The Met Ball 2015 is the Oscars of the fashion world where guests from the the star-studded list dress up in their best to match the theme of the exhibit while making a stunning statement on the red carpet. This year, Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey hosted a table at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit in New York tonight, to mark the new “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition.

She completed the red carpet look with a black feather cape, black silk box clutch and black leather cage detail boots. Sporting a daring cleavage in a plunging semi-sheer gown, the 44 year old supermodel also dressed her face with Burberry make-up.Chinese actress, Tang Wei, was also dressed from head-to-toe in Burberry. She opted for a silver tulle gown with hand-sewn crystals and contrast framing detail and teamed it up with a black suede fringe detail clutch bag and black silk shoes.
