Linda Fargo wears a custom Baroness latex gown to the Met Gala 2013
The Baroness’s custom punk-inspired latex dress made a stunning entrance as it appeared on the red carpet of the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Artj on May 6. Linda Fargo, Senior Vice President of the fashion office and store presentation at Bergdorf Goodman, wore this daring latex design to honor this year’s exhibition, “PUNK: Chaos to Couture.” Hosted by Vogue and attended by A-list celebrities and designers, this red carpet was where the best of the best in the industry were seen and worn.
This is truly the event that lives up to my motto “Any Occasion to Dress is an Occasion to Overdress” and it was a delight to work with Linda, who really embraced the theme and “nailed it” as one of the many blogs about the event said. Surprisingly she was one of the few who took inspiration the rest settled for “nice” designer frocks.
DFR: The Daily Report’s Lieba Nesis: “Linda Fargo, Senior Vice President at Bergdorf’s, nailed the evening’s punk S&M look in a black Baroness dress with silver buckles, leather gloves and a wild hairdo- she always looks simultaneously young and age appropriate- a near impossible feat to achieve.”
Elva I Ramirez: “Most *amazing* (and truly punk) #metgala dress came unexpectedly from @Bergdorfs Linda Fargo.”
