The Met Ball celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibition at the Costume Institute. It’s one of New York’s top annual social events and where celebrities go to dress to impress. This year sees fashion’s biggest names and stars in films and music come together to celebrate the opening of the Prada and Schiaparelli exhibition.
I’ve taken a look at what was worn – feathers seemed to be a popular choice… ^^
How to wear yellow (as seen by Solange)… and how not to wear yellow (as seen by Emma Roberts) below.
The Good: Below are examples of who I think dressed extremely well for the occasion…
The Bad and The Ugly: Below are examples of those who dressed badly for the occasion… and why I think this…
Balenciaga is one of my favourite designers… I don’t know what went wrong here. The shoes definitely shouldn’t have been styled with this dress and I don’t like the colour combination.
Oh Florence… this one speaks for itself.
The colouring of this dress is totally wrong for Dakota. She looks ghostly and totally washed out. If her hair was white blonde it may look better, but the yellow tone with the blue icy white doesn’t work.
I’m a huge fan of the Olsens, and I love their style. But remembering that Mary-Kate is no bigger than 5 foot, this dress swamps her and with the wispy fly-away hair, looks just far too witchy.
I really don’t like this. It looks cheap, like someone has taken the scissors to a badly fitted dress.
If this vintage suit was teamed with strappy heels and a black tight bodice, it would look classy. With pink, satin and pink dip dye, it looks rather cheap and tacky.
The colouring and style of this dress is quite dated. Maybe it’s the red lipstick with the blue. I don’t know, it just doesn’t look right.
Fashion is subjective and all of the above is based on my own opinions… I’d love to know your thoughts and whether you agree?
I’ll leave you to decide for yourselves on the below….
