The Met Gala is here! I love seeing the red carpet for the sheer number of brilliant wacky creations that you otherwise only get to se eon runways. This years exhibition was on the theme Punk : Chaos to Couture. While some chose to dress in the theme, others ignored it. But either way, lets take a look at what the ladies donned.
in Wes Gordon
I love the pants and gown combo. This particular lace and sheer bodice looks really beautiful. I love her hair and makeup as well.
in Chanel Haute Couture
She looks appropriate. It’s definitely a gown that stood out on the red carpet, in a way, because of it’s simplicity.
Lauren Santo Domingo
in Dolce & Gabbana
This is on a lot of worst dressed lists but really, I do like it. It might look very retro but it has that hint of sexy. And really, if not the Met Gala, where else could you wear this?
in Wes Gordon
Yes, that is also Wes Gordon next to her. Isn’t this modern chic punk at it’s best? That harness really pulls the look together (no pun intended). And that metallic yellow gold is really striking and beautiful.
in Emanuel Ungaro
Umm, this is too weird. I feel like if the gown was without the applique, it had the strong shoulders and slit to make it unique. The applique just looks crafty. I love her hair but perhaps a bold lip would have helped.
in Christian Dior
Umm, channeling the Sun Goddess perhaps? I do like the dress without that stiff cape thing though.
in Alberta Feretti
This is certainly one of the more classic and avan garde mix looks, she looks brilliant.
in Chanel and Balmain
If it wasn’t for that crazy hair and make up which makes her look old, I might have liked this combo. I like the dress a lot, the coat, not so much.
in Michael Kors
She looks so stunning and sexy in this. Love the look and the spiky clutch.
The collar detail and colour of this gown is beautiful. But the sleeves with that ‘princessy’ updo just killed it for me.
People might say a lot of shit about her, but she knows how to dress and make a statement. Brilliant dress! And I like the simple hair and makeup here.
I love the gown and her look, so fierce!
in Tommy Hilfiger
It’s rather simple, but she looks quite good. Love, the bold lip and that yellow looks really good on her.
in Burberry Prorsum
This was one of my favourites. It’s punk but still elegant. I love her hair and styling as well.
in custom Versace
Isn’t that just amazing? I love the spiky bits of the arm and shoulder. I wonder how many people got injured while making this though…

It’s so extravagant and out of this world that you have to admire it! I love love the boots! Only SJP could have pulled this off.
in custom Vera Wang
I dunno, it feel like it shows too much, didn’t like it on her at all.
in custom Givenchy
The Queen has arrived. She looked like the leader of the rebels. Absolutely embodied the theme. Flawless look is flawless.
in Marc Jacobs
You may not like the hair but this is one of the best thematic dress on the red carpet. And she carries it off well with spunk.
in Donna Karan Atelier
I love the gown. It has that rugged sort of look is has a very punk feel to it and of course, the hair!!
in custom Givenchy
On first look, you don’t see any punk here except maybe the bold lip. But she still channels the Lisbeth persona and the seemingly angelic dress looks tougher. I love that transformation.
in Monique Lhuillier
She looks fab and stunning. Love the pantsuit and leather bodice. On a side note though, how annoying is Elena this season?
*gulp* Soooo not the dress you ought to wear when you are pregnant or if you have awesome curves. I wish she had chosen something softer and flowing that didn’t make her look so shapeless. Terrible choice.
It’s a brilliant gown that very few and pull off and this is a good example of how to not wear it. The hair and makeup just ruined this.
in Carolina Herrera
I do like the dress, but it just looks so stiff and hard on her.
in Mary Katrantzou
The dress is certainly not for the timid and while she has the conviction and confidence to carry it off, it just didn’t suit the occasion.
in Vera Wang
I’m not sure what it is, but the whole look just feels off. It’s not any one thing in particular. The hair with that makeup, with that gown, with those gloves, it just doesn’t make a good fit.
in Calvin Klein
Simple and beautiful. The nude lip really gives her a delicate appearance.
in Proenza Schouler
The gown is rocking but the turban if it were styled different would have given her a more youthful and edgy look. She looks older than the is and the make up certainly doesn’t help.
in Tory Burch
She looks stunning in the gown, I love it.
in Louis Vuitton
I’m on the fence about this look, I feel like there’s too much going on and doesn’t give her shape. But the love the colour and how it looks on her.
So, this is the end of part one! My queen Madonna was possibly the best dressed along with Cara Delevingne, Rooney Mara, Miley Cyrus and Constance Jablonski. Stay tuned for part 2! There’s more to come.
