2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Lily Collins In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Lily Collins In Chanel Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Lily Collins also made an appearance on the red carpet of tonight’s 2015 Met Gala in New York City.

The glamorous young star went highly editorial in a blouse and skirt from the Chanel Spring 2015 Couture collection and Chanel fine jewelry. While this look may be a bit more casual in nature than some of the other looks from the night, there is enough high-fashion interest to completely hold my attention.

As usual, Lily’s makeup is beyond divine, and her flawless skin and enviable brows leave me green with envy.

And while I can’t make the birdcage veil be Chinese in any way, it is completely Chanel, and I’ve never met a birdcage veil I didn’t love.

Dakota Johnson In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

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

Flaunting her newly shorn bob, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ actress mirrored a glitzy disco ball in her Chanel Fall 2013 Couture sculpted, embellished minidress, which bore little resemblance to its original runway entrance.

She styled the frock with Chanel Fine Jewelry earrings and the Chanel limited edition Matryoshka bag from the Paris-Moscow Pre-Fall 2009 collection.

I think she may have shown up to the wrong party.

Rachel Weisz In Chanel Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Rachel Weisz looked lovely as she walked the red carpet of the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 4).

Donning a silver Chanel Couture gown with delicate grey beading, Rachel looks like a porcelain doll. But, dare I say it, the gown is completely underwhelming! The runway version has so much more editorial appeal, but this strapless iteration is much too dull for such an occasion.

Flawless skin, a matte red lip and matching mani/pedi, old Hollywood waves and a slightly smokey eye finish the look.

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.

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner was hosted at Balthazar in New York City on Monday (April 20), where the fashion house’s famous fans gathered to raise a toast.

Zoe Kravitz: While it was lovely to see the actress’s softer side in this Chanel ensemble consisting of a pink cropped sweater and flirty, flared patterned skirt, I simply couldn’t get past those white pumps.

Cobie Smulders: I loved Cobie’s Chanel outing which artfully combined patterns in a painterly, watercolour top and tweed trousers. Her ‘Ladies First’ handbag put the final tongue-in-cheek zing into the look.

Michiel Huisman: He wore a navy Jack Wills suit and Haspel Clothing Hawaiian-print shirt with wife Tara Elders in an army-green dress and black shoulder bag. While it’s hard to argue with the actor’s handsome gaze, I simply don’t understand this island-inspired look on this occasion.

Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection New York Fashion Show

CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014 15  new york

Bold names filled the front row of the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City on Tuesday (March 31), where the collection of stars naturally all wore their Chanel head-to-toe best to watch the Austrian-inspired designs take to the runway.

Dakota Johnson: The ’50 Shades of Grey’ star continued to break outside her black-and-white-color shell in a warmly neutral Chanel Spring 2014 Couture dress with tonal button detailing. The strength of this look was in the silhouette that played with proportion in the cropped jacket and sleeves and defined waist. Sophisticatedly subtle with an edge, the look was styled with a classic black Chanel bag and tough-chic shoe boots.

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams: The power couple were well-coordinated; she in a characteristic, cropped Chanel jacket in multi-colour tweed mixed with the urban appeal of a sporty-luxe pair of gold grid shorts. Black tights, biker boots, and a white shoulder bag completed the split-personality look that somehow worked for Helen. As the face of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 collection, Pharrell obliged in regal style, rocking out a double-breasted, military-inspired coat with long white shorts and a captain’s hat. It was a performance-ready look, so it was only fitting that he later took the stage with Cara Delevingne to sing ‘CC The World.’
