An annual ball for the unveiling of fabulous Costume Institute exhibits, the Met Gala has been one of the most coveted nights for fashion & celebrity to collide in a most fabulous way since 1948. This red carpet event is held at none other than the infamous Metropolitan Museum, and you can bet that every star does his or her best to wow the crowd! This year’s theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture,” and we were definitely witness to some of the edgiest looks to ever hit a red carpet!

Donna Karan Darlings: Emmy Rossum was flawless in bejeweled ivory and makeup to marvel, while Hailee Steinfeld wore an embellished fit ‘n’ flare that was simply perfect with her clever cat-eye!



Feisty in Floor-length: Anne Hathaway not only slayed in her “static” Valentino gown, but she debuted fierce locks that gave her that rocker edge. Allison Williams wore Altuzarra that seemed to melt into the crimson floor, and while it may not be for most, I found her brilliant & bewitching!

Katie Holmes was definitely one of my absolute favorites. She looked nothing shy of stunning while floating upon the red carpet in a white Calvin Klein masterpiece. Elegance has never looked so good!

Cut-out Cuties: Emma Watson never fails to take our breath away, this time looking as chic as ever in a sexy Prabal Gurung dress! Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr bared her bold side in sleek black Michael Kors with daring cut-outs!

Studded Sirens: Cara Delevingne was a Burberry babe in a plunging neckline adorned in spikes, a sultry smoky eye, and a punk rock side part. Jessica Alba was stunning in an embellished Tory Burch dress with studs, strategic cut-outs, and an up-do to adore!

So who was the show stopper of the incredible Met Gala? The always-fabulous Blake Lively, looking seriously gorgeous in a Gucci gown that was delightfully detailed from top to bottom! Silky layers cascaded effortlessly from a beautifully beaded waist, falling gracefully to the floor. From her choice of dramatic earrings that just grazed her shoulders to her sultry sleek pony, Blake was utter perfection in a sea of incredible creatures!

What an event! What a theme! Who took your breath away, ladies?
