"China: Through the Looking Glass"

One of Fashions Biggest Night is the Met Gala, fundraising gala, for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute of New York. This year the Met Gala was held on Monday night May 4, 2015. Each year the Gala has a theme and the guests are to dress according to the theme. This years theme was "China: Through the Looking Glass".

Between Beyonce and Kim Kardashians see through dresses, Rihanna's long train and Sarah Jessica Parker's statment headpiece, the red carpet was full of jaw dropping fashion! The Met Gala is a night (typically the first Monday in May) I anticipate for, to see who's dress upholds to the theme of the Gala and who designed what dress for which celebrity.

This year there were many see through dresses ("through the looking glass") and many Chinese inspired dresses. The color red was also seen throughout on the red carpet as the color red is very popular in the Chinese culture. Red symbolizes good fortune and joy and symbolic color of happiness. Some of the dresses were Kimono inspired; however, kimono is a Japanese garment! Qipao or Cheongsam is a traditional Chinese dress.

Below I have listed which celebrity is wearing which designer...

Kim Kardashian - Roberto Cavalli
Beyonce - Givenchy Couture
Joan Smalls - Roberto Cavalli
Jennifer Lopez - Atelier Versace

 Vanessa Hudgens - H&M

Karolina Kurkova -Tommy Hilfiger

Lizzy Caplan -Donna Karan Atelier
Selena Gomez - Vera Wang
Kate Beckinsale - Diane von Fustenberg

Emily Ratajkowski - Topshop
Cara Delevingne - Stella McCartney
Janelle Monae - H&M

                                       Best Dressed                                                                                    Worst Dressed

 Although, many of these women had some amazing dresses on and looked impeccable, Rihanna was best dressed as she stole the spotlight emulating the theme of the event. As with the color red the color yellow is also of Chinese culture, which is the most beautiful and prestigious color signifying neutrality and good luck! On the other hand Kris Jenner was the worst dressed (along with some others) but, that dress just did not flatter her at all!  Who do you think was worst dress and best dressed?

P.S. I loved!!! Kim Kardashian's dress 
Can I wear that to my wedding with more crystals added in some areas:)
