The Met Costume Institute Gala 2011
The Annual Costume Institute Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the Oscar night of fashion. Everyone who is anyone attends, in their finest designer gowns, from the demure to the dramatic. This year, the theme of the exhibit was 'Alexander McQueen : Savage Beauty', which honoured the late designer. These are the divas, darlings and disasters of the evening.
Simple and Modern Silhouettes
The Quirky and Unusual
Different Takes on Black
|I almost have no words for these. Almost. Fergie takes her turn at playing a bride in this 80's style wedding gown by Marchesa. Christina Ricci in Zac Posen - this is more of a Halloween costume with all it's spider-webbing detail. Naomi Campbell is a fashion felon in shreds of white fabric by Alexander McQueen. Karolina Kurkova in an ill-fitting gown by Jean Paul Gaultier - so many things wrong, especially the white lace leggings. Daphne Guinness wears this gargantuan feathered 'structure' from the last Alexander McQueen Collection. I'm going to have endless nightmares about this one.|
