Lunedì sera i riflettori erano tutti puntati su New York per la notte glamour del mondo della moda: dimenticate gli Oscar, i Golden Globe e i Grammys, perchè il vero affare è il 
MET Costume Institute Gala!
Monday night (4th May) the spotlights were on NYC, for fashion’s most glamorous night: forget the Oscars, the Golden Globes and the Grammys, because the real deal is
 The MET Costume Institute Gala!
Ogni anno il Metropolitan Museum of Art celebra l'inaugurazione dell'ultimissima mostra del Costume Institute, con un galà esclusivo pieno star, dove l'unica regola è “dress to impress”.
Tendenzialmente non ricevi un invito a meno che tu sia:
1) sulla lista dei migliori amici di Anna Wintour
2) estremamente famoso
3) ricco abbastanza da poter pagare il biglietto d'ingresso a $25,000
Every year the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s newest exhibition, with an exclusive star-studded gala, where the only rule is “dress to impress”.
You won’t normally get an invitation unless:
1) you are on Anna Wintour’s BFF list
2) you are extremely famous
3) you are wealthy enough to afford the $25,000 ticket
L'anno scorso il MET ha celebrato il genio di Charles James, ma questa volta si rende omaggio ad un intero Paese, la Cina: l'influenza della cultura cinese nella moda viene onorata grazie ad una esclusiva mostra dal titolo “China: Through The Looking Glass”.
Secondo Anna Wintour, questa è la mostra più sontuosa mai allestista dal Costume Institute, data anche la collabiorazione con il dipartimento di arte asiatica del MET.
Vogue magazine realizzerà inoltre un documentario sulla mostra e sul galà annesso: non vediamo l'ora di vederlo!
Last year the MET celebrated Charles James's genius, but this time it pays homage to an entire country, China: the Chinese cultural influence on fashion is honored, thanks to an exclusive exhibition, “China: Through The Looking Glass”.
According to Anna Wintour, this is the biggest exhibition ever staged by the Costume Institute, given the partnership with the MET’s Department of Asian Art. 
Vogue magazine is also going to publish a documentary about the exhibition and the gala: we can't wait to watch it!
Agli invitati è stato richiesto di vestirsi a tema, nonostante l'alta probabilità di insuccessi nello styling...
The guests were expected to dress according to the theme, even though the probability of seeing a few styling missteps was fairly high...

E' il momento dare un'occhiata al tappeto rosso! Scopriamo chi ha davvero reso giustizia al tema :
Time to look at the red carpet! Let's find out who really did this theme justice: 

*UPDATE: Models red carpet here*


Fan Bingbing in Chris by Christopher Bu 
Best dressed of the night

Rihanna in Guo Pei Couture
The best she has ever looked at the MET, plus this is the most iconic look from this year.
A real masterpiece from Chinese designer Guo Pei: 50'000 hours of work, but it was totally worth it!

Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier 
The Masters of Sex's actress looked incredibly chic: the dress fits perfectly with the theme without being outlandish.
Good job to stylist Ilaria Urbinati.

Sarah Jessica Parker in H&M
Yes, Ms Carrie Bradshaw can upgrade H&M: a flame-wielding Philip Treacy headpiece is all she needed.
Philip Treacy

Good job also to these ladies: 
Sienna Miller in Thakoon , Empire's star Taraji P. Henson in Balenciaga, and Emily Blunt in Prada 
Taraji P. Henson Empire

Lady Gaga in Jason Wu
I mean, it's Gaga at the MET gala, what did you expect?
Until she hides those sparkling platforms under the coat, I will call this couture.

Gong Li in Roberto Cavalli
Pure elegance: that was her night,(as she was co-chairing the event with Anna Wintour and Jennifer Lawrence) she didn't let us down.


Zendaya in Fausto Puglisi
My favourite fashionista did it again! 
It might be her first gala, but she and her stylist, Luxury Law, perfectly know how to make a fashion statement.
Zendaya style

Amal Clooney in Maison Margiela Couture
Just look at the bodice: a true interpretation of an ancient Chinese soldier armor.

Olivier Rousteig and Justin Bieber in Balmain
The creative director of Balmain styles Justin Bieber...
ok, how can you go from Rosie Huntington Whiteley to...this? 
Met Gala 2015

Solange Knowles in Giles
A very interesting and artistic piece, but it looked better on the runway.

When the dress ain't enough, it's up to make up, hair & accessories to save the day!

Emma Roberts in Ralph Lauren
scream queens

Kate Hudson in Michael Kors

Diane Kruger in Chanel Couture

Selena Gomez in Vera Wang
MsD hated it, but I don't mind it: too bridal maybe.
Met Gala 2015

Ok, I know they are expensive, but they don't look like all.

Rita Ora in Tom Ford

Anne Hataway in Ralph Lauren
Met Gala 2015


Jennifer Lopez in Atelier Versace
Look, a dragon!
That's real Chinese inspired couture....
jennifer lopez versace

Kim Kardashian in Roberto Cavalli
Las Vegas + Chinese aesthetics + Kim Kardashian.
Sorry Kim , I let you finish, but Kanye had the best look of all time!

Beyoncé in Givenchy Couture
She managed to look stunning and diasappointing at the same time! 
No justice to the theme, no effort, wrong location and makes Kim look better.

Do we get Chinese vibes here? Nope, but I can always excuse that old Hollywood glamour.

Kate Beckinsale in Diane von Furstenberg

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy

Sophie Turner in Burberry

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior Couture

Dakota Johnson in Chanel Couture
A silver mini dress for the Fifty Shades of Grey star and a Chanel limited edition Matryoshka bag.
fifty shades darker


FKA Twigs in Christopher Kane 
You know what love is? 
To wear a really bad dress and have your boyfriend by your side no matter what.
Ps: Robert Pattinson looks very good here.
Met Gala 2015

Katy Perry in Moschino
It's funny because this might be one of her best red carpet look, but yet she is totally out of place. This dress takes inspiration from '90s Hip Pop era: It fits the theme perfectly I guess.
jeremy scott moschino


Miley Cyrus & Zoë Kravitz  in Alexander Wang
A punk/rock dress. 
Perfect for the Met Gala. 
Like the 2013 Met Gala “Punk: From Chaos  To Couture”.
