In Praise of The Fashionistah Adventuress, Met Gala 2012
Every Spring, the fashionistahs flock to worship at the altar of Anna Wintour. En masse, they come in droves to fete the designers and out ballgown each other at an annual event, The Met Gala. The soiree marks the opening of the fashion exhibition of two Italian designers, Impossible Conversations: Elsa Schiaparelli and Muiccia Prada at the MOMA. If you are in New York and a lover of fashion history, you should probably check it out.
Now back to the extravagance and audacity that is the Gala. Best-dressed lists are subjective and my point of view is that these celebs chose to go a more adventurous route, the path less beaten, choices more playful and memorable in their selection, statements so individual, they seared into the fashionistah collective consciousness.
Fashionistah Grain of Wisdom: When selecting evening attire, you must wear the dress and not let the dress wear you.
