MET Costume Institute Gala!
Monday night (4th May) the spotlights were on NYC, for fashion’s most glamorous night: forget the Oscars, the Golden Globes and the Grammys, because the real deal is
Tendenzialmente non ricevi un invito a meno che tu sia:
Every year the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, with an exclusive star-studded gala, where the only rule is “dress to impress”.
Secondo Anna Wintour, questa è la mostra più sontuosa mai allestista dal Costume Institute, data anche la collabiorazione con il dipartimento di arte asiatica del MET.
Vogue magazine realizzerà inoltre un documentario sulla mostra e sul galà annesso: non vediamo l’ora di vederlo!
Last year the MET celebrated Charles James‘s genius, but this time it pays homage to an entire country, China: the Chinese cultural influence on fashion is honored, thanks to an exclusive exhibition, “China: Through The Looking Glass”.
According to Anna Wintour, this is the biggest exhibition ever staged by the Costume Institute, given the partnership with the MET’s Department of Asian Art.
Vogue magazine is also going to publish a documentary about the exhibition and the gala: we can’t wait to watch it!
The guests were expected to dress according to the theme, even though the probability of seeing a few styling missteps was fairly high...

Best dressed of the night
Rihanna in Guo Pei Couture
The best she has ever looked at the MET, plus this is the most iconic look from this year.
A real masterpiece from Chinese designer Guo Pei: 50’000 hours of work, but it was totally worth it!
The Masters of Sex‘s actress looked incredibly chic: the dress fits perfectly with the theme without being outlandish.
Good job to stylist Ilaria Urbinati.
Good job also to these ladies:
Sienna Miller in Thakoon , Empire‘s star Taraji P. Henson in Balenciaga, and Emily Blunt in Prada
Lady Gaga in Jason Wu
I mean, it’s Gaga at the MET gala, what did you expect?
Until she hides those sparkling platforms under the coat, I will call this couture.
Just look at the bodice: a true interpretation of an ancient Chinese soldier armor.
ok, how can you go from Rosie Huntington Whiteley to…this?
MsD hated it, but I don’t mind it: too bridal maybe.
That’s real Chinese inspired couture….
