Each spring, celebrities and fashion lovers unite at the fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute known as the Met Gala. Fashion Mecca. Fashion Prom. Each year brings a new exhibition (and theme) highlighting the creative work of innovative designers. This year’s exhibition is Charles James: Beyond Fashion, showcasing the designer life of “America’s first couturier.” James, a British-born designer, known widely for his architectural aesthetic with many pieces being interchangeable keeping his ideas new and fresh. Exquisite tailoring and lush embroidered ball gowns were signatures of James.
There was just one dress tonight….just one…it represented Mr. James well and it was simply stunning. Karolina Kurkova in dreamy Marchesa.
Kurkova stunned two years ago at the Met Gala in Rachel Zoe. The theme was inspired by the exhibition of Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.
