The day before the annual ball, organised and hosted by Anna Wintour, to raise money for the museum, a dedicated room was opened and it was named the Anna Wintour Costume Centre at the Metropolitan Museum in NY!! The ribbon was cut by her friend and first Lady, Michelle Obama who looked resplendent as ever in a green brocade and cream dress with co-ordinated green jewels.  Anna Wintour looked elegant and emotional showing her softer side and obvious pride at the honour bestowed on her in recognition of her achievements in fashion and by helping to raise a ton of cash for the museum.

The next day saw the cabaret that is the Met Ball and at $25,000 a ticket you would expect a proper do!! I for one am very happy to gently peruse the images of all the glitterati with a smattering of amusement and pick out my favourite outfits. Apparently Madonna was shunned by Miss Wintour when she revealed that she intended to attend the gala wearing bandages!!! Hmmmm, I wonder what double entendre was meant there!?

‘We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Obama’s on their successful campaign to be re-elected!!!  A lot of us are relieved that Barrack can serve a second term and be given the chance to implement and execute his more popular measures with care and consideration and with the same passion and verve that he shows us in his public speaking which is inspiring..

A nod to the style and grace of his beautiful wife…Michelle, CONGRATULATIONS Barrack Obama on all fronts!!
