John Galliano and his muse...

Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, saw a galaxy of designers walk the Red Carpet with their model "dates" to deliberate the "Model As Muse" theme.Seen here is John Galliano, dressed in a shimmering grey suit with draw pants and silvery shoes giving it a powered effect, with his "date" Marion Cotillard(she being the current brand ambassador for Christian Dior made her the obvious choice to accompany John).The event on the whole drew varied reactions; while some decried it as a vulgar display of ostentatious luxury given the state of the economy others were too embroiled in "Who wore what" or rather "Who should have worn what" debates.The event had its share of controversies in the form of Azzedine Alaïa's exclusion from it which snowballed into his muses Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell skipping it as a mark of protest!! Do we feel the hand of Anna Wintour somewhere? And finally, $7500 would have made you part of the guest list and an even more generous $250,000 would have seen you share the dinner table with the fashion gods!!
