When Going Green Goes To Your Head
I’m all for saving the planet and going green; I just don’t take the whole “green” thing literally- as in to dress like a shrub or put plants in my hair. And while I can barely bring myself to wear florals, leave it to Nicki Minaj, Anna Wintour, Natalie Massenet and Michelle Harper to show up in shrub-like attire for the annual Runway To Green charity auction in New York. I know what you’re thinking…Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour in the place? Yes, that’s right; but this is fashion, where it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a green beehive to a “green” event. I’m of course talking about Nicki Minaj, her look was the talk of the evening and her hair stood straight during her rockin’ runway performance.
As for the other attendees, Anna Wintour arrived in a leather sleeved high contrast floral number from Balenciaga’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection. Obviously, Wintour cares about the environment because her dress is full of flowers...duh!
Then there’s Michelle Harper who donned a green leafed head piece for the evening. Her head was in full bloom and the bright foliage couldn’t be missed!
Lastly, Net-a-Porter founder, Natalie Massenet blended in a little too well with the wall. I actually love her dress, I just wish it would’ve stood out more in this photo.
If this event showed me anything, it’s that attending a charity event and bidding on designer auctions isn’t enough to help save the planet…you have to dress green too!
