Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.
Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.
Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?
Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.
Doutzen Kroes: The model wore a Theyskens’ Theory gown sculpted from quilted leather featuring a silk-organza inner skirt, which she styled with Lynn Ban jewels.
Joan Smalls: Had Tom Ford not been present at Joan’s side, I would’ve easily mistaken her Tom Ford sheer lace gown for an Emilio Pucci one. I hope the blonde extensions are for one night only.
Linda Evangelista: I found myself totally confused by Linda’s choice for this event. Her Marchesa grey gown encrusted with crystal detailing would’ve been great had this been a medieval-themed event, but I don’t get punk from this at all. Harry Winston jewels and Rapunzel hair completed her look.
Kate Upton: The model wore a custom jade-green DVF gown with a DVF clutch and DVF for H. Stern jewels.
Hilary Rhoda: Wes Gordon was her designer of choice; she wore a gold lace top with black leather pants with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.
Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann: The model’s Prabal Gurung high-shine dual-colour gown wasn’t my favourite. Maybe it’s because it brought back some memories of Coco Rocha’s vintage Givenchy look from last year’s event. She accessorized with Chopard jewels.
Anja Rubik: Like Gisele, Anja also wore a Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 look with Chopard jewels. She was one of my favourite models, wearing a red leather mini dress with grommet detailing paired with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
Constance Jablonski: She also wore Wes Gordon, opting for something more dramatic wearing a scene-stealing metallic-gold-and-black gown with leather harness detailing. The hair and the dress are not working together.
Chanel Iman: Joining the trend to part-braid her hair, Chanel wore a striped J Mendel strapless dress with asymmetrical draped detailing.
Dree Hemingway: I love this unaffected look. Wearing a head-to-toe look from the Stella McCartney Fall 2013 collection, this is a more subtle way to work a punk look. Her long-sleeved silk dress was styled with a biker jacket, Stella McCartney wooden clutch and those platform heels from the same collection.
Karen Elson: This gold gown is everything. It would’ve been very easy for Karen to work a punk look; however, she opted for glamour, and you can’t get more glamorous than a fringed gold gown. I would’ve loved Carey Mulligan to have worn this look.
