Best of the Costume Institute Met Ball 2013

It’s the year’s biggest red carpet event.

The Costume Institute exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum designated 2013 as a tribute year to the punk era.  We saw a variety of interpretations of the theme, as well as some classic gowns from fashion’s biggest names. This year marked some stunning displays of fashion, some of which you can see below. How amazing would it be to attend this event? Hoping to see my invitation in the mail for next year… xx PatriciaParisienne
