I can’t get over the cobwebby Zac Posen gown that actress Christina Ricci wore at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala on Monday. This dress brings the drama!
The gala marked the opening of the Costume Institute’s Alexander McQueen exhibit. I was surprised by how few attendees wore McQueen dresses. Maybe all the good ones are being exhibited in the museum! Anyway, I think Ricci’s choice had more of a McQueen vibe than any of the other non-McQueen designs there. It’s also the one dress I saw that made me think, “I WANT IT!” Alas! It will have to go on my list of fantasy dresses. The other two are this anatomically correct artwork/dress by Laura Munday …
… and the two-tone Dolce & Gabbana leopard dress that Rihanna shamelessly flaunted in front of me.
I still have hope that I’ll find the D&G dress on eBay or in a consignment store. As for the other two, I expect my love will remain forever unrequited.
