Met Gala 2014

This year, the white-tie request of the Met Gala was in keeping with the theme of the museum’s Costume Institute exhibit, “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” James was a mid-20th century designer who specialized in spectacular, sculptured gowns made with intricate draping techniques. “Decorations” was the order of the evening–some got it absolutely right, while others completely missed the mark.
