Met Gala Pics Dominate the News

As expected, coverage of the Met Gala, or, really, its red carpet, is dominating the news this morning. Stylist has narrowed down their picks for best and worst, but a quick Google search for “Met Gala 2012″ has a picture of just about every person who showed up. Mad Men‘s January Jones (left) made the best dressed list.

The Times devotes today’s online Style section to the Gala, with news of Amazon’ red-carpet entrance into the fashion world. As we mentioned yesterday, Amazon is a major sponsor of the exhibit “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.” And while the company has sold clothing previously, it has had a problem with appeal. To correct that, it’s “going luxe” with emphasis on photography and presentation. Which goes to show that what you say is as important as how you say it.
