The Met Institute Costume Gala is one of Manhattan’s biggest social events of the year, and draws most of the fashion industry as well as the big names in Tinseltown. This year’s theme was Superheroes, after the exhibition “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” which runs from Sept 1.
Karl Lagerfeld looked very dapper in a gunmetal sequinned jacket and trademark gloves, while André Benjamin was the epitome of preppy chic in a white tux and straw boater.
David and Victoria Beckham were also in attendance, David with a classic tux but Victoria’s outfit was a bit of a mystery, very lace curtains and not in a Prada-eque way. Maybe it was matching her mid-’90s make-up?
