Each year, fashion lovers from around the globe eagerly await the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Opening Gala red carpet. For fashion royalty, the Academy Awards are just a prelude to Met Gala… this is the event where the truly amazing gowns come out to play! This year’s Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, officially opens on May 10th, but the stars came out to celebrate on May 7th.
Among the best of the best was the stunning Chanel Iman, who arrived at the Gala wearing a chalk lady amhearst pheasant feather moire tulle evening dress and rock anaconda ankle strap pumps from the TOM FORD Autumn/Winter 2012 Womenswear Collection. Her best accessory? Her date—Mr. Ford himself.
There were a number of gowns at the Gala that incorporated feathers, but no one did it better than Mr. Ford in this creation. I loved the combination of delicate pheasant feathers and sheer black tulle the moment I saw the lookbook photo. Perfection.
All that was missing was me, on Mr. Ford’s other arm!
