Celebrities and fashion icons from around the world arrived in New York City to attend the 2014 Met Gala with legendary American Couturier, Charles James as the theme for the night. Known for his iconic “Clover Leaf” ball gown, Charles James showcased his lavish gowns as works of art and rightly so! With various art installations and priceless pieces on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the gala was filled with all the glitz and glamor of the fashion sphere. A marked return to “old world elegance on the red carpet“, as pointed out by Vogue.com was an entirely apt expression.
Models wearing Charles James gowns in the photograph by Cecil Beaton emanate pure luxury and elegance. Exclusively.in has recreated the same theme using exquisite creations by pioneering Indian designers including JJ Valaya, Anju Modi, Gaurav Gupta, Shantanu & Nikhil, Samant Chauhan, Tarun Tahiliani & Varun Bahl.
The two-fold tribute to the master of sheer spectacle & dramatic couture, Charles James and our very own legendary Indian designers have set the bar high with gowns that are nothing short of works of art. Through the iconic photograph by Cecil Beaton, we’ve shared our interpretation of Indian red-carpet luxury. So, grab a glass of champagne and revel in the beauty of contemporary Indian designs that we hope will be a theme at a MetGala matched to the effervescence of the current affair!
