The MET Gala red carpet is probably one of the most watched after the Oscars. It’s such a high profile event that designers themselves really outdo themselves. This year the theme was White-tie and Celebrations, and before you scratch your head and wonder, let me explain to you what it is – it’s a notch higher than black-tie. Enter coat tails and voluminous ball gowns – very Gone With the Wind-esque. The Gala also paid tribute to America’s original couturier Charles James.
Blake Lively wore a Gucci Première blush hued gown making her look ethereal. However, her accessory to covet was the positively yummy Ryan Reynolds also dressed in Gucci.
Rihanna gave her own spin to a gown by opting a crop-top gown by Stella McCartney.
Another crop-top esque gown that was spotted on the MET gala was Anne Hathaway’s Calvin Klein gown. Love the sleek look!
Now this is Old World glamour. I love this pastel pink Oscar de la Renta gown on Taylor Swift.
This embellished Pucci gown is perfect on Leighton Meester. The beachy waves add a nice bohemian vibe.
I’m not completely sold on this look but there’s no denying Lupita Nyong’o‘s Prada frock is whimsical and playful and had heads turning.
Co-chair of the ball Sarah Jessica Parker decided to go big – her humongous Oscar de la Renta gown with a black and white grid pattern down the back was certainly tricky to wear, but she pulled it off with elan.
Remember last year’s head-to-toe fugly Givenchy look? This time around, Kim Kardashian chose a prussian blue Lanvin gown.
