Met Gala Countdown: Anna

Anna is largely responsible for making The Met Gala what it is today: Fashion’s biggest night. (Nope, not the Oscars.) And a giant source of funding for the museum.

Below, a look back at her many appearances and style choices. Mostly in Chanel. The Devil Wears Chanel.

She usually goes relatively simple, because it’s not about her. (It’s totally about her.)

My favorites are the long-sleeved peach/black/silver/purple gown and the silver/gray look with the strong-shoulder bolero.

Karen Elson. Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda.

2015 Met Gala: “China: Through The Looking Glass.”

Look, there’s only one right way to approach The Met Gala, OK?

Total Carpet Shut-Down. Behold, Karen Elson:

The Making Of. 

The bodice adornments were applied on the body. Mindful of risking Karen’s fair complexion and red hair veering too far into Elizabethan territory, her glam squad avoided high hair, white-out paint and the centered cupid’s bow. They instead gave her a modern touch via sleek hair, a slightly-winged eye and full lip, rather than replicating Karen as Queen Elizabeth by Kevyn Aucoin, below right.

The Carry-Off.

This was a whole lot of look, that could have gone wrong in less capable hands. Karen carried it with a mix of regal air, humor, ease, and joy.     And she Shut. It. Down.

Jackie in Valentino at the 1979 Met Gala. The theme was “The Imperial Style: Fashions of the Hapsburg Era.” 22 years later, the theme would be hers: “Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years.”

1979: Jackie’s off-shoulder tiers and ruffles echo the Hapsburg theme.

Princess Diana, 1996 Met Gala.

A slip dress, appropriately enough for the 90s.

Navy satin, black lace – –  and you know that ain’t no costume jewelry.

This was John Galliano’s first-ever gown for Dior.  Fashion history.
