Met Gala 2015: My Favorite Looks

The first Monday of May is my favorite Monday of the year because it’s Met Gala Monday!! Celebrities and fashionistas alike come together to celebrate the newest Costume Institute exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I love the Met Gala because it’s a chance for fashion geeks like me to salivate over some of the most beautiful couture, inspired by the exhibit’s theme.

This year’s exhibit is China: Through the Looking Glass and explores how Chinese aesthetics, art and culture has influenced Western designers and the pieces they create. The museum’s website describes the exhibit as “[h]igh fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery,” and that it “will feature more than one hundred examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear alongside Chinese art.

Some attendees really took the Chinese theme to heart and incorporated these looks in their ensembles, while others may have stayed away from the theme but still looked utterly gorgeous in their gowns. Take a look at my favorite looks below!
