The Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute threw a doozy of a ball, themed American Woman, on May 3rd, complete with glittering fashion royalty. Lots of bold face names walked the red carpet and I was excited to see many of the young, next generation designers there with high-profile dates, such as Oprah Winfrey who co-chaired with Patrick Robinson, the men of Proenza Schouler with Chloe Sevigny, Alexander Wang with Zoe Kravitz and M.I.A., Philip Lim with Alexa Chung, and Peter Som with Zoe Kazan.
There are too many pictures to show you here, but feel free to jump on over to Style.com to see the full red carpet dress parade. It is serious dress p@rn for all of us fashion geeks. I usually choose pictures where the woman takes center stage and not just the dress. It’s amazing how seldom this happens. Here are my favorites:
Celebrities and models weren’t the only ones looking hot. Check out these pictures of Vera Wang and Donna Karan, both in white. What kind of youth Kool-Aid are they drinking?! Whoa, they look good.
There are a hundred drool-worthy pictures of this event. So if you need more, jump on over to here for full coverage.
