Met Ball Red Carpet Fashion Choices With Photos – it is always one of New York’s fashion highlights of the year and this year’s Met Ball took place yesterday.
As you might guess from the name of the event it takes place every year at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art on the edge of NYC’s Central Park.
Every year it seems that the main choice for the evening is whether to try to make an impression by wearing a beautifully stylish outfit or if it might make more sense in terms of media coverage to wear something less classic looking but more revealing and controversial.
Madonna still seems to like the controversial route despite now being 55-years old. She posted an image on Instagram of an outfit she said that she wanted to wear to this year’s Met Ball was told by Anna Wintour that she was not allowed to turn up to the event dressed (or more correctly undressed) like that. The photo shows the singer wearing some white bandage style dressings that partly cover her body but reveal all of her ample breasts.
One of the evening’s most revealing outfits was unsurprisingly worn by Rihanna who has made something of a career in recent months of exposing various parts of her body in magazines and on social media sites. In fact the singer actually had her Instagram account suspended for a while in the last few days after she posted some naked photos of her bottom that were deemed too rude for the site. The Instagram account has since been re-activiated.
Rihanna’s Met Ball outfit clearly showed that underwear was not a priority for her as she arrived in a stunning white Stella McCartney gown and spent some time posing on the red carpet for the large group of photographers who had assembled. If this was a classy choice for the main event of the evening then she went in another direction with her choice of outfit for the after party when she wore a gold dress that not only showed plenty of sideboob but was also very low-cut round the back and showed plenty of “bum cleavage.”
Someone else who chose Stella McCartney for the Met Ball was actress Reese Witherspoon who looked very glamorous in her long pink SM gown. She matched the outfit with a classic hair style and looked every inch like a 40’s Hollywood screen star.
Blake Lively was another actress who pulled off a glamorous Hollywood look on the red carpet. She was wearing a long fitted champagne coloured dress designed by Gucci. This featured a low-cut front that showed off plenty of the former Gossip Girl star’s cleavage and she was joined on the red carpet by her husband Ryan Reynolds whose outfit was also designed by Gucci.
Another outfit that got plenty of mentions last night was Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen’s silver chain mail style dress from Ralph Lauren. The dress had no back at all and the front started off pretty late too showing most of the swimsuit model’s boobs. Not everyone appreciated the look however with the Huffington Post calling it one of the worst outfits of the night.
