Tonight, the 1% of everyone who is anyone in fashion/film/music/Silicon Valley/Wall Street (etc) is going to be on Fifth Avenue for the Met Gala to celebrate China: Though the Looking Glass, the Costume Institute’s Spring exhibition. Goes without saying, we all must bow down to the leading lady behind all of this, Ms. Anna Wintour. The LA Times about Ms. Wintour: “The event has become a testament to the unmistakable power of it’s co-host.” Yes, power.
I am as excited about the red carpet tonight as I am about the exhibit. From fashion’s eyes, where East meets West, “the exhibition will explore the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries.” Cuts, prints, colors.. this sounds intriguing!
