If the first Monday of May then Met Gala, the Oscars of the fashion world if you will. The theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, and I have to say celebs 9most of them anyway) did everything to dress appropriately and impeccably. Seriously, this is the best selection I’ve come across so far, and even though I didn’t have everybody (including the most hyped/admired) here, it’s worth to give it a check out.
Bee Shaffer in Valentino. I think I’m not going out on a limb here too much, when I say the whole inspiration is came from the latest Valentino Couture collection. Love this gown, the matching clutch and socks. 🙂
Amal Clooney in Richard Quinn. I wouldn’t say this is very Catholic church inspired, or I’m missing something, but Amal looks gorgeous nonetheless, wearing this beautiful half gown by upcoming designer (with the Queen’s blessing nothing less) Richard Quinn.
Diane Kruger in Prabal Gurung. I mean look at her, but on the other hand she probably would look great in a trash bag too.
Frances McDormand Anne Hathaway in Valentino. Case in point; Valentino Couture dresses sporting by fresh Oscar awarded actress Frances McDormand and gorgeous Anne Hathaway. Those headpieces are really put the icing on the top.
Greta Gerwig in The Row. In theory this dress shouldn’t work, but it does here (the tailoring, the colours the whole thing really) even if the Olsen twins most likely didn’t have this particular occasion and theme in head. It would be nice to have something gold around her neck though, but I’m probably a nip-picker.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in vintage Paco Rabanne. Speaking of the Olsen twins, here they are in all their glory doing what they do the best; wearing oversized unique vintage clothes.
Zendaya in Versace. If this not the best interpretation of Jeanne d’Arc I really don’t know what is. From the hair to the details on the dress this is divine.
Blake Lively in Versace. Or should I say the best dressed of the evening? How amazing does she look? I mean, she is Blake Lively, but wearing something this grande with such ease is truly remarkable. And Versace is not even among my favourite designers.
Lily Collins in Givenchy. To be honest, I’m not sure about that red tear drop, but I guess she wanted a drop of strong reference along with a bit of colour, so I shut it. Also, everything else is so very nice. I’m especially amazed by the tailoring of this dress.
Kate Bosworth in Oscar de la Renta. Again, not so much true Catholic reference, although it’s very (princess-y) bridal, but the dress is beautiful, so is she, so here she is.
Who is your favourite?
