Fantasy Dressing the Met Ball Guests
The Met Ball is like the Oscars for the fashion industry: all the best people in all the best dresses. This year's theme, punk, presents an interesting conundrum: will people go all out, liberty spikes and Givenchy nose rings and all, or just throw some studs on a Chanel suit and call it pseudo-punk?

You have to respect designer who follows his own vision despite the warp speed pace of fashion changing around him.

In a small showroom on the Rue Saint Martin, Mr. Yamamoto, as usual, used a range of real people and fashion models--young and old, large and slim sizes --a reflection of the real people who purchase his clothes. When the show ended, guests exiting one way and models another--some of the dressed-to-the-nines editors (blood red elbow gloves on one and a rabbit hat and blue Mongolian fur on another) seemed more done up then the models. And maybe that has always been the point for the designer who pushes boundaries only with how he cuts the clothes, often using the same fabrics season after season:
