Sarah Jessica Parker In H&M – 2015 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker In H&M - 2015 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker easily commanded the red carpet upon her theatrical arrival at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Those wishing for a dramatic look that embodies the evening’s Chinese theme will find no fault with the extravagance of her statement here.

What may be more unexpected is that she has embraced high-street for the evening, wearing a custom H&M one-shoulder gown embellished by a large red flower and tapestry-style runner and complemented by Cindy Chao brooches.

But the real star of the show—the crown jewel of her look—was the fiery, flame-wielding headpiece by Philip Treacy, adorned with pom poms and tassels.

What I love most is not the look, per se, but that SJP has never been one to shirk a good Met Gala theme, taking full advantage of the spirit of the evening with her artfully experimental and creatively over-the-top looks that are nothing if not memorable.

Katie Holmes In Zac Posen – 2015 Met Gala

Katie Holmes In Zac Posen - 2015 Met Gala

Katie Holmes turned heads as she walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Once again serving as designer Zac Posen’s muse, she wore a midnight blue creation with shimmery embroidery.

The cut on the gown is striking on Katie, and the dress is something like staring into a night sky, which is divine. Her diamond cuff and metallic clutch are the perfect complements to the look.

But, taking nothing away from the lovely gown, perhaps the most head-turning element of Katie’s look is her fierce bob. A definite nod to the Chinese theme of the night, and almost certainly a wig, the style looks amazing on Katie, and I seriously wish she would actually cut her hair this way! It gives her an edgier vibe that I’m totally loving.

Nude lips, bronzed skin and smudgy eye makeup finish off the perfect finishing touch.

Anne Hathaway In Ralph Lauren – 2015 Met Gala

Anne Hathaway In Ralph Lauren - 2015 Met Gala

Anne Hathaway made a major statement as she walked the red carpet at the 2015 Met Gala in New York City tonight (May 4).

Love her or leave her, Anne has an uncanny ability to get people talking (remember when she debuted her platinum pixie at the 2013 event?), and her custom Ralph Lauren gold lamé hooded cap sleeve column evening dress is surely no exception.

While the statement might not be as in-your-face as some of the extravagant headpieces walking the carpet tonight, the hood is definitely giving us some major editorial rhetoric, and I absolutely love what it’s saying. Understated, but daring.

An ear full of diamond cuffs and simple makeup complete the streamlined, chic look, and the only thing I’d change is that gold clutch. I’m not a fan of the mismatched golds, and really think the look would have benefitted from another option.

Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier – 2015 Met Gala

Lizzy Caplan was one of the first stars to hit the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

In keeping with the night’s ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ theme, Lizzy wore a Donna Karan Atelier gown with beading, fringe and appliqué detailing.

The pink champagne color of the gown is gorgeous, and I love how the beading and fringe allude to the theme without getting campy. Her Edie Parker box clutch, beaded earrings and ruby cocktail ring are stunning details.

I appreciate the monochromatic elements here–the manicure, the clutch and the gown–but I’m also really glad to see the matte red lip, which, in addition to the high bun, really elevate the complete look to an amazing level.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior Couture – 2015 Met Gala

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

As she’s serving as the co-host, I had high hopes for her sartorial selection. But sadly they weren’t quite fulfilled.

It will come as no surprise that she is wearing Christian Dior, this time a Spring 2015 Couture gown modified from the runway. Nor will many be shocked that this designer number falls more into the underwhelming category, especially for an evening such as this.

While some elements of the dress are promising, including the mod, Asian-inspired floral embellishment that traces down the back of the gown, I cannot get past the contrasting bib-like addition at the neckline.

Remove the distraction of the bib; swap the pink lip for a richer red hue; and add a statement pair of exquisite earrings; and we may have had ourselves a marginally better look.

Diane Kruger In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Diane Kruger In Chanel Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Diane Kruger was one of the first spotted at the 2015 Met Gala, themed ‘China: Through the Looking Glass,’ and hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

On an evening where sweeping gowns are to be expected at every turn, the actress took a delightful detour by donning a Chanel Spring 2011 Couture ensemble accessorized by Chanel Fine Jewelry.

Radiating with a delicately luminous quality, there was a sense of fantasy and grace to the embellished bustier top, floaty chiffon sash, and sparkling leggings that provided a softer approach to the Asian theme.

Any other occasion would have left me questioning the red Judith Leiber clutch. But the colour was obviously chosen for its relevance to the evening and it was beautifully reflected in her lip, with a flower in her sideswept ’do completing the look.
