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.

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.

Ivanka Trump In Zac Posen – 2015 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Ivanka Trump In Zac Posen - 2015 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Ivanka Trump was one of the many A-Listers to attend the 101st annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner (lovingly referred to as #NerdProm) last night (April 25) at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.

For the grand affair, Ivanka chose a classic silhouette and color with a stunning Zac Posen gown from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection. The sweetheart neckline and flounced mermaid skirt (complete with a train in the back) are fun and offer an editorial view, while diamond De Beers jewels and a red box clutch continue the glamourous statement.

I love this bold look on Ivanka. The mogul often uses restraint in her fashion choices, but I love that she went with such a bold color, while keeping things classic with a modern twist.

Voluminous curls and a matte red lip are perfect finish to the lovely look.

Dakota Fanning In Zac Posen – ‘Franny’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Zac Posen - 'Franny' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning attended the premiere of ‘Franny’ during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Friday (April 17) in New York City.

Channeling a more girly silhouette, the starlet wore a Zac Posen Spring 2015 ballet-pink frock that was reminiscent of a shrunken, princess ballgown.

The dress was nearly too precious for my taste, but the quirkier metallic-gold platform shoes and bright beet-red lip cut through the super-sweet flavour for a charming-cool finish.

Katie Holmes In Zac Posen – ‘Woman In Gold’ New York Premiere

Katie Holmes In Zac Posen - 'Woman In Gold' New York Premiere

Katie Holmes struck a fierce pose on the red carpet of the ‘Woman In Gold’ New York premiere at The Museum of Modern Art yesterday (March 30).

The actress wore a watermelon-hued, brocade, floral-print Zac Posen gown with waist cut-outs from the designer’s Fall 2015 collection.

She paired the dress with simple black pumps, and gold bangles.

This look is a real stand-out for Katie, and I love everything about it, head-to-toe. With Zac by her side, it’s obvious that the dress was tailored specifically for her, as seen in the impeccable fit.

Wearing her hair back and shiny, her skin bronzed and her makeup perfectly smokey, Katie has be totally swooning.

Michelle Obama In Zac Posen – BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’

Michelle Obama In Zac Posen - BET's 'Black Girls Rock!'

Michelle Obama attended the BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’ event at NJ Performing Arts Center on Saturday (March 28) in Newark, New Jersey where she received a standing ovation for her powerful, inspirational speech.

After wearing so much colour and prints during her tour of Asia last week, some might be relieved that the First Lady opted for a white, off-the-shoulder, knee-length dress from Zac Posen’s Fall 2015 collection, which marries classic elegance with contemporary design.

I love how the bustier gives this look a hint of sex appeal and the styling of the look, which included silver jewels and Jimmy Choo pumps, complemented the delicate embellishments on her frock.

I’m sure there will be some debate about her shoulders being on display, but I think she looks undeniably chic from head to toe and even as a lover of colour and print, I think this look beats all of her looks from the Asian tour.
