Met Gala

Rachel Roy posted this year's Met Gala Entrance on her Instagram! Beautiful! 


Tonight's the night! Fashion's biggest night of the year- MET BALL!

I am so excited to all the designer's take on this year's dress code of "White Tie & Decorations." 




Go home Katy, you missed the theme. 
This year's theme is completely opposite of last year's theme of Punk Chaos to Couture (which I still don't know how I felt about it, haha I mean Katy Perry arrived looking like a Saint? I don't understand).

Over the years, I've had SO many favorites, if not adore every outfit! The craftsmanship and thought that goes into these gowns is ridiculously amazing. But since this year is "White Tie" the ladies' outfits won't be the only thing to look forward to! The men have to be in tail coats with matching pants that have a strip of satin on the sides with cuff-links, black socks, and gloves - AKA look like David Beckham at the Royal Wedding! I'm so excited to see designer's take on this dress code.
I can't even deal. 

But this year's theme is so fitting for the opening of the exhibit being celebrated! This year's exhibit is featuring Charles James' work. James was America's very first couture designer. His pieces rival  come close, to those of Dior. Yet one thing about his pieces is that his pieces do not hide a woman's silhouette- it accentuates it. He formed to fabric to really show off a woman's body rather than add so many layers that the only person who could wear couture were the 70lb stick figures that we call "models."

“All my seams have meaning—they emphasize something about the body.”

You can get a sneak peek of the exhibit here. The exhibit "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" runs from May 8 until August 10, 2014. I don't know about you, but I cannot wait to go check it out!
