met ball best dressed/red carpet re-cap

so, the fashion industry always goes a bit wonkish on met ball night and it can sometimes take years for me to find the inner beauty of the most cutting edge looks. this year as no exception. i think i was expecting some 1940s lady-like splendor, given the theme. it’s clear that, in so hoping, i totally forgot that this is where fashion starts . . . and anything this freshly pressed has a stronger flavor than the canned, off-the-shelf version we experience back home. my worst dressed list is a mile long. (why? why?) but there were some stunners. here are my votes for best dressed:

Georgia May Jagger in Thierry Mugler

georgia may jagger in thierry mugler. best dressed, hands down.

Alexa-Chung-met-ball-2014-Nina-ricci

alexa chung in nina ricci. a definite favorite for all its lady-like splendor while being exceptionally modern

Emma-stone-met-ball-2014-thakoon

emma stone in thakoon

rihanna-met-ball-2014-Stella-McCartney

rihanna in stella mccartney

suki-waterhouse-met-ball-2014-Burberry

suki waterhouse in burberry. i love this because it, too, is modern – yet it strikes me this dress could have also been in a lead-out in 1959

Blake-lively-Ryan-Reynolds-met-ball-2014

blake lively in gucci premiere with ryan reynolds

Giovanna-Battaglia-met-ball-2014-dolce-gabbana

giovanna battaglia in dolce & gabbana

Reese-Witherspoon-met-ball-2014-Stella-McCartney

reese witherspoon in stella mccartney. i tried hard to find a picture of her without this smirk on her face. apparently, she wore it all night.

Olivia-Munn-met-ball-2014-Diane-Von-furstenberg

olivia munn in diane von furstenberg. because i love yellow on a brunette.

Gisele-met-ball-2014-balenciaga

gisele in balenciaga

Kate-bosworth-met-ball-2014-stella-McCartney

kate bosworth in stella mccartney. agreed she is too thin but she does look amazing. perfect blush tone for her skin.
