The Met Ball

Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 12.31.13 PM

One of the most exciting nights on the New York scene is upon us.  The Met Ball, formally The Costume Institute Gala will once again display the dazzling excitement of Fashion Celebs and Hollywood Stars gorgeously gowned, judiciously jeweled, and capriciously coiffed, floating above the Red Carpet.  China Through the Looking Glass is this year’s Opening Exhibition, organized by The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Department of Asian Art, will explore the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion, and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries.

For what to wear to the “Oscars of the East”, when the attire calls for Chinese White Tie, choose a fabulous gown, fitted to perfection.  Let the starlets, distractedly drag their trains up the magnificent Red Carpet Stairway, and opt instead for a stunning strapless by Sachin & Babi Noir, reminiscent of the colors and images of an ancient chinese scroll.  The gown barely skims the ground, the perfect length to show of your dramatic Giuseppe Zanotti  Snake Sandals.   For the fashion lovers, we chose the Lanvin Clutch, one of the it-bags of the season.  Then we consulted our brilliant Hong Kong friend, Joanne Ooi of Plukka Jewelry.   The company is an online-only designer fine jewelry etailer offering luxury designer jewelry through an innovative made-to-order service offering the most creative and innovative jewels in the world.    The black diamond drop earrings provide a provocative pop in an ensemble for an enchanted evening in the East.
