Best Dressed, Met Gala
lots of fabulous looks but i think Diane Kruger looks the best,as stunning as always,lover her!
and thank you so much for the amazing coverage, FC
love her..nor lover
you are very welcome x
me too re: diane kruger! i was thinking the votes were going to be split over so many gorgeous gowns, but the majority seems to be with us (at least so far!)
I thought Shalom Harlow was the best dressed at this event!! I can’t believe that she’s not included in this pole. I, like you, have been waiting to see that spectacular Marchesa on the red carpet and I was so happy that it was finally worn, and accessorized perfectly.
I love your choices – I get so tired of people whose fashion sense seems so geared towards the easiest choices or about making fun of anyone who takes a chance.
thank you xx
i really agree with you..sometimes things get so stupid when people who don’t get fashion, make fun of people who are actually looking really good,for eg..i saw that show ‘fashion police’ oscar coverage when joan rivers ridiculed cate blanchett’s givenchy gown,cate was her worst dressed!maybe the fashion police should come and arrest all such people and make them shut up.
Coming back to the point i think people like FC are a fabulous and refreshing change.
thank you. I like to keep it real
Totally agree with you! In some peoples mind we should all wear blach dresses and shoes! ;-)hehe
I liked Diane Kruger so much I love her style..Karolina Kurkova was amazing too,but this time I voted for Ginnifer Goodwin!!
( sorry for my bad spelling all the time)
Gisele was the best dressed IMO but since she’s not here I have to go with SJP. She looks so elegant.
Just wanted to comment to say thanks for your once again fabulous coverage. I always look forward to reading your thoughts. I think christina ricci looked amazing, she got my vote hands down.
thank you for supporting my site…glad you are enjoying it so much. x
I adored Ginnifer, Diane, Liv and Christina. But my vote goes to Christina because it seems like she dressed to tribute the style of Alexander McQueen.
And slightly off topic, but fabulous coverage of the event, as per usual FC. Thanks for the effort you put in; you did an amazing job!!
Thank you…I loved every second of it.
I was soo sure that christina ricci was my best dress at this event until i saw karolina…..i’ll come back in a few hours to vote once i’ve decided! heh
i’ve decided to go with christina ricci. its amazing how someone so petite can carry such dramatic gown!
thanks for the great coverage FC!!
My favorite was Daphne Guinness!
Madonna! Easily, her gown is a dream.
I vote for Mariacarla Boscono.
I agree. AG was one of the best dressed. Gennifer’s gown hung odd on her hips. I’m surprised she’s on this list.
Ahh what a beautiful event! So happy to see 3 of my favourites in this list (Blake, Diane and Zoe)! I went with Blake in the end. I also really loved Dakota Fanning’s and Ashley Greene princessy gowns!
Once again, thank you so much for your coverage and for bringing all these lovely looks to us. Really appreciate it.
I could have easily dumped a few women for Freida, but even then I am not sure she would have outshone Diane.
She worked the hell out of that dress.
Natalia Vodianova was best
It ‘s the hardest thing to pick the best…. so many fabulous looks, my favo is Diane Kruger, next Liv Tyler, Christina Ricci , Blake Lively, Dakota Fanning, and i also like Giselle’s red dress….save me!!
I want to thank FC for everything you’ve done, I really enjoy read every thread of MET GALA ‘s topic, you became my favo fashion site.
Thank u. Thats very kind of you
I’m so glad you didn’t include Gwyneth in here. InStyle named her best dressed….blah…
I fav is Karolina, actually all the supermodels rocked.
Shows that they are not supermodels for nothing.
Wow really. Gwyneth wouldn’t have come in my top 50
I love Liv’s look until it gets to the yellow ombre – yuck. Sorry, but it looks like she got peed on. SJP looks great but I wish that she had worn a more dramatic McQueen look in his honour. Have to go for Christina, but I know Diane will win!
Karolina Kurkova in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture for the win
Why isn’t Gisele Bundchen in your list?
She was best dressed for me.
I’d have put Liu Wen instead of Zewelleger but I voted for Kiki she was mind blowing !! Close 2nd is Ricci!
Thank God for the models !!
was totally confused who to pick went for diane kruger in the end. her look is both stunning and timeless! love it.
Liv or Christina, Liv or Christina. I ended up going with Liv because it’s springtime where I live and I loved the white/yellow ombre. But gee, along those lines, how did I miss Zoe’s ray of sunshine?
See, that’s why I come to RCFW. FC always serves up something I missed or fashion education I lack. FC’s coverage of the Met gala was second to none as far as I am concerned. Wow – thank you, FC, for curating these looks for us and for your discerning eye.
glad to hear you enjoyed it.
Thanks so much
I have mixed feelings about this Gala… I feel many of the dresses worn were love/hate ones and even a few deja-vu’s (Ahem, Gwyneth Paltrow)…
FC – Absolutely amazing coverage as usual, thank you SO much! I was up all night working on my essay and it was nice to have your site as a little retreat every now and then
thanks so much…I now can’t wait for Cannes…two weeks of non-stop fashion
Okay… somehow I totally missed Christina’s dress until now. Now that is best dressed, hands down! And she actually fit the theme. it’s too late to change my vote, but I had to mention her awesome dress.
