Allison Williams In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

‘Girls’ star Allison Williams attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a fluid white Diane von Furstenberg gown

For me, this gown ties in to the theme with its yin and yang nature: The whole thing has a duality I’m loving. It’s understated, yet completely statement-making. It’s fluid yet structural; it’s feminine with a touch of masculinity in the tux-inspired bustier. In short, an editorial dream!

I’m also absolutely swooning over this hair and makeup effect on Allison, since she so often goes much  more subdued than this. The over-the-top cat eye is almost campy, but stops just short of ‘going there’, and the result is something fun and daring for the actress.

What are your thoughts on Allison’s look?

Daisy Ridley In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 Met Gala

Daisy Ridley enjoyed her walk down the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) as a first timer at the annual affair.

The ‘Star Wars’ actress wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown featuring a tiered, high/low hemline with Nirav Modi jewels and ankle-strap pumps.

I love how both perfectly elegant and perfectly modern this gown is, and Daisy is the perfect person to bring it to life. It is definitely a very light take on the night’s theme, but it’s fresh and fun, and I love it.

Perhaps my favorite part about this look is that Daisy is hardly recognizable for me. I love it when stars embrace makeup for how truly transformative it can be, and that’s exactly with Daisy and her makeup artist did. That modern cat eye and the ultra sleek (and Asian-inspired) updo really change up her typical look, and it’s a lovely beauty pairing for the gown.

La La Anthony In Thai Nguyen Atelier – 2017 Met Gala

Lala Anthony took a turn on the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The television personality wore a peek-a-boo, custom Thai Nguyen Atelier gown with black diamond jewels.

While Lala’s look is definitely a striking and bold take on the night’s theme, I do worry that in a night of so much creativity and grandeur that Lala’s look will get lost in the mix.

Nevertheless, she looks stunning, and her skin is absolutely flawless.

Lily Collins In Giambattisa Valli Couture – 2017 Met Gala

Lily Collins walked the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala in New York City Monday (May 1).

The actress and fashion lover wore a two-toned Giambattisa Valli couture gown from the Fall 2016 collection.

Lily is nothing if not adventurous, and as usual, her creativity and willingness to take fashion risks has paid off. This color-blocked look is creative and eye-catching, and I’m completely smitten with the billowy skirt. Is anyone else craving cotton candy right about now?

Lily’s bob is Rei Kawakubo-inspired, tying her look into the theme, and it along with her lipstick and manicure add a fun edge to a ladylike gown. 

I love how Lily somehow always manages to look supremely feminine, even while wearing black lipstick!

So let’s hear it: Are you as fond of this look as I am?

Gisele Bundchen In Stella McCartney – 2017 Met Gala

Gisele Bundchen was one of the first to walk the blue carpet at this year’s 2017 Met Gala is New York City on Monday (May 1).

The supermodel wore a long-sleeved, silver, custom Stella McCartney for the Green Carpet Challenge gown.

The theme for this year’s Gala is avant garde, and as usual, it is interesting to see who takes the theme literally, and who basically ignores it completely.

While Gisele certainly seems to be in the latter category this year, you can’t fault her with a gown this stunning. It is equals part sophisticated and sexy, and the beautifully toned body that made her famous is accented perfectly.

And if the gown is all about her body, her messy ponytail and dewy skin show off that playful, life-loving side to Gisele we all love so much.

In short, this look is the essence of Gisele, and I’m not mad about it one bit.

Jessica Biel In Ralph Lauren Collection – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Jessica Biel attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection gown.

While her Kaufmanfranco gown was stunning, I must say, I’m loving this gown even more.

The skin-baring cut-outs in the front, juxtaposed with the ultra long, dramatic cape is such a fabulous fashion moment, and I’m eating it up.

Which of Jessica Biel’s two look do you prefer?
