2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Bee Shaffer In Dolce & Gabbana and Anna Wintour In John Galliano for Maison Margiela – 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

With London Fashion Week and the Oscars clashing for the first time, Anna picked fashion’s biggest night, missing the Burberry Prorsum show for the first time.

Bee Shaffer: Sticking to her favourite Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, Bee usually does a big ball gown but this floral-print was striking enough with a rich mix of contrasting hues.

Anna Wintour: The editor-in-chief of American Vogue wore a beautiful lavender fog haute couture gown created especially for her by John Galliano for Maison Margiela. She has been a great supporter of the designer before and during his comeback and he repays the favour in this beautifully feminine exquisite creation.

Bee Shaffer In Alexander McQueen & Anna Wintour In John Galliano for Maison Martin Margiela

Bee Shaffer and Anna Wintour were every bit the voguish mother-daughter duo on the red carpet of the 2014 British Fashion Awards, hosted on Monday (December 1) at the London Coliseum in London, England.

Bee Shaffer: She paid homage to the label that won the evening’s Red Carpet Designer nod with her Alexander McQueen Spring 2015 metallic gold frock. Featuring a harness-inspired bodice and A-line skirt, the dress meshed its Midas touch with a power-warrior spirit and feminine edge, especially when styled with that super-sleek ponytail.

Anna Wintour: Coordinating but not matching her daughter, Anna donned a John Galliano for Maison Martin Margiela floor-length, printed black gown and furry ivory shrug as she picked up the Outstanding Achievement Award from the designer himself.

Perhaps both sets of sandals could have been improved upon, but I’ll focus on the ankles up. Like mother, like daughter?

God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards Gala

God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards Gala

Here is a look at the rest of the ladies who joined Blake Lively on the red carpet for the 2014 God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards hosted by Michael Kors at Spring Studios on Thursday (October 16) in New York City.

Anna Wintour: The editor-in-chief of American Vogue was honoured at the event with the Outstanding Community Service Award. Wearing a very familiar silhouette, Anna wore an indigo sheath dress with lilac embroidery from the Spring 2015 collection, which she of course styled with her favourite Manolo Blahnik kitten heels and beaded necklace.

Halle Berry: Anna was stood alongside Halle Berry, who looks as gorgeous as ever showing off her body in an optic-white and indigo-trimmed dress from the Michael Kors Spring 2015 collection. I’m so very glad that she didn’t opt for her favoured black on this occasion. While I usually prefer Halle with a pixie cut, I’m loving this new highlighted bob style on her.

Jaime King: Having worn a blooming frock the day before, Jaime selected a sultry daffodil-hued cut-out dress from the Michael Kors Spring 2015 collection. Achingly cool, ultra-modern and stylish, as we would expect from Jaime, the look was accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, gold python ‘Doris’ sandals and a gold python ‘Leyla’ clutch from the same collection.

Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture - 2014 Met Gala

As the host of tonight’s proceedings, Anna Wintour was the first to take to the red carpet for the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

As expected, she wore Chanel Couture, selecting a Fall 2013 organza gown with black, pink and white appliqués featuring a sheer yoke.

Aside from the removal of the black belt, there were no modifications to be had on this occasion, but she did switch things up in both the footwear and jewels department for a refreshing change.
