Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte – 2014 Met Gala

Kirsten-Dunst-In-Rodarte-2014-Met-Gala

Kirsten Dunst made a definite statement on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Ever since these Star Wars-themed gowns made their way down the runway at fashion week, everyone has wondered if and when they would show up again, and now we have our answer.

Kirsten rocked the Death Star-printed gown from Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection.

I’m sure there are plenty of people who find this ridiculous, but I absolutely love that Kirsten went with this dress. It’s mirthful, has a gorgeous silhouette, and if there’s anywhere you can make it work, it’s at the Met Gala!

A dark smokey eye, red lips and deeply side-parted updo complete Kristen’s look.

So, what do you think? Totally fun, or totally wrong?

Olivia Munn In Diane von Furstenberg – 2014 Met Gala

Olivia Munn In Diane von Furstenberg - 2014 Met Gala

Olivia Munn brightens up the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The actress wore a yellow long-sleeve gown by Diane Von Furstenberg with Fred Leighton Jewels and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Yellow is certainly not an easy color to pull off, but I do think Olivia wears it well with her dark cascading curls and coral lip.

However, the extremely low cut of the dress feels a little too daring for an event of this nature, taking away from Olivia’s radiant beauty. Nonetheless, I do appreciate her fashion risk with this daring shape and color. How do you feel about it?

Chloe Sevigny In Kenzo – 2014 Met Gala

Chloe Sevigny offered a pop of color on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The fashion risk-taker wore a striking Kenzo gown accented with a funky chartreuse clutch.

Her gown is both striking and fun, and is actually almost ‘safe’ when it comes to Chloe’s usual fashion playbook.

The bright colour and graphic lines are totally eye-catching, and I just so wish that her hair wasn’t so completely blah.

Chloe stayed within her comfort zone of very minimalist makeup, and the slight punch of orangey-red lipstick is a great finishing touch.

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Lena Dunham was at the 2014 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The ‘Girls’ actress, who is always a bit of a red-carpet wild card, wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture high-low design that loosely paid homage to the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ exhibit with its abbreviated ball-skirt silhouette.

Even though it was strapless and a mullet dress, she wore it quite well.

The black frock, which was festooned with blue and pink floral embroidery, was the main attraction here, as she did little to clutter the effect. Minimal jewels, barely-there makeup and plain black pumps all worked in her favour on this occasion.

For someone I place more often in the ‘miss’ category, this look I actually found to be more of a ‘hit’. Would you agree?

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Lily Allen attended the 2014 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Working many shades of grey, she turned to the Chanel archives in a Fall 2012 Couture gown, which was embellished by ballet-pink accents via bows at the shoulders and ribbon panels.

Sparkle came in the form of Chanel Fine Jewelry pieces, and dynamic nail art brought some sass appeal.

So, too, did her dramatic, overly exaggerated cat-eye and her sculpted, jet-black hair, which was piled high atop her head, perhaps in an effort to bring in more vintage-inspired flair.

Reese Witherspoon stunned at the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The blonde beauty went with a Stella McCartney strapless pink gown. The neckline was almost heart-shaped with a twist and the dress continued down in a statuesque form ending in a slight soft train.

But the Hollywood glamour did not stop there. She complemented the dress with a simplistic bangle on her forearm and stunning diamond earrings. Her soft curls framed her face and her makeup consisted of cateyes and matching pink lips. Absolute perfection.

Not only was this another of my favorite looks of the night but, was anyone else excited to see the Oscar winner wear pink? Just like her ‘Legally Blonde’ days, but better!

Selena Gomez In Diane von Furstenberg – 2014 Met Gala

Selena Gomez struck a sleek silhouette on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The singer and actress wore a sleek custom Diane von Furstenberg gown, which she accented with dramatic Lorraine Schwartz earrings and cocktail ring.

There is something to be said for being 21, and that something is the body of a 21-year-old. The beautiful, body-hugging fabric on this dress is anything but forgiving, but Selena looks like a total knock-out.

Lashes for days, a bright berry lip and a chic in the front, intricate in the back updo complete this killer ensemble.

What say you? Are you as much of a fan of this look on Selena as I am?

Emma Stone In Thakoon – 2014 Met Gala

Emma Stone In Thakoon - 2014 Met Gala

Emma Stone was captivating at the 2014 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 5).

Coming off her recent chic streak for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ promotions, the actress continued to impress in her custom Thakoon two-piece pink and magenta, colour-block gown.

The body-skimming, tailored edge of the cropped halter top with a crisscross back was beautifully juxtaposed with the flowing wrap skirt which trailed loosely behind her.

She accessorized with a complementary Tod’s metallic and magenta box clutch, barely the hint of jewels and a chunky side braid.

While it had nothing in common with the rush of ball gowns that were seen on the red carpet, I cannot help but love this effortless and contemporary style that was eye-catchingly notable purely by its simplicity.

Zoe Kravitz rocked the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The ‘Divergent’ actress wore a custom Topshop dress in a deep red. A low cleavage and a high slit in the front added to the racy coolness of this look.

She complemented the gown with a black clutch and sandals plus stacked bangles, rings on every finger and of course, her tattoos. Kravitz rounded up her look with dark nails and smokey eyes.

Now, this is what I’m talking about when I say I love seeing stars’ personalities come through! She nailed it. This is who she is and she looks edgy without trying too hard.
