MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed

May 6, 2014

Celebrities came out in full force for fashion’s biggest night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala, also known as the Met Gala. This year the Ball was in New York, the city that never sleep. Last night he saw celebrities guests return to a more glamorous dress code. With a dress code of ‘White Tie and Decorations’ for this year’s ball, in honour of the Met’s newest exhibition, ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’, we all were looking forward to some top high society frocks and tails.
Meanwhile a number of designers stood out as the night’s favourites: Stella McCartney, Oscar de la Renta’s, Miuccia Prada, Prada or Miu Miu creations

On a night that there were some real ups and downs, here’s the Best and Worst Dressed at MET GALA 2014.

Emmy-Rossum-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Emmy Rossum Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedJust fabulous colour and floral print from actress Emmy in this Carolina Herrera gown.

Kendall-Jenner-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Kendall Jenner Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedKendall Jenner was the model ingenue in a very pale pink corseted fishtail bespoke dress by Topshop, no less. The back-combed hair gives this a subversive spin a la 90s film Heathers.

Balek-Lively-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Balek Lively Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedBlake always does old-school glamour well and this pink sequinned Gucci dress worn with a 40s wave didn’t disappoint.

Benedict-Cumberbatch-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Benedict Cumberbatch Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst Dressed1Benedict in a Ralph Lauren Purple label black tux tailcoat. How white tie should look. That is all.

The Best Dressed Couples

David-Beckham-and-Victoria-Beckman-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed David Beckham and Victoria Beckman Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedIt was a case of classy and understated from Victoria, in her own cream design, and David Beckham in Ralph Lauren. We can’t help wishing Victoria would drop the dark eye makeup though.

Kim-Kardashian-and-Kanye-West -Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst Dressed1Kim looked very pretty in her teal Lanvin dress which suited her colouring and Kanye rather suits tails too. It wouldn’t set the world alight but nice to see them prove their doubters wrong.

Beyoncé-and-Jay-z-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Beyonc   and Jay z Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst Dressed1Queen Bey played it safe in this rather predictable sheer sequinned black Givenchy wrap dress that was more Grammys than Met Gala. We do like the face net though – and Jay-Z’s white tux.

Worst dressed

Katie-Holmes-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Katie Holmes Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedKatie Holmes was a bit of a disaster, from the custard yellow shade of the Marchesa dress, to the unattractive creasing and general pirate wench styling.

Lea-Michele-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Lea Michele Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedWearing Joseph Altuzarra, Lea Michele looked a little Dynasty-gone-wrong in her glitzy gold dress with high split and that ageing up-do. Wrong dress, wrong event.

Rita-Ora-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Rita Ora Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedRita Ora looked a little like a drowned mermaid in her gold Donna Karan Atelier design. The wet look hair, strange strapping round the arm and blinged up bodice didn’t quite work. And don’t even get us started on the shoes.

Lupita-Nyong’o-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Lupita Nyong   o Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst DressedWe really wanted to love Lupita’s chain mail Prada dress with nude bodysuit, but just couldn’t do it. Perhaps without the jewelled headband and matchy-matchy accessories this could have worked. But, proof that even the best can get it wrong.

Kristen-Stewart-Met-Gala-2014-The-Best-and-The-Worst-Dressed  MET GALA 2014: The Best and The Worst Dressed Kristen Stewart Met Gala 2014 The Best and The Worst Dressed1Kristen’s Chanel dress with sequin top and layered feather and sheer tulle is perfect for her but doesn’t quite fit the dress code. It would have worked better for last year’s punk theme. There’s no denying the exquisite detail though.
