    Emma, Adele, Beyonce and Rachel are on the list and SJP is not???

    • Burcu A May 6, 2014 at 22:15 #

      She is on the list too but Jsssica Alba is missing

      • Mar May 7, 2014 at 06:19 #

        Sorry, I didnt see her at first.

  2. Catherine May 6, 2014 at 21:20 #

    FC, thank you so much for your amazing coverage as always! Personally, Charlize in Dior Haute Couture was my best dressed! Also, did you see Sarah Silverman? For once she looked amazing and well put-together in a beautiful Zac Posen gown! So glad her red carpet style finally matches her amazing talent!

  3. a May 6, 2014 at 21:23 #

    Where are SJP and Selena ???????????

  4. Jori Marcus May 6, 2014 at 21:24 #

    Why not Leighton?! Love all the other choices though, this is going to be a hard one!!!

    • Cascia May 7, 2014 at 20:50 #

      Leighton is on the list too

  5. Yeliz May 6, 2014 at 21:32 #

    I’ve loved a lot of looks at the Met Gala this year, but the most memorable ones are these for me;

    1. Karolina Kurkova
    2. Charlize Theron
    3. Arizona Muse
    4. Diane Kruger
    5. Blake Lively

    Still can’t stop looking at Karolina and Charlize’s breathtaking looks. The other three also blew me away.
    And of course, thanks for the amazing coverage Catherine and the RCFA team!

    • Jori May 7, 2014 at 01:36 #

      Agreed! This coverage and your blurbs have been SPOT on. LOVING the push notifications as well!

  6. Marcel May 6, 2014 at 21:33 #

    How that Prada experiment on fashion can be included in the best dress category ?
    And SJP is out…I despair, really.

  7. Moxie May 6, 2014 at 21:35 #

    1) Karolina Kurkova
    2) Arizona Muse
    3) Blake Lively

  8. sara May 6, 2014 at 21:37 #

    I agree with all of these except Beyonce, Rachel McAdams and Claire Danes. Top 3 and Blake were definitely the best, there needs to be some drama to a costume gala! I cant wait to see your coverage of the Vanity Fair party- I was loving some of the looks including Diane Kruger

  9. ramsay May 6, 2014 at 21:45 #

    I am very surprised by these results
    I did expect Karolina to be high up – but did not expect all this love for Blake
    Certainly expected more people to agree with me on Charlize (for me she is head and shoulders above the rest – just classier more restrained)
    And yes Sarah Jessica Parker should be in this poll
    After all she looked great – and she is the one who worked the theme best

  10. Emma White May 6, 2014 at 21:46 #

    Where are SJP?Selena Gomez? Rihanna?

  11. Christine May 6, 2014 at 21:58 #

    Karolina HANDS DOWN! No contest.

  12. Nat39 May 6, 2014 at 22:01 #

    Karolina, hands down. Magnificent in her spectacularly constructed gown, she delivered exactly the kind of memorable, iconic drama one expects to see at the Met Gala. And Blake Lively – absolutely gorgeous but missing that special, exceptional drama that would make it just as distinctive and memorable. Also picture-perfect Dianne and Arizona.

  13. Patricia May 6, 2014 at 22:01 #

    Beyoncé here? REALLY?

    Best dressed Arizona Muse no doubt.

  14. Carrie May 6, 2014 at 22:13 #

    Karolina Kurkova! Hands down.

  15. Marybeth May 6, 2014 at 22:27 #

    Karolina Kurkova is easily my favorite — perfectly on-theme, dramatic, and stunning!
    Blake Lively’s old-Hollywood, glamourous look is my runner-up.
    I also loved the other two big-gown ladies on the top row, Liu Wen and especially Arizona Muse.

    There were some great looks, some disappointments, and some downright horrors last night. Interesting, to say the least!

  16. Sammy C May 6, 2014 at 22:31 #

    1. SJP
    2. Karen Elson
    3. Karolina Kurkova
    4. Olsen Twins
    5. Arizona Muse
    6. Suki Waterhouse
    7. Beyonce
    8. Adele Exarchopoulos
    9. Blake Lively
    10. Diane Kruger

  17. Sammy C May 6, 2014 at 22:31 #

  18. Aura B May 6, 2014 at 22:35 #

    Where is Dita V.T.??? She looked amazing!!

