LET THE STARS REIGN

by Lucinda Jenkins 

Worthy of a Shakespearean drama, this years Met Gala was a celestial scene of out and out beauty. The show stopping accessories with flawless beauty to match. The “Heavenly Bodies : Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme was designed to create a dialogue between religious works of art (shown in New York’s Costume Institute museum) and fashion, allowing guest celebrities imaginations to run wild and in turn shine a spotlight on the historical influence the Catholic religion has on fashion.


FASHION GRABBING

The accessories that stole the night

The Veils  - Crystal-gem adorned veils were pinned down to hair covering most of the head. Hair was centrally parted and either kept straight and sleek or waved into a Hollywood curl peaking through the drapes!

All Hail the Halo’s - Blake Lively stole the show this year with a gown to die for and hair perfectly twisted into a halo. We loved her bespoke Judith Leiber clutch with a medieval inspired family crest including her husbands and two daughters initials.
