It has been one year since I did my first red carpet review, which started with the superbowl of all red carpet fashion events – the Met Gala. Every year, celebrities gather to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and this year, no one was left disappointed. High fashion was sported, amazing styles were showcased and I was in awe of all the metallic fabric. Why so much metallic? Well, the theme of course, which was technology.
So let’s get to the review, shall we? I picked ten of my favourite looks from the red carpet this year that I am going to detail here and tell you why I love them!
Even with the baby bump, Blake Lively is looking gorgeous in her blush pink gown by Burberry. She swept us all away with the maroon accents and the gorgeous bloom patterns on the skirt and peaking above the bust line. I am a huge Blake fan and so I couldn’t be more of a fan of this Met Gala look.
Elegance is one of the words I would use to describe Jessica Chastain in this jaw-dropping dress. Although she didn’t really follow the theme of the night, she still stole the red carpet with this beautiful and classic gown by Prada. Whenever black lace is paired with a cool tone like blue, you have to be careful to not look too harsh, but this was done very tastefully and the subtle jewelry won her some points as well!
I am really loving this modern look that Emma Watson sported down the red carpet on Monday night. This two toned black and white dress by Calvin Klein is perfect for Emma’s figure and I think the off the shoulder detail is my favourite part. It’s sexy and elegant at the same time!
I’ve heard a lot of opinions on Kendall Jenner’s dress. Some think it looks like a bathing suit cover up, others absolutely are swooning over it. I have to say, I think she is killing it with this red carpet look by Versace. It is simple, beautiful and adds that modern touch that everyone is into right now. We would expect nothing less from Kenny herself.
It seems as if Demi Lovato is getting totally overlooked in the reviews I have read, which is why I am definitely going to highlight her look here. Although it is very bright and metallic…I think this dress by Moschino was showstopping. It stuck with the theme, it is extremely flattering and completely show stopping in a classic cut way! I think Demi deserves a gold star for this red carpet look…I am a total fan!
I am all about the white gowns this year and Gugu Mbatha-Raw look gorgeous head to toe dressed in white by Gabriela Hearst. Embracing the technology theme with her metallic stripe down the side of her arm, the subtly is elegant and graceful and I am loving the entire ensemble.
Stealing the focus from her sister, Gigi, Bella Hadid totally had the carpet’s attention with this gorgeous and slinky black gown by Givenchy. Bella looks sophisticated and chic in this Met Gala look and I have to say, I am loving the thigh high stockings to go along with it – uber trendy!
Kate Hudson has always been one of my fave celebrities – especially on the red carpet. I love the angular cuts in this Atelier Versace gown. It really accentuates her figure and the angles used throughout the dress is completely within the technology theme.
Never disappointing, Kate Upton looks super cute in this shimmering gown by Topshop. Off the shoulder, one shoulder, bare shoulders is super in trend right now, and Kate is not shying away from a bare left shoulder. I couldn’t be happier with this shiny and dazzling ensemble. I also have to give a shout out to her glam squad because her hair and make up are completely on point.
Okay, being a huge fan of Cinderella…there was no question that Claire Danes’ look is the winner of the night. It’s elegant in the day and a party at night. Literally, lighting up the entire night with this gown by Zac Posen. You can’t really get closer to Cinderella than this and I am a huge fan.
I like to detail the best dressed and the worst dressed of the red carpets I review…but honestly, when it comes to the Met Gala, worst is unique and best is creative…they are all kind of in the same pot! Besides, I don’t like to be mean…so there you have it!
