Fashion’s biggest night of the year, if you don’t already know, occurred May 5, 2014. The fundraising event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is a night where the dress is the most important aspect of any guest. Hosted by Vogue, the Met Gala, aka Met Ball, celebrated and fund-raised for the Met’s Costume Institute for the opening of their Fashion Exhibit. Raising nearly $9 million last year, it’s an important night for celebrities to dress extravagantly.
Here’s the top Best and Worst dressed of the night…
1. Donatella Versace
Yup, I just threw up on her dress. And that’s exactly why it looks like that. Even that’s not a good enough excuse for this disaster. She always wears strange pieces, but I just couldn’t let this one pass bye. She looks like she’s about to go visit aliens in space, because that’s where this dress belongs.
2. Kirsten Dunst
This isn’t the Star Wars premiere. This just had way too much going on and needs to be buried. Donatella’s meeting her up in space.
3. Kristen Stewart
4 random fabrics of the same color piled on top of each other. Really Kristen? Really Chanel? (BTW in all reality, love Kristen with the orange hair)
4. Kate Upton
C’mon, Kate. I definitely think more highly of smoking babes. But then again, she’s usually not quite dressed at all. Little-miss-bo-peep, go back to you pasture.
5. Maggie Gyllenhaal
She kind of looks like she’s wearing a curtain she stole from the That 70s Show set. This is just way too much polka dots. The collar on the top is too casual and the colors are too blah. And the cape to match… Really… There’s no fixing this dress.
6. Elizabeth Olsen
Elizabeth, did you join figure skating? Will I see you in the next winter Olympics? Hopefully not. Unbelievably unflattering and too light for her skin tone. Adorable shoes, wrong dress.
7. Katie Holmes
Oh Katie…. (sigh), shriveled like a rotten peach.. This dress explains itself.
8. Lupita Nyong’o
This is a night to look like a princess, not a flapper. I am seriously disappointed after her fashionable past. Although, as always, she knows what colors glow on her flawless skin (and I’m a sucker for her shoes!).
9. Rita Ora
Lets not even start on the shoes. And the ridiculous arm wrap. Do I possibly need to say anymore?
1. Cara Delevingne
She doesn’t even need an extravagant ball gown to be a stunning beauty. She may not be dressed traditionally for this event, overall she looks amazing. Sporting the latest crop top and high-waist – well, anything! – trend, she looks sophisticated yet sexy. A stunner .
2. Joan Smalls
The blue lipstick was daring and fab – The Vera Wang gown gorgeously fitting her like she’s just in her skin. Possibly #1 best.
3. Emma Stone
Oh Emma, you make the fashion world go round in this Thakoon outfit. Simple yet elegant. The top could have been a bit less casual for the occasion, but still hits all the right spots.
4. Victoria Beckham
In her own design, Mrs. Beckham always (usually) takes the right turns in fashion, and did in this amazing piece. It’s clear: the plain and simple are winning the race this year.
5. Suki Waterhouse
This Burberry gown is true beauty. It’s the perfect amount.
6. Emmy Rossum
Floral’s are huge this Spring and Summer, and Emmy made all the right choices in this gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown. Bring on the sunshine and tea parties.
7. Kendall Jenner
A huge fan of the rising model, I didn’t expect anything less than perfection. In Topshop, Kendall fits the gown perfectly, and the gown fits Kendall. The Stunning Chopard necklace was adds to the sophisticated look.
8. Blake Lively
The already stunning actress blew my mind away in this Gucci gown. There are no real words to describe this beauty.
Giant, and giant-ly breathtaking. What a perfect gown for this event. My top #1 of the night, this dress represents exactly what this event is all about. I couldn’t imagine this gown on anyone else. Cant get enough of this.
10. Sarah Jessica Parker
Fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta. She always goes big and crazy and always makes it look fabulous. Her hair is gorgeous and the gown just screams ‘Met Ball 2014’. My second favorite gown of the night, doing the Met Gala gown tradition right.
