Eamonn's Chaos To Couture - Gala Recap


[I know this post has already been done my Khol, but like she said, that's her opinion, and I would like to give mine]

Monday 6th of May was one of the most fashionable nights on the fashion calendar, the MET GALA. All the stars were out in support of their chosen fashion designers to pay honour to this years extravagant theme; ‘Punk: Chaos To Couture’. Each year, I get super excited about streaming the red carpet event live from my bedroom, watching some of the world’s biggest models, celebrities, and fashion designers grace the unnecessary long steps into the exhibition room to where the exciting event is taking place, but hey? The red carpet is the most exciting moment of the night.

Honestly, I was quite disappointed in the majority of the celebrities joining the eagerly anticipated event of the year, for instance; Kristen Stewart, if possible this year’s theme was made for her; edgy, fresh and punk, all things Stewart is. And of course, Nicki Minaj – I know she is trying to transcend from a kuku-doll to a well respected female rapper, but once again, this could have been her year to pull out all of the stops, but unfortunately, she had to settle for this incredibly tacky Tommy Hilfiger, and to be quite frank; she looks more ghetto than “punky”.

Rooney Mara wore this outrageous costume gown from Givenchy by the man of the night, Riccardo Tisci. Mara was one of the first to hit the carpet along with Tisci on her arm, and I must say, I wasn't disappointed. Everything about this dress is phenomenal, although if I were to nitpick I would much rather the sleeves to be at least two inches shorter.

In total, I give this look 9/10











Cara Delevingne has one of the world’s funniest and sweetest personalities, and her outfit at this year’s Gala makes her the perfect girl. Cara was dressed head-to-toe in Burberry which wasn't too surprising. Miss Vogue’s debut covergirl looked all things edgy and sexy in this floor length studded dress. Cara accessorised her look with Dominic Jones and Eddie Borgo jewellery, but unfortunately, I thought the clutch bag was too much for the entire look. I thought it was too big and too bha! Although, Delevingne could have added a little mirrored cuboid clutch to improve her look. Hair & make-up, beautiful.

In total, I give this look 9/10
Another beauty at the affair, Beyoncé Knowles. Beyoncé was one of the chairmen of the event alongside fellow designer Riccardo Tisci, who is the wonderful creator of Queen B’s look. Beyoncé received a lot of criticism about this look – but I must say, am I the only one who actually likes the look in its entirety?  Well, I must say, there could have some adjustments made to the styling side of things. After a long time of examine B’s look, I found a few flaws that could have been prevented. The belt I love, but wouldn't it look much better if it was slimmer; as it'll make her waist look slimmer? Beyoncé and Kim K both sported the same trend wearing matching gloves, which honestly, I did not like. I thought it was too much as both their looks were quite busy anyways so adding gloves wasn't necessary.

In total, I give this look 8/10

    4. That anon comment was unnecessary, I didn't read it really, but it seems like a shorter, well-rounded best dressed list - someone who doesn't want to read Khol's large post can just look at this for some of the night's best outfits.

      A re-cap if you will.

  2. I loved Beyonce's outfit as well, yet I wasn't fond of the boots and gloves at all. Jennifer Lawrence's outfit was my favorite of all, but she looked like she was going to the Melbourne Cup. Not that it's a bad thing.

    1. Honestly, I loved it. This look would have been perfect for her if she didn't have her baby bump. Also it would have made her look much nicer from the shoulders upwards if it was all open instead of closed! (:

    2. I hated it also. She looked like a flower bush. The theme was punk, not garden couture. lol

  6. I don't really like watching such shows as they take a long time & I get bored of them, but I like seeing the pictures in magazines or the fashion highlights television edition of 'hits & misses' or 'do's & dont's'. I think that's why this blog is interesting it covers both reality fashion & stardoll fashion. BUT I didn't like the Kim Kardashian outfit, I saw the picture earlier in week in an entertainment website & thought 'What on earth is she wearing?' The style of her outfit may be nice but there is too much going on in the fabric, I think she wanted to take the attention away from her figure by wearing that fabric but that's a miss not a hit.

    FashionnGirl, I thought there was also another blogger called fashionman?
