Delectable dichotomy at Met

Mumbai:Anna Wintour’s party saw a dynamic display of hand and machine-made couture on the red carpet. Embellished racy Balmain dresses ruled the red carpet and were seen on the likes on Cindy Crawford, Kylie Jenner and Kim and Kanye Kardashian.

Gowns with billowing trains eclipsed the red carpet – see on Anna’s daughter Bee Shaffer, who opted for a dramatic Alexander McQueen number and Katy Perry who rocked a midnight blue and emerald green statement-making Prada gown.
Techno femininity ruled the red carpet with the Zac Posen Fiber Optic Woven Organza Dress seen on Claire Danes. Posen sourced the fibre optic woven organza in this dress from France, and there are 30 mini battery packs sewn into the gown’s understructure.

“I went through a sequence of stages throughout the process of draping this gown, playing with motion and structure to capture the emotional engineering. The gown is hollow underneath with no tulle – holding its own structure,” he said in a statement.
