musings from the ladies of a day in may events


the met gala

We have spent the last few days swooning over the decor and dresses seen at this years Met Gala. The theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology” inspired stunning looks on the red carpet (from Claire Danes light up gown to Emma Watson’s sustainable dress made of recycled bottles!)  as well as eye catching event decor. The 65 foot double helix inside the Metropolitan Museum’s Great Hall was made of 80,000 red roses, 200,000 silk roses and laser cut lace. Talk about a focal point!


Vogue captured the installation process on Instagram!

The prettiest place settings. Pale blue and lavender linens allowed the custom designed charger plates to take center stage.


Guests entered dinner through a dreamy wall of roses!

The evening’s theme and the sartorial choices on the red carpet perfectly capture how design and technology are not mutually exclusive. The gala looked like another unforgettable celebration!
