Met Gala 2014: Battle Of The Pink

After the disappointed red carpet at last year’s Punk-themed Met Gala I was thrilled that this year’s event was celebrating Charles James the master courtier that really understood drama, sculpture, class, and what makes a great red carpet dress – generally something huge that makes a statement – so I am pleased that the celebs attendees really honoured his vision.

One of my favourite looks had to be Reese Witherspoon in this strapless Barbie-pink Stella McCartney gown. Everything from the colour to the sculptured take on the sweetheart neckline to the way it contoured her body and the slight train, everything about this look is perfection.

If the dress wasn’t enough to make me squeal with excited her Hollywood glamour hair and make-up sure would, the Oscar-winning star was simple flawless, I just loved the matching hot pink lips. I can’t believe that this is Reese’s first time at the Met Gala – this is a great debut look.

 

There were many hues of pink on the night and two came from Stella McCartney, to complement Reese’s hot pink gown, the gorgeous Kate Bosworth looked divine in this dusky pink slinky spaghetti strap dress. Her statuesque model figure really pulls off this great dress, which has sexy little cut-outs under the bust. But as much as I love the dress it is the styling of the accessories and hair-do that I adore the most – I love that she wasn’t afraid to add sparkle!!!

 

Combining an element of both Reese’s and Kate’s looks was Emma Stone who look modern, young and fabulous in this striking-yet-simple custom two-piece pink and magenta, colour-block Thakoon ensemble. What I love is that it isn’t a ballgown, I know that was kind of the theme of the night and this look might not quite have cut it, but for me Emma showed a contemporary look that still honoured Charles James with the flowing wrap skirt. Plus with hair like that she definitely had to be featured – love, love, love!!!

One last pink look that caught my attention was Taylor Swift who wore a custom blush pink embellished satin Oscar de la Renta gown teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. While the front of this gown was exquisite, well it was crafted by Oscar de la Renta and embroidered with gold sequins, pearl beads and rose metallic leaves, for me this gown was all about the drama in the back – check out that fabulous bow and train. Stunning in an Old Hollywood glamour kind of way.

It is hard to choose who wins the battle of the pink, but I think Reese in that stunning hot pink number just gets it. Who was your favourite girl in pink?

The Host: Diane Kruger In Thakoon & Jimmy Choo

Diane kruger host la The Host: Diane Kruger In Thakoon & Jimmy Choo %tagWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the LA premiere of  her new movie ‘The Host’, held at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood

Wearing: A black Thakoon dress featuring sheer panels down the side and accented with floral appliqués and a dandelion print from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with metallic mirror leather two-tone strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Malika’ booties, and Stephen Webster jewellery

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a sexy look – I seriously love it!!! Not only is it sexy, with just the right amount of side boob, I love the flirtiness of the skirt the way it flares out and shows off a little bit of leg with the sheer panel, as well as the exquisitely detailing with the floral appliqués – this is just one gorgeous dress.

Not content with just a great dress, Diane then pairs her fab look with the incredible sci-fi mirrored leather Jimmy Choo booties – OMG – wow. These are so cool and edgy they really make the look fashion-forward as well as sexy. But come on I don’t think anyone other than Diane could really pull off these beauties.

I am so pleased that Diane has a new film to promote – I can’t wait to see more red carpet looks as she takes the film on tour.
