The annual Met Gala was held on Monday night to fete the launch of this years Costume Institute's exhibit of couturier Charles James entitled Charles James: Beyond Fashion. The dress code was white tie with decorations. What is decorations, you ask? State or military awarded medals and honors, and sashes. Both men and women were expected to show up in full evening attire. This was a major shift from last year's punk themed gala. Here are my favorite looks.
