Not to be completely biased but… black&white truly are the greatest colors on this planet! There isn’t a color combo that I love more than this one. These colors are so simple, yet always trendy and chic, which is why it is consistently a popular style on the red carpet! Last year at Cannes, b&w was everywhere. Daisy Buchannan (a.k.a. Carrie Mulligan) rocked the carpet in her unique Vionnet gown. Emma Watson kept it simple and glam in Chanel while Jennifer Lawrence opted for a strapless Dior piece. I mean when JLaw wears it, you knows it’s fashionable.These classic colors have, again, been spotted at Cannes this year , so we’ll see what the rest of the days brings us.
Then there’s this year’s Met Gala, in which the theme was Charles James inspired “White-TIe”. From RiRi to Cara, Hollwood’s finest were decked head to toe in b&w. Queen B wore a sheer, beaded, Givenchy Haute Couture piece in contrast with her man, Jay-Z, who opted for a white tux (pre-elevator madness). Here are some of my fave black and white looks from the Met Gala…
Cara Delevingne in Stella McCartney
Victoria Beckham wearing her own line
SJP in Oscar de la Renta
Rihanna in a white Stella McCartney gown contrasting with her black locks
Charlize Theron in Dior Haute Couture
The red carpet was overwhelmed b&w at the Met

How to rock the B&W trend everyday!
We might not all be in need of a $$$ designer gown this summer, but that doesn’t mean we all can’t stay fashionable in b&w! Simple b&w pieces are a wardrobe staples so don’t be afraid to invest a bit! Making the look all your own is super easy by adding twists like leather accents, fun graphic tees, or even spikes! Hints of neon? Perfect to break the constraints of bland b&w!
I know I’ll definitely be all over this trend.
