03 May A look into 2016’s Met Gala…
The Met Galas are always a joy to watch for the many fashion surprises we get. This is the one day where celebrities get to dress up crazy and go all the way (not that they can’t any other day). This year’s theme is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. There were loads of cool outfits and pretty dresses. I wanted to share with you guys my 15 favorite looks and why I love them.
I am always and forever in love with her. She’s the cutest and I absolutely love her costumey theatrical outfits for her shows and the elegance she has on the red carpet. This Prada signed dress is the bomb. I love how loud and dramatic it looks. I give her props for wearing it so elegantly well.
I love the work on this number. Atelier Versace is always on point with cut outs and panels. They have the most intricate detailing ever. Their dresses are both elegant and so fashion forward. The silhouettes are flattering and cuts are interesting. This dress is a total winner. Way to go Kate!!
Even though her look is quite simple, I love it. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi about it that I absolutely adore. It’s girly, cute yet a little badass. It looks so 90s!! Perhaps this is what I love about it. This Louis Vuitton number is fresh and hip and definitely deserves a shout out.
She always knows what to wear and how to wear it. Her style is timeless. Blake is always on point in her outfits and her elegance gives her extra cookies!!! This Burberry number is sultry, sexy and super feminine. The color suits her so well and the shine is subtle yet loud enough to make a statement. She looks like a Grecian goddess ˂3
Even though I think the color washes her out a little bit; I can’t get over this beautiful gown. Dolce & Gabbana always know how to make a woman look wonderful and scrumptious. Their creations are just divine and to die for. The workmanship on Kate’s dress is stunning; the intricate detailing is on point. Love this on Bosworth!!! She rocked it.
To me, she’s the queen of the red carpet, there’s not one look she missed. Her outfits, her makeup and hair are constantly winning. This dress is yummy! This Valentino dress is celestial and dreamy and wonderful and beautiful and just ugh!! So prettttyyyy ˂3 I would totes wear this dress to breakfast, lunch and supper. Nicole looks magical. She deserves a massive high-five for this number.
This Marc Jacobs’ dress is so delicate. It’s very feminine and Irina is wearing it well. The color suits her well and the cut even more. People would either love this dress or hate it. But I sincerely think the lacy fabric and the color make this dress elegant in a very simple way. The bustier top gives it a sexy oomph and Irina really knows how to make it work.
She’s the one celebrity I would totes be best friends with. Her charm and allure make me want to eat her (in a totally not creepy innocent way). This Prada gown with a corset embellished with floral accents makes her look fierce and fashion forward. The simplicity in the design but the complexity of the detailing makes Emma look like a gothy gladiator ready to slay style-haters. Her new hair color is super epic too! Love Emma ˂3
Balmain did it again. The color, the texture, the cut and the detailing on Miranda’s outfit is just special. It’s unique in every sense of the word. She really knows how to dress her hot bod! I don’t know why but I find this outfit super joyful despite the dark colors. The ruffles on the skirt are super cute!!! EEEEE. She’s a total babe!!
She definitely take the prize of the coolest dress in this year’s Met Gala. Her Zac Posen gown makes look like Cinderella. But the fact that it lights up…that’s just another level of wow. The thing I am mostly attracted to in this dress is the fabric…the silky sheen snow blue tone color gives this dress a royal Disney princess look and Claire is wearing it super well. Zac’s effortless layering skills are always on point. I commend him for his talent and wonderful taste. He is truly a handy designer.
Even though this Tommy Hilfiger dress is super simple, the color and the cut make this mention worthy. It’s sheer, sleek, sexy, delicate and feminine all at once. Sometimes less is more and she truly proved that. The simple styling gives this dress a shot to stand out on its own without clutter.
She got the costume part right. Zoe killed it with this Valentino creation. She looked mysterious and sultry. The shoes are so cool; I wish I could own them right now. This dress commands presence and she delivers. This wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it really does it for me. She’s a daredevil princess!!
What I liked about Taylor’s look is the edginess. It’s not the usual girly girl look that Taylor usually goes for. She took a risk with this Louis Vuitton dress and it paid off. The hair is a little questionable, but I commend her for risking it. She definitely has a combat slayer look going and it’s working in her favor.
I find this look cute for some reason…Saorise looks adrobs with the feathers and the little butterfly. This Christopher Kane dress is interesting and it gives her a certain edge. The dress is a statement in itself and she wore it well.
Sofia Sanchez de Betak
I can’t help it. Another D&G creation I fell in love with. D&G always hit it out of the park in terms of elegance and design. They are a killer duo and I look up to them hard. I am in love with everything they do. The bohemian, free spiritedness, elegance, creativity and complexity of their designs just make them #1 in my book. The colors and textures are always up to par and beyond. Sofia knows her stuff and choosing this piece gives her major thumps up. The dress and cape combination is pure royalty. Owning a D&G dress is on my bucket list…I don’t know where I would wear it, but even if I did at home and sipped on tea, I’d die happy.