  19. shap_half May 6, 2014 at 22:35 #

    Karolina made my head spin when I saw her outfit. She looks sensational.

    I also loved Diane Kruger, SJP and Charlize.

    I wish that Anna Kendrick and Kate Mara also made the list as they both looked sensational.

  20. CreoleLady May 6, 2014 at 22:39 #

    Karolina Kurkova ftw going away.

  21. Clara May 6, 2014 at 22:41 #

    They’re not in this list but Taylor, Karlie ans Suki were my personal favorites. Anyway I’m voting KK because she was just perfection, from head to toe, not a single mistake.

  22. Lena May 6, 2014 at 22:49 #

    Karolina, definitely. Theme appropriate, event appropriate and she looks stunning. No one else even comes close.

    • Jeremy May 7, 2014 at 06:53 #

      Agree 100%

  23. Katey May 6, 2014 at 22:53 #

    i’m shocked! are there people in the world who likes SJP’s look???
    In my opinion she looks ridiculous. That hair style is awful and that gloves and the dress….i have no words how terrible those are.

    • Dean May 7, 2014 at 14:32 #

      ITA I can’t believe people like her look, really badly put together. Voted for Karolina! Loved Charlize as well.

  24. Joy May 6, 2014 at 22:55 #

    Catherine, thank you for all your hard work. Your comments are always kind & generous, you are one classy lady. :) This was such fun, I always feel sorta like Bridget Jones as I’m sitting on my coach in my jammies nit picking at these gorgeous women and these beautiful creations. Thank you for making my guilty pleasure so fun.

    My favorites of the night;

    1. Karolina Kurkova
    2. Beyonce
    3. Marion Cotillard
    4. Blake Lively
    5. Charlize Theron
    6. Emma Stone

  25. ram May 6, 2014 at 22:56 #

    oh my god so reliev… i kepp thinking that KK stand for KimKardashian …i was like whattttt????haha kurkova was a godess!!! and well..then there was all that “prada experiment”… o well it would be a litlle it boring without them hahaha

    great gala!!!! lova from argentina!!!

  26. d May 6, 2014 at 22:57 #

    where is toni garrn? kendall? fei fei sun?lauren santo domingo?

  27. Katey May 6, 2014 at 23:04 #

    My fav is Sarah Paulson In Prada. I think she’s better than Adele “idontknowherlastname”.

    • dee May 6, 2014 at 23:59 #

      I really liked her look too.

  28. Brielle May 6, 2014 at 23:50 #

    Really, no Dita??

  29. dee May 6, 2014 at 23:58 #

    Favorites are Karolina, Arizona and Charlize.

  30. Valissa May 7, 2014 at 00:03 #

    Just like every year the MET Gala delivered red carpet moments that were amazing, experimental, boring or just downright ugly! I really do love this event for the variety we get!
    This year was no different! My personal favorites are (judging the stand alone look….not how theme or event appropriate it is):

    Blake lively
    Charlize Theron
    Arizona Muse
    Chanel Iman
    Rosie Huntington Whitely

    I ultimately voted for Blake for her gorgeous dress, beautiful hair and amazing presence!

    • Valissa May 7, 2014 at 01:46 #

      I forgot Florence, Mary-Kate Olsen and Tabitha Simmons (in that amazing Dolce & Gabbana creation!)
      None are on this list but I still thought they deserved an honorable mention.
      I know some people won’t agree, but I think it was a successful year!

      Thanks the extensive and amazing coverage FC!

  31. Teleholic May 7, 2014 at 00:08 #

    I can’t choose between Blake, Karolina, Liu Wen, and Arizona. They knocked it out of the ball park for me.

    Emma Stone, Beyonce, and Leighton Meester deserve honorable mentions.

    I ultimately went with Arizona for giving us sleek, Old Hollywood at its finest, though Karolina and Liu Wen were close. And Blake, just wow, what an improvement.

  32. chryssa May 7, 2014 at 00:22 #

    None of my favorites are in this poll..Giovanna Battaglia was best dressed for me, followed by Diane Argon, Gisele and Florence.I voted for Liu Wen.

  33. Mandy May 7, 2014 at 00:30 #

    Thank you for your coverage FC. It’s a shame I found more WDOTY contenders than BDOTY ones, but Karolina and Blake will be making it.

