Fashion Trends at the Met Gala 2012
Glistening gowns, revealing sheer, luscious fabric, and embellishment galore- last night, the Met Gala seemed to be the olympic games of fashion. Hollywood starlets and all the big names in fashion converge for one sacred night of fashion and glamour of the highest caliber. Gracing the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the night was in celebration of fashion legends Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli, who constitute “Impossible Conversations,” the newest exhibition by the Costume Institute. Every starlet featured a design attuned to their individual tastes, however several overarching themes reigned supreme, representing the current hot eveningwear trends for this summer and fall. Gone is the simplified aesthetic of recent times and replacing it is a highly decorated and ornamental fashion taste. Of course, if there was a time for adorned ostentation, the Met Gala is most assuredly it.
