Best Dressed at the Met Ball 2014

The red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala, an annual fund-raiser for the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute, is a crossroads of the arts, fashion and entertainment. Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief and chair of the event since 1995, oversees both the benefit committee and the star-studded guest list.

The annual fundraiser benefits the Met's Costume Institute and serves as an opening celebration for their annual fashion exhibit — this year featuring designer Charles James in a new show titled "Beyond Fashion."

Charles James, the fabled fashion designer, once declared, “I’m the most copied person in the world.” But that Anglo-American couturier, who died in 1978, could never have imagined why his glamorous 1953 “Clover Leaf” dress was being meticulously recreated and scrutinized now — all 10 pounds of it.

This is no retailer knockoff. Only by analyzing his complex sculptural designs from the inside out could curators from the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute accurately present “Charles James: Beyond Fashion,” the exhibition that will inaugurate its $40 million Anna Wintour Costume Center on May 8. The show gives a glimpse of the past — and the Met’s high-tech future.
