Liu is all smiles as she prepares to be fitted for her dress.

The Costume Institute Gala is an unforgettable experience for all its attendees, but nothing compares to the thrill of going for the very first time. Newly appointed Estee Lauder spokesperson, Liu Wen made her first trip to the Met’s annual fest this year and the journey leading up to the party, was almost as eventful as the night itself. Finding the perfect look to stand out on the notoriously competitive red carpet is easier said than done; the creation of a Met-worthy look requires a whole team, and a little bit of trial and error. MDC followed Liu to star stylist Mary Alice Stephenson‘s studio, where she embarked on a fashion journey and found the ensemble that landed her on all those best dressed lists.

    Love the final shot of Liu, it’s rather poetic. The dress (evidently inspired by salwar kameez) itself is exquisite.
