It’s time for my annual tradition of featuring what Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, wore to the Met Gala in honor of the Costume Institute’s spring exhibit which is called “China: Through the Looking Glass.” I figured Anna would wear Chanel and I was not wrong! Chanel seems to be her go-to design house these days, for most of her suits, and many of her formal wear choices. What do you think of this Chanel creation? I love the color on her, the floral sleeves on the dress, as well as the exquisite beading of the fabric. I also like its nod to the Chinese theme of the exhibit.

Interesting to note that Anna is wearing a dark pedicure since she normally wears no polish of any kind on her nails, either her hands or her feet. I’m assuming it’s just for tonight to go with her dress and not a change of policy for her regarding nail polish. Do note that she is wearing her old trusty standbys, the nude Manolo Blahnik leather strapped high-heeled slingbacks, and what looks to be a diamond collet necklace, another of her great favorites, which you can see in more detail in the last shot below.

Let me know what you think of Anna’s dress. If you have time, there is an interesting article over at the New York Times about the Met Gala and how it is most definitely Anna Wintour’s party.
