Met Gala 2014 May 07 2014, 0 Comments

On Monday evening fashion's elite gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute Gala in celebration of the American Couturier Charles James, a fashion figure most famed for his lavish and extravagant ball gowns. The gala coincides with the launch of a retrospective exhibition 'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' to be displayed at the newly renovated Anna Wintour Costume Center. The theme for the night was 'White Tie and Decorations' and we loved seeing attendees pay homage to James' design identity in full sweeping gowns. Here are our picks of the night...
