The Red Carpet Report: Met Gala 2015

Films have the Oscars; music have the Grammys; and fashion has the Met Gala — otherwise known as the biggest/stylish night in fashion. Last night the red carpet was bursting at the seams with looks that were daring, elagant, original or over-the-top!  This year’s theme you ask…”China: Through the Looking Glass“.

Here are a few trends that emerged from this most glamorous night

Met Gala 2015: the Naked Dress

Shock and awe seemed to be the motivation behind the looks of Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Joan Smalls and Jennifer Lopez. A tactic which was perfectly executed as they stole the show with their near-naked ensembles.

All that glitters (in this case) IS gold! These gilded beauties; Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Chastain, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway were glittering spectacles last night on the red carpet.

Met Gala 2015: Red Alert

Talk about scarlet fever! A bevy of radiant women donned what easily was the color of the evening — Red! It seems Hannah Davis, Helen Mirren, Karolina Kurkova and Gigi Hadid got the memo, as they were all vibrant and beautiful in this bold color.

Red Carpet Report: Met Gala 2014

The Met Ball, arguably the most exclusive, glamorous and most extravagant date in the world of fashion took place last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

I seriously can’t believe we’re here already, it seems like I was only just pouring over the images from last year’s Gala. As you may (or may not) remember last year’s theme was “Punk: Chaos to Couture” which resulted in a slew of looks that won’t soon be forgotten!

This year’s theme however, was for more subdued, honoring the great American Couturier Charles James. The theme is stated as being “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” and as I understand it, the dress code for last night’s event was “white tie and decorations”.

There were so many great looks which I narrowed down to a few of my personal favorites.

Trend: Monochromatic

Rihanna

Anna Kendrick
