MET Ball Beautiful

The Annual MET Gala was last night in New York and after watching the red carpet I have only one word: SHOCK! 

There were substantially more misses than hits for me but it is not my style to point out all the fashion blunders I want to share instead the looks I LOVED! I must say however that the stars (or their stylists) need to invest in portable steamers, perhaps glasses and a little bit more taste. I look forward to the MET red carpet the most as I expect to see the most Stylish, Creative and Amazing looks. Let's just say I was underwhelmed this year.

The Looks I LOVED - Top 5 :

Karolina Kurkova in Rachel Zoe Collection.

I LOVE how Vintage-Inspired CHIC this is. The turban is the most amazing touch since the exhibition is about Elsa Schiaparelli & Miuccia Prada (Impossible Conversation). This is TRES GLAM! Exactly what I expected to see at the MET.

    Agreed! Especially with Rosie and Karolina Kurkova - she cut a flawless, timeless silhouette. If you can't go for it at an event like that, then when else? Go GLAM!

    My overall impression of this year was a little sloppy, and a little safe. Fab dresses that were thrown off by awkward hair and heavy, orange, aging make up and oddly tinted eyebrows. And in general, an apparent lack of use of a stylist at all. (*cough* Kate Upton :/)

    My fave looks (included a lot of black when I usually opt for colour, but these ladies did it well and kept the attention in the simple details) :
    - Carolyn Murphy
    - Liv Tyler
    - Carey Mulligan
    - Kate Bosworth (severe, but striking)
    - Leslie Mann
    - Emma Roberts (*dress & hair)
    - Kristen Bell
    - Rooney Mara
    - Lea Michelle

    Armchair critic, over and out... for now ;)
