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.

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!

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!

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

Red Carpet | The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball!

One of my all time favorite brands- Tiffany & Co. – celebrated its annual publication of its Blue Book in New York City late last week.

 

TIF

 

The Tiffany Blue Book (as the publication is called) is the brand’s annual catalogue that shows the jeweler’s latest dazzling pieces in all their glamour and brilliance. What’s even more interesting is the fact that this Blue Book has been published yearly since 1845 and has been known as the first mail order catalogue to be distributed in the United States of America.

The very exclusive event took place at New York’s Rockefeller’s Center where a giant Tiffany Blue Box was erected and a blue light show lit the skies of the big city. Hollywood’s A list stars came out to celebrate the big night wearing stunning designer gowns and more importantly, they were decked out in thousands of carats from Tiffany’s 2013 diamond collection. Take a look!
