Met Gala Round-Up

One of the most awaited nights in fashion, the Met Gala, celebrated its 69th anniversary early this month. The theme, China: Through the Looking Glass, allowed some stars to shine on the red carpet. Here are some of my favorites from this year's ball.


Starting with my favorite, and maybe the most talked about look of the night: Rihanna pulled off this gown handmade (it took two whole years!) by Chinese designer Guo Pei flawlessly. I'll be impatiently waiting for more from Guo Pei, a Chinese woman sure to shake up the white male-dominated fashion scene.


In stark contrast to Rihanna's over-the-top ballgown and cape, some of my favorite looks of the night were relatively simple, with traditional fabrics, sophisticated silhouettes, and clean cuts. Stella McCartney, wearing her own design, captured the glamour of both Chinese royalty and old Hollywood in a tasteful, effortless way. Deep red lips were a staple for both Emma Roberts, in custom Ralph Lauren, and Carey Mulligan, wearing custom Balenciaga, while Reese Witherspoon, in Jason Wu, flawlessly pulled off a clean, simple silhouette.


On the other hand, some stars rocked looks that were a little more out-there. Beyonce bared it all in Givenchy, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and walked the red carpet with Jay-Z by her side. Keri Russell showed some extra skin as well, in Altuzarra. Contrasting Beyonce and Keri's ultra-sexy gowns, Lily Collins, in Chanel Haute Couture, and Kerry Washington, in Prada, went for more sweet, girly looks.

Which Met Gala look was your favorite? Do you favor the more traditional looks, or the risk-takers?
