Our Met Ball Favourites.

The annual Costume Institute Gala took place on May 7th this year. It is often called the Met Ball and is nicknamed the "Oscars of the East Coast". The Met Ball celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. The event is hosted in New York City by Vogue, so therefore is one of the biggest nights in fashion! I am a sucker for a beautiful gown, so have spent the last couple of days scrolling through all the photos of this world-wide famous event from this year. They range from the beautiful and elegant, to the slightly odd and eccentric! 
Their were a few rather oddly-dressed celebs this year, but I have to say my least favourite dress was worn by Kristen Stewart. I rather like the bodice of the dress, but it all falls apart from the waist down! The strange blocking of colours are not for me, and I don't think it particularly flatters her figure.The worst element to this outfit though has to be awarded to those shoes! They are just awful. Sorry Kristen, but you have won my 'Worst Dressed' award of the night. 
On the other hand, there is Dianna Agron who plays Quinn in 'Glee'! I think she looks absolutely stunning in a floor length emerald green gown. The colour is so complementing of her skin tone and hair colour. And her hair style and make up is just the icing on the cake. Well done, what a babe!

After my initial excitement of sifting through an array of beautiful gowns, to be honest, I was fairly disappointed by the amount of bizarre and odd dresses! Although I did appreciate that some made us giggle (Florence!), some just weren't quite as elegant and beautiful as I had hoped. This is why actress Chloe Sevigny has won my 'Worst Dressed' award. Sorry Chloe! but for me, the bizarre dress seemed inappropriate for such a glamorous event. With a 'plasticy'/ mirrored-looking/ barely there dress teamed with cartoon style shoes and a mismatching clutch, Chloe unfortunately failed to match the elegance and grace of 'Twilight' star, Ashley Greene.
Ashley, who wore a Donna Karan creation looked stunning in the floor-length, Grecian style gown. In my opinion, the dress was perfect for the occasion and was made even better with her minimal use of accessories and simple wavy hair. Beautiful!
Jessica Alba's dress looked absolutely stunning at the Met ball choosing an elegant dress is spot on for this red carpet event. Most of the dresses were far too over the top for my liking. Jessica Alba's dress suits her figure and complextion perfectly so I've chosen to award her best dressed. The material flows beautifully from her waist and the metallic goldy-brown matches her gorgeous hair.
I'm a big fan of Alex Chung's style most of the time but on this occasion she let us down! She's wearing a white shirt under a purple and black leather dress. I'm really not keen on the mix of textures and styles in this outfit. The leather dress alone is not very tasteful with an unflattering shape and cut.


  1. I really adore Lilly Collin's gown! Who is she wearing?

    1. She's wearing Valentino! She does look stunning! x
