Diane Kruger In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

Diane Kruger attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress and fashion lover wore a custom Prada gown accented with a gold bracelet and baby blue clutch.

Avant garde? No. Completely dramatic in its own rite? Most definitely. The gold beaded designs are really beautiful and whilst you cannot see it here, the back is sans beading and has a really fabulous draped detail.

I’m absolutely crazy about her choice of carrying a seemingly unrelated light blue clutch, and her makeup is perfection. Her radiant skin, light pink lips and flushed cheeks have her looking half her age.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a Louis Vuitton dress with black boots and dramatic waterfall earrings.

Is this the point in the night where I start yelling ‘this isn’t avant garde’? Because this dress is really fabulous and fun for a hundred different occasions, but it’s simple too, well, simple for me to get on board with it for tonight’s grand affair.

While I feel the dress miss the night’s mark, those earrings, her red eyeshadow and super sleeked back hair are fabulous, and really causing me to question what fountain of youth Jennifer must have found!

So what do you think? Was this dress a good choice for tonight, or no?

Kate Bosworth In Tory Burch – 2017 Met Gala

Kate Bosworth dialed up the fashion drama at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

She actress wore a black Tory Burch gown with plenty of volume and structural elements.

I am typically obsessed with Kate’s style choices, but this one, I can’t get 100% behind. While I’m fairly certain there are some pretty cool design elements at work with this dress, the fabric and color simply don’t translate well to images, and I honestly can’t tell.

And while having a moment in-person is of course important, how a gown photographs is equally as important, and this reads quite flat–even in the face of so much apparent texture.

As for her beauty styling, no one pulls off a completely sleeked back bun quite like Kate, and her radiant skin, coral eyeshadow and bold raspberry lips are a dream–and the perfect look for a black gown.

Julianne Moore In Calvin Klein By Appointment – 2017 Met Gala

Julianne Moore went for a playful look at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a dreamy, feathery Calvin Klein by Appointment gown with dramatic ‘winged’, white peep-toe sandals.

Julianne is always one of my favorite at any big red carpet event, and tonight is no different. I love that her dress is short in a sea of long-hem drama, and those feathers? I mean, they bring a burst of energy to the carpet, and that is no small fete on a night as chock full of artistic expression as tonight.

The color story is also truly inspired, and while I’m not always on board with matching, those tear-drop earrings in the same red and yellow tones are the perfect final touch to this look.

Are you adoring Ms. Moore as much as I?

Zoe Kravitz In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 Met Gala

Zoe Kravitz attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a two-tone Oscar de la Renta gown with diamond jewel to accent it.

This gown has so many fabulous elements, and I’m just sitting here eating them all up! The blush pink and black combination is forever classic and forever perfect. The draping of the satin that gives us both a cape and train effect at once is fashion genius, and the billowy, feathered detailing is over-the-top gorgeous.

And then can we say blonde pixie? Of all the stars who have cut off and dyed their hair this way, I have to say, Zoe seems to embody the style. She looks simultaneously edgy and gorgeous, and I hope she keeps it this way for a while.

Dakota Johnson In Gucci – 2017 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson went for the drama on the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a dramatic Gucci gown with cut-out detailing and ruffle rosettes galore.

This one took me a minute, you guys. My first reaction was rather ‘meh’, but this one really grew on me. The double strap around the waist and chest is very viscerally appealing, and from a design standpoint, it’s really cool that the same straps are working to hold together the bodice and serve as sleeves.

And now those rosettes. While they are almost heavy-handed at certain angles, they’re also completely striking from others.

Her rosy cheeks and matte mauve lips (a huge makeup trend for the night) are fresh and lovely.

So weigh in: What do you think of this look?
