Met Ball 2015

I am a bit addicted to watching red carpet shows, and I love award season (for more than anything) the fashion. Once award season is over all of those red carpet events fizzle out, until we get to the Met Gala/Met Ball. This event is one of my favorites for checking out what the celebs are wearing because they often times cut loose and go a little crazy! The Met Ball always has a theme, and most people dress according to it. This year's Met Ball theme was China: Through the Looking Glass. But what's the Met Ball, you ask? Here's what the internet has to say: "The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit." 

Here are some of my favorite looks from this year's event!

 Olivia Munn in a hand-painted J. Mendel couture gown:

I also love how her nails tied in perfectly with her outfit! And I really need to get a matte top coat!

Lilly Aldridge in Carolina Herrera:

Emma Roberts in Ralph Lauren:

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture:

Kate Hudson in Michael Kors:

Dakota Johnson in Chanel:

I know it's a bit hard to see against her gorgeous, reflective mirror dress, but Deborah Lippmann gave her a manicure with the super shiny, deep black creme nail polish "Fade to Black"  Just as exciting for a beauty junkie like myself is seeing what some of the most fashionable women in the world are wearing on the nails, what their makeup is looking like and how their hair is! 
While I did have quite a few looks I didn't love (Olivia Wilde, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway just to name a few...)  I'm just going to leave you with this picture of my very least favorite look:

SJP is quite the fashionista, and has worn some crazy getups, but this head piece is just too much for me.

What do you think?? Have you checked out any of the fun, crazy and interesting ensembles from this year's Met Ball?? What were some of your favorites, and which fell short for you? Let me know!
