The MET Gala. Need I say more? Glamour that is only seen once a year, colours, sequins and intricate designs are the prerequisites. The way in which they are interpreted is completely individual and unique to the person and their designer. In 2015, Asian aesthetics ran high on the red carpet and the Gala theme. The MET did not disappoint, yet again, with ballgowns and dress trains in full force (Rihanna!) for one night. Oh, and skin. LOTS of skin! This was a tricky list do decide and I have been pondering all day as to who should be on it but, here are my favourite looks from the 2015 MET Gala.
1. SARAH JESSICA PARKER
When unique and individual are used to describe almost everyones outfit, Sarah Jessica Parker takes this to a new level. Look at that headpiece!
2, ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY
This is classic and suits Rosie perfectly, the dress cupping the nape of her neck adding to the allure of the peach and crystal ensemble.
3. JUSTIN BIEBER
LOOK AT THAT BLAZER! Do I need to say more?! This is probably the only time JB will be on my best dressed list but, wow, he looks beautiful.
4. STELLA MCCARTNEY (PICTURED WITH CARA DELEVIGNE)
Black, draping, silhouetted. Stella pulls this off with class and elegance, exactly why she is one of my muses.
5. ALEXA CHUNG
Speaking of muses, Alexa is daring in this purple strapless number and rocks it with her statement carefree attitude.
6. FKA TWIGS
Apart from the man candy on her arm, FKA’s chosen colour scheme and cut of her dress was unlike any other and set her apart from the crowd of gowns and pantsuits.
7. KIRSTEN WIGG
Buttercup yellow with a sheer train to match, I love this simple yet justified look from the glowing blonde-haired actress.
8. ALLISON WILLIAMS
It is incredibly hard to rock red on a red carpet but somehow Allison manages this. Loving the black piping on the waist and arms!
9. AMANDA SEYFRIED
Mama Mia! Amanda is a goddess in this figure-hugging ensemble, the neckline perfect for her build.
10. JOSEPHINE DE LA BAUME [& MARK RONSON]
HOT DAMN! Josephine’s style is completely unique to her and this is not limited to her chosen outfit tonight. It’s simple yet affective and catches your eye. Mark Ronson doesn’t look bad either, but are they bedroom slippers?
11. HALLIE STEINFELD
So cute! the yellow bling with the red dress effects sites the outfit like icing on a cake!
12. LILLY ALDRIDGE
The colour made the look for me. And the lipstick. And the hair. And everything else.
13. CAREY MULLIGAN
the fabric and the cut just above the ankles is an absolute love from me! Carey looks beautiful in an almost Old Hollywood look.
14. HANNAH BAGSHAWE [& EDDIE REDMAYNE]
There’s something about this outfit that I absolutely adore. It’s unorthodox but appropriate. And they are the cutest couple ever.
15. SIENNA MILLER
PANTS! Just keep looking at this ensemble. It is seriously understated.
Honourable mentions to Beyonce, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West and Zendaya; their chosen looks were as specky as they come.
