Met Ball

How to Dress // Emma at the Met Gala

There were more gorgeous, glamorous ball gowns at the Met Gala last night than I could count {not really, I could if I wanted too, I swear!!} but we’ll get to those later. Right now I want to talk about little miss Emma Stone, because how chic does she look?

Her rather low-key Thakoon two-piece might be a shade too casual for some, but I adore the simplicity of it. And her messy side braid is the perfect style to complete the look.

I love how accessible this look is {arguably that is not the point of the Met Ball – but it is the point of this blog!!} it would be an amazing get-up for a summer wedding, or even a fancy brunch, don’t you think?

Last Night at the Met…

I love fashion, I love theme parties, so it goes without saying that the Met Galla is kind of my jam. I’m sure you’ve heard – the theme this year was PUNK: From Chaos to Couture. Imagine all the biggest starts of film & fashion all together and punked-out. Even I had a mini-punk period when I painted my nails black and dyed purple streaks in my hair – SO anti-establishment…

Some embraced the theme:

SJP in Giles Deacon & a Philip Treacy headpiece, Anne in vintage Valentino, Madona in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Nina in Monique Lhuillier, Cara in Burberry, Gwen in Margiela
Others paid tribute…
Ginnifer in Tory Burch, Rooney Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Dakota in Rodarte, Hailee in Donna Karan, Allison in Joseph Altuzarra
and then a couple just ignored the theme entirely. {but still looked fab!}
Jennifer in Dior, Gwyneth in Valentino
