Chinese Celebrities at the Met Gala 2015
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2015 on May 4, celebrated the opening of China: Through The Looking Glass so it was only fitting that a number of notable Chinese celebrities were in attendance. Esteemed actress Gong Li who was one of the co-chairs of the event was resplendent in a sumptuous burgundy velvet Roberto Cavalli gown adorned with lace sleeves. The cheongsam/qipao inspired silhouette and ornate fan embroidered back paid tribute to the theme of the night in an elegant way and also proves that you don't have to bare skin to look sexy. Zhang Ziyi who was dressed by Carolina Herrera also captured the theme tastefully in her white mandarin collared gown that featured Chinese style knotted buttons and delicate floral embellishments. In my opinion there were really no missteps from any of these celebrities and thankfully none of them looked like they forgot to put their clothes on. Ni Ni was like a ray of sunshine in her yellow Ralph Lauren gown and Tang Wei looked exquisite in her shimmery Burberry dress. I also have to mention how handsome Chen Kun was in his Burberry tuxedo. He cut his hair and it looks phenomenal again!
The exhibition which is a collaboration between the Costume Institute and Department of Asian Art takes a look at the impact of the Chinese influence on Western fashion. It will be on view from May 7 through August 16 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The artistic director of the show is influential filmmaker Wong Kar Wai and I'm very much looking forward to seeing his creative vision come alive.What do you think of these looks?
