|Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada
The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Fete always takes place on the first Monday of May. It is a gorgeous, glittering spectacle that combines brightest stars in the world of fashion, film, art and politics under one roof.
Last year one genius, Alexander McQueen, was honored with a blockbuster retrospective posthumously. This year, two will be featured; Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: Impossible Conversations. It promises to be a must see.
What was different this year was the all out Red Carpet spectacle, was live streamed for the first time. For me, it's another delicious heaping dish of dish--looks to love and loathe.
Seen, was tons of lace, feathers, high/low effects, metallics, juicy color, graphic prints, long peplums, bold ornamention and some black beauties.
