Met Gala 2014: Standout Looks!

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-Met-Gala-2014

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual charity gala came and went like a whirlwind, and the stars really brought their A-game! Designers showed comradery by supporting their peers (i.e. Marc Jacobs wearing Saint Laurent.) Actors and musicians wowed in custom creations, some walking the carpet with the designers. However, the Victoria’s Secret models seemed to prove who does it best, wearing surprisingly stunning Top Shop and classic silhouettes (like Karlie Kloss in De La Renta, opera gloves and all.)

Being that this is THE fashion event of the year for Manhattan and, really, the fashion world, we appreciate over-the-top glamour. We loved seeing new silhouettes and color pairings, separates, and lots of volume. The Olsen Twins donned vintage Chanel, which was an unexpected twist that still offered lots of drama. Speaking of drama, we couldn’t keep our eyes off of Zac Posen’s room-filling gowns. Are favorites are Dita Von Teese’s neoprene nude and red fishtail gown and Liu Wen’s ocean waves.

Check out our favorites below. Images via NYT.

A Little Monday Inspiration

tumblr_msvdbvf1Wn1s4yngxo1_500

Considering that its Monday, and many of us are currently sitting at our desks, and maybe some are toiling away at a job that doesn’t really let them spread their creative wings, we figured there’s no better time for an inspiration post! Wether you are a designer, accountant, or a stay at home mom, there’s always room for some motivational images to jog the artist in you.

It’s that transitional time of year where the leaves are soon going to change colors and the weather will drop in temperature (yes, even in Miami!) New York Fashion Week has swept in like a whirlwind which means it’s time to darken those color palettes and gear up for the end of the year (while designers prepare for Spring.)  We here at Cecilia Gonzales are fully prepared, with an amazing line of gorgeous jewelry to complement any cool-weather ensemble. Check out some of the earrings HERE, on sale for a “secret” limited sale, just in time to stock up.

Here are some beautiful people, interesting photos and intriguing design/outfits that get our gears moving. We hope they inspire you as well!
