Fall Into the Memories

Posted in advertising, commercials with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2009 by melsanie

So, thedith and I were talking and we’ve decided that this September has been especially crummy.  Everyone is all “blurg” and there’s no real reason, slash there is and it’s because the planets are wack according to astrology.  So, while I’m moping about I thought about being mellow and lame, which led me to this youtube wonder:

Which then led to these:

Dear Gap,

Please bring back these random commercials.  They were pointless yet entertaining.  What’s not to love about singing or dancing models?  Well, a lot actually, but I mean it’s better than those annoying free credit report commercials, which I’m not even going to link to because I hate them so much.  So Gap, think about it.

Kisses and Bubbles,

Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow

Tonight was the night of the Met Gala Event.  Because I’m not a fashionista I had to look up the reason for this red carpet.  According to Wikipedia, the gala’s purpose is to fundraise for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, which contains over 80,000 costumes and accessories.

Due to the fragile nature of the items in the collection, the Costume Institute does not maintain a permanent installation. Instead, every year it holds two separate shows in the Met’s galleries using costumes from its collection, with each show centering on a specific designer or theme.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the new exhibit, The Model as a Muse: Embodying Fashion, which “focuses on iconic models of the twentieth century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring the fashion of their respective eras.”

Well, it looked like the attendees had fun with the theme.  Some of the actors/singers/models/designers/socialites were innovative and stylish while some were just out of left field crazy or yawn worthy.  Below, my ever so astute and well thought out (read: first impressions) of the over 66 looks from tonight.

Yay:  Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Ashley Olsen, Bar Rafaeli, Gisele, Marion Cotillard, Kim Raver, Molly Sims, Liv Tyler, Anne Hathaway, Marisa Tomei, Chanel Iman, Iman, Jessica Alba, DVF, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Gugino.

Yikes: Emma Robert, Shalom Harlow, Katy Perry, Mary-Kate Olsen, Brooke Shields, Kirsten Dunst, Madonna, Leightom Meester, Blake Lively, Rose Byrne, Hilary Swank, Rihanna, Paulina Porizkova, Elizabeth Banks.
