This year the Costume Gala Institute is celebrating the works of the late and great Alexander McQueen at the Met, New York with the theme of the occassion based around his work.
The ball was filled with the Fashion Elite including Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour and the most talked about female designer of the past week, Sarah Burton. Needless to say, it was a glamourous event and the outfits were stunning to say the least. Many celebrities chose to wear Alexander McQueen, in keeping with the event however TellusFashion can also confirm that the fashion stakes were running high with the likes of the Olsens in Givenchy and Dior respectively, Gwyneth Paltrow and Hailee Steinfeld in Stella McCartney, Crystal Renn and Christina Ricci both looking amazing in Zac Posen and the ever stylish Alexa Chung wearing Christopher Kane. My favourites however, had to be one of my biggest style influences Florence Welsh in Yves Saint Laurent and Leelee Sobieski in Vionnet.

My latest fashion obsession takes inspiration from Christopher Kane’s Pre Season Collection for SS11 which I mention in my post “The Rise of The Scottish Fashion Industry”. This obsession is of course Galaxy Print. This particular print has been used for many different garment shapes including leggings, tunics and bodys and I am dying to get my hands on at least one of them…
After some hours spent scouring Ebay, Asos Market Place and every online retailer I could think of, I stumbled across a fantastic Australian brand: Black Milk. Black Milk has by far, the best offering of Galaxy Print garments and embodies the same kind of brand aesthetics as American Apparel. Needless to say its a very cool and playful brand. So if you’re looking for an outfit (cue cheesy line) that’s out of this world then check them out and maybe take a little fashion inspiration from the pictures below. I can’t wait to try out some of these looks and hoping it will look pretty nice with my newly pink, dip dyed do!
