Met Ball 2014 best looks, who improved from last year and who should fire her stylist?

The Met Ball 2014 is over and we had plenty of time to analyse every guest’s gown by now. So, after giving it a lot of thought, here are my winners for this year’s edition. So here was the dress code

main-met-ball

BEST DRESSED, I really hesitated between Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta Sarah-Jessica-Parker-1

and Suki Waterhouse in Burberry. I finally will go with Suki as SJP won last year and Oscar de la Renta was an the go to choice for this kind of dress code. Also, I’d rather wear my clothes tags inside than on the dress.

Suki-Waterhouse

Some ladies who were smack in the theme and flashed gorgeous gowns were

BEAUTIFULL OUTFITS BUT MISSED THE POINT

Caea Delevingne and Stella MAc Cartney in Stella Mc Cartney. BTW, Miss Mc Cartney shouldn’t wear her hair in such a tight bun, it makes her looks old and ghostly

Gisele was gorgeous as always in Balenciaga but really missed the point

gisele-vogue-6may14-pa_bWell between all the beautiful dresses that we saw on the catwalks, the vintage dealers and the couture houses museums, some guests should definitely fire their stylists. This is what I would have worn should I had been invite. A beautiful Vintage Dior Haute Couturec01b

The MET Ball 2014

A year ago, the Metropolitan Museum hosted the so anticipated VOGUE Met Ball, celebrating “Punk, from chaos to couture”. We would have thought that guest would turn up in their best black, piercings and safety pins attire but I was extremely disappointed. Exceptfor Sarah Jessica Parker who showed up in a magnificent Gilles Deacon ballgown paired with the most incredible Philip Treacey mohauk and plaid Christian Louboutin knee high boots Image and Cara Delevingne who mastered the Punk essence and managed to make it look super chic in a studded Burberry black gownImagethe  rest of the guests chose pretty over punk. The most ridiculous of them being the hostess herself, Mrs Anna Wintour showing up in a flowery Chanel dress saying that PINK was the true colour of punk????? Come on Anna, really????? Unknown Or may be the super pre go Kim Kardashian who pulled numerous strings to finally get the precious invite and walked the red carpet into what looked like your grandma’s old couch fabric. Sorry Ricardo Tischi but it was neither flattering , nor Punk. kim_kardashian_kanye_west_met_gala_2013_costume_institute_met_ball_punk_chaos_to_couture_red_carpet_celebrity_photos_18ogiov-18ogirm   So what did the guest wore this year for the MET 2014 Gala honouring designer Charles James. Um sorry, who?????????? We’ll forgive you if you haven’t heard of him, but he is a hugely influential New York designer who created elegant ball gowns in the 40s and 50s. James was close friends with Cecil Beaton, was highly respected by the likes of Christian Dior and was often dubbed ‘a great friend of the French couture.’ Here’s some of his work main-met-ball And that’s a giant flower sculpture inspired by Charles James designs.MetBallFloralDisplay_2014_5 The big bummer about this year’s edition  is that there will be no live coverage. we will have to wait for newspapers and bloggers to post online pictures of the event. So here are the pics I have gathered so far. We know that Michelle Obama got to cut the exhibition ribbon, next to Anna Wintour this morning wearing a Naeem Khan green and white frock. michelle-obama-anna-wintour-costume-center-ribbon-cutting-w724 Here is the invitation we were all dying to get in our mail box. Unknown SJP is wearing an Oscar de la Renta in the perfect Charles James’ tradition. And because she was just so tired of saying she wearing ODLR over and over, she had it written on the tail of her gown.Sarah-Jessica-Parker-1 Anna Wintour is wearing a rather unflattering arlequin dress with really ugly unlatching shoes CS61329582Mandatory-CreditKrissy Teigen has exposed a little too much of her anatomy, exposing herself to nasty comments from my favorite Fashion Police host, I can already here Joan Rivers comments.Chrissy-TeigenFlawless gown and styling for Suki WaterhouseSuki-Waterhouse Same for absolutely unknown to me Alicia Quarles, but she’s got taste and an excellent stylist.

Alicia-QuarlesKim Kardashian, recent Vogue covergirl, will obviously be there.  Let’s hope she’ll get a better stylist this time.

Follow Vogue on Instagram to get the full coverage but next year, Mrs Wintour, grant us plebeians a full live coverage please.
