First off, I absolutely love this ensemble: it is just gorgeous and Alexa Chung looks fantastic in the structure with soft feminine edges. Adore the tapered trousers with braces and a delicate pussy bow in place of a bow tie. However, is it really appropriate for the Met Gala? I think not. This would have been appropriate for pretty much any other event where she would want to make a statement: but to the Met Gala?! No. Just no. This is an occasion to dress up in beautiful ballgowns... I would have thought better of Alexa and expect her to honour fashion tradition.
Verdict: Unsuitable Perfection.
Marion Cotillard is a beautiful women and looks truly exquisite in Christian Dior. The dazzling figure hugging dress with nude mesh sections and translucent from the top of the thigh down was no problem for Marion, as she still looked utterly classic and elegant. In addition, her 1940s hair and dark eyes add a hint of sexyness, totalling to a stunning Met Gala look. Also, her choice of a simple black clutch and no other accessories was perfect for a dress that encompases a whole outfit: detail, accessorising and shape in one piece.
I am a huge fan of Miu Miu, but not Carey Murrigan in this "cute" dress. Short blonde hair: Check. Pretty face: Check. Lilac: Check. Crotched Flowers: Check. This is sounding more and more like a five-year-old's outfit rather than an up and coming edgey young actress at the Met Gala! Carey has already shown her obvious flair for dressing on the red carpet but I think she made a mistake here when she chose a dress with pockets. Enough said.
