Metropolitan Gala 2014

Monday evening was the Metropolitan Gala. It is one of the most anticipated social events of the year. In honor of the Vogue editor who has raised millions for the institute and has made the gala the event that it is today, The Metropolitan Costume Institute was recently renamed the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Every gala is accompanied by a exhibit of a fashion designer. This year, the designer is Charles James. He is unknown to most, but those who do know him recognize him as the best American Couturier. The event has always had a theme and been formal attire for women, but there was never any dress requirements for the men. Remember one year, Marc Jacobs wore white boxer shorts under a lace dress. This year Anna Wintour requested that the men wear white tie.

Although Barack and Michelle did not make an appearance, there were still some pretty good looking couples.

  1. Blake Lively and Giselle would be my favourites(but Anna will not be happy that the hubbies didn’t follow her request) I think the Marchesa dress so reminds me of Dior circa 1955. And WHY did Oscar de la Renta have to advertise his name all over the dress (or is that a photo shop addition to the picture, I hope so?)
    I always look forward to your gala posts! Thank youuuu!

  2. Call me old fashioned but for this particular event I think Anna And SJP stole the show! Couture and elegance at its’ best! Some guys need to Google white tie…

  3. Wow!Fabulous.I loved Rosie in Marchesa,Ryan and Blake always favorite couple.Korolina and SJP are so glamorous.Loved this!
