Fashion+Style: MET Gala 2011

Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala 2011

Featuring “Savage Beauty: Alexander McQueen

As many of us know, this years Metropolitan Gala paid tribute to the late designer impresario Alexander McQueen. As usual, the event is a sartorialist’s dream with fashion heavies and celebrities coming out in the season’s haute couture and custom gowns and tuxedos to turn the heads of their peers and the paparazzi.

We’ll showcase some of our favorites from the night and ask you who do you think was the best or worst dressed male and female.

Male Trends: Velvet Slippers


Kanye West

 Male Trend: Velvet slippers

By Xo Nim, The FashionRazzi

The Velvet Slipper didn’t just spring into the market in recent times; it has been worn for many years mostly by the upper class (Gossip Girl type, extremely rich) older man.

Before the influx of the Metro-Sexual man, men wanted to dress very manly!!  (I don’t know if that makes any sense). No fitted pants or jackets, tennis shoes, or shoes that could be worn only by men, no nicely fitted tailored shirts; before Tom Ford came and showed us how a suit should be worn and Zara made the skinny suit and pant the way forward.

So now, the velvet slippers are “allowed” to be worn by the masculine man! And they tend to portray Seriousness and Relaxed at the same time, Prestige, Class, Gentlemanliness and Ultimate Fashion. They are now also worn mostly by the young man! You gotta love fashion though; it’s only a matter of time before everyone catches on to everything!

Another great thing about them now is that they can be monogrammed; you can customize your shoes with your initials, family crest or whatever really on the front of the shoes, which it makes it even more appealing to people who want something unique. As much as everyone wants to tail the trend, people also want to be different in some way, shape or form.

Designer offerings:

Ralph Lauren




Herring Shoes

Aspinal of London


Stubbs & Wooten

Del Toro

How to wear them:

Mr. West pairs them with the classic black tux


Casual and comfy

Casual yet a dapper approach

Out and about lending an air of affluence


Many thanks to Xo Nim and The FashionRazzi for allowing us to use this post.  Look for more posts from them and the launch of their much anticipated website and blog.
