Once again, the Met Gala took place last night, with the theme this year being “China: Through the Looking Glass”.
A tricky one, even for the selected few who are invited to the Gala every year. We expected amazing jewellery, Chinese Hanfu inspired outfits, maybe a slight oriental feel when it came down to makeup and hair…
…but we can’t help but feel slightly confused about some of the outfits that were showcased last night.
SO here goes… Thackerays Best and Worst dressed of the Met Gala 2015
Once again, Queen B kills it. Along with her other curvy friends (Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli by Peter Dundas and J-Lo in Versace) Beyonce sports a barely there, crystal and stone dress by Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci. After making everyone wait 2 hours to see her on the red carpet, she came out with a bang (a very sparkly one) and blew everyone away and out of the competition. To make her outfit even better, Jay-Z’s reaction is priceless! Queen B rules again!
Model Karolina Kurkova and actress Emily Blunt (below) opted for the more traditional style, in line with the nights theme.
Karolina’s Chinese-inspired Tommy Hilfiger mini dress with a keyhole cut-out at the bodice is striking, and looks beautiful against her pale skin and blonde hair. It’s a good job her legs are so long or else she would’ve blended into the carpet!
Emily’s outfit has got to be one of the favourites of the night, she looks effortless. The soft pale blue looks amazing with her hair and the embroidered navy blue cape completes her outfit, creating a regal look.
Rosie, we love you. How does she look amazing in everything?
This Versace dress looks like it was made for her, slinking to every curve of her body (Serious girl crush). The shoulder strap makes the dress comply with the theme of the night subtly, but also elongates her neck. The sultry look is completed with slicked back hair and dark lips.
OH RIRI… what happened? She certainly has gone all out for the fashion event of the year, on the other hand she has only given people an opportunity to make (cruel) ‘memes’ of her outfit (scrambled egg, pizza, sponge-bob). We’ve got to give Rihanna some credit though, as she was one of the few celebrities who wore a dress made by a Chinese couture designer (dress by Guo Pei).
The past few years Sarah Jessica Parker has always made a… statement (remember that feather Mohawk?) but this year she took it up a notch. Her custom Philip Tracey headdress sure stole the attention, and similar to Rihanna, caused a bit of an uproar on social media as it gave many people the opportunity to get a little bit creative with her outfit.
Oh Grimes… did you forget that it was the Met Gala?
Is that why your bag is also substituting for a make-up box?
This outfit is just a complete disaster, good luck next year?
