Charting the Street Style Influence of the Met Gala

Street style has changed a lot since it became a serious fascination of the fashion industry, but it’s hard to argue with its influence over our closets. And this season it wasn’t so much about getting your hands on a particular “must-have” item, likeDior’s So Real sunnies or Gucci’s fur loafers, as it was about embracing a vintage-y, East-meets-West vibe: Jenny Walton was snapped in a slew of richly embroidered Chinese silk jackets from New York’s Pearl River Mart; Susie Bubble mixed bird and floral prints right down to her painted Gucci bag; and editors from New York to Paris wore satin blouses, robes, and qipao marieprom over their jeans.

Like most trends, you could chalk it up to a feeling in the air. But it’s safe to assume those showgoers also visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass,” where clips of Wong Kar-Wai’s popular film In the Mood for Love were interspersed with runway looks inspired by traditional Chinese art and dress. Consider John Galliano’s Spring ’93 collection, which featured dragon motifs inspired by iconic Chinese actress Anna May Wong’s ensembles, or Alexander McQueen’s corseted, blossom-covered gown from Fall 2006. Tom Ford’s Yves Saint Laurent gown from Fall 2004, which was decorated with densely sequined pagodas, actually stopped visitors in their tracks. And there was no shortage of centuries-old Chinese art to take in—how could a fashionable mind not be inspired? This reporter picked up a new pair of embroidered slides from Pearl River—only to find out another Vogue.com writer had the same idea. (PS: If you missed the exhibition, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look in Andrew Rossi’s new documentary, The First Monday in May.)

The Met’s latest exhibition, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology,” opens on May 2, and we’re betting it will have a similar effect on the way we dress for the rest of the year. Will high-shine metallics like silver, gold, and graphite replace banal sweatshirts and bombers? Will making a statement become more about techy embellishments than cut-up jeans and graphic tees? You’ll have to follow Vogue Runway’s street style coverage in June and September to find out.

Jessica Alba’s Spring Street Style Includes This Surprising Color Combo

Let's be honest — the girl looks good!

A week into spring, Jessica Alba has already perfected her not-winter-not-yet-warm-weather style. In New York City on March 29, the Honest co-founder looked fresh in a neutral palette with one unexpected splash of color.

In town to give a sneak peek of her new denim line with DL1961, Alba paired the black cropped pair from her collection with the bassike Dot Silk Shirt ($380, bassike.com) and white lace-up oxford heels. But instead of sticking to her black-and-white palette, Alba, 34, threw on a double-breasted, knee-length Brock Collection blush coat ($2,990, modaoperandi.com) for a pastel accent.

The mom of two, who is the face of DL1961’s spring line, will debut her 10 pieces in the fall.

“My inspiration for most things in life is always the ’90s supermodels: Cindy, Naomi, Claudia. Those bodies!” she told Vogue. “The jeans that I’m designing are going to celebrate women’s bodies and show off those curves.”
