Met Gala 2011

With no official guestlist to go on we can only speculate about who will turn up to this year's MET gala, hosted by Anna Wintour with Colin Firth and Salma Hayek.
We do know however that this year the Gala is set to honour the late Alexander McQueen and an exhibition marking his 19-year career, entitled "Savage Beauty", so we can hope to see a lot of archive McQueen on the red carpet.

Long time friend and muse of McQueen, Daphne Guinness will be there (in fact she is getting dressed in the Barney's shop windows before the event so if anyone is in New York today, grrrr I'm jealous, and also head to Barney's for 5pm to see her picking out her outfit). Also in attendance will be Gisele, Coco Rocha, Blake Lively (in Chanel with Mr Lagerfeld on her arm), Kristen Stewart, Eva Mendes, Kate Hudson, Bar Rafaeli,

Spring Summer 2005 was one of my favourite McQueen collections ever, I am not sure which pieces will make up the retrospective inside the MET but I hope to see at least some of these on the red carpet tonight.

Also could we be seeing Ms Chung in one of these....
she says in this month's UK Vogue how she prefers to wear tuxedos to large events (such as her Phillip Lim outfit at last year's MET ball) and there are some great choices in McQueen's archive

Hopefully Alexander McQueen will inspire some bold choices on the red carpet tonight.


  1. great post, loved the spring collection in 2005 too,


  2. Loved this collection too! But for me it's actually impossible to pick a favourite. Right now I'm just extremely excited to see who is attending tonight and I'm hoping for many McQueen looks - although not all celebs can pull them off! We'll see.. :) x
