The first Monday of May is annually marked with the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year’s Comme des Garçons-themed event coincided with the Rei Kawakubo retrospective. The Met Gala attendees faced a challenge of dressing themselves in the avant-garde way as the dress-code demanded it. I was extremely impatient to see how celebrities would work out the deconstructed with the artsy self-expression. But it seemed that too many guests had misunderstood the invitation notes and interpreted the theme as “red”, while others ignored it entirely. What a shame!

1 мая состоялся ежегодный бал Института костюма, или Met Gala, который проходит в нью-йоркском Metropolitan Museum of Art. Признаюсь честно, я смотрела его почти до 5 утра. Во-первых, мне были интересны костюмы (естественно), а во-вторых, я сидела параллельно на нескольких порталах, где церемонию транслировали в режиме LIVE со всеми любопытными комментариями, которые не услышишь на следующий день.

Традиционно, тему бала задает выставка, к открытию которой он приурочен. В этом году вместе с балом Института костюма открылась ретроспектива Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between. Многим это покажется простым набором слов. Дресс-код: avante-garde, стилистика дизайнера японского происхождения Рей Кавакубо и марки Comme des Garçons. Каково было мое удивление, когда гостей, выдержавших стиль вечера, пришло единицы. Очень и очень жаль, ведь вечер должен быть запоминающимся именно благодаря необычным костюмам. Большая часть знаменитостей просто испугалась смелых форм, художественного самовыражения, сложносочиненных вещей и деконструктивизма; отдав предпочтение голливудскому, изрядно надоевшему, гламуру.
