It’s known as the “Oscars Of The Fashion World“, but I don’t think there would be many gold statuettes given out for some of the looks at the Costume Institute Gala. This year’s event celebrates the work of designer Charles James, known for the “Clover Leaf” dress which is currently on display with 20 others at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The dress code, which included suits with tails for the men, was said to be strict, but it seems a few attendees didn’t get the memo.
Here are the best, and worst, looks of the night.
Anna Wintour in Chanel
One of the carpet’s highlights, Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa
Everyone waited to see what Lupita Nyong’o would be wearing, but she left a lot of us feeling disappointed. She works this Prada number, but it would have been better if the theme was ‘The Roaring 20s’ or something.
Emmy Rossum in floral Carolina Herrera
David and Victoria Beckham in Ralph Lauren
Zoe Saldana in Michael Kors
Charlize Theron in Dior
Kristen Stewart not looking a mess in Chanel
Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Oscar de la Renta ballgown wasn’t a big hit, but you could tell she was having fun wearing it.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who we’re going to be hearing a lot about soon.
Blake Lively in Gucci
Dita Von Teese with designer Zac Posen
Model Liu Wen in this gorgeous Zac Posen gown
Model Arizona Muse in another great Zac Posen look
Solange disappointed us as well in this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress. She usually slays, and I never use that term loosely, or at all, the red carpet.
Anne Hathaway in red Calvin Klein crop top thingy.
Johnny Depp, with Amber Heard. He got it right, but somehow he still looks like he just waltzed off the set of Tim Burton’s next movie.
Model Joan Smalls in Vera Wang
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend in Ralph Lauren
Zoe Kravitz in Topshop. We’re not sure about that hair.
Emma Stone, in Thakoon, with Andrew Garfield
You know, i’m really starting to like Rita Ora, but her fashion choices baffle me sometimes. This Donna Karan Atelier is alright, and it would have been a lot better without the lace-up shoes.
Brie Larson in Prada. Miuccia, why would you do this to these girls?
The always lovely Janelle Monae in Tadashi Shoji
Gabrielle Union in Prada
Katie Holmes in Marchesa. On Twitter, I said this dress looked like dried mustard, but I think that may have been too nice.
Naomi Campbell in Givenchy Couture
Gisele Bundchen in Balenciaga with Tom Brady
Erykah Badu looking fly in Givenchy. Pharrell who?
Maggie Gyllenhaal in your grandmother’s Valentino house dress.
When not dressed by people that clearly hate her, Kim Kardashian can look really good. She and Kanye West both wore Lanvin.
Rihanna had one of the best looks of the night in Stella McCartney
The last couple to arrive, naturally, Jay Z and Beyonce in Givenchy
So, how do you feel about these get-ups?
