2012 Met Costume Institute Gala Trends: Touch Me Texture
A trend that we've been banging on about for you to try out for Winter has slipped up the fashion hierarchy, and is having a major influence on red carpet looks, in particular today's glam 2012 Met Gala offerings. Texture, and not in the faux fur variety, was all over the red rug — a myriad of guises. Rihanna wore an alligator stamped Tom Ford sheath, Leighton Meester experimented with Marchesa tulle, Rooney Mara contrasted leather with lace in Givenchy, Carey Mulligan worked a metallic fish-scaled Prada number and Cate Blanchett was feathered head-to-toe courtesy of Alexander McQueen. Take a gander at the plethora of way celebrities incorporated this tactile trend into their Met Gala looks.
