Fashions Biggest Night

The Costume Institute Benefit Gala is the Superbowl of Fashion-The Oscars of the East Coast and if there were ratings for the event better known as The Met Gala it would have broken Neilson. It seems Vogue editor and gala host, Anna Wintour was impressed, although she was nearly hit by a cyclist as she arrived tot he venue, she was reported to have cracking an ever so slight smile.

There was red carpet veteran, Naomi Campbell sashaying down her red carpet runway.  Sarah Jessica Parker, with a dramatic headpiece to accentuate her H&M look. Making her first appearance at the Met Gala, young star Zendaya in an usual design by Fausto Puglisi, and no one is suggesting she smells like anything but a beautiful flower. Uhem we digress.
This year's event was called, China: Through the Looking Glass and some stars took this literally, from wearing frocks designed by Chinese fashion houses to gowns so sheer it was as if you were looking through glass.

The looking glass gowns were a definite theme of the night, Beyonce's strategically placed sequins showed off her assets courtesy of Givenchy. Not to be outdone, Kim Kardashian in an ethereal Roberto Cavalli with white feathers and sequins that hid what she's previously has shown us in selfies,  magazines, oh and that vintage video which kicked off her rise to stardom. BTW Kim, Beyonce wore an almost the identical gown in 2012 to the Met Gala. Yawn.

JLo showed she can keep up with the Kardashian in her one shoulder red and sheer Versace. Jenny from the block transformed the theme from the Looking Glass and threw out the letters "GL" She showed major side butt in her gown.  Remember it was Versace that made her a show stopper during the Grammys of 2000. That's right that smashing entrance is celebrating it's 15th anniversary.

So who stole the show? Leaving the red carpet breathless and jaw dropped was RhiRhi wearing Chinese designer, Guo Pei. Flanked by two train attendants doing their best Pippa Middleton impression, Rhianna, one of the last to walk the carpet entered in a canary yellow gown, accented with fur, with a train that could run down all of 5th avenue. The paparazzi went crazy as well as the internet meme makers.

Met Gala 2015 will keep us all looking for a long time and is one fashion event for the record books.
