Met Ball 2015: best dressed ladiesFashion & LifestyleNews & Features
As the annual Met Ball commenced and celebrities trickled down the red carpet, we couldn’t help but admire the couture, the jewels and the shoes which graced this star-studded event last night. The theme was “China through the looking glass” which made for some inspiring looks.
A definite trend seemed to set the tone for the evening: sheer gowns. Many stars opted for see-through options, giving the illusion of barely-there dresses, leaving little to our wandering imaginations!
So let’s take a look at the Met Ball’s best dressed ladies.
The blonde beauty stunned in a gold, floor-length gown with see-through detailing. She accessorised the dress with a 1920s-style embellished headdress and a pearlescent, boxy clutch with gold trim. With her hair in a classy up-do and a bold, red lip, Kate was the epitome of classy elegance.
Continuing with the sheer theme, the Kardashian beauty let her curves do the talking in a revealing white, feathered, embellished gown by Roberto Cavalli. She kept her look simple with some diamond pendant earrings, a sleek ponytail and natural make-up.
It was clear the singer had no qualms about going commando in this stunning, sequined, sheer Versace gown. The floor-length dress featured a dragon, highlighting her curves perfectly – the night’s Chinese theme definitely came through in her red carpet choice!
This English rose kept her look simple and poised with a black number from Balenciaga. The trapeze-style dress with an embellished collar looked perfect with a coiffed up-do and a dark lip.
Jennifer Lawrence looked girly and chic in a black and floral number. The cut-out dress from the Dior autumn/winter 2015 collection was perfectly on trend and paired with her relaxed, messy bun, J Law let her natural beauty lead the way.
The bootylicious singer competed with J Lo and Kim Kardashian for the most revealing dress award! Donning a bejewelled custom-made Givenchy gown, Queen B left little to the imagination in this backless number.
Unfortunately, not all attendees were able to get their outfits quite right and some serious fashion faux-pas ensued, here’s our favourite of the worst: we really don’t know what Rihanna was thinking with this duvet-inspired outfit.
