Met Gala Ball 2016

It’s not all killer wasps and sticky shit around here you know. Sometimes there are pretty dresses too.

Yesterday was the supremely chic Met Gala Ball and of course all our favourites (and Rita B-ora) were out and about in their high-tech finery. I believe the theme was Technology this year, hence all the metallics.

Here are a few of my favourite looks from the night:

Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein ~ Rachel McAdams in Valentino ~ Willow Smith in Chanel

I love The Smith Family and both the kids really slayed last night. Lupita’s dress is so dreamy and the colour is just perfect for her *heart eyes emoji*, while Rachel is pure gothic babe through and through.

Solange Knowles in David LaPort ~ FKA Twigs in Atelier Versace ~ Alexa Chung in Thakoon

Nobody could ever accuse Solange of playing it safe and I love this pop of solid colour on her. She’s always interesting and my favourite Knowles sister (I love you too Bey). FKA should have ditched the date because she looks increds and this jumpsuit on Alexa is pure perfection.

If I ever attend the Met Gala (next year?), you can be sure I’d wear a jumpsuit too.

Zoey Deutch in Dolce& Gabbana ~ Jemima Kirke in Chanel ~ Emma Stone in Prada

I’m not sure Zoey got the memo about the theme but when your dress is this beautiful does it even matter? I think not. Jemima looks like an angel in this stunning nude gown and – hello Emma Stone! Loving everything about the hair, make-up and frock here. Bravo, love. Bravo.

Special props to:

Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton ~ Queen Bey in Givenchy ~ Florence Welch in Gucci

I bloody love the pretty frock and DMs look. Jen looks like she’s channeling a very 90’s aesthetic and I’m here for it. Bey smashes it every time but I like that she’s been a bit risky here (in the wake of Lemonade, was it going to be any other way?) and Florence, that opal metallic is heavenly.

There has to be a special mention for Solange’s after party look which nails sports luxe meets sci-fi chic perfectly. I’d wear the shit out of this in a darker colour:

Girl Power, yo

So that’s me mooning over some gorgeous couture, hope you liked it. You can check out the rest of the fashion and Vogue’s Met Gala coverage here.

Any favourites of your own? ❤
