Who Wore What: Met Gala 2014

By on May 7, 2014

This year’s Met Gala saw a diversion from last year’s all out punk theme, and a return to a more formal dress code, Anna Wintour presented Charles James: Beyond Fashion. But along with White Tie, there was also a motif of decoration. The ladies were able to attend to both the embellished and formal themes. The belle of the ball, Anna Wintour, arrived first and stole the show wearing Chanel Haute Couture (see below). The biggest red carpet event of the year has once again commenced and I am happy to share WHO WORE WHAT. From Prada to Stella, and Zac to Karan – everyone looked beautiful. Only those who have an undying love for couture and custom can see the beauty in every dress, even Lupita’s gown.

It seems the designer of the night was Oscar de la Renta, with big, beautiful formal gowns worn by icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Allison Williams, Amy Adams, Ivonka Trump, Taylor Swift, and Karli Kloss.


Surprise or not, the “It” couples absolutely killed it. The men looked handsome and dapper as usual, and the women in floor length and (some) sparkly gowns. Johnny Depp took it all the way with white gloves and a cane along with his Ralph Lauren Black Label tux. Beyonce and Jay Z are also looking flawless.

Spring has arrived, with these lovely ladies looking sensational in big gowns characterized by spring palettes and florals.

It’s hard not to look phenomenal in a sleek floor length gown. No matter the colour, these women know how to pull off the sleek and sexy look. Florence Welch was definitely one to stand out, by wearing a butterfly cape atop her slim Valentino gown.

Simple yet elegant is how I would describe these women. Though different silhouettes, styles, colours, and adornments, these ladies opted for a monochromatic outfit, and it was definitely the right choice.

And of course, how could we forget these lovely gentlemen. Although they couldn’t necessarily be as creative as the women with the theme, they still all looked as handsome and well dressed as always.
