Getting Ready For The Met Gala With Sigourney Weaver

For Sigourney Weaver, the Gilded Age describes a period of glittering, stifling excess. “Rich Americans threw their untaxed money around and millions of wild birds were slaughtered to be put on women’s hats,” she says. “Dressing for women was a labour-intensive ritual. Encased in corsets and bustles, women had no freedom of movement.” So when she notes that she can run through Central Park in the glimmering Michael Kors Collection gown she’s wearing for the Met Gala, the styling choice becomes immediately clear.
