Nobody’s more punk than Punky Brewster, so we pulled a few strings and got a sneak peek at her Met Ball look for Monday’s opening of “Punk: Chaos to Couture”. Lovely, non? Brewster is breaking all the punk rules and going for a formal look in a vintage Dior Couture gown that was first red carpeted by another childhood star, Ashley Olsen, at the Met’s 2011 McQueen opening.
CondÃ© Nast Entertainment unfurled its second phase of video channels based on its toniest newsstand titles yesterday at a Newfront presentation, first targeting the rather disparate crowds of fashionettes and tech titans. The newest spate of glossies to go the original programming route include Vogue, which will bow in video form next Wednesday, and Wired, which will unroll a channel on May 15.
The Hamptons season doesn’t kick off for a few more weeks, the Met Ball hubbub is mere days away, and there’s a brief lull in the springtime music festival circuit (next up, Governor’s Ball, anyone? Or for the more rugged among us, Bonnaroo, if you dare?). What’s a chicette in dire need of a break from the daily grind pounding New York pavement to do? A Vegas jaunt, perhaps…Sure, the temps ratchet up to the mid-90s during the day, but all the better for some mandatory poolside lounging (and definitely better than the way-past-100 degree climes that await come summer). For a hearty dose of party avec the R&R factor, the Hard Rock Hotel is now two weeks into its Sunday pool rager, Rehab, which has been turning a typically lazy and recoup-centric day into an arguably bigger bash than the eve(s) before it.
