2014 Met Ball: Kate Hudson, Lupita Nyong'o, & Miley Cyrus Wish List

Coming off the coat tails of her stunning Oscar night Atelier Versace and Zuhair Murad Couture gowns I am hoping that Kate Hudson will keep up her game for the 2014 Met Ball. When picking a look for the Met, Kate usually runs to her gal pal Stella McCartney for a custom gown. Well I am hoping that Kate shuns the gowns and rocks one of the fringe Stella McCartney Fall 2014 RTW mini dresses. I picked this navy and royal blue high neck mini because I want Kate to show off her stunning legs and I think that the color would just accentuate Kate's eyes and bombshell blonde hair. Old Hollywood waves over one shoulder, neutral makeup, a blue Edie Parker clutch, and some simple blue peep toe pumps will finish off this look perfect for the red carpet.
Lupita Nyong'o ran the red carpet during awards season with no fewer than 18 stunning red carpet ensembles in the first 2 months of the year. I am hoping that the new fashion darling will take to the red carpet at the 2014 Met Ball, and I think that this is a very major possibility. While another custom Prada or Miu Miu gown is expected I am going to take my wish is a totally different direction. I think that this orange Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 RTW gown with a mosaic metallic bodice would give Lupita a look that would be admired for being incredibly ballsy. There are not many women in the world that I can picture wearing this gown and being able to rock it off the runway and Lupita is one of them. Some gold jewelry and gold pumps will make for this absolutely amazing look for Lupita's very first Costume Institute Gala.
Miley Cyrus has just put an indefinite postponement on her 'Bangerz' tour so I am not so sure if she will take to the Met Ball red carpet in 2014. Usually Miley does take to this red carpet so it will be different to not see her taking to this red carpet If she does I would love to see Miley wear this Armani Prive Spring 2014 Couture gown with loads of embellishments and spaghetti straps. This is a slinky silhouette that Miley loves when it comes to her formal red carpet dressing as of late. I would add a navy Chanel clutch and some simple black Saint Laurent 'Janis' sandals to complete this amazing red carpet ensemble for Miley.

2014 Met Ball: Kate Bosworth, Lily Collins, Nina Dobrev, & Rita Ora Wish List

Since attending the Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture presentation back in January, Kate Bosworth has graced 4 red carpets where she could have rocked one of the looks but she has yet to pull from the collection. I am wondering if she is saving her Dior Couture moment for the 2014 'Charles James' themed Met Ball. This black and white Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture 1960's inspired cocktail ensemble would be a perfect look for this major red carpet. Most of the attendees will go for full length gowns, and only a few ladies daring to go short. Kate rocks these retro short looks so well and I am praying that she rocks this creation on the red carpet. A bold red clutch, a pair of black and silver Christian Louboutin crystal encrusted sandals, simple diamond studs, a bold red lip, and a sleek high bun will finish off this amazing ensemble for this red carpet.
Last year donning Houghton twice for the 'The Mortal Instruments' promotional tour, Lily Collins single-handedly put the New York based brand on the map. I was lucky enough to take in the Houghton Fall 2014 RTW collection taking to the runway back in February during New York Fashion Week. There were an abundance of looks that I would love to see Lily wear but the one that stood out most to me was this amazing cream silk floral jacquard gown with an elephant ear sleeve top in the same fabric layered over to make up a dramatic ensemble for the 2014 Met Ball. Lily isn't the tallest at 5'5", but she definitely knows how to hold her own in avant garde creations. A sleek up-do, a red lip, and gold sandals will make this the perfect red carpet look for the Met Ball.
Nina Dobrev always rocks the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala and I am excited to see what the 'Charles James' themed red carpet will bring for her this year. She knows how to work the theme and give us a non-costumey look that is usually custom. While this black and green abstract line printed gown doesn't scream Charles James to me I do think that Nina would rock the fuck out of this gown on the red carpet. Hair worn in Hollywood waves over one shoulder, simple kohl rimmed eyes, a black Edie Parker clutch, and black Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals will finish off this look.
Rita Ora knows how to make a major statement on the red carpet and I think that after donning a few other looks from the Moschino Fall 2014 RTW collection, the first for the brand from friend Jeremy Scott, I am hoping that she brings the black and white 'Nutrition Facts' ball gown the same collection. This is going to make for an absolutely stunning red carpet moment that combines both the designs of Charles James and the craziness of Rita Ora. Her signature red lip will undoubtedly be in play, with a simple updo, and a pair of bold colored sandals will make sure that Rita is on the top of every best dressed list from this event.

2014 Met Ball: Anna Kendrick, Charlize Theron, & Jennifer Lawrence Wish List

Anna Kendrick has been kinda on fire when it comes to her red carpet style as of lately. During New York Fashion Week Anna popped up in the front row of several major red carpet labels. Since she wore J. Mendel to the Academy Awards it only seems fit that she will wear Monique Lhuillier to the 2014 Met Ball. This black and pink high low ball gown from the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 RTW collection would be a perfect homage to the themes inspiration, Charles James. Anna would rock this feminine elegant gown on this red carpet. A black Rauwolf clutch, pink sandals, and stunning jewels will finish off this perfect look for the Met Ball red carpet.
Charlize Theron killed it at the Academy Awards in a black Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture gown and $15 million dollars worth of Harry Winston diamonds. If she takes to the red carpet at the 2014 Met Ball I am sure that we will see the Christian Dior spokesmodel rock yet another gown from the label. This black and white Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture strapless gown will be worn either during the Met Ball or the Cannes Film Festival next month and I would love to see Charlize rock it during the Met because I feel like it was made for her statuesque figure. Her cropped hair worn sleekly parted, a bold red lip, simple diamonds, a black clutch, and some black Christian Louboutin sandals would ensure that Charlize has yet another stunning moment on the red carpet.


Another Dior girl that we are bound to see take to the red carpet of the 2014 Met Ball as she is on fire in her career right now. I think that this black chiffon Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture gown with a white sequin under dress would be an awesome option. This is one gown that I would love to see JLaw rock on the red carpet. I feel like this sporty ensemble was crafted with Jennifer in mind, as she does not fair well with the girlier frocks that they try to stick her with, A black Dior clutch and a pair of black simple sandals will finish off this ensemble for this red carpet.
