As the morning sun shone down upon us, the stars got ready for the studded carpet of The Met steps for this year’s gala of Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion. The highly anticipated night of opulence and glory has arrived once again. With a dress code inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story, The Garden of Time, set to explore flowers and their symbolism of beauty, innocence, and youth, A-listers and designers showcased their interpretation of the dystopian tale of the cyclical irony of human history and degression of nature.
