Florence Welch In Valentino Couture - 2014 Met GalaFlorence Welch returned to the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted on Monday (May 5) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

It may come as no surprise that the flame-haired songstress was in Valentino, donning a Spring 2014 Couture textural, butterfly-flocked and appliqued cape over a languid, flowing rock-grey gown.

Yes, it was more of an expected look from Florence, who perhaps could have pushed the envelope more for the momentous Met occasion. After all, she could have pulled off any measure of extravagance with graceful, statuesque aplomb.

But the elaborate detail of the menagerie that alighted on her overcoat was impact enough. It was the art piece here.
