Met Gala 2014

The Nights best-dressed

Following last year's journey into the world of punk, this year's Met Ball saw its star guests return to the red carpet for a more glamorous ‘Hollywood’ attire.

With the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrating the opening of its exhibition dedicated to Charles James, many embraced old school elegance in the most romantic of dresses.  The result was a sea of ball gowns sweeping down the red carpet on the likes of Kate Mara, Rita Ora and Charlize Theron. 

For those looking for something a little edgier, a number of trends emerged. Cropped tops, offering a hint of midriff, teamed with a long skirt worn by none other than Rihanna. While Blake Lively, Marion Cotillard, Gisele and Leighton Meester chose a more seductive look with plunging necklines edging towards the navel.

Meanwhile a number of designers stood out as the night's absolute favorites: Stella McCartney arrived with an all-star group, all dressed in customized versions of her designs - Reese Witherspoon, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna and Kate Bosworth. Valentino’s feminine prints and embroidered lace were in abundance seen on Florence Welch, Haley Bennett, Kate Mara and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Miuccia Prada worked her magic for Lupita Nyong'o, Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Olsen and Dianna Agron - all of whom arrived dressed in bespoke Prada or Miu Miu creations.
