The Met Ball this year has picked Charles James to cherish. The much-awaited ball in the New York social calendar is little over a few days away, and the theme could not be more different than last year’s “punk”.
The dress code has been revealed as “White Tie and Decoration” and the idea has already proven to be challenging for all of the guests, which includes the likes of Zoe Saldana for Prabal Gurung, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts and Zooey Deschanel with her recentmost fashion collaborator, Tommy Hilfiger.
Male guests just have to put on their sparkling white ties and military medals (Alexander McQueen, anyone?), while for the female guests the order of the day is to wear long gowns and get creative with accessories.
Tickets are getting pricier by the day, with Vogue Editor Anna Wintour one of the chairs for the Ball, having raised it to $25,000 from last year’s already steep $15,000 as part of an effort to make the event all-the-more exclusive than before.
