out, this fashion show was just a preview of what's to come. Vogue and the CFDA is sponsoring Ohne Titel and sending them to Paris for the months of September and October to showcase their collection.  Lucky ladies!

Best of Beauty at the Met Gala

Tonight's Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala brought out fashion's finest to feature the museum's new exhibit, "American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity." Kate Moss showed up on the arm of Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Tory Burch, Margherita Missoni, Kate Hudson, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake all walked the red carpet amongst other notables.

Here are a few of BeautySweetSpot's Best of Beauty from the night (and they're all blonde!):

Known for keeping things simple, Claire Danes took it up a few notches tonight and worked the red carpet like never before.  By adding volume to her blowout and smoking out her eye she turned into a sex kitten.  Meow!

Kate Bosworth rocked old school Hollywood glam.  It was an appropriate look for the evening and made her stand out from the rest.

Pulling her hair back off of her face into a sleek updo allowed Blake Lively to show off her fresh face and radiant beauty.  She got it right by highlighting the inner corners of her eyes with white shadow, layering black mascara and adding a pop of color with a fuchsia lip.
