What They Wore: Celeb Looks from Met Gala 2014

What’s more important – adhering to a dress code or bringing something fresh to the red carpet? Last night at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, some celebs decided to pay homage to the celebrated American designer Charles James, while others chose to wear something exciting instead. No shade to James, but after seeing one too many taffeta-clad celebs, I cheered when I glimpsed Lupita Nyong’o’s Prada amazingness. Sure, it wasn’t exactly inspired by Charles James, but it was fun to look at, and if anyone could pull off the bejeweled net dress with feathers, it’s Lupita. Same goes for Kirsten Dunst’s Rodarte Star Wars gown – amazing, and probably not the most appropriate for that particular theme, but still…so cool! Another look I couldn’t resist last night was Chloe Sevigny in Kenzo, which was probably much too modern for last night’s theme, but I loved it all the same.

But it wasn’t solely the rebels that caught my eye, I absolutely adored Liu Wen in a Zac Posen stunner (which I just got to see at Holts last week!), Emmy Rossum in a floral Carolina Herrera gown, Giovanna Battaglia in an 0ff-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana, and Hailee Steinfeld in a very theme-(and age)-appropriate black, white, and pink Prabal Gurung gown.

Mostly though, I was underwhelmed with last night’s red carpet looks. My favourite Style Fille Diane Kruger looked washed out in pale blue (though Joshua more than made up for it!), SJP disappointed in a messy Oscar de la Renta, Johnny Depp came dressed as Colonel Sanders, Kate Upton, who isn’t exactly a high-fashion darling, looked frumpy in a Dolce & Gabbana gown, and the rest of the lot just looked…been-there-wore-that.

What do you think of last night’s Met Gala red carpet? Which celebs got it right in your opinion? Share in the comments!

Oscars 2012: Emma Stone vs. Nicole Kidman

Back in 2007, Nicole Kidman wore arguably one of the best Oscars gowns ever. It was a red Balenciaga dress with a dramatic bow, and she looked gorgeous in it. Fast forward to 2012, and to lovely Emma Stone in a gorgeous Giambattista Valli gown…which I loved, but seeing how similar it is to Nicole’s iconic look, I had to ask. Who wore it best? Whose dress do you like best? Did Nicole do it better in Balenciaga, or is it Emma’s look that is red hot in your books? Take the poll below, and let me know!

Emma or Nicole?

Style Fille: Ginnifer Goodwin vs. Emma Stone

After poring over the numerous People’s Choice Awards (which admittedly I don’t watch) celeb photos, my two fave outfits belonged to Ginnifer Goodwin and Emma Stone. Both looked gorgeous, stylish, with a loud pop of color. But who wore it best? I do realize that the outfits are completely different, but what I want to know is which one is more your steeze? I think I’m team Ginnifer…but I kinda really love both. Take the poll below and let me know what you think.
