Karolina Kurkova In Marchesa – 2014 Met Gala

Karolina Kurkova In Marchesa - 2014 Met Gala

Karolina Kurkova is something out of a dream on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 5).

The supermodel wore a Marchesa Spring 2011 gown in a deep teal hue with a painterly floral print. The dramatic shape and cut of the dress are a work of art and is perfectly accented with incredible Harry Winston diamonds.

The gorgeous Karolina kept her hair and makeup very simple to let her stunning ensemble do the talking.

This is just the kind of unique yet glamorous look that an event like this calls for. I think she looks simply breathtaking, do you?

    this is perfection, she nailed this look.

  4. Marcel May 6, 2014 at 11:18 #

    Words fail to describe such perfection.
    BDOTY contender
    BDOTDecade, category especially made after her.

    • Prudence May 6, 2014 at 15:02 #

      YES YES YES YES. She has opened a new category BDOTD!!

    A knockout moment. Very high on my favourites list.

    Where does Karolína get all these stunning gowns? I love her, I really do, and she’d rock the hell out of a potato sack, but at the end of the day she can’t exactly be considered an A-lister, nor a starlet.

    • Lurker May 6, 2014 at 15:24 #

      She is a supermodel. Is it really that much of a headscratcher?

    • Kathy May 7, 2014 at 15:01 #

      It’s Marchesa…not exactly top-notch haute couture. Not trying to downplay how spectacular this dress is, but anyone even remotely relevant can have access to their dresses.

      • Jeremy May 7, 2014 at 19:09 #

        KK is more than “remotely relevant”. She’s an Icon in the modelling world and one of very few genuine Supermodels to emerge since the 2000s. Plus, she has a relationship with this particular brand since it’s beginning, when she walked their first show and has worked with Karen and Georgina many times in the decade since.

  6. TL May 6, 2014 at 09:31 #

    Flawless and Stunning. She totally rocked it.

  7. fatima May 6, 2014 at 09:14 #

    The dress is awesome, and I’ve never liked anything by Marchesa. It’s a stunner, but her hair and makeup are a bit simple for the dress.

  8. amy May 6, 2014 at 08:27 #

    DRAMA! at any other place I would have said too much but hey this is the met ball, if you can’t go big…
    she looks great

  9. Jeremy May 6, 2014 at 07:55 #

    I am a massive KK fan, maybe one of her biggest.

    You can’t imagine my excitement right now! Haha.

    My anticipation for this event has been indescribable. I KNEW that KK would knock it out of the park and she absolutely did. This is one of my favourite red carpet looks of her’s EVER. Perfect for the theme. Perfect for the MET.

    Can’t pick my jaw up off the floor. I think she’s the most beautiful woman in the world, so I pretty much always think she’s the best dressed. But in this case, I don’t believe I’m being biased to say so. BEST OF THE NIGHT. For sure.

  10. Yeliz May 6, 2014 at 07:40 #

    Sensational. I knew that she wouldn’t let us down. I love this perfect look so much. Even though there were a lot of stunning looks at this event, she is definitely the best dressed. And BDOTY worthy.

    • Christine May 6, 2014 at 12:28 #

      Definitely my top pick for BDOTY!!!!! Will definitely remember this at the end of the year! That’s my girl! She’s my style crush for a reason lol

  11. Valissa May 6, 2014 at 07:29 #

    I’m going to start of by saying that I don’t generally like big fat ball gowns. Nor do I like Marchesa.
    This however, is amazing!! It’s outrageous and dramatic and striking and beautiful…and fits the theme perfectly!
    Not many woman could pull this off but Karolina is truly one of a kind with her statuesque figure and engaging presence.
    Great job!!

  12. kane May 6, 2014 at 07:12 #

    I literally can’t take my eyes off it. And I mean literally: I keep coming back every few minutes just to seek out this post again. I might just keep it open for the rest of the day. Wow! Emmy’s Met look from last year ended up in my BDOTY top3 and it’s pretty safe to say that so will this one for 2014.

  13. Prudence May 6, 2014 at 06:07 #

    she is hands down best dressed of the night, no one comes near this greatness.

