The theme of this year’s Met Gala, celebrating the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture, was, fittingly, punk rock.

The legendary couturier Christian Lacroix will design a capsule haute couture collection of just 15 pieces for the soon-to-be-relaunched house of Schiaparelli, to be presented during couture week in Paris this July. Italian businessman Diego Della Valle (the owner of Tod’s and Roger Vivier) has been on the hunt for a Creative Director for the house since he announced the relaunch of Schiaparelli last May, appointing ex-model and muse Farida Khelfa as a spokesperson not long afterwards (presumably in the hope that she would whet everyone’s appetites in the interim.)
Entertainment Weekly provides tips on how to rock the gift lounge, a sheer outfit, a sundress (see Busy Philipps, Florence Welch, and Lea Michele) and looks to avoid (oops, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, David Hasselhoff). Coachella is a massive pop-and-rock music festival in the southern California desert.
Stars dazzled on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night in Los Angeles, wearing shades of red and blue, along with neutral tones — and practically everything in between. “Silver Linings Playbook” actress Jennifer Lawrence opted to wear her hair pulled back as she walked the red carpet in a strapless white Dior Haute Couture gown, reminiscent of a bride’s dress.

The Daily Beast probably has it right: ‘There were few who anticipated a fashion triumph, but, even allowing for the limited expectations, Rihanna’s collection for River Island as brought forth in London tonight was a horror show. The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them. True, there were some consolations. For example, if you really, really like belly buttons, if you are totally nuts for navels, then this could be the collection for you.
