The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala is heralded as the Oscars of the East Coast. With a sea of movie stars, musicians and notable personalities all in attendance each year, the event showcases the best that fashion has to offer.
Thanks to its Charles James-inspired “white tie and decorations” dress code, this year’s Cinco de Met Gala is sure to live up to the hype. Just look at the guest list: Among the confirmed attendees are celeb moms Maggie Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Nicole Richie, Naomi Watts, Kim Kardashian and Sarah Jessica Parker. We absolutely cannot wait to see how these fashion icons interpret the theme of old world elegance.
While we expect to see many an elbow-length white glove on tonight’s red carpet, if last year is any indicator, the manicures will be just as extravagant as the ball gowns, updos and, of course, accessories.
This mini mani Monday, let your little couture enthusiast in on the fun. As you sip on a margarita and wait for the cameras to start rolling (tonight at 6:30 PM EST), treat your little girl (and yourself) to an ultra-glam manicure inspired by Met Gala nails of yore.
