Best Dressed: The Met Ball 2015

The 2015 Met Gala's dress code - China: Through the Looking Glass - seemingly gave the most stylish women of the industry two options; sleek chignons and figure-hugging, statuesque gowns as seen on Behati Prinsloo for example, or theatrical, operatic Madame Butterfly-like ballgowns inspired by oriental dress, as seen on Poppy Delevingne and Lily Aldridge. May we take note of the pregnant Jaime King in beautiful custom Jason Wu. Her gown and beauty choices dressed her bump in understated elegance; a far cry from Kim Kardashian's floral natal turn in Givenchy in 2013. But of course, we love Kim for her extravagant glamour, and so her custom Roberto Cavalli dress was one of my favourite looks of the evening. You may notice an absence of Beyonce's striking Givenchy Haute Couture gown that has flooded Instagram since the small hours, however there was a little too much skin and not enough tumbling curls to take the overzealousness down a notch for my liking. Speaking of tumbling locks, although I adored the Geisha-inspired slicked back low buns sported by many a star last night, these looks seemed to only make Gigi Hadid's flowing golden waves look more beachy and goddess-like than ever. Overall, my winning looks of the evening go to Diane Kruger, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Miranda Kerr and Lily Donaldson - do these ladies ever not impress?
