Gala Glamour

The Met Gala is one of the most important events in the fashion calendar and following last year's world of punk theme, this year saw a return to a more glamorous dress code. Like so many events, the evening had winners and losers in the style stakes, with most pulling out all the stops to steal the night but a few sparkling horrors have made the worst dressed lists today. With such a wide array of designer gowns gracing the red carpet, alongside a few unexpected appearances like Kendall Jenner in a customsied Topshop dress and a great mix of shapes, from elegant slinky numbers to full on princess ballgowns with the jewels to match there really was a look for all tastes. The Met Gala ball is the ultimate event for fashion and this year's attendants did not fail to bring the glitz and glamour.

These are my favourites dresses from the evening, in particular Emmy Rossum - with such a bright colour and bold floral print she looked amazing and was a nice change from the pallete of monochrome that seemed to rule the event. 

Emmy Rossum - Caroline Herrera gown. 
Hayden Panettiere in Dennis Basso. 
Leighton Meester - dress by Emilio Pucci with Jimmy Choo heels. 
Karoline Kurkova - Marchesa ballgown with Harry Winston diamonds.  
Reese Witherspoon - Stella McCartney gown. 
Kate Mara - Valentino SS14 couture gown.

Who gets your vote for best dressed? And which group do you prefer - the ladies in monochrome or those who chose colour & print?
