The Den's Absolute Fave Fashionista.
Anna is eager to redeem herself after last year's misstep.
Girls, it's that time of year. Tonight is the Met Gala, Fashion's Super Bowl, although recent years have been disappointing. Den Fave Anna Wintour serves as Official Hostess and has carte blanche over everything from guest list to floral arrangements. My Estella & I have always been on opposite sides of the Anna Divide. 'Stella likes Anna but considers her personal style a 'mess'. GSL thinks she's an All Time Great and of course, he's right. Anna does lay an egg from time to time but all the Greats are entitled to have an occasional off day.
Anna from last year, As I noted then. you clip those shrubs down by 2/3 and this would have been the crown jewel
of the Costume Institute's permanent collection the following day.
The theme for tonight's Met Gala is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. This doesn't sound promising does it.

It is every Fashionista's dream to make The Den's Met Gala Honor Roll (see last year's Honor Roll here.) so by Wednesday we shall grant immortality to several ladies who really shine tonight.
|Anna is not one of those silly girls who whack off her hair every time she and boyfriend have a tiff.|
It's Anna's party and she can cry if she wants to or listen to GSL's sage counsel.
|What Anna does better than everybody else is work interesting colour and texture and stays away from bore me to tears black. As Den Stylist Extraordinaire, Trudye, has noted, she'd do well to add a smile every now and then.|
Anna back in the day when she apparently had GSL on her mind. You're right Trudye, a smile really does enhance her whole look.
|Estella was first to introduce GSL to Laura Ashley many decades ago and I absolutely love the look of this Laura Ashley type frock and notice how lovely she looks; in contrast to her usual forbidding vibe.|
|With beautiful daughter Bee Shaffer. Any woman who's a devoted Mum has GSL as a fan.|
|Another thing that just came to my attention; in addition to working colour and texture so well, Anna ACCESSORIZES beautifully and not just with pieces that lean on provenance to bestow glamour. The Magnificent MaiTai introduced GSL to the power of accessories. I ordered one of MaiTai's fab sequined stoles in rose now en route for Mother's Day which will look preternaturally lovely on my dear mother and those wonderful ladies at church (several being my former Sunday School teachers) will shower her with praise....especially when they find out how she got it.|
