Celeb Style: Met Gala Best Dressed

Last night the Met Gala was held in NYC. This has quickly become one of the biggest nights in fashion and is a  huge draw for almost every celebrity on the planet including actors, models and musicians.  The Met Gala is the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, an event held to raise money for the costume institute.  Tickets go for a whopping 30k a piece and there is a waiting list a mile long to attend.  To make it even more interesting, every year they come up with a different theme for the event. This year, the theme was "Manus x Machina" which was a nod to fashion meeting technology.  Without fail, there were some people who stuck to the theme perfectly with more futuristic looks and others who ignored it completely.  Either way there were still some incredible gowns that blew me away.  My absolute favorite look of the night was Beyonce wearing this custom latex Givenchy dress that fit her like a glove.  I love that she kept the rest of her look simple and let the dress do the talking.  She always nails it!  As someone who loves a good sequin, I was in heaven last night because almost everyone there wore some type of embellishment.  My favorite out of these looks was Cindy Crawford in Balmain.  Other favorites included Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors and Kate Hudson in Versace.  Rounding out my favorites in more classic looks were Emily Ratajkoski in Prabal Gurung and Kate Upton in custom Topshop!  Sexy and sophisticated.  

Who were your favorites?
