Met Gala 2014 Fashion Illustrations by Katie Rodgers

Instead of posting photographs from the Met Gala 2014, which I'm sure any fashionista has already seen, and as I'm a huge fan of fashion illustration, I decided to dedicate the post to the most beautiful sketches drawn by fashion illustrator Katie Rodgers. The gowns were a tribute to Charles James, an American designer honoured in the new exhibition at the Met. 

I was shocked when I found out that Rodgers' drawings were each created in only ten minutes, using watercolours and embellished with rhinestones.

Karolina Kurkova's sculptural Marchesa

Sarah Jessica Parker's Oscar de la Renta gown was a modern take on James' famous petal dress, and was Rodgers' favorite of the night.

Blake Lively in Gucci. This dress was one of my favourites from the night.
Emmy Rossum's floral Carolina Herrera.

Sarah Silverman in Zac Posen

The colours in this illustration are magical.

I hope you love these drawings as much as I do.
