They don’t call it the Oscars of Fashion for nothing! This year the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala’s theme was “China: Through the looking glass”. Although only some managed to understand the theme, here is what we saw at the Met Ball last night:

 

The Show Stoppers:

Talk about making a statement! No other way to describe Riri’s Guo Pei gown? train coat?

After making photographers and fans waiting until the last minute, Beyonce arrived and did nothing less than steal the show for herself. Wearing a very sheer and embellished Jewel gown from Givenchy, queen Bey out-shined Rihanna, Kim K and everyone else.

Another star who nailed the theme to perfection is Zhang Ziyi in this gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown.

In my opinion, Zendaya pulled off the “modern, Princess of China” look with her bold Fausto Puglisi gown.

The Deception:
Now, I don’t precisely “hate” these looks, but I expected a lot more from these fashion forward celebs:

In any other circumstances, in any other event, this dress would probably have made my best dressed list. The dress is beautiful itself, but it looks like Kim here is trying to copy Beyonce’s previous looks.
