I’m going to start the proceedings with the gown that I would have worn had my invite arrived in the mail (Australia post…seriously). Italian goddess, Monica Belucci blew my mind in red lace Dolce and Gabbana complete with matching cape. Drooool. Only very people on the planet can look this hot in red lace. And the fact Monica could make a paper-bag look sexy, it’s a no brainer.
SJP is really born to attend the Met Ball. It is so her bag. And each year, she completely nails it. Resplendant in this magnificent Oscar de La Renta black and white ball gown – she looked like a vision fron an old Hollywood movie. Imagine wearing a dress like this? And don’t even get me started on the train…
Dita Von Teese looked every bit of an old Hollywood bombshell in figure hugging Zac Possen and Van Cleef jewels. I loved the champagne colour of this gown, with its fishtail and red detailing. So va-va-voom.
Now, as you already know Glams, I am very partial to a bit of Naomi Campbell. And I loved this sexy yet demure (a first for Naomi) looking Gatsby number by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. Her body looked utterly insane. Ah Naomi…sigh.
Queen Bey was a classy act to follow in another Gatsby inspired Givenchy Haute Couture, gown by Riccardo Tisci. A seductress as always, with just the right amount of flesh peeking through luxurious, beaded silk. Loved the netting over the eyes. Jay Z also looking the part in a Givenchy dinner suit. These two…
Karolina Kurkova was stunning in a Marchesa masterpiece. She looked so beautiful – reminiscent of a young Grace Kelly from the movie ‘High Society’. This gown was art – the hand-painted print, colour, cut and teamed with Harry Winston jewels – an absolute stand-out.
Charlitze Theron, regal in black and white Dior with Fred Leighton jewels, also looked the part. So fiercly elegant. And let’s be honest – the cape gets me each time. The Sean Penn accessory? Not sold. I’m just…not sure.
And to wrap up my picks of this most prestigious fashion event, I loved the frou-fra and whimsical girliness of Tabitah Simmons in an over the top Dolce and Gabbana gown - a floral fiesta with an impressive train. So grandiose. So Met Gala 2014.
