{Luxe Red Carpet} Met Gala 2016

You can see by the sheer volume of celebrities and designer gowns that the Met Gala is the year’s biggest night in fashion. No Hollywood awards night can ever compete, and the level of creativity of avant garde creations donned by some of the most recognizable people in America make for one incredible evening.

Tonight the celebs hit the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute for its 2016 Gala in NYC. This year’s exhibit was themed “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”.

See what the stars wore on the red carpet, as well as the Luxe Lookbook best and worst dressed.

Taylor Swift in Louis Vuitton (oh, honey)

Is TSwift having a Britney Spears circa 2007 meltdown? Love the dress, but the “new look” she’s going for is either a legit cry for help or sadly trying a little too hard.

And now, I have saved the best for last. This is…this MUST be the dress of the year. A dress that will be referenced for decades to come. The designer is Zac Posen, and I stand in awe of him for a gown which is both classically beautiful and incredibly innovative.
