2014 Met Gala Red Carpet Fashion

Fashion May 06, 2014


Get the inside scoop on the best and worst dressed from the 2014 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute gala.

Fashion’s biggest night of the year took place yesterday. The 2014 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual costume institute gala opened in celebration of the theme ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’. As the hottest celebrities walked the red carpet, the fashion world waited to see who and what would take their breath away.   
  
Main themes spotted on the red carpet were expected: volume, pleats, trains in pure couture fashion along with chic minimalism, but of course no red carpet is without its rebels who this year pushed skin, sheers and short hems, along with a good dose of the wacky.  

The Wow Factor

Dita Von Teese in Zac Posen/ luckymag


The burlesque star shows off her feminine curves in an exquisite Zac Posen mermaid gown. The designer whose dresses stole the show (rightly so) added creative detailing to die for. Check out the pleated fish tail and red border finishing of the gown.

Karolína Kurková in Marchesa/ onsugar

Our ultimate fav! This is how you make an entrance. The model kept her hair and makeup minimal to allow for the teal floral print creation do all the talking. This volume in interesting cuts and feminine folds was definitely made to steal the limelight and it did!

Picture Perfect

Rihanna in Stella McCartney/  hausofrihanna

Simply elegant, a toned-down Rihanna rocked simplicity with style in this figure-hugging Stella McCartney ensemble. The crop top off-set with the regal high neck and long sleeves paired with a pleated train skirt took our breath away.

 

Blake Lively in Gucci/ fashionbombdaily

An ode to the golden screen, Blake shimmers in this perfectly muted flowing creation by Gucci. 


Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta/ thegloss

As we expected, Jessica comes red carpet clad in a ball gown cut but made it a chic one with this contrasting black and white by Oscar de la Renta.  

Missed The Mark

Shailene Woodley in Rodarte/ becauseiamfabulous

Young girls should have fun with their fashion, but not with pieces that look like you've cut up your mother’s curtains!


Lupita Nyong'o in Prada/ usmagazine
 

Can’t believe our eyes but the new fashion darling, Lupita Nyong'o brought the drama, but fell short of the wow factor in this Prada tribal-inspired number. 

Power Couples

David & Victoria Beckham/ onsugar.com

A picture perfect poster for ‘less is more’. Flawless in this strapless gown from her own collection, this smart cookie knows you don’t need frills or fuss when you’ve got eye-candy like David on your arm.

Charlene Theron & Sean Penn/ media4.onsugar.

Charlene killed it in this Dior strapless black and white gown. The drama of the train paired with the contrasting colour palette made us swoon.

Jay-Z & Beyoncé Knowlesibtimes

Both in Givenchy, Beyoncé surprises in this demure but sultry black peekaboo beaded ensemble. We love the plunging neckline and dramatic lips to boot.
