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.
Alba Rohrwacher: I always get an indie vibe from the Italian actress, which puts her in the; willing-to-take-a-risk, never-likely-to-be-mundane category when it comes to red carpet dressing. However, one word sprang to mind upon seeing her in this Valentino Spring 2015 Couture gown – unfortunate. I see the potential, but I feel like the top half is sucking the life out of her.
Li Bingbing: I was very surprised by Bingbing’s choice in this Dior Haute Couture two-piece, as it only serves to stumptify her plus the silhouette – having been done by Jennifer Lawrence, Felicity Jones, Marion Cotillard and Carice van Houten.
Tang Wei: The Chinese actress was part of the Burberry crew donning a silver crystal accented gown with contrast framing detail. It may be void of the cultural theme, but steeped in elegance.
Natasha Poly: The model wore a Topshop liquid gold form fitting dress with a raised contoured neckline and side splits. Sadly, it does nothing for me. Modes are the ones we turn to at this event, but even they were lackluster this year.
