The unofficial after party for the Met Ball was held at (where else?) the Top of The Standard at the Standard Hotel last night. Singer Bruno Mars was there (naturally), and he knew he was in the presence of fashion royalty when he bowed down to the queen herself, Naomi Campbell. She loved every minute of it.

Now that she's a household name in America, all eyes are on Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton. The freshly appointed fashion superstar was obviously at the Met Gala last night, and apparently, she didn't do interviews on the red carpet, but that's OK. What on earth would anybody have to ask her about, anyway?

Alexa Chung makes her second appearance on the cover of British Vogue, as photographed by Josh Olins. The mag teases that Chung reveals an obsession for horseback riding when she was younger, but now, she harbors a love for (are you sitting?) making things. Sounds like a must-read!

That's quite a shot of Cameron Diaz on the June issue of Elle UK. Everything about this cover gives us a Madonna vibe (particularly the crotch shot), and we're very impressed with the ultra-toned arms of Ms. Diaz. Sexy! You'd make Madge proud.

Neapolitan owner Kelly Golden, our favorite correspondent from Chicago (that hell of a town!), is back with more dish from the Midwest.
"So it's probably no surprise that one of the most sought-after items these past two weeks has been a chic raincoat. After enduring a very dreary April, Chicagoans were flocking to neapolitan for some great looking outerwear. Thank goodness there are plenty to choose from this season: Jil Sander, Lanvin, Moncler Gamme Rogue, Derek Lam... I'm finally retiring my favorite nearly decade-old Céline red trench designed by Michael Kors during his final season at the house. It's the most beautiful shade of red, and the lining features various vintage snapshots of Paris.
Speaking of sensible yet chic, Anya Hindmarch is the queen! We just held a trunk show last week for her fashionable yet practical bags, purses, pouches and totes. Nearly all of my travel items are encased in adorable Anya pouches or bags emblazoned with fetching phrases like "cables and cords" and "jewelry" and "odds and ends." Anya makes packing a breeze. Not more digging around for my IPhone, keys or lipstick. It's like gar animals for fashion people! Anya even designed a clear plastic pouch for toiletries that says "take off" and "touch down" so you can ditch those ugly ziplock bags to pass through security. No wonder how she manages a household of five kids, a hubby and an international business!
Looking forward to our trunk show this week with Kimberly McDonald's stunning jewelry. Husbands have already been in neapolitan eyeing the cases with their wives' Mother's Day wish lists in hand. Her geodes, agates, opals and other natural stones are some of the most gorgeous gems I've ever seen. I've been dreaming about her turquoise blue boulder opal earrings surrounded by white diamonds..."

Alice + Olivia's Stacey Bendet took her Chic Report contributor duties very seriously this week by asking her friends to share the funniest things uttered recently by their toddlers. She calls them "Eloisisms." We call it adorable. First, a conversation between Stacey and her 3-year-old daughter Eloise:
Stacey: Eloise, what are you doing? (as she tackles her friend Pierce for a toy)
Eloise: Mommy, I TAKE HIM DOWN. (as she pins him to floor)
Stacey: Um, yes Eloise, you did…
*the next day when I tried to explain that tackling wasn’t the best way to get a toy, she replied, “In it to win it." Mental note: no more watching daddy and Uncle Marshall play soccer.
Stacey: Eloise, I think you are frustrated.
Eloise: Mommy, what is fwustwated?
Stacey: Frustrated is when you want something that you can't have and you get upset because you don’t understand why you can't have it.
Eloise: Oh, fwustrated is when you want chocolate and you mommy says no so you cwy? Can I have chocolate now?
Rachel Roy, designer and very glamorous mom of Tallulah (one of Eloise’s best friends)
Tallulah: Mommy, are you mad?
Rachel: No, baby, why?
Tallulah: Because you don't have any lipstick on.
Gwyneth Paltrow, actress, author, singer, blogger and supermom. The woman who does it all!
"While getting dressed for school (they had a royal wedding party on Friday—no uniforms, they dressed as princes and princesses), Apple was putting on her white dress, feather capelet, etc., and Moses said "Apple! You are all in the color white!" Apple said, 'Mosey, white is not a color, it's a shade.'"
Jessica Seinfeld, philanthropist, author, and size 2 mommy extraordinaire to a future comedian kindergartener
"My 5 year old son just said, 'Why is you underwear so small when your tush is so big?'"
Jenni Kayne, designer and mom of Tanner (Eloise’s LA boyfriend)
"It was Tanner's big easter vacation in Palm Springs, and he was invited to go to a children's birthday party with my mom... his Pitty-Pat. It was an outdoor party and they took the golf cart. He was singing the whole way, so excited to get to the party. Much to his surprise, when they pulled up, there was an Elmo pinata hanging from a tree like a noose with several kids viciously beating him to a pulp with a bat. He screamed "Elmo, no! Pitty-pat, what are they doing to Elm?' Seeing Elmo take this beating was his most traumatizing experience to date, and he insisted on rescuing what was left of him. He and my mom drove home with Elmo's head in the back of the golf cart, missing a mouth and one eye. He carried Elmo around the rest of our vacation."
Stefani Greenfield, my working mommy retail idol and parent to future fashionista Theodora
"Can we sleep in Cinderella's Castle at Disney for........ 2 minutes? No, 4 minutes…because I'm 4!"
Kelly Bensimon, The only mommy I know who looks like she 24/7 just got a blow out!
"I remember telling my youngest, Teddy, I had to go to Miami. She immediately asked, 'What's in your ami?' I love how literal kids are."
Cynthia Rowley, one of New York's most creative mommies
"You know you are a true New Yorker when your baby’s first word is 'TASSSSSI!' as in, taxi."
Alli Lamb, my sister, 1st grade teacher, and parenting guru on call 24/7…and mommy of Miss Madden
Madden: Mommy, I wet the bed.
Alli: What happened?
Madden: There was holes in my underwears.
