The “Oscars of the East,” as The Met Gala has been nicknamed, celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. The red carpet is supposedly the world’s best carpet event. The Met has been held annually since 1948 and each year it exhibits some new trends which the fashion world religiously follows. This year saw the onset or perhaps the revival of the color red. The color symbolizes attitude, passion, and elegance, and that is why it can be experimented by Vivienne Westwood and Balenciaga at the same time. The experimental red trend of 20s and 40s is back for all.

There’s always the debate about which event is more glamorous — The Met Gala or The Oscars. Personally, I think The Met Gala embodies panache more than the Oscars.
This year, the Met honors the late Alexander McQueen with an exhibit of his work called “Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty.” The Met Gala opened at the beginning of the month and will end at the end of July while the opening was held at the beginning of this month.Tags: 2011, Alexander Mcqueen, anna wintour, balenciaga, Bree shaffer, Dianna Agron, Doutzen Kros, Gisele Bünchen, Kristen Stewart, Lea Michele, met gala, Red, savage beauty, vogue
