Ex-Vogue editor was ‘disappointed’ in Met Gala red carpet looks

Published

on

Seems some stars need to brush up on their fashion history.

Journalist Alexandra Shulman, who served as Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue for 25 years and is now a strategic advisor at online fashion marketplace Atterley, says she wasn’t impressed by some of the red carpet looks at this month’s 2022 Met Gala.

“I thought the theme was a brilliant one — the idea of ‘gilded glamour,’” she tells Page Six Style. “So I was a little disappointed how few people really went for the authentic Gilded Age outfit, which I’d hoped they would.”

Continues Shulman of the dress code, “I felt that it was a very appropriate theme for the exhibition, which is [about] American fashion. And, you know, the Gilded Age was all about the heady days of New York. So it all made sense. I just would have liked to have seen some more really beautiful — rather than eccentric — looks.”

The editor’s opinion echoes that of fellow fashion luminary (and Met Gala honorary chair) Tom Ford, who recently said the fancy fête has “turned into a costume party.”

Speaking with Amy Odell for her book “Anna: The Biography,” Ford continued, “That used to just be very chic people wearing very beautiful clothes going to an exhibition about the 18th century … You didn’t have to dress like a hamburger.”

Shulman does think a few select celebs nailed the prompt this year.

“I liked Blake Lively’s outfit; that was beautiful”, she says. “The model Adwoa Aboah looked lovely in pink Tory Burch. I really liked Kendall Jenner, who was in this enormous black Prada. And I kind of liked David Lauren, who was in white tie and tails with torn jeans; I thought that was a very good, Lauren-esque take on American fashion.”

As for Kim Kardashian — who dominated headlines by showing up in Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown from 1962 — and the others who opted for similarly “naked” dresses on the big night?

“I think that there’s been a real shift … to costume dressing and the emphasis being on how much you stand out. And I think that’s very much to do with the social media age that we live in,” Shulman says.

“You know, you’re trying to capture people’s attention, and then people are trying to get the clicks. So if you wear just a really lovely pink dress, it doesn’t have the standout quality of some of those, say, near-naked Burberry outfits Riccardo [Tisci] did.”

The internet is also what led Shulman to her current role at Atterley, which stocks stylish wares from over 400 independent boutiques from across the globe. Brands on offer range from luxury labels like Balenciaga and Valentino to contemporary ones such as Stine Goya and Ganni.

“With online shopping, there is a danger that you go crazy,” she says. “But I’m a great believer in instinctive buying, and that when you see something and you love it, you should buy it.”

Right now, Shulman’s gravitating toward pieces that are bright and bold.

“I’m sort of loving all those balloon sleeves that are around at the moment,” she says. “And the color, the richness of color and pattern, which is so joyful after two years of a pandemic.”

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
