Met Gala Pt. 2

Hello lovelies! As promised, here is my continued coverage of noteworthy guests at this year's Met Gala whose theme was PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Again, there were SO many photos and attendees to go through, and it was extremely difficult to narrow down my focus, so not everyone is here. I'm leaving out ones that really didn't work for me, because there are too many others I want to take note of! Here we go!

 Supermodel Doutzen Kroes wore this stunning leather Theyskens Theory gown with a sheer underlay that emerges from the slit. I love this dress, although many guests settled for simply wearing a black dress and calling it "punk," this Theyskens gown feels like a perfect blend of punk and haute couture.

 Sarah Jessica Parker was the evening's crown jewel. This is how you do elevated, thematic haute couture people! There were so many stars that took risks, many of which fell flat, and even more of which were just trying wayyy too hard. They need to learn from SJP. She knows how to make a statement so effortlessly, and just how much to kick it up for a fashion event. She wore a gorgeous Giles Deacon gown that is tailored to perfection, and a feathered, mohawk Philip Treacy headpiece. Hands down, queen of the night!

 This was just the right amount of skin to show for Emma Watson to have it be a fun dress to see her in. I love her in this Prabal Gurung number.

 Jaime King wore this silk, tailored suit from TopShop, and for me, her headpiece is what really makes this outfit. Although it was black, it was different because she was one of few to wear a suit, and the combination of silk and lace was lovely.

 I just love supermodel Karolina Kurkova's minidress here. Both the color and print of this Mary Katrantzou minidress are fabulous and so fun!

Here is Dakota Fanning showing some skin in this Rodarte dress with sheer cutouts. It's a touch mature for her, but I felt that it was still a lovely gown and it didn't seem as though she was trying too hard. 

 Is Emmy Rossum the most thematically dressed? Perhaps not. But, she does look incredible from head to toe, and that is why I included her. This Donna Karan Atelier gown is simply stunning. The fabric, fit, detailing, all of it is flawless. And she kept the jewelry subtle so as to let her hair and makeup shine, which they did.

 Lastly, here is Olivia Wilde looking like a gorgeous smokeshow. I love love love this outfit. She is wearing Calvin Klein and it is perfection on her. I love the simplicity of the lines, and the fit and tailoring are exquisite. The peek-a-boo crop top is baring just the right amount of skin for the event, and her hair and makeup looks light, ethereal, and effortless. I feel that the effortlessness in this look is the attitude of punk in and of itself - it's bold, confident, and rebellious without trying to be. Take note young starlets, this is how you do it well ;)

That concludes my Met Gala coverage, phewf, that was a lot! There is of course so much more we could discuss about the evening, and I'm happy to do so with any of you via the comments section or facebook page or twitter :)
