A Model Example on the Red Carpet

Good lord there was some serious glamour last night at the gala opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new exhibition: Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. Imagine, the honorary chair is Marc Jacobs with co-chairs Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake and Anna Wintour, could that list be anymore American cool and high fashion?

The Museum explains that the exhibition: “explores the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras”.

Naturally the red carpet was walked by models a-plenty and looking at some of the amazing creations they wore last night it would be impossible to deny that the exhibition has a place.

The guest list was most definitely A-list as not only did the world’s top models strut their stuff

but they were joined by some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment too.

Model hitters: Claudia Schiffer in world class elegance; Anja Rubik, proving that short can go to the ball; Sasha Pivovarova accessorising to extremes with a peacock cape and special mention to Agyness Deyn’s ode to Marylin Monroe femininity.

Non-Model hitters: Anne Hathaway killing it with big hair, black nails and smokey eyes; Ciara showing her perfect figure with perfect style, and Jessica Biel was made to wear that red!

Not sure about Madge, that headdress, or Rihanna trousers… yay, covering up everything except your ankles (check out the gloves!) NAY…

The exhibition starts today and runs until August 9th.

Red more about how fashion models have influenced the decades here.
