New York was out in full force on 4 May for the 44th Met Ball Gala as the glitziest of fashion events of the year took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Met Ball Gala 2015 fashion verdict is everywhere to be seen and there is even a documentary worth watching!
For the first time, I can safely say there were more best dressed celebrities who made it onto my list than those who had heads turning and not for the right reasons. With the theme ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’, there was a guest list to rival with celebrities from all professions walking the red carpet. Traditional designers and fashion houses were of course on hand, teaming up with their favourite stars to dress to perfection, whilst the crème de la crème of hair stylists, jewellers and makeup artists were in full speed to ensure every celebrity was looking their best.
Only a few failed to impress, including the likes of Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker and Rhianna in an uncharacteristically yellow caped creation by Chinese designer Guo Pei. Sarah Jessica Parker did not nail the look this year as she chose to wear a custom made gown by H&M and oversized Philip Treacy headpiece which resembled fancy dress more than high fashion.
For the majority of celebrities, most were dazzling in their fabulous finery for the biggest fashion event of the year and looked breath-taking. Yes, I am talking about the likes of Diane Kruger, Emily Blunt, Kate Hudson, Alexa Chung and Bee Schaffer to name but a few. Debuting classic looks, their interpretation of ‘Chinese White Tie’ was spot on!
