Met Gala 2015: Best Dressed Picks

Last night, celebrities, models, and designers made quite the presence at the 2015 Met Gala. This annual event is always held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Exhibit and is known among the fashion crowd as the most inventive and extravagant event of the year. With this year’s theme being ‘Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion,’ the anticipation over how the attendees would honor this theme through their ensembles felt higher than the Great Wall prior to the big arrivals. Of course, the guests on the red carpet did anything but disappoint and the fashion looked even more imaginative and awe-inspiring than ever!

Some common themes that I spotted on the red carpet included headpieces, capes, embellishments, risqué cutouts, and LOTS of red. For the most part, these trends added some extra “wow factor” to the amazing outfits at the event, making my choice of favorites extremely difficult! However, after long contemplation, I finally was able to pick out my top ten outfits from the Gala. Check them out below and see if you agree with my standout looks!

I can’t decide how I feel about the dress- her and the dress are beautiful but it may be a bit too risqué for my taste..
