Met Gala 2012 Round-up
The Met Gala is without a doubt one of fashion’s and NYC’s biggest nights. Sometimes referred to as the “fashion oscars”, the event is actually the opening night of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual fashion exhibit. This year the exhibit features the work of Italian designers Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. Entitled Impossible Connections, it explores the similarities between the two designers over the course of their respective careers. Last year the exhibit featured a posthumous tribute to Alexander McQueen.
The lead-up is full of buzz about what everyone will be wearing, and attendees keep their designer’s name a closely guarded secret until the moment they first set foot on the red carpet. Designers save their statement gowns to showcase them at the event, and only one thing is guaranteed – the results will be dramatic. Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite red carpet moments.
