Met Gala 2015 Best and Worst Dressed

Blogosphere, greetings to you all! Today, I thought that I'd once again unleash my inner judgemental fashion critic and list for everyone the celebrities that I feel either dressed to impress or failed to deliver at fashion's night of nights. The Met Gala is a big deal, so despite the fact that I'm super delayed, I thought that I may as well get in there and grace you all with my judgement. So without further ado, here is my harsh critique . . .

Best Dressed

Reese Witherspoon

I am actually so happy right now. I mean, the girl's 39 (not that you would've guessed it), and her red carpet moments just seem to be getting better and better. Reese has seriously been crushing it this award's season, and her effortless elegance here is no different. Her dress is gorgeous, and she just looks fabulous and sophisticated. Honestly, the whole look is just simply perfect. 

Rosie Huntington

Fashion risks were certainly taken, however they payed off big time. The Met Gala is always a fun event for celebrities to play with fashion and see where it takes them, and Rosie Huntington's dress is just awesome. The structured bodice is super flattering, and the untraditional style is to die for. Normally totally slicked back hair would look a bit severe, however it totally works with the ensemble and adds to the whole slightly futuristic vibe the dress has going on. So all in all, Rosie looks absolutely amazing!

Amanda Seyfried

Once again, another major red carpet success! At first glance it looks simple and elegant, however upon a closer look, it is clear that the intricacy of this dress is just stunning. The lacy look is super pretty, and the halter neck stops the dress from looking too bridal. Luckily, the ruffles at the bottom are not too overpowering, yet there are also just enough to keep things interesting. Basically, Amanda killed it!

Kate Hudson


Kate, I commend you, because you look spectacular! Lots of people wore gold on the carpet at the Met Gala, however there's no doubting that Miss Hudson wore it best. It's sparkly, it's fun, yet it still manages not to be tacky, which is a truly impressive feat. All in all, a definite triumph for Kate!

Dianna Agron

Yes, so much yes! Finally making her way onto the list we have Miss Agron, who managed to look pretty and elegant, all the while totally adopting the theme, which this year happened to be 'China: Through the Looking Glass'. Of course, not many celebrities decided to follow it, but Dianna did an excellent job of playing by the rules while still managing to look awesome and graceful. Pretty much, a total win!

Worst Dressed

Sarah Jessica Parker

I'd like to say that this is obviously just a one time thing, however unfortunately I can't, because this is the second time Sarah Jessica Parker has made it onto my Met Gala worst dressed list (which is saying something considering I've only done two). I'm sorry, but no. Sure, I get that there was a theme and that she was trying to abide by it, however dressing up in a massive dragon head piece is not only super ugly, but is also borderline racist. Seriously, she couldn't think of anything better, or at least more subtle than a dragon? She genuinely looks as if she's designed her whole outfit around the logo of a Yum Cha restaurant. Sorry Sarah, your hideous, slightly racially stereotypical outfit is certainly not a win for me!

Anne Hathaway

Remember earlier how I was saying that lots of people's frocks this year were gold, yet no one could pull it off as well as Kate Hudson? I wasn't lying. Honestly, this is just atrocious. It's got this weird futuristic, intergalactic vibe to it, which yeah, can sometimes be cool, however not done like this. The dress itself is literally a shiny, unflattering, shapeless body bag, making it a truly horrible combination of disco meets morgue, not to mention the utterly stupid hood plonked on top. Star Wars is cool and all, but perhaps she should leave her Jedi apparel off the red carpet. Shame to say, you really missed the mark here Anne!

Dakota Johnson

I honestly do not have the words to tell you how bad this is. Sure, the dress itself isn't an eyesore or anything compared to some of the other frocks that make it onto this list, but seriously, this is the Met Gala, fashion's night of nights, so why would anyone wear this on any red carpet, let alone at this prestigious event?! I don't even know what to say. The actual dress is skanky and tacky anyway, however its inappropriateness for the event is just ridiculous. I can forgive people who take fashion risks that don't end up paying off, but this, this is unforgivable. Dakota, I have no doubt that this kind of attire might have been ideal when shooting 'Fifty Shades of Grey', but please, for the love of fashion, keep it off the carpet!

Chloƫ Sevigny

Ugh, please make it stop! Chloƫ, I commend you for taking a risk and attempting to tackle the theme in way that is not overly stereotypical, but this I hate to say is just awful. The cut of the top is super unflattering, the colours are gross together, and frankly, the entire look just screams unwashed hippie. Once again, the theme is totally on point, however everything else is so far off base that it ruins any valiant attempt to do justice to the night's fashion parameters. Sorry, but no.

Solange Knowles

Honestly, I don't even know. I'm all for quirky clothes and shaking things up every once in a while, but this is perhaps taking it a step too far. I seriously don't know where to look, let alone where to start criticising. Like, what even is this? Is it a dress, or is it an intricate sun visor? I just don't understand! The pattern itself is strange which doesn't help, but when combined with the super odd shape, it's all just too much. Sorry Solange, but, why?

This officially brings us to the end of the list. Hopefully you agree with my criticism as well as my praise, and that this was either somewhat entertaining, or at the very least, got you up to date with some recent red carpet happenings. Til' next time . . .
