Known as "America's First Couturier", Charles James is the center of the inaugural exhibition held by the new Anna Wintour Costume Center and the honorable dress code for this year's MET Gala. Celebrated last May 5 at the Metropolitan Museum, the fundraising event was embedded in an aura of couture and guests arrived to the red carpet supporting the most glamorous looks.
But if some truly surrendered to those vintage narrow waistlines and poofy skirts in order to obey the White Tie requirement of the ceremony, others stepped out of that cookie cutter concept and went for more minimalist looks, while maintaining that same elegance and glamour.
What really connected these two extremes was color. Probably inspired by Charles James famous Clover Leaf ball gown, black and white were mixed in very different ways. From Sarah Jessica Parker's exquisite Oscar de la Renta gown to Stella McCartney's clean striped look, this color scheme was a true star on the red carpet.
