This year the MET Gala goes back to its roots with a strict white tie dress code. To break it down, it usually consists of a black tailcoat with matching trousers that feature a single stripe of satin, a white piqué wing-collared shirt, a white vest, studs and cuff links, a white bow tie, white or grey gloves, black patent shoes, and black dress socks.
This year the theme celebrates the “Great American Couturier,” Charles James. The designer was very popular from the ’30s and even into the ’70s. From detailed draping to voluminous ball gowns and exquisite structuring, everything was about grand glamour.
