Best Dressed X Met Ball 2015

There is no gala like the Met Ball, arguably the year's biggest night in fashion. After years and years of the annual celebration and its famous red carpet arrivals, it has established itself as the one night the A-list dares to actually have fun with fashion. Being on a best dressed list of the Met Ball to me is not about being the most beautiful in the classic sense, but about how someone has interpreted the dress code and has made it her (or his) own.

This year's prime example of a Met-Ball-best-dressed lister must be Rihanna. To any other gala this outfit would have been ridiculous, but to the Met with a Chinese themed dress code, this epic Guo Pei coat with huge train, lined with fur and beautifully embroidered, all of a sudden makes sense. It is a bold interpretation of the dress code that fits Rihanna so very nicely.

Much like Rihanna, Lady Gaga made a bold choice. She opted for a beautiful custom Balenciaga gown, obviously inspired by traditional Chinese garments. Julianne Moore did not really make a bold choice with her beautiful, but quite simple Givenchy Couture gown, but it was true to her personal style and although not obviously in the Chinese theme, it did not feel out of place.

The daring part of both Sienna Miller's and Diane Kruger's outfits are probably the fact that they are wearing pants, rather than a skirt. The Chinese part in Miller's Thakoon outfit is the beautiful crimson red colour, whereas Kruger's Chanel Haute Couture outfit consists of sheer pants with beautifully embroidered flowers and a top that slightly resembles Chinese armour.

Rose Byrne opted for a Calvin Klein gown that again seems to resemble Chinese armour, while Emily Blunt wears a gorgeous silk satin Prada gown and cape that has written China all over it. Both looked simply stunning, proving that not just the crazy ones make for an interesting Met Carpet.
