Finally. A theme that means even Madonna felt it appropriate to cover up, yes the Met Ball Gala has come around again. This time the look was China: Through the Looking Glass and meant we were treated to some truly stunning gowns. Why there were so many adorned with poppies seemed a little odd so I looked it up, seems it's a faux-pas on the part of the star's stylists. Apparently In Chinese history, the poppy stings more than a rose thorn as it is widely associated with the Opium Wars in the 19th century. It's possible they got confused with peonies (the traditional floral symbol of China) however they could have looked it up - took me all of 25 seconds to see this on wikipedia! Anyway, slightly shaky history lesson over we can pop the awkward poppies to one side and concentrate on the gowns. Behold...
Kendall Jenner - There's no denying she's drop dead gorgeous (more so than Kim even) but there's a bit too much boob for me here. It wouldn't have taken much to cut a little more generously round the cup and cover her properly.
Anne Hathaway - Am captivated by this look but not sure it's in a good way. It's a little too star wars screwed little red riding hood for me!
Chloe-Sevigny - Oh Holy Crap. This girl makes Carey Mulligan look positively ravishing!
