The annual Costume Institute Gala Ball, chaired by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour raises funds for the museum’s fashion department; last year’s event made $9 million. This time, the extravaganza will have a poignant but perhaps more powerful impact: it is dedicated to the British designer Alexander McQueen who is honoured in a posthumous exhibition of his work, mounted less than 15 months after he killed himself, at the age of 40.
