After the rush that was awards season, I miss these fashion round-up posts!
Of course, the Met Gala (or Met Ball, or Costume Institute Gala, depending on who you talk to!) happened last night and that is always where the craziest and haute-est fashion comes out! The event is co-chaired by Anna Wintour (pictured above at last night’s Met Gala in Prada), who personally hand-picks the guest list.
You have to have a broader mind than usual because the fashion is quite eccentric, but I really enjoyed checking out all the dresses last night! As always, I have rounded up my top and bottom picks. Browse through and share your thoughts in the comments!
- My favourite picks of the night:
Canadian! actress Nina Dobrev in custom Donna Karan. The drama of this dress would be too much for me on another occasion, but was perfect for the Met Gala.
Gisele Bundchen in Givenchy was stunning. Her Givenchy dress’s structure was reminiscent of the dress the designer put Rooney Mara in at the Oscars (click here to see). Fabulous structure, and the sequins added major glamour.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada. The front of this dress was not as interesting, but I love the back and the hemline. Really showcases her legs!
Jessica Alba in gold Michael Kors. Clearly this gold lame is here to stay after Meryl Streep wore it at the Oscars. Her skin tone was beautiful with the dress’s colour.
Jessica Biel in Prada, with her fiance Justin Timberlake, of course. I thought the dress was not as formal as others, for sure, but I loved the neckline and waistline, and the pattern was beautiful too.
