The Met Gala 2016- Best of the Best Dressed

The Met Gala (aka Fashion Prom) is arguably one of the most trendsetting and high fashion nights of the entire year.  This year, especially with the theme being Manus vs. Machina, was no different.  While there were a considerable amount of decidedly fashion flops, these are my picks for the best dressed on the red carpet of fashion's biggest night.

1. Claire Danes in Zac Posen
      Okay, this look gets all the innovation awards.  While many designers blended harsh and soft elements with their Manus vs. Machina looks, no one accomplished this theme better than Mr. Zac Posen himself.  While at first glance, Dane's dress is classically Zac Posen, with simple yet stunning pleating and gorgeous draping, the dress was made with fiber optic technology that allows it to illuminate in the dark.  Cinderella moment times 1000 over here.

2. Allison Williams in Peter Pilotto
      This is without a doubt my favorite look of the night.  I love how the bottom of the bodice is parallel to the asymmetrical neckline and the almost-but-not-quite crop top look of the gown.  The embellished floral detail is absolutely stunning as well!

3. Emma Roberts in Tory Burch
      As soon as I saw this dress I fell in absolute love with it.  From the rich purple to shell pink ombr√© to the millions of laser cut Swarovski crystals that adorn it, this dress is nothing short of stunning.


3. Kate Hudson in Versace
      The metal plates that make up this dress perfectly fit into the theme of this year's Met Gala, while still retaining a classic vibe with the mermaid shape.  An unexpectedly gorgeous combination that Kate pull off with grace.

4. Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger
      While yes, a center chiffon pull has been a bodice element that's been around for a while, Hilfiger manages to differentiate this gunmetal gown by extending it up past the necklace and finishing it off with a stunning high collar.  While I adore this look on Gigi, I just can't get behind Zayn's transformer-like sleeve. While I admire what the sleeve is trying to accomplish, next time, a coordinating tie will suffice instead.

 5. Hannah Davis in Zuhair Murad
       Zuhair Murad has done it again. Murad, known for his intricate floral detailing with daring twists on classic styles stuck to his signature look with this light silver gown, but still manages to accomplish the Manus vs. Machina theme with contrast between the soft floral detail and the harsher metal accents.


 6. Rachel McAdams in Valentino
       Rachel McAdams may be in classic Valentino whimsy, but the juxtaposition of the mesh with the sparkly script version of Dante's Divine Comedy creates a unique look for Manus vs. Machina.

7. Hailee Steinfeld in H&M
      This emerald H&M gown plays with the similar "crop but not quite cropped" look that Allison Williams donned in her asymmetrical Pilotto gown.  There are few things not to love with this gown. The side cutouts and front slit give the dress a classic edge, however similar to Kate Hudson's Versace gown, it retains a classic and elegant look.

These looks absolutely stunned on the red carpet, and I can't wait to see what the Met Gala brings out next year!

Love and Stay Preppy,
