MET Gala 2009

The annual MET Gala in NYC is what fashion followers look forward to every year like movie lovers do for the Oscar awards.  Simple and elegant is not acceptable here.  Making statements with your clothes and being unique is what will get you the headline on the stairs of the MET.

This years’s theme is “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion.”  The exhibition will spotlight 70 desginers’ masterworks of haute couture and ready-to-wear and well as important fashion photography.  

Who better to kick things off than the Honorary Chair of the exhibit, Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss,  the model chameleon that has been the muse for many fashion designers.

Her are some celebrities who were brave enough to put their fashion taste on display for my fellow New Yorkers to see and critique.

Look Down More Often.

It seems as though each designer wanted to make more of a statement using the shoes in their collection than the clothes this coming spring.  

Giambattista Valli gave us a new form of platform and sexy pumps rolled up into one, that had to be over 5 inches high.  ”Pile it on,” was what the heels for Louis Vuitton would say, if they can speak.  Dolce & Gabbana created training heels for us this Spring and Prada and Marni wanted us to wear socks or tights with their creations.  With the economy being the way it is right now, designers couldn’t hold back, they had to give us more than the clothes to chose from.  

spring-shoes-2We get more wear out of our shoes, than clothes anyway, so when you buy one of the unique pair of shoes from your favorite designer this spring, know this, you’ll be walking in a pair of art pieces.
