The 2015 Met Gala: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Hi All!

The 2015 Met Gala took place last night and it did not disappoint. In fact, I think the fashion this year was the best I’ve seen in a really long time.  It was a gorgeous, fun mix of good, bad and crazy looks. Thank you Katy Perry and Solange Knowles for taking crazy chances and not showing up in your typical, perfect cream puff dresses.  Well done!  And Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez – thank you for being the most beautiful creatures on Earth!!!  #girlcrush

Here are my favourite looks for your viewing pleasure!

    LOL – I loved your roundup! I have to agree with most of your picks. Rihanna, Keri Russell, and Janelle Monae are my faves. Gabrielle Union wasn’t adventurous, but she looked stunning.

    Shiny peanut butter. Ha! And I almost like SJP’s.

    • May 5, 2015 / 11:06 am

      HAHAHAH! I feel the same way about SJP. Good on her for taking that “risk”.

  2. May 5, 2015 / 1:15 pm

    Can I just say… Joe Manganiello .. after I saw him I don’t think I payed attention to anything else

  3. May 5, 2015 / 1:29 pm

    Only o e that appealed to me was Janelle Monae. The rest to me looked hideous. And don’t even get me started on that thing Sarah Jessica Parker was wearing on her head. WTF?!

    • May 5, 2015 / 1:44 pm

      HAHAHAH! Love Janelle Monae – she’s so fresh and original! Poor SJP. Don’t get me started on that thing on her head.

    Sorry but I have to disagree about Beyonce, it was all too much haha, but did you see Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, they looked fierce!

    • May 5, 2015 / 1:43 pm

      Haha! I would never wear a dress like Beyoncé’s but only she could wear something like that. She looked like a caramel golden dream. I can’t stand Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. To me, they look like ghoulish little old ladies. No thanks! LOL!

      • May 5, 2015 / 1:45 pm

        Haha I think that’s why I love them, they’ve gone from cute Tweens to these gothic moguls. I didn’t mind the dress I think it was the hair it just seem too much, but she is Queen B for a reason Lol

  5. May 5, 2015 / 1:46 pm

    I agree. Bey’s hair was ridiculous. As for MK and Ashley, I do completely respect their business acumen. Amazing!

  6. May 5, 2015 / 4:39 pm

    Anne Hathaway & Beyonce are my number ones.
    Wish I could have seen more of Rihannas outfit.

    • May 5, 2015 / 7:32 pm

      I agree! I wanna know what’s under that fab yellow cape/coat! Did you know that she apparently googled Chinese Couture and found that coat that was made by three Chinese women and took two years to complete???? DANG.

      • May 5, 2015 / 7:40 pm

        I read that somewhere too!
        I said lord….now you DEFINITELY could have shown it off more…

        • May 5, 2015 / 7:50 pm

          Hahahaha!!! God. Rihanna is just….*speechless* ….too beautiful.

  7. May 5, 2015 / 10:50 pm

    I liked Kerri Russell and Karolina Kurkova. Of course I also would have loved to see the inside of Rihana”s cape, Let me know if you find out!

    I didn’t watch the Met Gala but I did enjoy your recap on it, pretty entertaining including the comments.

    I love Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Union, and the D&G looks the most.


    • May 9, 2015 / 11:05 am

      Thanks Asa! I didn’t monitor it closely, just the aftermath. Lol!

  9. May 11, 2015 / 12:49 pm

    Zendaya had my favorite look that night! She always dresses so age appropriate but still looks absolutely beautiful and just sexy enough to go overboard… Like Kylie!

    • May 11, 2015 / 1:39 pm

      Haha! Kylie could learn a thing or two about being a lady from Miss Zendaya. She did look absolutely beautiful that night!

  10. May 13, 2015 / 7:42 am

    i think Kerri Russell and Gabrielle Union looked the prettiest. They weren’t very adventurous, but they looked lovely.

  11. May 14, 2015 / 11:47 am

    If I was going to the Met gala, I’d definitely be there to play, so I don’t understand when people go and do not dress the part. You are going to the Met Gala, not a wedding! Have fun with it! Yes, I definitely loved a lot of the looks, especially the over the top ones.

    • May 14, 2015 / 2:14 pm

      I think a lot of celebrities are egomaniacs and just want to look the “best” out of everyone, hence the somewhat boring, ultra perfect gowns… Not enough of them have the self-confidence to do something fun, which is a shame!
