Best looks from the 2014 Met Gala
Saskia Starck | On 14, May 2014
The annual Costume Institute Gala, well known as the Met Ball, opened their doors again for the most exclusive social event in New York City.
The Ball has become the go to event for royalty of the arts, fashion, high-society, film and music world.
Every year fashion lovers go into a frenzy over the magnificent dresses. Boasting a different theme each year, attendees wear their take on the coveted attire.
Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, has chaired the event since 1995. It is considered one of the biggest fundraising nights of the city with nine million dollars raised in 2013.
It is the one night where fashion limits will be pushed, sometimes not always for the better.
Below is a collection of my favourite looks from the night. The theme this year was entitled Charles James: Beyond Fashion.Â
Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta
Suki Waterhouse in Burberry
Jay Z and BeyoncÃ© in vintage Givenchy Couture
Rihanna in Stella McCartney
Blake Lively in Gucci
Charlize Theron in Christian Dior
Karlie Kloss in Oscar de la Renta
Kendall Jenner in custom Topshop
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Balmain
Allison Williams in Oscar de la Renta
Joan Smalls in Vera Wang
Rachel McAdams in Ralph Lauren
Leighton Meester in Emilio Pucci
Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa
Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Stella McCartney and Cara Delevingne, all in Stella McCartney
After looking at these photos and dying inside do not fret. You can attend the event at a small price of $25,000 for those individual ticketsâ€¦oh the life of the rich and famous.
Alternatively check out New York-based fashion designer Cynthia Rowleyâ€™s video. She secretly hid a GoPro camera in her purse documenting the affair.
