Met Gala 2016 Part 1: Dresses

Anna Wintour, Jonathan Ive, Miuccia Prada, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift and Nicolas Chesquiere

I think I was more excited about the MET Gala than those who were actually going (hopefully in a few years i will say “I was less excited as Pili from 2016 to go” get it?). I just love how this is an entire night for fashion and to show everyone's pieces of art, because in the end all this dresses and fashion are pieces of art. So, Monday night I spent the entire night texting with my friend about the celebrities and all their beautiful dresses, makeup and hair. Since there was so much to say about the night I decided to divided in two posts, the first one, this one,  is about the dresses and the second one will be about makeup and hair. I have to be honest and tell you that I was a big fan of this years theme and I was shocked by how long my list of favorites actually was. Here is a little recap on all my favorites outfits:

From left to right: Anna Ewers in Boss; Allison Williams in Peter Pilotto; Dee Hilfiger in Tommy Hilfiger; Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger.

I really love how a lot of the designer work with a metallic look to stick with the theme. Both of Tommy Hilfiger looks are just dreamy, I’m a huge fan of everything Ombré so Dee Hilfiger is amazing as well as Gigi’s sheer and her metallic manicure and fingers.

Alexa Chung in Thakoon; Brie Larson in Proenza Schouler; Tavi Gevinson in Coach; Chloe Grace Moretz in Coach.

First, I’d like to point out how I was never a fan of suits on girls, I always enjoyed dresses way more but this Thakoon one is a huge exception, Alexa definitely rocked it and I love not only the low cut but the cute little rhinestone it has. The two Coach dresses, Chloe’s with little metallic  details to stick with the theme and Tavi’s which had a pretty classy look, are amazing.

Nina Dobrev in Marchesa; Amber Heard in Ralph Lauren Collection; Rachel McAdams in Valentino Haute Couture; Zoey Deutch in Dolce & Gabbana.

I have to say that Rachel McAdams was one of my ultimate favorite one, and of course it was Valentino, but not only was her dress beautiful but her makeup was impeccable as well. Also Amber Heard blew me away, her dress and hair just scream perfection.


Blake Lively in Burberry; Claire Danes in Zac Posen; Adriana Lima in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture; Zoe Saldana in Dolce & Gabbana.

There is so much to say from this pictures. First, Blake Lively can look amazing in everything and this one is no exception I love the little details with the red flowers on the side, but I do have to say I was not a fan of the back of the dress, but the front part totally makes it up. Next, I mean Zac Posen made a dress that lights up, how amazing is that? I was like: this.is.nuts. Last one is Zoe’s one, which the tails looks like the most beautiful and delicate peacock.

Emma Roberts in Tory Burch; Katie Holmes in Zac Posen, Karlie Kloss in Brandon Maxwell; Lorde in Valentino.

I’d like to say how Emma Roberts is really fighting for the best one with Rachel McAdams, because not only is that dress amazing but her makeup and hair are just unbelievable. Although, Katie’s dress is amazing, I did not like her hair and how it cover part of the dress, but from what we can see-which is most of it- it is a beautiful dress. Karlie Kloss is the queen of freaking everything, so no comments here. Lastly, Lorde had the ultimate accessory with that cast, way to go and be original, Ella! Btw: I hope you heal soon, in the meantime saw how everyone sign here cast, jealous.
