New York’s Metropolitan Museum Met Gala
Punk: Chaos to Couture
As it has every year since 1948, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomed the prestigious Met Gala. This is one of the fashion world’s most important events. The event was held on May 6 of 2014 which was the opening of the new exhibition Punk: Chaos to Couture.
Creative director for Dior, Raf Simmons, was present and dressed Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence, Daria Strokous, Bee Shaffer and Leelee Sobiesky.
Jennifer Lawrence went for a decidedly more sedate look at the 2013 Met Gala. Lawrence, the “Hunger Games” star chose to forego the Gala’s “punk couture” theme and opted for a retro Dior Couture gown that held a sophisticated look with a 1950s silhouette and netted veil.
Is it really surprising that the Oscar-winner chose to wear the elegant Dior dress? Not so much. Lawrence is the face of Miss Dior and is feature in the French couture company ads everywhere.
Marion Cotillard, another familiar face in Dior ads is wearing a blush and nude Dior look.
Leelee Sobieski is dressed in Dior shown above. The indie actress wore an unusual look consisting of a white strapless bustier gown with a black t-shirt featuring long sheer sleeves with gold embroidered gloves.
Bee Shaffer, photographed below, wore a perfectly fitted white gown from Christian Dior’s Spring 2013 collection on the red carpet of the Met Gala.
The streaming of the event was a collaboration between The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Moda Operandi, Vogue, and Samsung. Check out the live stream and view more of the looks from the annual event.
