The best dressed at the Met Gala… and the worst

New York City welcomed A-listers galore last night as they honoured America’s best-known couturier, Charles James and kicked off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s spring season. The stars arrived in stunning designer gowns, styled with sky-high heels and topped off with diamonds…
With an abundance of embellished gowns and some celebrities going all out in head-to-toe sequins, the red carpet was glistening (literally). And while some stars looked elegant and chic, there were others who didn’t…
Sarah Jessica Parker (see above) made a grand entrance in this stunning ivory and black Oscar de la Renta gown. The style icon finished off her look with glamorous accessories that complemented her beautiful statement gown.
Victoria Beckham and model, Georgia Jagger also channeled into the monochrome trend, rocking classic black and white. Victoria looked elegant and chic in one of her own designs, while Georgia opted for a more revealing, plunging gown. Even though she broke a vital rule (don’t show both your legs and cleavage), we have to say she pulled it off and looked utterly fabulous.
Kim Kardashian emphasised her desirable curves in this strapless Lanvin number. We can help you to recreate your very own Kardashian look in this stunning Coast dress. Simply style it with matching heeled sandals and you are red carpet ready.

All eyes were on the stars of Gossip Girl last night as they graced the red carpet in captivating goddess-like gowns.
Work the embellished look in one of our fabulous gowns, like Leighton Meester who wowed in Emilio Pucci. We suggest this glamorous purple Phase Eight dress or this elegant No.1 by Jenny Packham dress, both of which would look fabulous paired with some classic gold sandals.
If you fancy the style of Leighton’s co-star, Blake Lively who looked beautiful in Gucci, this stylish gold number from Phase Eight is exactly what you’re looking for. Styled with sophisticated gold heels, you’ll be certain to nail the metallic trend this season.
If you were invited to such a prestigious event like the Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala – what would we see you wearing? Would it be something heavily embellished or a timeless classic?

Whatever you do – do not attempt to work strappy, gladiator-esque sandals with a glamorous gown. Also avoid wrapping fabric around your arms (even if it does match your dress).
We also advise avoiding a dress that looks like a pair of curtains from the 60s (unless that’s the kind of look you’re going for – but we sincerely doubt it). The stunning Maggie Gyllenhaal usually looks classic and elegant, but last night at the Met Gala, she certainly made the worst dressed list, as did Rita Ora…
