Lily James In Burberry – 2017 Met Gala

Lily James did a good job of projecting her signature style while injecting a darker, mysterious edge at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

Her Burberry gown was another look which wowed from every angle; from the structure of the bodice and the sharp exaggerated hips to the architectural black bow at the back.

I really love the elegance of the look, but it’s the edgier makeup, slicked back hair and choker adding a twist to a classic look which really sells this look to me.

Solange Knowles In Thom Browne – 2017 Met Gala

Solange Knowles was one of many I was looking forward to seeing at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

Some might see a singer in a puffy coat with a train, I see a woman wearing Thom Browne who interpreted the theme correctly sans all the bells and whistles we saw in Rihanna’s look.

Solange brand of avant-garde dressing was cool and measured with a quiet rebellious spirit.

I’m going to give her extra points for her own interpretation of Rei Kawakubo’s blunt bob.

The look was styled with a Mark Cross bag.

Leslie Mann In Chanel Couture – 2017 Met Gala

Leslie Mann attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) .

Not everyone stuck to the theme, but at least I could hang onto one intriguing element or be swept away by the romance of the look like Elle Fanning.

Unfortunately I was totally underwhelmed by this Chanel Spring 2016 Couture look. Bored to be more precise.

Leslie has had many magic red carpet moments, yet this wasn’t one of them.

Thandie Newton In Monse – 2017 Met Gala

Thandie Newton was on trend wearing a red custom Monse gown for the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The British actress dazzled in her Swarovski crystal decked gown. It was show stopping from every angle with the floral headdress helping this look stay on theme.

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get on board with the heavy handed eye makeup.

Haley Bennett In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Couture – 2017 Met Gala

While we may have called out many a star for not exactly embracing the 2017 Met Gala’s avant-garde theme in honour of designer Rei Kawakubo, Haley Bennett will not be part of the guilty party judging by her look of the evening.

As she took to the red carpet on Monday (May 1) in New York City, she brought nothing short of an eccentric flower shop in tow.

Not content to only have an array of blooms embellished across her Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Couture period-style, lace gown, she wore an entire bouquet of faux florals atop her head.

While I want to applaud her for taking a bold fashion risk, there were several elements that were working against her thematic efforts.

The garish makeup being one; and her curled locks that had an ageing effect, being another. I probably would have lopped off the loose doily sleeves, too, to help restore the youthfulness to the look.

Kate Hudson & Naomi Watts In Stella McCartney – 2017 Met Gala

Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts were the yin and yang of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Both dressed in Stella McCartney, they certainly took the prize for minimalist-chic, cool-girl looks of the night.

Kate Hudson: Her asymmetric white gown captured my affection for its sleek silhouette juxtaposed against the robe-like sleeve. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but it fit her like a dream and her powdered, platinum updo added just the right thematic finish.

Naomi Watts: She played the sophisticated-sultry siren in this mesh-laced black gown, styled with an on-trend wavy bob for a girl-meets-glam statement—with an edge.
