One of the most talented designers in the world was the late Alexander McQueen. He was first discovered by the late Isabella Blow. McQueen's work is cutting edge, fashion forward, and avant garde. He made exquisite art pieces of clothing. He was known for pushing the boundaries in fashion. Last night's event at the MET proves that his legacy will continue. All of his friends, admirers, and supporters came to pay homage to his work. Anna Wintour, Colin Firth, and Stella McCartney were the chair of the evening. I have never seen so many celebrities, singers, and designers merged in one event. The Costume Institue Gala is the biggest fashion event in the New York social scene. It is considered as the Oscars of the East Coast.
Renee Zellweger looked stunning in a long sleeve nude dress from Carolina Herrera. The look was effortless. Demi Moore's Prabal Gurung dress gave her the edge at the party. She accessorized her look with an amazing feathered hat from Philip Treacy. Leave it to Jennifer Lopez to make a grand entrance. She wore a red gown with flower details from Gucci's Fall 2011 collection. Everything was perfect. Ginnifer Godwin's 70s look caught my eye. She wore an emerald green dress from Topshop Unique. She carried herself well. As for the model department, Hilary Rhoda wore Alexander McQueen. The white tuxedo inspired look gave the statuesque beauty a fashion forward edge. The frayed edges vamped up her look. Talking about elegance and style, Tory Burch nailed it. She wore vintage Jean Patou. Anna della Russo's egg hat was the perfect scene stealer at the ball. She wore a matador inspired tuxedo by McQueen. The last living muse of McQueen, Daphne Guinness, wore a white feather dress from Sarah Burton's Fall 2011 collection. She is a piece of art on her own. She is the chosen one to carry the torch of McQueen. Madonna looked good in a pale blue dress by Stella McCartney. She looked sophisticated with her retro style. Keri Hilson rocked the knitted dress from Atelier Versace. She looked confident, sexy, and ready for the kill.
These are my top choices from last night's gala.
