The theme of the gala event this year was In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion, which aimed to celebrate inspirational American designers.
Among those taking note of the fashion show – which takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City – was the British Library, which could not help but compare the celebrity looks with slightly more dated works of art.
