Reese Witherspoon In Jason Wu – 2015 Met Gala

Reese Witherspoon In Jason Wu - 2015 Met Gala

Reese Witherspoon was one of many stars to go for a red look at the 2015 Met Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art tonight (May 4).

The star wore a structured red Jason Wu custom gown with strappy red sandals and a metallic box clutch. Her jewels were also stunning and on point.

If there is one thing I hate, it’s being disappointed by Reese. The dress is fabulous. And she totally should have worn it during her current film tour, but for tonight? Where’s the drama? Where is the theme? It just isn’t Met Gala to me.

Her center-parted hair and bronzed and smokey makeup are totally gorgeous, and are the perfect pairing with the look.

Lily Collins In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Lily Collins also made an appearance on the red carpet of tonight’s 2015 Met Gala in New York City.

The glamorous young star went highly editorial in a blouse and skirt from the Chanel Spring 2015 Couture collection and Chanel fine jewelry. While this look may be a bit more casual in nature than some of the other looks from the night, there is enough high-fashion interest to completely hold my attention.

As usual, Lily’s makeup is beyond divine, and her flawless skin and enviable brows leave me green with envy.

And while I can’t make the birdcage veil be Chinese in any way, it is completely Chanel, and I’ve never met a birdcage veil I didn’t love.

Chloe Grace Moretz In Coach – 2015 Met Gala

Chloe Grace Moretz also hit the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

The young actress wore a short, sleeveless Coach dress and Coach wristlet with some fun and well-placed jewels, including a Monique Péan bracelet.

Does Chloe look fantastic? Absolutely. Are her shoes fabulous and is the satin-ribbon-turned choker totally fun and youthful? 100%. But is this dress anywhere close to special enough for this event? I hate to say it, but no way.

I am totally into her ultra sleek and ultra long ponytail (perhaps the only thing Chinese-inspired about the look) and flawlessly glowing makeup.

Seriously, any other night, this would be a completely different story, but for tonight, it just isn’t enough for me.

Lady Gaga In Balenciaga – 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala
Lady Gaga swept onto the red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The entertainer is never one to turn down an opportunity to stand out or to embrace a good costume, and this was no exception.

Completely embodying an Eastern vibe in her custom Balenciaga design, she went the way of the kimono in the colossal, floor-length coatdress that was woven through with black feathers.

Worn over sparkling leggings with her signature, massive platforms, the capacious coat thankfully often hid the silliness of the shoes.

Adorned with Fred Leighton jewels, slightly geisha-inspired makeup, and a black crown atop her jet-black hair, the look was bold, ostentatious, and theatrical—and I fully appreciated it for exactly those reasons.

Katy Perry In Moschino – 2015 Met Gala

Katy Perry In Moschino - 2015 Met Gala

Katy Perry came to make at statement at the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4).

Wearing a Moschino gown that is surprisingly straight off the Fall 2015 runway and a spray paint can-inspired purse, Katy is definitely on theme, but that theme is all her own.

This is definitely the event to go over-the-top, but unfortunately, instead of going for that highly editorialized moment tastefully, Katy’s look is just a mess. The graffiti gloves, the various ruffles, the heavy fabric, the whole thing feels like a losing Project Runway look to me.

I do absolutely love Katy’s pixie cut, however, and really hope she keeps her hair short for a while, because it’s a fabulous and fun change-of-pace for her.

Emma Roberts In Ralph Lauren – 2015 Met Gala

Emma Roberts turned heads on the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4).

Her bright green satin custom Ralph Lauren gown is accented with a Ralph Lauren clutch and Monique Péan earrings.

The (fabulous) color and fabric of the dress (not to mention the dragon clutch) keep this look Chinese-inspired enough, and Emma is looking just so effortlessly poised and polished that I just love the look.

A sleek-but-undone updo and flawless makeup (those lashes) are really helping give Emma a total moment here, and she’s moved into a whole new zone of fashion star in my book after tonight.
