Red Carpet Rundown: The Met Costume Institute Gala 2012
Red Carpet Rundown: The Met Costume Institute Gala 2012Fashion meta-prom happened, you guys! The Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala is the magical event when the inner workings of the fashion world and the film world squeeze together tightly enough to make one night of glorious, spangly sausage.

Red Carpet Rundown: The 2018 Oscars
Red Carpet Rundown: The 2018 OscarsOnce again, the most high-stakes red carpet parade of all has come and gone.   As the broadcast (and the photo backdrop, and the ad bumpers) kept reminding us, this was the 90th anniversary of the Oscars. I actually watched all those things because I got talked into an in-person viewing party, which meant going through the whole business in real time.…
