A Night At The Met

Oh to be a fly on the wall at the Met Gala! One of fashion’s most wild nights, where you can throw any “fashion rules” out the window and just go crazy. This years theme allowed a lot of room for that. What was that theme you ask? Well, it was Rei Kawakubo: Commes des Garcons/ Art of the In-Between. Now, if you are not a fashion addict you might be thinking “okay, well what in the world does that mean?” So, here is a little appetizer, before we move onto the main course (the gala outfits of course).

Rei Kawakubo is the woman behind Commes des Garcons, which she founded in 1969. Rei designs non-conformist clothing with “no limits,” as she puts it. Think outrageous ensembles with major padding, or a dress missing an arm hole. Unique pieces for sure! So this gala gave attendees the chance (if they wanted to – dressing in theme is not required) to really take a step into the mind of Rei and the fashions she has created for Commes des Garcons, which by the way is now on exhibit at the Met in NYC. (P.S. That’s the whole point of the gala. It’s a fundraiser for The Costume Institute.)

So without further ado, the fashion of the night! While these may not all be the most “typically” gorgeous outfits, they fit the theme in my opinion, which makes them worthy of best dressed in my opinion.
