Kim Kardashian In Vivienne Westwood – 2017 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian was the picture of sleek innocence at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Like Jennifer Lopez, I was rather surprised to see Kim K in such a subdued—ahem, covered up—look. Her pristine, white Vivienne Westwood gown featured a romantically feminine, off-the-shoulder silhouette, with her slick, board-straight locks bringing a mod edge to the more delicate dress.

As her sister Kylie Jenner had the ‘naked dress’ of the night, perhaps Kim gave her more suggestive statements the evening off.

Reese Witherspoon In Mugler – 2017 Met Gala

Reese Witherspoon hit the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The A-Lister wore a custom Mugler gown, which, unfortunately ages her a bit. I would be thrilled to see this gown on Jane Fonda or Helen Mirren, but for Reese, it just feels really mature.

I do love the striking shade or blue, and the asymmetrical sleeve drama is quite visually stimulating.

Overall, this definitely doesn’t push the fashion envelope very hard, but considering how traditionally Reese typically dresses, I think we have to give her props for getting ever-so-slightly outrageous.

Nicki Minaj In H&M – 2017 Met Gala

Nicki Minaj went for broke at the 2017 Met Gala with a truly over-the-top look on Monday (May 1).

The singer wore a custom H&M gown, which left many people saying, really? H&M?

Here I have been complaining about people not leaning in to the night’s theme enough, and now we have Nicki, and I’m still not happy. There is just way too much going on here, and I find it to be very tastelessly executed.

The asymmetry, the kimono-inspired detailing, the beading, the train, the belt–I am super confused. Is she a super hero? A video game vixen? A lingerie model? It’s all too much, and I simply can’t stand it.

Let me hear from you: Am I being too harsh on this get-up?

Jennifer Lopez In Valentino – 2017 Met Gala

I will be the first to admit I did a double-take upon seeing Jennifer Lopez at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

This could be more fabric than the entertainer has worn in all her previous looks combined.

Majorly dialing back the overt sex appeal that she favours by wearing this diaphanous Valentino gown, I have to applaud her for trying something new.

That said, I found this look to translate as the exact opposite of fashion-forward. Instead, it was rather dated—from its icy prom-blue colour, to J. Lo’s styling including the large diamond earrings, frosted lip, and half-up ’do.

Diane Kruger In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

Diane Kruger attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress and fashion lover wore a custom Prada gown accented with a gold bracelet and baby blue clutch.

Avant garde? No. Completely dramatic in its own rite? Most definitely. The gold beaded designs are really beautiful and whilst you cannot see it here, the back is sans beading and has a really fabulous draped detail.

I’m absolutely crazy about her choice of carrying a seemingly unrelated light blue clutch, and her makeup is perfection. Her radiant skin, light pink lips and flushed cheeks have her looking half her age.
