The annual grand fantastical fashionable event of the year took place last night at The Met. The event of course, was none other than the Costume Institute Gala Benefit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrated the opening of the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition, featuring the late designer’s iconic work.
There were so many stand out dresses at this year’s Met Gala! Mine favorite look was from Daphne Guinness who sported the iconic feathered dress from McQueen’s Spring 2011 collection.
Daphne and a few others wore McQueen as a tribute to the late talented designer. I love the dress and his work speak for itself. Truly legendary. Their wont be another McQueen.
From the press release:
“Alexander McQueen was best known for his astonishing and extravagant runway presentations, which were given dramatic scenarios and narrative structures that suggested avant-garde installation and performance art,” said Andrew Bolton, Curator of the Costume Institute. “His fashions were an outlet for his emotions, an expression of the deepest, often darkest, aspects of his imagination. He was a true romantic in the Byronic sense of the word – he channeled the sublime.”

Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty Exhibition will run from May 4th through July 31st, 2011 at The Met Museum in NYC.
