Rihanna In Comme des Garçons – 2017 Met Gala

Rihanna shut down the red carpet the minute she stepped onsite at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

This is the moment I’ve been waiting for on what is fashion’s biggest night—the brilliant adaptation of the evening’s avant-garde theme in the most wacky and wonderful of ways.

Pretty in pink took on all new meaning with the sweet, sculptural extravagance of a Comme des Garçons Fall 2016 floral-strewn jacquard design, as Ri Ri paid homage to honoured designer Rei Kawakubo.

Adding her own unique personality, the boundaries-pushing songstress took it to the next level with her strappy magenta heels, vibrant Harajuku makeup, and Chopard jewels.

The dress was something of an unorthodox secret garden if there ever was one. Were you as enchanted as I was by its eccentric yet fancified whimsy?

Claire Foy In Erdem – 2017 Met Gala

Claire Foy attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

For the occasion, she wore a bespoke Erdem gown with a striking floral print.

I really love this springy print, and the color tone against her porcelain skin. I also love the unique sleeve length and the translation of a very prevalent streetwear trend to a red carpet gown.

Of course whether this falls in line with the night’s theme is, once again, a different story, but Claire looks gorgeous, and I’m not going to fight her on it!

Keeping a fresh face with that bright pop of red on the lips is not only beautiful with Claire’s flawless skin, it’s also a great pairing with the print.

Amy Schumer In Zac Posen – 2017 Met Gala

Amy Schumer went head-to-head with the fashion elite at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The comedienne wore a custom Zac Posen gown sans any jewelry of any kind.

Oh, Amy, Amy, Amy. I want to like your approach to fashion. I really do. But once again, I just can’t get behind what you’re giving us!

I am quite frankly shocked that this is a Zac Posen gown. Time and again we’ve seen his masterful creations, but this is simply a mess. The sheen of the fabric makes it scream ‘garbage bag’, and while I typically love a good cape, the rose detailing just feels dated and uninspired.

Am I being too harsh on the Amy/Zac duo, or do you agree with my harsh criticism?

Rita Ora In Marchesa – 2017 Met Gala

Marchesa and Rita Ora have been a winning combination since the singer first donned the British-born, New York-based brand back in 2012; so I was excited to see the union was on top form for Monday night’s (May 1) 2017 Met Gala.

While there are times I find Rita’s style frustratingly inconsistent, she tends to nail the big occasions.

I love that her custom Marchesa gown is beautifully draped and wrapped up with a neat bows while exuding couture-like craftsmanship.

There were many great gowns tonight, but this one left me breathless.

Michelle Monaghan In Paco Rabanne – 2017 Met Gala

Michelle Monaghan attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

She wore Paco Rabanne Fall 2017 gown with a Lee Savage clutch.

I am a huge fan of Michelle’s fashion choices, and this doesn’t change that one bit. She always seems to push the boundaries of fashion convention, but ever so slightly–nothing too shocking. This gown does the exact same, and is giving me major alien queen vibes, and that is a good thing in my book!

Pairing that chainmail-esque fabric with a simple and sleek chignon and understated makeup is superb.

Kim Kardashian In Vivienne Westwood – 2017 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian was the picture of sleek innocence at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Like Jennifer Lopez, I was rather surprised to see Kim K in such a subdued—ahem, covered up—look. Her pristine, white Vivienne Westwood gown featured a romantically feminine, off-the-shoulder silhouette, with her slick, board-straight locks bringing a mod edge to the more delicate dress.

As her sister Kylie Jenner had the ‘naked dress’ of the night, perhaps Kim gave her more suggestive statements the evening off.

Reese Witherspoon In Mugler – 2017 Met Gala

Reese Witherspoon hit the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The A-Lister wore a custom Mugler gown, which, unfortunately ages her a bit. I would be thrilled to see this gown on Jane Fonda or Helen Mirren, but for Reese, it just feels really mature.

I do love the striking shade or blue, and the asymmetrical sleeve drama is quite visually stimulating.

Overall, this definitely doesn’t push the fashion envelope very hard, but considering how traditionally Reese typically dresses, I think we have to give her props for getting ever-so-slightly outrageous.
