For those of you who don’t know, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala (otherwise known as the “Met Ball”) is THE most prestigious event for fashion insiders to show off their style. Celebrities and Fashion Icons walk the red carpet in their most flamboyant, decadent, sometimes downright zany get ups. I took a look at this year’s arrival photos and was struck by the similarities I saw in the hairstyles being worn by our fashion idols…
New York was certainly channeling Old Hollywood Glamour at this early May extravaganza. Here are some examples of looks that would undoubtedly catch the approval of Marilyn Monroe and Veronica Lake, these classic styles definitely hold a special place in my heart!
Perhaps its no coincidence that the theme of this year's Gala is: The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion, complete with accompanying book...
Linda Evangelista sure is looking a lot like Marilyn herself in this cover portrait!
Agyness Deyn and Kate Bosworth are my personal faves, they really nail the look with such ferocity!
