Leave it to designer Marc Jacobs to shake things up at the Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum earlier this week.
He showed up (with Lorenzo Martone) wearing a long black lace tunic (although he referred to it as a dress) by Commes des Garcons over a pair of white boxer shorts, black socks and pilgrim shoes.
As he explained on the Met’s live feed: “I just didn’t want to wear a tuxedo and be boring. I think Miuccia Prada is such a celebration of the unconventional and so it felt like, appropriate, somehow. [Schiaparelli and Prada] are two women that I have always loved the work of. I mean, Schiaparelli is one of my all-time heroes and Miuccia Prada continues to be a hero of mine. I am just looking forward to seeing the exhibition.”
One has to wonder who bought them all. Or did Jacobs just snag the last one?
