What Will The Fash Pack Wear To The 'White Tie & Decorations' Themed Met Gala 2014?

08 April 2014 by

‘White Tie and Decorations’ is the theme of the Met Ball 2014. But considering the liberal approach fashion’s elite took to last year’s punk parameters, we’re certain there’s no pre-ordained way this dress code will play out. Held in the newly named Anna Wintour Costume Center (nice for some) this sartorial showcase centres around the Met museum’s big exhibition of the season - Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

or those of you who aren’t clued up on James, here’s a micro bio: he was a British designer famed for dressing the American elite in divine couture creations from the late 1920s through the 1950s. Diana Vreeland was an early supporter, Cecil Beaton often captured his beautiful and dramatic silhouettes on film and he designed for Elizabeth Arden. Quite simply, his work was decadent to its very core and thus, the ballpark aim for the industry’s biggest night of the year is ultimately glamour. And it must surely be of the traditional variety....

This won’t be the place for hip-bone-gate to rear it’s thigh-slit again (we’re talking to you, sasspot Anja Rubik). Oh no. Unless Rihanna – who will be crowned at the CFDAs as Fashion Icon of the Year – decides to take the White Tie subject too literally by wearing just the one white tie.

So what will the style insiders choose? Expect to see vintage. And lots of it. Dior! Oscar! Viv! Balenciaga! Satin. Tulle. Bustles. Bosoms. Nipped in waist and blown-out skirts. Undulating ruffles and dramatic sack-back outlines. It’ll be Hollywood starlet makeup a-plenty and more sepia instagram shots than you can shake a silk mule at. This is a genre we expect to see Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lawrence and Beyonce excelling at. But we're equally intrigued to see the (no doubt) rule-breaking choices of Madonna or Kim Kardashian (should she be invited for a second year in a row). Dunno about you kids, but we cannot wait.
