The Met Gala 2015 - Best Dressed

Hello lovelies!

So it’s that time of year again. From Chanel, to Prada to Topshop, celebs including – Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence and Beyoncè pull out all the stops on the red carpet of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. The annual extravagant event attracts the Hollywood elite, and is nicknamed the ‘The Oscars of Fashion’ for a good reason.  
As much as I wish I could have been there, sadly like many others, I’m sat in my pyjamas scrolling through all the pictures of last night and drooling over some of the gorgeous designs. The event theme this year was ‘China Through The Looking Glass’ and many guests paid tribute to Chinese designers, as well as a range of wonderful creations from the world’s most famous fashion houses.
I’ve selected a few of my favourite outfits from last night and there seems to be a recurring theme; Red, White and Shimmer. Many opted for shades of crimson and cream, however all managed to create different looks. I loved the ladies that looked effortlessly chic in understated styles, and who let their dress do all the talking. 

Gigi Hadid was the perfect lady in red. The Diane von Furstenberg crimson colour compliments her hair and skin tone so well, and her natural beauty shines. 
Kate Beckinsale just oozes Hollywood elegance, and last night she resembled that of an Oscar statue. This lady never gets it wrong. 
Although Anna Wintour may have hit a bum note, her daughter Bee Shaffer looked elegant in this classic, Asian-inspired dress. I love the delicate cherry blossom design and the flattering neckline.
Selena Gomez glowed on the red carpet in this white, Vera Wang creation. I love the subtle oriental touches to the dress and the matching floral crown in her hair. 
I love the simplicity of Wei Tang’s Burberry Prorsum dress. It's a simple and flattering design but if you take a closer look, the dress is covered in diamonds and sparkles. She was accompanied by Burberry designer, Christopher Bailey.
Vanessa Hudgens looked adorably stylish in this custom H&M creation and netted headpiece. The dress is embroidered with Swarovski crystals and she looked the perfect little princess.
Amanda Seyfried makes a contrasting change in this Givenchy Haute Couture design, adding a refreshing white element to the sea of red. It’s not noticeable in the picture, but her dress is embroidered with beautiful lace flowers.
Sophie Turner made her Met Ball debut last night and was shining in this metallic Burberry Prorsum number. I couldn’t find a picture of Sophie on her own on the red carpet and I’m not surprised nobody would leave her alone. Sophie looks a world away from her Game of Thrones character Sansa, and was resembling a queen herself.
Last but not least, it would be rude not to include Sarah Jessica Parker. Arguably known as the 'Queen of the Met Ball', SJP never fails to impress and goes to great lengths every year to capture the chosen theme in her outfits. This year is no exception. Her outfit is receiving mixed reviews in the press, but I personally love it. Wearing a dress she designed herself with H&M and an amazing headdress by Philip Treacy, SJP did not let us down this year...

What do you think of my picks? Who do you think was best dressed last night? 

Let me know in the comments below! 

More soon,

Helen
