Best 2014 Met Gala Moments

   Here in the U.S., we have many annual events that truly epitomize that Americana celebratory theme that we have carried through history. The Super Bowl, The Oscars, and The Victoria Secret Fashion show just to name a few.  As a lover of football, films, and lingerie models, I take all of these events very seriously.  But there is one event that prevails over all in my eyes, The Met Costume Gala. That is, unless the pats are playing that year (Sorry Anna Wintour, but not a chance). It is called the Oscars of fashion, so of course I am reviewing the best looks. Now let me break it down for you like an Aaron Carter music video.
Conscious Coupling
Pairs that looked their best with each other.  

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Whats gucci, Blake? Your dress, obviously! If I'm going to be honest, I think she could have done better. The silhouette of the dress is complete perfection, but the color/sequins is a little been there done that. None the less, she looks stunning. That smile is money.  Her hair and makeup was my favorite of the night. RR is looking right in that blue velvet suit.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield I actually think I went into cardiac arrest when I saw these two. Her Thakoon look is major. The tailoring, colors and shape are all perfect. He looks dapper as hell and I've decided that they can totally adopt me.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady Did I mention I'm a Patriots fan? Tom terrific can just do no wrong. G looks gorgeous as per usual. As much as I like her Balenciaga frock, what I am obsessed with is her hair, makeup and jewelry. Those green drop earrings with her complexion are everything.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West And the most improved award goes to! I mean it helps that she isn't eight months pregnant, but Kim K has stepped up her game since last time around.  The Lanvin satin gown is very true to the Charles James theme. The dress could have been tailored a bit off the bottom and I kind of really hate the shoes. Hair and makeup is amazing. Back to the dress, one word, Pockets! Kanye looks chic and I would expect nothing less. 

Pinky and The Reign 
Rose colored gowns that ruled the red carpet.

Suki Waterhouse It is a serious misfortune that whoever named this girl was not present for my birth because I have serious name envy.  I think this Burberry dress is stunning. I love the fit of the top bodice and the waterfall skirt. Imagine if her and Bradley actually got married and she took his name to be Suki Cooper. Not as chic, but just as funny.
Kate Bosworth I am in love with this dress. Stella McCartney can seriously do no wrong and she did not disappoint when it came to Kate. Google the back of this dress because it is breath taking.  The blush color and the lines of the dress are so beautiful. God bless you Beatle offspring, Stella McCartney.   
Rachel McAdams Simple never goes out of style, and this dress proved it.  The classic cut, classic color, and classic lines take this Ralph Lauren to a whole nother level.  Though, if I had to chose between this and the same color Calvin Klein that Rose Byrne wore to the Emmys, I'd pick Rose every time. 
Taylor Swift Say what you want about this girl but she knows how to dress for an occasion. Oscar De la Renta seemed to be the designer of the night. This pink satin ODR matches the Charles James theme to a tee. Although I love Tay in anything J. Mendel, the back of this dress and the embellishments are gorgeous. 
Whites and What Not
Ladies who made white sexy as ever.

Lily Donaldson These Burberry models are killing me tonight! Clad in Burberry, obviously, she looks incredible. Clean cut, color, and lines make me a happy girl .  Her jewels and side boob have me swooning. 
Diane Kruger Ok so this isn't white! It's ok. This is the what not to go with the whites. Diane Kruger could have stopped traffic with this gorgeous Jason Wu. I love the different textures that this dress plays with.  Her neckline is on point as well. Thank you Jason Wu. 
Rihanna Bad gal RiRi killed it as always. This Stella McCartney custom is insanely gorgeous. I don't know what to say other than this is a crop top shoulder pad Met moment to remember. Stella made RiRi a vixen in white. 
Victoria Beckham Vicky B in none other than Vicky B. This woman knows how to design the most amazing silhouette. I have never seen anyone look bad in a Victoria Beckham design. White is about clean and this look is about as clean and beautiful as it gets. Yes Bex!

Dress Code Rebels
White tie rejectors who still stunned.

Margot Robbie I know not a lot of people are going to agree with me, but I love this. Her look is Prada and it is chic.  I am obsessed with the intricacy and details of this dress. So what if it is not totally appropriate and everyone else hates it! I love it. 
Lupita N'yongo Prada you did it again goddamn it. Once again I am not going to have a lot of people who agree with me but I am in love with it. Yes it looks like a very expensive cat toy. That does not stop her from looking totally gorgeous. C'est très avant-garde.  Lupita is bringing the headband back this year. 
Beyoncé Yoncé and Givenchy are always a match made in heaven.  It is a little bit more funeral-esque than Charles James but wow. She looks incredible. The beads and cut are exquisite. I swear I think Riccardo Tisci was god's gift to me. 
Cara Delevingne Holy sh*t! I lost all air inside me when I saw this. Cara looked so beautiful. So hot. So chic. So not Charles James White tie.  Stella McCartney deserves major acclaim for all her looks last night. This fits her like a glove. Utter perfection. I think Miss Cara gets my best of the night.
