Mark Your Calendars: FLOTUS Set to Open Anna Wintour Costume Center

Every year, big-name stars attend the Met Gala – but this time, the turnout is projected to be beyond A-list. According to WWD, First Lady (and two-time Vogue cover star) Michelle Obama will cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of the Met’s new fashion wing, The Anna Wintour Costume Center. And just like that, my anticipation for the Met Gala skyrocketed.

Michelle Obama to Open Anna Wintour Costume Center

I mean, sure, I was already excited for the white-tie dress code and the Charles James exhibition. But this? This is bigger than big. And in addition to cutting the ribbon, the First Lady will also be speaking at the morning’s ceremony. So a stunning day dress is definitely going to happen. My bet is on something black and white, especially after she went monochromatic on a recent trip to China.

Now, it’s not certain if she will attend the evening Gala (bummer), but regardless, this is one FLOTUS sighting you won’t want to miss.

Head over to WWD for more on Michelle Obama’s Met appearance.

Guess Who Nabbed a Seat at the SOTU

Who got to see FLOTUS and POTUS live at the SOTU last night? (For all of you abbreviation-phobes out there, translation: Michelle, Barack, State of the Union. You’re welcome.) If you said, “Of course, it has to be someone from Duck Dynasty,” you’d be right. Star Willie Robertson attended as a guest of his friend Rep. Vance McAllister of Louisiana. Yep. Wonder if he brought his duck call.

Red Hot: Stylish Celebrity Couples We Love

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?

Five-Minute Pow-Wow: Rachel Roy

Rachel RoyWildly chic and completely on the pulse of women’s sartorial cravings, Rachel Roy is a force to be reckoned with. The New York-based designer has made quite a name for herself in the fashion world, turning out collection after collection of strong, incredibly wearable pieces. Here, we sat down with the fashion favorite for a few questions.

Rue La La: We imagine you were born stylish. Tell us how you got your start in fashion.
Rachel: I had wanted to be a designer since I was 8 years old. While back-to-school shopping, I realized that I wasn’t happy with the selection I had to choose from and decided to do something about it myself. My first job was in retail at the age of 14, and I’ve worked in the industry ever since. When I moved on to the more behind-the-scenes side in licensing, I got a firm understanding of the business side of fashion which helped me to build the foundation to eventually start my own company.

Rue La La: You always look so put-together. Do you have any guiding rules for your personal style?
Rachel: I love mixing things – hard and soft, masculine and feminine. I mix prints, colors, and textures and take risks by trying new things. My style tends to lean toward the classic side, but there is always a twist. If I have a simple, feminine dress on then I will wear a strong statement piece of jewelry to balance it out.
