Met Gala 2014: 13-16

Here‘s the slideshow:

13. Victoria Beckham, David Beckham

David is looking damn good, and I can’t really articulate why because I’m hopelessly uninformed in the men’s fashion world. And everything about Victoria’s dress is absolutely stunning… except the top. It might just be the angle of the camera or something, but it looks like a white censor bar has been tucked under her arm by a photoshop wizard. NAY. (but almost a yay)

14. Naomi Campbell(Givenchy)

The gently textured fabric is beautiful, and I’m not a huge fan of the feathers, but it works. …and I’m sure that the top of this dress looked absolutely fabulous on a model sketch, and Naomi has a a rocking body, but in practice, it’s kind of awkward. Scratch that, it’s really awkward. I love all of the pieces separately, but this is the whole picture- so, NAY.

15. Karlie Kloss(Oscar de la Renta)

A dress as dark as this on someone so fair is a bold move, but I love how well it’s all pulled together. The gloves were a little over the top, but not so much that it detracts too heavily from the gorgeousness of the dress and the always lovely miss Karlie. YAY!

16. Amber Valletta(Saint Laurent)

Okay so the concepts of behind this outfit are spot on: a statement necklace with a low cut top, simple pants with a showy top… but this outfit doesn’t work for me. 1. The sequins are too much for me (especially with their even striping, but that’s possible a personal preference clouding my judgement) 2. The showy top and statement necklace make this outfit top-heavy 3. The pants are cropped just above the ankle, but paired with the hemline of the jacket, it makes Amber’s legs look shorter than they are.
Overall, I can’t do it. NAY.
