The grand entrance at The Meta Gala 2014 was made by Sarah Jessica Parker in a dreamy black and ivory Oscar de la Renta gown, followed by Dita Von Teese dressed in Zac Posen. Of course there were so many stylish looks, Charles James–worthy, to say the least. There were gowns that combined a sense of drama with a romantic edge, with floral prints like Tabitha Simmons and Giovanna Battaglia’s petal-sprigged Dolce & Gabbana dresses.
Some of the guests conformed into the formal white-tie dress code for the night: Michelle Williams‘ chic Louis Vuitton dress, or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Elizabeth Olsen’s minidresses. “Men, we don’t get a lot of variation. It’s nice to get to do something outside the norm. It’s different, I like it.”” John Legend sad in a Ralph Lauren look. “This dress code should be mandatory for most events,” told Johnny Depp also wearing a Ralph Lauren outfit, while Tom Ford, who is already on the trend, declared: “Actually, we do live in London. And in June we sometimes dress in white tie”, said the designer.
