fashion to fete | the Met Gala

If you are into fashion you are most likely aware of the Met Gala, also known as the Museum’s Costume Institute Benefit, that took place last week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of  the Charles James Exhibit, and to celebrate the new Anna Wintour Costume Center.  While the event brings some of the most aspirational fashion looks of the year to the carpet, it is also happens to be a fundraiser that generates the Costume Institute’s main source of annual funding for exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements.

There are so many stunning fashion looks that came from the evening which you can view here.  I’ve viewed them several times and was particularly inspired by Karolina Kurkova’s Marchesa dress  made with a gorgeous hand painted fabric which resulted in a look that interpreted Charles James’ design style to perfection.

The event planner side of me however,  has been obsessed, very interested in the setting.  How was the event designed and how did they interpret Charles James breathtaking, sculptural gowns and overall brand for an event setting?

They did {in my opinion}, a beautiful job incorporating pastels from his work into the table scape from the linen cloths to the varying pastel colored glassware, and the chandelier from his photo shoot {in the second photo} into the décor in the courtyard.  Vogue posted a great video on Instagram showing you how you can get the look, which you can view here.

The exhibit will be open through August 10th in New York at The Metropolitan Museum of Art; 212-535-7710, metmuseum.org.  This is a definite must see in my book.

Wishing you a beautiful start to your week.
