Ooooooohohoho, the Met Gala last night did not disappoint. Those. Gowns. !!!!! I can’t wait to show you my top picks – they were so easy to choose!! And my worst picks were pretty easy, too, although some teeter-tottered for me…. There was a sea of truly stunning black-and-white gowns, and perhaps it was because there was a sea of them, but none of them jumped onto my “Best” list (sorry I’m not sorry?). Here’s what wowed me on the red carpet:

Best Dressed

Blake Lively in Gucci

 Jusssst wow. Blake is an Old Hollywood goddessss! The hair, the ruby-toned jewels, the exquisite gown that fit her to perfection…. Enough said. Hands-down my #1 pick.

Liu Wen in Zac Posen

 Can we say Dra-ma. The teal color really popped on the red carpet, and the structure of this Zac Posen ball gown was fantastic!! Ball gowns can go ultra girly, but the tarantula-like legs the skirt-pleating evokes, creates a bit of creepy mystery, adding a really cool, edgy vibe. I loveit, loveit. Well done Zac and Liu!!

Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa

Oooo, I could talk about the structure of this Marchesa gown for dayyyys. Exquisite. And the white floral print on navy?! Bold, gorgeous, genius.

Taylor Swift in Oscar de la Renta

What a lovely way to leave a crowd! Simple and pretty in the front, and then HELLO!! when ya say, “goodbye!” Stunning. Always leave ’em talking, Tay!

Karlie Kloss in Oscar de la Renta

The simple, clean lines of this Oscar de la Renta gown are beautiful, but what bumped Karlie to my “Best” list are those leather gloves! Perfection.

Love this glam ‘gram of besties Tay & Karlie pre-gala ;)

So much beauty! So much glam! And thennnn we start spiraling downward…. But only a little – it wasn’t a horror show.

Worst Dressed:

Emmy Rossum

 I absolutely loooooove this floral Carolina Herrera gown!! But I absolutely haaaate how it was styled. The jewels, the hair, the makeup. Yuck. Wah, wah.

Katie Holmes

Oy. Katie looks like Scarlett O’Hara during that time when she was working the Wild West saloons, and got in cat fights every night. Wrong story? Right description.

Lupita Nyong’o

So, I know that there are fashion peeps out there that adore this look, and I truly commend Lupita for going bold and stepping way outside that Met Gala box, but I have to be honest with myself here. I love her courage, but this just looks a littttle too crazy – I found myself thinking it was both crazy-amazing, and just plain crazy. If Pocahontas were an Irish flapper….

See? They weren’t so bad! I’ll kindly remind you that it could always be worse…

See ya at the next red carpet, Loves!
