This year’s Met Gala was jam-packed (and I mean that! Did you see the size of some of those gowns?!) with glitz, glam, a little skin and a whole lot of tulle! The theme was “White Tie and Diamonds” and the event honored designer, Charles James with an exhibit “Beyond Fashion.” Charles James is known for ballroom gowns and has come to be recognized as the first designer to dabble in couture fashion.
Many of the women who attended this year’s Met Gala took Charles James’ inspiration quite literally and looked like they stepped right out of the 1950s with their ensembles. Others well, they took on their own approach to the theme. Here are some of the trending styles that appeared on the red-carpet with my absolute favorites at the end. ENJOY!
