2014 Met Gala : Charles James: Beyond Fashion

Monday Funday whether you’re a celebrity attending  the annual Costume Institute Gala aka The Met Ball , or if you’re just a normal human who wants to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with drinks and your girlfriends, Either way it’s a festivity.  I’m eager to see what all the celebs will be wearing tonight, it’s always a sight to see, and it’s very unpredictable, I think. When I went to New York and visited the Met I was fascinated, it was an incredible experience, historically & fashionably speaking. When I stood outside the met steps I imagined what it was like to attend a gala there, the gowns, the glamour,  and just the ambiance in general must be something out of my ordinary world, that's what i imagine anyway.The gala is a celebration held each year in celebration of the fashion exhibition opening , each year is themed, last year’s theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture, this year’s focus is "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" – a retrospective of the 20th-century British-born, American-based couturier. From what I read in the May issue of Vogue he was a “troubled Genius” & I also did a little research to learn more about Charles James. He designed some gorgeous gowns. You can check out some of his designs below

  1. Can't wait to see who would be my fav at MET this year! :)


  2. Whether you're a celebrity at the Met Gala or a normal human celebrating cinco de mayo. Lol. Love it.

    These are so beautiful. Dita von Teese was my absolute FAVORITE this year. That Zac Posen dress was so perfect on her. I also liked Lupita's emerald green ensemble. That was really fun.
