Met Gala 2014 Red Carpet

Thanks to being at work all day, I have managed to avoid reading & seeing most other red carpet reviews of last nights Met Gala, which is a good thing (cos I’m pretty easily influenced) but fortunately I did see enough to already say with some certainty that overall, this was a much better (and by better I mean, literally better dressed) red carpet than last year. The Charles James inspired theme this year also made for a much safer red carpet, which maybe also meant it lacked it a bit of risque sparkle arkle, but all in all, it has still given me more than enough to waffle on about for a bit. So settle in and lets discuss…

Lets start with my picks for best dressed, kicking off with Ms Bradley Cooper, Suki W, a flouncy flesh coloured vision in cake tiered Burberry, hands down amazing 9.5/10, which I never thought I’d give a nude coloured gown (mainly because most people who get put in this colour end up looking like a healthy shade of warmed up death) but Suks gets it bang on thanks to that deep red lip perfectly toned to contrast her dress, stunning. Surprisingly, Riri comes in next, who controversially donned the most perfectly wrapped, white out toned 2 piece by Stella Mc Cartney, 9/10. Next up has to be VB also having a white moment, in a slinky squared off strapless that looks as though it was literally built onto her body, 9/10, simple and beautiful, a highly generous score that is honestly, most likely highly influenced by her David Beckham arm candy.

Yonce is up next, mainly because I’m worried that if I  don’t put her in my best dressed, the Beygency will come after me. Ba da bum tsich… Seriously though, bad lol’s aside, she looks absolutely killer in her custome Givenchy and her headwear is next level (bound to be copied furiously just in time for spring racing here in Melbourne) so an easy 9/10 for the sheer charcoal sparkle. Rounding out my favs, is newly Kelly Osborne inspired lilac haired Nicole Richie. Now while I really hope this hair colour thing is a quick faze, her Donna Karen Atelier gown is perfection on her, even if slightly predictable given it’s similarity  to the gold Marc Jacobs she wore to last years CFDA’s, 8.5/10 nonetheless, love this.

It wouldn’t be a red carpet event without Kimye and this year Kim well and truly ‘earned’ (paid for) her place on the rug and had the good fortune of having Elber Albaz of Lanvin dress her, in a stunning navy & black gown that draped beautifully from the waist, but honestly, it just didn’t seem quite right on Kimmy at all, 6.5/10. Shame really, but that said, at least this gown can’t be compared to a 3 seat sofa, so still, a big improvement on last year, well done. While on the topic of the Kardash klan, this year they managed to infiltrate the gala even further thanks to Kendall Jenner going through her 15 minutes of fashion fame, arriving in form fitting nude structured Topshop alongside Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn and Toni Garrn. She’s only a youngen and has made an excellent first go of it, so credit were it’s due, 8/10.

Now SJP pretty much owns the Met Gala and every year really embraces not only the theme but the entire soul of the Costume Institutes’ Exhibit, happily pushing fashion boundaries and always up for a little theatre in her look. This time round was no different with her monochromatic princess style bouffant Oscar De La Renta gown worn perfectly with ivory gloves, 8/10, with an extra point for the red signature of the designer, shamelessly scrawled on the train of her dress, in the full knowledge that it will take centre stage as she ascends the famous steps. Girl of the moment Lupita Nyong’o shook it up in beaded green sparkletastic Prada, a fun take on the more classical theme, definitely wont be for everyone, but she does currently have fashion immunity, so lets go with 8/10. Naomi’s up next and could have worn a paper bag and still looked perfection but luckily she didn’t and opted for Givenchy instead, showing us that her supermodel powers also allow her to defy gravity as well as the natural ageing process, gorgeous, 8/10. Golden goodness was Leighton Meester in beaded Emilio Pucci, beautifully natural and modern styling shoots her way up my list to a good old 8/10.

Rosie HW repped Olivier Rousteing at Balmain and looked the absolute shizz, but on a side note, I’d really like to see Rousteing do a custom made gown one year, and not use straight off the runway, because lets be honest, he’s beyond incredible and I’d just love to see what he could give us. 7/10 for Rosie nonetheless. Blake L wore custom Gucci as expected, and yes was reminiscent of Veronica Lake but there was something just a little off for me, I think it may have been the shoulder cape train, still beautiful but not my personal cup of caffeine, 7/10. Zac Posen presented quite a few ladies last night, but my pick of his crop was easily Arizona Muse in perfect, classic voluminous red, 8/10. Finally Solange Knowles needs a mention, for her perfect 3.1 Phillip Lim peach fizz mini dress worn back to perfection with a Liza inspired wig, and matching jewels, sooo pretty, 8/10.

Now lets talk those lovely lasses who maybe next time need a bit more help and who else could we possibly start with other than Sandra Lee. Ok lets keep it short and sharp. 80’s bridesmaid on steroids. Too much volume and far too much satin. The end. 2/10. Kristen Stewart, I’m sorry but to me you are not Chanel and only you could make it look as awkward as this, 3/10. Amanda Peet, you’re a beautiful girl, but ditch the daggy fringe and the busy print of the dress swallows you, 4/10. Lea Michelle, I love gold I really do, but this extra tyre of fabric around the waist and weird neckline just does not come together, sorry, 4/10. Kate Upton you vivacious vixen, I realise you were attempting sexy old school Italian but it seems to have manifested as more of a tule endorsing German barmaid, 3/10. Finally Rita Ora, the wrapping on the limbs, no, it’s weird, sorry, 4/10.