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2014 at 11:17 #

      LOL…there were some duds this year…Prada I’m looking at you 😀

  34. brat May 7, 2014 at 00:53 #

    Blake, Charlize, Karolina, Emmy, Diane…..why is Beyonce and SJP on this list? Katey I agree. Words can’t describe how awful…

    Zoe wasn’t as glamourous as the rest but I adore her look. I thought it fierce and edgy. Beyonce should be removed and replaced with Rihanna.

  35. Christy May 7, 2014 at 02:10 #

    1) Karolina Kurkova
    2) Charlize Theron
    3) Liu Wen

  36. Prudence May 7, 2014 at 02:31 #

    The only deserving people on the list are the first 3. Mind blown that Beyonce was included in here.ADELE TOO!! She was one of the worst of the night. Nobody can touch KK. She destroyed everyone else that night, there is no contest.

  37. TL May 7, 2014 at 02:58 #

    Karolina Kurkova and Arizona Muse tie for my favorite, followed by Diane Kruger, Blake Lively and Emma Stone.

    I also love Karlie Kloss’s look.

  38. Kimma May 7, 2014 at 03:28 #

    Karolina was living, breathing art – no one could touch her. For something mere mortals could at least aspire to I loved Blake and Arizona.

  39. Saumya May 7, 2014 at 04:10 #

    I really like Arizona Muse’s red gown. Its so fairy-tale like. But whatever happened to Jennifer Lawrence? I thought she was confirmed to attend the Met Gala? I was so looking forward to seeing what Dior gown she would wear.

  40. Regina May 7, 2014 at 04:28 #

    My vote goes to Blake. Divine!
    But i missed Maggie Q, she was amazing and Monica Bellucci((

    • François Bresmal May 7, 2014 at 09:00 #

      YESSSSSSSSSSSSS I just saw Monica on style.com didn’t know she was there and she was WOOOOOW in the Dolce cape! How comes that she’s not here FC? 😀

  41. Alina May 7, 2014 at 04:52 #

    1. Emma Stone & Karolina Kurkova (I can’t choose; they’re so different!)
    2. Amy Adams & Blake Lively (High octane glamour.)
    3. Arizona Muse & Charlize Theron (Love them equally, just in different ways.)

    I also really liked Leighton Meester and Diane Kruger’s looks.

    FC, I was wondering if there was a reason why we didn’t see any Elie Saab and Versace on the red carpet.

    Thank you, FC and the RCFA team, for an amazing coverage! As always, I can’t wait to see FC’s awards.

  42. justme May 7, 2014 at 05:23 #

    I voted for Arizona Muse. It’s a shame that she isn’t a big name. She definitely would have gotten more votes. Her red dress is pure perfection and fits the theme.

    I’m not mad that Karolina is winning though. She looked exquisite. That Marchesa gown is a work of art and she pulled it off effortlessly.

    The people you put in the poll had tons of positive comments so I’m a bit surprised by the complaints. I may not like their outfits but other people did so… yeah lol.

    Thanks for the coverage, Catherine. You rock ^^

  43. Nat May 7, 2014 at 05:28 #

    Wheres Dita Von Teese??

  44. Jeremy May 7, 2014 at 07:18 #

    Karolina Kurkova took my breath away.

    Perfection from head-to-toe. Genuinely STUNNING.

    I believe this is a moment that we will all remember come time to decide BDOTY.

  45. dressaddict May 7, 2014 at 07:59 #

    SJP and Karolina are my favourite!

    But there was another dress that blew me away and I’m sure that FC would agree, it was Tabitha Simmons in Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda.

  46. Viral May 7, 2014 at 08:09 #

    FC – you really need to have a razzies category too! like the worst dressed – it would be just as much fun!

    and yeah no one could touch KK! she won hands down – I do think that Emma Stone was a breath of fresh air and came in second for me! the rest are all playing second fiddle to KK ( in the gowns category) or Emma ( non-gown category)

    and if there were a worst dressed – SJP would win ( each and every year – she really needs to get the whole carrie bradshaw thing out of her head)

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2014 at 10:16 #

      Funny you should say that, I had that in mind.

