INSPIRATION Madame Grès 1946... Stella McCartney's MET gala 2014 gown for Rihanna

The French designer Alexis Grès, who originally wanted to be a sculptor, but influenced by her family changed her mind to get trained in haute couture, revolutionized the world of fashion through inventing and refining an unique draping  technique. In this picture [left] Madame Grès is photographed by Eugène Rubin in 1946 with one  of her timeless styles… so timeless, that a similar gown could even be proposed to Rihanna, who wore a beautiful customized white ensemble by the British designer Stella McCartney to this years MET gala event [right].
