The Met Gala-Alexander McQueen:Savage Beauty

The world of fashion came together last night to celebrate the annual Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala. This years exhibit took on a somber tone as it celebrated the life's work of Alexander McQueen. Not only could his looks be seen in the museum but on many of the attendees, as well. This is one of my absolute favorite events of the year because everyone takes more fashion risks since this event isn't so highly covered by the national media. Here are my many favorite looks of the night (I apologize now for the overwhelming amount of photos, I loved a lot of outfits)!!
