2016 Met Gala - Model Moment

Being a fashion event, there are always a ton of models in attendance at the Met Gala. Let's take a look at how they fared going from runway to red carpet.

Cindy Crawford in Balmain
Yes, Cindy's gown looks like a disco ball, but she's still rocking it! With her ageless looks, she could have gone a much sexier route, but I liked that she picked a gown befitting her age, and guess what? She still looks sexy. The gown fits her great, is visually interesting, and a lot of fun. Good job, Cindy!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Ralph Lauren
The statuesque Rosie looks great in this white one-shouldered column dress. There's a slight nod to the theme with the hardware on her shoulder, but other than that I thought this was a pretty dull dress for the event. She looks fantastic, but ultimately forgetable.

Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger
Gigi really made an effort to be on theme, and it paid off. Her and her boyfriend, Zayn Malik, definitely have a Sci-Fi vibe going on here. I loved the color of gown, the sequined bustier, and even the sheer skirt over the sparkly underwear or whatever it is. The choker and panel of fabric running from neck to waist wasn't my favorite detail, but I didn't hate it either. Good job, Gigi!

Poppy Delevingne in Marchesa
I loved Poppy's whole look. The dress is stunning, and I'd love to inspect it closer. It's a little bit Vegas showgirl, a little bit flapper, and a little bit Victorian all rolled into one. The straight platinum blonde hair combined with the dark lip and nails make for an excellent dramatic look. Well done, Poppy!   

 Kate Upton in Topshop
Kate Upton wore this sparkly one-sleeved gown. She looks lovely, but for a Met Gala dress it's nothing special. A sleeker hairstyle would have easily made the look feel more on theme. Obviously a very pretty look, just not a Met Gala look.
    
Karolina Kurkova 
Karolina literally lit up the red carpet with this grey and white flower applique dress (although it could hardly compare to Claire Danes' gorgeous creation). I liked the silhouette of this dress. The tea length is pretty, and her shoes complimented the look well. Her simple hair and make-up really let the dress take center stage. Nicely done, Karolina!

Karlie Kloss in Brandon Maxwell
I'm not usually a fan of dresses with cut-outs, but I was digging this look on Karlie. From a construction standpoint it feels on theme. The color looks great on her, and I like that she accented the look with a red lip. I didn't love the clutch, but overall this was a nice look. Good job, Karlie! 

Jourdan Dunn in Balmain
There were so many Balmain dresses on the red carpet, and Jourdan's was one of my favorites. It has a very robot feel to it, and I loved the black mesh accents. The touches of metallic in her hair and make-up were a really fun accent too. Great job, Jourdan! 

Lily Aldridge in Michael Kors
The fit on Lily's gold, sparkly gown is flawless. This is definitely a "For Models Only" dress, and she is rocking it. The sleek hair and warm make-up compliment the look perfect. Gorgeous look, Lily!

AND FINALLY...

Naomi Campbell in Cavalli Couture
Naomi Campbell slayed it in this metallic gunmetal grey gown. The beadwork on this is really cool, and I loved the whole art-deco vibe of it. The metallic bangles were a fun addition, and her hair and make-up look really great too. Well done, Naomi!
