Met Gala 2015

With the theme for this year's Met Gala CHINA: Through the Looking Glass, one expects all sorts of abominable cultural missteps. And that's half the fun isn't it? Forcing celebs to really go out on a sartorial limb to separate the wheat from the chaff? There were oodles of terrible, racially insensitive ideas, to be sure, while others just skipped over the theme altogether. This year there was an interesting trend: cut-outs with exceedingly detailed beading, feathering and the works twisting and wrapping around the body. Jennifer Lopez, Joan Smalls and Kim Kardashian all put their curves on display in Versace,Cavalli and Cavalli respectively.

Evidently CHINA also invokes a sculptured red dress category. Stand-outs include Amal in Margiela, Karolina Kurkova in Hilfiger(?!) 

But my award for best interpretation on a theme while still appearing respectful, youthful and terrible en vogue goes to model Courtney Eaton in Dolce and Gabbana.
