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.
Rihanna bared her toned midriff and strutted with structured shoulders in white Stella McCartney.
Anna Kendrick the picture of elegance in black & white J. Mendel. (She has never looked better!)
Hailee Steinfeld stunned with athleticism meets couture in this racerback creation by Prabal Gurung.
Trend: Pretty In Pink
Emma Stone in two-toned pink by Thakoon.
Rachel McAdams in a soft flowing pink gown by Ralph Lauren.
Reese Witherspoon highlighted her figure in hot pink Stella McCartney.
