The Met Gala 2014
Thanks to a little visit to the vogue.com website, I realised Monday was the most coveted fashion party of the year, the Met Gala in New York with this year’s theme, Charles James: Beyond Fashion. I literally fell in love with some of the gowns worned, first there were the voluminous ball gowns very “Bal des Debutantes”, opened with Sarah Jessica Parker in a gorgeous Oscar De La Renta dress. Kendall Jenner, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Toni Garrn were all in Top Shop as well as Liu Wen in Zac Posen. Tabitha Simmons and Giovanna Battaglia romantic floral Dolce and Gabbana gowns reminded me of “Gone with the Wind” which would have made Charles James himself proud. Then the old Hollywood style which always works (Dita Von Teese in Zac Posen, Olivia Munn in DVF) and “Annees Folles” frocks (Beyonce in Givenchy Couture and Lupita Nyongo in Prada). Dolce and Gabbana also dressed Kate Upton and actress Monica Bellucci. Last but not least, Stella Mc Cartney who was well represented on the red carpet too with ambassadors such as Rihanna, Kate Bosworth, Reese Witherspoon and Cara Delavingne, la creme de la creme!
