Okay.....SO.....I skipped the red carpet this year and crossed over the line...the press line that is (actually an iron fence...yikes!) and joined Michael (thanks for the cute press pass) to view the "carpet" proceedings!

Hmmmm....verrry interesting..made me rethink a few things. We tend to take these occasions way too seriously. We overthink, overdress and often overexpose (ouch) for the cameras...shouldn't we just be enjoying the celebration and having fun with the fashion???

I agree with Michael Kors ...there are no rules anymore but there's still taste and, here are my picks for glam, elegance & funk appeal.
