The Met Costume Institute Gala

this year, the met costume institute gala was paying a tribute to the late and great designer alexander mcqueen. though there were a lot of celebrities wearing the designer, i wasn’t really loving the looks. i don’t know why but i thought the dresses were kind of all over the place and boring at the same time.. many of them took inspiration from the movie black swan, and as amazing as i thought the movie was – this just seemed to dull-and to unoriginal.

the met costume gala is an event where you are expected to be over-the-top, original and well… wear “a costume”.  so i was a little bit disappointed.. they should go all out with; the dresses, accessories, make-up and hair. something that wouldn’t be quite as acceptable anywhere else.

here are my favourite looks from the evening;
