MET BALL: Red Carpet Glamour
Sure, sure… we here on the West Coast have the Oscar Red Carpet – but tonight was the night for the East Coast to shine! That’s right, this very night was the glamorous Met Ball – N.Y.C.’s most coveted invitation and the opening party for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s newest exhibit, “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”.
The guest list was dazzling with heavies from the fashion, celeb, society and modeling worlds mingling together as they sashayed down the red carpet, and we spotted a number of gorgeous trends, such as the body-skimming sparkle favored by Anna Wintour in custom couture Chanel, and Gwyneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney.
There was also an abundance of peek-a-boo lace, as evidenced by Rihanna in Stella McCartney, and Tory Burch in a vintage Jean Patou (accompanied by Kanye West in a suit by Tory Burch).
And cut-outs seemed to be a theme, from side slits to bare shoulders and arms, geometric detailing appeared on Ginnifer Goodwin wearing jewels by Van Cleef and Arpels, Emma Roberts in Michael Kors, and many others.
