MET Gala 2012: Chanel Iman


When American model Chanel Iman showed up on the 2012 MET Gala red carpet not only on the arm of American designer Tom Ford as his "supermodel date" but also adorned in one of his gowns, she caused (or shall I say the gown caused) quite a stir! The gorgeous pheasant feather moire tulle evening gown hugged the delicate curves of Chanel Iman's body and stood out as a piece of fashion art.

Every year, MET (The Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute in New York City) holds an elite fundraiser and fashion exhibit all centered around a particular theme. For the 2012 MET Gala held on May 7th, the theme was "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations." This theme gave tribute and respectful honor to two female designers who shared some similarities in views and design. Obviously, male designer Tom Ford wanted to stir up some impossible conversations of his own by adorning Chanel Iman in a gown that seemed to give honor to two different fabrics with varying textures elegantly showcasing the curvature of the female body.





This sheer, low-cut, high-slit sexy feather gown first appeared in his 2012 Autumn/Winter Ready-to-Wear Womenswear Collection modeled by Iris Strubegger in a fashion video released in March 2012.

Yes, yes ... Tom Ford ... uhhh, he gets it right!
