I am prepping for a meeting Friday AM so sadly for everyone I can only make this post a quickie. I’d love to go through the Met Ball look by look and give my humble opinion about each one. Luckily I think you can find this sort of project done by pretty much every last blogger out there.
I will say that I was pretty pretty disappointed flipping through the slideshow of last night’s event on The Cut. Far too many guests look straight up scary. What is with the witch-like eye makeup ladies?
For the most part, I found guests to be anywhere from just off to completely off the mark, and those that didn’t offend were pretty darn boring. Despite the overall fail, here are my favorite looks from the evening:
I hate to start with Jay Z and Beyonce because I’m sure they made everybody’s best dressed list. But, for good reason. They both look chic and interesting. I LOVE her veil thingy.
Amber Valetta in Saint Laurent…might just be my pic for best outfit.
I’m not the hugest fan of Amy Adams, but I think her dress was quite a good choice. Not super exciting, but just strong. Well done, Amy.
Nicole Richie. I just love her even though I only give this look a comme ci comme ça.
Here is another lady I love. I think she killed it.
A little hard to see what she has going on, but Florence Welsh always looks very majestic and cool. I applaud what appears to be minimal makeup.
Erykah Badu looking very chic I’d say.
Blake Lively wins for “Old Hollywood Glamour.” Sure she doesn’t ever push the envelop, but who cares, she looks great.
Yes. You with that purple lipstick. Yes. Yes to the whole thing. Mwah (done the Italian way where you kiss all five fingers and blow them out into the air).
Janell Monae…on the mon-ey I’d say. Ba dum dum cha!
Love Olivia Munn. Love the whole getup. Breath of fresh air this one.
I love everything going on here.
Yes. Pefection for Georgia May Jagger.
I have no idea who this is, and I’m not in love with her dress, but I am very drawn to the strength of her face. I just love it. So badass and sexy.
I like this actress. She is impish and I applaud her Bjork-inspired ensemble. Very fun. Very cute. Very wild.
Again I have no idea who this person is, but I love her look. Simple and cool. Chic. Sophisticated. Splendid. Brava.
