2014 Met Gala

Better late than never right?  I waited with baited breath on Monday to see all the gorgeous gowns at the 2014 Met Gala and I was not disappointed not at all.  However, Tuesday I was in major study mode for finals, which lasted until yesterday so I wasn't able to really think about all the beautifulness until after I finished my last final.  After some moving and relaxation (and extreme happiness about being done) I put together my lists about the Met Gala.  Today I'm bringing you my 12 Best Dressed (I couldn't narrow it to just 10), the Runners Up, and the dresses that I am just unsure about.

1. Blake Lively in Gucci
Blake is absolute perfection.  This whole look is completely amazing.
2. Emma Stone in Thakoon
I love how Emma took a risk and went with the crop top trend, I think it really paid off and that she looked great.

3. Gisele B√ľndchen in Balenciaga
This dress is beautiful on Gisele, and I love how the green earrings paired with it.
4. Rachel McAdams in Ralph Lauren
This gown is simplicity at its best, and the color looks fabulous on Rachel.

5. Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney
The color of this gown is gorgeous!  I feel like we haven't seen much of Reese very dressed up lately and this dress was a stunner.
6. Amber Heard in Giambattista Valli
Long sleeve gowns and neutral colors are two of my favorites right now, and Amber combines the two for a lovely look.

7. Suki Waterhouse in Burberry
I feel like this dress is such a fun pick, and I really love the big skirt!
8. Jessica Alba in Diane von Furstenberg
Jessica Alba could not get more gorgeous and looks so good in this gown.

9. Selena Gomez in Diane von Furstenberg
I love how this whole look comes together, the simplicity of the dress and the bigger jewels looks wonderful.
10. Leighton Meester in Emilio Pucci
I am completely obsessed with this look, I feel like Leighton took a risk by going a bit bohemian and it was amazing.

10. Anne Hathaway in Calvin Klein
Red is Ann's color and this is another example of how a sliver of stomach can be done in a tasteful way.
11. Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham
She looks so pretty here in her own creation, and I especially like her beautiful gems.

1. Kendall Jenner in Topshop
I love this look on Kendall, but there's just something about it that didn't make it Best Dressed material for me.  I really like the shape of this dress, but I think it's the material  of it that I'm not a fan of.
2. Arizona Muse in Zac Posen
I hate her hair here!  If her hair was done differently this would have been one of my top looks because the dress is stunning.
3. Lily Aldridge in Michael Kors
Lily looked gorgeous here, but I think I would have liked this better if her hair was down.  The Met Gala is definitely about the whole look for me.

1. Hayden Panettiere in Dennis Basso
I like the silhouette of this gown and I like the print, but not together.  I'm also not a fan of this print for this event.
2. Kate Bosworth in Stella McCartney
I can't put my finger on it, but there's just something that makes me iffy about this look.
3. Karlie Kloss in Oscar de la Renta
I think that Karlie looks so glam in this look, but I think the very bold print on the gown is what's throwing me off.

What are your thoughts on the dresses of the night?!

  1. I didn't include Amber Heard at the top of my list, but that dress is beautiful.

    I think the color of Kate Bosworth's dress is great for her. I almost feel like it would have looked even better on someone else. Ha!

  2. I have to say, my favorite was by far Arizona Muse!! That Ralph & Russo dress is STUNNING on her!! Love all of these picks too! Victoria Beckham looks amazing. xo
