MET GALA 2014 STUNNERS AND BUMMERS / by Noel Jean

This years Met Gala theme of the night was a tribute to Charles James, America's First Couturier, and we expected to see bright colors and some over-the-top gowns. Though there were a few that stayed true to this years theme, I must admit the red carpet was a sadly underwhelming. The Met Gala is the Super Bowl of Fashion, and I love seeing the fashion "STUNNERS and BUMMERS" on the red carpet worn by your favorite Entertainers, Models, and Designers. This is definitely one carpet you should stay true to its  theme because if not it just looks like you were attending the wrong event. Check out some of last night's red carpet moments.


I love that these ladies brought the Old Hollywood Glamour to the carpet. Blush tones were popular, and sometimes paired with black and white accents (in Dita's case red) which really made for a feminine, sophisticated and polished look. Modern day Couturier's such as, Zac Posen and Prabal Gurung are definitely staples for fashionistas hitting this red carpet. Well done ladies!

Always one to take fashion risks, Rihanna looked flawless is this gorgeously tailored white Stella McCartney creation. Baring her mid-drift and messy up-do this look is still sleek, statuesque, sexy and reinvents classic looks on this carpet. Who better to mix Rock n Roll and Fashion than Stella McCartney, right? This was definitely one of my FAVS of the night!

Sarah Silverman, is known as a corky, but cute comedian that literally STUNNED me when seeing her  Met Gala ensemble. She looks absolutely gorgeous in this Zac Posen gown. Nicely done Sarah!

Kim K's Lanvin gown was most definitely an upgrade from her last year's tapestry disaster. It was a bit on the safe side, and it looks as though she decided to simplify her look from when she left her hotel to when she hit the red carpet. Seems like she took a note from Coco Chanel herself “before leaving the house, a lady should stop, look in the mirror, and remove one piece of jewelry.”

This by far was the biggest bummer of the night. She's been WOWING us with all year with her red carpet fashion, but this is so unflattering for her. I'm surprised PRADA designed this for her. Sorry Lupita!
