StyleQueen101 Exclusive: You Heard It From The Grapevine! Will It Be An ‘Alexander McQueen'(Yes, Please) Themed Metropolitan Charity Gala For May 2nd?

February 22, 2011

From New York Mag’s Blog ‘The Cut’A First Look at the Costume Institute’s ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ Exhibit

Although the exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute won’t open until May 4, a preview was held by Samantha Cameron and Anna Wintour at the Ritz in London this morning (not coincidentally, the same venue where Alexander McQueen showed his first postgraduate show). Also in attendance were Stella McCartney, a longtime friend of McQueen’s and co-chair for this year’s Costume Institute Ball, and Sarah Burton, the label’s head designer. Since many pieces in the exhibit were culled from the McQueen archives in London, the event was a chance for the Americans to thank the Brits for lending the clothes to the Met, as well as to praise McQueen on his home turf. Of course, it was also an opportunity to start hyping this year’s Met Ball, as Cameron did in her speech: “I’m sure that the party on the second of May will be a very, very special night.”
