The 10 Best Dressed List: The 2015 Met Gala

While Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian wore the most revealing dresses at the 2015 Met Gala, few would argue that they were among the best dressed. We’ve taken a look at some of the ladies that impressed us the most.

This year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrated the opening of the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition. The charity event was co-chaired by Jennifer Lawrence, Chinese actress Gong Li, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and others.

1. Reese Witherspoon in Jason Wu

The 39-year-old American actress and producer donned a red structured custom gown by Jason Wu. Our only criticism would be that the dress was rather underwhelming for a fashion event like this one. Reese accessorized with a Tiffany & Co necklace and completed the outfit with a pair of strappy sandals by Charlotte Olympia.

2. Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace

The 45-year-old American actress and model was joined by her boyfriend, hotelier Andre Balazs. She donned a white asymmetrical v-neck gown by Atelier Versace. She styled the understated and seductive dress with Alexandre Birman shoes and Anna Hu earrings.

3. Miley Cyrus in Alexander Wang

The 22-year-old daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus donned a black gown from the Alexander Wang Fall 2015 collection featuring skin-baring cutouts and all-over silver studs. She styled the punk-rock dress with shoes by the same designer and Ana Khouri earrings.

4. Rihanna in Guo Pei Couture

The 27-year-old Barbadian singer, songwriter, actress, and fashion designer did not disappoint in a spectacularly elaborate couture number by Chinese designer Guo Pei featuring a long cape-style coat.

You could almost feel how the fashion world came to a standstill as Rihanna walked down the red carpet in her jaw-dropping yellow gown by the until now unknown Bejing-based designer. She styled the dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin “Toerless Muse” pumps.

5. Sofia Vergara in Marchesa

While her gown paled in comparison to Rihanna’s ensemble, the 42-year-old Colombian-American actress looked classy in her own right wearing a ballet-pink strapless dress by Marchesa. She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Sofia was joined at the event by her fiancé, 38-year-old American actor Joseph Michael “Joe” Manganiello.

6. Lady Gaga In Balenciaga

The 29-year-old entertainer, who was joined on the red carpet by fashion designer Alexander Wang, channeled an Eastern vibe in a Balenciaga gown that showed what the Met Gala is all about. She styled the kimono-inspired floor-length coat gown with sparkling leggings, towering platform heels, and Fred Leighton jewelry.

9. Madonna in Moschino

The 56-year-old entertainer showed up in a custom Moschino dress and matching cape that read “Rebel Heart”, which is the title of her new album. Since we’re used to seeing Madonna in all kinds of tacky outfits, she was one of the positive surprises of the evening.
