'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala ! Xx

So on Monday 5 May all the great and good of the Fashion World
gathered on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Dress code was "White Tie and Decorations", so as usual
everyone chose whether to follow the rules or not,
just as they pleased.
Most of the guys were perfectly attired in white tie, especially Mario Testino
who accompanied Stella Tennant in Burberry along with
Lily Donaldson and Suki Waterhouse.
Suki was perhaps our favourite of the evening and looked amazingly
romantic in a blush coloured ruffled tulle strapless gown,
 with black combat suede wedge ankle 
boots for that London Edge.


Anna Wintour in Chanel Couture

Anna Wintour looked gorgeous in Chanel, and her daughter Bea wore
a divine palest blue duck egg coloured duchesse satin 
and white tulle Alexander McQueen gown
 pure Charles James.

We adored Blake Lively's Gucci beaded Gown and she looked absolutely
Hollywood with her handsome husband Ryan Reynolds also in Gucci
midnight blue velvet tuxedo.

Oscar de la Renta was among the favourite Designers this year as was
Chanel, Dior, Marchesa, Prada, Miu Miu, Dolce and Gabbana, Stella McCartney,
Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Lanvin, Balenciaga by Alexander Wang,
Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg and of course good old Topshop
as worn by Jourdan Dunn, Kendall Jenna, Toni Garn,
Zoe Kravitz and Chanel Iman.

So take a look at 'what they wore' at this years 
 'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala:

embroidered with rose gold paillettes. The dress features a plunging neckline,

cascade from the shoulders and sweep down the length of the dress 
into a voluminous train. She completed her look with a 
pair of blush satin open toe high heel shoes.

one button Signoria tuxedo with grosgrain shawl lapel,
