Not for the faint hearted By now the pictures from last night’s annual Met Gala have gone everywhere and people the world over are mulling over the photos in a state of awe and confusion. Awe because it takes something special to pull off a dress that looks like it came from the future without looking like you’ve gone a little crazy, and confusion as to how us ‘normal’ folk (whatever that is) are supposed to try and do the same. The theme of this year’s event was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology and there was no shortage of that from Beyoncé’s latex gown to Kim K’s silver Balmain creation. We feel like, with a little tweaking and a whole lot of subtlety, we can all give the look a go. Here are some of the best Met Gala inspired pieces we have found ...
