The Boldest Looks From The MET Gala 2016

The first Monday of May in New York is quite the big deal; A-list celebrities flock to the MET museum on 5th avenue and walk the annual MET gala red carpet in custom-made creations by the world’s most coveted designers. 2016’s gala was no different than others; on the contrary, with a theme entitled ““Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”, we witnessed a sea of mirrored gowns that surely transported us to the future. Here’s a closer look at last night’s boldest looks:

Emma Stone debuted her darker locks in a striking white Prada gown with a gunmetal harness. The actress completed her look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Smokey eyes.

Kendall Jenner was her usual stunning supermodel self in a custom multi-colored Atelier Versace dress. Jenner accentuated her look with white heels and a high ponytail.

Kendall’s bestie- Gigi Hadid- also wowed in a gunmetal chiffon custom-made Tommy Hilfiger gown with an attached halter neckline. The model brought her best accessory, boyfriend Zayn Malik who turned heads in his metal armed custom Versace suit.

Blake Lively usually knocks it out of the park with her MET gala ensembles, however, last night was a different story. The pregnant actress does not impress in her pink Burberry dress with red flower embellishments; from her hair to her over-the-top Lorraine Schwartz danglers, here’s hoping that Blake’s fashion choices evolve as her second pregnancy unfolds.

Taylor Swift can’t seem to get enough of her new look; the singer sticks to her beach hair and wine lips for the MET’s red carpet event and dons a reptile print Louis Vuitton side cut-out halter dress. It’s safe to say that T.Swift can do so much better than this.

In possibly one of the worst looks of the night, Madonna chooses to cover her nipples in black tape and show us her butt in a sheer black ensemble and over 400 carats of Neil Lane jewels. It’s time to act your age Madge.

Naomi Watts knows how good she looks in metallics: the Aussie actress stuns in a strapless mirrored Burberry dress with embellished flowers and Fred Leighton jewels.

Another red carpet, another shapeless matching getup for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

I’m usually not a fan of Kristen Stewart, but the actress surely impressed at this year’s MET gala. For her walk down the carpet, Stewart chose a laced silk Chanel dress with equally stunning sparkly boots. The actress ups her game with striking silver shadow and a blonde updo.

A usual MET gala favorite, Sarah Jessica Parker fails in this custom Monse ensemble and mis-matched heels from her own line, SJP.

Lady Gaga goes back to her early red carpet days in a flawlessly structured Atelier Versace onesie and matching metallic bolero with sublime detailing. Her lace-up platform boots should have stayed at home though.

Emma Watson pushes her style in a pant/skirt combo by Calvin Klein Collection. The British actress completes her outfit with a simple black and white bustier and old glamorous waves.

Karolina Kurkova stuns in her gray Marchesa dress that comes loaded with flower appliques and get this, the gown is embedded with IBM Watson technology (LED lights) that reacts to social media in real-time!

Kim Kardashian said that she felt like a “robot” in her metallic mirrored Balmain gown, but I doubt that a even a robot would want to wear this skin-tight over the top look.

Rachel McAdams is simply lovely in her Valentino dress which featured heavy gold details and script embroidery all over the skirt. The actress completed her look with dark lips and a pair of Jimmy Choos.

Too much dress and way too many feathers; Rita Ora fails to inspire us with her custom Vera Wang gown.

What could be better than Kate Bosworth’s sublime Dolce and Gabbana armored bodice dress? Her matching crown, that’s what.

Katy Perry takes costume galas very seriously it seems. The singer goes all out with an elaborate (that word could be an understatement) Prada gown accentuated with a Tamagotchi (boyfriend Orlando Bloom also wore one) toy and a fierce updo.

Cindy Crawford’s still got it! The ageless models sizzles in a liquid silver Balmain dress with structured sheer panels.

Nicki Minaj looks like she’s packed, taped, and ready to be shipped out in this custom Moschino halter dress, complete with buckle details and sheer gloves and skirt. #fail.

I’m having a schizophrenic reaction to Miranda Kerr’s Louis Vuitton two piece outfit. On the one hand, it’s way too colorful and the mismatched ruffle is just tacky, but on the other hand, if anyone can get away with wearing this look,  it would be this Aussie model.

Note to Brie Larson: this is what you wear to a high profile red carpet event from now on. The Oscar winner makes up for her Academy Awards look by slipping into a breath-taking cut-out Proenza Schouler mirrored halter dress. Simply stunning!

Kate Hudson disappoints in this super busy Atelier Versace white gown with a tiered and sculpted bodice and long train. The actress redeems herself (kind-of) thanks to her 8 million dollar Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Solange Knowles is playful in this #Lemonade pleated dress with an inverted neckline and thigh-high matching boots. Classic Solange and on point with the color to support big sis Beyoncé.

Alicia Vikander has too much going on thanks to her Louis Vuitton dress. The design house’s latest muse groups patent, sequins, and patchwork all in one LV mini and yet, the disaster seems to come in the form of Vikander’s unfortunate red hiking boots.

Dolce and Gabbana’s #ItaliaIsLove can easily be changed to #ZoeIsLove, for Saldana is the epitome of glitz and glamour in a flawless Dolce and Gabbana multi-colored feather trained extravagant gown.

As if Beyoncé needed more press this week! Queen B was the talk of the MET thanks to her latex or Slaytex- as many called it- gown by Givenchy. The puff sleeve nude beaded gown sent the BeyHive (and the Twitterverse) into a frenzy and expressed a lack of care that Jay Z couldn’t make it. This was Beyoncé in all her glory and she emerged a winner, as usual.

