The Met Gala
It's the social event of every year for the high end fashionistas and major celebrities and last night was no different! With a theme that I think got many confused;
Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology it was definitely a night in fashion we wont forget in hurry. Amongst the silver (and there was lots of silver) we did still get some fabulous looks from some of our favourite stars.
With the theme getting lost in translation I'm torn whether to do the best dressed based on theme or just on who brought their A game! So here is both!
Best Dress: Fashion in an Age of Technology
Yes I know its silver but lets face it Kim Kardashian West definitely rocks it the best and no one not even Angelina can do that thigh split better than Kim K! This Balmain dress didn't just tease with the mirrored effect it went full throttle and didn't hold back. Although I do think she should have been stricter on letting Kanye wear jeans! Would it have killed him to pop on some trousers?
Next up we have Amber Valetta wearing H&M (custom I know but still!). A great fitting dress that has steered clear of the fishtail bum hugging traditions worn by so many now and still with that chic hint of the theme.
Alexa Chung is a girl after my own heart. I'm all about comfort and reckon she had on the comfiest outfit of the evening and still looked uber glamorous. All the dazzle and shine took this basic jumpsuit to a different level and the simplicity of the hair, make up and strappy heel just finish off a beautiful look!
Once again I do think this was a difficult theme and as with every year you either throw yourselves in fully (Saraj Jessica Parker 2015 springs to mind) or you just stick to the basics and show up looking amazing. It's that scary feeling of going to a fancy dress party and not knowing who else is dressing up or what they are wearing; only you have the worlds press looking at you and no group of girlfriends to walk in with and co-ordinate looks with as everyone is so secretative about what they are wearing!
So with this in mind I have picked my best dressed just based on glamour!
First up we have Lena Dunham. Alongside some of her co-stars Lena ditched the dress and showed not only the women how to do it but the men too! The outfit was meticulous in all the right areas from the hair to the heel!
Kirsten Stewart mixed glamour with raw edge in her red carpet look for the Met Gala. The bleached hair and shoe boot made this versatile dress the ultimate rock chick dream.
Finally with no black or silver in sight we have Jennifer Hudson also showing of her style savvy with H&M. This gown and train wouldn't look out of place at a wedding and certainly didn't look out of place at last nights event. Teamed with the ultimate in diamond earrings and with hair up so we didn't lose sight of the top of the dress Jennifer definitely made her presence known on the red carpet! This has Pinterest bridal inspiration written all over it.
