This is the 3rd consecutive year that I have posted a red carpet round-up of the Met Gala. This year's event took place last night, and the theme was 'China: Through The Looking Glass'.

With the MET Gala red carpet I am always looking for the WOW factor and dresses that fit the theme. I like to see dresses that you wouldn't expect to see at any other event.
WOW Factor: Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Karen Elson, Zendaya Coleman and Fan Bingbing. It is not to say that I adore these 5 looks, but they are suitably fitting for the occasion.
Best Theme Dress: Georgia May Jagger and Chloe Sevigny
Most Daring: Whilst most would say Rihanna wore the most daring look, I would actually say FKA Twigs took the biggest risk. Wearing one of the most talked about dresses from A/W15 as seen at LFW, I couldn't think of anyone else more perfect who could successfully wear this risqué dress.
Classic Beauty: Poppy Delevingne, Amanda Seyfried
Most Popular Colour: Red
Most Disappointing: I hate to say it but...Elizabeth Banks. I usually adore her red carpet style, but on this occasion I was expecting more.
So how does this compare to last years event? Last year we saw a lot more texture, embellishment and varied hemlines, but each year is completely different and we never know what we are going to see.
Who was your best dressed?
