In case you missed it, here’s what was on the blog this week.
- Monday: My Best Dressed/Wear What You Want winner from the 2016 Met Gala.
- Tuesday: The best of the rest at the 2016 Met Gala.
- Thursday: The 20th anniversary of the Broadway debut of Rent, plus Rent love from Hamilton.
- Friday: The Los Angeles Times has a major expose on how OxyContin was marketed in ways likely to lead to addiction.
There are two Met Gala attendees who I forgot to mention in my earlier post. I was intrigued by Solange Knowles’s David LaPort dress …
… mostly because the distinctive shape reminded me so much of her Giles dress from the 2015 Met Gala!
Solange was my Best Dressed/Wear What You Want winner last year, but I can’t do that look two years in a row. I do give her props for this year’s awesome latex leg warmers and the fact that she was wearing head-to-toe yellow, presumably in honor of sister Beyonce’s brilliant new album called Lemonade.
I also enjoyed Diane Von Furstenberg’s big hair adorned with butterflies, even though I don’t know what that look had to do with the “Manus x Machina” theme.
But I was surprised that this was NOT related to Philip Treacy’s iconic butterfly hat for Alexander McQueen. My first thought was, “Ooh, she’s wearing Treacy.” Oh well!
Over on Instagram, I featured some of my classic jewelry designs that I included in my Mother’s Day sale, including my diamond-encrusted Borgia poison ring.
Sugar, spice, and everything nice? Nah! Wendy’s 18K yellow gold and diamond Borgia ring is pretty and a tiny bit poisonous..

I’ve got to manually take everything out of the sale section, which I’ll be working on tomorrow, so act fast if you’ve got your eye on anything! You might be able to buy it before I go back to the normal price!
