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.

 

"Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

 

 

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.

 

"Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

 

 

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.

 

"Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

 

 

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.

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!)

 

JLo

 

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.

 

Rooney Mara

 

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!

 

Jessica Biel

 

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!

 

Miranda Kerr

 

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!

It wasn’t all perfect at the MET Gala; stay tuned for the worst dressed coming up later!

Favorites | 5 Trends To Spice Up Your Easter Wardrobe!

If you’re anything like me, then you’ve probably spent the Winter season wearing black and grey outfits. But come March, I suddenly felt the need to add some color to spice things up a bit. Suddenly I’m wearing emerald tops, turquoise ballerinas, and doing something I’ve never done- painting my nails orange!

With Spring in full bloom and Easter Sunday merely 2 days away, I though it would be fun to share some trends that can make your wardrobe colorful and fun to welcome the sunny days ahead. Read on to find out more.

Yellow

From painting Easter eggs to welcoming baby chicks into your home this holiday, to me Easter is all about colors. So why not experiment with a bright hue like yellow? Take note from Jennifer Lawrence who flaunts her figure in a mustard peplum number or get comfy in a chunky sweater like Jessica Alba’s and pair it with distressed jeans for a Saturday afternoon in the sun. If you’re heading to a fancy event, go for a bright yellow dress with sequins all over just like Vanessa Hudgens did for her appearance on the Late Show with Dave Letterman.

Stripes

Stripes are a great trend to explore this Spring. Rachel McAdams is the best example of how to master this look as she wears 4 different shades of blue in one dress that are all on trend. Rachel completes her look with two toned pumps and a white trench coat. You can still be fashionable in black, just pick a white and black striped dress and pair it with colorful pumps like Jamie Chung did at a Land Rover event.

 

Stripes

 

 

Florals

I’m not really big on the floral thing, but it’s everywhere these days I might just try it. Take a look at Jenna Dewan Tatum who is casual chic in a floral maxi number; the mummy to be’s dress is mostly grey, but pops with shades of red and orange here and there. You can also add a jean jacket if it gets chilly at night. Another way to experiment with the floral trend is to go for a darker mini that pops with bright little flowers here and there like Reese Witherspoon’s Madewell dress.

White

White is everywhere this year! And what’s better than white? Try pairing it with lace or even sheer panels for a fresh Summer look. Camilla Alves wears a dress she designed herself for INC that’s covered with lace all over, while supermodel Miranda Kerr flaunts her sculpted body in a white top with sheer panels around the bust and a white skirt with patterned cutouts all over the hem area. If you’re not a fan of an all-white outfit, then pick a white handbag like Miranda’s (hers is Prada) that goes with different pieces of your wardrobe for the coming season.

 

White Lace

 

 

Accessories, Accessories, Accessories!

One of the best ways of easing yourself into Easter/Spring is investing in some bright accessories. Pick out yellow pumps like Beyonce’s, or yellow sunnies for a day out like Taylor Swift. If you’re in for a splurge, check out Khloe Kardashian’s yellow Hermes Birkin Bag- who wouldn’t want to have that stunning handbag no matter what season is coming!

Wishing you all a great LONG weekend! And a very Happy Easter to everyone :)

Sofia Vergara is one of my favorite celebrities; she’s funny, outspoken, and looks good in anything! Sofia gave birth to her son Manolo when she was only 20 years old, so it should come as no surprise that this duo is extremely close (she’s 40) to the extent that they shot a “Got Milk” ad together!

My favorite Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr is one doting supermodel mommy! She’s constantly photographed all over New York City carrying her son Flynn. Miranda and Orlando’s good looks have clearly been passed on to Flynn who is absolutely adorable!

Red Carpet | This Week’s Best Dressed!

While Rihanna was hands down best dressed at the Grammy awards on Sunday night, she was not the only one bringing fierce fashion to the red carpet this week!

Let’s start off with Miranda Kerr; leave it to the Victoria’s Secret angel to look like a million bucks even in the simplest of outfits. Miranda hits a press event in her native Australia in a simple, yet girly LBD and fun ankle strap floral heels and her signature bright smile!

Mila Kunis hit the red carpet last night in Los Angeles for the premiere of her new movie, Oz- the Great and Powerful in a Dolce & Gabbana cream and lace feminine gown, Sutra earrings, and silver Christian Louboutin peep toes.

Zoe Saldana knows how to make cutouts look classy and she does just that in a cream strapless dress with a peakaboo cutout under the bust. She finishes her look with a red lip, Louboutins, and fun understated gold jewelry.

Whenever I see pictures of Olivia Wilde, she’s usually walking her dog or getting coffee with Jason Sudeikis in jeans, a hoodie, and a baseball cap. So it’s such a nice change to see her looking so stunning in this black and nude Talbot Runhof dress at the launch of Revlon’s luxurious color silk buttercream line. Her Nicholas Kirkwood peep toes scream sexy sophisticated and her natural hair and makeup let the dress shine even more!

For the premiere of her HBO documentary, Life is But a Dream in New York City, Beyoncé makes a classy entrance in an Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown. Awkward pose aside, B is simply beautiful in this glittery champagne gown, blown out straight locks and Laurraine Shwartz jewels. All these elements make Beyoncé look like a dream and that’s why she tops the best dressed list for this week!
