Adam’s tux also had the symbol for the N train prominently displayed in what was reference to last month’s mass shooting on a crowded subway train in Brooklyn in which 23 people were hurt.

The former First Lady and Secretary of State is said to have drawn inspiration for her dress from the women of America’s past whom she admires.

‘I knew that I wanted the dress to have a personal component for her,’ Altuzarra told Vogue. 

‘When someone like Hillary goes to the Met, it’s not just like, ‘there’s Hillary at the Met and she’s wearing a dress.’ It has a lot of significance. I felt like I had to be very thoughtful about what the dress would mean to the theme and to the occasion.’
