Anna Wintour and Bee Shaffer reprised their role as the ultimate mother-daughter duo at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.
Staying true to form, they wore respective Chanel and Alexander McQueen looks, as they do each year.
As co-host of the evening, Anna was the belle of the ball in a custom Chanel glittering confection that was inspired by the house’s recent Spring 2017 Haute Couture collection. It was a fantasy of golden paillette embellishment, accented by the capricious fancy of a fur-collared skirt. The necklace struck me as quite unnecessary, though, as perhaps she should have followed Coco’s sage advice to remove one thing before leaving the house.
Accompanied by fiancée Francesco Carrozzini, Bee took a romantic turn in a custom Alexander McQueen Fall 2017 tapestry gown by Sarah Burton that had more of a medieval heroine vibe than anything else—especially with her long, lovely braid.
