Met Gala 2014: Favorites and Failures

I’m back…and bring you a review of the fashion from the 2014 Met Gala! The Met Gala is a event I look forward to observing every year. I was curious what look Anna Wintour’s “white tie” demands what produce. Some guests pleasantly surprised me, while others fell short. Let me know if you disagree with choices and whose look you loved the most.

Favorites

Hailee Steinfeld in Prabal Gurung - If only all 17 year olds were this classy!

image

Suki Waterhouse in Burberry - If you read this and said, “WTF is Suki,” please know that she is one of the hottest models out there right now. Bradley Cooper is lucky to call this lady his girlfriend.

image

Karolína Kurková in Marchesa - No surprise that a Marchesa dress would make it in my favorites. Many observers had mixed feelings about this dress, but I appreciated that this was not a dress that could be worn to another fancy function. 

image

Greta Gerwig in Olivier Theyskens - While on the simpler end, I’m a sucker for architecturally-nspired dresses.

Failures

Honestly, it was hard to narrow these down. So many fashionable opportunities were missed and instead produced disastrous ensembles. 

Cara Delevingne in Stella McCartney - Cara is arguably the hottest model in the business right now (have you seen her eyebrows?!). Given that she could wear anything by any designer, this is a disappointing choice. No Cara, you are not so much cooler than everyone else that you can wear pants to a Gala. #fail

image

Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte - I don’t even know where to begin with this dress. It looks sad…maybe reflective of Dunst’s current acting career? Just saying…

image

Shailene Woodley in Rodarte - Rodarte fail #2 of the night. I know Shailene is all into natural “herbs” and the outdoors, but this is too literal. 

image

Elizabeth Olsen in Miu Miu - The only thing I can think of when I see this is slutty ice skater. Anyone else?

image

Here’s to hopes for an even better Met Gala next year.

From the Emmys to the Office

While I loved lots of gowns on the red carpet at the Emmys this year, the yearly struggle arose as to how to translate these gorgeous gowns into something I can wear and afford.

I channeled the styles from some of these gowns when searching for work appropriate attire. Fortunately, I had lots of great options to choose from via Dorothy Perkins. Even better, all of the tops below are on sale and cost less than $40. That’s something my pay check can handle.

How are you bringing red carpet style into your everyday life?

Items in Set: Blush sculpted embellished top ($35); Ivory embellished top ($37); Blush sleeveless pussybow blouse ($29); Blush bow back dip hem sweat ($20)
