Unless you either lost your invitation or had zero bars on your smartphone for much of Monday night, then chances are high you followed the action in the buildup to the Met Gala 2014. Next was well represented on red carpet by Rita Ora, Suki Waterhouse, Arizona Muse, Alexa Chung, A$AP Rocky, Jessica Paré, Elettra Wiedemann, and Joy Bryant. The evening of course marked the annual opening of the Costume Institute’s Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibition, which is previewed in this month’s Vogue in a story featuring Maja Salamon, Ola Rudnicka, and Esmerelda Seay-Reynolds. Suffice it to say, this has been the month for all things Charles James and a few more things Next.
