This year’s theme, for both the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute exhibition and 2017 Met Gala, is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Opening on May 4, the exhibit will be the first monograph show at the museum to focus on a living designer since its Yves Saint Laurent exhibit in 1983. The show will feature about 120 Comme des Garçons womenswear designs by Kawakubo, dating back to the label’s first runway collection in 1981, all the way to her most recent shows.

Yesterday’s star-studded gala, an homage to the Japanese designer, saw innumerable eminent celebrity guests and designers pay tribute. Amongst them were a number of London names, including fashion staples Lara Stone, dressed in Christopher Kane, Cara Delevingne in Chanel, and Alexa Chung in Erdem, as well as model and activist Adwoa Aboah, who wore a dress by Central Saint Martins first year student Connor Ives. Something Curated compiles a gallery of some of the key London figures who made an appearance at last night’s event.
