For those who arent in the know, the annual Met Ball (Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City) is one of the most important red carpet affairs. A star-studded event, celebrities parade fashion's finest among carefully selected guests, hand-picked by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour herself.
This year saw a great selection of amazing punk-inspired dresses, as well as quite a few misses. As many a fashion website has also mentioned, quite a few guests seemed to have overlooked the memo of the theme of the night. All in all, it was a fashion frenzy and Instagram was a great source of drool-worthy photos!
Here are my personal top 10 favourite dresses of the night:
|Cara Delevingne's Burberry dress is definitely my fave - what a way to mix punk and glamour!|
|Taylor Swift in J. Mendel is definitely a close second - but I've been loving Taylor's style for a while now!|
|Have always thought Balmain's designs were gorgeous from seeing so many of them via Tumblr. This top (yes, she does the same top-as-dress thing that I do!) looks stunning on Kate Bosworth!|
|Anne Hathaway looks striking in this Valentino gown - this collab is definitely a winner!|
|Constance Jablonski's luxurious black & gold Wes Gordonin gown costs a reported $35,610|
|The gold mohawk Philip Treacy headdress definitely stole the show for Sarah Jessica Parker!|
|Gisele Bundchen's off-shoulder black & metal Anthony Vaccarello dress is somewhat of a punky classic!|
|Loving the armour-inspired Rachel Roy dress worn by Stacy Keibler!|
|Model Chanel Iman also rocking a J. Mendel dress - not so punky but still a lovely sight!|
|Now I know this supposed to be about Miley Cyrus' Marc Jacobs dress, but the resemblance to Kate Moss' dress is to crazy to ignore! They're both rocking it though!|
|Even Kanye doesnt look happy with her outfit choice! The Givenchy frock has been compared to curtains, a sofa and even Mrs Doubtfire!|
|Surprisingly: Beyonce. Totally unflattering Givenchy (again!), from any angle.|
|Ashley Olson: What is that?!|
|Madonna - Just too much going on here, but too little bum covering!|
|A bit too try-hard there Jessica Biel!|
