Olivia Munn In J. Mendel – 2015 Met Gala

Olivia Munn In J Mendel - 2015 Met Gala

Olivia Munn made a high drama statement on the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4).

The actress wore an intricately pleated J. Mendel gown with drape-away sleeves and bold colors, and while Olivia often has an appealing ‘everygirl’ quality about her, that is nowhere to be found tonight. She looks as glamorous as I’ve ever seen her, and I love every aspect of it.

Despite how much is going on with the draping and color-fading of the dress, Olivia continued to editorialize the look with huge diamond jewels and red and black nail art, and while it was a risk, I think that risk totally paid off.

Word on the street is that Olivia was invited to sit at Anna Wintour’s head table tonight, and hopefully she’ll make as good of an impression on the Anna as she has on me.

Kate Hudson In Michael Kors – 2015 Met Gala

Kate Hudson In Michael Kors - 2015 Met Gala

Kate Hudson made a shimmery turn on the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Her custom Michael Kors gown is intrinsically Chinese in shape, and the gold leaf overlay creates a glamorous, gilded effect.

I’m not going to lie, from far away, I was very disappointed in this look, but once I saw the gown up-close, I was immediately swayed. Kate literally looks like she is dripping in gold, and the gown, though understated, could be a museum-piece.

I am take it or leave it with the loose updo and beaded hairpiece, but her glowing makeup, flawless brows and matte raspberry lipstick are stunning.

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela – 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4) arm in arm with her dashing husband George Clooney.

Her strapless red Maison Margiela ‘Artisanal’ gown is clearly made for her body (that tiny waist!) and she looks every bit the part of high fashion goddess that she has earned since coming into the spotlight with George.

At first I questioned how this dress fit into the Chinese theme of the night, but when I realized how Chinese-military inspired the bodice was, I just swooned. I love that Amal and the gown went a completely different direction with the theme, and the intricacies in the construction are riveting.

While I might have liked to see Amal go for a major hair departure with some kind of striking updo, with hair that perfect, I guess you just really want to show it off. All in all, a total win for Mrs. Clooney in my book.

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Amanda Seyfried also attended the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

The white, halter-neck Givenchy Couture gown is an absolute work of art, and one that Amanda wears flawlessly.

The effect of the floral appliqués almost looks like cut paper to me, it is so delicate and intricate in nature. The multi-layered high/low hemline is unexpected for this type of gown, and while at first I thought it detracted from the design, the more I look at it, the more I agree that it does elevate the entire concept.

Stunning earrings, a deep berry lipstick, sleek updo and enviable posture finish off a lovely look. I’m a bit distracted by what appear to be too-stark-white shoes, but I still give Amanda very high marks for this look.

Rachel Weisz In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Rachel Weisz In Chanel Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Rachel Weisz looked lovely as she walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Donning a silver Chanel Couture gown with delicate grey beading, Rachel looks like a porcelain doll. But, dare I say it, the gown is completely underwhelming! The runway version has so much more editorial appeal, but this strapless iteration is much too dull for such an occasion.

Flawless skin, a matte red lip and matching mani/pedi, old Hollywood waves and a slightly smokey eye finish the look.
