Once again I had the privilege to cover the red carpet with the Met Museum‘s social media team capturing what is the coined “the party of the year” for the museum’s new fashion exhibition China Through the Looking Glass. From gowns that took two years to create, to ones that appear completely see-though, it was one breathtaking moment after the next and I’m happy to share with you images from the front lines, captured using my iPhone 6, of my favorite Met Gala 2015 moments….
Oh what a night! Here are my favorite red carpet arrivals from my Instagram takeover for the Met Museum. It was gowns galore, celebrities, designers and muses, musicians at their best and anything / everything I could capture all from an iPhone 5s… isn’t technology wonderful? Here is what I saw, some of my favorite outtakes and intimate moments…life is glittery and magical when you are attending the one and only Met Gala…

Beauty that never fades.

This weekend I visited the Robert Frank’s exhibition of his work The Americans. I could relate to many of the underlining subjects he captured and I’m not so sure the America we live in today is any if at all different. I sit on the subway and look at all the sad faces just as the ones looking back at him on the Trolley in New Orleans.
“Robert Frank, Swiss, unobtrusive, nice, with that little camera that he raises and snaps with one hand he sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film, taking rank among the tragic poets of the world.” ~From the book Introduction by Jack Kerouac
