The Met Ball

The Costume Institute Gala Benefit or the Met Ball as its more shortly termed is held annually every year.Its a great mix of people from designers,models,socialites,actresses and influential people in the Fashion Biz.Its something i look forward to every year as we really get to see fashion expressed and not repressed.Unlike other red carpets which tend to be on a safe area the gala boasts the most elaborate and expressive reflection of a designer's work.Couture and custom pieces are put on not just for the sake of fashion but also to celebrate its history.Each year different eras in fashion which had an impact are focused upon and celebrated.This year celebrates the opening of the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” exhibition. The event is hosted by Patrick Robinson of The Gap, co-hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour and talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.I've put up pictures of outfits that were some of my absolute favorites.Of course each outfit needed its own post so i've kinda put them in groups.
