So I already expected that a majority of the night’s guests would not have worn an interpretation of the night’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme. The red carpet seemed more like a showcase of the designers’ best.
Seen here (from top to bottom): Rihanna definitely won the night in an exquisite Guo Pei design; Cher made an appearance in Marc Jacobs; Tom Ford’s red gown stood out among all the other red gowns; Francisco Costa just wanted to make beautiful dresses for Lorde, Chiara Ferragni and Kendall Jenner; and a picture that represented both the outlandish and the demure looks that the Met Gala brought - Karen Elson in Dolce and Gabbana, Lily Aldridge in Carolina Herrera, Kerry Washington in Prada, and Sarah Jessica Parker in custom H&M.
John Lloyd Young with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen - Washington DC, February 11, 2017. Thank you JLY for sharing this on FB and Instagram. Hope you had a successful evening and a productive conversation with the VP. It’s always good to learn from others, and I’m sure he learned a lot from you. Gives me hope… :o)
