Considering that this year’s Met Gala was in honor of Charles James and called for white-tie dressing, we had hoped to see regal, floor-length, Oscar-worthy gowns. Most of the guests missed the mark. [Fashionista]

On May 7, Raf Simons, Dior’s creative director will bring his resort collection to Brooklyn. “I immediately loved the feeling,” Simons said of the borough during a preview. Want a hint of what’s to come? Here’s a peek at his inspiration board. [The Cut]

What’s the biggest lesson Nasty Gal’s #GirlBoss, Sophia Amoruso, learned? “There is no normal. What my job was a few years ago was completely different than what it is today. As soon as I have it dialed in, the company changes and the team changes and my role changes as a result. What the company needs is always evolving, and I don’t get to choose what I want to do as much as I thought I would be now — which is OK. It keeps me in this position of learning new things and keeping me humble. There is always something I don’t know, and I’m comfortable with that.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Fashion does not stop just because, at a certain point in the evening, the red carpet gets rolled up. Fresh off of the 2014 Met Gala celebrating the new Charles James: Beyond fashion exhibit at the Anna Wintour Costume Institute, it’s rumored that Harvey Weinstein has struck a deal with the brand, and his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman will be retained as creative consultant.
