THE MET BALL'S 2014 THEME WAS CHARLES JAMES.  BELOW ARE SOME IMAGES FROM THE EXHIBIT







 I WAS HOPING TO SEE SOME VERY LITERAL TAKES ON THIS INSPIRATION {AHEM, SJP, THANK YOU} AND I'M TRULY PERPLEXED HOW SOME OF THE "LOOKS" FROM LAST NIGHT PERTAINED TO THE THEME. {I'M A SUCKER FOR 'THEME'} I REALIZE IT'S OPEN TO INTERPRETATION BUT I'M STILL AT A LOSS.  
P.S. I'M ALSO PAINFULLY AWARE THAT I AM COMPLETELY REMOVED FROM THE WORLD OF HIGH FASHION

HOWEVER. . .
HERE ARE THE LOOKS THAT BAFFLED ME THE MOST:








 

LOVE THE LOOK BUT NOT FOR THE THEME:
