The Met Gala 2011

I know the Met Gala is old news for most of you but I've been in New York for the last week and have only just had a chance to write again! Amongst all the incredible things I got up to (including an interview for an internship out there) I went to watch the Met Gala red carpet with my good friend from Cocos Tea Party and we weren't disappointed when it comes to seeing high-profile celebs...

I know the photos are rather terrible but I was so excited about seeing everyone that my photography skills went right out the window. J-Lo stepped out of a car right infront of where we were stood which was massively exciting and seeing Caleb Followill about 6ft away is enough to induce a Kings of Leon hysteria in anyone, let alone a Followill fan!

Whilst I was in New York I also had the chance to visit the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art which was so incredible words wouldn't do it justice. I've never been so emotionally overwhelmed by an exhibition before; seeing all of the late McQueen's most astounding work brought together in one place was just fantastic. I really recommend you go visit if you get the chance because it was just beautiful.

I should have more time to blog again now as my latest project Fred (a new men's magazine) has finished for the time being. What did you think of the Met Gala dresses?
