THE ANNUAL FUNDRAISING MET GALA DIDN’T DISSAPOINT WITH SPECTACLE, THIS YEAR’S THEME “CHINA: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS” IS ALREADY THE HOTTEST TOPIC OF THE SEASON.
Keeping to the Asian theme, attendee’s of the annual Costume Institute Gala, such as Rihanna and Karolina Kurkova, transformed the centre of New York into an Oriental dynasty. Sarah Jessica Parker didn’t disappoint, with lace boots, Jade bangles and a Chinese Emperors hat by Philip Treacy. Kerry Washington and Lily Aldrige turned it down a notch with a more old-Hollywood approach but Beyoncé was characteristically unforgiving with a Givenchy gown that was more Moulin Rouge. Lithe limbs, plunging necklines and Anna Wintour’s bob may not have surprised us, but it stopped there, as not much else could be called regular at a ball of this social magnitude
