The Met Gala brought out all the high fashion stops this year and the celebrities were wearing their gowns in full artistic expression. So what is the Met Gala you asked? Well good question! I always knew it existed as a red carpet event but wasn't quite sure what it was all about. Was it an award show? What was it? Well after simple research, (aka Wikipedia) I found that:
The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of theMetropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. It also serves as an opening celebration for the institute's annual fashion exhibit. It is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the biggest fundraising nights of the city with a reported nine million dollars raised in 2013. Hence all the high fash-un, most of which I don't understand but fully appreciate. So anyway, I wanted to share some of my hits and misses. Again, most of these gowns are intentially over the top and outlandish and I tend to like more classic pieces….so keep that in mind! I think I have more misses than hits here.
Hands down my FAVORITE dress of the night. Blake Lively is stunning and oh so retro glam here.
This is how you do it ladies!
Jessica Alba came in at a strong second favorite for me.
Again with the old hollywood glam look. Timeless in my opinion.
Reese will pretty much always be on my best dressed list. ALWAYS.
She just knows how to dress her figure and looks effortlessly put together.
Selena is looking so grown up and beautiful. This dress fits her perfectly and I'm loving the deep burgundy color of the dress and lips. Total win!
Emma Stone is just adorable. Not super crazy about this two piece, but somehow she manages to pull it off.
This might be the only time I ever say this but…..Lupita is on the worst dressed list! Girl, you missed the mark here! This looks like a fishing net with seaweed stuck in it. Terrible. This is your one and only pass and I'm hoping the next time I see you, you are back to being fabulously stylish as usual.
Katie Holmes. Nope. This looks like something Scarlett O'Hara would wear, and I don't mean in a good way. Because let's face it, Scarlett O'Hara was fierce.
Note to self: never ADD extra fabric to your waist to make it look bigger.
Why would anyone so this??
This looks like a cheesy comforter in a motel. Like the kind you pull off and immediately throw on the floor because you know it's cleanliness is questionable.
Sorry, just don't like it.
Nope. Terribly unflattering and the fabric looks heavy.
Is this a space scene? Wait, is that the Death Star from Star Wars??
I feel like little miss Hayden has continually ended up on my worst dressed list this past year.
Girl, get yourself a new stylist!!
This is Kate Upton? The same Kate Upton considered one of the sexiest women alive by Sports Illustrated?? Momma, you got some beautiful curves -- flaunt them. This looks like a hot mess.
I must state for the record that I typically never like anything she wears.
Or her RBF (Resting Bitch Face). Find out more about this terrible affliction here.
I have to admit, I typically like a lot of things Kim Kardashian wears (don't hate me!) This is not one of them. This dress is a little too 80's prom/bridesmaid to me for some reason. Also the thigh high slit is so Angelina last year. Over it.
And this monstrosity is just flat out ugly in my opinion.
So there you have it - my hits and misses from the Met Gala!
What were your personal loves & love to hate gowns?
