Anna Says White Tie

by Eyal de Leeuw | 06.05.14

When Anna Wintor commands White Tie as the official dress code for the Met Gala 2014, both Hamish Bowles and Kanye West obey. The classic dress which is considered the most formal evening dress code in Western fashion is widely accredited to Beau Brummell, the iconic dandy. The history of the White Tie is a fascinating travel through time and style (with numerous political and social references) and amongst the best White Tie dressers of the 20th century are both Fred Astair and ‪Atatürk‬.

Two favorites White Tie dressers from last night (next to Hamish Bowles of course) were Jefferson Hack (in the picture with Dree Hemingway) and Kanye West.

Kanye was wearing it in a Lanvin tailored-to-perfection outfit keeping  his rebellion with the absence of a… tie.
