THE MET OPERA 2018 OPENING GALA

One of our very favorite ways to celebrate the start of the Autumn season in New York is by attending the opening gala at the MET Opera! It is a truly special evening that begins at about 5 PM with a cocktail reception (the perfect time to see and be seen). I’m pleased to say I noticed that people are getting properly into the spirit of things by putting some effort into dressing up for the occasion. There were lots of gorgeous gals in glorious gowns and men in tails – all rather sublime. Only a handful of people didn’t dressed appropriately (jeans and shirts simply won’t do it folks)!

In any case. perhaps the MET’s “Last Night at the MET” social media feed is providing some inspiration – it is certainly a great opportunity to be captured in one’s fineries by the exquisite eye of photographer Rose Callahan.

The splendid space; dressing up; the live performances and sets: its all rather magical! Of course a post opera dinner at a fine restaurant like Majorelle is a must to cap off a perfect evening!

For this years’ opening gala, I’m captured sporting a Tom Ford magenta silk faille evening jacket, a white ruffled tuxedo shirt, black wool tuxedo pant, magenta, white, black and grey silk pocket square, and ivory silk velvet ikat slippers, a silk bow tie by Le Noeud Papilion, Seaman Schepps evening set in rock crystal, onyx and diamond, Cartier Tank Divan, and my fragrance is the very elegant Creed Imperial Millesime.
