Ahead of the Met Gala, which kicks off tonight, Vogue celebrated the “Last Saturday in April” — an official pre-party held in New York City.
“Celebrating #lastsaturdayinapril with @voguemagazine vogue.com in the 6BC Botanical Garden amongst the amazing #treepeony #MidsummerNightsDream meets anime wearing @ralphlauren @saturdaysnyc and floral trousers and shoes @topolinashop,” Hamish Bowles captioned a photo from the event.
Supermodel Ashley Graham shared her look for the evening on Instagram, which included a dome lace corded appliqué dress by Jonathan Simkhai, teamed with black sandals.
Alexa Chung had on a dark green Simone Rocha jumpsuit and carried a rabbit-shaped purse.
“Fun time with @sophfei at @voguemagazine’s #LastSaturdayinApril party,” designer Anna Sui tweeted. “Loved her #AnnaSuiFall17 hair 😉 xxx Anna.”
This year, the Met Gala honors Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo with the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Live coverage of the red carpet begins on Vogue.com at 7 p.m. ET, and E!
