The only person worth mentioning was the lovely Carey Mulligan in Balenciaga:
She was the savior of the night. Unfortunately, my eyes cannot unsee what's been seen. The image of ugly tulle, over-embellished madness, and ugly plaid prints are going to be burned into my eyeballs forever. The horror. If there's some kind of revival of goth/punk and Scottish highland kilt inspired clothes, I'm going back under that rock I've been hiding under.

Monsters University had a tentative November 2, 2012 release date, which I told myself I would patiently wait for like any good fan who had already spent 10 years of her life desperately hoping for a followup to one of her favorite movies of all time (sense the sarcasm here). Unfortunately, because of Pixar's latest feature Brave (which hits theaters this Friday), it was pushed to 2013. That's a full 12 years after the release of the first movie. I can't even imagine how crushed I will be if this movie isn't awesome in every sense of the word. Sorry Disney Pixar, that's a heavy load to be bear, but that's just the way it is for this super fan.
The first teaser trailer was released today for the long awaited prequel to Monsters Inc. Watch the Monsters University trailer below and go to the movie's facebook page to view three alternate versions:

This year definitely did not disappoint in entertainment.
Rooney Mara in custom Givenchy: Of course she's wearing custom Givenchy. Of course she's killing it. Givenchy is such a no brainer for Rooney Mara. It's the perfect marriage of sexy and goth. My pick for best dressed of the night. I think it was the hair that did me over -- it's a sleek, chicest of chic chignon.
Carey Mulligan in Prada: Best dressed was a toss up between Rooney and Carey. Carey is always the picture of perfection. I literally had to look twice when I saw her in this dress. I just covet this look.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada: I will always, always, always be a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow on the red carpet. She knows exactly how to dress her body. This dress is a '90s minimalistic throwback in the style of Calvin Klein and it is fabulous in every sense of the word.
Scarlett Johannson in Dolce & Gabbana: I'm normally not a fan of tulle, mermaid styles, or an abundance of sparkly embellishment, but this somehow works on ScarJo. I think it's her body (read: her decolletage) that's mesmerizing me.
Christina Ricci in Zac Posen: First words they came out of my mouth when I saw this dress: OH MY GOD, YES. It was just icing on the cake that she walked down the carpet with Zac Posen. THIS is how you do daring on the Met red carpet.
Jessica Alba in Michael Kors: The simplicity of this dress and the styling is what makes this look so amazing. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it literally looks like Jessica Alba is dripping in gold.
Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga: Let me put this out there first. I love Balenciaga. I love love love Nicholas Ghesquiere and all the work he's done at Bal, but this is just atrocious on Kristen. While I appreciate the fact that she's wearing Balenciaga, particularly since she's the new face of their fragrance, but this is just so wrong and I am so sad. So very, very sad. This is what I would imagine you would wear if you threw an '80s themed party where your entire getup had to be purchased from Goodwill or stolen from the back of your mom's closet.
Emma Stone in Lanvin: First thing I want to know: how did she sit down in this thing? Does it not feel like your sitting on a bed of crushed Christmas ornaments? These are the important questions I have for Emma Stone. I'd also like to know what compelled her to wear this to the Met. It's such a shame too, because I usually love what she wears on the red carpet.
Florence Welch in Alexander McQueen: I'm sure this is self explanatory.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino: Oh my lord, SJP. WHY? I tried looking at this dress from several angles, and not one is forgiving. I'm sure all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder/Little House on the Prarie references have been exhausted at this point, so I'll just stop here.
Mary Kate Olsen in The Row: I wonder where MK stored her sickle for the night. The grim reaper is coming for you all in the form of an Olsen twin.
Jessica Chastain in Louis Vuitton: Jessica Chastain is a fiery ginger with a crazy body, but from my vantage point in this photo, she's just a red head. I wish this dress wasn't so wrinkly. I wish this dress wasn't so close in color to a pair of awful denim jeans. I wish the cut wasn't so unflattering. I wish the beautiful Jessica Chastain had not worn this dress. I wish, I wish.
No Doubt released their first webisode today for their long awaited new album, which finally has a release date now -- September 25th, 2012! Do you understand what this is doing to me? A girl who grew up in the '90s and worshiped Gwen Stefani? It's making me revert back to my teens! I grew up listening to the sweet, sweet, ska punk sounds of No Doubt. I went to their reunion tour in May 2009 so not only have I been waiting 3 years for their new album to come out, but I've been waiting since Rocksteady's 2001 release, which was their last major studio album. I am so ready for this!

1. On my vanity: Audrey Hepburn print, Tizo Design pink lacquered jewelry box, Chanel beauty box where I store my everyday jewelry, and a raw amethyst crystal rock sitting atop an Ikea vase / 2. Newly acquired jewelry and a vintage suitcase / 3. Flip clock and a hand painted canvas inside a Missoni frame / 4. Hello Kitty for Sephora / 5. Balenciaga Velo in Grenadine sitting happily on my desk / 6. DIY pendant lamp fixture, tutorial from IkeaHack / 7. Anthropologie book candles / 8. Chanel Collections and Creations by Daniele Bott and Fujifilm Instax camera / 9. Zara military jacket with leather sleeves

Let's examine the evidence:
- My iPhone case is pink. Let me be specific. Pink crystals. To be fair, they're pretty badass crystals.
- I spend enough at Sephora to always be eligible for V.I.B. status.
- I know what V.I.B. status is.
- I like buying pretty frames and collecting coffee table books, like Daniele Bott's Chanel Collections and Creations.
- I have an unhealthy handbag obsession. The Purse Forum is my second home.
- Things in miniature and/or pastel tones give me the giggles or elicit squeals.
Alright. I've had enough. I think the evidence is pretty incriminating. I'm pretty damn girly. And you know what? That's totally okay. So I may not know all the rules to professional basketball or be able to survive in the wild Bear Grylls' style, but you can sure as hell bet I'm the first person anyone comes to when they want to buy a new purse or want to plan an awesome party. Damn right.
These are the things I'm currently coveting:
Topshop Mel Leather Brogues, $64.
Chanel Special Edition Three Book Set by Francois Baudot and Francoise Aveline, $750.
Macaron Limoges Box: $96 for the box or $10 each. Tell me these aren't the most awesome things you've ever seen.
Zara Floral Print Dress, $89.90. Reminds me of a Mary Katrantzou or Alexander McQueen print, except without the hefty price tag.
Proenza Schouler PS1 iPad Case, $685. So it costs more than an actual iPad, no big deal.
