One of fashion’s biggest nights is back, and celebrities have brought out their very best looks for the affair.
Held in New York City, the theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” serves as the second iteration of the Costume Institute exhibition’s series focused on American style. The first part, titled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” was last year’s theme.
In addition to this year’s theme, there is also an associated dress code: gilded glamour. This style of dress reflects the gilded age of New York that historically went from 1870 to 1890.
