pure glamour!

i know it was last week (and life on the internet moves so fast it seems like last month) but i'm still buzzing over the met gala! the fact that it honored alexander mcqueen and the met's new exhibit of his designs (called "savage beauty") really made it special for me.  i love the mcqueen brand, and though i've obviously never met him, alexander {lee} mcqueen seemed like a wonderful person.  a woman who can testify to that claim is none other than the new mcqueen creative director and longtime friend of the designer, sarah burton.  not only did she help execute kate middleton's vintage mcqueen wedding gowns, but she helped tons of met gala atendeees wear iconic mcqueen pieces to their absolute best:

in other glamour news, the 2011 cannes film festival kicked off last night in cannes, france, and i personally can't wait to devour the 12 days of non-stop fashion.  there have already been some major looks (and some not-so-major looks) that i couldn't help but share with you -- hopefully it inspires you to keep up with the goings-on of the festival, and maybe take a few tips from these glamorous celebs!
