Deep reds and shimmery golds dominated as celebrities attending the annual Met Gala embraced this year's inspiration: the massive exhibition titled "China: Through the Looking Glass".

The exhibition takes a look at Chinese fashion through the ages. It juxtaposes the influence of Chinese art, imagery and culture, from Imperial China to the present day, on Western fashion and design.

Rihanna took the red carpet Monday at the Met Gala in a fur-trimmed yellow cape with floral swirls of gold and a train so long it required three wranglers.

As a latecomer, Rihanna had the grand staircase at the Metropolitan Museum of Art all to herself for her big entrance in the ensemble by Chinese designer Guo Pei.

Deep reds and shimmery golds dominated as the multitudes of invited celebrities embraced this year's inspiration: the massive Met exhibition "China: Through the Looking Glass," a lavish look at fashion from the East through the ages.

Kim Kardashian most certainly embraced the evening's vibe - in a revealing, low-cut gown with an East motif done by Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli.

Sarah Jessica Parker, donned a fiery head piece with long side tassels that towered high above her black, one-shoulder gown with a long flower-adorned train.

From Balmain, Justin Bieber showed up in a black jacket slithering with gold dragons.

With 150 dresses, gowns, costumes and accessories from 40 designers on display, "China Through the Looking Glass," which runs from May 7 to Aug. 16, is one of the biggest exhibitions undertaken by the museum.

"I think that the size of the show is quite proportionate to the concept. Everybody looks at the history of the influence of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion, which dates back to the Roman empire," said Andrew Bolton, Curator of the Costume Institute.

"Our story starts in the mid 18th centuries, so a little bit later. But I think what hopefully people will be surprised about it is just the length of the period of time that China was inspired by the West."

More than two years in the making, the show takes visitors on a journey showing how Western designers found inspiration in all things Chinese, from the elaborate embroidered costumes of Imperial China to Shanghai in the 1920s, up to the military garb of the Cultural Revolution.

One room is devoted to opium and the Chinese impact on Yves Saint Laurent's 1977 fall/winter collection with its Mongol-influenced fur jackets and coats.

An oriental garden is peopled with mannequins wearing Chinese-inspired elaborate dresses, coats, skirts and gowns by John Galliano for his 2003 spring/summer collection for the House of Dior.

The show also features clips of Chinese films such as "The Last Emperor," "Raise the Red Lantern" and "Farewell My Concubine" screened in rooms with the Western gowns and outfits they inspired.

Bolton said:"It doesn't just cover costume, it covers decorative art like lacquer, porcelain, jade, bronzes. So the impact has been enormous on Western fashion."

A maze of galleries showcase Chinese calligraphy, perfume bottles and blue-and-white porcelain along with print dresses, fabulous beaded gowns and embroidered jackets by the Western designers influenced by them.(英文文本 via CNTV)
