I am going to go all Tom & Lorenzo here and comment on some of the looks at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit, aka the Met Gala. The invitations read white tie and tails, which conveys a certain air of gravitas for both the men and women.
White tie for gentlemen consists of a black dress coat commonly known as an evening tailcoat, white bow tie, white waistcoat and starched wing collar shirt, while women wear a suitable dress for the occasion, such as a ball gown. Dresses with lengths above the ankle (such as cocktail or tea-length dresses) are frowned upon and considered inappropriate. Depending on the formality of the event, bare shoulders may or may not be acceptable.
Unfortunately, many of the guests chose not to adhere to the requested dress code and wore what they wanted. There were some good looks, and some ghastly ones.
Which do you like and which do you dislike?
