What to wear to the MET Ball?

Red gown by Alexander McQueen

If you’re one of the chosen few to be invited to the MET ball it’s a blessing and a curse. As a fashion stylist I realize that all eyes will be on what you wear and you need a gown fit for a ball.  So I’ve compiled a list of designers who would be wonderful and appropriate to wear to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Ball this year in honor of the exhibit featuring Alexander McQueen. It’s a shame he won’t be able to be there.
All of these designers make gowns meant to make a huge impression.
If you haven’t had a chance to order your dress custom by now RUN don’t walk to Bergdorfs, Saks, and Barney’s in NYC as they all have stunning dress

departments. Tell them I sent you 🙂
1. Alexander McQueen-why not pay homage to one of the greats
2. Chado Ralph Rucci-available at Bergdorfs or Saks. The custom process takes weeks
3. Marchesa-Online at Neiman’s, Net-a-porter, Mytheresa, 24fab.com, and Saks. In NYC at Bergdorfs, Saks
4.Rodarte-Net-a-porter, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney’s

17. Isaac Mizrahi-shop on east 67th street, Bergdorfs or Net-a-porter

FOR GREAT VALUE:

20. Selma Karaca who dressed Esperanza Spalding for the Grammy’s when she won this year best new artist
21. Anthropologie has launched BHLDN which I LOVE geared towards bridal but there a few which could totally work for the MET Ball

In a pinch you can always RENT the RUNWAY or Go Vintage-Keni Valenti and Resurrection Vintage in Nolita
