Preps of Several Types at the Met Gala

Hello-Hello… we hope all those sharing the Monday from YKW (You Know Where) with us are enjoying a better day today. Honestly.

We have a number of bullet points today, beginning with this update on another role for a Gossip Girl star:

  • Gossip Guy Ed Westwick will be guest-starring on the Showtime comedy Californication, during the show’s third season.

In other G2 news, Leighton Meester was out and about last night, at the Met’s Annual Costume Institute Gala.

Co-starring actress Blake Lively was also at the big do. (If co-star Penn Badgley, Ms. Lively’s real-life romantic interest, was at the party, we have not yet read or heard about it.)

Unfortunately, we can’t tell you who they are wearing, we just don’t know. There were loads of pretty people (but none so fair as the one and only I Pick Pretty, of course) at the gala, including some real-life preps:

Movin on, yesterday’s CBS story on the First Lady wearing her Lanvin sneaks to the Capital Area Foodbank only served to add to the growing hubbub about the footwear.

The high-end shoes run approximately $540, and as one might imagine, the cost of the sneakers is the issue, not their appearance.

If interested, Barneys still shows several different colors available online.  In other First Lady fashion news, Mrs. Obama was spotted doing the “I Love it so Much I Bought Two” waltz again, this time in the J. Crew Featherweight Cardigan. Yesterday she wore the cardigan to a Cinco de Mayo event at a local school in the District…

For those favoring this look, run, run, run to Crew; the website still shows both colors in stock, and better yet, the price is discounted almost fifty percent less than it’s original pricepoint. The cardigan is now $99.99, it originally was $188.

A few more SOTTS:

  • Filene’s Basement filed for bankruptcy yesterday, the Chapter 11 kind.
  • The first Nordstrom slated for Alabama is not going to happen, at least for the time being. The store was planned for Birmingham.
