Alexander McQueen:Savage Beauty @ The MET Costume Institute Gala

As my navy rain boots and I plunged into the rainy depths of muddy colored puddles on Wednesday during a wet morning jaunt across the City, it occurred to me that I have yet to write about the latest royal pomp and circumstance that graced our very own shores on Monday night. Of course I am talking about the MET's annual Costume Institute Gala which celebrated the opening of “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”. Among the lucky golden ticket holders honoring the work of the late designer were the odd co-chairing trio of Anna Wintour, Colin Firth, and Stella McCartney, along with dozens of fashion royalty and celebrities including Madonna, sporting fresh facial fillers and a starry Stella McCartney frock, couture goddess Daphne Guinness in head to toe feathered Alexander McQueen, and a truly stunning Jennifer Lopez in fuschia pink Gucci. Of course with all the excitement surrounding the recent royal nuptials in London, McQueen designer    Sarah Burton could hardly hide from the blaring spotlight which now rests reverently and deservingly upon her golden head...So let's look at some of the fabulous gowns that dazzled and of course some of those which fizzled all the way up the red carpeted steps of the MET, and of course my witty photo comments....