Best & Worst Dressed At The 2016 Oscars

For film’s biggest night, Hollywood’s brightest and boldest actresses brought out their best designer duds for a walk on the red carpet. Here are the best and worst looks from Oscar Sunday.

Naomi Watts is stunning in this Armani Privé blue and purple scale patterned strapless dress. The Aussie actress ups her game in a drop-dead gorgeous Bulgari diamond necklace and matching clutch.

Saoirse Ronan may not have won the Oscar, but she sure was a winner on the red carpet. The Brooklyn actress wows in a custom-made Calvin Klein emerald sequin dress and matching Chopard emeralds and diamonds.

Lady Gaga impresses as only SHE can! The singer sticks to her unique roots in this Brandon Maxwell white jumpsuit complete with a sweetheart neckline and full train. Gaga adds over 8 million dollars of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds to complete her flawless look!

Olivia Wilde is another stunner in white; the actress takes the plunge in this plunging Valentino Haute Couture number. Wilde kept her makeup and hair simple and accessorized her look with a statement necklace.

Julianne Moore ditched her go-to Givenchy for this custom Chanel Haute Couture black dress with embroidered straps. Last year’s Oscar winner was mesmerizing thanks to an addition of Chopard diamond earrings and cuff.

It’s so good to see Tina Fey finally end up on a best dressed list! The funny actress stuns in a royal purple Atelier Versace strapless gown and matching statement Bulgari diamonds.

Another red carpet, another sizzling appearance by the one and only Margot Robbie. The beautiful actress is reminiscent of an Oscar statue in her snake skin gold Tom Ford gown with plunging neckline and matching Forever Mark diamonds.

Rachel McAdams hits the mark in her impeccable August Getty Atelier gown! From the train to the open back, and not forgetting her flawless Piaget drop earrings, the Canadian beauty was surely one of the night’s best dressed stars.

Olivia Munn is classy and elegant in her tangerine one-shoulder Stella McCartney gown. She accentuates her look with a matching lip and Forever Mark jewels.

Jennifer Lawrence decided to take a walk on the wild side and step out of her comfort zone in this nude and black lace Dior gown. The actress completed her look with a fresh face and a blunt straight bob.

JLaw

 

I’m undecided about Cate Blanchett‘s gown choice for last night’s awards. The actress’ seafoam green Armani Privé gown has too much going on thanks to the multidimensional appliques all over. At least her breath-taking Tiffany & Co. diamonds saved her!

cate-blanchett

Kate Winslet looks like she went for a dip in the ocean right before the Oscars and then put on the first gown she saw hanging in her closet. Everything about this look is a disaster; from the careless hairdo to the liquid silk lamé custom Ralph Lauren gown, Britain’s English rose could have done so much better than this!

kate-winslet

 

Another red carpet, another disaster for Heidi Klum. The supermodel fails to impress in this over-the-top cleavage baring one shoulder lilac Marchesa number with one too many floral embellishments.

She may have taken home the Oscar for best actress, but even that can’t save Brie Larson from this Gucci disaster. The actress is a mess in this custom-made royal blue spaghetti strap gown which featured too many out of place skirt details and an oversized silver belt.

Fashion Fails | Worst Dressed at the MET Gala

We’ve seen the good, and now it’s time to unveil the ugly! While some celebrities nailed the punk theme, others just took it a little too far! Here they are:

Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino: We know you’re trying to show off your new platinum do’ Anne, but it’s so hard to concentrate on your hair because all we can see are those distracting sheer panels and furry cuffs from your dress!

 

Anne H

 

Elizabeth Banks in Atelier Versace and custom “Elizabeth” by Brian Atwood sandals: While this look could have worked for her role as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games”, the shinny gold tux proved to be too much for the MET red carpet!

 

Elizabeth Banks

 

Kristin Stewart in Stella McCartney: There are so many things wrong with this jumpsuit; from the maroon color to the volumes, KStew looks lost somewhere in this outfit. Also not helping her look was her choice of eyeshadow!

 

KStew

 

Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton: Maybe the Victoria’s Secret angel should have went for a punk inspired bikini instead of this awful and unflattering Louis Vuitton dress!

 

Karlie Kloss

 

Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabanna: While Katy Perry’s outfit choices are usually interesting, this was just too much. From the jewel encrusted dress to the crown (yes crown!), Perry should have known that if the characters on “Game of Thrones” wouldn’t wear this, then neither should she!

 

Katy Perry

 

Ashley Olsen: While it remains unclear who designed Ashley’s dress, what’s for sure is that she looked like the little angel statue my family uses for the manger at Christmas time!

 

Ahley Olsen

 

Madonna in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Seriously Madonna! You’re 54! If you’re not going to start putting pants on now, when will you?!

 

Madonna

 

Beyoncé in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Looking like she was doing a dress rehearsal for her music video for “Bow Down B*****s” (especially in the shoe department), Beyoncé was a walking disaster in this matchy-matchy outfit- a far cry from her winning look at last year’s MET Gala.

 

Beyonce

 

Kelly Osbourne in Marc Jacobs: I don’t have the words to describe this look, but I will say that while I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs, this dress just did not work!

 

Kelly Osbourne

 

Kim Kardashian in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Having been publicly banned from the MET Gala over the years by Anna Wintour , Kim reportedly only received an invite for being Kanye West’s gf. I was actually looking forward to seeing what she would wear following so many fashion faux pas throughout her pregnancy. Instead, she looked like a big pile of flowers that needed to be watered. (gloves included!) Let’s hope Kimye stay together until next year so she can try to redeem herself!
