Every year in celebrities and fashionistas alike flock to The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for their Spring Gala, known to insiders as “The Met Ball.” This year the gala celebrated the opening of the museum’s new retrospective exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
Needless to say, many came dressed in Alexander McQueen. And, after the Royal Wedding, that easily makes Sarah Burton the busiest dressmaker around!
The outfits were amazing. We didn’t love Daphne Guiness’ lilac featherd McQueen, but we DO love that she got ready for the ball in the window of Barney’s to onlookers’ amusement. Among some of the best were Ginnifer Goodwin in a really cool, cut out in just the right places, Topshop green dress (above), Gisele Bundchen (below) in an amazing red Alexander McQueen (not that she wouldn’t look great in a paper bag but this dress is spectacular),
and Blake Lively looking beautiful in Chanel. While we usually like to make shoes the star of the show, sometimes the dress requires that you wear something more classic as she did. And we all know that basics can sometimes be the toughest to find! Below is how you can easily design your own custom made milk & honey shoes similar to Blakes’ so you can avoid the endless search and focus on the party!
