Met Costume Institute Gala 2014

 Last night was the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala featuring the work of Charles James and honoring the opening of the Anna Wintour Costume Institute Galleries (below Egyptian Wing). Every year the Met transforms it galleries for the occasion. This year, I had the privilege of watching numerous companies work their magic, and enjoyed a lovely conversation with noted bartender Colin Peter Field of the Ritz Paris' Bar Hemingway, now closed.
