Best and Worst Looks from the 2014 Met Ball

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. It also serves as an opening celebration for the institute's annual fashion exhibit.

The most prestigious night in fashion was held on the 5th of May, 2014 in NYC. The theme was White Tie And Decorations, an ode to Anglo-American designer Charles James & tickets to the event went for $25,000.

 

At the very top of our best dressed list has got to be Rihanna. Stunning in a white crop top and long skirt by Stella McCartney, Riri showed us yet again how eclectic her style is. I mean, just last week we were dropping our jaws to her green lipstick and weird hairdo to the iHeartRadio music Awards.

Beyoncé wore a sheer black Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci dress with a plunging neckline and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. I particularly wasn’t wowed with this look because it’s very similar to the Ricardo Ticsi dress she had on at the 2012 Met Ball and frankly I’ve gotten a bit tired of seeing Beyonce in neutral sheer clothing. Even though I was expecting something fresher and more spectacular from Queen Bee, she looked amazing still.

 

Blake Lively, 'the designer’s dream', looked totally exquisite! The Gossip girl star wore a shimmery custom-made Gucci Première gown. Her shiny golden locks and perfect pout completed her stunning look.

 

Sarah Jessica Parker , Hollywood’s sweetheart  and one of the ball’s co-chairs, wore a custom-made Oscar de la Renta gown. She was a such a lovely sight to behold. Her classic up do and satin gloves were the perfect finish.

 

Gisele looked like a million bucks and then some in a lacy black Balenciaga gown. The super model killed it with her emerald earrings and effortless hair/makeup.

 

Selena Gomez, a newcomer to the classy event stunned in a DVF gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The songstress looked all grown-up (she always does) and totally breathtaking in her slinky low-cut number.

 

Reese Witherspoon wowed in a hot pink Stella McCartney gown. Hollywood’s funny girl usually puts a smile on our faces with her outfit choices and last night was no different.

 

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were easily one of the best dressed couples at the vent. Both clothed by Lanvin, the newlyweds were a truly beautiful sight. It can definitely be said that Kim has redeemed herself from the backlash surrounding her look to last year’s Met ball.

 

Hailee Steinfeld wore a gown by Prabal Gurung with Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery. She sure was a beauty in black white. Her full flared dress was an awesome choice.

 

 

Lupita Nyong'o,People Magazine’s Most Beautiful woman arrived wearing Prada from head to toe. Our darling Lupita terribly missed it this time though. Everything about the get-up looks funny. We all have bad days, so I guess Lupita kicking off our Worst Dressed list for the 2014 Met Ball makes her human afterall.

 

Jessica Alba wore a Diane von Furstenberg dress and clutch. This dress does nothing for her stunning figure. At all. The colour, the fit and the style are just all wrong. She might as well as thrown on her grandmother’s drapes. I love her but this was an epic fail.

 

Charlize Theron wore a Dior Couture gown with a tuxedo jacket, Jimmy Choo sandals and Fred Leighton jewellery. I think the length of her gown was just not right. And there’s something about her pose that makes it even worse. Her sandals do nothing for this outfit and she really could have gone without the tuxedo jacket.

 

Kristen Stewart , Twilight sensation and the current face of Chanel , went for a dress from the fashion house’s spring/summer 2014 couture collection. I’m sorry but this was an epic fail. I can barely even describe what a mess this dress was. Scoring her high points however was her gorgeous fish tail braid and sexy orange hair.

 

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen both wore vintage designs – Ferre and Chanel respectively ,from Lily et Cien in LA. I thought the idea of wearing vintage clothing was to channel a past era with a fresher and modern vibe. That clearly wasn’t the case for these twins. They look like they fell straight out from a history textbook.

 

So what look was your best of the best and worst of the worst?
