Best Looks From Met Gala 2014

The annual Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is often called the "Fashion Oscars" where top celebrities show off their sense of style and play around with a certain theme each year. Anna Wintour had dubbed this year - "White Tie & Decorations" - making it perhaps one of the most of formal events in it's history. 

From Oscar de la Renta to Dolce & Gabbana, the gowns and gents were looking glamourous last night, but some had totally missed the mark, going from fab to WTF? Eager to see all the anticipated outfits, I couldn't resist playing Joan Rivers for a day! 

Of course, Blake Lively had won my Best Dressed of the night with her shimmery, gold Gucci gown with her trophy husband, Ryan Reynolds, at her arm. The couple literally beamed Best Dressed as they both walked down the red carpet in Gucci. I might have actually teared up… I'm sure I'm not the only one with 500+RT's & 700+ Favorites on Twitter AND 1,700+ likes on Instagram(@societygrl) - she's the sure Best Dressed winner!

Not only did her gown look impeccably flawless, but her hair, makeup, smile, and even her skinny arms make me want to love and hate her at the same time. To quote Drake "that's jealousy." When I grow up, I WANT TO BE HER. I have surely missed seeing Blake Lively on Gossip Girl, but here she totally channeled her inner-S last night. 

Leighton Meester was also spotted on the red carpet wearing Emilio Pucci, for a Gossip Girl reuion last night. It's hard not to say that Blair and Serena weren't out last night :) Oh, how I miss GG… Definitely Best Dressed #2 pick!

Another Best Dressed nominee, is of course, none other than Sarah Jessica Parker. This is not a shocker, as she pretty much always nails her outfits, a la Carrie Bradshaw. This woman has a gift for having Best Dressed outfits. I love the detailing on the back, especially the Oscar de la Renta signature. This dress belongs in a museum. 

- Worth Mentioning- 
Anna Wintour in Chanel Couture

Jay-z in Givenchy Couture & Beyonce rocked a sheer Givenchy Couture dress- I'm still not impressed. What's the big deal with her anyway? 

Kanye & Kim K in Lanvin - big upgrade since last year but still no a fan… At least Kim was actually invited this time. 

Taylor Swift wore her "dream" dress - Oscar de la Renta 

David Beckham in Ralph Lauren Black Label & Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham 

Russian model Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa. Obsessed.

Gisele in Balenciaga 

Rihanna in Stella McCartney - Love!

Worst Dressed 

Kate Upton in Dolce & Gabbana ( last nigh I wrote Michael Kors, I was mistaken) - Seriously, she should have gone naked, this is horrible. The ruffles make me puke. This is another case of "even though it's designer doesn't mean it looks good"

Lupita Nyongo in Prada - HORRIBLE CHOICE. Is this a jungle or a red carpet? I was never a fan of her and this just took me over the edge. Ew.
