at the mcqueen gala, the men (and our honorable mentions)

May 3, 2011

As the pics from the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Costume Institue Gala have trickled in, everyone’s showing images of the ladies in their wonderful attire (see: Vogue‘s best dressed), so — aside from the Brookyn (fab!) and Serena (oy) — we’ve instead opted to showcase the dashing gents who attended as arm candy to their equally gorgeous gals-in-tow; as designers to the muses; or on their own.

But still, we couldn’t resist: the end of our list has some honorable lady mentions: Michelle Williams in Miu Miu; Janelle Monae in Chanel, Chloë Sevigny in McQueen, and Karolina Kurkova in a Jean-Paul Gaultier dress that gives Venus Williams‘ underwear gimmicks a run for its money. As for Beyoncé‘s furry boobs, we’re sorry. Look away if you have to!

Photos: The men of the McQueen gala, and then some…

oof.

Watched a little too much coverage of the royal wedding, did we?

Queen Tangerine with a dash of pink: Brooklyn Decker wore Michael Kors at last night’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

we want her to go to there

Bethanie Mattek-Sands needs to take her eyeblacking to the next level. Can we make a suggestion?

American on clay: At this week’s Mutua Madrid Open, she’s continuing her run into the single’s draw by beating qualifier Vania King 6-0, 6-2 in the second round. This, of course, after taking out Ana Ivanovic in three sets to start out the event. BMS’ll face the winner of the all-Italian battle between Schiavone and Errani. (Does Sara have the same Fed Cup beef as Vinci?)

Bracket: Mutua Madrid Women’s Singles.

We know he got his own post-win post (and a Trophy Watch mention), but it couldn’t hurt to put up a pic of Kolya actually hoisting his BMW Open trophy for, yknow, posterity’s sake. TSF hasn’t seen him smile like this in a while.

We’re pretty good at keeping you updated on what’s going on at the adidas store in SoHo. But for TSF East, it’s part of our almost-daily route to and from the gym (might have to make that daily before summer hits… ), so we’ve always got our eye on what the folks at the German co. are putting out on the corner for fans to take in. Blank canvas: For now, it looks as though the folks at adidas are switching things up on Houston St. Above, a shot from later in the night and below, earlier. Two fun looks at the calm between storms. More: Missed Katy Perry for adidas? Photo shoot here

trophy watch: furry nice to see you

May 3, 2011

For your vest interest: We were all set and ready to make a trophy-bearing Nole, now 27-0 this season, our lead picture on this week’s Trophy Watch. That was until we saw this gem of a photograph with Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario with Barcelona doubles winners Iveta Benesova and Barbara Zahlova Strycova. We want, Arantxa! She’s holding her 2-year-old daughter … Arantxa. Now that we know you wear fur and have named your child after yourself, we must come to Barcelona and sip champagne with you, ASV. Loves it! Oh right, and Roberta Vinci won the singles crown. See her boring troph(ies) here.

Kissing the fellas: How about that artwork on Juan Martin del Potro‘s Estoril trophy? We sure dig it. The painted (porcelain?) cup is what we’d sip our champagne out of while hanging out with a fur-wearing Arantxa in Barcelona. JMdP overwhelmed Fernando Verdaso 6-2, 6-2 in the men’s final.

No one but Nole: While Novak won his home event for the second time in three years, he was aided by Janko Tipsarevic, a valid challenger who had to skip out of their SF match up because of injury. In the final, Djoko took down Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (4), 6-2.

One more shot of Arantxa in our favorite new outfit and Anabel Medina Garrigues’ crystal bowl in Estoril. (more…)
