Celebrity Fashion, Met Costume Institute Gala

Fashion Police at the MET Costume Institute Gala 2014

Last night saw fashion’s elite assemble on the red carpet for the Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: or “the MET Costume Institute Gala”, as we’ll be calling it for the sake of simplicity. The MET Gala is our favourite red carpet event: it’s not quite “fancy dress”, but the themed nature of the evening allows celebrities and designers to give free reign to their imaginations, so, unlike the Oscars, say, which have become somewhat dull in recent years, the MET Costume Institute Gala provides us with plenty of outrageous and inventive outfits to feast our eyes upon.

Because celebrities have the “dressing to a theme” excuse, it’s hard to accuse any of them of committing crimes of fashion for this event: it would be a little bit arresting someone for their Halloween costume (although don’t think we haven’t considered it…) Nevertheless, we’ve been getting lots of tweets on the subject of “Best Dressed at the Met Costume Institute Gala”, and note with interest the #kristenstewartbestdressed hash tag which some of you have been using in a bid to convince us to crow Kristen as Queen of the MET.

Should we, though? You’ll find photos from last night’s gala below: take a look and don’t forget to tell us what you think of them all. Most importantly: who do YOU think should win Best Dressed?
