Best Dressed: Met Ball

I find it weird that until a few years ago I was largely unaware that the Met Ball was even a thing given how utterly in love with it I am now.

Technically, the purpose of the evening is an annual fundraising shindig for The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. In reality it's the most exciting fashion event of the year with anyone who's anyone (and Kim Kardashian) rocking up on the red carpet to show off their fashion cajones.

It's all about the outfits. It's not about looking pretty - it's about making a statement.

It's go big or go home made flesh.

So who rocked my world this year?

I mean, do I need to explain why this is good?! Best dressed of the night by some way for me. This look just takes my breath away: the dress, the accessories, the hair and makeup are all just perfect. Also +100 for the cape.

God I love this. Proof that going big doesn't have to mean a million colours and crazy embellishment, this is polished and stunning. The insouciance of the tux jacket thrown over her shoulders is to die for. Glamour personified.

A classic ballgown in a classic colour executed perfectly. The diamond necklace is the perfect accessory. So simple, so classic, so huge.

Style is all about being yourself right? And this is Rihanna being Rihanna at her best. Edgy and cool but without trying too hard. White haute.

ELLE WOODS WENT TO THE MET GALA AND IT WAS AWESOME! Ok, bit over excited there, sorry. But seriously, this colour + this neckline = all kinds of win.
