Emmy Rossum In Carolina Herrera – 2017 Met Gala

Emmy Rossum was also in attendance at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Leave it to Emmy to bring the ultimate sense of mod yet refined elegance to the proceedings with this Carolina Herrera masterpiece.

I love how the whoosh of the extravagant flourish and train at the side elevated the minimalist spirit of the fusion look. From one side, it was a flowing white gown; from the other, a study in menswear-chic tailoring.

All together, it was a sleekly sophisticated moment with Emmy’s low bun, sparkling jewels, and red lip only adding to the perfect style equation.

Miranda Kerr In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 Met Gala

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

I was completely charmed by the supermodel’s Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 gown, which I imagine she spent much of the night twirling around in.

Lovely and ladylike, the embroidered dress had a distinct vintage sensibility, which Miranda likewise embraced in her retro bun and red lip.

But it was the bouncy, voluminously sculpted proportions of the skirt that garnered my true affection; she nearly reminded me of one of those precious wind-up dolls in a music box.

Léa Seydoux In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Léa Seydoux walked the blue carpet at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The French actress wore a Louis Vuitton gown that

I appreciate this from a fashion standpoint. The lace panels in the two front slits are creative and a breath of fresh air with such a heavy look. I love the nod to the 90s with the ‘tank over a shirt’ look, and this print is nothing, if not eye-catching. Yet, I’m still having a hard time with it.

At the end of the day, this simply isn’t flattering on Léa, and that is the most important element to any item of clothing!

So: Fashion forward or fashion flounder?

Brie Larson In Chanel – 2017 Met Gala

Brie Larson looks regal at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 gown with gold peep-toed sandals.

The detailing on this gown is the stuff of fashion dreams. Brie looks like a million fashion bucks, and I sure she feels like it, too.

I’m equally as smitten with her silver-rimmed smokey eyes and deeply side-parted old Hollywood waved updo.

But here’s a question: Is this stunning gown enough to get her on Best Dressed lists for this night? Or are there simply too many other, more dramatic options?

Ruby Rose In Burberry – 2017 Met Gala

Ruby Rose attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress let her Burberry gown shine without accessorizing it with anything beyond her extensive tattoos.

Am I crazy, or is this gown just a little too run-of-the-mill for the Met Gala? I feel like on any other red carpet, I would look upon it much more favorably, but it is striking me as just a bit blasé here.

Maybe it just feels too demure against Ruby’s tattoo sleeves and endlessly cool hair?

I need your opinions! Yay or nay on this look, on this night?

Rihanna In Comme des Garçons – 2017 Met Gala

Rihanna shut down the red carpet the minute she stepped onsite at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

This is the moment I’ve been waiting for on what is fashion’s biggest night—the brilliant adaptation of the evening’s avant-garde theme in the most wacky and wonderful of ways.

Pretty in pink took on all new meaning with the sweet, sculptural extravagance of a Comme des Garçons Fall 2016 floral-strewn jacquard design, as Ri Ri paid homage to honoured designer Rei Kawakubo.

Adding her own unique personality, the boundaries-pushing songstress took it to the next level with her strappy magenta heels, vibrant Harajuku makeup, and Chopard jewels.

The dress was something of an unorthodox secret garden if there ever was one. Were you as enchanted as I was by its eccentric yet fancified whimsy?
