2016 Met Gala - Resting on Pretty

I mentioned before that there is no requirement to dress according to the Met Gala theme, so you can't blame those that decided to play it safe. There's no real risk takers in this bunch, but they sure do look pretty.

Naomi Watts in Burberry 
I really liked Naomi's whole look here, and there's a definite nod to the night's theme too. The metallic was on trend for the night. It would have been a cool enough look with the disco ball sequins alone, but the flower appliques really made the look. They took the edge off and softened the overall effect. I loved the jewelry, and the hair and make-up looked great too. Well done, Naomi!
  
Emma Roberts in Tory Burch
Emma's purple ombre gown has a ton of visual interest. Between the colors and the geometric crystal details it has a lot going for it. I didn't care for the clutch, the arm band, or smoky eye here though. There's enough going on in the dress alone, and I thought they all distracted from the overall look. Her hair was cute though - love her as a red head. Nice job, Emma! 

Emma Stone in Prada
The hardware on Emma Stone's gown elevated what would have been a very plain look. It's fun and on theme. I'm not loving her as a brunette, but a bolder lip color would have pulled the hair and make-up styling together better. Not bad though.

Jessica Chastain in Prada
I loved Jessica's royal blue and black gown. The bead and embroidery work is beautiful, and the fit is flattering. Loved the high neck collar! Her hair and make-up compliment the look perfect, and how cute is it that she wore a watch! Well done, Jessica!

Bee Shaffer in Alexander McQueen
The embroidery work on Bee Shaffer's gown is stunning. The colors really pop against the black background. The silhouette of the dress is gorgeous from the puffed long sleeves down to the long train. There's nothing not to like here. Beautiful job, Bee!

Hailee Steinfeld in H&M
The color on Hailee's gown is beautiful. It fits her well, and I liked the texture on the top half (although I wasn't loving the cutouts). The gold accents in her shoes and jewelry choices accented the look well. I can't decide about the necklace though. The lip color bugged a bit as well, but overall, I enjoyed this look. Not bad, Hailee.  

Blake Lively in Burberry
Blake Lively's red carpet style is very old Hollywood glamour, and this look is no exception. The color is pretty and the flower embroidered train adds some drama. I wasn't in love with the shiny underlay fabric, but that's my only quibble. Her hair, make-up, and jewelry all look great. Love the red lip and earrings. Lovely look, Blake!

Chloë Grace Moretz in Coach
This is the most grown up I have ever seen Chloë look, and I hope her style choices continue in this direction. The cut of the bust is not the most flattering, but the dress is visually interesting enough to compensate for that. The patterned iridescent fabric is gorgeous. The look could have been made more venue appropriate with a little sleeker and more dramatic hair and make-up, but she looks great as is too. Nicely done, Chloë.   

Fei Fei Sun in Chanel
I loved the simple elegance to Fei Fei's gown. The combination of halter and off-the-shoulder necklines works well. It's a soft feminine looking gown, but the metallic stripe detailing feels fresh and modern. Her hair, make-up, jewelry, and accessories all compliment the look well. Beautiful look, Fei Fei!

AND FINALLY...

Emily Blunt in Michael Kors
Emily Blunt looked absolutely adorable in her long sleeved navy gown. The simple silhouette is flattering, but the lace and sparkle really elevate the overall look. The hair and make-up are simple but lovely. Honestly though, it's that smile and gorgeous pregnancy glow that really makes the look. No other accessories needed. Gorgeous!
