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.

Blake Lively In Atelier Versace – 2017 Met Gala

Blake Lively was another of the evening’s guests at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

King Midas would find nothing to fault about her gilded Atelier Versace gown, which erupted at the bottom in a sea of feathery blue plumes.

It’s not the first time she’s worn feathers at the Met Gala, as in 2013, she also brought in some serious plumage.

But, aside from that, I feel like we’ve seen incarnations of this look before. Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are just two who come to mind who’ve worn bird-inspired gowns in the past.

Perhaps I’m having some feather fatigue, even though I wanted to love this body-contouring, liquid gold moment on Blake. Did it maintain its lustrous shine for you?

Kerry Washington In Michael Kors – 2017 Met Gala

Kerry Washington attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Putting the punk in patchwork, this Michael Kors quilt of many metallics had edge, elegance, and effortlessness all sewn into one gown.

Plus, with her bluntly cropped wig paying homage to Rei Kawakubo, Kerry carried through the theme from head to toe. Bravo.

Jessica Chastain In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

Before taking her seat at the judges table alongside Fan Bingbing for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in 15 days time, Jessica Chastain bestowed her regal charm on the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

Part of the Prada posse, the actress donned a pale yellow chiffon plissé off-the-shoulder Elizabethan-style gown embellished with crystal embroidery.

It’s rare that I love two Prada gowns in a row, but this is such a beautifully romantic gown that it left me in awe.

Was this one of your favourites of the night?
