Celebrating the opening of an exhibition dedicated to couturier Charles James, the stars stuck to an elegant dress code with flawless make-up and beautiful hairstyles to match.

THE Met Ball 2014 Celebrating couturier Charles James, this years Met Ball was full of floor sweeping classic couture gowns, however some dresses stood out with a new and modern take on old school elegance. We loved Charlize Theron in her directional black and white Dior gown with a tuxedo jacket casually hanging from the shoulders. Lily Aldridge mixed Hollywood glamour with this years big metallic trend in a beautifully draped gown by Michael Kors. And last but not least Victoria Beckham in a sharp column dress of her own design, no cleavage, no legs, no "too-tight" waist, just pure white perfection.

2014 Met Gala Red Carpet - 10 Least Favorite Looks So, tonight was one of the biggest fashion events of the year. The 2014 Met Gala red carpet. The theme for this year's Gala was “Charles James: Beyond Fashion,” emphasizing the designer's preference for traditional '40s and '50's traditional ”White Tie & Decorations.” That being said, here are some list of of my least favorite looks. These were runners-up to my overall choice for Worst Dressed which will be posted separately. 1 - Chloe Grace Moretz in Chanel-Paris Dallas collection. It is not surprising that pieces from one of my least favorite Chanel collections of recent note would end up on my "Worst" list. I appreciate the stylist trying to pick something more youthful, but I would prefer to see this on the red carpet for a movie premiere, not at the Met Gala. 2. Katie Holmes in Marchesa.

“Fashion is what is rare, correctly proportioned, and though utterly discrete, libidinous.” – Charles James all photos : NJ Goldston, The Blonde & the Brunette It’s a tradition. As soon as I land in New York, my first steps, before I get ready, is to make my way to Fifth and 58th. Bergdorf Goodma
Before tonight's Met Ball, here's everything you need to know about Charles James:
I know Met Ball, Vogue, blah, but I am so excited to see Charles James exhibit. When I drew dresses that's what they looked like in my head.
stasera Met Ball!! "Anna Wintour obviously wasn't best pleased with the outcome of last year's punk-themed Met Ball, because this year she wants it to be significantly more exclusive - hence the grand Charles James theme and White Tie dress code that was recently announced." "Anna wants more exclusivity and high fashion," a source tells The Hollywood Reporter, though points out that Kim Kardashian, who appears on the most recent US Vogue cover, will still get an invite".

I can't sleep.for whatever reasons. Today is Cinco De Mayo. Most people will probably be worrying about where the turn up will take place at the local sundry for this festive occasion; Clamoring to bars and happy hours for the best margarita and corona deals, however, my fashion mongrels know what today is. Today is the SUPERBOWL of fashion! Today is The Met Ball in NYC! I have only wanted two real things in life: 1) Meet MC Hammer 2) Go to The Met Ball Frank Ocean is performing at this years gala. This is hosted by Vogue magazine and it's $25,000 per ticket, if you're invited to even attend. All proceeds go to the metropolitan museum of art, Costume Institute. If I'm ever blessed with an opportunity to go, I would be in Ozwald Boateng from head to toe and my date would be either Naomi, Linda, or Christy (one of the original six) This years event will pay homage to the work of Charles James, America's first couturier. I love the arts and I appreciate events like this that celebrate fashion and the design ...
NEW YORK, United States — I would guess that we all have a short list of people, now dead, with whom we would love to have had at least one face-to-face conversation. At the top of my fashion list is the American designer Charles James. That is why I am so pleased that for only the second time since…
Charles James (1906 Berkshire - 1978 New York City) was a fashion designer known as America's first couturier. He is considered a master of cutting and is known for his highly structured aesthetic. (Charles James : Wedding dress 1938)

The new Anna Wintour Costume Center of the Met's Costume Institute will feature an exhibit on Charles James
Never one to let sartorial injustice go uncorrected, Anna Wintour has instituted a radical change in the dress code for an event celebrating both the inauguration of a rebranded Anna Wintour Costume Center and an exhibition on the great designer Charles James. She stipulated full evening dress and decorations for the men. That, for the benefit of those of us who grew up under the dark cloud of Casual Friday, means a black tailcoat, a waistcoat, a wing-collared shirt and white bow tie. Let’s not forget the sheer silk socks, patent leather evening pumps, medals and rosettes. True, the closest most American guys are likely to have come to this archaic get-up is playing Monopoly. That is probably just as well, since it turns out the new sartorial ideal for Costume Institute dandies comes fairly close to that of the game board’s icon, Uncle Milburn Pennybags.
