I had a bit of a long lie this morning after staying up till the early hours to see all the Met Gala 2015 dresses. When I eventually got up I decided not to write a blog post about my favourites this year however after looking through all the photos again I decided I needed to save all my favourites and if I was saving them anyway I might as well share them with you too!
Although there is always a theme to the Met Gala’s (my favourite was 2013 Punk: Chaos to Couture!) I always find that some celebrities take the theme much more serious that others and some just ignore it all together which I am sure does not impress Anna Wintour. This year’s theme was China: Through the Looking Glass, which some, such as Sarah Jessica Parker took to extremes and other approached it in a more subtle manner.
Anyway, I scrolled through the hundreds of photos on the Vogue website, admiring the beautiful and gasping at the horrific. By the end, I had 10 clear favourites so here we go…..
Rose Byrne – Calvin Klein Collection. I love this, the colour, the detail and the fit. Accessories have been matched perfectly to bring out the different coloured spots on the dress. You’ll soon see that a lot of my favourite dresses are Calvin Klein! They did amazing this year!
Emily Ratajkowski – Topshop. It wouldn’t be a proper blog post without a bit of Topshop! This Topshop dress subtlely highlights the China theme without being too over the top. The colours are great and I love the blue that make the dress stand out a little more.
Kate Hudson – Michael Kors. This dress is beautiful and her makeup and hair looks great with it. The sequins being slightly spaced out makes the dress more elegant in my opinion as the small gaps allow her skin tone to break up the gold.
Lily Aldridge – Carolina Herrera. I questioned this one a bit but I just couldn’t get over the beautiful colour and the small buttons trailing down the back of the dress. The detail at the bottom gives what would be a plain dress, a wow factor. Her choice of dark lipstick gives an amazing contrast.
Reese Witherspoon – Jason Wu. It may be simple and some might see it as a bit of a safe bet but I think Reese Witherspoon looks amazing in this dress. The fit is amazing and the slit up the front paired with the necklace and those killer shoes gives the look that little bit extra.
Kendall Jenner – Calvin Klein Collection. Yes, another Calvin Klein number but, to be honest, all the celebrities dressed in Calvin Klein this year looked amazing. Kendall Jenner looks unbelievable in this dress. I love the colour and yes it is a little bit revealing but to be honest if I had Kendall Jenner’s figure I would want to show it off.
Kate Beckinsale – Diane Von Furstenberg. Sparkly dresses were massive at this years Met Gala and Kate Beckinsale went all out with this gold dress. This one grabbed my attention because of the style. I love the high neck and loose top half followed by a figure hugging bottom half, it’s just a bit different from the rest and it is definitely a style I would choose for myself.
Sienna Miller – Thakoon. This is a little different but I love it. I am a massive fan of suits and this just takes that to a whole new level. The sequins and beads creating an all over fringed effect with a tuxedo style, it’s just unbelievable.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – Versace. I already tweeted about this early this morning as I couldn’t get over how amazing she looks in this Versace piece. I mean the colour would completely wash out anyone with pale skin but I do love it. The fit and intricate cut makes it’s so unique and unusual looking that it just stands out.
Rita Ora – Tom Ford. Finally Rita Ora. I spend most days lusting over Rita Ora’s wardrobe and this piece is no different. I absolutely adore the collar and the cap sleeves. The detail all over is just beautiful and for Tom Ford to then finish it off with a fur trim is just incredible!
So there you have it, my 10 favourite looks from last night’s Met Gala, a lot of red, loads of sparkle, a bit of fur, some amazing accessories and an awful lot of jealousy!
Let me know what you think of my favourites and I’d love to know who your favourite was and who you thought made the wrong choices!!
