Final Sweep Of The 2015 Met Gala Red Carpet

met gala 2015

As you know when it comes to the Met Gala, I always – as impossible as the task is – try to feature everyone, so here is the final sweep from Monday’s (May 4) event.

As this is very last post, leave your top 10 in the comments.

Livia Firth: Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you pay homage to the Chinese theme. Livia’s Antonio Berardi for the Green Carpet Challenge gown was elegant, refined, and so refreshing on a night were the self-promotion and not living up to the dress code ruled. Easily one of the best on the night, and her arm-candy (husband Colin Firth) scrubbed up nicely to.

Carina Lau: Sadly, the Asian actress got a bum deal from the pictures agencies who only added them to their sites the day after the event (no doubt not recognising who these beauties were, and what joy they were bringing to this lacklustre table). Continuing her love affair with all things Schiaparelli Haute Couture, Carina wore a black and white look marrying both Chinese intricacies with modernity and less face it – plenty of fierceness. I can also picture this on Dita von Teese.

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.

Poppy Delevingne In Topshop – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Poppy Delevingne In Topshop - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Poppy Delevingne was also spotted at the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1) at the London Coliseum in England, where she was on-hand to support her supermodel-sis Cara Delevingne.

In a sea of high fashion, the socialite instead flaunted a high-street look in a Topshop wispy black embellished frock that signaled yet another incarnation of the sheer trend.

Yet there is still a fresh, boho edge to her interpretation of the sexy, see-through party dress, especially when teamed with a whimsical cat clutch by Charlotte Olympia and Nicholas Kirkwood hexagon-accented pumps.

Vamping up her typically au naturel beauty approach, she wore a sultry smoky eye and coaxed her blonde locks into a voluminous blowout.

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner Party

Topshop Topman New York City Flagship Opening Dinner

Topshop and Topman hosted a dinner party to celebrate their new New York City 5th Avenue flagship store held at Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday (November 4) in New York City, inviting a host of celebs with the glaring omission of Ashley Madekwe and Demi Lovato.

Beyonce Knowles: Following the announcement of a Beyonce/Topshop 50-50 partnership to create a sportswear brand, the singer was no doubt top of the invite list. Giving her new shorter hairstyle a red carpet debut, the singer wore a Topshop flocked sequin bodycon dress which hugged her bootylicious bod. The dress may have been high street, but the jewels were high end courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz.

Ciara: As you know, the decline in Ciara’s style has been a bitter pill to swallow; however, on this occasion I am buying what she’s selling. This rugged laidback b-girl style consisting of a simple black top and Topshop leather look dungrees sees her back on track. Laden with a selection of rings, leather buckled boots and smoky eyes, lets pray it’s onwards and upwards from here on out.

Cara Delevingne: It may be black again, but it’s yet another super hot look for the model. Putting the L in LBD, this Topshop Exclusive mini packs a mighty punch with its halter neckline and gold detailing down the sides.
