Met Gala 2016 Favorite Dresses

Hey guys! I was taking a break from studying and decided to check out this year’s Met Gala’s red carpet. I love looking at the different dresses and how each celebrity styles them. My mom and I enjoy evaluating each look. We ask each other questions like “would you wear that?” or “out of these, which one do you like the most?” and spend time commenting each look. It’s something fun that I like doing with her haha. Also, I think it’s a good way to check the new fashion trends and maybe get some ideas on what to wear for events/parties. Anyway, as I was looking at the photos from the event, I was inspired to write a short blogpost on my top favorite looks. Let’s begin!

Karlie Kloss

I think that out of all the dresses that I saw, my favorite was Karlie Kloss’ white cutout dress. I love Karlie’s fashion style. Not only in the way she dresses, but in her photos as well, she  looks elegant and manages to to kind of emanate that. I really liked this dress. I think that it has a nice combination of sexiness, femininity, class and elegance. It displays her fit body without looking trashy. Also, that red/burgundy lip was a great choice for the look. The only thing I would have changed is the hairdo; I would have gone for beach waves.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 

The second runner up for the night was Rosie’s greek-like white dress. Rosie is one of my favorite models. She’s always very classy and elegant, yet sexy and trendy. Looking at her photos, she reminds me that, no matter what you wear, if you wear it with confidence, it will show. She literally can have on anything and it seems like she can pull it off. I thought this dress looked pretty on her. I love the combination of two different fabrics and the metallic detail on the shoulder strap. A dress like this one, simple and sober (if that makes sense), needed to be worn with attitude, like Rosie did, or else it may have been overshadowed by other dresses in the event.

Poppy Delevingne

I really, really liked this dress a lot! I love all things boho and this dress proved that you can wear this style and look elegant and formal at the same time. I like the little beaded patterns and details that must have taken such a long time to craft. I love the combination of stones, pearls, and crystals embedded in that sheer/nude fabric. Moreover, I thought her hair and makeup were perfect for this dress and complemented the whole vibe going on. I think she really stood out and, in my opinion, it was one of the most original looks of the event.

I don’t really like long sleeved dresses very much, but Zendaya’s golden sequin/crystal dress was the exception. I love it’s shape, very form fitted and sort of body hugging in the upper body region, but, as it reaches the floor, it becomes loose. It has a short tail, which I thought looked classy. Moreover, I thought that kind of turtleneck (haha I don’t really know how to describe it), was creative and original, like a different take on the usual long sleeved dress. Additionally, I loved her smokey eye with glossy brown lips makeup.

Gigi Hadid

I love Gigi’s fashion style. She looks great at red carpet events and at everyday sort of occasions. This look was no disappointment. I thought her dress was different and stylish. I loved the combination of sheer blueish grey fabric with dark metallic sequins. I thought the color choice suited her blond hair and fair skin. Her makeup was a soft and very natural, which was a great match for the dress. The makeup look didn't overpower or compete with the dark tones and colors, and kind of help achieve a nice balance within the overall look.

What do you think of these looks?? Which ones were your favorites?
