Kate Hudson In Michael Kors – 2015 Met Gala

Kate Hudson In Michael Kors - 2015 Met Gala

Kate Hudson made a shimmery turn on the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Her custom Michael Kors gown is intrinsically Chinese in shape, and the gold leaf overlay creates a glamorous, gilded effect.

I’m not going to lie, from far away, I was very disappointed in this look, but once I saw the gown up-close, I was immediately swayed. Kate literally looks like she is dripping in gold, and the gown, though understated, could be a museum-piece.

I am take it or leave it with the loose updo and beaded hairpiece, but her glowing makeup, flawless brows and matte raspberry lipstick are stunning.

Elizabeth Banks In Michael Kors – 2015 Met Gala

Elizabeth Banks attended the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

I saw little of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ theme in her Michael Kors cutout gown that needed a good steam for the wrinkles, although it was rendered in a glorious shade of teal blue.

Her architectural updo, along with a Lee Savage ‘Infinite Space’ clutch and Kara Ross ring, served to create a futuristic flair.

Perhaps I am overly disappointed as I was expecting so much more from the actress.

Sienna Miller In Thakoon – 2015 Met Gala

Sienna Miller In Thakoon - 2015 Met Gala

Sienna Miller was also at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Also eschewing a gown, the actress wore Thakoon separates rendered in a rich, ruby red hue and embellished with all-over beaded sparkle.

There is something of a matador aesthetic intertwined with the cropped jacked and black tasseled obi sash here.

She accessorized with matching black tassel earrings and a complementary Rauwolf clutch, with a sleek bun completing the look.

I wish the gaping plunge had tapered to a v-shape for more flattering appeal.

Selena Gomez attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Playing to the theme, the singer-actress wore a custom Vera Wang white cutout gown with black tassels at the back and a long train that provided a beautiful streamlined effect.

A floral headpiece atop her slicked-back updo along with a China-doll red lip completed the look.

This likely won’t be one of the more memorable looks of the evening, but what do you make of her effort?

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela – 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney In Maison Margiela Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Amal Clooney walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4) arm in arm with her dashing husband George Clooney.

Her strapless red Maison Margiela ‘Artisanal’ gown is clearly made for her body (that tiny waist!) and she looks every bit the part of high fashion goddess that she has earned since coming into the spotlight with George.

At first I questioned how this dress fit into the Chinese theme of the night, but when I realized how Chinese-military inspired the bodice was, I just swooned. I love that Amal and the gown went a completely different direction with the theme, and the intricacies in the construction are riveting.

While I might have liked to see Amal go for a major hair departure with some kind of striking updo, with hair that perfect, I guess you just really want to show it off. All in all, a total win for Mrs. Clooney in my book.