      Great minds think a like

  47. François Bresmal May 7, 2014 at 08:50 #

    I’m surprised to see that no one even talks about Emmy. Besides looking very beautiful, she was very much in the theme (she always is), she was standing out with the strong colors & the dress was just bold enough for the Met Gala! But yes, Karolina will be the memorable one here, looking beautiful, theme-appropriate and VERY Met-Ball-Bold

    • François Bresmal May 7, 2014 at 08:53 #

      Oh and FC, just a funny thing : I dreamed about you last night, you were launching a book and God knows why you were calling me to write a page or two in your book hahaha

      • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2014 at 10:15 #

        lol…that it random, but sweet. I’m glad it wasn’t a nightmare.

  48. Sharareh May 7, 2014 at 09:40 #

    Uuuh this is hard to decide. Blake Lively, Beyonce, Emma Stone, Arizona Muse and Liu Wen are equally my number ones. But as in life you have to make choices… I opted for Blake.
    I’m wondering that SJP is on this list, it looks just… sad?!

  49. amy May 7, 2014 at 09:40 #

    KK wins hands down for not playing it safe and sticking to the theme. she killed it!
    far runner-ups: Charlize (so elegant),Arizona (a vision), Diane (smooth) and Blake (very glamorous).
    I do have to say this year was less interesting fashion wise.

  50. Fanny May 7, 2014 at 10:35 #

    You just forgot Dita in Zac Posen !!!

  51. Jess2 May 7, 2014 at 13:14 #

    Karolina shut it down!! My favourite of the night but closely followed by Blake, Arizona and Charlize. There were some spectacular looks and I certainly have a soft spot for all out glamour!

    Thank you Catherine for such amazing coverage, so many people to include. You are a super star :) x

  52. principessacate May 7, 2014 at 13:26 #

    Karolina for upholding the theme of the event but definitely followed by Coco Brandolini in D&G Alta Moda! The D&G dress with her necklace is stunning.

  53. principessacate May 7, 2014 at 13:29 #

    Zac Posen did such an amazing job overall though between his five (+?) dresses! Even Maggie Q, the one that shone the least, was still to die for. Thank you so much for posting so much for the best event of the year Catherine!

  54. Kathy May 7, 2014 at 14:20 #

    My picks:
    1. Karolina Kurkova & Emmy Rossum
    2. Taylor Swift
    3. Blake Lively & Karen Elson
    4. Charlize Theron
    5. Diane Kruger

  55. Violet May 7, 2014 at 14:41 #

    No Florence Welch, really???

  56. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2014 at 19:15 #

    Wow, though I had many disappointments there were quite a few beautiful, ontheme looks here!!!
    My best of the night were:
    1. Karolina Kurkova
    2. Liu Wen
    3. Taylor Swift
    4. Emmy Rossum
    5. Arizona Muse
    6. Karlie Kloss
    7. Charlize Theron
    8. Bee Shaffer
    9. Fei Fei (from Model’s post)
    10. Allison Williams
    Honorable mention for Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zooey Deschanel, and Diane Kruger.
    Also loved that Blake Lively and Amy Adams were ontheme.
    For the men, Benedict Cumberbatch, Douglas Booth, and Eddie Redmayne were my favorites.
    And Prada is forever in my “Burn Book” 😀

    To FC and all bloggers–THANK YOU for this lovely treat. The coverage was prompt, comprehensive, and altogether amazing. I always know where I can go for my fashion fix!!! Kudos to all of you–can’t wait for Cannes! :)

  57. Phillippa Duncan May 7, 2014 at 19:37 #

    Erm…SJP is missing as is Dita in that completely amazeballs Zac Posen gown???

  58. lise May 8, 2014 at 01:47 #

    i seem to be the only one obsessed with katie holmes’ look and am so sad to not see it here. i also seem to be the only struggling to find anything interesting about blake lively’s look? her own gorgeousness aside, that dress might as well have been worn by like 10 years ago by one of the non-beyonce members of destiny’s child.

  59. Jen May 8, 2014 at 04:06 #

    Janelle Monae!!!!

  60. Andi May 8, 2014 at 14:32 #

    What about Monica Bellucci? She looked great at this event!!!

  61. alvaro_spain May 8, 2014 at 22:18 #

    Liu Wen hands down!
    P.S: We are waiting your round-up!

  62. 2011 May 8, 2014 at 23:45 #

    Beyonce Givenchy Haute Couture may not fit the theme of Charles James, but something about it, the drama, the mistery, is really bewitching I can not take my eyes off it.It is couture as only the French can do.
