Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4) arm in arm with her dashing husband George Clooney.

Her strapless red Maison Margiela Couture gown is clearly made for her body (that tiny waist!) and she looks every bit the part of high fashion goddess that she has earned since coming into the spotlight with George.

At first I questioned how this dress fit into the Chinese theme of the night, but when I realized how Chinese-military inspired the bodice was, I just swooned. I love that Amal and the gown went a completely different direction with the theme, and the intricacies in the construction are riveting.

While I might have liked to see Amal go for a major hair departure with some kind of striking updo, with hair that perfect, I guess you just really want to show it off. All in all, a total win for Mrs. Clooney in my book.

Dakota Johnson In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson In Chanel Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Flaunting her newly shorn bob, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ actress mirrored a glitzy disco ball in her Chanel Fall 2013 Couture sculpted, embellished minidress, which bore little resemblance to its original runway entrance.

She styled the frock with Chanel Fine Jewelry earrings and the Chanel limited edition Matryoshka bag from the Paris-Moscow Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I think she may have shown up to the wrong party.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 2015 Met Gala

Jennifer Connelly was also in the mix at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Naturally, she was dressed in a custom Louis Vuitton gown. But, unfortunately, I only had the experience of déjà vu upon seeing this look.

While the architectural detailing and the explosion of lace were striking, this was merely a gown version of the short dresses we’ve previously seen, including a very similar silhouette at the recent Tribeca Film Festival.

The addition of the ear cuff does nothing to elevate the look either. Would you agree?

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Amanda Seyfried also attended the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

The white, halter-neck Givenchy Couture gown is an absolute work of art, and one that Amanda wears flawlessly.

The effect of the floral appliqués almost looks like cut paper to me, it is so delicate and intricate in nature. The multi-layered high/low hemline is unexpected for this type of gown, and while at first I thought it detracted from the design, the more I look at it, the more I agree that it does elevate the entire concept.

Stunning earrings, a deep berry lipstick, sleek updo and enviable posture finish off a lovely look. I’m a bit distracted by what appear to be too-stark-white shoes, but I still give Amanda very high marks for this look.

Keri Russell attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The actress alighted in a custom Altuzarra side-slit gown embellished with emerald and iridescent blue feathers.

Adding a touch of minimal sparkle were Ana Khouri earrings and a Solange Azagury-Partridge ring.

A super-smoky eye completed her goth siren look.

Rachel Weisz In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Rachel Weisz looked lovely as she walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Donning a silver Chanel Couture gown with delicate grey beading, Rachel looks like a porcelain doll. But, dare I say it, the gown is completely underwhelming! The runway version has so much more editorial appeal, but this strapless iteration is much too dull for such an occasion.

Flawless skin, a matte red lip and matching mani/pedi, old Hollywood waves and a slightly smokey eye finish the look.
