What’s black and white and red hot all over? Amber Riley ‘borrowing from the boys’ at a mid-week film screening.
Not every carpet calls for an over the top goddess gown, but that doesn’t mean the simplicity of a tailored high/low mix [read: $20 t-shirt and drool worthy embroidered skirt] can’t say LOOK AT ME NOW.
It’s no secret Mercedes Jones Amber Riley is my favorite #Gleek. True, I have an affinity for the entire cast, but something tells me this is only the beginning for one of ‘the most sangin’-est sistahs in Hollywood.’

The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced Wednesday that its spring 2012 exhibition, set to open on May 10, will be “Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: On Fashion,” a fascinating exploration of these two Italian designers from two very different eras, in a format inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” published in Vanity Fair in the 1930s.
The exhibition, which will be curated by the Costume Institute’s curator in charge,Harold Koda, and curator, Andrew Bolton, will feature approximately 80 designs by Schiaparelli (1890–1973) from the late 1920s to the early 1950s and the work of Ms. Prada from the late 1980s to present. The grand unveiling will be preceded by the annual Costume Institute Benefit Gala, cochaired by actress Carey Mulligan, designer Miuccia Prada, and Anna Wintour, the Editor in Chief of Vogue.Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com, will serve as honorary chair.
While the guest list for the party of the year is yet to be announced, Baz Luhrmann will be the exhibition and gala’s creative consultant. He will be joined by Nathan Crowley, who will serve as production designer, and Raúl Àvila, who has overseen the benefit’s magnificent decor since 2007.
