Riley Keough In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Riley Keough hit the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a zipper-front Louis Vuitton sequin column gown with a few delicate rings and striking boots.

Riley’s styling here is impeccable. The idea of wearing booties with this look is downright inspired. The military inspired stripes and cords, along with the asymmetry in the print and belt is all so hard-edged and it’s a real delight. Very offbeat, and as a result, so much fashion fun.

I also love Riley’s simplistic makeup. It would have been very easy to ramp up her beauty look to go along with this dress, but by keeping things glowy and soft, a real story is being told.

Alexa Chung In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

Alexa Chung attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The fashion influencer wore a Diane von Furstenberg gown with Monique Péan jewelry.

This gown is so much fun with it’s tiny dotted print. It also fits like a dream, and is really Alexa’s signature style come to life in one dress.

All that said, at an occasion such as the Met Gala, this definitely get lost amid the drama and risks. Which I hate, because it’s a absolutely gorgeous gown, and Alexa looks fabulous!

I also would have loved to see Alexa step outside her hair comfort zone and lose her signature messy lob for something more daring–and perhaps even theme-appropriate?–for tonight.

Kylie Jenner In Atelier Versace – 2017 Met Gala

Kylie Jenner made quite a scene at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The gown, which is already being dubbed ‘the Naked Gown’ by the press, is a one-of-a-kind Atelier Versace creation. The Kardashian sister paired the stunning gown with carefully placed Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

This gown really is a work of art. With the intricate beading, the beaded fringe and the sequined appliqués, this gown under many other hands would flounder into a too-busy mess, but be keeping things in the neutral family, Verasce has created a work of art.

And while I certainly mean no offense to Kylie’s perfect makeup and striking Donetella-esque hair color and bob, it almost doesn’t even matter–can anyone take their eyes off that gown?

Lena Dunham In Elizabeth Kennedy – 2017 Met Gala

Lena Dunham struck a pose on the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The writer and actress wore a dramatic Elizabeth Kennedy gown with vintage-inspired diamond jewelry.

I’m lost as to what the connection this tartan-esque look has with the theme, but I’m still into it. Which, if you know me, and my very discontent relationship with Lena’s fashion choices, is a huge shock! The gown is fun, dramatic and Lena carries it off well.

Of course, my praise stops there. Lena’s boring kohl-rimmed eyes looks more emo-teen than high fashion, and her updo is just plain sloppy.

Emma Roberts In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

Emma Roberts turned the blue carpet red at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a red Diane von Furstenberg gown with an accompanying pink DVF stole, red and pink handbag and Monique Péan jewels.

Let’s start with the good, shall we? The classic silhouette and color and impeccable fit of the gown are stunning. I’m delicate lace accents at the straps and hemline are also simply superb. However, I’m afraid the pink stole and the pearl handled bag are just too much together and officially make Emma look like a Barbie. You can’t unsee it now, can you?

I’ve always loved what a hair color chameleon Emma is, and brunette may be my favorite color for her. I also love the choice of the mauve matte lipstick with a red gown.

I can’t wait to hear though–is it just me, or does she look like Met Gala Barbie?

Mindy Kaling In Prabal Gurung – 2017 Met Gala

Mindy Kaling attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The multi-talented star wore a Prabal Gurung gown with Monique Péan jewels.

I simply love Mindy, and her colorful, exuberant approach to fashion, which is why I am beyond disappointed in this gown. It isn’t anything but fresh. I mean, we’ve seen variations of this at least a thousand times, right? A fact that is exaggerated by the fact that the shape is completely unflattering on Mindy.

I take that back–I actually love the neckline, and it is graceful and looks lovely across Mindy’s décolleté, but from the bust down, this completely disappoints for me.

Am I missing something? Are you guys a fan of this look?
