While we rested our tired heads here in England, the worlds biggest stars, from designers, and models to actors and socialites, gathered in New York, all dressed up for the years most important event.
The Met Gala is hosted every year as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and is also a celebration of their annual fashion exhibition, which usually determines the dress code for The Ball. These events are historically all about the women showing off beautiful creations, while the men take the back seat, and act more like silent backdrops, careful not to grab the attention from their
better other halves. This year however, as a nod to the fashion exhibition “Charles James: Beyond Fashion”, the mens dress code was strictly full evening dress and decorations.
For those of you who don’t go to balls on a regular basis (Peasants!) that means white tie. And for those of you who don’t know what white tie means (Seriously what do you do with your time?), it’s basically white waistcoat and bow tie under one of those penguin coats. You’re welcome.
Ok, I digress, my point being, we saw some pretty good lookin’ men on the red carpet, and not to mention some seriously hot couples! So without further yakking, I’ve picked a few ladies who, in my opinion deserved all the attention they stole from the men. I’ve also picked a few couples because god dammit they’re so good looking it’s just not fair!
Nicole Richie in this silver Donna Karan Atelier creation, with the purple do, the simple silver jewellery and grey nails. I’m just so jealous, I could cry. It’s perfect.
Dree Hemmingway looks absolutely stunning, and timeless, in this sunshine yellow number. A classic!
Ok, so I’m not a big fan of reality stars, but this Topshop (what!?) dress on Kendall Jenner just looks really good. I wish it wasn’t true, but hey, the proof is right there. As a small comfort, her hair is terrible.
Solange looks like a modern day flapper right here. The hair, the dress, The Look! Sexy yet careless.
I’m sure a lot of people will disagree with me but Leighton Meester looks dead sexy in this lose fitted dress. The slouchy fit, deep v-neck and high split are perfectly balanced, and topped off beautifully with her casual curls.
My personal favourite, who also happen to be my current obsession/girl crush, Emma Stone in Thakoon. The look is perfectly summery yet elegant, and the metallic accessories and make-up gives it a sexier edge. The summer vibe is completed by the beautiful lose side braid.
I’m not sure if these ladies go as a couple or not, but can we please just appreciate for a moment how really freaking classy they are? Honestly, how many people can pull off dresses like that without looking like their positively ancient? I think probably two. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are truly becoming legendary for their impeccable style and I’m sure it will be spoken of many years after they’re gone. Excuse me while I get the tissues, I got something in my eye.
Ok, so Johnny Depp and Amber Heard being together still makes me feel a little uncomfortable (I’m sorry, I just don’t understand. I need closure!) but they dress seriously well. Amber in her dusty gold gown, make-up in muted colours, and slightly messy hair, and Depp with his pocket chain and cane. They look like they’ve stepped out of a different time all together, and they look, just, perfect. I can’t put it into words.
ASAP Rocky and Chanel Iman, possibly the hottest couple alive right now, and (dare I say?) who I predict will take the throne after Beyonce and Jay Z have finished their reign. In risk of being slaughtered, I actually prefer them. There, I said it! P.S. this stunning dress is also Topshop. What is going on?
I think Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds look super great, they’re classic Hollywood Royalty, except for one tiny little thing, that I try to look away from, but it just keeps. pulling me. back. in. That thing on Blake’s head. That hair roll. What. the. Make it stop.
I can’t. It’s just too much lovely in one picture. Neil Patrick Harris is the ultimate babe.
No comment, they rule the world.
