Events at the Metropolitan Museum of Art are always beyond glamorous and attract high-end fashion and its admirers. So naturally Burberry was on hand to dress some of the biggest names in the entertainment and fashion industry.
Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer, hosted a table at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 2011 Costume Institute Benefit that took place in New York City last night.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, headquartered in New York and is a museum and library of art, encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts - so it is only fitting that designers feel drawn, and privileged, to showcase their work at this historic location.
