The red carpet at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art flooded with elites of the fashion, arts and entertainment world Monday night for one of the most sought-out social events of the year – the Met Gala. This year’s theme: to honor the works of Charles James, “America’s First Couturier”, for his lavishly heavy gowns and highly structured aesthetic.
Each year I tune in to see which dress I may be able to replicate and each year I fail, epic-ly, since at the moment, I do not have a ton of gold sitting around in my house. However this year, I almost fell off my chair and let out a scream at the look which I’m going to save it for last…because it is REALLY that best!
But…in the meantime, let’s enjoy some met-gala-eye-candy…
Why does Hocus Pocus come to mind…??!!!
Charlize Theron in Dior
This woman can wear a trash bag and still look HOT!
Taylor Swift in Oscar de la Renta
Ok, she redeemed herself, I give her that much!
Emma Rossum in Carolina Herrera
Emmy always puts on eye-catching prints!
Zoe Saldana in Michael Kors
Something strangely aquatic about this outfit…
Rihanna in Stella McCartney
I dig the crop top look but then Rihanna never fails to amuse me
Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney
Always plays it safe, hardly ever wows me, but love the color
The Olsen’s can definitely do eccentric…and the eccentric I can see myself wearing. Overall love their sense of odd-fashion!
Maggie Gyllenhaal in Valentino
I actually love the print. May come across as an 80s board game cover but it’s quite catchy!
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton
I don’t care much for Michelle W’s style but it suits her and she pulls it off so…
Kristen Stewart in Chanel
…and here’s how the Dodo Bird went extinct…
Rachel McAdams in Ralph Lauren
Always keeping it simple and elegant!
Nicole Richie in Donna Karan
Nicole is one of the few whose boho style I thoroughly admire. She’s always been a pioneer on the red carpet keeping true to her own style hardly ever giving the audience a dull moment
Lupita Nyong’o in Prada
Borrowed from the Carnaval in Rio De Janeiro
Katie Holmes in Marchesa
Beyonce in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown
Bey is just gorgeous…and she’s from H-Town!
Emma Stone in Thakoon
I love the color combo
Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa
Eye-gouging bodice, Harry Winston diamonds…Winner!
Blake Lively in Gucci
Nothing too spectacular but I can admire the simplicity & elegance combined with one of my favorite hair-do’s
Naomi Watts in Givenchy
Rita Ora in Donna Karan
Sacrificing her blood circulation in the name of style – pretty cool!
Anne Hathaway in Calvin Klein
Anne needs to loosen up a little. I see potential but unwillingness to take risks!
Dita Von Teese in Zac Posen
Dita Von Teese can wear a towel and I will not stop admiring her!
Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford
Brad supposedly gained 40 lbs for his upcoming role…and it shows…
David Beckham in Ralph Lauren with his robot by his side
SJP in Oscar de la Renta
…and let’s end the night with the Last one but certainly not the Least
SJP, the woman who rocks the red carpet and the fashion scene, did not fail to do so again tonight. This is a DIME! I can’t stop droooooling over SJP! She just KILLS it!!!
