Flowers Ruled The Met Gala Last Night
If last night’s Met Gala honoring the designs of Rei Kawakuba was any indication, the relationship between fashion and florals is stronger than ever. From the designer’s 1982 “Blood and Roses” dress on display in The Costume Institute (where the event is held annually) to the lush, over-the-top floral crowns adorning the models on site, the evening was a decadent floral affair, including beautiful, spherical rose installations and much, much more.
Vogue was on site to capture the best looks and previews from the show, which features 150 examples of Kawakubo’s womenswear looks for Comme des Garçons throughout the years, including artifacts from her early 1980’s collections up through to her most recent work. We’ve selected a few of our favorite photos above, but for the full story (and even more photos!) head on over to Vogue.com.
