The Met Gala 2016: Manus x Machina - A Stylist's Diary

Posted by Sarah Pierson on

We teamed up with Gaux Girl Sarah Slutsky, whose client list includes Emma Watson - Sophie Okonedo and Elizabeth Olsen - for a very special project. The task? To create a custom pair of ballerinas for actress Sophie Okonedo (who currently stars in Broadway's much-lauded revival of The Crucible) for the 2016 Met Gala. The result was a one-of-a-kind pair of sterling suede ballerinas, which Sarah paired with a custom dress by Tome.


Cinematique and The Editorialist explored the behind-the-scenes effort that culminate in fashion's biggest night of the year. Follow Sarah as she curates and creates each element of Sophie's look in the (touchable!) video below.
