The Met-"Savage Beauty" Gala

When the invitation reads: Metropolitan Museum of Art-Costume Institute Gala-“Savage Beauty” (A celebration of the late designer Alexander McQueen and his creations)… it pretty much gives you free license to  “dress to impress.” Two of my favorite looks of the night were Giselle Bundchen and Ashley Green. Their gowns were absolutely gorgeous!

There were so many looks to review (1,143 slides on Zimbo to be exact) and after sorting through the entire collection I came up  with …the best of the best (in my opinion) and some that would have  been best kept- zipped in a garment bag -NEVER to see the light of day!

I stand corrected. I said one hot mess but their seems to be a tie- Mary Kate Olsen looks lackluster in this frock. Why oh why, does such a beautiful petite woman choose to wear clothes that hide her gorgeous shape? Then we have Christina Hendricks-I have said it before and it bears repeating…”Christina-CALL Janie Bryant(Mad Men’s Costume Designer) and have her dress you for events like this.-She makes you look smashing on the show but when you venture out in public… Disaster!

Final Note : The greatest compliment anyone can pay to a designer is to wear his creations. Artist Daphne Guinness did it with style. Make sure you checkout the detailing in the last photo-McQueen was a master!
