Vera Wang at The Met Gala

The world's #1 fashion model, Joan Smalls, walked the red carpet at last night's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with Vera Wang, wearing a custom designed deep nude strapless silk tulle gown with hand tucked body and sheer skirt accented by a center front skirt slit by the designer. This year's "White Tie and Decorations" attired gala honors the Anglo-American designer Charles James, the first U.S. courtier and designer to 20th century socialites, including Millicent Rogers and Gloria Venderbilt.

Also walking the red carpet in Vera Wang last night were Alexis Stoudemire, wife of New York Knicks' forward Amar'e Stoudemire, and Dr. Samantha Boardman.

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
