2014 Met Ball Fashion Predictions
The 2014 Met Ball is fast approaching, and with it a thousand fashion commentators getting ready to flex their critical muscles at the range of exquisite and absurd ensembles on the red carpet. The Met Costume Institute announced its theme on Tuesday, celebrating U.S. couturier Charles James with a "White Tie and Decorations" theme. If you're perplexed by theme, you may not be the only one. WWD clarified the formal attire requirement, stating that men will be expected to arrive in "a black tailcoat, waistcoat, a wing collar shirt and a white bow tie", as well as some strategically placed pins and badges. Could it be that the Met is finally creating a male-centric theme? Or perhaps last year's punk motif was simply too exhausting for guests. In any case, we anticipate celebrities putting on the ritz and getting their glam on for the gala, and we have predictions for what may be worn to this most glitzy of occasions.
