OPERA AND LAST NIGHT AT THE MET

Scott Mcbee and I were recently treated to the opening night of the new production of La Traviata at the MET Opera. I simply adore these opening night galas, and dressing up to celebrate the evening and those who have put so much into these performances!

The site “Last Night At the MET” and their accompanying instagram feed is a wonderful place to find pictures of yours truly (like those on this post!) and pictures of many other opera goers as well. It’s a place “…where the opera is grand and so is the style.” There are so many interesting interpretations of formal attire these days. Needless to say it’s a #mustfollow, and certainly encourages all to don their “gay apparel.” I’m thrilled to say it must be working, as more and more people are dressing appropriately for the opera!

We were so happy to have been captured by the exquisite eye of Rose Callahan who documents the highlights of these magical evenings.

I’m sporting a Tom Ford chartreuse silk velvet evening jacket, ruffled tuxedo shirt, tuxedo pants, ivory, black and grey silk pocket square, black silk faille bow tie, leopard slippers, Cartier Tank Divan watch, Seaman Schepps evening set, a bit of Tom Ford Bronzing gel for a sun kissed glow, and my fragrance is Creed Imperial Millesime. Scott McBee is sporting a Tom Ford brown velvet smoking jacket.

    My Dear Penelope,

    I am thrilled to say we are seeing more and more people dressed up for the opera!

    One has to dress up as a form of respect and to pay homage to those who have put their hearts and souls into these performances!

    We cant wait to share the maisonette with you – we hope to wrap up construction in January!

    Much Love

    JA
