My Favourite Met Gala 2015 Looks...


I know I've already done a post for today but I just wanted to get a quick post done about this year's Met Gala whilst it's still pretty fresh in everyone's mind. 
I love the Met Gala - it's a chance for celebrities to really showcase their love for fashion and step out of their comfort zone. This year's theme was China:Through the Looking Glass and to be honest, I was a little disappointed. Everyone (apart from Rihanna, Lady Gaga & Solange) just seemed so...tame.
Despite everyone's pretty safe options, I do have a few favourites...

Gigi Hadid
I freakin love Gigi Hadid. She's an absolute bombshell, I mean, look at her! She's so stunning and even though it wasn't very adventurous, I loved her red Diane von Furstenberg embellished gown. It's pretty demure with the added sexiness of the thigh-high split and the deep neckline. It's a beautiful dress. 
I love how she also kept her makeup very understated and pretty - her fresh-faced look matched the simplicity of the dress perfectly along with her billowing, blonde waves.

Zendaya
Now, I knew who Zendaya was before this year's Met Ball but I didn't realise how capable she was of completely slaying. This may be my favourite look of the entire event!
Her Fausto Puglisi dress is girly yet still has that daring edge to it. I also love how she carried the sun motif into her headpiece, and the train was to die for - she just pulls the entire look off so well. 
Another fan of the simple makeup look, Zendaya kept it modest with a brown smokey eye and a nude lip. With her long soft-wavy locks held back by that stunning headpiece the girl looked beautiful. 

Cara Delevingne
We all know Cara is my love. Donning the jumpsuit for the second year running, she kept it low key in a black Stella McCartney number with cut-outs and let her oriental inkings do the talking.
Cara spent 11 hours prior to the event having Bang Bang (her fave tattooist) decorate her whole upper body with elaborate (temporary) cherry blossoms, oriental flowers, birds and other Chinese themed artistry. 
The girl knows how to get attention - well, she is good friends with Rihanna who wore a pizza? omelette? Gregg's pasty? to the event. 
Cara's makeup included a very dramatic dark, smokey eye and a nude lip paired with a sleek bun. 

Jessica Alba
I feel Jess was a little overlooked this year. Her black bandeau Kenzo gown with a blue tiger/red tree print was gorgeous. It suited her so well and the thigh-high split added a little boldness to the otherwise rather sheltered design.
I also freakin loved the shoes! They're so simple and classic and don't distract from the dress but still pull the entire look together - great choice!
Her makeup was a little more gallant - a blue toned shadow look with a brown lip. She kept her bob looking sleek and straight. 

Honourable mentions go out to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Queen Bey, The Olsen Twins, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Beckinsale, Sienna Miller, Kate Hudson, Allison Williams, Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence.

Yeah, I just listed pretty much everyone else...
