Best Dressed at the 2009 Met Costume Institute Gala

Posted by: on May 5, 2009 | One Comment

Last night the Met held its annual Costume Institute Gala which kicks off a special exhibition at the museum entitled “Model as Muse”. This is perhaps the biggest night for fashion, aside from the Oscars. Check out my picks for best dressed:

 

Canada's own Shalom Harlow at the Met 2009 Costume Institue Gala

Love it or hate it, Canada's own Shalom Harlow is the ONLY one that could pull this off and still look like the epitome of elegance. Shalom wears Bob Mackie and Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci.

    Shalom is killing it in that Mackie/Ricci ensemble from The New World Order. Un-fuckin-real.
