Last Year, Kate Moss wore a dress from Topshop (yes, we know it was her own design, but still) to the Met Ball - the party of the year and the most appropriate time to wear couture. A few weeks ago, Sarah Jessica Parker, that ultimate paragon of the cheap dress / expensive shoes look showed up to Matthew Broderick's premiere in a dress from Bitten. It's one thing to go on Oprah wearing a $40.00 outfit and $700.00 shoes to promote your new line - but the red carpet's a bit of a different scene. And this is the woman who not too long ago wouldn't step out on a red carpet in anything less than couture. Now she's in a $10 cotton sun dress? Is this what she meant when she said she and her friends compete over who spends the least on their outfit? And then last Thursday, Vanessa Von Bismarck, PR Princess and real life Countess wore Banana Republic to a Lulu DK event at Antony Todd. Her wedding was documented inVogue and the dress was custom made Derek Lam. But now that she's pregnant she decides mid-priced career wear is more her speed? As far as we know, she is not designing a line for BR. We love Banana and Topshop, but given the choice, Britt would wear Vivienne Westwood, Natalie would go straight to Matthew Williamson, and I would be on the phone with Thom Browne. Maybe if we wore Chanel Couture on a weekly basis, we too would be jonesing for a cheap and chic red carpet look. How about you? --BRETT KANE