  14. Skye May 6, 2014 at 05:42 #

    I am in awe of the architecture of this gown. Karolina being paired with this gown is perfection.

  15. Rebecca Z May 6, 2014 at 05:24 #

    WOW. Speechless.

  16. Vadler May 6, 2014 at 04:18 #

    Vavavoom! The only question is, how do you sit down at the dinner table in that? 😉

  17. tuftufwang May 6, 2014 at 04:05 #

    I just love the drama of this dress and I’m so so glad that a supermodel is wearing this rather than a celebrity. It’s unreal. My favorite for the night

  18. Susan N. May 6, 2014 at 03:53 #

    Crying from the perfection. I know it’s only May but this look is a BDOTY nominee.

  19. Pedro May 6, 2014 at 02:56 #

    This is epic!

    One of the most beautiful looks that i’ve ever seen!

    Best Dressed Of The Year!!!

  20. yy May 6, 2014 at 02:28 #

    Hands down, best dressed. She always delivers.

  21. Jess May 6, 2014 at 02:27 #

    My favourite of the night as of right now! This is what fashion is about, moments like these! Love the dress and her in it! BDOTW contender and the YEAR!

  22. Erin May 6, 2014 at 02:07 #


  23. Ariel May 6, 2014 at 01:59 #

    This is the right amount of drama. Love it but would’ve preferred a red lip.

  24. Joy May 6, 2014 at 01:44 #

    Oh my goodness! After looking through the first page or so of dresses and not being very impressed, here is something to get excited about. This dress is gorgeous on Karolina. My girl always brings it. Stunning, and so far my favorite of the night.

    • Joy May 6, 2014 at 10:40 #

      She most definitely deserves BDOTN, BDOTW, & BDOTY. She nailed the theme so beautifully.

  25. Eri May 6, 2014 at 01:44 #

    She delivers on every red carpet!

  26. dee May 6, 2014 at 01:41 #

    Favorite of the night. This is fabulous.

  27. Kat May 6, 2014 at 01:28 #

    If you can wear this dress anywhere, Met gala is definitely it! Perfect.



  28. RT May 6, 2014 at 01:25 #

    This gown comes alive on Karolina Kurkova. The model looks lost in the gown.

  29. sanette May 6, 2014 at 01:24 #

    So far the best of the night. My jaw is on the floor.

  30. Milla B. May 6, 2014 at 01:20 #

    Wow! This is perfection. My favorite until now, and for sure will be one of my favorite dress at the end of the night.

  31. Marybeth May 6, 2014 at 01:17 #

    WOW! I wouldn’t have expected a Marchesa to be the one to beat tonight, but………WOW!
    This is sooooo perfect for the theme and event.
    I’m catching my breath!

  32. Hermoine May 6, 2014 at 01:17 #

    Finally!!! Just beautiful, exactly what this theme was about

  33. Mandy May 6, 2014 at 01:14 #

    I think she looks absolutely stunning, she carries this massive looks so well. I love the colour.

  34. CreoleLady May 6, 2014 at 01:14 #

    Wow, spectacular dress. She wears it well. Although big floral prints can be chintz-y, I’m completely captivated here.

  35. Lena May 6, 2014 at 01:11 #

    this is the one to beat tonight and to be honest I don’t think anyone will manage

  36. E Roach May 6, 2014 at 01:08 #

    I actually gasped. Amazing dress and she has the right poise for it.

  37. Carmen May 6, 2014 at 01:08 #


  38. Nat39 May 6, 2014 at 01:07 #

    Absolutely spectacular! This look has all the drama needed for the event in addition to paying homage to Charles James’s sculpted ball gown designs. She delivered, great choice for the event.

  39. shontay May 6, 2014 at 01:05 #

  44. Amanda May 6, 2014 at 01:04 #

    The saying “Go big or go home” comes to mind when I saw this. Stunningly beautiful and it looks like it was hand painted. I love it.

    • Ally May 6, 2014 at 04:03 #

  45. Bec May 6, 2014 at 01:04 #
