For midnight blue Seventies style dinner suit, non-white shirt and fit bird combo.
Fashion designer Posen's ingredients for winning look at The Met Ball: wide satin lapelled deep blue evening suit with strong silhouette, nude dress shirt with turn down collar and studs, quite big strong nose, real bow tie, real Cristina Ricci type actress on arm in ones own evening dress. NB. Shirt collar is v.correct and chic, colour sets apart from the too, too common black and white evening options, and is teamed perfectly with Riccis frock. Phew, what a scorcher, but apparently easy when you know how.
