This year brought forth some rather awesome, and rather not so awesome garments to the red carpet. With a Chinese theme many carpet goers embraced it with ease. There were of course some errr, interesting choices, unsure whether that hinders or helps you, yet some pretty cool stuff endeavoured to catch my eye…

The Knockouts
My Favourite by far had to have been Emily Ratajowski’s custom made Topshop dress. Now it ain’t no Haute couture, but something about the texture and pattern sing to me. Hate me if you want. I like it. Alongside Em-dizzle was sexy as hell Joan Smalls in her eye-busting, hip hugging purple bonanza gown. These two definitely outshone and overtook the competeti- I mean, fellow celebs.

The Questionables
I am all for a touch of experimentation. So here’s a list of those who tried. *Slow clap.

1) Sarah Jessica Parker, she’s a fire starter all right – her love for headwear dates way back to the set of Sex and the City, and still remains apparently.sarah-jessica-parker-met-gala-2015-best-dressed

2) Anne Hatheway is wearing a golden hood. That is all. (Ralph Lauren)rs_634x1024-150504161506-634.Anne-Hathaway-Met-Gala.jl.050415

3) Solange Knowles (Giles Deacon)rs_634x1024-150504163114-634.Solange-Knowles-met-gala-red-carpet.jw.5415

Oriental Beauts
These girls aren’t theme spoilers, nor did they fail in spoiling my afternoon. Below are the pretty legit looking Chinese themed princesses of the Met Gala 2015.
