MET Gala 2018!

The best dressed was Blake Lively!

Jaw-droppingly good.   Magnificent!     The stuff of legend.
The funny thing is that she isn’t even really trying.   She’s just so effortless and natural.   It’s spellbinding.

Also looking great were:

Kesha Ward:


Absolutely nails it.

Lynda Carter:


The original Wonder Woman.

Emily Ratajowski:


Sheer elegance!

Suitably toned down for the occasion.   Bravo.

Honourable Mentions:

Zendaya:

Wonderful workmanship here.   Not sure if this was the right colour for her hair though.   Black hair may have been better.

Gigi Hadid:

Refreshingly unique.

Gabrielle Union:


Could have been less fabric as the yellow is so bright.   However, the fabulous necklace helps garner her a spot on the list.

Almost there… it’s screaming for the necklace.  Her nails are tantalizing.

Lovely.

MET Gala 2017!

The Best Dressed was Gisele Bundchen!


Poor Gisele. If an Alien Spaceship visits Earth and they say, “We demand your best to take back to our Galaxy!”… she’d be gone! It’s somewhat apt though, as here she is looking scintillatingly out of this world!

Also looking excellent were:

Adriana Lima:

Lovely. On another person the outfit may be lacking some accessories, but her fabulous glow makes up for it.

Yes! Ordinarily this would be screaming for a necklace, but it’s absolutely wondrous what she’s done to her eyes.

Felicity Jones:

So many try to be different, and miss. The colours and style here are refreshingly different, and her look is quite elegant.

Reese Witherspoon:

Kendall Jenner:

Daring. Huge gamble. She swings for the fences and hits it out of the park. Her age, persona, and no tattoos make it work.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS:

Nicki Minaj:

Well balanced… revealing, original, and with some sophistication. The key is she doesn’t over-do it in any one department, and overall it yields an outfit that is more exciting than most.

Karlie Kloss:

Lovely stems. They complement the rather basic top well. And her haircut makes this work even more. Well done; but definitely not for everyone. She has the assets for it.

Behati Prinsloo:

I’m a bit torn about this one. It has a ‘sleeping gown’ vibe. However her accessories, hairstyle, and that small train take her over the finish line.

Gwyneth Palthrow:

It’s nice. Can’t say much more though. Sometimes, that’s enough if you’re trying to be safe.
