MET Gala 2014 Red Carpet

Karolina Kurkova in MarchesaKarolina Kurkova in Marchesa

Ah the MET Gala. The only night in the world where you can find this many stylish people from the fashion world %90 of whom never manage to dress up according to the theme and %100 of the world population never cares.

This night always make me think that designers have their favorite celebrities just like parents have favorite childs and they dress up their stars in artwork whereas they giftwrap the ugly ducklings (meaning: not very famous that year). How else can you explain the fact that the most glamourous (Karolina Kurkova) and the most hideous (Katie Holmes) dress of the night are both Marchesa gowns? Or that Oscar de la Renta sweeped the stage with so many statement gowns and deemed that taffeta nightmare suitable for Claire Dane?

One other reason this night’s my favorite night of the year is it’s when everybody is equally opinionated about very opposite judgements. For example: half of twitter land thought Lupita Nyong’o‘s style streak has ended and that she looks wrong on every level whereas I think she’s making a statement and being brave on the one night you have the license to be as freaky as you want. Or I found Kim Kardashian‘s Lanvin dress prom like (all the while appreciating her toned down style make over) whereas people praised her for her elegance.

Though there are some looks that don’t require no argument: like Beyoncé looked breathtakingly sexy while stealing all the spotlight and Olsen sisters really are the queens of the fashion world and no one can hit it like they do. Or Topshop DO make some seriously sick gowns and Stella McCartney‘s girls won the night.

Looking at previous years and 2014, I humbly deduced that Valentino and MET people do not get along well; comparing last year’s extraordinary Anne Hathaway look and this year’s Maggie Gyllenhaal disaster. Same goes with Dolce & Gabbana, I honestly believe they are burning with rage about the court order for their tax evasion and dressing Kate Upton like that is their revenge.
