Met Ball Gala 2016: Best Dressed

The Met Ball Gala ball brings celebrities from all walks of life – music, film and TV – to unite for one common cause. That cause is fashion.

Hosted by Anna Wintour and American Vogue, each year is bigger and better than the last. Every year, the stars are given a theme and have to wear outfits that are not only spectacular but are relevant.  This year the theme was complicated but very cool – Manus Vs Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology. This means futuristic!

Stars went for a fabulous mix of metallic colours and bright outfits – the Met Ball is no place for shy people. Let’s have a closer look at who looked fabulous:

Taylor Swift

With her new platinum blonde hair, Taylor looks futuristic and so she rocked a metallic mini dress that made her look like a character from a sci-fi movie, a gorgeous character! Love the gladiator sandals too!

Kylie Jenner

Kylie looked sensational in a silver maxi dress. It looks like something that would fit a Great Gatsby themed party as well as a technology inspired party thanks to all the sequins and sparkles. It’s the bob that brings it up to date – simple but chic – which is important when you want the dress to stand out.

Kim Kardashian

Kim showed that she’s on track losing her baby weight in a stunning silver dress. It’s quite similar to her younger sister Kylie.

Beyonce

Beyonce looked bootylicious in a bodycon dress – what a way to make an entrance! A bodycon maxi is so flattering and Beyonce knows she looks fabulous judging by her smile. It’s only a couple of years since Beyonce’s sister Solange kicked her husband in an elevator at this event but Beyonce comes back and holds her head high and we love her for it.

Rita Ora

Rita represents us Brits at the ball and looks stunning in a glamorous silver maxi dress, made with silver feathers. If there are more outfits like this in the future thanks to new technology. then the world will be one fun place! Until then, a silver maxi is still pretty glamorous.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie stands out for keeping it simple at an event where everyone else seems to have opted for gold or silver. If you don’t like a lot of colour, then wearing a simple white maxi dress that’s well-fitted will make you look like a star without it seeming that you’ve tried too hard. If you feel confident in this, you’ll walk with your head high – just as Rosie does.

Kate Upton

The American model and actress looked like a goddess in a one-shoulder maxi dress with a thigh high split. The colour perfectly matches the theme and the shape of the dress perfectly emphasises her figure and gives her an hourglass sihouette. A one-shoulder maxi dress is always interesting to look at, and it’s cool to show off a hint of skin without showing everything.

Katy Perry

I almost didn’t recognise Katy Perry. She channeled a gothic vibe in a black maxi dress that was embellished with gold keys. Everyone imagines that the future will be full of robots and machines, but Katy looks fabulous in this and very unique!

Zoe Saldana

Zoe’s dress was huge! She said that we may want to dress in more colours in the future when technology is all black and white and she shows what she means in a multi-colour maxi dress.

Alexa Chung

Alexa looked amazing in a trouser suit! She was the only one in trousers and it was inspiring – in the future women will be as strong and fierce as ever. I loved the sequin embellishment and thought it was a great party look. She’d be as comfortable at the end of the night as she was at the beginning.

Who do you think looked the best?
