Emmy Rossum’s fashion can be somewhat hit or miss. She looked pretty banging at last year’s Met Gala, when she was in Donna Karan for the “punk” theme. Emmy was on-point this year in floral Carolina Herrera. This is a gorgeous gown in a very classic cut and retro print. She wears it well. I really like this gown for this event and her styling is spot on. I’m impressed.
Colin Firth’s lady Livia Giuggioli also went for glamour in red Carolina Herrera. She was one of many women in red. This is another gown that fits the night to a T. Look at her amazing necklace and elegant black gloves. So pretty.
Livia tweeted this photo of herself cozying up to Benedict Cumberbatch at dinner last last. A lucky bitch on many levels.
Chiwetel Ejiofor and his girlfriend, Sari Mercer, were another handsome British couple at the Met. Sari’s floral Dolce & Gabanna dress is just too much, though. I thought this monstrosity was Givenchy. There’s too much going on with all the floral appliques, the flouncy details all over and the pale peach color. Who styled her with that horrible satin matching purse? I feel sorry for Sari, but only a little bit because she still gets to go home with Chiwetel.
Solange was also in peach, in a 3.1 Phillip Lim gown that didn’t know whether it wanted to be a flapper or a ball gown. It’s like two different styles tried to have a baby. There’s too much gathered fabric. Maybe this dress is a triumph in that it’s difficult to execute. It sure looks complicated enough, but it’s not flattering. Her hair and makeup are well done though.
Here she is with the designer.
