A walk on the wild side

GILES couture at the Met Ball 2014

As the biggest society event on the international fashion calendar, it’s no wonder some GILES couture was called for at the Met Ball 2014. US Vogue set the mood by sending photographer Cass Bird onto the Manhattan streets with a gaggle of supers wearing an array of sumptuous gowns inspired by the Charles James-themed gala.

Ju Xiaowen, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Alana Zimmer, Tilda Lindstam and Grace Mahary giggled and tottered their way around midtown steeped in oodles of lace, silk, feathers and organza. But none looked prettier than Hanne in two different GILES creations. No glass slippers vanished but the outing certainly caused traffic to stop and Instagram to sizzle.
