Last night, east met west at the place where art meets fashion. For fans of both high fashion and high art, the annual Met Gala is one of most highly anticipated events of the year. The theme of this year's gala— China: Through the Looking Glass— served as ample inspiration for the guests' attire, and the celebrities, designers and other red-carpet revelers delivered in ensembles that ranged from the tame and traditional to the extravagant and avant-garde in an on-theme colour palette of deep reds, jade greens, shimmering metallics and classic black and white. Here are 6 looks we loved and the shoes and bags to go with both on the red carpet and off!
