Firstly, I apologize. This blog is delayed. Monday night was when the stars shone and the annual Met Gala, so it was my greatest intentions to have a post up on Tuesday on the matter. Due to exam prep, school, revision and extra curriculars, its up today instead, I couldn't leave it out though-one of the most fabulous events of the year!!
This year was honoring the late, extraordinarily talented Alexander Mcqueen. So I was hoping to see a little more Mcqueen on the red carpet then there was. I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed by the fashion this year, but needless to say there were certainly some very chic looks on the red carpet. Blake Lively looked the bombshell as always in Chanel (on the arm of Karl Lagerfeld non the less). It's not my favourite look of Blake's but she does look stunning, and the detailing and Grecian draping of the dress is just magical. Another of my favourite looks was Mary-Kate Olsen wearing a long, striking Givenchy gown. I've never really been into the whole bohemian look but this Spring I seem to have acquired quite a taste for it a la Nicole Richie. I just love the contrast of the turquoise detailing around the neck and sleeves, tres bien!! And of course, Sarah Jessica Parker who opted to wear Mcqueen. I'd loved her paying honor to this truly great fashion icon. The dress was not something I'd wear but it suited her frame perfectly, although I would have worn the hair a little differently.
Who's was your favourite look of the night??
