While lots of superstars failed miserably in dressing to fit the "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" theme of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala Monday night, Beyoncé, as usual, got it just right.
The superstar singer wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci made of nude latex embroidered with pearls and hand-painted flowers. The modern latex fabric tied in perfectly with the theme of the gala and the accompanying exhibition about how fashion adapts the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear.
The exhibit opens May 5 and runs through August 14 at the Met.
Beyoncé accessorized the gown with a beige calf leather minaudiére and beige latex platform sandals.
It is the fifth year in row that she has worn a design by Tisci to the gala, which draws an A-list crowd from the music, film and fashion world. This year's guests included Katy Perry, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Houstonian Allison Sarofim, who wore a feathered haute couture gown by Giambattista Valli.
