New York City - Kids it's called the MET Gala, but it's really Anna Wintour's party! Leave it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Again, Anna Wintour) to throw the most anticipated gala and the utmost glamorous night of the New York social calendar.
Anybody who's anybody in this world was in attendance – la crème de la crème of fashion, Hollywood's gleaming fixtures, Wall Street tycoons, New York City's elite, Silicon Valley's wunderkinds, and even Justin Bieber! Can you believe it? What a crowd...insane!
Kids but let's not forget something – is not about who came to the party, but what they were wearing to the party! And this year's theme, "China: Through the Looking Glass" certainly gave the guests plenty to think about when choosing their B.D.E outfits (Borrowed Designer Ensembles)- you can quote me on that one, darling!
Certainly, dressing for the occasion was a feat in itself, but this year's guests didn't disappoint as they were walking-up the 150-yard red carpet leading into the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Of course, there were some mishaps, but I'm simply not to going to mention them at all,
I'll let you figured that out by yourself.
Just in case you were wondering - among my favorite stood Kim Kardashian West in a custom Roberto Cavalli number by Peter Dundas, Chloë Sevigny in J.W. Anderson, Karolina Kurkova in a Tommy Hilfiger dress, and Lady Gaga who wore a custom Balenciaga gown by Alexander Wang. All of these ladies brought a whole lot of individuality to the red carpet; yet they still managed to adhered to the MET's thematically tricky dress code. Bravo!
From Roberto Cavalli to Atelier Versace and from Givenchy Haute Couture to Balenciaga, and every other designer in between - some celebrities graced us with their cinematic allure, while others simply opted for sheer glamour and opulence.
"China: Through the Looking Glass" shines a light on the influence Chinese fashion had and continues to have on Western fashion. The Metropolitan Museum of Art' annual fashion blockbuster opens to the public on May 7th.
