Join us on the red carpet at the biggest fashion ball of the year...
What a fabulous evening in New York as the A-list stepped out for the
most fashionable ball in the calendar – the Met Institute Gala at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This year’s theme for the biggest
night in the fashion calendar was ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of
Technology’, and many of the celebrity and fashion atendees fitted the
bill perfectly. If a range of stunning styles and sumptuous silk
fabrics, the red carpet was awash with fashion’s finest displaying the
gorgeous gowns we can only dream of owning.
Of course, many of
the red carpet arrivals opted for futuristic gowns in silver, sequins
and metal to embrace the theme, but others chose more traditional
styles. Claire Danes wowed in a princess frock that glowed in the dark,
while Zoe Saldana chose a beautifully feathered train and Nicole
Kidman’s gown had a cosmic theme.
