A Pain in the Boob  

This past Wednesday, President Obama and our first lady, Michelle, hosted a White House dinner for Mexico's first couple, President Felipe Calderon and his wife, Margarita Zavala.

Michelle looked amazing in a shimmering blue gown designed by Chicago-based designer, Peter Soronen. She's also worn one of his designs to a Presidential Ball and their first black tie dinner (see below right). President Obama looked quite dapper too!

While Peter's designs look fabulous on her figure, I couldn't help but notice that the bodices don't fit that great. I'm 99.9% sure she has dents in her boobies at the end of the night.

Gilt Groupe: MiH Jeans

Gilt Groupe is having a sale on MiH Jeans. Bootcut, flare leg, cropped, wide leg: no matter how you like your jeans, MiH — formerly known as Made in Heaven — has the denim you desire. With more than a dozen varieties on offer, not to mention jean shorts, Chloe Lonsdale has done her dad (known in the 1970s as the U.K.’s Blue Jean King) proud with her latest collection.

Although there is small selection of 15 items, there is a good variety of styles. Jeans are priced at $59 - 89 from $174 - 279. I'm not particularly crazy about any of the items, but the wide leg trousers are worth checking out.

Red Carpet: 2010 Costume Insitute Gala  

Last night, the 2010 Costume Institute Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here is my rundown on the looks.

The Good

Coco Rocha - I wish we could redesign the body of the dress because it does nothing for the train. The train, however?! Looks like flowing water...gorgeous!

Ingrid Vandebosch - Wife of Jeff Gordon, is doing pregnancy fabulously!

Oprah Winfrey - Is in custom Oscar de la Renta. I love the color navy.

Anne Hathaway - This dress is a little Disney princess-ish, but she looks great.

Giselle Bundchen - In custom Alexander Wang. She looks hot!

Iman - Looks gorgeous (as usual) in Prada.

Jessica Alba - This Sophie Theallet gown is my fave of the evening!

Naomi Campbell - In Dolce & Gabbana. This woman does no wrong...when it comes to fashion ;-)

Natasha Poly - This Michael Kors gown has a very different silhouette with this blousy top and fitted skirt, but I'm loving it!

Cassie - Her entire outfit (minus the shaved scalp) is on point!

The Bad

Ivanka Trump - Again, the train doesn't match the body of the dress, but unlike Coco Rocha's, neither piece is really all that great...and quite frankly, the train is downright ugly. The dress fits her well though...

Lily Collins - The color of the gown is gorgeous, but the embellishments look like a child made a craft project out of it.

Margherita Missoni - This "dress" looks like a skirt and top...and neither are cute.

Blake Lively - I want to like the dress...but, its just not very flattering.

Christina Hendricks - Is that a squirrel on her shoulder???

Rachel Zoe - I don't know if this gown is just all wrong (mustard color velvet has never been hot), or if its just all wrong for her small frame.

The Ugly

Carey Mulligan - This look gets the frump-a-dump-dump award.

Joy Bryant - I just want to rip those darn sleeves off!

Mila Kunis - What was the method to this poofy madness???

Georgina Chapman - Note: Eva Longoria never disappoints, but she should've schooled her pal Georgina. All of this fluff and bows is just too much!

Katy Perry - Oh nooo! Is this a florescent dress? *barf*

Karolina Kurkova - This dress is just tackalicious...and the gold shoes don't help.

Kristen Stewart - I think somebody (well anybody w/some skin color) could've pulled this dress off...Kristen wasn't the one.

Miuccia Prada - Where do I start? I just hate it.

The Miscellaneous

Jennifer Lopez - Nothing to fantastic about the gown, but she is consistently gorgeous on the red carpet.

Anna Wintour

Diane Kruger - I'm really surprised (and personally disappointed) that Diane went for the understated look this time around. I so look forward to her amazing looks.

Chanel Iman - I don't particularly care for this fit on her, but this Michael Kors jumper is really hot and Chanel looks beautiful still.


Diddy - I think the pants are a wee bit too baggy, but Diddy will always be the man.

Penn Badgley - Now this is well-fitting from top to bottom...Penn looks great!
