There aren't many events that can trump the high style of the Met Gala, but this week's best-dressed women didn't let that stop them from bringing glamour to other events.
Because while Monday's gala — which celebrated The Costume Institute's new exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture — was filled to capacity with the industry's bold-faced names, so were the parties Net-a-Porter and Dolce & Gabbana threw the weekend before it. Giovanna Battaglia hosted the opening party for the Italian brand's Fifth Avenue boutique, and Natalie Massenet played host at the e-tailer's Saturday night party in downtown New York.
And plenty of other stylish women attended parties throughout the week. Actress Carey Mulligan looked sharp in a Lanvin suit at a screening of The Great Gatsby, and Alexa Chung donned Dior at a party thrown by the Tate Americas Foundation. Linda Fargo's black and white coat, at left, clashed beautifully with the wallpaper at the Frieze Art Fair preview.
