WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – PUNK: Chaos to Couture on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Vera Wang dress, Christian Louboutin shoes
MY VERDICT: It was so hard for ladies to find a balance between “chaos” and “couture” at the MET gala this year, but I believe Kerry Washington was one of the few who made a great attempt. The “Scandal” actress looked absolutely stunning when she arrived on the red carpet wearing a custom-made violet floral and laser lace peplum gown by Vera Wang, which featured a black fishnet inset within the deep v-neckline and a matching tulle train. The dress alone had a dark glamour vibe that was only enhanced by Kerry’s daring long leather gloves.
This was certainly something new for Kerry, but I’ve never gotten the impression that she wasn’t willing to test new fashion waters. | continue reading..
