My favorites at the Met Gala

The Met Gala, the most expected and commented red carpet in the fashion world – and nowadays in the celebrity world as well! – took place last night in New York. The gala marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit, that this year is “China: Through the Looking Glass” and has as theme (do I really need to say?) the fashion inspired in China.

The Met is like a mix of Oscars and a costume party, and because it’s a fashion party, there is more creativity involved that in a film awards ceremony. It’s not mandatory but, normally, the guests were clothes and/or makeup and hair that is a reference to the exhibition – this year there were a lot of very straight hairstyles or very sleek buns (that leave the eyes a bit more almond shaped!), interesting eyeliners, defined brows and red and wine lipsticks.

Here are the 21 women that for some reason grabbed my attention!
