Ah yes, the weekend before the Met gala. It’s always a good one, when all these girls who have been starving themselves for weeks to fit into their ball gowns try their best to behave when everyone descends upon New York and tries to be good, even they though they ultimately fail. Mulberry did a dinner on Friday night where Llana del Rey performed (see Alexa Chung’s fan freak out photo below), and then in an interesting twist of fate Saturday was Cinco de Mayo. The weekend was capped off on Sunday night with Burberry’s W magazine dinner, which turned out to be an intimate, sedate affair since, well, these girls would be climbing the Met stairs for what is considered the East Coast Oscars in a matter of hours.
