Riley Keough In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Riley Keough hit the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a zipper-front Louis Vuitton sequin column gown with a few delicate rings and striking boots.

Riley’s styling here is impeccable. The idea of wearing booties with this look is downright inspired. The military inspired stripes and cords, along with the asymmetry in the print and belt is all so hard-edged and it’s a real delight. Very offbeat, and as a result, so much fashion fun.

I also love Riley’s simplistic makeup. It would have been very easy to ramp up her beauty look to go along with this dress, but by keeping things glowy and soft, a real story is being told.

Alexa Chung In Diane von Furstenberg – 2017 Met Gala

Alexa Chung attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The fashion influencer wore a Diane von Furstenberg gown with Monique Péan jewelry.

This gown is so much fun with it’s tiny dotted print. It also fits like a dream, and is really Alexa’s signature style come to life in one dress.

All that said, at an occasion such as the Met Gala, this definitely get lost amid the drama and risks. Which I hate, because it’s a absolutely gorgeous gown, and Alexa looks fabulous!

I also would have loved to see Alexa step outside her hair comfort zone and lose her signature messy lob for something more daring–and perhaps even theme-appropriate?–for tonight.

Kylie Jenner In Atelier Versace – 2017 Met Gala

Kylie Jenner made quite a scene at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The gown, which is already being dubbed ‘the Naked Gown’ by the press, is a one-of-a-kind Atelier Versace creation. The Kardashian sister paired the stunning gown with carefully placed Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

This gown really is a work of art. With the intricate beading, the beaded fringe and the sequined appliqués, this gown under many other hands would flounder into a too-busy mess, but be keeping things in the neutral family, Verasce has created a work of art.

And while I certainly mean no offense to Kylie’s perfect makeup and striking Donetella-esque hair color and bob, it almost doesn’t even matter–can anyone take their eyes off that gown?

Elizabeth Banks In Michael Kors Collection – 2017 Met Gala

Elizabeth Banks had my head spinning the minute she stepped onto the carpet at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Not only did the actress debut a new platinum ’do, she donned a custom Michael Kors optical-illusion column dress styled with a Jimmy Choo ‘Box’ clutch and gems from Established Jewelry and Jennifer Fisher.

The funhouse-worthy combination of geometric circles and squares in this graphic gown had nothing short of a psychedelic effect.

My one complaint with this look? I loved it—I think—but, I couldn’t rest my eyes on it for too long without absorbing its dizzying effect.

Haute or headache?

Lena Dunham In Elizabeth Kennedy – 2017 Met Gala

Lena Dunham struck a pose on the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The writer and actress wore a dramatic Elizabeth Kennedy gown with vintage-inspired diamond jewelry.

I’m lost as to what the connection this tartan-esque look has with the theme, but I’m still into it. Which, if you know me, and my very discontent relationship with Lena’s fashion choices, is a huge shock! The gown is fun, dramatic and Lena carries it off well.

Of course, my praise stops there. Lena’s boring kohl-rimmed eyes looks more emo-teen than high fashion, and her updo is just plain sloppy.

Selena Gomez In Coach – 2017 Met Gala

Selena Gomez made an adorable showing at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City, with The Weeknd on her arm.

Bringing a hint of the boudoir to the blue carpet, she wore a ballet-pink Coach lace slip gown, sprinkled through with girly notes of embellishment.

I can only gather that the choker and that brash swipe of magenta eye shadow were both used as an attempt to bring an avant-garde edge to the sweeter side of this dress.

However, I wish she had skipped such strong styling components, as the punk-pretty juxtaposition just didn’t correspond at all.
