Best Dressed at the 2014 MET Gala

The MET Gala took place last night in New York City. This year’s theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

In case you’re not aware, Charles James was a technologically advanced couturier who rose to fame in the 1950s. Originally British, James was known as the architect of fashion; some of his designs were so structured that they could stand on their own. All these attributes led Charles James to become extremely popular to the extent that he was dubbed “America’s first Couturier”.

But enough history for now! Let’s get to the Best Dressed at last night’s gala!

Blake Lively 

She’s backkk! Ever since Blake Lively said “I Do” to Ryan Reynolds, she’s shown a more mature style on the red carpet, wearing understated outfits and covering up her assets. But last night, Blake brought the glamour back to the red carpet and stunned in a sparkly Gucci Première gown. From her soft waves to her jewels, Blake was absolutely flawless!

Gisele Bundchen

No surprise here! Gisele continues her winning streak at the MET for yet another year by wearing a breath taking black gown by Balenciaga. The Brazilian model kept everything else simple and simply accessorized with a pair of Fred Leighton emerald earrings.

Victoria Beckham

Both Mr. and Mrs. Beckham wowed New York City last night! Posh wore a beautiful white column dress from her own Victoria Beckham collection while David matched his wife’s ensemble perfectly in a black and white Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

Naomi Watts

We all know that this Australian beauty can do no wrong on the red carpet! Watts waltzed onto the red carpet in this Givenchy partly sheer stunner. The actress made sure to let the dress make a statement by keeping her accessories and hairstyle fairly simple.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé sure knows how to bring glamour to the MET. Mrs. Carter made a fashion statement in her Givenchy Couture gown that was measured to fit her body perfectly! Queen B accessorized with a matching beaded black head piece and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Reese Witherspoon

With so many pink hued gowns on the red carpet, it was hard to pick a favorite! There’s no denying that Reese Witherspoon looked like a winner in this Stella McCartney fushia gown. It’s also so refreshing to see Reese look this stunning, especially after her train wreck ensemble at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

Kim Kardashian 

Hate her or love her, this must be said: Kim Kardashian looked amazing at last night’s event. The reality star ditched her much loved skin tight- curve hugging- over plunging outfits in favor of this navy Lanvin creation. For once in a really really long time, Kim looks classy and understated! Kim also gets bonus points for changing her strappy sandals at the last minute in favor of these black stunners! Here’s hoping she keeps this up for her wedding, rumored to be taking place next week in Paris.

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the MET Gala

Fashion’s A List came out to celebrate the Met Gala in New York City, with the theme being “Punk: Chaos to Couture”. Let me tell you that there was A LOT of chaos in terms of fashion choices, but for now, let’s just focus on the jaw dropping gowns that made the Best Dressed list!

While Gwen Stefani‘s gown wasn’t as punk as I thought she would want it to be, the rocker was beautiful in a black bow bandeau top and white column skirt custom made by Maison Martin Margiela. Stefani sealed the look with her signature blond locks and red lips!

Gisele always gets it right at the MET, but this time around her choice didn’t quite knock things out of the park. The supermodel still reflected the punk theme in her Anthony Vaccarello black mini with structured details and tons of black diamonds.

 

Giselle

 

Looks like the single life has been treating Katie Holmes well! The actress chose a stunning yet understated Calvin Klein white halter for the MET Gala and accessorized with $2.5 million Lorraine Schwartz earrings!

Jessica Alba is always one to impress at the MET Gala. This year, Alba went for a gun metal Tory Burch gown with fun ab-revealing cutouts. Adding a major punk touch to her look was a spiked Christian Louboutin clutch and spiked earrings!

Hate it or love it, we all know that if there is one person in the world who can pull off a Michael Kors skin tight animal-print gown, it would be Jennifer Lopez! (Same goes for the hairstyle!)

We all know that Rooney Mara loves her Givenchy so who else would she choose to design her gown for the MET Ball? Mara slipped into a white lace Haute Couture gown by the designer with major zipper detailing. She completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels and dark lips.

Leave it to Sara Jessica Parker to go wild for statement accessories! The Sex and the City alum compliments her voluminous Giles Deacon gown with a more than fabulous headpiece by Philip Treacy, that even Kate Middleton would be envy!

 

SJP

 

If anyone can pull off a dress-pant combo look it would be Jessica Biel; Mrs. Justin Timberlake chose a Giambattista Valli macramé and tulle gown with matching pants. She accessorized with patent leather pumps, Fred Leighton jewels and a nose ring!

She may be walking away from Victoria’s Secret, but Miranda Kerr can still find plenty of creative ways to show off her fit body. For the MET gala, Kerr wore a Michael Kors black halter gown with a coordinated bandeau bra. Adding major glamour to her look were the hundreds of carats of diamonds courtesy of Cartier!

It’s refreshing to see Blake Lively learn that you don’t have to show a lot of skin to get attention on the red carpet. The former Gossip Girl star wore a stunning strapless creation by Gucci Premiere (she is the face of the brand) that had a full feather organza skirt and embellishment around the waist area. Dangling Lorraine Schartz earrings added major glam to her look!
