You can always count on Daphne Guinness
to make a grand entrance at a party. For the 2011 Met Ball she paid tribute to her late friend Alexander McQueen by wearing the brand's exquisite and incredibly detailed lilac feathered ballgown.
The daring heiress topped off her look with the bridle shoes from the brand's fall 2011 collection. Not at all bad for a woman who got dressed in the window at Barneys!
Fashion took over New York as the industry put on their finest for the year's biggest event—the Met Gala. This year, the event honored the late Alexander McQueen with a glam event and exquisite museum collection. From Hollywood stars to the most talented fashion designers, everyone who's anyone was there. The event was geld on May 2, 2011 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
For fashion mavens, there is no event more anticipated than the Met's Costume Institute Gala (well, except for maybe the royal wedding!). But speaking of royals, this year's gala is a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. See the best and worst dressed fashionistas at the Met Gala 2011!
