The MET GALA’s Avant-garde

May 4th, 2010 by HFL Staff received Comments Off

Cathy Horyn writes that the looks on the Met Gala’s red carpet “had a scripted feel.” Ball gowns at a ball – how… inventive. And you know Cathy finds something severe when she uncharacteristically tacks “man” onto the end of a sentence, as in: “So many trains, man.” But man, she is so right. Fashion can be very traditional and yes scripted. So much so it can become staid and a bit boring, but the editors at Hotel Fashionland like to work OFF SCRIPT from time to time. There was innovation at the MET Gala and a new Avant Garde was in the the house and we took notice! Alexander Wang represents what’s FRESH and innovative in fashion and his muses M.I.A. and Zoe Kravitz made the biggest impressions of the night fashion wise. While people may have been waiting for Lady Gaga, it was M.I.A, who out preformed her on the red carpet and when you compare their catalogues of music Gaga can’t compare to the creative genius that is M.I,A. Authenticity counts and so does confidence.  Meet the new Fashion Elite. Proenza Schouler or Prada? You decide.
