If you are into fashion, the Met Gala is THE event of the season. The one night of the year where celebrities from all arenas team up with the fashion industry’s best for a night of pure red carpet drama. There is couture abound as designers come up with avant-garde creations for this annual themed-event. It’s great to see who executes the theme well and scratch your head at those who miss the mark. This year’s theme is China: Through the Looking Glass – celebrating how the East meets West in the world of fashion.
Sarah Jessica Parker is the queen of the Met Gala. She always shows up giving 100% in the year’s theme. Whether you love or hate her looks, you cannot deny that she is the standard for executing the theme. The Philip Treacy headpiece is definitely a showstopper. I give her props for rocking it, when else would you be able to wear a work of art like that? (Side note: SJP always has the best date. Alexander McQueen, Andy Cohen…enough said.)
Do we know who Allison Williams’ red carpet stylist is? Major props are due for having this ‘Girls’ star in stunning looks every time she steps out. This Haute Couture Giambattista Valli gown is a dream.
H&M collaborated with another star for tonight’s event. The result is a perfectly on trend and on theme fit that stays true to Janelle Monae’s brand as well. A crop top and a cape?! Yes. Plus an updo with a dramatic braid? Yes and yes.
Anne Hathaway knows how to turn heads on the red carpet. You never quite know the direction she’s going to go but I like this choice tonight. The Ralph Lauren liquid gold column dress with a hood is a bold, yet beautiful choice.
Joan Smalls is my model muse. She’s wearing purple like no one has ever worn purple (except her…here). This Roberto Cavalli gown is everything and then some. The lace detail perfectly contrasts to the tough belt and the black choker is the best accessory. Joan represents Estee Lauder well tonight as one of the faces of the iconic beauty brand.
As Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s daughter, I would imagine that Bee Shaffer has connections to the most beautiful gowns in the world. I really love her choice tonight. I am partial to anything involving cherry blossoms as they bring back fond memories of my early years spent living in Japan. This gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress with a cherry blossom motif is perfect for the evening’s festivities.
