Kylie Minogue In Marchesa – 2014 Met Gala

Kylie Minogue In Marchesa - 2014 Met Gala

Kylie Minogue was a guest of Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The Marchesa designers created this gorgeous ivory silk-tulle gown with a deep plunging neckline, gold threadwork and black-diamond embroidery for the Australian actress/singer, which sees her step away from her favoured Italian designers for a rare change.

Sparkling with Harry Winston jewels, Kylie completed her look with the brand’s signature quartz-clasp clutch and a voluminous bouffant.

Alexa Chung In Nina Ricci – 2014 Met Gala

Alexa Chung In Nina Ricci - 2014 Met Gala

Alexa Chung attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Surprisingly, she didn’t wear her go-to designers Christopher Kane or Erdem, selecting a Nina Ricci piece instead.

I was also surprised to see her wearing a gown because, as you know, she loves to keep it short and sweet.

The blue-grey silk-radzimir strapless gown accented with bow detailing down the front was also a rare homerun for Alexa.

While the silver embellished clutch was the perfect accessory, I can’t get on board with the black pumps with gold-studded toecaps.

I’m picturing silver sandals with this gorgeous look in my mind’s eye.

Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss – 2014 Met Gala

I was wondering if Diane Kruger was starting to lose her edge following her last red carpet look, but she dialled up the glamour for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Wearing Hugo Boss, her ice-blue fully embellished gown with Bauhaus-inspired embroidery and a pleated overlay was both magical and heavenly.

Styled with a complementary Edie Parker ‘Jean’ pearl-white clutch, she completed her look with glossy lips and smouldering eye makeup.

Cobie Smulders attended the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Wearing a head-to-toe Reed Krakoff look, the actress wore a beautiful cream dress with ripped collage gold-foil print on the skirt to give the look a subtle edge.

Styled with a gold vampire chain cuff by the designer as well as his nude patent-leather and mesh sandals, she completed the look with neutral makeup which gave her a dewy glow.

Greta Gerwig In Theory by Olivier Theyskens – 2014 Met Gala

Greta Gerwig In Theory by Olivier Theyskens - 2014 Met Gala

Greta Gerwig brought some drama to the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

She wore a custom Theory by Olivier Theyskens black and white tonal gown featuring an asymmetrical sheer yoke, a lined flutter sleeve and a rise-and-fall hemline.

It was one of my favourites of the night, on a night where going big and stepping out of your comfort zone should be the norm.

Wearing a high, tight bun, she styled her look with cat-eyes, red lips, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Sergio Rossi satin platform pumps.

J’adore from head to toe.

Amber Valletta In Saint Laurent – 2014 Met Gala

Amber Valletta In Saint Laurent - 2014 Met Gala

Amber Valletta took the menswear-inspired route for her red carpet look for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Dressed in Saint Laurent, the model/actress donned a sparkling sequined satin-lapel blazer, sans blouse, styled with slim-fit trousers.

A decorative necklace somewhat steals the show here, with black pumps, a red lip and a gold clutch completing the look.

The necklace doesn’t work here. I’m baffled by its inclusion with the sequin blazer.

Michelle Monaghan took to the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress wore a custom burgundy leather fringe V-neck Altuzarra gown featuring a side slit.

Working a deep smouldering, smoky eye, she styled her look with an opulent gold pendant necklace with ruby and green stones, a Pomellato gold and garnet ring, black strappy sandals and a gold clutch.

As much as I love this fringed dress, I’m loving that necklace more.
