2015 Met Gala Gowns
Posted on May 05 2015
Being based in NYC, we are inundated with gorgeous fashion and design. From the streets to the subway to the red carpet, it all happens here. But our favorite event of the year is when the Metropolitan Museum of Art throws a red carpet gala for fashion's favorite stars. This year's theme? China: Through the Looking Glass. Gorgeous Asian-inspired gowns were accompanied with stunning headdresses, trains, and embroidery galore.
The clear showstopper of the event was Rihanna in a gorgeous canary gown that she claims was made by hand by a Chinese woman over the period of two years, that Rihanna found online. The internet has since claimed her look was inspired by an omelette or pizza. We aren't so sure about that, but we are sure that her look was spot on with the theme of the event.
Rihanna's embroidered gown was complimented by a headdress that topped off the look beautifully- but she wasn't the only one to try a headdress at the event.
As if inspired by Rihanna's yellow train, Kristin Wiig was spotted in a baby yellow, one-shouldered number.
Sarah Jessica Parker adhered strongly to the Chinese theme of the event, with a traditional-inspired gown and a flaming headdress with an impressive crimson tassel.
Georgia May Jagger also took to the theme in her embroidered traditional-inspired dress. The wrap style is not only a great nod to traditional Chinese garb but it is also an extremely flattering way to show off her figure.
Chloe Sevigny went for a similar look with heavy embroidery, as did many stars at the event.
Beaded embroidery was a huge trend at the event- as was the cape. Emily Blunt sported a lavender gown and black cape with beautiful beaded embroidery.
Emily Ratajkowski took a page out of Emily Blunt's book by also wearing a delicately embroidered number.
Also in gorgeous embroidery is Justin Bieber. After his Calvin Klein campaign, this young pop star is really making a name for himself in the fashion world as he stunned the paparazzi in this dragon embroidered blazer. Take a peek at the Floral Dragon Top by Anna Scholz so you can play along with the trend.
The god of all things fashion, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, arrived wearing a cherry blossom inspired beaded number in crimson- the apparent "it" color of the season.
Another crimson dress donned by Zendaya, again with delicate beaded embroidery in a stunning sunshine motif that carried out to her headdress and bracelet as well.
Another beauty in crimson, Karen Elson hit every single trend. Not only did she wear the color of the red carpet, she also sported a stunning headdress, a beaded embroidered bodice, and a full tulle skirt- which is trending on and off the red carpet.

Another full tulle skirt was worn by the iconic musician Alicia Keys, in popular shades of the season: navy and white.
Another girl in navy, Solange Knowles turned heads in her pleated and printed number.
In a more modern take on culture, Katy Perry and Madonna pose for a photo together in street-art inspired gowns.
Miley Cyrus arrived in a studded number reminiscent of the punk themed 2013 Met Gala.
Like Miley, Beyonce Knowles arrived in a studded gown that, though stunning, may also not quite fit the theme. But a sheer, beaded embroidery number in a barely-there shade did seem to fit the trend on the red carpet amongst the celebrities known for showcasing their curves.
Again in a sheer, beaded number, Jennifer Lopez arrived in the color of the day: crimson. She showed off her assets like fellow curvy celebrities Beyonce and Kim K.
In a beaded sheer gown, Kim Kardashian arrived with a beautiful feather train following her.
Feathers, trains, embroidery, and crimson colors were all the rage at the event. We are anxiously awaiting to see if the trends trickle down to everyday life.
