A Fashionable Fete

by habituallychic

05 . 03 . 10

Tonight is the social event of the season for the fashion flock. The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art annual gala know better as the Met Ball will support the new exhibit, American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity. Makes sense that the Gap is the sponsor although I doubt many woman in attendance will actually be wearing anything from the Gap! Lady Gaga will be sitting with and wearing Prada which should be interesting! Vogue also plans the fete so you know everyone dresses to impress! More interesting are the decorations that are just as much of a show stopper as the ensembles. Past event planners David Monn and Robert Isabell created French gardens in the museum so it will be interesting to see how Raul Avilla will interpret the American theme. You can read some interesting behind the scenes stories in an old article from New York magazine. Also bigger than the decorations, is the question that is on everyone’s mind, what will Oprah wear?! Be there or be square!

    How amazing does Elle look in that photo?
    And I love Kate Moss juxtaposed with the zebra carpet, I’m really craving a zebra rug right now.

    I seriously cannot wait!!! This is my favorite event every year and I drool over the photos for weeks on end afterwards every year! When I was picking a wedding dress last year, my one criteria was that it resemble the kind of intricacies you see at the Met Ball! I was very happy!

    What I wouldn’t give to attend this. I think this ranks higher than the Oscars. Can’t wait to see what everyone is wearing!x
