The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala Red Carpet 2014

1
Charles James may be “the most copied person in the world” but I wasn’t sure what to expect since this year his designs were the theme behind the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute exhibition Charles James: Beyond Fashion.  Still, the men were dapper in their tuxes and coattails and the women experimented with breathtaking gowns and a few extraordinary pantsuits. Let’s see which glamorous ball gowns, printed frocks,  stunning couples and crazy but trendy looks wowed us this year.
