So earlier this week was The Met Gala… which celebrated the opening of this year’s fashion exhibit ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ (which I’ll be visiting on my upcoming trip to New York!). It’s regarded as the social event of the year in New York City, and celebrities are used as models to showcase designer pieces. With an array of dresses to choose from, here are the standout dresses of the night:
Nude dresses were certainly working on the red carpet at the Met Gala. Ashley Greene was quite easily the best dressed of the evening in this classic beaded gown custom made by Donna Karen. Diane Kruger came a close second in this unusal Jason Wu dress and Sarah Jessica Parker looked fab in an embellished McQueen dress from the Autumn collection.
The bad was oh so bad! Naomi Campbell wore a very weird McQueen dress… whilst Iman went for an all over gold look (hair, skin, outfit!) in a metallic Stella McCartney jumpsuit. Mary-Kate Olsen wore a Red Givenchy maxi which was terribly unflattering, and even the gorgeous green jewels couldn’t save it!!
And the Bridal
With the Royal Wedding just a few days before, it would appear that there were a few celebs who wanted to get on the bridal bandwagon. Miranda Kerr and Fergie both wore Marchesa whilst Serena Williams wore Oscar De La Renta. Ladies… the only time you can get away with ivory/white along with tulle/lace/feathers is at your wedding… so please don’t wear it on the red carpet!
