New York City’s party of the year took place on Monday night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The show “China: Through the Looking Glass” set the theme for this year’s Met Gala and socialites and A-list celebrities turned out in full force on the red carpet. Here is our Editor-in-Chief’s selection of the best dressed of the night.
The Met Gala 2015: Best Dressed
My favorite look goes to actress Chloë Sevigny’s J.W. Anderson ensemble—this take on deconstructing the Chinese costume is done in such a stylish way.
Although Uma Thurman went off the Chinese dress code, she looked as fabulous as a 15th century Ming vase in this Atelier Versace dress that complemented her sculptural figure and emerald earrings.
Diane Kruger has proved time and time again that she can do no wrong when it comes to the red carpet; she looked scrumptious in the embroidered pant and bustier by her go-to brand Chanel.
A lot can be said about Sarah Jessica Parker’s daring style, take this H&M dress that looked too busy, but one thing is certain—the fashion powerhouse knows how to play with clothes and have fun. Extra brownie points for this incredible Philip Treacy custom-made headpiece.
Georgia May Jagger offered us Miss Saigon à la plage and we loved it. But what stood out even more than this fresh take on chinoiserie was Alessandro Michele’s embroidered jacket, which made me want to snap it up off his back and wear it to the upcoming haute couture shows.
Anne Hathaway’s fluid gold, hooded Ralph Lauren dress was a divine sight—this is a look that should be emulated at weddings in the Middle East.
Sienna Miller merged Spanish and Chinese influences in this show-stopping embroidered matador costume by Thakoon, with cleverly placed tassels as a wink to this year’s theme.
Justin Bieber’s Balmain embroidered jacket, belt, and suede pants were on point. The teen idol looked great in this daring outfit. Is there a womenswear version as well?
Emma Roberts is gaining serious red carpet cred and proved once again that elegance lies in simplicity. This Ralph Lauren emerald green dress and its accessories made me very happy.
No one does cute better than Alexa Chung. The length of her Erdem silk dress paired with her Manolo Blahnik teal-colored kitten heels, her beautiful spring makeup, and simple bun were a breath of fresh air on a very ornate red carpet.