Took a bit of thought but my vote went to Karolia…because only her and Christina made me go “woah” and i feel like the Met Gala is all about the “woahs” not just the “oooh pretty”
FC – such awesome coverage…i kept eagerly refreshing the page over the last two days!! THANK YOU!
thank you. it was my pleasure
where is Gisele?? i need her in this poll!!!! hehehe, of curse, my favorite!
My favorite was Jennifer Lopez, but she’s not here so I go for Christina Ricci… Ashley Greene was good to!
Amazing coverage FC. I have been a lurker on your site for a couple of years and this is the first time I am commenting. And thank you for all the work that you put in this site. Its the first thing I check every morning. The Met Gala coverage was fabulous.
Coming to the best dressed, it was between Diane, Karolina and Ginnifer for me. Voted for Diane in the end. She is just perfect.
I’m so glad I brought so many lurkers out today
Love Diane Kruger, Madonna, Christina RIcci, Emma Stone and Karolina Kurkova.
i think karolina kurkova and christina ricci were the best becouse they got the mcqueen sense of style and they don´t even wore mcqueen… that the sad part for me … i´m a big fan of lee mcqueen and i was so exciting waiting for this event because i really expected to see so much faboulous mcqueen dresses, this was the perfect ocassion to show off his spectacular creations, to step out, to be bold and fearless but most of the people who wore mcqueen went for a “safer” choice with just a few exceptions.
i expected that sarah jessica parker wow us wearing something really bold and stunning like she has done before… she actually looked beautiful like a lot of the guests did, but i really expected a lot more from this event having the alexander mcqueen work as the inspiration, i expected some “savage beauty” in this red carpet…
congrats for your work!! i read your page every day for at least 3 years and i never post because my english isn´t very good but i really have to do it now
thanks Natalia…wow 3 years…thanks for your support.
You have see so many changes in the site. Look forward to a new change coming soon
Voted Madonna. only because Gisele was not up there.
Thanks , FC ! Your coverage was amazing.
Like everyone else, I loved your coverage and I went for Diane! From the moment I saw her, i was in awe!
But FC, who was your very favourite from last night?
Ricci by far
Of course! Mine, too
Forget about Academy Awards, Met Gala is definitely my favorite red carpet look from now on. So many great outfits in one night !
And, thanks so so so much, FC! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger event coverage , that included so many looks. you never disappoint us, do you ? x
I try not to
Love that so many of you left comments x
Where is Gisele Bundchen?? She was so perfect, the best dressed for me!!
Between Diane and Gennifer…Gennifer had to get the vote though…I mean it’s a freakin Topshop dress! And the makeup and necklace – to die for!
Ashley Olsen, hands down!
i loved ashley as well! i wish mary kate would step out of her muumuu rut and join the fun!
The only contenders for me were those on the third row, and inevitably I gave it to Liv Tyler. She looks INCREDIBLE! I love this chang eof direction, and I so wish she’d wear Givenchy more, at least moreso than stella mccartney, she pulls it off so well.
My best-dressed was Gisele but in lieu of her, I’ve gone for Diane Kruger. She looks amazing but still kept it interesting and edgy, which so many forgot!
my favorites were Liv, Diane, and Christina. Liv is just sooo beautiful, and its the first time someone really made that collection work on the red carpet, and it was fitting for the event. Diane looked awesome, but there is some de ja vu about the dressand she could have been braver at this event, the dress is a bit safe, but, still sooo gorgeous, and i would wear that dress in a heartbeat, sadly i doubt it is in my price range! Christina was perfect for this event, she really brings it at the met, my only gripe is that the bottom of the dress weighs her down, otherwise, it was great. I can’t believe some people put her on the worst dressed lists!
Ginnifer was probably my pick for best accessorized, her necklace, makeup, dress, and shoes worked perfectly together, and i really did like her dress, although i’m guessing the topshop designers were very inspired by gucci. her real downfall is that ugly chickens nest she calls hair. I’m not a fan of pixies, but you can do them right, and imo, shes doing it wrong.
i expected more from zoe, obviously she looks amazing, but really, for her, she could give us so much more. by contrast, I applaud karolina’s bravery and wish more had taken a similar approach. i loved sjp & renee’s dresses, but nothing groundbreaking there. emma just looked mumsy to me. i’m not particularly loving her look.
oh, and blake! first off, far tooooo orange to pull off the red hair, and i cannot in any way support her outfit. this is the best karl can come up with for his muse? i really disliked it. what a waste of her body and good looks! but, let me say she is working the HELL out of that bedsheet! but i must repeat what i always think when i see Blake, get a stylist already!!! i am sure a good stylist would still make sure you have a say in what you wear, they will just help you dress in the best way you can!
I’m kinda disappointed for not see Gliese, she
was so fabulous
where is jennifer lopez in Gucci.. i love that diva’s look
Diane looked the prettiest but my vote goes to Karolina… Drama n that pose!!
Christina Ricci, hands down.
Honourable mention to Diane Kruger.
Kristen Stewart wins my vote for best dressed..
Love how Christina Ricci channels Wednesday Addams-grown-up-all-feisty
for me, natalia was far and away the best dressed at the event.
Christina Ricci was the queen of the night, pun indeed.
why rihanna not?? her dress be ameizing…
