NOTES FROM THE SCHMOOZE PATROL

Welcome to the only group on this site where you can talk about everything and the kitsch n sink. You are now in the NEWS and SCHMOOZE Zone. 

Members get to decide what they want to talk about.  This is the right place for announcements, news, bragging,  friend stuff, sharing and caring and whatever else you want to talk about.

If you need help on how to understand this site...please go to the HELP Group (see top of your page).  If you need help with the identification and evaluation of an item you found, inherited, bought please use the Whadja Find Group.

As the NEAT FREAK, I will try hard to keep this group as NEWS and SCHMOOZE. I ask members to help me keep the group tidy. If you see a post that belongs in Whadja Find or somewhere else, please politely tell the poster they are in the wrong  place and guide them to the best place to post. Anyone want to help me keep this group neat and organized? I sure could use some helpers(s) Please email me at Dianne@cdiannezweig.com

The Met Gala Red Carpet report on VOGUE is pretty good, with some video clips:

Tom, not to worry too much about "bodies". Some on the Met red carpet shouldn't even be in the outfits they are wearing..

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on May 5, 2016 at 9:25am

Yep, am getting old. None of my crowd had the bodies for hot pants and my wife didn't like it when I looked at young ladies who were wearing them.

Comment by Liz Bryman on May 5, 2016 at 7:56am

Dianne and Kathy Small, you are both right. It's a so called "hot pants" disco outfit from circa 1968-70, no particular designer label (I own the outfit so I should know). Has a long zipper in the back for getting in and out of it. (Tom, you're getting old if you forgot what "hot pants" looked like.)

Like the outfits worn at the recent (May 2) Metropolitan Museum Gala party, it is not meant to sit down in but disco dancing was feasible. These outfits were mercifully a short-lived fashion fad; just think of bathroom trips.

For the collectible vintage looks of the future look no further than the Met Gala celeb party guests' garb as they arrived on the red carpet:

Courtesy The NY Times:

100 photos, keep clicking on right, don't glaze over. BTW, the "holy" jeans worn by one famous designer are his own creation. No, really, they are!

The theme this year dealt with modern machine-made parts of clothing. Which is why some guests look like extras in a Star Wars movie...

Diane, looks like Capt Kangaroos Bunny Rabbit

Comment by kathy small on May 4, 2016 at 11:46pm

I meant "it" looks like a disco ball to me. Duh.

Comment by kathy small on May 4, 2016 at 11:43pm

I agree, I looks like a disco ball to me!
