My fave of the night was Gisele who indeed looked like a striking gazelle. The drama was the colour and drape of the dress. You believed this fashion fantasy!

Next is JLo. This woman has been so on point with her style recently. The drama was the colour and floral shrug/detail. Another amazing look. It also helps that she and Gisele are extremely beautiful.

Daphne Guinness needed no introduction in this Alexander McQueen creation. She epitomised the event. Her dress really made you reflect on the man himself and his label.

This Zac Posen dress is amazing. The webbed lace detailing and shape gave us true fantasy. Christina Ricci's hair looked a mess though.

Natalia Vodianova in Valentino with the man himself.
This dress ticked all the boxes and had the 'Wow!' factor. The perfect dress for this occasion.

Crystal Renn in Zac Posen. Her hair and dress brought the drama - A fine fantasy. Was this the same woman who flew the flag for the plus-size woman? What happened here then? She's very gaunt.

Joan Small's Givenchy dress was another winner for me as the colour and detailing brought real drama and fantasy to a simple shape. Stunning!

Gywneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker both looked amazing but their outfits could have been worn to any old red carpet do - all too safe for the Met Gala.
Unlike Anna Dello Russo in this tuxedo who never plays it safe, she accessorised with an egg-like hat by Alan Journo. I love her fearlessness of fashion! She looked fabulous!

Thandie Newton and Taylor Swift also looked great on the night...
Now for... Andre Leon Talley. I tweeted last night that I was bemused and confused. I still am today.
Vera Wang in her own design. Has she always looked this thin?! She also cannot carry off neon lime! Not a good look at all.
Naomi is one of the most amazing faces and bodies in the world. She is wearing McQueen and all the elements are there; drama, fantasy and beauty. Yet this is so wrong in so many ways. Naomi, if you're reading this, let me have the honour to style you? PLEASE?

Serena Williams, what was she thinking? All she had to do was get rid of the hat and cuff, wear her hair loosely up and it would of been an ok but still not a 'Wow' look.

One final thing. Madonna, is a mere mortal after all...she now has a little belly! Shock, horror and amazement. Maybe she's reduced the daily 5hr or whatever stints in her gym. She looks so much better.
Bravo to her for not trying to look 25 years younger for a change.

Who had the 'Wow!' and 'How?' factor in your opinion?
Please let me know.
