At last night’s 2011 Met Ball in New York City, celebrities and fashion royalty alike joined together to mark the annual occasion and celebrate another year in fashion, and with this year’s accompanying exhibition honouring late work of the late Alexander McQueen, many guests chose to wear some of the labels greatest gowns on the night – except for host Anna Wintour, that is.
Making her grand entrance on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Vogue US editor-in-chief wore a fully sequined Chanel Couture gown from the label’s spring/summer 2011 collection, reports StyleBistro, and although the long-sleeved intricate dress was truly gorgeous, we can’t help but wonder if a McQueen number would have been more suited for the occasion.
Are we right to assume the most powerful woman in fashion, who hosted last night’s gala, should honour the event in McQueen, or by-pass the obvious choice altogether and opt for a different designer? It’s your call – let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
Stay tuned for our fashionable round-up of the best dressed at last night’s stylish extravaganza.
