Gabrielle Union In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Gabrielle Union In Prada - 2014 Met Gala

Gabrielle Union joined a host of beauties who wore Prada to the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The look featured a custom black crop top embellished with Swarovski crystals, beads and onyx stones paired with a knee-length feather-fringed black plastic wrap skirt.

I wanna love it, but the better half of my brain says there is too much going on and she failed to make it work.

A black leather Prada clutch embellished with grommets and onyx crystals plus Prada black satin sandals accessorized her look, with a braided updo adding the final nail.

Dakota Johnson In Jason Wu – 2014 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson In Jason Wu - 2014 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson attended the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Taking the dark and decadent route, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ actress opted for two shades of blue, wearing a custom Jason Wu navy micro-beaded camisole with a navy silk-gauze full skirt styled with a Lee Savage clutch, Christian Louboutin sandals, Carolina Amato black satin gloves with pearl buttons, and Jennifer Meyer 18k yellow-gold channel-set studs.

While the gloves bring the theme into the look, I don’t think they add anything but confusion.

I also wish she’d swept back her hair.

Sarah Paulson In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Sarah Paulson In Prada - 2014 Met Gala

When I saw Sarah Paulson on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5), my first thought was ‘this is much more like it’.

Following a succession of twee dresses and uncoordinated styling, this Prada look suits her style to a tee.

Dark and mysterious with plenty of intrigue, her custom Prada bottle-green tea-length organza gown featured a bodice framed by silver leather piping and a skirt embroidered with geometric Swarovski stones, crystals and plastic beads.

The amazing look was complemented with black embroidered satin pumps, a Prada silver leather clutch and IPPOLITA 18k gold ‘Rock Candy Gelato’ emerald-cut earrings.

A rare 10 out of 10 from me.

Are you equally swept away by this look?

Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel & Ashley Olsen In vintage Gianfranco Ferré & – 2014 Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen attended the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

While their kid sister Elizabeth Olsen opted for a summery hue, Ashley and Mary-Kate worked a dark colour palette.

As you know, I have probably never been a fan of their style, but on this occasion I found myself not shouting ‘next’ upon seeing Mary-Kate’s striped vintage Chanel gown and Ashley’s military-inspired Gianfranco Ferré.

Neither was unnecessarily oversized and both accessorized perfectly, with Ashley just edging out as my favourite here as I favour the sleek design.

My one wish, as always, is that they would stand apart on the red carpet so we could get a good look at their frocks.

Adele Exarchopoulos In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Adele Exarchopoulos stunned on the red carpet for the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Working a deep-brown lip, the rest of her breathtaking look was in total contrast.

She wore a custom Prada petal-pink satin corseted bustier with a floor-length stretch-tulle column skirt embroidered with mirrors, crystals and bubbles.

The bustier seems like it needs a bit more finessing, but the skirt is the star of this show.

A complementary pink Prada clutch and satin Prada platform sandals accessorized her look, with dark wavy tresses amping up the glamour.

Is the dark lip ruining this look for you?

Amber Heard attended the 2014 Met Gala held in New York City on Monday (May 5).

A shimmering gleam radiates from this embroidered Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture gown, with pops of red via her lips and manicure preventing this look from washing her out and feeling one-note.

Fred Leighton jewels added an extra touch of sparkle, with an updo completing her look.

Brie Larson In Prada – 2014 Met Gala

Brie Larson In Prada - 2014 Met Gala

Brie Larson joined the Prada parade on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

While Miuccia’s muses Margot Robbie and Lupita Nyong’o failed to excite, I couldn’t be more in love with Brie’s punchy Prada outing.

Her custom-designed geometric paillette- and bead-embroidered golden ensemble comprising a metallic sleeveless tunic and pants characterized by a gold chevron inlaid into a royal-blue jewelled base is a marvel to behold.

I’m intrigued by every facet of this look, including her Gaydamak yellow gold and white diamond ‘Plume’ hand bracelet, although her Prada accessories should’ve been navy-blue rather than black.

It is a fashionable futuristic look worthy of such an occasion.

Regarded as being quite shy on the red carpet, her personality and ability to step out of her comfort zone really shone through here.

Marina B rings completed her look.

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.
