Kristin Wiig In Balenciaga - 2014 Met Gala

Kristin Wiig attended the 2014 Met Gala as the guest of Alexander Wang, creative director of Balenciaga, on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Wearing a custom Balenciaga black bonded-crepe dress with a sequined ‘petal’ skirt over black silk cigarette trousers, the unique look stood out amongst all the gowns.

Kristin styled her high-fashion look with Balenciaga ‘Simple Cage’ rhinestone cuffs, black suede pointed-toe Balenciaga stilettos, and diamond and white-gold Boucheron ‘Ava’ earrings.

When I said I wanted Victoria Beckham to work a more unique look, this is exactly what I had in mind.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw continued her love affair at the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Wearing a custom Alber Elbaz look for the second time in a row, the British beauty looked divine in her lustrous black and white abstract floral silk-jacquard tea-length strapless dress with matching ankle-strap pumps, a black python oval Lanvin clutch and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

Silver eye makeup, shimmering pink lips and a silver floral hair accessory completed her head-to-toe perfect look.

Gugu appears to be well on her way to becoming a major fashion player.

For the 2014 Met Gala held in New York City on Monday (May 5), Jessica Alba attended as the guest of Diane von Furstenberg, joining fellow DVF Met Gala attendees Olivia Munn and Selena Gomez.

The actress wore a custom gold lace gown which was boosted by a flirty V-neckline.

Designed to shimmer and captivate from every angle, the look was styled with a DVF ‘Sutra’ clutch, an IPPOLITA 18k gold stardust pave-diamond branch reef ring, and gorgeous gold drop earrings.

Beauty-wise, I have one word: flawless.

Felicity Jones In Theory by Olivier Theyskens – 2014 Met Gala

Felicity Jones In Theory by Olivier Theyskens - 2014 Met Gala

Felicity Jones glided down the red carpet on Monday (May 5) in New York City for the 2014 Met Gala.

As we all know, the British actress likes to take a walk on the dark side; here she graduates from her favoured black to a rich deep emerald-green hue.

Her custom Theory by Olivier Theyskens bonded-silk gown with a sweetheart neckline and full skirt was styled with a matching clutch and Ana Khouri black-diamond, black-gold and black-pearl ‘Charlotte’ ring.

While I would’ve loved to have seen her in something with colour, and a chic updo, one can’t deny how breathtaking she looks in this gown.

Anne Hathaway In Calvin Klein – 2014 Met Gala

Anne Hathaway In Calvin Klein - 2014 Met Gala

Usually on Met Gala night you can predict the designer that Anne Hathaway is going to wear, but she gave us something different at the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ event on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

She wore a Calvin Klein strapless square-neckline gown featuring a sheer insert at the waist and a central slit in the skirt.

The look was styled with metallic Gianvito Rossi ‘Rebel’ pumps and an octagon Rauwolf clutch in deep-red hues (which may appear black on your screen), plus Vhernier Pan di Zucchero diamond earrings.

If I was to nitpick, I would’ve loved a slicked-back ‘do, and would’ve removed the earrings to strengthen the minimalism of this look further.

Kylie Minogue was a guest of Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The Marchesa designers created this gorgeous ivory silk-tulle gown with a deep plunging neckline, gold threadwork and black-diamond embroidery for the Australian actress/singer, which sees her step away from her favoured Italian designers for a rare change.

Sparkling with Harry Winston jewels, Kylie completed her look with the brand’s signature quartz-clasp clutch and a voluminous bouffant.

Alexa Chung In Nina Ricci – 2014 Met Gala

Alexa Chung attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Surprisingly, she didn’t wear her go-to designers Christopher Kane or Erdem, selecting a Nina Ricci piece instead.

I was also surprised to see her wearing a gown because, as you know, she loves to keep it short and sweet.

The blue-grey silk-radzimir strapless gown accented with bow detailing down the front was also a rare homerun for Alexa.

While the silver embellished clutch was the perfect accessory, I can’t get on board with the black pumps with gold-studded toecaps.

I’m picturing silver sandals with this gorgeous look in my mind’s eye.

Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss – 2014 Met Gala

Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss - 2014 Met Gala

I was wondering if Diane Kruger was starting to lose her edge following her last red carpet look, but she dialled up the glamour for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Wearing Hugo Boss, her ice-blue fully embellished gown with Bauhaus-inspired embroidery and a pleated overlay was both magical and heavenly.

Styled with a complementary Edie Parker ‘Jean’ pearl-white clutch, she completed her look with glossy lips and smouldering eye makeup.
