Every year on the first Monday in May, the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art holds its annual gala. The glitterati, lucky enough to receive invitations, often come dressed according to theme. This year, the theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology, which refers to hand-made couture versus machine made read-to-wear clothing. Some of the guests wore couture attire that looked high tech in style, while others wore garments made of high tech fabrics. I loved many of the styles on the red carpet, but I included the ones that I thought were especially on point. I hope to see the exhibit soon and I will report on it once I do.
