The Met Gala: "Beyond Fashion" 2014

1_184630209485.jpg_gallery_max.jpg

Sarah Jessica Parker / Oscar de la Renta The 2014 Met Gala is one of my favorite events of the year. Of course, if I'd be invited it would be my very favorite event, ever. So for now, red carpet photos will have to suffice. This year's theme was a tribute to legendary, American couturier Charles James. His tastes went 'beyond fashion.' Guests were encouraged to experiment with major color and decoration. Few really got it, some took it too literal. Either way, it's one of the most glamorous nights of the year.

Take a look:

Flawless!

Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka / Thom Browne

I am so torn and confused and upset. [You know] I LOVE all things Thom Browne BUT you never wear him runway style AND Neil, you're too OLD to pull this look off. Do you realize that your boyfriend looks like a harlequin?

Sarah Silverman / Zac Posen

Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2009 with Jason Wu

Jason Wu
Jason Wu

The time was 4:35 pm and I was heading to the W Downtown for the 5:00 VIP media party for Jeffrey Fashion Cares. I pulled up to valet by 5:05 and rushed over to rendezvous with bridal wear designer and the JFC Honorary Chair, Anne Barge on the 18th floor. Minutes after greeting Anne, she introduced me to Jason Wu. He was delightful, though he claimed not to know much English - not true! We spoke about food. The night before (Thursday) he dined at Bacchanalia and loved it, however, he was interested in tasting southern cooking.  

How the evening played out:

6:00 pm

Anne and I walked over to the show venue.   

6:30 pm

VIP guests started to fill the room. Fifteen minutes later, the flood gates open and the room is rapidly occupied with bow ties and stilettos.

7:00 pm

Champagne

8:30 pm

We took our seats. Anne Barge is recognized as the Honorary Chair by

Jeffrey Kalinsky

. Jason Wu is acknowledged. The co-chairs say a few words and the live auction begins.

9:15 pm

Fashion Fashion Fashion Cares! The runway ran for more than thirty minutes, I think. I lost track of time, but that's not a bad thing.

10 pm- Midnight

, VIP after-party at the W's rooftop Wetbar with

Fred Schneider

of the

B-52's

spinning live music!
