Ah…the Met Ball–the Oscars of Fashion. Personally, I loved this year’s theme –celebrating American couturier Charles James, and encouraging ball gowns and bustles galore. I’m sharing 3 of my favorite looks below – categorized by ‘Most Exciting’, ‘Most Appropriate’, and ‘Best in Show.’
MOST EXCITING: Emma Stone
It’s not easy to pull off a head-to-toe hot pink look with red hair…and on top of a red carpet. But Emma Stone blew me away in her Thakoon ensemble, finished with gorgeous metallic makeup and accents. Her look was exciting and unique– and definitely stood out amongst a sea of debutante-worthy gowns.
MOST APPROPRIATE: Sarah Jessica Parker
Sure, it’s over-the-top, but it’s the MET BALL. Given this year’s theme, it’s absolutely perfect. And only SJP could pull off this decadent Oscar de la Renta creation, complete with a red John Hancock.
BEST IN SHOW: Hayden Panettiere
I love a look that isn’t afraid to embrace ‘pretty.’ Classic ball gown with a deliciously modern pastel twist. I love this Dennis Basso gown paired with an effortless updo.
