Fashion Feast: The MET Gala, Louis Vuitton & Pierre Cardin Exhibits
May is finally here again as the world of fashion, its onlookers and harsh critics vegging on fries in their granny PJ’s come together via social media to celebrate or condemn this year’s MET Gala fashion.
In close second, Blake Lively like Zendaya, consistently delivers fashion nourishment for the soul at any red carpet event. Their interpretation of this year’s heavenly bodies theme have us on our knees in rejoice!
Today’s episode is definitely one of my favorites on the VLOG. If you will notice, I always favor sharing posts that are on the educational side.
Rather than “influence” (cringe), the goal is always to inform as there is this innate responsibility to share what I’ve learned in order to empower whilst entertaining.
There is so much more to a photo that symbols. Every picture tells a story.
So here I am sharing stories, three in fact. Stories that will hopefully make you look beyond the fabrics, the frou frou and the stereotypical feminine flair.
The MET Gala
Considered the Oscars of the fashion industry, the MET Gala is the most prestigious social event of the year.
The iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is also where I met Liam Neeson a few months back!
As you’ll see, I start off today’s fusion of travel & fashion by sharing my fave looks from the MET Gala through the years, a bit of its history and why all the fuss. After which I’ll take you to two fashion exhibitions I got to see: Louis Vuitton and Pierre Cardin.
French fashion designer, Pierre Cardin was the man who started the RTW or Ready To Wear movement, which was considered radical in a world of custom haute couture for the rich aristocrats in 1959.
Ecstatic to see his beautiful exhibition at Rosecliff Mansion in Rhode Island to celebrate 70 Years of Innovation in fashion.
The dress above once worn by Lauren Bacall (below) in the 1960’s. She along with Jackie Kennedy are just some of the celebrities who’ve worn Pierre Cardin’s creations.
Onto another fashion exhibition back here in New York by none other than Louis Vuitton: Volez, Voguez, Voyagez, which showcases all forms of luxury travel from its beginnings to its powerhouse collaborations and ultimately the brand we all know of today.
Such an impressive collection that is serious travel baggage goals and of course, all the red carpet gowns worn all through out history from Old Hollywood to young stars of today like Alicia Vikander.
Hope you enjoy today’s episode and who do you think is this year’s best dressed at the MET Gala?
