Kendall Jenner Shows Off Her White Dress For Met GalaBy: Zach Walton - May 6, 2014
Kendall Jenner looks great in just about anything. It kind of comes with the territory of being a model, but the reality TV star can look extra extravagant when need be. In this case, a charity event had Jenner busting out a new dress.
Us Weekly reports that Jenner attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. The event serves to raise money for the museum while simultaneously kicking off its annual fashion exhibition. This year’s theme is Charles James: Beyond Fashion and it will feature a number of his works. As such, those attending the Met Gala were no doubt wearing designs inspired by James. That’s where Jenner’s dress comes in.
Over on Instagram, Jenner showed off the white dress that she wore to the gala. Compared to some of the dresses we’re used to seeing at award events, Jenner’s dress exudes a simplistic beauty that we don’t see very often anymore in fashion. It’s a breath of fresh air and Jenner looks all the more beautiful for it. Check it out for yourself:
Here’s another shot of her dress as she attempts to sit down in it:
Fashion wasn’t the only thing on Jenner’s mind at the event though as there’s photographic evidence of her goofing off and having a grand old time:
While the Met Gala may have already come and gone, the Charles James exhibit is just beginning. Starting this month and running until August, visitors to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute will be able to take a look at some of James’ most famous designs. They will also gain a better understanding of how he designed fashion which is all the more impressive that he had no formal training:
After designing in his native London, and then Paris, James arrived in New York City in 1940. Though he had no formal training, he is now regarded as one of the greatest designers in America to have worked in the tradition of the Haute Couture. His fascination with complex cut and seaming led to the creation of key design elements that he updated throughout his career: wrap-over trousers, figure-eight skirts, body-hugging sheaths, ribbon capes and dresses, spiral-cut garments, and poufs. These, along with his iconic ball gowns from the late 1940s and early 1950s—the “Four-Leaf Clover,” “Butterfly,” “Tree,” “Swan,” and “Diamond”—will be showcased in the exhibition.
